Deck the Halls With E! Specials with NENE LEAKES

NeNe Leakes is seriously unstoppable, you guys. Just weeks after being hospitalized for blood clots in her lungs, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has once again been making trips from her home in Atlanta to L.A.  So pull up a chair and let me pour you out some good ole reality TEA ! Sometime over the past few weeks the reality queen managed to sit down with E!’s Giuliana Rancic and tape an hour-long tell-all special that will air on the network on December 16 at 10 p.m. ET.
Earlier this week we told you that NeNe would address her difficult childhood, past as an exotic dancer, and failed first relationship to her now-husband Gregg, among other things, and now we have our first look at the highly-anticipated hour.
Apparently NeNe’s sitdown is part of a larger E! initiative to start covering more reality stars (E! and Bravo are both part of NBC Universal) and we couldn’t be more psyched. Though the below clip is brief and also includes footage from E!’s other upcoming special, “Biggest Reality Scandals,” there’s definitely some screentime with NeNe and Gregg.
First, we see NeNe punching the air repeatedly (she’s a fighter, y’all!) and then we see her sitting on a couch with her boo as she says, “There’s a lot of things people don’t know about me.” Color us intrigued! As can be expected, she looks flawless with her platinum blonde hair slicked back and a frilly and feminine white blouse.

Nene may be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta

WELP the Tea is about to be spilled I hope you are ready for all the foolery that I am about to say what the lovely Nene Leakes has said. OMG news, you guys! NeNe Leakes is hinting that she has a brand new show in the works and we couldn’t be more excited about it. This is coming at the perfect time in NeNe’s career, since she has clearly started to outgrow her involvement on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

When several of her Twitter followers commented that NeNe needs to have her own program, and preferably a talk show, NeNe’s responses were nothing short of a confirmation that this endeavor will indeed happen!
“Keep ur eyes open 4 it,” NeNe replied to one of her fans’ suggestions that she needs a whole hour of her favorite Housewife.
Meanwhile, when another follower specified that NeNe would make a great talk show host, the Glee star tweeted back, “It’s coming.” Yay!
A lot of Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were disappointed with last night’s new episode, which mainly focused on Kandi Burruss’s man, Todd Tucker, and his strained relationship with his future mother-in-law, Mama Joyce. One fan complained that there need to be more scenes with NeNe and that she’s not getting nearly enough airtime.
“It’s all apart of their plan! We see,” NeNe responded.
Another viewer declared the new episode a total fail, writing, “These girls tonight are a hot mess. Waiting for more Nene scenes,” to which NeNe replied, “I know u are! I was bored 2 tears.”
NeNe later echoed her own thoughts, updating, “Been bored to tears! Watching Soul Train Awards now so I can get my life.”

Well all I have to say is I hope she has everything in order because in my opinion she makes the show and I would be sad to see her go. I have heard that Andy Cohen is leaving Bravo and maybe she is Following him. Lets wait and see what happens.

Thicker than Water, Ben Tankard and his riches!

So this is the Tea Bags on this oh so holy Ben Tankard’s journey to fortune and extravagance certainly didn’t start with lots of money. Perhaps his best (and most well-known) quote so far is from his new docu-series Thicker Than Water’s premiere sneak peek video, “I’ve been poor, now I’m rich. Believe me, rich is better.” And just how rich are we talking?

Ben has a plethora of jobs, which go a little something like this: he’s president at Ben-Jamin’ Music & Film, an NBA D-league motivational speaker, a pastor, and a gospel musician and producer. His personal website divulges details about the Ben Tankard “brand,” which include, as quoted:

  • World’s best-selling gospel/jazz musician/producer of all time. (15 Gold/6 Platinum records)
  • 12 Stellar Awards, 7 Gospel Excellence Awards, 2 Vision Awards, 1 Blue Mic Award, 8 Dove Award Nominations, 3 Grammy Award Nominations, 1 Soul Train Award Nomination
  • Performs in over 100 concerts and personal appearances yearly

What do all of these jobs and accolades add up to? According to, Ben Tankard is worth a cool $5 million dollars. But with the plethora of cars and planes, the three-level mansion they unabashedly refer to as the “Tankard Palace,” and all those kids, could that really be all he’s worth? It certainly seems like they are spending a lot more than they are bringing in!

Ben and Jewel Tankard in Front of Various Cars and Planes

So how much is the 49-year-old reality star making off of Bravo? This is a wild guess, but we’d estimate that Bravo is paying the Tankards on par with (or even less than) what the Real Housewives of Miami make — “[At] the high end, they make somewhere in the $55,000 to $75,000 range.”

MORE: Thicker Than Water: ow Did Ben and Jewel Tankard Make Their Money?

Ben has made his millions from various ventures, but none of his money comes from his ministries, which he and his wife Jewel have been running for almost 12 years. And though his money doesn’t (and hasn’t) come from his church, his church is very focused on money. Wealth (or at least the pursuit of wealth) is the foundation of his teachings and sermons.

He revealed his favorite part about being wealthy to TV Guide Magazine: “When you see someone that needs help, you can do more than pray for them, you can pay for them. That is why we love to be able to volunteer as pastors — we don’t take a salary.”

Married to Medicine Splits…. Mariah and Quad friendship Severed

Chile now this is the ultimate Pickle. Now the things you are about to read I didn’t write.  This came from @FunkyDineva. When I tell you this is the funniest ever. The TV and these Cameras will make your friends go away.

You and your best friend thinking about doing reality television with one another? Do your relationship a favor and DON’T. Quiet as its kept, many close relationships find it hard to sustain after reality television comes into play. Well, as much as it saddens me to report this, Quadd Lunceford and Mariah Huq are no longer friends, following season 1 of Married to Medicine. Things have gotten so bad that restraining orders have been filed, production has been halted on several
occasions, and network executives have gotten involved. Catch these T’s.

reco chapple quad lunceford
If you are curious as to what the central theme of Season 2 of Married to Medicine will be, wonder no more. Season 2 you can expect the central storyline to be the dissipation of Quadd & Mariah’s friendship. Things are pretty bad guys. Ordinarily I would call things like this “fake” and made for tv, but because I’m a lady of the night, I’ve gotten the opportunity to witness some things when the cameras were not rolling. Chile we were down to the steakhouse and things got REAL. Purses hit the floor, someone was escorted out the restaurant, people were called b!itches, all while patrons were trying to tootsie roll down to da bar.
What good is a reality television show without a good gay guy sidekick. Enters fashion designer Reco Chapple. Viewers can expect to see jovial developing relationship between Quad  and college friend Reco Chapple. The gag is, Reco and Mariah WERE Childhood besties. Quiet as its kept, Marriah filed a restraining order against Reco Chapple earlier this month, but lost the case in court yeterday ( 11/25/13)  after failing to convince the judge that she feared for her life.
restrainign order
It’s been reported that non of the cast is really featuring Mariah. The former television producer who once boasted about being the creative genius behind Married to Medicine seems to be losing control of what she has previously refereed to as “her show”. The entire cast minus Mariah have recently returned from a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains that was filmed for the show. Supposedly the cast asked that Mariah not be allowed to attend. Production, having their own issues with Mariah gladly obliged them.
Chile it looks as if Married To Medicine was a prescription for disaster and someone’s “Gay Husband” wrote it. Catch that!  There is so much tea, so many details, so many lies, so many eye witness incidents that have yet to hit the forefront. Ohhh but don’t you worry, The Doll will be sure to report on ALL of them as the time comes.

Ohh if any of y’all care, that white women with all those lips wont be returning for season two.


Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 | NeNe’s Bloopers

OMG, Chile this is so funny! Nene Leakes is funny ole FISH. BravoTV just posted a video of a bunch of outtakes from NeNe Leakes’ hilarious interviews on The Real Housewives of Atlanta — we literally LOL’d!
The video starts off with a chorus of “hunni’s” and segues into a bunch of clips of NeNe’s signature “bitch, please” laughter. Following the funny montage, NeNe starts making outrageous faces, complete with ridiculous sound effects.

Next, NeNe breaks into a frenzied snapping sequence, shouting “Yass” at the top of her lungs.
Last but not least, it’s a “girl, bye” remix to close out the amusing collection of NeNe’s bloopers.
Season 6 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is definitely filled with major drama right now. Phaedra Parks is dealing with her husband’s possible infidelity, all thanks to Kenya Moore. Porsha Stewart is in the middle of an ugly divorce. And, Kandi Burruss is trying to plan her wedding, while simultaneously dealing with the fact that her Mama doesn’t approve of her fiancé, Todd Tucker.
But, as far as NeNe goes, she’s just loving life and this video proves it. Not only does she look amazing (that hair!)Hunnie that Hair is Amaze Balls and she clearly is looking like a Billion Bucks, she’s also glowing with newly-wedded bliss. For the first time in a long time, it seems like NeNe is actually having fun being a Real Housewife.
NeNe better keep up with this foolishness and continues to share her upbeat, hilarious side with us during the rest of Season 6 — it makes the show so entertaining!

Watch Blood Sweat And Heels Season 1 | New Series: Blood, Sweat, and Heels

Bravo announced three new shows today scheduled for January debut, exclusively on The Hollywood Reporter. One of the shows is a reality TV series called “Blood, Sweat & Heels,” which will follow “a group of up-and-coming movers and shakers in New York’s elite circles of real estate, fashion, and media.”
Now this cast chile the first one is a pickle and a half. It  features five women, including “video vixen turned realtor Melyssa Ford, real estate partner Brie Bythewood, modeling agency owner Mica Hughes, affordable-style expert Daisy Lewellyn, A Belle in Brooklyn blogger and author Demetria Lucas, and style and pop culture journalist Geneva Thomas.”
Debuting on January 5th at 9/8C, the show chronicles their journey to the top of their respective fields and the sacrifices they must make along the way. Bravo writes: “the self-starters built their reputations and successes without the help of a man, but they never underestimate the power of a girlfriend’s support. These independent ladies are aggressive in their pursuit of personal and career goals, but will the cost of success prove too steep as they climb their way to the top?”

I just got one question does Melyssa Ford really think someone is going to take her serious at selling real estate after her booty has been all over the tv screens showing all her body? Chile well I guess we will see how this is going to pan out.

Ellen Forces Nene to go on Bethenny’s Talk Show

NeNe “VERY RICH” Leakes was reportedly told that if she wanted to do the uber popular daytime talk show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, she would have to appear on the other daytime talk show she’s executive producing. Hunnie now that is the Peppermint Tea. 

That would be former Real Housewife of New York star Bethenny Frankel‘s new show “Bethenny,” which had a successful test run last summer, but is currently having a bit of problem with the ratings. Yes, they’re on par with the ratings of similar shows that launched last year, but a lot of those have since been cancelled.
So that, of course, means that Bethenny needs better guests. Enter NeNe and the alleged bum-rushing.  

I’m not sure why. I mean, Bethenny is still the most successful housewife in franchise history, so…oh wait, I just answered my own question. Yup now thats the SHADE, and that comes only from a southern DIVA.

The source added, “The booker for Bethenny’s show used to work for Ellen, and this was made clear to NeNe that this order was coming directly from Ellen. NeNe didn’t want to ruffle any feathers, so she did it.” See that Nene is a smart chica, she went on Bethenny show cause she has good sense and thats all I have to say.

Sheree Whitfield, on Life After!!! Chile Bye!!!!

Chile now this is going to be a pure pickle. I thought we had got rid of Sheree Whitfield. I guess she is saying that she still have one more thing to show us. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star is slated to appear on TV One’s docu-series, Life After, airing on Wednesday, October 23.
The popular program features celebrities speaking candidly about their lives, complete with confessions and surprises. Sheree recently confirmed the date for her special on Twitter when one of her followers asked her when it was airing.
“My airing is on Oct 23 at 8pm #LifeAfter,” Sheree responded to her fan.
Last we heard, Sheree had given up on building her home and was living the single life. We’re looking forward to more updates in a few weeks.
It will be nice to get a behind-the-scenes look into Sheree’s life after The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
If Iyanla couldn’t fix her life, i don’t think a Life After is what she needs.

Preview: Bravo Tv’s ‘Thicker Than Water’ Starring Ben Tankard

Chile now I have seen it all. Bravo said we are going to let the lord come in and bless the station. Now this family I just don’t know, the gospel world as we know it will talk about this along with the other show Preachers of LA. Ok, I first heard of this family from another reality show that didn’t get a lot of acclaim, The show was called Amateur Millionaires. Now the cameras followed several individuals  that were so called millionaires that were involved in the Network Marketing World. Hunnie let them tell it they are rich and god wanted them to be rich, But by the preview of the show called “Thicker Than Water” they are Ratchett in the worst way. He is the world’s best-selling Gospel Jazz musician, has won twelve Stellar Gospel Music Awards, and has multiple Grammy™ and Dove Award nominations from his Gold and Platinum albums.  With twenty years of Gospel Jazz, Ben Tankard is continuing to sculpt his musical legacy as one of music’s preeminent artist.

Tankard is also gearing up for the debut of his new reality television series Thicker Than Water: The Tankards, which will premiere on BRAVO TV this fall.  The show is produced by Sirens Media with Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Lucilla D’Agostino, Kris Lindquist and Michael Call as Executive Producers.  Tankard’s new docu-series follows him – former professional basketball player turned popular gospel singer/recording artist and minister, his blended family and their journey in expanding the family fortune.  From music-producing to NBA life coaching and motivational speaking, his business-oriented family strives to keep on top of their game, but finds their true passion lies in ministry. 

In companion to his new TV show, Tankard is putting the finishing touches on a new book The Full Tank Life (Ben-Jamin’ Publishers / Thomas Nelson Publishers) which will be released in early September in sync with the show.  Tankard’s book is an inspirational how-to guide for having a Full (Tank) Life in every area:  family, health, wealth, career and spiritual walk.
