So, word on the street in Atlanta is that Sheree Whitfield, one of the original cast members on Bravo TV’s hit reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta is getting the boot and will not be returning for the next season! According to several close insiders, Sheree was complaining about her salary not being nearly enough especially with fellow castmember NeNe Leakes netting a reported $750k per season. The execs and producers at Bravo TV were allegedly disappointed and insulted with this request which led to them letting Sheree go. All of this is hearsay right now but will be confirmed either way shortly. Stay tuned!
NeNe Leakes may a reality TV star, aspiring broadcast journalist and all around fixture on the Atlanta party scene but she can add restaurant owner to her list of titles. NeNe Leakes is the proud owner of a Famous Famiglia Pizzeria at the Sacramento International Airport. Famous Famiglia Pizzeria is an Italian pizza franchise which NeNe opted to purchase as she didn’t want to a restaurant which would require her full-time attention. I’m sure she won’t be traipsing through Famous Famiglia anytime soon in her legendary six inch Louboutins but one never knows when she might pop in with her Bravo TV film crew behind her for an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I wish her nothing but success!

News hit the airwaves throughout Atlanta this morning that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes is going to be a grandmother! Her oldest son Bryson Bryant who has dealt with an arrest earlier in the year and has had some other disciplinary issues recently announced that his girlfriend was expecting sometime in 2011. Nene Leakes is surely not happy about this latest development in her already downward spiraling life as she is currently undergoing a nasty divorce with her husband, Greg.
I wish her the best of luck and hope that this child will spark some sense of urgency and responsibility in her eldest son Bryson’s life as it seems his lack of drive and determination are a direct consequence of his “spoiled” upbringing!
I have to admit that I am so anxious to watch Season 3 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. It’s such a glamorous trainwreck and it makes for great watercooler talk the next morning especially after a particularly dramatic episode. Well, it looks like there is going to be one less housewife after this upcoming season.
