OK now that we got that out the way, MediaTakeOut.com EXCLUSIVELY heard that Sheree Whitfield was FIRED from the Atlanta Housewives yesterday.
According to an EX-TREEEEEEMELY reliable insider, the producers informed Sheree yesterday that she was FIRED, and that her services were NO LONGER needed on the show.
And we’re told that Sheree didn’t take it too well. You see, the producers FLEW HER OUT to NY, with the other castmembers to take part in the BRAVO UPFRONT PARTY, in NYC. But before the event, Bravo told her that she was fired. And word is that Sheree BURST INTO TEARS and started BEGGING to keep her job, saying that she NEEDED THE MONEY and everything.
MediaTakeOut.com also heard that Sheree was SO DISTRAUGHT after learned the news, that she didn’t take part in yesterday’s UPFRONTS.
Oh, but DON’T expect a confirmation from ANYONE until AFTER this seasons reunion show. Even though EVERYONE knows, they have a CONFIDENTIALITY CLAUSE which prevents them from discussing it. (So if Sheree wants her last few checks, she’s gonna keep her lips ZIPPED too).
She should have saved her pennies from the show, bought a reasonably priced home for cash, and prepared.
Instead, it seems she was wallowing in high priced crap and living like te paycheck would never stop.
Ah, heck. I kind of liked her. Although, a Bentley? Really?
I do believe she was fired, but the bursting into tears and begging for her job part is all courtesy of MediaTakeOut. Kandi said months ago that major changes had been made to cast for the future season so Sheree has known for a while.
Sheree: Your fashion line was a flop,your marriage tanked and now you've been dumped by the RHOA. Way to go sister: you're batting a 1000!!!
I liked her. I'll be less likely to tune in since she is gone.
Why Sheree? Kandi and Cynthia are the ones who need to go.
r9 = Kim
r8 that moment was the peak of RHOA. A queen fighting with a delusional bitch. Im going to miss She by Sheree.
It's about time.
Wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam tapped to be the new housewife next season? She made an appearance on the "Nene's Adventure in LA" episode.
Sheree is boring. What will happen to her dream home?
The writing was on the wall, from last year.
I think they threatened her last season because she was so boring, and that's why she started attacking everybody this season, to create some drama. But she's still boring.
In fact, I'm assuming that the only reason they kept her on for this season was because she was Kim's only friend (on the show), and they needed her to play off of Kim throughout the season. Now that the season's done, Sheree's done.
I wouldn't doubt it if Nene and Kim were out, also. The finale seems to hint that Nene is moving to LA, and Kim really has no purpose on the show. Kim doesn't attend events anymore, and she has minimal interaction with the other ladies.
Phaedra is really the star of the show now, and Cynthia and Kandi are barely hanging on. Judging from the RHONY shake-up and the OC's tanking ratings, it seems that all the all the franchises are suffering.
Bravo seems to be doing better with male/female mixed casts, like Chef Roble, Shahs of Sunset, and Most Eligible Dallas.
I also think that the new shows like Kathy's talk show and Around the World in 80 Plates, are going to do really well.
The Housewives fad has been on a steady decline, so I'm glad that Bravo has planned ahead, and is starting to introduce new programming.
[quote]I do believe she was fired, but the bursting into tears and begging for her job part is all courtesy of MediaTakeOut. Kandi said months ago that major changes had been made to cast for the future season so Sheree has known for a while.
But with her massive ego I'm sure she didn't think it would be her. And I do believe she was begging and bursting in tears. Rumor has it she lives in an apt complex behind the Walgreen's on North Ave. Anyone that knows that complex knows she's broke. You also factor in she hasn't bothered to use the show to go further, especially after the clothing line failed. So what's she going to do now?
[quote]So what's she going to do now?
Find a new rich husband of course!
Time to call Pookie and them.
[quote]Find a new rich husband of course!
Too late for that r19 she been exposed for what she is. Only a rich man living in a cave would fall for her now.
She'll have to sell that self-portrait she had done for her birthday. That should get her at least a few hundred.
If not, she'll have to go live with Lisa Wu in her hovel.
Sheree was fired because she is POOR. End of story.
You can't have a poor Real Housewife. It's just not done.
I guess we finally know who was going to check her, boo.
All of the Real Housewives franchise should go off the air. Bravo needs to send Andy Cohen's faggot ass on his way. Ugh!!!
Oh well, she can always sell her pussy on the street.
Found this on another blog (Rhymes with Snitch)
Where things seem to have broken down is during the week before the reunion when contracts were negotiated and finalized. There was some shred of hope for her staying up until that week. Apparently, she went into negotiations with an ego oblivious to the obvious fact her days were numbered. Instead of begging to be kept she acted like a diva and began making demands. Kim, Sheree and Nene were the only original housewives left. In general these three should have been able to negotiate from a place of strength. However Sheree had no strength because over the course of the show she lost her house, spent all her money, and had no social ties. If they were recruiting today (which they are/were) Sheree would not even be considered. So she blew it and she's out. Sorry Sheree fans. You can look forward to her losing her mind on the reunion though, so there is that. Meanwhile, it looks like the answer to Sheree's question, "Who gon' check me boo?" is ...Bravo.
F&F for the asshole at R24.
I guess she won't build her mansion now. Sheree is so delusional.
My HAIR is LAYED like ... UNEMPLOYMENT!
What role does Andy Cohen play in deciding who stays and who goes? It's weird how he can get so chummy with the casts, have them on his show and kiss their ass and then shitcan them the next day. I realize that's business, but this is the first instance where we essentially see it play out before our eyes because Andy has turned himself into a celebrity as well. It's like a real life Celebrity Apprentice where the stakes are actual jobs!
On the other hand, it's sad how many of these "housewives" have made a career out of these fleeting shows and have allowed this to become their sole source of income as if the gravy train would never stop rolling in. I can totally see Sheree begging for her job as it does seem to be her only source of income.
Somebody at Bravo better check Andy's ass or he'll be out of the job too.
Kandi's fat ass needs to go next. The only thing she cares about is non-stop promoting of her brand.
I thought Andy owns Bravo? I'm sorry but I can't stand Andy. I get the vibe he is a misogynist because he always depicts women in a negative way. He was cheering when he had a female porn star coming on his stupid, After the Show. I was saying to myself, uh? your gay, why are you happy a female porn star is coming on your show? Does this clown like to see women being situations in which they are being degraded? He loves to see women fight when he has his reunions.
I can't stand Kim and I think she is a major gold digging slut. Also, Kim's father is a sleaze ball who seems like he is trying to hang around to sponge off of his son-in-law Croy. Kim is thee worst person out of all of the housewives. You know these housewife shows are desperate for ratings when they have Kandi talking about selling sex toys ,and the looney tune Tamra on OC Housewives whose always talking about something sexual. Tamara needs a long cold shower because that girl is sexually a psycho, get a life girl!
Jeff's show has received very positive reviews and he going to flip houses again soon.
R33 I agree with you. I used to like Kandi ,but I think Kandi has turned out to be really sleazy.
Andy's not the one making these decisions. First of all, Bravo has cut back on his management responsibilities to he can focus on his stupid show. But, either way, before getting green lit for another season the show's producers have to outline to Bravo the stories they plan to tell. Together, they talk about the cast so they can determine if each will be bringing something to the table.
The decision to shit-can Sheree was likely made the producers, who recognized you can't get blood or story from a stone.
I didn't really like Sheree that much, but I think that sucks that she got knocked off. A lot of that BS is scripted,so they couldn't get creative enough to continue with Sheree on the show? Tamara was in an apartment for awhile and they continued with her. I hope down the road someone writes a book about these users on Bravo.
They should fire Kim. She's dull since she met Kroy. Completely humorless.
[quote] A lot of that BS is scripted,so they couldn't get creative enough to continue with Sheree on the show?
That's part of the problem. People are starting to see through the scripted bullshit, and they're tuning out.
Atlanta barely had a storyline this year, and Marlo was the only one who brought any excitement to the show. Everything else was obviously scripted.
On the OC, everything has fallen apart. The only storyline there was Brianna's illness. All other situations were forced and stupid.
New York is such a flop that it hasn't even premiered yet.
Even Bethenny's show is obviously scripted, and she was supposed to be the most spontaneous and dramatic of the bunch.
I think that these shows tend to go stale after one or two seasons, and the whole Housewives thing seems to be on its last leg. People see through the fake, and they won't keep watching unless there's real drama.
[quote]Kim is thee worst person out of all of the housewives.
She is nowhere near this monstrosity of a human being. And I use the term "human" very loosely.
NY comes back in June. I watched the trailer and it was awful.

Congrats, you are officially the stupidest person on Datalounge. And that's saying something!
Sheree hooked her caboose to the wrong train. Kim now has a spin-off and I'm guessing won't be returning to the ATL cast so Sheree is left without any friends on the cast. Bravo decided to remove her to appease Nene.
I hope they don't add Manlo to the cast because she is the reason I stopped watching the rest of this season. I can't stand that woman. She makes the other housewives including Nene look proper.
If Bravo was smart, they'd have canned NeNe.
No matter how much Andy and Anderson Cooper refuse to believe it, NeNe has turned off a lot of viewers these past 2 seasons.
Agree r44. Andy and Anderson think she's some sort of ultimate fag-hag. NeNe's has turned off a lot of viewers she has a huge ego and those floppy tits need to be tied down !
Who hoo , I can't imagine what's going on in that over inflated bitches house right now . She's probably having a meltdown , like the time she did in her party planners office, talking a mile a minute, wavin that finger in the air at Bravo ( the fucking nerve.....I'm Sheree !). Good luck honey. Try getting that non existent house built now. Maybe you'll have to get a real job now .
They ax Sheree but keep dull as dishwater Cynthia?
The Housewife franchise is on its last legs and if I were the execs at Bravo I'd be worrid. They've been recycling the same formula too much. All of their shows have identical formats, 'characters', etc. And nothing happens except that each person tries to find a catch phrase, quirk or table to flip that will make them the cultural go to for the moment. There aren't plots, suspense or anything that makes TV worth watching. I used to watch most of the Housewifes but now I can't stomach any of them.
Sheree will probably end up having to move in with her daughter and the next time we'll see her it will be a mug shot for getting in a physcial altercation with her son-in-law.
Say what you want about Nene, but she is leveraging this thing very well. Now she's in a sitcom pilot. Now it could fall apart tomorrow, but in the meantime she's still in demand. I really hope she is saving her money.
I'm sure next season will see a reunion of Kim and Nene.
That guy she exposed as a phony doctor, and who called her ' lookin like a man' must be laughing now. Same with all her other dates she felt she was so far above.
Was the piece at the OP written by mhb?
I totally believe that she cried and begged to keep her job. Since the "some seven figures" never materialized, she desperately needs that Bravo check. She's broke and desperate so of course she begged and pleaded to keep her job.
The BHers are making in the $125K range per season. One of the sites said that Bethany and Nene were the highest paid at about $250K per season. So what was Sheree making?
If they were paying her $10 an hour, she was over-paid.
I will miss Sheree, and I will especially miss Miss Lawrence. Sheree seemed to live very irresponsibly concerning money but I like her a lot.
I'm sick of Nene but I will miss her family if she leaves the show. Her younger son seems like such a clever and nice young man.
I agree that Nene is getting a big ego. I used to like Nene before ,but now her ego is out of control and totally obnoxious. Like hell I'm going to watch Kim's show because I can't stand her! She reminds of total white trash! Kim hit the gold digging lottery when she reeled in Kroy. I wonder how Kroy's parents feel about slutty Kim? Either Kroy is a very nice guy and he is being taken for a ride, or he is a complete idiot. How about those huge photos of naked Kim all over their mansion walls?! I love it when Kim commented about the size of the stone of her diamond ring to Sheree, Kroy was going to buy me a 25 kart diamond ,but they just had a 10 kart ring available at the jewelers?! LOL! If you have the money, they will get you a 25 kart diamond ring. I worked for an estate jeweler who knew the business inside and out, and Kim is full of crap! as always!
Kroy isn't a star player. I think he only made $500K last season. NFL contracts aren't guaranteed.
So basically, give it a year,or 2, Kroy will get injured, or lose his contract, the money will run out, and Kim, the money whore, will be on to the next one. And Kroy will come out.
The lesson to be learned from Sheree and fellow ex-housewife Lisa Wu Hartwell. ... NFL money is here today and gone tomorrow.
Kim and the family will be bankrupt and in foreclosure within 10 years.
I loved the broadcast of the latest episode with the on screen tweets and someone mentioned Sheree showing up to Phaedras event with raggedy hair. I guess Ms. Lawrence doesnt work for free.
On Part 1 of the reunion show tonight, Sheree said that she's restarting her She by Sheree line.
She also took a lot of flack for still talking about having a house built when it's been months and months with no work done at all.
And still no child support resolution from her ex.
You could tell that Sheree was BS'ing about that fake house again on that. They cut to the others, rolling eyes, and when Andy asked Phadra if she'd seen the house, and she said what she saw was "weeds, and dirt"
NeNe called it Neverland, cause it ain't never gonna be built.
R63, she shouldn't need to take any flack whether or not she is building her home. What the hell business is it of the others on that show anyway? That is really stupid. At the reunion they said Kim makes more money than Kroy? And their house is rented? Kim just doesn't learn. She always wants to live about here means. Kim said that she and Kroy are aware that their money and life style is not going to last forever? right! I don't like Kim at all and I think she is a major con-artist. I also believe, besides being big Pap's mistress, she was a prostitute at one time in her life. She is just white trash and she is very disturbing to me.
That is so true, r65.
[quote] At the reunion they said Kim makes more money than Kroy? And their house is rented? Kim just doesn't learn. She always wants to live about here means.
Okay, so anyway, I can't believe Kim revealed that little tidbit about making more money than Kroy. Isn't that embarassing for him? She must have caught a lot of shit for that.
I was wondering why Andy was questioning Kim so much about her spending. He brought up the house, the ring, the car, and a boat.
I guess he doesn't want her to be in the same situation as Sheree. Which tells me that Kim is the next one to be axed.
Andy better watch out--Shemale's gonna call BooBoo on him.
[quote]At the reunion they said Kim makes more money than Kroy? And their house is rented? Kim just doesn't learn.
The house is no longer a rental. Kim & Kroy have bought it now.
At the reunion, did Sheree know by then that she was going to get chopped? or was it after the reunion that they give her the bad news? I'm waiting for Sheree to blow up on Andy ,and hold him hostage with a bomb until he signs the contract for Sheree for another season.
[quote]I guess he doesn't want her to be in the same situation as Sheree. Which tells me that Kim is the next one to be axed.
I think she's already off the show, since she has the spinoff and refuses to interact with the rest of the cast. I doubt they would spin her off and then spin her back on when her classy sideboob wedding show fails.
Those Atlanta girls brought it last night. That reunion was nasty. I loved the way that Nene shut Sheree down about her kid. That was probably when Nene demanded that the producers fire Sheree.
The reunion was better than this season's episodes. Sheree was definitely lying. How did the contractor misappropriate money? She's crazy. I also couldn't believe Kim said she made more than Kroy.
[quote]I also couldn't believe Kim said she made more than Kroy.
Kim makes $750K/season on RHoA. That doesn't include appearances, wig sales, etc...
Kroy made $500K/season from football.
It served its purpose in shutting down the gold digger comments.
[quote] It served its purpose in shutting down the gold digger comments.
True, but it also made him look like a crappy 5th rate NFL player. When you think of the millions the big NFL stars make, she really made Kroy look like a loser.
I loved NeNe's eye rolls when Sheree and Kim were speaking. Of course, she does that every reunion, but it's still funny.
Some of these gals make $125K per SEASON??? My god. We used to make one MILLION per episode!
I do think that Andy Cohen should leave Bravo and form his own network.
I'm going to miss Sheree, her delusions of grandeur, and her ability to switch effortlessly from classy lady to ghetto whore.
Seriously laughing at that comment, r79.
"ability to swtich effortlessly from classy lady to ghetto whore."
Why does Andy taunt these women? Poor Sheree. "She by Sheree" is never gonna happen just like her house will never be built.
Has anyone ever seen any She by Sheree clothing in any store....ever? Or does the label simply exist on this show?
Nope, never saw any of that shit, praise THE LORD.
r82, gurl, She By Sheree only existed for that one fashion show Dwight concocted two seasons ago.
Sheree must have been in some serious debt before she got on Bravo to be anywhere near broke now. At 700k per season, only Kim and Nene make more than her. Sheree took a lot of Bob's money in the divorce, which is why I dont understand why she is struggling. It must have all gone to divorce attorneys.
Phaedra was on our local news today. I guess Bobby Brown was charged with another DUI in California some time around the death of Whitney. The report today was that his attorneys showed up in court to enter a plea of not guilty. Bobby didn't show up (and wasn't required to) so I guess the news station decided to use some archived footage of him in court another time. And Miss Phaedra was right there alongside him.
[quote]Sheree must have been in some serious debt before she got on Bravo to be anywhere near broke now.
She just spends money like a drunk on payday.
If she gets a check from Bravo, she cashes it and buys things she can only afford that week, not that year.
R81 I agree with you. I think Andy is a bit of a misogynist. He is also a jerk and I can't stand to watch his After the Show anymore. He was cheering with glee because he was going to have a female porn star on, and I was thinking, what the hell is he so happy about? Is he happy that there is another negative female image that he can exploit? I also think Andy still has issues being gay.
>>They should fire Kim. She's dull since she met Kroy. Completely humorless.
She's smart. She realizes that RH isn't going to last forever. She hooked a rich guy and she wants to stay with him and his money. She knows he won't put up with her acting trashy (and embarrassing and humiliating him) like all the other women. Vulgar Ne Ne must be so jealous
R85, she was his criminal attorney when he was married to Whitney. He had been arrested for something near Atlanta and she represented him. It was way before she was on RH
r84 She uses the money on purses, shoes, and soon-to-be-repoed cars. It's sick to watch the show and see her children sleeping on air mattresses in a small apartment with hardly any furniture while she's driving a Porsche
Phaedra is homophobic. She posted on her bravo blog that homosexual urges are unnatural.
I loved that "who farted?" look on Phaedra's face when Nene was giving Sheree the hand.
Nene is an uber-cunt.
She is so trashy and unlikable.
Why would Glee hire her?
Nene shut all those bitches down last night. I see why she makes more than all the housewives. She is a cunt, but you have to hand to her, the sister can read.
I wish she was staying. I liked the drama she brought, especially with Marlo when they started doing their strange little funny faces at each other.
So, au revoir, Sheree. Find some inner peace somewhere, you're still gorgeous. If you can love yourself, the next man with money will come along and wanna fuck you.
Don't listen to that Herbalist. He didn't know what he was talking about!
"You must stay in your house. You must not go outside."
750K per year? Where are these numbers coming from? I just really doubt Bravo is paying any of these housewives that much money.
Here r96. Nene earns the most at 1 million per season. Im pretty sure thats not outrageous considering what Kim Kardashian probably makes, and the RHOA are their main Sunday night competition on cable.
Yes, R94, Nene can read a bitch DOWN. Dead at calling Latoya Jackson Casper the Ghost. I died. I live for her reading sessions.
Say it ain't so r91. I dont understand how ANY of these women can be even a little homophobic and live in ATL.
Can someone please explain to me why the hell those queens wear women's footwear? I just don't get it!
I don't want no dildo up my ass, okay?
First Sheree was going to have a fashion line - but that went down the tubes. Then she was going to be an actress - and that went down the tubes. Now that house will never happen. I'm glad she's gone.
I love Nene. I miss Dwight. And Marlo is really entertaining.
But I can't stand Kandi anymore with all her sex toys. And Kim is totally boring with that big dumb jock she married.
Kroy is not THAT rich. And NFL careers are not that long. Kim better have a plan B. BTW, that diamond bracelet he gave her for her birthday was borrowed from the store and went back. They all front.
Sheree is notorious in Atlanta for bouncing checks and returning shit. She was banned at one time from Neiman-Marcus. She's as fake as they come, but it's actually kind of pathetic to listen to her try to defend her supposedly lavish lifestyle.
“I don’t care if I stripped when I was 20, 30, or 40. I don’t want a dildo up my ass today.”
Uh, Kroy was a loser from the minute he knocked up that skag.
Say what you want about her, but Nene is worth every penny. She proved that last night on the reunion show.
Kim is a blanking home wrecking WHORE. I don't like her and wonder why is Bravo featuring the whores poor white trash wedding...
Please answer me one question - what does Kim do that makes her money?
I cannot imagine that trashy Kim is anywhere near as popular as Bethenny was to warrant her own spinoff. WTF?
[quote] Nene can read a bitch DOWN.
I don't agree. She is loud, but there is no wit or intelligence to what she says.
I find her really boring.
I never wish anything bad on anyone because I'm a Christian, but I hope she dies in a drive-by-shooting no later than next weekend. O Jesus Lord, this I pray!
r111=weird Christian freak
Well, you sound like the typical Christian so we aren't surprised by your lunacy. If you take reality TV so seriously that you would pray for someone's death, you need to stop watching and find a psychiatrist. You're unbalanced. But then again, all Christians are.
Is Cohen in on the script outlines for the seasons? Does he approve storylines, etc?
What you smoking, r114? It's a reality show. There ain't no scripts or storylines?
R115: I have a friend who lives in Atlanta. He told me he was in Piedmont Park two years ago and watched them film a bit with NeNe.
He said she had to retake a scene four times because she kept forgetting what she was "supposed" to say.
There may not be an actual script (it's doubtful that NeNe could read it if there were), but there are certainly directions about what each scene is supposed to involve from Bravo's people.
I think the Countess said one time that scenarios are set up (parties, events, meetings) and the cast isn't given a script but producers remind them of what was said and they take it from there.
The Countess lied.
Sheree owes Bob money and got him into debt because she refused to leave their home after a judge ordered her to. Bob was the one taking her to court, he wanted his payments reduced because she technically owes him.
Sheree is also in legal debt to divorce attorneys, which is why her car got repossessed.
Phaedra said her legal troubles are at standstill, and for good reason. She is owes everyone money. But Phaedra is much too classy to put all her business out there!
The "She by Sheree" fashion show. Remember that one? With the crappy little stage until the skinny gay guy came in, clutched the pearls, and said "Oh honey, no." The the models came down the runway in dishrags and everyone gave the whole thing the side eye.
She couldn't keep up and now she's gone. Boo hoo.
Nene Says She is Sick of "the Gay People"
I really dislike the format Bravo uses for its video sharing so I usually avoid embedding them and really don't even like watching them. However, this morning two readers shared that on this video, which is one of those jerky hand-held behind the scenes videos that Andy did during the taping of the RHOA reunion, has an interesting comment. First, let's recall that every opportunity that Nene has been presented has come from a gay man. First and foremost, Bravo Andy, the gay man that is holding the camera for this video. Then there is Chris Colfer who suggested to Ryan Murphy that Nene would be a good choice to play Roz Washington on Glee. Gay men have been very, very good to Nene Leakes. So please tell me that she is not stupid enough to be saying what she it sounds like she is saying at the 46 second mark of this video. I'm going to need some of you Nene fans to explain this one.
At the final reunion last night, Andy made a comment about Kim's boobs ,and he seemed extremely turned on to the point that he was not faking it. My mother watched the show ,and she said the way he said it ,and the way he looked, she got the strong without a doubt vibe that he was truly turned on. My mother said women usually have a strong intuition when guys are really turned on ,and when they faking it. What is with Andy?I'm confused because is he now becoming bisexual? Or does he still have issues being gay?Its getting weird!
wow r122...just wow.
Did SbyS know she was canned when they filmed the reunion?
I noticed that too r122, but more so because that entire moment seemed very awkward...Kim's face, Andy's face and the sort of non-response around the room just seemed strange. I get Andy's humor, but I'm guessing it was just the ending of a really long production and nobody really found his comments funny.
In a way, I feel kind bad for Sheree because every outside venture that she's tried has been a total bust. She by Sheree? Acting? At least the other girls were able to use their notoriety to start businesses or make money off of the show.
Poor Miss Whitfield is left with a hole in the ground that she claims will someday rise as Chateau Sheree. Yeah, right.
R124: She seems thoroughly defeated at the reunion which makes me suspect that she did know. She can't even fake it.
I think everyone was thoroughly defeated after those readings that Nene gave. She was in rare form.
There is not an actual script because there are not actual writers. There are failed writers who could not break into scripted comedy / drama, or whose writing careers have taken detours or permanently declined and so they have transitioned into writing for reality, which pays much much less and is a shitty job.
You have to remember, these shows have schedules. Every minute of camera time costs money. They don't follow people around waiting to see what happens -- but I think no one here is under that illusion. But they don't even have the luxury of letting the cast members riff at length. They have X number of hours to unload equipment, light, shoot, and move to the next location.
So make no mistake -- an entire season of a docu-style reality show is scripted, scene for scene, episode for episode, story arc for story arc. The cast members have outlines that explain what they are doing in a scene. You can find different ones online via Google. There is a bit of an art to it for the cast members, they do improvise a bit, usually the talk at the top. And they have to use their own words to get the point of the scene across. But the point of the scene has been determined, and is in writing, and that's that. You can always tell when they transition from the BS top of the scene to the scripted meat. It's that point where they go "So..." "So, I heard you want to have a party..." Etc.
I thought that it was strange that Andy did a review of the previous seasons on Sheree like it was the show's way of saying, see ya!
Also, they were reviewing the previous seasons with Kim and Nene. I was wondering if maybe those two might be on their way out?
I was just in a wine bar with RHONY's Ramona. And she wasn't drinking Pino Grigio!
r131, I suspect they hope Wiggy's spinoff will be a success.
You and your mom sound awfully close, r122.
Why can no one on the websites referenced in this thread construct English sentences?
R133: I can't imagine anyone wanting to watch Kim's show.
She is deadeningly dull even with a group of people.
Her whole "I'm a stupid whore" routine wears thin.
R136, bingo! you nailed it!
R134, I converse with both of my parents about anything and everything. no hold's barreled. growing up, I never had a formal relationship with my parents because it has always been a very casual and open communication flow. No subject was a big deal to talk about.

at least he didn't say conversate....
Nobody cares about Kim. This is the end of her. Thank god.
Funky Dineva is on Sheree's property, the Chateau Sheree is actually getting built!
[R40] her new show is a hit, you don't know what you're talking about
Sorry meant to quote [R140] above
Sheree's not dead through, right?
It's just a drag queen that impersonates her that died mysteriously this week?
Why there ain't no white hos on this show besides Kim?
Poverty by Sheree
r147, NeNe was on Wendy Williams this week and they showed a promotional picture for the new season that didn't include Kim among the women.
NeNe said that Kim would still be around and we'd see her sometimes, but that she's not considered a regular anymore. She also said how nice it is to finally see a full cast of brown women - something the Real Housewives franchises have been missing.
Bring on the ghetto!
I read that Kim is starring in her own spin-off of the RH.
Season 5 starts next Sunday bitches!
Phaedra will have beat some the housewives off Apollo this season. I cant say I blame them for trying to get a piece of him though, I would eat his WHOLE ass!
Looks like the two new housewives brought the show back to life, it was way boring last season.
Wendy Williams asked her Atlanta audience to do a drive by at Chateau Sheree and take a picture of whatever progress has been made on the construction so they can talk about it on her show.
She also reported that Sheree's ex Bob has finally paid up his back child support and is current with his obligation now.
[quote]Don't listen to that Herbalist. He didn't know what he was talking about! "You must stay in your house. You must not go outside."
This was my FAVORITE part of the whole season. The "herbalist." "You must stay in your house. You are too old. You will not get married again."
They DID show what was supposed to be Sheree's new house framed with the outside walls up. How's she gonna pay for it now? I'd hate to be her contractor.
I read that Kroy just signed a $15 million deal with the Falcons. I really like him. I think I understand the Kim attraction. There's something about Kroy that wants to break out and be seen. He wants to be a star in showbiz, not just on the football field. I loved watching the reruns of Kim meeting his folks for the first time, with all those strange blow-ups of Kim and Kroy all over. (In all those photos Kim looks like a catatonic vampire.)
Kenya and Porscha are just what the show needs. I 'm glad Kim is just a recurring housewife this season. She is a disgusting piece of shit and it's very annoying her life has turned out so well, well except for the fact she seems to be over her head paying for her house lmao.

Didnt want to turn down a check!
I wonder where Sheree will be to watch the season premiere tonight.
Miss Phaedra Parks was on WWHL last night and got a question about Sheree's house. Phaedra said she's heard it fully built.
She also said that Sheree is starring in Scary Movie 5, but then quickly corrected herself to say Sheree has a little role in it.
No jokes required.
Kenya Moore is a former Miss USA, not Miss America.
Last night's episode was boooooring.
Kenya's antics were forced.
I miss Sheree.
I loved last night's episode. I like Kenya.
Kenya's behavior did seem forced for this to be her first episode. The producers could have at least waited a week or two before they made her the bitch of the season. I guess they know people remember what a snoozer Season 4 was.
Im glad Apollo is trying to develop a personality this season. He seemed so intense, like he would go off in second. Smile every now and again! Phaedra is so quirky and decadent, I dont know how they get along. I guess the dick is enough for her. It would probably be enough for me too.
Marlo should have been added as a permanent cast member. Could you imagine the drama between Marlo and Kandi, and y'all know Marlo would have fought with Kenya and Porscha too. I like that Kenya is bringing out more attitude from Cynthia. It's nice seeing Cynthia give us something other than boring.
I'm pissed Kim starts the season off as a housewife...then obviously in a few episodes she'll lose her home and be too pregnant to film so Porscha will be brought in.
I CANNOT BELIVE Kandi still gives Kim the time of day! How many times does Kim have to act like a fucking bitch for Kandi to realize this trick isn't worth her time? Kim is a nobody while Kandi is DOING IT. I don't understand...
Im not a fan of Kim's, Ive never seen one episode of her solo show, but I think people read to much into her comments about Kandi's house and just her behavior in general. Kim doesnt take herself seriously at all, and Kandi and Nene have learned to not take her seriously either.
I like Cynthia a lot and I LIVE for Peter. He will read all these bitches and their husbands too! Apollo did not want that Jamaican beat down. It will be interesting to see if tired ass Kenya gets under Cynthia's skin.
Even though I think she's a trashy lowlife, I want to see more of Nene making her way through Hollywood. I'd love to see industry people, the onew with zero stake in the Housewives franchise, react to her.
Dream on r170. There's no way in the world Papa Smurf Peter was going to beat ex-con Apollo. That's just ridiculous. Peter is an unhappy arrogant punk-ass bitch. Cynthia should dump his sorry ass. I can't stand him.
A Wendy Williams' viewer sent a picture of Sheree's house to the show the other week. The frame of the house has been built and the walls are being put up.
I never wanted to watch any of these Housewives shows. Sadly, I got sucked in two years ago. I stopped watching every one except for NJ and this season will be my last for that after the phony Melissa is a stripper storyline only to reveal her husband was actually a stripper. Don't fool me for an entire season with phony morality. Anyway, I will never watch ATL anymore because of last season's introduction of Marlo. I've never seen someone so repulsive on reality TV before. She is Nene times 10.
R170 I can't stand Kim because she is garbage who constantly twists around every situation to make herself look like the hero or victim. She feels she can go around saying and doing anything without consequences? Kim is a racist IMO. Yes she doesn't hate blacks, but she certainly acts as if they're beneath her. That Sweetie situation makes me sick and the comments about Kandi's house which is better than Kim's could ever be are pathetic.
The only reason I don't mind having Kim on the show is for the when the other housewives read her filthy cunt. I can't believe the fags and faghags gave her solo show good enough ratings to get her a second season.
