My Top 5 Favorite Reality T.V. Stars of 2012!

2012 was a great year for reality t.v. and I wanted to highlight some of my favorite reality stars and a few of their most memorable moments.  So ladies and gents, I present to you my top 5 favorite reality t.v. stars of 2012!

5. Kimbella Vanderhee - Love & Hip Hop New York

How could you not love Love & Hip Hop New York's Kimbella Vanderhee? Kimbella took season two of the New York series from snorefest to tantalizing as she admitted to having relations with cast mate Emily Bustamante's baby daddy Fabolous and subsequently got stomped by resident bitter duck Chrissy Lampkin. Not only did Kimbella take those punches like a champ, she waltzed her ditzy azz into the bathroom, looked at herself in the mirror and proclaimed, "(I) still look pretty!" Kimbella went on to get dragged and pummeled by newcomer Erica Mena as well and yet, this chick never backed down from anyone! What I loved most about her was that she never spoke negatively about any of her cast mates until they started messing with her.  Instead of running around and popping off at the mouth, Kimbella was stuck in her own little bubble full of butterflies and lilies without a care in the world. Even when her hair caught on fire in a club, she played it off like the classy heaux that she is! I admire her for her carefree spirit but apparently the producers of the series did not because Kimbella was not asked to return for season three of the show *sad face*

4. Joseline Hernandez - Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

This list wouldn't be complete without the PuertoDominiTrini princess Ms. Joseline "Woman of God" Hernandez.  The muscular Hulk-esque Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast member had everyone intrigued the second she hit our television screens. What is it? Is it a man? Is it a woman? Come on, don't act like you didn't question her gender, too! As the season went on, Joseline really started to grow on me. I think I just enjoy watching people who don't hold their tongue and have absolutely no filter.  Joseline went in on every single cast member in one way or another and when she put dem paws on Stevie J during their counseling session with Mimi Faust, she definitely earned her spot on my top 5 list!

3. Adriana De Moura - Real Housewives of Miami

I didn't pay too much attention to season one of the Real Housewives of Miami but when season two premiered, I found reality t.v. gold in the Brazilian firecracker known as Adriana De Moura. It always amazes me when grown women go on national t.v. and act a fool but Adriana gets a pass from me because I want to be just like her when I grow up: quick to the point, no nonsense, quick thinking, with a powerful right hook and most of all, fierce! Adriana is the type of person who has dealt with a lot of b.s. in her life so she can see right through the transparent fakeness of Miami trash bags like Joanna Krupa, and she has zero tolerance to deal with the tomfoolery that most of the Housewives are dishing. Adriana is that friend that makes you tense up whenever she's about to speak because you never know what might come out of her mouth.  If Bravo Tv does not bring Adriana back for season three of the series, I probably won't even bother to watch. There is no show without Adriana!

Fashion Intermission: Get Emily Bustamante's Casual Daytime Look

Real Housewives of Atlanta Episode Recap: Tequila Shots and Geriatric Strippers

The group is back from Anguilla and they are all still trying to process what went down on the trip.  Nene Leakes (who thinks it's cool to wear her sunglasses indoors) meets up with Kenya "No Ring Yet?" Moore at a restaurant just to confirm that Kenya really is as delusional as she seems about her fauxlationship with Walter Jackson.  Kenya tells Nene that she felt threatened by Walter's aggressive demeanor in Anguilla and she plans on speaking to him about it.  As far as an engagement between the two of them, it still ain't happening!

Porsha Stewart invites Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss to her home for pie and wine (such an odd pairing that I will need to try one day).  Porsha is living up to her "dumb cheerleader" stereotype when the ladies ask her how many bedrooms she has in her home.  Dumb Porsha is like "Umm...either seven or eight".  Um, how do you not know how many bedrooms are in your own home? How odd. And then this chick is talking about she wants to get some yams from an African Village where 80% of the pregnancies were multiples. Kandi asks, "Are you sure it wasn't hereditary?" lol. Someone please bless Porsha with some brain cells! The conversation then moves towards the Kenya vs. Porsha beef.  Clearly crazy Kenya will be Porsha's story line but I am already over their drama. Can we please move on?

Cynthia and Peter Thomas are in the grocery store and Peter gets a google alert for a gossip story about Phaedra and Apollo getting a divorce.  Cynthia says all she knows is that Apollo loves him some strippas! Peter says he loves strip clubs too and he goes every six months. Cynthia offers to tag along with Peter to a gentleman's club to make it rain on them heauxs and he agrees to let her join in on the fun! Oh joy!

Is Laura Govan's Baby Daddy Cheating on Her with a Chinese News Reporter?

Basketball Wives L.A.'s Laura Govan has been engaged to her basketball player boo Gilbert Arenas since 2008 (read more here).  Gilbert has been playing basketball overseas for the Shanghai Sharks (read here) and sources are reporting that Gilbert has allegedly been getting it in with multiple women in Shanghai while Laura is here in the states raising their four children!

Instagram has been popping with pictures of Gilbert with a Chinese news reporter (I am withholding her name).  Now, I'm not saying that he is cheating on Laura with this particular woman, but pictures of Gil are all over her Instagram page and they have allegedly been spending a lot of time together.

Gilbert was injured for awhile and was unable to play so he had to sit on the sidelines and apparently, the news reporter got to sit right next to her alleged boo.

Real Housewives of Miami Reunion Recap: Part 1

Oh me, oh my! I finally got caught up with my reality t.v. shows and was able to tune in to a rerun of the Real Housewives of Miami reunion special part one. These ladies were bringing it with their sequined dresses and filthy mouths!

My favorite wife from this season is definitely Adrianna De Moura. Ohhh emm geee. I wish I could think as fast as her so I could slay and ether heauxs on a daily basis! Adrianna is the Queen of shade and backhanded comments.  She went toe to toe with Joanna Krupa and dragged her from Poland all the way back to Miami all in sixty minutes!

The reunion also focused on Karent Sierra's failed relationship with Mexican soap star Rudolfo. It seems like Karent was the only one who believed that Rudolfo was faithful to her.  Everybody knows *Phaedra voice* that if Rudolfo is sexting crater face Ana Quincoces, he is clearly cheating and will cheat on you with anyone! That man had absolutely no standards.

Take a Look at Kim Zolciak's Dream Home!

Fired Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak is currently in the process of building her real dream home with hubby, Atlanta Falcon's Kroy Biermann and their four kids (by three daddies). Kim has gleefully announced via Twitter that her new home will have not one, not two, but eight fireplaces. Ain't nobody got time for that!

The home looks nice but you know how Kim hates to pay her contractors (read here) so I hope these companies got their money upfront! 

By the way, I wonder how Chateau Sheree is coming along?

What do you think of Kim's new dream home?

Phaedra Parks is Pregnant with Baby #2!

I did not see this one coming at all!

Real Housewives of Atlanta's Phaedra Parks has just announced via People magazine that she and her husband Apollo Nida are expecting a baby next year!

Phaedra is in the Bahamas with her hubby and a few other reality stars (see picture here) and she showed off her growing baby bump in a cute one-piece bikini. I'm super happy for the couple! Aiden is adorable so you already know the Parks-Nida's new baby will be just as cute!

Congrats to the happy couple!

Vanderpump Rules Season 1 Trailer

Everyone's favorite Beverly Hills housewife will be starring in her very own spinoff on Bravo TV entitled, "Vanderpump Rules".  Lisa Vanderpump, the mature and classy comic relief on Real Housewives of BH has let cameras into Sur, her West Hollywood restaurant, as the employees pop off and cause major drama.

The cast members include Scheana Marie, the little floozy that slept with Brandi Glanville's ex-husband. Jax Taylor who is a commitment phobe.  Stassi Schroeder, Jax' girlfriend, is trying to keep her relationship in tact and it is effecting her work ethic.  Kristen Doute is Sur's "know-it-all" and the girlfriend to fellow employee Tom (dang, is everybody dating everybody up in there?!). Tom Sandoval is wondering if working alongside his girlfriend Kristen is a good idea or a horrible mistake and Katie Maloney is the "nice girl" who gets walked all over and is tired of it!

The series premiers on January 7th at 9 p.m. Will you be watching?

Mob Wives Season 3 Supertrailer

I really have a hard time watching VH1's Mob Wives because it always coincides with some of my other reality shows (I was hoping Santa would get me a DVR for Christmas but he's slacking on his gift-giving). I'm going to make season three of the series a priority because it actually looks promising. There's a lot of bark and hardly any biting which is probably due to VH1's attempt to remove violence from all of their shows but the story lines look juicy!

There's also a new member added to the cast by the name of Love Majewski. Since Drita D'Avanzo is leaving her fighting days behind her, it looks like Love has stepped up as the hot-headed bulldog on the series!

The new season premiers on January 6th at 8 p.m.!

Will you be watching Mob Wives Season 3?

Exclusive: Love & Hip Hop Cast Member's Past Fling with K.Michelle's Ex-Boo!

J.R. Smith, Tahiry and Joe Budden

I've always stated that the entertainment world is one big circle full of swapping mates, swapping spit, and a lifetime of antibiotics so I knew that when the new cast of Love & Hip Hop New York was announced that some of the cast mates would be connected to a few of our favorite reality t.v. stars.  I love to play connect the ratchet hood love dots!

Remember last week when Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's K.Michelle got dumped on Twitter by NBA player J.R. Smith (read here)? K.Michelle was embarrassing herself on Twitter by telling everyone that J.R. breaks up with her every two weeks and J.R. is still on Twitter claiming that he is single and looking for an all natural woman (K.Michelle and her fake buns need not apply). 

K.Michelle and J.R. Smith during happier times (two weeks ago)

Well, J.R. has quite the reputation of showing off on Twitter and putting his women on blast! Earlier this year, J.R. was "dating" Love & Hip Hop New York's new cast member, Tahiry. Tahiry is the ex-girlfriend of New Jersey rapper Joe Budden (who will also be on the new season of LHHNY). J.R., Tahiry, and Joe were involved in a awkward love triangle Twitter beef and being the immature punk that he is, J.R. found it appropriate to tweet a picture of Tahiry laying in a Motel 6 bed with her butt exposed.  He was clearly trying to get under Joe's skin but the tweet actually backfired. Not only did J.R. get fined $25,000 by the NBA for the tweeting the inappropriate picture, he also decided it was a good idea to dump Tahiry via Twitter and pass her used goods back to Joe (are you noticing a pattern?).

Oxygen Media's New 1-Hour Special: "All My Babies' Mamas"

No, this is not a joke and no, you are not dreaming.  Oxygen Media has just put the green-light on a new uplifting family orientated show surrounding Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and his 10 babies' mamas and 11 children.

The one-hour special (thank the lawd we don't have to sit through a whole season of this mess) will center around Carlos "Shawty Lo" Walker and his complicated life that includes all of his ex-women, his new girlfriend (who just so happens to be the same age as his eldest child) and his offspring.  For some reason, I thought that impregnating multiple women would be a drama-free situation? Guess not...

The show is set to premier in the Spring of 2013.  The only good thing that can come from this is that the women will be getting paid and will hopefully use that money to take care of their children.  And I am crossing my fingers and hoping that Shawty Lo gets a vasectomy on camera. Now THAT would be some good entertainment!

Will you be watching "All My Babies Mamas"?

Real Housewives of Atlanta Episode Recap: No Engagement for the Crazy Lady!

The cast is still recovering from the 'Gone with the Wind' fabulousness that Kenya Moore brought the night before.  Kandi Burruss missed out on the Kenya vs. Porsha Stewart fight because she was too busy busting it open in the hot tub with her boyfriend Todd, so Nene Leakes and her blonde helmet go to Kandi's room to give her the play-by-play.  The ladies end up having a mini heart-to-heart and squash their prior beef (whatever it was). They kiss and makeup and tell each other they are proud of one another. Yawn.

Todd stays behind to work (what's his job again?) as the group gets ready to go horseback riding.  Kenya pulls the ladies aside and apologizes for losing her cool the night before.  But every time Kenya starts speaking, Porsha butts in with that annoying screeching high pitched voice.

The ladies are not accepting Kenya's apology because she doesn't seem sincere. Before they could talk any further, Peter Thomas walks in and tells them to get their fake booties up and get on the bus so they can go ride some horses! 

The group has a beautiful lunch on the beach with the waves crashing at their feet.  Kenya busts out with an autographed book by Vanessa Williams called, "You Have No Idea" for Cynthia Bailey so she can brush up on her pageant knowledge.  Cynthia is offended but she keeps it classy by thanking messy Kenya for the book.  The book was so uncalled for and unnecessary but would you expect anything less from Kenya?

Everyone attempts to go horseback riding and Nene is of course being extra and over the top. She says she has ridden horses in her lifetime, but they didn't have four legs. Am I the only one who gags when Nene starts talking about sex? She just grosses me out for some reason.

Another Bravo TV Marriage Ruined - Bethenny Frankel Separates from Jason Hoppy

Rumors about Bethenny Frankel having marriage troubles with her husband Jason Hoppy have plagued the couple since they met.  Along with the rumors about Jason possibly being gay (watch video here), the couple seemed to be attempting to make their relationship work.  But now, after only two years of marriage, Bethenny has finally confirmed that she and Jason have separated. Bethenny went through all that trouble to get a man, all of that crying and snot running down her nose talking about she wants to be married and have a baby sooo badly and then she throws in the towel after only two years of marriage?

Bethenny told the Associated Press, "This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family...we have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."

Bethenny and Jason are the stars of Bravo TV's "Bethenny Getting Married" and "Bethenny Ever After" and they have a two-year-old daughter, Bryn. I hope this means that this damn show will be cancelled now! I'm tired of seeing neurotic skin and bones allegedly anorexic Bethenny on my t.v. screen.

Laura Govan Says Bambi Is Not On Her Level

Today must be "Hate on Bambi and Her Shimmer" day because the Govan sisters are ethering the Compton rapper no holds barred style!

Laura Govan gave an interview to Juicy Magazine in which she stated that the name of the show should be changed from "Basketball Wives" to something like "The Crew" since many of the ladies are groupies and jumpoffs and not actually wives. Pot meet kettle!

When it came to Bambi, Laura decided to unleash her venom!

"I don't have a status with Bambi. When Bambi becomes a cast member, I will have a status with her.  Until then, I don't waste my time. I don't even like to put me and her in the same sentence because we're on two different levels."

What "level" is Laura speaking of? The world would love to know.

I expect an epic Twitter meltdown coming from Bambi in 5,4,3,2,1.....

What do you think of Laura saying that Bambi is not on her level?

Gloria Govan Still Thinks Bambi Is A Rookie

I cried when Gloria Govan retweeted the above picture of Bambi next to Sheneneh. Why lawd?

This season of Basketball Wives L.A. has finally ended but the ladies are still talking about each other and bringing the messiness! VH1 has a new interview with Gloria where she discusses married life, her relationship with crazy Jackie Christie, and her thoughts on Draya Michele and Brooke Bailey. But Gloria really pulled down the shade when the interviewer asked her where things went wrong with herself and Malaysia's friend Bambi.

Walter Jackson Steps Out With Rumored New Girlfriend

He holding on tight to that thang aint he?!

Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore tried to dupe the producers of the Bravo TV series by hiring Walter Jackson to play her boyfriend on the show (read more here).  Walter has been seen around the streets of Atlanta with a younger and hotter version of Kenya a.k.a. singer and songwriter Christon Ingram.  Although Walter insists that he is single, he recently showed up to an Atlanta event with Christon on his arm. So that's what Walter looks like when he's really feeling someone? Interesting...

Kenya, in all her delusional Gone with the Wind glory, is still trying to convince us that her relationship with Walter was the real deal.  Whether or not the two of them were in a relationship, Walter has clearly moved on and is happy with Christon! 

Kenya weeps.

What do you think of Walter's new boo thang?

Keyshia Cole Mad About Being An Opening Act For R&B Newcomer The Weeknd

They should have never gave this chicken internet!

Keyshia Cole has been popping off on Twitter for the entire month of December.  This time, Keyshia is in a tizzy over a concert that she was supposed to perform at in the Bay Area.

Keyshia, an Oakland native, was scheduled to perform at radio station 106KMEL's Holiday House of Soul.  At the last minute, the promoters told Keyshia she would be an opening act for R&B newcomer The Weeknd.

K.Michelle Gets Dumped By Her NBA Player Boo Thang

Oh, how quickly this love affair has ended! On December 11th, I reported that Love & Hip Hop's K.Michelle was in some sort of hoodlove relationship with NBA player J.R. Smith (read more here).  K told a radio station that J.R. had dumped her and she was trying her hardest to get him back into her life.  After pictures of the twosome making out in a nightclub hit the internet, everyone assumed that K had accomplished her mission and was back together with her boo thang.

Unfortunately, their reconciliation was short lived! J.R. just put K on blast and told all of his followers that he is SINGEL lol. Yup, not "single" but "singel"...
