Hello World—Anthony here to wrap up all the things in pop culture that had us all talking this week.
This week marked the return of the peach state’s version of the Real Housewives franchise, or as I like to call them’ The Really Broke Housewives of Atlanta’.
Not much has changed since we last saw the ladies of Hotlanta. Nene is still ‘very rich’, having her boss Ryan Murphy make an appearance on the show. Phaedra is still doing the most– expanding her funeral business into the realm of pet funerals.
Kim is pregnant and getting evicted from her home. It’s funny how even though she is about to be homeless, she still found time to throw shade at Kandi’s new humble abode.
Speaking of miss ‘No Scrubs’, Kandi used the premiere to introduce the world to her new beau, RHOA producer Todd Tucker.
In other news, not much has changed for former supermodel Cynthia Bailey. She is still running the Bailey Modeling Agency (no comment), and raising her daughter with husband of a year and a half Peter Thomas.
The new season of RHOA marks the addition of two new cast members—one of which viewers were introduced to during the premier.
Former Miss USA, Kenya Moore, joined the ladies and during the season premiere let it be known that she is not one to be messed with. Moore got into a heated argument with one of Bailey’s assistants during a casting call for JET Magazine.
The other new housewife, Porsha Stewart, wife of NFL player Kordell Stewart, will also join the mix. Viewers will get a glimpse into the new socialite’s life when RHOA returns for a second episode on Sunday.
From hot messes to former hot messes, it was announced that pop princess and new addition to the’ X Factor’ judging table, Britney Spears, would be releasing a novel.
According to reports, the novel will most likely be a fictionalized version of her that will draw upon her real life experiences!
There’s some part of me that wants her to name the book ‘Bare feet and Cheetos’. Just wishful thinking.
In other pop star news, Lady Gaga caused a bit of controversy (shocker) when she took aim at critics for her recent weight gain.
“I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it?”
The shade. Shake my head. Obviously Adele has other things to attend to, like taking care of her newborn baby to worry about Gaga throwing a little shade her way.
As always tune into Pop Addict next week to catch up on the latest and breaking celebrity news.
Hotlanta (n 🙂 a nickname for the lively city of Atlanta, Ga.
Throw shade (v 🙂 to act in a jealous nature.
