SARAH JESSICA PARKER has dismissed talk she has fallen out with her SEX & THE CITY castmates, insisting she’d love to work with them again.
It’s almost that time of the year again. Unmarried women twirl through the streets of Atlanta claiming to be “housewives” tugging wigs and wreaking havoc while holding a peach. And I live for every bit of it. The season 9 trailer of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is finally here!
The upcoming season will feature the cast of season 8, sans reality misfit, but TV sitcom legend, Kim Fields. Original “housewife” Sheree Whitfield is also back holding a peach after appearing as a “friend” last season.
If the 2-minute trailer is any indication, season 9 is going to be drama-filled and entertaining as ever. Even if Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak aren’t returning.
The clip shows Kenya Moore and Sheree still feuding over their houses. “My name is on my home. Your mother’s name is on ‘Chateau Thelma,’” Kenya says regarding the house Sheree has been building for over five years.
Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey ponders divorce from her husband, Kenya has a frightening experience with her boyfriend, Phaedra Parks’ law firm is threatened, and Kandi Burruss clashes with Porsha Williams.
Porsha even alleges the Grammy-winning singer invited her and a friend back to Kandi’s “sex dungeon,” amid speculation Kandi may be a lesbian. Say what?!
Season 9 of RHOA premiers November 6th on Bravo.
This is sentence you probably never, ever thought you would read: Draya Michele is featured in Vogue.
Yes, you read that correctly and, no, I’m not making this up. The former Basketball Wives: LA star landed a photo spread in Vogue. It’s Vogue Brasil, so it won’t be on U.S. newsstands, but it’s still freaking Vogue! Talk about a come up that most reality stars only dream about as they sit in front of a green screen shooting their confessionals.
Draya first posted photos from the shoot on her Instagram page. “I’ll take this W for my team. Thank you. @voguebrasil,” she wrote.
She also posted a behind-the-scenes video.
The Mint Swim designer’s upcoming feature will focus on her relationship with NFL player Orlando Scandrick and the birth of their son, Jru, who was born in April. Draya will also discuss her new clothing line Beige and Coco. She even teased a return to reality TV.
“I may be returning to television much sooner than everyone thinks but this time, like never before.”
Its unknown if she’s returning to the VH1 series, another reality show, or something entirely different. But honestly, it doesn’t even matter because ya girl is in VOGUE!! I’m gonna celebrate this win with her. Who knows when another opportunity like this will come along?
Jaws dropped when Janet Jackson announced to the world she was “planning a family” at 49. The star is currently pregnant at 50, but an Illinois woman has her beat by a longshot. Claudette Cook is a first-time mom at 60! To Twins!
Claudette welcomed fraternal twins Isaac and Isaiah via C-Section on Sunday (Sept. 25) shortly after her 60th birthday. The twin boys are her first children. WTF?!?
“I cried. I was like, you know, you look at TV and you see other people in the delivery room and you’re like, oh my goodness. And, it was me. So, joy, it was so sweet. Everything changed in that moment. Once they’re born, your life changes.”
She and her husband, Ross, both from Pike County, Indiana, met 10 years ago in church and doctors told Claudette she would never have children due to her age. However, with prayer and the help of an in vitro specialist they visited last year, “Bam and here they are,” Claudette said.
“Age is but a number with God. Plus, I was healthy and in shape. I was like, yes, I know I can do this — I know I can. No matter how hard it was, He brought me through it all, so, awesome God.”
I’m not one to put an age limit on when people should stop having kids, but dang! 60 is up there. I hope the couple can keep up with those boys when they hit their toddler years. But who knows, the twins might be taking care of both Claudette and Ross by then!
For nearly 20 years, we’ve not only marveled the talent of Venus and Serena Williams, but also their close relationship. Well, the two might not be on the same page when it comes to police brutality because Venus just uttered those dreaded dismissive words: All Lives Matter.
Earlier this week, Serena received much praise after revealing her concerns about police brutality in a heartfelt Facebook post. While being driven by her black 18-year-old nephew, the tennis star couldn’t help but reflect on all the things that could and have gone wrong as a police car followed behind them. She now promises she “won’t be silent” regarding the matter and the post went viral.
So what was Venus response to his sister’s declaration?
“I haven’t seen the post. I think all lives matter, so… I can’t really comment.”

I don’t know why we continuously have to explain why this (sometimes) well-meaning statement is so problematic when it comes to the Black Lives Matter Movement. I guess some celebrities would rather face a Twitter dragging than actually try to understand the issue. Venus was not immune to Twitter’s wrath.
Venus had think pieces about equal pay, interviews, made headlines, etc. She didn't mind. Yet, she goes with "I believe all lives matter"

Venus said all lives matter? Welp. She canceled too then….

I knew y'all was gonna have the lame excuses ready. Venus don't be online but she knew to say "All lives matter" outta nowhere. Hmmm…

We should have known Venus was 'all lives matter' when she was on their reality show saying Lynn performed in the ghetto and it's dangerous.

Venus Williams know the deal ride with white man. He's cutting the check all lives matter #Blacklivesmatter

Venus Williams said All Lives Matter & someone said that's why you look like Julio Jones lmao ??? #Crying

Venus Williams can get the hell on with her losing ass. This is why we always loved Serena. She's the chosen one anyway

Serena has always looked up to Venus and calls her older sister one of her greatest inspirations. However, now might be the time for the roles to switch. Some of Serena’s “woke-ness” needs to rub off on the 36-year-old tennis champ.
