Congratulations to Diane Bassette, the winner of That Housewife Guy’s “Capture Life’s Memories” 3rd Birthday giveaway! You can still win luxury skincare products from TBB here!

Brace yourselves, Atlanta Housewives fans! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes has landed her own spinoff! The series will focus on her second wedding to former ex-husband and current fiancé, Gregg Leakes.

“YES the rumors r true! I will marry my love AGAIN!,” NeNe tweeted. “I Dream Of Nene-The Wedding special coming soon.”

The show will follow NeNe as she plans the “Royal Wedding of the South” with the help of celebrity wedding planner Tiffany Cook. NeNe’s bridal shower will also be featured in the series entitled I Dream of Nene: The Wedding. 

NeNe’s RHOA co-star, Cynthia Bailey is set to be a part of NeNe’s spin-off as one her bridesmaids. Last year’s pot-stirrer, Marlo Hampton and Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams will also be in the wedding party.

NeNe is the fourth Atlanta housewife to earn a spin-off series. Kim Zolciak’s spinoff, Don’t Be Tardy and Kandi Burruss’ music competition series, The Kandi Factory are currently airing on Bravo.  Phaedra Parks is currently in-development with her own spinoff on the network, Rich People’s Problems which is rumored  to debut this fall.

Our friends at AOL’s Buzz60 report on Nene’s new show here:

Days of Our Lives star Lisa Rinna may be finalizing a deal to replace Adrienne Maloof on the fourth season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

We first heard that Rinna may be joining the cast earlier this month; but now, rumor has it that the the 49-year-old is about to close a deal with the network.

Lisa “really, really wants to join the show,” a source told RadarOnline. “Producers had initially asked Lisa to become a part of the show when it first launched but she turned it down because she decided to do her own reality show for TV Land”

Lisa was honored to have effectively been given a second chance and negotiations are going so well that both sides believe the deal could be closed very soon,” the source added.

Bravo has yet to confirm the season four cast; however, reports indicate that despite the recent rumors, Taylor Armstrong and Yolanda Foster will be returning.

“Yolanda and Taylor began filming for the fourth season of RHOBH last week. It was a bit of a shock to see Taylor in front of the camera again because the crew thought she was a goner for sure. The viewers just don’t like her. But, it has been so hard to find replacements for Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer, that producers had no choice but to bring her back. Yolanda is quickly becoming a fan favorite because she is becoming the mama bear of the group, and calls the ladies out on their catty ways when necessary,” a source told RadarOnline.

Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville, are “all expected to begin filming this week.” the source revealed.  So, what about Kim Richards? I guess we will just have to wait and see…

Ramona Singer, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill have all signed on for season six of The Real Housewives of New York. However, Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lessepess and Aviva Drescher have yet to sign contracts. However, we spoke to Sonja last week who said she was in for season 6.

Rumors are circulating that Aviva may be getting the pink slip from producers according to the New York Post‘s Page Six.

Although Aviva’s fate on the series is still undetermined, she reportedly moved to a new home in Manhattan due to the fact that the security in her previous Upper East Side apartment would not allow cameras to tape inside the building.

“She’s literally packing up boxes to move into this house she’s rented, which she doesn’t even like, so she can be on the show more – and they’re not bringing her back,” a source told the paper.

When we asked Aviva ourselves, she politely declined to comment.

However, one thing Aviva did mention was that she plans on reaching out to the victims of the tragic Boston Marathon Bombings– especially those whom were injured and needed amputations.

Aviva, who suffered an accident at age six and had to have her leg amputated, vouched her support via Facebook.

“I hope in the aftermath of this tragedy, the new amputees can find hope that their life can continue to be a functional and happy one,” she wrote on Tuesday.

Are those wedding bells we hear coming from Orange County, California? The wedding preparations are in full swing for The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney.

According to Tamra’s tweets, she and her fiancée, Eddie Judge will wed this June.

Tamra will have three dresses for her big day, “I’m going to have a ceremony dress, a dinner/cocktail dress, and a reception dress that’s going to be a party dress,” she tells toofab.

But will her wedding be featured on television spinoff like Ms. NeNe? “Maybe…,” she told us in a recent interview. “We hope we will be able to share [the wedding] that with everyone.”

Speaking of RHOC weddings, rumors about an engagement between Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are swarming the internet. We contacted Gretchen who is currently not commenting on the story. Gretchen has always voiced that she certainly values long term commitment yet does not see marriage as a priority in her relationships. After all, she has already been married, divorced, and engaged again. Keep with TBB as we continue to divulge the truth behind the talk.

When Sheree Whitfield was a cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers watched as her divorce from former Atlanta Falcons football player Bob Whitfield progressed from bad to worse.

As we reported, Sheree and Bob will be featured in an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life on OWN. Bob tells his side of the story and describes how Sheree’s storyline on The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrayed him like a bad parent.

“Your whole plot was to point a finger at me, to catapult yourself into some glory,” Bob says to Sheree in the clip. “To take advantage of the stereotypes of the male athlete having kids everywhere, to the bad husband that abandons his family and doesn’t take care of them, to the distraught woman that can’t meet her bills. Basically, you took a reality television show to become your reality.”

Iyanla: Fix My Life with Sheree and Bob Whitfield will air tonight, Saturday, April 20th at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

They’re baaaaaaaaccck!  The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back for the fifth season on June 2nd.  So, what can we expect this season? TBBReality promises that this season certainly will not disappoint.

RHONJ star Melissa Gorga told Examiner.com that this season will be “everything the fans want. It’s a lot of crazy yelling, a lot of love…there’s a lot of comedy.”

When asked if she and her husband, Joe Gorga are close with Teresa Giudice, Melissa says, “We are trying to work things out for the kids.”

Watch a trailer for the upcoming season below!

  3. Although I wasn’t the bride who hired Tiffany Cook (formerly Tiffany Nieves) of Dream Design Weddings & Events, I was her bridesmaid and I watched as her wedding planning went from optimistic and exciting to extremely disappointing, unprofessional and stressful. Although, Tiffany Cook was able to brag about some of her previous high profile clients, she wasn’t however able to deliver good service, reliable communication or any vendor information to the Bride at any point in the planning process. This forced the Bride to fire Tiffany Cook one month before her ceremony… something no Bride-to-Be wants to ever even imagine. Additionally, the Bride was forced to locate all of her own vendors, schedule and attend all of her planning appointments (i.e., floral, tastings) without the expertise and assistance of a knowledgeable wedding planner.
    When Tiffany Cook was informed of her impact on the Bride she was indifferent and flat out rude. And again, in good faith, the Bride reached out to Tiffany Cook again in one last attempt to motivate Tiffany Cook to uphold her agreement, however, Tiffany Cook responded with a short and rude email correspondence. As you can imagine, any bride, one month before her wedding would at least expect active conversation/involvement from her wedding planner, and to have most of the final planning completed. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case.
    With less than a month before her wedding, the Bride was forced to hire another planner, and take legal action because Tiffany Nieves Cook did not refund the money after she failed to meet the terms of the contract.
    In short, Tiffany Cook of Dream Design Weddings is a fraud and is the absolute worst wedding planner ever.
    To Brides seeking a wedding planner, please note that Tiffany Cook was recently married. This is important because review searches under her maiden name reveal a wedding planner with a consistent track record of sub-par effort, rudeness and poor service.

  4. I agree with the other post. Tiffany cook(Nieves) planned our wedding in 2006 and made the whole experience a nightmare. She didn’t do anything and actually ruined the day of the wedding. She had a lot of sentimental belongings of mine(including a special basket from when I was baptized) that she never returned. I spent months trying to get in contact with her but she completely avoided me and my family. Stay away from this woman. When I read the headlines about her I thought “wow. Karma is finally coming back to this dishonest woman”!!

  5. Seems like the two comments above are both from the Nene camp. I have been a bridesmaid in one and attended 3 of Tiffany’s weddings over several years and they were exceptional. All of the brides were over the moon about Tiffany’s services. Karma will come back to both of you for posting dishonest statements. Clearly Tiffany hasn’t achieved this type of success because she does what you both claim.

  7. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

    A small number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
