Recap Of Fun Summer Fashion From The Wendy Williams Show

Hello everyone! Today is June 1st, which means I forgot to send the usual monthly post for y’all. Well, people, it’s because the g-maven penciled time off dates from her two other blogs (subtle plug) https://clara54.wordpress.com/ and http://wisewoman2.wordpress.com. She forgot to post at the tea blog. This clearly means she’s off her game, but have no fear, she got ya!

Instead of the usual brand of teas today, however, we’re gonna talk about fashion. Yep, fashion is always fun and because the g-maven is “resting”, we’re just going to talk summer fun fashion and what’s trending for everybody. So, are we good?! Y’all know celebs like Kate Hudson and Beyonce’ have come out with their brand of athletic wear, and there’s the Jenner girls for the younger generation. But, did y’all know that some real housewives brought their line of clothing to HSN and made money hand over fists? Lisa Rinna even quipped how she makes more money in a few hour on HSN than she does doing an episode of the reality show (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)

NeNe Leakes would know a thing or two about that conversation, considering she sold out her whole line of clothing at a HSN appearance, also. These celebs know how to get their coins. Speaking of which, Wendy Williams is a walking billboard, advertising her clothing line on the show. I mean, she literally wore pieces from her line everyday and had the animated Suzanne ( the one who gets Wendy’s audience riled up and clapping) to wear them too. I suppose that’s a great way to push your product, but, the opinion of this g-maven? It came off as Wendy being thirty and tacky:) Just saying. Y’all know Wendy is my gurl, but Jeez.

Here’s Video of Some Fun Summer Fashions obtained from an episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

I’m going for the off the shoulder tops, two piece or dress trend that can be athletic inspired. White and floral pieces are always a good summer choice. Body conscious pieces are not on my preferred fashion to-do list, but they’re striking pieces as well. Remember, white out fashion is the summer fun stand out.

Thank you ladies & gents, for the support of your follow! I hope to see y’all in July with brand new teas that will be well worth your wait. 🙂

Why Kim Fields Is A RHOA Class Act

Good Morning G-Moguls! This post was scheduled a week ago and put on hold after hearing about the sudden passing of Angela “Big Ang” Raiola of Mob Wives on Thursday Feb 18th. In my humble g-maven opinion, Big Ang made that show! She was a peacemaker. Angela Raiola’s last appearance was on Dr. Oz where she spoke to her fans about her 4 decade old cigarette habit, her cancer diagnosis and doctors 30% prediction at life prognosis. My condolences to her family.

I Hope all of y’all had a lovely and loving Valentine’s Day and for the kiddies, it was a great time being out of school on President’s Day.Yay! Anyhew, it’s all love. So, here I go regressing to my same ole Real Housewives of Atlanta watching. I mean these women are behaving in the most ratchet way ~ seems like they’re running neck & neck with the cutthroat ratchets of Reality TV’s cast of Love & Hip Hop.

Okay let’s just rewind to the reality of all of these shows. According to a Hollywood insider that I interviewed a while back, these shows have to bring the drama. No question that these reality stars are being coached on the sidelines by producers, with the understanding that if they want to stay relevant, keep holding that peach (RHOA), and pick up that hefty pay check, they had better keep bringing out the ugly, for viewers to keep watching.

And nobody brings the “ugly” more than Ms. Kenya Moore! Just sayin. For all of us thinking Kenya might chill now that she has a young 28 or 29-year-old stud as her Valentine, heck she should be calm, cool and satisfied, right? NOT! Kenya Moore is whining and acting so possessive, jealous and immature, in relation to her BFF status with ( a work in progress now that NENE is back) Cynthia Bailey. And she’s taken on an ugly stance against the newest member of the housewives, Ms. Kim Fields aka Tootie on the long running Facts of Life television show and as one of the roommates, Regime, on Living Single. The woman has a glowing body of work that makes Kenya Moore twirl with jealousy and envy.

Although Kenya can’t seem to contain her dislike of Kim Fields, the other women at least pretend to like her. It’s only when Kim isn’t around that the others might cackle and grin behind her back. Phony & inauthentic behavior, ladies! I was really in agreement with Sheree Whitfield when she spilled the beans to a clueless Kim Fields. Lots of folks are having their say about Kim being on the show.  Even celebs weigh in and feel like she can’t handle the women. Actor Jerry O’Connell, in response to a question asked by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, thinks Kim didn’t know how ‘vicious’ the women on the show could be. I personally feel Kim  have got to throw a little shade when dealing with those wenches- come on, people, a little shade never hurt nobody!

I applaud Kim Fields for bringing a bit of “real” to RHOA and for letting the women see how a for real lady carries herself in the face of backstabbing, haters, instigators and green-eyed monsters~ Kenya “twirl” Moore.

Okay, that’s a wrap, people. I have more irons in the fire, so enjoy your weekend and tune in next month for more from Clara’s celebrity teas, given the only way yours truly dish it, with truth & flavor:)

Melissa Rivers Throws Shade At Former Fashion Co-Hosts

Happy Wednesday G-moguls! Where does the time go? I could start by rehashing on those brazen, potty-mouth, sexually promiscuous, ratchet folk over at Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but I can’t cause I might throw up in my mouth. I could spill about what celebrities are in the process of getting divorced after Ben and Jen, but that celeb news is never new news and I bore easily. I am gonna diss, err, dish a bit about the VMAs though; Hated it!

Miley Cyrus was over the top obnoxious,at times disrespectful and got what she deserved when Nicki Minaj checked her “boo.”

I have these intuitive eyes/words for Caitlyn Jenner over at E! I Am Cait:

Watch out for the thicker than thieves (sharks) in your new trans family of friends, Caitlyn… Just like in the heterosexual world, not everyone have your best interest at heart; just theirs.This time it was the car. Next time, it might be a mansion…just sayin’:)

Here’s the spill of interest that gets this maven’s green light post: Dang video won’t load so hit the link, people.

Melissa Rivers is back at the helm of Fashion Police made popular by her late mom, comedian Joan Rivers. Apparently Melissa is feeling some type of way about former co-hosts, Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne-talking about she had to clean house and holding up pieces of red and purple hair lol

Y'all might recall Melissa threw shade at Giuliana Rancic when she made the inappropriate comments about Zendaya's hair and got a well deserved backlash for? Melissa Rivers posted a photo of her mom Joan with the teen after that incident. It's sad when grown folk show their true colors (no pun intended) and then half ass apologize for it. "Bye Felicia!"

Monday Fashion Police returned with new guest co hosts, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho. Ms. Cho gave it back to Giuliana when talking about Miley Cyrus fake locs smelling like patchouli oil and weed. Giuliana could only hide her face but she knows she offended folks, leading many to call her "racist."

NeNe Leakes was still the drama queen and over the top with her diva like fashion critiques. Margaret Cho got a thumbs up overall from critics and viewers.But, NeNe Leakes is trying hard to become the next Joan Rivers of Fashion Police. News flash,NeNe, there's only one Joan like there's only one NeNe. Do you boo. Do you.

Okay, that's a wrap, people. Back to regular folk drama.

NeNe Leakes Quits: Reality Housewives Shake Down!

th NENE HEAD

So, NeNe Leakes bids the housewives of Atlanta adieu! Anyhow, happy Tuesday, my tea co-horts. This is the end of June and sadly for some of you drama loving tea moguls, so is the news that NeNe Leakes is leaving the Reality conglomeration that made her a rising celebrity. Ms. Leakes was the last original housewife remaining, having been with the show for 8 years. Y’all know I have a theory:) Just maybe, none of the other wives, except maybe Phaedrea were thrilled to film with the rich “b*tch”, so just maybe she felt pressured to leave the show. And y’all know she was wrong for talking down to the well established therapist, Dr. Jeff. I’m just sayin’

rhoa-1024

Anyhew, NeNe haven’t left the Bravo family entirely. Remember she and former reality person, Kim Zolciak have that road trip in the works. Reportedly, the newest housewife, Claudia Jordan won’t be back on the show either. We need to give that girl props though, cause she does get around. Apparently a staple on Rickey Smiley Morning Show in Atlanta, Claudia was also on Tiny’s late night show, along with Tamar Braxton where there were whispers about the pair not clicking. Tiny’s late night girl fest, fizzled out rather quickly.Could it be because we the viewers couldn’t understand a thing coming outta their mouths?!

Y’all know by now, doncha, that Brandi Glanville got the boot from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Yep, the mouth got the boot, right alongside her new best buddy, the tortured soul and sister of Kyle Richard, Kim Richards. Did you see that Dr. Phil debacle? Sad, very sad. Now here’s my theory on why Brandi got the boot. When she drank, the truth came out. Not only did she spill the beans about Kyle’s fancy for inhaling weed, she also showed much disrespect to Andy Cohen on the last reunion show.

And now for the main course:) Donald Trump was axed from Celebrity Apprentice because of his apparent racist remarks about Mexicans! NBC will be searching for the next honcho to reside over The Celebrity Apprentice. Wendy Williams cast the net for Howard Stern and Sean Diddy Combs. Who y’all want to see as the next host?
How bout this? Can y’all see Donald Trump as your next president? I’d say, another Lyndon B. Johnson we don’t need. What?! Don’t act like y’all brand new now, hear?

Evelyn Lozada, formerly of Basketball Wives, gets her own reailty show on Oprah’s OWN network, called “Livin Lozado.” Hmmm, maybe Iyanla Vanzant did help her get her life.

thlyyanla

Another Basketball alumni, 45 year old Tami Romin is reported to be pregnant. Babies are always a blessing in my neck of the woods, so congratulations to her.

Hey y’all wasn’t Janet Jackson & Smokey Robinson the coooolest at the BET Awards?! Got my vote. (thumbs up)

Is Kenya Moore Becoming Famous By Being Infamous?

thkenya

Most of us know of Kenya Moore from watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta. If the truth be told, people, I don’t recall her most boasted achievement to date yet, that of becoming Miss USA in the 90s. But, we give celebs their props where props are due, whether you’re a reality TV star or a trained, method or character actress.

For your achievement, Ms. Kenya, gurl, we applaud you! You have also starred in a few early television sitcoms and even, if I read correctly, produced a movie, albeit slightly a salacious one? Can’t take that from Kenya either, considering 50 Shades Of Grey and all of that:)

And let’s keep it real, we also know (as viewers) that Ms. Kenya came on the housewives to keep sh*t stirred, prompting NeNe Leakes to file a cease and desist letter against her, as in (keep my name outta your mouth and stop lyin’ on me!) but, whether Kenya is a fire-starter or sh*t starter, take your pick, she is getting paid. Her net worth at last reading was well over $300,000.00.

Kenya Moore could be worth so much more, now that she’s taken her brand of ratchet to The Celebrity Apprentice where she is actin’ “sooo mean and sooo nasty” and so ugly, devious , conning , conniving and well, just ratchet! And the g-mogul have to call it like she sees it, y’all- Kenya Moore appears to lie like a rug!

So, how many of y’all think Kenya Moore stole Vivica Fox’s phone and is she more ratchet than Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? Now, we know that Glanville can be quite ratchet too. Just sayin’

How many folks feel that she might be finding herself becoming famous by being infamous? Do you think Vivica Fox was dead on in her assessment of Kenya? Do you think that Kenya’s brown-nosing Donald Trump and his family was a bit much? What?!:)

Let’s take another look into the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom, shall we?

NeNe Leakes: “I’m A Hustler And A Grinder”

Good Morning peeps! I have a lot on my plate this morning and I just took my meds, so let’s get it popping (in my best Wendy Williams voice) What? yes, Wendy is still my girl,but by the time she brings the ‘hot topics’ to y’all on her show today, the g-maven will have already given my readers the teas:) Just sayin’

nene-leakes-andy-cohen

So, NeNe Leakes sat in the guest seat over at Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! to dish on the RHOA premiere, herself as a “hustler and a grinder” and also the reunion, where Portia Stewart-Williams was inconspicuously absent. Everybody knows Portia was let go on the show and landed a job on the radio’s popular Dish Nation. She was in an episode or two on the premiere of the real housewives and will appear in a few earlier episodes set to air. There were ‘rumors’ that Cynthia would be let go also,but so far that tea remains to be seen.

Here are some highlights from last night’s Andy’s Q & A with NeNe Leakes:

Andy asks- what NeNe thought about Kenya and Cynthia talking about her on the Real Housewives episode last night.
NeNe- “This is the first time I saw that. Let her have her moment, I don’t have the time. I’m on Broad way.” When Adny askes if they’ll ever be friends again, NeNe replies, “No, No, and No, we shouldn’t be friends again. Bye girls, I’m on Broadway, holla!”

Andy- NeNe, people want to know if you think you’re superior to the other women on the show and are you leaving the show?
NeNe- “Maybe, I won’t stay, you’ll have to wait and see. I’m very over the negative drama…honestly, I do not want to get up and sit with a bunch of negative women who want to sit and do nothing.” And earlier NeNe had alluded to Cynthia in this manner, in regards to their friendship and Cynthia’s new allegiance to Kenya. “Cynthia doesn’t seem to have a backbone she’s never been my lap-dog.”

Andy- A viewer wants to know if you feel bad about calling Peter a “b#tch”?
NeNe- I’d apologized to Peter. We were cool before, but once Twitter started up, Cynthia felt like she had to do something. I don’t think that was the reason for the end of the friendship it was all a part of a master plan.”

640_nene_leakes_zumanity

NeNe headlined a Risque Vegas Show, called ‘Zumanity’ Cirque Du Soleil and by Andy asked in a game of the same name, who she would save and who she’s let fall: Here’s how NeNe responds:

Save: Phaedra- like
Mama Joyce- cool
Kris Jenner- like
Kandi- hedges on like

Wouldn’t save: Wendy Williams, Cynthia, Kenya and Peter.

NeNe Leakes will be taking over Sherri Shepherd’s role, playing the wicked stepmother to KeKe Palmer’s Cinderella on Broadway and so, yes, she’s a hustler and a grinder folks!

Real Housewives Kandi Burruss’s Mama Joyce: Cray-Cray or Very Intuitive?

th mama joyce

I was really doing swell. I had decided not to write about any of those dang housewives and I didn’t for a long time. Not even when Joe and Teresa got slammed with fraud charges or the teas went down, insinuating that Apollo and Kenya really did have a little something-something going on! And y’all know I wanted to get down with the get down when Phaedra’s husband was arrested and charged with identify theft/fraud for stealing retired folks’ checks from their personal information and making millions outta other people hard earned monies-the g-mogul held her expert and intuitive op-eds to herself. And what about NeNe Leakes cray-cray exposure of all of her womanly assets during her ‘pillow talk’ sleepover with the other wives and their significant others (men) in the room? Ladies- show a bit of self- respect! Okay, that was for NeNe Leakes:) just sayin’

But, The Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss’s mama Joyce has just canceled out all of my good intentions in regards to the other g stuff. Kandi and fiance, Todd Tucker were rumored to be headed down the aisle on Valentine’s Day, but, apparently the cold reception and ugly digs between the mama and fiance has gotten waay out of hand and poor emotionally distraught Kandi don’t know where to turn or whose camp to hide out in- her mama or or her man?

th Kandi

So, this is why it’s so ugly,people: Mama Joyce thinks Todd is an opportunist. That he only loves Todd and only Todd. That he cheated on Kandi with her best friend and that Todd Tucker really doesn’t love her daughter; he just wants her money. She cited how just two months after dating Kandi, Todd quit his job. Now, Todd is fed up with mama Joyce interfering with his and Kandi’s relationship. He wants Kandi to step into her big girl drawers and tell mama Joyce to back the heck up! Todd is getting so perturbed he even threatened to break off their relationship- Kandi cries so much now, it’s not even funny. I mean, the young lady has so much going for herself; the music, the show, her sex toy franchise and now, clothing shops in Hollywood opening up and welcoming her brand to the Ritz- come on people, the girl should be enjoying her huge success, doncha know?!

How many folks think mama Joyce is gone like- cray-cray? And how many think that mama Joyce motherly intuition is on point? I’m torn, people. See, a mother knows, but, a mother who loves her child and respects that they will make the right decision or heck, suffer the consequence and learn a valuable lesson? would probably tell Joyce to chill out and allow her daughter to be the woman she needs to be. Now, that advice doesn’t come easy. I’ve been there mama Joyce, but, you gotta cut the strings ( rich though they might be) and give Kandi breathing room. She’s in love, mama Joyce! Psst, the streets are talking ( Wendy voice) and we hear you’re having your cake and icing and everything in between with your man and your daughter admittedly doesn’t interfere. Leave your daughter be and let her enjoy her man, mama. just sayin’

Y’all have gone and done it now. I’m all stirred up and just had to speak on it:)
