Happy New Year to All!

I can't believe it is December 31st! Here I sit all alone at the office reflecting back on the trials and tribulations of 2008. All in all, this year has sucked so I must say to 2008...."don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out! Adios Mo Fo!"

I will be bringing in 2009 with Rock Star Ex Wife at a great restaurant close to home. We were invited to a party with a bunch of old rock and rollers from bands you actually know but it is too far away. These people are masters of partying but we are going to pass this time. I know that Atlanta's finest will be out in full force.

I just found out last week that my dog Coco, has subcutaneous hemangiosarcoma, cancer of the blood vessels. She is almost 14 years old, my constant companion and comes to work everyday. The picture above was taken this week showing Coco hard at work. I am taking her to a specialist on Friday for some ultrasounds to see if the cancer has advanced from under her skin to her organs. How am I going to handle this? Plenty of good red wine, friends, blogging, reading my favorite blogs and ranking on the Housewives of Atlanta!

I wish all of you the most wonderful 2009 and :

May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and
May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words ............
May 2009 be the best year of your life!!!

Is Real Housewives of Atlanta Sheree Whitfield's Atlanta Home on the Market?

I absolutely love the blog This blog reports that Sheree Whitfield's (actually her to soon to be ex husband's) house may be on the market. It seems that the economy bug has bitten She by Sheree's snooty behind! Please visit this blog for more scoop.

"SELLER: Bob and Sheree WhitfieldLOCATION: 5525 Long Island Drive, Atlanta, GAPRICE: $2,850,000 (off market)SIZE: 8,903 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half bathroomsDESCRIPTION: Benecki built resale home on large private gated lot. Quality throughout, nanny suite with separate entrance located over garages.

"YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen children, we know what you are thinking and we do not want to hear it. Your Mama is well aware we are scraping the bottom of the celebrity real estate barrel here. But, see, we just can't help ourselves. Unfortunately for y'all, we woke up with a burning need to discuss the real estate doings of a smarmy Georgia peach named Sheree Whitfield who recently listed her suburban Atlanta mansion with an asking price of $2,850,000.If the children will put on their reality tee-vee thinking caps they will recall that Miz Sheree Whitfield–whose claim to fame is that she is the ex-wife of pro-footballer Bob Whitfield–recently appeared on the hair raising boob-toob pièce de résistance The Real Housewives of Atlanta.During each episode of this masterpiece of reality television, we were treated to Miz Sheree prancing her over-sized ego all around Atlanta in her her giant Range Rover acting as if she was the classiest and most dignified high society bee-hawtcha that ever walked the damn Phipps Plaza mall. Pleeze. And do not even get Your Mama started about Miz Sheree and her nascent "She by Sheree" clothing line because we would hate to burst Miz Sheree's self-indulgent bubble by saying that being a hardcore hobby shopper does not a fashion designer make.Well children, the laws of gravity say that goes up must come down and according to the gossip grapevine, poor Miz Sheree is going down. Not only is she in effect being booted from her Atlanta mansion, some Atlanta-based scuttlebutters are snickering that she's bouncing checks all over Atlanta. Oh dear. Now puppies, we don't know if that shit is true or if it's just a bunch of wagging tongues, but it is what folks are whispering about Miz I'm So Much Better Than You.Property records for the Whitfield's 1.81 acre estate on Long Island Drive NW show it was purchased in August of 2000 for $2,395,000 and the snarky children will note with some righteous eyebrow raising that the property was owned solely by Mister Whitfield and that Miz Sheree's name never appeared on the paperwork for the property. That's right puppies. Neh. Vah. Which means, of course, Sassy Sheree never actually owned the house and was merely squatting there until her dee-vorce was settled. Well, ain't that interesting?Anyhoo, listing information for the house Sheree calls home shows it measures in at a good sized 8,903 square feet and includes 6 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, a count which we assume includes the nanny quarters above the garage.In addition to the ballroom sized living room with its elaborately stenciled ceilings, dark stained wood floors and King Arthur-esque furnishings, the sprawling English cottage style mansion includes a modest sized dining room with a faux paint treatment, all manner of crystal lighting fixtures and, gack!, red velvet curtains that look to Your Mama like something she purchased at a yard sale of an upscale bordello in Reno, Nevada.Besides the copious knickknacks cluttering up the counter tops, the bronze colored ceiling, all that stoopid crap shoved up in the ceiling corners and the bird's nest up in the chandelier, the fully equipped kitchen really isn't so bad. The stainless steel appliances includes twin dishwashers, a mac-daddy Viking range and a double wide SubZero refridgerator/freezer, all good things.The commodious but low ceilinged family room features more faux paint treatments, a giant beige sectional sofa, an intricately carved and ass uglee coffee table and and even uglier pool table with crazy carved up legs. Somewhere in the house is a home gym with all manner of exercise contraptions of the sort Your Mama scrupulously avoids, a fully mirrored wall where Miz Sheree can admire her toned and tight middle-aged boo-tox, and another faux paint treatment on the walls. Listen Miz Sheree, let Your Mama give you a word of deco-raytin' advice. Just because you like the faux paint treatment your nice gay decorator did in the dining room does not mean you should have him do up the entire house that way. Your Mama's boozy pal Fiona Trambeau calls that sort of thing, "Flooding the car." Think about it.The gated grounds include a crushed stone driveway which terminates in a small motor court where the front door stands opposite the four-car garage. Out back is a large and attractive rectangular shaped swimming pool surrounded by a stone terrace that includes an outdoor fireplace and peek-aboo views of a small pond.Listing information now shows the Whitfield house is currently "off market." We don't know if that means Sheree is stayin' put or if, more likely, it means she's a little peeved about the publicity she's getting for having to so publicly downsize her lifestyle. Them's the breaks when you put yerself on tee-vee Miz Sheree.Naturally, Your Mama does not have a clue where Miz Sheree will reside when and if this house gets sold but we're pretty sure that her be-weaved blond gurl friend Kim Zolciak would let her and the kids shack up in her 3,396 square foot condo on Bent Tree View in Duluth, GA that records show she purchased in January of 2006 for $486,000.Listen puppies, we know we sound like a catty bitch talking nasty about Miz Sheree. And we are. However, there is nuthin' more loathsome to Your Mama than a person who will (fake) smile at your face and then turn around and wag his or her vicious tongue to anyone with ears. And that's exactly what Miz Sheree did week after week on the first season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And we can hardly wait until season two begins to see more bee-hawtcha back-biting and learn more about Miz Sheree's lowered circumstances. "

Happy Holidays from Atlanta Cougar and Kids

Atlanta's Sunday Paper Names Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2008 Person of the Year!

Atlanta's Sunday Paper has named the infamous Kimberly Zolciak one of its Person of the Year 2008 for a year when there was no comic relief at all!!

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” delivered the channel Bravo one of its biggest hits in recent memory, averaging 1.3 million viewers per episode to rack up the network’s best freshman series numbers since “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” in 2003. And it gave Atlanta a watercooler bonanza, with plenty of petty squabbles (NeNe Leakes’ rivalry with imperious diva Sheree Whitfield) and conspicuous consumption. But the most vital component of the show’s success was Kim Zolciak, the single mother of two whose relationship with a mysterious sugar daddy known only as “Big Poppa” sparked equal amounts of gossipy speculation and exasperation.Leakes may have emerged as the show’s breakout star (and tabloid fixture, given her recent housing troubles), but it was Kim who kept us talking—and rolling our eyes. Who could forget her tacky wardrobe change in a gas station parking lot in the first episode? Her straight-faced assertion that she was 29 years old? Her sharing a bed with her two daughters way beyond the appropriate cut-off age? And let’s not forget her, shall we say, ambitious country-music aspirations. How bad was her singing? After appearing on the show to offer advice, super-producer Dallas Austin publicly distanced himself from Zolciak, setting the record straight that he is not working with her on an album. Kim’s mix of covetousness, connivance and cluelessness even drove the normally collected Lisa Wu Hartwell to rip into her castmate during the show’s reunion special. Earlier this month, Bravo picked up the Atlanta “Housewives” for a second season. If they’re smart, the network brass will make securing Zolciak’s return their top priority.—K.F.M."

Real Housewives of Atlanta Deshawn Snow Holds Real Fundraiser

Miracles do happen around the holidays- Real Housewives of Atlanta DeShawn Snow hosted a "real" fundraiser for her non-profit organization last week. Rick Eldredge of AJC's PeachBuzz reports:

"Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality show cast member DeShawn Snow mingled with real-life Dunwoody housewives at the Perimeter Barnes & Noble over the weekend as she hosted a holiday party and book drive with the upcoming Walt Disney Christmas flick “Bedtime Stories.”
We’re told that Snow strolled into the store toting the newest Louis Vuitton black bag and was stylishly dressed in a black and white print silk shirt and black wool pants. She and fellow fund-raisers from her charity, the DeShawn Snow Foundation Angels, read “A Visit From St. Nicholas” (aka ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”) to a crowd of “Real Housewives” fans and seasonal shoppers. Snow also had some surprise celebs in tow, including New Orleans Saints player Willie Whitehead and her very own hubby, Eric Snow, of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The pro ballplayers also read to the crowd, and Snow playfully referred to himself as “Mr. DeShawn Snow.”
More than 700 books were collected last week during the “Bedtime Stories” tie-in promotion and fund-raiser.
Also, we hear that a certain suddenly camera-shy CNN anchor was in the crowd, clamoring for an autograph. Oddly, it wasn’t self-professed “Real Housewives” groupie Anderson Cooper but rather Heidi Collins, whose son is a major Cavaliers fan.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Add New Cast Member for Season 2

According to, Bravo has cast a new member for the Season 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Mediatakeout reports that the new housewife is Dorys Erving, the latest wife of Dr. Julius Erving. Who will she be replacing? Kim? No, she loves the publicity. Sheree? No way. Deshawn? Nope. Nene? I hope not but she has been getting alot of bad press recently.

Ex Big Popa Lee Najjar Hosts a "Real " Atlanta Housewives/Socialite Fundraiser at His Home

The Real Atlanta Socialites and Housewives, unlike the Bravo imposters, know how to host legitimate fundraising events. Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx, who is a brilliant, beautiful, class act hosted a private screening of the the documentary "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" at the home of Lee Najjar. Rick Eldridge of the AJC wrote the following in his Peachbuzz column about the event:
"Not only did Spanx founder Sara Blakely’s bold-faced friends brave some not-so-nice weather Wednesday night to attend her advance private screening of “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” they arrived with their check books in hand.
Blakely hosted a viewing party at the Buckhead estate of Atlanta real estate tycoon Lee Najjar and his wife, Kimberly. More than 100 guests crowded into the couple’s in-home theater to see the possible Oscar contender. The film, opening today at Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema, documents the efforts of thousands of Liberian women —- ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim —- who came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside the presidential palace as they took on the warlords and nonviolently forced a resolution during stalled peace talks.
Blakely recently saw the film in New York and was so moved she’s turned into an advocate for the documentary. Also inspired to donate large checks to help the Liberian women rebuild their country and their new outdoor market was Blakely’s new hubby, Marquis Jets co-founder Jesse Itzler; the documentary’s director Gini Reticker and the film’s producer Abigail Disney; Liberian peace demonstrator Asatu Bah Kenneth; G-CAPP founder and Poncey-Highland resident Jane Fonda (with adorable doggy Tulea) and daughter filmmaker and environmentalist Vanessa Vadim; Atlanta radio personalties Ryan Cameron, Frank Ski, Vikki Locke and Jeff Dauler; Pink magazine editor in chief Cynthia Good and her hubby, Bright House founder Joey Reiman; philanthropists Aida and Allan Flamm; Captain Planet Foundation chair Laura Turner Seydel; fund-raiser Michaeline Roland; Atlanta doctor and jewelry designer Lisa Stein and her husband, Bruce; fashionista Teresa Hebert; and attorney Gary Martin Hays.
The evening raised $10,000. Since the Sara Blakely Foundation matched every donation, Liberian women can anticipate a total of $20,000 from generous Atlantans to go toward a new clinic or nursery school.
Incidentally, the well-mannered crowd did not bring up those recent unsavory reports in the New York Post that pointed to Lee Najjar as “Big Poppa,” the mystery sugar daddy of the musically disinclined “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member/national punch line Kim Zolciak. (All parties concerned have denied the unsubstantiated innuendo.)"

Real Housewives of Atlanta Renewed for Season Two!

It's official! E Online reports that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is renewed for a second season! Check it out!

"Christmas may come early for Anderson Cooper.
It's just been officially announced that the silver fox's favorite television show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is coming back for a second season.
Bravo has not revealed if all five of the original ladies will be back for the sophomore effort. Let's just hope our and Cooper's fave, NeNe Leakes, stays on board. Leakes and her husband, Gregg, have been bombarded recently with bad press alleging they're not as well off as they appear to be on television.
Of course, the Georgia peach had something to say on the subject...
NeNe spoke out about the first report earlier this month claiming they were evicted from their home because of unpaid rent. She said they were not kicked out and insisted it was their decision to move.
No start date for filming of season two or its premiere night have been decided, according to a Bravo rep.
The Southeastern installment of the Housewives franchise has been the most successful of the Bravo bunch, capturing more ratings than the original Orange County and its New York follow-up.
"The level of engagement on Atlanta far surpasses a typical series on cable or broadcast, with our viewers deepening their connection to the show through live wireless chats, daily blogs and additional footage online," said Frances Berwick, Bravo's executive vice president and general manager. "This, along with the colorful personalities of our housewives, helped drive the series to a watercooler sensation."

Blog Comment from California Based Friend of Stefan Lemperle Who Would Like To "Set the Record Straight"

I have been contacted by a friend of Stefan Lemperle who requested that I publish the following comments she wrote about him. Here goes:

" Dear AC,

Thank you for understanding and removing my name and initials from (one) of the blogs. ........... Also, I wrote a blog yesterday regarding Stefan and shedding a positive light on him and his character, He and I would both be very appreciative if you could post that. Thank you again for your understanding and support in this matter. Very best regards, ****"

Post from 12/15

"I've kindly asked that the above Post be deleted in it's entirety, and should it not I would like to say that the character assassinations are very hurtful and completely false about Stefan. I've known Stefan for many years and can honestly say that he is a very kind loving gentle man, with the utmost integrity, and as a very close and dear friend it absolutely shocks me that someone would say these things.Please do not write things that are not true, and if you must, how about not remaining ANONYMOUS. The true reality is, NOT Atlanta's House Wives and who is dating who, but that un-truths are being written and people are getting hurt. Let's please stop the nonsense and play fair. Thank You. "

I have honored these requests.

One Happy Atlanta Cougar with One New HP TouchSmart PC!

What does Atlanta Cougar do on a dateless Saturday night? Go shopping, ofcourse! My Sony Vaio laptop, which is only 2 years old, has shall we say, "bit the dust". So, for the past few days, I have been deciding what to get to replace it. I decided I had to have the new HP TouchSmart PC as pictured above. It is, indeed, a beauty. 22" touchscreen and all. Don't ask me about the technical details, as I really do not focus on these things. But, for those of you who are interested in the specs, here goes:
"HP TouchSmart IQ504 PC- The next generation touch computer that combines a 22" diagonal hi-def widescreen with a powerful energy efficient Intel® Core 2 Duo processor in a single, integrated design. Includes HP TouchSmart software, webcam, media card reader, and premium speakers for fast, easy access to photos, videos, music and applications."
The computer is built into the back of the screen. The mouse and keyboard are wireless. You can also use the touchscreen a la iphone! As Christmas gifts, I also bought my employees HP Mini Notebook PCs with 10" screen weighing only 2 pounds. I like to buy them something gadgety and on the cutting edge.

So here we are... my new 'puter, a glass of malbec and me. I am one happy camper!

Real Housewives of Atlanta Insider Information Regarding Kim Zolciak and Stefan Lemperle

I am so happy to receive comments from readers of this blog! I have been blogging sporadically for about a year or so but when I started watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I thought I would use my local flavor and contacts to provide some juicy scoop to other bloggers and blog readers. Before the staggering televison viewer statistics were released by Bravo, I knew that the Housewives was a phenomenon to be reckoned with. For your information, this blog has been accessed more than 30,000 times since the first episode of the Atlanta Housewives. Un friggin believable! In these tough economic times, many people are looking for an escape from the doldrums of their own, included! And I have met so many nice people through this medium such as Scandy, David from Pretty on the Outside, The Kitchen , some anonymous readers and countless others. I have only received one psychotic, vile comment. It was threatening and scarey. Someone from the Kim Zolciak camp and maybe even Kim herself. She/he was upset about my reporting of Brielle's YouTube account. I do moderate my comments and will post any comments as long as they are not fatal attraction/stalkerish. If anyone wants a transcript of these comments, just drop me an email. I will not give the author of this post the sick pleasure of seeing her comments online.

Here is one of my most recent comments from anonymous from is an insider gem.

"LL" is partially correct but as the Cougar Gossip Queen of La Jolla, I do know that *****, is a very well respect "non-cougar" woman and she wouldn't be caught dead with the "Womanizing, Stripper Loving, Porno Addict" like Stefan Lemperle! Although I do have to admit I even had my cougar claws in him at one time and.... Not much to write home about, but what's a good Cougar girl like me to do. At best "Ms. Goody Goody ****" as she's known around town, would be very polite and deliver him on a silver platter to Kim Z! To me I think White Trash Kim and Stefan make a perfect Big Mama and PaPa couple, hopefully they wont make any little wana be country singers! "

Anonymous, thanks for the scoopage! Please do share more of the insider info with us!

It appears that Real Housewives Kim Zolciak's friend Stefan Lemperle has a great PR representative!

As a blogger who is interested in the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I peruse the blogosphere on a regular basis to see if I can gather any juicy morsels of information. Last week, in several posts regarding Stefan Lemperle, an anonymous male reader with the initials 'LL" commented with the following response:
"Dr. Stefan Lemperle has an incredible girlfriend in La Jolla, which Kim
couldn't hold a candle to. Rumor has it they have had an on and off relationship
due to Stefans "womanizing" but it is obvious he is very much in love with her.
Her initials are ** and she is a beautiful little redhead that every man in La
Jolla is after! Including me!! Hopefully he wont be able to control his manly
urges!! LL from La Jolla " *

Yesterday I received the same exact response from LL in my posts regarding Stefan Lemperle My guess? Stefan has a pretty damn good PR person doing damage control!

* Updated 12/15 Initials removed at the request of friend of Stefan Lemperle.

Don't Cry for Me Argentina Wrap Up

Photobucket Album

I had the most fabulous time in Buenos Aires! We left Atlanta on Wednesday night and arrived in BA on Thanksgiving morning. The time is 3 hours ahead in BA and it is summer there...about 85 degrees and humid. We checked into our hotel "Hollywood Suites and Lofts" . We had a great loft with a living room, flat screen, wifi and full kitchen downstairs and bath and beds upstairs. Breakfast was delivered to our room daily. If you travel to BA, I highly recommend this hotel in the trendy Palermo Hollywood neighborhood which is filled with good bars and restaurants. We hit the ground running and went shopping. BA has great deals on cashmere sweaters and I did my part to help the economy. BA is also known for great deals in leather goods. I bought 3 beautiful leather jackets and some beautiful shoes.

Shopping worked up our appetites and we had our first delish meal which included great wine, filet mignon, salads and side veggies. In BA you cannot order wine by the glass....only by the bottle and the malbecs are fabulous. After a late lunch we stopped at a wine store and brought several bottles for wine tasting. We sat by the rooftop pool in our hotel and watched the sunset.

Everyone in BA eats a late dinner....after 11pm and we hit another restaurant for a light dinner and more wine. We ate some of the best pizza I have ever eaten.

The next few days involved more eating and shopping and drinking and man watching and going to some street fairs. The men in BA are super hot...the epitome of tall, dark hair and handsome. The value of the dollar to the peso is still strong so even the best dinner including a good bottle of wine is only $30 per person.

I can't wait to get back to BA. It is definitely the Paris of South America. The buildings, statues and monuments are just magnificent. I can only imagine what it was like in the days of Evita!

Real Housewives of Atlanta NeNe and Greg Leakes Evicted from Duluth Home

The following article was written by Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal Constitution and ran in today's paper. It seems that the Leakes' have been affected by the miserable economy. I hope that Nene gets her own show! Read on...............

"NeNe Leakes, the breakout star of the hit Bravo reality show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is no longer living at the pricey Duluth five-bedroom residence shown on the series.
According to Darryl Pierce, the broker for the 5,000-square-foot home at 1765 Silvermere Court in Duluth, NeNe and her husband, Gregory Leakes, left in November after Winwood Properties filed an eviction notice in September.

Neakes and her husband, Gregory Leakes, left the five-bedroom property in November after Winwood Properties filed an eviction notice. The notice, filed Sept. 24 with the Magistrate Court of Gwinnett County, said Greg Leakes owed $6,240 in past due rent. “The tenant said they would move by Sept. 14th because they could no longer afford the house,” the notice said.
The owner of the home, Kajani Shenaz Ali, lives overseas, Pierce said. Online records show the home in the gated community of Stonebrier at Sugarloaf, was purchased for $829,400 in September 2006. Pierce said the Leakeses moved into the home shortly after it was built in 2006.
NeNe Leakes, in a series of e-mails Tuesday, would not say where she is living now. “It’s none of your business,” she wrote. But she noted that they “are financial able [sic] and stable to live where ever we feel fits.”
NeNe, 41, wrote that the eviction notice does not have her name on it, adding “you don’t know my relationship with Greg so be careful what you report!”
The Duluth home, she wrote in an e-mail late last week, “was a lease purchase corporate deal with Greg & his company. Things didn’t work out between the two of them so they did what they had to do and he did what he had to do.”
On Tuesday, she wrote, “If we rent, lease purchase or buy, money is still coming out of my pocket. So who’s [sic] business is that??”
Gregory, 54, couldn’t be reached for comment. The TV show called him a real estate investor. The only business the AJC could find under his name in Georgia is called Advantage Move LLC. The phone number listed for Advantage Move has been disconnected.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” in its first season, became a watercooler show packed with jealousy, petty arguments and conspicuous spending. It averaged 1.3 million viewers over seven episodes, the biggest freshman series for the Bravo cable network since “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” in 2003.
Bravo spokeswoman Rachelle Savoia said, “We don’t comment on the personal lives of our talent.”
NeNe has been featured in Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide, lauded by fans for her honesty and her sense of humor.
