Rasheeda and Kirk Frost’s reality TV publicity stunts are a ratings bonanza for VH1. On “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta,” Kirk is seen cheating on his pregnant wife with random women. Despite the fact that their scenes are clearly fake, Kirk and Rasheeda’s scripted marital woes have evoked emotional responses from even hardened thugs who can’t understand why a couple would go to such lengths for a paycheck.
“It’s the fact that they’re willing to run around with other people and do these shenanigans and disrespect their marriage on TV,” said one angry industry insider.
Talk show Diva Wendy Williams is more realistic, accusing Kirk and Rasheeda of lying about marital problems to make headlines on VH1′s “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta.”
It’s a shame what people will do to stay on this reality tv,” Williams said.

NBC quietly canceled its groundbreaking gay sitcom “The New Normal” after just one season on Friday. The news was met with very little fanfare from the liberal media, which stood in stark contrast to the circus atmosphere hype surrounding the show’s premiere on September 11, 2012.
The cancellation was among a long list of shows such as “Go On” and “Guys With Kids” which were also canceled Friday.
“The New Normal” was produced by Glee’s Ryan Murphy, who sought to redefine the way families are portrayed on TV. Murphy arrogantly described TNN as “changing the face of television.”
But not everyone jumped on the bandwagon. NBC affiliate KSL-TV in Utah made the decision not to run the program at all. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” said Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL-TV’s parent company.
A week after NBA free agent Jason Collins announced his homosexuality in a much-ballyhooed Sports Illustrated cover story, another famed homosexual renounced his lifestyle. But the real story is how the 2 diverging announcements are being handled by the mainstream media.
While the national news media gave Collins a hero’s welcome, Antoine Dodson’s renouncement of his homosexuality has barely registered a blip on the mainstream news radar.
Dodson gained Internet fame after his colorful description of a home invader to a news reporter went viral on YouTube.com.

NeNe Leakes met her husband Greg at her place of work, a seedy strip club. Exotic dancers are more proficient at controlling their emotions to avoid the temptations of falling for every man who tosses a dollar their way. That explains why, when real love does come along, their unions tend to withstand the test of time.
Married for 14 years, the Leakes are ready to renew their vows again, In Touch Weekly reports exclusively.
“This time around, we’ll work together as a team more,” NeNe told In Touch.
“Braxton Family Values” stars Tamar Braxton, her sister Towanda, and husband Vince Herbert were Carol Blackmon’s guests on Atlanta radio station Majic 107.5 this morning. Herbert made it a point to say 4-months pregnant Tamar would reveal the sex of her fetus when she was ready. But it looks like Tamar’s bestie and “Tiny Tonight” co-host Tameka “Tiny” Harris may have already beaten her to the punch.
