"Ken", a retired military man and single father, recalled his disastrous first date on Bravo TV's "Love Match Atlanta."

His date interrogated him about arriving in an Uber, and she demanded to know if he was willing to get a vasectomy.

Ken said it was the worst date of his life!

Love Match Atlanta's first season follows successful matchmakers who use their unique skills to help high-profile women find love.

According to Bravo's website, the matchmakers "balance the drama in their own lives as they find love for high-profile singles who are on the hunt for the ultimate relationship and willing to pay top dollar."

In episode 7, matchmaker Shae Primus' client, her sorority sister, proves to be a major challenge.

Twitter user @JohnReads writes:

"Ladies and gentlemen this is what chasing your career and getting too old for the dating market looks like. She's callused, manly [overly assertive]. She said to that brother 'You're on the clock.' She's looking for a subordinate, lol."

He added:

"She had no emotional intelligence in knowing that he was uncomfortable during that time. No self awareness: Me, me, me, me..."

Twitter user @bigmoneypiccaso writes:

"She's a solid 2, grilling dude like this!... Yeah she needs to buy a dog, she dying single."

"It's a joke. It's embarrassing," she sobbed.

"Khloe later told viewers in a confessional that she found out about Maralee Nichols "with the rest of the world".

She added, "I feel not really in my own body, like these things are just happening, and I'm just going through the motions," adding, "but when things happen to you a couple times you do kind of become immune to them, which is really sad."

In December 2021 Maralee Nichols gave birth to Tristan's son. He has not yet met his second son, according to a frustrated Maralee.

He also shares 3-year-old daughter True Thompson with Khloe.

According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, RHOA's season 14 premiere drew 933,000 viewers and ranked number 3 in the coveted 18-49 age demographic.

Kandi Burruss' spin off "Kandi & The Gang" saw its best stats of the season. Sunday's show drew 642,000 viewers and ticked up from 0.05 to 0.18 in the all-important 18-49 demo.

Although she makes an appearance in season 14, Kandi agreed to give up her peach for her own reality TV series. If Kandi & The Gang is cancelled will she beg for her peach back?

Kandi's peach went to Marlo Hampton, left, who was a "friend" on RHOA for over a decade.

Season 14 saw the third return of original cast member Shereé Whitfield (right). "I'm back, back, back again," said Shereé, who updated everyone on her relationship with ex-convict Tyrone.

"Tyrone has been around for a while. I put in so much time with this guy," she said. Shereé took Tyrone in after he was incarcerated for several years. The 52-year-old said she wants to know if "love conquers all" now that he's out of prison.

Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross, Drew Sidora and Kenya Moore round out the cast of season 14.

Daughter Camara, a.k.a. "Mother Mathis," decided to forego a career to raise a family of her own with her husband, Ryan. Camara and Ryan are parents to daughters, Nora and Zara. It's easy to see why Camara is her father's favorite child.

Due to his long hours on the set, Mathis wasn't always around to be a strong father figure to his sons.

Son Greg Jr. is working in real estate ventures alongside his long-term boyfriend Elliott. While Mathis' youngest son, Amir, is building his production empire after his recent divorce.

Amir's wife moved out and filed for divorce after she discovered he had a girlfriend on the side.

Polygamy is a tradition in other cultures, but it hasn't caught on in America yet. Polygamy means having more than one wife or husband.

The numbers are in for "The Kardashians" Hulu special that aired last Wednesday. As you know, the Kardashians and the Jenners have gone all out to promote the new series, after "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was canceled last year.

Kim Kardashian divorced Kanye West and took up with another mentally addled celebrity, Pete Davidson. The two of them are constantly agitating Kanye on social media in an effort to boost interest in the TV series.

Their efforts failed miserably.

via Rhymes with Snitch -- According to reports the Kardashian Hulu Special debuted on Hulu affiliate ABC last Wednesday that only pulled in 2.8 million viewers.

In comparison "Survivor" pulled in 5.5 million viewers on CBS and "Chicago Med" pulled in 6.6 million on NBC in the same time slot. Making matters worse the coveted younger demographic did not tune in at all for the K Klan, only the older folks.

Kandi Burruss says NeNe Leakes once called her the racial slur "c**n". The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star -- who quit to star in her own show, "Kandi & the Gang," on Bravo -- revealed the incident to Raquel Harper on the "It's Tricky" podcast on Wednesday.

Kandi insisted her old castmate called her a "c**n" when they had beef right before Bravo took Kandi's side and gave NeNe the boot.

At the time, NeNe accused Kandi of creating "fake beef" for a plot line.

In May 2020 NeNe wrote:

"I will NOT let the fake beef YOU made up to stop me from wishing you a Happy Birthday & posting my favorite pic of us Kandi. Everybody go wish @kandi a Happy Birthday! Then tune into #RHOA to watch Kandi have the fakest, want some smoke, beef wit Nene segment at 8pm TONIGHT on @bravotv."

NeNe, who will be featured on BET's reboot of "College Hill: Celebrity Edition," announced she was departing RHOA in the summer of 2020.

Their longstanding beef may have something to do with Kandi being favored by Bravo TV's executives.

When Raq asked Kandi to explain where the bad blood comes from, Kandi claimed she doesn't know why NeNe hates her.

However, she guessed that it may have something to do with their respective success on the network, or NeNe's lack of success, according to TMZ.

In September 2020, NeNe accused Bravo exec Andy Cohen of being racist: "The racist is the master manipulator! They using me for ratings like they have always done."

In a separate interview on SiriusXM Urban View's The Clay Cane Show, Kandi said she disagreed with NeNe's allegations that Cohen was "racist".

"[A]t that time, we still had like, four or five of us, who had been there for a while, making some real good money," said Kandi.

"It's not like one person is doing well on the show, multiple women on this show are doing really well... It's certain things that you may not like, certain things that you may want to try to do better, but, overall, to say that they were racist – I didn't agree with that at all."

Kandi Burruss' new reality TV series Kandi & The Gang premiered to low ratings last week.

Former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member NeNe Leakes took pleasure in Kandi's pain.

NeNe, who was fired from RHOA last year, thanked fans for not watching the series, based on Kandi and husband Todd Tucker's Old Lady Gang restaurant in Atlanta.

While NeNe's fans gloated over Kandi's rock-bottom ratings, NeNe seemed to encourage the hate.

One fan quoted NeNe in a tweet:

"Kandi & the Gang Flopped w/69th place! 'You can never win when you play DIRTY. Stay woke!'"

Another fan wrote: "I refuse to watch, for so many reasons. And I've always believed Nene, she is missed."

NeNe responded by thanking the fan for not watching Kandi's new show.

Speaking of new reality TV series, BET is bringing back "College Hill" with a new cast featuring older celebrities who either dropped out of college or never went.

Bravo's new reality TV series "Kandi and the Gang" is getting terrible reviews on social media. The new series premiered on March 6, and features Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, her mom, Joyce, and her aunts Bertha and Nora.

The series centers around Kandi's Old Lady Gang restaurant on Peters Street in southwest Atlanta.

We learn in the first 5 minutes that Joyce, Bertha and Nora are "Old Lady Gang" in name only. The women - who are in their 80s - don't actually run the restaurant or work in the kitchen.

Oh, and they despise the staff.

Two of the restaurant's hostesses are strippers, and Kandi hired a band of misfits to prepare the food.

YouTube/Bravo

It's apparent that Kandi is unprepared to run any restaurant. Every time she opens her mouth, her husband, Todd, corrects her.

There are so many problems with OLG - and they all begin with Kandi. She's not a very good judge of character. That's probably why she brought back "hostess" Shawndreca Robinson, who we're told was previously fired for insubordiation.

Shawndreca doesn't get along with the restaurant's manager, Phillip, who sent her home for talking back to him.

The first thing Kandi wanted to know was why he sent Shawndreca home just for being rude.

Watch the full episode here.

Here are a sample of reviews on Twitter:

Angela Simmons is not joining the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta in season 14. Blogger B. Scott sparked rumors when he said Rev. Run's daughter was spotted on set filming for season 14.

Prince Williams/WireImage

B. Scott said Angela and singer Ne-Yo's ex-fiancée, Monyetta Shaw (right) were filming with the cast. Unlike most messy bloggers, B. Scott's tea is usually piping hot and accurate.

However, sources from the Bravo production team tell TMZ that Angela is not joining the cast. Angela is friends with a few other Real Housewives cast members including Marlo Hampton.

Jvshvisions / BACKGRID

Angela has a minor son to raise and she has business ventures that require her attention.

Season 14 will include old timers Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Drew Sidora, Sheree Whitfield, and Marlo Hampton. Sanya Richards-Ross, a former track and field star, has also been added to the lineup.

As for rumors that NeNe Leakes will make a surprise comeback, creator Andy Cohen is adamant she will not return.

He said, during an appearance on "The Real" last month:

"You know, we are in the midst of shooting season 14 of the Atlanta housewives, and it's great and Marlo has her peach and Shereé is back, and we have some new faces and some great faces and Kenya Moore is on fire, and so I am really focused right now on season 14 of the housewives of Atlanta and not really looking beyond that right now."

Last Sunday Porsha Williams' Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off, 'Porsha's Family Matters' debuted on Bravo Network. The ratings are in.

According to RhymeswithSnitch, "Less than 1 million people tuned in for Porsha's show despite over a million turning in for Nicki and the ladies from Potomac."

Only 869,000 viewers tuned in to watch Porsha's Family Matters, starring Simon Guobadia, 57, and his fiancee Porsha, 40.

Porsha's Family Matters should have benefited from following the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion show finale hosted by Nicki Minaj.

Simon scandalously cheated on his wife, Falynn, with Porsha. For some reason, Bravo thought viewers would tune in to watch a cheating man and a homewrecker.

It seems viewers tuned out because no one likes a cheater.

By the way, Nicki Minaj helped the RHOP pull in 1.2 million viewers.

Watch the full episode of Porsha's Family Matters' series premier below (if you care).

She said her family members were hurt that she would be Simon's fourth wife.

"I have single handedly pulled my family and friends into my personal shit," she said in a voiceover. Later, a relative asks her about his previous failed marriages.

"I want to know why Simon's three previous marriages did not work," the relative said.

Another one of Porsha's relatives expressed her dismay that she found out about Simon on TV. "How you engaged to a married man?"

Cynthia, who joined the cast of RHOA in season three, announced her departure on Instagram on Monday.

"After much thought and consideration, I have made the very difficult and heartfelt decision not to return for the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Thank you NBC Universal, Bravo, and Truly Original for over a decade of partnership. I can't wait to see what we do next!"

She also thanked her former castmates "for eleven of the most unbelievable years of my life; and the most incredible & UNFORGETTABLE memories!"

One of Akon's harem of wives, Tomeka Thiam, will join the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It isn't clear if Tomeka will be a "friend" of the cast, or if she even knows any of the cast members personally.

What is clear is that Tomeka has enough drama in her life to fill several seasons of scripts.

Maciel / BACKGRID

For starters, Tomeka is one of Akon's handful of wives. It's unknown if she's the main wife or just one of his concubines.

Sources close to production tell TMZ, that Tomeka has agreed to be part of season 14 of 'RHOA' and will film with the other Housewives beginning in November.

According to TMZ, no official decision has been made on whether she will be a regular, a "friend", or just make a guest appearance.

Former RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield is also rumored to return to the show, but only if she regained full-time Housewife status with her own peach in hand.

Akon, who is Senegalese, famously admitted he has several wives, but it's unclear if he or any of his other wives will make an appearance on the new season of RHOA.

Akon sparked controversy during a concert in 2017 when he simulated sex with a 15-year-old girl at the Zen Nightclub in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago as part of a fake contest.

As a result of the scandal, Verizon Wireless removed cellphone ringtones featuring Akon's songs. Verizon also pulled out as a sponsor of The Sweet Escape Tour where Akon was the opening act for Gwen Stefani.

Producers plan to offer Sanya a peach if things work out with the other cast members.

The producers have reportedly "gutted" the cast and are auditioning for fresh new faces to fill all 7 slots.

Back in July, lovebscott.com revealed exclusively that Porsha Williams is not likely to return to the series.

"The network loves Porsha and wants her to stay, but Porsha reportedly doesn't want to deal with the negativity surrounding her soon-to-be husband. Her concern is that, for example, producers and/or the other ladies will bring other women to the show that Simon has allegedly been involved with."

B. Scott also revealed that Cynthia Bailey is out as a cast member, and original cast member Shereé Whitfield is returning after more than a decade.

Marlo Hampton, a longtime friend of the show, is rumored to be getting her own peach as a full-time cast member.

And restaurateur Kandi Burruss, who joined RHOA in season 2, was shown the door.
