On the outside, the newest Real Housewives of NY cast member Eboni K. Williams seems to have it all: brains, beauty, financial security, and a successful career.

But she's not married and her love life is a complete mystery to her loyal fans.

RHONY made history by hiring Eboni, 37, as the first Black cast member in the show's 13-year run.

The internet wonders why Bravo picked a Black woman who has never been married and has a history of failed relationships.

Internet sleuths uncovered information that Eboni dated her childhood friend Gray Sandy, but they split up.

A Fox News fan page on Twitter suggested that Eboni is high maintenance and she can be intimidating to men. The fan page noted that Eboni was "furious" that her ex-boyfriend didn't give her an orchid. That seems like a petty thing to some people.

The fan page even mocked Eboni, saying the "K" in Eboni K. Williams stood for "Kardashian."

But Eboni had a ready explanation for her controlling behavior.

She replied to the tweet with a joke, saying her ex-boyfriend promised to give her the flower only to renege because the plant was too expensive.

"Only because he promised me that he would lol.. then said they were too expensive lol," she tweeted.

Eboni also mentioned on August 11, 2017 that she was in a "wonderful relationship."

"I'm actually 34 years old (in sept) and I'm in a wonderful relationship."

Eboni, who was raised by a loving single mom, compared being fatherless to an open wound.

She tweeted: "@DrStevePerry Wow! You made me realize I've never purchased a Father's Day card either...amazing how unaware we are of our wounds #lifeclass"

She continued: "@G_u_r_A_MAYzing @DrStevePerry Truth!! My mother is INCREDIBLE but as fantastic as she is, she could never replace the role of father."

Cynthia Bailey's bachelorette party was off the chain. They say that, allegedly, two of her fellow cast members enjoyed a little girl-on-girl action. We don't believe it - especially if the RHOA cameras were on.

According to Page Six, things took a wild left turn with some girl-on-girl action and a scandalous hookup between two "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars and a male stripper.

Cynthia is set to tie the knot with fiancé Mike Hill at a lavish wedding in front of 250 guests in Georgia on Oct. 10.

via Page Six --

A source who witnessed the bash exclusively told us that some of the women began hooking up with each other in the living room of the house they were staying in in Charleston, South Carolina. There were about nine or 10 guests total invited to the party.

"There were multiple people that had girl-on-girl," a source said, adding that the hookups went beyond making out to oral sex in some instances. "They were so drunk."

We're told the cameras captured the alleged hookups in the living room since the cast is currently filming Season 13 of "RHOA."

The "Real Housewives of New York City" is making history by hiring their first Black cast member in the show's 13-year run.

TMZ has learned the Bravo series hired Eboni K. Williams to join the Big Apple ladies for season 13, which is already in production.

The attorney and TV host is ecstatic about her new gig, telling TMZ, "NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I'm excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can't wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn't been seen before."

Eboni added, "Anyone who's aware of my work knows I don't hold back. I'm going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else."

It's true. Eboni has a reputation for being loud and argumentative (which may explain why she's single).

The 37-year-old Charlotte native co-hosted "FOX News Specialists" before leaving FNC at the end of 2018. For a short time, Eboni co-hosted a talk show on WABC Radio in NYC and currently co-hosts "State of the Culture" on Sean Combs's Revolt TV.

Eboni earned her law degree from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law -- and she clerked for Louisiana's Secretary of State and the state's Attorney General.

As TMZ reported, the show's producers Also auditioned Bershan Shaw, another potential Black housewife. In the end, they decided Eboni was the better fit as a full-time cast member. It's still possible Bershan will make appearances.

After months of denials, NeNe Leakes finally confirmed that she was let go from the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

But Wendy Williams doesn't believe NeNe will go quietly. The talk show Diva is convinced NeNe will beg for her job back after the going gets rough.

Wendy, 56, resumed her talk show on Monday, and discussed NeNe's departure from RHOA.

"It's a money thing," said Wendy, who has an on-again-off-again friendship with NeNe, 52. Wendy is convinced NeNe is simply holding out for more money.

"She said she can't do it. She knows what she's worth and she can't be there. There's not enough filming time for her to make sense and there's not enough money in it for her to make sense."

Wendy said NeNe is too desperate for attention to stay away for long.

"NeNe will always be the queen bee and I don't believe she won't be back. I think she likes a lot of attention and I think Bravo likes to boil the pot and bring them back."

Wendy said she texted former RHOA executive producer Andy Cohen, and "he texted back and said [there will be] 'a lot of surprises this season.'"

"In conclusion, I don't believe anything about the NeNe thing," Wendy said.

NeNe Leakes is in good spirits a day after confirming she is departing Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

NeNe posted a boudoir photo that showed her wearing a lacy negligee on Friday. The former stripper captioned the heavily Photoshopped photo, "Sometimes you have to hit the reset button."

NeNe's unmade bed was blurred out in the background of the photo.
 

NeNe confirmed her exit from RHOA in a video on her YouTube channel on Thursday. "I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation," she said.

NeNe tried to save face by claiming she made the decision to leave.

"There's been a lot of emotion flying from both sides. It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' Season 13. It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."

Word has it that the producers thought NeNe, at age 52, wasn't connecting with Gen-Z. Her constant rants and jabs at everyone from her castmates to producers grew tiresome.

"I'm just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for black ensemble reality shows," she said.

She thanked Bravo's producers for "all the memories, the laughs, the tears."

Bravo isn't done cleaning house. Other aging cast members who will be phased out next year reportedly include Cynthia Bailey, 53, Kenya Moore, 49, and Kandi Burruss, 44.

NeNe Leakes officially confirmed her departure from Real Housewives of Atlanta after denying the rumors for months.

The news that NeNe was let go from the reality TV franchise was first reported by blogger B. Scott in June.

The mom of two responded to allegations that she was not invited back to the show due to insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted in June.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her manager reportedly broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

NeNe finally confirmed the inevitable in a video on her YouTube channel on Thursday. "I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation," she said.

NeNe tried to save face by claiming she made the decision to leave.

David Adefeso reportedly wants to be completely edited out of ex-fiancée Tamar Braxton's forthcoming reality TV show Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!

Adefeso filed paperwork in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday, seeking legal protection, TMZ reported earlier this week.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, he's also desperately trying to get himself removed from her new TV show, because the editing makes him look bad.

An insider says he "does not want the show to air because he does not want to look bad, and have it affect his financial business".

"There is a scene in the show where David tries to get in between Tamar and... a spiritual adviser," they explain. "David believes the spiritual adviser practices voodoo, and does not believe in her method of spirituality. There's a scene where production wraps, but the audio was still on. You can hear Tamar yell, 'David, stop'."

Another apparent incident occurred last month when David posted a video with Tamar's son Logan Herbert, 7, on a trip to the beach, without her knowledge.

The source went on to insist David - who is the developer of a tuition-savings app - "does not want his business to be harmed".

It's the latest drama in Tamar's personal life, as she continues to recover following a suicide attempt in July. David found the "Love and War" singer unresponsive in their Los Angeles hotel suite after she reportedly ingested a cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol.

The Braxton Family Values star subsequently blamed WE tv's "toxic" reality TV environment for her mental health struggles, and she publicly praised her man as her "angel" for supporting her through the rough period.

The internet is celebrating the news that reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians will end in 2021.

Kim Kardashian made the announcement via Instagram on Tuesday, revealing the show, which debuted on E! in 2007, will shut down after 2 more seasons in 2021.

Addressing fans, Kim said, "It is with heavy hearts that we've made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up With the Kardashians. After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years..."

Reports are that the poorly-rated reality show got the ax because manager Kris Jenner got greedy.

According to OK! magazine, E! network refused to pay another $150 million to keep Kim Kardashian and her sisters dipped in diamonds and furs for another five years.

"The last deal Kris Jenner signed was in 2017 giving her and the family $30 million per season. That deal has expired, and greedy Kris wanted at least $40 million per season to continue even though ratings have been declining dramatically," a source tells OK! exclusively.

KUWTK averaged less than 1 million viewers per episode despite hundreds of millions of social media followers.

"The negotiations were going nowhere. E! was interested in keeping the show on the air, but there was no way the network could continue paying the family the same amount of money for almost half as many viewers. In the end it was better for everyone to say goodbye," the insider adds.

"Although Kris isn't giving up just yet, she is busy on the phone shopping the show around to other networks. But not at a discounted price."

We'll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way."

Kim also thanked producer Ryan Seacrest and his E! team for "documenting our lives".

"Our last season will air early next year in 2021," Kardashian added. "Without Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I wouldn't be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever."

The news comes as Kim and her husband Kanye West fight to save their marriage after living apart in different states for two years.

West is also currently staging an unlikely bid to replace Donald Trump as U.S. President.

Tamar Braxton and WE tv have officially severed ties, following Braxton's emotional open letter about the "toxic" reality TV environment.

In a new statement from WE tv, obtained exclusively by Variety, the network said, "Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best,” reads the WE tv statement.

The decision comes just one day after Braxton said the network "betrayed, overworked, and underpaid" her.

Until now, Braxton was the second highest paid star on the network, behind only her sister, Toni Braxton.

On Thursday, July 30, the 43-year-old R&B singer broke her silence about WE tv's betrayal that drove her to attempt suicide.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

Braxton said producers betrayed her deep dark secret that she was repeatedly raped from age 6 to 16.

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer said. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

Braxton eventually appealed to network officials at WeTV two months ago to release her from her "excessive and unfair" contract, but stated, "My cry for help went totally ignored."

"Who I was, begun [sic] to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter," she continued. "It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me."

She went on to insist, "Mental illness is real," and credited "God's grace and His mercy" with saving her life, as she vowed to use her voice going forward to ensure no other reality stars face the kind of exploitation she insists she was subjected to for over a decade.

Braxton's new reality TV series "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life" will premiere on WE tv on Sept. 10.

Singer Tamar Braxton broke her silence about the "toxic" reality TV environment that drove her to attempt suicide.

The 43-year-old R&B star was hospitalized in Los Angeles on July 16 after her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her disoriented and lethargic in her hotel suite after she apparently swallowed a handful of prescription pills.

She spent several days in a coma but has since regained consciousness and is currently being treated for mental health issues.

On Thursday, July 30, Braxton opened up about her suicide attempt in a candid post on Instagram.

Alongside a photo of herself and her seven-year-old son, Logan Herbert, Braxton began by thanking fans for their well wishes.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

"In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing," she continued.

"I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago."

Braxton explained life under the reality TV spotlight has slowly eaten away at her spirit, and blamed producers behind her family series Braxton Family Values of doing little to help with her mental health struggles, particularly over the last five years, during which she split from her now ex-husband and manager Vincent Herbert.

She claimed to have been betrayed by show producers, who "filmed the damage made, for monetary gain".

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer added. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

"I will make it my mission to establish the initiative that fights for ethical business practices in reality TV, fights the ownership of our businesses, promotes growth and evolution of our stories, and gives us 100 per cent equity in our freedom," she added.

The star's candid statement comes days after WeTV bosses chose to postpone the premiere of her new reality series, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life, which had been due to launch on Thursday, July 30.

The series will premiere on Sept. 10.

I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago. Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world. Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person.

I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me. Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.

NeNe Leakes called out a former co-worker for selfishly using her for their personal gain. The mom-of-two made the comment on Twitter.com on Friday.

"Have you ever worked with a sociopath who used you for their personal gain to achieve what they want for themselves."

She followed up with, "You see there's something wrong, You know something is wrong but you do nothing to stop it. Why? Do you lack empathy?"

Some of NeNe's followers guessed she was calling out Andy Cohen, who previously worked as a producer for Bravo before stepping down.

Bauer-Griffin/GC Images

As you know, a sociopath is a mentally and emotionally unstable person who suffers from antisocial personality disorder or narcissism.

Many sociopaths are socially likable people who tend to be charming, handsome and regarded highly by their peers.

But they lack empathy for others, and they can be manipulative and deceitful. A sociopath is a backstabber who smiles in your face while twisting the knife.

The entertainment industry is full of sociopaths and narcissists. Some would say NeNe herself is a narcissist who uses others for her own selfish needs.

Question: Who do you think NeNe is referring to?

Former Bad Girls Club star Demitra "Mimi" Roche passed away on Wednesday at age 34. Her death was announced by her former colleague and record producer Vince Valholla, founder of Valholla Entertainment.

Roche worked at Valholla Entertainment as vice president of A&R at the independent record label.

"I'm at a loss for words. Don't know what to say," Valholla wrote on Twitter. "Mimi was kind to everyone she came across. She was big dreamer & was part of our Valholla family. I'm heartbroken by the news of her passing. I'm thankful I got to know & work w/her."

Roche, who recently celebrated her 34th birthday, starred in Bad Girls Club season 8, which aired on Oxygen Network in 2012. Roche was known as "Miami Maverick" on the show.

The series centered around a group of women who lived in a mansion for three months.

Roche's death comes nearly 2 weeks after the unexpected death of YouTube star Nicole Thea, 24, who died of a massive heart attack while 8 months pregnant. Her unborn son, named Reign, did not survive.
