Real Housewives of Atlanta Photo Shoot

Check out the shots from Derek Blanks' photo shoot with the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Sheree - 7-Figure Thief & Victim
NeNe: "Sheree was great and I'm glad we were able to do it. Sheree finally did get her 7 figures. We know how Sheree likes money."
Sheree: "I totally see a little of Sheree in both of the characters, the glam girl and the bad ass girl. it is absolutely beautiful, I loved it."

NeNe - Straight Laced Lady & Stripper
Kandi: "I had the opportunity to direct NeNe. In the first scene I gave her a little direction, but in the second one she needed nooo direction. It was all natural."
NeNe: "It was very much my personality. I absolutely loved it."

Lisa - Girl Scout & Bad Girl
NeNe: "I chose this alter ego for Lisa because I say she's my gangsta boo."
Lisa: "I did like my photo. I can't relate to pushing the girl scout down and taking her cookies, that is totally not me. I was like, I would be the one defending the girl scout!"

Kandi - Drunk Driver & Pedestrian Victim
NeNe: "In the very beginning I chose an alter ego for Kandi to be a bride and a groom, I wanted her to be a man and a woman ... and Kandi called me up and said, 'I think I want to go a little bit deeper, because my family was involved in a car accident.' I really appreciated what she decided to do."
Kandi: "I loved my photo when I saw it, because my family was able to be there and AJ's family was able to be there. It wasn't just a generic alter ego it was really something that not only meant something to be, but was important for people to see."

Kim - Stepford Wife & Mistress
NeNe: "Kim was a Stepford Wife and a mistress. So typical Kim. A mistress."

Will Rachel be OK? And will Taylor leave "Team Zoe"?

She by Sheree at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Blogging Bravo Field Reporter Trish O'Shea graciously covered the She by Sheree Fashion Show in New York on Sunday Sept 13th. Thanks Trish!

A few weeks back I was checking the NY Fashion Week schedule and noticed on the list "She by Sheree." At Fashion Week??? Well me being the quintessential "Real Housewives" fan I IMMEDIATELY signed up for the job!

It was a good thing that I checked that schedule again the morning of the show because if I hadn't, I would have missed the whole thing! The venue AND time had changed! Sigh...

I headed over to the city from New Jersey and got on-street parking very close to the venue (score!) I wasn't sure exactly which entrance was the right one but then I noticed some very fashionable people standing outside so I figured I was in the right place - and I was! A line began to form (although no one actually TOLD us to line up!) About 45 minutes later, they starting letting people in and away we went - upstairs to the "Red Bull Space" on Thompson and Watts!

The event wasn't a "runway," it was more of what fashion shows are becoming - drinks, snacks and clothes! Three looks came out at first on a stage, but the girls were quickly directed to stand on platforms in the room so that more looks could come out on a stage. Fabulous folks noshed on fruit, bagels, pastries and drinks as they checked out Sheree's designs.

It was hard to tell exactly how many looks we saw since it took a while for the models to rotate but the clothes for the most part were beautifully designed. I do agree with some of the others reviews I've read of the show - the styling was what REALLY pushed the collection over the edge. It had sort of a "bling" factor featuring necklaces that in most cases were worked INTO the clothes, rather than just accessorize. I LOVED the white pants, paired with the silver top that had the "bling" worked into the back - unexpected!

We were told about half-way through that Sheree would be appearing for photographs and then would be available to answer questions. She took the stage and posed for photos flanked by her models. Sheree was wearing a black dress with a low back and it looked great on her, but no one was clear on whether or not the look was part of the collection.

Flipping Out Previews

Jeff is non-stop with work to try and make up for the effects of the economy on his business, and when he finds himself in the position of having to ask his client for more money to work with, it becomes awkward.

And when Jeff comes down with a severe case of food poisoning, Zoila realizes that she may have been the cause…is she really to blame? And did she do it on purpose?!

Time for Faux

Here is my LimeRecap of last night's episode - LOVE this show!!!!

Time for Faux

There once was a stylist named Zoe
Who declared, “It is now time for faux.”
(She still may prefer
To go out in fur
This stuff’s so good no one would know.)

Tiger J’s willing and able
To put the Zoe name on their label.
They agree it is time
And Rachel looks fine
In fabulous full-length faux sable.

So, those who believe fur is bad.
The fur industry makes you mad.
HSUS videos
Reveal something hideous.
Take comfort, in faux Rachel’s clad!
