We were in the building for the screening of the new season premiere of We TV’s Growing Up Hip-Hop Atlanta (GUHHATL)!

The night kicked off with a very cute and classy concessions stand filled with the perfect snacks for a movie night. Movie theater styled complementary boxed candy favorites like Milk Duds, M & M’s and even Swedish Fish. The smell of fresh popcorn filled Midtown’s Woodruff Arts Center and the weather couldn’t have been better for celebrities and exclusively invited guests to get appropriately slayed for the occasion.

Additional VIPs included Da BratDatari Turner (producer, “GrowingUp Hip Hop Atlanta”); “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Estelita Quintero, Karlie Redd and Melissa ScottKenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”); Mama June and daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson (“From Not to Hot”); Trina and Towanda Braxton (“Braxton Family Values”); Gocha Hawkins (“LA Hair”); Quad Webb-Lunceford (“Married to Medicine”); Demetria McKinney (eOne Recording Artist), Gary Hayes (“Dish Nation”), Juicy (“Rickey Smiley Morning Show”), Syleena Johnson (“Sister Circle”), Dawn Halfkenny (“Saints & Sinners”), Bangladesh (music producer); as well as Web Stars Rahim Brazil, Rocc and November.

As we all know in Season 1 Bow Wow returns to Atlanta to record his final studio album but runs into trouble at the studio. Since last season Bow Wow has grown although we have to wait and see what drama unfolds with Jermaine Dupree and DaBrat due to Bow wanting to make Executive decisions. Zonnique continues to step up to take control over her music career. and is very focused on creating her identity in this season. Reginae, 19 now and in college, last year the conflict with castmate Brandon Barnes got out of control!!! We, literally have watched this young girl grow into a beautiful young woman who genuinely reminded us in the audience that “she is young and makes mistakes” this left us all wondering what’s going to happen next with Reginae and Brandon as we hope they sort out their differences.

Shaniah, Jermaine Dupri’s daughter returns, but with a secret boyfriend???!!! Let’s see how this unfolds this season. Brandon is back and with no patience for anyone or anything but focused on Artist Development. We had the pleasure of being introduced to, Promise, his managed group. They were so good, Reginae got up to give Brandon his props on their work. Ayana is fierce hunnayyy!! This season the young Mogul and entrepreneur is focused on growing and managing her clothing line Cozy Closet, where sexy meets comfort. Overall, this season is starting to look very interesting as we see the young Hip Hop moguls create their own lanes in the Hip Hop history like their parents.

Make sure you catch Season 2 Episode 1 of Growing Up Hip Hop ATL this Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 9:00PM EST!

It looks like Bravo’s “The Real Houswives” Franchise is about to expand a little further! Just when we thought there were not going to be any new cities joining the mayhem of these reality shows it looks like Salt Lake City, Utah is about to get its own set of “Real Housewives.”

The announcement about “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” took place this past weekend at Bravo Con, a convention hosted by Bravo TV that allows fans to meet, greet, and interact with their favorite Real Housewives from various franchises in addition to other series on the network. From Atlanta, we know Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, and Cynthia Bailey were all in attendance.

“‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ takes viewers into an undiscovered world that is about so much more than religion, although the (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) is undeniably engrained in the culture. In the majestic mountains of Utah is a hidden social circle made up of successful women who have created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees and multi-million-dollar businesses and brands. With Hollywood’s exclusive Sundance Film Festival in their backyards, these Type-A power-brokers are accustomed to rubbing elbows with A-listers and what party list you are on means everything. They have mastered running wildly successful enterprises by day and enjoy après ski at the finest resorts by night, all the while raising extraordinary and unconventional families. Here perfection is not an aspiration, it’s a mandate. They hold themselves and each other to an extremely high standard and never hold back when things go sideways, but lord knows they are always there for each other when they need it most.”

There has not been any casting news for the series, but we are hoping it will be good. We are sure, however, the cast will be mostly Caucasian and somewhat Mormon due to the demography of the area. We also hope the newest installment is a hit, as you may know “Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.” failed monumentally, lasting just one season. Perhaps it is time they recast that and try again, there have to be some amazing women to showcase there. We digress.

We will keep you posted as more about “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” comes to light.

Allegedly the ladies’ trip to Toronto almost became a violent getaway when veteran cast members, Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, and “unofficial friend” to the series, Gail ‘”Yovanna” Momplaisir, nearly came to blows! According to sources close to the show the conflict allegedly began when Nene showed up to dinner, “exposed.”

The night started off all wrong when NeNe Leakes allegedly ‘came in with her bare breasts exposed,’ causing speculation as to whether or not she was under the influence. The photo above was taken by an onlooker — and it’s easy to see how NeNe’s girls could’ve made a guest appearance.

If you recall, NeNe JUST resumed filming with the rest of the ladies last month after her weeks-long suspension.

“No one cared that she was there and she got zero reaction from any of the ladies — including Marlo and Yovanna (who’s around as an ‘unofficial friend).’”

According to our sources, Yovanna and Porsha went at it as well as Kenya and NeNe.

“Yovanna is a snake. No one really likes her and it’s clear she’s only around to be the villain,” said the source.

All we can say is this is a bit much. We are not sure what could make all of them get to a point where they are ready to fight in a restaurant, but we are not surprised. Kenya and Nene are practically mortal enemies at this point; and Porsha and Yovanna (As you recall last season she stated she was “that bitch” at Clark Atlanta University in her heyday) are hot heads. Last season was rather lackluster so it seems the ladies are making up for their less than stellar peformance in 2018. Kenya, welcome back!

Highly-connected sources tell lovebscott.com that the payouts for season 12 of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ may surprise you.

Newbie Shamari DeVoewho was demoted from official housewife to ‘friend of the show,’ is set to take home $20k for the upcoming season.

Eva Marcille, who will keep her peach, was paid under $100,000 last season and will see a small pay bump for season 12.

Cynthia Bailey is set to take home around $1.25 million.

New mom Porsha Williams is said to be making around $1.3 million.

For all of Marlo Hampton‘s mess, sources tell us that she’s still making less than $100,000 for her appearances this season.

Tanya Sam is is being paid on a day rate. Her money depends on the days she’s available to film.

NeNe Leakes made $100,000 PER EPISODE last season — bringing her season salary to $2.3 million. It’s expected that she’ll be making just a bit more this season.

Contrary to popular belief, we’ve also been told that Kandi Burruss is actually the highest-paid housewife of the Atlanta franchise and will be making just a little over what NeNe is taking home.

Kenya Moore‘s pay rate was just below NeNe and Kandi’s at the time of her departure, however sources tell us that Bravo wants to give her a substantial pay cut to return. They’re still ‘far off’ from coming to a deal.

We had no idea Shamari and Tanya would be paid so little for the upcoming season. Maybe the former can do something to get her peach back, it is not impossible. Porsha was temporarily demoted to a “friend of the housewives” after her fight with Kenya Moore.
