'Real Housewives of Atlanta': Sheree dances like no one's watching (unfortunately, they were)

Last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta highlighted Sheree’s ballroom dancing debut. (Shocking, considering that she’s such a classy lady). It wasn’t exactly a Gene Kelly-caliber, or even a Brandy-level, performance, but who cares! Sheree was feeling the moves, feeling that giant hibiscus in her hair, and “felt damn good out there.” After the ladies suffered sat through performances of “Tardy for the Party,” the least Kim could do was keep a straight face during Sheree’s rhumba, right? (Of course not.) Go on Sheree, dance like no one is watching. READ FULL STORY

Under-appreciated Entertainer of the Year: Patricia Clarkson? Paul Wesley? A Real Housewife? Vote!

Underappreciated-Entertainers-3BImage Credit: Adam Taylor; Disney/Pixar; Adam Orchon/Everett Collection; Virginia Sherwood/Bravo; Quantrell Colbert/Bravo; Quantrell Colbert/BravoI’ve been pondering the philosophical implications of our latest Under-appreciated Entertainer of the Year bracket game, and I’m getting dizzy. Let’s just say that the divine Patricia Clarkson (Easy A, Shutter Island) edges the voice of Barbie from Toy Story 3, Jodi Benson, in Round 1 and goes on to win the entire contest. Does that make her the most Under-appreciated Entertainer of 2010, or by winning, is she no longer under-appreciated? By that argument then, isn’t the entertainer who loses the first-round popular vote by the largest margin, technically, the most underrated? And if the most underrated entertainer falls in the forest and there’s no paparazzi around to snap a picture, does the entertainer not bleed — Stop! My head hurts.

Underappreciated-Entertainers-3AImage Credit: Bob Mahoney/The CW; Virginia Sherwood/NBC; Jonathan MannionLet’s keep it simple. There are so many talented performers who are routinely excellent but don’t always get the credit. This is your chance to recognize the one who makes you smile most. Clarkson or Benson? Paul Wesley of The Vampire Diaries or Jesse Plemons of Friday Night Lights? Real Housewife of N.J. Teresa Giudice or Real Housewife of Atlanta Kandi Burruss? Big Boi, whose debut solo album was big but deserved to be bigger, or saucy chanteuse VV Brown, whose ubiquitous songs pop in and out of my favorite TV shows? Vote your heart, PopWatchers. Submit your round 1, day 3 vote after the jump, and click here to check out our entire bracket of 64 competitors.We’ll figure out the existential ramifications of the results after. READ FULL STORY

'Mad Men' fans are liberal, 'Family Guy' fans are sarcastic, says study of obvious things

Family-GuyImage Credit: FoxOffice fans are smug. Dancing With the Stars fans are compliant. Gleeks see themselves as experimental, and Mad Men fans are liberals. Oh market research, is there nothing you can’t categorize?

One research firm recently polled 25,000 viewers about 70 TV shows and broke down their tastes by personality traits, according to Ad Age. Some shows, like House and Bones appealed across a lot of demographics, but others had more specific viewers. Such as… READ FULL STORY

'The Real Housewives of D.C.' reunion preview: The ladies -- and gents -- come out swinging

salahi-party-crashersImage Credit: Scott Barbour/Getty ImagesThe majority of the drama on the first season of The Real Housewives of D.C was focused on the strange and confusing ways of Michaele Salahi and her husband Tareq (who is the unofficial sixth Housewife), leading up to the now infamous White House State Dinner last November. While the Salahis feel that last week’s finale left them “vindicated,” the rest of us were left scratching our heads. Are they for real? Thankfully, Andy Cohen is armed and ready…with a slew of tough questions (though he might want to consider packing something else after what went down during last month’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion). Some of the highlights include Andy to Cat: “Are you uncomfortable around black people?” Andy to Michaele and Tareq: “Did you get yourselves into the White House without an invitation?” Lynda to the room: “This is a goat rodeo!” READ FULL STORY

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' premieres tonight: We pre-rate the ladies' ridiculous lines from the opening credits!

real-housewives-beverly-hillsBravo’s Real Housewives franchise is nothing if not known for its plethora of drag-fabulous, ever-repeatable sound bites—everything from gems like Danielle Staub’s “pay attention, puh-leeeeze!” to Shereé Whitfield’s “who goin’ check me, boo?” But newsflash! One of the best, most sound bitey part of Housewives is during the show’s glitzy credits, where the ladies are introduced and each have a few seconds to utter one ridiculously narcissistic line. There are some classics from the five iterations of the show that are already out there, including Kelly Bensimon’s “I’ve created a great life, and I love living it”; Cat Ommanney’s “I’m not here for a long time—I’m here for a good time”; and Cynthia Bailey’s “I know how to work it—and be seen.” And with the franchise’s sixth iteration, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, premiering tonight (T-minus five hours!), we here at EW thought, why not preview—and, most importantly, rank!—the opening lines from the current crop of ladies? In case you don’t know the ladies yet, you can meet them in our handy meet-the-cast gallery. Here’s our ranking:


'The Real Housewives of D.C.': Michaele and Tareq Salahi on last night's finale

salahi-party-crashersEven before a single episode of The Real Housewives of D.C. had aired, Michaele and Tareq Salahi were already the most infamous cast members, thanks to their alleged “party crashing” at the White House State Dinner last November. Since then, many have painted the Salahis as bottom-feeders, looking for any and every way to inch their way inside D.C.’s most powerful and prestigious circles. Through it all, the Salahis have stood behind who they are, what they’ve done, and mostly, one another. Last night on Watch What Happens Live, the couple explained they couldn’t be happier with the “explosive” season finale, which showed that they did not give fake names to gain entry into the White House (though the question of whether or not they were actually invited still stands). EW caught up with the Salahis to further examine their reality show identities, discuss their plans for the future, and try to make some sense of their rise to fame er…infamy.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’ve said you are happy with the finale. Why?
TAREQ SALAHI: I think it says it all, [and] the video shows it all. We’re very pleased with it. It completely vindicates us.
We’re really excited that [it] was Bravo’s finale, that they did it so perfectly, [and] that they showed what really happened. Good or bad, we’re just very happy they captured who we really are, so it’s [been] a fun, fun experience.
TS:…but we’re vindicated. I mean we feel great, we feel relieved. READ FULL STORY

'The Real Housewives of D.C.' finale: The Salahi Show

Michaele-SalahiImage Credit: Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post/Getty ImagesBravo went for drama in the finale, relying on dramatic music and stern TV clips and a running reminder of the dates of these most scandalous events. (Although this soon lost power, as we’d skip from Dec. 3 to Jan. 13 and it started to feel like really all we were getting was the schedule of the Bravo production team. Also, there were two Thursday, Jan. 21 screen shots which means some poor intern made an uh-oh.) But back to TUESDAY, NOV. 24: the First Idiots were preening in their ridiculous limo, talking about the honor of knowing President Obama and how only people of the highest order got invited to State Dinners. Meanwhile red and purple and green neon strobes flashed slowly above their heads. The Salahis needed to get to the White House fast so the driver could make a U-ey and go pick up a crew of kids waiting outside the BCC homecoming dance.

'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star NeNe Leakes sounds off on tonight's premiere: 'I usually watch it with one eye open and one eye closed.'

NENEImage Credit: Quantrell Colbert/BravoTonight is the third season premiere of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which returns with two new cast members in model Cynthia Bailey and lawyer Phaedra Parks. Of course, NeNe, Kandi, Shereé, and Kim are back, too, with loads of drama. (NFL wifey Lisa Wu Hartwell is not returning.) If tonight’s episode is any indication, this season is going to be a doozy. And what better way to celebrate the craziness than to have ever-hilarious mouthpiece NeNe Leakes preview it all for us? Here, NeNe talks about what’s coming up for her (entertainment reporting!), her dynamic with all the other ladies, who’s doing her wrong (Dwight!), and who’s recording a single this coming season.

On her storylines: “You see a lot of ups and downs with me. I am working on my career. I’m working on being an independent woman these days. Besides being an author, I am trying to do talk show hosting bits. You’ll see me do an entertainment segment. You’ll see my relationships change with the girls throughout the season. I think you’ll see a more business NeNe. I’ve always been very business savvy, but you haven’t had the chance to see that side of me. You’ll still have the fun, outspoken, loud NeNe — that will never change — but you’ll see the business side of me.”

On her dynamic with Kim: “I think when you say ‘NeNe’ and ‘Kim’ in the same sentence, you need to end it with drama and some exclamation points! We will be friendly this season, but we will also have challenges to overcome.”


'The Real Housewives of D.C.' recap: 'Do you think Obama will remember us?'

Michaele-SalahiImage Credit: Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post/Getty Images“You work hard, you give a lotta love, you end up at the White House,” bragged Michaele in the limo ride to the State Dinner. That, or you end up on the Today Show refusing to answer questions. Or in your attorney’s office, offering to pay legal fees in bottles of Oasis pinot grigio. Or in the mouths of every late night host cracking jokes. Just give love!

“This is the American dream right here,” gushed Michaele Salahi as she got her makeup done at a D.C. salon. Ba bum! clanged Law & Order-style music after every grandiose line that popped out of this parakeet’s mouth. Michaele read somewhere about “bilateral relationships” and she used it as her go-to line on the nature of India and America’s ties. That afternoon at the salon may have been the happiest of her whole life. READ FULL STORY
