Deshawn Snow Speaks Out About Getting the Axe+Tameka Foster Is NOT The Next ATL Housewife+T.I.'s New Show+Obama Hennessy?

So Deshawn didn't know she was getting the axe from Bravo and won't be appearing on Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Atlanta".  She gave Essence an interview saying she she wasn't asked back because she "was too human for the circus show". In other words, she didn't fit the crazy gold digger loud mouth black woman stereotype Bravo wants to pump up even more for next season.  SMDH.  Here's a snippet of the interview:
ESSENCE.COM: We hear that you are no longer returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Is that true? DESHAWN SHOW: Yes, one of the producers called me yesterday and said that they wouldn't take my option. ESSENCE.COM: What reason did they give for not inviting you back for the second season? SNOW: [One of the producers] called and said that I was "too human for a circus show" and that because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn't think that I would fit in. He gave me an example, saying that during the reunion when I found out what a few of the other ladies said about me, they were expecting me to say more, but I'm not the type to go "television" and start acting crazy because somebody's talking about me. I'm fine with the decision. It wasn't my decision. They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity. ESSENCE.COM: So were you at all shocked by the decision? SNOW: I didn't see it coming. I was shocked because I just talked to them in December about the new season. It's not like they came to me and gave me an option by saying, "We're going to take a new direction and we want to know if you could be more like this." I was a little hurt, but I just look at it like I am what I am. [My personality] didn't seem to be a problem before, but I suppose the show took a different direction and they no longer see me as the right fit. If you look at all the other housewives, they are all different. I believe God moves people out of your way. It's about God having his hand upon you and doing things for you. I'm not judging my situation. I look at the show as just a shutter-glimpse of what God has in store for me. I enjoyed being on the show and hanging with the girls. At the end of the day, I was the same person throughout the show. I never changed. I was authentic and true to myself and I can't control what other people do.

She says she's still in school and writing teen/children's books.  Tameka Foster has also spoken to Essence about the rumor that she'll be on Season 2.  She says it's definitely not true.  I'm not sure if I'm happy or mad about that. More ish when you read the rest...

He's just like the rest of us.  Prez Elect Obama was spotted shopping for a Christmas tree this week.  It'll probably be the last year for quite some time he'll be able to do this.  Fun times. And I bet you thought that was Mr. and Mrs.

*UPDATED* VIBE's Tabloid Issue+"ATL Housewives" Juicy Updates

VIBE magazine is launching its January issue...and it's the Tabloid Issue: This issue focuses on "The Juiciest, Hottest and Most Controversial News-Makers in '08". Everybody wants to gossip these days....

NeNe Leakes of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is speaking out about the reports that she and her family were evicted from their Sugerloaf home. Her statement:
"The recent rumors alleging that my family faced an eviction are a huge misunderstanding and grossly inaccurate. I am truly blessed to enjoy a wonderful life and lifestyle. We have indeed moved to another home, but we did so on our own free will. We live in an absolutely beautiful home and we are fortunate to be able to live in the place of our choice. Unfortunately, there are many families who are facing real foreclosures and real evictions. That is not and never was the case with us. I know where we live and how we live, and for those blessings I am humbly thankful. It is disappointing that many members of the media have chosen to report gossip instead of news. Without wasting time on the details, the only thing I will say is that we were NOT evicted. Everybody knows that I like to be honest, real and upfront. If something was wrong, I would tell you! Thank you for your well wishes. However, please know that my family continues to be abundantly blessed, and that Miss NeNe has not skipped a beat!"
The original source of the article isn't necessarily a gossip site, and I found it interesting that they had actual quotes from NeNe pretty much confirming the eviction. I would say she needs more people, but my attention span for this matter is dwindling quicker than ever. More on the "Housewives" when you read the rest...
