Uggghhh I am trying to get into this show but for some reason I can’t. I feel like something is missing…. I knew they were going to play the race card with Stacie, which is corny to me. Cat is a snob! She has no censor on her mouth so it is easy to pit the two of them against each other. Cat is alternately skittish and disdainful. Michaele is actually not bad though they want us to view her as the Danielle/Jill/Kim of the show. Mary bores me and Lynda does as well. Let the cat fights begin….
A man has been arrested in connection with the beating death of Ashley Jewell, the fiancé of Kandi Burruss, a castmember of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta
Homicide detectives arrested the suspect, Fredrick Richardson, who has been charged with voluntary manslaughter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jewell, 34, known as A.J., appeared regularly on the hit reality show, often clashing with Burruss’s mother. He died of massive head injuries sustained while in a fight in the parking lot of an Atlanta strip bar called the Body Tap Club.
“Kandi is devastated as she is also mourning the death of her uncle, Ralph Leslie, and is attending his funeral today,” TreMedia said in a statement on behalf of the reality star Saturday. “She has no statement to make at this time and asks for privacy. There are no final details on the death of AJ.”
Richardson was hospitalized with injuries he received during in the altercation, but will be jailed once he’s released by medical staff.
Authorities are “trying to figure out [what happened],” Atlanta police spokesman Officer James Polite told the newspaper. “We had a pretty good number of witnesses that are being cooperative.”
According to police, Jewell worked at the club but he did not know in what capacity.
Burruss reacted to the death with the following messages on her Twitter page:
• im just in one of those moods where i dont wanna talk, i dont wanna b held & told its gonna b ok. i just wanna cry myself 2 sleep, alone.
• I could never n a million years imagine this happening. please pray for AJ’s children. that’s who im the most concerned 4.
• im bout 2 giv my swollen eyes sum rest now. i just wanted to say thanks 2 every1 for their prayers. i gotta get up & go 2 my uncle’s funeral
Burruss’s publicist Lisa Nelson told the Atlanta TV station that Burruss, 33, a singer-songwriter who recorded with the band Xscape and worked with TLC and Mariah Carey, was “stunned and speechless” when told the news.

Bridezilla’s All New Season: Premieres Sunday, June 7 at 9p|8c
Bridezillas—you know them, you love them and they’re back…and more outrageous than ever. Keep checking back for a complete episode guide, bios, videos and more! But for now, watch your favorite moments from Season 5.
Update: She was on ‘My fabulous Wedding’
“Dina and Tommy are planning one of the most expensive weddings New Jersey has ever seen. Since Tommy and his brother Al own a high-end banquet facility, they know the biz and have enough cash to get anything they want. Bottom line… there’s no budget for this grand affair. Dina, an interior decorator, is indulging plenty — to the tune of $50,000 for hand-blown glass butterflies and $10,000 for a Badgley Mischka couture gown. But as the planning progresses, she feels Tommy & Al are running the show. Making matters worse, Tommy won’t stop adding to their already massive 600 person guest list….even down to the last minute! With almost $500,000 in flowers flown in from around the world, over $70,000 in entertainment, thousand dollar bottles of wine, and a 7-foot cake Tommy and Dina’s day is one for the ages. In the end, the bill is staggering: over a million bucks.”
