The Week by Bravo: Kandi Breaks Down, Kenya Slams Brandi

Plus: Mariah Carey on WWHL, meet Cynthia Bailey's new dog and more.

From Kandi's breakdown to NeNe's return to Glee to Patti Stanger's new jewelry line, there were plenty of Bravo happenings this week. Read on for all the news, clips and gossip you might have missed.

Kandi Burruss Breaks Down on WWHL

Kandi Burruss's ongoing struggle with her mother over her engagement to Todd came to a head this week on Watch What Happens Live. In an emotional statement, Kandi said that despite the problems she's had with her mom, she still feels that it is her responsibility as her daughter to "make sure [my mom's] good. She made sure I was good growing up," Kandi said through tears. "I don't care if she doesn't like my relationship. That's my mom."

Kenya Speaks Out

Brandi Glanville angered a lot of people this week after chiding Joyce Giraud for not getting in the pool, saying "You're a black person...all my black friends can't swim." The joke didn't appeal to Joyce, and it apparently didn't sit well with Kenya Moore either. "Brandi cannot be more ignorant," Kenya tweeted.

Mariah Carey to Visit WWHL

Musical legend Mariah Carey will grace the Watch What Happens Live stage this month! The pop superstar will sit down with Andy Cohen on December 22, and we can't wait. Now the question remains: will she Plead the Fifth? Will there be shotskis involved? Tune in next Sunday at 11/10c to find out.


Wendy Williams Calls Lisa Vanderpump a "Mean Girl"

As if Wendy Williams hasn't stirred up enough trouble, she's now weighing in on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards guested on The Wendy Williams Show this week, where Wendy dubbed Lisa Vanderpump the show's "original mean girl." Wendy made the comment after Kyle spoke about the tension between her and Lisa, saying, "It's been rough."


NeNe Leakes Will Tell All

NeNe Leakes is certainly not one to mince words, and she will soon be baring all to E!'s Giuliana Rancic. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is sitting down with Rancic for an hour-long interview special, where she'll open up about her difficult childhood, stardom, her past as an exotic dancer, and much more. "I feel like strength comes from within," Leakes said. "I've been through so many things in my life and those things have taught me."


Weddings of the Year by Bravo

2013 was the year of the wedding, and saw several of our Bravolebs take the walk down the aisle to say “I do.” From NeNe Leakes' Old Hollywood extravaganza, to Joanna Krupa's over-the-top nuptials, to Curtis Stone's private ceremony, we've rounded up the best of Bravo's 2013 weddings.


Carlton Gebbia Meets Stevie Nicks

Carlton Gebbia fulfilled every Fleetwood Mac fan's wildest dream this week when she had a chance brush-in with Stevie Nicks. The run-in took place at a charity event in Los Angeles, and as a memento, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star snapped a picture of her two daughters posing with the rock star. "She is truly a legend and a class act," Carlton gushed to the Dish.


NeNe Leakes Returns to Glee

Real Housewives of Atlanta-turned-TV-star NeNe Leakes returned to Los Angeles this week to film Glee's final act. NeNe broke the news over Twitter, writing "that's right Coach Roz is back #glee #fairygodmother." The news is welcome, especially after the cancellation of The New Normal and the tragic death of Corey Monteith.


Meet Cynthia's New Puppy

Prepare your heart to melt--Cynthia Bailey welcomed an adorable new Pomeranian puppy named Bai Lei (pronounced Bailey). And even though he's only been a part of the family for a short time, Cynthia reports that he "thinks he is the king of the castle." And his quirky habits include eating crushed ice, and having an aversion to walking up the stairs. "He just hangs out downstairs until someone comes and gives him a ride."


Patti Stanger Launched a Jewelry Line!

Patti Stanger isn't just an expert in the matchmaking business--she can now add "jeweler" to her resume. The Millionaire Matchmaker star launched her first jewelry collection this month, called Je t'aime. Although this is her first collection, Patti is very familiar with the jewelry business--when she was younger, she worked for her dad in a jewelry shop. "My first job was working for him and I never stopped gem dreaming," she said. "It was always a dream of mine to have my own jewelry collection."

The Royal Baby: Everything We Know So Far

Plus: Justin Bieber's a prom crasher, Ellen and Matt call a truce and more viral news.

What's going viral? Who's been the top trending topic on Twitter? And what are the news stories that had us obsessed today? There's plenty of can't-miss stuff out there beyond our Bravoverse. And every day, we're rounding up all the must-see stories, Tweets, Instagrams, YouTubes, Vines, and more in one handy place. Enjoy!

Everything We Know About the Royal Baby
Maybe you haven't heard but there is soon going to be another royal baby. Prince William and Princess Kate will welcome another bundle of joy to join Prince George in the royal family very, very soon.

And while the world is counting down the moment until we found out if there will be a new Prince or Princess, there are a few things we already know about the newest royal.

Is It a Boy or Girl?
Since the news was announced last September, everyone has been wondering if the couple will have a boy or a girl. They haven't commented, but grandpa Prince Charles has made it clear he has a preference. "I'm looking forward to it—but I hope it will be a girl this time," he said about his second grandchild.

Prince Harry Hopes Its a Girl
Prince Harry has admitted that he too would love to see the couple have a daughter, if only to torture his big brother.

Prince Williams Is Ecstatic
Just last month, William opened up about becoming a dad to two kids. "They say that number one is a life changer and that number two is a game-changer," he shared.

The News Will Break on Twitter
The news of the baby's birth (which is reportedly already four days overdue!) will come via social media, naturally. So this means that Royals fanatics need to keep refreshing the @KensingtonRoyal handle for the birth announcement.

The Prince and Princess Are Going to the Country
After the baby's birth at St. Mary's Hospital, the family will spend some time at Kensington Palace and then may head to to Norfolk and spend their time in the country in the 10-bedroom Anmer Hall.

There Might Be a Third Baby in the Future
Turns out Kate and William may want more than two kids. "I don't think they'll stop at two. So if it isn't a girl this time around, people shouldn't be too disappointed," her uncle Gary Goldsmith told Hello!. "I'm sure there'll be a girl in the mix at some point. As long as the baby is healthy, that is the important thing."

Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Lauer Call a Truce
The talk show host and Today Showanchor teamed up at the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday to call a truce in their (often nearly naked) prank battle. But as it turns out, the jokes didn't actually end there as the TV newsman was featured in the segment wearing pasties and not much else. It was all for charity with Matt pledging to pay out to a good cause every time a celeb thanked him during the show. It's nice gesture, but we kind of wish there was a better way to do good for the world after watching the once-you-see-it-you-can't-unsee-it video.

Justin Bieber Brings His Swag to Prom
If you ask us, all school proms need a celebrity cameo. And that's just what happened to students at Chatsworth Charter High School in California when their prom was crashed by the one and only Justin Bieber. And Bieber didn't just make an appearance, he got on the dance floor and partied it up with the highschoolers. Usually it's creepy when a 21-year-old shows up to prom, but this case it was kind of awesome.

Zayn Is Still in 1D, According to Stephen Hawking
This is kind of zany and also kind of awesome. According to famed scientist Stephen Hawking in some other universe out there, Zayn Malik is still a member of One Direction."My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay attention to the study of theoretical physics because, one day, there may well be proof of multiple universes," he advised heartbroken 1D fans. "It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another, different universe and, in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction." So, like, how do we get to that universe?

M. Night Shayamalan Is Back and Weirder Than Ever
Turns out that director M. Night Shayamalan has been spending his time out of the spotlight making weird movies. And the trailer for his new flick The Visit (about kids who visit their grandparents), he's back at his old tricks, making movies that will terrify us until the very end of time. Given his love for crazy twists, we imagine that this movie will take just as many unexpected turns. We love our grandparents, but this movie really makes us wonder about their real motives when they invite us over for cookies.
