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."

Which Bravolebs Are Guest Starring on ‘Rupaul's Drag Race’?

Plus: find out who's signed on as a permanent judge!

 

The upcoming season of Logo’s Rupaul’s Drag Race is going to have some major star power on its judging panel. None other than Bravo’s own Carson Kressley, along with comedian Ross Matthews, will be on-hand to expertly weigh in on who stays—and who sashays away.

“I asked for a new, wickedly funny, smart and experienced judge…and I got two!” RuPaul declared. “Ross and Carson are the perfect addition to the RuPaul's Drag Race family because they're not just show biz experts, they're superfans and longtime lovers of the art of drag.”

“Oh what a thrill to be a judge on season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race!” Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’s Carson said. "The wigs, the lashes, the gowns—but enough about us judges—the girls this season are so 'sickening,' it's the best season yet!”

But that’s not all! Season 7 is going to also have a host of celebrity judges including two more of Bravo’s finest experts on the art of drag: Kathy Griffin and Project Runway’s Santino Rice. Both the comedian and the designer have proven themselves to be huge, hilarious personalities ready with a quip (or ten), which as any fan of the competition reality show knows, is the perfect recipe for sassy goodness.

The new season of Rupaul’s Drag Race premieres on March 2nd on Logo.
