They bring the drama each week on the Bravo's 'Housewives' franchise, and though we only really watched 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' and 'Real Housewives of DC;' both reality shows had stars that offered BV Buzz
a lot to talk about.
For example, 'Real Housewives of DC' star Stacie Turner
recently revealed to this column exclusively that she had become an African princess.
"It was the most incredible experience ever," the real estate mogul told us.
That's not all either. When
controversy brewed online with NFL star Willis McGahee
and his relationship with 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kandi Burruss
, the Baltimore Ravens running back came to BV Buzz
to clear up the scandal.
"I was expecting a little flack, but I wasn't expecting for it to be like this and have everybody trying to dig up dirt on you and posting all of these comments," the Miami-bred athlete told me.
Lastly, 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Sheree Whitfield
has been open about her divorce and baby daddy drama, but when she implied that R&B singer Nicci Gilbert
fame broke up her marriage, Gilbert reached out to BV Buzz
to set the record straight.
"At first it made me very angry! Especially knowing the truth and knowing that's the furthest thing from the truth," Gilbert emoted.
