    Will Marlo Hampton replace NeNe Leakes on ‘RHOA’?

    The blogosphere is abuzz with news that there may be a new cast member joining “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

    Bravo hasn’t confirmed the rumor, but ATL insiders say Marlo Hampton, wife of NFL’s Charles Grant, has been spending a lot of time on-camera.

    Plus, Marlo has a lot of ties to the returning women, including NeNe Leakes, who has been seen wearing Marlo’s designs.

    Although sources say Marlo doesn’t actually live in Atlanta, it’s possible she may be featured as a friend to one of the lady’s in the way that Lawrence Washington and Dwight Eubanks are.

    Some speculate that Marlo’s entrance means an exit for NeNe Leakes, who reportedly hasn’t spent much time taping for season 4 and is allegedly on the outs with most of her ATL castmates.



    Kim Kardashian’s engaged
    Kim Kardashian is getting ready to walk down the aisle again. According to People magazine, NBA player Kris Humphries recently proposed to the reality star, and it took her completely by surprise.

    "I didn’t expect this at all," Kim said. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now."

    Reportedly, Kris popped the question with a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring. The happy couple celebrated the engagement with family.

    Lady Gaga not crazy about ‘Telephone’

    Lady Gaga has no love for her Beyoncé-assisted single "Telephone."

    “I can’t even watch the ‘Telephone’ video, I hate it so much. Beyoncé and I are great together," Gaga told TimeOut.com  "There are so many ideas in that video, and all I see in that video is my brain throbbing with ideas and I wish I had edited myself a little bit more."

    The pop singer had the music world waiting on pins and needles for the release of the "Telephone" video, which showed Beyoncé busting Gaga out of jail before they ultimately killed a diner full of people and dance among their corpses.


    According to Gaga, the problem wasn’t just the video, but the song itself. Something about it just rubs her the wrong way.


    "I hate ‘Telephone.’ Is that terrible to say? It’s the song I have the most difficult time listening to," she admitted to PopJustice.com. "The process of getting the production finished was very stressful for me. So when I say it’s my worst song, it has nothing to do with the song, just my emotional connection to it."
