Kyle Richards from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hosted the event at Cohen’s BFF Bruce Bozzi’s  restaurant and enlisted the aid of the OG Housewives Nene Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Ramona Singer from Real Housewives of New York and Vicky Guvalsen from Real Housewives of Orange County to get the women from their respective franchises there.

The Tea: According to the tattles at Tamara Tattles and her comment section snitches who have all the tea:

  • When the Real Housewives of Atlanta arrived, the place fell silent and everyone was stunned by their fabulousness;
  • John Mayer, who is Cohen’s buddy, was impressed with Leakes who kept everyone in stitches;
  • Cohen was surprised to see Phaedra Parks who he had fired there and who Leakes probably invited in a rumored attempt to keep the RHOA franchise amidst falling ratings
  • Beador was reportedly wasted
  • Grammar and Rinna had a little fight and Cohen went over to them and said save it for the Reunion show
  • Rinna was the life of the party and got everyone to dance on tables
  • Notably absent were Bethenny Frankel (who had a speaking engagement) and Countess LuAnn from RHONY; Monique Samuels from RHOP (who is a brand new mom); Lisa Vanderpump from RHOBH (who is rumored to be leaving and feuding with Richards); Kelly Dodd and Heather Dubrow from RHOOC; Tinsley Mortimer from RONY; Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss from RHOA (though she is on Celebrity Big Brother right now and Williams is heavily pregnant and maybe couldn’t get on a plane); Melissa Gorga of RHONJ
  • Marlo Hampton was not an original invited guest but came to surprise Cohen who picked her up and twirled her around when he saw her.
  • Ashley Darby from RHOP looked pregnant and having just peeped her Instagram, it looks true.
  • Leakes was caught on her phone amidst all the hoopla
  • Most got along.
  • Danielle Staub manipulated the media to get a last minute pity invite and showed up with a gift and glammed out…allegedly

About Rick Ross New Baby Boy, ‘Billion’ and Other Celeb Wealth Loving Ways

What’s more crazy interesting than celebrities who are so passionate about wealth that they show it off in their music videos are those that carry it over to their child-raising.

Case in point: Rick Ross and his girlfriend fitness model Briana Camille recently welcomed their a baby boy to the world and perhaps as a nod to their monetary goal in life, they named the little one: Billion

The “Green Gucci Suit” rapper, who’s expected to appear on the Creed II soundtrack, used his Twitter account to make the announcement:

“Let’s all welcome my son ‘Billion Leonard Roberts’ to the world 🌍… 🙏🏽,” he tweeted without revealing the baby’s mom. The newest arrival joins the world a little over a year after they welcomed daughter, Berkeley Hermes. Granted it is the name of a Roman God but I think he was thinking of the luxury brand. (ha!) Ross now has four children including his eldest daughter, and his first born son with ex Tia Kemp.

It’s not just names either.  Some celebrate impending arrivals with wealth-brand themes. For example, last weekend Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood stars  Lyrica Anderson and husband A1 celebrated the impending arrival of their baby boy with a Tiffany & Co– themed baby shower.

Actually, the Tiffany theme is quite common. All  you have to do is run a search for it in Pinterest where I got this photo below:

Celebs have even gone as far as name their babies after money itself.

Recall, a while ago, Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV wives Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak-Biermann feuded over what to name their future child. Each wanted to use the name Kash. Zolciak even went as far as get the name Kash Kade trademarked before the baby was even born.

Of course Cash is an authentic real name that is not connected to money. See director and producer and spouse of Jessica Alba, Cash Warren, for example. Also, Hawaii 5-O star Will Yun Lee and his wife Jennifer Lee named their son Cash.

I’m a firm believer in naming a baby whatever you please and makes you happy! Given most celeb babies will never have to worry about a name getting in the way of getting a job, why not name em “Billion”?

Happy baby naming!

Monica Brown and her family are usually on the top 5 list when it comes to Halloween costumes and so to no surprise her daughter Laiyah Brown‘s Edward Scissorhands is amazing@

 

No doubt Ayesha Curry as Snow White and her 4-month old son Canon as a Dwarf were the cutest!

Not a family costume but here is Marcus Scribner as Erik Killmonger, Tracee Ellis Ross as Nakia, and Anthony Anderson as T’Challa from Black Panther

Last week was a busy one for some of Bravo TV‘s expecting Real Housewives.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Shamea Morton and Kenya Moore donned their best sports Jerseys and Jordan sneakers to attend Todd Tucker’s Jordans and Jerseys birthday party in Atlanta.

Earlier in the week, the former Miss USA and another Atlanta power couple hit up fellow RHOA castmember Kandi BurrussOld Lady Gang  (“OLG”) restaurant she owns with her husband.

Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels sported a tiny bump in a glamorous blush sequined gown while attending and taping that franchise’s reunion show which was spent “reading” a lot of her fellow cast members according to her caption.

“Baby daddy just checking on the bump after all the reading I had to do,” the Not for Lazy Moms lifestyle blogger captioned a pic of her husband Chris Samuels cradling his wife’s bump mid taping.

Inside Toya Wright’s Gender Reveal Party

We usually blog about celebrity baby showers but Millenial parents are all about gender reveal parties.

Second-time mom-to-be Toya Wright had a gender reveal party early last month at her home but only recently shared the official event video.

Guests included a few of our Atlanta, Georgia-based Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alums: R&B singers and stage actress Monica Brown, Reality TV star of Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and biz mogul Kandi Burruss and her Xscape reunion tour band mate and fellow reality TV star Tameka “Tiny” Cottle Harris, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star Rasheeda.

The event was held indoors and outdoors poolside and from the looks of photos shared in social media, was quite an elegant tho low-key affair.

The actual gender reveal was an airplane flyover! How different and creative!!

“Issa Girl”! The banner trailing the tiny plane read to jubilant screams and shouts below.

Wright, who has starred in two reality TV shows about her life and is the author of a new book, shared the video on her Instagram.

She has not revealed who the dad is. She had a 18-year old daughter, Reginae Carter, who is a featured co-author of her new book, “You Just Don’t get It!”

She had the best reaction to the news as perfectly captured by the event photographer.

Carter’s dad is super famous Rapper Lil Wayne.

Super Bowl Showdown: Gisele Bundchen versus the ATL Divas

new-england-patriots

The big game is tomorrow evening. Who are you rooting for? The 4x Super Bowl champions New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons. I know for certain our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gisele Bundchen will be Team Patriots. After all, she is married to its longtime famed quarterback Tom Brady.

I’m not for certain, but I will take a guess that the scores of other celebs we’ve “bumpwatched” who live in the Atlanta area will be cheering for their home team.

Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Eudoxie Agnan, Ciara, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Rasheeda and Tamara Braxton-Herbert all hail from the ATL.

If you’re looking for inspiration gear, check out the curated collections below:

 

Kandi Burruss’ 1-Year Old has 300+K Instagram Followers and His Own Baby Products Line

kanditoddace

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss‘ son Ace Wells Tucker turned one yesterday and at that tender age, the young squire has over 300,000 followers on Instagram and a successful baby product line named for him, Raising Ace.

Burruss, who made millions penning chart-topping platinum hits for pops acts like TLC, Mariah Carey, P!nk, N’Sync, Destiny’s Child, Usher and Alicia Keys, is a sophisticated business mogul who runs a direct sales adult toy line called Bedroom Kandi, an online talk show, Kandi Coated Nights, her own record label and is working on opening up a restaurant in Atlanta with husband Todd Tucker, a freelance producer who met Burruss while working production for Bravo  TV.

It was a no-brainer to convert all those adoring fans of their infant son into potential buyers. The line focuses on three iconic animals; the panda bear who just like a baby eats and sleeps all day; the giraffe who with its long neck represents the growing baby into toddlerhood; and the fox who represents the transformation into a clever young child, the About page reads. “Building on this theme, the Raising Ace designs are represented in both iconic and illustrative vintage inspired forms throughout the collection,” it concludes.

about_animals

Because social good is always a great way to do biz, they promise to donate a percentage of the profits from sales to non-profit organizations that support single parents, parents struggling to get by, and organizations that promote parenting education. Todd Tucker, Kandi’s husband,  was raised by a single mom and has a daughter Kaela from a previous relationship who lives with him and his step daughter Riley, who Burruss raised as a single mom, herself.

Designer Mathieu Pung is the brains behind the high quality unisex children’s products with a unique design style. Items range from $5.99 to $39.99 and are of a modest and affordable price point for the cute designs and top quality product you receive. Good stuff! Go get it, Ace!

To celebrate his birthday, he offered his followers 20% off his line! Cute and marketing savvy!

For Ace’s birthday we giving 20% off of all #RaisingAce products! RaisingAce.com @shopraisingace
