NeNe Leakes’ former BFF, Marlo Hampton has quite the criminal history!
Kenya Moore had a rough welcome to The Real Housewives of Atlanta last season, and even though we thought she mellowed out a bit and seemed to find her way at the start of Season 6, her co-stars see things differently.
NeNe Leakes has made no secret of the fact that she and Kenya are currently on very bad terms, and even though Kenya and Porsha Stewart bonded in Savannah when they were the only two ladies brave enough to kill the flying cockroach that interrupted the housewives’ gourmet meal, Porsha recently revealed on Bethenny that the two are “not really” friends.

I guess there’s only one star in the Obama family because President Obama’s brother by half just lost his bid for political office in Kenya. He was running for governor of Kenya’s Siaya County but that coat tail was not to be…
President Barack Obama’s half-brother, Abong’o Malik Obama, won’t be the second member of his family to launch a political career. Mr. Obama was defeated in his bid to be governor of Kenya’s Siaya County this week by what seems to have been a very large margin. Mr. Obama is the eldest child of President Obama’s father. They have different mothers. Mr. Obama served as the best man at the president’s wedding to Michelle Obama in 1992. According to the Daily Nation newspaper in Nairobi, the Siaya gubernatorial race was won by Cornel Rasanga with William Oduol coming in second. The Daily Nation did not report Mr. Obama totals, however the Kenyan Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, which oversaw the elections and has been releasing sporadically updated results since Kenyans headed to the polls Monday, published a partial count that showed him in third place with just a little over one percent of the initial vote. Three other candidates trailed behind Mr. Obama. A call from Politicker to the IEBC Election Hotline this morning to inquire about the full count for the Siaya gubernatorial election went unanswered.

President Barack Obama’s brother who resides in Kenya, just got married to a woman more than three decades younger than him! Only time will tell if the relationship lasts between Malik Obama, 52 and his teen-wife, but even if it doesn’t work out, Obama has a backup plan, as he already has two other wives! Apparently polygamy is legal in Kenya and Obama, who is Muslim, has taken full advantage of it.
The new bride’s mother, Mary Aoko Ouma, is outraged over the union because her daughter dropped out of high school to marry Obama. Mom also said the newlyweds have been engaged for years, matter of fact Obama tried to marry the gal when she was only 17, however, her mom forbid it.
I guess it’s only a matter of time before this hot mess turns into a reality show.
MediaTakeOut.com is reporting President Obama’s Brother “George” was arrested on pot charges last night in Kenya.
The brothers are said to have the same father but but have spent little time together.
