'Real Housewives' Round-up: Knockoffs, Travel Plans, and Dr Tiy-E's Secret
Here's all the latest on The Real Housewives, and some of the not-so-Real Housewives.

TLC Orders a Limited Run of Bama Belles
Most notable for being a Real Housewives of Atlanta knockoff, Bama Belles is a docu-series that will air on TLC and follow the lives of five women in Alabama. Yes, that's what Bama means. The women range in age between 24 and 39 and the cast includes a radio personality/real estate developer, an ex-beauty queen, an Army reservist, and an internet entrepreneur. The fifth woman has an even less interesting job, apparently. Is ex-beauty queen a job?

If what TLC has produced in the past is any indication, we'll stick with our Real Housewives and stay away from Bama Belles, thank you. If it doesn't have NeNe, it's not worth watching! [Film.com]

The Real Housewives of New York Are Going to Morocco
It looks like the Real Housewives of New York are emulating Sex and the City 2 and taking a trip to Morocco for their fourth season. While Bethenny was off ice-skating, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps arrived separately at JFK Airport on Thursday, followed by Alex McCord, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and new Housewife Cindy Barshop. 

What do you think they're doing in Morocco? I didn't even understand why the women of Sex and the City went. [Radar Online]

SPOILER! What's Up with Dr. Tiy-E?
The previews for the next episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta show that NeNe recognizes Sheree's "love doctor" from somewhere, "and not in a good way." Well, a simple Google search yields that Dr. Tiy-E Muhammad is not a doctor at all.

In fact, he is not licensed to practice psychology in Georgia or anywhere else. The former associate professor of psychology at Clark Atlanta is just a run-of-the-mill fame whore, having appeared on The Ricki Lake Show (Go Ricki! Go Ricki!) and the TBS show The Real Giligan's Island. Gross! Do you remember that atrocity? It featured two of each character and was just ... sad. Watch the opening theme for Tiy-E, who appears as one of the "professors."  [Starcasm]

Better luck next time, Sheree! I don't know about you guys, but I always thought there was something a little creepy and insincere about Dr. Tiy-E, plus he's totally wrong for Sheree. Plus, I have a feeling there's a lot more to him that NeNe has yet to reveal!
