REALITY DRAMA: Kandi Burruss Vs. Kim Zolciak VIEWER NUMBERS + Selita Ebanks’ New Post-Break Up Reality Show + Keyshia Cole’s EX-Hairstylist POPS OFF
BRAVO viewers seem more interested in Kim Zolciak than her frenemy Kandi Burruss, as Kandi failed to garner huge ratings for her reality spinoff. Find out how Kandi’s show did inside and get the deets on Selita Ebanks upcoming series and how Keyshia Cole got on her ex-hairstylist’s bad side.
Former "RHOA" co-stars Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak are preparing to battle both on TV and in the court of law. Armed with the masterful legal guns of Phaedra Parks (snickers), Kandi is suing Kim over money owed from the song she wrote "Don’t Be Tardy For The Party." That’s battle number one!
Their second battle is being fought on BRAVO as the Housewives are all known to be very competitive when it comes to ratings. And while the two haven’t battled in court yet, Kim seems to be winning the ratings war.
Last week, "The Kandi Factory" debuted to 671,000 viewers (which is disappointing for BRAVO). This week, the execs put Kandi’s show after the debut of Kim’s spinoff "Don’t Be Tardy" which had 1,157,000 it’s first half hour and 1,259,000 viewers its second half hour.
Though "The Kandi Factory" aired after Kim’s strong lead-in, she only gained about a 1,000 viewers when compared to her first week numbers. So reports state fans tuned on for Kim…and turned off for Kandi. Womp. America loves a blonde chick with no job who has a sugar daddy, a new husband and 4 kids.
And to make it even worse, 800,000 folks came back to BRAVO after The Kandi Factory went off the air so they could see "Watch What Happens Live" where Kim chatted it up with Andy Cohen!
Kandi may not win the ratings war, but we’re sure she and Pha Pha will win in court.
Also in reality tv news….
Selita Ebanks has revealed the working title for her new STYLE Network reality show, "Selita." Produced by 51 Minds the docu-series will follow the Victoria’s Secret model as she embarks on a new chapter in her life at the ripe old age of 30.
Now that’s she’s ended a two-year relationship with TV personality Terrence J, Selita will focus on expanding her brand beyond modeling and launch a clothing line. So far, no air date has been set. Good luck with this one…
In other reality drama….
The hairstylist who worked with Keyshia Cole on her BET "Family First" series is apparently pissed at her. Referring to her as "late", we were tipped off that she owes him money and isn’t returning his calls. He posted a series of pics on Instagram that describe his feelings towards the singer.
We guess Keyshia doesn’t pay for her weaves and extensions up front……
We hope the Lord answers his prayers and delivers a cash payment on Keyshia’s behalf. Good luck boo.

”We’ve Been Approached About That Several Times”
The Young Money brand is so strong–even their second tier acts are making major moves.
Or at least, YMCMB rapstress Shanell may have something major in the works. She told VIBE that she and her sister, D. Woods, may be making the big leap to reality TV.
“We’ve been approached about that several times,” she said. “I’ve tried to stay away from it but she’s open to it.”
“For me, it’s just about getting the right people to put it together,” she added. “A lot of reality TV has it pros and it’s cons. I just wanna make sure that when it comes to family we don’t have any wrong light shed on us.”
Bow down, Belgrade. Beyoncé pulled out all the stops during the kickoff to “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” in Belgrade, Serbia, on Monday. A sold-out crowd of 20,000 packed into the Kombank Arena to witness the first of 65 dates on her globe-trotting trek. There were plenty of show-stopping moments including costume changes, choreography, pyrotechnics, and hit after hit.
The 31-year-old pop icon stormed the stage in a white beaded dress to her anthem “Run the World (Girls),” marching into “End of Time” with her troop of dancers.
Queen B turned heads in a dazzling wardrobe designed by Emilio Pucci’s Peter Dundas, Dsquared2′s Dean and Dan Caten, and Ralph and Russo, with shoes by Stuart Weitzman. She strut across the stage in a gold sequined dress (complete with nipples) and flew over the audience in a shimmering blue bodysuit for “Love on Top” and “Irreplaceable.”
She didn’t debut any new material, pulling from her past four solo albums and one Destiny’s Child song (“Survivor”). The unforgettable evening closed with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and “Halo.”
“Thank ya’ll for being such a beautiful audience,” said B, who was presented with the Serbian flag. “I’ll never forget my first show. I’ll never forget all of these beautiful faces. I had such a good time tonight.”
The tour will travel throughout Europe in April and May before making its way to North America on June 28.
Check out more photos and video from B’s big night below.

Beyoncé’s is officially back at it. The superstar launched her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour in Belgrade, Serbia on Monday (April 15).
Rocking blue nails in honor of daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, Bey played to a huge crowd at the Kombank Arena. The 31-year-old played up her usual show-girl inspired looks with a shiny sequenced off-white ensemble and her ever-present opaque tights.
It’s not easy being queen.
The show is the first of a more than 60-date tour run, which will include headlining the Essence Music Festival and the BET experience over the summer. Bey is promoting her forthcoming fifth album and will be singing many of her old hits, but will probably throw in some new joints for the Stans. “Grown Woman,” the track played during her Pepsi commercial will likely be added to the set list.
Leading up to the show, the Houston native posted images from her tour rehearsal, as well as flicks from the actual concert.
Drizzy said “Girls Love Beyoncé,” but we have a feeling they’re not the only ones.
Check out the flicks below.

Earlier, a photo of Beyonce rehearsing for her upcoming "The Mrs. Carter Show" World Tour in Belgrade emerged on her Tumblr page.
The first shots of Beyonce and her new stage show, which kicked off tonight in Belgrade, surfaced online.
Clad in Stuart Weitzman shoes and costumes from Dean and Dan Caten (DSquared2), the H&M spokesmodel appeared to be in tip top shape strutting around the stage. Earlier, she praised Stuart Weitzman saying, “I have literally danced a thousand miles in his beautiful shoes.”
Beyonce has tour stops in Croatia, Slovakia and Holland before she gets to Paris on April 24th. We wonder if Kim and Kanye will visit her backstage?

In 2006, J5 announced they were parting ways after the release of Feedback. However, Friday night -seven years since the split- and to much surprise to their fans, J5 hit the stage at Coachella for a full on reunion show, thanks in part to J5′s manager, Rick Gonzalez (peep the full set up top). Cut Chemist told Billboard Coachella was the best platform to reignite the reunion, going on to state:
Coachella was a big regenerator of it all. We wanted something big to come out to. We couldn’t just start something up – it had to be centered around something big and Coachella came with an offer. It was a good thing to come back to because we did do the first one and Coachella is kind of family for us.
The group also plans on touring this year. Only time will tell if a new album comes into fruition.

Let me find out X is serious about a comeback. He needs to be focused on something productive because we all know what kind of back to back to back arrests go down when he’s not….

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are quickly approaching and there are still a few surprises in store.

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards air live Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and you can watch Flavor Flav’s red carpet interviews shortly after showtime on NextMovie.com.
