There is a crazy story on TMZ this afternoon that says that The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sApollo Nidawent AWOL and didn’t turn himself in this afternoon as planned. The story goes on to say that he forced himself into Phaedra Parks’ home and got into a spat with her over money and her refusal to bring the boys to visit him in prison. The story is reportedly false.
Police were called to Phaedra’s home this afternoon but were there for just a few minutes since it was just her faulty alarm system, not an altercation with Apollo. He has reported to prison as planned and has started his eight year sentence without incident, according to Tamara Tattles’ sources who witnessed him pulling into the gates at the prison in Lexington.
On this episode of Atlanta Exesthe women vacay in the Cayman Islands, bond over their similar experiences, and attempt to move forward with their lives.
The ladies meet for lunch at Amura Sushi Steak. Torrei has a male friend who says they can use his place in The Cayman Islands. Tameka Raymond wants to know if her friend is married. Where did that come from? Tameka doesn’t want to go to the Caymans because she has been there with her first husband. Sheree wants to swim with the dolphins. Tameka doesn’t want to. Torrei Hart wants to scuba dive. Tameka doesn’t want to do that either. No one is allowing Tameka’s negativity to put a damper on things they just let her be the Debbie Downer that she is and the show flows much better. Side Note: For people who don’t like each other, why are Tameka and Torrei always sitting right next to each other?
The ladies arrive to the white sands and blue waters of the Cayman Islands. Once at the house, with rum punch in hand, they begin the search for their bedrooms. Tameka says that the rooms have to face a certain way towards the looney bin. She also cannot sleep in a bunk bed. Torrei finds the master, but Tameka also has her eyes set on this room. Tameka settles on a room with double beds and everyone says how the room matches her because it is very “Zen.” Seriously???
On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Chyka Keebaugh has invited all the ladies to a much-needed beach getaway. Jackie Gillies and Lydia Schiavello kick things off with a shopping spree to stock up on zebra-patterned caftans from a nearby caftan specialty boutique (these exist). Lydia models a modest Grecian dress and a Jackie steps out in a teeny, tiny leopard-print mini spandex dress and aptly pokes fun at herself by saying she looks like “a stick with big tits”. Ha! Meanwhile, Lydia can only muster, “Oh Wow” (remember, she is just sooooo articulate) the entire time they shop.
Andrea Moss finishes up her packing, ensures her nanny has the 735-point checklist and off they go to airport where the group will be taking private helicopters to Queensland for their vacay. Surprise, surprise Gina Liano is late. Again. Janet Roach is about to cut a b*#%h if Gina doesn’t arrive in like 5 seconds. Gina rolls up (how many colbalt blue dresses can one have in their wardrobe anyway??!!) and is hoping everyone is chill for the trip.
Even if you can’t stand Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes, I recommend giving this episode of LeAnn and Eddie a shot. It features the couple taking a family vacation to Hawaii. Both sets of parents are really likable and the scenery is gorgeous. Just do your best to ignore the fake pregnancy storyline.
While the family is boarding a helicopter in Hawaii, we learn a little bit about the parents. Eddie’s parents have been married for over 40 years. LeAnn’s mom and stepfather, Ted, have been married for about 13 years. Leann says that she couldn’t ask for a better stepfather. From the minute the parents are in the picture, the show becomes ten times more entertaining. They all have strong personalities that are just hilarious.
