Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kenya Moore lived in the hot seat this reunion as she got it from all the ladies (even Andy Cohen!), so that must explain why she was constantly fanning herself. Reunions By Krayonce!
This whole reunion could be photo-capped with the fantastic facial expressions of both Phaedra Parks and Krayonce. Everybody knows a picture is worth 1000 words. Both ladies threw shade at each other up one side and down the other, but Phaedra and her legalese definitely trumped Miss WHO-S-A. Sorry!
Kenya brought two accessories besides a full arsenal of nonsense: a fan and illusion netting. Illusion netting!
Girl was also shades of radioactive orange not found in nature that only seemed to glow more and more ominously as the snark got heaped on her in spades. Kenya was twisting like a tornado trying to twirl her way out of the insults. As Phaedra pointed out, that fan was a weak defense and she better have something stronger if she wants to battle!
Our Lady of Polyester Hairtells In Touch Weekly that her friendship with NeNe is amazing. Their relationship is even “better off camera than it is on. We're in a really good place."
“We didn't really spend the time to communicate during the show," theReal Housewives of Atlantastar shares. “Finally we realized there is really a lot of ‘he said-she said’ stuff.” At the recent Bravo Upfronts, witnesses report that Kim was anxiously awaiting NeNe's arrival so they could hang out.
Wigs & Cigs even goes so far as to compare their friendship to a marriage! “I think the reunion was kind of a turning point,” Kim gushes “Also me leaving the show. It's like being married, right? You kind of start to take your partner for granted after twenty years. I think that was how NeNe and I kind of were.”
All the nonsense allegedly started when Johnny and his wife Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis (possibly conspiring with Teresa Giudice and Kim according Melissa to some sources) threatened to bring Melissa Gorga's ex-boyfriend to the salon. Then Johnny allegedly made comments about Jacqueline's son Nicholas. In a new interview Johnny denies all involvement – and he blames producers for setting him up!
“I was ambushed and attacked,” Johnnytold NorthJersey.com. As a result of the brawl Johnny suffered a broken nose, bruises, lumps and head trauma. He also says he was hit in the head and still has “a mark on my forehead from a stiletto heel.” Our source,Tom Murro, tells us Jaquelineyanked off her shoes during the brawl and was slapping Johnny in the head (with her hand)!
Alexis Bellino revealed that she and Jim have purchased yet another fabulous pad. The Real Housewives of Orange County gave Bravo a tour of the newest digs and went into detail about all the rare artifacts their home has. Rare means like rich.
Starting with the kitchen Alexis regales us with the tale of rare stone that makes up her island. She doesn't know what kind – we'll have to ask Jim. I'm guessing it's the kind he hauled out of the rock quarry on his four-wheeler. Another fabulous feature, the enormous chef's stove which Alexis needs cause she cooks "90% of the meals." She's the mom she reminds us.
Apparently the other female passenger "mistakenly" assumed Kim and Kroy tried to join the mile-high club in the bathroom and the woman decided a little mid-flight ménage à trois might be fun so she tried to join the party.
We haven't met her yet, but Lydia McLaughlin will appear on the show next week as the fabulously rich Christian business woman and mother who is all Alexis Bellino wishes she could be. Shockingly Lydia is actually a friend of Alexis' and joined the show in part through that relationship. Well that just blows the lid of Heather Dubrow's theory that Alexis is searingly jealous of her lifestyle, amirite.
Lydia recently did an interview with U-T San Diego where she talked her decision to join the show, who she didn't really like, and what we can expect from her this season.
