First of all, Kim sounds … off in the beginning; slurry and inarticulate with a glazed expression in her eyes as if she’s reciting from a teleprompter. I don’t think she was – I think it was rehearsed and she was desperate to stay “on message” of denial.
In classic Kim fashion, she was hours late for her sit-down with Dr. Phil leaving him waiting for the interview to start while she fussed over her appearance. Kim denies procrastinating and insists she was ready the whole time, apologizes insincerely. More classic Kim. Dr. Phil is prepared for Kim’s “controlling” behaviors and calls her out throughout the entire segment.
Yolanda Foster continues to fight a disheartening battle against Lyme Disease all while trying to raise awareness about Chronic Lyme, which affects those long after doctors say they are cured. However, recently Yolanda may have taken a turn for the worse!
Seeking out alternative medicines and traveling the globe for treatments, Yolanda unfortunately does not seem to be getting better as she battles a particularly nasty bout of Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star recently shared a photo of her son Anwar carrying her in support. (Above)
Speaking out about Kim’s state of mind during the interview, Dr. Phil admits he’s concerned about her overall health and stability. The interview left no turn unturned as Kim was confronted about her toxic friendship to Brandi Glanville, whether or not reality TV is healthy for her, her relationship with Kyle Richards, and her constant denial about her own behavior – including blaming the police, the Beverly Hills Hotel, and RHOBH for her arrest!
Dr. Phil shares that Kim got “frustrated” with him throughout the interview because he wouldn’t let her standard behavior of accusations, threats, and excuses stand. “Addicts and alcoholics are great at deflecting, and I think she’s shown a lot of that behavior. I’m not real good at letting people do that… ,” he explained. “I didn’t let her wiggle, and think it was very frustrating for her.”
I don’t know about you but I consider this season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion to be basically an extension of last season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, albeit without anyone’s clip-in hair pieces being used to mop the stage floor.
Porsha Williams explains there “wasn’t a lot of screaming and yelling” during the reunion because the women just “wanted to be heard” and “clear up whatever the misunderstandings were” – although there also wasn’t a lot of progress made!
“People were definitely upset last year and lashed out with anger. This year I feel like people were very emotional. It was really similar to the therapy session,” Porsha describes. Although Porsha isn’t really in the business of clearing up any of her shade – in fact she stands by accusing Peter Thomas of cheating (why would she? No shade), and her refusal to apologize to Kenya Moore over last season’s fight.
Kim Richards quietly entered rehab over the weekend, just days after her arrest for public intoxication and her disastrous interview with Dr. Phil. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star checked herself into a private, live-in facility in Malibu where she can still be close to family and friends, but get the treatment she needs.
Sources say Kim made the decision to go to rehab after discussing it with her family, but she’s still in denial about the severity of her addiction. “If the arrest hadn’t happened she wouldn’t be going to rehab; it would be business as usual. She’s in denial that she has a problem,” a source informs People.
Before reading, please note we are deeply sensitive to Bruce’s desire to live his life as a woman, but for the sake of this article we’re using male pronouns.
In light of the interview airing, Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner has spoken-out about her marriage to Bruce and how they privately dealt with his desire to transition to a woman. Linda announces she never would have “dared” violated Bruce’s truth or his dignity by revealing his gender dysphoria before he did so himself.
NeNe Leakes has 99 problems… and they’re all her fault! Her problems include: wigs, friendships, successes, rejection of Claudia Jordan, saying what she said because she said it… NeNe’s refrain throughout the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, was “You’re right, I’m wrong.” Probably. No, it’s not NeNe who has a million problems – it’s RHOA… This was supposed to be the SEASON 7 reunion, but almost everything discussed was a SEASON 6 issue. Dejaview!
The only things different are Apollo is incarcerated and Claudia is lapping up everyone’s storyline dregs like she’s been through the dessert on a stallion booty with no name and it’s been good to get into the shade. In Atlanta no one can remember your name unless you try extra hard with the reads and the complaints!
Let’s talk outfits: Porsha Williams‘ was the worst – it looked like a cheap shower curtain. And that train! That girl and her issues with trains. #UndergroundRailroad.
Tonight the THREE-Part Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion begins – meaning the drama between NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss will finally explode! Actually it seems like the entire reunion is NeNe-central (sorry NoNeensters!) because as Kandi explains, “She had a break-through.”
“She was bringing up some things in her past that really struck a nerve with her. Like talking about things in her childhood.” says Kandi of NeNe’s sobbing meltdown. “It brought about a different emotion.”
Apparently NeNe’s meltdown was a bonding moment for the group as all the women comforted her. “It was better than last year’s [reunion]. There was no hair pulling, so I guess that was progress,” Kandi laughs. “But, how do you have all this arguing and then skip off?”
