Last night we met Kenya's dad, who is just as strongly opinionated as she is. She defends his outspoken way, "I was excited to see my dad as I hadn’t seen him in years. My dad always speaks HIS truth. Sometimes it can be off-putting, polarizing, and misunderstood but underneath it all has a heart of gold and would do anything for his family. Sound familiar?".
Kenya also claims she can dish out shade and take it, too. She also defends her new car, "Oh and yes, I can take their [NeNe & Cynthia] jokes and their shade they throw out at me — it works both ways. Note to Cynthia, last I checked a brand new Bentley GTC is a $225,000 car so that must be a lot of ass…DVDs to sell! LOL! I’m blessed to have a dream car in my driveway and regardless of how or by whom it was purchased, I’m proud and blessed that I am self-made and can afford to drive whatever I please and my name is on the title."
Phaedra Parks is still reeling over Chuck-gate. Lest you forget he accused her of being a member of the Big Homie Team. As it turns out the only thing big about Chuck is his forehead and his ego. He's actually more like a little homie, or as Phaedra tells Kandi Burruss: "bitesized brownies and a cocktail sausage." Ouch.
Kandi is shocked that Chuck would classify their relationship so falsely, I'm shocked her chunky little dog is eating Pringles. Seriously – what adult purchases Pringles? Phaedra wonders if Kandi's dog needs a Colt 45 to go with his "ghetto" snack. She also calls Chuck a pig. Because he is one.
Porsha recently admitted that not only is she dating but she's found someone special. Of course the new man is not just some ordinary random, Porsha reveals that because he's "well known" she's keeping her name – and the relationship – under wraps for now!
“There’s someone that I think is very special. He’s kind of standing out of the pack right now, so we’ll see how that turns out,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star told Radar Online.
Kandi called out Chuck's revisionist history (or straight up lies) and explains that being on Chuck's team, was um… no big thing.
First Kandiwrote on Facebook, "What’s so interesting to me is that…. speaking of last night's episode, is for Chuck to try to play me like we were never were in a relationship… and to know how close he and my mama was… Still for years after we broke-up, he was still calling my mama seeing what’s going on."
NeNe calls B.S. on the whole thing, "Please show me where in this episode I acknowledge that I knew her back in my Athens days. I'm still waiting. You haven't found it yet? It doesn’t exist!"
She continued, "Let me remind you once again, I don't practice lying, and in this case there's no need for it. What would I get out of saying I didn't know her if I did know her? Here's the story for hopefully the last time. Chuck, Phaedra, and I are all from Athens, Georgia. Did I know Phaedra when I was in high school, NO! I say clearly on this episode that I am the class of ‘85. Chuck says he's the class of ‘88 and the innocent Phaedra is the class of ‘89. Think about high school! It's generally 9th grade through 12th grade. When I was a senior in high school that means Chuck was a freshman, right? Phaedra would have been in 8th grade at that time, right? I left Athens at 18-years-old. I have lived in Atlanta longer than I have lived anywhere."
Kenya Moore and her desperate to get screentime frienemy Miss Lawrence meet for lunch to gossip about Sav-AWN-a, as pronounced wrong by Krayonce. Kenya reveals that apparently everyone in Atlanta, or at least everyone one in Atlanta that is also on RHOA, has slept with Chuck Smith.
Kenya giggles that Chuck didn't want to put a ring on "jumpoff" Phaedra Parks, because naturally the only reason a man wouldn't want to marry a woman is because she's a jumpoff. Not because people date but don't always fall in love and then they move on. Six proposals, one hired boyfriend, and a Nigerian prince she met on gmail later, Krayonce doesn't seem to understand the behaviors of a normal relationship.
Speaking of Chuck, he invited Phaedra and NeNe Leakes to Athens to propose that they all speak at the Boys & Girls Club there because Chuck is very involved. NeNe now knows Phaedra from growing up. Phaedra reminds us Athens is a one-horse, or one Dairy Queen town, with two high schools and everyone knows of everyone, just in case NeNe forgot.
Mama Joyce has certainly been letting her crazy, spiteful, and angry flag fly this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But now she's claiming that it's totally not her fault as editing is making her look deranged. Um… I'd like to consult Carmon on this one!
Joyce also says she is so upset that she may never return to RHOA! Not only does Joyce blame the editors, she also blames Carmon for setting the stage for her flip outs.
Considering her daughter KandiBurrusshas admitted several times that family tension is seriously compromising her wedding plans, Mama Joyce's claims that Bravo manipulated her screen time to make her look like the future mother-in-law from hell doesn't exactly hold water with me, but that's what she claims.
“I know Kandi had a decorator, her friend Carmon – and she put up all those pictures of Todd when he was a little boy," Joycetells Radar Online. "When they showed the scene of me walking into the house and seeing all the pictures of Todd on the wall I was not talking about his pictures!”
