Real Housewives of Atlanta

rhoa-phaedra-cynthia

I never thought that there would be a more agonizing Real Housewives divorce than the one between Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy, but Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida are giving them a run for their money. I have seen so many headlines confirming their divorce and then denying the divorce. It is beyond confusing. The latest (which is bound to change by the time you read this) is that they were divorced, but a judge nullified it.

Apollo is suspicious that Phaedra is concealing assets and that he was actually entitled to more than he was set to receive. It also feels weird to be talking about Apollo controlling properties and collateral from inside a jail cell, but I guess he’s looking to the future.

Kenya & Matt

It seems like the saga between Kenya Moore and Matt Jordan has been going on forever. Just when I thought we were done watching this whole thing play out on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the last episode left off with the former (?) couple arguing and Matt calling Kenya out for having sex with him in his truck…. allegedly. Still, Kenya is doing what she can to make it known that she is so done with that situation even if Matt is still appearing on episodes that were filmed months ago.

Kenya is no stranger to throwing shade on social media. She loves posting an inspirational quote aimed at an enemy or even just calling someone out directly, so it was pretty much expected her to post her side of the story after that last episode.

Jacqueline's demands

I always wonder what really happened when a Real Housewife says she is leaving a Real Housewives show “to pursue other opportunities” or some other vague statement about moving on. With some serious exceptions, I can’t imagine why anyone would quit a show with such a large platform, so I always find it tough to believe that any of these ladies leave of their own accord. Jacqueline Laurita came clean about why she will not be back on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

As a viewer, I am honestly not a fan of Jacqueline’s, but as a self-proclaimed reality TV expert, I feel like this show needs her around to provide opposition and controversy. Sure, I could do without the popcorn promotion and the plastic surgery testimonials, but without Jacqueline we are left watching a bunch of people who get along going on local trips and cooking Sunday dinners. Even the biggest Jacqueline haters have to admit that she does have a vital role on this show. Or at the very least she needs to be replaced with someone who has just as much (if not) more drama with the rest of the cast.

There have been so many stories about the possibility of original cast members NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak returning to Real Housewives of Atlanta. I just want this to happen and I’m so over this “Will they? Or won’t they?” speculation. Just give us an answer and stop toying with my emotions!

Since the current Real Housewives of Atlanta season is still airing, I doubt we will hear anything official about next season’s cast for a while. Still, it’s the one topic that comes up in every interview with NeNe and Kim. NeNe was recently asked how she would feel if Kim was offered more money for her RHOA return.

It seems like there is a Kandi Burruss-centered story line in every episode of this Real Housewives of Atlanta season. She has been on the show since season two, but this is the first one where Kandi is really taking a lot of heat. It started with the demise of her friendship with Phaedra Parks and it has continued with Porsha Williams accusing her of attempted drugging and having a sex dungeon. Now Phaedra is involved in a lawsuit against Kandi and she did not see it coming… until she watched the latest episodes.

Kandi explained her reaction to those scenes with Phaedra and her former employee Johnny during an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. She shares her reaction to the sad drama that went down with Sheree Whitfield and Bob Whitfield in Hawaii. She also talked about the possibility of renewing her friendship with Kim Zolciak in the future.

Kenya & Matt

Well last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta certainly contained some baggage! And not all of it was Cargo By Cynthia Bailey. At least no one lost their bags in Maui (only their marbles).

After conquering LA with her Cargo collection, Cynthia is ready to take on Atlanta – America’s fashion mecca. Let’s be honest though, the real person Cynthia needs to impress is Sheree Whitfield. THE elegant and sophisticated fashion pioneer behind the infamous and influential She By Sheree. Big leagues!

Kairo has modeling dreams so as a favor to build his portfolio Cynthia asked him to walk in her show. Kairo dead-eye shuffles like he’s auditioning for The Walking Dead and is carrying his former human life in that mock-croc backpack. Sheree is the only one impressed, and she’s the only one unimpressed that Kairo’s only compensation is a measly bag. Even though most of the models aren’t even getting that.

Apollo Nida engaged

So wait – Phaedra Parks isn’t divorced after all?! Not according to an Atlanta judge who decided to reverse her divorce from Apollo Nida based on technicalities.

As always with Real Housewives Of Atlanta, the details are eternally confusing. Last year Phaedra’s dissolution of marriage was signed off by a judge, but despite the fact that he’s in prison and engaged to another woman, Apollo contested the divorce by saying he never saw nor signed papers, and that his name was intentionally spelled incorrectly. It’s listed as “Apollo Nita” on the legal documents.

Well the new judge agreed with Apollo!

Pheadra Parks

I knew the peace between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore was too good to be true. I enjoyed watching them get along this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I just didn’t think it was going to happen on the group trip to Hawaii. They seemed to be on good terms – until Kenya threw that divorce party in her honor.

I see both sides on this one. Kenya was just trying to encourage optimism and growth during a tough transitional period. Still, I understand why Phaedra would not want to “celebrate” the end of her marriage and co-parenting with an ex-husband who is in prison.
