Kandi Burruss has been working on The Kandi Factory for what seems like ages. Her show will follow the singer/songwriter/reality star as she mentors up and coming artists who are recording their first single and creating their own music video. It seems very fitting. Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also getting her own show…and she's basically Atlanta's answer to Judge Judy. Also fitting.
Who should feel the need to weigh in on Phaedra's new series? Why it's none other than fomer (booted) Atlanta housewifeSheree Whitfield!
I know what y'all are watching on Bravo, that's for sure. The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta continue to break records in their fifth season…with all the drama there is a reason RHOA is the network's most watched show! Close your legs to married men, WIG!
The women of the Peach State are notorious for bringing the crazy both on and off screen, and we've watched several of them work their way up from practically nothing to be huge success stories. Of course, it goes both ways with some of the former ladies living far above their means. Whether they are decorating ginormous marble-ladden, diamond encrusted houses of tackiness, drafting friendship contracts or recording catchy songs (Gone with the Wind Fabulous, anyone?), the ladies of RHOA are totally addicting!
Kandi has the ability to make fun of herself and tell it like it is without being catty while throwing other people under the bus. It's no surprise that Kandi has a lot of opinions on her co-starKim Zolciakand the lawsuit brewing between them regarding Don't Be Tardy for the Party. However, Kandi is able to express her feelings without the cattiness that often rears its ugly head when stars are getting buzzed in the clubhouse.
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would say it was a little sweet and a little classy, but it wasn't. It was mostly a lotta ratchet.
See Kenya Moore threw the big end of the season party. And at Kenya's party she wants things her way – or the highway. Well, parking lot at least. Kenya decided her Atlanta "coming out" event would be an Iconic Black Women In Film gala. She assigned all the ladies of RHOA a character because there was to be some sort of performance associated with the role. The only performing I saw was a low-budget runway show in which they all waltzed up on stage did a couple hip pops and sat back down on a folding chair in the audience. Apparently that's how Krayonce defines a play though cause she was two shades of bent out of bootyshape about Porsha Stewart coming in the wrong costume.
I have to say that as I was watching a marathon Real Housewives of Atlanta on Friday, and it was odd to see the scenes of Porsha Stewart and husband Kordell seemingly happy when the news just broke that the couple was seeking a divorce. The former NFL quarterback filed papers last week claiming that the couple is now separated and their marriage is "irretrievably broken."
The pair were married in May of 2011, and rumors are now swirling that Porsha was straying too far from her role of traditional wife. When Porsha and Kordell met, she was a preacher at High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, Georgia. On RHOA, Porsha touts herself as a trophy wife.
We have certainly seen Real Housewives of Atalanta'sNeNe Leakes rise to stardom since she first appeared on the Bravo franchise. Of course, as NeNe's fame increased–and her shows multiplied–her marriage suffered. When she divorced long-time husband Gregg, many assumed that their relationship couldn't handle the pressure of NeNe's celebrity. Heck, her friendships certainly couldn't handle it…WIG!
Well, as we saw on this season's RHOA, Gregg and NeNe are working through their problems and planning a lavish second wedding. NeNe even reveals that former bestie/archnemesis Kim Zolciak will be invited to the big affair. Did I just see a pig fly by my window?
