I remember Cynthia Bailey hosting a random pageant through her modeling agency on Real Housewives of Atlanta a few seasons back. It wasn’t the smoothest event, but it did make for good TV. Nevertheless, someone thought that Cynthia had enough experience and insight to judge the Miss Universe pageant in the Philippines. Luckily for her fans and pageant enthusiasts, she shared plenty of photos from her judging experience.
I’m just wondering how former Miss USA Kenya Moore feels about her RHOAco-star being chosen to judge this year and not her. Well, at least Kenya got to check out Cynthia’s pics just like the rest of us.
We never see Phaedra being lewd in that way, especially with gross sexual hand gestures. So why was she acting “so out of character.” Kandi claims that actually is the real Phaedra and that she, Porsha, and Sheree Whitfield were under the impression that the cameras weren’t rolling during that conversation. How would seasoned reality TV stars not know that they were being filming for their own show? Kandi explained exactly how that works and that it justifies the scandalous gossip that we all got to watch this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It doesn’t matter that the very thought of latrines and paper plates nearly drove everyone to blows over dinner, Phaedra Parks has decided “roughing it” on a glamping trip is just what the group needs to work through their issues. And if not, she’ll put them on toilet digging duty or have them get lost in the woods. Unfortunately, Porsha has been avoiding Phaedra since dinner, over her possible allegiance to Kenya. So, Phaedra decides the thing to do is meet Kenya on mutual territory to discuss how an anger management conversation got so, well, angry.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is messier than Bob Whitfield’s attempts at dancing and smoothie making, and we’re sure to see more of the drama on tonight’s new episode. Friendships are tested and tea is being spilled left and right. However, were any of these friendships actually genuine in the first place? If you’d asked me a few years ago, I would have predicted that Kandi Burrus and Phaedra Parks’ pairing would stand the test of time. They truly seemed to enjoy each other and have fun together.
Of course, we all know how that relationship has progressed! Thanks to all the not so subtle shade and Phaedra’s new alliance with Porsha Williams, the rift between Kandi and Phaedra seems to be widening…and Kandi wants fans to know she’s done staying quiet about it.
The last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was a big one for Phaedra Parks. We saw her getting along with former nemesis Kenya Moore to give back to the kids in Flint, Michigan. As moving as it was to watch these two genuinely making a difference, the viewers were brought back to reality when Porsha Williams and her anger issues took center stage at a group dinner.
It’s pretty ironic that Phaedra’s bestie was the one in the middle of the controversy during an episode that should have been a happy one about Phaedra’s philanthropy. SMH, Porsha. All Phaedra wanted to do was gather the women to plan a camping trip and then shit really went awry.
In her blog, Cynthia celebrates her move to the lake house and wonders why things got “so dramatic” at Phaedra Parks’ dinner. Cynthia begins by discussing her time as Kandi Burruss’ house guest: “I had a really fun time staying with Kandi. Although she didn’t seem that happy to see me when me (and my Fruit Loops) first I arrived at her house, we ended up having the best time. We spent hours laughing, talking, and watching movies.”
To be honest, it’s hard to tell when Porsha Williams is reaching for a story line on Real Housewives of Atlanta and when her drama on the show is actually genuine. I guess that’s actually tough to figure out with pretty much every reality show, but it honestly did seem pretty random for Porsha to want a baby with her former flame, but she had no desire to actually date him. However, Porsha says she’s serious about wanting to be a single mother and on another note, she really wants her BFF Phaedra Parks to go from being a single mom to a mother in a relationship.
Porsha talked about her desire for motherhood in an interview with Bravo.com. Porsha explained why she views being a single mom differently than most people might. She said, “I’ve made sure I have a great support system. I’ve worked very hard financially to secure a future for a child. It’s just something that I want now.”
