Let’s be honest – the only thing any of us remember from last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta is that Apollo Nida‘s prison fiancé Sherien Almufti appeared at the opening of the OLG Restaurant – and she’s everything a villainess side-chick should be. The worst (or maybe best) is that Phaedra Parks conveniently wasn’t even there to see her!
But first all the drama that came before.Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker – two control-freaks don’t make a restaurant! The OLG Restaurant is weeks away from officially opening and $100,000 over-budget, but Todd will not accept any help. He is the little man that could … and with his big forehead he thinks he can sneak traffic cone orange chairs right under Kandi’s nose. She is not impressed by his Todd: Party Of One attitude.
Case in point, Todd refuses to allow Don Juan or Carmon to help make decisions, even though there are no uniforms and the logo hasn’t been finalized with less than 24 hours before their soft opening for friends, family and television cameras. And don’t even get Kandi started on how the floor is so dusty it looks like it belongs inside Chateau Sheree!
The demise of Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks’s friendship is way more drastic than any of the romantic breakups I’ve seen in the Real Housewives franchise. These two went from being genuine besties to all out enemies with no boundaries when it comes to revealing private information or exacting revenge. So at this point, I’m not shocked that Phaedra met with Kandi’s former employee about a lawsuit against her.
Sure, Phaedra did turn over the case to another attorney, but she did film with the dude multiple times. It just seemed like filming those scenes was the reality TV version of posting a subtweet – the whole thing seemed so calculated and beyond passive aggressive. So obviously Kandi had a lot to say after watching the episode back.
It looks like Kenya Moore is going to have the last laugh in this situation. No matter how much Sheree Whitfield fronts about the baseboards in Chateau Sheree, no decorative feature is going to cover up the fact that there are well-documented financial issues surrounding the house.
Even though she (somehow) gets away with never addressing her financial situation on the show, Sheree is in (even more) trouble these days when it comes to financing her home – that she may or may not actually live in. She is “reportedly” facing $350,000 in tax liens.
A lot of people hate on Kenya Moore and I totally get it. She’s caused a lot of controversy on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but even her biggest haters have to feel some sympathy watching her tumultuous relationship with Matt Jordan play out this season. Kenya herself has admitted that she’s “ashamed” of her inability to break away from the toxic interaction.
Kenya opened up about watching that stairwell confession where Matt called her out for (allegedly) having sex with him in his truck (which she didn’t address, obviously). And on a lighter note, Kenya had nothing but praise for Cynthia Bailey and Sheree Whitfield’s kids after they walked the runway in the Cargo fashion show.
It seems like she has truly hit her breaking point since Kenya filed for a restraining order against Matt. After all of the public fights, social media shade, and makeups, it might actually be over between these two once and for all.
The only teeny tiny thorn in Cynthia‘s side is Sheree Whitfield channeling her inner Kris Jenner as the momager for her son Kairo Whitfield‘s modeling career. Cynthia generously gave Kairo the opportunity to walk the runway in the first fashion show for her Cargo line of bags and Sheree doesn’t seem the least bit grateful for the exposure. All the momager is focused on is asking for compensation. But then again, those baseboards at Chateau Sheree won’t pay for themselves.
Porsha traveled with friends and her sister Lauren, maybe because she needs an anger management accountability partner again in case she beats-down one of her friends, to Jamaica where they experienced the beautiful beaches and other splendid scenery. It was a girls-only trip, by the way! Of course Porsha also showed off her classy swimsuit collection. Cause Go naked, y’all!
You can see photos and videos of Porsha’s vacation below.
Personally, I thought Kairo had a good edit. He delivered on the runway and he seemed to be very cooperative, but Sheree still feels like she needs to set the record straight when it comes to her son’s tardiness.
