Finally we have some answers about what is up with Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Like where the hell are the first ladies of peaches. I had assumed Phaedra Parks trapped them in some Southern Belle Training Camp, but alas the beans have been spilled on where they are and why NeNe Leakesskipped the trip!
Rumors were swirling that amid some cryptic tweets about sinking ships, NeNe had quit RHOA mid-season and was not invited on the last-minute cast trip to celebrate Phaedra’s birthday. I assumed NeNe was skipping to prepare for her role in Broadway’s Cinderella, but it was revealed that health reasons caused NeNe to skip the trip. Specifically blood clots that warn against long flights.
There is a great mystery surrounding Real Housewives Of Atlanta – who are somewhere lost in the world – as they traveled on a jet plane for over 20 hours to get to a mysterious tropical location! Is it Bali? Thailand? South Korea?!
RHOA supposedly wrapped filming – Bravo already released the season 7 trailer – but with the Phaedra/Apollo drama escalating and Phaedra filing for divorce, cameras have resumed rolling. And they’re capturing a Phaedra Gets Her Groove Back vacation where all the ladies ostensibly come together to support the ‘New Phaedra’. Except for “Most Supportive” NeNe. Of course, NeNe has an excuse – she’s about to be on Broadway.
No one knows for sure where they are, but the girls left on Phaedra’s birthday, it’s definitely somewhere tropical and it definitely includes Tropical Storm Krayonce. Yes, even Kenya Moore is there! Several different sources have theories about the current whereabouts of our Ladies Atlanta who could be anywhere from South Korea to Bali! Let’s discuss.
“A lot of things will come to light that I feel will be redemptive for me,” Kenya says. “I’m just excited for people to not question the lies that were told by many people on the show, and now we’ll all get to see what the real truth is.” Hmmm… what lies do you think she is talking about? Do you think it has to do with Apollo Nida?
Speaking of which, Kenya explains that it was never her intent to go after someone’s man. Then why was she texting or flirting with someone’s man? Just to be clear: I think Apollo is far more responsible for maintaining the integrity of his marriage than Kenya, but still – she knew the man was married!
Update 3: Kenya Moore came through! She not only posed with the check, but she really sent it! DPSF shared on their website that she did indeed donate $20,000! No word on NeNe Leakes matching the $20K, but we doubt she’ll want to be bested by Kenya, so I think it’s hopeful that she’ll come through! P.S. Our own GoFundMe total raised is almost up to $1500!
Update 2: We’re stalled out at $1081 right now, but slow and steady wins the race, right?
Update: We’re standing still around $861 right now! It’s a far cry from $40,000, but when you consider that my hope was to raise at least $5, we’re doing great!! We appreciate that you guys are still sharing it on Twitter and Facebook! Every little bit will help the foundation!
Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta may remember during this season’s reunion show (part 3), there was a $20,000 charity challenge issued. One star promised to donate $20,000 to the charity of the other star’s choice, so long as the other star sent her check first. The charity chosen on the reunion show was the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. It sounded like a grand gesture that would put their previous fundraiser event ‘misunderstanding’ to rest once and for all.
Fast forward to months later when the reunion aired and, after media outlets inquired with DPSF, the organization confirmed that neither star had yet sent their promised $20,000 check to the worthy cause. The stars tried to get out on a technicality, claiming they’d send their donation check only when the other mailed hers (and one even claimed to not remember it all). As a fan of the show and of genuine charitable giving, this didn’t sit well and it has bothered us ever since. We reached out to DPSF this week and they confirmed the status of the checks as still “not received.” So, we want to do something about it.
Clearly this has been brewing — I mean we all saw the reunion! — for awhile, but the current trouble started when Kenya claimed during an interview with Enstars that she had no thoughts about Porsha’s recent demotion on the hit Bravo reality series. Really, Kenya? No comment at all?
When a caller asked for Tamar‘s opinion on Kenya‘s music, she shared, “She sings? No shade! I think I heard [Gone with the Wind Fabulous] in the club one time. I didn’t know it was a serious record. No shade. Well, I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. Something about the thirst of it all. She’s a pretty girl. It’s just, like, the pageant thing kind of reeks.” Tamar admitted that NeNe Leakes is her girl.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s social media accounts for a reaction. And Kenya delivered!
The ladies — who once entered into a friendship contract — saw their friendship begin to fracture at the end of last season when NeNe and Cynthia’s husband had words at a charity function. (Because isn’t a charity function where everyone should settle their beef?)
But this season the ladies are officially enemies. In a preview, you can even see Cynthia burning the friendship contract! So just what does NeNe have to say about the status of their friendship now?
