Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband? Despite the real issues at stake (so Cynthia claims), the drama surrounding the couple’s relationship sometimes come off as manufactured at best, and boring at worst.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s resident caflama queen, Kenya Moore, managed to win the hearts of many of the show’s fans, instead of getting their ire up in her usual fashion, after seeing her go through a heart wrenching scene on Sunday’s episode. Kenya attempted to once again reconnect with the woman who gave birth to her but instead faced rejection in the cruelest way. Instead of opening the door to her daughter, Kenya’s mother, Patricia Moore, who was allegedly home, ignored her and did not let her in. The rejection resulted in a tear-jerking moment for many who watched the drama unfold. Kenya decided to share with her fans via Instagram, the pain of being a motherless child by allowing them to glimpse 42 pages of a memoir she has penned.
In the five-chapter excerpt, Kenya takes her fans along a journey that is ridden with angst and tears. Readers get to understand the inner workings of her complex family dynamic, as well as the intricate non-existent relationship with her mother. In anInstagrammessage to her fans, Kenya explains about the upcoming literary work:
The love shared by Real Housewives of Atlanta’s sisters Lauren Williams (pictured left) and Porsha Williams (pictured right) is real and not even a heated argument regarding a touchy subject could separate them. Well on last night’s RHOA, the women duked it our verbally because Porsha felt her sister was shirking her ‘ride or die’ executive assistant responsibilities due to her pregnancy. The conversation got heated with Porsha condescendingly reminding Lauren of her duties, punctuating her role as her helper, and admitting she was not concerned with what her younger sibling had cooking in her “stomach.” Even though the ladies hugged it out eventually, Lauren, felt compelled to take to Instagram to defend her sibling’s rather callous actions on the show.
“My sister Porsha is my partner, my BFF, my favorite MUA, my drinking/party buddy & my 2nd mom. Sometimes we fight and yell, kiss and hug, talk all night, laugh and cry. There is no other person that I would want to have by my side. We’ve had many amazing years of working, succeeding, failing, laughing, crying, and traveling. I’m going to miss the 4am mornings in different cities, states and countries! I’m going to miss the long press days kinda….. Lol but I’ll never be too far. I love my sister beyond words and my new plus one is so blessed to have Auntie Porsha. We’re sisters, we’re best friends, we will get over ANYTHING we go through. Enjoy the show!!! xx”
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta complicated relationships were confronted with some surprising results. Most upsetting was watching Kenya Moore be rejected by her mother Patricia. It was as unnerving as watching Carrie, you just knew was was gonna happen, you felt it – the impending cruelty and betrayal, but you kept hoping you were wrong.
Kandi Burruss is baby shopping with Mama Joyce who suddenly loves everyone – even Todd! Even Phaedra Parks! Now Mama Joyce wants to be a “granny with a nanny” and put a nursery for Ace at her house, so she can be very involved. Mama Joyce is always up to something… I don’t trust that lady as far as I could throw her. Kandi seems dubious as well, but she knows better than to poke a tiger!
Mama Joyce has decided Kandi and Phaedra need to fix their friendship, so she volunteers to pay Phaedra a little a visit. Kandi doesn’t think it’s a good idea and nervously laughs off the suggestion.
Andy asks Sheree if she felt threatened. “I did not feel threatened at all,” she insists. “I don’t think any of us really felt threatened. Actually, they [Glen and Kenya] were going back and forth in a playful banter, almost like flirty for a little while, so it was really weird.”
I’m going to admit something to y’all that I’ve kept a secret. After Porsha Williams’ altercation with Kenya Moore at the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s reunion a few seasons back, I’d soured on the Georgia peaches. I took a break, and I’m not going to lie, I didn’t miss them.
However, when I heard the news that Kim Fields was joining the cast AND Sheree Whitfield would be back, I had to check it out…you know, for work. Since the first episode of this season, I have been hooked yet again. I don’t even miss NeNe Leakes! The drama has been insane, and I am still trying to figure out which women are true friends and who is throwing enough shade to fund an umbrella factory.
In what appeared to be an overwhelming heartfelt moment of intense joy, coupled with sadness, Todd posted the following statement that accompanied his picture: “Me and my little man!!! I wish my mom could be here to meet him. She would be so happy and proud of Kandi and I!!! God is good!!! All the time!!!”
