There have been some surprising cast shake-ups for the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha Williams has been downgraded to just being a “friend” of the Housewives, Demetria McKinney joins the ranks as a fellow Housewife “friend” and former Price Is Right Barker’s Beauty, Claudia Jordan joins the ladies as a full-time housewife.
And no one was more surprised by Claudia’s promotion to full-time housewife than Claudia herself.
Last month Apollo Nida began an 8 year prison stint and Phaedra Parks is finally breaking her silence in an exclusive sit-down with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Phaedra will reveal all about how her world came crumbling down!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star says that she was in the dark about Apollo’s life of crime due to her busy schedule. “I really didn’t [have any idea]… ” Phaedra sighed. “I work, I just got my fifth college degree. I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children,” Phaedra tells Ellen in an interview to air today.
“So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said ‘I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true,’” Phaedra says.

Here’s our photo of the day! Kenya Moore took to instagram tonight to show off her $20,000 check made out to Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya canceled a planned event to give the organization the money, but it looks like she does have the check ready to go. The Real Housewives of Atlantastar writes, “I’m proud to be able to give back and keep my promise to the Detroit public schools foundation to donate $20,000. Detroit is a resilient city and so am I. I will continue to shine despite the people who want to see me fail or try to turn my positivity in to negativity. See you soon Detroit! #igotyomoney #kenyalovesthekids #twirlsawayhaters.”
Hot on the heels of Phaedra Parks announcing that she’s divorcing herself from providing Apollo Nida with spousal immunity, a judge is ordering Phaedra to discuss her husband’s crimes in an upcoming deposition!
Phaedra has been embroiled in a lawsuit against a woman named Angela Stanton who self-published a book titled Lies Of A Real Housewife which alleged that Phaedra was the ring-leader in the original car racket scheme that got Apollo (and Angela) sent to federal prison. This is the first time Apollo went to prison, mind you.
A portion of Angela’s book was published in Vibe Magazine, despite the magazine issuing a disclaimer that there were no facts to back it up. Phaedra sued Vibe, Angela’s publishing company, and Angela, settling out of court with Vibe and dropping the suit against the publishing company – but Phaedra’s suit against Angela rages on.
Now the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is required to give additional deposition because according to Angela’s attorneys Phaedra doesn’t want to reveal what she may or may not have known about Apollo’s illegal activities!
Just when we were all rejoicing over Kenya Moore doing the right thing by finally making that $20,000 donation to Detroit Public Schools Foundation, she goes ahead and twirls a fast one on us by canceling a planned check presentation and postponing the donation!
Kenya was scheduled to attend an assembly at Cass Technical High School, her alma mater, held in honor of her donation this Friday, October 17th. According to Kenya a scheduling conflict with her family has forced her to postpone the event – which was also to be filmed by Real Housewives Of Atlanta!
Shannon Barr the VP of a public relations firm that works with Kenya(lord is that a company that has been working overtime given the state of Kenya’s behavior!) claims that Kenya still plans to make the donation to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation and says the cancellation “has nothing to do with the donation at all.”
Andy Cohen has done it again. After weeks of speculation ab0ut the reasoning behind the demotion of Porsha Williams from full-time housewife on the Real Housewives of Atlanta to “Friend of the Housewives,” the Housewives-head-honch0 gives us a complete definitive answer.
And, despite what you may have th0ught, it actually has nothing to do with her beat-down of costar Kenya Moore at last season’s reunion show.
NeNe Leakes has never been one to shy away from throwing a little shade. We can always count on the Real Housewives of Atlanta star to tell us exactly how it is. And in a new interview, NeNe tells us exactly who should and should not be her castmates and just how rich is this bitch?
“Some of the girls are not Georgia peaches and the show is called the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Georgia,” said NeNe, who, along with Phaedra Parks is from Athens, Georgia.
True point, but it is also called ‘Housewives’ when many of the girls are single……
Here’s a happy update for you! Kenya Mooreis finally making good on that promise to donate $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation! According to a new report she’s making an appearance on October 17th – with Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras in tow, of course – and finally donating the cash. Better late than never!
Kenya shared, “A lot of these kids now, because this city is bankrupt, they are just not getting the opportunities. How do you expect them to excel when they can’t get a book they need for class, let alone a computer? I think right now it’s a dire situation for Detroit. I wish I could give more of my money to DPS. Clearly, $20,000 is not going to solve the problem, (but) hopefully it will help.”
