After Phaedra Parks hinted that she’d consider visiting Apollo Nida in prison for Christmas it doesn’t appear that she did!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star instead opted for a “quiet” traditional Christmas spent in Atlanta with immediate family. Just three days before Christmas, Phaedra was spotted with bestie Kandi Burruss and She By SheBroke at the Atlanta Mayor’s Ball, where she was all smiles.
This season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta is full of surprises for Cynthia Bailey! From her friendship with NeNe Leakes deteriorating, to Phaedra Parks marriage to Apollo Nida unraveling, to the addition of new Housewives like Demetria McKinney. Cynthia reflects on the latest episode and talks Phaedra and Apollo’s awkward moment and Demetria’s secret relationship to Roger Bobb!
“Demetria and I met a couple of years ago and have always been friendly. We have a few mutual friends and travel in some of the same social circles. We were never close until recently, so yes, I was very surprised to learn that she and Roger were dating,” Cynthia admits. “Let alone for 8 years! LOL!”
Mama Drama: “It saddens me to see Kandi still going through such heartache with her mother, and blended and extended family,” said Kenya. “This should be the happiest time of her life, but it has been overshadowed by the constant infighting. I hope for peace for Kandi and that she can focus on extending her family with a new little one soon. She deserves it.” Kandi’s problem is Kandi.
Despite evidence to the contrary, NeNe Leakes is human y’all and sometimes she makes mistakes – like that WIG she was wearing on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Of course because NeNe Leakes is also NeNe Leakes, she claims fabulosity comes at a price and sometimes the truly creative designers among us take a risk which explains her lifelong episode of being foliculely challenged!
NeNe admits that WIG didn’t work, but says she is just soooooo busy being soooooo fabulous and soooooo successful and sooooo ‘nother level she did not have time to obsess over her hair. A very rich bitch pays her best accessories – the gays – to be in charge of her appearance, cause a rich bitch has little mini gays she carries around in her Firkin. BTW: does this mean we can now call NeNe “WIG”? I digress.
“As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don’t work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn’t work,” NeNe states. “I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I’d rather not!”
On Real Housewives of Atlanta this week, Phaedra Parks joined her friends and co-stars for Demetria McKinney‘s video release party. Phaedra said she needed a girls night out away from her prison bound huzzzband, Apollo Nida, and all that’s going on at home. Big. Mistake. Because where there’s a RHOA camera, there’s Apollo boohooing about how everyone has wronged him. Ugh. How soon until this con artist is off my TV?!?
Phaedra shared her thoughts on the party with Bravo in her blog.
When asked her first impressions of Demetria and Claudia Jordan, Phaedra said, “When I attended Demetria’s event, my focus was an evening of escape from my current reality. I didn’t attend with the idea of engaging in any captivating conversations. I had very limited interaction with Demetria and Claudia, so my frist impression was merely that both women were attempting to embark on new career and relationship frontiers.”
Andy surmised that it must be hard for Phaedra to watch this season of RHOA considering all she has gone through – and is still going through – with Apollo. “Definitely. Any time you are dealing with something very personal in the media and on TV it’s very difficult,” said Phaedra. “It’s quite uncomfortable.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a modern day fairytale! Maidens dueled over the elusive Roger Bobb, prince of production-ville, NeNe Leakes was cursed by an evil gay and and was doomed to an episode of bad wigs, and Phaedra Parks turned to stone. Ahhh… love!
Before any of this happens we’re confronted with Mama Joyce. First thing, right out of the gate, like bad news before coffee in the morning that’s too early. Kandi Burruss‘ family is having a BBQ, she arrives with Todd, and she’s not speaking to Joyce because her boyfriend destroyed the house Kandi gave her, which Kandi, for some reason, didn’t know until after she bought MJ a new house. Things that make you go hmm…
Cynthia Bailey barely got the opportunity to raise her voice to a squeak during her altercation with NeNe Leakes, now Cynthia say she was just trying to command respect through telecommunication! Duh!
“Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star explains.
