Part one of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta began with a preclude of the explosive drama at the end … which left me feeling like ‘yada, yada, yada… ‘ about everything else and wishing I could fast forward through the “Many Wigs Of Phaedra Parks” to just get to the crying, sobbing, hysterical meltdowns. In the meantime everybody is “sitting on ready” as they bicker about African princes, Apollo and Kenya Moore, and My Mansion’s better than your mansion…
Haven’t we already talked about all of this? Does time stand still in RHOA land?
AnywayAndy Cohen stuffed our Easter Baskets with golden eggs from rich Africans, construction refuge from Moore Manor and Chateau Sheree, and the easter grass was shredded legal documents. And just to be clear Porsha Williams reunion look is channeling Halle Berry, not Kandi Burruss circa season 2.
Just like a lot of the viewers, Cynthia Bailey was also surprised that Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak got into it during the Real Housewives of Atlanta season finale. Obviously Kim wasn’t going to waste her time by fading into the background of the episode, but it just seemed so random for her to have any sort of conversation with Kenya.
I expected to see Cynthia and Peter Thomas talking at Sheree Whitfield’s housewarming party just because Peter has been present at every big event this season and I expected the two of them to get some sort of closure during the last episode of the season.
I am one of the few people who fall into the rare cross section of Real Housewives of Atlantaviewers who are both Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore fans. I know that they cannot stand each other and I should probably pick a side, but I just think that they are both so shady and entertaining.
After two years of shading each other’s Atlanta mansions, I would have assumed that they were going to go in on each other at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party, but Kim Zolciak randomly showed up and came for Kenya- hard. Now I’m just hoping that the real estate-related shade has come to an end. I’m ready for a new story line.
I had no idea hat Kim and Kenya even knew each other well enough to have drama. Kenya started the show on the same season Kim flipped out and left in the middle. I didn’t think that they ever had a one-on-one conversation, let alone animosity between them. As expected, Kenya has A LOT to say now that the episode has aired.
After a whole season of spreading rumors about Kandi Burruss and never getting caught, I feel like Phaedra Parks is going to have a hellish time at the reunion. Sure Kandi and her had a nice moment during the Real Housewives of Atlantafinale episode, but that was before Kandi got to watch all of the episodes back and see exactly what Phaedra has been saying about her this entire time.
Other than the continued tension between Phaedra and Kandi, the other big story from the finale was Kim Zolciak’s return and her random argument with Kenya Moore.
After all of the rumors, lying, and even the drugging accusations that went down between Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss during this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, it is not at all surprising that these two go at each other during the reunion. These two are pulling no punches and Kandi made it clear she doesn’t believe Porsha actually goes to anger management.
On a lighter note, after Andy Cohen has spent many interviews interrogating Kenya Moore about whether or not she had a boob job, Kandi admitted to getting one herself during the reunion.
Even though Kandi Burruss has been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a long time, she has never had a season as tough as this one. From the demise of her friendship with Phaedra Parks, to Porsha Williams accusing her of attempted drugging and rape, to getting sued by a former employee, it would be an understatement to say that this was a rough one for Kandi.
Well now Kandi is firing back at her ex-employee Johnnie Winston after he sued her for allegedly not paying overtime wages and appeared on camera with Kandi’s nemesis Phaedra to discuss the case. Kandi is not messing around and is hitting him hard with a defamation suit.
The reunion will reportedly expose Phaedra as being the source behind Porsha Williams‘s claims that Kandi is a lesbian, and that Phaedra encouraged Porsha to make the “date rape” accusation. As a result Phaedra has not being given a “renewal contract” for season 10. Contracts were allegedly already sent last week. (seems a bit earlier than the usual)
Phaedra tried to blame the rumors on former Executive Producer Carlos King (Carlos supposedly had a professional beef with ToddTucker over a reality show on another network and apparently this manifested into a vendetta against Kandi). Kandi has obviously been was VERY, VERY unhappy with her storyline this season. So upset that Carlos was also reportedly fired, and won’t be returning next season.
