About the trip to Miami, Cynthia shared, “I was very excited about the girls’ trip do over. Especially in Miami! I was looking forward to putting all the Lake Lanier drama behind me. It was really thoughtful of Kenya to go out of her way to plan the Lake Lanier outing, on my behalf, to lift my spirits. A “do over” with Kenya and Porsha planning it together (after everything they have been through) was confirmation for me that Porsha and I could move our relationship forward in a positive direction. I welcomed the opportunity.”
With the addition of Kim Fields to the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast this season, we’ve seen mixed reactions from fans. Some think she’s way too normal and low-key for this crazy show and others argue that it’s laid-back style that makes her a great addition and a bit of a breath of fresh air – a voice of reason. Also split on their feelings over Kim joining the cast are co-stars Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore. The ladies took to their Bravo blogs this week with very different opinions on what Kim is bringing the show this season.
Phaedra enjoys that Kim brings a different perspective since she’s the newbie. On Kim calling out ‘instigation vs. information’ in regard to Kenya’s sometimes shady way of stirring the pot, Phaedra shared, “My grandmother always said, “A new broom sweeps cleaner!” I thought Kim’s observation was very intuitive. Since she is new to our circle, she brings a different perspective that is refreshing; most of us have been dealing with this adolescent style behavior for some time and we are numb to it. Kim reminds us that people usually don’t do and say a lot of things we see and hear amongst our circle, so it’s nice to have someone there who is so grounded.”
Of her comment that information is not the same as instigation,Kim claims, “I’m not a ‘call out’ type of woman. It was an observation of the way things were going down at dinner.” But will Kenya-Don’t-Come-For-Me-Unless-Twirl-For-You take Kim’s commentary in stride? Something tells me: Nah.
Dealing with Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s shady ladies, has taught Phaedra a thing or two. Imparting the wisdom of her Housewives ages Phaedra tries to live by the Golden Rule. Which is, “Do unto others as I would have them do unto me. And so, when you think like that, you try to sow the right seeds, so that’s what I try to do, even with these mean heifers.”
Andy starts off by asking Phaedra about the stories that circulated recently, claiming that Apollo was being transferred to Ft. Dix, the prison Joe Giudice will be heading off to in February to serve his four year stint. She confirms that Apollo is already there.
In a bizarre twist of well, everything Real Housewives Of Atlanta has stood for these long seasons,Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams planned the trip together. As co-conspirators.
The fight on the boat was a reality check for these two, so despite their constant animosity, Kenya and Porsha decided to come together to plan a re-do of Cynthia Bailey‘s redone bachelorette party. Or whatever because Cynthia and Peachter are just great now. So uh… congrats!
In her new blog, Sheree shares her feelings on Cynthia and Porshabrawling on TV. “I was honestly taken aback for a minute. It’s so unfortunate that in this day and age these grown women took it this far on national TV for the world to continue to judge us. None of us are perfect, I get it! We all are a work in progress, and hopefully they will learn from this and learn to deal with conflict in a much better way.”
