This Real Housewives of Atlanta has to be the toughest one yet for Kandi Burruss. She is really in the thick of it going against the self-proclaimed “Frick and Frack” duo Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. Not only are these two arguing with Kandi whenever possible, but they’re really pushing the Kandi and Shamea Morton lesbian affair rumors. As scandalous as that all is, the saddest part of this season is seeing how far Kandi and Phaedra have come from their former best friendship. Kandi even thinks their relationship is worse thanks to the show.
I feel like Kandi is going to have a lot to address whenever they film the RHOAreunion this year. She is somehow involved in just about every story line this year minus the beyond annoying battle between Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor. So of course, Kandi has a lot to say about the drama so far this season.
Reality Tea is ranking of every, single Housewife from every, single season from almost every Real Housewives franchise. You can find Part 1 of our rankings here. Now we finally return with Part 2 (aka the big ole mush in the middle)!
In Part 1 we mostly covered most Housewives who were either too crazy to be legit, or didn’t make much of an impact, or were just so miscast and off it was painful. Some of them were too nice, or too timid, or not rich enough, or too desperate. If she’s only a Housewife for a season, there’s usually a reason!
This week, Cynthia talked to Matt Jordan on Kenya‘s behalf, which was a nice thing to do, but when she reported back to Kenya by calling her “dramatic” and implying that she had somehow caused Matt’s violence, Kenya was not having it. Now Cynthia is defending her behavior. The convo that Cynthia had with Matt wasn’t too bad. Her loyalty was clear and she seemed to genuinely care for both parties involved. Nevertheless, things got messy when Cynthia recapped it with Kenya.
What went through Sheree‘s mind during the drama at dinner with Porsha not wanting to discuss her anger management therapy? “‘This just went left!’ I can see why Porsha could have felt attacked, but I also think if she just would have taken a moment to herself and rejoined the group and shared with all of us that it is something she doesn’t want to discuss, it would have probably ended the talk.”
I feel like Shamea Morton should be holding a peach on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is mentioned in pretty much every episode, with no defense from her supposed “best friend” Porsha Williams. Not only is Porsha throwing her BFF under the bus, but she has been coming for Kandi Burruss in the process. Kandi is done with it and she doesn’t believe anything that involves Porsha, including that doctor’s note she brought to the group “glamping” trip.
For a minute, I thought that Porsha seemed like a great friend because of her loyalty to Phaedra Parks. They even had me thinking “#FriendshipGoals” real quick, but that quickly faded when she never actually stood up for her girl Shamea.
Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.
These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).
I remember Cynthia Bailey hosting a random pageant through her modeling agency on Real Housewives of Atlanta a few seasons back. It wasn’t the smoothest event, but it did make for good TV. Nevertheless, someone thought that Cynthia had enough experience and insight to judge the Miss Universe pageant in the Philippines. Luckily for her fans and pageant enthusiasts, she shared plenty of photos from her judging experience.
I’m just wondering how former Miss USA Kenya Moore feels about her RHOAco-star being chosen to judge this year and not her. Well, at least Kenya got to check out Cynthia’s pics just like the rest of us.
We never see Phaedra being lewd in that way, especially with gross sexual hand gestures. So why was she acting “so out of character.” Kandi claims that actually is the real Phaedra and that she, Porsha, and Sheree Whitfield were under the impression that the cameras weren’t rolling during that conversation. How would seasoned reality TV stars not know that they were being filming for their own show? Kandi explained exactly how that works and that it justifies the scandalous gossip that we all got to watch this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
