The first question is: What was the cause of their falling out? NeNe: I think over the years of being on the show and the stress and other people chiming in. We just kind of broke apart.”
How did they become friends again? NeNe: “I would say time. Time heals wounds.” Kim agrees.
NeNe shares that she hasn’t met Kim’s twins, Kaia and Kane (who just turned a year old). Then NeNe (is she tipsy?) says that she’s having another baby. But Andy assumes she means another grandbaby – but she doesn’t respond and they go to break.
On her relationship with sister Kim after Kingsley bit her daughter Alexia. “My daughter is doing better, back at school after a month off. ” Her relationship with Kim is better, “It was a bump in the road. It was a very emotional situation, Kingsley is very important to Kim and I don’t hold against her what happened in any way, shape or form, but it was difficult for our family absolutely.”
After playing a clip of Apollo Nida seeing a divorce attorney, Andy asks if Randy Kessler is the only attorney in Atlanta. Kandi says that he’s the guy who did Todd’s prenup, too. Lisa chimes in that everyone goes to him. Andy wishes he could go through Randy’s files.
They start off with small talk about Vanderpump Rules and Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor making up so quickly after last season’s cheating lies. Lisa jokes a little aboout how dirty Tom and Ariana’s apartment is. They then talk about the new season of Beverly Hills, which kicks off tomorrow. Lisa says this season is much better energy than last season.
Andy starts off asking a fan question – wanting to know why Kenya filed charges against Porsha Williams after the reunion brawl. Kenya claims that she didn’t actually file charges, but since she called 911 and got the police involved… Kenya shared, “Honestly Kandi and I will never agree on that. I draw the line at violence. We are there to be gaslights to each other at the reunions. We irritate, we provoke, we annoy, but we don’t resort to violence and I think that’s where I draw the line.”
Once again Bravo made us think an episode of The Real Housewives was going to be 90 minutes long, but as always, it was just that they tacked on a new episode of Watch What Happens Live. Tonight after the season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Andy’s guest on WWHL was NeNe Leakes.
NeNe shared her thoughts on the Apollo Nida sentencing, Kenya Moore, not getting any support from her co-stars and much more! Oh and Detroit Public Schools Foundation shouldn’t hold their breath for a check from NeNe because the “statute of limitations” ran out, at least in NeNe’s eyes.
What did NeNe think about Phaedra Parks not attending Apollo’s sentencing? “I had mixed feelings about it. I tried to put myself in that place. I am married, I would want to support my husband in the good and bad, but I can understand how it might have been difficult. I’m in a funny place with it. ” She just knows that if it was Gregg, she’d be there.
Caroline Manzo and Michelle Williams were the guests in the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live last night and of course Caroline was asked a lot of questions relating to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion episode that aired right before her appearance.
First up, Andy shows the ladies Gia Giudices’s girl group’s music video (a cover of Britney Spears’ Circus) and Michelle says it’s not a big thing and Caroline says it’s at the cusp of not being okay but it’s not bad. Note: we at first opted not to share the video when it released on Friday because of Gia’s age and other factors, but since it’s now a part of the WWHL episode, we’ll share it below..with the warning that you can bash Teresa Giudice’s parenting all you want, but any nasty comments about Gia or name calling directed at Gia will be deleted and will not be debated by our moderator.
Andy next shows Caroline footage of Teresa from part 1 of the reunion where she says she never hit below the belt. Caroline says “of course she hit below the belt, we all hit below the belt. Just admit that you hit below the belt. We saw it. There’s no denying what we see.”
Caroline on Teresa’s comments that she doesn’t miss Jacqueline: “I think she’s trying to project that she doesn’t care, but it’s clear that she does care. she gets emotional when she reads her texts, she can’t talk about it, she gets teary eyed, so I think she does care but doesn’t want to say it.”
Discussing DICKtionaryGate between Kathy and Teresa, Dina admits she initially thought Teresa was being ridiculous and should just accept Kathy’s apology. But now that Dina knows Kathy a little better… and has seen how Kathy is behaving with Jacqueline Laurita (i.e. using each other for camera time and filming reactions Teresa’s sentencing), Dina has changed her mind. Now she seems to imply that Kathy is manipulative and scheming just like everyone else on RHONJ!
