Even though your DVR claimed there was a two hour season finale of Real Housewives of Atlantatonight, it was really just an hour and thirty minutes long, topped off with an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Sneaky way to again claim RHOA's ratings as WWHL ratings, too? Anywhoo… Andy sits down one-on-one with Porsha Williams to chat about the reunion brawl with Kenya Moore and her abuse claims regarding Kordell Stewart and she calls Kenya out for lying about being the first black Miss USA winner.
Porsha says she's been in contact with Phaedra, Kandi and NeNe since everything went down, but she hasn't heard from Cynthia.
Andy wants to know what her cast mates had to say to her. "Phaedra was just really upset. These girls know me now at this point. I've been their friend for two years straight, so for them to see me act completely out of character and let Kenya win like that. That was the main thing, I was sorry that it had to reach that point, I was sorry that that was my reaction, but more than that I was sorry that I gave her the power to make me go and do something like that."
NeNe Leakes turned the tables on Andy Cohen in a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. Nene got Andy to confess who has the say in casting the Real Housewives, whether he only hires Housewives with money and are heading for bankruptcy and so much more. Andy even slams the other "wives" style copycat ripoff shows.
Andy reveals that his favorite Real Housewives franchise is "the one that I'm watching; the one I'm screening. I go all over the map. Atlanta makes me laugh the hardest. It's consistently the funniest, although new York makes me [laugh] too."
The most fashionable franchise is Beverly Hills. "I think Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta have the most fashion." What do you like about BH? "I like seeing their houses. The weather is always great and they're always outside. And it's all roses and hair and.."
NeNe asks, do you have a hand in hiring and firing housewives? "I do". NeNe squawks, "So if anything ever happens to me, I need to come for you? What! are you kidding me?" Andy asks if she seriously knew that or not and she swears she had NO idea.
Despite her fury at the reunion, Kyle feels in a better place. "I think at the reunion I was able to get some things off my chest that I have held in for a long time and I know that I personally left feeling better – better about everybody, actually." Even Brandi Glanville hasn't managed to piss her off too much!
Party in the clubhouse! Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer reunited on Watch What Happens Live tonight and they took a trip down Real Housewives of New Yorkmemory lane – and it was fun! The ladies dished on their seasons together, Bethenny talked about her canceled talk show, and both ladies talk divorce.
Things kick off with Andy referring to tonight's episode whereSonjaMorgan mentions it takes 35 people to run "team Sonja". Ramona says "Sonja doesn't always know what she's talking about. She just kind of rambles on about things that don't make sense sometimes. It means she probably has 35 interns in one year." Andy asks if the interns really crash at Sonja's house and Ramona says they do. Bethenny adds, "she likes to talk about the lavishness or the elaborateness of her life."
What's better than housewife has beens when it comes to rating gold on Watch What Happens Live? That's right…house-husbands! When two former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars appeared in Andy Cohen's clubhouse, the ladies garnered the talk show's second highest ratings for the year thus far…and no one even had to tug a wig!
When Kim Zolciak was a guest on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week we noted that she was very reserved and not her normal sass-talking self. Don't worry, this is not a new, mellow version of Kim that we're seeing. It turns out she just had a lot on her mind…like rough and tumble little boys!
Kim took to Instagram to share this photo of her son KJ, who broke his leg right before she had to leave for NYC!
We were so excited about Kim Zolciak hanging out in the clubhouse tonight on Watch What Happens Live. We thought maybe she would be announcing a new season of Don't Be Tardy. Then we secretly hoped she was going to announce her return to Real Housewives of Atlanta for next season. And one of us may or may not have thought she was going to announce another pregnancy. Sadly, none of the above happened! But she did look good (and I'm not usually dazzled by blingy shoes, but hers were seriously cute), so there's that.
Kim sat down to chat with Andy, along with former Housewife Sheree Whitfield. Andy started right off by asking if they were glad that they didn't have to intermingle with the likes of Kenya Moore. Sheree says "I don't think she's that bad, I think she's good for the show. I will say it's better to watch the trainwreck than to be part of it."
Andy had to ask about the status of She by Sheree: "I have some jewelry but I also have some T-shirts that are still selling, but right now I'm kind of working on a fitness DVD. I actually just taped it about a week ago. I'm really excited about it. That's always been my plan."
Andy: You're getting a lot of shit on Twitter tonight
Brandi – Am I? Well Twitter can suck it.
Andy announces the poll question (team Lisa or team Brandi) and Brandi snaps "Well I never win and this was like your poll question LAST week, soo… I'm not gonna win". (And she didn't – she got 33%)
The first question for Brandi is wondering why everyone decided to go against Lisa this season? "Because she's perfect. No, I'm kidding. I don't think all of the girls decided to go against her. I think we all had separate issues with her. It felt like when one person opened that door, it was like 'okay we can all do it'. Separately but it is hard to go against her because she is so perfect."
