Was anyone else totally confused by this episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta? I don’t know what was more disturbing: the majorly disjointed story or Claudia Jordan‘s feet. I need some clarity on motives here – and also on shade, which I thought was genteel and left one guessing, not obviously wrong like a bunion crusted-foot.
The clips set-up this episode to be a big show-down in Puerto Rico between the establishment and the upstarts (not unlike an episode of Downton Abbey, although I dare say Lady Mary’s reads are far superior to anyone on RHOA). And yes, that did happen, but I felt like we’re missing some serious backstory. Was there a reason Phaedra Parks is suddenly gunning for Demetria McKinney like Evander Holyfield? Is Phaedra in love with Roger Bobb too? Speaking which, I beginning to believe Roger the Friendly Ghost comes from Claudia’s mysterious sugar daddy connect – or Kenya Moore‘s over-active iMANgination!
Willie watched the episode and joked to Claudia, “You took a shot at the throne!” Claudia replied, “You know what, I do not start with anyone. I will respond and I felt like I had no choice.”
Claudia says the shade coming from Phaedra toward Demetria was totally out of the blue, there was no beef between them. She says Demetria is a really cool girl. A cool girl who happens to be in the WWHL audience.
So did anyone change the channel from the Golden Globes to tune into Sister Wives? I think Kody Brown’s hair could have trumped any of the celebrity manes on the red carpet!
Last night was yet another road trip with the Browns to–you guessed it–meet another polygamist family! We also learn that the latest lady to move into the cul-de-sac compound is Christine’s mom. Mykelti is clearly her mother’s daughter when it comes to enthusiasm, and Janelle is nervous about returning home. After the vacation, Janelle hopes to speak to Meri about their tumultuous past. The family’s first stop is at their friend’s polygamy museum. Of course it is. Kody plans to hit him up for a business loan for My Sister Wife’s Closet. Kody asks for about $100,000, but his friend wants collateral for the loan. Perhaps Robyn would suffice? I just don’t see how that tacky jewelry inventory is worth securing that amount of money.
Puerto Rico is apparently the place to go if you’re a Real Housewife with a vendetta who is looking to start a fight. Tonight the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta take their first of the cast trips as the venture to Puerto Rico. Before all that Claudia Jordan gives us background on her relationship with NeNe Leakes – which will be the basis of their verbal discourse.
Claudia reveals that NeNe is simply judging her based on assumptions and gives backgrounds for how they met in the first place (hint: it was twitter. And Charles Grant). It turns out that despite NeNe saying she merely knew Claudia, they were actually friends who socialized together so imagine Claudia’s surprise to be completely ignored by NeNe at Kandi’s party.
With so many reality TV shows coming and going lately, we decided to gather up the reality TV listings every week for Sunday through Friday.
Because life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, this week brings us a double dose of Kate Gosselin, first on Celebrity Apprentice on Monday and second on the unfortunate return of Kate Plus 8 on Tuesday. This week’s new shows include Friends to Lovers? on Bravo, Married at First Sight: The First Year on FYI, and Miki Saves the Date on FYI.
Check out the reality TV listings list, which includes the Watch What Happens Live guests for the week, and let us know what you plan to watch.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
