Kandi Burruss is not about the drama – don’t start none .. won’t be done – so she thought it necessary to bring the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta together to iron out their differences. Because these type of Real Housewives gatherings rarely have drama. LOL! Nice try, Kandi, but I’ve got your number.
There was nothing but drama – save for a few stale crackers – and not much was accomplished between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore.
Phaedra addressed the dinner cracker chat in her blog. “I was fine sitting down with all of the ladies,” she said. “While it is not something I would have initiated, I respect anything that is done in the interest of peace and harmony, which is why I attended.” Yeah, um, not to mention <eye roll> that contract with Bravo.
This weekend we received some information from a very credible source about the status of Phaedra Parks‘ marriage to Apollo Nida. Phaedra told our source that she has absolutely no plans to visit Apollo while he is incarcerated at FMC Lexington Prison in Kentucky.
Kenya Moore has been the victim of Apollo Nida‘s lies for years over sext-gate. After initially saying she wanted to apologize to Kenya for calling her a “whore” based on Apollo’s tales of cheating, Phaedra Parks has now placed Kenya at the bottom of her priority list. But has Kenya decided to forgive her anyway?
A source says that although Kenya no longer feels anger towards Phaedra, and accepts that Phaedra was reacting to Apollo’s lies, but she still hopes to receive an apology. Apparently it’s a matter of principle to the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star. “She’s tired of all the lies and the scorn that Apollo has caused,” an insider close to Kenya explains. “Now that Apollo has come clean and told Kenya face-to-face that he lied about her, she instantly forgave him. She no longer harbors any hatred in her heart for him.”
“When Phaedra learned of Apollo’s admission of his lies, she immediately said she owes me an apology. Yet, after her spa day, NeNe asserted that Apollo’s lie was a lie citing that Apollo is likely trying to hurt Phaedra,” said Kenya. “This rationale makes no sense. I am the last person to attempt to understand how Apollo’s mind works – but if I were going to prison for eight years and my only lifeline is my wife, why would I try to hurt her?” Um, because Apollo is selfish?
One thing Cynthia doesn’t understand is that if NeNe Leakes is over their friendship, why does NeNe keep bringing her up? “Kandi invited Phaedra and a couple of the ladies for a spa day. Kandi’s intention for this gathering was to give Phaedra a day of relaxation and a well-deserved break. With that said, I found it odd to be the main topic of conversation. One minute I’m irrelevant, and the next minute I am the focus of the universe,” Cynthia wonders.
About Porsha blowing her off, Claudia said, “I was surprised when I saw the shade at work, because before I moved to Atlanta, Porsha and I had hung out a few times in NYC and Miami and we have always had a good time.”
“I’m just the type that believes in at least trying,” Claudia said about reaching out to Porsha. “And I’m also not the type of woman that can ever be influenced to like or not like someone else based on anyone else’s opinion or experience. Maybe because of my journalism roots, but I like to see and find out for myself. I could never have another grown woman put a battery in my back or a thought in my brain. That is the ultimate fail.”
Y’all remind me to stay off of Phaedra Parks’ bad side! Geez Louise, she throws so much shade, she’s like a Ray-ban/parasol/beach cabana hybrid. Even those with the palest of complexions have no need for sunscreen if Phaedra is talking smack about them! Granted, she’s got pretty good reason to exercise her razor tongue thanks to her soon to be incarcerated husband.
Unless you’ve been on an all things Real Housewives of Atlanta sabbatical (and why would you want to do that?), you know that things between Phaedra and Apollo Nida are strained…to put it mildly. In my opinion, he’s a giant douchebag (pardon my French), who is now taunting his wife with his lying (or his lying about lying) about sexting with Kenya Moore. Of course, Phaedra reserves her harshest criticisms for Krayonce.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, a certain former beauty queen showed emotions other than shade and venom! Kenya Moore, tired of being blamed for an offense she did not commit, tired of being yanked into bitter marital drama, lost it. And dang if she didn’t give me just the teeniest twinge of sympathy pangs. Don’t worry – they’ll be short-lived!
I just want to get this out of the way first since we’re apparently gonna have to talk about this Kenya/Apollo Nida mess endlessly, my opinion is this: Apollo is a liar. End of story. Phaedra Parks and Kenya need to sit down, one-on-one, woman-to-woman and without shade.
Moving on, Kandi Burruss‘ business is a mess – she’s paying employees who are letting her down by not completing projects. This is what happens when you employ friends! Despite Mama Joyce calling Todd an “opportunist” – it seems like he’s the only person wanting Kandi’s business to grow and produce! He tells Kandi she needs to get her team – led by Don Juan – motivated to produce results. Kandi’s all like ohhhhnooooo… conflict. Ummm… errrrrr… lemme put on my most professional figure skating costume with the gold sparkly leotard and get these people in line because I sign their paychecks and Mama Joyce needs another new house!
