First, NeNe Leakes waltzes out wearing what can only be described a costume from the adult-entertainment version of Frozen. I mean, it was the ice queen cometh, although there is nothing icy about NeNe who can neither keep her comments nor her anger to herself.
NeNe came back to defend her turf, since she owns this show and couldn’t leave her “baby” to a group of teenagers who can’t do CPR. Andy Cohen seems to support this idea, even ifKandi Burruss is making the stank face to end all stank faces. Speaking of babies, Kandi has to leave to go pump – and the women all gasp over how phenomenal she looks post-baby (she does!).
One week into her “new normal,” Teresa Giudice spoke out for the first time since Joe Giudice checked himself in to the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, where he’ll be for the next 41 months.
In a video shared on The Daily Dish, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star said, “I just want to say thank you so much to all my fans out there. All your love and support means the world to me and my family. It’s been a difficult week for us, but we are making it through, thank God.”
Porsha compliments Andy on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, “You were on fire. Your follow-up questions were shady as hell.” Speaking of shade, how about Porsha’s digs at Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey?! Does Porsha think Cynthia knows the truth about Peter? “I don’t know what Cynthia knows,” she says. “All I know is that if she’s happy, I’m happy for her. She is the one who is married to him. They seem to be doing well today. Good luck, guys.”
I don’t know why I’m taking it personally, but the breakdown of Kandi Burruss’ and Phaedra Parks’ friendship feels like the end of an era in some sort of cosmic way! The real tragedy is how much these two Real Housewives of Atlanta stars still care about each other, but can’t seem to find common ground. And how a felon man ultimately came between them (thanks, Apollo!).
Kandi admits that she gets emotional when discussing her disintegrating friendship with Phaedra, as she did on part one of the RHOA reunion. “I get frustrated having these conversations in front of everyone. I do care about our friendship. That’s why I’m emotional about it. And because I care, I still won’t say certain things that would make her look bad. Even though I feel like I’ve been made to look like the bad guy.”
Cynthia Bailey was greeted by several surprise appearances on the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. She was busted not once, but two times! First by the FEDs who showed up on her doorstep inquiring about Apollo Nida‘s belongings, and then by her teenage daughter Noelle, who busted in on her giving Peter Thomas the happy ending special — IN THE KITCHEN (why the kitchen?!)
“I was surprised and mortified when Noelle and Leon walked in on me giving Peter a massage,” admits Cynthia. “I’m sure they were as well!” Ya think!?
Kandi, who looks amazing, says, “The baby is awesome and life is good.”
RuPaul admits that he loves Kenya Moore dressed as The Grinch. “I thought she stole the show,” he shares. “You gotta love it. You gotta love a freak. I think Kenya‘s freak meter is about an 11.”
When asked about Matt and Kenya together, Kandi says, “They seem happy. He is different than what I would have thought she would have fallen for. He is a nice guy, don’t get me wrong, I just wouldn’t have seen them together.”
Everyone has returned safely and soundly from Jamaica. Well, safely if you don’t count gushing emotional wounds! But, at the very least, everyone is trying to move on from the traumatic trip by focusing on the positives in their lives. For Kim Fields that means doing what she does best: Keeping it professional.
After being re-inspired (HA!) by directing Cynthia Bailey‘s ‘mercial, Kim has a Skype meeting with Art, her longtime agent, to discuss the future of her directorial career. Art wants examples of Kim’s recent projects to use as a reel for other clients – including a new TV show. Please Lord do not tell me Kim is considering the CB Eyewear ‘mercial a legit indicator of her abilities!?
