For Kandi and Todd it has been a shocking couple of years filled with extreme ups (getting married, finally getting pregnant) and extreme downs (Mama Joyce, Todd’s mother Sharon passing away unexpectedly, and Kandi losing her friendship to Phaedra). A year after Sharon’s death, with Kandi having only 5 weeks to go until baby Ace arrives, they visit Sharon’s grave. Her tombstone reads, “A great mother and the life of the party.”
After returning from her visit with Apollo, Phaedra is in the mood to do something fun and festive. She decides to celebrate the holidays by throwing an over-the-top Christmas party. I do love Dwight and his undercover shade.
Ever the professional, Kim says she’s happy with Cynthia’s ‘Mercial “because the client was pleased. Cynthia and her team are taking their brand and product to another level; my team and I are blessed to be a part of that process. Personally speaking, I really do like the ‘mercial! It’s hot, fun, and everyone is great in it.”
Porsha Williams has given us Naked Hair, but in this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, she served up some Naked Lingerie. (And her nearly Naked Self!) Gushing about her new business venture, Porsha shares, “I really wanted to create a visual for our customer! A lot of times women only think you can wear lingerie in the bedroom. However with Naked Lingerie we have a wide variety of sexy pieces for you to enjoy in whatever you are doing at home!” Like cleaning up doggie poop?
Porsha says her lingerie line is “designed for the everyday woman; no matter what size you are, you are fabulous and we have pieces to accentuate and flatter your figure!” Awww, Porsha. Can’t hate a housewife for her hustle! Go Get It Girl!
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!?
Andy asks Kim if she is competing on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. Neither confirming nor denying, she says, “I’m so excited. There’s so many fantastic opportunities that are coming up this year for me. I’m celebrating my fortieth year in the industry. We got a lot of great things going on, lots of fun stuff happening.” That sounds like “yes but I’m not allowed to say so” to me.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star released the ‘mercial on YouTube, and I’ll admit: It’s pretty cute (although the acting could use some serious improvement). Boasting the slogan “Life as you see it” the horizon in Cynthia’s life does not include footage of Kenyapaddle-boating to eternity.
