When asked how she passed the time on the 18-hour flight, Cynthia shared, “I watched four movies, had breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner twice, read five magazines, slept for five hours, and talked Kandi‘s ear off whenever she was awake. Oh yeah, I’m pretty sure I drank a bottle of wine as well. And just when I thought that I could not take it anymore, we still had nine hours left to go!”
Last Friday the Real Housewives Of Atlanta filmed their reunion, which as you can imagine sounds pretty divisive (although far less insane than last season!). Despite the cast claiming to have worked through issues in therapy and on their trip to the Philippines, their subsequent blogs and interviews have been vicious and point to feuds remaining very much alive! Reacting most publicly to whatever happened at the reunion was NeNe Leakes!
NeNe announced she will no longer be blogging or discussing RHOA! “So many of you have asked me how was The ATL Housewives Reunion! What did I wear and how was my hair LOL! Obviously I can’t speak on it but I can say these things….(1) I feel like I been in a daze for the past few days! Really mentally drained (2) I went in feeling very at peace and I had mentally accepted things I could not change. (3) I had made my mind up that there were people I would NEVER talk to again in life….but God! Won’t he do it! #RHOAREUNION #WAIT4IT”
The ladies show up at the airport in good spirits. Porsha Williams had more Louis Vuitton luggage than she has brain cells and negotiating the luggage carousel in heels was like the second coming of Sheneneh. Porsha must look cute because she may meet her future married African sugar daddy husband at the airport! All the single men would rather endure an endless TSA security checkpoint, than deal with PoorTaste – or her baggage!
Upon arriving at the airport Phaedra Parks hid in her limo cause ‘a Krayonce was ‘a comin! She’s been on RHOA trips before… Despite Claudia’s protestations that the Philippines will be positive vibes, Phaedra declares these women would argue even at the second coming of Christ. Of course they would – because Lord knows all of ’em ain’t getting into heaven!
Is Dr. Jeff the newest addition to the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta? He certainly behaved the way any good newbie does on the show by complimenting the veterans and trying to navigate NeNe Leakes without looking like a total doormat, which, by the way, never works. I’d say he’s doing just fine. In a few more seasons, he may be at the same point as Kenya Moore. A man can dream, can’t he?
Initially her brand of cray confidence made her an outsider among the cast, but now Krayonce and her bullhorn have twirled into the inner circle of fabulousity. She’s found a loyal chum in Cynthia Bailey who once contractually obligated the Neenster into a friendship pact, and she’s open to finding love with a man who isn’t invisible or playing a role (well, I mean…can we confirm that?) with her recent stint on the Millionaire Matchmaker.
“Don’t you just love the dramatics of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta? I loved how Dr. Jeff was saying ‘Nene, you’re going to that place again.’ ‘Nene, you’re getting angry,’ as I calmly walked to my car. He’s got a job to do too, right? How well do I know how that works?” snarked NeNe. “It works about as well as those blue cards he was reading off of with all the producer’s notes on them! LOL!”
Cynthia said she feels progress was during the counseling session. “Everyone who wanted to resolve their issues did resolve them and moved on.” Love the much-deserved shade thrown at NeNe, but let’s get real, Cynthia. Nothing was resolved in that therapy session.
Kenya Moore set her inner-Krayonce aside to find love on the Millionaire Matchmaker. Seriously – there were no Kenyanigans. I was strangely disappointed. As much as I snark on Kenya, I rely on her insanity to keep me indentured to Bravo. I do not need to see her behaving normally. But alas, we all must make sacrifices for love!
There were shocking developments however – Patti Stanger actually made two love connections (!) as she established herself the champion of under-appreciated women in their 40’s and 50’s! Or something like that – I tuned out around the time she described Cynthia Bailey as one of the top supermodels in the world and Kenya’s best friend.
NeNe Leakes has left the building! And some real-ish therapy happened on Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Well, as real as you’re gonna get from 4 broads whose occupations are Shadeologists (degree available online at Shade U, an akkredited university), and one broad whose occupation is Denialologist, degree available at MamaJoyce Be Your Guide.com. Oh, and NeNe, well she kept it real NeNe – all the problems aren’t her fault, and Dr. Jeff shouldn’t be allowing everyone to “dump” them in her lap on a plate from the buffet. Well Kandi Burruss would still eat it!
Therapy is in progress when NeNe up and flees, toting two Birkins filled with her emotional baggage. Dr. Jeff, the yappy Pomeranian on her heels, begs her to return. NeNe’s glowing red transformer eyes accuse him of allowing everyone to blame her for all the issues. It was a conspiracy! The entire first part of the session, was all NeNe, all times. Usually she likes that sort of thing but not when she’s being told what she doesn’t want to hear!
Dr. Jeff tries to appease NeNe by reminding her that she has so much to contribute. In response NeNe snaps, “You should lose your license!” Dr. Jeff follows NeNe out to her car, counseling her about anger taking her to dark places… She uses all of her self-restraint not to poke his eyes out, then commands the guards to haul him away and throw him in the viper pit.
