I feel like Shamea Morton should be holding a peach on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is mentioned in pretty much every episode, with no defense from her supposed “best friend” Porsha Williams. Not only is Porsha throwing her BFF under the bus, but she has been coming for Kandi Burruss in the process. Kandi is done with it and she doesn’t believe anything that involves Porsha, including that doctor’s note she brought to the group “glamping” trip.
For a minute, I thought that Porsha seemed like a great friend because of her loyalty to Phaedra Parks. They even had me thinking “#FriendshipGoals” real quick, but that quickly faded when she never actually stood up for her girl Shamea.
We never see Phaedra being lewd in that way, especially with gross sexual hand gestures. So why was she acting “so out of character.” Kandi claims that actually is the real Phaedra and that she, Porsha, and Sheree Whitfield were under the impression that the cameras weren’t rolling during that conversation. How would seasoned reality TV stars not know that they were being filming for their own show? Kandi explained exactly how that works and that it justifies the scandalous gossip that we all got to watch this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It doesn’t matter that the very thought of latrines and paper plates nearly drove everyone to blows over dinner, Phaedra Parks has decided “roughing it” on a glamping trip is just what the group needs to work through their issues. And if not, she’ll put them on toilet digging duty or have them get lost in the woods. Unfortunately, Porsha has been avoiding Phaedra since dinner, over her possible allegiance to Kenya. So, Phaedra decides the thing to do is meet Kenya on mutual territory to discuss how an anger management conversation got so, well, angry.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is messier than Bob Whitfield’s attempts at dancing and smoothie making, and we’re sure to see more of the drama on tonight’s new episode. Friendships are tested and tea is being spilled left and right. However, were any of these friendships actually genuine in the first place? If you’d asked me a few years ago, I would have predicted that Kandi Burrus and Phaedra Parks’ pairing would stand the test of time. They truly seemed to enjoy each other and have fun together.
Of course, we all know how that relationship has progressed! Thanks to all the not so subtle shade and Phaedra’s new alliance with Porsha Williams, the rift between Kandi and Phaedra seems to be widening…and Kandi wants fans to know she’s done staying quiet about it.
The last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was a big one for Phaedra Parks. We saw her getting along with former nemesis Kenya Moore to give back to the kids in Flint, Michigan. As moving as it was to watch these two genuinely making a difference, the viewers were brought back to reality when Porsha Williams and her anger issues took center stage at a group dinner.
It’s pretty ironic that Phaedra’s bestie was the one in the middle of the controversy during an episode that should have been a happy one about Phaedra’s philanthropy. SMH, Porsha. All Phaedra wanted to do was gather the women to plan a camping trip and then shit really went awry.
In her blog, Cynthia celebrates her move to the lake house and wonders why things got “so dramatic” at Phaedra Parks’ dinner. Cynthia begins by discussing her time as Kandi Burruss’ house guest: “I had a really fun time staying with Kandi. Although she didn’t seem that happy to see me when me (and my Fruit Loops) first I arrived at her house, we ended up having the best time. We spent hours laughing, talking, and watching movies.”
Kandi Burruss is getting a lot of heat this season for sharing her opinions, but I feel like it’s about time she opens up after staying quiet for so long. Don’t get me started on her Kandi Koated Clique, but I do think she is usually in the right when it comes to standing up to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. And to be honest, Porsha was out of control during the last episode when she went off against Kandi and Kenya Moore. It sure does not seem like Porsha stuck with those anger management classes.
Kandi doesn’t seem to care about that drama though. I feel like she’s just on RHOAto collect her check and promote her many products. And now that her daughter Riley Burruss is following her musical foot steps, Kandi probably doesn’t have the time for Porsha and her desperate reaches to create story lines. Don’t even get me started on her “relationship” this season. But since Kandiis a Real Housewife, she’s basically required to share her opinions on what goes down and that includes Porsha’s anger issues.
