Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss has always been one of the more mild-mannered, level-headed, successful in her own right outside of Bravo members of the franchise. Sure, she likes to stir the pot every now and then, but she usually remains impartial and even tempered.
I was hoping we'd get to watch Kandi enjoy her engagement to fiancee Todd Tucker on this season. It would be a nice change of pace from Kenya Moore's fan foolishness and her overexposed text triangle with Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida. Alas, even Kandi's story line is tainted with negativity. I'd say she should leave the drama to her mama, but unfortunately, that's exactly what's happening!
The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are having serious family problems this year. Luckily for us they still manage to throw shade and keep up the witty commentary.
Phaedra Parks and Apollo are still having married people problems. Problems that come when one of said married persons chooses to possibly allegedly perhaps send illicit texts to a person whom they are not married to. Made even worse when the sext recipient is said wife's booticious enemy!
Phaedra and her entourage are headed to Alabama where she attends mortuary school and is studying for exams. Speaking of the dead, Phaedra leaves Apollo with dead silence since they are not speaking. In Phaedra's study group she talks all things Phunerals by Phaedra including that a good week for Willie Watkins has 15 funerals and she assists.
Phaedra is considerably more real this season; like she seems to be less of the contrived Miz Parks, Southern Belle-nonsense and more like, 'I'm about to bury my husband and forget to embalm his manbits!'
Things naturally begin at a sex swing lesson. Kenya (rocking some leggings so tight I swear they had to be surgically removed and coochie crack was as well as booty crack imminent) has all her faux assets on display as she swings upside down. 'Weeeeeee! I'm gone with the wind fabulous!' she's cheering to herself when Kandi Burruss walks in.
Speaking for the masses, Kandi announces she is over Gone With The Wind Fabulous: "The wind is gone. It's blown away." Amen. Kandi demures participating in sex swinging because she sprained her ankle falling off some heels. The real reason for this meet up is investigative journalism. Kandi wants to know the true nature of Kenya and Apollo's texting. Or was it sexting…
A Mother's Love, which is based loosely on Kandi's own life, debuted at Atlanta's Rialto Center for the Arts on Friday. "Though things are exaggerated, you will see moments of my life in the musical," Kandi tells BroadwayWorld.com. Kandi is both the writer and the star of the play which also features a bevy of musical heavyweights.
"Writing A Mother's Love has been therapy for me in many ways. I've had to focus and not only co-write the script which is loosely about my life but have also written twenty (20) songs for the play in a very short amount of time which has allowed me to unload a lot of emotions inside of me," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star explains. The title is ironic given Kandi's own recent issues with her mother Joyce who openly disapproves of her relationship with Todd.
A Mother's Love is the story of a complicated relationship between a mother and daughter, focusing on a mother's difficulty to let her daughter make choices in her own love life. Hmmm… semi-autographical, Kandi? Or basically this is your life!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Kandi admits it was the network's decision to cancel her show. "To be honest, we didn't really have a final conversation," Kandi tells Jasmine Brand. "They were like, 'Why did you tell people that it wasn't being re-upped?' They didn't tell me that but I kinda just assumed since we hadn't been talking about it. So I was like, 'I guess we're not doing it.'"
Do you hear that? I think it's Mr. Ozzy Osbourne inviting us to join Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKenya Moore for a ride on the crazy train! We're goin' off the rails, y'all (or at least she is)! Kenya is treating us to some juicy tidbits in her latest Bravo blog, touching on everything from Kandi Burruss' engagement to Cynthia Bailey's sex life. Of course, we're more focused on her delusions, right?
Kenya continues to call out Porsha Stewart for gay-bashing soon-to-be-ex-husband Kordell. While I don't condone Porsha's childish behavior in any way, shape, or form (seriously, get over it, girl!), Kenya slandered poor Walter's name all up and down I-85 by constantly insinuating that the only reason he couldn't possibly want to be with her is because he plays for the other team. She gives me a headache!
Let's not forget Conya's cop calling! I have no words…but Kenya does, so read on!
Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta things continued to be down for our ladies as they dealt with family and marriage problems, divorce, eviction(!), surgery, and unemployment.
Things begin with Kandi Burruss talking to production partner Don Juan. Kandi has a brand new office and tells us she writes her best songs when going through complicated situations. And complicated is about to get more complicated as Don Juan has obviously been talking to Mama Joyce about Todd! `
Don is worried Kandi will let love get in the way of her seeing dollar signs and that her business will suffer. Ok – Poor Kandi! Seriously why is everyone all over this girl's bank account? Back off her, gold diggers! She needs to write a new version of No Scrubs!
Kandi discusses the situation with daughter Riley who reminds her mom that her marriage will have to come before her relationship with Joyce, who is either going to have to accept Todd or not! Watch Kandi write the best songs of her career and not give anyone a dime! #Scrubless
