It’s either raining Real Housewives Of Atlanta spinoffs over at Bravo! Or some people just thirsty for attention… Claudia Jordan recently hinted on instagram that she may be headed for her own solo show. Lifestyles Of A Bunionista, anyone?! Meanwhile Kandi Burruss is ready to move into the motivational speaking realm of things and wants to share what she’s learned from her successes and failures – reality TV included!
First up, Claudia! The newbie RHOA star enjoyed Easter brunch with producers Carlos King and Brent Nisbett (who also produce Hollywood Divas with Todd Tucker!) and she announced that “may be” a spinoff is coming…
There have been several rumors that Claudia (who knew Carlos) was cast on the show specifically to cause conflict (with a certain Housewife who has since issued her a C&D letter) and was coached by producers. As a result of some acrimonious situations (some of which were edited out) and the vociferous complaints of other Housewives about favortism and storyline manipulations, an EVP was let-go. Carlos even did an interview promising that Claudia would bring the drama. However, NeNe Leakes has a longtime friendship with Princess Banton-Lofters, the creator of RHOA…
The girls are still in Manila at the uber 5-star peace and progress drama rehab. It’s minutes before they’re supposed to check out but Kenya is still soaking up that last 5 minutes of attention whoring (see what I did there?! LOL) by wandering around the pool in a bikini showing her butt crack to maximum Maxim. What was it Krayonce was screaming about coochie and butt crack? Anyway — that’s all in the past – she wants us to conveniently forget all of her past indiscretions. Hey I will, I want to, let’s move ON! However, if Kenya wants to show Porsha Williams that while she is the one dressed like a THOT on instagram, Kenya was a THOT of the oldschool on such magazines as STUFF and FHM, I’ll go along.
Kenya twirls back to her suite, escorting Claudia Jordan and Cynthia Bailey, the smoke in her tilt-a-twirl’s line of fire. There they discuss the marvel of Phaedra finally talking to Kenya! Claudia secret-smiles over how amazing she is for bringing peace to the group, then our simpering sycophant tells Kenya how much she deserves the apology for all she has put-up with. OK, seriously?
On this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta the tepid steps were taken towards resolution in the longtime feud between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks! Kenya admits she’s surprised by Phaedra’s willingness to finally hear her out, meanwhile Phaedra is dishing on hopefully resolving issues with Kandi Burruss.
Admitting she was “very surprised” Phaedra finally agreed to have a conversation with her, Kenya is hopeful she will be embraced by Phaedra as easily as NeNe Leakes was despite all of their issues! Kenya is also hoping for an apology for all the “whore-mongering” – and she credits herself for tirelessly trying to mend things with Phaedra for the change in tides. “I think it’s always good to honestly talk with an open heart and listening ear. It takes too much energy to hold onto the past,” explains Kenya.
“It was confusing to all to see how easily Phaedra forgave NeNe for calling her the head doctor, never acknowledging she even knows her, and calling her dirty besides a few other things,” Kenya reflects. “Yet she has refused to apologize to me or to forgive me after countless attempts to reconcile on my part.”
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!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are continuing the family business of reality TV! According to reports the couple has inked a deal and has been quietly filming a spinoff about their blended family drama called ‘Meet The Tuckers‘!
Married life has not been easy for Kandi and Todd from Mama drama, to combining a household with their two teenaged daughters while also trying to build a production business as a couple. The couple has also dealt with the sudden passing of Todd’s mother Sharon. All of the mishaps, mayhem, and family planning has been featured on Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras and the couple’s previous wedding spinoff Kandi’s Wedding.
Kandi has seemed over the drama on RHOA this season and she hasn’t really engaged with co-stars instead focusing on her own family, including counseling with Todd, probably because her spinoff deal was in the works all along!
“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!”
