Kandi explains why she was so teary and emotional when she talked with Phaedra. “I had a lot going on at the time. Yes, I was upset about my play being cancelled, but I also had some personal family things that I was dealing with as well. So I guess I was just extra emotional. It probably wasn’t the best time to go talk to her, but I was wondering what was going on with our friendship that she had to discuss it with NeNe and Porsha without ever mentioning to me that there was a problem. Watching this episode, it irritated me to see Phaedra try to brush off what was going on with me by saying that I was just upset about a bad business deal. I wasn’t upset about the money. There was a whole bunch of stuff that was going on with me that she didn’t take the time to ask about either. And now just because I didn’t text her every day, I’m a bad friend.”
On tonight’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, titled “Fix It Therapy,” the ladies pay a visit to Dr. Jeff so he can give them a few lessons on communicating and working through their copious issues!
Even thoughNeNe Leakes is the one who suggested therapy in the first place, and was warned by Dr. Jeff that he’d call her out too, NeNe freaks out when she is accused of causing a lot of the group’s issues. As a result, the very mature NeNe who expects everyone to act like grown women, storms out of the session and has to be chased down by the diminutive Dr. Jeff. Eep.
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.
Above: Gretchen Rossi shared, “Such a fun night with these beauties Leyla Milani and Asifa Mirza walking in the @pedramcouture fashion show! Thank you to @dressyourface for my amaze makeup and @henryzador for my fabulous hair last night! #Couture #Fashion #OverTheTopGlam #Bling #BigHair #GetGlamwithGretchen”
Kenya said the move didn’t surprise her at all. “Phaedra has always either told lies or diverted the attention from herself to someone else to avoid the truth being told about her,” she said. “Cynthia merely stated that Phaedra never fact checked prior to spreading Apollo’s lies about me. Phaedra had no response or defense, and thus she fled so she didn’t have to answer the obvious.”
I think it’s safe to say that no one is safe from rumors, backstabbing, or shade throwing on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta! Cynthia Bailey has been gossiping about Phaedra Parks’ alleged Mr.C chocolate cravings, and Phaedra is stirring the pot regarding Kandi Burruss’ loyalties. Phaedra has been venting to Porsha Williams about how she feels her friend is siding with Apollo because of his friendship with Kandi’s husband Todd. As for Kenya Moore, she’s just waving her Krayonce flag and twirling with delight not to be the this season’s main target, while NeNe Leakes channels her inner cruise director…on a boat ride straight into the heart of darkness!
Kandi, like her counterparts, seems to suffer from the innate inability to be able to dish it, but not so much take it. In the RHOA realm, “it” refers to any combination of whispers, scandals, and busy body chit-chat where the only applicable rule is “talk with me about anyone but don’t talk with anyone about me.” Sixth grade social rules in their most basic form, for sure!
Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s “Chocolate Tales” have taken on Willy Wonkian-proportions. Apparently no one fact checked their golden ticket to drama before dipping a toe into the chocolate river. Are Housewives required the same due-diligence as researchers when regarding inner-personal matters of distorted rumors? Can one rely on Apollo for any sort of “evidence” – particularly in regards to “texes.” Never fear - Dr. NeNe Leakes has the cure!
According to Cynthia, she simply brought up the affair situation because they were having a group “conversation” and she wanted to know if it was true. If Phaedra is involved with Prince Chocolatier from the ChocAfrica, she should have just admitted it! Cause they would all be so accepting and supportive, uh-huh.
Kandi Burruss hasn’t had too many issues with her co-stars yet this season. Most of her drama seems to be focused on husband Todd and her mother, Mama Joyce. That said, Kandi took a little heat from Porsha Williamsduring this week’s episode because she didn’t chase after Phaedra Parks fast enough when she ran out of the group dinner. Kandi addresses that and more in this week’s blog.
Kandi shares that she’s keep a wary eye on NeNe Leakes and her suddenly attentive behavior toward Phaedra. “Of course I’m skeptical. NeNe has been nice these last few months, but that does not make me forget the years of drama and insults that have come from her in the past. Yes, I get that people change, but it’s OK for me to proceed with caution as I would’ve thought Phaedra would. Well, hopefully things will continue to be great with them and NeNe can continue to be Phaedra’s rock.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta some ladies got served retribution and others got served a taste of their own medicine – and some ladies need to take a seat at the kiddie table because they cannot play with the big girls.
Phaedra has several burly bodyguards to keep her safe in a fortress of delusion, just in case “gone asunder” means lurking in the bushes, holding a drill in a menacing way. (Apollo is scary and we did see proof of holes in the wall. Yikes!) Good thing Phaedra has her preacher arrive with a vial of holy water to exorcise this home of its demons.
