Well, Real Housewives Of Atlanta started out nicely, didn’t it? Of course, after Jesus fixed things up nice, it went straight down to hell in a hand basket over dinner! Get your prayer cloths and holy water to the fires, y’all!
I, for one, loved seeing Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore get their glamour and their good intentions on to drive to Detroit in a vintage convertible, letting the shade fly out the window like one of Kenya’s alleged weaves. Phaedra and Kenya are about to spend a week roughing it with children affected by the Flint water crisis at summer camp.
Kenya Moore returns home from Charlotte, to find her house vandalized. It seems MattJordan is made of magic carpets, because after driving ALL night to Charlotte where he harassed Kenya at Club One, he turned right around and drove all night back to ATL to smash in Kenya’s garage windows, sprinkle (was that juice? blood? droplets of rage?), break her car window and her back door, and spray paint over her security cameras. Dang – hell hath no fury like a man scorned.
Clearly there is no love lost between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars and former besties haven’t been exactly tip-toeing around their true feelings for one another this season and Kandi‘s new blog confirms that. She addresses the Johnnie situation/lawsuit and blasts Phaedra.
On Johnnie‘s Instagram slam, Kandi confesses she was floored he was referring to her. “I was wondering who he was talking about, because there were a lot of people in the picture, other friends of ours. I was really baffled, because we had just paid his event company to do our convention and as far as I knew we were on good terms.”
I love how the RHOAeditors subtly alluded to these Kandi/Shamea lesbian rumors by randomly showing us a segment of Kandi’s employee talking about a Bedroom Kandi sex toy for lesbian couples. I cannot be the only one who picked up on this? Since when does the show highlight Kandi’s products – aside from when she self promotes? But anyway, thankfully we had Sheree around to stir the pot and let Phaedra and Kandi know what they were saying about each other.
On the other side of the spectrum, freed from the clutches of one felonious fool, Phaedra Parks is happily clutching her pearls while smirking the good fortune that has fallen into her lap. Or into her law office, rather, and it’s not a bomb threat this time. And Porsha Williams continues her travels backwards in maturity by sneaking her boyfriend into her mom’s house for a little late-night nookie (with Yoni balls).
Call me naive, but I had no idea that Cynthia Bailey had breast implants until the last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode when she had that super weird breast exam party with the entire cast in the doctor’s office. Sure, exploiting cosmetic procedures for a social occasion is nothing new for reality TV, but this was odd. Yet, the most significant scene for Cynthia’s storyline didn’t even have her in it. Yes, I’m talking about that emotional heart to heart between Cynthia‘s daughter Noelle Robinson and soon-to-be-ex-husband Peter Thomas.
Peter has been petty and nasty in the press, so I’m truthfully kind of surprised that Noelle wants to hang with him still, but she has known him for many years, so I guess that makes sense. In her blog, Cynthia shares how she felt about these two meeting up for a hot yoga session and that serious discussion about how to continue their own relationship.
