The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
I feel like it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives reunion if one cast member didn’t pull the “bully” card for virtually no reason. After a season of pot stirring, rumor spreading, and straight up lying, Porsha Williams became the latest person to do this on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. To be honest it seemed like a last ditch effort to deflect from all of the trouble she got into this season.
Cynthia Bailey was obviously offended by Porsha’s bullying accusations. But then again the reunion could have been way worse for Cynthia. The other cast members are definitely struggling a lot more. Speaking of the struggle, pretty much everyone felt for Sheree Whitfield when she opened up about the abuse from Bob Whitfield. I still don’t get why she was not sympathetic toward Kenya Moore, but I guess that’s a slightly different situation.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
What can be said about the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion except that everyone hates each other? In Part 2, Andy Cohen put on his “compassion” mask, to make faces more concerned than usual, because the main topic was relationships. And on this show ain’t none of them going well!
My favorite thing was learning that Phaedra’s middle name is “Creonta!” GIRL, hi! Actually Girl HEEEELLLLOOO! What a name?! And then Phaedra names her sons Dylan and Ayden – like the two most normal little boy names ever? HA.
I was pretty excited to hear the news that Kim Zolciak will make an official return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, so I was looking forward to her Watch What Happens Live appearance- especially after her season finale confrontation with Kenya Moore. I wanted to see Kim reading Kenya and dodging questions from Andy Cohen about whether or not she got a nose job, but unfortunately Kim will not be on the episode tonight.
I don’t blame her though, Kim has a very legitimate reason for skipping this public appearance. Her son Kash was bitten by a dog and he had to go to the hospital.
We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
Before this Real Housewives of Atlanta season started, I felt like the show had the right cast. I couldn’t see any of these ladies getting the boot, especially Phaedra Parks. She’s a shade-throwing assassin, she has the cutest kids, she got burned by her husband, she wears racy outfits, she’s charitable. Basically she has all of the elements that make for a compelling Housewife, but am I the only one who feels like this four part reunion is her swan song?
She told some major lies this year and didn’t have to own any of her actions the entire season since Porsha Williams covered for her the entire time. Phaedra owes her a muffin basket or something to convey her gratitude. Nevertheless, now that all of the episodes have aired, Andy Cohen and her costars will be pushing Phaedra to present some receipts. Unfortunately, it does not seem like she actually has any and she might be totally screwed.
