Last night was the season finale of a very, well, bizarre season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Thankfully we didn’t relive Lesbian-Gate – we’re saving that for the reunion – but we did witness the official end of Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss‘ friendship. Something else happened… Something big, I think… Oh what was it? Hmmmm… OH! Chateau Sheree. Yep, it’s up and running. Almost.
I am so thrown off by the previews for the Real Housewives of Atlanta finale with Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak arguing. They barely know each other. Kim left the show in the middle of Kenya’s first season of the show and she had a million kids since then, so I am confused by the animosity.
Nevertheless, I am pumped to see it all go down at Sheree Whitfield’s housewarming party. I’m kind of surprised that Kenya was even invited to that one, but maybe Sheree had to invite her for the finale? Then again, they did seem to put their nonsense on the back burner ever since the Bob Whitfield drama went down in Hawaii.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled parade of selfies and self-promotion for some Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles baby news.
Josh Altman shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “The greatest day of my life. April 3rd at 4:55pm Heather and I welcomed our amazing baby girl Alexis Kerry Altman into the world. Weighing 7lbs and 20 inches long, this angel is absolutely perfect. To experience the birth of your child is such a mind blowing event that is greater than anything I can describe. I’m so happy and so proud of my wife for handling this like a champ. Life has definitely changed in an instant, and gazing into my baby girl’s eyes, I can tell you it got much better.”
I have been eagerly waiting the Real Housewives of Atlanta season finale for what feels like forever. I want to see the “finished” version of Chateau Sheree and I am excited to see Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak going at it. Sure, I love the drama, but I can’t help being confused about why there’s animosity between the two of them.
Kenya joined the show during the same season when Kim refrained from most group activities because of her pregnancy before quitting in the middle of it. They had basically no interaction from what I’ve seen. So what is the source of tension there?
Let’s be honest – the only thing any of us remember from last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta is that Apollo Nida‘s prison fiancé Sherien Almufti appeared at the opening of the OLG Restaurant – and she’s everything a villainess side-chick should be. The worst (or maybe best) is that Phaedra Parks conveniently wasn’t even there to see her!
But first all the drama that came before.Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker – two control-freaks don’t make a restaurant! The OLG Restaurant is weeks away from officially opening and $100,000 over-budget, but Todd will not accept any help. He is the little man that could … and with his big forehead he thinks he can sneak traffic cone orange chairs right under Kandi’s nose. She is not impressed by his Todd: Party Of One attitude.
Case in point, Todd refuses to allow Don Juan or Carmon to help make decisions, even though there are no uniforms and the logo hasn’t been finalized with less than 24 hours before their soft opening for friends, family and television cameras. And don’t even get Kandi started on how the floor is so dusty it looks like it belongs inside Chateau Sheree!
The demise of Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks’s friendship is way more drastic than any of the romantic breakups I’ve seen in the Real Housewives franchise. These two went from being genuine besties to all out enemies with no boundaries when it comes to revealing private information or exacting revenge. So at this point, I’m not shocked that Phaedra met with Kandi’s former employee about a lawsuit against her.
Sure, Phaedra did turn over the case to another attorney, but she did film with the dude multiple times. It just seemed like filming those scenes was the reality TV version of posting a subtweet – the whole thing seemed so calculated and beyond passive aggressive. So obviously Kandi had a lot to say after watching the episode back.
It looks like Kenya Moore is going to have the last laugh in this situation. No matter how much Sheree Whitfield fronts about the baseboards in Chateau Sheree, no decorative feature is going to cover up the fact that there are well-documented financial issues surrounding the house.
Even though she (somehow) gets away with never addressing her financial situation on the show, Sheree is in (even more) trouble these days when it comes to financing her home – that she may or may not actually live in. She is “reportedly” facing $350,000 in tax liens.
A lot of people hate on Kenya Moore and I totally get it. She’s caused a lot of controversy on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but even her biggest haters have to feel some sympathy watching her tumultuous relationship with Matt Jordan play out this season. Kenya herself has admitted that she’s “ashamed” of her inability to break away from the toxic interaction.
Kenya opened up about watching that stairwell confession where Matt called her out for (allegedly) having sex with him in his truck (which she didn’t address, obviously). And on a lighter note, Kenya had nothing but praise for Cynthia Bailey and Sheree Whitfield’s kids after they walked the runway in the Cargo fashion show.
