Claudia Jordan has a new place. She wanted to live in a high-rise condo to hang onto her NYC roots and she apparently hit-up Kim Zolciak‘s yardsale to buy a collection of red Solo cups because she has no dishes or furniture to speak of. Claudia isn’t proud – she knows we’ve all spent many a’day sippin’ on Maddog 20/20 like this was 1993 and we’re in a Coolio video. Claudia invites Kenya Moore over to show off the new place, but then immediately puts her to work assembling iKea furniture while chugging wine out of said Solo cups. Kenya’s all like I didn’t wear my only pair of Louboutins for this. Then she wonders if Claudia has been buying her Louboutins from a Made In Hong Kong authentic discount site and painting the soles red herself. I mean, the only red bottoms that seem authentic in Claudia’s place are the cups!
Later Claudia and Kenya go to the gym under the pretense of Claudia getting her own stallion booty. Why doesn’t she just ask for the name of Kenya’s Mexican butt doctor? Claudia grew up with an Italian immigrant mother and a black father from NYC. Her dad left when they were kids and she doesn’t have much of a relationship with him.
Kenya Moore has been the victim of Apollo Nida‘s lies for years over sext-gate. After initially saying she wanted to apologize to Kenya for calling her a “whore” based on Apollo’s tales of cheating, Phaedra Parks has now placed Kenya at the bottom of her priority list. But has Kenya decided to forgive her anyway?
A source says that although Kenya no longer feels anger towards Phaedra, and accepts that Phaedra was reacting to Apollo’s lies, but she still hopes to receive an apology. Apparently it’s a matter of principle to the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star. “She’s tired of all the lies and the scorn that Apollo has caused,” an insider close to Kenya explains. “Now that Apollo has come clean and told Kenya face-to-face that he lied about her, she instantly forgave him. She no longer harbors any hatred in her heart for him.”
“When Phaedra learned of Apollo’s admission of his lies, she immediately said she owes me an apology. Yet, after her spa day, NeNe asserted that Apollo’s lie was a lie citing that Apollo is likely trying to hurt Phaedra,” said Kenya. “This rationale makes no sense. I am the last person to attempt to understand how Apollo’s mind works – but if I were going to prison for eight years and my only lifeline is my wife, why would I try to hurt her?” Um, because Apollo is selfish?
One thing Cynthia doesn’t understand is that if NeNe Leakes is over their friendship, why does NeNe keep bringing her up? “Kandi invited Phaedra and a couple of the ladies for a spa day. Kandi’s intention for this gathering was to give Phaedra a day of relaxation and a well-deserved break. With that said, I found it odd to be the main topic of conversation. One minute I’m irrelevant, and the next minute I am the focus of the universe,” Cynthia wonders.
“Prior to our lunch date I had already heard that Claudia had attended Cynthia’s magazine release party. She wanted to help Kenya’s efforts in denying bullying me and provoking me in the past,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star says.”However, despite me knowing that I decided to make the effort and have lunch with a fellow co-worker who seemed cool.”
About Porsha blowing her off, Claudia said, “I was surprised when I saw the shade at work, because before I moved to Atlanta, Porsha and I had hung out a few times in NYC and Miami and we have always had a good time.”
“I’m just the type that believes in at least trying,” Claudia said about reaching out to Porsha. “And I’m also not the type of woman that can ever be influenced to like or not like someone else based on anyone else’s opinion or experience. Maybe because of my journalism roots, but I like to see and find out for myself. I could never have another grown woman put a battery in my back or a thought in my brain. That is the ultimate fail.”
Sharon suffered what is believed to be a stroke on Monday, and was found in her NY home before being rushed to the hospital. She unfortunately lapsed into a coma yesterday afternoon, with Todd by her side, before passing Tuesday night.
“Today has been a tough day. Our family has suffered a terrible loss. Sharon was the best mother in-law! She was fun, energetic, loving, & caring. I loved how she liked to get up & go all the time,” Kandi said in a statement. “She would get you in check one minute & give you a hug the next minute. She still had a young spirit. It’s unbelievable that she’s gone.”
Y’all remind me to stay off of Phaedra Parks’ bad side! Geez Louise, she throws so much shade, she’s like a Ray-ban/parasol/beach cabana hybrid. Even those with the palest of complexions have no need for sunscreen if Phaedra is talking smack about them! Granted, she’s got pretty good reason to exercise her razor tongue thanks to her soon to be incarcerated husband.
Unless you’ve been on an all things Real Housewives of Atlanta sabbatical (and why would you want to do that?), you know that things between Phaedra and Apollo Nida are strained…to put it mildly. In my opinion, he’s a giant douchebag (pardon my French), who is now taunting his wife with his lying (or his lying about lying) about sexting with Kenya Moore. Of course, Phaedra reserves her harshest criticisms for Krayonce.
