Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta no one wanted to grow up as they took good old fashioned road trips, flirted with the football players, and relived their glory days at Ridgemont High on the last day of senior year. Also, Cynthia Bailey wore a stupid hat in every scene. Are her edges thinning too?!
NeNe Leakes gets picked up at the airport by Greggum, her basement troll clamoring into the sunshine for the first time in weeks, sadly it’s an overcast day and he’s forced to linger in the parking garage until he catches sight of the shiny ring. Still – it is human contact! NeNe reflects on Puerto Rico and acknowledges that maaaaaaybe her comments to Claudia Jordan were crass and terrible, so she apologized. An apology Claudia did not want to take.
Then NeNe tells us her life used to be a Lifetime Movie and she worked her way through college stripping – basically living Kyle Richards’ dream as played by Tori Spelling circa 1992. Let’s just say, NeNe skipped English 101 in favor of studying Human Sexuality, which is how she knows about the amazing transitive powers of Clawdia’s clit.
Peter Thomas will never give up his quest for reality television relevance! The man who wishes more than anything on earth to hold his very own Real Housewives Of Atlanta peach is dealing with rejection by going forward to get his own spinoff show!
In the past Peter has expressed a desire to have a spinoff that chronicles his restaurants similar to Lisa Vanderpump‘s spinoff Vanderpump Rules. Unfortunately the difference is, other than Lisa being inherently likable, is that Lisa is able to keep a business OPEN and run it successfully. Peter, on the other hand, is routinely closing failed businesses and opening new ones! Such as the case with his newest venture Sports One, a sports bar and grill in Charlotte, NC which Peter opened with Kordell Stewart.
Peter and Cynthia Bailey recently posted casting notices for a new Sports One centered reality show on instagram.
Claudia is not holding back on the drama as she took on veteran NeNe Leakes while Kenya cheered “Yaaaaaas!” from the sidelines. The new ladies have to mark their turf, by digging in the story lines – much like cats scratching in a litter box!
Dropping some hints on this season is Executive Producer for RHOA, Carlos King. And by that I mean parroting the Bravo approved PR spin about how amazing the drama is for season 7. Hey – I’m riveted! Carlos is a big fan of Claudia joining the crew, because duh – she has like zero scruples about acting ratchet, so that makes for excellent TV. Hey – I’m riveted!
Even though your DVR claimed there was a two hour season finale of Real Housewives of Atlantatonight, it was really just an hour and thirty minutes long, topped off with an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Sneaky way to again claim RHOA's ratings as WWHL ratings, too? Anywhoo… Andy sits down one-on-one with Porsha Williams to chat about the reunion brawl with Kenya Moore and her abuse claims regarding Kordell Stewart and she calls Kenya out for lying about being the first black Miss USA winner.
Porsha says she's been in contact with Phaedra, Kandi and NeNe since everything went down, but she hasn't heard from Cynthia.
Andy wants to know what her cast mates had to say to her. "Phaedra was just really upset. These girls know me now at this point. I've been their friend for two years straight, so for them to see me act completely out of character and let Kenya win like that. That was the main thing, I was sorry that it had to reach that point, I was sorry that that was my reaction, but more than that I was sorry that I gave her the power to make me go and do something like that."
Kordell initially told Access Hollywood simply that Porsha's tales were false. As the story has spread, he was compelled to release a full statement to the media via his rep, slamming her for using him to try to stay relevant.
Kordell shared, "I married my wife because she was a Godly woman who had accepted her calling as a minister. The bright lights made Porsha lose her way. I no longer know the person she has become. I hope and pray she can turn her life around soon. I loved my wife, supported her and invested in her success."
Porsha sat down with Access Hollywood and claims that Kordell physically abused her during their marriage – more than once.
She explained, "The video ["Flatline"] does touch on domestic violence and some abuse I encountered in my marriage. It’s not exact to what I went through, because, honestly, what I went through was a little bit worse in some instances.”
