I’ve never been shy about the fact that I like whatKenya Moore brings to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. That said, just because I find her special brand of crazy entertaining, doesn’t mean I agree with everything she does and says. Kenya took to her blog to break down this week’s episode, and to be honest, I think she totally missed the mark on two of the three storylines she touched on.
Despite the fact delusion that Kenya and Kim Fields have so much in common and, you know, Hollywood has been so good to both of them, they didn’t exactly hit it off.
“I have worked with Kim in the past, when I was a guest star on the ’90s sitcom Living Single and later on Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns,” shared Kenya. “We joked about how shady she was to me back then during our meeting. I was a bit taken aback at the side eyes and shade she threw my way. As far as now, she was very reserved and subdued, a far cry from the fun and feisty character she played in the ’90s.”
Kenya acknowledged that Kim threw her “a lot of shady looks” when she asked her to help direct Life Twirls On. “I wasn’t expecting that,” she admitted. “In the coming weeks, you’ll see if it’s a good fit or not.”
It’s hardly a mystery, as Kenya‘s opinion of Kim turned sour, “You know, some people are made for reality TV and some people aren’t. I mean, you have to be kind of interesting, right? I don’t [find her interesting].” OUCH!!
A caller asks Kenya why she felt the need to attack Sheree week one.
“I don’t think I went hard on Sheree,” says Kenya “who me?” Moore. “I think that I was just answering the questions that were asked. Even on this episode, we saw Kandi [Burruss] talking about Porsha [Williams]‘s guy dating some transgender. We’ve heard girls talk about other girls and deliver the news. I was just delivering the news. You cannot blame me for that.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicked off the premiere this week by diving right into the video of Peter Thomas that surfaced (a little too coincidentally) right as filming started for the new season. Cynthia Bailey shares in her blog this week that the situation has been painful to deal with.
Cynthia explained, “It was extremely difficult dealing with the video of Peter. No woman (or man for that matter) expects (or hopes) to see her or his spouse appear to be cheating or having an indiscretion in a video. Especially one that has gone viral! How would one prepare for this? I was confused, shocked, hurt, and humiliated at the same time. Then I just became pissed at Peter for his recklessness, inconsideration, and carelessness. Of course I let Peter have it. I was furious! Peter and I are in the public eye, so in addition to dealing with this personally, I had to deal with it publicly as well. I had to dig deep, and ask myself a lot of heavy questions about my relationship and whether or not it would survive.” I’m not sure I’d call the reality blogs “going viral” but whatever…

Perennially struggling business owner Peter Thomas has been hit with yet another eviction notice for non-payment. After moving Bar One in the wake of financial issues and delaying the reopening indefinitely, Peter and his business partner/wife Cynthia Bailey are already behind on rent!
Court documents seeking to evict Peter and Cynthia’s Bar One demonstrate that the Real Housewives Of Atlanta couple owed $1869 for back rent and fines on the Auburn Avenue location. Bar One Atlanta moved locations last year and has been promising a reopening since January 2015 – but in fact the bar has never actually opened its doors! Instead Cynthia and Peter have just been renting the space while ostensibly renovating and apparently they’re running out of money.
Apparently ‘Check My Charges’ Marlo Hampton now fits the Real Housewives Of Atlanta brand just like Sheree “She By SheBroke” Whitfield does! How the mighty have fallen. Despite promises of revamping Atlanta Housewives, Bravo decided, instead, to turn back time by returning BOTH Marlo and Sheree for season 8 – and they’re already fighting up a storm but not with each other… (Yet).
The new season of RHOA finally – officially – kicked off filming because NeNe Leakes‘ abrupt departure put the show in a tailspin. Reports from sources close to production say that Sheree has finalized her Bravo contract and is returning as a full time Housewife!
