I could not control my laughter when Porsha Williams gasped and over exaggerated in response to Marlo Hampton talking about the Kandi Burruss lesbian rumors after Sheree Whitfield spilled some tea to her in private. Porsha was a major part of that initial conversation and threw her best friend Shamea Morton under the bus in the process. It was hilarious when she tried to distance herself from that conversation while Phaedra Parks was sweating bullets hoping not to get called out as well.
Now, Porsha has decided that her dating life is off limits. This is pretty absurd given that she is a star of a reality show and doesn’t really have a story line (other than spreading other people’s business and denying her well-documented anger issues) and because she talks about everyone else’s romances and sexual dalliances. So, why should she get a free pass? Yeah, I can’t think of a reason either.
Over on the West Coast, the celebrities were flocking to Grammy parties. Tamar Braxton, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Erika Jayne, Kandi Burruss and many more were photographed at the main event and the pre-party celebrations.
Last night we learned a few important lessons, mostly that we should never ever let the Real Housewives of any ilk attempt the outdoors. Like nice try Phaedra Parks, but just like your maxi dress, the Real Housewives aren’t a right fit for tents.
Getting out of Atlanta is itself a travail after Porsha Williams has surprise invited her sister Lauren to act as a human security blanket against Porsha’s highly tuned rage. While Porsha and Kenya Moore argue about the merits of their communication styles, Prophet Parks interjects commanding them to STOP and to remember they are all strong personalities who act out. Constantly.
Yes, you read that correctly: this woman Sherien is going to appear on RHOA. And I’m sure that thirst and desperation has to aggravate Phaedra. Even as a viewer, I’m kind of annoyed that this woman is getting attention like this. But still, I can’t deny that I am dying for whatever tea she has to spill.
Phaedra Parks ruffled a few feathers during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live, dropping shady comments about the status of Apollo Nida’s engagement, claiming to not give one fig about the state of her friendship with Kandi Burrus and more.
Andy plays clips of NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore talking about Phaedra on past appearances of WWHL. Phaedra says, “It doesn’t really matter to me. But the good thing is when you’re in everybody’s mouth that must mean you’re doing something right girl.”
We’ve been ranking all the Real Housewives from every season, every franchise and its finally down to the final few. The queens of Bravo, if you will. Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of our ranking.
What separates a good Housewife from a great one? For me, it’s the longevity of their dramas. Will their actions or comments forever define a franchise as Teresa Giudice‘s table flip did for New Jersey, or NeNe Leakes‘ “Close your legs to married men, Wig!” on Atlanta? A great Housewife doesn’t necessarily have to be likable, but she does have to be memorable, and defining. When you think of a particular show which Housewife comes to mind.
