Last night was the conclusion of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. And it was a whirlin', twirlin', spinning time. There were more lies, half-truths, and defense mechanisms swirling around that stage than in the eye of a tornado. And I'm dizzy.
A certain someone in a yellow dress needs to sit down and get her twirl out of Andy Cohen's face. Lord knows that may have been the closest he's ever been to a lady's anatomy.
Things begin with recapping Kim Zolciak's exit from the stage (and the show!). She texted NeNe Leakes a bevy of glowing compliments. In exchange NeNe wishes her well and calls her out on the wig pieces she was trying to pass off as her "real hair". Wig shade never ceases to amuse me. I call Kim's clip-in beehive "Marge".
Famewhore puppetmaster AndyCohen (who may or may not be taking over the world in a devious plot to inundate society with faux-blonde, surgically altered, fembots who'd do anything for their 15 minutes) recently did an interview where he talked all things Housewives.
Andy continued to insist the Housewives franchise wouldn't be adding any locations – at least not at the present time – and dished on why some ladies break-out into spinoff territory.
"Well, I mean, I always say 'Never say never,'" the WatchWhatHappensLive host tells TheWrap about extending the Housewives map. "But, I think we're pretty good and I still do think we are pretty good. I mean, we've got six going and it's great."
As suspected it appears there is more than meets the eye. Many also asked if these were half-sisters from her mother or father's side, but apparently it's NeNe's mom. And possibly they aren't half-sisters at all but full sisters! Goodness I'm confused. Anyway, here's the latest.
One of NeNe's sisters, Kendle, hopped on her personal Facebook page following the reunion and threatened to expose the real reasons she and NeNe have not spoken in 8 years. NeNe said her sisters want a relationship with her now, and rumors have been abound that she is reconciling with them for a Bravo wedding special.
NeNe accused Phaedra of being in cahoots with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield, with Phaedra seeming like the mastermind because she had a previous acquaintanceship with NeNe's sisters. NeNe was furious and Phaedra was oddly demure, which seemed like an omission of guilt. I've heard gossip about this situation for two years now and I have my own opinions (OPINIONS, people) which I'll share below, but let's hear some alleged behind-the-scene scoops on what went on!
Yesterday was part 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. This segment was all about Wigs Zolciak. And if I had a dollar for all the Kimscuses she makes, I could buy me one of them foreclosed dream homes everyone is talking about!
Phaedra Parks is apparently big news this season. We spent a ton of time running down her shenanigans and she seemed relatively composed for all the heat she took. It's clear the only person Phaedra has extreme distaste for is Kenya Moore.
Things begin with a spotlight on NeNe Leakes, cause just in case you didn't know, she has AAAA-RIVED! Andy Cohen wonders if NeNe plays favorites and takes sides, case in point she seemed to dislike Phaedra andKandi Burruss almost instantly. NeNe claims she never does that, Kandi reminds her that actually she does! We all know she does. NeNe likes people she can control and manipulate. And if it's apparent they don't need her or aren't going to bow down to her greatness, she goes all sour on them. So there's no need for her to even bother denying that!
Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kenya Moore lived in the hot seat this reunion as she got it from all the ladies (even Andy Cohen!), so that must explain why she was constantly fanning herself. Reunions By Krayonce!
This whole reunion could be photo-capped with the fantastic facial expressions of both Phaedra Parks and Krayonce. Everybody knows a picture is worth 1000 words. Both ladies threw shade at each other up one side and down the other, but Phaedra and her legalese definitely trumped Miss WHO-S-A. Sorry!
Kenya brought two accessories besides a full arsenal of nonsense: a fan and illusion netting. Illusion netting!
Girl was also shades of radioactive orange not found in nature that only seemed to glow more and more ominously as the snark got heaped on her in spades. Kenya was twisting like a tornado trying to twirl her way out of the insults. As Phaedra pointed out, that fan was a weak defense and she better have something stronger if she wants to battle!
