NeNe Leakes and Tracee Ellis Ross (love her!) were guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. NeNe dished on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her take on the abusive relationship that seems to be happening between Phaedra and Apollo.
Andy asks NeNe what she thinks about Apollo’slast ditch attempt with claiming Phaedrahas cheated with a man named Mr. Chocolate. “First, I have to say I love the name chocolate. I don’t know whether Phaedra’s having an affair with a man named Chocolate or not. It was so strange that he was running around saying all that stuff. It’s sad. Look, I’ve been through a public breakup before and it’s really sad when you’re going through it and nobody is there to support you.”
And furthermore, if you are so upset that people are “unjustly” calling you a whore, and you don’t want women resorting to those insults, why is that the only insult you’re ever resorting to? These are real questions for Claudia, who calls herself a journalist. I’m investigating and I want answers.
It seems to me that it should be Porsha who is upset with Claudia, I mean I’d be pretty pissed if someone, for basically no reason, called me a prostitute on national television and then didn’t even have the proof to back it up. That’s some slanderous libelous hearsay and I am misusing legal jargon cause I got my law degree from the same $19.99 internet correspondence course that Phaedra Parks did. The one where long-term thinking and recidivism rates are like huuuuhhhh? The same legal school where they don’t teach you that marrying an ex-con exponentially increases the likelihood that you’ll be married to a prisoner at some point. What happens on air mattresses in the ghetto at 2 am renders one dumb and useless, I suppose!
Demetria reveals it was never her intention to get into with Phaedra Parks, but Phaedra started it by questioning her career, her relationship, and being rude – which obviously spiraled into a major argument during a recent cast trip to Puerto Rico. Likewise Claudia never intended to have issues with NeNe Leakes!
“When I started my conversation with Phaedra it was not supposed to go that far,” Demetria insists. “They were all on the other side of the table being mad disrespectful. I felt shade and I wanted to address it.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
In real time, Kenya‘s birthday was Saturday. Her blog suggests that she spent it with a new love interest. “This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.”
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.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to like Claudia Jordan on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta as much as I do. Granted, I teeter back and forth with every episode, but she’s growing on me…much like a benign, oozing, sore, but growing on me nonetheless. Who’s with me? The newbie shows no fear calling out NeNe Leakes, and she may (almost) make me find Kenya Moore to be not as Krayonce as I once thought…ALMOST. This week, Claudia tackles yet another housewives nightmare vacay, and I think she’s spot on in her assessments.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Claudia begins, “WHEW! What trip! First of all I’d like to thank Demetria [McKinney] for inviting us all down to Puerto Rico for her do-over. And honey, what a do-over it was! The rooms were cute and cozy, the weather was amazing, and the pina coladas were fantastic! And on top of all that I really got to know Demetria a little more, and I just adore her. And of course like always I had a great time with Kenya and Cynthia [Bailey]. Those two really know how to have fun, and I appreciate their laid back and easy going demeanor. Our time at the pool was fun — especially watching Kenya attempt to speak both Italian and broken Spanish to our bartender in an attempt to wrangle up some local cuties!”
In her blog, Demetria discussed the madness in Puerto Rico, her apology to Phaedra Parks, the double standard within the group, and her performance.
Real Housewives of Atlanta is all about that drama! “These girls, these girls, these girls! My performance is approaching quickly and we’ve had nothing but shade, shadows, and pearl clutching the whole time,” said Demetria. “Really?! We are in Puerto Rico, why be so nasty and so rude?”
