Anyone remember when Phaedra Parks went to Mortuary College and we all assumed it was a passing fancy? It turns out the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is very devoted to her work with the deceased and presently juggles Phunerals by Phaedra alongside her law practice. (BTW: I made up the name Phunerals By Phaedra – it’s not an actual company).
“The funeral business is really an overnight and weekend business. Saturday is the funeral day for people of color, usually,” Phaedra explains. “And of course, the courthouses and law firms are closed on Saturdays.”
Y’all. Y’all. Is it just me, or is Kenya Moore vying to be the most hypocritical housewife in the history of housewives? In asking that question, I am not even taking into consideration the fact that Krayonce has never been a wife, because we all know that’s not a prerequisite with Bravo!
After her grand showing on the reunion, where she received more shade from Andy Cohen than I’ve ever seen him dole out, Kenya is back teasing fans about a potential pregnancy and calling out co-star Phaedra Parks for shaming her skin tone. Note to self, it’s fine for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star to talk smack about anyone and everyone, but it’s certainly not okay for any of her cast mates to retaliate. What’s that old adage about not dishing it if you can’t take it? Just kidding! Those rules don’t apply to twirling!
I don’t know why I’m taking it personally, but the breakdown of Kandi Burruss’ and Phaedra Parks’ friendship feels like the end of an era in some sort of cosmic way! The real tragedy is how much these two Real Housewives of Atlanta stars still care about each other, but can’t seem to find common ground. And how a felon man ultimately came between them (thanks, Apollo!).
Kandi admits that she gets emotional when discussing her disintegrating friendship with Phaedra, as she did on part one of the RHOA reunion. “I get frustrated having these conversations in front of everyone. I do care about our friendship. That’s why I’m emotional about it. And because I care, I still won’t say certain things that would make her look bad. Even though I feel like I’ve been made to look like the bad guy.”
Last night was part one of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion. Phaedra Parks was most certainly on the hot seat. That must explain why her gown was bathed in golden embers! When Phaedra wasn’t being bathed in the fruits of her shade, Kenya Moore was being read for the filth by everyone – even Andy Cohen! And I have to say YES, Bravo, YES! Finally and thank you. It was time.
So it begins with the drama that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends… between Phaedra and Kenya. Phaedra is deemed the shadiest of them all, but some people aren’t appreciative of such witticisms. Like Kenya “Oatmeal Pie Face” Moore. She complains that Phaedra was “attacking” her looks, therefore putting down all women and their respective chocolate-ness.
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Y’all. I for real cannot get the image of Kenya Moore as the Grinch out of my head. Krayonce’s epic holiday costume on the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta is sure to haunt my dreams. It was truly amazing. That said, there has been some over-the-top drama in the show’s eighth season, and I’m sure the reunion is going to be just as insane.
In the meantime, Kandi Burruss is treating us to her take on the return of NeNe Leakes, the downfall of her friendship with Phaedra Parks, and those pesky rumors about newbie Kim Fields’ husband. Yikes! Kandi addresses the visit the FEDs paid to her home to collect some of Apollo Nida’s things and reveals her initial concern that the reunion would be dull. With this crew? Never!
