Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKandi Burruss is hopping mad at co-starPhaedra Parks and did not mince words when she responded via Instagram and Twitter to some incendiary comments made by the attorney against her husband Todd Tucker. The Tuckers, who maintained a close relationship with Phaedra and her now incarcerated husband Apollo Nida have gravitated away from their once tight bond and all over a dispute surrounding the almighty dollar.
Apparently Todd, who is a television production manager, felt he was owed the remaining balance of $8,000 for a pregnancy video he worked on for Phaedra before Apollo’s imprisonment. Todd claims Phaedra never paid him in full and Phaedra insisted that he not only never completed the project but felt she did not owe him any more monies. Well the pair finally got together on last night’s RHOA episode to iron out any misunderstandings. Well after discussing the project and budget, Todd agreed to complete his part and Phaedra agreed, she would in turn, hand over a check to him but implied as an aside, that this will happen whenever she got around to it.
Over at Kandi Koated Kattiness Factory, Shamea Morton arrives with her Firkin tail between her legs after being caught by Don Juan gossiping at the video release party. Don Juan and Carmon stand watch while Shamea tries to explain what happened. Like no one was talking loud enough for so-called ‘bloggers’ to overhear their conversation until Don Juan inserted his extra fried crispy into the mess.
Don Juan cannot accept this. Don Juan has his Diva Cup inserted deep, spouts off about Porsha Williams being so stupid she doesn’t know what gossip is. Oh, I think that may be one of the only things Porsha does know!
About the status of her marriage,Cynthia shares, “One day at a time… we did just celebrate our five-year anniversary. It feels more like 20 years because we got married on the show. I feel like we’re super super married because we were married in real life, we were married on TV, we’re very married.”
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is planning to divorce Apollo while he is behind bars serving an 8 year sentence for fraud, even though she still has feelings for him. “I still love my husband, and I’ll always love him,” revealed Phaedra. “He’s the father of my children, and something great came from our union.”
Phaedra vows, “This has not tainted my view on love.”
TMZ is accepting collect calls from Federal Inmate Apollo Nida. Apollo answered questions about the status of his marriage (or rather, his divorce) from Phaedra Parks, staying in touch with his children, and relocating prisons. Apparently the new prison has better “ambiance”. Oh my…
Recently Apollo agreed with his Real Housewives Of Atlanta star wife that prison is no place for The Prince and Mr. President to visit. Now he’s changed his opinion.“For my own mental sanity, I tried to kind of recognize where she [Phaedra] was coming from, but I never agreed on the fact that I did not want to see my children.”
Kandi Burruss is always caught between a rock in a hard place! Just when Mama Joyce finally starts liking Todd, there’s drama between Kandi’s manager (and close friend) Don Juan, and her co-star and sometimes-buddy Phaedra Parks!
Phaedra and Todd have been at odds over money Phaedra reportedly owes him for a pregnancy workout video they made which was never released. Phaedra admitted to owing Todd the remaining $5k, but in a preview on the Bravo website the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star also argues she’s never SEEN proof of what Todd’s gotten done so far! Phaedra paid him $30k already.
Coming off my post-Christmas slump to deal with Real Housewives Of Atlanta makes me a bit cranky. Now I don’t know about y’all but I really don’t care if Phaedra Parks owes Todd Tucker money. I’d rather talk about Kandi Burruss rocking the h-e-double-hockeysticks out of over-the-knee sequined boots at 6 months pregnant. And I’d also like to discuss Kenya Moore‘s latest fake-a-date.
Kenya and Marlo Hampton hit the gym because this is totally 2000 and that’s where you meet men. Or cows. But not poopers. They’re playing with balls when James walks over to flirt with Kenya. James checks some of Kenya’s boxes: Tall, handsome, fit – but he’s too young and is but a mere personal trainer. They have a totally awkward, phony flirtation that results in a date. I was distracted by James smiling with his lip over his teeth and was waiting for them to expose scary teeth. But they weren’t scary at all.
Later Kenya and James meet to play basketball. Kenya wears a baby blue outfit to send subliminal hints that say, “Sperm donor.” Kenya isn’t sure if she wants a second date with James because he’s too young (and seriously this date was more awkward than one of those stupid male model photoshoots they always force uponAmerica’s Next Top Model contestants), but she’d totally turkey baste him in an alley, y’all!
I hope our Reality Tea family is enjoying a wonderful holiday week, with full bellies, fuller hearts, and a snarky outlook for what reality shows have in store for us in 2016! Real Housewives of Atlanta has had a crazy season thus far, and it can only get more insane after the most recent installment. Proving that no housewives can take a vacation without horrific drama, the RHOA ladies getaway to Miami was anything but fun, restful, or relaxing. In fact, it was downright hard to watch thanks to Tammy McCall Browning’s nephew Glen losing his shiz and slamming his aunt to the ground while trying to get to Kenya Moore after she told him to leave. Tugging on a wig is one thing, but battery is anything but entertaining. Take note, Bravo!
In her Bravo blog, Kenya espouses on the week’s episode with her own headlines, just in case you didn’t catch her theme. She begins, “MESSY–Many people accuse me of being messy. If you say something on a reality TV show with cameras recording you that you don’t want people to know about or ever repeat, don’t go on a reality TV show talking about people… Now that’s messy! You can call me messy, and at times I am. I own that. However, what I won’t do is look the other way when I see a potentially dangerous situation for myself, my friends, and cast mates.”
