Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss has always been one of the more mild-mannered, level-headed, successful in her own right outside of Bravo members of the franchise. Sure, she likes to stir the pot every now and then, but she usually remains impartial and even tempered.
I was hoping we'd get to watch Kandi enjoy her engagement to fiancee Todd Tucker on this season. It would be a nice change of pace from Kenya Moore's fan foolishness and her overexposed text triangle with Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida. Alas, even Kandi's story line is tainted with negativity. I'd say she should leave the drama to her mama, but unfortunately, that's exactly what's happening!
The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are having serious family problems this year. Luckily for us they still manage to throw shade and keep up the witty commentary.
Phaedra Parks and Apollo are still having married people problems. Problems that come when one of said married persons chooses to possibly allegedly perhaps send illicit texts to a person whom they are not married to. Made even worse when the sext recipient is said wife's booticious enemy!
Phaedra and her entourage are headed to Alabama where she attends mortuary school and is studying for exams. Speaking of the dead, Phaedra leaves Apollo with dead silence since they are not speaking. In Phaedra's study group she talks all things Phunerals by Phaedra including that a good week for Willie Watkins has 15 funerals and she assists.
Phaedra is considerably more real this season; like she seems to be less of the contrived Miz Parks, Southern Belle-nonsense and more like, 'I'm about to bury my husband and forget to embalm his manbits!'
The infamous sexting scandal of Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to grow! In fact every single time one of the players speaks on the matter the story changes…
Right after Kenya Moore insisted Apollo Nida is a liar and could be using her as a fence to cover up a possible affair with another woman, Apollo is defending his interactions with Kenya as strictly business!
Apollo claims he was only communicating with Kenya over a proposed business deal which makes even less sense considering Kenya was producing a product in direct rivalry to his wife Phaedra Parks!
Oh the holidays. A time to reflect on all we are thankful for. And I suppose I'm thankful for all the crazies reality TV brings to my life. Better them than me, right?! It's also a time for the joy of giving. And reality stars have given us so much. So, so much insanity!
In order to show our appreciation to the fabulous famewhores who give our TVs life, we decided to promote some of the products they ceaselessly churn out!
Sometimes NeNe Leakes says the most ridiculous things, but her outlandish statements–a la "Close your legs to married men, WIG!"–are always spot on. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is nothing if not honest…well, at least when it comes to hilariously calling out her co-stars.
Kenya Moore is facing some serious heat from Phaedra Parks for her "whorish tendencies". And Kenya being Kenya she is not taking Phaedra's insults lightly.
Denying all of the allegations leveled against her the Real Housewives of Atlanta star insists that Apollo Nida is a liar and Phaedra is refusing to accept the truth. That truth being that Apollo is up to no good but Kenya isn't the lady he's up to no good with!
"Apollo could not get his lies straight," Kenya decrees in her Bravo blog. "LIE #1: Phaedra told everyone (Kandi, Cynthia, and Porsha) on several occasions that I offered fellatio to Apollo. Once again, Phaedra launched a slander campaign to paint me as a whore. Kandi [Burruss] confirmed the texts were platonic. She looked like the fool she is when Apollo actually said point blank that I never offered sex of any kind to him."
Things naturally begin at a sex swing lesson. Kenya (rocking some leggings so tight I swear they had to be surgically removed and coochie crack was as well as booty crack imminent) has all her faux assets on display as she swings upside down. 'Weeeeeee! I'm gone with the wind fabulous!' she's cheering to herself when Kandi Burruss walks in.
Speaking for the masses, Kandi announces she is over Gone With The Wind Fabulous: "The wind is gone. It's blown away." Amen. Kandi demures participating in sex swinging because she sprained her ankle falling off some heels. The real reason for this meet up is investigative journalism. Kandi wants to know the true nature of Kenya and Apollo's texting. Or was it sexting…
A Mother's Love, which is based loosely on Kandi's own life, debuted at Atlanta's Rialto Center for the Arts on Friday. "Though things are exaggerated, you will see moments of my life in the musical," Kandi tells BroadwayWorld.com. Kandi is both the writer and the star of the play which also features a bevy of musical heavyweights.
"Writing A Mother's Love has been therapy for me in many ways. I've had to focus and not only co-write the script which is loosely about my life but have also written twenty (20) songs for the play in a very short amount of time which has allowed me to unload a lot of emotions inside of me," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star explains. The title is ironic given Kandi's own recent issues with her mother Joyce who openly disapproves of her relationship with Todd.
A Mother's Love is the story of a complicated relationship between a mother and daughter, focusing on a mother's difficulty to let her daughter make choices in her own love life. Hmmm… semi-autographical, Kandi? Or basically this is your life!
