Even though NeNe Leakes didn’t appear on Real Housewives of Atlanta at all this season, she has plenty of shade to throw and opinions to share in response to the epic four-part reunion. I’m not gonna lie, I felt like the first two episodes were kind of dragging on, but part three was truly epic.
My jaw dropped when Porsha Williams said that Phaedra Parkswas the one who told her that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tuckerwanted to drug and rape her. NeNe wasn’t too surprised by it though and she had plenty of tea to spill about Phaedra’s behind-the-scenes antics.
And of course, tacked onto the very tail end was the astounding revelation that, for some God-forsaken reason, Jesus, or possibly the devil put it into Phaedra Parks‘ prayer cloth that she should start a totally baseless rumor that Kandi Burruss is a secret lesbian menage-a-trois stalker who plotted to drug and rape Porsha Williams. Yep – fun times in libel-land from everybody’s favorite lawless lawyer!
Apparently earlier this year, Phaedra told poor, innocent, unsuspecting (Ha!) Porsha this lurid tale, then sat back on her donkey booty through the entire season to watch as Porsha defended herself and kept Phaedra’s confidences. And never, ever, not once, did Phaedra utter a word that it was SHE who started this rumor about Kandi. I’m sure Phaedra will handily dismiss it as “shade,” or something she heard ‘on the streets,’ then swat it away with her handbag, give herself a spritz of holy water then waltz into the church pew for some restoration. Except honey-butt: NO – you have burned the place down. Call Willie Watkins and fire up the band cause this big, ole fraudulent lie was your Phuneral By Phaedra!
The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
What can be said about the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion except that everyone hates each other? In Part 2, Andy Cohen put on his “compassion” mask, to make faces more concerned than usual, because the main topic was relationships. And on this show ain’t none of them going well!
My favorite thing was learning that Phaedra’s middle name is “Creonta!” GIRL, hi! Actually Girl HEEEELLLLOOO! What a name?! And then Phaedra names her sons Dylan and Ayden – like the two most normal little boy names ever? HA.
I never thought I would be so confused about whether a couple is divorced or not. It should be such a simple concept, but the split between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is anything but simple. It’s shaping up to be the messiest divorce in Real Housewives history. Not only that, but Apollo wants Phaedra to foot the bill – as if she wasn’t already carrying this family on her back.
Yes, there has been a lot of shadiness around Phaedra’s finances, love life, and plenty of other areas, but I still can’t help feeling bad for all of the Apollo-inflicted drama she and her cute sons have had to endure. If Phaedra has as much money as Apollo claims, she should throw some bills his way in exchange for him shutting his mouth. If LaLa Kent (of all people) can get people to sign non-disclosure agreements, then Phaedra (a lawyer) should do something similar. But that’s not the case and Apollo is calling Phaedra out…again.
Before this Real Housewives of Atlanta season started, I felt like the show had the right cast. I couldn’t see any of these ladies getting the boot, especially Phaedra Parks. She’s a shade-throwing assassin, she has the cutest kids, she got burned by her husband, she wears racy outfits, she’s charitable. Basically she has all of the elements that make for a compelling Housewife, but am I the only one who feels like this four part reunion is her swan song?
She told some major lies this year and didn’t have to own any of her actions the entire season since Porsha Williams covered for her the entire time. Phaedra owes her a muffin basket or something to convey her gratitude. Nevertheless, now that all of the episodes have aired, Andy Cohen and her costars will be pushing Phaedra to present some receipts. Unfortunately, it does not seem like she actually has any and she might be totally screwed.
