On last night's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, we dipped into the complex relationships of married couples having problems and the woman who decided it was her duty to help them out using shade, manipulation, and rompers. Kenya Moore, you benevolent soul!
Following the flip your coupledom dinner party, Kenya sits down with Miss Lawrence. She's just finished working out and is tucking into a big plate of fruit. "I have to take care of my figure and watch what I eat. I don't want to leave this trip looking like Phaedra." Phaedra Parkswho JUST HAD A BABY. Phaedra and Kenya need some new original material besides fat and slut zingers. Kenya also has to take care of her figure because African mysterio prince is her only man and errr… yeah.
Speaking of men she doesn't have, Kenya wants to coerce Apollo into a one-on-one so she can force him to admit he lied about the nature of their relationship. Kenya values honesty apparently. Except where her romantic relationships are concerned, then it's like, "Honesty? Who's that? We've never dated… "
She begins her Bravo blog, "Hello everyone! Welcome back to another drama filled episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta! Let’s jump right on in! Peter has always maintained a friendly relationship with all the men that he has been introduced to through the ladies. He is cool with all of them. He calls them whenever he feels like it and is happy to answer the phone when they call him — Apollo, Gregg, Todd, Kordell, and of course Walter. The men have their own relationships, and I think it’s great that they all get along. It's seems pretty ridiculous to assume that the guys would stop being cool just because they are no longer in a relationship with one of the ladies or are having issues with them.
Kenya Moore has crowned herself the Shade Queen and we have to admit that she may have earned that title this season and via her no-holds-barred blogs. In her newest blog, theReal Housewives of Atlanta star once again doesn't hold back about this week's episode, calling out her co-stars.
Kenya blasts NeNe Leakes, dishes on Porsha Stewart's beard situation with Kordell Stewart and talks about the apology she is expecting from Apollo Nida. Here are some highlights from this week's shady-palooza. She dishes a special brand of bitchy for Phaedra Parks.
She titles her first section "THE MOOSE IS ON THE LOOSE". "What grown woman threatens her friend to discontinue being friends with them because they don’t like him or her? I felt bad for Marlo, because she was always a good friend of NeNe’s and her biggest supporter and she really hurt her feelings. And the way she cursed out Cynthia who simply tried talking to her about Marlo… I thought her stripper days were behind her, but she is really showing her ass. They are both better off without her."
By that I mean, is she an evil genius or straight-up crazy? Kenya has orchestrated shade so elaborate it's like a 7-layer taco dip with extra cheese. It's deep and flavorful and frankly scary in its articulate complexity (Kenya IS Top Chef!). And there is no nacho chip to be left unturned.
Kenya has so many targets it's difficult to know if there's a safe-zone, but good lord is it crafty and thrilling to watch. If she is working at this alone, then I bow down to her as the true maestro of all Housewives. And if she's just full-scale nutty then NeNeLeakes better contact the authorities!
Overnight it seems Kenya Moore and Marlo have become tighter than Marlo's wardrobe. Although I don't think anyone would describe them as friends – more like thick as thieves because they are up to some plotting!
Reeling in the aftermath of Kenya's charity event in which NeNe was honored but not honored (nor honorable) NeNe admits to Gregg (aka Tagalong) that she turned into NayNay, her super-ghetto alter-ego who likes to go all PLONK! and circumstance. As he listens to his wife's tale of woe, Gregg is sipping coffee from a toilet-shaped mug. I can't help but wonder… Is Gregg's toilet mug an indication of the status of his life? He's flushed his integrity and self-respect down the toilet for fame.
Former (or is it current?) entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks appears on the March cover of Upscale Magazine alongside two other ladies of reality TV: Tameka Raymond (Atlanta Exes) and LaTavia Robertson (R&B Divas Atlanta).
In a quote about her experiences appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra explains that though the show may have ahem… scripted moments, the stars certainly aren't treated like actors!
“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays," Phaedra says of one of the glaring pitfalls of being on reality TV. "We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they're getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”
With federal investigators reportedly still digging up dirt on Apollo Nida's accomplices, a judge has granted his request to delay his fraud trial. Lucky, ducky now he has more time to make club appearances before heading to the slammer!
In court documents filed on February 10th the Real Housewives of Atlanta star asked permission to delay his trial until March. Apollo was to begin his trial this month, but he is seeking more time to go over the prosecution's case against him and likely decide whether or not he wants to accept a plea deal. The Judge granted his request.
