I’m not gonna lie: I love me some WhoGonnaCheckMeBoo!Sheree Whitfield and was thrilled to see her back on the Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, even if it was in a diminished capacity as “friend of” the cast. Sheree says she loved being back too, calling this season of RHOA her favorite ever. Whether it’s moving toward reconciliation with ex-hubby Bob Whitfield, keeping the drama on a low simmer rather than a steady boil, or just looking totally fabulous (which she decidedly does!) this season, Sheree calls it all a “full circle” moment for her. Aww, man! Give the girl her dang peach back already, Bravo!
In her blog, Sheree first fills us in on her situation with Bob: “Bob and I are working on getting to know each other again. We both have grown a lot and are in a different space than we were when we were married. We are in the process of relearning each other. I can say that we are happy with how things are going and our children our happy. #LifeIsGood for #TheWhitfields.”
Case in point: when asked what she thought about Porsha Williams‘ outfit for the Christmas party, Kim says, “Thought the costumes were fun and cute for the grown and sexy Christmas soirée.” Yeah, “fun” and “cute” isn’t really in line with the judgmental glances Kim was giving Porsha while filming.
For Kandi and Todd it has been a shocking couple of years filled with extreme ups (getting married, finally getting pregnant) and extreme downs (Mama Joyce, Todd’s mother Sharon passing away unexpectedly, and Kandi losing her friendship to Phaedra). A year after Sharon’s death, with Kandi having only 5 weeks to go until baby Ace arrives, they visit Sharon’s grave. Her tombstone reads, “A great mother and the life of the party.”
After returning from her visit with Apollo, Phaedra is in the mood to do something fun and festive. She decides to celebrate the holidays by throwing an over-the-top Christmas party. I do love Dwight and his undercover shade.
Kandi, who looks amazing, says, “The baby is awesome and life is good.”
RuPaul admits that he loves Kenya Moore dressed as The Grinch. “I thought she stole the show,” he shares. “You gotta love it. You gotta love a freak. I think Kenya‘s freak meter is about an 11.”
When asked about Matt and Kenya together, Kandi says, “They seem happy. He is different than what I would have thought she would have fallen for. He is a nice guy, don’t get me wrong, I just wouldn’t have seen them together.”
Beginning with the drama in Jamaica, Kandi is relieved she wasn’t because of the negative comments about Kim Fields‘ husband! “I’m glad I wasn’t apart of that. I hate when people talk about my husband so I definitely didn’t want to be a part of anything sayin’ something about hers.”
Above, Kandi shares a photo from tonight’s finale.
Everyone has returned safely and soundly from Jamaica. Well, safely if you don’t count gushing emotional wounds! But, at the very least, everyone is trying to move on from the traumatic trip by focusing on the positives in their lives. For Kim Fields that means doing what she does best: Keeping it professional.
After being re-inspired (HA!) by directing Cynthia Bailey‘s ‘mercial, Kim has a Skype meeting with Art, her longtime agent, to discuss the future of her directorial career. Art wants examples of Kim’s recent projects to use as a reel for other clients – including a new TV show. Please Lord do not tell me Kim is considering the CB Eyewear ‘mercial a legit indicator of her abilities!?
I’m surprised Porsha found herself seated so close to Andy Cohen. Even though she had plenty of drama with Cynthia Bailey early on through most of the season she’s been staying out of it. Most of the mayhem this season has been between Kenya Moore and Kim Fields.
