I don’t know why I’m taking it personally, but the breakdown of Kandi Burruss’ and Phaedra Parks’ friendship feels like the end of an era in some sort of cosmic way! The real tragedy is how much these two Real Housewives of Atlanta stars still care about each other, but can’t seem to find common ground. And how a felon man ultimately came between them (thanks, Apollo!).
Kandi admits that she gets emotional when discussing her disintegrating friendship with Phaedra, as she did on part one of the RHOA reunion. “I get frustrated having these conversations in front of everyone. I do care about our friendship. That’s why I’m emotional about it. And because I care, I still won’t say certain things that would make her look bad. Even though I feel like I’ve been made to look like the bad guy.”
Last night was part one of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion. Phaedra Parks was most certainly on the hot seat. That must explain why her gown was bathed in golden embers! When Phaedra wasn’t being bathed in the fruits of her shade, Kenya Moore was being read for the filth by everyone – even Andy Cohen! And I have to say YES, Bravo, YES! Finally and thank you. It was time.
So it begins with the drama that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends… between Phaedra and Kenya. Phaedra is deemed the shadiest of them all, but some people aren’t appreciative of such witticisms. Like Kenya “Oatmeal Pie Face” Moore. She complains that Phaedra was “attacking” her looks, therefore putting down all women and their respective chocolate-ness.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Y’all. I for real cannot get the image of Kenya Moore as the Grinch out of my head. Krayonce’s epic holiday costume on the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta is sure to haunt my dreams. It was truly amazing. That said, there has been some over-the-top drama in the show’s eighth season, and I’m sure the reunion is going to be just as insane.
In the meantime, Kandi Burruss is treating us to her take on the return of NeNe Leakes, the downfall of her friendship with Phaedra Parks, and those pesky rumors about newbie Kim Fields’ husband. Yikes! Kandi addresses the visit the FEDs paid to her home to collect some of Apollo Nida’s things and reveals her initial concern that the reunion would be dull. With this crew? Never!
There are blogs that entertain and blogs that inform. Blogs that gush and blogs that gloat. There are even blogs that change the game in one fell swoop (looking at you, Eileen Davidson!) by revealing a darker side of a reality star than we’ve previously seen. Phaedra Parks’blog, however, does none of these things. And so it is that she remains the Supreme Queen of Evasion and Deflection!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is under some scrutiny over her relationship with ex-bestie and costar, Kandi Burruss. More specifically, folks are wondering whether Phae-Phae made the call that caused the Feds to show up at both Kandi’s and Cynthia Bailey’s houses to confiscate items Apollo Nida was storing there. True to form, Phaedra addresses NONE of this mess in her blog, instead focusing on what a great party planner Dwight is – and how on point Kenya Moore’s costume was.
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.”
