This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is messier than Bob Whitfield’s attempts at dancing and smoothie making, and we’re sure to see more of the drama on tonight’s new episode. Friendships are tested and tea is being spilled left and right. However, were any of these friendships actually genuine in the first place? If you’d asked me a few years ago, I would have predicted that Kandi Burrus and Phaedra Parks’ pairing would stand the test of time. They truly seemed to enjoy each other and have fun together.
Of course, we all know how that relationship has progressed! Thanks to all the not so subtle shade and Phaedra’s new alliance with Porsha Williams, the rift between Kandi and Phaedra seems to be widening…and Kandi wants fans to know she’s done staying quiet about it.
Well you know how a good reality star can never get enough camera time! In this week’s roundup of photos Phaedra Parks supports the Atlanta Falcons, Leah Messer swears she’s gotten her act together, and Brandi Glanville gets intimate.
“Monday is the least favourite day of the week for many people,” continued Julie, “But Blue Monday… well, it’s considered the worst Monday of them all. The party season is over, we may have already broken our resolutions, our bank account is in the red, and if you live in a cold climate for the month of January… the grey days don’t help either. Blue Monday is considered the most depressing day of the year. Yikes.”
Below you’ll find Kathryn Dennis dealing with her own blues, and more!
The last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was a big one for Phaedra Parks. We saw her getting along with former nemesis Kenya Moore to give back to the kids in Flint, Michigan. As moving as it was to watch these two genuinely making a difference, the viewers were brought back to reality when Porsha Williams and her anger issues took center stage at a group dinner.
It’s pretty ironic that Phaedra’s bestie was the one in the middle of the controversy during an episode that should have been a happy one about Phaedra’s philanthropy. SMH, Porsha. All Phaedra wanted to do was gather the women to plan a camping trip and then shit really went awry.
In her blog, Cynthia celebrates her move to the lake house and wonders why things got “so dramatic” at Phaedra Parks’ dinner. Cynthia begins by discussing her time as Kandi Burruss’ house guest: “I had a really fun time staying with Kandi. Although she didn’t seem that happy to see me when me (and my Fruit Loops) first I arrived at her house, we ended up having the best time. We spent hours laughing, talking, and watching movies.”
To be honest, it’s hard to tell when Porsha Williams is reaching for a story line on Real Housewives of Atlanta and when her drama on the show is actually genuine. I guess that’s actually tough to figure out with pretty much every reality show, but it honestly did seem pretty random for Porsha to want a baby with her former flame, but she had no desire to actually date him. However, Porsha says she’s serious about wanting to be a single mother and on another note, she really wants her BFF Phaedra Parks to go from being a single mom to a mother in a relationship.
Porsha talked about her desire for motherhood in an interview with Bravo.com. Porsha explained why she views being a single mom differently than most people might. She said, “I’ve made sure I have a great support system. I’ve worked very hard financially to secure a future for a child. It’s just something that I want now.”
Kandi Burruss is getting a lot of heat this season for sharing her opinions, but I feel like it’s about time she opens up after staying quiet for so long. Don’t get me started on her Kandi Koated Clique, but I do think she is usually in the right when it comes to standing up to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. And to be honest, Porsha was out of control during the last episode when she went off against Kandi and Kenya Moore. It sure does not seem like Porsha stuck with those anger management classes.
Kandi doesn’t seem to care about that drama though. I feel like she’s just on RHOAto collect her check and promote her many products. And now that her daughter Riley Burruss is following her musical foot steps, Kandi probably doesn’t have the time for Porsha and her desperate reaches to create story lines. Don’t even get me started on her “relationship” this season. But since Kandiis a Real Housewife, she’s basically required to share her opinions on what goes down and that includes Porsha’s anger issues.
Well, Real Housewives Of Atlanta started out nicely, didn’t it? Of course, after Jesus fixed things up nice, it went straight down to hell in a hand basket over dinner! Get your prayer cloths and holy water to the fires, y’all!
I, for one, loved seeing Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore get their glamour and their good intentions on to drive to Detroit in a vintage convertible, letting the shade fly out the window like one of Kenya’s alleged weaves. Phaedra and Kenya are about to spend a week roughing it with children affected by the Flint water crisis at summer camp.
We watched Cynthia say goodbye to her first Atlanta home as she prepared to move on to her lake home. Despite having a gorgeous new place lined up (eventually), she gets nostalgic over leaving it behind. “It was very difficult to pack up my old home. It is the only home that Noelle and I have ever known since our move to Atlanta from New York City almost nine years ago. There is so much history and memories in that house. I actually teared up watching the flashbacks. I didn’t think I would be so emotional. Noelle was excited about the move until it was actually time to move. Then she started to get all sentimental on me. She was eight years old when we moved to Atlanta, and now she is seventeen. Noelle grew up in that house.”
