The problem is Porsha told a lie. She told a really damning and smearing lie. While lying is no new thing to this show (and it is amusing that Kenya Moore, who has told more falsehoods than Pinocchio, is the most enraged about Porsha’s lie), Porsha has told a lie that could potentially have legal ramifications or ruin Kandi’s reputation. The worst though is that Porsha doesn’t seem bothered by that, and doesn’t seem to get how bad this is. Nor does she seem bothered that Kandi is so upset. Which is especially disconcerting considering that Porsha and Kandi were once close friends.
Kenya says she was shocked to hear about Porsha’s incendiary claims of Kandi being mixed up with sex dungeons, drugs, and extra-marital lesbian relationships. “I know Kandi has been very honest about herself since I’ve known her. I’ve often said she is the most loyal friend I’ve ever seen, even when she would take sides with Phaedra [Parks]. With that said, Kandi has always been open about her sexuality, she has a sex toy line! I just cannot believe that the situation has become a real life movie: Sex, Lies, and Videotape.”
Obviously, Porsha and Phaedra were the ones who were dragging Kandi behind her back (and eventually to her face), but Kandi only found out about it thanks to Sheree, so I wonder how Sheree feels about all of this. Is she happy that her messiness resulted in an extremely dramatic story line for the show? Or does she actually feel bad about the accusations snowballing into Porsha accusing Kandi and Todd Tucker of attempting to drug her?
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta went left to The Matrix. I don’t even know what happened, but I feel like I entered an alternate universe? Of secret carpet muncher people? Even writing that feels wrong and homophobic. I want to go back home! I want to go click my Louboutins together and be transported to an RHOA of wig tugs, Bloops! and weird pickle photoshoots.
I had forgotten how debased Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams‘ argument was in the week-off where I watched gorgeous gowns float across the Oscars stage. You can catch up on that recap here.
It was a hard jolt back to reality (I ate the blue pill! On a Monday!) to have the episode open with Porsha accusing Kandi and Todd of possibly planning to drug her then drag her into their hidden sex dungeon. OK – WHAT?!
Porsha “heard this” lurid rumor from someone else. Apparently she believes it. We know how those words on the street work in Atlanta. Turn here for “Liable Suit Way”! Kandi rightfully wants Porsha to present receipts to back-up any of her claims.
Porsha made those claims with no receipts, so I knew this WWHLepisode was going to be a juicy one. Plus, this entire time I have been wondering why Porsha is the only one having these heated discussions with Kandi when Phaedra Parks is the one who initially said that Kandi and Todd had a sexual relationship with Shamea. Yes, Porsha addressed this too. FINALLY.
If you need a refresher on Real Housewives of Atlanta since it’s been two weeks since the last episode, start with the recap here. For those of us still recovering from the raunch of it all, let’s start fresh this week. Oh wait, we can’t! Because they are STILL going to be rehashing it some more this week. Although, the cast does fly off to Hawaii, so we may get a change of scenery in that way.
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker plan a couples’ getaway to Maui for all the ladies – and somehow we wind up with Peter Thomas tagging along, too. Porsha Williams puts Kandi past her boiling point when she lets accusations fly about attempted druggings and sex dungeons.
