Reality TV friendships come and go, but it seems like Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams have a solid friendship on Real Housewives of Atlanta. A lot of people on reality TV shows are only hanging out because they are contractually obligated to, but you can tell that these two are genuinely friends.
When Phaedra first joined the show, she was very proud of her relationship with her recent exApollo Nida. Nowadays, it seems like Phaedra’s only ride or die companion is Porsha.
Phaedra Parks can’t catch break on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is always going through multiple issues at once, and she was once again front and center during the last episode with the news of a bomb threat at her office and a trip to prison to discuss her divorce with Apollo Nida. Damn, that’s a lot to deal with. She also went to the Democratic National Convention. This episode really did revolve around Phaedra, and she broke it all down in a new Q&A with Bravo.
After sharing that she was officially free, Apollo called the whole divorce story into question by filing a fresh set of divorce papers last week. But according to new reports, it’s just a waste everyone’s time since a judge already signed off on the whole thing.
I cannot help laughing at this whole situation. I can’t tell if this is a legit relationship or just a wild publicity stunt, but this woman actually posted a photo of her “ring” on Instagram to make their engagement social media official. God, I would love to see what Phaedra texted her bestie Porsha Williams about this whole mess. I’m sure she had some choice words for both of these people.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta blew things up – pun intended! – from imploding relationships, to actual bomb threats, and in between, a political message.
Phaedra Parks is headed to the DNC, accompanied by Porsha Williams. Porsha explains that politics is in her blood because her grandfather was legendary civil rights leader Hosea Williams. Are we sure they’re related? I mean, Porsha thought the underground railroad was Atlanta’s mysterious subway which transported people to a safe-haven called The Mall Of America.
Last month after Phaedra announced that she had finalized her divorce from Apollo, there were rumors flying, alleging that she had never even filed for divorce, let alone “settled” it. And now TMZ reports that Apollo has filed papers to officially end the marriage.
I never thought I would see Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore getting along and having lunch together on Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s a miracle. Nevertheless, I can’t help being a little surprised that Phaedra reached out to Kenya to help with her summer camp to benefit kids who are suffering because of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
It was nice to see these two putting their differences behind them to help out with a good cause, but it was tacky as hell when Kenya and Sheree Whitfield argued over their mansions (for what felt like the millionth time this season!) during a meeting that was supposed to focus on raising funds for the camp. Really though?! They couldn’t be cordial for one charitable meeting?! Shaking. My. Damn. Head. Yes, it made the episode entertaining, but the timing was absurd! As far as I saw, Phaedra didn’t get a word in during the back and forth battle, but I’m sure she has some thoughts about them stealing her shine when she was just trying to be philanthropic.
