Unlike when Phaedra was dead silent while Marlo Hampton brought the undercover lesbian accusations to light during the glamping trip, Phaedra is actually talking when it comes to her divorce and the Porsha vs. Kandi feud.
This Real Housewives of Atlanta season has been heavily focused on Kandi Burruss. For years she was just there to promote her products and interject here and there when other people got into it, but this season is very Kandi-centered thanks to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams starting rumors that she is a closeted lesbian who hooked up with Shamea Morton. Kandi confronted Porsha about her pot stirring during the last episode.
It wasn’t all drama for Kandi though. At the very least, she seemed to be beaming with pride when her daughter Riley Burruss followed in her musical footsteps and recorded a track of her own. Needless to say, Kandi has a lot to say about the last episode.
While Porsha really went in with the rumor spreading and instigating, Kenya was calm, cool, collected and gifted Cynthia Bailey with a vaginal rejuvenation. I don’t know whyKenya felt like Cynthia needed to get that procedure done since the past few seasons have had several story lines about the lack of sexual activity with her and her ex Peter Thomas. It didn’t seem necessary, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.
The cool thing about being a reality TV star is that you get to be famous and make money for being yourself instead of working hard on acting or singing. But apparently there’s something in the water since Luann de Lesseps has an acting role in the upcoming feature film Babymoon. And now Porsha Williams is trying her hand at acting.
On one hand, I cannot imagine Porsha being anyone other than herself, but at the same time she does seem to front a lot when it comes to manufacturing story lines for Real Housewives of Atlanta, so she already has had some “acting” practice if you think about it. So what is Porsha working on these days?
Well, um, who needs a hot shower after last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta?! The ladies were on pu$$y patrol, but there was also slow motion stiletto strolls, butterflies, and some serious Diana Ross, the Studio 54 years, hairstyles.
After a dramatic ‘lesbian’ laden dinner brought the glamping adventure to an end, Kandi Burruss is too upset by the accusations to ride home on the communal bus. Or maybe she was scared she have to confront further issues? One person, Cynthia Bailey, is relieved to be away from pu$$y-related problems, but alas that escape will be short-lived and come right back at Cynthia like getting struck by lightening.
While Marlo Hampton, stirrer of trouble and bubbles, busies herself with selfies, Sheree Whitfield plots and ponders. Specifically she wonders why Phaedra Parks, one of the originators of the ‘Kandi hooks up with girls’ rumors, never backed her bestie Porsha Williams. But for now Porsha is willing to sit in the hotseat alone, except for her girls ‘Coco and Chanel.’
Poor Kandi Burruss. These lesbian rumors just won’t stop even though she only just heard about them during the last RHOA episode thanks to wannabe Housewife Marlo Hampton. This chatter has been going on for multiple episodes, yet this is the first time Kandi found out about it – in a group setting and in front of the cameras, of course.
Poor Cynthia Bailey‘s divorce progress got pushed to the back burner as soon as Marlo decided to put Kandi on blast after repeating what Sheree Whitfield told her. Still, Cynthia actually did feel the love from the RHOA ladies when she made her announcement. Cynthia discussed the progress of her divorce, the support from her cast members, and this chatter about Kandi and her her alleged secret sex life with Bravo.
I could not control my laughter when Porsha Williams gasped and over exaggerated in response to Marlo Hampton talking about the Kandi Burruss lesbian rumors after Sheree Whitfield spilled some tea to her in private. Porsha was a major part of that initial conversation and threw her best friend Shamea Morton under the bus in the process. It was hilarious when she tried to distance herself from that conversation while Phaedra Parks was sweating bullets hoping not to get called out as well.
Now, Porsha has decided that her dating life is off limits. This is pretty absurd given that she is a star of a reality show and doesn’t really have a story line (other than spreading other people’s business and denying her well-documented anger issues) and because she talks about everyone else’s romances and sexual dalliances. So, why should she get a free pass? Yeah, I can’t think of a reason either.
Last night we learned a few important lessons, mostly that we should never ever let the Real Housewives of any ilk attempt the outdoors. Like nice try Phaedra Parks, but just like your maxi dress, the Real Housewives aren’t a right fit for tents.
Getting out of Atlanta is itself a travail after Porsha Williams has surprise invited her sister Lauren to act as a human security blanket against Porsha’s highly tuned rage. While Porsha and Kenya Moore argue about the merits of their communication styles, Prophet Parks interjects commanding them to STOP and to remember they are all strong personalities who act out. Constantly.
