Summer technically beings three weeks from today, but Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer for many. For me, it begins to feel like summer after my daughter’s annual dance recital, which usually leads into my kids’ last week of school. They are going to be bouncing off the walls. If you need me, I will be hiding in a corner with a bottle of wine. I’m kidding. Maybe.
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.
Did y’all have a nice weekend? I did…until I saw these pictures. Like the generous person I am, I had to share them with all of you…if for no other reason than to have people to commiserate with in the “Things You Can’t Unsee Club.” Remember when Porsha Williams entered the Real Housewives of Atlanta scene with a very reserved and conservative demeanor? My how times have changed!
After going through the requisite housewives divorce and becoming acclimated to feuding nastily with her co-stars, Porsha has been totally initiated into the realm of reality television. Girlfriend’s even got her own line of lingerie to boot which she promotes shamelessly all over her Instagram.
So – part 3 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, did anyone ask themselves: What the hell did I just watch? I hope it wasn’t just me.
Honestly I have no idea what was even going on except NeNe Leakes was reenacting Sybil with multiple personalities – she was ragey, and laughing, and cagey, yelling, crying, being open, being sympathetic – Lord I need Dr. Jeff to sit next to me on a sofa and stroke my hand. Help me, Dr. Jeff, help me! #ThisAintPhaedra
But first Peter Thomas gets his moment in the sun. He’s been waiting; a peach sitting ripening in the sun until it turned rotten and fell to the earth, but finally someone noticed it – its pit poking through the wrinkled, moldy skin. Kenya Moore and NeNe are yelling about whether or not NeNe flirted with Peter, so finally someone decided to ask Peter, who was inevitably siting right there. Peter denied it, but managed to turned it into a diatribe about how Kenya deserves a million apologies for being wrongly judged by these women because they believed she was flirting with Apollo.
Following part one, Bravo asked Claudia if she was surprised by Porsha.
“Absolutely not,” shared Claudia. “She’s been quite stank all season. The last time I was surprised at her actions was when we met for lunch way back in the very beginning of the season, because up until a week prior, I thought we were cool enough. Not friends or besties … but cordial acquaintances. But when she kept doing little catty things, I saw what it was.”
But first, Kenya pointed out both the good and the bad about the reunions. As for the positive, she explained, “The reunion represents closure on all levels. I believe most women need closure.”
As for the negative aspect, Kenya shared, “Reunions are tough because you live through filming, then through seeing it on TV, and then again during the reunion. You can feel you have moved on from something difficult and then you have to discuss it and rehash it. I felt good about this reunion, because I have grown so much. I am stronger now and nothing or anyone can destroy me.”
Reacting to Claudia Jordan‘s accusations that Porsha confessed to dating a married man in the Philippines, Porsha laughs that off as ludicrous. “She was really reaching with that lie,” quips Porsha. “Why would I have an intimate conversation about anything personal with Claudia, Kenya or Cynthia since they all despise me?”
