For this season’s storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are going through a rough patch in their marriage – triggered by the “cheater” video that circulated to a few sites over the summer. On the last episode Cynthia and Peter decided they want to try to make their marriage work and in her newest blog she talks about that decision and more, including dishing on Kenya Moore’s big launch party.
On whether it was difficult to have the conversation with Peter she shared, “It was absolutely difficult to have a serious conservation with my husband regarding the fate of our marriage. Everyone has a breaking point, and at that time, I felt like I had reached mine. I wanted to keep an open mind and listen to Peter, however it was important to me to be heard and have my words be received. When I asked Peter if he is the kind of person who stays in a relationship even if it is no longer working, I needed to hear his truth. I know I am not that person. I don’t want to be a part of anything that is unhealthy and no longer serves my life purpose. I truly believe the only reason for being in a relationship/marriage is to be a better and happier person than you are alone. I know that all relationships go through their ups and downs, but there should be more good times than bad times. More light than darkness. After our conversation, my heart told me not to give up, and to try to work it out.”
Kenya says she and Madam CJ Walker have something in common: being self-made women. She says of Madam CJ, “she neither inherited her money nor married someone who was a millionaire. She was a woman who came from the cotton fields who promoted herself into the business of manufacturing hair goods. She built her own factory on her own ground. I too am self-made, often believing in myself when no one else did.”
The night before her return to the big stage, NeNe shared on Instagram, “The spotlight will be on me TOMORROW nite as I take this stage! You know life has a way of knocking you down but God believed in me when so many didn’t! No matter what you have been thru your dreams can come true! This is my second time on BROADWAY! #gettingbacktome #chicago #neneismamamorton”
NeNe will play Mama in Chicago through December 20, 2015. She previously said her services were requested through January, but she said no, “I couldn’t do it. When you do Broadway, you really cannot do anything else. You have to clean your schedule, and the moment that you clean your schedule, that is when everybody calls.” Check out pics of NeNe‘s first night in Chicago below.
After the grown-man boyfriend showerPorsha Williams threw boyfriend Duke Williams on last week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the writing was on the wall. This relationship was probably headed for the rocks. Duke and Porsha have indeed broken up since filming, but Porsha says it was mainly due to distance…and “some other things that will come out in the show.” What these “things” are is anybody’s guess!
When it comes to her breakup with Duke, Porsha says it’s all about the “fall back game.” “My fall back game is gonna be strong,” Porsha tells Bravo, saying she’s “fallen back on Duke a little bit.” If you’re not sure exactly what that means, Porsha adds the following clarifying statement: “So, we kinda broke up a little bit…” (Huh?)
When asked about Kenya‘s disgustingly hot Moore Hair Care launch party, Porsha says, “I thought it was a set up. By the time she got there I looked like a mop. I was about to melt.”
A caller wants to know where Porsha and Kenya stand today. “We’re actually okay,” says Porsha. “We’re okay. We kind of speak to each other. Not so many digs – still a little shade every now and then just to keep up honest, but she is okay. I wish her well.” I hope her snarky comments at Kenya’s launch party isn’t her idea of “not so many” digs.
Two days after the season premiere of Real Housewives Of Atlanta -when Kandi and Todd announced that a motorcycle and a four-wheeler owned by Apollo were in their garage while Apollo serves his 8-year prison sentence – the feds are seeking a surrender lien on said property. Oops.
I’ve never been shy about the fact that I like whatKenya Moore brings to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. That said, just because I find her special brand of crazy entertaining, doesn’t mean I agree with everything she does and says. Kenya took to her blog to break down this week’s episode, and to be honest, I think she totally missed the mark on two of the three storylines she touched on.
Despite the fact delusion that Kenya and Kim Fields have so much in common and, you know, Hollywood has been so good to both of them, they didn’t exactly hit it off.
“I have worked with Kim in the past, when I was a guest star on the ’90s sitcom Living Single and later on Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns,” shared Kenya. “We joked about how shady she was to me back then during our meeting. I was a bit taken aback at the side eyes and shade she threw my way. As far as now, she was very reserved and subdued, a far cry from the fun and feisty character she played in the ’90s.”
