Finally we have some answers about what is up with Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Like where the hell are the first ladies of peaches. I had assumed Phaedra Parks trapped them in some Southern Belle Training Camp, but alas the beans have been spilled on where they are and why NeNe Leakesskipped the trip!
Rumors were swirling that amid some cryptic tweets about sinking ships, NeNe had quit RHOA mid-season and was not invited on the last-minute cast trip to celebrate Phaedra’s birthday. I assumed NeNe was skipping to prepare for her role in Broadway’s Cinderella, but it was revealed that health reasons caused NeNe to skip the trip. Specifically blood clots that warn against long flights.
There is a great mystery surrounding Real Housewives Of Atlanta – who are somewhere lost in the world – as they traveled on a jet plane for over 20 hours to get to a mysterious tropical location! Is it Bali? Thailand? South Korea?!
RHOA supposedly wrapped filming – Bravo already released the season 7 trailer – but with the Phaedra/Apollo drama escalating and Phaedra filing for divorce, cameras have resumed rolling. And they’re capturing a Phaedra Gets Her Groove Back vacation where all the ladies ostensibly come together to support the ‘New Phaedra’. Except for “Most Supportive” NeNe. Of course, NeNe has an excuse – she’s about to be on Broadway.
No one knows for sure where they are, but the girls left on Phaedra’s birthday, it’s definitely somewhere tropical and it definitely includes Tropical Storm Krayonce. Yes, even Kenya Moore is there! Several different sources have theories about the current whereabouts of our Ladies Atlanta who could be anywhere from South Korea to Bali! Let’s discuss.
“A lot of things will come to light that I feel will be redemptive for me,” Kenya says. “I’m just excited for people to not question the lies that were told by many people on the show, and now we’ll all get to see what the real truth is.” Hmmm… what lies do you think she is talking about? Do you think it has to do with Apollo Nida?
Speaking of which, Kenya explains that it was never her intent to go after someone’s man. Then why was she texting or flirting with someone’s man? Just to be clear: I think Apollo is far more responsible for maintaining the integrity of his marriage than Kenya, but still – she knew the man was married!
Clearly this has been brewing — I mean we all saw the reunion! — for awhile, but the current trouble started when Kenya claimed during an interview with Enstars that she had no thoughts about Porsha’s recent demotion on the hit Bravo reality series. Really, Kenya? No comment at all?
When a caller asked for Tamar‘s opinion on Kenya‘s music, she shared, “She sings? No shade! I think I heard [Gone with the Wind Fabulous] in the club one time. I didn’t know it was a serious record. No shade. Well, I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. Something about the thirst of it all. She’s a pretty girl. It’s just, like, the pageant thing kind of reeks.” Tamar admitted that NeNe Leakes is her girl.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s social media accounts for a reaction. And Kenya delivered!
The ladies — who once entered into a friendship contract — saw their friendship begin to fracture at the end of last season when NeNe and Cynthia’s husband had words at a charity function. (Because isn’t a charity function where everyone should settle their beef?)
But this season the ladies are officially enemies. In a preview, you can even see Cynthia burning the friendship contract! So just what does NeNe have to say about the status of their friendship now?
Yesterday Phaedra Parks appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk the recent events of her life – most specifically Apollo Nida‘s incarceration and their marriage! Ellen also asked Phaedra about her Real Housewives Of Atlanta castmates and if Apollo cheated during their marriage.
What struck me is how nervous Phaedra seemed – in all the heated situations we’ve seen Phaedra in I’ve never seen her literally trembling. We do know she doesn’t like to “open up” so maybe that had something to do with it. I did love her dress which, and she joked with Ellen that anyone could be a southern belle – even Ellen. Ellen joked back that she had pearls on under her suit.
We previously shared some of Phaedra’s quotes about her life now, how she was initially supportive and believed Apollo was telling the truth (“Obviously it didn’t turn out that way,” she acknowledges.) and Phaedra also denied cheating during their marriage.
