Kenya chooses to not use Porsha’s name in her blog this week, referring to her as NeNe’s new BFF instead. “Although NeNe has barely spoken to me this season, I wasn’t surprised to learn that she invited her new BFF to drinks. I also wasn’t shocked to see that despite it all, she still refuses to apologize for her violent actions. This is after NeNe, Phaedra, and Andy (to name a few) have all suggested she do so.”
We’re slowly getting to know newbieClaudia Jordan on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Short version of this week’s revelations: she doesn’t obsess over her hair and clothes, she doesn’t know if she will ever have children, she doesn’t exchange ‘I Love You’ with her mother, and, most importantly, she doesn’t own a shady throwaway flip phone. Long version: Claudia offered more in her blog.
When asked if she thought Cynthia Bailey was being shady by taking her for a makeover, Claudia shared, “No, I didn’t think it was shady at all! I’m the first person to tell you I put very little effort into my hair and clothes. Half the time I’m just trying to get somewhere on time, and it’s just never been a priority to get overly dolled up. I have to be up at 5 am every morning for ONE of my jobs. I hit that snooze button more than a little bit trying to get an extra few minutes of sleep in before work. Then when I get to work sometimes we take photos with the guests and BUSTED! I look less than stellar and got caught out there! Or then I get a call that I have to be somewhere right after work. But my priority is getting to where I need to go.”
Today Porsha Williams is responding to the news of her arrest after being pulled over for speeding and then busted for driving on a suspended license. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star tries to explain why she was speeding, but doesn’t really elaborate on the license situation, only to say that she DOES have one.
Porsha shares via Gossip Cop: “I was headed to visit my grandfather who is very ill with cancer in the hospital, and I was pulled over. I was wrong for speeding absolutely and apologize for putting anyone at risk.”
Porsha was booked and released after she posted a $1700 bond – and posed for a new mugshot. Poor Porsha probably can’t afford to hire a driver since RHOA took away her peach! She better find a new sugar daddy ASAP! Maybe she could move to NJ – Juicy Joe will be running a carpool for the next 15 months anyway…
Oh Real Housewives Of Atlanta – for all their ‘hate is real’ when it comes right down to it these ladies know how to have a good time! And laughter is the best medicine, as they say.
NeNe Leakes put on her lace football jersey and strategized about how she could re-unifiy this group, so she invited Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams for drinks to help them make amends. But the Hail Mary pass came when she sneak-invited Kenya Moore by telling Cynthia to “bring her girl.”
NeNe didn’t tell Porsha until she was seated at the bar, drink in hand, expecting a good old-fashioned keke about how NeNe should stop wearing denim short-shorts and Cynthia should watch those RHOA flashback scenes with woe because her fashions have gone as downhill as her finances!
New girl on the block Demetria McKinney was all set to fight Kenya Moore for possession of Roger Bobb‘s cheerio-hoarding heart, but instead they ended up being friends and Demetria had major issues with Phaedra Parks!
Demetria is throwing major shade at Phaedra – and almost what sounds like slander – in a new interview. Demetria labels Phaedra “bitter” and says she got the “karma” she deserved regarding Apollo Nida and all the rumors swirling around her.
The wannabe Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is “absolutely not” friends with Phaedra. “She is easily intimidated by everybody. I understand that life deals everybody a different deck and sometimes the hand you’re dealt isn’t necessarily fair, but turning bitter and turning on everybody around you is just not cool,” Demetria seethes.
After Phaedra Parks hinted that she’d consider visiting Apollo Nida in prison for Christmas it doesn’t appear that she did!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star instead opted for a “quiet” traditional Christmas spent in Atlanta with immediate family. Just three days before Christmas, Phaedra was spotted with bestie Kandi Burruss and She By SheBroke at the Atlanta Mayor’s Ball, where she was all smiles.
