NeNe calls B.S. on the whole thing, "Please show me where in this episode I acknowledge that I knew her back in my Athens days. I'm still waiting. You haven't found it yet? It doesn’t exist!"
She continued, "Let me remind you once again, I don't practice lying, and in this case there's no need for it. What would I get out of saying I didn't know her if I did know her? Here's the story for hopefully the last time. Chuck, Phaedra, and I are all from Athens, Georgia. Did I know Phaedra when I was in high school, NO! I say clearly on this episode that I am the class of ‘85. Chuck says he's the class of ‘88 and the innocent Phaedra is the class of ‘89. Think about high school! It's generally 9th grade through 12th grade. When I was a senior in high school that means Chuck was a freshman, right? Phaedra would have been in 8th grade at that time, right? I left Athens at 18-years-old. I have lived in Atlanta longer than I have lived anywhere."
Kenya Moore and her desperate to get screentime frienemy Miss Lawrence meet for lunch to gossip about Sav-AWN-a, as pronounced wrong by Krayonce. Kenya reveals that apparently everyone in Atlanta, or at least everyone one in Atlanta that is also on RHOA, has slept with Chuck Smith.
Kenya giggles that Chuck didn't want to put a ring on "jumpoff" Phaedra Parks, because naturally the only reason a man wouldn't want to marry a woman is because she's a jumpoff. Not because people date but don't always fall in love and then they move on. Six proposals, one hired boyfriend, and a Nigerian prince she met on gmail later, Krayonce doesn't seem to understand the behaviors of a normal relationship.
Speaking of Chuck, he invited Phaedra and NeNe Leakes to Athens to propose that they all speak at the Boys & Girls Club there because Chuck is very involved. NeNe now knows Phaedra from growing up. Phaedra reminds us Athens is a one-horse, or one Dairy Queen town, with two high schools and everyone knows of everyone, just in case NeNe forgot.
Mama Joyce has certainly been letting her crazy, spiteful, and angry flag fly this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But now she's claiming that it's totally not her fault as editing is making her look deranged. Um… I'd like to consult Carmon on this one!
Joyce also says she is so upset that she may never return to RHOA! Not only does Joyce blame the editors, she also blames Carmon for setting the stage for her flip outs.
Considering her daughter KandiBurrusshas admitted several times that family tension is seriously compromising her wedding plans, Mama Joyce's claims that Bravo manipulated her screen time to make her look like the future mother-in-law from hell doesn't exactly hold water with me, but that's what she claims.
“I know Kandi had a decorator, her friend Carmon – and she put up all those pictures of Todd when he was a little boy," Joycetells Radar Online. "When they showed the scene of me walking into the house and seeing all the pictures of Todd on the wall I was not talking about his pictures!”
Is someone thinking of pulling a Dina Manzo? Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak has been having baby after baby, but I do believe that she's finally done. After giving birth to four children in three years, could Kim be ready to return to the show that made her wigs so famous?
Kim didn't leave Real Housewives of Atlanta on the good terms (to put it mildly), and she's had lots of, um, ups and downs with former bestie NeNe Leakes, Would she really be interested in going down that path again?
Love & Hip Hop returned after a two week break to a much smaller audience. Only 2.386 caught Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz discussing their relationship – that's down over 500,000 since early December and nearly a million since early November. Will it bounce back in January?
Kenya Moore always has her own version of events! Isn't that why we love to hate her?
In this week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies continued their trip to Savannah and Kenya surprisingly reached out to Phaedra Parks in an attempt to extend the olive branch. Unfortunately Phaedra was over her.
"I have never seen any genuine emotion from Phaedra – no tears, no anger, no pain… even when her child was born she’s never exhibited any vulnerability whatsoever," Kenya writes in her Bravo blog. "I’ve only seen her make snide behind-the-back remarks and a slew of hateful lies… All reasons why it’s easy to say she is fake.
She begins by putting her childless co-stars in their place, writing, "Kenya and Porsha have no clue about parenting, so let's just let them stay in their room and do their fake hug and cry. I love it! Moving on!"
Taking a dig at Apollo Nida, NeNe continues, "As Phaedra said, 'I have had problems with my son.' Now Phaedra you are entitled to your opinion, but the facts remain, you don't know anything about my children. Have you ever met Bryson? If so, it couldn’t have been but once. Remember you have two young boys to raise! Let's pray they don't do six years in prison, because you know the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I mean, is the sun even out anymore? Shade, shade, shade!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta continued their girls trip to Savannah where some unlikely bonding occurred – it only took a cockroach and some southern comfort food to bring them all together! Collective "awwwwwww".
Despite a fight about Chuck's very Housewives past, things are all fine the next morning as the women come together to make breakfast and gossip. Kandi Burruss shares that she and Todd "skypesex" and she shows him her vag. I hope she doesn't end with an accidental sex tape when Krayonce hacks her phone or something out of revenge! Apparently Porsha Stewart had something pierced down there: TMI.
Doing a 180, Cynthia Bailey says that Noelle has a boyfriend but there is no unsupervised time as the parents are very involved. She thinks it's better to be supportive than put her foot down and have Noelle rebel. "I'd rather be picking up Arthur than picking up a grandbaby," Cynthia explains. #cosign!
Kandi and Cynthia relate about parenting girls vs. parenting boys - as Phaedra Parks puts it, with boys you only have to worry about one "dingaling" but with girls you have to worry about everybody else's dingaling. NeNe Leakes doesn't care: she thinks Noelle is too young to date and Cynthia is making a mistake supporting it.
