NeNe Leakeskept her thoughts on this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta short and sweet (with a tiny dash of salt). The reality star is fed up with the negative dinners with her co-stars and has some words of advice for a certain former friend.
NeNe starts off sharing her thoughts on these ridiculous dinner get-togethers and puts the liars and manipulators on blast. “Going into dinner with these ladies will never be a fun thing for me, and that probably will never change, but I’ve made a few changes of my own. I have come to a place in my life where I just don’t have the time or energy to entertain people who don’t like me or support me, people who hurt me and that pull energy instead of giving energy. Those that never compliment but always ridicule. Those that manipulate and lie. The people you know who are willing to turn on you for so called opportunities or the almighty dollar with no explanation! The people that want everyone to believe you’re the bad guy when in reality they are. The people that stab you in the back and watch you bleed with no sympathy.”
Kandi Burruss is not about the drama – don’t start none .. won’t be done – so she thought it necessary to bring the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta together to iron out their differences. Because these type of Real Housewives gatherings rarely have drama. LOL! Nice try, Kandi, but I’ve got your number.
There was nothing but drama – save for a few stale crackers – and not much was accomplished between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore.
Phaedra addressed the dinner cracker chat in her blog. “I was fine sitting down with all of the ladies,” she said. “While it is not something I would have initiated, I respect anything that is done in the interest of peace and harmony, which is why I attended.” Yeah, um, not to mention <eye roll> that contract with Bravo.
On Phaedra: “IF IT LOOKS LIKE A FRAUD, LIES LIKE A FRAUD, ACTS LIKE A FRAUD — IT MUST BE A FRAUD. No successful attorney or woman with any decorum should behave the way Phaedra does. No outstanding Christian should repeatedly call another woman a whore and be unapologetic about it. No respected attorney should slander and defame someone in the media without any evidence or facts. No “Southern Belle” or woman with class or respect for herself should visit a man in a halfway house at 3am.”
Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes are officially on the outs, after a confrontation on this week’s episode Cynthia admits that while she hasn’t given up on her friendship with NeNe, it will never be the same.
“I don’t foresee us being BFF’s again. But I would love to see Nene and I in a place where we’re cordial and we have respect for each other and we can have a good time together,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star admits. “I miss having fun with her. But we’re not at that place yet.”
This weekend we received some information from a very credible source about the status of Phaedra Parks‘ marriage to Apollo Nida. Phaedra told our source that she has absolutely no plans to visit Apollo while he is incarcerated at FMC Lexington Prison in Kentucky.
Claudia Jordan has a new place. She wanted to live in a high-rise condo to hang onto her NYC roots and she apparently hit-up Kim Zolciak‘s yardsale to buy a collection of red Solo cups because she has no dishes or furniture to speak of. Claudia isn’t proud – she knows we’ve all spent many a’day sippin’ on Maddog 20/20 like this was 1993 and we’re in a Coolio video. Claudia invites Kenya Moore over to show off the new place, but then immediately puts her to work assembling iKea furniture while chugging wine out of said Solo cups. Kenya’s all like I didn’t wear my only pair of Louboutins for this. Then she wonders if Claudia has been buying her Louboutins from a Made In Hong Kong authentic discount site and painting the soles red herself. I mean, the only red bottoms that seem authentic in Claudia’s place are the cups!
Later Claudia and Kenya go to the gym under the pretense of Claudia getting her own stallion booty. Why doesn’t she just ask for the name of Kenya’s Mexican butt doctor? Claudia grew up with an Italian immigrant mother and a black father from NYC. Her dad left when they were kids and she doesn’t have much of a relationship with him.
The first question is: What was the cause of their falling out? NeNe: I think over the years of being on the show and the stress and other people chiming in. We just kind of broke apart.”
How did they become friends again? NeNe: “I would say time. Time heals wounds.” Kim agrees.
NeNe shares that she hasn’t met Kim’s twins, Kaia and Kane (who just turned a year old). Then NeNe (is she tipsy?) says that she’s having another baby. But Andy assumes she means another grandbaby – but she doesn’t respond and they go to break.
Kenya Moore has been the victim of Apollo Nida‘s lies for years over sext-gate. After initially saying she wanted to apologize to Kenya for calling her a “whore” based on Apollo’s tales of cheating, Phaedra Parks has now placed Kenya at the bottom of her priority list. But has Kenya decided to forgive her anyway?
A source says that although Kenya no longer feels anger towards Phaedra, and accepts that Phaedra was reacting to Apollo’s lies, but she still hopes to receive an apology. Apparently it’s a matter of principle to the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star. “She’s tired of all the lies and the scorn that Apollo has caused,” an insider close to Kenya explains. “Now that Apollo has come clean and told Kenya face-to-face that he lied about her, she instantly forgave him. She no longer harbors any hatred in her heart for him.”
