At the reunion, Phaedra Parks made it be known that she did not appreciate Kandi – or anyone else for that matter – talking about whether or not her boys, Ayden and Dylan, should visit Apollo Nida in prison. About how that made her feel, Kandi said, “I don’t feel anything. I’m tired of being asked about it.”
She acts a fool. She sings. She dances. She bloops. NeNe Leakes may have risen to fame on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she didn’t follow the normal housewives branding with fruity alcoholic beverages and cookbooks. The Neenster is one of the few reality stars (who wasn’t famous before her reality show) who has managed to crossover into acting…and not just in Sharknado movies! She’s guest starred on Glee. She’s starred in a short-lived sitcom. She’s acted on Broadway (twice!!!). What’s next?
Well apparently, stand-up comedy. NeNe is taking her act on the road with her “So Nasty, So Rude” tour. I guess “Close Your Legs to Married Men….WIG!” tour was too much to fit on the flyer?
With just one more episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion left to go, we are saying goodbye to Kim Fields. Kim confirmed this week past week that she won’t be returning for a second season of the reality show. Rumor has it that it wasn’t the cast that drove her away, but poor treatment by Bravo?!
Page Six reported that Kim is floored over the positive way she’s being treated over at ABC on Dancing with the Stars because things were reportedly not so good on RHOA. “They treated her awful. Once she got a taste of how one should be treated, and that would be how ABC is treating her, she’s like, ‘Screw this s–t, man!’ She’s very happy on ‘Dancing,’ doing well.”
“The finale was filmed some months ago – that’s not real time. At the finale, when that was filmed, we were in a better place. I will say now that Peter and I are not in a great place,” Cynthia admitted on Amy Phillips‘ SiriusXM show Reality Checked. “We are not in a great place.”
Porsha compliments Andy on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, “You were on fire. Your follow-up questions were shady as hell.” Speaking of shade, how about Porsha’s digs at Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey?! Does Porsha think Cynthia knows the truth about Peter? “I don’t know what Cynthia knows,” she says. “All I know is that if she’s happy, I’m happy for her. She is the one who is married to him. They seem to be doing well today. Good luck, guys.”
Here we go! Holiday or not, the reunion rages on! Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion airs tonight (now!) and the ladies are back for more rehashing of the past season.
Cynthia Baileyshared her thoughts on this year’s reunion – and her reunion look, “I felt great going into the reunion. I am a closure girl, and that’s what the reunion is all about for me. I embrace the recap, the conversation, the opinions, and the moving forward that comes with the reunion. Not to mention, I absolutely loved my look: dress, hair, and makeup. I usually go for a more fashion forward, edgier style, but this year I wanted to look a little more girly and softer.”
Anyone remember when Phaedra Parks went to Mortuary College and we all assumed it was a passing fancy? It turns out the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is very devoted to her work with the deceased and presently juggles Phunerals by Phaedra alongside her law practice. (BTW: I made up the name Phunerals By Phaedra – it’s not an actual company).
“The funeral business is really an overnight and weekend business. Saturday is the funeral day for people of color, usually,” Phaedra explains. “And of course, the courthouses and law firms are closed on Saturdays.”
