Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would say it was a little sweet and a little classy, but it wasn't. It was mostly a lotta ratchet.
See Kenya Moore threw the big end of the season party. And at Kenya's party she wants things her way – or the highway. Well, parking lot at least. Kenya decided her Atlanta "coming out" event would be an Iconic Black Women In Film gala. She assigned all the ladies of RHOA a character because there was to be some sort of performance associated with the role. The only performing I saw was a low-budget runway show in which they all waltzed up on stage did a couple hip pops and sat back down on a folding chair in the audience. Apparently that's how Krayonce defines a play though cause she was two shades of bent out of bootyshape about Porsha Stewart coming in the wrong costume.
I have to say that as I was watching a marathon Real Housewives of Atlanta on Friday, and it was odd to see the scenes of Porsha Stewart and husband Kordell seemingly happy when the news just broke that the couple was seeking a divorce. The former NFL quarterback filed papers last week claiming that the couple is now separated and their marriage is "irretrievably broken."
The pair were married in May of 2011, and rumors are now swirling that Porsha was straying too far from her role of traditional wife. When Porsha and Kordell met, she was a preacher at High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, Georgia. On RHOA, Porsha touts herself as a trophy wife.
We have certainly seen Real Housewives of Atalanta'sNeNe Leakes rise to stardom since she first appeared on the Bravo franchise. Of course, as NeNe's fame increased–and her shows multiplied–her marriage suffered. When she divorced long-time husband Gregg, many assumed that their relationship couldn't handle the pressure of NeNe's celebrity. Heck, her friendships certainly couldn't handle it…WIG!
Well, as we saw on this season's RHOA, Gregg and NeNe are working through their problems and planning a lavish second wedding. NeNe even reveals that former bestie/archnemesis Kim Zolciak will be invited to the big affair. Did I just see a pig fly by my window?
Can we say PUBLICITY STUNT?! Of course, but who cares because the last time I actually liked watching Kim Zolciak on TV she was friends with NeNe Leakes.
After 3 seasons of fighting and one awkward run-in, the Real Housewives of Atlanta friendship that spawned the greatest one-liner in HW history, "Close your legs to married men, trashbox!" is possibly, tepidly, resuming. At least on TV! You know NeNe is chasing that Bravo paid-for wedding.
Kim announced on twitter last night that she and NeNe had spoken. Just in time to start promoting her spinoff Don't Be Tardy which starts in two weeks.
Kordell's court documents (filed March 22nd) cited that the marriage was "irretrievably broken." The couple does not have a prenup, despite Kordell's NFL past but he is already contesting paying alimony to the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
The documents declare: "[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself." His filing also says there are no marital assets to divide.
Kordell's attorney released a statement saying he hopes "everyone understands" it was a “very difficult decision." "Kordell’s ongoing concern has been and remains his son’s best interest.” Kordell has a son from a previous relationship.
It's no secret that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes wants to be less a reality star and more a legitimate television personality. She's already conquered the sitcom realm with her NBC hit The New Normal, and now many of her fans are hoping we'll see the Neenster on the talk show circuit.
Not too long ago, NeNe served as a guest host on ABC's The View, and she was very well received to say the least. While I don't always find NeNe's behavior on RHOA to be all that funny (although her WIG! oneliners are classic), I find her hilarious outside the show. Now that Joy Behar has announced she'll be bidding farewell to The View after nearly seventeen years, would NeNe make a good replacement?
Kordell and Porsha have been seen having issues throughout the season. Several women on the show expressed concern that Kordell is controlling. The couple does not have prenup so this should be interesting and they have been married less than five years.
