Coming off my post-Christmas slump to deal with Real Housewives Of Atlanta makes me a bit cranky. Now I don’t know about y’all but I really don’t care if Phaedra Parks owes Todd Tucker money. I’d rather talk about Kandi Burruss rocking the h-e-double-hockeysticks out of over-the-knee sequined boots at 6 months pregnant. And I’d also like to discuss Kenya Moore‘s latest fake-a-date.
Kenya and Marlo Hampton hit the gym because this is totally 2000 and that’s where you meet men. Or cows. But not poopers. They’re playing with balls when James walks over to flirt with Kenya. James checks some of Kenya’s boxes: Tall, handsome, fit – but he’s too young and is but a mere personal trainer. They have a totally awkward, phony flirtation that results in a date. I was distracted by James smiling with his lip over his teeth and was waiting for them to expose scary teeth. But they weren’t scary at all.
Later Kenya and James meet to play basketball. Kenya wears a baby blue outfit to send subliminal hints that say, “Sperm donor.” Kenya isn’t sure if she wants a second date with James because he’s too young (and seriously this date was more awkward than one of those stupid male model photoshoots they always force uponAmerica’s Next Top Model contestants), but she’d totally turkey baste him in an alley, y’all!
I hope our Reality Tea family is enjoying a wonderful holiday week, with full bellies, fuller hearts, and a snarky outlook for what reality shows have in store for us in 2016! Real Housewives of Atlanta has had a crazy season thus far, and it can only get more insane after the most recent installment. Proving that no housewives can take a vacation without horrific drama, the RHOA ladies getaway to Miami was anything but fun, restful, or relaxing. In fact, it was downright hard to watch thanks to Tammy McCall Browning’s nephew Glen losing his shiz and slamming his aunt to the ground while trying to get to Kenya Moore after she told him to leave. Tugging on a wig is one thing, but battery is anything but entertaining. Take note, Bravo!
In her Bravo blog, Kenya espouses on the week’s episode with her own headlines, just in case you didn’t catch her theme. She begins, “MESSY–Many people accuse me of being messy. If you say something on a reality TV show with cameras recording you that you don’t want people to know about or ever repeat, don’t go on a reality TV show talking about people… Now that’s messy! You can call me messy, and at times I am. I own that. However, what I won’t do is look the other way when I see a potentially dangerous situation for myself, my friends, and cast mates.”
Sheree Whitfield, who stars on the Real Housewives of Atlanta is reportedly, knee-deep once again, in financial woes. The wannabe fashion designer and feisty cast member is allegedly being hauled into court by a contracting company for failure to fork over $15,450 in unpaid bills for work that is being done on her very controversial and forever-manse-in-the-works, “Chateau Sheree,” states the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.
The lawsuit which was filed by Stoploss Specialists, an emergency response contractor on December 17 of this year at Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior Court, not only demand payment but have tacked on yet another $7,550 in late fees and other charges.
Phaedra Parks isn’t afraid of putting self-proclaimed new queen of delusion bee Kenya Moore on blast, and she spent some time in her blog this week doing just that! Right or wrong, Phaedra is still convinced that Kenya’s “fears and poor communication skills” turned a sticky situation into an all-out brawl in Miami. The Real Housewives of Atlanta lawyer also discusses her thoughts on the plight of black men – and specifically black youth – in this country, and why the Miami incident sparked conversation about deeper issues.
Phaedra reflects on the Miami scene: “Everything happened very fast. One moment we were all having fun and in a split second things took a disastrous turn. Initially, I was shocked and stunned, but when I saw Tammy [McCall-Browning] on the ground, I sprung into EMT mode and went to help her. I took her pulse, checked her breathing, and determined she did not need CPR, so I just stayed by her side until the ambulance arrived. It could have been much worse.”
From Porsha‘s twerking to the terrible edit job to Glen‘s behavior, this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was hard to watch. (Newsflash RHOA Producers: reality TV is supposed to be fun, not exhausting!) Thankfully, both Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore took to Twitter and Instagram to fill us in on what the edit failed to show.
When asked by a viewer if her opinion changed after watching the show, Kandisaid, “I feel he needed to leave. Calling us bitches & hoes & acting crazy…. hell naw. He needed to go.” She added, “There were a few more things he said that they are not even showing. Crazy!”
Nida didn’t mince words when he went on Instagram to let ‘er rip about his feelings towards Peter. “CRAZY WORLD RIGHT!! I GUESS IT’s TRUE THAT IN TIME ONE WILL SEE WHOM THEIR FAKE FRIENDS REALLY ARE!!” Peter apparently saw the rant and wasted no time in responding to the man, whom he still considered to be a friend stating, “Wow!! Fake friend, never that, my number hasn’t change. Still holding it down for everyone I love, including you my brother @apollonida03.”
When the former Real Housewives of Atlantaco-star NeNe Leakesappeared on the daytime chatfest, The View, last month, she felt a chill in the air and according to her, the strongest breeze was coming from co-host Raven-Symoné’s direction. The often opinionated statuesque diva, who recently appeared on Bravo’sWatch What Happens Liveshow told Andy Cohen that all of The View’s female cohosts were “not kind” to her. Even though NeNe Ophelia Leakes is claiming, the chatty co-hosts guzzled hateration during her segment, Raven-Simone offered her an ‘apology’ viaE! Newsbut really doesn’t understand, how the celeb felt she was given the side-eye.
NeNe, who is certainly not known for finessing her words, spilled the tea-hee-hee on what went on during her guest segment on the popular ABC-TV show. The show’s producers asked NeNe to appear on the show to primarily promote her co-starring role on the Broadway hit, Chicago. The segment got off to a rocky start with Joy complaining how NeNe’s jewelry injured her shoulder, as she walked out to greet each of them. When the women discussed marriage, Joy threw NeNe for a loop when she asked why she divorced her husband Gregg in the first place, viewers could see discomfort written all across her over-made-up face. In true NeNe form however, she snapped back, informing especially Joy, how she had to teach Gregg a lesson. “What kind of lesson,” Joy sarcastically asked. NeNe’s retort, “A lot of them…to never cross me in the wrong way, how about that!”
