The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion aired a while ago, but I am still reeling from THE LIES (said in a Kandi Burrussvoice) that came undone. I’m sure Kandi feels somewhat vindicated after Phaedra Parks (reluctantly) admitted that she lied to Porsha Williams about Kandi’s attempt to drug and rape Porsha, but it was still a tough year. In fact, Kandi almost quit the show.
I have no idea what “almost quitting” means. I feel like pretty much every longtime housewife “speaks out” about “considering leaving” the show at some point. I don’t know if it’s a play for attention, an increased salary, or a genuine revelation, but it’s just all too common. Nevertheless, this Kandi situation is one of the most (if not the most) extreme story lines in Real Housewives history. So I don’t blame her for wanting to walk out. It’s not like she needs the money.
Of course, just when Phaedra is emotionally done with all things Apollo, she’s forced to confront him again in court with a re-divorce. “[The divorce] was finalized last year in July so of course that obviously made me assume I had regained my independence and a new start,” she admits. “So to be placed back into a position where I have to do it all over again … it’s disheartening, but it’s a process and I can’t obviously change it.”
The breakup between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is the divorce that will never end. I have never felt so worn out from someone else’s relationship. I also never realized that someone’s divorce status could be so murky. You’re either divorced or you’re not divorced – right? Or at least that is what I naively thought until this breakup began to unravel.
Now, Apollo is contesting the prenuptial agreement from his jail cell.
Phaedra is an attorney, so I’m sure that agreement is iron clad, but then again I never thought a lawyer would be so foolish to slander someone’s reputation the way Phaedra has. So maybe I’ve just been putting way too much stock into Phaedra’s law degree (and character) this whole time.
Since that mess appeared before the eyes of millions of judging viewers, Kandi asked the judge if she could file a counter suit accusing Johnnie of defamation of character for disparaging her business and reputation.
Andy all but admits the cast united against Phaedra Obviously- who would trust working with her after that?! Phaedra is already slippery when not wet – now she’s basically spoiled buttermilk curdling the cake!
Phaedra guffawed that she needs to hook up a lie detector test up to some vaginal lips – and isn’t that so ironic?! Girl… you need one here, down there, and everywhere… from your tiny baby toe, to your eyebrow!
Phaedra claims it was production who informed her that Kandi planned to drug and rape Porsha Williams and she only repeated the claim to protect her friend. However, Phaedra believes producers planted the lie on her. Why – did they want her to get fired? Are they colluding with Apollo?
