I knew the peace between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore was too good to be true. I enjoyed watching them get along this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I just didn’t think it was going to happen on the group trip to Hawaii. They seemed to be on good terms – until Kenya threw that divorce party in her honor.
I see both sides on this one. Kenya was just trying to encourage optimism and growth during a tough transitional period. Still, I understand why Phaedra would not want to “celebrate” the end of her marriage and co-parenting with an ex-husband who is in prison.
Sure, a divorce is an odd thing to celebrate, but I think I understood the point Kenya intended to make with the party — she just wanted to support Phaedra and Cynthia during this transitional period of their lives. I also get why Phaedra could find it to be insensitive. I just don’t get why Phaedra handled her disappointment the way that she did. Pretending to look for ginger ale and then name calling ginger ale was NOT the best move to make.
I have no idea how interesting these episodes will be since these four ladies all seem to get along well, but I guess we will find out soon enough. I just wish that Jacqueline Laurita or Danielle Staub were there to keep things interesting, but I don’t blame Melissa for wanting to celebrate her birthday in peace.
Erika stopped by Watch What Happens Live to address the intense episode with Andy Cohen and fellow guest, Real Housewives fanatic Megan McCain. I have to admit that I am an Erika Jayne fan, so it was tough for me to watch. It was the first time in Erika’s two years on the show when I found it difficult to back her up. I was nervous about the (deserved) backlash that she was bound to get for flipping out at Eileen for no reason.
If you’ll recall, Alexia Echevarria’s estranged husband Herman Echevarria was found dead in a Miami hotel room in September 2016. His cause of death was unclear with some people speculating that he might have had a heart attack. Not only has the former Real Housewives of Miami star been coping with this loss, but now she is at odds with Herman’s two sons.
Alexia is filing an injunction against Herman’s sons, Nelson and Herman, because they are attempting to seize her mansion and her Maserati. To make matters even more complicated, Alexia and Herman were separated, but still technically married and working together professionally until the day he died. To describe the situation as “complicated” would be a major understatement.
After the end of a rough time on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I’m pretty surprised Yolanda Hadid would want to return to reality TV. Then again, she is going to star in a show about models and their moms, so that seems like a pretty cushy deal for her to pass up.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Yolanda is the mom to supermodelsGigi Hadid and Bella Hadid. Her son Anwar Hadid has also started modeling. I’m sure he will reach supermodel status as well. This seems like a way better fit for Yolanda than arguing with women at dinner parties and being forced to prove that she has a chronic illness.
One of the most exciting things about waiting for a new season of Real Housewives to start is the reveal of the cast member taglines. To be honest, the first season of Real Housewives of Potomac wasn’t the greatest, but I’m optimistic about Season 2 after seeing the trailer.
For the most part, I am actually pretty entertained by the ladies’ taglines for the upcoming season. Let’s just hope that they deliver when it comes to bringing the drama. This is their last chance- in my eyes at least. Thankfully (most of) the taglines are pretty promising.
I figured that Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’sdaughter Delilah Belle Hamlin was set to join the ranks of the other Real Housewives kids who have become famous models and opting to skip the school route, but she has applied to colleges just like other normal high-schoolers.
I have no idea if she will attend college or if she just applied to keep her options open while she works on her modeling career, but Lisa shared some nice news in a recent Instagram post.
