About NeNe Leakes saying she’s not a good fit for RHOA, Kim shared, “NeNe helped build this house; of course her opinion is valid.” That said, she added, “I don’t believe I was invited to this show to fit in, but be myself… which has gotten an enormous amount of support.” #BLOOP
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.”
I’m surprised Porsha found herself seated so close to Andy Cohen. Even though she had plenty of drama with Cynthia Bailey early on through most of the season she’s been staying out of it. Most of the mayhem this season has been between Kenya Moore and Kim Fields.
Also this week, Kandi took a minute (which is more than the topic deserved) to respond to the backlash over her decision to not console NeNe Leakes at the Real Housewives of Atlantareunion. “Overall, Nene and I had been arguing that whole day and I am not the person that she would have wanted to console her,” Kandi told Page Six. “And secondly, if the shoe was on the other foot, she would not have come to console me.” I could not agree more.

Following part one, Bravo asked Claudia if she was surprised by Porsha.
“Absolutely not,” shared Claudia. “She’s been quite stank all season. The last time I was surprised at her actions was when we met for lunch way back in the very beginning of the season, because up until a week prior, I thought we were cool enough. Not friends or besties … but cordial acquaintances. But when she kept doing little catty things, I saw what it was.”
NeNe Leakes stopped by New York Live to talk about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Of course NeNe has a lot to say now that she doesn’t have anyone to challenge her on her own little press tour. When asked to accept responsibility for her words and actions on the reunion, however, all she had to say was, “You’re right. I’m wrong.” Typical NeNe.
NeNe shared her thoughts on the “gang ups” on the reunion, jealousy from her co-stars, the newer cast versus the original cast, and more. About the reunion, she shared, “There was definitely gang ups and I kind of understand. I’ve been there since the beginning and a lot of girls come on this show and they are like, “OK, let me take NeNe on, that’s the first one I’m gonna get.'”
Apollo Nida‘s legal issues were the main focus of the Real Housewives of Atlanta season premiere, but we did get to see little bits of what the other cast members have been up to since the reunion. Cynthia Bailey, who’s on the hunt for a new best friend, followed the scent of loneliness and ended up on Kenya Moore‘s doorstep.
I imagined Cynthia saying to herself, ‘I shall call her Krazy, and she shall be mine, and she shall be my Krazy.’ HaHa. Don’t get me wrong, though, Kenya‘s crazy is the only reason I watch RHOA. Kenya took to her blog to share her thoughts on the season premiere. Including titles: RIP Baby Velvet, Detroit vs. Everybody Else, Ignorance is not a Handicap, Promise to Detroit Children, and Love Me or Hate Me. So dramatic. So Kenya. Here we go.
Is it true? Has the day really come? Can I finally stop talking about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? I mean, how many hours of this three-ring circus have we been subjected to? What was last night hour 475? I chugged a 5 Hour Energy drink vodka soda and settled in for two hours of she-said/she-said-you're dumb-annnnd now here comes the husbands! Oh and the husbands, they sure showed up. Or at least Apollo Nida did. He was gunning for Kenya Moore's title as Queen of the Krazies!
Of all the things that happened last night it was the deafening silence of Kenya in the wake of Phaedra Parks' atomic bomb of verbal destruction. At some point, Kenya, realizing she had not a friend in the eaves, gave up. She just resorted to the silent game, but it was because she was trying not to cry.
Kenya can match any of these broads with her outlandishness, wild accusations, and sheer commitment to getting the job done. NeNe Leakes is easy – she's all loud buffoonery and nebulous threats. Kandi Burruss is just gonna say her bit – loudly – and then get teary eyed, but nobody hates Kandi enough to truly come for her. Cynthia Bailey perpetually wears an expression that says, 'Please don't kick me – I'm already down!" there's no satisfaction in gunning for her. And Porsha Stewart, well, she just gets louder and wilder and self-destructs on a comical level. But Phaedra… Phaedra does not shake.
