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.
Tonight is the final episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. And after being in the forefront of the bitchy drama all season, the husbands will take the stage to give their opinions on the mayhem!
Apollo Nida will also discuss the criminal allegations against him and, once again, face off against Kenya Moore regarding 'sext-gate'. And NeNe Leakes will get a chance to make amends with Peter Thomas – or will she? Likely not! Bloop! Plonk! Bloop!
NeNe will also get in an argument with Kandi Burruss over some of NeNe's comments about Mama Joyce.
Not to channel my inner Jerry Orbach (the Dirty Dancing one, not the Law and Order one…clearly I have both!), but when I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong. I honestly never thought that former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak would last three weeks withKroy Biermann. To me, their relationship screamed story line.
However, a few years, spin-off, and umpteen babies later, I do think the couple is genuinely happy and in love. I hate that I was such a cynic. Kim has been Kroy's biggest supporter on and off the field, and now she's gearing up for his latest NFL season.
This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charmreunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed.
Kim has apparently been keeping tabs on Real Housewives of Atlanta despite her solo reality show, and she slammed Kenya for being a copycat! When Kenya referred to NeNe as "Moose" on the RHOA reunion, Kim derided Kenya for stealing her pet name for NeNe!
Yesterday while appearing on The View, Porsha called Kenya's scepter and bullhorn "weapons". Porsha claimed the scepter was "super heavy" and could knock someone out (as could Porsha's brand new balloons apppprrrntly) and furthermore said scepter was being waved in her face. Well, of course Kenya is calling BS on that ridiculous claim.
Things haven't been going in Apollo Nida's favor as of late, that's for sure, but could a potential conviction put a kink in wife Phaedra Parks' lifestyle? It's bad enough she may lose her husband to the clink, but what if his alleged actions also put her assets in jeopardy?
We all know the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has a good (and super sassy) head on her shoulders, and as a lawyer she knows how to keep her business from co-mingling with that of her husband's. That knowledge could serve her well in the event he has to serve time. Plus, she's got that mortuary science degree working for her, right?
