As suspected it appears there is more than meets the eye. Many also asked if these were half-sisters from her mother or father's side, but apparently it's NeNe's mom. And possibly they aren't half-sisters at all but full sisters! Goodness I'm confused. Anyway, here's the latest.
One of NeNe's sisters, Kendle, hopped on her personal Facebook page following the reunion and threatened to expose the real reasons she and NeNe have not spoken in 8 years. NeNe said her sisters want a relationship with her now, and rumors have been abound that she is reconciling with them for a Bravo wedding special.
As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
NeNe accused Phaedra of being in cahoots with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield, with Phaedra seeming like the mastermind because she had a previous acquaintanceship with NeNe's sisters. NeNe was furious and Phaedra was oddly demure, which seemed like an omission of guilt. I've heard gossip about this situation for two years now and I have my own opinions (OPINIONS, people) which I'll share below, but let's hear some alleged behind-the-scene scoops on what went on!
Kim also wants a judge to toss out the lawsuit claiming it has no merit according to TMZ. Kim is adamant that not only has she already fairly compensated Kandi for her services, but she paid in excess by $6,000! Kim also insists that Kandi doesn't even believe her own suit as she is simply attempting to pull a Sheree and use the courts to get attention.
Yesterday was part 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. This segment was all about Wigs Zolciak. And if I had a dollar for all the Kimscuses she makes, I could buy me one of them foreclosed dream homes everyone is talking about!
Phaedra Parks is apparently big news this season. We spent a ton of time running down her shenanigans and she seemed relatively composed for all the heat she took. It's clear the only person Phaedra has extreme distaste for is Kenya Moore.
Things begin with a spotlight on NeNe Leakes, cause just in case you didn't know, she has AAAA-RIVED! Andy Cohen wonders if NeNe plays favorites and takes sides, case in point she seemed to dislike Phaedra andKandi Burruss almost instantly. NeNe claims she never does that, Kandi reminds her that actually she does! We all know she does. NeNe likes people she can control and manipulate. And if it's apparent they don't need her or aren't going to bow down to her greatness, she goes all sour on them. So there's no need for her to even bother denying that!
Real Housewives of Atlanta is coming to a close soon (whatever will we do with our Sunday nights?) but the drama that occurred this season is anything but quiet.
Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes have had an ongoing feud for seasons. And one that no one really understands. Sometimes they seem to get along fine and then all of the sudden they don't like each other? Huh? NeNe has blamed Kandi being a "hater" for the issues, but Kandi seems to hint that it's manufactured drama for the show!
"We don't really have anything to say to each other," Kandi told The Hollywood Reporter of NeNe. "We really don't talk to each other outside of things we're doing for the show. Like I don't really have a problem with her for real. And I don't think she really has a problem with me. But every time I turn around she has something smart to say to me so I just give her the same energy she gives me."
Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss is one busy lady. Not only is she a Grammy winning songwriter, she loves to stir the pot on her RHOA and hawk sex toys while hosting her own radio show. I don't know when she has time to sleep much less star in her own spin-off! The Kandi Factorypremiered Tuesday night on Bravo, and Kandi is convinced that it's head and shoulders above other music competitions.
Did you watch it? The premise is different…and I like it. Kandi mentors two talented singers and provides them with a song she's written to perform. She and her team take them all the way through the recording process before naming one the winner of that night's episode. The weekly winners then go on to compete against one another. Who wouldn't want to get to sing a Kandi original? (Don't answer that, Kim Zolciak!) While I think the idea is awesome, honestly, I couldn't get into the show. While the contestants were cute and kind of talented, I didn't find myself rooting for either of them. Maybe I just felt bad when that poor girl fell, although she kept performing like a trooper–I'll give her that!
That said, I'll certainly give the show another chance because I do love me some Kandi!
