So Phaedra Parks is a bit less, um, genteel this season, wouldn’t you say? Don’t get me wrong, she’s still wants to seem like a refined Southern Belle, but her words are more Mad Dog 20/20 even if her voice is as smooth as a mint julep. Come to think of it, most Southern ladies (myself included) can be that way, so maybe she’s right on point!
I do know, however, that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s next career path should be that of a tree farmer. Phaedra is all about the shade this season! Granted she’s been through a lot with the Apollo drama, but I think she may just be coming a bit more out of her shell! Ooh how she came at Kenya Moore on this week’s episode, and Krayonce wasn’t even wielding a bullhorn!
I will be the first to admit it – I never tire of the delusional ego of NeNe Leakes. I’m not sure why, but she amuses me to no end with her holier than thou attitude and ability to throw stones while living in a glass! Reflecting on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, NeNe calls out Cynthia Bailey on the obvious and calls out other people -ahem, ahem Kenya Moore – on the hypocrite act!
Without naming too many names, NeNe alludes to the misdeeds of others. “It always amazes me how these ladies like to point fingers. It’s always somebody else’s fault rather than admitting, ‘Yeah I was wrong,’ or, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t have said that at that time,’ or, ‘Maybe I wasn’t there for her because I had my own problems going on,'” lectures NeNe, the Godmother of Housewives everywhere. “It’s always easy to point the finger at your girl NeNe and hope that no one will see their true colors!”
When asked about the Mr. Chocolate rumor, Claudia said, “I really don’t know Phaedra that much to comment on her personal life, but from the little bit I am privy to, I was surprised to hear about an alleged affair considering the extreme criticism that Kenya got.”
“At the end of the day, only two people know what really did or did not happen, and I would love for this group to reserve judgment on everyone until there is confirmation,” continued Claudia. “But I think a precedent had been set a long time ago, so that has opened the door to where we are now. I think it’s easy to believe something negative about someone in the group, because in the past it’s been shown that it takes very little actual evidence or proof for some to jump on that bandwagon.”
Kandi Burruss hasn’t had too many issues with her co-stars yet this season. Most of her drama seems to be focused on husband Todd and her mother, Mama Joyce. That said, Kandi took a little heat from Porsha Williamsduring this week’s episode because she didn’t chase after Phaedra Parks fast enough when she ran out of the group dinner. Kandi addresses that and more in this week’s blog.
Kandi shares that she’s keep a wary eye on NeNe Leakes and her suddenly attentive behavior toward Phaedra. “Of course I’m skeptical. NeNe has been nice these last few months, but that does not make me forget the years of drama and insults that have come from her in the past. Yes, I get that people change, but it’s OK for me to proceed with caution as I would’ve thought Phaedra would. Well, hopefully things will continue to be great with them and NeNe can continue to be Phaedra’s rock.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta some ladies got served retribution and others got served a taste of their own medicine – and some ladies need to take a seat at the kiddie table because they cannot play with the big girls.
Phaedra has several burly bodyguards to keep her safe in a fortress of delusion, just in case “gone asunder” means lurking in the bushes, holding a drill in a menacing way. (Apollo is scary and we did see proof of holes in the wall. Yikes!) Good thing Phaedra has her preacher arrive with a vial of holy water to exorcise this home of its demons.
Andy’s shady boot moment of the night was Porsha Williamsthrowing shade at Kenya for flirting with the waiter. Kenya says “I think that’s sad. I was being friendly to the waiter. I don’t think that I’m above a waiter or staff and to be friendly with someone doesn’t mean that you’re flirting with them.”
Say whatever you want about the dynamic NeNe Leakes but she has taken her Real Housewives Of Atlanta stardom and catapulted it into a new career. NeNe has no time for the haters, but she does have some advice for any wannabe Ms. Leakes – starting with Be Yourself, because there is only ONE NeNe Leakes and don’t you forget it! Bloop!
Confronting rumors that she’s done with Housewives, NeNe admits she’s not ready to abandon RHOA and that she’s confident that she has used this “amazing platform” to the best of her advantage!
“It’s very difficult to be in the public’s eye. You get judged all the time. It’s bittersweet,” NeNe acknowledged. “I just try to remain NeNe and be as humble as I can.” Humble is not the word that comes to mind when I think NeNe… Just me?
