A caller asks Kenya why she felt the need to attack Sheree week one.
“I don’t think I went hard on Sheree,” says Kenya “who me?” Moore. “I think that I was just answering the questions that were asked. Even on this episode, we saw Kandi [Burruss] talking about Porsha [Williams]‘s guy dating some transgender. We’ve heard girls talk about other girls and deliver the news. I was just delivering the news. You cannot blame me for that.”
Kim has admitted that joining Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a culture shock, and with all the crazy unfolding this season she stepped in to steer these girls straight.
“I don’t know that I wanted to be the mother bear,” Kim laughs. “I think that I’ve always been a nurturing kind of person. I’ll be prepared with snacks and a towel if we’re going to the lake. I think it’s more just from that prepared kind of thing, or you know, voice of reason sometimes.”
After a hiatus from RHOA, Sheree is back and ready to face the Twirl. She just didn’t know she was going to face it as soon as she laid eyes on Ms. Moore! Sheree shares, “What did I just walk into? Let me start by saying that I’ve met Kenya once or twice in passing through our mutual friend. It was only a hello! I’ve never sat and had a drink with her, broke bread with her, or had a conversation with her, so of course I was completely caught off guard and just as surprised as the other girls that someone would go into attack mode after less than two minutes of being in my presence when they didn’t know me! I knew she would be intimidated by my return.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicked off the premiere this week by diving right into the video of Peter Thomas that surfaced (a little too coincidentally) right as filming started for the new season. Cynthia Bailey shares in her blog this week that the situation has been painful to deal with.
Cynthia explained, “It was extremely difficult dealing with the video of Peter. No woman (or man for that matter) expects (or hopes) to see her or his spouse appear to be cheating or having an indiscretion in a video. Especially one that has gone viral! How would one prepare for this? I was confused, shocked, hurt, and humiliated at the same time. Then I just became pissed at Peter for his recklessness, inconsideration, and carelessness. Of course I let Peter have it. I was furious! Peter and I are in the public eye, so in addition to dealing with this personally, I had to deal with it publicly as well. I had to dig deep, and ask myself a lot of heavy questions about my relationship and whether or not it would survive.” I’m not sure I’d call the reality blogs “going viral” but whatever…
Last night Real Housewives Of Atlanta returned to us and brought with it Sheree Whitfield! (Which means I get to bust out my trusty #SheByShebroke hashtag again. YESSSSS.) And like two cats in an alley fighting over the remaining sardine of a storyline, Kenya Moore and Sheree are going at it, clawing at each other over who is more delusional and broke.
There is no greater irony than Kenya throwing Sheree’s delusional behavior in her face. Need I remind you all about Krayonce’s Rent-A-Boyfriends 1, 2, and 3, the charade of Life Twirls On, her fake booty, mystery African princes, Walter, and eviction from the home she so-called ‘owned’… But oh, how I adore that Kenya has met her match in shade, delusion, and sheer desperation to GO. THERE. in Sheree! These two are going to be an explosion of delight this season. And I am here for it – popcorn ready. To quote Kenya, “Nom, nom, nom…”
Season 7 was supposed to be about moving on, moving forward, and finally leaving the past behind, but instead it often felt as if we were experiencing Deja-View. As in didn’t we already cover Kenya Moore vs. Phaedra Parks arguing over Whoregate and Apollo Nida?
Of course not everything was the same – speaking of Apollo – in the middle of the season he self-surrendered to federal prison in Lexington, KY to begin serving an 8-year fraud sentence.
Has Kim Fields abandoned acting to act a fool on Real Housewives Of Atlanta? Not a chance! The former child superstar, will make her Housewives and reality television debut this Sunday, and Kim will not be twirling her way into any unscrupulous drama.
As the season grows closer to premiering, Kim’s hair seems to grow bigger and bigger… Preemptive shock? We are entering Diana Ross territory, meaning amazingness. Sitting down with Wendy Williams, while wearing a custom-made “Blessed” dress, Kim makes it clear that’s how she feels about life and the opportunity to be part of Real Housewives Of Atlanta.
