There’s been a lot of conflicting reports about the status of Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida‘s marriage. Phaedra has not been to visit Apollo since he was incarcerated, but apparently the two are talking and she plans to arrange a visit soon!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star was recently spotted out and about, still wearing her wedding ring despite purportedly filing for divorce (no papers have been filed yet), Phaedra kept it casual when asked about a Christmas visit to the penitentiary, “I would love to,” she said neutrally.
Phaedra said the same thing when asked about bringing her sons to see Apollo.
Is Porsha Williams about to join Kim Zolciak in the box seats at NFL games?! If there’s one way to get back on Real Housewives Of Atlanta in a full-time role it’s dating (and marrying) a professional athlete – but only if he’ll actually appear on the show. We don’t want no more mystery men!
Of course, Porsha has been down that road before when she was briefly Mrs. Kordell Stewart, but that didn’t go so well. Apparently once bitten doesn’t always mean twice shy where professional athletes are concerned, but it does apply to airing your relationship drama on reality TV!
NeNe Leakes wishes people would only talk about how she’s a Broadway actress (you knew that, right?), but instead everybody wants to know what’s going on with Real Housewives Of Atlanta – most specifically her ex-friendship with Cynthia Bailey, who Andy Cohen likes the best, and her relationship with Teresa Giudice.
NeNe reveals that all the animosity viewers see on RHOA is legit! “The hate is real – the hate is really real,” NeNe announces. She says during her Broadway run she does not watch the show, “I don’t want to get caught up in the negativity.” Instead she relies on social media for information.
“We have our differences but in some big instances I will be there for support. Except when it comes to supporting Detroit Public Schools. I did it out of the goodness of my heart.” NeNe reminds us that she supported Kandi‘s sex toy line, Cynthia’s Bailey Agency opening, and supporting Porsha through her divorce and issues with Kenya.
Also involved to lend support to the important message were Derek J,Miss Lawrence, and Kenya’s assistant Brandon (he of the Apollo Nida beat-down). Claudia announced on instagram that the PSA would actually be “coming soon to the White House!”
Things pick up where they left off with NeNe Leakes bursting into tears – I firmly believe it was the false eyelash glue – before bellowing at Cynthia about how she has been scorned, left adrift in a desert of vicious reality television vultures waiting to pick the bones of her success and that she has arisen again like a falcon from the fiery depths of a barren civilization filed with predator silicone monsters in discount Louboutaaaans and the weaves stolen from the corpses of past Housewives but NeNe has praaaaayed for Cynthia’s redemption, but she is nothing but prey for those with agendas to destroy.
NeNe Leakes will be the first to admit she has used Real Housewives Of Atlanta to her advantage to leverage a pretty spectacular career – and now other reality stars are following suit. In a battle of veteran vs. virgin, NeNe talks how reality TV has changed, while Claudia Jordan reflects on her first season.
“I would like to say I’ve grown,” NeNe says. Of being an influential black woman on TV, she says, “Reality television has been both negative and positive. When our show first started, it was mostly positive. Even though we got in your face, it was never a fist fight,” NeNe recalls. No, not a fist fight – just a wig tug courtesy of She by SheBroke! Or a plonk and a bloop and poke your eyes out, courtesy of NeNe!
NeNe shared that the defrauding former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star brought her 4 daughters to a performance of the show and they had a great time. “My girl came to Cinderella last nite with her daughters to support me! I love seeing her. She looks so good & she’s a super strong woman,” NeNe gushed on Instagram.
Apparently in the months since Teresa was sentenced she’s become good friends with the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has been a staunch supporter of Teresa for years. <side eye>
Cynthia Bailey is tired of being seen and not heard, which is exactly how she feels her “non-conversation” with NeNe Leakes went on this week’s episode. Calling her former friend a person who seeks out other miserable people, Cynthia is tired of taking the blame for their friendship falling apart – but she’s not sorry to be rid of NeNe!
Cynthia complains that NeNe is having trouble accepting that their friendship has come to an end, and is now acting as if she did nothing to contribute to that demise. “One of the last things that I recall saying at the reunion was that I believed my friendship with NeNe had come to the end of the road,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star admits.
“I was happy to let bygones be bygones, wish everyone well, and move on with my life,” Cynthia says. “I felt that too many boundaries had been crossed and chose to no longer accept friendships plagued with violations and disrespect.”
