Kenya explained her emotional reaction to the gossip about Phaedra and Mr. Chocolate. She added that she felt vindicated once again. “I’d moved on and forgave Phaedra for all of the lies she single handedly fabricated about me,” she insisted. “When Cynthia told me of Apollo’s latest findings, I didn’t doubt it, as I have experienced what she is capable of first hand. My emotional reaction was based on anger not pain. I thought, ‘The nerve of her!’ She went on a slut shaming, whore-calling campaign without any proof, and now that Apollo caught her with sticky fingers dipped in chocolate, I felt vindicated yet again. I don’t care about their relationship or how many men Phaedra chooses to sleep with, that is her cross to bear.”
She By SheBroke has re-branded herself as a “fitness coach,” – finally – but cannot recover from the heartbreak of Bob Whitfield‘s missing seven-figures, so she’s never moved on after their divorce. Instead Sheree hardened her exterior shell, along with her heart, and Patti dubs her a “crockpot woman,” because she’s so slow to warm up.
Nonetheless Sheree is relying on Patti to help her find that “instant connection.” The butterflies, the tingles, which Sheree says she’s never had. You mean Bob never gave her tingles?! No… “When I love, I love hard,” promises Sheree. And when she divorces, she divorces hard too… In fact, Sheree might as well come with a disclaimer: Court is my extracurricular activity! Paying bills… that’s your job!
Sadly, Sheree never even gets to the love stage, because she slams the door shut before anyone can peek inside.
Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s “Chocolate Tales” have taken on Willy Wonkian-proportions. Apparently no one fact checked their golden ticket to drama before dipping a toe into the chocolate river. Are Housewives required the same due-diligence as researchers when regarding inner-personal matters of distorted rumors? Can one rely on Apollo for any sort of “evidence” – particularly in regards to “texes.” Never fear – Dr. NeNe Leakes has the cure!
According to Cynthia, she simply brought up the affair situation because they were having a group “conversation” and she wanted to know if it was true. If Phaedra is involved with Prince Chocolatier from the ChocAfrica, she should have just admitted it! Cause they would all be so accepting and supportive, uh-huh.
Porsha Williams is remaining loyal to Phaedra Parks and calling out Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore for spreading rumors about Phaedra allegedly cheating with the latest mysterious African, Mr. Chocolate. Porsha describes Cynthia’s actions as “awful” and warns her – karma is a’comin! Hasn’t karma already arrived and been calling itself “Peter“?
Accusing Cynthia of being “beyond out of line,” Porsha expected Cynthia to display some compassion to her fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta co-star. “Cynthia has a daughter and husband herself; if it were her family being ripped apart she would expect nothing but prayer and support. However, she decided to completely try to slander and tear down a fellow sister at her toughest hour!”
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.”
