Despite all appearances to the contrary, Kim Fields insists her trip to DC with the Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a positive experience. As you recall Kim had difficultly wrangling her two sons through Capitol Hill trying to accommodate both congresspeople and nap time!
“Nothing but wonderful things have come from the DC trip!” says Kim who has no regrets about schlepping to the capital without a team in tow!
Todd Tucker wasn’t joking when he devised a plan to open a restaurant featuring Kandi Burruss‘ aunts recipes and call it Old Lady Gang! This is apparently a very real thing.
Todd and Kandi have been hinting about their desire to open a restaurant and Todd finally pitched the idea to Mama Joyce, his newfound BFF, Aunt Nora and Aunt Bertha on last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Todd even suggested advertising the restaurant with a WANTED photo with the OLG! I see no correlation, but um… maybe it’s just me?
According to TMZ, Teresa, who has to adhere to a 10:00 pm curfew as part of her probation, nearly missed her check-in time had it not been for an Uber driver, who was willing to break speed limits to get her home and the merciful cop, who stopped but didn’t ticket them.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, several of the ladies, led by Phaedra Parks, traveled to Washington DC to celebrate the anniversary of the Million Man March, while other ladies remained in Atlanta receiving million dollar guests.
Ayden helps Phaedra pack for the trip, which will involve meeting with several congress members, including Florida representative Frederica Wilson, whose organization inspired Phaedra’s newfound passion, Saving Our Sons.
Andy asks Khloe if she was angry with Lamar Odom for overdosing on drugs in a brothel. “I did not know that particular situation was going to happen, but I always feared that the end result was going to happen. That was obviously a reason why I left the marriage,” she says. “I never imagine that it would be at a brothel and that whole dramatic situation, but I just knew I had to get to his side. I was like, he can’t be there by himself, alone. He’s a great person. His demons are overshadowing what a great heart he has. His soul is still great and he’s a beautiful person. He could not be there alone. I felt like I had to be that person.”
It’s been a week, but I’m still cringing over last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta and the family reunion from hell. I don’t often feel badly for Kenya Moore, but my heart just broke for her as she ambushed her estranged mother to no avail while a partybus full of relatives looked on in shock. Hopefully tonight we’ll get some closure…and the return of NeNe Leakes!
In an interview with Bravo, Kenya shares her feelings of devastation (and promotes her new memoir Invisible) and discusses how much she’s learned about herself in the process. When asked why she chose to plan the family reunion, the twirling reality star explains, “I’ve been open about wanting to have a family of my own since I was added to the cast. I have often regretted exposing myself the way I have, especially with my love life. It left me susceptible to mockery, false rumors, and ridicule (such as I can’t get a man). With that said, I’ve learned the men I’ve dated aren’t the issue — I am the issue. Through the help of counseling, seminars, and advice from people I love and respect, I knew it was time to dig deeper into my past. As such, that meant exploring my primary relationships and how they are connected to my romantic relationships. I needed to heal from the inside out, and realized I need my family to do so.”
Phaedra Parks‘ friendship with Kandi Burruss has been on rocky terrain as of late between huzzzzband drama, checks that haven’t come, and shady comments. Despite the issues Phaedra promises they will always remain friends and share a “rich history” together. Rich, eh?
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband? Despite the real issues at stake (so Cynthia claims), the drama surrounding the couple’s relationship sometimes come off as manufactured at best, and boring at worst.
