Kenya and Phaedra finally managed to find some resolution to the drama that spurned from Apollo Nida and the case of what may or may not have been an inappropriate relationship (and texting), but definitely featured some inappropriate flirting and some seriously venomous insults on both sides! All in all it was a cesspool of regrettable actions that needed to be cleansed!
Whether or not Kenya and Phaedra will ever be BFF (or even acquaintances), both ladies are relieved to have talked, sincerely opened-up, and feel at peace with what transpired in the Philippines.
It’s either raining Real Housewives Of Atlanta spinoffs over at Bravo! Or some people just thirsty for attention… Claudia Jordan recently hinted on instagram that she may be headed for her own solo show. Lifestyles Of A Bunionista, anyone?! Meanwhile Kandi Burruss is ready to move into the motivational speaking realm of things and wants to share what she’s learned from her successes and failures – reality TV included!
First up, Claudia! The newbie RHOA star enjoyed Easter brunch with producers Carlos King and Brent Nisbett (who also produce Hollywood Divas with Todd Tucker!) and she announced that “may be” a spinoff is coming…
There have been several rumors that Claudia (who knew Carlos) was cast on the show specifically to cause conflict (with a certain Housewife who has since issued her a C&D letter) and was coached by producers. As a result of some acrimonious situations (some of which were edited out) and the vociferous complaints of other Housewives about favortism and storyline manipulations, an EVP was let-go. Carlos even did an interview promising that Claudia would bring the drama. However, NeNe Leakes has a longtime friendship with Princess Banton-Lofters, the creator of RHOA…
The girls are still in Manila at the uber 5-star peace and progress drama rehab. It’s minutes before they’re supposed to check out but Kenya is still soaking up that last 5 minutes of attention whoring (see what I did there?! LOL) by wandering around the pool in a bikini showing her butt crack to maximum Maxim. What was it Krayonce was screaming about coochie and butt crack? Anyway — that’s all in the past – she wants us to conveniently forget all of her past indiscretions. Hey I will, I want to, let’s move ON! However, if Kenya wants to show Porsha Williams that while she is the one dressed like a THOT on instagram, Kenya was a THOT of the oldschool on such magazines as STUFF and FHM, I’ll go along.
Kenya twirls back to her suite, escorting Claudia Jordan and Cynthia Bailey, the smoke in her tilt-a-twirl’s line of fire. There they discuss the marvel of Phaedra finally talking to Kenya! Claudia secret-smiles over how amazing she is for bringing peace to the group, then our simpering sycophant tells Kenya how much she deserves the apology for all she has put-up with. OK, seriously?
Kenya’s ire towards Brandi started after Andy asked Brandi what it was like working with Krayonce on CA. Brandi, of course, didn’t try to make nice. Instead she called Kenya “crazy” and “evil” and Kenya unleashed her tirade on twitter! “LOL this woman is still talking about me #obsessedmuch #RHOBH” Kenya wrote.
Porsha Williams meant it when she said in therapy she wanted to move on from everyone’s issues. So when the Real Housewives Of Atlanta cast landed in Manila she was disappointed that Claudia Jordan tried to turn dinner into yet another therapy session – this one involving Phaedra Parks! Although she praises Claudia for the positive vacation, Porsha doesn’t believe Claudia should be meddling in whatever issues Phaedra has going on with Cynthia Bailey or Kenya Moore!
On this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta the tepid steps were taken towards resolution in the longtime feud between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks! Kenya admits she’s surprised by Phaedra’s willingness to finally hear her out, meanwhile Phaedra is dishing on hopefully resolving issues with Kandi Burruss.
Admitting she was “very surprised” Phaedra finally agreed to have a conversation with her, Kenya is hopeful she will be embraced by Phaedra as easily as NeNe Leakes was despite all of their issues! Kenya is also hoping for an apology for all the “whore-mongering” – and she credits herself for tirelessly trying to mend things with Phaedra for the change in tides. “I think it’s always good to honestly talk with an open heart and listening ear. It takes too much energy to hold onto the past,” explains Kenya.
“It was confusing to all to see how easily Phaedra forgave NeNe for calling her the head doctor, never acknowledging she even knows her, and calling her dirty besides a few other things,” Kenya reflects. “Yet she has refused to apologize to me or to forgive me after countless attempts to reconcile on my part.”
When asked how she passed the time on the 18-hour flight, Cynthia shared, “I watched four movies, had breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner twice, read five magazines, slept for five hours, and talked Kandi‘s ear off whenever she was awake. Oh yeah, I’m pretty sure I drank a bottle of wine as well. And just when I thought that I could not take it anymore, we still had nine hours left to go!”
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams landed her first major magazine cover with Upscale for their April beauty and style issue. The reality star dishes on everything from being bullied as a kid, wanting to bring attention to real issues and so much more. We have a few snippets from her interview below. For the entire interview (and all of the photos from her shoot), you can pick up the new issue on newsstands soon!
On her childhood and being inspired by her mom: “I grew up living a good life. I was raised by my mom and spent weekends with my dad because they were separated. My mom has always been my biggest inspiration. She taught me that beauty comes from the inside out; but I also know that the outside does matter.”
On being bullied: “My outside beauty wasn’t always so pretty, though. I went to school in DeKalb County, (Chapel Hill Elementary and Junior High) [and] was bullied all through elementary and junior high for being super skinny with big teeth, and, believe it or not, other black girls would tease me and pull my hair because it was long.”
