Happy Friday, readers! We’re starting off the long weekend by checking out what the reality stars have been up to all week. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss and her daughter Riley Burruss attended “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” Atlanta premiere at Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta. Also spotted at the event: Mama June Shannon and daughter Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo).
Little Women: LA star Terra Jole (and her new gray hair!) attended opening night of Jersey Boys. Shahs of Sunset stars Shervin Roohparvar and MJ Javid attended Karma International’s 9th Annual Masquerade Ball. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards were both photographed running errands around Beverly Hills. Rinna was also on hand for a Mother’s Day celebration with her husband, Harry Hamlin, and their daughters, Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle.
In today’s reality star picture gallery you’ll also find Erika Jayne attending the Dancing with the Stars finale, Kourtney Kardashian soaking up some sun in Cannes with her new model boyfriend, and more!
This Real Housewives of Atlanta season has been heavily focused on Kandi Burruss. For years she was just there to promote her products and interject here and there when other people got into it, but this season is very Kandi-centered thanks to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams starting rumors that she is a closeted lesbian who hooked up with Shamea Morton. Kandi confronted Porsha about her pot stirring during the last episode.
It wasn’t all drama for Kandi though. At the very least, she seemed to be beaming with pride when her daughter Riley Burruss followed in her musical footsteps and recorded a track of her own. Needless to say, Kandi has a lot to say about the last episode.
Kandi Burruss is getting a lot of heat this season for sharing her opinions, but I feel like it’s about time she opens up after staying quiet for so long. Don’t get me started on her Kandi Koated Clique, but I do think she is usually in the right when it comes to standing up to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. And to be honest, Porsha was out of control during the last episode when she went off against Kandi and Kenya Moore. It sure does not seem like Porsha stuck with those anger management classes.
Kandi doesn’t seem to care about that drama though. I feel like she’s just on RHOAto collect her check and promote her many products. And now that her daughter Riley Burruss is following her musical foot steps, Kandi probably doesn’t have the time for Porsha and her desperate reaches to create story lines. Don’t even get me started on her “relationship” this season. But since Kandiis a Real Housewife, she’s basically required to share her opinions on what goes down and that includes Porsha’s anger issues.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta only just started, but there is no shortage of drama. Every single woman in the cast is bringing their A-game. They all have a lot going on own their own and with each other – which means that they all have a lot of opinions about everyone’s business. So of course Sheree Whitfield has thoughts about Kandi Burruss’s baby daddy drama and Porsha Williams can’t help reacting to Sheree’s fight with Kenya Moore.
I love how much this cast is weaved into each other’s lives – this show makes sense instead of random scenes of people who have nothing to do with each other. Everyone on Real Housewives of Atlanta is looking out for themselves and spilling the tea about everyone else and I am absolutely living for it.
Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers are seeing a lot of Kandi Burruss‘s personal drama this season. Poor Kandi – her mom and her husband are finally getting along and now she has baby daddy drama to deal with. A lot of the time, it seems like reality TV plot lines are contrived and manipulated, but you can tell Kandi is genuinely torn up about her daughter’s biological father Block Spencer coming back on the scene.
I find it shady as hell that this man who is supposedly successful in the music industry wants to be in his daughter’s life all of a sudden – in front of reality TV cameras. He couldn’t try to contact her in-between seasons? It seems extremely opportunistic and I can’t help feeling sad for Kandi’s daughter Riley Burruss. And on top of that the always outspoken Mama Joyce has had no issue sharing her opinions with Kandi, so it’s clearly going to be a drama-filled season for Kandi.
Also this week, Kandi took a minute (which is more than the topic deserved) to respond to the backlash over her decision to not console NeNe Leakes at the Real Housewives of Atlantareunion. “Overall, Nene and I had been arguing that whole day and I am not the person that she would have wanted to console her,” Kandi told Page Six. “And secondly, if the shoe was on the other foot, she would not have come to console me.” I could not agree more.
