Season ten of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta is already bringing the drama, and we’re only two weeks in! With cast members forming alliances based on old wounds, plus boomeranging housewives NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann back to liven things up, Porsha Williams is ready to rumble. But the new post-anger-management-Porsha says her go-to move this year is standing still while the storm rages around her.
Porsha visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to talk about her feelings on NeNe’s return, why Kandi Burruss mocking her “medical condition” shocked her, and whether she’s talked to ShaedraPhaedra Parks recently. Also – Porsha explains why megaphones still trigger her to this day! Kenya Moore’s props department is on notice, we presume.
After the last Real Housewives of Atlanta season was centered around Kandi Burruss, this current one seems like a breeze for her two episodes in. That’s probably because most of Kandi’s drama is playing out on the docuseries with her girl group Xscape. The tension between Kandi and these ladies rivals the tension between Kandi and Porsha Williams on RHOA.
There seems to be a lot of love there, but there are issues over the past and the present that the ladies still don’t seem to agree on. So of course Andy Cohen was stirring up the pot when Kandi and the rest of the group stopped by the Bravo clubhouse to tape a Watch What Happens Live episode.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss had a lot to smile about this weekend! The reality star, singer, restaurant owner, and songwriter (among the many other hats she wears) was photographed at Revel in Atlanta, where she was showing off her newest achievement: being chosen as the ESSENCE magazine cover feature for October!
Hand me some smelling salts, cause I have the vapors after part 4 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Well all knew it was coming, but somehow seeing Phaedra Parks expose herself as a bonafide liar and a fraud of the sort that even surpasses Housewives nastiness was still a shock! And I don’t even know what to call her, an emotionless vessel of shade that has reached its sell-by date, but that nonsense went TOO FAR! Actually it went beyond crossing the line into crossing the galaxy.
There we all are, sitting on the reunion stage in our sparkly dresses, with our hair all puffed up, and our smirks frozen into irritated condescension, our voices permanently poised at a register for battle and self-defense, when out PorshaWilliams came out with the revelation Phaedra is the one who told her of Kandi Burruss‘ alleged plan to drug and rape her one fateful night. Phaedra related that she heard this information this directly from the Kandi Factory – more specifically from Kandi’s mouth.
Since this was no word on the street, Porsha decided it was believable, and “asked” Kandi about it in front of millions, then spent months defending herself against accusations that she’s a liar.
After a whole season of Porsha Williams claiming that “someone” told her that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape her, I (and many other viewers) just assumed that she was making all of that up to get some screen time and bring down Kandi. Needless to say, I was shocked when Porsha outed her “best friend” Phaedra Parks as the one who started that rumor during part three of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.
Am I surprised that Phaedra did this? No. Not at all, especially at this point, but I am surprised that Porsha didn’t take the fall for Phaedra like she always does. Porsha didn’t out Phaedra for starting those rumors about Kandi and Shamea Morton having an affair, so I really couldn’t believe it when she revealed that Phaedra did this. My jaw dropped. Part four of the reunion cannot be here soon enough.
And of course, tacked onto the very tail end was the astounding revelation that, for some God-forsaken reason, Jesus, or possibly the devil put it into Phaedra Parks‘ prayer cloth that she should start a totally baseless rumor that Kandi Burruss is a secret lesbian menage-a-trois stalker who plotted to drug and rape Porsha Williams. Yep – fun times in libel-land from everybody’s favorite lawless lawyer!
Apparently earlier this year, Phaedra told poor, innocent, unsuspecting (Ha!) Porsha this lurid tale, then sat back on her donkey booty through the entire season to watch as Porsha defended herself and kept Phaedra’s confidences. And never, ever, not once, did Phaedra utter a word that it was SHE who started this rumor about Kandi. I’m sure Phaedra will handily dismiss it as “shade,” or something she heard ‘on the streets,’ then swat it away with her handbag, give herself a spritz of holy water then waltz into the church pew for some restoration. Except honey-butt: NO – you have burned the place down. Call Willie Watkins and fire up the band cause this big, ole fraudulent lie was your Phuneral By Phaedra!
The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
