As per usual, Kim denied getting her nose done and threw some insults at Kenya Moore. She addressed her son Kash‘s trip to the emergency room after he was attacked by a dog. She also attempted to clear up that weird tweet she sent to Chrissy Teigen offering up her daughter Brielle Biermann for oral sex to get John Legend tickets. Basically, she was laying the framework to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta next year.
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.
Sheree Whitfield might have carried a bone or three on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta this season, but she’s keeping herself out of the reunion drama pretty deftly. Plus – she’s got enough on her plate with ex-husband Bob Whitfield showing up to offer apologies and hover behind the couch like grade A creeper.
In her blog, Sheree focuses on her past domestic abuse coming to light, and how she’s ultimately made peace with the subject. (Although she still hasn’t spoken to her kids about it.) Sheree explains why she kept mum on the physical violence in her marriage for so long: “I would have never spoken on that part of my relationship with Bob if he hadn’t brought it up. I always wanted to protect my family and kids from that. I didn’t want to taint the image of their dad by how he acted in our marriage. So I just remained silent for many years.”
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.
I feel like it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives reunion if one cast member didn’t pull the “bully” card for virtually no reason. After a season of pot stirring, rumor spreading, and straight up lying, Porsha Williams became the latest person to do this on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. To be honest it seemed like a last ditch effort to deflect from all of the trouble she got into this season.
Cynthia Bailey was obviously offended by Porsha’s bullying accusations. But then again the reunion could have been way worse for Cynthia. The other cast members are definitely struggling a lot more. Speaking of the struggle, pretty much everyone felt for Sheree Whitfield when she opened up about the abuse from Bob Whitfield. I still don’t get why she was not sympathetic toward Kenya Moore, but I guess that’s a slightly different situation.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
What can be said about the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion except that everyone hates each other? In Part 2, Andy Cohen put on his “compassion” mask, to make faces more concerned than usual, because the main topic was relationships. And on this show ain’t none of them going well!
My favorite thing was learning that Phaedra’s middle name is “Creonta!” GIRL, hi! Actually Girl HEEEELLLLOOO! What a name?! And then Phaedra names her sons Dylan and Ayden – like the two most normal little boy names ever? HA.
