I feel like Shamea Morton should be holding a peach on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is mentioned in pretty much every episode, with no defense from her supposed “best friend” Porsha Williams. Not only is Porsha throwing her BFF under the bus, but she has been coming for Kandi Burruss in the process. Kandi is done with it and she doesn’t believe anything that involves Porsha, including that doctor’s note she brought to the group “glamping” trip.
For a minute, I thought that Porsha seemed like a great friend because of her loyalty to Phaedra Parks. They even had me thinking “#FriendshipGoals” real quick, but that quickly faded when she never actually stood up for her girl Shamea.
We never see Phaedra being lewd in that way, especially with gross sexual hand gestures. So why was she acting “so out of character.” Kandi claims that actually is the real Phaedra and that she, Porsha, and Sheree Whitfield were under the impression that the cameras weren’t rolling during that conversation. How would seasoned reality TV stars not know that they were being filming for their own show? Kandi explained exactly how that works and that it justifies the scandalous gossip that we all got to watch this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It doesn’t matter that the very thought of latrines and paper plates nearly drove everyone to blows over dinner, Phaedra Parks has decided “roughing it” on a glamping trip is just what the group needs to work through their issues. And if not, she’ll put them on toilet digging duty or have them get lost in the woods. Unfortunately, Porsha has been avoiding Phaedra since dinner, over her possible allegiance to Kenya. So, Phaedra decides the thing to do is meet Kenya on mutual territory to discuss how an anger management conversation got so, well, angry.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is messier than Bob Whitfield’s attempts at dancing and smoothie making, and we’re sure to see more of the drama on tonight’s new episode. Friendships are tested and tea is being spilled left and right. However, were any of these friendships actually genuine in the first place? If you’d asked me a few years ago, I would have predicted that Kandi Burrus and Phaedra Parks’ pairing would stand the test of time. They truly seemed to enjoy each other and have fun together.
Of course, we all know how that relationship has progressed! Thanks to all the not so subtle shade and Phaedra’s new alliance with Porsha Williams, the rift between Kandi and Phaedra seems to be widening…and Kandi wants fans to know she’s done staying quiet about it.
I was wondering which Housewife was going to bring the term “alternative facts” into play first, but I just didn’t think it would happen this soon. Kenya Moore went in on her mortal enemy Sheree Whitfield for the comments that she made about Kenya “antagonizing” Matt Jordan‘s violent behavior.
Normally I love it when Sheree and Kenya beef. They usually both cross the line pretty equally so it all comes out in the wash and ends up being pretty hilarious, but I feel like Sheree was definitely in the wrong with this one. Since when does someone getting violent the victim’s fault? That’s like me blaming for Sheree’s behavior for Bob Whitfield skipping out on years of child support. It. Makes. No. Sense.
I don’t get why Sheree Whitfield was excluded from Real Housewives of Atlanta for three seasons. She always knew how to stir up drama and throw the best shade, so it made no sense to me. Sheree has had some of the shadiest one-liners over the years so I’m happy to have her back full time.
Back in the day, most of Sheree’s barbs were directed at her frienemy NeNe Leakes, but nowadays, Sheree reserves her best insults for nemesis Kenya Moore. Whether you are talking about OG Sheree or this Season 9 version, I have always lived for the shade by Sheree – even when I don’t agree with her actual sentiments, I can’t help admitting that she’s usually hilarious.
