We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
After a whole season of spreading rumors about Kandi Burruss and never getting caught, I feel like Phaedra Parks is going to have a hellish time at the reunion. Sure Kandi and her had a nice moment during the Real Housewives of Atlantafinale episode, but that was before Kandi got to watch all of the episodes back and see exactly what Phaedra has been saying about her this entire time.
Other than the continued tension between Phaedra and Kandi, the other big story from the finale was Kim Zolciak’s return and her random argument with Kenya Moore.
After all of the rumors, lying, and even the drugging accusations that went down between Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss during this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, it is not at all surprising that these two go at each other during the reunion. These two are pulling no punches and Kandi made it clear she doesn’t believe Porsha actually goes to anger management.
On a lighter note, after Andy Cohen has spent many interviews interrogating Kenya Moore about whether or not she had a boob job, Kandi admitted to getting one herself during the reunion.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled parade of selfies and self-promotion for some Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles baby news.
Josh Altman shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “The greatest day of my life. April 3rd at 4:55pm Heather and I welcomed our amazing baby girl Alexis Kerry Altman into the world. Weighing 7lbs and 20 inches long, this angel is absolutely perfect. To experience the birth of your child is such a mind blowing event that is greater than anything I can describe. I’m so happy and so proud of my wife for handling this like a champ. Life has definitely changed in an instant, and gazing into my baby girl’s eyes, I can tell you it got much better.”
The demise of Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks’s friendship is way more drastic than any of the romantic breakups I’ve seen in the Real Housewives franchise. These two went from being genuine besties to all out enemies with no boundaries when it comes to revealing private information or exacting revenge. So at this point, I’m not shocked that Phaedra met with Kandi’s former employee about a lawsuit against her.
Sure, Phaedra did turn over the case to another attorney, but she did film with the dude multiple times. It just seemed like filming those scenes was the reality TV version of posting a subtweet – the whole thing seemed so calculated and beyond passive aggressive. So obviously Kandi had a lot to say after watching the episode back.
I (along with many other viewers) was confused by Cynthia Bailey bringing Peter Thomas on a couples vacation even though they were in the process of divorcing. The viewers got to experience a lot of vicarious awkwardness from the last couple Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes.
This could not be more true when Cynthia attempted to roast Peter for his birthday and Kenya Moore threw a “Divorce Party” for her and Phaedra Parks. Yes, I think the idea is a little weird, but it did seem like Kenya was acting from a place of kindness so it was so awkward when Phaedra pretended to look for ginger ale as an excuse to leave. Not only that, but she retreated into her old ways by name calling Kenya via text.
Kandi Burruss has been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a long time, but this is the first season that the biggest story line of the season revolves around her. And it’s a lot to handle – at least for me.
