Watch What Happens Live - Season 11

It’s a new season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and lots of things are different – like NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks being friends (what?!) but one thing has stayed the same: NeNe’s ego is still larger than a Louboutin triple platform – or Phaedra’s beehive. 

NeNe brags about being a “rock” for former enemy turned friend Phaedra as she dealt with Apollo Nida being sentenced to 8 years in prison for running a financial fraud scheme. 

“It’s always sad to see a family end no matter who’s right or wrong. I’m glad I can say I was a rock for Phaedra during this time and never judged her,” NeNe says. I love how NeNe can’t just say a nice thing, she always has to drop a line about her own amazingness. She simply must try to snatch alllll the credit!


Of course, NeNe also has to throw a little shade, wrapped in wisdom cause in case you forgot she is THE original RHOA and therefore the queen! “This definitely should be an eye opener for her as well, because it’s always the ones you never thought would support you that do and the ones you thought would be there during rough times that always seem to magically disappear,” NeNe dishes.

Perhaps NeNe is referring to Kandi Burruss, who admitted that she and Phaedra have disagreed over how Phaedra handled Apollo’s situation, mainly stemming from Kandi’s husband Todd friendship with Apollo. 

It does seem that Kandi and Phaedra are fine, despite some snafus. Phaedra referred to Kandi as her best buddy on a recent Ellen appearance, and they’ve also been posting photos hanging out together on social media. I certainly hope these two friends can weather the storm because it would suck for reality TV to break up another friendship – although I suppose in this case it would be husbands breaking up a friendship.

Odd – it seems like everyone who once hated on Phaedra is suddenly clamoring to be her buddy… Is she just the latest would-be pawn in a NeNe vs. Kenya standoff? 

For now, I’ll believe that Kandi and Phaedra will make it through and support each other. Especially since Phaedra is the one who got Kandi and Todd together! 

And I’ll also ignore NeNe, because she just cannot stop with the cryptic messages and the holier-than-thou attitude! Girl – you’re on Broadway, how do you have time for this Housewives, ish?!
