I never thought I would see Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore getting along and having lunch together on Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s a miracle. Nevertheless, I can’t help being a little surprised that Phaedra reached out to Kenya to help with her summer camp to benefit kids who are suffering because of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
It was nice to see these two putting their differences behind them to help out with a good cause, but it was tacky as hell when Kenya and Sheree Whitfield argued over their mansions (for what felt like the millionth time this season!) during a meeting that was supposed to focus on raising funds for the camp. Really though?! They couldn’t be cordial for one charitable meeting?! Shaking. My. Damn. Head. Yes, it made the episode entertaining, but the timing was absurd! As far as I saw, Phaedra didn’t get a word in during the back and forth battle, but I’m sure she has some thoughts about them stealing her shine when she was just trying to be philanthropic.

I figured pretty much any person would want to help victims of the Flint water crisis, so I’m not surprised Kenya was interested in Phaedra‘s event. Plus, she’s on reality TV, how could she refuse to help out with something like that in front of the cameras? Still, I couldn’t imagine Phaedra asking Kenya to help out years ago, so the tides have definitely changed.
Phaedra explained her decision to ask Kenya to participate in the event: “Given our history, there was some initial trepidation. However, since Michigan is Kenya’s home state, I knew she would want to help Flint children. I was focused more on making a beneficial impact on the community and less on the history of our relationship.”
Thankfully, Kenya was all for helping out the children, and she didn’t end up arguing about something stupid with Phaedra. However, that did end up happening with Kenya and Sheree when the whole group met up to discuss fundraising ideas.
About her costars’ disagreement, Phaedra said, “In the words of the late Rodney King, ‘Can’t we all just get along?’ I know disagreements are inevitable, but the nonstop bickering can be exhausting. I am just glad they agreed to coexist for the benefit of the Flint children.” Hopefully these two will actually get along at the actual event. It would be a damn shame if they didn’t.
