During these trying times, we take what we can get and what we are getting is more Candiace Dillard. Real Housewives of Potomac had an explosive season and part of it was due to Candiace’s award-winning performance as the “before” photo of an Oprah makeover. I would like to remind the class to keep your hands to yourself because sometimes folks who talk the talk don’t want to walk the walk.
Candiace’s trip to the wild side with Monique “Please Do” Samuels gave the show a boost. This particular #physicalaltercationbybravo garnered so much attention, LOTS of people weighed in, including other Housewives. Enter Porsha “I Wish A Bitch Would” Williams, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and friend to Monique. Porsha implied Candy sued Mo for a money grab. Candiace responded (because she was 600 miles away), but apparently didn’t get it all out. Now Candy has something else to say to Porsha – Chris Bassett, come get your wife.
There’s really no clever introduction for this story. Homophobic tweets have resurfaced from Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard. A majority of the posts she shared are from 2010 and 2011.
The already-controversial reality star has spoken out about the public’s discovery of these tweets.
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks has always been a polarizing figure on the show. She was an attorney and also became a licensed mortician and funeral director. The mother of two divorced her husband, Apollo Nida, after he landed back in prison.
But she spread a vicious lie that RHOA stars Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, wanted to allegedly drug and rape Porsha Williams. So, Phaedra and all her southern shadiness were dismissed, and she lost her peach.
There have been some shade masters in the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, past and present. NeNe Leakes is super shady, even if she has to write out and rehearse her insults ahead of time. Shade seems to be Kenya Moore’s source of oxygen.
Kandi Burruss can deliver a solid read when she’s provoked, usually by NeNe. Porsha Williams says some of the funniest things. Marlo Hampton isn’t afraid to go below the belt. There are a lot of shady ladies on this show, but who is the shadiest of them all?
It’s been years since we saw Phaedra Parks on Real Housewives of Atlanta. And if it weren’t for how dirty she did costar Kandi Burruss, I would take her back over NeNe Leakes any day. But before all that went down, Phaedra had the best shade, the best kids and the most dramatic marriage situation. She was a true renaissance woman to boot. A lawyer, mortician and creator/star of the Donkey Booty workout. Phaedra did it all.
And she gave us a truly real-life dramatic breakdown of her marriage with then-husband, Apollo Nida. Don’t get me wrong, it was more scary than dramatic when he showed up to get his things and stormed around their house, despite being on camera. But it was a moment that was the most real, even when reality tv sometimes scrapes for a storyline. I felt for Phaedra in that moment.
As a total outsider who doesn’t actually know Kenya Moore, it blows my mind that she’s trying to reconcile with Marc Daly. From what we’ve seen, he is far from the ideal husband. From the weird way he calls her “Ken,” to his insistence on having control over everything, it’s just hard to find anything to like about this man.
During last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya revealed that she wasn’t allowed to talk to Marc’s parents. Weeks ago, she shared that Marc was sending flirty texts to former flings, who had no idea he was married with a child. Red flag alert, Kenya. Red flag alert. NeNe Leakes claimed that Marc was having multiple affairs during last week’s episode too. And, on top of all this, Kenya and Marc live in two different states. This is far from the recipe for an ideal marriage. Even Phaedra Parks‘ ex-husband Apollo Nida has something to say about Marc.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama between Phaedra Parks and her now-ex Apollo Nida was downright riveting. I will never forget their heated confrontation in the garage right before Apollo went to prison. The tension was real!
I’ll also never forget how the other RHOA cast members got involved in Apollo’s messiness. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker confessed that they were keeping Apollo’s motorcycle in storage at their ATL mansion. Who could forget when Phaedra hit peak level petty and called the feds to their house? Legendary television.
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was tough to watch. Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey went out of their way to protect Kenya Moore from the group following the news of her separation from Marc Daly.
Obviously, many RHOA viewers can’t stand Marc, but Kenya has made it very difficult to have sympathy for her. Last night, NeNe Leakes showed Kenya some
phony sympathy at dinner. In response, Kenya thanked each cast member individually, except for NeNe, which was super rude. Then, Kenya made a half ass attempt at peace when she decided to bring out a plate of dessert to NeNe- the same dessert that was available in mass quantities for the entire cast. How special. And, of course, the shade continued onto Twitter.
