Phaedra Parks hasn’t been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for years now but who could forget her? She dominated the hilarity on the show for years. And her reads were way funnier than NeNe Leakes could ever hope to be. Yes, I said it! I regularly use Phaedra-isms in my everyday life. The phrase “oatmeal pie face” is actually more useful than you would think.
But Phaedra is not without controversy. She got busted for setting up castmate Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams. Phaedra claimed Kandi and her husband tried to drug and rape Porsha. And that was the end of her time on RHOA. Which was the right call. Despite being dropped from Bravo, Phaedra has stayed in the spotlight and has decided to return to make a return to TV on Marriage Bootcamp: Hip Hop Edition. No, she’s not married. But she is booed up with Medina Islam, who is partaking in the show with her.
We all know that Eva Marcille
got fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta “left” Real Housewives of Atlanta “on her own to focus on other opportunities.” Meanwhile, NeNe Leakes, her rep, and the Bravo network said she’s not fired, but she’s always welcome to be on the show. So, why hasn’t she signed a contract? Most likely, she just wants more money or more screen time. Remember the beginning of the season when NeNe was nowhere to be found?
Porsha Williams happily accepted her offer letter for the next season. It’s unclear where Tanya Sam, Marlo Hampton, and Cynthia Bailey stand, but it doesn’t really add up that Cynthia is basically only in the ATL film when she spends all of her time in Los Angeles with her family. Plus, she has the most boring storylines. Why does she have a peach when most of us use her scenes as the perfect time to take a bathroom break? I’m not looking forward to watching a season centered around Cynthia’s wedding events.
Marlo Hampton is the queen of stirring the pot on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But it turns out the perennial Friend of the Housewives can also unite a host of Bravo stars for a good cause.
The outspoken fashionista recently organized a PSA for Black Lives Matter starring the casts of RHOA, Real Housewives of Potomac, and Married to Medicine, and the results are nothing short of powerful.
It’s been a week of major change in the Bravo universe. What with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members being summarily fired from Vanderpump Rules for past racist behavior. (The other two are newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni for those at home keeping track.)
Many fans have wondered whether Andy Cohen was behind the decision to oust the Pump Rules OGs after eight seasons. Now, the face of Bravo is finally breaking his silence about the firings, and clarifying his role with the show.
Normally, reality TV is lighthearted and provides a sense of escape. However, today’s reality stars are taking on important causes, Black Lives Matter. Bethenny Frankel raised funds for 100 black-owned businesses in less than 24 hours. Porsha Williams joined in on the protest and even offered bail money and lawyers to people who got arrested. She also detailed her experience getting tear-gassed at the peaceful protest. Other reality stars used their voices, demanding justice for George Floyd and all of the other African Americans who have been profiled and treated unfairly.
Bravo recently announced that there will be a special two-part episode of Watch What Happens Live on Monday, June 8 at 11 PM. The special will focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Normally, we love to keep things light and make sure our readers are entertained. We know that many people love to escape by reading our website and that’s something we understand. We also know that other times, our readers look to our site for that intersection of reality TV and other important news. Recently, our site has covered different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the global health crisis, there are issues in this country that cannot be ignored. Recently, reality TV stars have been using their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed on May 25 when a policer officer named Derek Chauvin shoved his knee into his neck. George told him, “Please, the knee in my neck, I can’t breathe.” According to CNN, witness Donald Williams told the policeman, “Officer, he’s not resisting arrest, you have your knee on him and you have handcuffs on him, he’s detained at this moment.'”
Over the weekend, some of your favorite reality TV stars attended protests. Others encouraged people to take action and speak up.
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?
When NeNe Leakes stormed out in the middle of the Real Housewives of Atlanta virtual reunion, she left her computer monitor on with a notebook shoved against the screen. On that notebook, were some notes NeNe had on hand for the taping.
It looked to a lot of people that NeNe wrote down pre-planned her reads against her co-stars. So much for being off the cuff, right? Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss seems to be the only one who actually complied with the rules. While the other Housewives admitted to having glam squads at their homes in the middle of the pandemic, Kandi did her own hair and makeup. She also came up with her own insults, off the top of her head too. Unlike some people…
