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.
Love her or loathe her, we can always count on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville to always be interesting. The woman is not shy when it comes to opening up about her own life or sharing her opinions on others and what they have going on.
She gained a following as a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but after that she appeared on a bunch of different reality TV shows including Celebrity Apprentice, Celebrity Big Brother, Marriage Bootcamp, and Famously Single. This means she’s met a lot of other reality TV stars. And, yes, she has some strong opinions on all of them.
Alexis Bellino seemed to largely disappear after leaving the Real Housewives of Orange County after four seasons in 2013. Sure, she posted a lot on social media, but we didn’t hear much about her until her divorce from Jim Bellino last year. Since then, Alexis has been popping up on the semi-regular. Earlier this year, she made some waves when she posted a few Instagram pics with her new man, Andy Bohn. And Alexis was soon was faced with Andy’s estranged wife making a public plea for privacy for her family due to Alexis flaunting her new relationship on social media.
Alexis is currently starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition with her mother and is also making an upcoming appearance on Below Deck. Something tells me Alexis won’t be as sweet as Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey was when she was on the show! Alexis also appeared on RHOC this season due to her friendship with Emily Simpson. Apparently, all this attention wasn’t enough, as Alexis is now in a bit of a social media kerfuffle over comments she made about her household help on Instagram.
It feels like there’s a new 90 Day Fiance spin-off announced once a week at this point. The original series is still going strong. 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days has blessed us all with Darcey Silva’s craziness. Some couples from the original show have returned to TV for 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After. They even reversed the 90 Day Fiance concept with 90 Day Fiance the Other Way. And, for some reason, Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno had their own spin-off show.
Recently, news broke about a spin-off focused on college students. There are already a lot of these shows. Now, reality TV veteran Aubrey O’Day has another idea for a show.
After only ten days of hanging out for a check therapy, the Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition couples must decide if they are ready to commit to their relationships or walk away. I recommend that they walk away, briskly. Or at least most of them should. One couple will take the next step and another will cut ties completely.
When the group gets ready to leave the strip club, drama ensues when Waka Flocka gets a little too friendly with some random women. In usual Tammy Rivera fashion, she goes all the way off when she sees her husband smiling in another woman’s face. I wonder if she did that when he actually cheated all of those times in the past. After returning home, the men and women discuss what will happen at the end of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like most people will change and their partners aren’t going to do anything. So, I guess all of this just for the viewers’ entertainment.
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp Hip Hop Edition, things get interesting when the couples have a surprise lie detector test. The couples are put on the hot seat and DECEPTION is definitely indicated for some! The Bootcampers go out as single men and women for a night of debauchery at the club. Relationships will be put to the test. Will this exercise make them stronger? Or will it expose more secrets?
Judge Lynn Toler lets the couples know its lie detector day. A group of men and women in black stand in the front of the room and look at the couples like they are inmates. Everyone is allowed to give their partner one yes or no question. Tammy Rivera asks if she is enough “woman” for her husband. Her question is revised to find out if Waka Flocka can be committed. We already know that may not be true. He has cheated on her a thousand times. Waka asks if Tammy trusts him. He better not fail this test or his wife may go crazy on national television.
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, it was another day and another explosive fight between Soulja Boy and Nia Riley. Things go all the way left, when Nia attempts to talk to him while he is in a mood. Fed up with the drama, she lies in another bed and plays on her phone. Soulja Boy is enraged that he is being ignored and a shouting match ensues. He jumps in her bed screaming and grabbing at her legs. The fight is so loud, half the house wakes up and runs to Nia’s aide. I doubt this is the first time something like this has happened. They both seem content complaining and then going back to each other. Nia, give up on him!
Jessica Dime and Tammy Rivera pull Nia aside to console her after the fight. She is so frazzled that she can’t even get her thoughts together. Later, Soulja Boy gives his side of the story to Tammy and Waka Flocka. He is upset because earlier that night she broke up with him. The next morning he apologizes and attempts to mend things. It seems like they go through the same cycle every episode. SMH…
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, Karl Dargan tried desperately to explain why he was up after midnight talking to another woman. I must say, he is totally committed to lying and denying everything to his wife. The experts question why Lil Mo would stay in this marriage. Dr. Ish brings out photographic evidence from the cameras that captured his moment of infidelity with a woman he claimed was his “sister.” Lil Mo leaves her meeting with the experts and shares the photo and the story with the whole house. Most would be embarrassed, but she doesn’t seem to be!
Lil Mo realizes Karl never came to bed and is asleep on the couch downstairs. She brings him back to their room to get some answers. Karl goes back to sleep to deflect from the conversation. The next morning, they engage in a shouting match. Things take a turn for the worst when Karl tries to slam the door on Lil Mo as she tries to confront him. He is clearly in denial and wants to ignore the problem rather than discuss it. They both step away from the camera. She begs Karl to say something to give her peace of mind. I was sad to see her so desperate to be loved. She let him publicly embarrass and disrespect her and their relationship. She gives him an out and even kisses him, despite him admitting the truth. SMH….
