As the resident ‘Southern belle” of theReal Housewives of Atlanta series, you will never catch Phaedra Parks looking “tore up, from the floor up!” Phaedra is never sans war paint and is always beat from head-to-toe whenever she steps foot out of her door, so why would ANYONE think this diva would attend a luncheon without a stitch of makeup?
Well even though series newbie, Kim Fields, meant well when she wanted her castmates to partake of her hospitality au natural, not everyone was game. Since Phaedra understands her Atlanta gal pals, she says that a few of her series co-stars tend to be ‘hypersensitive’ and might have taken Kim’s well intentions the wrong way.
When all-around Real Housewives of Atlanta’s peacekeeper Kim Fields threw her well-intentioned ‘beatless brunch,’ she certainly never would have guessed that her reality show castmates would make such a stink about the gathering. Well leave it to her beat-faced crew of hoity-toity divas to pretty much make a mockery of the newbie’s attempts at an au natural affair.
Love her or hate her, The Real Housewives of Atlantastar Kenya Moore doesn’t mince words or worry about being too harsh when talking about her co-stars. Kenya just lets the fur fly when it comes to sharing her opinions on the weekly episodes and we love her for it. This week she puts Kim Fields on blast and throws a little shade Phaedra Parks’ way.
Kenya starts off her blog this week explaining why she thinks Kim is too negative about her RHOA co-stars. “We’ve seen Kim speak about the “group” in a negative way before. She told Phaedra that everyone had their breasts out at my Kenya Moore Hair Care launch party and she “missed class,” thereby calling us classless or trashy. She quipped before that we all looked like we were always on a red carpet and she often makes disapproving faces and comments while she is with us.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta the ladies were supposed to remove their makeup to reveal the natural beauty underneath. Perhaps realizing they actually don’t have any of that quality stuff, everyone kept their false eyelashes firmly adhered and batted their eyes shadily.
Kim Fields is starting to getting into the groove of the group, although they still scare the bejesus out of her with their non-mom lives of Louboutins, Louis, and liquored-up shade. Kim decides to put everyone on the an equal playing field, or maybe get to know them better as people, by hosting something she dubs a “Beatless Brunch.” Everybody knows the ladies of Atlanta rarely beat around the bush!
Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, several of the ladies, led by Phaedra Parks, traveled to Washington DC to celebrate the anniversary of the Million Man March, while other ladies remained in Atlanta receiving million dollar guests.
Ayden helps Phaedra pack for the trip, which will involve meeting with several congress members, including Florida representative Frederica Wilson, whose organization inspired Phaedra’s newfound passion, Saving Our Sons.
It’s been a week, but I’m still cringing over last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta and the family reunion from hell. I don’t often feel badly for Kenya Moore, but my heart just broke for her as she ambushed her estranged mother to no avail while a partybus full of relatives looked on in shock. Hopefully tonight we’ll get some closure…and the return of NeNe Leakes!
In an interview with Bravo, Kenya shares her feelings of devastation (and promotes her new memoir Invisible) and discusses how much she’s learned about herself in the process. When asked why she chose to plan the family reunion, the twirling reality star explains, “I’ve been open about wanting to have a family of my own since I was added to the cast. I have often regretted exposing myself the way I have, especially with my love life. It left me susceptible to mockery, false rumors, and ridicule (such as I can’t get a man). With that said, I’ve learned the men I’ve dated aren’t the issue — I am the issue. Through the help of counseling, seminars, and advice from people I love and respect, I knew it was time to dig deeper into my past. As such, that meant exploring my primary relationships and how they are connected to my romantic relationships. I needed to heal from the inside out, and realized I need my family to do so.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Phaedra Parks‘ friendship with Kandi Burruss has been on rocky terrain as of late between huzzzzband drama, checks that haven’t come, and shady comments. Despite the issues Phaedra promises they will always remain friends and share a “rich history” together. Rich, eh?
