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.
But, she’s apparently pursuing her own show, which is something that pretty much every reality star says or leaks to the press. So, take that with a grain of salt.
A few months ago, NeNe Leakes‘ frenemy Wendy Williams claimed that NeNe was leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe denied that, of course. But then, her behavior was, well, a bit confusing. Then again, that was just typical NeNe behavior in all honesty. She was barely in the beginning of the season. It is unclear if NeNe refused to film or if she was cut out, but the start of the most recent season was just so strange. Even when NeNe wasn’t there she was the topic of conversation.
Then, she just walked out in the middle of filming the reunion. She left her monitor on, with her notebook full of pre-prepared reads open. Most people would get fired for not doing their jobs. However, that doesn’t seem to be a concern of NeNe’s. Instead of returning to the reunion, she called Porsha Williams while she was filming, which was annoying and just made no sense. Just show up if you want to be heard. Plus she was filming from her home. It doesn’t get much easier than that when it comes to a commute to work. This week the offer letters went out for Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13. We already know that Eva Marcille
got fired left the show. Porsha is back for sure. Other than that, it’s just a guessing game of looking for social media clues. And that’s why a lot of people think NeNe got fired.
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.
Word on the street, i.e. social media, is that Andy Cohen wants Lori Loughlin to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. Just imagine what that would be like, given the college admissions scandal of it all. Considering all the “mom-shaming” happening this season, the Beverly Hills Housewives would have a field day ripping into Lori.
Obviously, Lori isn’t making any career moves in the near future. Still, it’s an interesting thought. In fact, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams thinks it’s a great idea to cast Lori.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has always been a fan favorite. She’s also one of my top 3 favorite housewives of all time. And Porsha has come a long way.
Long gone are the days where she was a young and submissive wife. Also gone are the days when she needed to be anyone’s “little sister” on the show. Porsha has truly come into her own and I know fans are cheering her on all the way.
It’s only been one day since the reality show world was rocked to its core. In case you live under a rock, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist behavior. The target of their behavior was ex-cast mate, Faith Stowers, who is black. A few years ago, both Stassi and Kristen falsely accused her of stealing and called the cops on her. Their claims were completely baseless and cruel.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen being fired, Bravo also made the (correct call) to fire two more VPR stars. In the same announcement, Bravo confirmed that newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni are donzo. Honestly, this was long overdue considering we found out mid-season that Max and Brett have a history of racist tweets.
