I don’t have much tea at all for you. Yesterday, I was sent lots of pictures that are floating around all over the place today. Clearly, they were leaked for a reason. But never in all my years of covering the reunions has it been so quiet on the tea front. Kandi was super late for her call time and that always pisses Andy off. I heard he was not in a particularly good move to start with. There were rumors that it was scheduled as a two part reunion in advance. Sounds like they didn’t have much they were going to talk about.
Andy is never going to call the women out for the gay shaming. If he does, it will only be Kenya, because that is the way he rolls. Nene, Porsha, and Phaedra have been gay bashers since the beginning of time.
They will talk about the fight between Cynthia and Porsha, which earned Porsha her seat next to Andy. They probably did not talk about Porsha attacking some woman at the Christmas party.
We will get the conversation with Kim Fields about being in over her head. She may even announce she is not planning to return even in advance of the pickup letters that will not go out for a couple of weeks. At least.
Because it is starting to look like Nene was a no show. Not a single mention by her of going to the reunion. To be fair, she doesn’t have a peach so normally would not be invited automatically. But we’ve had people making guest appearances appear on the show before. And people will expect to see Nene there. It looks like Nene could have tried to make another power play. Perhaps part of her ginormous meltdown over Fashion Police happened because she couldn’t get the paycheck she wanted to show up to the reunion. It would seem a really bad time to me for Nene to be arguing over money considering she has put her own struggles to be embraced in her other endeavors on Front Street lately. Nene had better get herself together before we see her as the next housewife with her house being repossessed by HUD .
If my speculations are true about Nene trying to start a money holdout AGAIN already, that will have to be resolved quickly. Nene’s return or lack thereof affects the contract potential for every other girl on that stage. Especially Cynthia. Which is why the flip flopper has already started flopping back to Kenya. I can’t remember any scenes where Nene and Porsha were doing their little routine this season. Nene’s return would be bad for Porsha at this particular moment. Frankly, not knowing either way about Nene makes everything up in the air. Would that affect who Andy gives the most shade to in the reunion?
The bottom line is I am hearing not one interesting thing that happens at this reunion. All hopes are being pinned on Kenya. It would not surprise me to see an engagement on this show. Kenya was on a short video I saw saying something about her jewelry being safe during the pre game glam squad photos. Was she worried about an engagement ring? Today she is on Instagram toying with her fans saying she has a secret. Everyone thinks she is pregnant. Unless she has been on a serious fertility treatment that is not likely. If Kenya is going to have a baby it will most likely not be carried by her. She is over 45. Matt was there at the reunion. It seems to make sense. Kenya could get her Bravo wedding. Matt seems to be practically living at the house. I’ve got no source telling me that. It’s just speculation.
It’s a no brainer that Kenya is going to do something to keep her name in the air in the off season. Speaking of that, the word is that Kim Fields will be on DWTS for this upcoming season. That should help her financial situation.
And finally, it never ceases to amaze me how Phaedra will bring those boys to throw at Andy at any opportunity. Usually she can’t get them in to the reunion and will Facetime them with Andy during a break. She must be super worried about her contract because she had the platoon of nannies plop one of them right on his lap this year.
Browse through the photos and tell me what you think.
