RHOA Reunion Sneak Peek and Random THOTs

 

RHOA REunion Kenya to Porsha.

 

Bravo can be a real pain in the ass when it comes to giving them free advertising for their programming. I have been working on a decent link to this video for days. I still  don’t think the video will play on Internet Explorer.  Sorry if it doesn’t work for everyone, but honestly, all you really need to see is captured in the photo above.  This may be my favorite thing anyone has said on a reunion show ever.  On the other hand, I wish someone else was saying it. I’m afraid we are getting season one Kenya back.  We already have a sea of ratchet behavior and I like Kenya best when she is above the fray.

There was a lot of chatter that the reunion was scheduled to be on two parts this year, which I took as a bad sign, but there are in fact three parts as usual. According to the PR, “The three-part reunion kicks off on Sunday, March 20 at 8pm ET/PT. Tensions rise between Kenya and Phaedra when Kenya accuses her of being the ultimate shade thrower. Kandi and Phaedra address their deteriorating relationship but with new grievances in the mix, will these two ever be able to put the past behind them and move forward? Shereè joins the ladies to discuss her experience returning to the show and Kenya and Kim go head-to-head when they confront their rocky relationship.”

As we already knew, Kenya gets into it with Kim , Porsha and Phaedra and will likely be the primary shit stirrer for this reunion.

 

 

“In Reunion Part Two, airing on Sunday, March 27 at 8pm ET/PT, the ladies rehash the drama of Jamaica from the ups and downs surrounding the execution of Cynthia’s commercial to her downplaying her relationship with Kenya to the group. In a special appearance, NeNe Leakes gathers with the women to weigh in on the drama and to address the group’s concerns surrounding Porsha’s anger management issues. Shereè and NeNe reflect on their shaky past and where their friendship stands today. The men join the conversation to give their opinions on the plethora of hot-button issues including unsettling allegations surrounding Kim’s husband, Chris.”

If you recall, in my exclusive tea about the reunion, I told you that Bravo sent Porsha to anger management classes because of her attack on her friend and stylist, Jami Zeigler who was at the finale filming of the Christmas party.  Also on the second part things get ugly between Kim and Chris and Kenya and Matt.  It seems Matt has no problem defending his woman, and Chris has no problem defending his wife. There was a bit to do made about Nene not being in any of the early photos from the set.  As it turns out she had a later time call. I really hope that you can see the video just to see her jumpsuit. I can’t wait for reactions.

“During Reunion Part Three, airing on Sunday, April 3 at 8pm ET/PT, Phaedra reflects on the emotional season she’s undergone with her husband Apollo away at prison and the effects it’s had on her life. Cynthia and Peter disclose the current state of their marriage and address upsetting rumors about their relationship, which leads to a tense verbal encounter between Cynthia and Porsha. The women revisit the drama surrounding the Miami trip and make an attempt to move forward after a tumultuous season.”

For me it seems clear that  Cynthia, Kandi, Keyna, and Nene (and even Sheree) can all film together with a low probability of anyone getting killed.  The two ratchet peas in a bursting at the seams pod, seem to be friendless.  They can barely pretend to like each other. I think they should both go. Porsha is going to either get herself killed, or seriously injure someone eventually. I think sending her to anger management only acknowledges that the girl ain’t right and needs to be removed from this volatile group completely.  I think only Andy and the most casual of viewers believe Phaedra’s scenes with the boys.  She has no idea where the baking sheets are kept, every  prop in every touching mother scene is brand new,  she has no idea where the school is or how to use a car seat.  It would be comical if it were not so sad.

From the looks of things though, this reunion looks pretty good. I fear we have seen the best parts in the teaser.  Perhaps Nene was not the best person to lecture Porsha on her violence.  For one thing, she totally instigated the attack on Kenya at the reunion. And as Porsha points out, “Didn’t you choke somebody?”

    I love Sheree’s hair, I think she looks good. Seems like nobody likes Kim much, hope she is DONE.

  2. 25

    Oooooh I don’t know, Kenya’s line was good, but I’ll always prefer a clean read over a vulgar one, and Todd’s read on Phaedra about Apollo was crystal.

    • tamaratattles

      Yeah, I was sort of hoping that Phaedra would be rattled and say, “I knew exactly what he was doing!” :)

      • Minky

        Wouldn’t that be interesting. She’s really got some nerve saying anything about anybody. For someone who knows everything about everyone, isn’t it odd that she wouldn’t keeps tabs on her own man. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Shoot, forget the stones. Not so much as a little pebble.

  3. Spilledperfume

    Thanks for the update. I can’t wait to see the reunion.

  4. ShyGuy

    Oh porsha when are you going to admit you are one of the women Peter sleeps with outside of his marriage lol. You are too concerned with Cynthia’s marriage boo and as Nene said stop putting your hands on people. I’m glad kandi confirmed what we already knew that you beat jami @$$ in the back parking lot of the Christmas party smh.

    • Minky

      That’s an interesting theory. And I wouldn’t be at all surprised. It would definitely show the Cynthia v. Porsha smack-down on the boat in a new light.

  5. Sunshine

    First season Kenya has always been there. She’s just getting worse at hiding it. Every single season has been her fighting mostly with one specific person. Not one but every season and now we can barely get an episode without a Kenya altercation.

    I guess I have not seen any evidence that Phaedra is an outright bad mother to her boys. I have seen some of the sweetest interactions between them. Dylan hugging and kissing his mother and brother with the biggest smile or Ayden wanting to be her baby forever is not acting. You can see from the few moments that we catch of their conversations that Ayden spends a lot of time talking to his mother.

    Oh well, I just hope it ‘s not a sceamfest reunion where you can’t hear what anyone is saying.

    • Don't Drink the Kool-Aid

      @Sunshine.. The sun has blinded you if you cannot see right thru Phaedra’s motherhood.

      • tamaratattles

        My whole mission in life if to GET you people to drink the Kool-Aid. I have an agitator in my midst!!!! :)

  6. Minky

    The video is working great. This looks like it’s gonna be a good reunion. Will I have the stomach to watch it? I just don’t know.

    I like that Kenya snaps back at Porsha. She did get physically assaulted by her, after all. Porsha’s had at least a few harsh comments from Kenya coming to her for some time.

    Oh, and I think I’m gonna like Kandi and Todd for this reunion.

    Nene playing peacemaker? Um, no. Porsha needs guidance. But not from Nene.

    And Matt’s totally dreamy. That is all.

  7. Cat

    Puppy poop. Video wouldn’t work for me.

    “In a special appearance, NeNe Leakes gathers with the women to weigh in on the drama and to address the group’s concerns surrounding Porsha’s anger management issues.”

    Is Nene going to be the “voice of reason”?

    • Minky

      The video makes it seem that way. She lectured Porsha in a concerned, mother hen tone about how it’s not okay for her to lay hands on anyone. Then Porsha shoots back: “Didn’t you chock somebody?” Oh boy!

  8. Miguel

    Let the games begin…can’t wait for the recap, TT!!!

    Nene’s jumpsuit was horrifying . She seems to think that she can dress like J Lo or Beyoncé but she forgets that she is four times their size.

    • Matzah60

      I dislike Nene, but she is a very tall woman. I am not talking about her size in terms of weight. I don’t think Nene was trying to dress like JLo or Beyonce. She is her own person and chose to wear that jumpsuit because she felt she looked good and had the confidence to wear it on national TV. I am not a jumpsuit fan at all, but I give Nene credit for having the courage to wear something that unexpected from a woman of her stature. I’m 5’8″ and while that’s not considered tall anymore, when I was growing up, I felt like the jolly green giant. I was much taller than my classmates in grade school including the boys.

  10. Toni Lee Gildea

    That jumpsuit. ugh.

  11. Home

    Thanks for the sneak peep TT! As usual I can’t wait for the reunion…I see Kenya has a bodyguard (Matt) so she’ll be safe this reunion…LOL. Although I don’t think its a good idea but I believe Kim Fields will be back next season. I think she knows what she’ll dealing with and will come back with a vengeance next season. I don’t think Kandi and Phaedra’s friendship will ever be back where it used to be…too much has be said and done. Phaedra likes to throw rocks and then hide her hands! I gasped when NeNe came out in her outfit….Not her at all! But when you’re your own stylist what can you expect…smh

  12. BlueEyed

    While I don’t love Nene or a majority of her looks I do love that she has the confidence to go for it.

  13. tamaratattles

    I feel as though I should confess. I actually LIKE Nene’s jumpsuit. And her hair. I thought she looked better than she ever has.

    Kim will certainly be back if she is asked, because she needs the check just like the rest of them. However, NONE of the HWs like her except Phaedra, and Phaedra doesn’t like her as much as she is just desperate for someone to film with because none of them like Phaedra either. When KANDI doesn’t like you, you’ve got problems, because Kandi will usually film with whomever she is asked to.

    • Travis E Mitchell

      Tamara..I know Kim is not a good fit for the show yet I still root for her because I grew up with her like many of us in our 40s. I just do not understand how she got in this position. With her credentials I was naieve to think money would be this big of an issue. I credit her for doing what she has to but this show is not for her and only dragging her name down.

  14. LisaPat

    Everyone has a problem with Kenya this season, even her BFF who won’t claim her, Cynthia. Nene has always despised Kenya and she still does. The new PC act doesn’t fool me. Phaedra, Porsha, Kim all despise Kenya and its too bad, because I like her better than ever this season. I have never been more irked, annoyed and disgusted by a housewife in 10 years as I am by Kim Fields so I have to ride for Kenya even though she is the odd man out.

    • bria

      @ LisaPat, I absolutely agree with you. I like Kenya regardless of all her messiness because all the hate from the two peas put her through she’s able to bounce back. Kim Fields feels the other ladies are beneath her but she’s an equal player in a game. If she’s mighty Kim Fields, she should be in Hollywood directing major production. I watched her on WWHL and she was excited with the 84% on her side , forgetting nothing in realty tv last for a second.

  15. Matzah60

    Thanks for the tea and the clip, TT. I have to say that I couldn’t hear all the words in the clip. When they jump from person to person in the previews, I have a tough time hearing exactly what was said. Must be old age and bad hearing. Still, it sounds like this reunion is going to be bombastic. I wonder why Kim Fields and Kandi are feuding? We haven’t seem much of Kandi since the first trip, so I wonder what happened since that time.

    Best line, of course, aside from Kenya’s is from “Little Tod Tucker” as Phaedra has called him maliciously in her talking heads. Something like, “You know so much about what Tod is doing, but Apollo was living in your house and you didn’t know what the f***k he was doing, please!!!” YES!!!!
    I wonder if Andy will question Phaedra about the Stanton case that is in court…or is it in court anymore??

    I find Porsche insufferable. She isn’t stupid, or at least as stupid as many believe, but she is uneducated and uncouth. I am baffled why the viewers love her. She is a train wreck. When she dragged Kenya across the floor two reunions ago, I was shocked at how many people were in Porscha’s corner and defended her actions.

    • tamaratattles

      Yes the case is still active. Phaedra filed for a summary judgment last year on the exact same basis as she as before and was once again denied. I have no idea why this case is in a county where neither party lives or works. I do know that the judge takes MONTHS to rule on all of Phaedra’s ridiculous motions. Once again we are now waiting for a trial date.

      • Matzah60

        So once the summary judgment is denied, will the Judge proceed to trial, TT?

      • Matzah60

        Oops, sorry for that last question, Tamara. Somehow, I missed the last line you wrote that they are waiting on a trial date. I don’t understand why Phaedra hasn’t dropped the lawsuit. The case is so crazy.

  16. Cheychey

    I think Nene’s hair looked better than ever. Didn’t hate the jumpsuit either. Liked the bottom better than the top. I still like Kim and would love to see the other girls take a page out of her book with respect to how she deals with conflict. You can still throw shade, it does not have to result in fists flying and wig pulling. Kim probably would have fit in better with the Beverly Hills or OC housewives. To bad she didn’t live there.

  17. hannahkingrose

    I don’t know why I keep going back to the statement NeNe made earlier about Cynthia, Kenya and her all being friends but I do. I think she’s decided if you can’t beat ’em, you might as well join ’em to get her peach back. She and Cynthia are “working on” their friendship. After Kenya made her dick comment to Porsha NeNe called it a Read. She is saying Kim is not a fit for this group. She’s telling Posha she shouldn’t be violent. Even being nice to Sheree. It seems to me she is working every angle including her willingness to be friendly with Kenya to show how much she will be a benefit to the show again. After all didn’t NeNe and Kenya start out being sort of friendly?

  18. Demi

    Long time lucker and I am so here for it! TT come though and serve lady. Loving the write up. Thank you. BTW – can we find out where to buy Nene’s jumpsuit or who the designer is?

  19. Demi

    *lurker – LOL

  20. Gapeachinsc

    Seeing that footage of Porsha dragging Kenya by the hair made me think of Ellie Mae Clampett beating Jethro’s ass…

  21. Deb in SF

    So happy! I couldn’t see the video first time I tried, but this time,l I could and it was delicious! Can’t wait for the reunion episodes! I liked Nene’s jumpsuit. Loved Todd’s comment to Phaedra. These people are all so ratchet, the reunion should be fabulous! Thanks, TT!

  22. Miele

    So, TT- where do you rank Kenya’s line versus the RH of Melbourne Gamble (IIRC) line “Your pu$$y’s too dry to ride me this hard, Manuela”?

    Also, I nearly choked laughing at “two peas in a bursting at the seams pod”. I needed that.

  23. the shadiest grove

    Yaaassssssssssssss Kenya. As usual it’s the Kenya Moore Show however I agree TT, I do love when Kenya sits pretty on her throne and let’s the peasants have at it but I guess she decided to let Porsha know that she’s from the D and she too can drag a ho straight to the gutter when and if need be.

    • MomofAJ

      Now was holier-than-thou Phaedra talking about Kenya’s skin? She always goes below-the-belt and is still mad that her husband wanted Kenya. ??? at “drag a ho!” I also think Kenya would whup some ass if she wanted to! Love Matt for her!

  24. Iprefermyteaunsweetend

    I’m just waiting for their reactions to the “mercial”. I’m sure Kenya will have some hilarious comment! Now that I think of it, Cynthia should have gone with Kenya b/c at least she had a clue as to what Kenya was capable of. She took a gamble with Kim and as a result got a commercial that is worse than a B movie.

  25. “Google yourself and find out” is priceless too, lol.

    Love the jumpsuit!

  26. Kim

    I like Phaedra. Don’t think her interactions with the children are fake. I think if she was as distant as she is made out to be the children would not respond to her like they do. I had a friend who was barely involved in her children’s lives and it showed. They were shy around her because they really didn’t know her.
