Carmon who is Kandi’s never before mentioned BFF and personal assistant arrives at Chez Kandi to find Kandi conveniently looking at bridal “books” and thinking about wedding dress shopping. She seems to think her mother is coming around on Kandi and Todd’s marriage.
Kandi has more framed pictures and art on the wall than most museums. I like it! Todd tries to tell Kandi to stand up to her mother like an adult. No need to be disrespectful to her mother, but she can’t let her mother be disrespectful to Todd.
Nene, Gregg and Brentt go over to Mynique Smith’s house. Mynique is a new “friend of a housewife” this season. She was brought in to give Nene someone to play with because Nene’s “Hollywood” storyline fell through after The New Normal was cancelled and her role on Glee is rarely recurring anymore. He husband is a retired NFL player, Chuck Smith. Chuck was a groomsman in Nene’s second marriage. Nene claims she grew up with Chuck in Athens. Chuck admits to dating Kandi but not Phaedra. When did he date Kandi? Nene, who has sworn up and down she did NOT know Phaedra when they were in Athens, not claims that Phaedra had a bad reputation in Athens. She says Phaedra was known as a “head doctor.” Nene is the kind of friend who will bring you on national television with your wife and immediately start an interrogation on who you have or have not slept with. Isn’t that lovely? Continue reading

Kandi has posted her blog on last night’s episode. She has tended to blog only sometimes and mostly very briefly on Bravo, but I think she really wanted to stop the influx of tweets about how she needs to stand up to her mother. What do y’all think? Is it too late for Kandi to take a stand with her mother at this point? Continue reading
Sorry for the delay, TAR running behind got me behind and I decided to just wait and recap RHOA today.
Oh Phaedra and Appollo are not speaking. Phaedra is headed to Alabama to study and take her funeral director test. With the baby. Is Apollo in school somewhere? He always seems to have a backpack with him. What’s up with that?
Cynthia is working at her agency and Apollo walks in to see Peter for advice. This fake sitch with Kenya is played out. TMZ did a story just this week just to explain that nothing happened between Kenya and Apollo. Who does that? It was a non-story story. Fake or not, Peter seems surprisingly good with the marital advice Continue reading

Three or four days ago, TMZ ran a particularly nasty story on Porsha Stewart. This was their headline in HUGE FONT “‘Housewives’ Star Porsha Stewart — Accused of Robbing Fans And Pocketing Thousands!” Nothing sat right with me about this story, so I decided to sit back and wait for more information. But none has been forthcoming. The ONE AND ONLY SOURCE FOR THIS STORY IS TMZ. Let’s talk about this story for a minute. First of all, I just had to pester my tweeps for the Instagram above. It was posted by Porsha on November 21st with a tweet saying she was looking forward to seeing her fans in Orlando that night. Continue reading
What do you mean that picture is not of the Real Housewives of Atlanta? Does it really matter at this point? Aren’t all these shows interchangeable by this point? Kenya really wants to be provocative. I was just talking about this very thing today. She LOVES saying things like, ” I am not stranger to having my legs in the air upside down.” because she WANTS us to call her a whore. When, I suspect by the way she acts, she has been laid since she won her Miss USA crown in 1972. So call her a whore. She will love it.
Poor Kandi. Kandi is on this show for two reasons. She was a wildly successful musical artist who invested well and has more money than the rest of these bitches put together and because she is willing to play nice with everyone. She may have some drama later this season, but that is a rarity. She’s rich, she’s grounded and she is above this nonsense. But she likes to make an easy dollar and this show gives her that (in addition to her other enterprises, which unlike the others give her a very cushy lifestyle). So she is for that reason stuck with filming with Kenya. She, like the rest of us would like for Kenya’s Gone with the Wind Fabulous crap to be over. Kandi claims her ankle is hurt so she can’t ride the silks. Kandi is also on the wedding diet and she is cranky. Continue reading

It did not take long at all for “reality shows” to lost all sense of reality. Flipping tables, infidelity rumors, neck-rolling wig-pulling knockdown drag-out fights are what we want to see apparently. Genuinely crazy people are fascinating. The Scary Island episode was one of RHONY’s highest rated episodes. Teresa’s table flipping scene may be what kick started the long-term success of RHONJ. Each new housewife since has tried to top the previous insanity. Felons were cast, and felonies were committed while filming. More is more.
Enter Kenya. Allegedly, Kenya was neither rolling in the dough or living in Atlanta when she magically got cast as a Real Housewife of Atlanta. But she had a plan. She was banking on a stunt double boyfriend, a house that her landlord claimed she could not afford and a whole lot of insanity . And it appears to still be working for her.
I have often said that the powers that be at Bravo care very much about the number of comments on the official Bravo blogs. Lea Black would not spend nearly the amount of time she does publicizing hers if it didn’t affect her in some way. Kenya more gets the lion’s share of the comments on the RHOA official blogs. And she does it by pissing us off. She thrives on being a hypocrite. She acts like a maniac and then chastises others for similar behavior. Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Nene Leakes posted this picture from the hospital yesterday. She’s been sick for a few days and went to get some IV hydration. Her hashtag was #luckytobealive ! Nene has been working on her clothing line and making appearances on shows like The Chew this month. She is probably just worn out. Get well soon, Nene!
Nene held a very successful model search for her clothing line at Bar One earlier this week.
UPDATE ON NENE’S CONDITION AFTER THE PAGE BREAK! Continue reading
We start this episode with a bit of good news for Kandi. Lord knows she needs some with her mother trying her best to keep her down. Kandi’s new studio is almost finished and it looks fantastic! It’s very “Kandi” with the pink vinyl chairs in her office. Kandi talks to Don Juan, her manager, about her mother. Don Juan says that Mama Joyce may just be concerned about where she will fit in once Kandi and Todd get married. He says he has the same sort of concerns. Essentially, he is worried that Kandi won’t need him anymore, that Todd will take over as her manager. It sounds a little selfish, but it is true that once someone marries their priorities do often change and their relationships with other may indeed become diminished.
Kandi seems a bit offended and thinks Don Juan is only there for her checks. Well, he may not ONLY be there for the checks, but he is her employee and I think he is right to be slightly concerned. Todd and Kandi are already producing plays together and forming business deals on their own. If Todd does decide he wants to manage Kandi, then Don Juan could very well be out on the streets looking for his next paycheck. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Hosts Fashion Show Outside A New Walmart
I have a couple sips of tea on Cynthia and Peter I really have not had a place for so I am going to stick here. First of all, yesterday Cynthia did a fashion show in the parking lot of a Walmart grand opening that also appeared to be a model search opportunity as well. While she was there she interviewed with an AJC reporter. During that interview she mentioned the foreclosure issue. As I have been saying, it is the landlord of the Bar One property that is facing foreclosure. Property is foreclosed on, businesses go bankrupt. Continue reading
