Real Housewives of Atlanta Finale Recap: Final Curtain Call

 

Kenya

Why were there no first looks this week? Getting the first 8 minutes ahead of time really helps in the set up process! We begin the RHOA finale with Kandi rehearsing in her living room and she really sounds great. Todd and Kandi are worried about ticket sales. Kandi says that after the play, it’s time to get started planning the wedding. Kandi brings up the pre-nup again.

I like Kenya just fine but I just don’t get making a big ass production on TV over the death of her dog. I can see the crying scenes telling her cast mates about the passing, but not some road site funeral mess. And what the motherfuck is she wearing?  Did her aunt just call the urn a urine. Where the hell are they? I just can’t with this. I didn’t watch Sonja burying her dog on camera this season, but personally, I can do without this. Just like the three episodes of slow death of Abby Lee Miller’s mom on Dance Moms.  I don’t watch these shows for televised despair.

Ayden and Apollo made a cake to congratulate Phaedra on graduating from mortuary school. She wants to buy a crematorium. Sidenote: Ayden was sporting a large Band-Aid on his forehead. Continue reading

Addressing Some Crazy Stories About RHOA

Phaedra and Kandi LOL

There is some crazy stuff floating around the blogs and tabloids this week. I appreciate that most of you emailed me or tweeted me to get my thoughts. The number of people asking questions has reached critical mass so I will address three of them here. But first, let’s review commenting rule #3.

3.  I think I heard or read something once about…

Much like links, I don’t want to hear about what you heard or read somewhere else. Please comment on it there. I try to do my best to post facts along with my opinion. If you post some random shit you read “somewhere” people here start thinking I am rubber stamping someone else’s content. I don’t have time to verify other people’s assertions. If you read something earth shattering somewhere else, EMAIL ME and I will take a look at it. Otherwise comment wherever “somewhere else” is.

Rumor Number One: The RHOA have banned together to save Porsha’s job. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Films Tomorrow!

Real housewives of Atlanta

This should be an exclusive unless my source got chatty. It’s finally time for the RHOA to film the reunion episode and there is so much potential for disaster! First of all both Kenya and Nene will have to leave their current engagements to fly in to the ATL.  This won’t be much of an issue for Nene because she and Tony have already secured rehearsal space here for when Nene has to be in Atlanta. So she is likely already back here. But Kenya is working on Celebrity Apprentice all day today and then flying out tonight and likely flying back right after the reunion.  For that reason Andy won’t be able to keep everyone there until the wee hours of the morning like he tends to do. They are going to have to do this down and dirty this time!

So what can we expect? LOTS of drama that is what.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Mexi-Loco

RHOA Mexico

Tonight, on the RHOA,  we return to Mexico where it is 1:35 a.m. and Kenya and Apollo are in a one-on-one conversation at the bar that seems to have been rented out just for this scene. Enter Phaedra. I love how Kenya is all nonchalant with her “Hey Girl!” reaction. Wow, they showed that in the preview but not on the actual episode. Anyway, Kenya and Apollo try to explain themselves to Phaedra who looks like she is about to hit both of them upside the head with her yellow, bedazzled, pocketbook.

Nene and Porsha are finally given their cue to arrive. It was a bad call by production. They should have held those two up at least another ten minutes. Also, the editing last week was that Kenya was crashing a boys night out. Not true. Kenya said on her blog that everyone was invited and the usual suspects arrived late AGAIN.  Gregg walks in with Nene. Was he there at the cigar party last week? Anyway, as Apollo says, he was saved by the bell.

Phaedra walks out of the bar and Nene and Porsha follow her like ducklings. Does that make sense to anyone? No, no it doesn’t. Even odder is that Gregg is not in Nene’s wake when they leave. Ah, they are not actually leaving, they are angling for camera time. Phaedra has a drama so they need to get up in it or else they did their hair for nothing. Kandi smartly hangs with Todd. Kenya and Apollo agree to squash things and be friends. They shake on it. Gregg and Nene and Porsha try to give Apollo marital advice. Read that sentence again, because that happened. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey’s Modeling Agency Accused of Fraud!

cynthia

According to Atlanta’s local CBS affiliate, a local woman named Dorothy Lewis submitted an entry fee in an attempt to have her daughter, Paris, featured on Cynthia’s modeling website, but no winners were ever drawn. Also, a portion of the proceeds (there actually were no proceeds) was supposed to go to charity. But, this being Atlanta, it’s yet another shady charity.  Here is the tea…

“The only thing I had to do was submit her photo and then I had to submit an entry fee on the website,” Lewis explained.

Lewis paid $20 to enter Paris into the “big kid” category for the month of January.  

The Bailey Agency promise? Each month a winner will be chosen in each category with the winners featured on TheBaileyAgencySchoolofFashion.com.

“To me it’s like playing the lottery. Your chances are slim but what if? That would be exciting if you win,” Lewis said.

The problem? The Bailey Agency hasn’t updated the winners since October 2013, but the site has continued to collect money. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Flirting With Disaster

Nene in Mexico

So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!

Kenya and Miss Lawrence are enjoying a meal on Kenya’s beautiful private patio. The scripted conversation is about  Porsha and Kordell. Remember last week when I said it seemed odd that we spent so much time ganging up on Porsha? Well now I really want to know the story. Did Kordell call up Bravo threatening a lawsuit over this whole Kordell is gay storyline? No, that can’t be it because pretty much all of the conversation continues to be about Kordell’s sexuality. I just don’t understand the point of discussing some dude who isn’t even on the show anymore. Why do we have to spend so much time humiliating Porsha, Kenya? Why must you continue to try to have a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent?

Speaking of the mentally challenged, Kenya moves on to discuss Apollo. Kenya says that Apollo is lying about Kenya coming on to him. She says if he could have, he would have. I agree with that. That doesn’t mean I am 100% sure they didn’t.  I mean Kenya needs love too… Miss Lawrence is ever so dutifully agreeing with everything that Kenya says. Kenya plans to pull Apollo aside at some point on the trip and get him to stop lying about her. That should go well.

They gang is headed over to the underground caves. Kenya wants to take them out into nature. Now Kenya, you know these women don’t have no shoes for the real world! In the car ride over Kenya and Cynthia and Apollo start talking about the Mama Joyce issue. What the hell is wrong with these people? These are not normal vacation conversations. Production needs to trust and believe that the cast can write their own scripts. It would be much more interesting that Peter sticking his nose into everyone else’s relationships all the time. They started an argument between Kandi and Todd. Mission accomplished.

In the other car, they are mostly talking about the outdoor showers. That is a normal conversation. And the script provided to both cars was to talk about the seating arrangement from dinner the night before where the couples were spilt up. Why are they acting like this is so weird. It’s actually proper protocol for a dinner with a bunch of married couples. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas Talk Love and Life After RHOA

I thought you guys might like this interview that Kevin E. Taylor from Now What? did with Cynthia and Peter on their book tour last month. Cynthia talks about stacking her  coins from her RHOA financial ventures so that she will be set up for life when the show ends. The interactions between Cynthia and Peter are interesting. Their body language seems intimate but their conversations constantly interrupt each other. I think Cynthia is probably ready to move on from RHOA.

I know there are all kinds of stories floating around out there now about the cast of RHOA but I am not ready to address them yet in detail. I will say that Porsha is not dating the son of an evil African dictator the rest of the rumors will have to wait until my sources can confirm or deny some things.

Have a great weekend!

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: He Said, She Said

Kenya Moore RHOA

So, I feel somewhat obligated to recap last night’s RHOA; however,  I don’t have much to say about it. Maybe I am just burning out, but I thought it was a pretty boring episode.  So if it okay, I’m just going to toss our some random thoughts.

Phaedra and Apollo seem to hate each other more than usual. Phaedra hasn’t seemed like she is getting any in several seasons. I would assume sex is probably the only useful quality that Apollo has. If they don’t even have that going on, I just don’t see why they are together at all.  Also, who gives small children a bottle of cleaning solution and a rag as a toy?

Is there no end to the amount of talking heads Phaedra does about Kenya being a whore? She is still carrying on about Kenya and Apollo  horse playing around the pool from LAST SEASON! She needed to have a deadly serious conversation with Apollo about that at the time and end the discussion. This is just making her look like she is insecure in her marriage and that Kenya is a huge threat. Kenya must be feeling very satisfied with the amount of thought and energy that Phaedra spends on her.

Why did we need to hear from Kordell on his thoughts on the divorce? Why was Peter acting like the male Wendy Williams interviewing Kordell about his marriage? Who does that? It was like two little old hens gossiping at a PTA meeting! Continue reading

Real Housewive of Atlanta (Not A Recap): A Spoon Coon

oh hell to the noe. So y’all know I get in a bad headspace sometimes. There is something going on the universe, as ‘rica would say. The ghetto is very restless.  I am what I call, “in the hole.”  Which means lots of very self destructive behavior and self medication. Apparently there is a knife wielding man in my neighborhood whose girlfriend attempted to flee to my house. I don’t open my door to NO BOD EE. EVER if I don’t know you. I accidently ran into one of my lawn guys at the beer store who convinced me to let him clean up my yard. He told me her whole story after she TRIED TO OPEN MY DOOR.

I just want to pull the covers over my head. But I want you to  have  a place to talk about tonight’s RHOA despite my lack of ability to recap it.

Plus I already know what is going to be y’alls big ass deal of the week.  Y’all are WAY more into WORDS than I am. I was raised with the “sticks and stones” philosophy.  I’ve been called every name in the book.  My teachers thought it was fascinating that I was raised in Libya, so they always included it in my introductions on the first day. This inevitably resulted in me being deemed the “sand nigger.” Sadly, by that point in my young life that was the least of my fucking problems. I could give a shit about words..  I bring this up to say that someone said something about Nene Leakes presenting herself as a  “coon show” and the PC  police most all of whom I suspect to be white, having some sort of hissy fit.  Do not tell me what to moderate. I am generally aware of what is posted on my blog.  I have said NUMEROUS times myself that Nene Leakes is pure coonery and buffoonery for Bravo and NBCUniversal.  It is what it is. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Addresses Rumors of Peter’s Involvement with Apollo Nida

Cythia Bailey Stands by her man Peter Thomas

Cynthia Bailey spoke with Jet Magazine recently and shared her thoughts on Pajama Brawl and also answered questions about rumors of Peter’s involvement with Apollo Nida’s  illegal activities.  What do you think about her responses?

JET: Who do you blame for the fight (between Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, and Kenya Moore’s assistant Brandon DeShazer)?

CB: I say when Kenya actually got up. I don’t want to put the blame on her, but her emotion just caused a domino effect. You know we are all grown and personally, I always try to be rational and conduct myself with class, but sometimes my crew is a little messy sometimes  — and I can’t not throw a rock in there sometimes.

Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) Recap: Dropping the Ball

Kenya Moore Charity Ball Season Six Episode 15

We begin tonight’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta at the J Spot! Girl, Miss Lawrence sure did get lucky with Bravo. He has been promoting his salon and hair services for many seasons and they frequently film at his store. Then he lands Fashion Queens?!  He’s probably making more coin than some of the actual housewives! Tonight Marlo is in the salon getting her weave ironed. I cannot believe Bravo let our favorite felon back on the show. But lately, there are almost more people with federal charges pending than housewives with a clear record! I wonder if this is before or after the event where Nene tried to get Marlo arrested for assault? I sure hope they air that scene before the season ends! Nene was throwing a flinger!

Anyway, tonight Kenya is hosting a charity ball and Marlo is invited. The two ladies meet up at the J-Spot to have some girl talk. Kenya tells Miss Lawrence and Marlo the scoop on pajama brawl. They discuss their previous battles with Nene, and Kenya explains she is going to hold a fancy charity ball to raise money for Nene’s Favorite charity in order to get back in her good graces.  Does Kenya not know that Nene’s favorite charity is Nene’s Louboutin Fund?  I think she overestimates Nene’s ability to be charitable. I’m just saying.

Kandi is holding auditions for her play which by all accounts did very well on it’s Atlanta run despite the hilarious things we have seen in the casting call scenes. I assure you, most of those people do not represent the talent that Atlanta has to offer.  It’s time for Porsha’s audition for the role of Kandi’s character’s younger sister, Jada. Porsha could not be bothered to memorize her lines, nor could she be arsed to cold read them as written. Her voice was up about three octaves and she spoke in a valley girl voice. She sang “His Eye is On the Sparrow” in a way over the top way. However, I think with a little coaching from Kandi, she would be alright in this small role. Continue reading
