Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Make-ups and Breakdowns

RHOA Nene Toodles

First of all, my thoughts are with our friends in Sydney tonight as some sort of terrorist situation is going on there. Everyone be safe.

We are right back where we left last week with Nene running her ugly mouth at Cynthia and Cynthia just sitting there watching Nene implode. I just noticed Porsha’s hair. If that is her hair line it looks like some really good hair. She’s a great spokesperson for the hairline too. The whole find someone pretty and dumb as a bag of weave must be making the company giggle. A lot. Anyway,  Nene screams at Cynthia like a banshee and walks off.

Nene comes back, dabbing her eyes and Phaedra says to Kandi, “Maybe we should let them have a moment.” Which we know really means, “Hey, let’s try to go get a drink before this bar shuts all the way down. I need a chicken wang or somethin’.” (Nightmare recount of filming this scene here.) So everyone tries to make a break for it and leave Cynthia to deal with Nene. Continue reading

RHOA Filming At Einstein’s Was a Nightmare For The Server!

RHOA Friend or Faux

Photo Credit: Bravo/KandiOnline

 

As we saw on last weeks show the ladies all met up at Einstien’s for dinner.  I’ve discussed many times that the housewives never actually eat at dinner. Production seems overly concerned about editing a meal because they cut footage together and don’t want to have issues with continuity based on the plates being full, then empty, then half full again. The Atlanta production crew is the most anal about this. We have seen RHONJ and RHOBH actually eat at dinner, but RHOA rarely if ever do. This is also the reason for the red solo cups I like to freak out about. They use them because the cover the amount of wine in the glass so that it doesn’t show more wine, then less, then more, etc.

As an added bonus, it make the RHOA cranky because they are starving in a restaurant full of food they can’t eat. You will see this season that Phaedra and Porsha filmed dinner at The Palm in Atlanta. They ordered a ton of food and took it all to go to eat in peace without having to worry about eating on camera.

This week at Einstein’s Phaedra was showing bitterly complaining about every damn thing. The lack or water. The stale crackers. The slow service. She was a pill. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Friend or Faux (Recap)

RHOA Friend or Faux

I’ve had sort of a stressful evening so I am sipping the hell out of some wine and loading all the weapons and taking the collar off the attack dog in case he “gets loose.” So don’t sweat me about this Real Housewives of Atlanta recap. I may or may not have to stop and drag a body or three over the threshold but, but we will get through this.

KENYA

Is the first HW of the evening and she is visiting Claudia who is the first person mentioned in the official description of this episode. Who is the HBIC now?

CLAUDIA

Claudia gets the intro on the same scene. MMMMhmmm Claudia has a stunning corner apartment with a view of the whole city. Claudia is so city girllllll *SCHREEEECCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHH*  Holy fuck. Red solo cups. I can’t. Please give me a minute to compose myself as these two Yankees get all Kim Zolciak (born Yankee) and act all white trash. I can’t. I really can’t. OMG! Kenya acknowledges the problem. Kindly and gently and points out that is what winos do. THANK YOU KENYA.  Frankly, I have heard that the girls do it for the same reasons they don’t eat during restaurant scenes. Production makes them do it for continuity. You know, full glass empty glass. full glass again issues. I’m sorry I just would not be able to comply. It’s a travesty. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Talks About Her Meeting With Porsha, Kandi and Phaedra Weigh In

RHOA Cynthia 102114

 

Cynthia weighs in on the drama between Porsha and her this week. Then Kandi and Phaedra add their two cents.

Cynthia says:

Drama or no drama, the one thing I respect most about the ladies is their business savvy. I enjoy surrounding myself with strong, smart, business-minded women. Like some of the other ladies, I am a self-made woman. My career history and accolades speak for themselves. This was and continues to be accomplished through hard work and remaining fearless.  With that said, I felt it was in bad taste and another poor judgment call for Porsha to make fun of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, especially since I have supported her single and hair business when called upon. The Bailey Agency empowers and inspires young talent to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams.   

I have known Porsha for a couple of years now, and we have never had any real issues until this last reunion. To my knowledge our only issue is I did not support her actions at the reunion. I have always made it clear that the reunion is a provocative environment for everyone involved. I adamantly did not support her choice to resort to physical violence, and I never will. Shortly after, she did WWHL, and claimed that I supported her actions and then I didn’t support her actions. I do not support physical violence. Period! I thought this was clear out the gate during the reunion, when I did not jump off the couch to run to her side.  Continue reading

WWHL With Kandi Burruss and Lisa Wu

WWHL Kandi and Lisa Wu

I’m not overly excited about this pairing but maybe we will get a feel for how things really are between Kandi and Phaedra. The Bartender tonight is Andy’s doorman who is featured heavily in his latest book, Surfin Percy. Andy refers to him as his “moral compass.” Kandi responds with “He’s your what compass?” Andy repeats himself and Kandi gives an “Oooohhh” the way one does when they have no idea what something means. Um, scary? Surfin Percy knows all of Andy’s dirt.

Andy asks how Kandi feels about Claudia. Kandi says she likes her a lot but she will read your ass. She reads like a queen! Andy pretends to be shocked. Andy asks if she can give him a preview, like who specifically does she end up reading. Kandi says she doesn’t want to say. I’ll say. It’s Nene Leakes. Claudia reads her for filth on the Puerto Rico trip. Probably why she didn’t want to go to the Phillipines. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: All Tea, All Shade (Recap)

RHOA PHillipines2

I can’t wait for us to get to know Claudia Jordan tonight! First, Cynthia and Porsha talk about Cynthia’s party. Porsha throws shade right of the bat toward Cynthia saying she started out as little Nene and now she is baby Kenya. Porsha is so funny in these scenes talking  about Claudia. This is before she knew that Claudia was there to snatch her peach. Phaedra finally shows up to the pow wow with Porsha and Kandi. BTW, they are at some high-end bar in Atlanta and Phaedra and Porsha are dressed to the nines and Phaedra is in yoga pants and a tank top. Phaedra asks how Cynthia’s party was because she missed it. Nope, she was tipped off and kept right on driving after arriving at Bar One. Anyway, Kandi tells the story. Kandi tells Phaedra (and that other one)about Apollo lying about everything related to Kenya.

Phaedra acts SHOCKED! Shocked I tell you! She was 8 months pregnant at the time Apollo was telling her this and it just added to the stress. Now this puts her under more stress. Wow, Phaedra admits that she owes Kenya an apology. She doesn’t think Kenya is Mother Teresa but she is woman enough to have a conversation and apologize and move forward. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kandi says, “Not just you all of us.” The editing is shady and it looks like Porsha is agreeing. In her talking head Kandi says she feels bad for Kenya. Phaedra says, “Oh that’s terrible. Poor Kenya.”

Meanwhile Kenya and her aunt are at Lush Life landscaping. It’s a really pretty setting. Her aunt suggests she consider a cactus since she has a tendency to kill flowers. Her aunt is suggesting Kenya find forgiveness for all of them, especially Porsha. They flash to a montage of Porsha and Nene and Phaedra saying vile things about Kenya at the last reunion. Kenya is struggling to forgive. She says she would be willing if they were willing to reach out to her first. Her Aunt tries to coax Kenya to be the bigger person. Kenya dramatically spouts off some Shakespeare (Iago from Othello if you are interested.)   Continue reading

Kandi Feels Bad That She Believed Apollo’s Lies

Kandi Burruss Tucker

Kandi is already showing signs of warming to Kenya Moore despite her former strong alliance to Phaedra. I think we can see Kandi coming around to at least hang out with “Team Pretty” this season and be in the thick of things this season. As we discovered here, Kandi and Phaedra are no longer close and Phaedra has unfollowed her on Twitter.

Bravotv.com: How shocked were you by Apollo saying he lied about seeing Kenya in LA?
KB: I was totally shocked. Over the last couple of years Todd and I had become pretty good friends with Apollo. I didn’t think he would just make up a story about Kenya offering him fellatio and seeing her in Cali for no reason. There had been some flirty comments and moments that had happened between them that made the whole thing somewhat believable, and when I saw that text from her to him a while back saying “Hey Babe,” I didn’t think it was appropriate.

Real Housewives of Atlanta: No Moore Apollogies (Recap)

RHOA Apollo and sons

It’s time for RHOA, or more accurately, the Phaedra and Apollo show. Phaedra manages to get free dental care for the boys by filming them going to see the dentist.  There were ten tons of promotional shots. That should keep them in dental care until their adult years. I found it very strange that the street numbers were blurred on the building. Why? They showed name of the practice a dozen times, and had every item they sell displayed behind the reception desk, but for some reason someone went to the trouble to blur the street address?  Also is Phaedra married to that giant bagel on her head? How much does that thing weigh? It makes my head hot just looking at her wearing that all over the place in Atlanta in the summer. Why does Apollo looked shocked to see Phaedra and Ayden? Clearly he knew about the appointment which is why he was there. #BadActing  Ayden was priceless with the whole, “Daddy? Oh boy….” reaction.

Did we really need the entire family in the room for his cleaning? How many times is Phaedra going to point out to us that her focus is on parenting? Pretty much everything she says, you may presume the opposite. Phaedra has TWO fulltime people to watch the boys. One, an overnight nanny lives in the house. The other, a baby sitter is there all day when the boys are awake. Phaedra’s mother is there a lot too and keeps the kids when she goes on “book tours” for months at a time. According to Angela Stanton, who becomes more believable by the day, Phaedra never liked her kids and was very standoffish around her kids. Even in Phaedra’s first bizarre deposition, she commented on Angela “always being pregnant” as if that were a bad thing. But now, suddenly, Phaedra would have us believe she is all about parenting. I’m not buying it.

Cynthia is excited for the release of her Ebony edition. She also wants us to know she um, “has her groove back” so to speak. Cynthia’s spread is beautiful but in one shot it looks like she is missing an arm. I’m just saying. Peter and Cynthia plan the Ebony party.  Nene and Porsha are not invited. Continue reading

Are Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks Still BFF’s?

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

UPDATE: It seems I was right. My tweeps are reporting that Phaedra is no longer following Kandi.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta went on two trips this season and posted a lot of Instagram pictures. Of course I went over them several times looking for “clues” and googling images of yellow bathtubs trying to locate the hotel (shut up, you know you want to know first!) and looking at body language. It was clear that my sources were correct and the group is deeply divided. Team Pretty, Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia and Demetria are a solid foursome filmed together and Nene is with Porsha and Phaedra. Both Porsha and Phaedra were easy for Nene to pick up as minions. Porsha because she is a good four standard deviations below the mean on the IQ bell curve, and Phaedra because she has been extremely abusive to Kenya. Team Pretty has known all along that Phaedra’s accusations were lies, but this season, on the next episode in fact, we will see Apollo attempt to right his wrongs before heading to the slammer. Apollo will come clean to Kenya and apologize. This sours team Pretty Team on Phaedra for good. So there is someone else Nene can scoop up to follow her now that Cynthia has burnt up the friendship contract and she’s had a falling out with most anyone else. And that leaves Kandi.

If you look at all of the pictures of the trips I can only find one where Kandi was standing next to Phaedra. On the 15 hour flight to Seoul, Kandi sat next to Cynthia. It seemed to me that these two were not nearly as close as they used to be. We saw on the premiere that the guys (Peter and Todd) were supporting Apollo in the relationship situation between Phaedra and Apollo. Todd had Apollo over and Kandi tried to state Phaedra’s case, but I get the feeling she eventually got tired of hearing Phaedra bitch at her because Todd was being nice to Apollo. It looks like based on these blogs that the two are not BFF’s anymore. What do you think? Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season Seven Premier Recap

NeNe-Leakes-Photo-Shoot-For-Cirque-Zumanity

It’s time for the season premier! We have no new photos, but we have new taglines!

Nene: Why be so nasty and so rude, when I can be so fierce and so successful?
Kandi: I’m not about the drama, don’t start none, won’t be none.
Cynthia: Life is about choices, and I choose Cynthia.
Phaedra: When it comes to my family? I’m the judge and the jury.
Kenya: People get exhausted trying to figure me out. And I just let them.

Okay that intro was a hot mess that looked like it was hobbled together by one-eyed interns. Where is Claudia’s peach? We were told Claudia would have a peach? Will that come later since she was filming as an FOH for so long? Why would they not give their highest rated show a decent intro? You can’t even recognize half of the for all the photoshopping and editing. I’m not even sure that is any hair we have ever seen on Cynthia on her head in the peach holding scene. So far this is a hot mess, a HOT MESS, I say. Did I say hot mess yet? Lord have mercy. Maybe Claudia takes Nene’s peach at the halfway mark? Wouldn’t that be a kick in Nene’s ass…?

We’re going to start right off with Nene in Las Vegas filming Circe du Soleil Porn Show, Zumanity. This was done before the real filming for the season began. And there is Gregg right in her wake as usual. Why is Nene putting a wigcap on over her wig? Continue reading

Exclusive: Tiny Drop of RHOA Tea…

RHOA Korean Flight

Exclusive: Play nice. Please excerpt and clearly link. Ebola. Blah.  Blah. Blah.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Demetria McKinney, Porsha Williams, and Claudia Jordan have left the country.  That’s way too many housewives. SEVEN.  And Nene is not on the trip.  I’ve been working sources for a day or so now and the best I can determine is that the ladies are going to BALI. That is one long ass trip. It’s even longer from Atlanta than it is from Beverly Hills and you know how jetlagged they all were.

The ladies are on a new fangled AIRBUS 380 that is often referred to as a cruise ship in the sky. It’s a double decker plan that holds around 400 passengers. There are three classes. I think the ladies are in the midlevel class which is the complete top level of the plane. That section has a bar/lounge. On the lower deck there is a high end duty-free shop with perfume and make-up and booze. They left on Korean Air’s 15 hour flight to Seoul, Korea. That much I know for sure. That is the only place  Korean Air flies the Airbus 380 to from ATL. From there, I’m making an educated guess that Bali is their final destination. They would have an overnight layover and then fly the next 7 hour leg into Bali. You know how all the franchises end up going to the same places. Continue reading
