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

Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan Judging Hot Men!

Instagram

Instagram

On Saturday, Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia faced a long grueling day of filming. Okay, it may have been a long day but it certainly doesn’t sound grueling to me.  With all of the various factions on the upcoming season with way too many “housewives” I’m going to refer to these three who seem to be quite happy filming together as Team Pretty.

So Team Pretty was tasked with spending their weekend with a ton of hunky guys because the Bailey Agency was hired by Ebony Magazine to find twenty hot men for the February 2015 issue of  Ebony. The ladies spent Saturday at the Sheraton hotel holding  an open casting call for successful men between the ages of 28 -50.  I guess Kenya got some digits. :) It sounds like a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon to me.

Late Breaking EXCLUSIVE! Phaedra Has Left The House! I Repeat Phaedra Has Left The House!

RHOA Nene Birkin

EXCLUSIVE DISCLAIMER: Stealing this story will probably give your mother liver cancer and make your children retarded. DON’T DO IT! Just quote and link like a normal person. I’ve started giving head to local entertainment lawyers in my spare time to save in lawyers fees and they are all very happy with me.  I’m just saying. #HeadDoctor

Tomorrow in the ATL a new fancypants multi-use complex is having its grand opening. I don’t know if this is happening all over the country but here multi-use complexes are the next big thing. From Buckhead,  to a stones throw from my ghetto, high-end multi-use conglomerates have been booming for the past decade. The concept is live, work and socialize all in the same little neighborhood.  Most of them have high-end townhouses or apartments, a Whole Foods, and a variety of upscale restaurants and taverns in addition to some sort of shopping area, movie theater and other attractions. Atlantic Station was one of the most popular ones to date in the Atlanta area.

Tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand kahuna of such developments, Buckhead Atlanta. While the official opening is tomorrow, it seems they are allowing the felons by Bravo adjacent  in tonight for an invitation only black tie event to celebrate the housewives who have tons of money to hide/launder spend  at Hermes.  The invitations went out to their best Atlanta customers and clearly to the folks related to people they have a promotional deal with like, Bravo. Hermes and Fado Irish Pub have been there for a couple of years now, right in the middle of all of the construction. Tonight Hermes cut the ribbon on their new and improved location. The whole shebang will take many more months to roll out but RHOA and Love and Hip Hop Atlanta have done so much for  Christian Louboutin’s reputation he has decided to bless us with a local freestanding store.  I could barely type that with a straight face, but it is true that you will soon have a freestanding Loub store here in Atlanta.  Other high-end stores include Jimmy Choo, Alice+Olivia, and Akris.  Plus a bunch of overpriced restaurants I’ve never heard of because we need more of those. Not. Continue reading

Things I Should Have Blogged About, But Didn’t

Shahs of Sunset Season 3 2014 Final Episode

There were some minor things that happened last week that I didn’t get around to blogging, mostly because none of it by itself seemed to warrant a blog. I’m cleaning out my post suggestion emails today and I thought I would just list some of them here briefly.

Shah of Sunset premiere has been pulled indefinitely. The premiere was set for October 13th but the post production crew has walked out. A curious thing has been going on with reality show production workers.  Primarily in New York and California, production crews on reality TV are pushing to join the unions that normally represent scripted  television.  The whole reason reality shows became so popular was a writer’s strike by scripted writers many years ago. During the strike, networked hustled to find new things to put on the air and a variety of reality shows, game shows, and singing contests hit the airwaves. Production workers then began to work in reality based TV that was not unionized. Now that reality shows have script writers and production works long insane hours, they are not wanting to work as independent contractors anymore and to be covered like normal employees with medical benefits and sick days. Shahs is produced by a subsidiary of Ryan Seacrest Productions and they supposedly open to negotiations but nothing has happened yet so post production is walking the picket line.

Wendy Williams returns tomorrow.  She has promised to literally eat crow on the episode after promising that she would if Kim and Kanye lasted over 72 days. I know she is often wrong about her hot topics, but I still sort of miss her show when it is not on. Will you be watching? I’m hoping this helps me to get up earlier in the mornings and stop staying up all night. Continue reading

I am so behind today and only have an hour and a half until Couples Therapy.  While drama raged on at Phaedra’s house, the fashionista gang of RHOA is in NYC to support Cynthia Bailey’s participation in Betsy Johnson’s show. Confirmed so far are Kandi, Kenya and Demetria.  Clearly Phaedra is not there, nor is Nene or Porsha.  Not sure about Claudia.  Sorry I just don’t have time to research this today. I am doing about ten posts at once right now. Continue reading
