I was up most of the night last night and slept in late this morning. When I opened my email it was full of messages about James Freeman being married. I start sorting emails as soon as I get up and before I am awake. I am still trying to wrap my head around this.
My heart is breaking for Kenya. It was just ten days ago that sites were falsely reporting that Kenya and James had gotten engaged in Las Vegas. That was hard enough for her to deal with I am sure. Can you imagine everyone texting her asking her if she is engaged, and she was not?
It was just months ago that Kenya started sharing some of their dating life on her Instagram account. I knew it was serious then because Kenya generally doesn’t post her love interests on Instagram. She captioned one of their date photos with
Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives. Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness. #matchmaker #KingJames #FriendsFirst #MillionaireMatchmaker.
Everyone was happy for her. Continue reading
Bravotv.com: Do you think NeNe will write her check to the charity?
Kenya Moore: Sadly, I do not think it’s clear if NeNe will ever write the check. If she was honest and sincere about putting our differences aside for charity last year, she would have matched the donation as she promised. She made a promise to the kids of the city of Detroit to donate $20,000. She has made every excuse in the world as to why she hadn’t written it. First, she didn’t think the donation was real, which is why I posted it on social media so that no one would have doubts. Conveniently she now claims I somehow am making a mockery of charity. This is the same woman who wears $20,000 outfits and posts photos on her graffitied $12,000 Hermes Birkin bags on social media, but I’m the one making a mockery of charity? She also tried to say I didn’t donate my own money, which is a lie.
The Detroit Public Schools Foundation has acknowledged they received a total of $40,000 on behalf of myself, which includes the additional $20,000 win from my appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. She also just bought a $2 million home. Obviously this is about her lack of character. You are nothing in life if you can’t depend on your word. It takes a real morally debased person to steal from children. Yet, I still pray that the NeNe who is a good person will do the right thing.
Don’t hold your breath Kenya, I don’t believe there is a good person in there anywhere.
Okay, it’s finally time for part three of the RHOA. If you missed the other recaps you can catch them here. Just in time for Mother’s Day, Nene is going to decide she has issues with her mother abandoning her for the first time.
Nene and Peter
Nene begins screaming at top of her lungs that she never flirted with Peter. SCREAMING her lies as if that would make them true. Peter says that he and Nene have similar personalities just like Kenya and Apollo do. Um what? The Peter says that everyone owes Kenya an apology for calling her a whore for all these seasons. Peter says that he a Nene did not flirt. Peter says that Porsha has a reckless mouth saying he is cheating on his wife. He says if he is going to cheat on his wife, he is going to go hit something big, like J-Lo not waitresses. Oh well if I was Cynthia, I’d feel so much better. WTF. Peter?
Kandi and Todd
Time for more about Kandi’s marriage. Andy asks when the last time they had sex was. Two nights ago. Todd says the baby will happen soon. Andy gives condolences about Todd’s mother, Sharon dying. He tells the story of how he found out. He sent a neighbor in to check on her and she had a stroke. Gregg spoke at Todd’s mother’s funeral. Why? And Peter also came for the funeral. Nene tried everything she could to get to the funeral but she was in Cinderella at the time. Phaedra made a phone call to a funeral home for Todd. Todd is teary-eyed. Todd says that MJ’s TV apology was half-assed but she apologized more genuinely after Sharon died. Todd and Kandi fight about the prenup again. Apparently, Todd doesn’t wear his wedding ring and he has more than one ring to match each watch. That’s weird. More talk about how Kandi puts too much of the relationship on TV. Kandi says her boobs are bigger because she has gained weight and is taking steroids. Continue reading
I have some curious news, that I have not been sharing about RHOA. My sources are saying that the reason pickup letters have not gone out yet is because the show has not yet been picked up for another season. This is not normal. I do not think it means that we have seen the last of RHOA, despite the lower ratings this season, the viewership is high enough to pick up another season. I mean Vanderpump Rules has been picked up and their ratings were not close to RHOA’s ratings even at RHOA’s lowest point. I believe the hold up is related to production. With Carlos King leaving, whatever the real circumstances are, there are going to be a lot of changes to production. They may even be considering another production company all together. There were a lot of audio problems with the reunion, Bravo may decide to make a fresh start.
So, they can’t send out the pickup letters until all of that is resolved. However, NBCu Cable Upfronts are this week. The parties start tonight and the days are jam packed until Thursday. Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. is when the NBCu Cable Upfronts will happen. I assume they will announce the RHOA being picked up then. Three RHOA will be in attendance, Kenya, Kandi, and Nene. It seems those are the only three invited to upfronts. This means Phaedra, Claudia, and Cynthia are… not secure in their spots. It’s clear Bravo wants to shake the show up much like they did RHONY a few seasons ago (and we all saw how well that turned out.) Continue reading
Kenya Moore has released the full episode of the Life Twirls On Pilot. I finally took some time to watch it and I think it’s pretty funny. It is littered with RHOA inside jokes. When Kenya gets some face work done the first thing I thought of was Brandi’s face.
My thoughts on the show are that Janet Hubert would have needed to be replaced anyway. I think her character is based on Kenya’s real aunt with some silly folklore thrown in for laughs. Since we have seen her real aunt, Janet just doesn’t work for me. I wonder if her real aunt can act?
Brandon is cast as the over the top gay. I love him, but I think they went a bit far over the top. The general public is not going to get the tossed salad joke. It is pretty funny to me. But I think the average viewer would just find it weird.
Some things worked better than others. I thought the camera angles were very well done. Shots like the scene that opened on the jerk tofu were interesting. Continue reading
I have been ignoring Janet Hubert’s ridiculous behavior on her Facebook or wherever it was because her claims seem utterly ridiculous. And she really seemed to like the attention no matter how bad it made her look. It seems now that the union she kept claiming she was going to report Kenya to has reviewed her claims and determined that she was, as Kenya has always maintained, properly paid for her work.
Kenya’s finale blog talks about the reunion bringing her closure with her differences with some of the women on the show. She manages to discuss those women without grabbing them by their weave, without dragging them across a stage, raising her voice she gets them all together with intelligent commentary written in standard English. Sure this type of language flies right over their pointy little heads, but there is no need to roll around in the mud with pigs.
In other news, I found that photo in Bravo’s released promo pictures of behind the scenes action very interesting. I can’t believe my source never mentioned this. I generally have to ask very specific questions to get good answers. I would have never thought to ask if the housewives see the questions ahead of time.
Regarding Phaedra she says:
“I was respectful toward Phaedra during the conversation, but it’s clear that after our truce, she still wants to call me a whore and liken me to other “whores in the bible.” God doesn’t like ugly. Maybe sitting alone on the sofa now is confirmation.”
I’m sure that Apollo was there in spirit.
“In typical fashion, Phaedra attacks my character in a preplanned soliloquy. But in her own words, her “THOT” friend thinks that spreading your legs wide open and accepting gifts from married men is admirable. Yet, it’s basically teaching young girls that having a square card reader between your butt cheeks is how one becomes “blessed” and “successful.” That’s why I will always be a Queen, literally and figuratively, because when I am wrong, I can apologize, forgive, and move forward. I can love, though I have not always been loved, and I can be talented and successful on my own merit without needing men to finance my lifestyle, and I can be the bigger person when others try to bring me down.”
You would think a former evangelist would understand what blessings are. Then again you would think someone from a “civil rights activist” family would know what the underground railroad was as well.
I didn’t realize until today that I missed the Blood Sweat & Heels episode last week because they stuck Watch What Happens Live on the end of the reunion messing up my DVR schedule. I already have two shows taping at 10. I hate when Andy tacks WWHL on where it doesn’t belong.
We start this episode of the reunion with Andy bringing up the challenge on the last reunion about donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya did as she said she would and Nene did not. Nene says she will do it when she gets ready. Kenya says that really gets under her skin. She talks about being such a rich bitch with all of this extra money but she wants to be petty when it comes to a charitable donation for children. Nene says that she feels like Kenya is trying to “make a mockery out of it.” Nene questions, “Who puts their check on social media?” Um how about someone who was challenged to make the donation on national television. A better question is why would a person claim they were going to write a check for 20K and challenge a colleague to MATCH it, and then never write the check even after the colleague did match it? Nene goes on the “she is right!” trip she has been on for the whole reunion.
Next we discuss, “the new Cynthia.” Someone asks Phaedra about her vicious comments about Cynthia having bills and legal cases all over Atlanta and they ask why she would say such personal and vicious things. Phaedra says it is because Cynthia was spreading rumors about Mr. Chocolate at a time when she was most vulnerable Girl, please. It was your husband who was spreading those rumors and Cynthia brought them to you. She is not your BFF, she had no bond to you to prevent her from discussing what Apollo was saying with whomever she pleased. Cynthia says Phaedra could haves squashed it am moved on just like she did with Nene when she called her a “head doctor.” Phaedra forgave Nene because she apologized. LOL. Naw, Phaedra overlooked Nene’s jabs at her because they both needed some backup this season. Cynthia says she apologized in the Philippines and it was not accepted. Phaedra somehow goes on to say how many jobs she has. Again. Where are these jobs? Has anyone seen them? And how does she do them all when she is flying around to churches trying to sell her etiquette book and passing the love offering plate? Allegedly. Hell even her charities are suspect according to those in attendance at the last one. Continue reading
That one urban site that likes to make things up is reporting that Kenya Moore is engaged! As much as I would love to report that this is true. It is not. I checked with her PR people moments ago the story is entirely false. Kenya is in Las Vegas and last night posted a picture of a ring she was trying on with the comment “Anything can happen in Vegas!” The ring was not even an engagement ring. But it is a very slow news day today, (Hence my lack of posts so far) and they decided to make up the story. Continue reading
And it looks great. But it is very interesting that Janet Hubert is in it. Janet who is a little bit off kilter, is the lady who played Will Smith’s mom on Fresh Prince of Bel Air Before being replaced by another actress. Hubert has been going off on Kenya on her Facebook page for months claiming that Kenya never paid her for her work. Hubert also refuses to allow her work to be shown on RHOA. Continue reading
I’m so pleased to see Daisy from Blood Sweat & Heels on WWHL with Kenya Moore tonight. If you don’t watch the show she is battling cancer and it is great to see her out and about.
Kenya is very beautiful tonight in a tamed down ensemble. Daisy is also beautiful with a bit more bling. I and not even going to go there with the Prancing bartenders. Nene’s under three minute (or so I was told) appearance on that show makes me want to puke. If you don’t already know the Prancing whatevers are some gay kids who have been excluded from a team for being gay or not being female or whatever their crisis may be. But the story is that Nene has been crowing about some filming she did on Oxygen as if she had a new show. No. She went on to a show about gay people show them some support. Did she offer to kiss their ass and throw them a gay parade? Nene has been repeatedly offensive to the gay community and this was a DUMB PR move for the Prancing Elites or whatever. I will not be watching.
Kenya is STUNNING tonight. She says she heard Porsha cheated on Kordell, not the other way around. Andy asks if Kenya’s dress was inspired by Beyoncé and she said no it was custom made for her by a designer who is her friend. As she says this the photo of Beyoncé in a very similar dress is shown side by side with hers. So Yes. It was inspired by that dress obviously. And Kenya wore it better. And Kenya’s dress is prettier.
Andy makes fun of Nene walking out of all the scenes this season and counts how many times Nene said everyone else is right. Ten times. Kenya said they cut a lot out but it was pretty much her response to everyone. Andy is not so ass kissy to Nene when she is not there. He is actually being almost nice to Kenya.
Daisy says she is better and has her “twirl back”
