Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: With Friends Like These…

RHOA Demetria party with Kandi

BY BEN C

I’m going to be honest – this episode of RHOA , titled “There’s No Business Like Friend Business” should have just been called “There’s No Business Watching This Mess.”  I understand not every episode can be filled with Porsha getting cooter-punched, but this certainly was a filler episode if I’ve ever seen one. We open up with a quick montage of Kenya perfecting her online-dating profile, Kim on a Skype call, Porsha hosting at Dish Nation (I gotta give it to her, I’m usually not the biggest Porsha fan – but the girl does a good job over at Dish Nation.) and finally Cynthia receiving YELLOW roses from Peter. Per Google, yellow roses symbolize friendship, joy & good health. Real good look for someone in the midst of a potential cheating scandal. I’m not a flower guy myself, but I’d say red is typically the way to go in this situation. Cynthia is generally unimpressed. Maybe she googled the meaning of yellow roses too.

We cut to Kandi & DonJuan in a meeting with Demetria (!!!) & Roger Bobb about producing new music together. Demetria must really need that day-rate. The two ladies have recorded a single called “Unnecessary Trouble” – they want to start promo for the song, and film & release a music video. DonJuan steps up as mommy (PS where is Mama Joyce this season?!) and announces Kandi’s high-risk pregnancy and that she must not be over worked. OK mommy. Kandi comments in her talking head if J-Lo had a baby over 40 with no time off, so can she. DonJuan continues to come for his Peach. Watch out, Papa Smurf – you’ve got some competition!

Nene Is Copying Marlo?

Nene and Marlo

 

Marlo recently posted this with the caption “you don’t know me?”  Looks like someone is copying Marlo…

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Duking it Out

It’s time for the latest episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta and I am already irked by Phaedra Parks tagline. I think I am going to cringe every time I hear that.  And Sidenote:  RHOA’s uber Christian was filming post production stuff on a Sunday morning today.  And aint none of her neighbors seen Jesus there as they tried to maneuver out of the cul de sac to get to church. Allegedly.  My pet peeve is people who are offended on behalf of another group, but I feel like my years of faithful attendance at Southern Baptist Churches from Atlanta to Tripoli Libya and my extensive study of both the Bible and the Koran allow me to be justifiably outraged by Phaedra’s mockery of religion. Seriously, this is going to bug me all season. Apologies in advance.  I also hate Kenya’s twirl crap.  Hated it and her in season one and now that I love her I hate it even more. It’s so played out. We got our first Kim Fields’ intro today, and I love it even thought I know she hated mentioning Facts of Life.

We start back with the totally uneven sparring between Kenya and Sheree. Kenya  apologizes for calling Sheree a bitch….ass.  And Kenya steps away so Sheree can apologizeto Cynthia  and so we can get a talking head of Phaedra who is thrilled that Sheree tried it.  Lord knows all Phaedra can do is threaten Kenya  with her pocket book like Thelma on Mama’s FamilyContinue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Premiere Recap: The Shadey Bunch

RHOA AD

 

Good grief at the tea rolling in on #RHOA tonight right up until the minute the premiere starts! Check here for the latest status on Tammy’s peach which was confirmed moments before the premier.   The very first scene of the previews has Tammy sitting right there on the sofa when Porsha arrives in her trashy outfit that Phaedra is also wearing in Miami.

Porsha’s tagline changed a bit to “I’m about to give you life, so stay out of my way.”  Which is only slightly less nonsensical that the one the pushed out here.  I still can’t believe those are the taglines they chose. So bad.

We start with a cool, Ladies of London style montage of everyone doing their own thing.

Kandi

Isn’t that a Married to Medicine doctor? I find it hard to believe that she is their real doctor. Already we are filming fake shit. Kandi and Todd got pregnant through IVF and are three months pregnant when filming began. At least according to this scene. Todd didn’t know he had a daughter until she was older? I didn’t know that, did I? So this is Todd’s first time dealing with a pregnant wife.  The doc tells Kandi to take it easy.

Todd has a lot of Apollo’s stuff in the garage including his motorcycles. Todd tells Kandi that Apollo says he calls home once a month or so and Phaedra won’t even pick up the phone. Kandi and Phaedra aren’t really talking at this time. Kandi explains that Todd produced a workout video for Phaedra called Phine Baby that was never released. Phaedra never paid Todd for his work. Damn! Kandi will never learn not to do business with housewives! Todd is pissed and he wants Kandi to tell Phaedra to pay him. Continue reading

Here Is The RHOA Tea From Kenya Moore’s Launch Party

RHOA Filming Watermarked

L-R Sheree, Cynthia, Mallory, Amiyah, Kenya, Marlo, Porsha,Phaedra, Kim Fields (and her husband)

TMZ keeps running these stories about who production has hired to “replace Nene.” First it was Kim Fields, then it was Sheree Whitfield, now it is Amiyah Scott. Well, one out of three ain’t bad. I told you that Kim Fields recently worked the kinks out of her contract and is now filming here:.

As for the usual game of musical peaches, Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi remain as close to sure things as we ever have at this point in the season. I’m told Kim Fields has officially signed on. All the other potentials have fallen by the wayside. So that leaves Phaedra, Porsha and even Cynthia’s sister Mallory to play hot potato for a peach. Andy seems to love Phaedra so she’s probably going to end up with one. Carlos loves Porsha so things are much improved for her.

At this point, barring any last minute indecision by production, the peaches go to Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi, Phaedra, Porsha and Kim.  I do not think there will be a seventh peach, but you never know.

What TMZ doesn’t seem to understand is that Sheree, Marlo, Mallory and Amiyah showing up to a taping doesn’t put them on the show as paid participants.  If I started a new post for every picture I saw, I would have been on the Kim Fields is out! bus.  Or Sheree is in!  bandwagon.  I actually know what is happening behind the scenes and it’s just not that simple.  Sheree, Marlo and Mallory are making day rate pay of about $1.500 or so depending on a few variables.  Amiyah probably just signed a release.  The only person Amiyah has followed on Twitter is Kenya and that is because she was at her event.

The only thing the photos tell me is that Phaedra and Porsha have seemingly secured their peaches as I predicted above.  With the upheaval in production this season, things are more precarious than ever.

Guess Who Came to Cynthia Bailey’s Eyewear Launch Party?

RHOA Sheree and Marlo

Last night Cynthia had a big launch party for her eyewear collection. And guess who showed up? Marlo Hampton and Sheree Whitfield.  It seems that we will be getting a glimpse of both of them.  I’ve been sent several pictures and I am not sure who owns them, but I am going to post the one above because it was sent to me on Twitter.

In other photos I’ve seen, Phaedra and Porsha were standing together with matching stank faces. It seems there is a lot of disharmony in this group.  My sources are reporting that Kim Field’s has officially signed on as a full time houswive, and yet, I saw no evidence of her at the party.  That doesn’t mean she was not there, but I didn’t see her in any photos.  You know me, I might not even recognize her.

I don’t think that Sheree and Marlo will be regularly seen on the show, and I would doubt either would be actual “friends of the housewives” (FOH).  Acutally, if Marlo and Kenya still get along she may have a better shot than Sheree.  Sheree has been selling her used shoes on Instagram lately, so I hope they paid her for this appearance since it seems she needs the money.
