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

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

Exclusive! Nene Throws A Fit and Argues With RHOA Production

Why hello there fellow bloggers! Please don’t step on my exclusive and remember to use only excerpts and give proper credit. I’d had for you to catch Ebola for Christmas due to bad karma. It’s not a good time of year to upset the baby Jesus.

I was pretty sure that other than Nene’s Broadway debut filming for RHOA had already ended. But it seems like they decided to extend filming to include an event yesterday in Atlanta  at Frederick Douglass High School.  The event was to highlight the Save Our Sons program and Phaedra Parks was one of the members of a panel. Here is the official description of the even from their press release, ” The S.O.S. rally will include several panel discussions on topics of interest including supporting the development and learning of African-American males in metro Atlanta, the responsibilities of law enforcement officer and the rights of individuals, supporting those who are already in the criminal justice system and recommendations to optimize opportunities for African-American youth. The event will also feature special performances and a community resource fair.”

Here is where it gets interesting. I had a commenter who was at the event who reported it was being filmed. Not only was Phaedra there, but Kenya was there (um why? I thought Phaedra and Kenya remained mortal enemies this season.) as well as Nene (Um why? She is supposed to be in NYC.  According to Nene’s twitter timeline she hosted an event well into the wee hours of the morning yesterday. How could she have gotten there.?  So this morning after getting ahold of a Bravo source, I asked for confirmation of the commenters account. The source confirmed it in its entirety.  So as strange as it seems,  Phaedra, Nene and Kenya came face to face to face yesterday. Minor edit: Also in attendance were Claudia, Cynthia and Peter and Porsha.  That makes more sense. :) Kandi did NOT attend. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks Was “Unmoved” By The News Apollo Lied

Suddenly, this seems like a plea to Apollo's cell mate.

Suddenly, this seems like a plea to Apollo’s cell mate.

Phaedra has written a Bravo blog! It seems she has eeked out some time for us despite her lengthy client list and constant court room appearances, book sales, video sales, and of course burying corpses of various species.  Hurray!  Only it isn’t a blog. It seems that Bravo has resorted to giving certain housewives a Q & A  format to actually encourage them to get something in each week. Writing a blog post is a difficult thing for some it would seem.

For the most part the blog is about her tirelessly role as a mother to two young boys. Phaedra really does do it all! With help from her mother, a fulltime nanny and a small tribe of babysitters, Phaedra manages to be “Super Mom.” I’ve spared you most of that.  Because the important part is what she has to say about Kenya. 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

Kenya Moore Spills The Tea on Phaedra Parks Affair With “Mr. Chocolate”

 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta - Season 5

On the season seven preview it was revealed that Phaedra Parks had been cheating on Apollo. We see Apollo telling Peter about it. We see Cynthia telling Peter about it. And we see Kenya confronting Phaedra about it. It seems that Kenya may have a right to poke at Phaedra a bit this season since next week, Apollo comes clean about the lies he told about Phaedra. I hope he explains what the point of all that was. It sure didn’t make his homelife any easier, or Kenya’s work life for that matter.

I’ve never understood the two major types of shade thrown at Kenya, half the time her cast mates are saying she can’t get a man and the other half of the time Phaedra is calling her a whore. Which on is it? If the previews are to be believed Miss Southern Belle has been getting her bell rung by someone who is not Apollo for quite awhile.

Kenya was recently interviewed by Hollywood Life and she spilled some interesting tea on Phaedra’s African lover. 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

WWHL With Caroline Manzo: AKA RHONJ Part 1.5

WWHL CarolineFirst of all, who is this chick and why is she in Caroline’s chair? I hate the new “rule” (that is very flexible) about first time visitors sitting in the first chair. And yes, I know who she is, she needs to move out of that chair.

Andy brings up Gia’s girl group and they talk about whether it is in appropriate. Michelle doesn’t want to say and Caroline says it’s right at the cusp. We’ve been talking about it here A LOT with weave pulling and trash talking amongst ourselves.  Again, the fact that the argument is about whether or not it is in appropriate means it is in appropriate. But that is so two days ago.  Ain’t nobody got time for that right now, Andrew. It’s only a thirty minute show. Let’s get to the reunion!

Andy is basically making Caroline respond to the reunion as if she was on it. Caroline’s response is “awesome thanks!” He says Tre said some weird stuff tonight. He rolls a clip of Tre saying doesn’t miss Jac and also claiming in six season she has never hit anyone below the belt. Caroline says of course she hit below the belt. We all hit below the belt. Just admit that you hit below the belt. We saw it, there is no denying what we see. Sidenote: Michelle has no idea what is going on and for the rest of the show Caroline and Andy will probably talk over her as if she is not even there which is why, if she has to be there at all, she should not be in the first chair. No offense to Michelle but it’s not a good night for her to get any attention. This was a booking blunder. 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
