Well, Andy loves a good jumpsuit and Phaedra is wearing one. However it is white and looks like a summer outfit. Also her wedding ring she bought herself is on as is some other very large looking rock on her right hand. Hmmmmm Is that where the money went? Allegedly? Just asking. Let’s see if Andy asks about it.
The drinking word is “Roger Bobb” but I think it should be Jesus. Andy goes straight to Nene’s fucked up hair. Phaedra who is currently one of Nene’s only allies says “it was giving me Blondie.” Please. It’s ridiculous. If ever there was a time for Phaedra to say “Fix it Jesus” this was her moment. And she blew it.
Andy asks Phaedra how it has been watching the show back. She says anytime you are going through something very personal in the media and on TV it is very difficult and quite uncomfortable.
They replay the uncomfortable scenes between Apollo and Phaedra and Phaedra can’t watch. She closes her eyes through most all of it. Andy says it seemed a little threatening to him. I agree. She has on a HUGE costume statement necklace. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I think if she were dressed in all black I would really like it. Phaedra talks about Apollo’s aggression. Um, he was never home and that was your issue with him. If he was so aggressive, why would you want him to come home more? This is all a set up to the complete fabrication of Apollo being at the house on the day he was supposed to self-report. She says he was on an emotional roller coaster. Phaedra thought that his line of conversation was in appropriate for the setting. I agree. Continue reading
I don’t know if it is the crap weather, or the fact that my days and nights are sort of backwards, or the lack of sunlight, or what but there just seems to be a big cloud of negativity everywhere. I guess it is sort of fitting for tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta because tonight we finally get Demetria. Word on the street is she is full of negativity for the first part of filming. Plus Apollo is back. The editing this season is crazy out of order and odd.
Kandi’s family is all getting together at Aunt Nora’s house for a cookout. Mama Joyce is mad at Kandi for talking about her boyfriend tearing up Kandi’s house. OMG! I want to eat some of all that! Oh dear, homemade red velvet cake!
Aunt Nora makes Kandi sit down and talk with her mother. Mama Joyce says she is taking medicine to try not and get an aneurism. She is trying to be calm. Nothing is resolved but they sort of agree to put things inside.
Phaedra stops over at Kandi’s and Kandi is trying to eat healthy because she wants to get pregnant. Phaedra says things are tense. Kandi has a cousin who just happens to be there to talk to Phaedra about how to tell her boys their daddy is going to prison. He has been to prison or something. This is a ridiculous scene and it’s clear Phaedra is not happy to be filming it. Oh Melvin’s dad is in prison and he resents not being told. I love the red leather handbag Phaedra is carrying. Kandi and Phaedra cry. Phaedra looks really pretty. Continue reading

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

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

Kenya points out in her blog, that all the lies lead back to one person…
The house of lies that Phaedra has built is slowly but surely crumbling down around her. Clearly when a woman who prides herself as a Christian while praying to God as she calls someone a whore and a slut is the real devil to be protected from. Everyone can see through her smokescreen and the blatant, hypocritical lies that will be her ultimate downfall. Keep watching, the best of her lies is yet to come.
Now, her latest conspiracy theory is that I tried to pay Apollo to lie about a lie! But I am the delusional person? All the nasty rumors on this show about me being bipolar, broke, an alcoholic, a whore, and someone who pays for boyfriends and has a rented car all came from Phaedra’s vengeful, hate-filled mind. The real fans of the show know this to be a fact. Just watch Seasons 5 and 6. Let’s watch a flashback to that! Regardless of if anyone believed the unsubstantiated, baseless rumors or not, they were all fabricated from one person — PHAEDRA. Continue reading
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.
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 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

All the ladies come together to brawl tomorrow. Here is the first look. All I can look at is Cynthia’s nose. Kandi’s and Phaedra’s seem to have lesser versions of the whole weird color thing. I guess the lighting on that side of the table is bad. Couldn’t they have fixed that in post production? Am I the only one distracted?
Because LALATE ruled the Internets today….#NENE
I am slow on the go tonight so this may take forever, but here we go on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m also trying a new format tonight so let’s get on with the show.
I don’t even need to see this scene before I know it is going to be more evidence that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is never going to last. We are at the Kandi Factory and I am already thinking that they should have talked about WAY more stuff before hooking up. They don’t seem to agree about any of the big issues. This already seems so staged. I get that it is all staged. But could two people ever be more mismatched? I hope for Kandi’s sake this is not how she runs a business. She seems to know how to manage money and run a business, so I don’t believe any of this. Sorry, Bravo.
Wait. Why is Todd all up in her business?
Kandi has a team meeting about “her brand” but Todd decides to chime in. Kandi is suddenly on Don Juan over some shit about having Kandi give some classes on songwriting. This may be a good time to point out that in my VERY early days when maybe five people read here that Don Juan took it upon himself to question why I had the nerve to wonder why Kandi was doing an event at some Asian restaurant in the Midwest. I spent way too long looking for that post. It was a restaurant like Chin Chin if you are from Atlanta, it’s decent Chinese but not the place you would expect to hire a housewive. I loved Kandi and thought it was beneath her. Don Juan let me know that Kandi is a single mom just trying to support a child. Um WTF? She’s a millionaire. How is going to St Louis or wherever going to make a difference? She’s actually losing time with her child for a few thousand dollars she will never spend? It made no sense.
Sorry, back to the show.
Todd says that everyone is too comfortable. He chastises the staff. Kandi actually tries to draw out Todd more. Like she is asking him to drop the hammer because she has hired FRIENDS for her entire staff. Dumb move.
Later Don Juan asks Todd to step out so he can talk to Kandi. Basically he is pissed that Todd is reprimanding people. He is NOT an employee. Don Juan called this months ago. Kandi doesn’t realize how much Kandi does.
Todd has a conversation with Don Juan. Don Juan is also right. He puts his resume up against Kandi. WTF is TODD fucking up her business relationship of 12 years? Don Juan knows EVERYTHING Kandi which is why he tried to check me with 37 viewers. I may not be a fan of Don Juan but the boy is on top of shit. I am starting to side with Mama Joyce here. Todd is a cunt. I love Don Juan for saying, “Let’s put him in a step stair so he can look me in my eye.” Kandi is fucking up.

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

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
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
