Taking into account this newly released article, where Phaedra discusses her close friendships with Kandi and Sheree and relationships from last season, here is how I break down her friend card. I could be wrong about Cynthia, but I feel like Phaedra could be just a little bit jealous though she would never admit it.
Good Friends: Kandi, Sheree Work Friends: Kim Not Friends: Nene, Cynthia
Cynthia’s friends chart is probably the hardest to figure of the season. Cynthia is so stunningly beautiful; I imagine she has a hard time having close female friends that don’t come from her amazing gene pool. But that’s okay, she is super busy. Cynthia opened up The Bailey Agency, a modeling school last July. Rumor has it Miss Jay showed up to teach her students how to work the runway. Expect to see Miss Jay in all his glory in an early episode. Also, Peter has a new lounge in Grant Park, Bar One, that is already pulling quite the crowd. I am sure she can get on with her fabulous life without the haters. She is being a really good friend to Nene. Grrrrrrrl, be careful with Nene. She’s just hoping some of that pretty of yours rubs off. Trust. Cynthia is a smart girl, and never speaks badly about the others. I think she gets they are all simply co-workers but plays along with Nene because Nene needs someone on her side.
Good Friends: Nobody Work Friends: Kim, Kandi, Sheree, Phaedra, NeNe Not Friends: Nobody
Kim, Kim, Kim, what is going on with her this season? We surely don’t expect her to interact with Nene unless absolutely required by production. Nene never really got over that whole Tardy for the Party debacle. I really don’t see Kim being tight with anyone. She’s already got her own spin-off show. She doesn’t need to blow sunshine up anyone’s butt. She has a fiancé and a baby and her two girls. BTW, Brielle is on twitter and is a lovely, caring, funny girl Kim obviously did a great job with her. I can’t wait to see Kim bring the drama this season with nothing holding her back.
Good Friends: Nobody Work Friends: Kandi, Phaedra, Sheree Not Friends: Nene, Cynthia (guilt by association)
I expect Sheree to have a lot of screen time this season. Phaedra is representing her in her legal action against her ex-husband so that could get juicy. Sheree also has her “events”. Is she still doing the She by Sheree thing? We shall see. We will see Sheree and Kim get closer on camera this season as a result of their mutual hatred of NeNe. Expect to see more of Sheree and her family time.
