This should be an exclusive unless my source got chatty. It’s finally time for the RHOA to film the reunion episode and there is so much potential for disaster! First of all both Kenya and Nene will have to leave their current engagements to fly in to the ATL. This won’t be much of an issue for Nene because she and Tony have already secured rehearsal space here for when Nene has to be in Atlanta. So she is likely already back here. But Kenya is working on Celebrity Apprentice all day today and then flying out tonight and likely flying back right after the reunion. For that reason Andy won’t be able to keep everyone there until the wee hours of the morning like he tends to do. They are going to have to do this down and dirty this time!
So what can we expect? LOTS of drama that is what.
Nene has allegedly unfollowed her number one foot soldier, Cynthia on Twitter in the past few days! It seems that Cynthia is none to pleased with Nene disrespecting her man. With Cynthia washing her hands of Nene, Nene is going to be looking for an ally. Porsha recently said on the Bethenny show that she and Nene are back in the friend zone. Neither Nene nor Porsha like Kenya at all so they will likely team up on her.
Nene and Porsha will be allies.
In the other corner, we have Kenya. This season Kenya has improved her image and upped her fanbase; however, that more positive image does not extend to her cast mates. Nene, Porsha, Phaedra and Kandi cannot stand her. But she does have a shocking new ally. Cynthia. You might have noticed that the RHOA have been super crappy at keeping their blogs updated lately. Nene and Kenya are an excused absence because they simply do not have time. Kandi has never enjoyed blogging and Phaedra has the whole Apollo situation to deal with and her own legal battles with Angela Stanton which are not resolving in her favor. You should totally click those links if you have not read them, the deposition are hysterical! Porsha can’t really read or write that well I’m assuming so she gets a pass on blogging. That leaves us with Cynthia.
If you check out her short blog from March 19th on Bravo, she talks about one thing, Kenya and her maternal desires. Cynthia says, ” I sincerely wish Kenya is able to have the unbelievable fulfillment that I felt when I became a mother. I feel that Kenya has a strong desire for her own family because of her relationship with her mother. I believe that becoming a mother will not only satisfy Kenya, but also fill this void, giving her an overwhelming feeling of completeness. My heart goes out to her and all women who have missed the opportunity of being raised by a loving and present mother. However, life always presents missed opportunities. God willing and when the time is right, Kenya will be the mother that she never had. I am hopeful that Kenya is walking into her time and moment for this precious gift! “ It seems Cynthia is team Kenya now. But will she speak up for her or herself at the reunion?
Cynthia and Kenya will be allies.
I expect Kandi to lay low and promote the soundtrack from her play which hits the market next week. She might talk about her marriage to Todd which is supposed to happen next week. Word on the street the wedding will be a spin-off. I am not sure if Bravo is ready to announce that yet, but by the time the reunion airs, Kandi should be a married woman unless Mama Joyce comes up with a way to stop it! Kandi only likes Phaedra. Phaedra will be repeating phrases like, “I can’t comment on any active legal case.” repeatedly.
Kandi and Phaedra will be allies.
That said, while it looks like we have three teams of two, only Kandi and Phaedra are tight. As we know, every reunion needs a target. This season it will once again be Kenya. In all actuality, Kenya’s only glimmer of hope for an ally is Cynthia. But Cynthia can’t exactly be counted on. I’m not too worried. Kenya is likely to be exhausted from all the early morning calls on Celebrity Apprentice, but I think she can handle herself. Plus we really don’t know whether Nene or NaeNae will show up for the reunion. Nene has been on her best behavior for DWTS. Who do you think will be on the reunion couches? Nene or NaeNae? Will missing an entire day of practice damage Nene’s dance next Monday? Will Kenya be given a pass from the ladies on her team or will she be in danger of getting fired for missing a full day of work?
Tomorrow it all goes down in the ATL. I can almost hear the shouting starting already.
