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.
Anyway, they left yesterday on Phaedra’s birthday. But if you recall after Phaedra went on Ellen, it was quite clear that Phaedra can’t stand, Demetria, or Kenya or Claudia or Cynthia. So it will likely be those four on one side and Kandi, Porsha and Phaedra on the other. In fact, that is probably why Porsha was invited. Kandi seems cool with everyone this season and was sitting on the plane with Cynthia as her seatmate. Kandi and Cynthia both donned medical masks due to Ebola fears. So I imagine there will be epic drama in Bali, or whatever their final destination is.
And then there is Nene. Nene has been tweeting about knowing when to get off sinking ships, and removing herself from situations that cause her to cope in unhealthy ways (um…. I immediately thought of her old behavior during #PajamaPartyGate) and how God is good and she is going to be on Broadway in Cinderella with her name in lights. This is type of behavior I have been anticipating as I have repeatedly told you guys that Nene is in a limited role this upcoming season of RHOA. She may or may not be on every episode (which would get her a peach) but most of her scenes are going to be on her own, or with Gregg or Porsha. This whole season is going to be odd. Phaedra stopped filming with the other women for quite a while after the Mr. Chocolate storyline broke. Nene doesn’t want to film with anyone but Porsha really. Phaedra and Nene really only want to film with Porsha and Kandi. Team Pretty (Kenya, Dememtria, Claudia and Cynthia) are likely to be the main group with all the others being satellite characters.
It’s still unclear if Nene was invited on the trip. He tweets are clearly trying really hard to convince us that she is glad to be away from the bitches. I do believe that is true. I’m just not sure it was her choice to make.
