This week on Claudia’s Bravo Blog, she recounts the “read heard ’round the world” play by play. She makes it perfectly clear who started the conflict and who ended it. It’s a marvelous little blog entry. What I fail to understand is what the hell went on with Demetria during filming. I kept hearing that Demetria was not fitting in with the other women, but it seems to me, at least in this early part of filming, that Team Pretty welcomed Demetria with open arms. Team Beast, is not really a team at all at this point, just three outcasts thrust together under the old, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” rule. Demetria is also the housewife chosen as the hostess for both the trip to Puerto Rico and the trip to Singapore. Singapore was done very late in filming. If she had already lost her peach, why would the ladies be going on a trip hosted by an FOH. It’s all very weird to me.
I know my spoilers and exclusives were confusing at the time filming was happening and I am anxious to see if I can determine from the all the behind the scenes tea how things really went down with all the peach juggling. It still would not surprise me to see Nene without a peach by show’s end. She walked out of several scenes, as did Phaedra toward the end of filming because both were unhappy with their storylines and were avoiding talking about things they were told to talk about. I suppose time will tell.
Anyway, on to Claudia’s blog:
Then the peanut gallery of NeNe and Porsha didn’t make things better high fiving each other, having side bar conversations that were not quiet, being disrespectful with little jabs towards Demetria, and a bunch of other very childish and passive aggressive behavior. I was shocked! It wasn’t my argument, but I was still appalled. These are for the most part middle aged women acting like high school mean girls. At one point I interjected, “Do you guys want to resolve this or not?” And then all hell broke loose! I didn’t attack nor “come for NeNe.” But she certainly saw an in to start a fight with me by insulting me with, “Oh you have a brain?” Rude, rude, rude. All I was trying to do was get us back on track to squash it, not inflame it. But perhaps Miss Rich Bitch was feeling some type of way that the attention wasn’t on her, but instead was on the newbie Demetria and her new BFF (whom she didn’t remember going to school with) Phaedra Parks. Wow…so much can happen in a year. Yay for new bestie!
OK, what transpired after that comment was what many call a “read,” but for me it was just responding to a mean, rude, obnoxious bully that has for too long run rampant with that mouth and childish, ignorant behavior that needed to be checked. That ego is as big as those veneers, and quite frankly I was over it! I had tried to be cordial with this woman already, and the last time we saw each other we were OK (not besties, but dammit I thought there was no beef). But this clearly is par for the course for Linnethia or however you spell her damn name! She was acting as is she were bipolar! Pick a personality and stick with it so we all know how to deal or not deal with you. Anyway, I am glad I kept my cool and remained a lady (for the most part) during the argument. I never raised my voice or concerned myself with my adversaries “clit” or “pussy.” That made me uncomfortable, because just a week ago you had only fessed up to meeting me once — NOW you know my fico score, credit report, sexual history, and status of my “clit.” To say this was ODD is a complete understatement. You can’t have it both ways, “NayNay.” I’m glad I stood up for myself and against the rudeness that was directed towards Demetria. Seems some of these ladies could use an etiquette class. Cynthia, hook them up at The Bailey Agency please, and send me the bill for three!
Bravotv.com: Why did you end up going off on NeNe?
CJ: I didn’t go off on NeNe. I simply handled her in the manner that she deserved
and was damn near begging me to. That is with authority, precision, and truth — and I am glad to do it again the next time she behaves like an animal! Grow up, Broadway star! This is not the way a happy, successful, established, and UNBOTHERED lady acts. #GirlBye
