There are a lot of hyperbolic headlines floating around about the RHOA today. Some are true and some are just made up headlines for a really slow news day. Let’s start with Kenya. Kenya is most definitely filming Season 10 of RHOA. They are not going to fire her for getting married. I do not know who starts this stuff, but it’s so ridiculous I can’t believe I have to refute it. Kenya’s husband has never said anything to anyone about the show. Kenya married a real man who is not interested in being on a reality show. He is a NYC businessman and will not be relocating to Atlanta. Does this mean we will never see him on the show? No it doesn’t. It means the show is not a priority for him. He has never said anything at all let alone he doesn’t like how black males are portrayed on the show. I’m sure Kenya will be going back and forth to NYC during breaks in filming, or even with a filming crew as I understand they are looking for a new marital home in NYC. Kenya is likely looking to sell Moore Manor soon. I’m sure we will see him in some capacity. But he is not going to be a Peter, or a Greg or an Apollo. He’s just not that into it.
After Season 10 I think that Kenya and her husband will have a discussion about whether or not she should continue to film RHOA. This all seems perfectly normal to me. There is no story here. It’s a nothing burger.
Next, Phaedra’s offer on her home apparently fell through as the under contract sign has been removed. She has listed it on the open market and it is now on MLS with a list price of $1,499,00. This is almost twice what she paid for it a few years ago and the neighbors feel it is way over priced. The neighbors claim that she has made improvements to the house that were not permitted. I am going to need some help from a Realtor here regarding what the consequence of that is during inspection. The neighbors say once a buyer has an inspection the unpermitted work will be discovered. Then what happens? Can someone explain this to me?
On to Kandi. Xscape fans were losing their minds on Sunday night at the final concert of Essencefest. Best I can determine, tickets to Essencefest are sold as passes that get you into the entire festival. Inside the festival there are pop up shops, bars, restaurants, and multiple performance sites. Some of the folks are listening to speakers or attending mini conferences, some are listening to music performances, some are shopping. The Superdome is the center of all of the hubub.
So when Xscape decided to reunite, they we admitted as performers long after most things had been booked and planned. The venue they were performing was not the main stage, but a lounge sort of connected to the main stage. The attendees apparently overwhelmingly choose to attend the Xscape concert over whatever was on the main stage. They clogged the aisles attempting to get to the show with mobs of people clogging the exit routes. This created a fire hazard and a whole lot of fans were turned away. So the fans are angry at the venue, not the group. Kandi has apologized to the fans and promises to return to New Orleans soon.
That is really all that is going on this week. Oh and all of these names of new people testing to replace Porsha or Cynthia. That is not happening. They test people every season even when there are no spots available so they have a little pool of contenders. If Kenya bids farewell after this season, or any of the returning OGs are done, that is when we will see fresh meat. Things are just now getting ready to start. It’s way to early for all the dramatics.
