Happy Easter, y’all! I just this second waddled in the door a bit behind schedule. I’m overfed, over-stimulated and overly exhausted. I am not super excited about this RHOA Reunion Recap so I am going to try my best to keep it short. We all want to know what happened in the closet. And I highly doubt we will get the full story. Nonetheless, let’s get the RHOA Reunion over with!
What Happened In The Closet?
The good news is that Andy is getting right to the whole #Closetgate situation. He asks Porsha what happened with her belt. Then Nene tries to squash the whole conversation. Andy reads a view question about her getting violent on camera. Nene said she was not bothered by putting hands on people. The only thing that she regrets is “all the cursing.”
Nene said all she did was tear a guys shirt. Porsha points out that she CHOKED another guy and scratched him up and he was taken to the hospital! Apparently, she dragged the guy’s head against the wall and knocked his tooth out. Nene says “his tooth got chipped,” Why don’t we have footage of all this?
You’re Such A Fucking Liar
Marlo claims to not remember telling Nene to get off Porsha because she’s pregnant. Her exact words were. “She pregnant! You can’t push her! Porsha says Nene put her hand on her back and pushed her forward. At that point her belt to her dress also came flying off. The replay the footage of Porsha screaming in the closet. We see Porsha coming out of the closet fixing her dress. Nene screams, “Let me tell y’all something. I will fuck you up.” At that point she seemed to be talking to production. Then Nene choked the second producer.
Kandi Burruss and Porsha Left Nene’s House To Get Away From The Violence
But they are not going to fire her ass? So the female showrunner from last season is quitting. The Bravo suits think they just have to have Nene Leakes. It’s mindblowing. And Kenya Moore is difficult to work with? Please.
After everyone came out of the closet, Kandi saw Nene attacking a producer. Kandi and Porsha went down the stairs and requested they remove their microphones because they were leaving. Nene came storming downstairs and continued her rampage. Porsha called the house after she was safely in a car going home and someone answered the phone but didn’t speak. She could here Nene screaming threats about Porsha and Kandi in the background.
When it comes time to play Eva’s package, we don’t even see wedding footage! All we see is people trash talking Eva’s finances. Andy asks all sorts of personal questions about her finances. Why is this necessary. Eva explains that she made $40K off of one IG post. Marlo mutters she need to get that gig. No one wants a violent felon as their spokes person Marlo. You are going to have to stick to tricking.
Eva explains that her bitch of a bridesmaid nicked her driver’s license to get her address and publicized it. That is way she had to move at the end of her lease and not extend it through the end of the year. She doesn’t tell anyone her actual address because she doesn’t want the psychotic, violent donor showing up where she lives.
Eva’s Ex Was Recently Arrested For Felony Domestic Violence
Recently, the donor, Kevin McCall was arrested again for felony domestic violence. (see last half of that post). Eva spoke about it on Dish Nation on Friday. He was extremely abusive to her. The final straw was the last time he attacked her while she was holding the baby. She got a five-year restraining order. Those are very hard to get. It expired shortly after the reunion was taped and she’s been terrified. She’s really hoping he will do some serious time this time. I can’t believe how shitty they treat Eva. It’s infuriating.
Nene says she feels betrayed by Cynthia Bailey. Please. She just said she didn’t care if Kenya Moore came to Cynthia’s event or not. Porsha, Cynthia and Kandi all want Kenya back next season. But that is all up to production. And my exclusive source tells me that if they offer Kenya a friend contract it will likely be less than the one she turned down last year that Kenya refused. They are going to offer her crumbs if they offer anything at all.
If Nene was not coming back, they could afford to pay Kenya. But, Nene and Kandi both have sky-high salaries just under a million dollars PER EPISODE. So everyone else is working for considerably less. Cynthia Bailey’s contract is being negotiated for next season and she may also be given a pay cut. It’s ridiculous. Because RHOA was the first really successful franchise, the lost their minds regarding paying the originals. Kenya was one of the last ones to get in on the big bucks. The new people are making pennies on those dollars. They just can’t afford it anymore.
Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey
I can’t with these two screaming back and forth. When the cut to commercial, Porsha asks Cynthia if she is okay. She says “It’s just not enough money.” Well baby girl, I’m afraid the new contract will be even less. You need to follow Kenya’s lead and not take it and move to LA and be with your man. It’s not worth all of this.
Finally, Cynthia says in the end, she has been through a lot with Nene. She has been a supportive friend. It has not been easy because Nene is not an easy person to be friends with. Then,Nene rolls her eyes and say, “Oh Gawd, that damn Nene is sumpin’ it en she…” At the end of the day, Cynthia is no longer to stress herself out over things that interfere with her peace. Nene continues not to respond to Andy’s questions.
Kandi And Porsha
Porsha’s three episode spinoff starts next week. That is another thing that has Nene all bothered. Porsha and Kandi make their current relationship status clear. First, Kandi says they are in a better place. Then, Porsha has beef with some of her people who work for her and she is never going to turn on her group. Porsha says once she has the baby she will start coming to Kandi’s events. She simply chose during her pregnancy to avoid situations that could effect her positive energy during pregnancy. So, I think these two will be fine.
In the end, some silly fortunes were passed out. Porsha led a prayer for her baby at Andy Cohen’s request. Wow. Porsha Williams knows how to give a prayer. I’m bawling out all the stresses of the day. That was pretty impressive. Nene is unmoved.
Then, they play a promo for Porsha’s show. Did I just see Kenya Moore is on it? So, that’s why Nene is so pissed off? It actually looks really good! I’ll be watching and recapping!
Clearly I think Eva Marcille was best dressed and just drop dead gorgeous on this reunion. What was your favorite look? Thanks for suffering through all three episodes with me.
