I finally got in touch with SOURCE about all the wild rumors about Cynthia Bailey’s bridal shower in Charleston, South Carolina. This seasons peaches are: Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, Drew Sidora, and LaToya Ali. Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam appear as friends. Shamea Morton, Eva Marcille, and Falynn Guobadia appear as recurring guests. All of these people are are expected at Cynthia’s wedding today in Acworth. Nene Leakes was invited, but since she is not being paid to appear, executives believe she will sit this one out.
The greatest expense for Cynthia’s wedding was the PPE and all the testing and precautions. It’s been a logistical nightmare for production. And it is pouring rain in Atlanta today. In other news, Kelly Dodd is also getting married today. Housewives seem to make a big deal out of certain dates. Lots of marriages happened on 11/11/11.
The Bridal Shower In Charleston
And now for the Stripper Scandal. The Charleston trip was a pivotal point to the season. Kandi, Cynthia, Porsha, Kenya, Drew, LaToya, Marlo, Tanya, Shamea and Falynn all flew in on a private plane. ( Edit: As it turns out on Kenya and Latoya and Brooklyn took a plane. The others were on one of those buses.)The stripper “B.O.L.O. The Entertainer” was invited by Kandi, as he previously worked a few dates from her Dungeon tour a couple years ago.
According to producers, Kenya, Kandi, and Porsha egged him on big time. He turned up the heat and began “straddling” and grinding on Porsha and LaToya specifically. He seemed have some attraction towards those two. Cameras had to go down and reposition after the scene – and that’s when the alleged activity got a bit blurred.
Reportedly, it was B.O.L.O. who stated he wanted a piece of Porsha, something that wasn’t caught because he did not have a microphone on. When they were talking Kenya Moore alerted producers to it and cameras positioned and the friendly banter stopped.
It Should Not Come As A Shock That Kenya Stirred The Pot
And then cameras went down for the night and that is when the sex that Kenya is alleging supposedly happened. But there is REALITY and then there is storyline.
The reality is that Tanya wasn’t involved. LaToya didn’t see anything. Tanya is about to send Kenya a cease and desist. But the story being pushed right now (mainly by Kenya) is that Porsha and Tanya were involved, LaToya was the one that saw it, she ran back and told Kenya. Then, Kenya confronted Porsha and Tanya the next day with the allegations. Causing a scene and further dividing the group.
Production is a bit concerned because this season was on a more civilized, luxurious trajectory and this could take the show right back into the gutter. That is pretty much the gist of it. It’ll be pieced together much better for entertainment’s sake and the headlines as well to make it dramatic but it’s essentially hearsay. I’m not doubting Porsha had sex with him, I’m just saying there is no concrete audio/video evidence of it.
And that is the tea from my source. We now return to the really bad weather/tornado watch already in progress here in the ATL.
UPDATE! Somehow Cynthia’s wedding went on as scheduled despite all the horrific rain storms and tornados. Below are a few photos. But none of Cynthia’s wedding dress because it was pretty horrendous. Almost as bad as Eva’s hairstyle. All any of my sources who were there could talk about is how smoking hot Drew’s husband is. He was literally all anyone wanted to talk about.
