We began last night where the show ended last week with Carole telling bossman Andy ” He was full of Shit” for saying that Carole and Bethenny trashed each other the entire season.
Nearly half of the episode was the Bethenny and Carole feud, it was endless and ruined the reunion, at this point I’m on team “can’t give two shits”. If you need details of their bickering, stop here and read another review. I can’t!
Sonja Tremont Morgan
For most of this season I thought there was something different about Sonja. We love her ditzy gentleness. But there was something different. While she didn’t seem to get much screen time but she seemed insightful and sometime brilliant in her confessionals.
Yes, I said it! Sonja Tremont Morgan. Last night we learned that she has (I’m not fully clear about this) had some spiritual cleansing? (again, I’m not sure). She has cut back on the drinking and she seems clearer, more so than ever before.
The spiraling Sonja has found her footing. She has rented her townhouse, moved into a small apartment and for the first time she seems to have direction. Bravo, didn’t let us see her move out of her townhouse, we weren’t privy to her personal successes, shame.
Bethenny said she regretted calling Dorinda a drunk, which moved Dorinda to tears. Carole said that she regretted failing in her attempt to remain cordial with Bethenny. She didn’t regret calling Andy “full of shit’. Ramona and Sonja made up, a bit.
Let’s Not Talk About Bethenny
The real housewives of New York survived the dreaded season 10 Housewives curse. At its worst, New York is the platinum franchise. The disintegration of the friendship between Bethenny and Carole was sad and dominated the season but destroyed the reunion. The resentment towards Bethenny by half of her cast mates was clear and with merit. No one can take away her heroic efforts in Puerto Rico.
At beginning of the reunion, some of her cast mates accused Bethenny of “only doing things for the cameras”. Carole has written about it on social media. On the reunion,we see montage of Ramona attacking Bethenny ,what we don’t see are images of Bethenny attacking Ramona. In fact ,we rarely see images of Bethenny attacking cast members,no one has a deadlier sword than Bethenny. What we see is a regretful apologetic Bethenny, who has sliced and diced nearly every cast member since her return. I am a huge fan of Bethenny Frankle, I love her intelligence and humor. The producers of #RHONY seem to project a positive image of Bethenny, perhaps to protect her brand. I believe the producers have created a wedge between Bethenny and her castmates which in the long term could ultimately damage the show.
It’s Lu Baby!
This season, I believe Luann had the most compelling story line from beginning to end. We saw her at lowest and we saw her comeback. I thought the conflict between Dorinda and Luann was far more layered than Bethenny and Carole. Her absence was notable. Luann’s story has captured our hearts.. Make some room, its Lu baby!
I will miss Carole, she was a formidable presence. We didn’t see enough of Ramona this season, the same was true for Dorinda. I’m on the fence with Tinsley, she doesn’t have a storyline and she doesn’t hurt the show. I suspect there is something there, its deep, dark and bubbling Drip, Drip, EXPLOSION!!!
See Ya next season….thanks for following.
recommendation: Catch this season of “Married to Medicine” and Binge watch Last Season of Married to Medicine.
Part two of the RHONY reunion was much like part one. The Bethenny pile on continued however, I felt less sorry for Bethenny.
The night began with Dorinda’s drinking. Is she a drunk or isnt she? Dorinda said she wasn’t drunk during her heated exchanged at dinner with Luann in Cartagena. She also she wasn’t really drunk at other events including when she stabbed her hand at dinner. Bethenny and Luann had mentioned Dorinda drinking however it seems that Bethenny backed down a bit and with Luann being in rehap, I guess we will never know.
For TV, Dorinda drunken rants are funny. In the real world, her drunken antics is cruel, if your are the victim . Right Sonja? Who said: Dorinda told her she can’t say anything because she’s always drunk: “Yeah, but I don’t get drunk and insult my friends’ vaginas.” W eve seen Sonja drunk out of her mind, but she doesn’t t attack anyone.
We did learn from Bethenny that she was part of an intervention with Luann which included her boyfriend Dennis Shields who has since died of an overdose. We also learned from Bethenny and Andy that a lawsuit filed by Luann’s ex husband and her kids was one of the reasons for her drinking. Ramona, Carole, and the other housewives have seen her drink. Ramona says she has been tossed out of a few establishments.
The Skinny: Her Ex and her kids suing Luann
Luann is being sued by her first husband Alexander De Lesseps and her children Victoria and Noel. Part of the divorce settlement, required Luann to set up a trust for her two children. Luann received the home in the Hampton’s, half of the home belonged to the children. Luann sold the home in November of 2014 for eight million. and used that money to purchase another home. No trust was ever set up.
Luann, and your friends say….
Luann’s show is a bonafide hit! Bethenny and Dorinda said that Luann was feeling herself a little bit after the success of the show. (sounds a little snarky-wouldn’t a real friend just say “Hey, I’m really proud of my friend) They said, Luann ,let her ego go out of control because she felt like her trouble with the law made her even more famous. Dorinda said Luann “confused fame with infamy.”
“Say it forget it! Write it Regret it!”
Say it again, say it again, SAY IT AGAIN! So many tedious fights on Social Media begin an end with a tweet, message, or a blog posting. Not just on TV but in our every day life. I imagine for some people it is easier to vent via social media then it is to make a simple phone call. I am sure, producers encourage cast mates to vent on social media.
I wanted the friendship between Bethenny and Carole to mend. Today I’m like a lot of viewers I’m over it. It was a roller coaster ride, I was strongly #TeamBethenny but I started to turn after watching Bethenny talk about Carole with the other women, pretending Carole wasn’t there. Then I invested in the tweeter rants (yes, I need a life). Initially, was Bethenny sending out the tweets. (Again this may have ended after an extended phone call) Then Carole starting tweeting, her tweets we brutal, hard hitting.
Wednesday, night, Carole attempted to take the high road. Every time Carole tried to talk. Bethenny interrupted her. Then Carole snapped, she went off on Bossman (Andy) Telling him, he was full of shit.
Both ladies had receipts, pages and pages of receipts. Who said what when to whom? Like most long term fights, when Andy asked them what caused this rift and neither of them knew.
The season was good, but the reunion has sucked so far?
Sonja Tremont Morgan looks good. Word on the street, say’s she’s been re-freshed
This is tenth reunion of Bravos second oldest Housewives franchise. After a little research, I think I know the secret sauce that makes New York superior to the other cities, it’s continuity.
Vicki Gunvalson is the grand dame of all the Housewives franchises. She has been with Orange County since the beginning. However, her other cast mates haven’t been there as nearly as long as she has.
In New York, most of the ladies know each other through a mutual friends. At last nights reunion, we learned that all the women (with the exception of Tinsley) knew the first seasons cast member Jill Zaran. Most have known her for more than 10 years.
In New York, Ramona Singer is the grand dame, she has be a full cast member for the run of the show. Luann has also been a cast member for 10 years, however by the sixth season she was demoted as a friend of the show. she was reinstated to full time status by the seventh season. Bethenny Frankle, left the show at the end of the third season and returned the seventh season. As for the rest of the cast, Sonja Morgan seven seasons, Carole Radizell six, Dorinda Medley three and Tinsely Mortimer two. These women are connected by way of mutual friends and New York’s social scene, this is their secret sauce. Only three cast members in Orange County have appeared longer than two years.
When a new housewife comes on board, she and her cast mates often spends a season or several seasons adjusting to each other, it makes good dramatic TV but it takes time for the personalities to Jell. This season, Orange County has added two cast members, they don’t seem to have any connection with the other castmates.
In many ways this group of women in New York is like family. You may love them all of the time, but you make not like them most of the time and there are some you just cant stand at anytime, but tolerate during holidays and special events. Like family, the alliances change. One year you cant stand your brother and three years later, your good freinds.
For years, Sonja and Ramona were insperatble, this year they aren’t speaking. Luann and Bethenny was at the center of some of #RHONY’s biggest fights,
this year they have grown close. Bethenny and Carole are out, as is Dorinda and Luann, Carole and Luann rarely spoke for a few years and today they are building a friendship.
Part One of Season 10 #RHONY Reunion
Most of the housewives came to war in gold. With Dorinda and Sonja looking the best. Sonja took a page from Bethenny’s book and wore the dress she designed. $179
Missing from the battlefield was Luann ,who was in Rehab at the time of filming.
Andy seem like he was in a mood, and that may help set the tone for the evening. Carole’s phone went off an he was in attack mode. The first half of the reunion is the typical boring shit. How’s your hair, you look good. A look back, blah, blah blah!
One thing that is very clear at this Reunion is there is a lot of anger and resentment. Most of it directed towards Bethenny. The Ramona and Bethenny relationship is long an deep.
Full disclousure: I am a BIG fan of Bethenny Frankle, she is very intellegent, extremely funny, and at times a neroutic mess.
Bethenny is the golden housewife, who we witnessed start with nothing and built an empire. We’ve seen her raw, and very emotional. However, we have seen a real mean ,nasty dismissive Bethenny. We’ve seen Bethenny slice and dice many housewives especially, Luann, Sonja and Ramona. Ramona is no match for Bethenny’s ginsu tounge. Last week, when Ramona attempted to confront Bethenny at Luann’s after party. Bethenny shut her completey down and she has done this before.
Ramona, has more to say at last nights reunion than she did all season. Intinally I thought it was jealousy. But when you listen to her go on an don about her acomplishment and how she put herself through school, while Bethenny’s rich father paid for her schooling. I think Ramona want some acknowlegement about the things she’s accomplished.
When the season began, ten years ago, Ramona had made her mark on her own. She unlike Bethenny who was stuggling to get Skinnygirl off the ground had made her own money. She didn’t want to depend on a man! So when Bethenny highlights and dismisses Ramona’s and failures, this is personal, especially when Bethenny doesn’t acknowledge her own businesss failures, that some of her castmates reminded her of.
Ramona, says Bethenny doesn’t support other women . At one point Ramona reminded Bethenny criticized Sonja for having fake businesses. Bethenny said, she never criticized Sonja. (where was the tape?) this set Ramona off. “Oh my god, I can’t take her lies. I may walk off for her lie,”
“The Bethenny Pile On”
It’s tough being Queen. Just ask, Nene Leakes, Vicky Gunvalson Lisa Vanderpump and one of my new favorites Leeann Locken from Dallas.
Last night, Dorinda, Ramona and Carole, came for Bethenny.
Last night, plugged in the wayback machine and in it. we saw how through the years Ramona has been beyond nasty to my gurl Bethenny. We also saw the nuturing side of Bethenny, how she comforted and knew the right things to say to the housewives. What we didn’t see was her negatives, her attacks. She called Dorinda a drunk. She was a horror to Ramona a few weeks ago and seems to save her rage for Carole on social media and the two former besties were in a raging battle online.
They accused Bethenny of doing things for the Camera, including meeting with Jill Zarin at her husbands funeral. Carole has questioned her motives in Puerto Rico. All alone (Ramona actully covered Sonja’s mouth when she tried to come to Bethenny’s aid) Andy reminded the women that Jill asked for the cameras to come in and that they were on a Reality TV show so filming is part of what they do.
Bethenny could have used Luann .
???? Do the Queen’s get preferential treatment? See you next week(PLEASE comment in the comment section, we love to hear your thoughts? ) CityFella
Lawd have mercy, Lawd have mercy, LAWD HAVE MUR-CEE!! This effing rapegate may FINALLY BE OVAH! Between Kandi and Porsha. I think after one apologies this one my have stuck.
Speaking of stuck, Bravo has stuck us with this lame reunion. They are holding some of us captive, until next week when we finally see Nene and Wig go at it… And fuck! (yeah I said it) it better be Epic!
This reunion much like this season has been much to do about Nothing. Speaking of nothing why is Marlo still here? Marlo doesn’t appreciate, Kenya calling her a HO. (not a garden tool) When Andy, (who I might add is keeping this reunion afloat with his own shade) ask Marlo how does she make her money? She tells Andy, she dated a billionaire. Who is not Ted Turner. The billionaire, bought her home and her mothers home and her Aston Martin. And she has a LLC ” Simply Marlo”. Kenya! “We see each other”
Andy asked Nene about her epic breakdown in Oakland. (Telling a heckler-she hoped she would get raped by a Uber driver) Nene seemed sincerely sorry. Sheree was offended. Next.
Eva, came out having contractions. (Dr Jackie is on call) She and Cynthia had a few moments regarding Will. Was he seeing someone the same time as he was seeing Cynthia? Of course this is one more example of this stupid season. Cynthia and Will weren’t anything to each other, so WHO CARES IF HE WAS DATING ANOTHER WOMEN!!!!!
Cynthia has moved on and is seeing someone else. Shady Andy suggested that Cynthia explore her clear attraction to women.
Bravo played us!
It was all a tease. The sit down with Wig (Kim to her friends) was saved for the last few minutes of last night’s episode.
Nene’s back was erect. She came out looking good in a red dress and her red solo cup (Houston is there a problem?)
Andy, an equal opportunity shade master asked her “What the end game on the lip” (This destroyed twitter)
They began with the Elephant Room . Where Kim told Cynthia to be quiet and look pretty. Kim says she never suggested that Cynthia is lucky she’s beautiful because she’s not capable of much else. The Receipts says your a lier. The footage shows Kim saying that Cynthia is lucky she’s beautiful because she’s not capable of much else.
Another dig from Andy: He compares Kim’s pivoting tendencies to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Then Kim asks, “Who the hell is that?”
A moment with Dr CityFella:I’ve always suspected Nene rage towards Kim is love. Outside of Sheree, Nene has known Kim more than 10 years. It was Nene who suggested Kim come on to the show. and Unlike Sheree, these two had a genuine friendship. Nene said, she saw Kim at the mall and she believes Kim saw her and didn’t acknowledge her. The Elephant room was another attempt to patch the hole in there friendship.
Kim, insist she never say Nene at the mall. or took a photo of her car in the handicapped Then we see the footage of her doing what she said she didn’t do. Bleep, Bleep, Bleep,
Southern Charm “New Orleans” Premiered after the Housewives has promise. The Real Housewives of the Potomac, looks good this season. Beverly Hills has one more episode before the Reunion and its about to go down at the Hampton’s in New York (read my review) Bravo is going to have overhaul Atlanta, we deserve better.!
Its nearly two weeks since the airing of part four of the reunion and people are still talking about what executive producer Andy Cohen called the Megawatt Lie. While Bravo still haven’t officially announced her status, Cohen recently told “E” Parks, co-stars had no desire to film alongside her ever again. Which basically says, No Gurl ,you wont be back! Parks maintain she was set up by the producers. Could she be telling the truth?
People are STILL SQUAKING about the ATL Ladies
Earlier Today, Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County #RHOCO took to Facebook to share her thoughts about The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 reunion drama involving her fellow Bravo star Phaedra Parks. “When you make up a lie about a cast mate (or husband) and try to destroy their character & reputation, YOU SHOULD BE FIRED,”
Bethenny Frankel, from the Real Housewives of New York #RHONY talked to US Magazine and said the reunion “made her feel dirty” “It was disgusting,” ““I don’t think Phaedra can bounce back from that,” Frankel concluded of the drama.
Frankel disagrees with Parks
She tells “E” “I’ve been doing this for 10 years,”“I actually, sadly, consider myself to be a veteran. The producers do not make you do these things at all.” “The producers don’t know exactly what’s going on, so they might say, ‘Are you going to talk to Kandi about this?’ They don’t know,” Bethenny insists producers would never plant a lie on the Housewives; saying the drama is real.
A Parks source said there was “a producer who told her the drug and rape story, which she repeated to another cast member. It snowballed. The editing was not kind to her.”
Sources close to the ex-Housewife told TMZ she’s mad as hell, because she claims a producer gave her the B.S. story she told to Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss — the whole drugging and raping thing.
The producer didn’t necessarily tell her to repeat it with cameras rolling, but we’re told Phaedra explained the producer’s role during the reunion show. She’s also angry because that was edited out of the reunion to make it look like she acted alone.
We’re told the way Phaedra sees it, she was fired in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus. We’re told Phaedra insists the ‘Housewives’ crew knows she’s not the source of the lie. Sources said , she said she outted the producers and it was cut from the show. They’re not allowed to break the ‘fourth wall’ and talk about production. It may not have been entirely Phaedra’s fault, but she has to take the fall,” the source said.
Is the producer Carlos King? If so,what was his motive?
There are many rumors circling the Former Real Housewives of Atlanta producer Carlos King. Yes, like Parks, King will not return for season 10.
Carlos King insist’s he wasn’t fired He says his production company, Kingdom Reign, signed a production deal with ITV in November of last year and that he told the cast in January that he was leaving.
Edited: From Tamera Tattles (3/17/17)
I’m told it went down like this. Kandi came hard for Porsha. So Porsha rolled over on Phaedra admitting that everything she said was told to her by Phaedra. Phaedra blamed Carlos. She said Carlos told her all the stuff about the sex dungeon and “Marvin.”
If you are like me, at this point in the story you are thinking, “Wouldn’t Phaedra know more of Kandi’s personal information that Carlos King?” I am only reporting what I am told. So Carlos was behind the entire storyline against Kandi. I’m not surprised. But I am sure that Phaedra was more than willing to take that storyline and run with it.
Basically, Andy’s reaction about “stuff coming out” was about Phaedra basically admitting she set Porsha up with the lies to tell on Kandi. Again, THIS IS NOT NEWS TO US! HOW IS THIS NEWS TO ANDY? But apparently it was. Phaedra has always been Andy’s favorite RHOA. This time he finally went hard on Phaedra and told her she knew exactly what she was doing when she feed dumb old Porsha the information. .
In the end, Phaedra got the really bad edit as a liar and a shit stirrer. It’s about time. But again, this is not shocking to anyone but Andy. I wondered if all the mentions of Carlos would be aired and a source said that it would probably be edited to say “a producer.”
From Bossip: “Our sources also say that Phaedra tried to blame the lesbian & date rape lie she fed Porsha Williams on producer Carlos King,” wrote B. Scott.”Which might have something to do with why he won’t be back to work on the show next year.” (4/10/17)
Sheree Whitfield has had an issue with Mr King. In 2015, Ms Whitfield told the press she was “duped” by Carlos King. At the time she was a friend and thought she would receive her “Peach” following the departure of Nene Leakes in a backroom deal she brokered with shows former producer Carlos King. She learned she would only appear in some of the episode in season 8. She didn’t learn this until after production. According to a source, Whitfield met with the reality show producer earlier this year (2015)and pitched him a concept – a show about African-American real estate agents in Atlanta.
When Whitfield departed from the show three years ago she went on to get her real estate license and had been selling properties since.She wanted to be featured in the new show along with several other women she knew were also having success in the world of real estate and believed King could help her sell the show to a network.
‘Without telling Sheree, Carlos started pitching the show to networks and WE TV became interested,’ claims the source. He sold them the concept without Sheree’s involvement and then had to go back to her with a make-good once he did.
Is Carlos King “The Streets” and is there Bad Blood With Todd Tucker?
Is Phaedra telling the truth? Is a producer? Could it be Revenge? When I think of it? It was odd that Todd Tucker remained on stage through part 4. Normally the husbands have a segment on the reunion show and then are dismissed however, Todd remained. Perhaps Todd suspected King was involved.
(Edited) From Straight from the A (3/19/2017) Todd and Carlos were once partners in TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” Produced by Tuckers’ TTucker Productions and King’s Kingdom Reign Entertainment.
Todd and Carlos were partners in “Hollywood Divas “their business relationship soured because they couldn’t see eye to eye about how to handle production and the two lost a lot of money. Tucker and King are reportedly aren’t on speaking terms.
Kandi unhappy with King
Carlos King is working on an Xscape documentary with Jermaine Dupri. Word on the curb is that Kandi had no clue about the project and was actually planning one of her own prior to finding out.
Apparently Kandi doesn’t own any rights to Xscape or their music but Jermaine does and Dupri has been working with King to produce it. Needless to say, Kandi was apparently livid about the news and felt that Carlos intentionally deceived her. The trio have been at odds ever since.
Kandi and her reunited girl group Xscape have been working with Mona Scott Young (Carlos King’s former boss who fired him from LHHATL). It seems that Carlos was trying to get the jump on Mona and he succeeded by going straight to Jermaine!
I was also told that Carlos interviewed Mama Joyce for information about Xscape but at the time he did, Kandi had no idea that it was for the project with Jermaine.

Porsha, missed an opportunity to drag Phaedra Parks ass across the stage out the building and down the block. It would have been sanctioned by Andy Cohen and all the housewives as Phaedra told the BIGGEST MOST HEINOUS LIE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL THE HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISES!
Now there have been various housewives lies about ,home ownership, random lies about people places and things, having cancer, and our favorite, fidelity. BUT, no one to my knowledge ,in any of the franchisees have told a lie that could not only damage their brand and reputation, but a lie that could send a housewife and her husband to jail.
Bravo made us wait for this drama. This all could have fit in a two part reunion, but four? Let’s hope this isn’t a trend. Having said that I enjoyed nearly every minute. I especially loved that they allowed us to follow the housewives behind the scenes.
In part three, the world learned Phaedra was the source of the ” Kandi and Todd planned to drug and kidnap, Porsha to have sex with her” Phaedra told Porsha, Kandi confirmed the story. Phaedra was also the source of the “Marvin” story. (Todd was telling random women in New York his name was Marvin) Phaedra was stoic as her girlfriend was falling apart. Well, seemingly falling apart, we saw the tissue, we didn’t see the tears. Not lost on Kenya and Todd.
“You know damn well the day you told me that, two days before I sat with Kandi, you said she told you firsthand! Then two days ago we talked on the phone and you told me that she said it firsthand. Now, what I’m not gonna do is go back in text messages and reveal that, because we don’t need no motherfucking receipts.” (Porsha Williams)
(Porsha off the sofa)
Porsha, found a few tears and begged for her sister Lauren. Meanwhile, while she was waiting for her sis, Shamea comes in, not to tell her, she told her so about Phaedra, but basically she did just that (tell her so). Meanwhile her sister comes in and was genuinely surprised to here what Phaedra said.
Kandi, Cynthia, Sheree Todd and Andy (off the sofa)
Todd reminds his wife she’s been vindicated. For Kandi the pain and the rage was there. She talks about people hash tagging #KandiAKABillCosby under her business’ photos. Cynthia and Sheree are confused and in shock! Cynthia say’s she has never seen anything like it! The three housewives talk in the ladies room, Andy joins them as to check the temperature, he is also in shock!
Kenya Please! (off the sofa)
Kenya is on the phone with her friends Brandon. She has never evah, liked Porsha and wanted a friendship with Phaedra until Phaedra turned. Now is off with their heads, she wants them both fired!
Phaedra (off the sofa)
Okay, I’m gonna give Phaedra one. While she is surrounded by emotional chaos ,caused by her, we see her calmly being groom. Bad and mean editing 3Bravo!.
Porsha (on the sofa)
Her buddy, threw her under the bus and Phaedra, didn’t look a bit more bothered, of course until she was busted. However, when Andy asked her why would she believe Kandi and Todd would drug her and take her back to their house? she replied, “this is what I was told”
But I don’t have pity for Porsha. Phaedra supplied her with the bullets, but it was Porsha who pulled the trigger. She had ample opportunity to contact Kandi, a person she called a good friend, to verify the story. Porsha isn’t dumb, anyone who has seen her on the Celebrity Apprentice can attest to that. So Porsha, your no innocent. Porsha, apologized to her old friend, but that fell on to closed ears. it was wayy too late!
Kandi, Cynthia, Kenya, Sheree and Todd (on the sofa)
There were few words. Kandi said she was numb. Kandi said she would have never done that to Phaedra. With regard to her ex employee Johnny, who’s attorney is suing her for over $168,000. Kandi said, she wouldn’t sit down on television and speak with Angela Stanton, the woman who wrote the tell-all book about Phaedra.
Phaedra could have let her faith allow her to come clean in her restoration services, but the holy and ghost wasn’t with her. Phaedra had several opportunities in Hawaii to come clean, Phaedra enjoyed her Champagne instead.
Andy and Phaedra (on the sofa)
Andy gave Phaedra a lifeline. Phaedra pushed it away. ” You know I made a rash decision.” He asked Phaedra if she was mad at Kandi? She says no. At first it was something she was told. When Andy asked Porsha she say’s Phaedra was adamant she understand she heard Kandi say she wanted to drug her firsthand. Then Phaedra changed,“I was repeating something. I shouldn’t have repeated it.” Then she gives the Shaedra apology, I’m sorry! I’m Sorry! Phaedra was cold and emotionless
Put a big ass fork in Andy, he’s done!
I listen to Radio Andy on SiriusXM. Phaedra Parks was one of his early guest when the show launched in 2015. The two have a history which predates the housewives. He was done last night. In the last few minutes, after giving Phaedra every opportunities to help herself, she tells her, “You got caught in a pretty megawatt lie. I don’t know that you’ve completely copped to it…”
Andy says it’s impossible to tell what she’s feeling, and Phaedra says,
“All I can do is apologize. I can’t change that it happened.”
Typically there are hugs after a reunion and what did you learn from the season?
Last night, there were no group hugs in Atlanta. No what you learned from the season? Only a cake for Cynthia Bailey’s 50th and forced smiles.
It took two long hours to get tonight and Damm it was Good! GOOD!!!
Couples Update and Peter
It is very clear to me Bob Whitfield would rather be at a day care at a day care facility hand washing diapers ,than to be on the show last night. He apologized to Sheree for his violent words when they were married. “I made myself the man and kept her behind me,” he said, “when I should have had her beside me.” Neither he and Sheree have talked to their children about the violence in their relationship. Cast members like him and was surprised to see that side of him. Peter said, if he didn’t know Bob,he would have punched him.
Andy asked Todd, his impressions of Riley’s bio dad, Block. Todd said, he initially thought Block was full of shit but Block is keeping his word and meeting with Riley.
I’ve always thought that Peter Thomas was closest to Nene when it comes to his no nonsense attitude and his love for his wife Cynthia. Last night, Peter was sad and angry.
When Andy asked Peter and Cynthia if they were dating. Cynthia said she dated someone and quickly downplayed the dating. Peter on the other hand was fronting big time. He said there was someone he liked a lot. If you looked close you saw man who’s heart was broken with tears in his eyes and despite his words he said he will ALWAYS love Cynthia.
Peter had nothing but rage toward Porsha and Phaedra. Porsha has long accused Peter of having affairs. A one point Peter, talked over Andy Cohen, and asked why was Todd not there and insisted he be there ! Then he went after Phaedra. Do you have the whole package? A husband and a family? No, Phaedra replied. Life is full of disappointments baby! Peter abruptly left the stage as he exited he said “Phaedra and Porsha are full of shit”
Bones and the Bone Carrier
Sheree has clearly earned her peach back and relishes her role as the bone carrier. Sheree keeps the ladies real, at the end of the day, their gonna see/hear what happens. The ladies rarely question Sheree.
Ladies and Gentleman, introducing Shamea Morton to the reunion sofa
Shamea Morton has Phaedra to thank for her appearance as she suggested that Shamea Kandi and Todd was having an affair. Shamea was Porsha’s best friend and Kandi’s friend however that relationship slowed when Porsha became friends with Phaedra.
Shamea went hard on Phaedra. She called Phaedra a Southern belle today and hooker tomorrow,” and told Porsha dont leave your credit card and Id because is into fraudulent activity (the crime Phaedra’s ex in prison for) and to stop using Groupon for her plastic surgery’
The big question is why did Phaedra let her good friend Porsha take the fall for her mess?
They brought Todd back to confirm Porsha’s coming on to Kandi. There were two kisses between Kandi and Porsha asked if they would go back to her hotel. Todd said Kandi (who was sober) declined and said it wasn’t a good idea.
Needing clarity, Andy wanted to know why Phaedra said Kandi and Shamea was sleeping together. Phaedra said, because they were close. When asked if she and Porsha were sleeping together or if she and Kandi were sleeping together because they were once were close, Phaedra said no. In a sad desperate attempt. Phaedra asked all the ladies if they heard the rumors, they all including Porsha said no.
Porsha’s Memory Lapse
At one point Andy addresses an open letter written to him from the Huffington Post about the homophobic way this show deals with these women accusing each other of being lesbians all the time. Porsha says she is not homophobic, she supports Gays etc, etc, etc, Someone reminds her of an anti gay statement she made a few years ago
Andy asked, why would Porsha say Kandi and Todd tried to drug her?
Porsha gave us one when she said she is in the world of Journalism.
She reports on the news and they like to make sure it’s accurate.”
Porsha joins the ranks of Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer.
Why did she say that about Kandi?
“I was served a Cease and Desist by Kandi,” she Porsha said, “What I want to do is have Phaedra speak, because she’s the one who told me Kandi said that.”
