The Real Housewives of Atlanta #Rhoa S10 EP1 50 Shade of Cynthia


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta

 

First things first, Nene is back with a hardcore Georgia swagger.  I was mixed about her return, when she shines, there is no housewife like her anywhere.  When the light fades she can turn very dark and bring an episode to its knees and while I’m happy to see her, its still a wait and see.    Last night Nene was vintage Nene and from the  high quality commercials on last night.  Nene deserves every stack of cash Bravo pays her.   All the other housewives in the city’s will just have to hate her!

Atlanta has been suffering of late, the drama was drawn out and last years Kandi, Porsha, Phaedra storyline went on for much too long.  New York is the currently the best franchise, the housewives are older and the issues end after a few episodes and with the drama, the show has humor.    In the ratings  New Jersey is second only to Atlanta and like Atlanta the storylines lumbered on .  This season the ladies are older and this year New Jersey is much improved.    Atlanta’s “OG’s , Nene who is now 49, Kim and Sheree may stabilize Atlanta.   I’m encouraged after last nights episode.

Season ten opened with the crowds at the OLG restaurant.  Kandi ,Todd’s baby is a hit!  The downside of  success is Kandi feels, she isn’t spending enough time with her children and she’ll see even less of the kids when she goes on tour with Xscape.

The season is on. We see Cynthia Bailey in full makeup in an expensive kaftan blowing leaves at her home on Lake Bailey.  She is preparing for her 50th birthday party (she admits her birthday was a few months back)  at this party attendees will come dressed as her.

Next scene we see Mrs Leakes, arriving in her Black Rolls Royce, Bitches!   (Warning:  I will be saying Bitches a lot!)  She walks in with air kisses and its now down to business.   She want’s to get down with Kenya business.  Is da gurl married or is he the latest rent a man?       Nene struggles with Cynthia, who is happy! happy! happy! for Kenya.  Her happiness for Kenya trouble’s Nene as Cynthia doesn’t anything about her close friend husband, including his name.  For now its baby?    In addition to not knowing his name, Cynthia doesn’t know how long Kenya has known her man. Answers a besty would have right ?  But she is happy, happy, happy, for Kenya.  Kenya doesnt know Nene is going to lunch with them.

Kenya arrives, in her white convertible Bentley.   She walks in, and Nene is like bitch sit down lets get this interrogation going and tell me EVERYTHANG about your Husband!    Kenya is all smiles but not giving up shit!  His name is baby,  They’re looking for a house together because Moore Manor has ghosts . ( I think we know his name and he breaks windows!)    Nene goes in for round two and gets nothing.

BeWeave it or Dont!

Porsha has a podcast giving out marital advice with her sister and cousin!

One thing is clear this episode, Phaedra Parks is gone but is still very much a part of this episode.    Porsha is the outsider for now and possibly other episodes.  She says  Sheree is the ONLY housewife who has reached out to her.  Meanwhile, Phaedra has texted her and seems to want her friend back.  Porsha isn’t feeling it and her sister and cousin are shooting looks that say, leave that bitch ALONE!

Porsha gives us one.

Some one wants to know if they should introduce their man to the family.   The women is in her twenties and her man is 49, three years older than her dad.  First, Porsha says an old man cant make a baby.  The ladies correct her, and tell her a man in his eighties can father a child.   Porsha, our 265 days a year, THE QUEEN OF ALL KNOWLEDGE WHEN IT COMES TO THE UNDERGROUND RAILROADS SAY’S  “Does that mean they would have old looking kids.” ?

Its Sheree! 

Nene has a boutique in Atlanta call Swagg. She does a few seconds of promotion and Sheree walks in.  The reunion is great, these two run hot and cold.  We get a quick montage of  their fights.  Nene senses Sheree may be seeing someone.  Sheree is not giving it up and in her confessional she made it VERY clear Nene would be the LAST person she would tell.  They talk about Phaedra and Porsha and while Sheree is giving Porsha a break, Nene says Porsha isn’t so innocent  She says Porsha is running around talking about her.   Nene thinks the root of the problem was some advice she gave Porsha on the reunion a few years back.  Sheree says, Nene is surrounded with yes people.  People who agree with her and she doesn’t like people who disagree with her.

Later we see Sheree with Porsha shopping at  a wig shop for Cynthia’s Party.  The two talk about  the status of Porsha and NeNe? Porsha is pissed, she says NeNe said she should be fired on  Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happen’s Live.  As for the advice, Porsha said NeNe could have done that privately.

The Phantom Groom 

In her Bentley, Kenya calls her dad.  He is being questioned about Kenya’s posts on the internet.   Kenya’s dad is very outspoken and she did not want her dad to say anything to upset her future husband.   He tells her he just wants her to be cautious.

Peter

Noelle, loves her former step dad and asks Cynthia did she invite him to the party.?  Its clearly uncomfortable and she calls him.   He tells her he cant make it and you can tell it made her sad.   Its her first birthday without him .

50 Shades of Cynthia (The Party) 

Most of the attendees were in various shades of Cynthia.   There was a little Bravo cross pollination with  Toya and Quad from Bravos’s Married to Medicine.  However, Cynthia’s good friend Nene was awashed in white. She wasn’t trying to look like her good friend.

Sheree and Porsha arrive late.  Porsha, hugs Kandi and someone of the other women, but ignores Nene.   Kandi isn’t cool with the hug and say’s she cant be phony and leaves the area.  Meanwhile, Sheree wants Nene and Porsha to fix whatevahs wrong in housewives style at someone party.

Before I go on, this probably the only fail of the night.  The confrontation between Porsha and Nene at the party looked staged.   Nene’s hubby is sitting behind the ladies as  they go at it.  The camera focused he reactions of compete strangers  Ok Bravo, what’s that all about?

Nene want to know whats going on.  Porsha, said that Nene said on WWHL that she wanted her fired.  How can you want your friend fired right?  Nene said, I never used the words fired!   Before the fight escalates, Nene walks away.    On twitter, a lot of people was surprised!

Fans know, a vintage Nene would have gone off on Porsha, and she would end until Porsha left.   She would get in a verbal sparring match with anyone at anytime, taking no prisoners!   What we saw last night was a mature Nene.

Nene, is entertaining, and I’m liking the mature Nene.  Time will tell .

Would like to hear your comments here or on our You Tube Channel and if you like what you read, pass it on to your friends or better still subscribe.

See ya next week….

(I wanted to say Bitches-but I’ll wait)

RHOA Afterdrama : Does Producer Carlos King play a role in Phaedra Parks Megawatt Lie?


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta

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.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Reunion Pt 3 “All Roads Lead to Phaedra”


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.

 The Heat!

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

The Bomb! 

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.

BECAUSE!

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.”

“Boom”

Phaedra is the source of the rumor.   She is the one who said, Kandi and Todd drugged Porsha. 

WHERE WILL YOU BE NEXT WEEK?

Will The Old Lady Restaurant Damage Todd’s and  Kandi’s Marriage

Construction on the “Old Lady Gang” restaurant is way behind schedule and Kandi isn’t happy with the progress or Todd’s words about the progress.  Peter Thomas, Cynthia soon to be ex husband drop by .  He tells Todd that his marriage to Cynthia is over. Partly due to being in business together.  This makes Todd think about his marriage.

Mama Joyce comes over to baby sit, she can sense there is stress between the two and says they work hard especially Kandi.      She arranges alone time for the two. She has outfitted their bathroom with wine, sex toys and handcuffs.  Kandi seemed a little weirded out (who wouldn’t be) by her mothers encouragement and Mama Joyce takes it down another notch by asking to borrow Kandi’s revealing outfit she bought for Todd’s eyes only.  Todd applies honey to Kandi’s body and before the show becomes sex in Atlanta, we move on.

Missing at the AVT Park

Saving the Chocolate Boys 

Phaedra has been invited to attend the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, she asked Porsha to attend.  She was a member of a panel on gun violence  just before leaving to the conventions she learns another black man was killed by the police.

Back in Atlanta, Sheree gets a late night call from her 19 year old son Kairo.   Her son Kairo was arrested for a DUI. According to Kairo, he was smoking pot and got pulled over for an expired tag. She is worries how he will be treated by the law because of his skin color. She reminds him of when they attended a rally in Washington DC where parents who have lost their children to police violence. Where they heard mothers giving over their child’s deaths.  Good children, like Kairo who were killed at a young age.  She tells him  “You have to work harder. You have to be better,”

Sheree feels Kairo doesn’t get it and feels his father might be more effective.  Bob’s  opening statement, made her do a double take as he thinks medicinal marijuana is good and better than opioid’s and  he has a medical marijuana card. He recovers sort of by urging his son to never drive and smoke or spend time with people who condone it.

Back in Philadelphia we hear from  Jahvaris Fulton, older brother to Trayvon Martin and director of The Trayvon Martin Foundation,  who tells the panel, “There’s not one simple answer. It’s definitely a combination of you have to build relationships with police in the community and you have to ban semi-automatic weapons.”

Phaedra drives to see Apollo in prison. On route she learns— someone went to her office with a grenade to blow himself and the office Up!   She worries if someone knows where she lives?  Freaking out, she arranges a safe place for her kids and her mother who ultimately calms her through prayer.   Dammit Someone call Olivia Pope stat!

RHOA: S8 EP15 “The Kenya Apologies-Maybe Its Love! Maybe It’s Maybelline!


Last nights episode was fun!

Dare I say it?  Nene has been a delight (so far) she hasn’t been mean and nasty.  She’s funny  and those facial expressions.

She brokered a peace deal between Kenya and Kim. (we will get to that later).  Sheree and ex husband Bob has added comic relief.

Fruity or Gay?

The episode began  where the last episode left off.  Is Kim Fields husband a fruity Pebble? Sheree who said she couldn’t stand the fakery (even though she played a small part in the controversy the night before) told Kim what was up, in front of the group . There were silent gasps. (Sheree will get her peach back as Bravo’s official messenger)

While most of the women felt guilty participating in the conversation,  Kenya didn’t give a shit and went all in.  Telling Kim that people in The Industry calls her husband Chrissy . BUT!! “I don’t think we care if your husband is gay or whether you guys are having tax problems.”  Yikes, who mentioned “Tax Problems?’  Stir that cauldron Kenya!

The Jesus driven Ms Fields excused herself from the group so she could give herself a thorough christian cleanse.  The devout one now uses                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     worldly language (is fuck worldly or common?) and her middle finger now plays an important roll in the confessional.

Her hubby Chris calms her before she starts speaking in tongues.  He is clearly unaffected by the rumors and added, if he Googled some of the housewives/husbands he would see a lot of them in police photos.

Remembering Kandi and Todd

Remember the Tuckers?  The very pregnant Mr’s Tucker couldn’t make the trip to Jamaica.  Todd has an idea of opening a restaurant called the “Old Lady Gang”    Mommy in Law Joyce is supportive as is the middle sister Nora, but Bertha gave the idea her standard  “Hell No”

Take 2

Todd and Kandi finds a potential chef Javion for the restaurant and brings the Old Lady Gang” to taste test the food.  You got to love Bertha. She is the real deal.  He brings out the devil eggs, Joyce, Nora and everyone is loving them , Bertha isn’t feeling it.  Chicken and Waffles?  The Chicken isn’t just right for Bertha. not crisp enough.  He offers her Salmon, shes not interested in  any fish or any kind. Take it away!  No Fish!

Javion is sinking fast, he’s dealing with Atlanta’s version of Chef Gordon Ramsey.  He brings out the ribs…..no one says anything at this point, waiting for chef Bertha’s approval.   She announces they are off the chain (to those who live in the suburbs this means fantastic)

Todd bypasses Joyce and Nora and asks Bertha if she is on board with the restaurant idea? after a dramatic pause ,he gets a yes..   Todd acts as its done deal, but  landing the perfect chef may be an issue, as Bertha is quick to say Hell No!

 

Read School Is in Session

Phaedra the Queen of Shade and Nene the Queen of Read takes Kim Fields under their collective wings.  The only person is missing is Sheree  who can throw shade and read at the same time and like Nene she go street in 20 seconds.

They are preparing Kim for Kenya and the results are hilarious.  Kim feels she is above this but the two women feels she needs it to survive.   Phaedra and Nene roll play, with Phaedra being Kenya and Nene being Kim.  Phaedra being the resident Southern Belle, never uses a word would cause her to be thrown out of church and yet she can skillfully Ginsu any opponent before they’ve realized they have lost a limb.  Nene will get her ass thrown out of church every single time.   Her coolness has about a five minute limit, from there its on.

In the role playing,  it was all lady like until Phaedra(Kenya) called Nene’s (Kim) man gay. Where Nene came back “Ah wait a minute Bitch!”

One gets the impression Kim was thanks, but no thanks.  Her schooling may be invaluable should she choose to stay on this show.

Hysterical

Peter Thomas’s Jamaica 

Bravo’s field trip was a success. Kenya into herself, licking her wounds of rejection, continued to separate herself for the group.  At the water park, she was needlessly competitive.  She and Matt missed most of the entertainment during the evening.

Peter and Cynthia were on the mend.  Sheree cautiously  enjoyed the company of her ex. Bob Whitfield. Phaedra through herself in the revelry joining in with the dancers. Oliver and Porsha bonded.  Nene and Greg were Nene and Greg.  Matt and Kenya bonded and Kenya glowed. Peter said, Matt told him he loved Kenya.  Peter said, Kenya was misunderstood, and was a very nice person. (Computer say’s whatttt!)

 

The Sit Down (Kenya and Kim)

At dinner, Nene brings up a conversation she had with Phaedra and Kim. Kim still uncomfortable with confrontations wants to pass.  But Nene want them to move forward.

Kim’s opening line was a bit confusing, it starts off as if she is going to accept an award. But she starts off saying they either need to be civil or not talk at all and she say’s it’s disrespectful for Kenya to be talking about her family.

Kenya goes on the defensive,  “Well I’m glad you can speak for yourself”  Nene and Cynthia called her and reminded her how Kim was respectful.   Kenya came clean  and apologized (mark this date on you calendar ) and realized she was caught up in her feelings.  Kim and Kenya agree to move on respect each other.

The Kenya Apologies

On the next day. Cynthia impressed with Nene wants her to facilitate the conversation between she and Kenya.   Nene declines.

Cynthia is a nice woman, but a weenie, she avoids confrontations at all cost and in this group of women, she brings the wish into wash,the flip into flop.

Kenya’s only friend in this group has been Cynthia. Cynthia had her back.  Kenya’s error was her sense on entitlement and Kenya thought Cynthia was being disloyal for choosing Kenya and went into super brat mode.  Directing her anger and sites on Kim.  But Kim showed up at the meeting, Kenya didn’t and felt entitled due to their friendship. In the real world you don’t get a  second chance.

She struck back at Cynthia due to Cynthia’s flip flop on their relationship.

Nene’s return just added another log on the fire with the brat feeling she was being replaced.  Kenya admitted being caught up in her feelings and apologized .

Kenya apologizing?  Perhaps Matt’s bringing out her softer side or maybe its Maybelline!

Phaedra is not buying the Kenya Apology, your thoughts?

RHOA-S8 EP10 “Trouble on the Family Tree” (The Return of Monster/Mother Joyce)


 

Family affair: The reality star was glad that her father's side of the family showed up and stayed

 

This could be called the Family Episode  Porsha and her sister Lauren, Kandi and Monster Joyce*.  Kenya and the Moore’s. Peter and Cynthia.

Remember this Short Song

Ain’t no drama like family drama 

cause family drama , don’t stop!

Kandi and Monster Joyce*

There was a time when we loved Kandi’s mother Joyce. She was a sweet lady who could have been everyone’s mother.  She disapproved  of Kandi’s male choices and went off the rails after she was engaged to Todd Tucker. Her madness forced a change in names, she went from Mother Joyce to Monster Joyce.

Last night we saw a glimpse of Mother Joyce.  She and Kandi went shopping for the new children and the subject of Phaedra came up.  Monster wanted everything to be calm for Kandi and her high risk pregnancy.   Despite her daughters wishes she visits to Phaedra and sought a reconciliation and in a skillful move or Georgia Luck tapped Phaedra to Lead and host Kandi’s baby shower.  The question is Mother back?

Porsha and Lauren

Porsha wants her sister and assistant to be there for her 24/7.  Lauren’s life and needs comes after Porsha’s needs.  Porsha freaks when Lauren misses a delivery.  She seems to have little patience for her sisters pregnancy.  The two fight at the GYM.  Porsha later apologies and asks why Lauren kept her pregnancy a secret from her for so long; Lauren explains that she did that because she was sensitive to Porsha. Porsha wanted to have children with her husband but was unable.

The Main Event

Kenya’s Family Reunion

Kenya is throwing a family reunion in her home town of Detroit.  Her friend Brandon and her Aunt Lori travels with her from Atlanta.  The majority of the attendees are from her father side.   The only person attending from her mothers side is her Aunt Lori.  Lori is her mothers older sister.

Her mother had her when she was 15 (her dad was 16)  From her dad we learn her mother’s father was cold to him, they could be in the same room and her father would completely ignore her dad.

Kenya’s mother wanted to give her up for adoption, but her father’s mother begged to keep her, so that’s who mostly raised her. Although she’s close with Lori, her mother’s sister, her mother has never wanted anything to do with her and ignores her existence.  At her mothers insistence Lori wont share her personal phone number with Kenya.

Its difficult not to feel sorry for Kenya.  However, when she drives up in a van with full of people and drives up to her moms door.   Remember, Kenya hasn’t seen her mom in……….     So she has a van and a camera crew and expects her mom to walk out and say hi?    I think not.  She reports back that she heard her mother lock the door from the inside. Reality Television Too much?

Last week, I was hard on Kenya’s dad.  Last night we learned more about him.  He was genuinely hurt by Kenya, and her silence.  Some of her interactions with her family seems camera ready . The tee shirts passed out say’s  “Kenya’s family reunion” speaks well to her narcissism.

Another person who did not attend the family reunion was Aunt Lori.

We’ll learn next week why.

Closing the Book

Phaedra sees the video, the video was filmed a day before she had her last child.  She doesn’t like they way she looks and doesn’t intend to release the video.  In the confessional, she is being Phaedra snarky-“I’m not crying about a couple thousand dollars — I have jobs.”  Todd has it all together and its done.  Todd’s gonna get his money.

Speaking of NEXT week.  Nene returns, did she and Cynthia mend?

RHOA S8 Ep9 “Shade for Days


Lets be clear

Don Juan  is a peach wanting, trouble making, little puke!

Last week Don Juan tried to make a lot out of nothing. Appearing at the end of a conversation Phaedra was having with friends, that he found important enough to enter.  He was immediately dismissed by Phaedra and later Porsha. How Dare Porsha Dismiss him.!

The Shit Show featuring “Don Juan”

What does Carmon and Don (you know this isn’t his real name) Juan do for Kandi other than picking up a check?  Remember the Ski Trip where Todd’s assistant did all the work? any da who?

Shamea who was actually a third in the full conversation with Phaedra and Porsha wants to meet with Kandi.  To tell her what went down after the Video party. Don Juan, trying to keep cool said, Shamea I’m surprised that your here? He now has to protect his bit of fiction.  Don and Carmon was talking loud and over Shama who to her credit wouldn’t let them trash her friends.

Don Juan makes up his own special version on the conversation.  Is trashing Phaedra and  Porsha along the way.   Carmon WHO KNOWS  how messy Don IS getting caught up in his fictional version of the four seconds of what he heard.   Home trash, supposedly a GOOD friend to Kandi has done his best to make sure the relationship between Phaedra and Kandi stays raw.   The killer is how gullible Kandi is, she also knows the limitations of her friends as we do of our own friends and she yet she allows herself to be influenced by Don (Home Trash) Juan.  He want to demonize Porsha who didn’t say anything about Todd or Kandi, she was just there an innocent bystander who dismissed Home Trash.

    If Don Juan really wants a peach he to take his Trifilin assets to the produce section of his local Kroger.

Yall needed to talk a long time ago

The center of this controversy is the money Phaedra owes Todd for the exercise DVD produced by Todd a few years ago.

When it comes to this money, Phaedra has been talking a lot of shit about Todd. In the confessional Shadra was being Shadra, talking about how Todd needs his money because his shows failed.    The motive of the pissery (another word I made up) is unknown.   Perhaps she is pissed about Todd’s relationships with Apollo. Perhaps it was about the storing of his belonging at his home.  Who knows?

Phaedra., being Being  defensive, she says “Todd been yapping away about me owing him money, but he’s conveniently left out that he owes me an exercise DVD” It’s clear Phaedra, isn’t too worried about the DVD. What is it called? Donkey 2 or the return of the Donkey?  People have a way about asking for what they want. So this DVD isn’t a priority to Ms Donkey Butt.

Todd’s not totally innocent. This transactions happens years ago.  The timing is curious. Suddenly its become an issue and he act’s as if Kandi should handle his business.

If Kandi had Todd in her life before the “Tardy to the Party debacle” she wouldn’t have lost a dime.   Cause Todd,  being the professional, backed up his shit in HD .  Presented Phaedra with copies of contracts and cancelled checks and documents and told her what she need to do to finish the project as to say NOW WHAT!!!!

Phaedra now and forever knows not to play in Todd’s backyard.  Todd will be getting his money before he takes her new boobs.     The End, (slow fade) .

And another thing  (this was inspired by  Ashley Miller’s You Tube Channel-Find her! ) Ms Butt.  You need to let go of this poor single woman bit. There are millions of single women without your wealth , rasing their children, holding down the house and paying there bills on TIME, so knock it off, its tired and not a good look on a woman who prides herself of having many jobs.

Her hand of cards

A lot of people despise Kenya Moore.  A shit stirrer she is.  Outside of her reality and professional life, she is a real person who wants a loving a mother and father.

Her mother wants nothing to do with her.   Kenya’s dad moved the family from Detroit to Houston . When she was 12 ,she ran away back to Detroit. her father didn’t talk to her for years her leaving.

When she attempts to communicate with her dad, we don’t see love. Despite her accomplishments, he is clearly disappointed and disapproving.  He criticizes a glass of water, a simple glass of water. If there is love from him it must come from a  teeny tiny place in his heart off camera. While we see a soft side of him, he is often cruel to her.    Kenya  wants a dad, perhaps a dad with a shoulder, a reassuring hug, someone who will tell her everything is gonna be okay.  He is not the one and possibly he will never ever be the father she needs. Its sad, she was dealt a hand of bad parents and she needs to move on.

Uh oh A Party

The Cynthia Bailey Eye-ware Appreciation Party

The first fart of the evening happened when Cynthia said she wanted both Kim Fields and Kenya Moore to work on a Commercial for her eye glasses.   That’s like asking Oprah and Kris Kardashian to produce a Talk show. One is clearly more qualified and has more experience. Kim took the high road. didn’t cuss anyone out.

All the players are at this party, including Home Trash, Carmon, Shamea and all the other players  Porsha asks to speak to Kandi alone.  With all the players present (can somebody say Hello!)  Don (Home Trash) Juan apologized and admitted he can sometimes go over the top but he just being supportive of his friend Kandi.  Porsha dismisses it and wants to talk to Kandi ALONE.     Home Trash and Carmon wasn’t having it and followed. Porsha  looked and basically said, forget this shit and left.

A frustrated Porsha talks to her bud Shamea, asking when was the last time Kandi couldn’t talk to me in private?  Now Carmon is stirring shit telling HER tale. Porsha is determine to talk to Kandi.  She tries.  Kandi has attitude, and has now fully absorbed Home Trashes version of the story.  Then the discussion take another turn.  Porsha’s friendship with Phaedra.  Porsha said she been supportive of me and I’m supportive of her ,she needs me more than you do, she just lost her husband a single parent, and Kandi went to 100!  She didn’t want to be with him anyway you believe the HYPE!

Porsha, Porsha,Porsha!

Porsha’s sister Lauren is expecting. Porsha is a bit jealous and insensitive.  Going on about who’s going to be her assistant.  Didn’t she have a million people in her company? None of them are available?   Working for Dish Nation at the Emmy’s she knocked it out of the park.
