Before we get to the next episode, HilDogAtl has reviewed last week’s blogs even though she has pneumonia. Thank you HilDogAtl – get better soon xxoo NMD
Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Blogs Blogged by HilDogAtl
Kenya is the first lady to blog this week and apparently she is knocking it out early as she is on her way on vacation. She starts her blog listing all of the appearances that she has made this week and has the audacity to add links so we can hear her schpeel on how everyone has gotten her wrong. She still continues to bring up the Jet casting issues with Cynthia…side note-is she EVER going to get over this? We all saw what we saw…blame it on editing but you obviously acted like you were the grand marshall of Freaknik.
“I’m obviously meeting with Apollo and Phaedra to discuss working on a workout video. I’m a very honest and vocal person and don’t consider complimenting Apollo on his physique flirting and certainly meant no harm or disrespect. Naturally, fitness and physique play a role in our potential upcoming venture. All present knew that it was not flirting.”
SIDE NOTE-Yes, our eyes saw it…you WERE flirting Kenya…it was blatantly obvious to everyone involved and from what I saw Apollo was getting a little bit uncomfortable. Furthermore, Ms. Phaedra was definitely giving you some side eye with every word and eye lash bat.
“Phaedra had no issues with my compliments or jokes nor did my guy. And who flirts with their mate present if they were up to no good? Really, who does that? It was lighthearted and harmless people. It is still my opinion that Apollo is fine and Phaedra is a lucky woman but that is Phaedra’s husband. And I’m not interested in her husband or anyone else’s husband. Enough said.
I don’t buy what this woman is selling one bit! Call me crazy but I know what flirting looks like. Kenya’s face said it all. She was taken aback by how damn sexy Apollo was and here she is looking at Phaedra and Apollo and then Phaedra again and probably thinking “How in the hell did she boo this sexy man up, she isn’t a beauty queen…I am…and here I am stuck looking at this chump of a man (albeit he does have a little bit of money) who is old and washed up”. People flirt all the time. It doesn’t matter if you are wifed up, engaged or dating…people flirt! IMO, if Apollo and Phaedra weren’t in fact married…I think we would have a little more drama on our hands to witness. Ok, ok…done with my rant…for now.
Kenya then has to do the obligatory laying in on Ms. Porsha. She starts saying her nieces are so intelligent that at 4-6yrs old they know multiplication. Huh?? I was a pretty smart cookie growing up but at 4-6 I sure as heck wasn’t learning the multiplication tables. These kids must be savants or something. These kids even know that there are 365 and ¼ days in the year. (Yeah freaking right…she googled that one!) “But I really can’t laugh at a grown woman of 32 with this type of impediment. It’s actually very sad and hurts my heart to watch until I hear the constant jabs being taken at me.” Girl, you showed up late and thought you were the guest of honor. You played the spoiled, bitchy, pageant queen that you were once were…you showed no class at that event. Of course Porsha has a right to feel the way she does.
“I do believe NeNe is a good judge of character and I wonder how she feels now knowing that she, Phaedra and Kandi were thrown shade by her and lied on about attending her grandfather’s charity events just to take pictures and leave. The truth will come to light as it always does and one’s true intentions and personhood (is this a real word, sounds odd.) will be known. Hopefully NeNe and company will see for themselves. I’m not so sure about that considering we see in a future episode that you lose your shiznit and apparently didn’t take your anti-psychotic meds. I wonder how NeNe and company will feel about that?
Kenya then finishes up her blog with stating that she was happy Cynthia received an apology from Phaedra and then she still takes a jab at Cynthia by saying she was eye rolling, etc. She also states she loves meeting the other ladies and they have welcomed her. She also adds Cynthia still holds a grudge but NeNe told her to brush it off…sorry, I’d have a grudge too! And…she’s off on a much needed vacay.
Guys, I know that I’ve said it a thousand times that I’m not a huge NeNe fan and after reading page one of her blog, I realize why. I don’t even think that there is a valid commentary for her thoughts. It’s the epitome of mean girls and I don’t have words, I’m at a loss. I truly am. Read for yourselves and develop your own opinion. I was hoping that with all of NeNe’s successes the past year, she would have humbled herself a little more but sadly, this is not the case. Please advise on how you wrap your head around this…
“There are things that were shown in this episode that I don’t agree with. Kandi speaks negatively about me once again: lies can sometimes be damaging! Kandi has no idea who my friends are other than Cynthia, what business relationships I have, and to be honest, she doesn’t even know me that well. It’s simply human nature for two people to meet one another and not really click, but let’s not speak about things we truly have no knowledge of! Kandi can’t name one person I’ve ever befriended for a reason, because there are none. I’m the type of lady that doesn’t look for friendship. If one develops, then I welcome it. Kandi loves to say she’s been in the business for 19 years and has accomplished so much. I wonder why I didn’t befriend her. Kim befriended her for a song! Maybe I should have befriended her so I could walk around all day with balls stuck in my vagina!”
Am I being hypersensitive?
And yet again, I am disgusted…she ends her short blog with “Kim storms out of the brunch: free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last!” Why does she feel the need to end with something like this that is a direct quote from the wonderful Dr. Martin Luther King? Uncalled for and tacky in my book, I get she was attempting to be funny but I am not amused.
Again, I will preface that I am a huge Kandi fan and her blog actually solidifies as to why I love this woman. She is classy and taking the high road. She opens with hocking her Bedroom Kandi line and explains that she is not a sex maniac but as a true business woman, she wants to be able to provide advice and insight into her products and she tries her best to use each one so she can give her perspective to potential clients. She also then touches on a few items.
“OK so let’s talk about the drama stuff that I can’t seem to avoid. First, my comments about NeNe. All of NeNe’s fans were mad at me. They were saying I’m jealous, I’m two-faced, I’m hating, etc. LOL! Whatever! I am not jealous of NeNe at all. I’m very happy for her success. I’m definitely not two-faced, because I have been very honest about my feelings towards NeNe all along. Clearly NeNe knows how I feel, because you heard Cynthia say that, “NeNe doesn’t understand why you don’t like her.” I think it’s a bit much to say that I don’t like her, because I don’t have any dislike for her. I just think that I’m very guarded when it comes to her.
I hate to even blog about this, because I’m sure it will do nothing but cause more drama, but I’ll try to give you some insight on where I’m coming from. I think she plays the women of this show just like chess. I’m an observer. I just sit back and watch. When people think I’m not paying attention, I am. NeNe is a smart woman and she plays a game to benefit her at all times. There’s nothing wrong with that. I find it funny how over the years she’ll dog somebody out for doing the same exact thing she has already done or said, as if she has never done or said it. And then everyone starts siding with her as if they don’t remember the bullsh– she did or said.”
I have to say, I am an observer as well! I sit back and watch and form my own opinions. I am an extremely guarded person until I have ascertained your motives. I believe NeNe has motives for all that she does. Do you guys see what I am seeing? Kandi then touches on the fact that NeNe’s fan’s thinks she’s a hater. Who are you kidding me? How can a woman who is a Grammy award winning artist be jealous or hating on a woman that just “got her break”? I mean really? Kandi has been in the game since the 90’s and NeNe has never been one to deny she has been chasing fame her whole life. It’s stupid.
“Anyway with all that said, when I made the comment about her having motives when she befriends people, well, that’s how I feel. I’ve come to that conclusion over the years. Example: when she first heard about Marlo coming around, she was highly upset. I saw it with my own eyes. She was pissed. It had been in the blogs about her possibly dating Charles Grant (Marlo’s ex-boyfriend), which was something NeNe always denied. I guess she felt someone was trying to be messy by bringing Marlo around, and I understood why she could feel that way. Anyway NeNe went from being highly pissed to befriending Marlo overnight. It was clear she didn’t want that Charles situation brought up. So befriending Marlo would definitely stop any drama before it starts. Smart move. As I said, she plays chess with these women. I could add more examples, but no need. You should get my point. I actually felt like at some point she and I were getting along a lot better. You’ll have to keep watching to see it.”
My sentiments exactly…I’ve been watching since day one and even if Kandi came in to the show a season or so late, she knows better. I see it, do you? Kandi then goes on to address the issues at hand with Kim and how people question why she seems to give Kim a pass on everything. She clearly states that Kim and her started off on the right foot and their daughter’s became friends. She also shows her classy side that she made a promise to herself years ago that no amount of money would come between friendship/family. She then touches on the fact as to why we never hear “The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing” except for on RHOA b/c Kim was too damn cheap to pay up front for the song as opposed to screwing Kandi over the way she did with “Tardy for the Party”. She also adds a blurb about how the relationship became awkward.
“When we had the disagreement about the trip, it wasn’t about the fact that she couldn’t go overseas. I don’t want you guys thinking we’re crazy for wanting an 8 month pregnant lady to go overseas. That wasn’t the frustration. The frustration was because SHE gave those dates that were supposed to be approved by her doctor. So a few of us passed up on other opportunities to make those dates work. On top of it all, she was still going on vacation on those dates, just not with us. It would have been better for her to just be honest and say she didn’t want to go from the beginning. Clearly she doesn’t want to be around us. Whenever she does come, she’s barely there. At that point we were all done. Why keep asking someone to be a part of something that they really don’t want to be a part of?”. I agree, Kim has been a waste of space for some time now. It’s best she take her divatude and on to the next.
Kandi then touches on the whole Kash scandal. Dear Lord, lame! She states that there is no need for her to freak about her naming her son that as she doesn’t even have said child and all of it is trivial. I agree. Lame, lame, lame!!! Kandi stays classy by saying that who would’ve thought they both would come up with the same name, maybe it is a Taurus thing! LMAO!
NeNe is her first topic of discussion, she states that she knows her and Gregg are working on their relationship and there is love there. Umm, yeah, they never really divorced. Yeah, they did but did it in a very strange way…they are NOT the new normal. She then touches on the lunch with Kandi and how she didn’t realize that there was so much on the back side between the two of them. She is clueless as to the reasons of how and why they aren’t friends.
I enjoyed meeting Porsha. None of the other ladies seemed to know her, and I had no expectations. She was warm, friendly, and very chatty. I liked her right away, because she just seemed really sweet. I am very familiar with her family’s charity Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless, and I love that she is so involved. Giving back to those who are less fortunate shows great character and is the right thing to do. I was surprised when she made the 265 days of the year slip, but thought it would be rude to interrupt her speech to correct her. It was an honest mistake.”
I concur! It was a simple mistake. She then touches on the fact that she accepts Phaedra’s butt dial apology and she appreciates the fact that they were two grown a$$ women and squashed the ish before it became a huge affair! I love how she ends with not even giving Kim the time of day by stating “bye Kim”. LMAO!
“What’s up, my loves? I hope you all had a great weekend! I was so late on last week’s blog that I decided I would play catch up with you this week. *Smile* Did you all enjoy the episode?! I know I did, even though I must say it left me with mixed feelings about a couple things. Boy, I tell you it never gets easy seeing myself on TV. Seriously, it’s one thing to film and an entirely different experience watching yourself in action.
In the last episode you guys know that I met Cynthia and NeNe for the first time. Honestly, it was a little nerve wracking seeing I had so little time to prepare. My goal going into the meeting was to give the ladies more information of my vision for how I would like to increase donations for the foundation as well as experience a more intimate side of the founder, Rev. Dr. Hosea Williams, by having them over to his home. I was also hoping they would like to become active with the foundation and participate in a Public Service Announcement. Gathering up my confidence, I was up for the challenge. I’ve seen and witnessed NeNe from a distance volunteering at my family’s charity event. She really seemed pleasant, but we never actually met. I knew that she was known for being outspoken, so I couldn’t help from wondering if she would be territorial when I joined the group.” I have to say, I’m confused by her intro considering we are just getting to know her but I suppose she deserves a pass as she is a newbie and I believe that the core, a very sweet young woman who has good intentions.
Porsha touches on the fact that she had already met crazy and was concerned how being with NeNe and Cynthia would be but in the end they discussed real woman things such as kids, marriage and the like. She touches on how she, too was embarrassed of the 265 day a year comment. She then touches on how she felt she should open up her story about having fibroids and how she hopes other women will also go see a doctor to see what’s really going on. I admire that I must say, yes, it was awkward to see on camera but she truly is trying I believe. She gives some statistics and prays she gets a second shot at motherhood. This can’t be easy for this young lady, I must say. It’s one thing to go through in private but to broadcast shows that she is trying to shed light on a subject that many doctors don’t even recognize.
“Wow! That lunch sure did go from good, to bad, to ugly real fast. I think it had to do with Kim’s “I’m coming,” “I probably shouldn’t,” to nope “I’m NOT going with you guys.” Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to meet Kim, however after watching her it seems she is really into family and therefore on her list of priorities they come first. I’m the exact same way. I can also understand the ladies’ reaction to her answer and why it wasn’t very well received. Seems they had been looking forward to the trip as a last ditch effort to save their friendships. I really felt their sentiment was genuine towards one another and was quite proud of NeNe for keeping calm, because honey for a minute I thought the diva was about go into real diva mode” So very, very confused!! But whatevs!
“As for the Former Miss USA… *Get yo life* How pathetic to invite yourself on a trip. I’m assuming you’ll be bringing this man you are trying to TRAP. Hit me up and let me know if I need to teach you how to get a HUSBAND, because as for those freezer burned micro dishes, sorry, those aren’t going to cut it, honey! Note: know that you are worth him asking for YOUR hand and not the other way around. Otherwise it comes off looking a bit desperate, don’t you think? LOL. “ Yes Ma’am! I love it! LOVE IT!
Porsha ends with talking of making her first pot roast and to follow her. I hope my gut is right about her. I’ve been wrong before.
Really guys…this is a sad attempt to save face and have you watch her show. Yes, I know she couldn’t travel but these other ladies couldn’t have conspired to all have the same story and most importantly, Kandi would never. Read for yourselves.
“Going to Anguilla would have been the trip of a lifetime, but under DOCTOR’S ORDERS I was unable to travel. Traveling 32 weeks pregnant is such a scary risk and for the women to think that I was willing to take that risk FOR THEM is absurd, especially since I don’t consider them my friends. Traveling to Anguilla isn’t an easy-breezy trip. I’d have to get on the plane to St. Marten, THEN take a boat to Anguilla. It just wasn’t going to happen. PERIOD. My health is more important than arguing and bickering with people. These women can’t get along in Atlanta, and you expect me to believe they are going to another country and it’s going to be Hakuna-Matata? You know there are going to be fights on that trip. I made no mistakes by staying home.
When the ladies said I gave them dates that I was able to travel, I had no clue where they got those dates from. It honestly looked like a set up. It was a no-brainer that an 8 month pregnant woman can NOT leave the country. When I said my family and I were going to Lake Oconee for a family trup, Kandi asked why I can go on a trip with my family and not with them. Let me tell you, Lake Oconee is one hour away from my home and in the state of Georgia! And then NeNe saying I stuffed a pillow in my dress…are you serious?! Mocking me about my blood pressure, my wig, etc, I didn’t find funny either. I had baby Kash August 15th, which was 5 weeks after that brunch! Phaedra stating, “I don’t have time for my friends?” Well, I don’t and these women are NOT my friends. The only person I considered my true friend was Kandi throughout the years.”
“What I find so hilarious is NeNe calling me a liar! NeNe, tell me one thing I have EVER lied about? I would love to hear that! NeNe is very strategic in all she does and has never done something without a motive in all the years that I have known her.
NeNe also says I always leave early. Honestly, these women are on their own time! Prime example: NeNe’s event that I took the high road and attended started at 6pm and was set to end at 8pm. I showed up at 6:30 and waited until 8:30 when I HAD to leave. I have a nanny at home and when I say I will be home at 9pm, I WILL be home at 9pm. I cannot continue to expect my nanny to stay hours and hours beyond what I asked. My priority was my 1-year-old at home. Like I said at the brunch, having a 1-year-old at home is far different then having a 10, 12, or 14-year-old at home.
I was sitting there listening to them attack me, and I feel like I had an “aha moment” — I have an amazing life with a great husband and awesome kids, why am I sitting here being attacked when I could be home being loved by my family. So I got up and left. When I got to the car and my husband saw me so upset, he knew at that moment I had enough! It was no longer worth it to me and my unborn son to be in a constant state of turmoil.”
Guys, I don’t have time for this girl’s lies and attitude. I think we are all sick of her diva attitude and it isn’t pretty. She then goes on to say that she appreciates Bravo, the fans, blech…im sick! It’s all a ploy to get us to watch her new show. Of course, page three is saying she wasn’t fired and of course, her new show all by her grown self.
I’m tired of her and I don’t think I will miss her. She is so self absorbed and again, it ain’t pretty.
Tonight is our first Kim Zolciak free episode of Atlanta! Bloop bloop. Thanks BB for the photo!
Tonight’s episode, from Bravo’s website:
“As the ladies deal with the aftermath of a blowout with Kim, Cynthia and Peter decide to move forward and invite another couple to fill Kim and Kroy’s place: Porsha and her NFL-star husband, Kordell Stewart. Once in Anguilla, the couples all frolic with their partners, but tensions flare when Kenya get flirtatious with someone other than her own man.”
Well we’ve known from the previews that Kenya is going to flirt with Apollo. I really can’t blame her – except for the fact that he’s MARRIED!
And for Shahs
“After her spat with Vida at a birthday dinner, MJ heads to the therapist to confront her issues with her mom, and realizes she is carrying more baggage than she thought. Mike has fallen in love with a girl but faces obstacles in their relationship. Then tempers flare at a pool party over a perceived insult, and Asa and GG’s simmering resentments come to a shocking climax.”
