#RHOA: A Perspective of Season 7

I’ll be honest, I stopped blogging about this show before my computer crashed. These women are vicious, angry and no longer fun to watch. They are not real friends and they genuinely do not like one another and that does not make good TV. At least for me it doesn’t. Just like RHOBH, I’ll start by giving my perspective of the Georgia peaches.


Nene Leakes- She came into the season off of her Zumanity high and as soon as she landed back in the A-T-L, her face was made up like she smelled some dog shi–. It was pretty evident this season that Nene does not like any of the girls and she clearly did not want to film with them. If that was the case, there’s a simple solution for that, darlin’: quit. I mean, you’re rich, aren’t you? Oh, wait, if she quit the show then she wouldn’t be rich anymore. Look, I respect all that Nene’s accomplished and I give her kudos for all of it, but humility goes a long way. I would say she should have a slice of humble pie but I’m pretty sure she needs the entire pie…maybe 2. I’m not saying she shouldn’t be proud of everything she’s done, but her ego is so damn big that it needs to be holding its own peach. When she returns for season 8, I hope we get the Nene from season 5. She was a joy to watch then. This one, not so much. She’s always grumpy and act like she’s better than everyone and believes that everything anybody does is to come for her. #GirlBye.


Kenya Moore- This was a very big season for Kenya. For Kenya, this was the season of vindication. For the last 2 seasons her character had been assassinated by Phaedra and the others based on lies that Apollo told on her. I won’t blame the entire fiasco on Apollo, because I have to keep it real. Kenya gave the other housewives a plethora of ammunition to use against her. It’s like Peter said at the reunion: Kenya got a bad rep from the start because of her personality. Also, in the spirit of keeping it real, I must admit, as much as I like Kenya, I do think that she studied the show before she came on it. Which is a smart thing to do because she’s definitely been a lightning rod on the show. Not to mention that ratings have increased immensely since she joined. I do enjoy Kenya and her antics on the show. After Kim and Sheree left, there’s no way Nene could carry this show on her own.


Kandi Burruss- Kandi has been my favorite since she joined. She’s always been consistent, kind, neutral and very down to earth. This season Kandi also got the bad edit this season as being the “bad friend” to the morally corrupt Phaedra Parks. Phaedra had insinuated that she hadn’t spoken to Kandi for months and that  Kandi hadn’t been there for her. I have a problem with that. Why? Although Kandi admitted that she didn’t text Phaedra every day, they never went months without talking. Kandi actually revealed, and it’s on YouTube, the timeline of all the times they’ve talked and hung out together from before the show was filmed and Apollo was sentenced, all the way to filming. They talked frequently, though not as frequent as they used to. Not to mention, Kandi was the one who gave Phaedra the heads up about Apollo spreading those chocolatey rumors. Furthermore, Kandi had problems of her own regarding her marriage, her play and one of her own relatives was going to jail around the same time as Apollo. Sure, it wasn’t her husband, but it was family nonetheless. Kandi shouldn’t take it personally though. I think Phaedra threw Kandi under the bus to deflect what was really happening in her life at the time. I won’t say what it is, but I’ll give you a hint: Angela Stanton.

Phaedra Parks- The self-proclaimed Southern Belle and Christian had it the worst this season. Her husband went to jail for fraud and her scandalous ways were put in the spotlight. I do feel sympathy for her boys because one day they will watch the show and see how their mother vilified their father. I’m not saying he’s not a piece of garbage for what he did, but still, that is something that should be kept private and if there ever was a time and reason for Phaedra to quit the show, this should have been it. But of course, a famewhore will do anything to remain relevant.


Cynthia Bailey- Cynthia was definitely the most outspoken that she’s ever been on this show. She took no nonsense from anybody and threw shade like nobody’s business. I will say, as much as I liked this side of Cynthia, she was a little bit messy in the way she did things. For example, when she called out Phaedra on her alleged affair with Mr. Chocolate, she should have left that to Kenya because she was clearly uncomfortable bringing it up. This season, her friendship with Nene deteriorated despite her efforts to make peace.


Claudia Jordan- The woman that snatched the peach right out of Porsha’s hands. I enjoyed Claudia this season. She kept it real, seems genuine and just because she’s quiet doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have the fire up inside her to get you all the way together. Bitch, she ain’t no puppet. And we all found that out. I hope she returns for season 8. She probably gave the best reads of the season. Claudia, I love ya!

NOTE: I will not be commenting Porsha because she was not a main housewife and in my opinion she does not belong on this show. Send that THOT to Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta. By the way, did anybody else notice that Porsha looked like Tyra Sanchez (RuPaul’s Drag Race) at the reunion?



At the reunion, of course there were insults being hurled left, right and center. Team Beast got read. However, the most memorable moment of the reunion was Nene’s meltdown. After Dr. Jeff joined the housewives, Nene brought up the fact that her mother didn’t raise her and her father never claimed her. She then started to shake and as Kenya was speaking to her, she started to cry and was escorted off the reunion stage with Dr. Jeff, Porsha, Phaedra and Cynthia. Gregg then revealed to Andy that Nene and her brother were sent to Atlanta while their other three siblings stayed in New York with their mom. “It bugged her all her life,” Gregg said. After her breakthrough, Nene seemed to understand that she was a big part of the negativity this season, but we’ll see if it was really a breakthrough or just bullshit. I’d like to say I’m hopeful that this means she will change her ways but I think we all know better than that. It’s a shame.

At this point, I have no idea if I’ll be watching the show next season. This cast needs some serious shaking up and by shaking up of course I mean fire, Phaedra and Porsha. I don’t want to see a random– excuse me, Princess of the hoes on my screen anymore and I don’t want to see the devil in toad’s clothing either. The only reason I call Phaedra a toad is because she looks like one and felt froggy with Kenya. Ribbit.

All in all, it was a bad season. I was barely entertained and I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

#RHOA S07E11 “Divide And Ki-Ki” Recap

It’s week 11 in the A-T-L and I’m exhausted by these women. They don’t like each other, there are too many double standards and Team Beast needs to go because they are not entertaining to watch at all. This recap might be a bit short because I’ve basically checked out a little bit on this show and I’m exhausted.

Screenshot (281)

We pick up right where we left off…with Nene being read. Her comebacks are getting weaker and weaker and Claudia is eating this girl alive.


Kandi says that basically Claudia is telling Nene everything everybody’s ever wanted to tell her…and then some. Cynthia is loving the fact that Nene is getting read like no one has ever read her and I am loving Cynthia’s new interview look:

Screenshot (301)

Nene tells Claudia that Hollywood isn’t looking for her, but Claudia tells her that Atlanta is…


YAASSS, Claudia! Tell her, girl! Nene pretty much doesn’t have anymore comebacks for Claudia and Team Pretty walks away from the table. I was really hoping one of them would pull back the front of Nene’s wig to show us how bald she really is, but I guess in life you can’t always get what you want.

After they leave the table, Porsha and Phaedra resume to laugh like the mindless idiots that they are and Nene continues to talk more shit behind their back and it is weak. Claudia apologizes to Kenya, Demetria and Cynthia but I don’t see any need to, but it says a lot about her character to do so.

Screenshot (282)

The next day, Kandi calls Don Juan to try and organize things for her musical tour. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get to happen. I need to buy the DVD, though. I want to see it. Claudia goes to the restaurant bar and orders a Pina Colada with extra rum in the early morning. My kind of girl.

Nene and her puppets are talking about last night and they’re on mute. I feel like I’m killing my brain cells when I hear the three of them speaking together.

Demetria is rehearsing for her big night and seems to be under a lot of pressure. Girl, you’ll do fine. Your voice is amazing.

Screenshot (283)

Kenya, Claudia and Cynthia meet up for drinks and Cynthia praises Claudia as the new queen of shade. All hail the queen. Kenya wishes– at that time– that she could hit replay and watch it all again because


It really was. They also officially welcome her into the group. I guess that means that by that time, Claudia had snatched Porsha’s peach because I read that this was the trip that the producers decided to make Claudia a full time housewife.

Screenshot (284)

At the hotel, Demetria visits Miss Piggy– I mean Phaedra– in her room…that her man paid for…after she was disrespected by Phaedra. She apologizes for crossing the line with Phaedra and of course Phaedra doesn’t apologize for starting the whole beef between them in the first place. Demetria is clearly the better person but then again, anybody’s a better person than the morally corrupt Phaedra Parks.

Screenshot (285)

Kandi arranges a do-over Kandi Koated Sex Party that was ruined at her house. She hopes that it will bring the girls closer together by having some fun. A few comments are made about who Porsha is banging and the answer to that is a married African dude. I know Porsha is dumb and all, but it takes a special kind of dummy to think that she can afford a Rolls Royce after walking away with nothing from her divorce and nobody will be suspicious.

Screenshot (286)

The next day, Team Beast and Kandi are on the beach while Team Pretty are hanging out by the pool at the hotel. Phaedra is in a 2-piece with a cover up that’s not covering anything. I am mortified. That woman does not belong in a 2 piece. She looks like a mint-chocolate chip mud slide.

Screenshot (288)

It’s time for Demetria’s performance and all the ‘wives get in the bus and head over to the venue. Nene does something that she never does, apologize to Claudia– which we all know is a fake apology because when you do apologize, it means you’ve learned your lesson and you don’t do it again.

Nene says that one thing she will never do to a woman is diminish her accolades and Claudia points out that she has by calling her a whore. She also calls out the group for having a double standard; ie, Nene and her minions can do or say whatever they want and it’s fine but when Team Pretty does it in retaliation, it’s uncalled for and unacceptable.

Basically nothing gets resolved, Nene was read a second time and Porsha finally got called out about her married African sugar daddy. They arrive at Demetria’s concert late but are just in time to hear her sing her last song. Demetria killed it.

#RHOA S07E10 “Puerto Read-co!” Recap

It’s the episode we’ve been waiting for! The episode appropriately named “Puerto Read-co.” I’ve been hearing about this trip for months after it was filmed. I read that Claudia had read Nene for filth and I could not wait to see it. I must admit, this episode did not disappoint, nor did Claudia. I’m glad somebody finally put Nene in her place. This is probably the shadiest episode ever in the history of the show. And the best shade came from Claudia. YAAASS!!! Claudia became my favorite Atlanta housewife in this episode. I already loved her, but my love grew. It’s a battle between Team Pretty versus Team Beast and tonight, Team Pretty won.

Screenshot (245)

We start off with Kenya accompanying Claudia to the doctor to see if she can “fix” the mess that she’s been telling us about known as her feet; specifically, her toes. The time has come for Claudia to show her toes once and for all and Kenya’s reaction sums it up best for everyone watching.


I also have to give kudos to Claudia for revealing it in front of the world. That took guts, more than what’s hanging over Nene’s pants. The doctor says that basically she has to have surgery to correct everything so she’ll just have to hide her toes in the sand in Puerto Rico.

Screenshot (246)

Kandi meets up with Demetria for drinks and Kandi apologizes to her because she felt bad about the bomb that her friend had dropped on her at her house. A lot of people are accusing Kandi of setting up Demetria. Do I believe it? No. That seems like something her BFF would do, or Nene or Porsha. Kandi has remained the same humble person she was since she started the show. Demetria accepts her apology and respects Kandi’s hustle. Kandi gives her some sex advice and all is well between the two.

Screenshot (247)

Kenya meets Cynthia at The Bailey Agency (ooh, that sounds so chic) along with Cynthia’s assistant, Carlton. They’re trying to help Kenya find a new assistant. She gives them the qualifications her assistant will need and Cynthia said it best, “Michelle Obama needs less help than Kenya does.” Kenya is channeling her inner Miranda Priestly.


The assistants leave and Kenya tells Cynthia that she’s still upset about Nene giving her the cold shoulder at Kandi’s party. At this point, I don’t see why she is surprised. The only person Nene loves is Nene. There’s no more room for anybody else. Nene is her own WCW (woman crush Wednesday) and MCM (man crush Monday). They both come to the realization that Nene is just mean. Welcome to the club, ladies. We took those rose covered glasses off a long time ago. Cynthia doesn’t know who’s coming to Puerto Rico. Will it be NayNay, Nene or Flip-flopping Nene? Kenya’s response to that:

Ooh, so shady. I’m living for all this shade!

Screenshot (248)

Nene is on her way to meet Demetria at the studio. On her way she calls Phaedra. Now, am I the only one who thinks this friendship is bullshit? They’ve hated each other ever since Phaedra got on the show, now all of a sudden Nene’s doing interviews saying that she was Phaedra’s rock? Anyway, Demetria can sing! Where was she when Kandi was doing Don’t Be Tardy For The Party? Phaedra arrives after Nene and she’s acting like a bitter old lady. I will say that I believe Phaedra should be in jail with her huzzzband, but the difference between her and Apollo is she’s just a little bit smarter than him. #TeamAngelaStaton

Screenshot (249)

Demetria, Kandi and Porsha are the first ones to arrive in Puerto Rico. Damn, ever since Porsha got her married sugar daddy she’s been acting like she’s the queen. Well, the real queen snatched her peach. Ha! Plus, she’s wearing the smallest dress ever and the highest shoes. She looks like a damn fool. On the rooftop, Demetria says that the only person she’s been having some tension with is Phaedra. Kandi and Porsha try to assure her that Phaedra is a good person. No, Kandi’s just a good friend. Phaedra is the furthest thing from a good person– and a Christian for that matter.

Kenya, Cynthia and Claudia are the next to arrive aka Team Pretty. Kenya says they’re going to hold the others’ heads in the water until they become nice. Basically like a baptism/exorcism– a bexorcism. Well, if that’s their plan, then they’re definitely going to murder some heifers. Kenya loves that she’s on an all expense paid vacation, courtesy of Roger Bobb.


They arrive at the hotel and Demetria basically ditches Kandi and Porsha to be with them. She tells them about the reading Phaedra has been doing to her and Kenya basically tells her to address it and be honest about how she feels. Good advice, but not the right person to discuss your issues with, girl. Have you forgotten how she is when you try to hold her accountable for her actions?

Nene and Phaedra arrive last. Yeah, that’s it. Boring. These two do not belong on the show. Phaedra is a boring criminal (allegedly) and Nene is just plain boring with a bad wig on. Bravo is wasting their money on this woman.

After arriving to the hotel, Demetria shows Nene to her room and she’s immediately being a bitch. Well, if she doesn’t like it then maybe she can pay for her own suite. I mean, she is rich, y’all! Phaedra throws some shade at Demetria’s stylist and I’m over this woman.

Screenshot (251)

The time has come for Claudia to read the hell out of Nene. I have my popcorn ready. Let’s begin. Claudia, Kenya, Cynthia and Demetria are the first ones to sit at the table, followed by Kandi and Team Beast. Demetria immediately addresses Phaedra about the unnecessary shade she’s been throwing at her and Phaekdra is instantly on the defense. Phaedra tells Demetria that at her age, should she really be trying to become a pop star and Demetria reminds her that she’s younger than her.

Demetria also calls her out for throwing shade at her relationship with Roger and Phaedra tries to throw more shade. Well, Demetria is having NONE of it and gives her a good read, “The only thing we have in common is the number eight. Yours is going and mine’s been here for eight.” Phaedra is stumbling to find words and says that unlike Demetria she has a ring from her husband. I’m pretty sure that ring belongs to the countless victims Apollo scammed.

Cynthia tries to make peace between the two and Nene, the rude bull that she is, (and I meant bull not bully because she looks and chews like one) shuts her down. Oh, Nene was all for Cynthia having a backbone in the past, just not when it’s against her. Got it. The table is silent for a while.

Claudia tries to make peace and Nene tries to come for her. I’m literally shouting to my screen, “Nene…

oda mae brown

In her confessional, Nene is saying that Claudia is not the “it” girl. All the while looking like this:


If this is what an “it” girl is supposed to look like, Claudia is lucky she isn’t one. “Oh, you have your own brain? Oh okay,” Nene quips. “Why wouldn’t I have my own brain? Nene stop,” Claudia fires back. It’s on from here!

Claudia: From the woman who’s the puppet master.

Nene: Puppet master? Giiiirl.

In her confessional Claudia makes it known, “Just because I’m quiet doesn’t mean I don’t have the fire up inside me to get you together. Bitch, I ain’t no puppet. You about to find out.”

tumblr_ni2tzgkwfX1ql5yr7o1_500Nene: I’m a puppet master on these jobs, though.

Claudia: What jobs? The ones that got cancelled?

Nene: My checks didn’t get cancelled though. You wish you had what I had in the bank, darling.

Have you ever noticed that the moment Nene is losing an argument, she starts to flaunt her bank account in everyone’s faces? Nobody cares, honey. The only one checking for your bank account is you.

Claudia: I do, you’re right. For 17 years I’ve been working. I pay my own bills, I don’t have to get on a pole.

Nene: You know you filed bankruptcy, girl.

Claudia: Never been arrested!

Nene: I was arrested in my twenties when I was in college.

Claudia: You went to college?

Kenya: Seven times.

And never graduated either!

Nene: You need to pull my record.

Claudia: Spell “bridesmaids!” The “S” is not silent, honey.

Nene: Let’s talk about something now. I’m in my 40’s. You’re in your 40’s.

Claudia: I am, but we look 20 years apart at least.

Then, the best line of the night:


Even Kandi admits that Claudia is reading Nene like “Hooked on Phonics.” YAASSS! Nene shows Cluadia the back of her head and tells her bye. Also funny to note, whenever Nene doesn’t have a response, she tells somebody “Girl, bye.” And she says that Claudia needs to have her argument with the queen. I was looking around to see if Lawrence showed up because he’s the only queen I know about in that group. Nene’s just a drag.

Claudia calls her out about her being so rich but buying Ramen Noodles looking hair.


The only response Nene can come up with is “Yes, this is the hair I choose to buy.”


Realizing that she’s on the losing end, Nene tries to go for the jugular. She calls Claudia a half-breed and a whore. I’m done with this pig. To be continued, folks.

Well, this episode was electric. As I said, I for one am happy that Claudia put Nene in her place. I can’t wait for next week’s episode.

#RHOA S07E09 “Shades of Shade” Recap

Hey, guys. Once, again, I apologize that I haven’t been posting. It’s been hectic lately and I finally have some time to write my recaps.

Screenshot (221)

Cynthia and Peter are out scouting for a new location for Bar One. I’m sure the editors added in the police sirens to make it seem like a dangerous place. The new location for Bar One is a mess but Cynthia is excited because she sees potential to make anything she wants to. Well go on girl, with ya bad self! I’ll be looking forward to the end results. By the way, if you ever need help, call Lisa Vanderpump. You know that woman has amazing taste.

Screenshot (222)

Claudia visits Kandi at the Kandi factory. Even though we’re still getting to know Claudia, I love her…like more than I do a lot of the other women. There’s something about her that is very real and down to Earth that I like. Anyway, back to the show. Claudia says that she likes to learn from her friends and Kandi seems like the type of person she can learn from who is also supportive without the jealousy and hostility attached. You hit the nail on the head with that one.

They click immediately and Kandi does an impromptu audition for Claudia to be on Kandi Koated Nights. Yep, I enjoy Kenya and Claudia together, but Kandi and Claudia are just as hilarious. I’m going to need more segments of these two together. Bravo, make it happen. Oh yeah, Claudia also spill the beans about Porsha’s African boyfriend. And to think in season 5 everyone was calling Kenya a copycat for the booty DVD.

Phaedra is… I could care less. I do not like this donkey ass at all. Skipping!

Screenshot (223)

Kenya takes her aunt, Lori, to get facials. I have to say, Kenya is slaying in that outfit. I’m going to need her to dress like that from now on. YAASSS, honey! Aunt Lori says that the facial is better than botox and Kenya says that natural is always better and that you only do botox when you look like Nene.


Kenya tells Lori about the dinner she had with Nene and Porsha and she’s actually happy about making amends with them. She also tells Lori that Nene had mentioned that they are friends again. Girl, you know that heifer did not mean that.

Screenshot (224)

Nene is at her house and Gregg is tagging along. Her agent calls her and tells her about some offers she’s gotten to do Broadway, one of them being Cinderella. Nene picked Cinderella. She says that she cannot relate to playing the evil stepmother.


I live for that! Bitch, stop playin’!


You know you shady as hell.

Screenshot (225)

It’s time for Kandi Koated Nights! With their special guest, Claudia!!! Kandi says it can be frustrating working with Todd because they both like to run everything and that causes them to bump heads. It’s a partnership now, Boo. Compromise!

The topic for the episode is business versus pleasure. The upside of Kandi’s relationship with Todd is that when she does a good show, Todd gets a good show at home. The downside is that it turns into business all the time. Kandi’s female co-host is hilarious.

It’s time for Claudia!!! To set the record straight, Claudia has never messed with Jamie Foxx. Too bad, I would have. Since she used to be on The Price is Right, they’re playing a game called, What Would You Do For The Right Price. Ooh, I already know I’m going to love it. I should try this with my friends. For five hundred dollars, she would French kiss Kandi. Hey, I’d do it for free.

Screenshot (226)

Cynthia meets up with Peter at the old Bar One location. The new location will be closed soon and Cynthia is looking forward to moving on because they had a lot of issues there. She feels confident about the new location being in a historical black neighborhood. Peter reminds her that all of his headaches will be her headaches as well so she better be ready.

Ooh, look, another Phaedra segment.


Screenshot (227)

It’s time for Kandi’s sex talk party. There’s a half naked woman on the table surrounded by desserts. Seeing as it is an all female party, I would think that a half naked man would be better. Just saying. Phaedra arrives. Ugh. Porsha arrives. Why? This chick has been irrelevant ever since Kordell and Kenya dismissed her. Please, Bravo, do not invite her back for season 8.

Cynthia, Claudia and Kenya arrive next, followed by Demetria. Thank God. Then Nene. Kenya goes to give her a hug and Nene gives her the cold shoulder. Nene says that they’re cool but she doesn’t want Kenya thinking and telling people they are friends. Then maybe she shouldn’t have told her they were.


She then completely ices out Claudia. Mm, mm, mm. That’s a low down dirty monkey with a Ramen noodles wig on. Well, Claudia is not having any of it. Claudia pulls her aside and calls her out on it. Nene retaliates saying that they only met once and she doesn’t know her well enough to be excited to see her. Well, she met Demetria for the first time at this party and Demetria got a hug and a kiss… If you want to go around and say you keep it real, then that requires you to be honest. Just say that you don’t like Claudia because she’s friends with Kenya. Isn’t that why Nene is no longer friends with Marlo?

They all gather around and it’s time for them to be strapped next to each other. The doctor calls on Nene and Cynthia and Nene immediately shuts it down. Dear God, this woman does not belong on this show anymore. I’m tired of her ugly ass mug. Kandi then asks Claudia to go sit beside Nene and there goes that mug again. Kandi is over Nene and is all:


Kandi then calls on Kenya to get on her back and she straps on to Kenya. It looks like fun for people who are actually friends. Nene does not belong there because she does not have a single friend in that room.

They all take turns introducing themselves and reveal how long they’ve been in relationships. Nene starts and whatever. Claudia admits to the group that she was married before and it disappointed her family. That’s sad to hear. Kandi’s friend Gocha (Go-shay) has been in a relationship for almost a year. Porsha says that she’s in a long distance relationship and Claudia puts her relationship on blast.

Porsha was in a relationship with a married millionaire from Nigeria and he has 20 other Porshas…and she doesn’t mean the car. The SHADE!!! I live!

It’s Demetria’s turn and she announces that she’s been in an on again, off again relationship with Roger Bobb. Gocha tells Demetria that she dated Roger Bobb during their off again period. Oh, Lord. Here we go. Cynthia said it best:


Demetria gets up and walks out of the party and Cynthia follows her. Demetria believes Gocha (I’m sorry, every time I type and read that girl’s name I’m reading it as “Gotcha”) is lying. Everybody else is questioning Roger’s motives to keeping them so private but Kenya stands up for Demetria and says that he did claim her as his lady. Demetria says that they were together during the time that Gocha says they were together, but in the party, didn’t Demetria confirm that they were not together at that time? I’m confused.

Well this was an interesting episode. I, personally, cannot wait for tonight’s episode. I’ve been  hearing for months that Claudia read Nene for filth in Puerto Rico and tonight we finally get to see it. YAASSS!
