The Grammys tried to threaten our Sunday night pleasure of catching the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta in all their glory... TRIED! (I DVR'd dat!!) I just had to see what that pajamas party fight was all about! And I would NOT be deprived! WOULD. NOT.
The latest episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was too much, was it not?!! From Phaedra's youngest boy's ("Let's Make Up A Reason" to have an) over-the-top party to Nene's aspirations to fill Jerry Springer's shoes: concocting fights and messiness galore with that get together to stir up drama, disguised as a pajamas party. It was all just much too much!
The show began with Phaedra and Mr. Dwight meeting at the venue for her son's shindig. I got to give it to Dwight: he knows how to put together a decent party. And that floral blazer had me droolin'! But, really.. Must a mansion, dancers and caterers really be a part of your fam and friends formally meeting your infant?? I know most of this absurdity was Phaedra's idea and all. But, Mr. Dwight... As a friend!..Can you let the sista know when she gotta cool it? Please??
And did y'all peep his chuckled reaction to Kandi's engagement (ring)? Really. What was that all about?!
And while we talking bout things "peeped"... How 'bout when Daddy Dwight almost dropped Phaedra hefty ass at the end of their dance routine!! That dip almost turned into something Phae Phae ain't quite plan for.
Prior to attending the party, Cynthia sat her husband, Peter, down to fill him in on the ladies' day at the vineyard (last episode) and the drama that took place.
Miss Cynthia.. Miss Cynthia... Regardless if she knows it or not, (like she told Mynique about being READ..), but she is messy as all hell!! Now, being messy is one thing. But being messy and not even being a quarter -way ready for repercussions!!??? I cannot deal with that one.
In that situation Kandi was simply trying to say that everyone has a past. Just because Todd's past relationship with that lady's friend didn't go well, that does not mean Todd's current relationship with Kandi will experience the same hardships. Just like Peter in his past dealings. Doesn't mean that those past issues will present themselves in his relationship with Cynthia. Point blank. Point MADE!
So, Miss Cynthia got her hubby all in his feelings because he thinks Kandi is just randomly talking shit 'bout him all because her dude (Todd) was put on blast.
Like I said: Messy!
And before I touch on the PJ Party, I gotta speak on Ms. Kenya: she visited a fertility specialist and sperm bank to see about birthing a baby.
And can I just say: She is so full of shit! How the hell she stay hollerin' about this damn African oil tycoon, but she's going to get sperm from a damn bank?! Distance is not an issue when you have Oil Tycoon Dolla$$, okay! And I can imagine (leisure) time isn't much of an issue either. Where the hell is this (imaginary) man?!!
Now, about this party... The female "model" at that party...?? (No ma'am!) I know Cynthia is on Time Out and all, but NeNe could have reached out to her for something real and a tad bit firmer on the "model" tip.
And how about Miss Nene strutting all over the damn room?! She was looking cute. That lingerie hid what it needed to hide and accentuated those beautiful legs of hers! But, I still say the all night long struttin' was a bit EXTRA.
Just like her asking lil Miss Porsha to read the first question of the night was a lil on the EXTRA side. Why did she try to put that girl on the spot by asking her to read ANY question card?! She ain't think ole Porsha Porsh knew how to read. Porsha got her on that one. (HA!)
I never could understand why the hell people feel the need to tell unnecessary lies. Just keep your damn mouth CLOSED! AND stay the hell out of other people's business. Especially, if you want your business to remain off the floor.
However, as we all learned, Peter and his stripper pleasures was not the huge fight the network previewed, but it was Mrs. Lanethia Leakes with her mention of Kenya and Christopher Williams' lady's argument at the vineyard. Does/did ole Chris Willy deny the extent of his lady's position in his life?.. That is the question. (Well, that is their question on that night. My question is: Why'd Mrs. Leakes act so surprised at the conclusion??)
Once NeNe brought the topic up, Kandi was like, "Oh Lawd!" She knew it wasn't going to go well. Everyone knew that wouldn't go well. Kenya is a hothead. That's all we needed for an indication that things would go way left. Once Christopher stood and began to approach Kenya's side of the room??... DISASTER!!
Now... As far as things escalating physically... We can thank Chris Williams for that.
Yes. Kenya was advancing to his seated boo (that prob don't want none with ole Kenya) but Chris grabbed her by the elbow. That is a no no. Especially after his boo sat there taunting Kenya, "Don't try to back peddle now.."
Given the situation, I can imagine Kenya probably felt like a caged animal. She had Nene, who is supposed to be a good friend of hers, chastising her as soon as she came through the door and then putting her on the spot about what she said and hollering "Keep it REAL!!!". Then she has Christopher Williams, a grown ass man, standing up out of his seat and advancing towards her side of the room to get shit straight. She probably considered him a friend of hers as well. So, she has two "friends" jumping on her. Then, we got a bitch she don't even know sicin' shit and yapping in the background like Kenya scared to own up to what she said.
So, yeah.. She had to get at somebody in that room. It wasn't going to be Chris, because although he is looking all elderly and non-comp for a physical altercation, he is still A MAN! Man vs woman fights ain't right 'cause they ain't fair (in most cases). And she wasn't gonna pop off on Nene because Nene a lil thick. Picking a fight with Nene may be a bit risky. She looks like if she get a hold of some hair, it's OVER! Kenya ain't tryna be slung from wall to wall. So, she went the easiest route: A non-"friend" that's talking shit.
Christopher was right to keep her from getting within arm's reach of his lady, HOWEVER.. Physically grabbing her was WRONG! He could have simply stepped in her way... He could have told Nene or somebody else to get her... (Whatever happened to "Y'all better get this bitch!"?).. He could have tried reasoning with her by talking the situation down... But you know, he came at her sideways from the jump. And I get it, he felt disrespected by her first so he came out the gate with "I don't know what kind of medication you on.." But c'mon now! Grabbing on a lady?? A No No!
Then, Apollo straight blacked out on Kenya's assistant, who says he suffered a cracked rib from the attack. An attack that I believe could have been avoided (from what was aired). Apollo says that Kenya's assistant hit him in the eye.. I don't know what y'all saw but it appears as though the assistant was on his back and there were several seconds of Apollo standing there and the dude on his back during which there was no punches thrown from either party then suddenly Apollo tries to choke dude out. And we all know what happened thereafter.
Chaos. Pure chaos.
And stir, Nene did!
