Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Recap: Head Doctor, Ratchet Mama Joyce & Friendship Ends [Part 2]

And they’re back!

Part deux of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion starts with everyone except Porsha, a scepter and a bullhorn! No one looks happy including Andy. The props have been returned to their toy box and Porsha has been placed in time out (permanently). And the ringleader & instigators that hyped Porsha up have been given a stern scolding.

It’s the quiet after the storm and I can’t help but feel a moment of silence for a fallen idiot soldier is in order. A fool soldier who laid her Bravo career on the line for manipulative bitches that don’t give a rat’s ass about her. Porsha’s inappropriate behavior left the “po chile” demoted with no chance of  reappointment! *waving* #ByeFelicia

Andy starts with a PR statement: The network does not condone physical violence blah blah blah. When did Bravo become so policy driven? Viewers have witnessed many violent attacks at other reunions and no one was sent home or fired. Andy, asks the ladies, what happened. Kenya explains the back and forth argument that lead up to the assault. Nene, Phaedra and Kandi chime in to advocate Porsha’s personal space was violated and she was provoked. Cynthia disagrees and states she doesn’t feel like Porsha was under attack (in a physical way) and women should never resort to violence. Cynthia is not only beautiful but intelligent. Phaedra is a lawyer and co-signing violence? No wonder she can’t win a case to save her life!

Kenya said it best “Violence against women on any level is wrong!” Exactly, that’s the bottom line, period. Kenya spills the tea on how the “gang up” phone calls go down prior to the reunions. She reminded Nene she called her last year prior to the reunion to discuss going after Phaedra! We got an education on these planned “take downs” from last week’s reunion recap. Read part one of the reunion recap here.

RHOA

Moving on…..

A montage of Nene and Phaedra’s faux “friendship” is shown which includes scenes of Chuck “cocktail sausages” Smith. Remember Chuck (Mynique’s husband) from earlier episodes when he visited Athens, Georgia with his home town gals pals Phaedra and NeneChuck “cocktail sausages” Smith dated both Kandi and Phaedra. The clip also shows Nene referring to Phaedra as the “head doctor” and “dick surgeon.”

Both Kandi and Phaedra defend themselves against Chuck’s disparaging remarks about them. “I don’t understand why he was trying to malign Kandi and I,” Phaedra said. NeNe apologizes for spreading the “head doctor” rumor about PhaedraPhaedra immediately starts lying by saying the “head doctor” comment was never a rumor and no one knows her by “head doctor.” Ms. Moore quickly reminds Phaedra she was referred to as the “head doctor” in recent legal documents. She’s referring to Angela Stanton’s ex-boyfriend, Leonard Holland’s deposition. In his statement, he’s quoted as saying “she [Phaedra] is known as a head doctor. She is very good at giving head.” Read our report here. Ooops Phaedra! Phaedra throws out her favorite insult about Kenya can’t get a husband. I wouldn’t brag too much Phaedra, “your clean man” is NO prize!

RHOA

 

Mama Joyce joins the housewives on the couch and she was in a rare form. According to Twitter, Ms. Joyce was swigging on the “brown liquor” in her dressing room. She’s already extra but was way over the top last night. Clips of her ratchet behavior this season are shown. Andy tells her she looks great and commends her for losing 40 pounds which she attributes to stress. Joyce comments about Kandi and Todd’s relationship. She still doesn’t like Todd because he’s a “hundrednaire” and she raised a “millionaire.” Mama Joyce is obsessed with money, Kandi’s money in particular and not ashamed to say it. Joyce feels a sense of financial entitlement owed to her for raising Kandi. Whenever she’s questioned about taking advantage, she throws out a list of sacrifices she’s made for her daughter. That’s a manipulative and dirty tactic! She brags about the life of luxury she’s living,  all on Kandi’s dime. When Andy asked Joyce, does she work, her response was:

“No, I don’t have to. Now let me get you straight…mama still got bonds, mama got a house that’s completely paid off and security and money in the bank…thank you very much! And mama got every kind of diamond that you can to think of …AMEN!” 

RHOA

Then Kandi steps in and sets the record straight about her mother’s financial situation and their past problems. Kandi explains how Mama Joyce had credit cards in her name which Kandi had no knowledge of. And Mama Joyce spent (Kandi’s) money excessively on gambling and the Home Shopping Network! Kandi and Todd’s wedding is scheduled in one week (at the time of the reunion), hopefully Kandi can keep her ratched mama sober enough not to embarrass her on her special day.

Next in the hot seat are Cynthia and NeNe’s friendship. The ex-BFF’s had a falling out after NeNe called Cynthia’s husband, Peter Thomas a “b*tch” during the Mexico trip. That was the beginning of the end for their friendship. The couples made up months ago but old wounds were reopened after the show aired. Since the show aired the women have not spoken. Only taking to Twitter and their blogs to hurl insults, primarily Nene.

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 11.14.09 PM

Cynthia is visibly shaken and hurt as she says  “I see so many of her friends come and go and I feel like at the end of the day, there’s a sisterhood there.” Poor Cynthia, she thought her friendship with Nene was genuine. “There’s a love there but I never felt a respect is there,” Cynthia said as she wiped her tears. It must have been difficult for Cynthia to come to terms with realizing their friendship was a one-way street. Cynthia was no more than NeNe’s lapdog. Cynthia is torn up in emotions while Nene rolls her eyes, pouts her lips and shows zero emotion over her “friends” pain. Nene’s behavior illustrates she’s a heartless b*tch at the core of her being. And clearly a friend to no one but herself!

Cynthia tells Nene:

“I’m not sure if she’s even aware she can be shady. Not friendly, not inviting. I read her blog going in on me. If you say anything slightly demeaning, she feels attacked.”

RHOA

The other ladies add their two cents and the sentiment across the board is Nene does not consider Cynthia’s feelings.

NeNe has walls up and is using every defense mechanism to excuse her role in the destruction of the friendship. She tells Cynthia she’s been a good friend and doesn’t know where all of this is coming from. Really Nene….girl bye!

RHOA

The episode ends with Cynthia expressing their friendship has come to the end of the road. THANK GOD, Cynthia has finally seen the light!

Stay tuned for part three of the reunion airing next Sunday. The men will join their wives on set. Apollo talks about his legal drama and Peter pulls out his own peach.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Now, exactly what excuse is Kenya going to give for not having a boyfriend there? Oh, that’s right, he’s in Africa. Kenya’s dress is a mess, especially in the front when she has to “hoist” it up!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      He actually is in Africa. He is in Lagos, Nigeria.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        If she has a boyfriend then why is she not having a baby with him, instead of looking everwhere for sperm? I don’t buy it for one minute.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Nene admitted meeting him. Even though she had to be forced to admit it.

          • And it’s funny how Nene now wants to act like she didn’t understand him and doesn’t believe that was Kenya’s boyfriend. Why didn’t she say that last year?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Maybe because of Walter???

          • Yea that could be it but she did meet him. It just amazes me how Nene changes to quickly.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yes the real flip flopper….

  • WestCoastFeed

    “The Moose has spoken.” Best shade of the night.

    • RonnieIsBack

      The very best!!!!!!

    • Babson_Chick

      I agree!!!

    • Hey West….I loved it!!!

  • Raine Woman

    Mama Joyce is the latest example of what a small amount of fame and recognition can do to a person.
    I have no words for Nene’s behavior. Her face sums it up perfectly.
    Great recap, Doc!

    • Thanks Raine!! Hope you’re having a great a day.

      “Mama Joyce is the latest example of what a small amount of fame and recognition can do to a person.”<–Isn't it sad to watch. She really disgust me. And to see Kandi's country ass giggling about all of it was too much for me.

      • Raine Woman

        I don’t know if disgust covers it for me. Horrifying, maybe. And let’s face it, all HWs on all franchises are unbelievable at times; but I’ve never seen such a display from a Mother. What was the big, fancy jewel she was claiming to own? They didn’t subtitle her when she was bragging about that.

        • LOL–That piece of 18 carat crap she shoved in Andy’s face was a padparadscha sapphire….or so she claims.

          • twifan2

            Ah what? o.0

          • Raine Woman

            I call Bullshit!!!! I don’t know if MJ drinks or not but that woman is drunk with fame.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Would one buy that on a television show, perhaps???

          • Babson_Chick

            probably or in your local pawn shop

          • Babson_Chick

            I thought it was a psychedelic sapphire!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            You are probably closer to the truth!!!! LOL!!!!

          • Babson_Chick

            I think so too – she must be on something since Kandi said she doesn’t drink. (maybe she’s a closet drinker) Quick lock the closet!!

          • It might as well have been, that crazy old goat has multiple personalities inside of her all screaming to get out….LOL!

          • Babson_Chick

            Wicked funny there Doc!! “old goat” is perfect!

          • thank you kindly! 🙂

    • Babson_Chick

      Yes!!!!!

  • twifan2

    Andy & Kray Kray need to GO!
    PULEEZ! They don’t condone violence, yeah right!
    Be ‘playful’ with the scepter! :/
    IF they don’t ‘condone’ violence then the clause for the housewives to be physically harmed should be taken out of the contracts by the producers. The housewives should not sign until they have that clause removed.
    But ratings mean $$$ smh :/

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Truth!!!!!!!!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      What clause are you talking about? There’s a clause saying the housewives can be physically harmed?

      • twifan2

        The Housewives agree/sign to be physically abused by their cast members and not sue them or the production company.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I don’t believe that. Where is the evidence that exists?

          • twifan2

            Nene eluded to it in the clip-at 6:19.

            Then there is the negotiation that went down between the HW Melbourne.
            http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/the-real-housewives-of-melbourne-set-their-own-rules-about-catfights-20140219-3302w.html

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m sorry, but you are going to have to show me the contract with the exact wording before I will believe this.

            I can’t hear videos on my computer sorry.

          • twifan2

            Sorry, Bravo will not let the contracts be made public.
            I do believe there is a clause in their contracts concerning that. Too many fights between the women for there not to be lawsuits filed between them.
            Have you tried a headset to listen to the audios on your comp?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Well Kenya just put paid to that.

          • twifan2

            The police are the ones that filed charges after Kray Kray didn’t.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She filed the report.

          • twifan2

            She gave them a report when they got there, but she didn’t file it. The police did.

  • Harmony McClintock

    Kenya can try to tie in violence against women, and discribes herself when bringing dumb props to cover some of her SL lies. I used to think she was fun, and her drama may be great for the network, but not reality. This show has changed, and honestly Momma Joyce was really hurtful and disrespectful to her supporting daughter again on national tv. It was not cool to see her mom take credit for all Kandi’s hard work. Personally my daughter de we me anything except be a good person. Seems like Andy could have handled the fight better, and after he sent her home makes aPR announcement she couldn’t continue. Another thing who cares if Phaedr was a head dr. In school? We dont harp on Nene being a stripper, so the head dr. Thing even if in court documents, I mean really?!? Cynthia and Nene was a messy deal. The viewers are smart enough to see what peter is doing. Peter wants a spinoff and had to be heard and seen this season to do so. The over-ridding producer driven nonsense has got to the level of this.

    • twifan2

      Thank you Harmony! 🙂
      HW Atl has gotten too trashy now.
      Kray Kray should have been sent home also.

    • Hey Harmony…glad you’re here.

  • RonnieIsBack

    when Peter takes out the peach I will lose it..Uncle Ben is hella funny…
    Nene was busted…she knows she starts most of this chit and have flunkies do her dirty work. Kenya and Marlo refused so now she’s mad…get over it Moose.
    The fugly looks on her face told a telling story…..
    Moose is nasty.
    The Moose has spoken..then Moose replies. Yes she has….LMAO.

    • “The Moose has spoken..then Moose replies. Yes she has….LMAO.” Oh Lawdy!!! Hee hee hee

      • RonnieIsBack

        I loved it. And Moose claimed it like “yeah dayum right!” which made it all the more funnier…hehehhehe

        • Sara

          She’s actually proud to be referred to as a moose, now you know she’s beyond repair. NeNe sounds jealous and silly. She usually does and I’ve not really minded, but against Cynthia she seems more exaggerated. I believe Cynthia is truly hurt by NeNe’s treatment. For NeNe to treat a friend like dried poo on her shoes is JUST LIKE NeNe. I wish that Cynthia wasn’t as upset by it. She should know, NeNe is the greatest thing that ever happened to Atlanta.. to black women.. to women of Atlanta..heck, to women in ALL of America. There’s no way anyone will ever measure up to NeNe’s greatness.. never mind that it’s all in NeNe’s head.

          • twifan2

            The next sound you hear is Nay Nay’s head deflating 😀

          • LMAO!!!!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap as always!!!!

    • Hey Ronnie….good morning! Thank you.

  • Babson_Chick

    Oh thank goodness I made it here safely as I called Nene a moose on ROL and a guy called me out on that – among other things that I needed to grow up (if he only knew). Even Cyn called her a moose. lol.

    IMO DA MOOSE said it all last night “We done been moved on” “We done been travelin” “We done been to dinner” “We done been to drinks” “We done squashed it”. Seemed to me she didn’t want to discuss anything and the last pic above says it all!! Great recap Doc!!!

    • Hey Babs….thank you! Nene is that type of person. When she knows she’s wrong she shuts everyone down and is dismissive. Personally, I loathe the woman. To be a MOOSE and have the nerve to act like she’s some demure princess sickens me. Her eye rolling and neck popping was all I could take last night. How anyone can call that “thing” a friend or a likable person is beyond me. What she does to one, she will do to all.

      • Babson_Chick

        Howdy!! I agree about her actions – no wonder she doesn’t have any friends! LMAO about “demure princess”!! Don’t ya know she’s big stuff now and has her clothing line coming out soon on HSN – can’t wait!! …….snicker snicker

        • Moose gear, what a freaking joke!! Nene’s 15 mins is up. I don’t see her fans riding for her anywhere.

          • Babson_Chick

            She does have hardcore fans like I said above – kinda scary!!

          • I’m really shock because I don’t recall seeing one supportive tweet for her last night. Well, even Leona Helmsley had fans.

          • Babson_Chick

            maybe some of her fans don’t know how to tweet

          • noarguingwithstupid

            “Moose Gear”–hilarious!!!! I cannot wait to see these “fashions”!!

          • All pieces made with camouflage print coming to an Academy near you!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Those faces are killing me….

        • twifan2

          She better keep making them, because once she starts with the botox she won’t be able to. 😀

          • RonnieIsBack

            I believe she is already getting botox in the forehead…

          • twifan2

            She needs it in her lips!

          • RonnieIsBack

            yassssss!

          • She does Botox on a regular basis and was forcing her brymaid to get it for her wedding. Personally,I think Botox is the culprit for the blood clots in her lungs.

        • MOOOOOO!! LOL!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Klump Klump Clonk..Mooooooooose!!!!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            You reminded me–Moose Dance Tonite!!! So glad I am going to be busy watching paint dry instead.

          • Babson_Chick

            Oh I have to watch it – so much fun – have the popcorn, choc and the wine is chillin.

          • twifan2

            I hope Danica doesn’t have to drop out, giving Nay Nay an extra week! >(

          • Babson_Chick

            Me too – I’m thinking they just keep Moose around for entertainment but it’s time to go.

          • twifan2

            Mooooose has left the building!

          • Babson_Chick

            Can’t wait for those headlines!

          • WestCoastFeed

            I don’t understand how she managed to last this long.

          • twifan2

            Paid callers 😉

          • WestCoastFeed

            I guess so, or fanatics like the ones that kept Bristol Palin on.

          • Babson_Chick

            Agree!! The judges are giving her “sweet scores” which I don’t understand – entertainment purposes I guess – but that’s not right – they’re very strict and critical with others.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She does have a huge personality and I guess that has wowed them to some extent.

          • twifan2

            That’s all she has on the show because she CAN’T dance!

          • Babson_Chick

            That’s what they keep saying – huge, ah personality but this is a dance competion and not a “ho down”.

          • I hope MOOSE stomps her way out the door tonight!

          • Moose Stump! Tidal wave…….

    • Sara

      Nene cares about no one but Nene, and she’s been a sour faced bump on the reunion couch. She’s something else, wanting to deal with Cynthia privately on a reality show reunion! I’m glad both Kandi and Andy called her out, but Nene is above it all. She should be gone next season but she brings the ratings, so she’ll be back, even if it’s ‘beneath her’. Of course Nene knew who Phaedra was, they just weren’t friends because of the age gap. So why not say that, instead of pretending that you didn’t know she existed, Nene? It’s very Clinton-esque; :”it depends on your definition of ‘as'”.

      • Babson_Chick

        Good points!! She’s so proud of being the only orig. left but she helped run the others off by her nasty comments, etc. because she wants all the attention.

        • Sara

          Thank you. I never thought we would see the day Cynthia finally stands up to Nene, and I’m glad it happened. She hit the nail on the head too – Nene’s problem isn’t even that she’s loud, nasty, and a hood rat, it’s that she expects behavior in others that she isn’t willing to give them herself. As far as Linnethia is concerned, no one else can get in people’s faces, throw shade, or criticize, but she can do as she pleases and never admits when she’s wrong.

          • Babson_Chick

            Exactly!! Cyn gained some points for me last night. She seems to be a nice person IMO and no match for Da Moose who likes to run over people and thinks she knows it all.

          • Sara

            She finally grew a pair! I was happy because I like Cynthia. I hope Bravo doesn’t fire her.

          • Babson_Chick

            Yes and yes, yes!! Da Moose wants her gone so we’ll see if she gets her way again!!

  • Dave

    How did these ladies and Cohen just sit there and allow the crazy MJ to speak for what felt like an eternity? Nothing she said made sense and Kandi either just laughed nervously, scoffed, or rolled her eyes. That woman does not need to be sitting on a housewives couch but instead in a psychiatric hospital with round the clock doctors trying to figure out her causes of dementia. She’s delusional on every level and it was really foul to have to watch her hate & bitterness mixed with total denial of personal responsibility. Switching gears- Im surprised no one mentioned the absolutely adorable phone call from phaedra’s son to Andy Cohen. Apollo and Phaedra together is a disaster of epic proportions but their child is the best thing ever!

    • Hi Dave!

      I agree 100%. Mama Joyce playing up to the cameras, and the ladies laughing and encouraging her BS was very disturbing. That’s why MJ thinks she can do whatever she wants, because people placate her, and feed her sense of entitlement. She’s got a house all paid off (by Kandi) and all the diamonds she wants (I’m sure Kandi paid for those, too) and if she opened a credit card in Kandi’s name (ONCE!) and doesn’t care to know when Kandi’s wedding is, so what, amirite? And did you catch the dig at Todd :”if I had a son , I’d want him to be just like Todd”, i.e. be a gold digging hustler (which is what MJ thinks he is, I don’t). Poor Kandi kept her head down so low it was practically in her lap. Couldn’t face her mother or the camera.

      • Babson_Chick

        I can’t believe they gave MJ her own show – which BTW I will not be watching!! She also is so full of herself. Who let her out of the basement??

        • Sara

          I will not be tuning in for that train wreck either. MJ offers nothing and last night she was more obnoxious than ever.

          • Babson_Chick

            Exactly!! That part was hard to watch.

        • Same here! She’s a bit too much for my taste. And her blatant flaunting and misuse of Kandi’s money is truly sad.

          • Babson_Chick

            Talk about a tacky person – I raised my kids the best way I could – they’re very successfull and I don’t expect anything from them – but love and patience.

          • Sara

            Well said– That is how healthy parenting works. I wish someone taught Crazy Joyce that lesson.

          • Exactly!!!!!!

          • Babson_Chick

            Thanks – that’s very nice of you!! Think it’s too late for MJ – they’ve let her crazy self loose.

          • You’re a good mother Babs!

          • Babson_Chick

            Thank you kindly Doc!!

          • you’re welcome! 🙂

          • Raine Woman

            “And her blatant flaunting and misuse of Kandi’s money is truly sad.” Sums it up perfectly…it’s the flaunting of Kandi’s money that kills me.

          • Right and I could tell last night it bothers Kandi also. How someone like MJ could raise a financially responsible child like Kandi amazes me.

  • Sara

    Andy Cohen, we’re not fooled by your ‘not condoning violence’ speech. Did you make Teresa leave the reunion when she pushed you? And how many brawls have we seen on RHONJ, 4 or 5 (not counting the one that happened at a resort in the off season)? He let Kenya bring a fan on last year, and she opened and closed it and flipped it around so well, she doubled down on a scepter and bullhorn. No way Andy didn’t know about the bullhorn, and he yukked it up with no problem until Porsha lost it.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Sara, there’s been a change in the management at Bravo. The new management does not condone violence.

      • Sara

        Thank you. I was questioning what non-violence policy Andy could possibly be talking about when we saw it in the past.

    • Marsbars09

      Andy is FOS. I can’t wait for Bravo to get rid of his sorry behind.

  • RonnieIsBack

    I cannot believe the jailbird is going to twist his mouth to say to Kenya “I made You”…he really believes his chit?

    • Sara

      Coming from “Mr Clean” that’s rich. When is his court date anyways. Shouldn’t he have been in police custody when the reunion aired.

    • He looks so stupid. Phaedra seriously needs to muzzle that dawg because he’s a wildebeest.

    • Marsbars09

      Hey Ronnie, I was thinking Fake coached him on what to say to Kray. He just sounded too damn polished. LOL!
      And doesn’t Fake look like a character from Star Wars sitting next to Apollo? I forgot the short, bald creature’s name.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Hey Mars….agreed heheheh

  • murlut

    Mama Joyce needs a wake up call. She is a dreadful mother and I don’t care what she says, she is after the money. She is afraid when Kandi and Todd got married, she would be cut off and maybe they should. She went on and on about raising her kids and how she deserves so big paycheck. Well excuse me, you had the kids and it your responsibility to RAISE THEM. They owe you NOTHING.
    I might not like Apollo but he and Phaedra’s son is adorable. That phone call was just the cutest.
    Now on to Kenya. Well she has a new BFF in Cynthia. Maybe someone needs to clue Cynthia in that RESPECT is earned. She is useless. She adds nothing to the show. She has no spine and Kenya can mop the floor with her. I loved that Kenya doesn’t see herself as doing anything wrong. She is a liar, was evicted from her house for not paying, she hired a boyfriend and I am sure has tried to hire more. There is no African Prince, its just another BS lie.

      I had trouble watching everything with Mama Joyce last night, and I honestly don’t know how the other housewives were able to sit there and laugh with/at her. My secondhand embarrassment for Kandi would have caused me to spontaneously combust. MJ was clearly not right mentally AND high out of her mind on something.

      • PREACH!!! It’s hard to respect a “mother” that acts that way. Sad.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Sara! Agreed. I just posted a comment that I would be humiliated to have my mother act a complete fool on national TV.
        Both Kandi and her mama are out of their minds.

    • Hey Murlut. I hope you’re feeling a lot better now.

      “Well excuse me, you had the kids and it your responsibility to RAISE THEM. They owe you NOTHING.”<—-BOOM! That is exactly my point. The kids did not ask to be here, they owe us nothing. It's our responsibility to raise them into healthy cognitive humans then set them free.

      • Marsbars09

        Amen and well said.
        Hi Doc!

        • Thanks….How are you hon?

          • Marsbars09

            I’m unwinding after a long day. After I finish posting I’m going to get something to eat. I’m so hungry!

          • I know the feeling…the fam had leftovers and I had tortilla chips and salsa 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            Hey, whatever’s around, right? LOL!

          • Exactly! I’m watching “Black Ink Crew” now

    • Marsbars09

      Great commentary murlut!

  • twifan2

    Does anyone know when Andy’s contract with Bravo is up?

    • Babson_Chick

      not soon enough!! Cheers sweetie!!

      • twifan2

        I’m curious to see if Bravo does renew his contract.
        CHEERS LUVIE! 🙂

        • Babson_Chick

          he still brings in money for them which is the only nice thing I can say about him :-0

          • twifan2

            And the legal woes. 😉

          • Babson_Chick

            oh yes – that minor detail

    • WestCoastFeed

      I do remember that they extended his WWHL contract for two years. I am going to guess that’s how long his Housewives contract runs, too. But, I don’t know, Bravo made the contract public so you should be able to google it.

      • twifan2

        Ok, thank you WC

      • Why would they extend his contract. We need him gone!!!!!!!

    • Let me know what you find.

  • italiano bambino

    Soooo nene text Kenya to go after fakedra that didn’t suit well for the moose after her reaction I believe it was true

    • Hey sweets! Happy Monday.

      Nene was put on blast last night. First by Kenya then by Cynthia.

      • italiano bambino

        Hi seuss. The moose gets OFFENDED that Kenya plays dirty. Moose needs a mirror

  • Happywife

    The house that Momma Joyce was bragging about was given to her by Kandi last season. I remember Kandi searching for a new home for mom, but nothing suited her fancy, so Kandi gave her the house she lived in previously and bought the mansion she currently resides in. Then Momma Joyce immediately made Kandi pay to remodel the home for her. I feel for Kandi. She exhibits all of the signs of an abused child.

    • Hi Happywife. Long time no see, welcome back.

      You are correct and I agree 100%.

    • Babson_Chick

      Exactly!!……and they give her meanself a show??

    • Marsbars09

      Hi happy! How are you doing today?
      Great comment. I agree there is some kind of unhealthy bond Kandi has with her mother.

  • WestCoastFeed

    As a recent comer to Atlanta and since I only saw the final few minutes last night, I may be way off-base on this. But to me Mama Joyce is just an actress who has created a persona for this show. I don’t find her at all credible.

    • Babson_Chick

      So nice of you to say that – instead of crazy.

      • twifan2

        Don’t forget ‘cheerFUL’ 🙂

        • noarguingwithstupid

          And Humble!!

          • Babson_Chick

            Yeppers – that too

        • Babson_Chick

          Yep!!!

    • MJ doesn’t seem that bright (to me) to execute such a clever scheme. And Kandi was on the verge of tears (AGAIN) last night because you know…don’t mess with her man, mama, food and kid. If it was fake I don’t think Kandi would spill the tea about her mother opening credit cards in her name without her knowledge and wasting Kandi’s money on gambling and HSN. JMO

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I totally agree, Doc!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Unless it is a plan that they have created together.

        • True. But a plan of that nature requires a certain shrewdness and practical knowledge that I don’t feel MJ or Kandi possess. They are both rough around the edges and too quick to react emotionally. Kenya on the other hand is pulling off superbly.

          • WestCoastFeed

            As I said, I just haven’t seen enough yet to find her believable as a person.

          • Yes, that’s true. You need to catch up from the beginning.

          • Babson_Chick

            Excellent comment about both of them being “rough around the edges”. I so agree with that 100%++

          • Thanks Babs.

  • SAMRA1116

    Ms. Joyce I have a stick to break on your back—as soon as I’m breathing on my own.
    This woman is so wrong, it’s funny. Um some parents thinks their kids owe them something. I say the only thing mine owe me, take care yourself. Oh and don’t ask me for money.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, Samra. How are you feeling? Did they spring you from the hospital?

      • SAMRA1116

        I’m home still trying to breathe without help. lol
        I’m not a quitter–I’m a fighter to the end. This weather is horrible here.
        Joyce is out of control

        • WestCoastFeed

          Good for you. I’m glad they let you come home.

        • twifan2

          Feel better, SAMRA! 🙂

        • Babson_Chick

          sending you good vibes and blessings

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Samra! I’m so sorry to hear about your health woes. I pray that you endure whatever it is you’re going through.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Hang in there!!!!

        • Tigerlily

          Hi Samara, I hope you are feeling better soon!

          • SAMRA1116

            Thank you 🙁 hope that’s the right sign. Lol

    • Hi Samra! Happy Monday….

      Sorry to hear you’re still not breathing on your own 🙁

      I couldn’t agree more about kids not owing parents anything. Where does Joyce get off running down an itemize bill of her services as a mother? And when does this enormous debt end? Is the loan satisfied after 18 years (the year Kandi) became an adult or when she was 14 years and making mega bucks with Xscape paying all of her mother’s bills. Kandi’s mother needs a good swift kick in the arse for her atrocious behavior.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I took my elderly mother in when she could no longer care for herself. Of course, I loved her, but I also felt indebted to her for being the mother she was. So, I understand where Kandi is coming from.

        • And that’s what a good child does (imo) but Mama Joyce acts like Kandi’s money is owed to her, that’s the difference. MJ makes demands of Kandi and is never satisfied. I recall when Kandi bought the mansion she lives in now, MJ out of the blue told Kandi she needs a new house also. Kandi asked her why because her house was paid for and perfectly fine. MJ just wanted a new house because Kandi bought herself a new house and she knows Kandi never tells her no. MJ finally ended up moving from her (paid home) into Kandi’s old house that Kandi had intended to sell for a profit. MJ is like a spoiled child, taking advantage of her mother.

          • twifan2

            And Kandi is the mother with no boundaries set between her and ‘her child’.

          • It’s a cycle of ignorance.

          • twifan2

            True that 🙁

          • LOL—I just saw this image, it didn’t appear initially….love it!!! 🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            that’s the truth!!

          • Babson_Chick

            bottom line – MJ is so full of it

          • twifan2

            80 Proof full of it. :/

          • Babson_Chick

            at least 80 maybe more – have the feeling she has a stash of “shine” in the closet

          • twifan2

            I’d never ‘come out of the closet’ then! 🙂
            Cheers
            *hic* 🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            we’d find you!!!

          • twifan2

            *hides bottles further back in closet*
            🙂

          • Babson_Chick

            gotta come out some time!! BTW save some for me. First am going to try a new wine, raspberry and choc – 2 of my favs so may not come up for air for awhile.

          • twifan2

            Alrighty, I will. 🙂
            Raspberry & CHOC?! Sounds more like a Liqueur.

          • Babson_Chick

            It’s a new wine – still haven’t tried it – I know, I know, I’m slacking off.

          • Precisely!!!

        • Babson_Chick

          Nice!!

        • Tigerlily

          Good for you for doing the right thing by your Mom West. I would have absolutely done the same for my Mom.
          ITA West. That’s what any child would do. Heck it’s what every child SHOULD do. But It seems Joyce feels like Kandi owes her something, owes her a living for all the ‘alleged’ sacrifices she made for her. (children). & that is just wrong. You don’t have children & push them to become successful just so they can take care of you. You might hope so, but to expect & heck Joyce even seems to DEMAND it! It’s just wrong! Imho.
          & btw does any one know if Kandi has siblings, cause I don’t recall them ever being mentioned by Joyce.

      • SAMRA1116

        Joyce is the energize bunny—Kandi will be taking care of her ALWAYS.
        she’s the type that thinks she’s is due all that and more.
        Is she crazy or is this a joke ???

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! Great commentary! LOL!

      • Hey Marsie! Happy Monday.

        • Marsbars09

          Happy Monday to you too Doc!

          • Hi…how are are ya?

          • Marsbars09

            I’m tired. After I finish posting I’m going to get something to eat.
            How are you?

  • Bonita Gee

    Ok, okay, okay………… I take it back. After seeing Mama Joyce last night on the RHOA Reunion – maybe, just MAYBE an all ”mother’s reality” show isn’t such a good idea……. Mama Joyce is more of a ”hot mess” than I originally thought she was.. ESPECIALLY a ”JUICED UP”, ”LIQUORED UP” Mama Joyce. Sheees!! ………… that was CRAZY and EMBARRASSING to watch to say the least.

    • LOLOL!! You’ve finally seen the light.

      She was on that brown juice too! Acting a damn fool. I had second hand embarrassment for Kandi.

    • twifan2

      Hopefully, mama Joyce’s spin-off isn’t a done deal. No network has picked it up so far.

      • WestCoastFeed

        is Carlos King producing it?

        • twifan2

          No clue, WCF.
          I would have thought it was Todd’s company producing it.

        • Todd Tucker productions.

          • WestCoastFeed

            So he formed his own production company.

          • yes with Kandi.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Using her money? Mama Joyce may have a good reason for being suspicious of Todd.

          • How do you know he used Kandi’s money? Anybody can create a LLC and acquire funding.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just asked. I don’t know.

          • Oh sorry…I thought you were stating he did. I would hope they’re both smart enough to get investors or a bank loan.

          • RealitySuxx

            No, Kandi and Todd’s company’s are separate…any money he makes from his company, is his and his alone.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Good, Thanks again, RS

          • They did mention on the show they will be doing a joint company together.

        • RealitySuxx
          • Hi RealitySuxx… you had previously stated it was Todd’s company doing the show….thanks for the update.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Thanks, RS, and I notice that article just calls Mama Joyce a “maybe.”

          • twifan2

            Bravo MAY let her do the spin-off.
            Or maybe Bravo will buy the show?

          • RealitySuxx

            Yup … I thought it was a done deal … but seems like Tiny was “the highest bidder”??…LOL I think the dynamics changed since my last info update … cause it was definitely supposed to be Todd.

            This is also the first time I have heard of BRAVO being in the mix, so far as not “allowing her” to do the show.

          • Oh wow!!! thanks for the tea….keep it coming!

            Why would Bravo care? I guess if it’s on another network, that’s a conflict of interest. I get it.

          • RealitySuxx

            True…but normally the husbands, the Moms, friends…they aren’t under contract….so this is all so bizarre. I think good or bad, she is polarizing…brings drama…and more importantly….she TRENDS FOR DAYS…each and every time she is onscreen.

            So – something has happened…but I’ve been out of the loop with all my family turmoil … so I’m missing big chunks of information.

            I know she was not on contractor obligated to BRAVO when the season began …

          • LOL–I just commented similar above before I read yours. But yes, you’re absolutely correct. Love her or hate her, she’s polarizing and trends for days. That kind of influence equals dollars. I can only imagine how it’s gone to that crazy woman’s head. She’s probably hired a team now….publicists, manager, stylist….OH LAWD…we’ve created a monster! #NeneLeakesParDuex

          • twifan2

            I think mama Joyce is under contract with Bravo.

          • Nene said only the hw’s are under contracts. The extended family…..kids, moms and husbands aren’t. But legally they may have some claim.

          • twifan2

            Nene says in the clip below that only ‘the girls’ are under contract, not the guys.

          • Right ok, and the extended family aren’t also.

          • twifan2

            That would depend on what Bravo puts in the contract.
            I get the feeling Bravo has Joyce tied up tho. :/

          • Possibly…..that could be the case.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Under PAID contracts. There are unpaid contracts for friends of housewives.

          • RealitySuxx

            …and yanno…it’s probably better in the end that it is NOT Todd producing her. Let it be Tiny or BRAVO … but not her daughter or son-in-law directly.

          • yes ma’am…agree 100%

          • twifan2

            Talk about pulling the nepotism strings AND being the ‘grande dame’ on the set! 😮
            I would NEVER want that headache!

          • Could you imagine that headache? smh!!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Horse-sha is supposed to be on the View tomorrow…unreal…

          • AHAHAHAHAHA!!!!…Let me set my DVR for this mess….thanks for the heads up boo! 🙂

          • RonnieIsBack

            gurl yassss and Andy just tweet he will have his 1 on 1 with Horse-sha this Sunday….

          • Marsbars09

            No wonder! It all makes sense now.
            Oops, I meant RS! How are you doing today? I haven’t chatted with you in a while?

          • twifan2

            Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
            Happy UGH Monday! 😀

          • Marsbars09

            Hi Twi! How are you doing?

          • RonnieIsBack

            Shut the Front Door!!!!!!!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi BG! I’d be humiliated to the soul if my mother was acting crazy on TV the way MJ is.

  • Norrth

    Does anyone else find it interesting that Bravo shows the head doctor clip? It is as if Bravo execs wanted to point out the hypocrisy of the Nene- Phaedra friendship

    • SpringBreeze14

      Yeah and only a fool would believe those two were really friends! I can’t wait til this summer…I’m sure so much tea is going to come pouring out like crazy about this entire cast and I will be here for it! LOL

    • Marsbars09

      I never thought of that, Norrth. Great observation.

  • SpringBreeze14

    LMBO at this review Seuss!!! This show is HOT, STINKING, ATL GARBAGE!!! I just saw the preview for next week with that JAILBIRD Apollonia telling Kenya HE MADE HER!!! REALLY??? I’m even more fascinated with all these lopsided, weaved up hoodrats on Twitter jumping up in my notifications trying to trash Kenya…I didn’t even bother I just blocked their non-grammar, ignorant, welfare, Section 8 behinds…is the educational system in America that FAR behind other countries? It sure seems like it!

    How exactly is Kandi winning? I miss the old Kandi when she was with Xscape. As a matter of fact I miss seeing a lot of these reality stars when they were actually poppin and had talent and class to go along with their careers…these shows RUIN these people’s brands forever…Cynthia may have been a successful model but look at who she married? A loud, mouthy, ignorant no career having man who talks to her like trash. I’m Team Kenya as always but she has unfortunately tarnished her Miss USA image by rolling in the dirt with the dogs of ATL! I hate to say it but it’s the truth. Never would I sell my soul for a dollar. Kandi started out as a respectable chick who we all knew and loved from the group Xscape…she then evolved into this sex crazed, money whore who was DESPERATE for a man, ANY man. Think about it, if Kandi was so successful she would have gotten off this show like 2 seasons ago. Kandi likes the money and she is willing to put her bipolar mother out there for a dollar. Mama Joyce might want to go back and reread the blogs…people dragged her up and down on social media so I don’t know why she acted like people stopped liking her after the episode she was referring to.

    Nene, Phaedra, and Porsha were NOBODIES outside of ATL…yet they seem to be having the most stans right now. LOL. Really? I was discussing this show with my peeps last night and I just think they should cancel this show despite the ratings…almost everyone has become a liability. Even some guy on TMZ who claimed to work behind the scenes said that show has more liabilities than any of them on Bravo. I adore this blog and its editors but really this is my last season watching this mess…I just can’t anymore!

    I feel sorry for Cynthia but then again I don’t…Cynthia should have BEEN read Nene to filth like 3 seasons ago. Maybe she’s trying to keep it classy or maybe, like Kenya, it’s time for Cynthia to leave this show. You can tell Kenya and Cynthia are among the wrong caliber of people…they need to be with a multicultural cast. Seeing as those two are the only real beauties on that show in my opinion, they will NEVER truly be accepted among this cast of animals.

    • RealitySuxx

      “Seeing as those two are the only real beauties on that show in my opinion, they will NEVER truly be accepted among this cast of animals.”
      ~_~_~_~_~
      While I’m tired of the negativity on RHOA – they are no worse than any other franchise. I don’t like a lot of these women, but none do I think are animals … I find that very offensive.

      • SpringBreeze14

        No disrespect to you, but a lot of people are saying this show has stooped to a new low. Some are blaming Kenya, some are blaming Nene, and some are blaming Andy and the whole network. It’s very ironic for Bravo to supposedly be saying that Marlo isn’t their brand when they allow a evil moose like Nene to try to take down others she sees as a threat and a criminal like Phaedra to sit there and hide behind the Bible but yet call another woman a whore and slut. This show has become almost like Basketball Wives Miami and we all see how that went out…

      • Hi RS…..I agree…. all these shows on reality TV involving women have devolved into classless, uncouth, violent trash.

        • RealitySuxx

          They really have … and even with RHOA – I’m getting sick of it..and it’s my “fav”. One I do like, is the one on OWN, Love In The City .. it’s just fun, light hearted … so far so good. That one – and I like Sweetie Pies ….wonder if this means I’m just “getting old” HAHAHA

          • O-M-G!!! I’m so happy you watch both of my favs. I’m a huge “Sweetie Pie’s” fan. Ms. Robbie, I admire and respect that woman very much. I’ve watched from the beginning and it’s so entertaining. Tim and his mama are a hoot. The 1st 2 seasons I could not stand Tim. I thought he was goofy and wasting his mother’s money but he has redeemed himself since. What’s up with him and Janae? And OWN’s ” Love In The City” is awesome! Is it scripted reality? It reminds me of the “Hills” (MTV scripted reality show)?

          • RealitySuxx

            I still don’t like Tim!!! LMAO…and Janae – I think she is the problem in that relationship…let Tim go already. I think they classify Love In The City more of a docu-series .. but I’m cynical – I think they are all somewhat scripted..but I love the show.

          • I use to call Tim, Fat Albert….I’ve never seen a man who works out constantly, has muscles but looks fat and to make matters worse he has a big butt and is knocked knee’d

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! Preach SB! I love your comment on the weave wearing hoodrats harassing you on Twitter. You blocked their ignorant, Section 8 asses.
      I agree Kandi should have left the show after Season 3. There really is no reason for her to be on the show as she is already successful outside of the show. These HW’s shows are for losers and thirsty folk. Cynthia really messed up when she married Peter. As crooked and lowlife as she is, I think Phae is looking for validation and attention from being on TV. Kray is a former beauty queen in need of a career boost, and Porsha is a spoiled, pampered, woman-child in need of attention.
      I’ve always felt Cynthia was miscast for RHNJ. She is too laid back and drama free to be tangling with those battle cats.

      • SpringBreeze14

        LOL! Hi Mars! Mars you hit the nail on the head with everything. I get so tired of these hoodrats jumping in my notifications to defend their ratchet owners Kandi and Phaedra…I don’t deal with too many of Nene’s stans as they seem to be decreasing LOL. the fact that so many people don’t see Phaedra for what she probably really is just to me exposes how naive people are these days, especially women. I would love to see a show about women doing something positive without all the drama…I would watch! It might not have a big fanbase because people love stupidity, but for instance let’s say Peter did a show about building his business in Charlotte, NC. If the show was without a bunch of negative drama I MIGHT would check it out….I’d like to see Kandi mingling with other singers from the 90s…I’d like to see Kenya showing how she produces films and other things she does…I’m just tired of the hitting below the belt atmosphere that is now on this show.

        • Marsbars09

          Well said again! LOL!

    • Hi SB…. thank you….said it here!

      “I’m even more fascinated with all these lopsided, weaved up hoodrats on Twitter jumping up in my notifications trying to trash Kenya…I didn’t even bother I just blocked their non-grammar, ignorant, welfare, Section 8 behinds…is the educational system in America that FAR behind other countries? It sure seems like it!”<—#dead….lmao!!! why do people that, it's so unnecessary.

      I think the show needs Kenya. I personally, don't want to see her go. Nene needs someone to whip her into submission and Kenya is just the person for the job. Cynthia as well. If they keep Cynthia it will be interesting to see where she'll fit in now that Nene is gone. I have a feeling she'll cling onto Kenya. Cynthia is fragile b but I think given the platform she'll stand up to Nene.

      I really appreciate intelligent arguing & I think Kenya, Cynthia & Kandi can provide it without going for name calling. That’s entertainment to me. The rest of them can go home & read some books to improve the vocabulary

      • I would have to agree with this but Cynthia is a bit boring at times.

    Seems Peaches is getting his wish about a little men’s special (rolling my eyes) … Carlos gave an interview on the Jasmine site – and on the last vid – he teases about a men’s special airing before Kandi’s wedding special.

    Besides you can see Nene.Chandra are facially envious of Kenya.Even with all the nips/tucks etc they will never look good.Nene face looks ?.I know Kenya has gotten some work done also,but even before she was gorgeous.Compliments from another gorgeous straight lady.
