RHOA_Kenya Moore_RHOA Reunion Season 7

After Nene’s outburst in response to Kenya’s comparison of she and Apollo’s playful interaction as the same as Nene’s and Peter’s, Andy turns over the floor to Peter. When asked did he and Nene ever flirt, he responded, they were playful but never inappropriate. He says all of them have playful personalities. He also said he text gate was some made up bullchit that folks ran with and they all owed Kenya an apology. Gregg wanted further reassurance so he asked Peter point blank did he and Nene flirt with each other. Peter said “no.” Andy asked about what Porsha inferred regarding Peter and his waitresses. Peter pointed out that Porsha has a reckless mouth and she is lying. He said that if he was going to cheat on his wife, it wouldn’t be with a cocktail waitress, but rather it would be with someone of the caliber of J-Lo.

Next, Bravo shows clips of the young and the sexless marriage of Todd and Kandi, one year later. Todd mentions that Mama Joyce has apologized for her disparaging remarks made about his mother. Kandi pointed out that the apology was made prior to Sharon’s death. Todd said he felt it wasn’t sincere. They also discuss how they don’t have many ‘Kandi Koated Nights’ in their household but they are working on it. When nosy Andy asked when was the last time they had sex, they replied two days ago and the couch applauded. Todd lights up when asked about plans for a baby. He says it’s coming soon. I think Kandi is already pregnant. She says her boobs are huge due to the hormones she is taking.  Todd then discusses how he found out his mother had died. She had a stroke. That has to be simply unbearable. Gregg attended and spoke at the funeral. Phaedra, who couldn’t attend due to a speaking engagement, helped with the funeral arrangements.  Kandi and Todd said her death actually made their marital bonds stronger. Todd was chastised by a viewer for not wearing his wedding ring all the time.  Kandi said “whatever.”

All About The Tea_Kandi and Todd_RHOA Reunion_Season 7

The implosion of Nene and Cynthia’s friendship is explored. We see Nene loudly barking at Cynthia about not being a good friend, and “throwing away the damn friendship even though she viewed her as her f*cking sister.” We see Cynthia burning the friendship contract. Although in front of the girls they seemed to have hugged it out, we see in their talking heads, Nene saying “Bye Felicia” to Cynthia and Cynthia receiving the dismissal. Andy asked, did they really break up because Nene called Peter a “bitch.” He gives Nene the floor. She says that after “PeterIsABitchGate,” they were cool. She believes the public and Peter got into Cynthia’s ear and this is why things all of a sudden changed. Nene says all Cynthia had to do was call her and talk with her. 

Nene Leakes_RHOA Reunion

Cynthia says she is going to tell the entire story because she is sick of talking about it. Andy tries to shorten her version, but she stands her ground. Cynthia says Gregg was feeling some kinda way because the public was telling him that he should have manned up and checked Peter for speaking to Nene during her rude behavior at Kenya’s charity event. Cynthia then said Gregg asked her to arrange a meeting between he and Peter on camera so he can address it. Cynthia and Nene thought the meeting would be a calm one. Right. 

Cynthia Bailey_RHOA

As we saw the conversation went to the extreme left when Gregg starting flexing on Peter to prove to his woman Nene that he was not just a butler, but he was a bulldog.  Cynthia said Nene called her in tears afterwards. Later, they all went to celebrate New Year’s Eve and stayed in the same hotel. While on this getaway, Nene threw a lot of shade at her BFF Cynthia in her Bravo blog based on what Cynthia said in retaliation to Nene’s constant criticism of Cynthia for allowing her daughter Noelle date at 14.  Cynthia had said in a talking head that she would rather pick up her daughter and her boyfriend from their dates, instead of picking up a grandbaby. We all know Nene has grandchildren born out of wedlock. 

Nene Leakes_RHOA Reunion

Cynthia felt instead of having to read Nene’s feelings on a blog when they were staying at the same hotel on holiday together, they should have discussed it. She even sent Nene a text that night. Cynthia says Nene also tried to get her fired.  Nene denied this.  Kandi said “oh yes you did Nene.” Bravo rolled the footage of Nene telling Andy that Cynthia needs to be off the show. Well a hit dog always bark as they say in the South and Nene started over talking Cynthia saying she wasn’t a good friend and says once again, you’re right, I’m wrong. Andy asks if there is any chance of reconciliation. Cynthia says she wishes Nene well.  Nene wishes Cynthia wells. Andy says that doesn’t sound hopeful. Nene tells him to respect her statement (basically STFU, Andy).  Moving on.

RHOA Reunion

Next we go to Thotville and Bravo shows countless clips of Porsha half-dressed celebrating her freedom to twerk because she is no longer the obedient ministering wife of Kordell. We also see clips of Nene and Phaedra calling Porsha a thot and she just thinks it is oh so cute. Andy even shades her choice of clothing. Nene says she now dances in strip clubs. Porsha, again laughs and thinking this is just awesome. Even the viewers write in and say she has changed and has become the ringleader of shady behavior. Andy tries to flip the switch and discuss her grandfather, Civil Rights Activist Hosea Williams. Porsha said she saw the movie ‘Selma’ with her family and it brought back memories of her marching with her granddad while people “throw’d” rocks at her. I Just Can’t.  #GurlBye

Porsha_RHOA Reunion

Andy discusses Puerto-Read-Co. Kandi confirms that yes, indeed Claudia read Nene for filth on that day. Claudia says she was defending herself because Nene was hitting below the belt with whore-isms and racial slurring. She feels Nene didn’t have much of a comeback with her vocabulary so she used what she could.  Nene said she was in the heat of the moment. A viewer asked how could Nene say such a racial disgusting thing and call Claudia a half-breed. Nene says she didn’t think Claudia minded that remark because she is half black and half white. This chick. Anyway, Nene  apologized to the audience. Claudia tells Nene that she doesn’t need her apology because she knows who she is and one thing she doesn’t need from Nene is validation.  Bloop.

Claudia Jordan_RHOA Reunion_RHOA

Andy says the ladies had a ball in the Philippines because Nene wasn’t there. #ShadyBoots. Andy asked if Kenya and Phaedra remained friends, after their prayer circle/hand holding moment. Really Andy? Kenya points out that for the moment they were and supported each other’s functions. However, when you watch the show and now come to the reunion, it rehashes a lot of bad feelings. Phaedra says it is all in the past. Nene says she doesn’t regret going with the ladies to the Philippines for kum-ba-yah.

Phaedra Parks_RHOA Reunion_RHOA

And now the Nene meltdown. Dr. Jeff joins the couch. Nene is frosty towards him. He places his hand on her back and says “I have your back, and have not betrayed you.” The ladies felt that the only reason why the group therapy session arranged by Nene didn’t go well was because Nene couldn’t control it. Dr. Jeff mentioned he had counseled Nene and Greg’s families on several occasions.  However he wanted the ladies to know he was there for all of them, not just Nene. He wanted everyone to have an opportunity to express themselves. Nene says everyone wanted to be a victim and talk about how she bullied them but nobody cared about what she has gone though.   And then she tells us: her mother gave her away, her father never claimed her and she was in an abusive relationship. 

Nene Leakes_RHOA Reunion_RHOA

Claudia says no one knew Nene’s background and they could have used the group therapy session to explore it. Dr. Jeff says Nene is in a lot of pain. Nene is quiet.  Porsha says that she felt the group session was a gang up and then tries to rewrite history.  Kandi shuts her down and say that Nene was the one who started the fighting when she turned on Dr. Jeff just because he said he was going to be sure the session was conducted in a fair way towards all.  Nene starts shaking.  Nene starts crying.  Dr. Jeff asks is there anything Nene would like to say. Nene says no. Kenya tries to comfort Nene by telling her that nobody is against her and they do not want to fight with her anymore. She also says that she and Nene have something in common with abandonment issues which is why in the beginning they were friends and she cares for her. 

RHOA_Reunion__Part_3_Nene Leakes

Nene stands up to leaves, with Cynthia, Phaedra, Porsha and Dr. Jeff helping her. All the ladies rally around Nene. Kandi had to be asked by Kenya to join in.  Kandi says she is confused. Nene goes to the ladies room. Gregg explains Nene’s background to Andy. Back on the couch with Kenya, Claudia and Kandi, Kenya explains to Kandi that Nene is probably just tired, but it is still baffling to her as well because there have been many times where Nene has mocked her when she spoke about her motherless issues. 

RHOA_NeNe_s_Emotional_Walk_Off (1)

All agreed to show support.  Nene returns after fixing her makeup. Dr. Jeff mentions that Nene feels betrayed by other women who are no longer on the show, who didn’t show any real appreciation for Nene helping them get on TV.  Ok, I guess she and Kim have made up because they are doing the road trip special. Regardless, it seems that Nene needs validation, because she never received it from her parents. The remainder of the reunion is all about verbally hugging Nene and letting her know how great and strong she is. Okay. 

RHOA_The_Back_Story_on_NeNe_Leakes__Mom

As Andy is wrapping up the reunion, Nene asks Dr. Jeff again to admit that he handled the “cowncelling” session wrong. She wanted to hear him say ‘you’re right, I’m wrong.” Instead, Dr. Jeff, with kid gloves, simply tells Nene that if he had known all of her background, any good doctor would have made the necessary adjustments.  Kandi gives an eye roll, Andy asks for a group hug and that is a wrap. We all know how this turned out. Nene is now giving interviews that unmarried women should not allowed on the show. Glad to know she turned a corner. Extreme side-eye. What do y’all think?

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Me thinks…Nene is trying out for a role for a Lifetime Movie…WTF was that????
    I can’t…

    • TopGear

      She staged that breakdown to get people to stop confronting her with the truth and feel sorry for her. When she doesn’t have a comeback all she can say is, ok, you’re right, and I’m wrong. I don’t have a job, or any money. She’s just tryin to be funny and change the subject. Can’t own up to anything. Bye wig.

      • RonnieIsBack

        And yet they are stil slaming her on several blogs…Nene is done..

      • Bad Barbie

        He attempt failed. This was actually the nail in the coffin. People were flaming her on Twitter. She lost more fans last night that is for sure.

  • RonnieIsBack

    She is just such a contradiction…and Porsha needs to go….straight to Elementary school and read several books…..

    • WaWaWaWHAT!

      When Porsha is speaking of her grandfather’s legacy…you can tell that THOT doesn’t know WTF she’s talking about…

      • Bad Barbie

        That is a damn shame. She embodies everything he fought against.

    • Bad Barbie

      It is very sad.

  • Gregg Leakes dropped some deep ish last night. “Faults are like headlights on a car, you can only see the other person’s.” ummm he must be talking about his wife…right?

    • CNN

      Greg just says whatever to please Nene because he’s got a sugar mama. That’s not what he was saying when he called up the radio station demanding his money back and said she was acting brand new which was part of the reason they got divorced.

      • Bingo! Gregg is full of shit. I never fall for his fake pastor zen act. He showed his true colors the night he tried to fight Peter in Mexico over some BS that he knew was BS.

        • Jennymckitty

          I think Gregg is just slightly more intelligent than Porsha.

          • Yes, way more. Gregg reminds me of a con man and con men are usually smart.

          • Bad Barbie

            You misspelled Pimp.

          • cait

            So how did our lovely Juicy and Apollo manage a scam ? I’ve said before that I thought Peter, Dwight and the Leaky Leakes were involved in something nefarious !

        • Bad Barbie

          Greg married a stripper he took off the pole so he can beat it. He has no ink left to save another ho.

      • Bad Barbie

        For real. But they got divorced to scam the IRS.

    • RonnieIsBack

      LOLOL wasn’t that some kuntryfried backwoods logic…

      Moose caught in the headlights is what he was really thinking..but afraid to say it.

    • Bad Barbie

      LMAOOOOO
      His cliches are so 1960’s though.

      • 1960’s just like Geritol Gregg. He thinks he’s a real philosopher. LMAO!

  • CNN

    Nene crying out of one eye was fake as hell. She is obsessed with attention. I was offended when she mentioned Kandi’s brother tragic death as if to minimize the pain. Nene talked about her mother without no tears on Season 1 & 2.

    • Jennymckitty

      Yes. I remember one of her story lines was finding out who was her biological father. I haven’t watched those seasons for years but I think I am remembering it correctly.

      • CNN

        I love how reluctant Kandi was to stand up and tend to Nene’s little outburst. She was like #GirlHaveASeat

        • Jennymckitty

          At one point Kandi actually looked like she had fallen asleep. I felt a bit like a heartless bitch for supporting Kandi’s behavior…actually laughing about it. But I feel justified after seeing Nene’s behavior toward the other women after the reunion was filmed.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            Nene deserves an academy award for her performance. She’s been a bully all along but now that she’s being called out, she boo hoo’s and runs away. Nothing less than I expected from the witch.

      • Bad Barbie

        She took us on the drive to go meet him and all.

    • Bad Barbie

      Didn’t she say that her mother died when she was small though?

  • Yolie

    Greg is Mr. NeNe now! He’s broke as a two broke glasses clung together. His business was a miss, he owed people who used his services, the irs, and financial institutions. They lied about the first house they lived in and almost got evicted. He had his clients to write the checks out in NeNe’s name and never made an effort to do the services the clients paid him to do. They had to run him down.

    • Bad Barbie

      The Leakes have several claims in court.

      • Yolie

        Funny how Phaedra overlooked that in her search but exposed all of Peter’s cases.

        • Bad Barbie

          #JesusFixedIt

          • Yolie

            Her day is coming too. She talking about everyone else’s cases but not her own i.e Angela Stanton.

  • Jennymckitty

    There is poor Porsha, as intellectually challenged as she is, still defending Nene. All the while, Nene is bashing her and actively trying to get her fired. Nene needs to hold onto Porsha like a life preserver. There are that many people in Atlanta who can’t see through her.

    • Yolie

      I can’t stand everybody on this show for pampering Nene. She is the worst! Had it been any of the other ladies she wouldn’t have given a damn. How many times has Kenya talked about her relationship with her mother? Did people gather round to put on this kind of show? People are always tiptoeing around Nene like she’s the second coming.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Which is why I loved it when Kenya made sure to say that she had mother issues and Nene mocked her…

        • Yolie

          But nobody is recognizing Kenya’s pain, only Nene. It amazes me how some posters love to put down Kenya and praise Nene. I don’t get it.

          • Bad Barbie

            You know how it is.

          • Yolie

            Serious double standards.

      • Bad Barbie

        #PLONK! #BLOOP

        For real! On the contrary, when they learned Kenya’s story they used it against her starting with Nene. Baffles me that someone that knows that kind of pain can actually mock instead of identifying with that person. Not that I still liked her but after last night, I like her even less.

        • Yolie

          Hurt people..hurt others.

          • Bad Barbie

            Then cry when they get clapped back.

      • This is spot on!

      • CoolBreeze15

        You are so right! They NEVER showed Kenya this type of compassion. The reason why is because Kenya is a beautiful and intelligent woman who doesn’t let people run over her. They show compassion for Nene because they know she’s already ugly and loud and ignorant. Nene is a stereotype while Kenya is a diamond in the rough.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Nene loves Porsha because Porsha is young and dumb. You can spoon feed anything to Porsha and she’ll fall for it. Nene and Phaedra put her up to fighting Kenya at last years reunion.

      • RonnieIsBack

        And yet still doesn’t care for Porsha because she is still spilling chit about if you are not married you should be allowed on the show…Porsha isn’t married…

        • Bad Barbie

          and sleeps with married men who buy her bags and cars and Nene told us.

  • Great recap, Ronnie! Kandi was seen crying in many episodes this season, always emotional, but as soon as Nene cries, she’s smiling and rolling her eyes….Hahahahaha! I like how Kenya had to ask her to hug Nene. She could care less. I’m proud of Kandi for not falling for Nene’s fake act. Nene rolled her eyes at Kenya when she was getting emotional about her mom, Kandi was very astute to see right through Nene.

    I agree about Kandi looking preggers. She probably is.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks Doc!
      Kandi didn’t fall for the banana in the tailpipe trick…Nene has had it out for Kandi since Season 2 – Tardy for the Party..and just a hater regardless.

    • Bad Barbie

      Kandi sees Nene trying to finesse her way into the victim role again.

      She should have said “Nah f that. You hug her”

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Nene and her fake crying scene with Dr. Jeff was great comedy. I laughed so hard. She was auditioning for her next acting gig. (See Tyler Perry I can play emotional roles) Don’t be surprised if her next role is a drama.

    Kandi can’t even let Todd talk about his Mother’s death without defending her crazy raggedy mom. Saying “I just want it to be clear my mom said that when she was still living.” I just love Todd. Good guy and needs to be in a family that he know his mom would be happy about. Kandi is full of it and puts her mom before her marriage.

    We all saw Nene flirting with Peter when he first got on the show.

  • Jacqui Duffy

    Nene turned the reunion into the “NeNe Show”. I’m not buying it.

    • TopGear

      Agreed. I feel the last part of this reunion was so staged. Nene is sickening. I believe it was scripted so people would have compassion for her. She talked about issues with her mom back in like session 2 or 3 when she went to meet her dad. Now she wants people to empathize on her situation… Yeah right!

      • Bad Barbie

        I would have and I did then. Fast forward it to these past 2 seasons saying that Kenya is broken, doesn’t know what love is and is rotten because her own mother didn’t want her- lost me there! You would think she got over her own demons to be so condemning.

    • RonnieIsBack

      She sure did.

    • Bad Barbie

      Me neither. I guess she’s been scanning her social media and sees how fans got her number this season.

  • honeybunny

    The entire season was BEYOND BORING!!! (minus claudia’s clap back in Puerto Rico) Nene’s performance/audition was a failure. I’m dissapointed in cynthia falling for it. Looks like Dr Jeff added himself to the list of bootylickers. Kandi is the only person that could see through everyone’s BS

    • CoolBreeze15

      I agree, there were very few episodes I enjoyed. Too much Phaedra and Porsha. Kandi’s storyline was boring too.

  • Dani-K

    Thank you for recapping the last reunion, Ronnie! I couldn’t watch the whole “let’s hug Nene because she is sooo vulnerably strong” show.

    • RonnieIsBack

      YEah it was a big mess….I loved Kandi’s reaction however…Priceless. She was like This is some Bullchit!

      • Bad Barbie

        Yep! That was great. Next season is Nene goes after Kandi for that. She wont get far. There is very little that she can come for Kandi about and that “I’m Rich Bish” ish wont be one of them. LOL

  • Bad Barbie

    Nene is full of nonsense. She must have realized that the audience got her number and her fans by landslide are declining so now she turns to the melodrama about her past issues. Whatever! I don’t fell bad for her AT ALL and only because the way she treats everyone else. AND not for a minute I believe that these issues have anything to do with the way she acts. Someone with abandonment issues wouldn’t be this arrogant and pretentious on the contrary she should have inferiority complex … then again, superiority complex could be inferiority disguised. You would think she would be more humble. Now she wants the others to have gratitude towards her because she made them relevant? LOL

    IF in fact this is her “pain” then why does she say the things she does about Kenya being abandoned by her mother? Nene is the same person that has gone on the show, interviews and social media saying that Kenya is rotten and this is why not even her own mother wanted her and that she doesn’t know what love is. How is it Kenya’s fault that her mother was such a bad mother, after all we don’t choose our parents. Kenya was right that they have that in common but Nene probably sees that as a threat rather than something to bring them together because she has to split the “victim” card.

    Cynthia doesn’t need to take ish from Nene and should have never allowed it. Seems like Nene is now mad because she doesn’t want to be her soldier anymore. Typical. I know someone like this, when you don’t march to her beat, she cuts you off. I don’t do well with people like that. Stay in your lane and we riding parallel, I only follow my gps.

    Claudia didn’t let Nene run her down. Good for her. This is why Nene is dismissive towards her and of course, that brings the squad 3 for 1 combo special Porsha and Phaedra. Claudia is too clever and quick with the mouth. They can’t keep up.

    Porsha- wtf is wrong this chickenhead? She marched when in 1987 when she was 5? I think Porsha is legit slow. She can’t be normal. She is doing the most to get her peach back but she really has nothing to offer to this show and according to Nene, they should fired all the single ladies.

    Phaedra- zzzzzzzz

    Kandi- Kandi doesn’t buy Nene’s act. She’s been around her long enough to know that Nene is nobody’s friend and has issues with every single person that has come on this show. She also knows that she airs out your issues to take you down. I don’t blame her for not hugging her and all that. Now, she needs to handle her momma in the same way. Stand your ground about that Kandi or soon you will be divorced.

    Kenya- life twirls on? be about it then.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Love it! Co-sign
      Nene is a nasty beast and got called on her BS. Even Andy couldn’t help her this time. He had P Diddy on WWHL to try to talk up how Nene is his favorite…please, this coming from a man with three baby mamas….Nene so foul she didn’t even tweet or call in to say “thanks P Diddy, that’s my boy…because the chit is so staged…

      • Bad Barbie

        LMAOOOOOOOOO Oh, didn’t see that.

        But interesting!

        FunFact: Puffy is Wendy Williams #1 enemy and the reason why she was fired from Hot97 when she implied that he was the “gay rapper” that unraveled a lot of drama with death threats and all.

        • RonnieIsBack

          that explains ALOT.

      • CoolBreeze15

        So Diddy likes this coon too?

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Amen

  • Bad Barbie

    BTW- if Nene so tough… why she blocked me on Twitter? LOL

    • RonnieIsBack

      Join the club..she blocked me when I showed that video tape of the news talking about how what crooks she and Greg are…and Cynthia retweeted it lol

      • Bad Barbie

        WHET?? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I just died.

  • TartLemon

    I’m not sure I’ll be able to post here for a while. These current comments about NeNe’s sincere pain are callous and cold. Frankly, I feel personally attacked since being in much the same situation. Only now, in my 60’s have I learned I was fighting all my life to mask the pain.

    Surfing on the rhythms of the Universe and feeling like I wasted my life. Laugh all you want, I guess; continue the ambush. Glad I’ve realized it, but wishing it didn’t take so long.

    • Jennymckitty

      I’m sorry, Tart. I am usually the first to feel other’s emotional pain and I rarely question others motives or whether they are sincere when they express pain. I’ve questioned myself…why didn’t I feel this was sincere? I don’t hate Nene. I watched this show because of her for many seasons. I am very sorry if anything I’ve posted offended you as it wasn’t my intention to hurt anyone with my comments…especially not you. I am also very sorry for everything you have gone through and am glad you came through the other side as a happier person.

    • Hey Tart. Sorry you’ve gone through emotional pain…..did someone attack you here?

      • Bad Barbie

        I don’t get it because there is no post by Tart on this thread where anyone was personally attacking her. SMH

        • I don’t think Tart means it literally. I love her comments and she’s a vital part of this community as well as you are.

          • Bad Barbie

            Where did I say she isn’t? But if posts on the internet by pure strangers that are not personally aimed at you offend you to the core, then yeah, maybe you shouldn’t read those topics because you can’t expect people ( unaware strangers at that) to guard your feelings.

            There is no possible way that anyone could have been offending anyone here since we don’t know each others stories nor anyone replied attacking anyone personally. “Literally” is all we can read on here.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yes she is.

    • Bad Barbie

      Why would we laugh? You are not Nene, who’s been on TV bullying, exposing, and mocking people for the same issues that she has experienced first hand, all the while making a name for herself and the millions she’s claimed came with it. Her “pain” is manufactured for TV. She’s acted like a true bitch towards people that she can relate to.

      Tart, everyone has a story and some are worst than others. That still doesn’t give us the right to (in our real life) treat people that have not fault like pure garbage. Hope you find comfort to carry on without wasting one more minute of life.

      • Chloe

        I get your point also.

        • Bad Barbie

          It is really real out there in the real world. If you can handle reading these comments about a TV personality… strange.

      • CoolBreeze15

        Preach Bad Barbie!

    • Yolie

      If I’ve offended you personally for my viewpoint on Nene then I’m sorry. I don’t know you personally and wasn’t mocking your pain. Heck, I didn’t even know you shared the same pain. Nene has ridiculed Kenya Moore for her issues of abandonment but expects everyone to have compassion for her. I’m sure you can see the hypocrisy in that.

      • Bad Barbie

        Hmm…

        Where is the “ambush” and how can anyone personally attack her when there is not one single post from Tart on this thread besides this one? I am so confused.

        Care to tell us where are you being personally attacked, Tart? On another thread maybe?

        Maybe this is a sensitive subject for you but that is a different story than being ambushed and personally attacked.

        • CoolBreeze15

          I agree! It’s always double standards with this show. It’s ok to attack Kenya, Claudia, and Cynthia but NEVER Nene and Phaedra.

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          Agree,

    • Chloe

      I’m so sorry and unless someone has been through the mental pain they wouldn’t understand a mom that has never been there for you. People can’t know the pain and I don’t expect them to know. I feel empathy for the first time for Nene. You have to be cast iron to not.

      • RonnieIsBack

        I feel sorry for she and Kenya when it comes to their mother’s neglect. I just do not excuse her behavior. She can be vile and really should seek real help, not pacifiers.

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          Agree. I had a Mom…an alcoholic abusive bitch. Yet I choose to treat people different. It is a choice. I am better and stronger for my past.

          • Bad Barbie

            And if you met someone with your same background history are you going to tell them that they are worthless because their mom was a drunk? I bet not. On the contrary, you bond with them because they get you.

      • Bad Barbie

        I can’t feel sorry for someone that lacks compassion herself. When do you see Nene offering even the respect that Kenya deserves about this issue they both share. Nene is the same person that told her she was rotten and worthless that not even her own mother wanted her.

    • Susie Whats Her Name

      Nene’s mother did not just up and leave her/give her away. It was Nene’s choice. She wanted to live with her aunt and go to school in Georgia. Big difference.

      • Bad Barbie

        There is a video of an interview with her sister which she gives the real story. I fell off my chair last night. LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Tart
      I’m glad that whatever Nene is going through (whether she is sincere or not) is something you can identify with. I can assure you I have had an affinity with certain one on different shows as well. I think that is the main reason why these show should be on the air — to cause some good. If you can see yourself in one person, it could help. I know I saw myself in not the behaivor of Melissa of NJ, but in her position because I was married once and the cousin-in-law from hell was always attacking me because secretly she had a thing for my now ex-husband. I truly understand if you can in some relate and have sympathy for those not so likeable. Don’t leave, please don’t. I love seeing your posts. Besides, we are all love here. We all have different of opinions, etc. but we do it with kindness. I really don’t believe folks are attacking the depression Nene has or her sad disposition of abandonment. It is her behavior and vile dishonesty that is the turn off. I understand those traits are just a symptom of deeper issues. When you display conduct unbefitting of someone human, or even lady like with all the backstabbing and trying to get folks fired, it is hard for others to see the softer side and have empathy. Who knows, maybe she will turn a corner and get some real help. U are in my prayers and I am sorry you are experiencing internal hardship. The fact that you admit it and recognize it is a great start. Again we are not personally attacking you or anyone else who suffers from abandoment issues.

  • Dave

    Moose season should be over by now — sick to death of fake Nene Leakes.

  • Chloe

    I’m going miss your hysterical recaps Ronnie.

    Kandi never wavers from anything she says or does…Keep being you Kandi! I love how you are definitely a millionaire, but always grounded

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks I try my best to bring humor to the madness.

  • CoolBreeze15

    Great and funny recap as always Ronnie! Your comments have ALWAYS been on point, been seeing them over the last couple of years up here and on Reality Tea! Well, this is it for me in regards to this show. I love this blog though, it’s the best! This blog has the realest reality tea on the Internet and about one of the FEW places you can go to voice your opinion without all the ghetto trolls. I am soooooo tired of this Nene pity party and Dr. Jeff lost some cool points with me last night for cuddling Nene like she was a wounded baby bird. FLEAK Nene! You see right after this reunion she went back to throwing her usual shade! This show is finished even if does come back next season. I wish Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia, and Demetria well! I felt Kenya’s disgust though when Cynthia went to comfort Nene. Kenya was sitting like, “now I’ve talked about my mother abandoning me and I didn’t get all that!” I noticed her, Claudia, and Kandi all looked sour when Cynthia ran behind Nene. I think Cynthia is a good person, but sometimes you can be TOO nice to people. Everyone has a story but that doesn’t give you an excuse to tear people and their accomplishments down and try to get an entire cast to go against ONE person because you are THREATENED by that person! That’s STUPID behavior coming from someone almost 50 years old and someone who is a mother with GRANDKIDS! I hate how people are dragging Kandi right now. Kandi has been around this group long enough to KNOW Nene will NOT change and it wasn’t sincere!

    • Hey Cool B….You make many valid points here. Food for thought.

      • CoolBreeze15

        Thanks Seuss!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks CB and I agree. She is ridiculous and extremely jealous hearted. Not having a mom is not an excuse..she had an aunt who raised her and put her in all types of beauty contests, etc. She felt love but she is hateful…
      Did you see how Kandi was mad when Cynthia came back wiping tears…she was like why you crying? LOL

      • Marsbars09

        I think Cynthia is hoping among hope to be Nene’s friend again, that’s why she followed her off the stage. But everybody knows Nene is done with her. How come Cynthia doesn’t see it?

        • RonnieIsBack

          then she must be a glutton for punishment…Nene was ignoring her the entire time.

    • pixntrix

      I agree with you about the other sites. On AATT we can agree to disagree like adults without dragging it to the gutter. Love this site, the bloggers, commenters and the writers. ♡♡♡♡

      • Bad Barbie

        And you don’t have the countless posts of the same 4 users “joking”. Gets old. The other site that shall remain nameless is whack. The same people goofing on the same subject all the damn time. *scroll*

  • CoolBreeze15

    Another thing I thought was disgusting was when Nene barely took responsibility for her half breed comment regarding Claudia! It was OFFENSIVE! Ok, maybe Claudia made some OLD jokes about black people and comparing them to monkeys or whatever, but I think Claudia was speaking in terms of BEHAVIOR. Nene said it in a way to put Claudia down.

    • RonnieIsBack

      She sure did. she called Claudia everything but a child of God….

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      I about lost it when that came out of Nene’s mouth. That friend who was on last year, who is mixed, she also said crap about her “white half” so did Phea about Apollo’s white half. White people eat canned vegetables?? Pissed me off to no end.

  • CoolBreeze15

    The ONLY way these zoo animals known as Nene, Phaedra, and Porsha will go away is if people stop watching. As long as they watch these idiots Bravo will continue shoving them in our faces. I notice Bravo is the ONLY network that will keep a cast mate year after year though. Usually if someone is not bringing anything to the table, they get the pink slip with the quickness!

    • RonnieIsBack

      That’s so very true….

    • Mags

      I for one, will not be watching. Too toxic. TV is suppose to be entertaining.

    • Bad Barbie

      If RHOA Facebook page is any indication … Nene has like 3 fans left and they can’t even spell Facebook.

  • italiano bambino

    Nene apologize to the viewers please you offended Claudia with your ignorant racial comment. That whole crying scene was all.ME ME ME nene scene such bull shit. Time to canned nene and boredsha

    • RonnieIsBack

      And that apology was just heartless…she was like she had a gun to her head…

      • italiano bambino

        That was like Teresa saying I let my fans down instead apologizing to all those people she hurt in the process to act rich. Same thing different wive.

    • pixntrix

      I wonder if someone called Nene the n word how she would feel. I hate racial terms I don’t care to who or how they are directed and I hate people who use them…ignorant MFers in my book. Sorry this is something I’m passionate about.

      • italiano bambino

        Like Claudia say nene was grasping for a comeback and her only defense was to get nasty with Claudia. Claudia definitely has more class than nene something she Lack’s off IMO. Glad she told nene she doesn’t need nene apologies because at the end nene end up looking like a racist fool.

        • Bad Barbie

          If you really listen to Nene, her clap backs are usually corny one liners about appearance with true ATL hood slang that she probably learns from her son’s babymomma. She is too old to talk like that like she is “about that life”. she sounds so ghetto.

      • Bad Barbie

        She will go on a national press tour and on Larry King,

  • beckywebb

    Kandi is really good at getting people to break down. It is a great talent, especially when used against Nene.

    • RonnieIsBack

      LMAO….yes she did break when Kandi spoke up..this is the second time…

      • I’ve said this before but I sense Kandi raises Nene’e anxiety. There’s some fear there.

        • Marsbars09

          Really? I’ve never sensed that.

          • RonnieIsBack

            It’s true ever since season 2. Nene is definitely bothered by Kandi..her success…who knows if maybe they dated the same person once. She truly despises Kandi and there really isn’t a valid reason why she keeps coming for her…it has been years…

          • Bad Barbie

            The Kandi Koated Koins

        • Bad Barbie

          Cause Nene competitive radar goes to level 35 for the Kandi Koated Koins

        • fred

          because Nene wants to be where Kandi is a self made woman who has REAL TALENT

  • Marsbars09

    Puerto READ co. Ronnie you’re too much.
    I’m done with Nene. Her “breakdown” was an act. She just did that to have viewers feel sorry for her trifling ass.
    Moose will NEVER go beyond Bravo, that is why she’s hitting below the belt with her co-stars. Proclaiming single women should be fired? Who in the hell does she think she is? One of these days karma is going to bite her on her ugly mug.

    • LMAO @ “Puerto READ co” Ronnie is quite the wordsmith.

    • Bad Barbie

      That was genius.

  • Ilivehereandlikeit

    Ronnie, I read your recap – so thorough and so well worded!! I haven’t seen the episode but I live for your recaps 🙂 Thanks!

    My thoughts on NeNe’s leaving the set. This is what narcissists do when they don’t get their way. They have no empathy for others yet expect, even demand it from others.

    Whatever sympathy I have for her experience of childhood trauma, that is negated when I see her treating others so badly with absolutely no concern for them or what they might be going through or have gone through. The Golden Rule is what it is for a reason, you must treat others as you’d like to be treated. JMO.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks so much! Yes she is a narcissists. The golden rule is truth! It is what the universe is based upon – Karma – what you put out you get back in return 10 fold. She should have known better.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      BOOM!

      • Bad Barbie

        #PLONK

  • italiano bambino

    Nene ain’t stupid to start another argument with Claudia because she won’t have a chance. I have high hope Claudia comes back next season

    • RonnieIsBack

      So do I ..she is funny as hell..

      • Bad Barbie

        Maybe we can see her new toes making a debut.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Howdy-hey all! Hope everyone is well & having a good day. Missed everybody.

    Ronnie as usual, totally kick-azz re-cap. Didn’t watch, came here for the best re-caps anywhere.
    I feel bad for NeNe, feeling abandoned by a parent can really damage you… BUT, NeNe was so vulgar & mean to Kenya regarding those same issues. That was low!
    NeNe claims self-defense & that it was in the heat of the moment. That her words were said in anger. Sorry, but there are lines you do not cross! & many of the so-called “Ladies” have crossed those lines way too often. Calling Claudia a half-breed? & then only apologizing to the “audience” if you offended anyone? Stanky NeNe. Stanky & messy!
    Sorry but all that does not play well in my book. NeNe is & always was a bully. Imho, she uses her loudness, her brashness & her size to intimidate & shut other people down.

    To be quite honest if I stop to think about it, I have zero empathy for most of this cast, as well as many others in the different cities. Probably why I stopped watching & come here to read instead. I still DVR them but never seem to bother watching & just wind up erasing them. Pretty much the only ones that I have sympathy or empathy for are the kids. Todd, on the loss of his mom & Amber & Yolanda for their current health scare.
    Most of em’? They just aren’t nice people. They are delusional, self-serving & go out of their way to be overly melodramatic & tear each other down. I’m really tired of the same ol’, same ol’. To put it plainly, mean people suck! I avoid them like the plague in real life, so why would I want to see them on my TV?

    • COSIGN 100%!! This is Spot on!

      Hey Tiger! *waving* Hope you had a nice relaxing Mother’s Day! 🙂

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Howdy Doc! Yes I did. Phew! LOL! Needed it.
        Hope your day was lovely & enjoyable as well.
        Missed you. Hope everyone at Casa de Seuss is doing great & looking forward to a fun & fab summer. It’s coming fast. Took a long time to get here, but I for one am glad to see it.

        Thanks. I can understand NeNe feeling bad regarding her issues with her mom but that doesn’t excuse how she interacts with the other women. She has said some of the most vile & cruel things & said them totally unprovoked at times. She is hardly ever called out for her poor conduct because she blasts people. I see NeNe as one of those who immediately goes for the jugular. She tries to annihilate you with her words & the volume of her voice & then worries about the lines she crossed only after she gets some backlash on social media for it. I don’t necessarily believe it was an act, but she has used the same type of deflection tactics before. It’s kind of her M.O. Jmho.

        • Exactly, Tiger. Nene is a hypocrite. She gives very little and sucks the life out of everyone else. The way she treated Kenya was wrong on so many levels.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Agreed. The way she so nonchalantly threw out the snide comments to Kenya regarding her awful relationship issues concerning her mom was vile. The your brother died comment to Kandi was petty & downright mean & the half-breed comment & subsequent lame-assed non-apology was even worse. Truly a low point, even for the sharp barbed, nasty tongued NeNe. Just trifilin’!

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      PERFECTLY SAID!!!

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Thanks Ro. I’m tired of all the bougie BS from all of these shows. Whatever happened to common human decency, common courtesy? Whatever happened to just being nice? All of them irritate me. The fun has gone out & all we are left with is drama, back-biting & cat fights. Think I’ll pass, LOL!

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          I am not even going to watch RHOC. I am really tired of it. I wouldn’t have these women in my real life as friends…why watch it LOL!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Ita! 100%.

          • RonnieIsBack

            I know how you feel…Trashy trampra irks the hell outta me.

          • Rochelle Barozzi

            That is just it, I will not watch because of her. Blech

        • Marsbars09

          I know. The ladies used to be respectful of one another, but not anymore! It’s like crabs trying to get out of a barrel.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I remember when even warring factions knew not to cross certain boundaries. That seems to have fallen by the way-side along with their humility & self-control.

        • Bad Barbie

          Whatever happen to being “REAL”? Give us a spot on these show! We cook, clean, raise our kids, do homework, comment. LOL

    • pixntrix

      Tigerlily you are spot on. I don’t think Nene had a breakdown she just didn’t want to own her crappy bullying behavior. Who could go from breakdown to perfectly calm, wanting to fix your makeup and then throwing shade…maybe a faker. That so called Dr sure did flip on a dime and was up Nene’s ass. I don’t know how he found the room since Porsha and Phaedra are already so firmly in place there. I wonder if her ass has a zip code so they can get their mail?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Thanks Pix. I just can’t accept the fact that NeNe has said so many vile things. Really uncalled for things. Her emotions might have been genuine, I honestly don’t know. But I tend to see it as distraction & deflection. She didn’t want the other ladies to gang up on her & call her out for all the ish she dished out repeatedly at their expense, so she became the crying, vulnerable, victim.

        • pixntrix

          I don’t think they gang up on her…the way I see it they all, well except 2, have been run over by her and they want some closure or for her to own her behavior.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            True, absolutely true, but it is all at once & that makes it very hard not to get defensive, but then again, NeNe starts out that way so nothing ventured, nothing gained. Might as well say what you need to.

          • RonnieIsBack

            and some accountability…Moose dodges everything..

          • pixntrix

            She think she is Queen sh*t on turd island but she is really only fart the message girl!

          • Bad Barbie

            lmaooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks TL– Nene is sooo nasty and soooo rude. It was a chit show…

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        I just don’t understand how they all can be so blind to their own bad behaviors. It’s surreal to me. I mean it’s right there.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi T-lily! I couldn’t have said it better myself. Not a decent one in the bunch. They don’t even have respect for themselves.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        I think that’s what makes me sooo crazy. Is a “nice” paycheck really worth your soul? Your self-worth? I’d have to say no.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I agree with everything TigerLiliy said below! Great recap Ronnie, I just couldn’t bring myself to watch it either.

  • pixntrix

    As always Ronnie, you hit the nail on the head with the recap!

    • RonnieIsBack

      #Hugs and thanks!

  • RonnieIsBack

    I’m just really glad I don’t have to see her mug anymore spashed on the telly (Moose)

    • pixntrix

      From your mouth to God’s ears

  • pixntrix

    Ronnie that throw’d comment from Porsha…smdh. A rock looks at Porsha and says damn girl you are making me look smart!

    • Marsbars09

      LOL!

  • Ilivehereandlikeit

    Slightly OT but I must confess I have a shower curtain that actually DOES look eerily similar to Porsha’s dress! A tar-gey purchase. I’ve got to say in all honesty, my shower curtain looks better in my bath than it does on her body – lol. I know these people have stylists but I guess good ones are hard to come by?

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      The only thing missing from Porsha’s shower-curtain dress was the swan. LMFAO!

      • Ilivehereandlikeit

        Hehehe Tiger!

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          That girl did such a quick turn around of personalities, she amazes me. & not in a good way, lol.
          She was all like, “I can’t, won’t go to a strip club without my husband.” to now non-stop talk about her boob job & her butt. NYC Port-Authority hookers wear more clothes, ffs!
          It was like watching Sally Field in “Sybil” for the first time all over again. Not nearly as mesmerizing, but yet at the same time, it really creeps you out.

          • Ilivehereandlikeit

            Porsha is definitely not a stable person. That seems to be the #1 qualification for these reality shows anymore…

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Criminal mind-set & unstable. Pretty much sums up 98% of the RHW’s casts.

          • Ilivehereandlikeit

            I know, so sad.

          • Marsbars09

            Hey t-lily! I think Porsha, like Nene and Porsha, put on an act when she first arrived onto the series. I don’t think she would have been hired for the show if she were the Hor-sha she is today.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Hi Marsie. Happy Monday. I agree. I think Porsha definitely hid her true self quite well. What we’re seeing has always been there. Now it’s just out in the open.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Hope this is OK to do ATT&T? It’s just so similar, the color is exact!!

    • LMAOOO!! I’m sure the shower wore it better.

    • Jennymckitty

      Kenya was wearing shears from my parents sliding glass door. I just kept thinking about Carol Burnett’s Gone With the Wind skit where she wore the drapes.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        “Went with the Wind”, Jenny? LOL!

        • Ilivehereandlikeit

          That’s it!! I’ve only seen this now a million times and still laugh at it!!!

        • Jennymckitty

          That must have been their inspiration. Went with the Wind Fabulous!

      • Ilivehereandlikeit

        That was hilarious, the Carol Burnett sketch!!! Bob Mackie was a genius in the costume design market.

        Lol about Kenya wearing sheers from your parent sliding glass door Jenny!! I’ve seen those!! I read some posts about how nice some thought her dress was but to me, it looked exactly like lace curtains fashioned into a mock-wedding dress. IMO if the hemline had been short it might have actually been a gorgeous look. The floor length hem contributed to the drapery effect!!!

        Porsha’s shower curtain was worse but imo Kenya’s wasn’t all that great either. My vote this round went to Claudia.

    • Bad Barbie

      I have curtains like that.

  • Marsbars09

    Did anyone notice (besides me) that Fake seems to be as dark and evil this reunion like the last one?

    • Yes, I noticed but she played it more subtle this time. More cunning.

      • Marsbars09

        Actually her body language told all to me. Did you see her turned against Andy like she’s angry with him or something? She was also nasty to one viewer that asked about the bogus exorcism she had at her house.

        • Bad Barbie

          She had her back turned the whole time towards the therapist also. She probably can’t sit straight after all that lipo she had.

  • doggiedaddy

      LOL! I didn’t buy Nene’s “act” either doggie.

  • beckywebb

    When did feeling sorry for yourself and crying become breakdowns. Breakthroughs, maybe in a sense if you see yourself differently.I feel like this has become a travesty.

  • I’m so sick .. never mind. It’s about time this show ended. Season 8 needs to brings some fresh faces to the group because this rendition is late, tired, busted, and I’m disgusted.

  • Bad Barbie

    BTW, I saw the RHOA Facebook page… Nene has like 3 fans left. The comments.. that is all I was there for. LMAOOOOOOOOOO

  • Becky Nolan

    What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com OR you can call me or Text me on my cell# (785)-219-4717 for more info Becky Nolan TX, USA
