Lies and Gossip

NeNe refuses to let any of the girls' comments bring her down.

I've been a working girl and haven't spoken about the last few episodes! We are up to the fifth episode, and the girls have talked about me in every one. Is that hating or what? My thoughts are simply that they have their own opinion and I have mine! I just have to continue to do me. I laugh when watching the show, because it seems as if they all got together and said, "We're going to talk about her and say this and that! We're going to say Cynthia is up her a--!" All of this nonsense has truly backfired, because it has helped me in every way. So for that I say thank you!

I'll touch on last week and this week so let's go! Kandi's birthday party -- I had been out of the state working, and once I returned, Kandi personally invited me to her birthday party. I was willing to go even though we don't always get along with the same people. Phaedra decided to give her a gift which was a monster-esque stripper that jumped out of a box and put his privates in his mouth. Then he put it into Kandi's glass, stirred it up, and handed it back to her. It was just disgusting, so I decided to leave. Yes, I've heard all the talk wondering why I would be put off when I used to be a dancer! And yes, I used to be a dancer. It was twenty years ago, and I'm not ashamed of it. I danced as a single mom to support myself when I was in my twenties after getting out of an abusive relationship. Not once however did I bend over and suck my own lady parts. I've done a lot of things in my life that I wouldn't dare do today, and I would have to credit that to growth! I'm a real woman. I have lived and learned. I embrace who I am and don't look to anyone for validation. The opening of Bar One -- Peter asked me to host the event with him, and I said yes. Cynthia, Peter, and I have a great relationship. Cynthia and I know who we are as adult women, and we're very comfortable in our skin. That's why we're able to have such a great relationship. I texted Cynthia several times, so she knew I was having an issue and would be late. I walked into the room and owned it! Eyes were rolling and lips were smacking. After the ladies picked their faces up off the floor, I spoke to those I wanted to speak to and those who didn't get a hello knew why. I spoke to as many guests as possible and had a couple glasses of wine.  Bar One is a beautiful lounge in a nice location. These girls will not give credit where it's due, because their goal is to tear you down and put out false information, just as they tried to do with me, Gregg, and Charles. But that didn't work either! Gregg and I have always been close. Gregg knows me and I know him. Our relationship was not based on lies or gossip!

P.S. I wouldn't dare let these girls bring me down! I'm a winner baby!

Hugs, kisses, and a high five!

Phaedra: Kandi and I Are on the Same Page

Phaedra Parks opens up about her sit downs with Claudia Jordan and Kandi Burruss.

Bravotv.com: Did Claudia's overtures to you change your opinion of her or make you feel more comfortable with her?

Phaedra Parks: I did not have an opinion about Claudia. Claudia and I do not know each other, and we have had very limited interaction. I certainly appreciated the favorable accommodations. Connecting with her gave us an opportunity to begin laying the foundation for future interactions.


Bravotv.com: Did the conversation with Kandi help get you both on the same page?

PP: I think the conversation with Kandi helped us get on the same page. I value friendships and know that all relationships require an investment of time, patience, and effective communication.


Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to have the sit down with Kenya?

PP: As a Christian, I believe in forgiveness and redemption. While Kenya and I have deep rooted issues, I am finally at a place where I am willing to sit down with her and hear her out. The only way to describe our relationship is wounded. And everybody knows that wounds require air to heal. Hopefully, this conversation will serve as that air.

Xoxo,
Phaedra
