Never Make the Same Mistake Twice

NeNe explains why she needed to give Bryson some tough love.

We are finally back from Africa, yippee! I must say, it turned out to be an educating, eye-opening experience. I'm such a home body. I love traveling, but ten days with women I don't necessarily care for was a stretch, so I'm glad to be back home!

I returned home to Atlanta to news that I wasn't prepared for. My son had been arrested! Brice (as we call him) is a young 21-year-old trying to find his way in a big world of confusion. I believe in Never Making the Same Mistake Twice. With that said, I decided that tough love was better than no love at all. I decided to leave Brice in jail a few extra days to teach him a lesson. Brice didn't steal because he was in need, he simply stole because he was giving in to peer pressure, seeking attention, looking for something to do, and being silly. Whatever the case may be, I felt a lesson needed to be learned! I know there are parents that would have chosen a different route, as Peter suggested, but I felt this was what my child needed. My goal is always to encourage my son. I'm no different from any other parent; I want the absolute best for my son and always want see him on top! Brice, mommy loves you! We all make mistakes, just don't carry them forward and you will be fine, my love!

Then there was drama about whether Kim would have come to Africa and Kandi saying something about Kim holding a baby at the orphanage. The Smalls are looking a bit divided. Do you have to be friends with someone to agree with what they are saying? From what I could see, Cynthia said something that Kandi obviously agreed with. What's the problem? She shouldn't agree just because she's not as close with Cynthia? Can you say stupid? These girls make me laugh out loud.
In fact there were a few other things I found funny.

1. Kim saying she's known Sheree for ten years. LOL! I introduced them at the beginning of all this about five years ago.
2. Kim saying Sweetie didn't need to be tanning. Black people tan!
3. Kim saying she and Sheree don't talk behind each other's back. Aren't you the same person that said Sheree writes bad checks and returns the clothes she wears? Didn't Sheree try pulling off your wig and said things about you dating married men! I could go on and on, but I’ll wait until…
4. Kandi saying the world wants to know how Marlo and I became friends. Um, the same way you and Kim became friends when you didn't know her.
5. Kandi and Phaedra stopping by Sheree's lot. I was laughing out loud when Phaedra said there's not a trespassing sign out and the house won't be ready by Christmas! You've got to love it!

Thanks for tuning in! Catch me on Watch What Happens Live this Sunday with Andy Cohen.

Claudia: Girls Were Getting Read Left and Right

Claudia Jordan weighs in on the second part of the reunion.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Porsha said she was not dating an older African man?
Claudia Jordan: No, but I really don't want to be asked to speak on her anymore. I really and truly do not care. She's not in my circle. I don't really know any women outside of the other Housewives that hang with her, and I couldn't care less. The only reason it was ever brought up was to show the hypocrisy of some of the ladies. I made my point and kept it moving. I hope I'm beyond clear.

 

Bravotv.com: Who do you think is the shadiest?
CJ: I think everyone in this group has the potential on any given day to be shady as hell...myself included. It's a gift and a curse! But I didn't say much in Part 2, because I am trying my best to stay out of arguments that don't concern me if I don't need to refer to them to prove a point. So I sat back, chilled, and enjoyed the fireworks and stayed out of the line of fire. Plus no one needed my help or co-signing -- girls were getting read left and right without my assistance, so there was no need for me to offer up my opinion on things that had nothing to do with me. I think I did well exercising self-control!

Bravotv.com: What was the most shocking moment to you from Part 2?
CJ: Shocking? After being around these ladies these past ten months, nothing shocks me. Shoot... What's shocking is when there is peace and folks actually exercise good manners and positivity in front of everyone. Catch it!

Thanks again to all the fans of the show. I was just in St. Thomas for Carnival, and I was shooting a magazine cover and a music video for the reggae artist, Pressure, and I had such a good time! So many people approached me at Carnival who are fans of #RHOA. So I just wanted to say thank you to them all! I'm including a few pictures.
