No. 3 - Rumor Has It

This Charles Grant is an interesting fellow. The big Atlanta scandal of the season seems to be that he and NeNe dated or had some sort of relationship. While the ladies all allude to it and bring it up via clever insinuations etc, Charles just puts it all out there. We went on one date and she was too into herself. Boom! No beating around the bush. You've got to love the juxtaposition of Housewives with straight guys.

I was a bit confused by his girlfriend, Marlo. Charles recounts this story and the whole time she stays silent and looks kind of dazed. Was that the first time she had heard about it? Or was she just distracted by how hot it was at the bar?

P.S. What does a "done dollar" mean?

I think that Ms Joyce should have been upset speaking with your daughter openly about somethings in a different type setting was one thing but watching a male stripper expose himself like that and then to put his penis in her daughter's drink that would have been upsetting to most people. Having a stripper with a few select guests is an adult thing if that is what you like. But at a party that included your mother Phaedra should have thought this through a little better. I understand that people do their own thing and that is perfectly aright but this was not appropriate for that setting. NeNe had a choice as the others did and they chose to leave whether she was a stripper or not it was obvious that she did not care for that and she left end of story

Miss Joyce, she wants to be Kandi's friend , last season they (Kandi, Joyce and the girls) were all sitting around talking about their sex lives and Kandi asked her mom "what was HER freak level"? They were also talkin about her show "Kandi coated nights" and Miss Joyce was VERY ok with that. Why would you party with your mom??? I'm 42 and would'nt think of such.I have much REPECT for mine. My friends are my friends and my mom is my MOM. Miss Joyce needs to hang with her own friends.( she's always in the mixx) Also check out this coming week ,when she's on national televison in the bathroom with Kandi wearing some type of lingerie. A hott mess!!!! That's not cute, get over it Miss Joyce ,that's the relationship that you have with YOUR daughter.

I can hear crickets chirping she was so quiet. I think she knew it was best to stay quiet. hmmmm we will see how this goes.

I believe Kandi's mom had the right to be offended. I am only 30 myself and I would have been offended. I believe NeNe had a right to her feelings as well. I don't believe that NeNe instigated any feelings that Kandi's mom was experiencing. There is only so much you can continue to blame on one person. I don't think that Cynthia is weak. A weak person does not stand by someone when all others are bashing that person from any angle. A weak person does not enter into a room full of women to be supportive knowing that they talk about her upon her exit. A weak person does not go on Wendy Williams and defend herself. I think the weak ones are Sheree and Phaedra. They couldn't stand up to the mess that NeNe, Cynthia, or Kim have been through. We all thought Kandi was a pretty good girl last season. I think that she is still okay, but she is definitely walking a thin line. I am team NeNe and that is because all the other woman have made her the underdog. All Phaedra can talk about is donkey booties, Ok wake up we all have em. Her husband used Phaedra as a way out of his troubles and problems. He is still probably using her. How does he have a lucrative self owned business if he is an ex con for a white collar crime. who would entrust their money or business to him. He's fine, but that's all he has going. I just have soooo much to say and not enough time.

A done dollar simply means that she turn him off quickly by her character.

You are totally wrong about Joyce being upset. Any self respected guest at that party would have been offended. Phaedra does a lot of things her Moma wouldn't approve of. She has two sides, one is a freak. It was inappropriate for a party with Executives and Professional guest in attendance. Let alone her mother. If Phaedra wanted to give her a gift like that, she should have done it in a hotel room with a few selected friends and guests. You all are not in college anymore. Cynthia is very smart and know what she's doing. Why all of the negative comments about her?

Kandi's mom likes control. She was the reason for Kandi's breakup remember. However,she never had one word to say about the fact Kim did not pay Kandi for the "Tardy for the party." I think Miss Joyce is determined to remain in control of her daughter.

Tell me where Sheree got the money to have a house build from the grow up?

First of all, NeNe explained to Cynthia why she was running real late. And when she did arrive, she apologized and said she would tell him about it later. She wasnt to keep the "haters" out of her business. They were only there to look and laugh. They invited Charles and Marlo to start drama. NeNe did them right. They don't exist. As far as Sheree, if she loves her kids, damn him. Regardless if they have 2 homes, she has primary custedy. Get what is owed to them. I love Momma Joyce. She had every right to feel that way. Phadrea would not bring that filth around her mother. It's all about respect.

Nene is a hater of the worse sort. She claims to be Cynthia's friend, but then show up hours late at the event. She can't stand when the spotlight is on anyone other than herself. And I'm so over hearing her say she steals the spotlight when she walks into a room. Yes, any big moose would.

Charles Grant did several interviews in which he stated that he didnt know who Nene Leakes was, and was offended that people were saying that he was trying to get his 15 min of fame off of her when he has been playing football for a number of years. Now he is on the show and they went on a double date. That was for show. I dont believe it, and if it had happened, it would be all over the internet. I love how Bravo thinks we are all stupid. With crazy editing and over the top storylines. May we please get back to the reality.

To AureliaGirl - so what would you have Cynthia do when Nene came in? Scream in her face? Curse her out? If my friend did something that pissed me off I would deal with my friend alone, not go off on her at my husband's premiere. It's clear the other ladies cannot have a good time unless they're talking about someone. As far as Peter getting money from Cynthia, they both said it wasn't from her. They didn't lie about it before so why now, especially after she openly offered? Everyone is jumping on Cynthia for being friends with Nene so if she listened to them instead of following her own mind wouldn't that also make her without this backbone so many have spoke of. I think she's damned if she do, damned if she don't.

I totally agree with SFLGIRL's comment!

How fake were Sheree's crocodile tears? Ooops, sorry. THERE WERE NO TEARS!!! What the heck was that about? Who is she trying to fool here?

Shawny is right,...there's a big difference between being approachable as a parent and being just plain raunchy with your child. Mama Joyce respects the fact that Kandi is an adult and tries to remain someone she can discuss adult issues with but that is over the line. And the fact that Phaedra wouldn't do that in front of her own mom is a good one. Whatever we have seen Mama Joyce do with Kandi, it's never been over the top like that. She doesn't act all wild and raunchy like that. But the real question is,...

in reply to SFLGIRL, using a sexual aid is a private thing and discussing purchasing one with a group of women is considerably different than be so-rounded by your daughter's friends and their mates while some strange man puts his penis in her drink, get real, the woman has every right to be offended, any decent person would be.

Nene showed her just how loyal she is to her so called friend Cynthia tonight. She knew how much they were counting on her to be there but as everyone can see she can not be counted on. She is such a fake!

I hope Peter and Cynthia took notice that the girls he bad mouthed so bad showed up to support them but I bet he thinks they owe it to him. The ungrateful bum.

Now Sheree, it's a no brainer, let Phandra do her job and get your child support. It's not about you but those kids.

Mama Joyce was on point, glad she and Kandi made up .

Cynthia, does not seem to have a clue. First she couldnt read the cue cards at the fashion show. Told all her business to her family. Then she did not seem to be pissed that her so called friend, NeNe showed no respect, by showing up so late at Bar 1. And although she denied it, she may have gave him the money after all. It must be true what they say about models...

Charles is not saying done dollar he actually said done/dun dada-which is slang for finished, over with, done.

Sheree's reluctance to pursue child support via the court is interesting. She did not have a problem trying to get 7 figures when they were divorcing.

Ok so I just think the whole Charles Grant NeNe thing is losing steam right before our eyes. I don't think there was much to any of it. That's just my opinion and as far as Marlo is concerned I think she just found out that night that her "honey" went out with NeNe once or whatever IT was. And what the heck was she wearing? It looked like that top Lea from the Miami housewives wore to the gallery party. UGH I didn't like her outfit at all...It looked a little cheap. Sheree is a hot mess wearing a $15,000 purse but complaining about money..All I have to say is priorities honey. Yes he should pay his child support but after the way she's acted I wouldn't give her a dime either. She's tacky for a lack of better words throwing water like she's in high school and bolting with the kids wihtout letting them say bye to their daddy. Like she told him to get a job she should do the same! Lawrence and Sheree coming to Bar one was ridiculous the always have something negative to say Phaedra too. She should have had enough of stirring the pot...Kandi I'm a little disappointed in for grabbing the reins and taking first place as the ultimate pot stirrer tonight. I got a sad face next her name right now because I know she's better than that!

I just wanted to ask everyone else are they as surprised at Kandi's mom's overly dramatic part 2 reaction to the stripper? This is the same woman from last season who told her daughter and her cast mates that she wouldn't mind a dildo. Now she wants to act offended? She made the comparison of Phaedra's mom, but you have yet to see Ms.Parks' mom act like her daughter's "homegirl." I believe that Phaedra meant no harm and assumed that Kandi's mom would be okay with the stripper since she has portrayed herself as being open to those type of things all last season. If anyone owes someone an apology it is Joyce to her daughter for being so belittling toward her friends publicly and for being so dramatic with Phaedra. She should really get over herself.
