Derek J.

Derek J. shares his thoughts on NeNe and Gregg and dishes on the Kenya/Porsha conflict.

on Nov 19, 20120

This week you guys also had the pleasure of meeting the adorable new castmate, Porsha Williams Stewart. She’s a doll, right? I have to make sure that I cosign the fact that Porsha’s family legacy is a BIG DEAL in the South. Hosea Williams was a pioneer in the civil rights movement and her family does A LOT for the less fortunate, year round. Kudos to the Williams family. Now, back to the program already in progress. From the moment Kenya and Porsha sat down to lunch, I knew “shade” was on the menu.

Here’s the short version. Porsha’s married and loving. She wants to know why Kenya isn’t. Kenya’s new to the city, so she agrees to support a good cause, but gets to the event and only “five” people were there and she was cold, so she said she was going to the car. “Going to the car” turned into Kenya standing in a “manure” scented driveway as she waited for Miss Lawrence to arrive. But of course, she couldn’t escape that easily. Porsha came out to inform her that her food was getting cold and that she was disrespectful, simultaneously. A few eye rolls, low blows, and ego shots later, the ladies parted ways and the tone was set for the newest “Battle of the Beauties!”

Y must there be a competition.....you both are beautiful. But Kenya do something right, be a lady and bow out, or grow old gracefully. She's younger yes, but she's beautiful because she doesn't behave like you do. Stop being a hater, give the girl her props.

The Miss America pageant is the pageant that Vanessa Williams won way back in 1984.  Women from all fifty states compete. It is very traditional and the women can win the title, become a spokes person and receive additional college money.  In recent years the pageant has become a little more "relaxed" and the ladies are wearing two piece swimsuits and they appear a little bit more "provocative"  The Miss USA pageant is for women from all fifty states also, but the winner can go on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant,  which I believe is run by Donald Trump.  This pageant does not appear to be as "stuffy" as the Miss America pagent. In the pass,both pageants got  big ratings, but since cable networks have been leading in ratings.  They do not do as well.  So Miss America and Miss USA are not house hold names anymore.  Kenya should count her blessings that she won when she did and move on.

DereK J. thanks for blogging... I just loved your hour show going over the past four seasons...

You are a class act, and keep it real when shade is applied... I wish you could have also been there with NeNe and Cynthia, but maybe that's something you and NeNe can do with just the two of you so you can show here NY your way...

 

Continue to "DISH" us the Tee weekly!!!

I love NeNe, that outfit @ her function was the bomb, they all looked good. Kenya seems crazy azz ever. Ok now her title is "Miss USA" = Miss United States of "AMERICA" so why the heck she has a problem with peoples saying Miss America. Is there really any difference and further more who cares. Kandi and her new mate seem and look great together. Kim is showing her true colors; comments  on Kandi's home and the area and that "Sweetie" OMG.

And now for the ELEPHANT in the room: Where the heck is Ms. Sheree? And that dang house of hers? And Marlo?

Would someone PLEASE tell me how Ms. Lawrence's face and head got injured.  That bag was fierce, but not distracting enough that I didn't notice his face and head were cut!

Kenya is jealous of Porsha. That's why she had a hissie fit and left no attention and jealous that Porsha has a wonderful husband that treats her like she deserves and Kenya doesn't have that she wants it but good luck she's crazy.

Women like Kenya are embarrassing to watch! Learn some manners for heaven's sake!  I don't believe I have ever seen a bigger ego on an undeserving individual. Sad.

ALL of this is some crazy mess! Not all of it makes for good tv... Kenya should be on medication. If she is, she's not taking them!  She wanted the charity event to be about her! Who cares how many people were there as long as money was raised for the foundation!!! Kenya was mad taht those "5 people" didn't rush her for an autograph!  She and Jackie Christy from Basketball Wives, LA will be great friends!  They are both touched!!!

 

I did see previews of all the women and their men will take a trip or a day outing together. I do have hope that we will see some unity with the women.

 

Please be sure to give us the "tea" after the episode where Apollo and Kenya flirt and play in the pool! LOL.. Pheadra has been keeping it classy but I KNOW she went HAM on them.. well at least one of them... if not, she needs her "sista" card revoked!

Derek J you are so classy !! I really like Nene but being from ATL where all the rumors are circulating about Nene catching Greg getting it on with another woman right under Nene's nose this past summer. I must admit it's hard for me to watch Greg begging her back. You can even see how Nene is rolling her eyes at him as if she ain't buying it either. In episode 2 Nene mentioned how Greg should have been nice to her months ago. Is this or was she referring to this past summer when Greg got caught in be bathroom with another woman at Nene's charity event? How disrespectful I can't do it. Let him go Nene please!

I'm an urban white woman, not at all from the South, but Porsha is gonna make me watch this show! She's the real deal! Kenya seems to be having some kind of mental breakdown and looked TERRIBLE at that event--her hair, her makeup, her clothes, her friend--ugh! Porsha did the right thing and was the epitome of class...she is going to make me watch that show.

1993 was like almost 20 yrs ago... Please GET OVER IT!! and thank Bravo for giving you an opportunity to be known nowadays because FYI... Ms. USA is just a "beauty pageant"  not a scientific discovery that could be found in HISTORY

 @NiaBabe The Miss USA pageant was conceived in 1950 when Yolande Betbeze, winner of the rival Miss America pageant, refused to pose for publicity pictures while wearing a swimsuit. Pageant sponsor Catalina decided to pull their sponsorship off the pageant, and create their own competition.[2] Other owners have included a subsidiary of Gulf+Western Industries, ITT Corporation, and billionaire Donald Trump, the current owner who bought the pageant in 1996

 

Historically, the winner of the Miss USA title represented the U.S. in its sister pageant Miss Universe. Since its inception, seven Miss USA titleholders have gone on to win Miss Universe. In the mid-1960s, the organization established a rule that when a Miss USA wins the Miss Universe title, the first runner-up assumes the Miss USA title for the remainder of the year. 

 

Sorry, but you  asked :)

I'm surprised Lawrence hasn't said something to her... I suppose being friends with crazy warrants him keeping his thoughts to himself.
