Kenya and Porsha: Battle of the Beauties

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

Hey guys! If you’ve been wondering where me (and my two cents) were, I’ve been traveling and making the world beautiful, so I missed the first two weeks of commentary for the new season. Luckily, when I clicked my heels this week, I returned just in time to pour a little “T” and talk about my favorite girls! So, I’ll dive right in…

To start, I must say, I’m lovin’ how Gregg Leakes in trying everything he can muster up to court his way back into his darling diva, NeNe’s, heart. Keep doing what you’re doing Gregg; love always wins! Speaking of NeNe, I have to give it up, because she’s doing her thang! (Yes, I meant to say “thang.” Glee and The New Normal… yes ma’am!). I hate that I missed the chance to traipse through the concrete jungle with NeNe and Cynthia, because I know it was a MESS, but I’m glad Cynthia was able to convince her to be “normal” and ride the subway. Next stop, another try at the street meat cart!

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!”
So my closing statement for this week is that things are about to get real. You’ve officially met all of the girls and the claws are about to come out. I’ll also say that I have only just begun to really start spilling the beans. I wanted to take it lightly this week because next week I’ll have a lot to say!

Kenya: I Felt Vindicated Yet Again

Kenya Moore weighs in on the dramatic confrontation with Phaedra Parks.

MOVING ON
I’d moved on and forgave Phaedra for all of the lies she single handedly fabricated about me. When Cynthia told me of Apollo’s latest findings, I didn’t doubt it, as I have experienced what she is capable of first hand. My emotional reaction was based on anger not pain. I thought, "The nerve of her!" She went on a slut shaming, whore-calling campaign without any proof, and now that Apollo caught her with sticky fingers dipped in chocolate, I felt vindicated yet again. I don’t care about their relationship or how many men Phaedra chooses to sleep with, that is her cross to bear.


FOGO De CHILE PLEASE!
I arrived at dinner with an open mind and just tried to stay focused on my future and not my past with these women. I have been to Brazil many times and made friendly talk with the waiter and was accused of flirting. I’m not above being nice to a waiter. And even if I was flirting, which I wasn’t, there is nothing wrong with a good man making an honest living. I wasn’t raised to only give my attention to married man that can buy my affections.


When Cynthia reluctantly brought up the Apollo accusations, I kept quiet. To those who say I’m in Phaedra’s business or marriage, let’s get one thing straight -- Phaedra brought my name into the conversation by saying "the text messages with Kenya and that supposedly didn’t happen either," in effect still calling me a whore and a liar. Of course I had a right to respond in kind. Classic Phaedra, divert attention from the real issue and lie on someone else, namely me. She tried it!


YOU WANT THE TRUTH? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Apollo and Phaedra are both liars. Facts are indisputable. However, we are not talking about a rumor but an accusation. Whether you choose to believe it or not, it comes down to the facts whereby Apollo presented proof. Yet, it’s OK to believe him when he lied about me. Remember the lie is a lie? But don’t believe him about Chocolate and the proof he presented. In fact, Phaedra to this day is still trying to get the public to believe there was an "affair." The hypocrisy and contradiction! LOL!


But the truth will always come to light. Phaedra claimed she wasn’t called a "head doctor" in high school, even though it was her new BFF who stated it. Oh, and didn’t Chuck also say Phaedra was a "jump off"? She also lied about the phone call with Cynthia until Cynthia presented hard evidence. And let’s not forget she even lied about her due date to everyone -- the timeline doesn’t lie. Phaedra has so many skeletons in her closet, and they are not from the dead people she embalms.


MY REAL OBSESSION
I’m obsessed with my life and all the amazing things that are happening. #ThatIsALL
