NeNe's Sweet on Kandi - Ep 8

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor hopes that Kandi and NeNe's new friendship leads to a musical collaboration.

The final installment of the Anguilla trip has proved to be miraculous -- NeNe rode a horse, Kandi finally had a breakthrough with NeNe, and Walter somehow didn't propose to Kenya, despite her persistent inquiries. I suppose in the spirit of Christmas, the Anguilla trip has turned into the gift that keeps on giving.

No. 3 - No Horseplay

Given NeNe's distaste for danger (I think she nearly passed out when Kenya put the pedal to the metal on that speedboat), it wasn't exactly shocking that NeNe's not a natural equestrienne, unlike Phaedra.

After Gregg helps hoist her up onto her noble steed, NeNe holds onto its neck for deal life as it moves at an incredibly slow trot while the handler holds the reins. And with that she jumps down and thirstily seizes a cocktail from one of the waiters who handily happens to have a tray full of daquiris. Horses may not be her thing, but NeNe does know her way around a cocktail.

No. 2 - Kenya Get Me a Ring?

Evidently not. After one of the more awkward dinners in Housewives history, where everyone except Kenya seems to be aware that Walter has no intention of proposing to Kenya, Kenya has a talk with Walter, which ends up being even more awkward than the dinner. Evidently Walter saying "anything can happen in three days" led Kenya to believe he was definitely proposing to her. And even if Walter was considering, Kenya's constant pressuring only helped to dissuade him.

So after this revelation, Kenya storms off into the Anguilla woods to go sulk alone in the dark. At which point, Phaedra realizes maybe someone should go get her so she's not sitting out alone in a strange country by herself, so off she trots to her rescue. As Kenya tearfully explains the situation, Phaedra opens up her patented "everybody knows" playbook to share some wisdom about marriage: "Everybody knows the only person looking for a husband is somebody that ain't never had one, honey, because it's more work than what you think it is." Amen!
No. 1 - NeNe's New Sweet Tooth

I don't know about you, but I never did really get why Kandi and NeNe have never gotten along. There's seemingly never been a solid reason for they can't be friends. But all they needed was a little Anguilla magic evidently, because they've finally thawed their icy friendship. I'm guessing it was NeNe's dramatic reenactment of Kenya and Porsha's fight that really warmed Kandi up to the idea of friendship.

Let's just hope this is only the beginning of a beautiful new friendship, because I think there could be some fun times had between them. Especially because it might actually lead to NeNe's song 'Excuses' actually being produced.
Next week it looks like there might be some trouble in paradise for Phaedra and Apollo.

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
