Kim and Kenya's Harsh Critiques

Phaedra was troubled by Kim and Kenya's criticism.

As we enter our fifth season, much has changed but more has remained consistent. New friends have joined our circle while old friends have parted ways. Some of us are busy with work while others are busy being busy bodies. Nevertheless, it is great to be back. Thank you for continuing to tune in to watch our heartfelt moments, crazy antics, and most importantly, our personal journeys to self-actualization.



During Episode 1, we see how busy everyone is -- NeNe has joined the stars in Hollywood; Kandi has found the love of her life and dream home; Kim is happily married and expecting a new baby; and Cynthia's modeling agency is flourishing. My life, similar to that of my friends', is equally as busy as I juggle the demands of being a wife, mother, business owner, philanthropist, apprentice and full time mortuary student. While we should all be ecstatic for one another because we all have what matters the most -- devoted families and wonderful friends -- the old cliché of "actions speak louder than words" always prevails. And sometimes our words are more caustic than fire. My Mama always taught me "if you don't have anything nice to say, well just don't say anything at all." During this episode some of us should have taken my Mama's advice. I was troubled by Kim's criticism of Kandi's prestigious neighborhood and gorgeous home and equally if not more disturbed by Kenya's harsh comments to the young aspiring models. While I hope that none of the comments were meant to be as hurtful as they sounded, I found them highly offensive. As women, we must always realize that it is not always what we say but more importantly when, where, and how we say it that counts most. In closing, "wisdom has two parts: (1) Having a lot to say (2) Not saying it." -St. Bernadine (Catholic Church: Baltimore, MD).


Again, thank you for your continued support. I am most appreciative. Please visit www.phaedraparks.com to learn more about me and my upcoming ventures.

GIF Recap: Part 2's Realest Reactions

Ep 25: Shouts and snaps galore!

Welcome to our weekly GIF-cap, where we provide the 3 best GIFs from each episode!

The second part of the reunion resurfaced the checkgate argument, Kandi and Phaedra's fractured friendship, and an unexpected blowout between Kenya and NeNe. And of course, some critical reaction GIFs for your everyday life! 

Kandi asked Andy to share his opinion of Kenya and NeNe's charity check standoff, but all she got was this:

Sure, Andy, sure...

We also learned where NeNe knew Phaedra from...right here on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

OK?

And Part 2 came to a very vocal end, when a shouting match broke out after Kenya claimed NeNe had flirted with Peter in the past. The volume was so loud that it was practically an aural slap in the face for Peter.

Luckily no one's ear drums were seriously injured (as far as we know).

Get ready for next week's epic finale, when we'll finally learn what caused NeNe to walk off in tears.
