Kenya's Shocking Behavior

Porsha was speechless watching Kenya dance with Peter.

Hello good people, I hope your week is going as you planned so far. Let’s jump right in. This past weekend I sat down with a bowl of popcorn and enjoyed watching RHOA just like all of you. I was ready for a crazy episode, and boy was I not disappointed.

Arriving at the airport, I was so excited to go to Anguilla with the ladies and thankful that Cynthia and Peter had extended the invitation to me and my husband to accompany them there. I love traveling with my hubby, and any chance to have a great time with some romance involved, no need to ask, you can count me in! LOL! It was great to meet all the ladies and their better halves. You know how it is when you meet a person and then you meet their mate you think, "Yes you all definitely match each other." That's how I felt about the couples in this group, well, except for one I had to *side eye*.

The atmosphere was just perfect for any loving couple and just the type of place to bring someone, seal the deal, and get engaged. Yay! For me from the outside looking in, I would have guessed it would be Kandi and Todd or NeNe and Gregg. As for the odd couple, I must say the prospect of a blissful marriage seems no closer to happening than hell freezing over. LOL! But I still wish you luck. Everyone deserves love.

Anyway, let's get into the Big Buns or Double Side of Mash. Child, Miss Pheadra showed up and showed out. I definitely feel like she was showing Kenya what's been holding my hubby down. Get it, girl! But as for me, I would have done it a little differently. I just feel that my reaction to another woman pushing my man would have been to kindly shove her in the lovely pool as a return favor instead of allowing my husband to return the playful gesture. Boom! I simply feel it was in bad taste as she said, and for me watching that again on TV, I completely see why Ms. Parks felt disrespected. However, I have to give Ms. Parks credit for shutting down the indecent proposal offered by Kenya, asking whether she and a friend could have a go at her husband. Side Bar: It’s funny who thinks they’re a great role model. Anyhow , I really enjoyed going to the event and having the native island girls perform for us. I believe I caught the island fever, because I seem to have fancied myself a dancer as well. I think my hubby enjoyed my moves. LOL! It was also so good to see everyone relaxing and letting their hair down. I love to have a good time with good people.



Another shocker -- I was speechless seeing the former Miss USA dropping it on another husband and propositioning a married man for sperm. *Have several seats.* Gross!

I must say all and all, I am enjoying myself so far on this trip. Let's hope things don't get any crazier while we all continue sipping on this island punch with our sweetie pies in this gorgeous destination for love. Well I have to go I'm getting my hair done so I can look cute for my boo. Got to keep it tight and right. LOL! Talk to you soon!

Lots of Love! *smooches*

Claudia: This Group Should Reserve Judgment

Claudia Jordan thinks the other 'Wives shouldn't be so willing to believe rumors. 

Bravotv.com: How shocked were you when Cynthia shared the rumor about Chocolate?

Claudia Jordan: Well I really don't know Phaedra that much to comment on her personal life, but from the little bit I am privy to, I was surprised to hear about an alleged affair considering the extreme criticism that Kenya got. At the end of the day only two people know what really did or did not happen, and I would love for this group to reserve judgment on everyone until there is confirmation. But I think a precedent had been set a long time ago, so that has opened the door to where we are now. I think it's easy to believe something negative about someone in the group, because in the past it's been shown that it takes very little actual evidence or proof for some to jump on that bandwagon. Hopefully we can get to a place where we afford each other the same benefit of the doubt that they may one day give us. At the end of the day there should be a protocol that we all follow and it should be applied to everyone. Until then I suspect we may continue to have a problem. But I am hopeful. Perhaps a lot of the drama in this group is because there are so many unresolved issues. And that combined with all the double standards in place is a sure fire recipe for disaster. I still have hope though. Again, not to have everyone be besties, but just being able to co-exist in the same space would be a major accomplishment with these ladies.

 

Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Phaedra blew up at Kenya?

CJ: I thought it was silly and out of character. But I am glad that Phaedra had enough good sense to not actually hit Kenya. We don't need another physical altercation in this group. Again, we are all supposed to be mature ladies, so with that being said, I think the majority of us have a pretty good grasp of the English language and should be able to talk anything out without resorting to violence. Hitting each other is low class, childish, and ignorant behavior, and I'm so glad that Phaedra didn't really go there.

 

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Phaedra walked out?

CJ: Although this has nothing to do with me, I am around these ladies and a witness to all the shenanigans, but from what I've gathered, I wasn't surprised that Phaedra walked out. That seems to be a recurring theme in this group when things get uncomfortable. But at the same time, I am glad she did. If you ever feel the urge to put hands on someone and you are done talking, I think the best thing to do is excuse yourself and leave the situation without adding any more inflammatory language to the mix.

I would like to say that a lot of these issues in this group of course started way before I came around, but being here and seeing things with my own eyes has definitely been enlightening. It tends to get confusing as to what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior in this group, because there are clearly double standards. So in some cases it seems like it's OK to bring up sensitive information in front of the entire group, then in other cases it's not OK -- seems like it all depends on whom it's about. In a perfect world I wouldn't expect for us not to spill tea -- I mean that's what we do -- but if folks expect to be pulled aside to be asked about a rumor or some "tea," then I would hope they would abide by that rule and extend the same courtesy. That's all. Because the way it is now is causing far too much confusion, and as long as there is confusion and unfairness, there is going to be conflict. I've never been around so many arguments, so much shadiness and mudslinging in my life. And especially not since I graduated high school back in the '90s! Maybe there is a way we can get us to a place where we can co-exist peacefully. Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Again, I want to thank all the viewers that tune in weekly to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I just returned from Charlotte, North Carolina where I was making a few appearances at CIAA and the love and support I got from hundreds of people that wanted to take pictures and talk about the show; it was amazing! So many people told me they love what I'm bringing to RHOA and I just wanted to say thank you to any of them that may be reading this. The show is loved by so many and I feel we have a responsibility to entertain and hopefully inspire. We've got a lot of the season left and I hope the fans will be happy with how everything turns out! Love you guys!
