Season 5's Soap Opera Drama

Porsha shares what you can expect from this season.

Yay, the first episode was great start to a season full of more drama than ten seasons of the soap opera As the World Turns! Trust me, we all have in some way or another unknowingly taken part in it, as if it was a book on the best-seller list.

OK so let’s get right into it. First I want to say I’m glad that the season I joined the cast NeNe seems to be back to the funny, crazy, dramatic NeNe we love. She is shown in the first episode in LA having lunch with a MAJOR director and talking about doing her own sitcom. (Get it, rich bitch!) Love it. I’m delighted to see her thinking about working it out with Gregg (her ex hubby). Fame and fortune is desirable, however family and a man who is there for you through thick and thin is priceless. Plus men are always better on the second go around (wink). Take him back, NeNe, y'all are really good for each other.



Next Kandi and her new man hit the big screen, and I must say, I really like these two together. They are really in person just like you see them -- two cuddle bears. (Gag, LOL!) Just kidding. You guys will see such a huge difference in couples this season. It’s obvious whose relationship is genuine and whose is fake and probably couldn't get a real man if they made him up like the teens in Weird Science. (Cracks self up.) PS: Even though Kandi's dude is young, he resembles my late dad, so on that alone he gets an A+ from me, LOL. 

Oh how can I forget Kim visiting Kandi’s house. Can we say a bit rude? I know they seem to be friends, and sometimes you are so comfortable with friends that you can say certain things. But I feel for Kandi, because she looked uncomfortable. Trust me, even if her house had been done, you still feel self-conscious about these things, that’s just being a women. Let me state for the record, yes, that area of town does have a lot of blacks, however they are affluent people. And trust me, any part of town anywhere can become jacked, so to insinuate it was the ghetto wasn't a well thought out comment. I live in a nice area myself, but trust me, my doors and gates stay locked. Bloop bloop and alarm on. With drugs like Molly and bath salts, I'm not taking any chances, LOL.

Now Pheadra and this pet hospital visit… child, if you are going to go to a place where people care about pets, you have to come a little more plainly dressed. You know a flashy, beautiful woman coming in talking about burying their precious dog is not going to go over well if they think you are doing it for money. Hmm that reminds me, are the dogs and humans prepped for burial in the same funeral home? I personally can't wait to see Pheadra show me some of these exercise video moves from her donkey booty video. If you ask me, you can never have too good of an apple bottom. We have to always work it out. Good luck on both of those and can't wait to see the first pooch funeral.

And as for Kenya, one word: SHAME. Have several seats. Thank you.
Last but not least, Cynthia Bailey. First I want to say I feel like she is very blessed to have the father of her daughter in her life, and now that I see the relationship he has with Peter, even better. One thing I can say about a blended family is that they work the best when all agree on how they’re going to co-parent. Sometimes everyone agrees and sometimes not, but at the end of the day, as long as the child’s best interest is in the forefront, the situation will be blessed.  Now as for him staying at their house, that’s another story… More power to you though, girl, LOL! We all saw the crazy scene with Cynthia and Jet magazine having to deal with a self-absorbed judge. What I have to say about that is at first I was upset that Cynthia didn't just give her an old-fashioned read and then see the troublemaker to the door, but then I realized that she had Jet mag sitting there and was simply trying not to make things worse.  Well child, next time this is what you: do just like mamma used to do to you in church and pinch that heffa or ask her outside and to kindly leave your place of business. You'll talk to her later and come back in casting and act like nothing happen.

Anyway I need to go pick my son up from school, and I’m tired of typing with stiletto nails. I’ll chat and have some good old tea with you guys next week.

Kisses,
Porsha

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right on in.


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
