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

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
