No. 1 - Mama's House?

I breathed a sigh of relief when Todd told Kandi it was too soon for her mom to move in with them. Agreed! Way too soon for a couple that hasn't been together all that long.

Then again, it would probably be highly amusing in an Everybody Loves Raymond kind of way to have Joyce in the guest house. They could have fun family recording sessions, Joyce would of course walk into a Bedroom Kandi party at some point and be scandalized, there would be great Riley and Joyce interactions -- the possibilities for comedy are endless here! And we haven't even met Todd's parents yet...

P.S. I was really happy that we did not see Momma Joyce on the show as much this season because she caught attitude too much with Kandi and not speaking to her and I want Kandi to be free and open to be herself without momma looking at everything.  Love you Momma Joyce!!!

I love to Kandi finally happy.  Please don't even entertain the idea of allowing your mother to move into your main house or the guest house unless Todd's parents can move in as well.  It's only fair.  Moving your momma in especially after what happen with your mom in your past relationship would not be good.  Let momma Joyce stay right over there in her own house she had for 30 years or what's even better... Sell momma Joyce house and help her purchase a newer one since that was her complaint.  Momma Joyce need to stay away from your Kandi Koated Knights or your will see how few of those you will have!!!  I'm just saying... Let momma come visit and than she can go home she get mad too much.  why didn't she come to the housewarming party?  Imagine dealing with that back and forth attitude in your house every day.

RE: Phaedra's "Phine Body Workout" Video

    I just listened again to the filmed segment of Phaedra's

workout video that was released to RHOA on Episode 19.

I wanted to listen to her comments regarding her ties to the

funeral business once again.. I had to replay the video 

several times to make sure I heard her exact words...

When I heard verbatim what she actually said, I was stunned! 

This is what she said during a filmed session in which she

and her female partner were spinning around...

'We are not going to spin until we fall out because I am also

a mortician too...I might get excited about burying you'...   

How creepy...Who in their right mind says something like that...

She was in the process of filming a workout video where she

needed to establish herself as a credible fitness trainer...

Without editing, Phaedra's comments were included in the

video clip that was released by Bravo TV to air on RHOA ...

 

    Finally Phaedra Park's true character has been revealed....

She is the exact opposite of who she has pretented to be.

That makes her either too stupid to know the difference

between acceptable behavior or too arrogant to care...

Please do not have Kenya come back as a Real Housewife of Atlanta.  She didn't add anything and she is about as much of a RHOA as I am which is zilch.

I am so disappointed at the ladies comments, " I really did not want to come dress like this but I did". Ladies this event was about celebrating beautiful and strong African American women. Porcha.. you dont get that?? Porcha was so focused on her beef with Kenya. The other girls just followed along and made negative comments about how they did not want to dress like Empowering and beautiful woman. Wow! Really? Kenya I love you girl, however; It was too much to kick Porcha out. At the end, Im glad that you did apologized. The event looked fabulous!

RE THE BOOTY BUILDING BATTLE:


I just viewed both segments of filming the two workout  videos in

production in the last RHOA episode. In Phaedra's video she didn't

even know how to warm up properly. She joked inappropriatelyas

being a funeral director if the workout was too vigorous for some...

She bragged about all the money she was going to make from video 

sales...She boasted about her fit sexy body and bragged about her

hot husband as the fitness trainer...Apollo looked uncomfortable in

his scenes and clearly didn't know what he was doing... If I had been

director/producer of this "Phine Body Workout"  video and had hired 

Phaedra and Apollo to act as fitness trainers, based on their poor

performance I would have fired them rather than the DJ as Phaedra

yelled out to do during the filming... Once again, I was stunned by

Phaedra's arrogant attitude...She appears to be only interested in

making money from the viewers and public...

 

 

The filming segment of Kenya's workout video production was the

exact opposite in effect. She was calm, cool and collected with the

film crew and cast during her workout segments. To those who

viewed it was very appparent that she was fit and worked out on a

regular basis.  As a result Kenya will have more credibility in

promoting her workput video as a fitness trainer. She appears to

be more knowledgeable while giving instructions to her potential

workout  clients.  

 

Therefore I choose Kenya's workout video not the one by Phaedra.  

Kendra's video appears to be authentic, Phaedra's video does not...

Kandi needs to dump that Todd guy, lol and move mom in next door. It's not like they'll be sharing the same bathroom or anything. Free loader needs his space.

Based on Joyce's past behavior with Kandi's relationships I think Joyce needs her own house. Afterall what would be her role; mother, housekeeper, babysitter, counselor, or busybody? 

Plus wasn't she dating, or trying to find a date?

Sorry to hear about Porsha. I am sure Kenya isn't calling to express concern. Was Phaedra pregnant when she started this endeavor?

Kudos to Cynthia for staing the obvious to Kenya.

Gregg creeps me out.....something off with tha guy in my humble opionion.

I think in time Kandi's mom will be in the house.....

No KHandi don't do it, mom should not be moving in with you and Todd. I know you love your mother, but your mother has a jealous streak and she appears very manipulative to me. She knows you love and respect her and whenever she sees you getting close to a man she finds some reason to get mad at you   and insert herself into your personal life, causing conflict and drama. I think you mother should be happy  for you, that you found someone to make you happy. She should give you your time to grow and form that bond that only a man and woman can share. I also feel your mother may be a little bitter and jaded when it comes to men, possibly due to her past experiences. I suspect she may be allowing these feelings and her loneliness to surface, and she tries to pull you away from Todd, possibly because she afraid of losing you. You can't expect a man to accept your mother into his home, he married YOU, not your mother. Grow up Khandi, I know you want your mother's approval, but you're a grown woman, you may want it but you don't need it.

Laughter is good for the soul!! That's why I watch this crazy mess. Thank you! 

Kenya should have walked over to Walter and his date pointing at both of them and said "Good luck with this", and walked away.

Phaedra's workout was soooo sad and funny, I'm still laughing.

Todd better sign whatever and whenever Kandi want's him to, or "her mom" will kick his ass out!

Too funny!!!  can't wait until Sunday! Thanks for the laughs.

Regarding that BAPs costume, Porsha never agreed to come as that character.  She did exactly what I would have done and come as Dorthy Dandridge.  And what is the first thing Kenya said was "since I wasn't invited to your party...."  What a loser Kenya is and petty to boot.  Kenya acted like a damn fool and made herself look like one too!

Nastybaby

I think that we can all empathize with Kenya as far the feelings we have for exes and wanting to avoid them like the Plague, but Kenya was being childish and dramatic.  This is a recurring theme with her, and it's become dull.  

 

The last breakup that I had was very ugly.  My ex is the last person I ever want to run into, but you know what?  If I do run into him, I will ignore him.  I will act like he doesn't exist and keep it moving. Why give someone my time and energy, especially if he is a jerk?  

 

If there is one thing I have learned is this: I won't let people rob me of my time, my money or my peace of mind.

Kandi - Todd; What a really nice home but I don't understand for the life of me why so large? But nonetheless - - it is beautiful.. one could get lost in either home. Thank Goodness you brought up the pre-nup, it is nice to see that you are taking care of business. What a wonderful meeting you had with all of your peeps that work for you in your company. Wow - how nice was that to see how you've helped so many people with jobs. You are really doing your part in helping the economy.. Congrats on your empire!!

Todd and Kandie will do just fine, they are already doing one of the most important things before marriage talking honest and openly about the hard stuff. many couples get so caught up in the romance of it all that they do not see the reallities  untill it's too late.Maybe if Porscha and Kordell would have had the hard conversation they wouldn't be facing divorce. So Todd and Kandie are just being smart good for them.I have nothing to say about Kenya just get a life!!

According to TMZ, Kordell is divorcing Porsha.   I'm not really surprised, but I do feel bad for her.

Something about that Todd doesnt seem right. He doesnt even look like he belongs in that home Kandi clearly purchased with her $. I wish them well but I agree with Kandi getting a tight prenup! LOL

The comments that Kenya and Phaedra were slinging back and forth about each other were completely unattractive. Not inclined to buy either video after these shenanigans.

 I agree Nancy and the ladies ended the season in a powerful way. Last season it was the trip to Africa and buying all that stuff for the poor community and visiting the orphanage. Now ending this season in honor of African American women in film. I loved it.

 @chattyone you are either very young or just naieve. when two people live togeather it is anyting but free. even though Kandie may have bought the house i'm sure he is contributing on his own way. he doesn't seem like a leech to me . you must have him confused with Apollo.

I think that what you're forgetting here is that Walter was at that function to start confusion and the other thing is, am I the only one that was listening when Kenya and Cynthia were talking she didn't said the big earred bastard was gay or other wise, she said she asked and he never said yes or no.  Also the other comment was she'd never seem him with an erection.  She had a right to say those things after all she was suppose to be dating him, and remember he started it by make rude comments about women over 32 yrs. of age.  I'm sure he likes younger women.  I don't believe for a minute that the woman he brought to Kandi's was his woman, did you see the look on her face. 

 

All in all Kandi,  stupid Phaedra, and really dumb Porsha are the messiest B----ches on the show.  Kandi, couldn't repeat a story correct if her life depended on it.  Phaedra maybe pregnant not but, the big mouth messy slut really needs to look in the mirror for real at her self, she can't hold a candle to Kenya, silicone ass or not.  Ask the men of America who they think looks better.....HA HA HA

 I don't like that he doesn't want her mom to stay in the second house.  If it was one dwelling, I could understand that he would want to give themselves some time before Joyce moved in, but this is not the case.  This is a separate dwelling and Joyce found that house for Kandi, according to Kandi herself. Even if her mom did not select the house with the intention to move in, as a daughter whose own mother lives with her, I would be remiss to purchase a property like Kandi's--one that my aging mother bought--and then not invite her to stay.  

 

I understand that people need their space and privacy when it comes to marriages, but if privacy and having their 'space' is really a concern for Todd, then why doesn't he ask Kandi not to do any t.v. shows, for it seems that these reality shows are adding more and more stress to relationships (or at least exposing underlying problems that can longer be ignored)? I think that he wants the second house so that he can entertain, and perhaps misbehave.

 

They have more than enough room, but are being selfish.  Typical of people nowadays.

 @purpleprincess1  @chattyone That's not even the point... When you're in a relationship, you have to have your privacy. Period. Even though they're not still engaged or married, mother-in-laws are not a good thing to have around when you're starting with someone new, regardless of how nice they are. Now, if the time passes by and there is no ring for Kandi and he's just taking advantage of the good life he's having with her, that would be a different thing. But according to the finale, he finally proposed... Anyway, when her mom made the comment about the guest house Kandi wasn't that excited about it. Why? Because she wants to be ALONE with her man!!!!

 Maybe he tried to contact her, but it got to be "You talk to me through my lawyer" type of situation.  Just maybe.  He did what was best for his family at the moment.  There is a child involved and the child loves Porsha from what we've read.  The filing of this petition for divorce could be the wake up call for Porsha....Kordell really means what he says THIS TIME AROUND.  He told her he did not want to be on a show like that anyway, but since he is sooooooCONTROLLING he ALLOWED her to persuade him into agreeing with certain conditions.  Kandi had mentioned the conditions to the women on one show.  It seems Porsha wanted more than she agreed to thereby putting the family's peace in jeopardy.

 I wanted to like Kordell, after all the sundays of watching him play. He always look like he's looking down on people. When he spoke he was condensending & correcting. 

  I just read he states in divorce filings Porscha neglected his son. What a cray thing to add.

 Poscha is young and seems like she wants to have fun on RHOA. I hope she comes back and we see the real Porscha. Faults and all.
