No. 3 - Tardy for the Party
I'm pretty sure only NeNe could face down five other Housewives at once and turn them away at the door (a scary/daunting propsect). But that's exactly what she did, so lesson learned -- don't show up at Chez NeNe three hours late for an event.
Now the question on everyone's mind is why NeNe wouldn't just let them in. Sure, being that late for a dinner party is pretty egregious, but they could at least see the house and socialize for a bit, right? Well I think I have figured out why NeNe was so incredibly miffed -- Tardy for the Party. Given NeNe's rocky history with Kim and that song, I'm guessing that a subliminal level that association made NeNe irrationally angry at the girls for being tardy to her party. Mystery solved.
Nene was right not to let them in . You had told them not to come . After they were that late . Kandi was messy from the time she got there . In her blog she said that it was no food there . They show them eating the appetizers she had for them . Nobody has time for her mess.
nene ass was wrong for setting up a party an they just in town , why didnt she throw the party at the house she rented for them . i think her drawers are getting to big . act like a grandma please an not a ghetto glamma
Your reason makes sense but also, Nene wanted to brag and show off and 2 of her guests that she wanted to meet the ladies had already left by the time the girls showed up so there was no one else there to really impress. Nene is all about show. She honestly believes she's fabulous. My opinion, she's fabulously goofy and someone please tell her those red thongs does not look nice on anyone grandma! It's not proper or ghetto to show up 3 hours late anywhere. It causes negative comments to be made about the food, the service, and everything because things get wilted and old and tired. I'm surprised at Cynthia for letting it happen since she is Nene's "supposedly" good friend.
I just watched this episode and it was absolutely the best ever. That dinner party HA! Kandi's face made me laugh out loud literally.
Tis is not on the relatd subject. I was just channel flipping and came upon the Style channel. Guess what! They were showing re-runs of RHOA for this season. Has this show switched from Bravo to Style?
One would think that a "Hollywood actress" such as NeNe, who has been flying back and forth from Atlanta to LA would have realized that maybe inviting her out-of-town guests to a dinner party the same day everyone was flying out to LA might not be the best idea. She's well aware of a long flight, travelling between several time zones, and a long ride to the house from the airport would be tiring for her guests. They were rude to show up several hours late. NeNe's shown up late to events in Atlanta as well--after all, you can't make an "appearance" if you're on time, can you? And her behavior on WWHL Sunday night was classless. And she's got her "yes" girl Cynthia there as her "back-up"
3 hours late does not even deserve a conversation These woman were just rude NeNe was justified not to let them in.
kandi clowning about that dinner plate in the limo car with Kenya was absolutely hilarious.lol
I understand the difference between regular time and cp time, but three hours would piss anyone off. The food doesn't Look fresh, your makeup is no longer fresh and the only thing boiling is your temper. Get it together ladies.
I’ve been reading some of the early comments on Derek J’s blog and would like to play “Devil’s Advocate” on only one issue… Bravo viewers please don’t beat me down …. My only question is this, why would Nene plan a dinner party with the ladies as “guests of honor” on the same day they arrived in LA? There is a 3 hour time difference between ATL & LA and keeping in mind that we don’t know the exact time of their arrival, the girl’s are already-mentally-3 hours ahead in time. This dinner party started at 9pm LA time which is 12 midnight ATL time. They arrived at Nene’s a quarter to midnight LA time which is a quarter to 3am ATL time… Of course we as viewers are never privy to any of the first-hand info and I totally understand why Nene would turn them away but given the fact that these ladies are never on time, this party should have happened the next day when they could’ve had time to get their minds together.
Mimi_Fletch I agree 100% and did write that on Derek J's page. Viewers must have forgotten that the group was not in ATL, which if they were would be inexcusable.....
Mimi_Fletch that is true - but they should have told her that they were definitely to tired - sorry but we can't make it. Nene would still have been upset but at least she would have known.
cheriefran Mimi_Fletch It was all kind of poor planning on everyone’s end. Nene said that was the only day she had off work. Maybe they should have all met for something informal at the beautiful rental house. If Nene rented that house for them, she went over and beyond measure of being a gracious host.
NeNe was nicer than she needed to be; you don't show up 3 hours late to a dinner and still expect to be let in.
Three hours is ridiculously late when the party is in your honor! I don't blame NeNe as this was total disrespect. As NeNe said on WWHL she had to purchase items to entertain them since she just moved in and on top of that was working 14 hours/day.
Porsha is so miscast on this show...way out of her league. I couldn't tell if they were coffee pods or creamers but I have to believe that Kenya knows the difference between the two and she said that what Porsha was holding was creamer. If that were the only instance of her not quite being with it....265 days yr, being 'pertured,' wanting to eat yams to have twins, 'guilty 'til proven guilty, etc. etc. etc. She belongs on a teen show...not a show with grown people. Her husband in insufferable. Please spare us next season!
Pearlz those were coffee pods not creamer and Kenya as WRONG! Get off of Porsha's back already - she knew exactly what they were.
Kenya sure did and was also very aware that they were being filmed when she asked that stupid question. Kenya felt she was setting Porsha up. I'm sure Kenya didn't understand instructions as to how to operate this new style of coffee maker when she first saw one. Maybe if there is a coffee maker in Porsha's home, it may not be like this one. It may be a much more modern and expensive one, if they drink coffee. Like I said Kenya is still trying to dig at Porsha.
EloiseM cheriefran IF you are right that they were coffee pods and not creamer...okay, I'll give her one. It doesn't change Porsha's history with the examples that I mentioned and the examples that several others shared in response to my post. I repeat, Porsha is out of her league on this show!
I was looking at that pot I would have had trouble also I have never used one I am still using the od style
@Pearlz .... I totally agree with you. Three hours is way too late to attend a catered event with other guests there to meet you! Another favorite Porsha misnomer was when she was describing her singing voice - she said it was a CONGLOBERATION of 3 famous singers. Can't wait to hear her sing now, lol.
I sooooo agree that Miss Kenya USA let's not.forget that, is a big dose of crazy mean! That woman does have issues & scary mental states that there is not enough Prozac in the country to help her? Delusional, self serving and all about Kenya! I'm so over mean girls, ladies it is the new millium and if we don't hold each other to higher standards we will still be fighting for equality in the next! Just had to blow some steam out, love Bravo but please edit yourselves for no one else will!
I'm with you Wendi - the mean girl thing is old! I'm sick of it. When I get around women like that, I quickly remove myself from the room. I don't like to be in a crowd of women these days because of the hidden agenda that someone always have. Whatever happen to friends who don't make nasty remarks about the one that has to go to the bathroom or the one who leaves the table for whatever reason. I don't think it's cute or funny when someone else is being hurt behind a comment while everyone else is laughing. Women are the worse species ever and I'm sorry to say I am one but nothing like the majority. Peace to you Wendi!
Well, not all coffee makers are the same, and you cannot fault someone for not knowing how to operate it. Kenya is so full of comments and so desperate to find a husband. She only cooked so single men could watch the show and say I want a woman who cooks.
Nene may live in LA but she is not LA. In a town where people eat at 2am I can understand the misconception on the ladies part. However, Nene isn't about to let these southern women get off being tardy for event and keeping her up.
Really, this show is becoming a YAWN.
Am I the only that knows that those were not CREAMERS - they were Kcups (filled w/coffee) for the coffee maker. stop it already - I have that maker and when people 1st saw it they asked how does it work. but now you see it all over in businesses, etc. so get off it already. I'm sure Portia knows how to make coffee - just wasn't familiar with that type.
I'm loving all the shows on Bravo, Very entertaining, BUT I'm so over this cast of ladys I KNOW ATL has some of the most beautiful inteligant HOUSEWIVES, PLEASE get rid of most this cast and start with KENYA MOORE who made a fool out of herself and lied to the Bravo network....AGAIN I'M THE BIGEST FAN OF ALL THE BRAVO SHOWS
I only watch rhoa and this is my first season doing so. However, I will look into the other shows. I truly believe show would be greater.....IF KENYA MOORE WAS REMOVED. I can't see the housewives on here wanting to even want to work with her. To add decency at a higher level we need the Stewarts. That way three types of marriages would be shown. The public, who no doubt see marriages based on people's personal ideas of what a marriage will be able to see the difference. And see the results of their decisions.
Nene was right and had every right to be furious and do exactly what she did. Nobody, and I mean Nobody, even Atlanta so called "ladies", dares to show up 3 frickin hours late for a sit down dinner and expect to be welcomed with open arms and smiles of joy to see them.
