Touching NeNe's Ear

Kenya weighs in on the argument with NeNe and Porsha's marriage.

MY WILD RIDE

Did you miss me? That’s a rhetorical question of course. Of course you did! LOL! Have you missed my twirls, my curls, and my Gone with the Wind fabulousness? I’ve had the time of my life over the past year. My life has changed in such a positive way, it’s been a dream. My love life has drastically changed and I am so close to having everything in life I’ve always wanted.

Atlanta has been a huge change from Hollywood.  Bonding with some and others not so much.  I’ve experienced the hard way of learning how you can think you have a friend in some, but in actuality you have a “frenemy.” Friends comfort you in the time of need, offer sound advice and are a sounding board, are forgiving and nonjudgmental, perhaps most of all, show you compassion, care, and are sensitive toward you.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE REAL

I heart Gregg and NeNe as a couple and was so happy to learn that they would be getting re-married. I think he’s the balance that she needs.  NeNe makes an issue that I never called her to respond to her wedding invitation but took to Twitter to let everyone know that I had an invitation. FALSE.  Firstly, I personally texted her to tell her I would be in Africa at the time and would not be able to attend. So let’s keep it real with the real facts.

She took the time to out of her busy wedding planning schedule to ask me if I was coming via text. At that time I felt she could have also shared the info of her invitation to my ex. It wasn’t required of her, but in my upbringing, it would have been common courtesy to inform me personally. After all, I had spent the past Thanksgiving with her then sharing some very personal info about my ex with her.  NeNe had in the past looked out for me regarding the actions and personal attacks and vendetta my ex had against me prior to him acting on them. So clearly, NeNe knew where that relationship stood… All the more reason to inform me as a friend that she had invited him to her wedding.TOUCHING NENE’S EAR

I never raised my voice, I never attacked her nor called her out of her name. I’ve always been an affectionate person who touches, and I was simply trying to have a civilized conversation with NeNe. Therefore, touching her ear was not aggressive. And she clearly didn’t see it that way either.



PORSHA AND KORDELL

I can only speak for myself and I can honestly say I am not surprised. Porsha and I have had our differences, but I never want to see anyone go through pain or hardship. Even though Porsha has never apologized to me for anything she has said or done to me, including laughing, often taunting me with the fact that I wasn’t married or that my ex didn’t propose to me and reveling in my struggle, I still reached out to her when I heard the news of her divorce and wished her well.

With that said, I find it quite disturbing that Porsha and her family go on and on about the fact that Kordell may be gay. After all, she told the world she had a “picture perfect life” and married the “man of her dreams.”  Cut to Porsha sitting with the attorney agreeing to take him back if he abided by a “list.” Well, a thinking person with a brain would ask the question that if the main problem was that he is possibly gay, why would you want him back?  I don’t think Porsha is telling the whole truth. That’s always been my opinion of her and it remains the same after listening to her recall the “facts” about their marriage.
MY SEASON MY WAY

The show has a way of forcing you to be more retrospective about your behavior. I am in a good place, but I have the experiences I have had on this show to partially thank for that. Life is about growth and that is sometimes painful. The key for me is to be willing to look deeper and from that be willing to have culpability for your own actions.

There will be foolishness and fools, love and loss, pain and gain, friends and enemies, union and reunions, users and losers, and housewives and husbands navigating life. It will be a wild ride! Stay tuned!


The wild card,

Kenya

Phaedra: I Do What's Best for My Children

Phaedra Parks responds to criticism over not bringing her children to see Apollo.

Bravotv.com: Did you ever get to see NeNe perform in Cinderella?
Phaedra Parks: I most certainly did see NeNe on Broadway, and she was absolutely fantastic, as you would expect. Her performance was dazzling and I was particularly impressed with how she made the role her own. It can be difficult to portray such a well-known character, let alone add your own style and flair to such an established role. One of the best parts of watching NeNe on stage was seeing her so happy; she was enjoying every minute of it and was absolutely glowing. I’m looking forward to seeing whatever is next for my friend.

Bravotv.com: You’re getting some criticism for not taking the kids to see Apollo; why haven’t you taken them?
PP: Despite the fact that I’m on a reality show, there are some things in my life that are off-limits. People who watch the show only get one slice of the entire Phaedra pie, and it’s unfair to make judgments about someone, or a situation, without having all the information. The one thing I will say is that every single decision I make is based on one thing: the well-being of my two boys. It’s easy for people to ask why she did that or why she isn’t doing this, but the simple truth is unless you are in that situation yourself, you really can’t make that judgment. I do my best to make smart decisions after carefully considering all options and consulting with experts and others who advise me. I know in my heart that everything I do is based on what is best for my children.
