Kenya's the Ring Leader of Drama

Porsha thinks Kenya should not have tried to bring NeNe and Marlo together.

Hello loves, I hope you had an awesome weekend! My weekend was pretty epic. I was on WWHL Sunday with RuPaul, the queen himself! AMAZEBALLS, love him! I was so busy right up to the time I had to fly into NY that I had not gotten the chance to watch the new episode. Therefore I watched it with all of you! So let’s hop to it.
 
First let me make it clear that Team Naked did win overall at the Bailey Bowl! There was a lot of drama, but yes, even with that over-the-top dog and pony show Kandi and her team came out with, they did not win. LOL! I celebrated our victory at the Bailey Bowl showdown with an over-the-top twerking dance.
 
Speaking of showdown, WTH?! I was so in shock. Here we are once again at what was supposed to be a fun and friendly competition, and all hell breaks loose. Well let me tell you what I saw (in my ol' gossiping auntie voice, LOL!). At the end of the last game everybody was celebrating and arguing at the same time. Mainly because they weren't clear on who won. I didn't get into the argument because it wasn't needed; I knew we had won and it would come out, so why fight about it. However, it wasn't just a competitive battle on the field apparently; there was an emotional battle of friendships crumbling as well. I realized this when I saw Kenya, the ring leader for anything that will create drama, walking Marlo over to NeNe. The first thought that crossed my mind was why is Kenya taking Marlo to NeNe?! We all knew that NeNe was not in a good place with Marlo, and it was obvious that NeNe was avoiding Marlo all day. Why exactly she was doing that I didn't know nor did I care. I’m very competitive, therefore I was not focused on drama. I know for a fact that there were no good intentions behind Kenya forcing those two to talk. Another time and place minus kids and family, yes, here, NO! Any who, I'm standing there and Kenya brings Marlo over to NeNe. At this point NeNe is about two feet from her younger son. So then I see Marlo going in on NeNe, chasing after her and screaming, cussing, and fussing. Well to make a long story short it looked like NeNe, who you would think would lay somebody out who acted like that with her, was running for cover. But she was going to get her son and leave the scene. My guess is she didn't want to argue in front of him (or worse the way this group is).

Was she scared of Marlo? We shall never know, but look, we are not in grade school. We don't fight people because they don't want to be our friends, LOL! My overall take is they were friends and had love for each other. Somewhere from wedding day to the Bailey Bowl true colors on either side had come out full of jealousy, betrayal, heartbreak, etc.
 
I know firsthand how sensitive NeNe can be when it comes to her friendships. She is the type of girl who wants you to communicate with her at all times. I feel like she wants all her friends to move as one crew on the same page with one mind. Meaning if one person doesn't like that heffa, then you don't need to like that heffa. Now for me, I agree and disagree. I agree, because I get a bad taste in my mouth when you’re my girl and you are getting close to someone who clearly has nothing but bad things to say about me. Really at end of the day what can you add to that type of conversation but agree with the enemy? On the other hand, we are all grown, and if you choose to be cool with my enemy, the outcome (if I love you) will be that I may not cut you off, but you definitely will be in a different "friend" category. You will be placed in the category of the chick I go have cocktails with and shop with, but for sure NOT the one I will tell my business to. The choice is up to you.
 
People know what they are doing and why! Most intentions come from the heart. Half of the time we know who we can trust and who we can't. At the end of the day when someone is using you or being an "opportunist," nine times out of ten you know it, but you allow it because you are using them as well. So don't be surprised when it blows up! Simply dust off your Chanel and carry on with life. Most people are only around for a season, and once their purpose in your life is fulfilled, God will reveal who they are and make it easy for you to move forward and go even higher. Well guys, sorry it was so long, but last blog you said I didn't talk about the show enough and now I can't shut up, LOL! (Giggles!)
 
Love you! Until next time!
 
"Live, Love, Life"

 

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
