When Drew Sidora took the ladies on a girls’ trip to New Orleans on the April 4 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she decided to surprise them with something “super dope.” But when her cast mates walked into the kitchen and realized it was time for a cooking class, they weren’t totally thrilled to see what Drew had in store for them. (As Porsha Williams put it, “I gotta put on an apron and cook? Um, hello! I’m on vacation!”) Of course, they all changed their tune when they realized what they were really about to do: learn to make “booty poppin’ potatoes” with recording artist and kitchen diva, Big Freedia.
After the women had some fun cooking dinner, they sat down together for a meal with Big Freedia. But after only a few minutes of enjoying what they’d whipped up in the kitchen, things started to go south when tensions arose in relation to a situation between Marlo Hampton, Kenya Moore and Porsha. As the conversation got heated, Big Freedia seemed to be quite confused, and eventually said “I’m very lost,” before getting up from the table.
A few of the ladies had some strong opinions about what went down that night, with Kandi Burruss saying, “Why are you trying to embarrass us in front of Big Freedia?” in an interview during the episode, and Drew adding, “It was a completely slap in the face to show our asses in front of Big Freedia and disrespectful to not put all our differences aside in an effort to be gracious.”
So what did Big Freedia think of the night? Well, if Instagram is any indication, it seems like there were no hard feelings. In an Instagram Story, she shared two photos from the night, writing, “Appreciate y’all” and “thanks for having me.”
Drew also shared some memories from the dinner, writing, “Thanks [Big Freedia] for being my special guest and showing us gals how to make some booty poppin’ potatoes... make sure y’all tune in for the craziness ‘cause you already knoooow.”
Shamea Morton also shared a selfie, writing, “I LOVE ME SOME [Big Freedia].”
Kandi posted a group photo with the caption “Our fav [Big Freedia] hung out with us.”
