It’s been a minute since I given y’all some MAJOR dish, & so much s#it has happened so let’s get it in!! On April 4, 2014 (which happens to be Bey & Jay’s wedding anniversary), Kandi & Todd (despite all of Mama Payne’s b#tchin, oops, I mean Mama Joyce) FINALLY “jumped the broom,” & sharing in the occasion was fellow RHOA stars Phaedra, Porsha, & Cynthia (Kenya was away filming “Celebrity Apprentice” & NeNe is filming “Dancing with the Stars”), Fantasia, Sherri Shepherd, Monica, Rasheeda & Kirk (yep, they still holdin’ on) of “LHHATL”, & many others.
Kandi sparkled as she was escorted down the aisle by her mom (yes, Mama Joyce was on her best behavior…. too bad it didn’t last long, & we’ll get to that in a minute). as Todd anxiously awaited his beautiful bride. Kandi & Todd were all smiles & tears as they recited their vows before family, friends, & cameras (that’s right! We’re gonna have ANOTHER RHOA wedding spinoff. First Kim, then NeNe, now Kandi)!! According to reports, the lovely bride’s wedding was SOLELY inspired by the Eddie Murphy film, “Coming to America.” No shade, but when I saw Kandi’s wedding dress, I was not getting the “Coming to America” vibe (unless I missed something, did Lisa REALLY marry Prince Akeem in a gown that looks like she strangled an ostrich??? Could someone look that up for me, & get back to me? Thanks). From asking the guests to arrive in purple, to having lions in cages (okay, the tiara, color purple, & caged lions, NOW I see the Coming to America theme ). Just take a look at some of these pics:
All jokes aside, Kandi did look beautiful, & Todd was overjoyed!! As Kandi stated in In Touch Weekly, “This is one of the best days of my life! I never imagined that I would marry my best friend. Todd’s been that to me,” Kandi told In Touch. “And to have just had the wedding of my dreams, it’s all been so beautiful. Now it’s time to party!” I wish Kandi & Todd all the happiness in the world. Due to a crazy work schedule, the newlyweds haven’t jet setted off to their honeymoon, but one is planned for the nearby future, but it’s obvious that Kandi is happier than ever.
MAMA JOYCE IS AT IT AGAIN!!!!
Kandi & Todd are OFFICIALLY husband & wife, so now they can bask in their wedded bliss, right? Not when Mama Joyce is around!! During a recent interview, Mama Joyce, once again, voiced her discontent with Kandi & Todd’s relationship. In spite of being on her best behavior, Mama Joyce STILL has “concerns” about the marriage stating, “I didn’t really pay any attention to him, she said. We didn’t talk. I was very nice. It was her decision to make to marry him and she says she’s happy and she didn’t see anything wrong with him so she did it. Everyone was very nice and there weren’t any fights.”
Then, Mama Joyce took this opportunity to set Cynthia Bailey straight, “Besides what Cynthia says, our family doesn’t fight all the time. It was a very classy wedding and everybody had a nice time.” Despite having a peaceful ceremony, Mama Joyce STILL has doubts about if the marriage will last. “Time will tell, but I only pray that I’m wrong and that they do last,” she said. “But I don’t see how they can.” Real talk, Kandi, now that you’re married, if your marriage is gonna stand a chance in hell of lasting, you’re gonna have to create BOUNDARIES with your mom. You may have to put a GAG ORDER on this woman, you haven’t even been married a week, & she’s already throwing stones. Newsflash, Todd out up with this while y’all your dating, he’s NOT gonna take it during the marriage!! At some point, something’s gotta give, & you may have to choose between Mama Joyce & Todd, & show this woman that if she’s not gonna respect you, then she’s gonna have to live the rest of her life WITHOUT YOU IN IT!!!
Kenya vs Porsha vs the rest of RHOA
As you all have already heard, there was a Smackdown between Kenya vs Porsha at the RHOA season 6 taping a few weeks ago, & rumors have been swirling that Porsha “put them paws on Kenya,” & Kenya called “the po po” (yesss, gawd, Kenya called the law). Since there’s a “no physicality” clause in bravo contracts (ALLEGEDLY), it has been reported that Porsha was quickly escorted off the set, & was asked to leave. Making Porsha the first cast member of the ENTIRE Real Housewives franchise to be kicked off the reunion…. EVER (so much for that paycheck).
Real talk, it’s no secret that Porsha’s a$$ was on the chopping block LONG BEFORE this altercation at the RHOA reunion, so I wonder if Porsha pulled this stunt with hopes of returning next season. While some will say that Porsha reacted to Kenya’s comments (supposedly about Porsha’s marriage to Kordell(ia)), & wanted to shut her up once & for all. I simply think it was a dumb move on Porsha’s part! Now there’s reports saying that the RHOA cast, in general, are staging a walkout if Kenya stays, & Porsha leaves (leading the charge is Phaedra & NeNe). Well, here’s how I see it: Cynthia can’t afford to quit since her & Peter are ALWAYS going for broke! Cynthia, Phaedra, & Porsha should leave (Phaedra’s got WAY TOO MUCH going on to come back next season, Cynthia is weak, & Porsha’s just plain stupid)! NeNe, if you want all the attention so damn bad, why don’t you just get your own spin off like Kim Zolciak??? Also, I’m surprised that Kandi (who doesn’t really need RHOA) is joining these heffas (so much for having a mind of your own). Why not ban wannabe Apollo Creed’s a$$ since he viciously attacked Brandon! BTW, NeNe, if you’re such a “rich b#%ch,” then WHY are you trying so damn hard to stay on RHOA???
And if that’s not enough, while leaving a restaurant in LA, NeNe defended Porsha, & wants Bravo to “kick Kenya’s fake booty off.” Real talk: NeNe seems to forget in season 4 of RHOA Phaedra, Sheree, & Kim wanted nothing to do with her (her & Kandi were going back n forth). So the only cast member who was filming with her was Cynthia, that’s when Marlo was brought on board. Marlo was supposed to join Phaedra, Sheree, Kandi, & Kim, but when that plan fell apart, then she joined #Team NeNe! Now, NeNe is the HBIC of RHOA, & wants nothing to with ANYONE who can’t play by her rules (Sheree got fired, Kim has her own show, Kandi & Phaedra stays in their lane, Cynthia is weak, & Porsha is dumb. So that leaves the Marlo & Kenya who can defend themselves AGAINST NeNe). I use to be a die-hard fan of NeNe, BUT after the “pillow talk” incident, I haven’t seen her the same way since. One thing I will say about NeNe is, love her or hate her, she knows how to keep things interesting, JUST LIKE KENYA! IMO, Peter is more of a housewife than Cynthia, & don’t think for 1 second all is forgiven after NeNe called Peter a b#%ch (if anything, Peter’s a$$ is probably working behind the scenes to get NeNe fired). IMO, Kenya, Marlo, Sheree, Kandi, NeNe, & Kim Zolciak should be in season 7 of RHOA! Either this lineup, or bring ALL new people. I have a better idea! How about they keep the current lineup, BUT replace Cynthia with Patricia (oops, I mean Peter), replace Porsha with Miss Lawrence, & replace Phaedra with Derek J??? LOL Bottom line: Bravo has to make money, & NeNe+Kenya= BIG DRAMA, & Big Drama + High Ratings= BIG MONEY!!! In other words, love ’em or hate ’em, Kenya & NeNe ARE NOT going anywhere. Poor Kenya, from allegedly getting “knocked the f#ck out,” to losing poor Velvet (yess, lovelies, Kenya’s little puppy is in “dog heaven” now), to being accused of faking Velvet’s death for a storyline (which I DO NOT believe), I can’t wait for this reunion (I will not be recapping RHOA S6E21 cause besides Kenya grieving over Velvet’s death, Porsha’s lack of interest in rehearsal for “A Mother’s Love” (which turned out VERY good), & NeNe passing up “million dollar scripts” cause they’re “beneath her” (she’s a trip), nothing gossip worthy happened).
LIL MO IS SPAZZING OUT OVER NEW BOO!
I don’t know what’s going on with Lil Mo, but whatever this new young boyfriend of hers is doing, he got Lil Mo braggin like crazy! In a recent interview, Lil Mo has been “spillin the tea” about her “not so perfect marriage” to her ex, Philip Bryant, “There was a certain image I wanted to maintain and that’s the face of family because I believe in that,” Lil Mo said to Philly’s Hot 107.9. “The image that I put out there, I’ll maintain it until the season is over.” Lil Mo’s “new boo” is Karl Dargan, who’s 7 years her junior (yes ma’am, Lil Mo’s a cougar). While there’s been some criticism as to how fast she’s moved on from her “soon to be ex husband,” Lil Mo could care less than a damn about us skeptics (me being one of them, UNTIL I get more details). Lil Mo has also stated that marriage IS on the horizon (slow your roll, Mo, cause you’re not divorced from ole boy yet)! “I’m like the hood Kim Kardashian and the ratchet Elizabeth Taylor. I’ll get married 10 times because I always believe in love. I’m not going to just be his girl; we’re going to get married,” Lil Mo says. Real talk, I would NEVER try to mirror my love life after Kim Kardashian & Liz Taylor, just a thought!!!
To further prove to all of us that this relationship with her “nephew” (oops, I mean “new boo”) is real, she wrote a song about it! It’s a remix to Nicki Minaj’s version of “Lookin A$$.” If you’ve heard the original version, then you know it’s a diss record to all the trifling men out here. Well Lil Mo put together a verse dissing weak men and jealous women all up on her instagram page, voicing their disapproval of her personal life. While this is VERY DIFFERENT from what I’m use to from Lil Mo, her flow is impressive. Decide for yourself, see you next time!
