We’ve all heard the trouble in Orange County, saw Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna fight at the spray tan salon, and witnessed Theresa Guidice go to prison for identification fraud on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but things are focused on the drama between Porsha and Kandi on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And it isn’t about who gets renewed.
Back before Kandi was married to her current husband Todd and they were dating, another housewife named Kenya got jealous, which led to her fabricating this elaborate story about secretly dating an African prince who lives in Nigeria. I remember his name as Nimbasu but I could be wrong. Kenya even bought herself flowers and a car and then signed them from the alleged “prince” from Nigeria to convince the girls that he was not only real, but her boyfriend. Nobody believed her except poor naïve Porsha, who has always had her riffs with Kandi and Kenya. Now, the claws have reemerged for a new season.
Porsha Williams (who was recently on the new Celebrity Apprentice) claims that Kandi had a 7 year affair with a woman. Which sounds crazy, but Kandi’s husband Todd has been rumored to have a mistress in New York for years. The alleged mistress has not stepped forward or has been clarified, but the housewives suspect the person Todd meets up with in New York named “Marvin” is an alias for the woman.
The most far-fetched tale of Porsha’s Story Book is that Kandi and Todd drugged Porsha and “dragged her to their sex dungeon.” This all came out at one of the Housewife franchise’s iconic group dinners where the families get together and basically accuse others for causing their problems. Porsha was surprised not by Kandi’s scream-fest across the thousand dollar restaurant feast, but that Maui is in Hawaii. Meaning, she didn’t know Maui was American territory….point Kandi.
To quote Porsha, “I wasn’t gonna come at you but you came at me.”
To quote Kandi’s rebuttal, “I’m about to choke da sh*it out dis b*tch.”
Kandi has been in the limelight since she was 14 and has never touched drugs after growing up seeing how addiction can ruin lives. Also, Porsha should know how serious drug tests are on reality TV shows that have an impact to the overall brand such as E! News, Total Divas, even Keeping Up with the Kardashians. So I would assume the Housewives would follow suit and be drug tested, which would counteract her accusation of Kandi drugging her or even having possession of drugs.
Kandi and Todd have also been through rough patches on the show and have recently found a solution to their marriage issue, so this leaves me wondering, will they quit RHOA in order to stabilize their relationship? Normally we don’t see reality stars make the right choice, but NeNe Leakes left Atlanta and has since booked GLEE, Dancing with the Stars, talk shows and really cleaned up her image. Is Porsha’s drama enough to make Kandi quit?
