1. One Shady Act Deserves Another
The book of Matthew urges readers to “turn the other cheek,” but the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars had no problem confessing that when mistreated, they live more by the “eye for an eye” scripture.
When host Andy Cohen brought up Kenya Moore’s cancer scare, she reiterated that only two of her castmates reached out to her. Porsha Stewart, who was not one of those two, justified her lack of apparent compassion for Kenya by reminding the former Miss USA that she didn’t show any concern for Porsha when she was dealing with a fertility issue. Likewise, Kandi Burruss reminded Kenya, who was complaining about Phaedra Parks’ verbal attacks, that Phaedra’s words followed Kenya’s decision to release her own workout DVD. Kenya used a similar justification to explain why she showed up to NeNe Leakes’ shoe event in an outfit that clearly mocked Phaedra’s Anguilla coverup. Since Phaedra said mean things about Kenya, Kenya retaliated with butt pads.
So, apparently one bad act can serve as a catalyst for several others. Nowhere down the line did anyone decide to just be the bigger person and not behave in an equally disappointing manner. That is, except for Cynthia Bailey. When she and Kenya first met, the ladies clashed. Kenya was rude to Cynthia’s Bailey Agency staff and her JET Beauty contestants. However, she didn’t retaliate by “cutting to the white meat” or banning Kenya from her future events. She addressed her issues with Kenya in a timely manner and was able to squash their beef. It seems Cynthia may be able to teach more than walking down a runway. Pay attention, ladies.
