The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta headed south of the border this week, to a vacation retreat hosted by the inimitable Kenya Moore. While she was doing her damnedest to stir the pot (all while wearing tasteless ponchos and sombreros), strangely, the drama was coming from the last place we'd suspect -- one of the real house-husbands! Oh lord preserve us.
It wasn't Gregg Leakes, sadly -- and more's the pity. Instead, it was Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter Thomas who got just as catty as the rest of the broads, digging up dirt about Porsha Stewart's dunzo union with her one-time hubby Kordell Stewart. It didn't take very long for things to get damned heated. Somebody pour out those margaritas, y'all! It's getting spicy in here! Or something? Sorry, I'm drunk and don't know what I'm saying. Enchilada drunk, naturally.
Before heading out to indulge Kenya's latest scheme, Peter went and had tea with Kordell. I wish I were kidding. I also wish that they had worn hats and eaten tiny sandwiches throughout. Sadly, neither of things happened. But a girl can dream. Instead, Peter gave his buddy Kordell a chance to speak out about his failed marriage, and what he had to say was pretty shocking. I mean, in as far as anything that happens on a reality television show can ever be really shocking.
Kordell dished major dirt. He claimed that Porsha's family was the reason they got a divorce. For real, a true thing I am not making up -- Kordell mentioned Porsha's mom eating pizza on a cream-colored sofa as one of the many reasons he eventually ended things. There go my dreams of marrying Kordell, you guys. I guess I will just marry this pepperoni pizza instead. I take thee oil stains, to have and to hold, from this day forward, until I finish eating you, and then order a calzone.
Kordell also implied -- well, he flat-out said -- that Porsha's irresponsible with money and lost the only property she ever owned before entering her marriage. Peter decided that the best place to talk about this was in Mexico. He kind of weirdly attacked Porsha? She got on the defensive, and while the episode cut things short, I feel like we'll be revisiting this subject next week for sure.
Do you think it's fair for Peter to switch sides like this?
