Last night was the premiere of the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 7. It was definitely a lot going on.
The big storyline of this season has started with Phaedra and Apollo. The season starts on the day Apollo got sentenced to prison for 8 years. Phaedra took the children to a hotel and did not show up to the court appearance. Apollo was very angry about this. Other people have said Phaedra was wrong for not supporting him. I personally feel that when someone consciously commits crimes and is then caught, they are pretty much on their own. Apollo defrauded retired people out of their money. A despicable crime that he was fully aware he committed. He did not need to do it in order to feed his children. He did it because he felt a way about Phaedra being the breadwinner. As opposed to going out and trying to find a legitimate business or even build one of his own, he decided to make money illegally. This is after he was in prison not long ago for stealing cars.
I don’t feel like Phaedra should have to stand behind Apollo. I don’t necessarily know if she suspected what Apollo was doing or if she should have asked more questions about his living, but if she believed he was working and he was out there being a criminal then she does not owe him anything. She did not commit the crimes so she should not have to suffer. No one should have sympathy for him. He doesn’t even seem remorseful. She’s going to have to raise 2 children on her own now. I really don’t get how he isn’t more understanding of what he has done to her. If he should be angry at anybody it should be himself. Where was his consideration when he was out there bad? So I guess we’ll see how that plays out.
Meanwhile, Kenya is still whining about Portia laying hands at last season’s reunion. Now I don’t support violence, however, if someone were calling me a whore through a megaphone in my face, I can’t promise that they won’t catch these hands. Now she’s trying to act like Cynthia is her friend. I think Cynthia is cool, but she is very flimsy. I agree with Nene, she does tend to go whichever way the wind blows. It will be interesting to see what she does without Nene.
Apparently, Kandi and Todd are trying to have a baby & still having issue with Kandi’s mother. That’s still a mess. Nene is going to be in yet another show. I respect her hustle. She is very funny and very entertaining, which is why she is the standout.
This season should be interesting. They haven’t even introduced the new cast members Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney yet. If you want to get in on the drama, tune in to Bravo Sunday nights at 8/7c.
