Last week’s episode of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” featured an early entry for worst charity host of 2014. Chuck Smith, former NFL player, invited NeNe and Phaedra back to their old High School in Athens, Georgia for a Boys and Girls club event. Finally the ladies participating in a no drama event for the betterment of others. At least it felt like than until Chuck turned a car ride back from the school into a bizarre boasting session.
Chuck Smith was living the life of a NFL millionaire in the early 90s, and that meant sleeping around. Chuck dated both Phaedra and Kandi at one point, and during the car ride he made it clear that he saw both women at the same time. Phaedra tried to brush those claims off, but Chuck’s anger went from 0-60. Chuck claimed he was lying to tons of women back then, including Phaedra. The best part is when Phaedra popped his balloon by commenting that this “took place twenty years ago”.
Obviously Chuck’s bank account is not as liquid as it once was. That barb silenced Chuck, but raised questions between Kandi and Phaedra. According to Bravo’s synopsis of tonight’s episode the overlap between the two ladies dating Chuck will be settled.
The ladies come together for Cynthia’s sister Malorie’s jewelry trunk show, but tensions flare between Kenya and Malorie. NeNe is hit with unexpected news and emotions reach a boiling point when one of the ladies makes a dramatic exit.
There isn’t one happy cast member this season. Cynthia and her husband Peter are racing towards divorce. Kenya is still searching for relevancy and a new catchphrase. NeNe is failing at staying above the fray. Throw in the drama between Kandi and Momma Joyce, and you’ve got a miserable group of women. With all of the tears the show is becoming an emotional support group. Be there tonight for all of the new drama.
