Nothing brings division among the cast of a reality show like a falling-out between two co-stars. The most recent feud on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” home-front has been between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore. After being unable to reach an agreement on what Kenya should be compensated for producing Phaedra and Apollo’s “Donkey Booty” workout DVD, Kenya dropped the project altogether and began pursuing her own “Stallion Booty” workout video.
Nene Leakes made it clear during last Sunday’s episode that she would prefer a “stallion booty” over a “donkey booty”. Many were surprised by her response, considering her friendship with Phaedra. But, in her most recent blog entry on Bravo.com, Nene says friend or no friend, right is right and wrong is wrong.
“This past episode was all about being an a**, LOL! Me personally, I like to roll with Team Right! Friend or no friend! Let me take you back a minute. Remember when Phaedra was going to represent Sheree in her child support case? Phaedra made it clear that she doesn’t work for free, and she supposedly had to chase sheer down for 5k before she would start the proceedings. We are all in businesses that we hope will make us money, and doing business with friends is always a tricky thing. It’s funny how the two of them pride themselves on being such business women but didn’t have enough business sense to have a contract upfront. My thoughts are this: from what I could see on the show, Phaedra didn’t think Kenya deserved to be paid. If Kenya was going to help produce Phaedra’s donkey booty video, she should be paid for her efforts and hard work… Now if I have to choose between a donkey or stallion booty, I will go with a stallion because it just sounds and looks better…”
Kandi Burruss had no problem expressing where she stood on the debate during Sunday’s episode. She further expounded on why she took the stance that she did during Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
“Kenya was planning to do another tape with almost the same name, I was like, ‘That’s foul.’ I had no problem with talking to Kenya about it obviously, because to me that was not cool.”
Housewife Porsha Stewart’s live tweeting on Sunday made it evident that she was Team Phaedra. Of course, no one expected her to be Team Kenya anyway.
“That’s very professional to use a clients ideas.*sideeye*”
“Who’s side are you on in this Animal BOOTY Fest?! Donkey Booty or Stallion Booty??? Quick tutorial Donkey=A** Stallion=MALE A**
#RHOA,” she tweeted.
Cynthia Bailey’s tweets, however, were indicative of her neutrality.
“I am Team Model Booty! Now what else is going on?”
“I have had issues with both Kenya & Phaedra in the past. I am not BFF’s with either.”
What is your opinion on the falling-out between Phaedra and Kenya? Was Kenya justified in pursuing a workout video with a concept almost identical to Phaedra’s?
