Something tells us Kenya Moore and Kim Fields are never going to be friends again. And after Kenya's behavior in Jamaica on tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, that doesn't seem like such a major loss for Kim.
This feud that Kenya has concocted between herself and the former Facts of Life star nothing more than her stubborn pride has now boiled over and taken on some collateral damage with the nasty way she spoke about Kim's husband Chris. And to be honest, all of the women's behavior poolside when Kenya brought up the supposed rumors about Chris' sexuality was abhorrent.
"I know y'all have heard the rumors. They call him Chrissy," Kenya told the ladies after Kim had gone to her room to prepare for the commercial shoot in the morning.
"Who calls him that?" Phaedra Parks asked, after calling him "high-strung and sassy."
"The industry," she shot back. "For the last ten years, there have been pervasive rumors about Kim's husband."
Most of the women cackled and laughed at Kenya's insinuations, joining in on the joking about Chris' personality, commenting on his past as a Broadway singer and dancer, as if that is a emasculating career choice for only the flaming gay and fellas on the down low. Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey were visibly uncomfortable throughout the conversation, but didn't say a word when they had every opportunity to open their mouths and shut the conversation down.
These women, who have all paraded their gay BFFs around in seasons past as if they're an accessory no fabulous women should be without, mustn't have that much actual respect for gay men because their tasteless gossip illuminated an idea that being gay is the most embarrassing thing a man could be. After all, if it wasn't, why would Kenya want to use it as another attempt to take down her bitter enemy? It was a seriously icky moment and we couldn't help but wonder what Andy Cohen thought while watching at home.
Luckily, the following night, Sheree wasn't so willing to let her co-stars off the hook when they started singing a different tune about Chris (who had gone home early for work) to Kim's face. "The conversation about Chris is much different that last night," she said in her voice over. "I can't deal with it. I am allergic to fake s--t."
And then she straight up told Kim what the ladies said. The looks on the faces as each realized they were about to be held accountable for what they'd done were truly priceless. It's just a shame we'll have to wait until next week to see how it all unfolds.
- "I think he might be a Broadway actress." Seriously, that was some dirty mess Kenya displayed tonight. We wonder how her bestie Brandon feels about it.
- Peter and Gregg putting Matt through the wringer during drinks with the guys was typical Peter BS. He loves to him of himself as the big dog among the husbands, huh? And this line from Gregg to Matt, a 28-year-old unmarried man, has he seriously wondering what he believes a man should do before turning 30: "You don't have any children at all? There ain't nothing wrong with you, is it?"
- Sheree and NeNe watching Kenya float on down to Cuba with Matt on that little paddle boat instead of support Cynthia during the commercial shoot was hysterical. "What is she doing? Giving a BJ?" Between that and her newly-diagnosed allergy to BS, Sheree's is tonight's MVP.
