The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s season 5 finale ended with a bang. Kenya Moore is throwing her “iconic black women in film” party where the Housewives dress up as famous black celebrities. Kenya tells Porsha that she has to dress up as Halle Berry in BAPS. She also reveals that the whole reason she’s throwing the party in the first place is because Porsha said that she’s “old” and her accomplishments are irrelevant. Kenya is just as sensitive as she is irrational.
Phaedra Parks brings Kandi Burruss with her to play around with her “Phaedra Sparks” line of stun guns. She hopes that Kandi will begin selling her stun guns with her Bedroom Kandi sex toy line. Phay Phay is ghetto and I wish she would lose the fake ‘Southern Belle’ accent and just be real. She’s chasing the dollar and she’s looking far from boughetto in the process.
Phaedra is supposed to be a celebrity attorney, a funeral director, a workout video star and now she has a line of stun guns. She looks desperate and that’s why Phaedra has yet to create one successful business. She doesn’t know how to pursue her interests. Every few months she’s trying to do something new and everyone sees right through it.
Porsha brings her husband Kordell with her to her counseling session. Kordell says that his arguments with his wife last “Five, ten seconds” and that if Porsha wants to win a fight it won’t happen. “If it’s about winning, you gon lose every single time,” Kordell says. Porsha is so lucky that Kordell Stewart filed for divorce. She won’t be missing out on much. Kordell isn’t a partner, he’s a controlling, selfish jerk.
Kordell says he wasn’t there for Porsha when she had her miscarriage cause he was dealing with losing his dad. So awful.
After trying on various wigs and outfits to look like Halle Berry from BAPS, Porsha figures out that the joke’s on her if she dresses as Halle like Kenya instructed her to. She arrives at the party in a gorgeous shimmering gold gown, dressed as Dorothy Dandridge instead.
Kenya is FUMING that Porsha is being “disrespectful” and not following her “specific instructions” to dress up as Halle from BAPS. Kenya says that she has “to cancel the BAPS portion” of the party. Kenya claims: “This is really offensive to me right now. This is a party that I paid for and you want to come and pick a fight.”
So let’s talk about this “party.” Kenya’s “party” looks awkward and boring. Not enough drinks are flowing. No one looks like they’re having any fun and I doubt Kenya even has any real friends.
