The Real Housewives of Atlanta aired part 2 of the explosive season 6 reunion show last night (April 27, 2014).
The ladies discuss the Porsha vs. Kenya aftermath. Momma Joyce joins the women to reflect on the drama from this season and where she stands with her opinion of Kandi and Todd’s relationship. Cynthia and NeNe also hash out their issues from this season, which leads to an unexpected outcome.
Read the 5 ‘life lessons’ revealed during RHOA S6 Reunion (Part 2) + watch full video below…
Life Lesson # 1 – Physical violence is NEVER the answer (unless you ask for it)…
Despite what you guys thing, I don’t condone physical violence and never have…. but (and that’s a big ol’ diaper booty BUTT!), when things like props and antagonism is used to push certain buttons (for “fun”), I don’t believe that the same rules apply.
Kenya Moore knew exactly what she was doing with the scepter and the “blow horn”… hell… Bravo cut the check for her to act a fool and she merely did what she was paid to do. She provoked Porsha. Period. That’s the way I feel and I’m sticking with it.
The ladies all addressed the fight and Kenya tried to play the victim, but no one bought it… and it didn’t make anything better when Nene threatened to call Porsha and Kenya (who minutes prior said she doesn’t condone violence) retaliated by threatening to call Marlo (a known violent offender)… *sigh*

But I digress….
LIFE LESSON #2 – It’s never ‘all about the sex’…
Kandi and Phaedra addressed their infamous Chuck Smith ‘love triangle’ and both admit that it was all blown out of proportion.
If you recall, the two friends compared notes on Smith’s ‘package’ after he downplayed his relationship with each of them, stating they were merely part of his ‘team’.
The two admit that it was never all about the sex with Smith and they also admit that while speaking about the size of his peen was out of line, it was only in response to his statements about their relationships.
The moral of their ‘love triangle’? It’s notall about the sex, it’s more like all about embarrassing your ex on reality television.
LIFE LESSON #3 – Squashing beef is better than holding on to rotten meat…
Nene addressed her ‘head doctor’ comment that was made during that whole Chuck Smith debacle and admits that she contacted Phaedra and apologized about it. So it’s official… the two Athens natives have squashed the beef.
The trip to their hometown of Athens earlier this season may have helped the two bond, and it may have helped matters that they both have disdain for Kenya Moore, who also chose to interject during the segment.
Moore brings up the fact that ‘head doctor’ was mentioned in some legal documents about Phaedra, while Parks snaps back by targeting Moore’s rotten eggs…
Phaedra: “I might be a head doctor but you can’t be a ‘housewife’ because you can’t get a husband… ”
Kenya – “If I wanted a husband, I wouldn’t have to look far because somebody’s husband strays…
Phaedra: “Well he doesn’t stray with YOU… barren woman.’
OUCH!! All of this ladies are pros at throwing low bows…
LIFE LESSON #4 – They say ‘Mama knows best’… but Mama Joyce knows better.
I have to admit that Mama Joyce was the best part of the show and she certainly deserves her own peach!
[FLASHBACK: Mama Joyce Claims She’s a Victim of Bad Editing… ]
Mama Joyce was so turned up during this show that we couldn’t figure out if she’d had a few cocktails or popped a molly prior to hitting the couch! Clearly she still feels some kinda way about Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker and she still has no problems speaking her mind about it.
She claims she lost 40lbs from ‘stress’ and jokingly says that she’s waiting to get her own peach.
[Sidebar: I personally believe she deserves one! Mama Joyce proved during the reunion that she can ‘bring it’ and I’m all for it! But I digress…]
Mama Joyce denied feeling threatened by Todd over money and downplayed Kandi’s assertion that she once had credit cards in Kandi’s name.
She says that SHE raised Kandi to be the millionaire she is and is upset that all it took was a ‘hundredaire’ to steal Kandi’s heart.
Mama Joyce admits that Todd’s mom called her a ‘bitch’ (which I revealed in a post HERE) but threw a bit of well placed shade by stating ‘she ain’t got noting and I have too much’ (OUCH!). Mama Joyce says she financially sound and everything she has is paid for (so what if it’s with Kandi’s money).
Kandi admit she financially supports her mom because her mom’held it down’ for her and since she has it, she’s going to do the same. Despite all of that, Kandi brings up Mama Joyce’s gambling and her fixation with the home shopping network, but Mama Joyce says… “I spend my money on what I want to!”
As for Kandi’s musical stage play ‘A Mother’s Love,’ Mama Joyce says she enjoyed it but doesn’t feel like it was a true depiction of the facts. On the other hand, Kandi says the play was merely ‘inspired’ by her life.
LIFE LESSON # 5 – No new friends… and no new friendship contracts!
The two have been tight since season three, when Cynthia first arrived on the show but this season it seems that Bailey has had enough of Nene’s bossy ways.
During Part 2 of the reunion, Cynthia acknowledges how loyal she’s been to NeNe throughout the years and Bravo airs a clip from Kenya’s fake charity auction, the incident that started it all.
Cynthia sheds a few tears and explains, “I see so many of her friends come and go and I feel like at the end of the day, there’s a sisterhood there. There’s a love there. But I never felt a respect is there.”
“I don’t know where that’s coming from,” NeNe said.
NeNe eventually refused to talk about her friendship with Cynthia on camera, which prompts Kandi to say that NeNe comes across as a “selfish friend.”
“I’m not sure if she’s even aware she can be shady,” Cynthia said. “Not friendly, not inviting. I read her blog going in on me. If you say anything slightly demeaning, she feels attacked.”
Cynthia says if the tables were turned and she called NeNe’s husband a “bitch,” it would have been a wrap but NeNe denies her assessment and even provides proof on her instagram that Cynthia was actually supposed to call Gregg a ‘bitch’ during their dinner (I guess to even things out) but it was Cynthia who backed out of the plan…
