After months of stewing since last season’s reunion, it seems Phaedra has new reasons to inquire about her husband’s conversations with the former beauty queen.
In tonight's Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra confronts her husband Apollo about the alleged “flirty texts” he received from her costar Kenya.
After Kandi reads the text messages on Kenya's phone, she goes straight to Phaedra about what she learned. Apollo and Phaedra have a heart-to-heart discussion while they're in a restaurant.
Apollo is clearly on the defense when his wife questions him about texting Kenya. He tells her that he texted Kenya, but he didn't "cross the line" and never meant to "offend" her.
When she asks Apollo what happened: “She wanted to fuck, okay. She wanted to have sex in LA,” he replies.
“I might have to kill him with this damn steak knife,” Phaedra responds.
Back at the table, she threatens her hubby for his behavior. “You are about two seconds from me cuttin’ out your tongue,” she warns her hubby.
“I just want to talk to Apollo, so that I can put this all to rest because I’m sick of hearing about it,” she says during her confessional. “Don’t text my friends,” Phaedra tells her husband. “Baby, I’m a grown man. You’re not my mama,” he responds. “You’ve got to lighten up.”
In her confessional, Phaedra rants about his texting with Kenya. “What he sees as harmless, I see as inappropriate,” she says.
Back at the dinner table, she doesn’t think Apollo is taking her seriously. “Well, it better not happen no more,” she says. “Don’t do that again.” Apollo tries to defend himself and says the texts weren’t a big deal.
“Enough with the threats!” he vents – with the couple’s fight looking far from over.
In the past, Kandi’s said that she has no plans on linking back up with her old group members. But it seems that she may have changed her mind.
JuicyMagOnline.com reports that the “Who Can I Run To” sirens may be planning to link up on Kandi’s show RHOA. That’s right! Kandi Burruss, Tiny, Latocha Scott and her sister Tamika Scott may soon be gathering for some long-awaited face time.
Since parting ways most of the original members have gone on to enjoy continued success in reality TV. Tiny’s had several shows, including Tiny Tonight and T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
Kandi’s run on The Real Housewives spawned a short-lived spin-off The Kandi Factory. LaTocha was featured on the last season of R&B Divas. Former members that came in after Kandi’s exit have even been featured on The Sisterhood (TLC) and Pregnant & Dating (WE tv).
It’s not clear whether their reunion will be something musical, a friendly chit chat to catch up and resolve their differences, or something in between.
VIBE Vixen: I hear you’re keeping your name. What’s your thought process behind that?
Porsha Stewart: I was born Porsha Williams, but I was given to a husband that didn’t work out, but at the end it still was a part of my life. I’ll give up that name when I meet my next husband, but until then it’s really not necessary. The name [Stewart] meant something to me, there’s sentimental value with my name it’s not like ‘oh I hate him so take his name back’ it’s my name too. It’s the name that everybody knows. At the end of the day, this is business. I’m building businesses and people know me as Porsha Stewart and when you build a brand you have to work with what you got.
Do you think that you’ll ever get married again?
Oh yes, definitely. I’m a hopeless romantic. I still have big dreams. I still have big hopes and I believe in that fairytale. I believe it can happen because I’m blessed and I’m highly favored so all I need to do at this moment in time is get myself in a position where I feel complete, and then I’ll meet someone who can compliment me. It may not be what everyone else thinks it needs to be, but I’ll find him.
What kind of guy are you looking for? Who are you most interested in?
I would love someone who is God-fearing. If he is God-fearing then it means he is disciplined and he’s not living his life by his own say-so. He’s submissive to a higher power.
Someone who has a specific religion we could fall back on. If you don’t have any foundation, then it’s just the two of you deciding what you’re going do together. I made it in my marriage as long as I did because even when I was upset I would ask ‘what is love?’ and I would always go back and read that love was kind and endured. I want him to be successful, I want a man with a plan because I’m a woman with a plan and I want us to do it together. I want us to be a power couple.
Tell us about the music project you have coming up.
I’m working on a song right now called “Perfectly Worthless” with a producer named Pierre. I’ll be releasing that single within a couple of months. The song is all about passion and pain. This song is going to be a woman’s anthem for her to gather herself up and move on & realize what she’s worth. I went to the studio at a very emotional point and I’m proud of that. I also have a teeth whitening line out soon.
We have a lot of readers who are going through break-ups. What’s your advice to them?
My advice would be to remember what they originally wanted to get out of the relationship. A lot of times when you get in a relationship you put on blinders and you ignore the red flags and you just move right along with it because he’s cute. If you break up with somebody, and you point your finger then that’s bad. I had to accept some of the blame and accept that I’ve swept some things under the rug.
The founders of Destiny Center Church live a lavish lifestyle that some might not equate with a life of service to God, but Ben and Jewel don’t shy away.
“We’re blessed to be in America. There is freedom of religion. If one wants to live under a bridge and walk around in sandals and not have a phone or an iPad, they can do that,” Ben told Sister 2 Sister. “If someone says they believe their entire family should be millionaires, they should be able to do that and not be criticized.”
Thicker Than Water fans saw them contemplate purchasing a private plane, and while that may seem extravagant to some, Jewel said that’s in line with what she’s taken from the Bible. “The Scripture talks about the streets being paved with gold. Jesus was about the bling. There are Scriptures that support that,” she said.
“I think we have to define prosperity. It’s peace, joy & great relationships. Each person has to define what’s prosperity to them. One person may be happy living in a trailer park. For me, I’m glad to know that there are not any limits to what I have.
Whatever that dream is, each person can have that dream,” she said. “God gives us the desires of our heart.” Jewel said the belief that Christians must live in poverty and reject material wealth is something that prevents some from committing to Christ.
“I grew up in Detroit, fast men and fast cars. I dated drug dealers. Everybody I knew who was saved at the time was struggling and broke. Their lives did not appeal to me,” she said. “Many people think, ‘If I gotta be broke & come to God, I’m gonna wait ‘til I get old.’ The truth of the matter is, there are a lot of people out there who probably feel the same way.”
Though critics may not understand their lavish lifestyle, Ben said in order to bless the people he wants to help, he needs God’s financial favor first.
“My reason for wanting to be successful has nothing to do with things that I want to own,” he said. “I want to be successful to be a blessing to my family. I’ve given away 18 vehicles to people in the community. I’ve got a dream on my vision board to be able to give away 100 homes. I can’t do that if I’m hungry.”
