What do we have here? Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Miss Sophia’ (of ‘The Color Purple’) and Tyler Perry’s ‘Madea’ (‘Madea’s Family Reunion, ‘Madea Goes to Jail’, etc.) have linked up and we’re not sure why. We do know that the two are working together at OWN, so our guess is, this is a promo for their upcoming collab.
And in reality TV news, if you watched the Real Housewives of Atlanta finale, then you’re well aware that the climax of the episode was Kenya Moore kicking Porsha Stewart out of her party–literally.
While we don’t take sides around these parts, NeNe certainly has. Obviously, NeNe jumped to Porsha’s defense at the party, but weeks after the season has wrapped up, she’s still siding with her, while maintaining her friendship with Kenya. In a personal blog post, NeNe explains:
As far as Kenya throwing Porsha out of the party, one word — ridiculous! It felt like I was watching Season 1 of our show when Sheree wouldn’t let me in her party! Kenya, did you watch all of our previous seasons? Let’s talk about Kenya’s Hollywood Party. So Miss Kenya asked all of the ladies to come as iconic Hollywood actors. It was strange to me in the beginning to be told what character I needed to come as, and just like Porsha, I had a feeling that she was throwing shade when she chose the characters. I consider myself to be a pretty smart girl, so I said to myself, Grace Jones is fierce and fabulous! If there is any shade being thrown by giving me this character, I’m going to flip this and completely transform into Grace Jones! I researched her and became her that night, which is what a real actress would do. I’ve been in lots of situations over the years, and I must say, I’ve learned from each and every one. So during Kenya’s moment of flipping out, I wanted to drop some knowledge on her about her behavior that night, because I know she values my opinion, and the party ended peacefully.
Since NeNe is friends with both Porsha AND Kenya, was it right or wrong for her to take sides?
