Another episode of the utterly Fake Real Housewives of Atlanta aired last night. In the episode, Kandi Burruss’ mom, Joyce, threatens Kandi’s fiancé, Todd Tucker; Cynthia Bailey’s husband, Peter Thomas, gives Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, friendly relationship advice; and washed up model Kenya Moore wards off evil spirits.
I received an email from a friend who is in the legal field. He covers court cases for another media entity. It finally dawned on him yesterday that the whole Kenya Moore eviction debacle is just another stunt to boost TV ratings and to draw attention to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” tv series. This shouldn’t surprise anyone. I’ve been saying this all along about reality TV shows using the court system to boost ratings. Read the email after the break.
The tabloid headlines read: “KENYA MOORE EVICTED,” but in reality, Kenya Moore simply skipped out on paying the remaining rent due on her leased mansion when she moved back to California.
When Bravo announced Kenya’s addition to the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 5 in 2012, insiders wondered how Kenya could be an “Atlanta housewife” when A. she isn’t married, and B. she doesn’t live in Atlanta.
The latter problem was solved when Bravo found a mansion for Kenya to lease during filming. Many homeowners found themselves underwater on their mortgages when the housing bubble burst in 2007. Some homeowners hold off the banks by leasing their mansions to the entertainment industry for music videos and movies.

If you missed last night’s episode of RHOA, you didn’t miss much. Kandi Burruss and her fiance Todd Tucker discussed prenuptial agreements and using a surrogate to carry their baby so she doesn’t gain unnecessary weight. Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore filmed their workout videos. NeNe Leakes and her husband Greg discussed living on separate coasts, and Porsha emptied an entire bottle of visine on her face for her totally staged crying scenes. Like I said, you didn’t miss much.

If you missed last night’s episode of the Real Scripted Housewives of Atlanta: Battle of the Booty, you’re in luck. Bravo TV has the run down on the scripted mishaps and buffoonery, and Yardie has the full video after the break.
Walter Jackson, Kenya Moore’s fake boyfriend on the fake reality TV show Real Housewives of Atlanta, has finally revealed the truth behind his fake relationship with Kenya: it’s fake. Got that?
Jackson, who is currently dating a younger woman, spilled the tea on V-103′s Frank & Wanda Morning Show. He said he and Kenya dated for 3 months a few years ago. So he was surprised when she contacted him in April asking if he wanted to play her boyfriend on a reality show.
