The fireworks between Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss continued on Part 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion for Season 9. Kandi said that she didn’t believe that Porsha was going to anger management classes, and Porsha said that she didn’t feel supported for doing positive things, like raising money for charity on the Apprentice. This triggered emotions in Kandi who donated $5,000 to help Porsha on the Apprentice. Porsha revealed during the reunion that she felt bullied by the other women, because the others didn’t support her enough.
Kenya admitted that she was in the relationship with Matt longer than she should have been. She said that she just didn’t equate his angry outbursts as a sign that he’d be violent towards her.
If Matt was so threatening to Kenya, why did Cynthia have a sit-down with him to smooth things over between this guy and her good friend? Well, Cynthia said that they kept getting back together, so she thought maybe she could find out what Matt’s issue was with Kenya. Kenya said that she hadn’t thought about Matt in months. He called her for the New Year from a new number, and she told him to stay positive. Kenya has moved on. Apparently, she told Andy that she had a new boyfriend.
I know that this has been my issue, and I’m really embarrassed to the women out there who have been through domestic violence, to the young girls, I sent the wrong message. I think when you see those signs of aggression, you have to leave at the first sign of it, because if you stay in it too long, you could really end up dead.
They touched on Phaedra and her inconsistent information. She said that she was divorced but had appealed it again, but she also said that she paid him at $100,000 settlement. Phaedra said that she was not dating anyone but talked to Shemar Moore from time to time.
Kenya and Matt
They revisited (again) the argument between Kenya and Sheree regarding abuse. Sheree made it clear that she wouldn’t condone a man putting his hands on a woman. Earlier in the season, Sheree did make it sound as though Kenya had provoked Matt.
Sheree’s Emotional Reveal
Sheree tearfully revealed how Bob had abused her and she hadn’t talked about it for 10 years. He’d said a lot of hurtful things to her over the years, yet Sheree said that she was “like any other crazy woman, thinking that he’d changed.” She wanted them to be able to interact as a family.
It turns out that Sheree’s honesty about the spousal abuse she suffered from, had an impact on a lot of women. Sheree said that women have come up to her in public and just wanted to hug her. Kenya supported Sheree by telling her that she had to be tough and no one would judge her for that. She also went over to give her a hug.
