The three-part “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion special is coming soon! And we have the explosive first look at what goes down. In a clip for next week’s episode, Apollo Nida reveals he STILL has not seen his sons since he turned himself into prison. And we also have the first sneak peek at Kandi Burruss’ spin-off “Kandi’s Ski Trip.” Get it all inside….
It’s that time of year again! The “RHOA” ladies got fab in all white to take center stage with Andy Cohen as they trekked down memory lane to discuss all of the drama and shade that ensued during the show’s seventh hit season.
The reunion special looks to be a juicy one, with the ultimate shade-filled one-liners, quick clap backs and one super dramatic scene showing NeNe Leakes getting so emotional she exits the stage in tears! We noticed new cast mate Demetria McKinney was not present for the taping, but we may know why. More on that later.
Was there a memo sent out that the cast needed to wear white? Sheesh.
In the reunion clip, we see Kandi Burruss and Nene go at it with some heated words, Phaedra Parks gets a little emotional when talking about raising her sons as a single mother as her husband Apollo Nida sits behind bars. We see newcomer Claudia Jordan throwing shade at NeNe over her wiggery, Kenya Moore (in a similar dress to Beyonce’s Michael Costello Grammy dress) and Phaedra duke it out over Phaedra calling Kenya a whore. Kenya also comes for Porsha Williams where Porsha gets upset when Kenya starts bringing Porsha’s family in the mix. And the highlight of the reel: NeNe exits stage left in TEARS as she reflects on not being raised by her mother!
But, in a strange turn of events, it appears the ladies are able to set all of their differences aside by the end of the taping because we see them all embrace in one big hug. Shocker! Well good for them!
Here’s what we can expect from Part 2 of the reunion:
1.We will see Kandi & Phaedra discuss the issues in their friendship.
2. Cynthia Bailey responds to the backlash she has received for “starting ish.”
3. The “RHOA” husbands join the cast to give their point of views.
And here’s what to look forward to in Part 3:
1. NeNe & Cynthia address their issues and discuss if they’ll ever reconcile.
2. NeNe & Claudia try to hash out their differences.
3. Therapist Dr. Jeff joins the cast to discuss their group therapy session.
4. NeNe BREAKS DOWN after opening up about her history.

Speaking of the “RHOA” husbands….
Apollo Nida still claims he has not seen his two sons whom he shares with his estranged wife Phaedra Parks, 4-year-old Ayden and 2-year-old Dylan. He claims Phaedra simply REFUSES to take them down to see him!
In a promo clip for the next episode, we see Apollo call Cynthia’s husband Peter Thomas on a collect call from jail. When Peter asks Apollo how he’s holding up, he reveals he has not seen his children since he turned himself into prison last September. Apollo said, “My brother has been up here four times to see me and she won’t let him get the kids to bring them. I need to see my children.”
In Phaedra’s defense, she said she’s not sure when they’re going to Kentucky to see Apollo, so she has at least left the possibility of visitation open. She also said there a few reason she has not taken the kids yet. One reason is that Kentucky is hours away from Atlanta and the other reason is that there are rules for children visiting a federal prison. She revealed she had to call the warden of the prison to find out the age a baby/toddler will be admitted inside the facility. Peep the clip above.
In other “RHOA” news…..
TheYBF.com tipped you off about a Kandi Burruss-Todd Tucker spinoff show. And now it’s official!
BRAVO has announced Kandi’s new three-part special as “Kandi’ Ski Trip,” where the couple will head to the mountains in Colorado on a family vacation to try and work on blending their two families into one and work on their own marital issues.
In the upcoming show, Kandi and Todd will bring together their families which include, their daughters Riley Burruss & Kaela Tucker, Kandi’s mom Mama Joyce (Lordt!), Kandi’s aunts Bertha and Nora (Lordt! times two) and a few of Todd’s family members.
Here’s a little of what we can expect from the show: We will meet Todd’s new assistant (who happens to be a white man). We’ll watch Kandi’s mom pop off about Kandi’s workers/friends NOT doing what they’re paid to do, we we’ll see Kandi’s bestie Carmen and Mama Joyce get into a heated discussion over Mama Joyce believing she slept with Todd and much more. Check it above.
“Kandi’s Ski Trip” will premiere Sunday, May 17th at 8PM ET.
1. Good news for one “RHOA” star! Demetria McKinney has signed a new record deal with eOne Music. Looks like the show came through for her. Hmm…could this possibly be the reason she opted out of the reunion special? Possibly. Maybe she was busy in the studio that day. Either way, congrats to her!
