I'm currently re-watching early RH on YT and it's so damn good it feels like the viewing equivalent of a good workout. "Here, sweetie, you're looking a little wan, have some Ryan's Hope to add pep to your step."
The Frank/Jill/Seneca and Delia/Pat/Faith stories feel like real stories driven by the characters, not exercises in geometry. Such great writing, such a strong cast. Amazing.
I'll give it to Porsha that she creates drama (and therefore story). She's also made me giggle with her one-liners now and then. But you talk about Kandi tarnishing her own image -- Porsha's image is in damn ruins at this point! The things she said about Kandi last season were unconscionable. Not to mention she's been caught on tape having to be physically dragged off THREE women. The stomp on Cynthia was a personal 'favorite.' And by 'favorite,' I mean she should have been fired then and there.
The only reason for her to stay would be if her side-job as a hooker gets exposed on the show.
Kandi tarnished her own image. Phaedra is a proven liar and Kandi has been vindicated. Kandi's is a passive/aggressive twat who goes thugzilla at the mere mention of Todd or her rancid mother, who's allowed to treat people horribly because she knows Kandi will allow it. Notice Cynthia's image remains in tact as well as Kim Fields'.
As for Kenya, her marriage isn't real so she's not going anywhere.
@Cat, Porsha stays!
