Hot in the middle of season seven of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the women are up and bound for an all-expenses-paid trip to Puerto Rico, provided for by Demetria McKinney’s boyfriend, Roger Bobb.
But what is supposed to be a relaxing trip to watch Demetria perform in a nightclub, quickly turns into a drama-filled explosion topped with cat fights, a sex party and a rift that leaves the group completely divided into two teams.
Three Secrets From Puerto Rico:
Demetria McKinney Vs. Phaedra Parks
Prior to the Puerto Rico trip, Phaedra Parks disses Demetria about her music career, saying that she thinks Demetria should focus on gospel instead of pop music and that Demetria is too old to be a pop star. Phaedra also makes fun of that fact that Demetria is not married to Roger, who she has been dating for eight years.
When the women arrive in Puerto Rico, Demetria decides to confront Phaedra at a group dinner and state that she isn’t happy about the “shade” Phaedra cast her way. Phaedra is quick to defend herself, and they get into a heated argument.
“The only thing we have in common right now is the number eight,” Demetria tells Phaedra, whose husband Apollo Nida is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence. “Yours is going and mine’s been here for eight.”
“I was totally shocked because I had no idea there was an issue,” new girl Claudia Jordan tells OKMagazine.com about the confrontation. “I was disgusted and surprised. I could not believe what I was hearing actually.”
Claudia Jordan Vs. NeNe Leakes: The Division Lines Have Been Drawn
The drama spins out of control at the same dinner when Claudia calls NeNe Leakes out for making rude comments about Phaedra and Demetria’s bickering.
Claudia mocks NeNe for her show, The New Normal, getting canceled and for NeNe working as a stripper when she was younger.
NeNe, in return, quips about Claudia filing for bankruptcy years ago and also claims that Claudia slept her way through Hollywood.
“Money couldn’t buy you a new pussy, could it?” NeNe shouts at Claudia. “You’ve been f***ed by everyone in Hollywood. They’re going to wear that out, b***h… You’re a wh***.”
Claudia’s thoughts on NeNe’s dirty name-calling?
“It was ridiculous for NeNe Leakes, former stripper, to call me a wh***,” Claudia told OKMagazine.com. “I’m not saying strippers are wh***s, but when you have all these things in your past that you want people to forgive you for, I don’t think you should be out there judging.”
The war lines have clearly been drawn: now it’s Team NeNe versus Team Claudia.
Sex Party on the Beach
Despite all the drama going on between the girls, Kandi Burruss hosts a raunchy sex party on the beach and all the women take a break from the drama to come together and play with sex toys from Kandi’s line.
“I knew NeNe was angry with me and I thought I would feel tense, but I made my way to stand up to NeNe,” Claudia told OK! of the party. “I thought, ‘We’re going to force ourselves to interact because I felt like that’s going to help us get past this.’”
“I’ve got to give it to Kandi: Kandi’s sex toy parties always break up the tension and I had an amazing time at that party,” Claudia added. “Here were women that don’t necessarily like each other that actually had to deal with each other, so I thought that was a great idea.”
Unfortunately, this temporary armistice in the RHOA war is never guaranteed to last.
