Biggest Hypocrite: Following her rumble with Porsha, THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA’s Kenya had the nerve to make a long-winded speech about the dangers of “escalating” a situation. Because, you know, her shoving a bullhorn in Porsha’s face had nothing to do with the ramping up of the situation.
Oddest Stunt: Here comes the judge… as in JUDGE JUDY, who will get a primetime special on Tuesday, May 20. Anyone who thinks the success of this special won’t lead to the relatively cheap show becoming a summer series should report immediately to lock-up for crimes against logic.
