The women of Real Housewives certainly aren't strangers at throwing shade, including when they come up with their seasonal taglines. On Wednesday, the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 taglines were finally revealed. For those unaware, the Nov. 5 premiere did not include them and Bravo didn't provide a reason why, but only teased that fans would soon be privy to the catchphrases. Now that they are out in the open, us RHOA fans need to talk about Kandi Burruss' tagline, which is hands-down her best one yet thanks to its shadiness.
Are you ready? Here it is: "Don’t mess with the boss, 'cuz you might get fired!"
Oh. Snap. That's right, it appears Kandi is totally calling out Phaedra Parks' absence from the tenth season. In May, TMZ reported that Bravo wasn't asking Phaedra back for another round of drama. That same month E! News also reported that the attorney/mortician wouldn't be returning in any capacity. At the time of E!'s report, Bravo had no comment for Bustle on the matter.
There was a lot of drama throughout Season 9, but the biggest and most problematic storyline involved Porsha Williams, Phaedra, and Kandi. During the season, Porsha alleged that Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, attempted to drug her as a way to have sex with her.
As fans most likely recall, during the reunion, Porsha revealed that Phaedra was the one who told her the accusations about Kandi wanting to drug and rape her. Porsha also alleged that Phaedra said Kandi herself told Phaedra she was going to drug and rape Porsha. In turn, Phaedra claimed she had heard the allegations from somebody else, but still repeated it as if she knew it was true. Throughout the entire season and at the reunion, Kandi repeatedly denied both of the allegations.
The reveal at the reunion was such a big deal that Housewives from other series couldn't help but react to it. As Real Housewives of New York City's Bethenny Frankel tweeted in May, "Wow @PhaedraParks signed her death certificate at that #rhoatl renuion. Damaging someone's brand is not a joke @Kandi."
It's unclear whether or not it was Bravo or Phaedra's choice to depart RHOA, but in May, the former Housewife told People, "What’s meant to happen will happen. They say you’re set up to step up for the next thing, right? I know that I’m fortunate. I know that good things happen to me because I have my feet on frugal ground. I can’t regret anything, but I know it was destined to happen." She also added about her Housewives status, "I would love to continue. Obviously the show documents your journey, and every journey has its ups and downs."
All of the controversy caused by Phaedra definitely impacted the show in major ways — including Kandi's new tagline. As for the other Season 10 cast members, their taglines aren't half-bad, either, so let's discuss.
NeNe: "10 years in the game, and I’m still the tastiest peach in Atlanta!"
NeNe Leakes really wants you to know she is back and better than ever.
Porsha: "Friends come and go, but family is forever."
Cynthia: "Age is just a number, but these cheekbones are timeless!"
There's no doubt Miss Cynthia Bailey looks flawless at 50.
Kenya: "While some were saying 'I can’t,' I was saying 'I do!'"
Shereé: "Call me a bad server, because I always spill the tea!"
Fans can always rely on Shereé Whitfield to speak the truth — and cause drama along the way. It's good to know nothing is changing.
It was disappointing an introduction wasn't part of the Season 10 premiere, but these RHOA taglines were certainly worth the wait.
