Poor Mynique Smith had no idea what she was getting into when she agreed to go to Savannah, Georgia with her friend NeNe Leakes and the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. For some reason, Mynique thought it would be a good idea to talk to Kandi Burruss about Chuck Smith, who is now married to Mynique but used to date Kandi back in the day.
Mynique started off by commenting that Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, seemed very eager to see Chuck at NeNe and Gregg’s wedding last June, but when she failed to let it go after that, things got awkward really fast. Pretty soon Mynique was grilling Kandi about how long she dated her now-hubby, and how serious their relationship was.
Unfortunately for Mynique, she wasn’t prepared for what Kandi had to say. NeNe’s pal was under the impression that Kandi and Chuck dated very briefly and were never serious, but Kandi set her straight and said the pair dated twice throughout the years and even became very well acquainted with one another’s families, hence the Mama Joyce connection.
But when Kandi got tired of defending her own previous relationship with Chuck, she revealed that she wasn’t the only Housewife who had a past with Mynique’s man: Apparently Phaedra Parks dated this dude too!
Phae-Phae said she and Chuck grew up together, dating once when they were kids and once in college. Even though Mynique kind of brought this all on herself, it was still a lot to take in. After some shouting (why was she mad at Porsha Stewart?) NeNe helped relieve the tension by joking that Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey also dated Chuck way back when.
And as the episode was airing last night, December 23, NeNe decided to have a bit more fun with the Chuck situation, sharing a photo of her smooching Mynique’s hubby on her website and writing, “Please believe I have dated Chuck Smith too! Don’t believe me? The proof is right here hunni!”
What do you think of NeNe’s joke: Is it LOL-worthy or straight-up silly? Tell us your thoughts below!
