ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Halle Berry as “BAPS” should be never be changed to Halle Berry as “Dorothy Dandridge”, viewers learn tonight on RHOA. In the Real Housewives of Atlanta outrageous finale, Kenya Moore throws Porsha Stewart out of her party. Moore told Porsha to come as Halle Berry in BAPS. But Porsha comes as Halle Berry as Dorothy Dandridge.
The bizarre episode is expected to draw debate because of Moore’s thoughts about cinema. Moore claims that the night is celebrate iconic African American female film roles. So when Kenya tells Porsha to come as BAPS, is Moore serious? The 1997 film was a box-office failure. Roger Ebert gave the film a rare zero stars and said it was “jaw-droppingly bad.”
Porsha tells viewers “everyone in the hair saloon are sisters and brothers. I want to show them all these BAPS outfits and they are going to give me the turn.” One friend asks “So you’re going to be Halle Berry?”
Stewart can’t figure out if BAPS is a joke or a serious instruction by Moore. “And she said ‘why don’t you be BAPS’?” She added “I can be classy, sweet and little ratchet.”
Eventually, Porsha gets thrown out for being BAPS-less. Cynthia Bailey is left speechless. She calls her co-star on the telephone and says “NeNe we are here at the party. Porsha came as Dorothy Dandridge and not as BAPS. And Kenya is asking her to leave.”
