Sanya Richards-Ross has her modeling for her company’s Black Friday sale, and Kandi Burruss isn’t happy about it
Sanya Richards-Ross is asking her castmates Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore to model for her company’s advertising campaign on an upcoming episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi previews this week’s episode and questions the purpose of the shoot.
RHOA is back and better than ever for Season 14. Although the Bravo hit has been on the air for nearly a decade, it’s still turning heads. The next part of the ensemble title, which has already been immersed in drama, proves to be a must. The upcoming episode preview sheds light on the tension surrounding Sanya’s photo shoot for her company.
Sanya Richards-Ross, an Olympic champion, decided to redefine motherhood holistically. As she approached parenthood, Sanya discovered a hole and a double opportunity: to create a platform that celebrates the wholeness of motherhood and women, and to provide a support structure as she transitioned from athletics to motherhood. As a result, she founded MommiNation.com, a digital portal. To market her brand, she decides to enlist the help of her new ‘RHOA’ cast members.
Kenya Moore arrives at the location in the preview where she is greeted by Sanya and Kandi who are already there. Upon their arrival, Sanya informs the two of their fall collection shoot. She claims to have brought three hoodies for Kenya and Kandi to model. Kenya, who had no idea she was being asked to model in the shoot, is stunned. She tells Sanya that she didn’t know she had to take part in the shoot as Sanya forgot to mention it. Sanya, on the other hand, believes she gave them all the information they needed regarding the shoot. When Sanya wonders if she has jeans or sneakers for the photoshoot, Kenya urges her to consult with her agency! Despite Sanya’s amusement, Kenya can be seen in a confessional asking for a “receipt” confirming her role in the project. Kandi adds in her confessional that “Kenya doesn’t do anything without a check”.
When Sanya confesses that the photo shoot is for her brand, MommiNation, Kenya inquires if it’s for the website or the clothing ad. Sanya then informs them that the shoot is for their new line of hoodies specifically geared for the Black Friday sale. Kandi was unhappy to learn that she was now (unintentionally) part of an advertisement for the Black Friday sale. Kenya and Kandi can’t believe they’ve been called to a Black Friday sale shoot, which Kandi believes would appear “cheap” given the premise of the event. When Sanya finally asks the ladies to pose for her, Kenya says she might consider forgoing her fee for the day.
Meanwhile, Drew Sidora and Marlo Hampton meet for dinner to discuss their relationship issues and hope to rebuild their friendship. During their conversation, Marlo asks Drew if she was invited to Sanya’s photo shoot for her brand. Drew claims that not only was she invited to film, but she was “not invited,” implying that Sanya issued her “an official disclaimer.”
