“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” newbie Drew Sidora described how awkward it was to watch the strippergate episode of “RHOA” with her husband Ralph Pittman Jr while appearing on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” The actress was a virtual guest on Feb. 21 alongside “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Lisa Barlow.
Sidora began by saying that although she roughly knew what to expect regarding the Feb. 21 depiction on “RHOA” of Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party in South Carolina, it didn’t stop her from feeling uneasy as each scene began to unfold.
“I know what happened, and I know what I saw happen, but I didn’t know what you all were going to see,” Sidora said. “I was sitting here, heart beating fast, and after each commercial break, I was like, ‘OK, I live to see another day.'”
When Cohen asked the “Step Up” star about Pittman’s reaction to her honest remarks concerning the party. The 35-year-old explained that the difference between her husband hearing the news about what happened and seeing it play out on television could have led to an argument.
“I was honest about it. … Come on, let’s keep it real. Like, if he would have seen BOLO [the male stripper] flip me on the coffee table and me twerking, I think he probably would have been in Tampa.”
Sidora added that it didn’t stop him from feeling “some type of way” as he continued to watch the “RHOA” episode. She also referenced Pittman’s solo trip to Tampa while defending her actions during the bachelorette party.
“At first, he kind of felt some type of way once we talk through it, and I had to remind him that I didn’t know what he did in Tampa that’s when it got real. You know, like he has to be able to dish and take what he dishes. So that was a real moment, but sitting there watching it with him, I was definitely nervous because I was like he’s looking, he was waiting for me to show my ass.”
Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party made headlines last October after it was alleged that two “RHOA” cast members participated in a threesome with stripper BOLO, the entertainer. Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam were later accused of being the women involved in the alleged tryst. Sam and BOLO later denied the allegations.
Later in the show, Sidora also expressed how annoyed she was with her “RHOA” co-star Kenya Moore for trying to play detective as she attempted to determine who allegedly slept with BOLO.
She said, “I was annoyed. I was like, ‘Listen, you are giving auntie vibes.’ You know we had the aunties and the nieces. We all had a good time. Did we not see Kenya with her legs spread open? Why are we even discussing and judging?”
