Tonight is the second episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s 7th season. Apollo Nida is doing everything he can to earn that paycheck before he leaves for prison, so he is once again confronting Kenya Moore about what went on between the two of them! The premiere already broke ratings records, so let’s hope all the drama lives up to its hype.
Tonight we’re are supposed to finally get some resolve on the situation, in what Kenya promises will be a season of redemption as lies told about her are exposed as thus. Apollo crashes a party Cynthia Bailey throws to celebrate her fibroid-free sexiness. A party that also left several RHOA ladies off the guest list!
It’s a new season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and lots of things are different – like NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks being friends (what?!) but one thing has stayed the same: NeNe’s ego is still larger than a Louboutin triple platform – or Phaedra’s beehive.
“It’s always sad to see a family end no matter who’s right or wrong. I’m glad I can say I was a rock for Phaedra during this time and never judged her,” NeNe says. I love how NeNe can’t just say a nice thing, she always has to drop a line about her own amazingness. She simply must try to snatch alllll the credit!
Kristen is partnering with designer James Maeco to produce a new line of t-shirts called James.Mae. The first same of which she debuted during her appearance on WWHL last week. It reads: “You’ve got me hanging on to a word, for a moment, by a thread.”
So, where was Brandi? In Australia! And why would Brandi be in Australia the week her reality show premieres, thus skipping the premiere party? Is it because she does not get along with any of her castmates?
Kyle Richards posted a series of photos on twitter and instagram, that show even ‘extra’ Camille Grammer was present. Kyle also posted a ‘cast photo’ of the ladies, in which she tagged the entire cast – except Brandi! “The #RHOBH girls #season5.” Nor did anyone tweet a ‘missing Brandi at the season 5 premiere party’ type comment!
Real Housewives Of New Jersey is nothing without a good villain – and this season, unlikely candidate Jim Marchese stepped into that role. Jim has been polarizing since the first day he appeared on the show, and he’s never shied away from being outrageous. Even today, after the season wrapped, Jim doesn’t apologize!
The Jim readily admits that he can be “a douchebag” but he’s OK with that title if it comes with defending his wife Amber Marchese, his career, or his reputation. “I am unfiltered. Clearly.” Which Jim says is why so many of the Housewives found him “unlikeable” – something that also goes for viewers who have lobbed a full-scale attack against Jim on social media and other platforms. One Jim encourages, it seems, by always retaliating.
As a model Cynthia knows the importance of a good accessory, which is why she’s always been more than willing to be NeNe’s, until Kenya took Cynthia under her antebellum caftan and twirled her off into the sunset. And apparently that was all Porsha Williams‘ fault. I’m noticing a pattern here – everything in Cynthia’s life is someone else’s fault. She really has been hanging out with Krayonce too long!
Listed as “currently separated” Mario is seeking an “active” woman who “loves sports and working out.” And he makes it very clear he wants someone who is the opposite of his wine-ing Real Housewives Of New York star ex-wife. Mario says he wants someone who will,”Enjoy the simple things in life and not be pretentious and in need of impressing other people.”
Anyway, Kenya is all about redemption this season and that means moving forward with all the people who have done her wrong – Phaedra included! After last season’s traumatic reunion, Kenya said it really took a lot for her return to the show. And by a lot, I imagine one phone call from Bravo.
“I had to really weigh the options; is this worth it? I went through a terrible time after the reunion, and I had to just reevaluate the situation,” Kenya says. “I asked myself a lot of questions. I had a lot of questions and conversations with the production company, with Bravo, and we got to a really good place; and that’s why I’m back.”
