Last week Porsha Williams kicked off her 35th birthday celebration – and it’s still going on! I guess that’s a milestone or something because the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star has been on a birthday binge.
Porsha’s celebration began at Dish Nation, continued to a club over the weekend, and last night featured a dinner with friends – undoubtedly filmed for Real Housewives Of Atlanta, because not only was Porsha joined by Bravolebrity friends Phaedra Parks and Quad Webb-Lunceford, but also by rumored new Housewife Maryam Aytac.
The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
Two things about Kenya Moore: 1) Nothing is ever her fault, and 2) A grudge is a grudge is eternal. Luckily she has met her match in Vivica A. Fox! But first up – what happened with Kenya after being eliminated from Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition? Sources claim she had a massive meltdown over the judges criticisms and being axed.
Kenya called into V-103Atlanta’s Ryan Cameron Morning Show and said “hell no!” she did not have a huge fit after being kicked off the Food Network show.
Anyone who has watched Kenya Moore on Real Housewives of Atlanta, or any other reality show she’s been on, knows that she likes to get her way and when she doesn’t…someone will have hell to pay. Kenya is a contestant on the Food Network series Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition and I can’t imagine that is going too well. I don’t think she enjoys being in any environment that involves criticism, whether it’s constructive or not.
Apparently, Kenya was eliminated earlier than she expected, and she freaked out and threw a tantrum for hours. Kenya reportedly spewed insults and held up production for hours. (WARNING: SHOW SPOILERS BELOW)
NeNe Leakes and Vivica A. Fox were the guests on Watch What Happens Live tonight. It’s been a while since NeNe was on the show, so Andy started off with a game of catch up.
Has she been in touch with Cynthia Bailey since her separation? “Yes, I talked to her this morning. She’s doing good.” She also says she’s good with Peter and talks to him.
On rumors in the tabloids that she and Porsha Williams are feuding: “I’m not feuding with Porsha.” Andy asks “is she feuding with you?” NeNe says “She might be – her and her little job over there at Dish Nation. They always talk about me, but they should continue, I help their ratings.”
To be honest, Claudia Jordan really left no impression on me during her one-season stint on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She was just kind of there. Sure, she argued with NeNe Leakes on vacation, but I don’t feel like that was really about something. She was just jumping on the “I hate NeNe” bandwagon.
Then I was one of the few people who caught some episodes of her on The Next Fifteen– which I only watched to see my beloved TIffany Pollard aka New York back on TV. But anyway, Claudia was super arrogant and all of the cast ended up despising her. I have no idea who she thinks she is or what “industry experience” she was bragging about all the time, but she sure thinks a lot of herself. And she just went off on a super intense Instagram rent.
Sure, every show in the Real Housewives franchise is unique is, but there are certain elements that carry through in every series. Although each Housewife is unique, there is pretty much always one person in each show who is a real stickler for etiquette- and wants every single person to be aware of it.
These are the ladies who live by a set of social rules and love to remind the other cast members about it whenever they possibly can. You know who I’m talking about and there’s one of these girls in each series. Sometimes these ladies are just genuinely trying to share some guidance based on their past experiences. And other times these are the kind of women who just like to hear themselves talk about etiquette over and over again.
