After a slow start, this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is very heated thanks to NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. As polarizing as they both can be, almost anyone can admit that they know how to bring it when it comes to stirring up controversy for this show.
Aside from feuding with each other over bug videos, handicap parking spaces, accusations of racism, and health diagnoses, they are both bringing individual controversies to the show as well. The women in the cast continue calling out Kim for her close relationship with husband/chauffeur Kroy Biermann and Kim just doesn’t understand any bit of what they’ve been attempting to convey. And then there’s NeNe who made some very offensive remarks about rape during a comedy show. Yikes- that goes beyond “bringing it for the show,” that’s for sure.
Porsha was reaching for story lines, focusing on being a “baby vegan” and bringing her sister on so she would have someone to talk to in front of the camera crew since…. none of the actual cast members wanted to be her confidante. Is Porsha just getting what she deserves or are the ladies being too hard on her?
It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morganshared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and put on her own lip gloss.
Thanks to Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes‘ drama, it’s easy to forget that there are actually other people on Real Housewives of Atlanta. There are six full-time cast members and a plethora of side players, but when NeNe and Kim are going at it, there’s just nothing else worth paying attention to.
A few episodes ago, Cynthia Bailey’s kind-of-sort-of relationship with Will Jones was a hot topic of conversation. Normally Twitter would have been blowing up after that awkward kiss in the car, but with everything going on with Kim that’s just child’s play and was very easy to look over.
I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.
Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.
There may be six women holding up peaches during the Real Housewives of Atlanta opening credits, but not all of them are bringing something to the table. Kim Zolciak isn’t even a full-time cast member and her daughter Brielle Biermann hasn’t even appeared on camera this season, yet the two of them have instigated the most significant drama – by far.
