To no one’s surprise, NeNe Leakes hopes that The Real Housewives of Atlantacast will get a MAJOR overhaul next season. NeNe is praying that none of the unmarried Housewives get invited back. She also talks about her current co-stars trying to knock her off of her throne.
She chatted with Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts on Live! With Kelly and Michael this morning. She shared on last night’s reunion episode, “They are mad, honey. They’re out there attacking Miss NeNe Leakes.” When Robin asks why she thinks that is, “I’m a threat. I am a threat and they are mad.” Michael asks if they’re jealous because she’s the only original cast member left. “Well, of course. Everybody wants to knock the queen off her throne, but she’s not going anywhere.”
I don’t know about you but I consider this season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion to be basically an extension of last season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, albeit without anyone’s clip-in hair pieces being used to mop the stage floor.
Porsha Williams explains there “wasn’t a lot of screaming and yelling” during the reunion because the women just “wanted to be heard” and “clear up whatever the misunderstandings were” – although there also wasn’t a lot of progress made!
“People were definitely upset last year and lashed out with anger. This year I feel like people were very emotional. It was really similar to the therapy session,” Porsha describes. Although Porsha isn’t really in the business of clearing up any of her shade – in fact she stands by accusing Peter Thomas of cheating (why would she? No shade), and her refusal to apologize to Kenya Moore over last season’s fight.
Kim Richards quietly entered rehab over the weekend, just days after her arrest for public intoxication and her disastrous interview with Dr. Phil. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star checked herself into a private, live-in facility in Malibu where she can still be close to family and friends, but get the treatment she needs.
Sources say Kim made the decision to go to rehab after discussing it with her family, but she’s still in denial about the severity of her addiction. “If the arrest hadn’t happened she wouldn’t be going to rehab; it would be business as usual. She’s in denial that she has a problem,” a source informs People.
Before reading, please note we are deeply sensitive to Bruce’s desire to live his life as a woman, but for the sake of this article we’re using male pronouns.
In light of the interview airing, Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner has spoken-out about her marriage to Bruce and how they privately dealt with his desire to transition to a woman. Linda announces she never would have “dared” violated Bruce’s truth or his dignity by revealing his gender dysphoria before he did so himself.
NeNe Leakes has 99 problems… and they’re all her fault! Her problems include: wigs, friendships, successes, rejection of Claudia Jordan, saying what she said because she said it… NeNe’s refrain throughout the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, was “You’re right, I’m wrong.” Probably. No, it’s not NeNe who has a million problems – it’s RHOA… This was supposed to be the SEASON 7 reunion, but almost everything discussed was a SEASON 6 issue. Dejaview!
The only things different are Apollo is incarcerated and Claudia is lapping up everyone’s storyline dregs like she’s been through the dessert on a stallion booty with no name and it’s been good to get into the shade. In Atlanta no one can remember your name unless you try extra hard with the reads and the complaints!
Let’s talk outfits: Porsha Williams‘ was the worst – it looked like a cheap shower curtain. And that train! That girl and her issues with trains. #UndergroundRailroad.
Across town, Mica Hughes is sitting on the floor of her closet surrounded by $49.99 wigs and complaining to Daisy on the phone that her hair is beat. If that short-short wig Mica wore last episode is in this pile of bargain weaves, she needs to feed it to her chinchilla, pronto. Mica & Daisy discuss Arzo Anwar’supcoming runway presentation (for one of the designers she carries), and Daisy’s excited to attend a positive event now that her chemo is done (YAY!). Next step: radiation. Daisy fills Mica in on Geneva’s arrest, and Mica almost slips on a wig hearing this news. Mica says she can totally picture Geneva going HAM on the cabbie, given how Geneva’s told Mica off in the past. Then she lets her chinchilla lick her cell phone. Finally, swinging on her stripper pole then promptly falling off of it, Mica ponders the fabulousness that is Mica.
Tonight’s guests on Watch What Happens Live were Kenya Moore and Daisy Lewellyn from Blood, Sweat and Heels. Daisy shared an update on her cancer battle and Kenya shared her thoughts on the reunion nonsense tonight. Kenya also dished on her boyfriend and her Brandi Glanville feud.
Andy mentions his surprise that Phaedra shared tonight on the reunion that she isn’t filing for divorce from Apollo Nida. Kenya says it was it news to her, too. She also says that Porsha Williams’ new accusations that Kordell cheated was something she hadn’t heard before. “I heard the opposite, but…”
Tonight the THREE-Part Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion begins – meaning the drama between NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss will finally explode! Actually it seems like the entire reunion is NeNe-central (sorry NoNeensters!) because as Kandi explains, “She had a break-through.”
“She was bringing up some things in her past that really struck a nerve with her. Like talking about things in her childhood.” says Kandi of NeNe’s sobbing meltdown. “It brought about a different emotion.”
Apparently NeNe’s meltdown was a bonding moment for the group as all the women comforted her. “It was better than last year’s [reunion]. There was no hair pulling, so I guess that was progress,” Kandi laughs. “But, how do you have all this arguing and then skip off?”
