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.
Believe it or not, Don’t Be Tardy is one of the most enjoyable shows. Sure, there isn’t a lot of “drama” and almost every “argument” is resolved by the end of each half hour episode, but it’s an easy, family show to watch for a change. It’s certainly not groundbreaking television, but it’s entertaining in a refreshing way.
In complete contradiction to the sweet, family time on their own show, I have to say that Kim Zolciak and Brielle Biermann more than earned their renewal on the Bravo network thanks to their drama with the Atlanta Housewives. These two carried that season on their back, so I don’t blame Bravo for rewarding them with another season of their own show.
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.
Eva Marcille joined the Real Housewives of Atlanta very late in the game. She didn’t show up on the scene until the middle of the show’s current season. This was around the same time that Kenya Moore decided to dip out on the cast trip to Spain after spending the whole season concealing her super private marriage. Coincidence? I think not.
Since Kenya is not down to share much of her reality on a reality show, there have been rampant rumors that Eva was brought on the show to phase out Kenya. We haven’t really seen Eva and Kenya interact this season, since Kenya skipped the Spain trip, and has been absent for a majority of season amid rumors that she has been uncooperative with production. So why does Eva say that Kenya is “coming for” her when they barely know each other? Maybe Kenya is feeling threatened by the new girl stealing her full-time status on the show?
I cannot be more excited for the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. Specifically, I just want to see Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes going at it over bugs, health problems, and handicap parking spaces. Sure, there has been other drama this season, but a NeNe vs. Kim showdown is classic RHOA. I am more than ready for it.
Kim got me even more pumped up for the reunion episodes when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live. She discussed that infamous “roach” video, Kroy Biermann‘s chauffeur services, and even some reunion conspiracy theories.
Last week, Bravo released the reunion seating chart, which showed Kenya in the last seat on a the sofa – a place she’s never previously occupied courtesy of her s#*t-starting ways. Kenya’s peach is reportedly about to be smashed over her refusal to film for most of the season and her secret marriage (including her allegedly difficult to deal with husband). However, sources reveal that on the couches Kenya whipped out the trump card by announcing that she’s finally pregnant and is due before the end of the year. Kenya’s husband Marc also may make an appearance.
All hell broke loose when Sheree told Kim about NeNe questioning Kim’s health during the cast trip to Barcelona. Kim retaliated by sending a scathing group text about NeNe parking in a handicap space and having roaches in her bathroom. Now NeNe wants nothing to do with Kim, Sheree, and even Sheree’s prison boo Tyrone Gilliams.
Love her or hate her, you have to admit that Kim Zolciak is true MVP on Real Housewives of AtlantaSeason 10 so far. She doesn’t even hold up a peach in the opening credits, yet she delivers buzz-worthy moments every single time she shows up and I cannot say the same for everyone else in the full-time cast. No one knows how to stir it up like Kim Zolciak and I’m just dying to see her and NeNe Leakes go at it during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion episodes (and judging from Brielle’s latest Tweets, things get heated!).
Bravo released the seating chart for the Season 10 reunion which filmed yesterday and truthfully I’m a little thrown off by who is sitting where, but what I really want to know is what went down with the side players like Kim, Marlo Hampton, and Eva Marcille who do not have designated spaces on either couch.
