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.
As much it (typically) annoys me when a Housewives story line gets dragged out for more than one season, but there is one exception: I don’t blame Kandi Burruss for wanting nothing to do with Porsha Williams after Porsha spent a whole year spreading lies about Kandi wanting to drug and rape her. That really goes beyond a Real Housewives of Atlanta story line.
In all honesty, I feel like Kandi oscillating between shading Porsha and treating her coldly is a lot more than she deserves. Obviously Porsha and Kandi are coworkers and their job as reality stars does have a lot of overlap with their social lives, so this is a tough situation for Kandi to navigate. I can understand why the viewers are annoyed that this “story line” is still going on, but what Porsha did goes beyond tugging on a wig, waving a fan at a reunion, or making fun of a doormat. This is a serious offense and she should just be grateful that Kandi didn’t take legal action against her.
So it seems like she is still cool with Andy and the Bravo network, but what about the Beverly Hills cast? And that is the obstacle Brandi needs to overcome if she does want to reclaim her diamond. Andy is on board with Brandi’s return, but there’s something she needs to accomplish for that to happen.
Wow. That last Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode was intense. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave decided to tell Lisa Rinna about something Dorit Kemsley said three months prior using her accountability coach job title as an excuse for her honesty. On one hand, it makes sense that Teddi would want to get that off her chest, but the timing could have been way better. Why wait that long and until they were actually getting along?
Then the tension between Teddi and Dorit turned into a face off between Teddi and Erika Girardi. Teddi accused Erika of having “pretend amnesia.” Erika interpreted that as Teddi calling her a liar and Erika showed a level of anger that we haven’t seen since that Hong Kong freak out. Teddi shouldn’t have insinuated that Erika was lying, but Erika struck back at her a little too hard. It really didn’t seem like Teddi was trying to stir shit up, but her attempt to do the right thing blew up in her face and she left the restaurant crying. It’s a messy situation all around, but have no fear: Dorit was on Watch What Happens Live last night to make everything even messier.
So of course Jeremy’s sister Ariana Madix and her man Tom Sandoval flipped out and stepped up in Jeremy’s defense. The editors also blessed us with some previously unseen footage of Jeremy hitting on Stassi at Tom Schwartzand Katie Maloney’swedding, which wasn’t the most flattering. Then again, if most of us were filmed mid-wedding reception, the footage wouldn’t be the most flattering.
Aside from her (seemingly) controlling ex-husband, Porsha Williams has not had a legitimate love interest on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sure, we’ve been subjected to viewing some failed dates and some faux relationships, but nothing that felt like more than a story line.
Nevertheless, a lot of people are really pushing for Porsha to get together her Dish Nation coworker Rickey Smiley.
There are few things better than a Real Housewives crossover. It’s always interesting to have more than one Real Housewife in the same room, but it’s even more exciting to have cast members from different shows in one place. These moments make for the best Instagram posts.
Maybe time does heal all wounds. She even made her way to the clubhouse for an episode of Watch What Happens Live. They did not actually discuss the possibility of bringing Brandi back as a Real Housewife, I’m still hoping for it since she makes a point to be up to date on all of the latest drama in Beverly Hills.
