After years of being the odd one out on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore finally found some compassion from the cast when she was grieving the loss of her grandmother, the only mother figure she’s ever known. As soon as Kenya left the cast trip to San Francisco to be with her family, she became the topic of conversation among the cast.
Leave it to Marlo Hampton to stir shit up bring up Kenya’s marriage and field the group for their opinions about whether not she is actually married. Kenya’s closest friend in the cast, Cynthia Bailey, was visibly uncomfortable with the gossip and she walked out of the dinner.
Obviously Porsha has to resort to do something to save her spot on this show, but the woman who spread date rape rumors last season is the last person who should be starting drama. NeNe doesn’t seem to care though. Yes, she did yell at Porsha during the cast trip to San Francisco, but that’s just NeNe.
Cynthia reflects on why she felt compelled to comfort Porsha on the trolley in San Fran, even if she didn’t quite understand what her tears were all about. She explains, “It was on my heart to have a one on one with Porsha on the trolley in San Francisco because I felt compelled to try to help her get to a place of being open to listening and receiving some of the issues that some of the ladies were having with her, and not be defensive or feel attacked.”
The friendship between Cynthia Baileyand Kenya Moore has come a long way since Kenya critiqued some model’s “coochie crack” at a casting session for the Bailey Agency during her first season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. These two did not hit it off immediately, but then they became very close friends- not “best friends” as Cynthia pointed out during the cast trip to Puerto Rico, but good friends.
Now Cynthia is sticking up for Kenya more than she ever has and she even walked out of the room when Marlo Hamptonstarted to question the validity of Kenya’s marriage. Cynthia explained why she got so emotional during that cast trip and more during her latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlantamost of the ladies shocked me by putting on their big girl panties and behaving like actual adults. It was like visiting the Twilight Zone with the elegant, sophisticated ladies of Sheree Whitfield‘s dreams.
Porsha Williams finally learned the meaning of the word “accountability” and Cynthia Bailey realized if there’s one thing she discovered in her disastrous co-dependency with NeNe Leakes it’s to honor the friend contracts of her heart. Also, Marlo Hampton may have the best wardrobe, but she and her cat eye glasses are as messy as a litter box and need to be dumped!
You know what I despise about Housewives, how they’ll be in a gorgeous restaurant, all dressed up, then ruin it before the food even arrives! NeNe thinks Porsha deserves to be punished for what she did to NeNeKandi Burruss. And that punishment is THE DOOR IS CLOSED.
Of course, Kandi Burruss usually tries to stay out of the fray when it comes to the ladies’ drama, but thanks to a nasty rumor last year started by Phaedra Parks and perpetuated by Porsha Williams, she hasn’t succeeded as much as she’d like. This season, with Phaedra gone, Kandi is doing her best to avoid Porsha without making the other women uncomfortable. However, this week, NeNe came for Porsha and stood up for Kandi all in the same screaming match.
Lines have been drawn and wigs have been adjusted on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta – and we’re still at the starting line! Already, Cynthia Bailey is making no bones about who she supports in the Kim Zolciak versus Kenya Moore feud that will be raging all season long. She’s #TeamTwirl all the way, and she says so in her blog this week.
Cynthia admits that both Kim and Kenya said awful things to each other at NeNe Leakes’ party, but claims Kim was ultimately in the wrong for questioning Kenya’s marriage. “Although both ladies said some horrible things about each other during their argument, I honestly feel like Kim came into Casa Leakes coming for Kenya, and Kenya did not send for her! I think there would have been less drama had Kim been tardy for this party, LOL!”
