When NeNe Leakes and Marlo Hampton initially went from being close friends to enemies on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it really didn’t seem like there was a chance that they could restore their relationship. Never say never, though. NeNe and Marlo have had each other’s backs for all of Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10.
That’s why it’s interesting that Kenya Moore, one of Marlo’s enemies and former friends, chose the reunion show to reveal that Marlo attempted to black mail NeNe. Kenya claimed that Marlo got with John after NeNe did and took photos of their phone conversations when he was drunk at her place. Marlo also said that John paid for her Neiman Marcus bill. That’s a pretty damning accusation- that neither NeNe nor Marlo has denied. Instead, NeNe is just talking about how solid their relationship is now and insisting on leaving the past in the past. A lack of denial might as well be a confirmation, especially in this case.
Kim Zolciak has taken a lot of heat for her personal appearance for many years. From the wigs, to the cosmetic procedures (including nose job denials), to wardrobe choices, it seems like the Real Housewives of Atlanta OG is always giving the fans (and haters) something to talk about.
After all these years, Kim is used to the cast members and viewers coming for her, but now Marlon Wayans is getting in on the shade.
Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion delivered, but I can’t help looking ahead to that NeNe Leakes vs. Kim Zolciak confrontation. I actually wish that they had a whole episode dedicated to Kim and NeNe’s exchange of insults. Is it Sunday night yet? I am so ready.
Kim has been making guest appearances this season, collecting checks, and skipping out on all of the cast trips. Kim picking and choosing which events she wants to take part in did not sit well with the ladies. On top of that, Kim constantly brags about having her own show (Don’t Be Tardy) on the network and that doesn’t need to be a part of the ensemble cast on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi completely destroyed Kim for that constant dig in a fact-filled Instagram post.
The one person who was consistently bringing drama and good tea was Sheree Whitfield’s boo Tyrone Gilliams– and he was doing that all via collect call in a prison cell. He was bringing a lot more to the show than most of the full-time cast members, so I figured Sheree (and Tyrone by association) would definitely get asked back for Season 11. Apparently that might not be the case.
Kim saved it in her archives and unleashed on NeNe, accusing her having a roach-infested home. NeNe fired back with accusation of racism aimed at both Kim and Brielle. Roachgate took over the season and that’s why I thought it was hysterical when NeNe and her husband Gregg Leakesdressed as an exterminator and roach for their Halloween costumes. I laughed, Kim’s girl Sheree Whitfield even laughed, but Kim did not find it funny. At all.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members are known for their superior shade throwing abilities, except for Cynthia Bailey, who is known for being the nice and normal one in the cast. Sure, she says some funny things once in a while, but she’s never the one live tweeters are mentioning the most or the subject of memes. Every Housewives show has that one relatable person to round out the cast and Cynthia is that person- plus the fierce fashion and variety of hair and makeup combinations.
That’s why it’s so surprising that Cynthia is actually the one who came up with the idea for NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg Leakes to dress up as an exterminator and a roach for Halloween. After Kim Zolciakreleased a video of a bug in NeNe’s bathroom and accused her of having a roach-infested mansion. NeNe turned the scandal into a joke and ended up owning the situation, but it was actually Cynthia who helped her make such a clutch move.
The women pretended to like one costume over the other when they were just actually making their critiques based on which woman they were closer friends with. Kim Zolciak has not had one scene with Eva and she’s openly loyal to Sheree, so of course she preferred Sheree’s costume, but did she really say that Eva, a model, is “not pretty”? Really, Kim? Did she spend enough time talking about roachgate that she had to pretend that Eva was “not even a pretty f***ing Cleopatra”? What was the point of that?
