This season, Kim appeared here and there more than willing to stir the pot, but she had a rough time filmed the reunion. Now it seems like the “Friend of the Housewives” paychecks just aren’t worth it to her anymore. She claims she is done with the show, but is she really?
How does that old saying go? The frienemy of my frienemy is my friend. Well, that’s not the actual saying, but it’s definitely applicable when it comes to NeNe Leakes siding with Marlon Wayans after he made a joke about Kim Zolciak’s appearance during the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion.
Marlon posted an unflattering screen shot of Kim with the caption “No we are not in production on White Chicks 2. The f**k?!” That did not sit well with Mrs. Biermann, but obviously NeNe thought it was hilarious.
With Watch What Happens Live taping in Los Angeles all week, it was a guarantee that Real Housewives cast members from the past and present would show up and take a lot of photos together. The Los Angeles taping meant that Housewives and alums from Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed up in droves.
Original Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (obviously), Jeana Keough, and Lauri Peterson showed up for a taping along with Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, Jill Zarin, Dina Manzo (who lives in California now), Eileen Davidson, and NeNe Leakes among others.
Now that Andy Cohen is in California to tape a week of Watch What Happens Live episodes, he is doing more than asking the questions. To promote this week of shows, Andy is doing a lot of interviews and he is the one answering the questions.
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.
