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 Zolciak released 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.
After a slow start, this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is very heated thanks to NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. As polarizing as they both can be, almost anyone can admit that they know how to bring it when it comes to stirring up controversy for this show.
Aside from feuding with each other over bug videos, handicap parking spaces, accusations of racism, and health diagnoses, they are both bringing individual controversies to the show as well. The women in the cast continue calling out Kim for her close relationship with husband/chauffeur Kroy Biermann and Kim just doesn’t understand any bit of what they’ve been attempting to convey. And then there’s NeNe who made some very offensive remarks about rape during a comedy show. Yikes- that goes beyond “bringing it for the show,” that’s for sure.
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.

Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
On this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak ruffled feathers (as usual) when she expressed her desire to bring husband Kroy Biermann along on a girls trip. Kim has more than a few words for her co-stars regarding her priorities and their jealousy of her marriage.
Kim is convinced that her co-stars rip on her relationship with Kroy because they’re jealous of a healthy and happy marriage. She blogged that she wasn’t shocked to see the girls resisting Kroy tagging along on the trip, “I wasn’t surprised at all! Some of these same girls complain that Kroy drops me off or picks me up from events. It’s bizarre. You would think that they would support my healthy, happy marriage, but then again they don’t have that, so why would they? It’s evident that they are envious of mine.”
