The Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion was going so well until Kim Zolciak showed up. I mean, people with feuds as old as their suddenly rejuvenated (and impregnated) ovaries were having civil discussions about those times they accused each other of being prostitutes to one-eyed Africans (do neither Porsha Williams nor Kenya Moore STILL not understand that ‘one-eyed’ referred to the African’s “D” – not that he’s an actual cyclops. Now you know KandiBurruss secretly wrote a “For The D” rap about that…). Then of course with all that peace, love, and Leave Will Alone, Kim Showed up.
Now that girl… Kim looked like she was wearing a Jessica Rabbit Halloween costume. And what on earth is Kroy Biermann doing with his life? He needs a Tabatha take over, because he’s apparently so depressed about being released from the NFL that he’s lost all purpose in life. It’s like the dude followed-up on a Craigslist post seeking personal assistant and wound up working for this crazy person who expects him to just follow around carrying her Solo cups and making sure all her outfits match said Solo cups – outfits he also has to pry her into using tweezers.
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.
The first part of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta was pretty tame by comparison to what we’ve come to expect. I mean the only things that happened were a pregnancy announcement, blackmail revelation, and your mama jokes. Low-key, right?!
The most important thing about any reunion are obviously the outfits. Apparently if you are a Real Housewives Of Atlanta star the reunion is your equivalent of the Academy Awards. But all the stylists are busy and the only gowns left are the ones no one wants to wear.
What we really must discuss is Porsha Williams‘s crown. Umm… She’s elevated from Princess of THOTlandia (where one’s crowing achievement is twerking in hot pants) to Queen of Delusion. Although she claims to be the Goddess of Good Thoughts or something – good thoughts except when she’s calling Kandi Burruss “Victim Victoria,” Goddess Of Never Letting Go.
Out of the blue Sheree is incredibly pressed about Porsha Williams supposedly warning Shamea Morton that none of the women can be trusted – including Sheree. Poor Sheree – she’s been carrying everyone’s bones while having Porsha’s back, and is repaid by Porsha dismissing their friendship. Now Sheree has a bone to pick with Porsha – except she’s passive aggressively avoiding her by hiding in her basement staring at the abyss of Moore Manor.
Why would Shamea, Porsha’s so-called BFF, be sharing her text message with Desperee?! Hmmm… We never get an answer to that by the way.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion trailer is nothing short of explosive. I would not be at all surprised if Andy Cohenhas some hearing damage after sitting in the middle of the Kim Zolciak vs. NeNe Leakes screaming match. Clearly, these two going at it is going to be a major highlight of the reunion.
Kandi Burrussand a crown-wearing Porsha Williams continue to go back and forth over their Season 9 drama, which is understandable considering that Porsha told everyone that Kandi wanted to drug and rape her for over a year. Kenya Moore comes for wannabe cast member Marlo Hampton’sfriendship with NeNe and her perennially vague professional life. And of course, Sheree Whitfield’s prison boo Tyrone Gilliamscontinues to give more to this show than most of the paid cast members- and he’s doing it all via collect call from prison.
I never suspected Kenya had faked her marriage, but like NeNe Leakes alluded I always assumed Kenya was much more in love with Marc than he is with her. Just based purely on how Kenya describes him and their relationship gives me the willies actually! And seeing Marc, mingling around last night, something seemed … off. It wasn’t just camera jitters or nerves about what the women (and show) may have in store for him, it was an animosity. Dude, you married a woman on a TV show, you knew what you were getting into!
Last week, Bravo released the reunion seating chart, which showed Kenya in the last seat on a the sofa – a place she’s never previously occupied courtesy of her s#*t-starting ways. Kenya’s peach is reportedly about to be smashed over her refusal to film for most of the season and her secret marriage (including her allegedly difficult to deal with husband). However, sources reveal that on the couches Kenya whipped out the trump card by announcing that she’s finally pregnant and is due before the end of the year. Kenya’s husband Marc also may make an appearance.
