You have to give Kim Zolciak some props. She didn’t even attend the Real Housewives of Atlanta trip to Barcelona, there were three women on the trip who aren’t even cast members, yet she was still the focus of the last episode. She more than earned her Friend of the Housewives paycheck, the spotlight is on her, and she got to achieve both of those things back in Atlanta while she chilled with her man and kids.
Kim stole the show when she sent that brutal group text to the entire group with photos of NeNe Leakes’ car parked in a handicap parking space and a video from NeNe’s bathroom with roaches running around.
Cynthia told Porsha Williams to tell her if she heard anything else about her boo Will Jones, yet she got offended when Porsha did just that. Then, NeNe decided she and Cynthia should get the best rooms and said “the older girls need to go up” and the “middle age” girls need to downgrade their rooms. Then she got offended when Kandi Burruss conveyed the same exact message that she did but she used the word “elder” instead. NeNe continued to insist that she wasn’t talking about age even though that was what she was talking about.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were in Barcelona where the most exciting sight they saw were the roaches (errrr… “water bugs”) in NeNe Leakes bathroom. Hey, I guess it beats some lame sightseeing tour, right?! This was Cynthia Bailey‘s fault – they were supposed to be visiting a church but their wonderful hostess hauled them all the way there only to discover it was closed. So they had to make their own entertainment, and that is never a good thing.
So, Barcelona: beautiful weather, gorgeous phallic buildings, stunning culture… yet all the same drama. You can take the girls out of Atlanta, but you can’t take the Atlanta out of the girls. From the moment the women land on Spanish soil, there is bickering and shadiness.
Usually the pre-trip Real Housewives episode is a snooze, but last night was the opposite. Maybe it’s because so many episodes of RHOA have been interrupted for important real life events like Holidays and Super Bowls (the butt-implanted Uber driver of Kim Zolciak‘s heart must have watched it pining wistfully; gently touching the TV with his mitts while Kim screamed KROOOOOOOOY in a voice so shrill it could be heard in the next dimension, and then threw a wig over his dreams flatscreen. Kim needs her solo cup refilled – and she needs it NOW!).
Kourtney Kardashian headed off to NYC with her family, including niece North West. They were spotted around the city and photographed doing a little ice skating, too. Also seen in NYC: Yolanda Hadid as she promoted the latest episode of her new reality show.
The door between NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams remains closed, people! At least for now, and possibly for a good chunk of the season to come on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. NeNe claims it’s because she is held to a higher standard than Porsha – and the rest of the cast, in fact – when it comes to owning up to her behavior.
Laying blame entirely at Porsha’s feet for their beef, NeNe justifies her actions at Marlo Hampton’s tea party, at which absolutely nothing was resolved between the warring women. NeNe defends, “I definitely don’t think we got anywhere at Marlo’s tea party! I’m still very puzzled as to why I even had to sit down and talk with Porsha about something she totally created.”
I was actually really pleased by last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta. In addition to the usual drama and bickering, all the ladies came together to film a PSA produced by Kenya Moore about domestic violence. It was thoughtful, emotional, and really prescient – so here’s to RHOA setting a good example for once! Of course we also had to squeeze in some necessary nonsense.
It’s been THREE long weeks since we’ve checked in on our peaches. They went to San Fran, that ended in disaster, and now the disasters have been toted back to Atlanta in borrowed and fake Birkins and trudged on by Jimmy Choos.
This Real Housewives of Atlanta season got off to a slow start, but it looks like things have finally started to pick up. Fortunately/Unfortunately, a lot of the drama that went down during the filming of Season 10 has leaked in the press and on social media.
Now, Kandi Burrussis opening up about what to expect. Well, she isn’t sharing too much. She was a guest on Live With Kelly and Ryan with Andy Cohen filling in as a substitute host for Ryan Seacrest, so she couldn’t really spill too much without getting in trouble with her boss.
