That doormat-induced argument between Porsha Williamsand Marlo Hampton (temporarily) took the spotlight away from that group text about a roach-infested bathroom and a parking in a handicap space. Obviously roachgate will be revived as soon as the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast returns to the United States, but in the mean time, Porsha storming out of the group trip is a distraction from NeNe Leakes’latest controversy.
NeNe is preparing for a big battle at home with Kim Zolciak– or at least that’s what I imagine. In the meantime, she can waste spend some time dissecting the inconsequential Porsha and Marlo argument.
Last year Shamea Morton spent most of her appearances on Real Housewives of Atlanta defending herself against false hookup/relationship accusations. With that said, it’s pretty hypocritical for her to ask Eva Marcille, who she just met, about some supposed rumors that she dated Missy Elliot.
In all honesty, it just felt like a quest for increased screen time and Eva has no issue putting Shamea (and her dehydration) in check.
You would think after Kim Zolciak sent everyone – cast, crew, employee at the convenience store near NeNe’s house – a video supposedly showing roaches in NeNe’s bathroom, NeNe would be on a full-scale rampage. Instead she is calm and collected when she joins the ladies for brunch the next morning. It is everyone else who’s saltier than the hairy balls olives NeNe was scared to eat!
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.
