Marlo Hampton

NeNe is disgusted with Kim

That doormat-induced argument between Porsha Williams and 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.

Cynthia Scarecrow Look

That last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was so confusing. Were Marlo Hampton and Porsha Williams actually arguing over the size of a doormat? Obviously, the insults escalated after the original exchange about the doormat, but I just don’t understand how it went from zero to one hundred so quickly.

I can’t help but assume that Marlo was on a quest to rile up Porsha to guarantee some camera time, but other than that, I am thrown off by the doormat drama and so was Cynthia Bailey.

Eva Marcille

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.

NeNe Leakes and Marlo Hampton

Last night was Marlo Hampton’s first appearance on Watch What Happens Live and she provided the Real Housewives of Atlanta fandom with more questions than answers.

Marlo continued to remain a mystery. NeNe Leakes continued to shade Kim Zolciak. Andy Cohen continued to stir the pot.

Marlo Hampton

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, it was Porsha Williams who had a nervous breakdown in Barcelona, even though NeNe Leakes was the one battling demon ex-friends and roaches.

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!

Kim Zolciak's Revenge

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 Bailey

Did Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes forget that they are filming a reality show? I find that hard to believe, but it’s the only (semi-)plausible explanation for that last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode.

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.

Porsha & Shamea in Barcelona

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.
