Kandi Burruss Teases Drama On The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Trip To Barcelona

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 Burruss is 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.

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Brittany Cartwright, Bethenny Frankel, Chelsea Houska, & More

With Christmas fast-approaching, there is so much to enjoy from decorating, from holiday shows to even turning up with friends. Your favorite reality stars celebrated the holidays a little bit early and shared some photos just in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

The Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer gathered for the annual Christmas party at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Where was Carole Radziwill, though? Maybe she’s the one who took the group photo. Otherwise it would be a real shame if she missed out on a Dorinda-hosted event after she “cooked, decorated, and made it nice.”

Kenya laughs at her fake wedding

After years of being the odd one out on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore finally found some compassion from the cast when she was grieving the loss of her grandmother, the only mother figure she’s ever known. As soon as Kenya left the cast trip to San Francisco to be with her family, she became the topic of conversation among the cast.

Leave it to Marlo Hampton to stir shit up bring up Kenya’s marriage and field the group for their opinions about whether not she is actually married. Kenya’s closest friend in the cast, Cynthia Bailey, was visibly uncomfortable with the gossip and she walked out of the dinner.

NeNe questions Sheree's man

As expected, Porsha Williams going vegan is not entertaining enough to be her sole story line this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. That’s why she refuses to let go when it comes to the comment NeNe Leakes made in response to a viewer question on Watch What Happens Live.

Obviously Porsha has to resort to do something to save her spot on this show, but the woman who spread date rape rumors last season is the last person who should be starting drama. NeNe doesn’t seem to care though. Yes, she did yell at Porsha during the cast trip to San Francisco, but that’s just NeNe.

Cynthia Bailey & Kenya Moore

Cynthia Bailey’s relevance on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has always been somewhat questionable, but this season it appears that she’s taking on the role of Kenya Moore’s #1 defender. She explains in her blog why she thinks her cast mates are being unfair to Kenya about her “secret” marriage to Marc Daly, and why she also empathizes with Porsha Williams.

Cynthia reflects on why she felt compelled to comfort Porsha on the trolley in San Fran, even if she didn’t quite understand what her tears were all about. She explains, “It was on my heart to have a one on one with Porsha on the trolley in San Francisco because I felt compelled to try to help her get to a place of being open to listening and receiving some of the issues that some of the ladies were having with her, and not be defensive or feel attacked.”

Cynthia Bailey Explains Her Emotional Reaction When Marlo Hampton Questioned Kenya Moore’s Marriage

The friendship between Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore has come a long way since Kenya critiqued some model’s “coochie crack” at a casting session for the Bailey Agency during her first season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. These two did not hit it off immediately, but then they became very close friends- not “best friends” as Cynthia pointed out during the cast trip to Puerto Rico, but good friends.

Now Cynthia is sticking up for Kenya more than she ever has and she even walked out of the room when Marlo Hampton started to question the validity of Kenya’s marriage. Cynthia explained why she got so emotional during that cast trip and more during her latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Question Marc in Kenya's fake wedding

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta most of the ladies shocked me by putting on their big girl panties and behaving like actual adults. It was like visiting the Twilight Zone with the elegant, sophisticated ladies of Sheree Whitfield‘s dreams.

Porsha Williams finally learned the meaning of the word “accountability” and Cynthia Bailey realized if there’s one thing she discovered in her disastrous co-dependency with NeNe Leakes it’s to honor the friend contracts of her heart. Also, Marlo Hampton may have the best wardrobe, but she and her cat eye glasses are as messy as a litter box and need to be dumped!

You know what I despise about Housewives, how they’ll be in a gorgeous restaurant, all dressed up, then ruin it before the food even arrives! NeNe thinks Porsha deserves to be punished for what she did to NeNe Kandi Burruss. And that punishment is THE DOOR IS CLOSED.

I don’t know about y’all, but I am loving pretty much every second of this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Between dying over NeNe Leakes’ amazing closet (and her rekindled friendship with Marlo Hampton!) and feeling sympathy for Kenya Moore (never thought I’d type that!), this season is everything. Sheree Whitfield’s hair. Awesome. Cynthia Bailey’s dating life. I’m here for it!

Of course, Kandi Burruss usually tries to stay out of the fray when it comes to the ladies’ drama, but thanks to a nasty rumor last year started by Phaedra Parks and perpetuated by Porsha Williams, she hasn’t succeeded as much as she’d like. This season, with Phaedra gone, Kandi is doing her best to avoid Porsha without making the other women uncomfortable. However, this week, NeNe came for Porsha and stood up for Kandi all in the same screaming match.
