Marlo Hampton

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.

NeNe Leakes & KIm Zolciak

The best part of the last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was when Marlo Hampton calmly fixed NeNe Leakes’ hair while she was in the middle of yelling at Porsha Williams.

Porsha cannot get over NeNe answering a hypothetical question about who she would fire during a Watch What Happens Live appearance. NeNe will not own up to what she said and now she’s going in on Porsha on behalf of Kandi Burruss. I’m really just waiting for Kandi to blow up at Porsha since Porsha did spread rumors that Kandi wanted to date rape her, but Kandi refuses to acknowledge her existence… except for those Porsha shit talking sessions during her staff meetings.

NeNe Leakes

What is it with these ladies on Real Housewives Of Atlanta? NeNe Leakes‘ husband Gregg is having serious health problems, and Kenya Moore‘s grandmother – who raised her! – just died, yet they’re all OK, let’s ditch everything to go party in San Francisco because Sheree Whitfield‘s life coach decided she needs some ME TIME. So, let Sheree take that ME without YOU time – y’all have other things going on!

So Sheree’s ‘doctor’s note’ means she decided to become a life coach herself and stage a rejuvenation from drama bonding trip. Remember how well that worked for Phaedra Parks?! Excuse me, but didn’t NeNe and Kenya actually hate Sheree like 15 minutes ago? Also, why San Francisco? Is there some secret prisoner’s girlfriend seminar happening?

Kim starts an argument with Kenya

And so it begins. The feud between Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kenya Moore is officially off to the races! The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates have no love for one another, to be sure, and in her blog this week Kim explains her specific reasons for detesting Kenya. She also claims that being an “OG” of the show gives her a different perspective than most, and being back in the drama “felt like 2007 all over again.”

Clearing up matters on when she met Sheree Whitfield, Kim says, “I met Shereé 14 or 15 years ago through NeNe. NeNe and I went out for the night and ran into Shereé, and the rest is history — we’ve been friends since.” This stands in contrast to NeNe Leakes’ statement that Kim and Sheree only met during season one of filming RHOA. And speaking of feuds – check out NeNe and Kim’s twitter wars on this subject (and more) if you really want to roll around in the mud!

NeNe Leakes Thinks Kim Zolciak Was “Looking For Some Sh*t To Start” At Her Party

Love her or hate her, you have to admit the the drama on this Real Housewives of Atlanta season went up a notch as soon as Kim Zolciak showed up at NeNe Leakes’ party.

Kim picked up right where she left off last season: coming for her newfound nemesis Kenya Moore.
