To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlantastarted off with a bang would be a total lie. Sure, there is a lot of talk about Kenya Moore’s surprise marriage, but everyone who follows Real Housewivesin the off-season already knew about that, so it wasn’t at all shocking by the time the first episode aired.
On the bright side, Cynthia Bailey has moved out of that “Will they or won’t they get back together?” phase of her divorce and she is back in the dating pool. It isn’t the most exciting story line at this point, but I can’t help loving Cynthia and rooting for her. Even so, I can’t wait for things to intensify next episode when Kim Zolciakreturns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.
I’ll tell you what is about the most disappointing thing that could ever happen on a Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode – that I did not get to experience Sheree Whitfield Vs. Party Planner: The Resurrection. I was all excited for a revival of the infamous “Who gon’ check me boo?” moment (like basically my favorite real Housewives moment ever), and instead I got a lackluster mini-fit of Sheree tearing off her mic and acting like a normal person under stress. Let’s just call this what it is – unacceptable!
See, I depend on Sheree to act like, well, Sheree. Sheree of yore, that is. Like “Budget, what’s that?!” This new evolved, life-coached Sheree, who is essentially your average busy-body after an extra pumpkin spice latte and behaves strangely mature-ish (for her), is a real snooze.
Season ten of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta is already bringing the drama, and we’re only two weeks in! With cast members forming alliances based on old wounds, plus boomeranging housewives NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann back to liven things up, Porsha Williams is ready to rumble. But the new post-anger-management-Porsha says her go-to move this year is standing still while the storm rages around her.
Porsha visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to talk about her feelings on NeNe’s return, why Kandi Burruss mocking her “medical condition” shocked her, and whether she’s talked to ShaedraPhaedra Parks recently. Also – Porsha explains why megaphones still trigger her to this day! Kenya Moore’s props department is on notice, we presume.
After the last Real Housewives of Atlanta season was centered around Kandi Burruss, this current one seems like a breeze for her two episodes in. That’s probably because most of Kandi’s drama is playing out on the docuseries with her girl group Xscape. The tension between Kandi and these ladies rivals the tension between Kandi and Porsha Williams on RHOA.
There seems to be a lot of love there, but there are issues over the past and the present that the ladies still don’t seem to agree on. So of course Andy Cohen was stirring up the pot when Kandi and the rest of the group stopped by the Bravo clubhouse to tape a Watch What Happens Live episode.
Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey is stranded at the lake all by herself with no one but the leaves to talk to. If it sounds like the start of a bad – very bad – horror movie where a desperate, lonely woman turns to the wrong kind of guy, you’re right! After a relaxing bath, Cynthia finds herself on a date where she is blindfolded and wandering the dark and creepy hallways of a chicken farm while getting her photo taken by Malcolm X’s long-lost twin, Evan.
Sheree delivers some joyous news for She by Sheree fans. “I am currently working on revamping She by Shereé. The line will be more of what I call “lifestyle” apparel, with fashionable and comfortable pieces that can take you from gym to lunch or running errands with a few pieces you can carry into a night out on the town. In today’s society, women are strong and powerful but are looking for comfortable, cute, quality pieces because the women of today are also very busy! We juggle and balance so much with so little downtime.”
The first episode was a pretty easy one for Kandi. Her restaurant is doing well, she didn’t argue with anyone, and she even won the Cynthia Bailey lookalike contest. I’m sure that the lack of drama for Kandi is short-lived though. This is Real Housewives of Atlanta, after all.
It is still so hard to believe that Kenya Moore is actually married and apparently I’m not the only one who was (and is still) shocked by the news. Kenya’s girl Cynthia Bailey was caught off guard, but she did play along when Kenya asked her to refer to Kenya’s man by “Baby” instead of his actual name – which is very reminiscent to the Big Poppa era of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
As expected, NeNe Leakes wasn’t here for that nonsense. She went out of her way asking the questions the viewers want to know about Kenya’s mysterious marriage. Kenya maintained that it was a small ceremony and she didn’t even invite her own dad to walk her down the aisle, but Kandi Burruss pointed out that there was a good amount of people in the pictures. So why wasn’t Kenya’s “best friend” Cynthia included? SMH.
