At this point, Kim Zolciak contributes more to Real Housewives of Atlanta by not showing up than a lot of the cast members do when they are actually present. Kim skipping out on the cast trip to Barcelona was a highly talked about topic.
Kim’s frienemy-tuned-enemy NeNe Leakes questioned everything from Kim’s marriage to her health. Porsha Williams mentioned this to Kim while they were on the phone and Kim clapped back with a SCATHING group text about NeNe. The ladies couldn’t keep Kim’s name out of their mouths, but they should not have expected her to show up anyway. Kim claims that she “made sure” the cast trips were not a part of her contract as a “Friend of the Housewives” this season.
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.
NeNe Leakes is keeping things shady and we love her for it. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared some thoughts on Cynthia Bailey‘s taste, Kenya Moore skipping the trip to Spain and she even weighs in Cynthia and Peter and the possibility of them reuniting.
NeNe was asked if she was worried about Cynthia planning the trip when she was talking about the budget. In true NeNe style, she responded: “I was never worried about Cynthia planning the trip! She has good taste, but we like different things. I always need my sleep accommodations to be really nice, clean, and comfortable when traveling.”
On this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak ruffled feathers (as usual) when she expressed her desire to bring husband Kroy Biermann along on a girls trip. Kim has more than a few words for her co-stars regarding her priorities and their jealousy of her marriage.
Kim is convinced that her co-stars rip on her relationship with Kroy because they’re jealous of a healthy and happy marriage. She blogged that she wasn’t shocked to see the girls resisting Kroy tagging along on the trip, “I wasn’t surprised at all! Some of these same girls complain that Kroy drops me off or picks me up from events. It’s bizarre. You would think that they would support my healthy, happy marriage, but then again they don’t have that, so why would they? It’s evident that they are envious of mine.”
It looks like things really start heating up on Real Housewives of Atlanta during the next episode when Kim Zolciak goes off on NeNe Leakes about roaches and handicap parking. Other than Kim’s explosive guest appearances, this has been a slow-moving season so far.
Most of the time it’s extremely annoying when a Real Housewife doesn’t let go of an issue from a previous season, but there are exceptions. For instance, it’s hard for me to understand why so many fans are giving Kandi Burruss shit for “refusing to let it go” when it comes to her animosity toward Porsha Williams.
Porsha spread rumors that Kandi wanted to date rape her for over a year. Those allegations go beyond throwing shade in an on-camera interview during Real Housewives of Atlanta. I do not blame Kandi for wanting nothing to do with Porsha. Nevertheless, they both signed on for Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10, so they have to see each other.
Usually the pre-trip Real Housewives episode is a snooze, but last night was the opposite. Maybe it’s because so many episodes of RHOA have been interrupted for important real life events like Holidays and Super Bowls (the butt-implanted Uber driver of Kim Zolciak‘s heart must have watched it pining wistfully; gently touching the TV with his mitts while Kim screamed KROOOOOOOOY in a voice so shrill it could be heard in the next dimension, and then threw a wig over his dreams flatscreen. Kim needs her solo cup refilled – and she needs it NOW!).
