We’ve been ranking all the Real Housewives from every season, every franchise and its finally down to the final few. The queens of Bravo, if you will. Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of our ranking.
What separates a good Housewife from a great one? For me, it’s the longevity of their dramas. Will their actions or comments forever define a franchise as Teresa Giudice‘s table flip did for New Jersey, or NeNe Leakes‘ “Close your legs to married men, Wig!” on Atlanta? A great Housewife doesn’t necessarily have to be likable, but she does have to be memorable, and defining. When you think of a particular show which Housewife comes to mind.
Considering that the Atlanta Falcons were playing in the big game, it’s not super surprising that the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars turned up in Houston to support the team. NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey were back on their best friend game at Super Bowl events together and Porsha Williams even took part in a charity basketball game.
I’m confused by why it was a charity basketball game and not a game of touch football, but it’s philanthropy, so I’m not going to question it further. Even though the Falcons lost, they at had a lot of hometown support from the RHOAladies.
When you grow up with a mom who’s made her entire fortune on the promise of reality TV exposure and paychecks, I guess it’s only natural to follow in her footsteps. Even if those footsteps map out a road to early and questionable plastic surgeries, partially-nude selfies, and fame-chasing! Brielle Biermann, Don’t Be Tardy star and daughter of Real Housewives Of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciack-Biermann, is no exception.
Brielle and boyfriend Michael Kopech, a White Sox pitching prospect, recently visited the windy city – and Brielle fell in love! With Chicago, that is. She posted the above pic, captioning it “obsessed with you and chicago.” So, what’s the next natural step? Requesting a Real Housewives of her very own!
This week, Cynthia talked to Matt Jordan on Kenya‘s behalf, which was a nice thing to do, but when she reported back to Kenya by calling her “dramatic” and implying that she had somehow caused Matt’s violence, Kenya was not having it. Now Cynthia is defending her behavior. The convo that Cynthia had with Matt wasn’t too bad. Her loyalty was clear and she seemed to genuinely care for both parties involved. Nevertheless, things got messy when Cynthia recapped it with Kenya.
I was wondering which Housewife was going to bring the term “alternative facts” into play first, but I just didn’t think it would happen this soon. Kenya Moore went in on her mortal enemy Sheree Whitfield for the comments that she made about Kenya “antagonizing” Matt Jordan‘s violent behavior.
Normally I love it when Sheree and Kenya beef. They usually both cross the line pretty equally so it all comes out in the wash and ends up being pretty hilarious, but I feel like Sheree was definitely in the wrong with this one. Since when does someone getting violent the victim’s fault? That’s like me blaming for Sheree’s behavior for Bob Whitfield skipping out on years of child support. It. Makes. No. Sense.
Speaking to blogger Love B Scott, they go deep into the psychology of Matt, and how it compares to Kenya’s situation with her mom, plus why she thinks some Housewives have SERIOUSLY crossed the line this season! “Honesty is key and I learned that very early on. You cannot fake for the cameras,” advises Kenya. “The cameras will see whatever it is.”
On Kenya’s “shit-show with Matt“: (as termed by Love B Scott.), Bravo only found out about Matt’s behavior the first time he broke the Moore Manor garage window. She first experienced his anger in Mexico, when they were dating for over a year.
