The polls are closed and the votes are tallied in our First Annual Reality Tea Readers’ Choice Awards! Stay tuned today as we unveil the winners for each of the categories you voted in over the past two weeks. Some of the results might really surprise you!
NeNe won the award with just under 30% of the votes! One of the most popular write-in votes was for former RHOA star Kim Zolciak. Other notable write-ins: Phaedra’s kids, Miss Sharon, and Miss Lawrence.
See the Runners Up in order of votes received below!
Kenya chooses to not use Porsha’s name in her blog this week, referring to her as NeNe’s new BFF instead. “Although NeNe has barely spoken to me this season, I wasn’t surprised to learn that she invited her new BFF to drinks. I also wasn’t shocked to see that despite it all, she still refuses to apologize for her violent actions. This is after NeNe, Phaedra, and Andy (to name a few) have all suggested she do so.”
Oh Real Housewives Of Atlanta – for all their ‘hate is real’ when it comes right down to it these ladies know how to have a good time! And laughter is the best medicine, as they say.
NeNe Leakes put on her lace football jersey and strategized about how she could re-unifiy this group, so she invited Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams for drinks to help them make amends. But the Hail Mary pass came when she sneak-invited Kenya Moore by telling Cynthia to “bring her girl.”
NeNe didn’t tell Porsha until she was seated at the bar, drink in hand, expecting a good old-fashioned keke about how NeNe should stop wearing denim short-shorts and Cynthia should watch those RHOA flashback scenes with woe because her fashions have gone as downhill as her finances!
Reality TV is usually known for its TERRIBLE fashions, but once in a while a gal (or guy) gets it right. Rarely, but hey – it happens. Lord knows this list was a struggle, I had to really search and search – wrack my memory, so to speak – to find the good looks.
However, after careful consideration, lots of overlooking, and focusing on the positives here’s my pick for best dressed reality TV stars of 2014. Many people are on this list because of progress made – even if it’s merely outfit to outfit progress, but remember we’re thinking positively. <side eye>
Mama Drama: “It saddens me to see Kandi still going through such heartache with her mother, and blended and extended family,” said Kenya. “This should be the happiest time of her life, but it has been overshadowed by the constant infighting. I hope for peace for Kandi and that she can focus on extending her family with a new little one soon. She deserves it.” Kandi’s problem is Kandi.
Despite evidence to the contrary, NeNe Leakes is human y’all and sometimes she makes mistakes – like that WIG she was wearing on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Of course because NeNe Leakes is also NeNe Leakes, she claims fabulosity comes at a price and sometimes the truly creative designers among us take a risk which explains her lifelong episode of being foliculely challenged!
NeNe admits that WIG didn’t work, but says she is just soooooo busy being soooooo fabulous and soooooo successful and sooooo ‘nother level she did not have time to obsess over her hair. A very rich bitch pays her best accessories – the gays – to be in charge of her appearance, cause a rich bitch has little mini gays she carries around in her Firkin. BTW: does this mean we can now call NeNe “WIG”? I digress.
“As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don’t work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn’t work,” NeNe states. “I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I’d rather not!”
Andy surmised that it must be hard for Phaedra to watch this season of RHOA considering all she has gone through – and is still going through – with Apollo. “Definitely. Any time you are dealing with something very personal in the media and on TV it’s very difficult,” said Phaedra. “It’s quite uncomfortable.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a modern day fairytale! Maidens dueled over the elusive Roger Bobb, prince of production-ville, NeNe Leakes was cursed by an evil gay and and was doomed to an episode of bad wigs, and Phaedra Parks turned to stone. Ahhh… love!
Before any of this happens we’re confronted with Mama Joyce. First thing, right out of the gate, like bad news before coffee in the morning that’s too early. Kandi Burruss‘ family is having a BBQ, she arrives with Todd, and she’s not speaking to Joyce because her boyfriend destroyed the house Kandi gave her, which Kandi, for some reason, didn’t know until after she bought MJ a new house. Things that make you go hmm…
