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…
Cynthia Bailey barely got the opportunity to raise her voice to a squeak during her altercation with NeNe Leakes, now Cynthia say she was just trying to command respect through telecommunication! Duh!
“Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star explains.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
With Andy in the hot seat, Brandi asked, “When was the last time you spoke to Joanna Krupa?” Andy said the Miami reunion. “Did you get food poisoning from the bad sushi that night?” snickered the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. “She’s stunning. You can’t help the odor situation.”
NeNe Leakes wishes people would only talk about how she’s a Broadway actress (you knew that, right?), but instead everybody wants to know what’s going on with Real Housewives Of Atlanta – most specifically her ex-friendship with Cynthia Bailey, who Andy Cohen likes the best, and her relationship with Teresa Giudice.
NeNe reveals that all the animosity viewers see on RHOA is legit! “The hate is real – the hate is really real,” NeNe announces. She says during her Broadway run she does not watch the show, “I don’t want to get caught up in the negativity.” Instead she relies on social media for information.
“We have our differences but in some big instances I will be there for support. Except when it comes to supporting Detroit Public Schools. I did it out of the goodness of my heart.” NeNe reminds us that she supported Kandi‘s sex toy line, Cynthia’s Bailey Agency opening, and supporting Porsha through her divorce and issues with Kenya.
Everyone is always trying to figure out which Real Housewives earn the most! Who is bringing home the most bacon per franchise – and the biggest question: who is the highest earner of them all? We’ve heard a lot of varying reports, but here comes another one speculating about the Housewives salaries.
Desperate to restore Real Housewives Of New York, Bravo tried to attract former supermodels and celebrity chefs to the franchise, but had to settle for Bethenny Frankel instead. In exchange, the network is rumored to have agreed to pay her $1 million + bonuses depending on the 7th season’s success.
Things pick up where they left off with NeNe Leakes bursting into tears – I firmly believe it was the false eyelash glue – before bellowing at Cynthia about how she has been scorned, left adrift in a desert of vicious reality television vultures waiting to pick the bones of her success and that she has arisen again like a falcon from the fiery depths of a barren civilization filed with predator silicone monsters in discount Louboutaaaans and the weaves stolen from the corpses of past Housewives but NeNe has praaaaayed for Cynthia’s redemption, but she is nothing but prey for those with agendas to destroy.
NeNe Leakes will be the first to admit she has used Real Housewives Of Atlanta to her advantage to leverage a pretty spectacular career – and now other reality stars are following suit. In a battle of veteran vs. virgin, NeNe talks how reality TV has changed, while Claudia Jordan reflects on her first season.
“I would like to say I’ve grown,” NeNe says. Of being an influential black woman on TV, she says, “Reality television has been both negative and positive. When our show first started, it was mostly positive. Even though we got in your face, it was never a fist fight,” NeNe recalls. No, not a fist fight – just a wig tug courtesy of She by SheBroke! Or a plonk and a bloop and poke your eyes out, courtesy of NeNe!
