Despite their friendship contract, the relationship between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey seems beyond repair, and rumors of who will return (and who will get axed) next season are running rampant, as they always do at around the reunion episodes. I don't know about y'all, but my head is still spinning!
Kenya Moore brought props for the second year in a row to the RHOA reunion show and for the second year in a row, they did not go over well with her castmates, to say the least. After sticking both a scepter and a bullhorn in Porsha Stewart's face, Porsha had enough and took Kenya to the ground. Prompting her to call 911 and file assault charges against Porsha. But wasn't Kenya provoking Porsha? According to NeNe Leakes that is exactly what she was doing and she took to her website to say exactly how she felt.
While Kenya was was owning the stage with her scepter and bullhorn, everyone, including Porsha, was giggling. Well, no one was laughing when Porsha lost her cool and went after Kenya. I doubt Porsha was laughing either when she was booked for assault.
We are halfway through Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars – and NeNe Leakes is still in the competition. Last week, the Incredible Hulk NeNe busted out of all that spandex and sequins and treatedTony Dovolanilike, well, how she treats other humans – beneath her. NeNe is safe, though, so woohoo for rewarding bad behavior. Or something.
Tony and NeNe take on Salsa this week. NeNe, looking more linebacker than normal, starts in the audience and shimmies up on Gregg on her way to the dance floor. I don’t care for the choreography – it’s more club than salsa – and NeNe’s lemons need wayyyy more support. The highlight? Tony loses his shirt midway through the dance.
"Oooh, hunni here we go! This week we're doing a salsa. It's Party Anthem, so we're doing Nelly's "It's Getting Hot in Here," and you better believe it, we love Nelly," shared NeNe. "Oh and we are shaking it, hunni! I'm sweating, I'm telling you. I've almost got an afro, my hair has curled completely up!"
Let's just get this out of the way right at the beginning: Porsha Stewart did in fact live up to the hype. She dragged Kenya Moore across that Real Housewives of Atlantareunion stage by her hair like she was a battery-operated real live pageant doll. The queen is down – off with her head! I was shocked. I was stupefied. I literally had flashbacks of my childhood [illicit] Dynasty watching days. Alexis Carrington lives again. Hey – there were just as many sequins flying.
Shockingly no one lost a garment – except Cynthia Bailey whose entire boob popped out as she leaped up to avoid the fight. Andy Cohen claims he was trying to stop things, but let's be frank he's less than useless. He was afraid. He was like a little yappy dog barking on the periphery of two big dogs going head to head. Boy – have several seats. Go ask NeNe Leakesto hold you in her lap, stroke your head, and tell you it's OK. Poor Andy – his own monster is turning on him. It's eating him alive.
So that happened. And it was not unprovoked. It was not all together unwarranted, but it was totally unacceptable. And at the very least, we learned that either Kenya has the best weave in the world or we just got confirmation that is real hair.
Following the fight, Andy Cohen will sit-down for a special one-on-one talk with Porsha. Reportedly, this is where Porsha will say good-bye to the show. With rumors circulating that the cast will go on strike if Porsha is fired, resident HBIC NeNe Leakes is speaking out on the matter. "I don't know where that came from. I've never said that. We don't group up together to do much," NeNe tells Essence.
"You know all of us aren't goosing up together to be going to bat for Porsha. We don't collectively do anything." NeNe continues, "I do think she was on the chopping block before she got into the fight. Fighting Kenya did not help her case."
