Nene Leakes

NeNe

When NeNe Leakes and Marlo Hampton initially went from being close friends to enemies on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it really didn’t seem like there was a chance that they could restore their relationship. Never say never, though. NeNe and Marlo have had each other’s backs for all of Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10.

That’s why it’s interesting that Kenya Moore, one of Marlo’s enemies and former friends, chose the reunion show to reveal that Marlo attempted to black mail NeNe. Kenya claimed that Marlo got with John after NeNe did and took photos of their phone conversations when he was drunk at her place. Marlo also said that John paid for her Neiman Marcus bill. That’s a pretty damning accusation- that neither NeNe nor Marlo has denied. Instead, NeNe is just talking about how solid their relationship is now and insisting on leaving the past in the past. A lack of denial might as well be a confirmation, especially in this case.

NeNe Leakes On Her Reunion Confrontation With Kim Zolciak: “I Just Hate Seeing Myself Like That”

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion delivered, but I can’t help looking ahead to that NeNe Leakes vs. Kim Zolciak confrontation. I actually wish that they had a whole episode dedicated to Kim and NeNe’s exchange of insults. Is it Sunday night yet? I am so ready.

NeNe continued to shade Kim and threw some additional digs toward Kim’s girl Sheree Whitfield when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night.

Kandi confronts Kim

It seemed like Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak were on the way to restoring their friendship after they hashed out their differences on Season 10 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi made it clear that is not happening when she came for the mother of six in an epic Instagram rant.

Kim has been making guest appearances this season, collecting checks, and skipping out on all of the cast trips. Kim picking and choosing which events she wants to take part in did not sit well with the ladies. On top of that, Kim constantly brags about having her own show (Don’t Be Tardy) on the network and that doesn’t need to be a part of the ensemble cast on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi completely destroyed Kim for that constant dig in a fact-filled Instagram post.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion Part 1 Recap: Dried Bones

The first part of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta was pretty tame by comparison to what we’ve come to expect. I mean the only things that happened were a pregnancy announcement, blackmail revelation, and your mama jokes. Low-key, right?!

The most important thing about any reunion are obviously the outfits. Apparently if you are a Real Housewives Of Atlanta star the reunion is your equivalent of the Academy Awards. But all the stylists are busy and the only gowns left are the ones no one wants to wear.

What we really must discuss is Porsha Williams‘s crown. Umm… She’s elevated from Princess of THOTlandia (where one’s crowing achievement is twerking in hot pants) to Queen of Delusion. Although she claims to be the Goddess of Good Thoughts or something – good thoughts except when she’s calling Kandi Burruss “Victim Victoria,” Goddess Of Never Letting Go.

Instagram Roundup: Tom Sandoval Tinsley Mortimer, Shep Rose, JWOWW, Karen Huger, & More

With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.

NeNe & Gregg

In essence, Season 10 of Real Housewives of Atlanta was brought to you in part by Snapchat, or at least that’s what it should say somewhere in the credits of each episode. The video that Kim Zolciak’s daughter Brielle Biermann took of herself in the mirror at NeNe Leakes’ house, changed the course of the season.

Kim saved it in her archives and unleashed on NeNe, accusing her having a roach-infested home. NeNe fired back with accusation of racism aimed at both Kim and Brielle. Roachgate took over the season and that’s why I thought it was hysterical when NeNe and her husband Gregg Leakes dressed as an exterminator and roach for their Halloween costumes. I laughed, Kim’s girl Sheree Whitfield even laughed, but Kim did not find it funny. At all.

NeNe Leakes discusses Gregg's health

NeNe Leakes won this season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta for me when she turned up at Eva Marcille‘s Halloween party dressed as an exterminator with her bug wand pointed directly at Kim Zolciak.

NeNe has no regrets and had no fears about what reaction she might generate. “My costume was my favorite, and it was so fitting, considering that it was all Kim wished everyone would believe!” NeNe scoffs. “Kim is a joke every time I see her. I’m never worried about a hater that stays sipping haterade! out of a Solo cup

NeNe & Gregg

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members are known for their superior shade throwing abilities, except for Cynthia Bailey, who is known for being the nice and normal one in the cast. Sure, she says some funny things once in a while, but she’s never the one live tweeters are mentioning the most or the subject of memes. Every Housewives show has that one relatable person to round out the cast and Cynthia is that person- plus the fierce fashion and variety of hair and makeup combinations.

That’s why it’s so surprising that Cynthia is actually the one who came up with the idea for NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg Leakes to dress up as an exterminator and a roach for Halloween. After Kim Zolciak released a video of a bug in NeNe’s bathroom and accused her of having a roach-infested mansion. NeNe turned the scandal into a joke and ended up owning the situation, but it was actually Cynthia who helped her make such a clutch move.
