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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Charmstar 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.
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 Leakesdressed 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 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“
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 Zolciakreleased 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.
