At this point, Kim Zolciak contributes more to Real Housewives of Atlanta by not showing up than a lot of the cast members do when they are actually present. Kim skipping out on the cast trip to Barcelona was a highly talked about topic.
Kim’s frienemy-tuned-enemy NeNe Leakes questioned everything from Kim’s marriage to her health. Porsha Williams mentioned this to Kim while they were on the phone and Kim clapped back with a SCATHING group text about NeNe. The ladies couldn’t keep Kim’s name out of their mouths, but they should not have expected her to show up anyway. Kim claims that she “made sure” the cast trips were not a part of her contract as a “Friend of the Housewives” this season.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were in Barcelona where the most exciting sight they saw were the roaches (errrr… “water bugs”) in NeNe Leakes bathroom. Hey, I guess it beats some lame sightseeing tour, right?! This was Cynthia Bailey‘s fault – they were supposed to be visiting a church but their wonderful hostess hauled them all the way there only to discover it was closed. So they had to make their own entertainment, and that is never a good thing.
So, Barcelona: beautiful weather, gorgeous phallic buildings, stunning culture… yet all the same drama. You can take the girls out of Atlanta, but you can’t take the Atlanta out of the girls. From the moment the women land on Spanish soil, there is bickering and shadiness.
NeNe Leakes is keeping things shady and we love her for it. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared some thoughts on Cynthia Bailey‘s taste, Kenya Moore skipping the trip to Spain and she even weighs in Cynthia and Peter and the possibility of them reuniting.
NeNe was asked if she was worried about Cynthia planning the trip when she was talking about the budget. In true NeNe style, she responded: “I was never worried about Cynthia planning the trip! She has good taste, but we like different things. I always need my sleep accommodations to be really nice, clean, and comfortable when traveling.”
Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been very suspicious of Cynthia Bailey’s new man Will Jones from the get-go. Cynthia kept saying that he was “too good to be true” and she never expected to find someone so soon after her divorce from Peter Thomas. Everyone else viewed him as an opportunist looking to cash in on Cynthia’s notoriety as a Real Housewife.
Kandi Burrusspointed out that he was on reality TV dating shows. The new girl Eva Marcillesays she met Will’s GIRLFRIEND and the timeline doesn’t add up based on what Will said to Cynthia earlier in that episode. Even Porsha Williams had some tea to spill about Cynthia’s man. On the show, Cynthia was visibly upset as she was caught between feeling like a fool in public and looking for the best in a guy that she likes. Nevertheless, she has never adamantly defended Will. Instead, she has listened to everyone’s input and just “hoped” that they were wrong. I figured that she was just trying to keep a story line under wraps and she would speak out later, but maybe she’s not defending Will because they are not together these days. Or at least that’s what their recent Instagram posts convey.
Almost everything Kenya Moore says and does is criticized. This is expected since she has been a polarizing character ever since her first episode on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Aside from people hating on Kenya, a lot of viewers (and some of her costars) have questioned her authenticity and accused her of faking story lines for the show. Over and over again.
During the last episode, Kenya brought her cousin in to take a phone call about her pregnancy test which ended up being inconclusive. Maybe it was just some spotty editing, but haters came for Kenya for creating a false story line after she shared that moment on television.
On this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak ruffled feathers (as usual) when she expressed her desire to bring husband Kroy Biermann along on a girls trip. Kim has more than a few words for her co-stars regarding her priorities and their jealousy of her marriage.
Kim is convinced that her co-stars rip on her relationship with Kroy because they’re jealous of a healthy and happy marriage. She blogged that she wasn’t shocked to see the girls resisting Kroy tagging along on the trip, “I wasn’t surprised at all! Some of these same girls complain that Kroy drops me off or picks me up from events. It’s bizarre. You would think that they would support my healthy, happy marriage, but then again they don’t have that, so why would they? It’s evident that they are envious of mine.”
Cynthia feels bad that what was supposed to be a party all about celebrating Kandi, became dominated by the drama over Will. “I was very surprised when Porsha approached me about Will. She had expressed to me before that her friend knows Will and that he is a nice guy. From being approached by Eva about Will, being on my first date publicly with Will, Will meeting all the girls, me not expecting Peter to be at the party, and Peter and I not speaking at the party, it was a lot of me when the evening was supposed to be about Kandi! After Porsha’s bomb, I was done. I just fell apart.”
