Last night we learned a few important lessons, mostly that we should never ever let the Real Housewives of any ilk attempt the outdoors. Like nice try Phaedra Parks, but just like your maxi dress, the Real Housewives aren’t a right fit for tents.
Getting out of Atlanta is itself a travail after Porsha Williams has surprise invited her sister Lauren to act as a human security blanket against Porsha’s highly tuned rage. While Porsha and Kenya Moore argue about the merits of their communication styles, Prophet Parks interjects commanding them to STOP and to remember they are all strong personalities who act out. Constantly.
Phaedra Parks ruffled a few feathers during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live, dropping shady comments about the status of Apollo Nida’s engagement, claiming to not give one fig about the state of her friendship with Kandi Burrus and more.
Andy plays clips of NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore talking about Phaedra on past appearances of WWHL. Phaedra says, “It doesn’t really matter to me. But the good thing is when you’re in everybody’s mouth that must mean you’re doing something right girl.”
The ladies can’t even get into the woods before fighting erupts over Porsha Williams‘ doctor’s note saying she needs to have a security blanket by having her sister Lauren come on the trip. Things go from bad to worse when the women learn the first night of the trip will be spent roughing it in tents.
Judge me if you must but I have to keep it real when I admit that I’ve seen every single Real Housewives episode multiple times. With that said, I cannot help favoring some story lines over others – the Real Housewives story lines that got dragged out way longer than they ever should have.
Some of these plot lines were juicy at first, but just got beat to the ground. Then there are other things that happened that none of us cared about, yet they got dragged out for two or more seasons. Either way, there are plenty of story lines that did more than outstay their welcome.
It would take A LOT to get me to stop watching Real Housewives shows. Still, I don’t think that they are all as good as they used to be. One show that makes me really miss its original cast and plot lines is Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes, and Kim Zolciak’s friendships were straight up iconic. Thankfully, Sheree is back on RHOA, but what about NeNe and Kim? Will they return? It seems the powers-that-be are hoping they will!
Please. Please. Please. We need the original trio back together to knock down the inflated egos of the current cast members. Let’s make this show iconic again.
NeNe, Kim, and Sheree had so many ups and downs that there was honestly no need to have anyone else in the cast. With that said, it’s crazy that they all seem to be over all of the past drama. It was surprising last season on RHOA when NeNe crashed the group vacation and got along perfectly with former frienemy Sheree and it’s also crazy how Sheree and Kim were able to put their issues behind them and actually be friends again.
Considering that the Atlanta Falcons were playing in the big game, it’s not super surprising that the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars turned up in Houston to support the team. NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey were back on their best friend game at Super Bowl events together and Porsha Williams even took part in a charity basketball game.
I’m confused by why it was a charity basketball game and not a game of touch football, but it’s philanthropy, so I’m not going to question it further. Even though the Falcons lost, they at had a lot of hometown support from the RHOAladies.
