First, NeNe Leakes waltzes out wearing what can only be described a costume from the adult-entertainment version of Frozen. I mean, it was the ice queen cometh, although there is nothing icy about NeNe who can neither keep her comments nor her anger to herself.
NeNe came back to defend her turf, since she owns this show and couldn’t leave her “baby” to a group of teenagers who can’t do CPR. Andy Cohen seems to support this idea, even ifKandi Burruss is making the stank face to end all stank faces. Speaking of babies, Kandi has to leave to go pump – and the women all gasp over how phenomenal she looks post-baby (she does!).
Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey’s relationship has seemed to be on the rocks for a while now, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars are taking baby steps toward divorce. The first step was showing the turbulence in their marriage this season (starting off with that “cheating video” hitting the press just as filming for RHOA started. The second step was admitting things weren’t perfect and spending longer chunks of time apart. Now we’re on to step three. Step three included admitting that things are, in fact, very rough and that discussions are being had about the possibility of calling it quits. Step four will likely wait until RHOA resumes filming. Just a hunch.
On the status of her relationship with husband Peter Thomas: “Things are not great with Peter and I. At this time, I’m just taking time for myself to just try to figure it out.”
At the reunion, Phaedra Parks made it be known that she did not appreciate Kandi – or anyone else for that matter – talking about whether or not her boys, Ayden and Dylan, should visit Apollo Nida in prison. About how that made her feel, Kandi said, “I don’t feel anything. I’m tired of being asked about it.”
She acts a fool. She sings. She dances. She bloops. NeNe Leakes may have risen to fame on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she didn’t follow the normal housewives branding with fruity alcoholic beverages and cookbooks. The Neenster is one of the few reality stars (who wasn’t famous before her reality show) who has managed to crossover into acting…and not just in Sharknado movies! She’s guest starred on Glee. She’s starred in a short-lived sitcom. She’s acted on Broadway (twice!!!). What’s next?
Well apparently, stand-up comedy. NeNe is taking her act on the road with her “So Nasty, So Rude” tour. I guess “Close Your Legs to Married Men….WIG!” tour was too much to fit on the flyer?
With just one more episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion left to go, we are saying goodbye to Kim Fields. Kim confirmed this week past week that she won’t be returning for a second season of the reality show. Rumor has it that it wasn’t the cast that drove her away, but poor treatment by Bravo?!
Page Six reported that Kim is floored over the positive way she’s being treated over at ABC on Dancing with the Stars because things were reportedly not so good on RHOA. “They treated her awful. Once she got a taste of how one should be treated, and that would be how ABC is treating her, she’s like, ‘Screw this s–t, man!’ She’s very happy on ‘Dancing,’ doing well.”
“The finale was filmed some months ago – that’s not real time. At the finale, when that was filmed, we were in a better place. I will say now that Peter and I are not in a great place,” Cynthia admitted on Amy Phillips‘ SiriusXM show Reality Checked. “We are not in a great place.”
Porsha compliments Andy on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, “You were on fire. Your follow-up questions were shady as hell.” Speaking of shade, how about Porsha’s digs at Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey?! Does Porsha think Cynthia knows the truth about Peter? “I don’t know what Cynthia knows,” she says. “All I know is that if she’s happy, I’m happy for her. She is the one who is married to him. They seem to be doing well today. Good luck, guys.”
