Cynthia Bailey

Did Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes forget that they are filming a reality show? I find that hard to believe, but it’s the only (semi-)plausible explanation for that last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode.

Cynthia told Porsha Williams to tell her if she heard anything else about her boo Will Jones, yet she got offended when Porsha did just that. Then, NeNe decided she and Cynthia should get the best rooms and said “the older girls need to go up” and the “middle age” girls need to downgrade their rooms. Then she got offended when Kandi Burruss conveyed the same exact message that she did but she used the word “elder” instead. NeNe continued to insist that she wasn’t talking about age even though that was what she was talking about.

NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey Weigh In On Roachgate

On this week’s After Show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta weigh in on the escalating beef between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. A few of the show’s stars, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe and Kim all throw their two cents in on roachgate and Kim’s many health issues.

NeNe shared, “Listen, I was just having a good time. I mean, damn, it’s a wonder you’re still walking.” She added, “When I said Kim had cancer, thyroid, open heart surgery…these are all the things she’s said she had. Did you see me in the world saying I had roaches?”

Kim Zolciak's Revenge

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.

Porsha & Shamea in Barcelona

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 & Cynthia

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.”

Instagram Roundup: Erika Jayne, Kristin Cavallari, Shannon Beador, Briana DeJesus, & More!

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.

Southern Charm alum Landon Clements shared a Valentine’s Day photo with former Bachelor lead Ben Flajnik at a winery. Was this a date? A friend date? A reach for attention? Or something else entirely? Porsha Williams shared a photo with giant bouquet of flowers with a caption about a secret admirer.

Cynthia & Will

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 Burruss pointed out that he was on reality TV dating shows. The new girl Eva Marcille says 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.

Kenya shops for Marc

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.
