This weekend the reality stars flocked to New Orleans for the 2017 ESSENCE Festival. Among the reality celebrities photographed there: Kenya Moore (marriage looks good on her), Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and others. Rumor has it that Matt Jordan even made an appearance, which is interesting since Kenya has a restraining order against him!
Yandy Smith was also in New Orleans, to attend the screening of the new movie Girls Trip.
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted at LAX while sister Kendall Jenner was in Paris with Bella Hadid.
It’s always interesting when Housewives from different cities are in the same place and this just seems like the most random grouping of ladies. I would love to see some videos of the women reading some dramatic monologue during their performances. Or better yet some footage of the Housewives hanging out between shows. Now that would be a show worth watching.
It was unclear whether or not Kandi Burruss would want to be on Real Housewives of Atlanta again after everything she went through last season. Not only did she confirm that she will be back on the show, but Kandi is actually filming another reality series for Bravo at the same time.
The other show is a “docuseries” with her band mates from the recently reunited Xscape. It seems like everything is going perfectly for Kandi, but she has teased some craziness for the upcoming RHOAseason.
As time goes by, Kenya Moore shares more details about her surprise wedding to Marc Daly. As expected, she’s really milking this for all that she can by releasing one piece of information at a time. This wedding alone has produced so many stories so I can’t even imagine how she’s going to stretch this out for a Real Housewives of Atlanta story line. It’s just so shocking that she didn’t actually film the wedding for the show. I would have bet anything that she would be all about that idea.
I don’t know if she was genuinely trying to keep this private or if she’s just “keeping it private” so she can share little bits and pieces to create more stories for the media. Truthfully, I suspect the latter, but here I am eating it all up and reading every bit of news that pops up. You got me hooked on this story, Kenya. SMH, me.
Following in the footsteps of reality stars that got married before her, I assumed that Kenya Moore would eventually renew her wedding vows, especially since the Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras did not capture her wedding the first time around. It turns out that Kenya and Marc Dalydo plan to get married again, but they are waiting until next June to do so.
That’s right. As in June 2018, which I’m pretty sure still does not overlap with RHOA filming. I’m surprised that her vow renewal will not be for the show, but maybe she’ll end up getting her own wedding special like Kandi Burruss, Tamra Judge, and NeNe Leakes did. Whoever is running that show has to be pretty annoyed that Kenya let a potentially major story line happen away from the show, so I guess we will see what happens. In the mean time, Kenya is just like any other newlywed gushing about her wedding and her relationship.
Unfortunately, the recently disgraced Phaedra Parks will be back on the TV pretty soon. Fortunately, she will be with her adorable son Ayden- someone I will miss on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nope, they’re not returning to reality TV and I assume their recent appearance was taped before the now-infamous RHOAreunion revelation.
Phaedra and her smart, adorable son will be on a game show on USA Network called Big Star Little Star, reminding us of the one reason we would want Phaedra back on RHOA: her kids.
