RHOA

Cynthia Bailey's date with Will

So far this has been a pretty enjoyable season of Real Housewives of Atlanta for Cynthia Bailey. She threw a Cynthia-themed birthday party for herself and she has been going on dates with her new man Will – and the chemistry is undeniable between the two of them.

There’s been zero drama for Cynthia other than what she’s witnessed from the other ladies. Seeing the back and forth between Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak in person without the bleeps censoring the curse words had to be unreal entertainment. Or at least that’s how I would have felt if I was there.

Kim Zolciak Returns To RHOA

Last night, NeNe Leakes hosted a party with a theme that sounded more like a choose your own adventure book. It was girls and gays wearing white who should never forget while eating seafood. We’re not sure what they’re not supposed to forget since NeNe never made that clear. My guess: they’re supposed to remember that NeNe Leakes is the queen of Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

The strangest thing was, this party happened the day after Gregg was released from the hospital for something having to do with an irregular heartbeat, and instead of researching pacemakers, NeNe was researching topless male waiters and choosing themes from the Sheree Whitfield Collection Of Castoff Party Flops. Also, this was after NeNe was late to Gregg’s surgery so she could attend Sheree’s 70’s-70 party.

NeNe goes to hospital

The last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta must have been a rough one for NeNe to relive because of her husband Gregg Leakes and his health problems.

It was heartbreaking watching NeNe in the car on the way to the hospital listening to Gregg struggling on the phone. NeNe opened up about that time period, Gregg’s health today, Cynthia Bailey’s date with Will, and Chateau Sheree vs. Moore Manor.

Instagram Roundup

There is just so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Obviously, health and happiness are high up on the list, but somewhere after the main priorities in life, the dedicated TV viewers are thankful for their favorite reality stars. Aside from spending time with family and devouring delicious foods, there’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by enjoying some reality star photos in the latest edition of Instagram Roundup. It’s also a lot better than indulging in awkward or boring conversation with your least favorite relatives.

There were just so many random (and juicy) things going on this week! Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D was hanging out with former cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Amber Marchese to talk shit about Teresa at a friend’s baby shower. Love & Hip Hop star Joseline Hernandez shared a photo with her and Cynthia Bailey’s ex husband Peter Thomas. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent shared a selfie from church (yes, you read that correctly) and she even made it to Kathy Wakile’s pizza restaurant in New Jersey- if that is not the most random pairing in the world, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, yes I do: Whitney Sudler-Smith at a baby shower with Reese Witherspoon. I have so many questions about that one.

Check out the most interesting photos from the last week in the gallery below!

Phaedra Parks becomes a model

Phaedra Parks is a woman of many trades – from lawyering to funeral director, to aerobics instructor, and now that she’s an ex-Real Housewife, she’s reinventing herself again – this time as a model!

Phaedra has gotten a revenge body since leaving Real Housewives Of Atlanta and with that even phiner booty, she’s signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models to flaunt it. “I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,'” triumphs Phaedra. “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

Cynthia Bailey's date with Will

To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta started off with a bang would be a total lie. Sure, there is a lot of talk about Kenya Moore’s surprise marriage, but everyone who follows Real Housewives in the off-season already knew about that, so it wasn’t at all shocking by the time the first episode aired.

On the bright side, Cynthia Bailey has moved out of that “Will they or won’t they get back together?” phase of her divorce and she is back in the dating pool. It isn’t the most exciting story line at this point, but I can’t help loving Cynthia and rooting for her. Even so, I can’t wait for things to intensify next episode when Kim Zolciak returns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.

Sheree Whitfield party planner drama

I’ll tell you what is about the most disappointing thing that could ever happen on a Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode – that I did not get to experience Sheree Whitfield Vs. Party Planner: The Resurrection. I was all excited for a revival of the infamous “Who gon’ check me boo?” moment (like basically my favorite real Housewives moment ever), and instead I got a lackluster mini-fit of Sheree tearing off her mic and acting like a normal person under stress. Let’s just call this what it is – unacceptable!

See, I depend on Sheree to act like, well, Sheree. Sheree of yore, that is. Like “Budget, what’s that?!” This new evolved, life-coached Sheree, who is essentially your average busy-body after an extra pumpkin spice latte and behaves strangely mature-ish (for her), is a real snooze.

Sheree's wig

Last season Sheree Whitfield finally got real about her marriage to Bob, and this season she continues to confront the painful reality of her ‘truth’ being exposed on Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

“My hope is through sharing this part of my life it can help empower others to face their past, learn from it, and heal from it,” says Sheree. “I want to continue to live in my truth and live my best life.”
