Thanks to Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes‘ drama, it’s easy to forget that there are actually other people on Real Housewives of Atlanta. There are six full-time cast members and a plethora of side players, but when NeNe and Kim are going at it, there’s just nothing else worth paying attention to.
A few episodes ago, Cynthia Bailey’s kind-of-sort-of relationship with Will Jones was a hot topic of conversation. Normally Twitter would have been blowing up after that awkward kiss in the car, but with everything going on with Kim that’s just child’s play and was very easy to look over.
I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.
Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.
There may be six women holding up peaches during the Real Housewives of Atlanta opening credits, but not all of them are bringing something to the table. Kim Zolciak isn’t even a full-time cast member and her daughter Brielle Biermann hasn’t even appeared on camera this season, yet the two of them have instigated the most significant drama – by far.
Eva Marcille joined the Real Housewives of Atlanta very late in the game. She didn’t show up on the scene until the middle of the show’s current season. This was around the same time that Kenya Moore decided to dip out on the cast trip to Spain after spending the whole season concealing her super private marriage. Coincidence? I think not.
Since Kenya is not down to share much of her reality on a reality show, there have been rampant rumors that Eva was brought on the show to phase out Kenya. We haven’t really seen Eva and Kenya interact this season, since Kenya skipped the Spain trip, and has been absent for a majority of season amid rumors that she has been uncooperative with production. So why does Eva say that Kenya is “coming for” her when they barely know each other? Maybe Kenya is feeling threatened by the new girl stealing her full-time status on the show?
I cannot be more excited for the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. Specifically, I just want to see Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes going at it over bugs, health problems, and handicap parking spaces. Sure, there has been other drama this season, but a NeNe vs. Kim showdown is classic RHOA. I am more than ready for it.
Kim got me even more pumped up for the reunion episodes when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live. She discussed that infamous “roach” video, Kroy Biermann‘s chauffeur services, and even some reunion conspiracy theories.
Last week, Bravo released the reunion seating chart, which showed Kenya in the last seat on a the sofa – a place she’s never previously occupied courtesy of her s#*t-starting ways. Kenya’s peach is reportedly about to be smashed over her refusal to film for most of the season and her secret marriage (including her allegedly difficult to deal with husband). However, sources reveal that on the couches Kenya whipped out the trump card by announcing that she’s finally pregnant and is due before the end of the year. Kenya’s husband Marc also may make an appearance.
NeNe is officially in a twitter war (and every other kind of war) with Kim Zolciak and Brielle Biermann. It’s gone beyond nasty into libel territory and Orkin definitely needs to exterminate this mess. It’s actually making me think less of two women, whom I’ve never managed to muster a decent opinion of in the first place. This is the magic of Bravo: nasty people behaving more badly.
