I was actually really pleased by last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta. In addition to the usual drama and bickering, all the ladies came together to film a PSA produced by Kenya Moore about domestic violence. It was thoughtful, emotional, and really prescient – so here’s to RHOA setting a good example for once! Of course we also had to squeeze in some necessary nonsense.
It’s been THREE long weeks since we’ve checked in on our peaches. They went to San Fran, that ended in disaster, and now the disasters have been toted back to Atlanta in borrowed and fake Birkins and trudged on by Jimmy Choos.
Additionally, Sheree is living through the aftermath of last year’s bombshell that her ex-husband Bob Whitfield abused her. Since hiring a life coach, Sheree seems to be opening up about the most private aspects of her life. And she claims that talking to her children about the abuse on camera was tough, but necessary. “Having the conversation about the unhealthy relationship between me and their dad was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do! I love my kids with everything I am and have always chosen to protect them. I never wanted them to look at me as damaged, broken, or less than the strong, loving, fun, supportive mom that they know.”
Given the incessant side-eyeing Kenya Moore’s received over her “secret” nuptials to restauranteur Marc Daly, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star thinks she has something to prove. And apparently, prove it she will – in a second wedding to Marc slated for 2018! Yup. Kenya will be technically renewing her vows only one year into the marriage. It’s a new Housewives record, people! (And we all know how well multiple weddings/vow renewals go for our beloved Bravolebrities. See: Shannon Beador.)
Kenya shares her appreciation for her phantom husband during the tough time of her grandmother’s passing. She reflects, “It was just a few weeks since Marc actually met my grandmother in Detroit and she smiled so big when she met him. I knew she was happy that I finally had someone to share my life with.”
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta was all about love. Sweet, blessed, shady, soul mate from another realm love. Lord these ladies need a therapist. Call Dr. Jeff back in!
It was another NeNe Leakes-free episode because apparently she is in LA and Bravo cameras are only permitted there if they’re filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which premieres tomorrow night). What are our thoughts on NeNe getting to participate like every other episode? Like, she misses half the practices but she still gets to play in the all-star games? Hmm. Well, I guess she did start the team!
First up, Sheree Whitfield meets Porsha Williams at an extremely expensive housing fixtures store run by Prince William’s long-lost brother. Sheree pretends she’s buying $8,000 doors for the “spa” she is installing in her basement, but we all know that’s some BS. When life gives you plumbing leaks, make a sauna! Porsha, to her credit, played along nicely that Sheree could actually afford any of this stuff since she was there for the gossip about Sheree’s bae and the mess that happened in San Fran when Cynthia Baileyfled the winery.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlantamost of the ladies shocked me by putting on their big girl panties and behaving like actual adults. It was like visiting the Twilight Zone with the elegant, sophisticated ladies of Sheree Whitfield‘s dreams.
Porsha Williams finally learned the meaning of the word “accountability” and Cynthia Bailey realized if there’s one thing she discovered in her disastrous co-dependency with NeNe Leakes it’s to honor the friend contracts of her heart. Also, Marlo Hampton may have the best wardrobe, but she and her cat eye glasses are as messy as a litter box and need to be dumped!
You know what I despise about Housewives, how they’ll be in a gorgeous restaurant, all dressed up, then ruin it before the food even arrives! NeNe thinks Porsha deserves to be punished for what she did to NeNeKandi Burruss. And that punishment is THE DOOR IS CLOSED.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans can rejoice! It seems like we are (finally) in an era when there isn’t a rivalry between Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor.
The back and forth barbs between Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield about baseboards, light fixtures, and unfinished basements dragged on for way too long. Aside from putting the mansion battle behind them, it actually seems like the two RHOA costars on good terms. Sure, they’re still throwing shade, but the tension between has definitely thinned out.
Of course, Kandi Burruss usually tries to stay out of the fray when it comes to the ladies’ drama, but thanks to a nasty rumor last year started by Phaedra Parks and perpetuated by Porsha Williams, she hasn’t succeeded as much as she’d like. This season, with Phaedra gone, Kandi is doing her best to avoid Porsha without making the other women uncomfortable. However, this week, NeNe came for Porsha and stood up for Kandi all in the same screaming match.
