Lines have been drawn and wigs have been adjusted on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta – and we’re still at the starting line! Already, Cynthia Bailey is making no bones about who she supports in the Kim Zolciak versus Kenya Moore feud that will be raging all season long. She’s #TeamTwirl all the way, and she says so in her blog this week.
Cynthia admits that both Kim and Kenya said awful things to each other at NeNe Leakes’ party, but claims Kim was ultimately in the wrong for questioning Kenya’s marriage. “Although both ladies said some horrible things about each other during their argument, I honestly feel like Kim came into Casa Leakes coming for Kenya, and Kenya did not send for her! I think there would have been less drama had Kim been tardy for this party, LOL!”
What is it with these ladies on Real Housewives Of Atlanta? NeNe Leakes‘ husband Gregg is having serious health problems, and Kenya Moore‘s grandmother – who raised her! – just died, yet they’re all OK, let’s ditch everything to go party in San Francisco because Sheree Whitfield‘s life coach decided she needs some ME TIME. So, let Sheree take that ME without YOU time – y’all have other things going on!
So Sheree’s ‘doctor’s note’ means she decided to become a life coach herself and stage a rejuvenation from drama bonding trip. Remember how well that worked for Phaedra Parks?! Excuse me, but didn’t NeNe and Kenya actually hate Sheree like 15 minutes ago? Also, why San Francisco? Is there some secret prisoner’s girlfriend seminar happening?
And so it begins. The feud between Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kenya Moore is officially off to the races! The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates have no love for one another, to be sure, and in her blog this week Kim explains her specific reasons for detesting Kenya. She also claims that being an “OG” of the show gives her a different perspective than most, and being back in the drama “felt like 2007 all over again.”
Clearing up matters on when she met Sheree Whitfield, Kim says, “I met Shereé 14 or 15 years ago through NeNe. NeNe and I went out for the night and ran into Shereé, and the rest is history — we’ve been friends since.” This stands in contrast to NeNe Leakes’ statement that Kim and Sheree only met during season one of filming RHOA. And speaking of feuds – check out NeNe and Kim’s twitter wars on this subject (and more) if you really want to roll around in the mud!
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.
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.
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.
To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlantastarted 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 Housewivesin 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 Zolciakreturns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.
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.
