Last night we learned a few important lessons, mostly that we should never ever let the Real Housewives of any ilk attempt the outdoors. Like nice try Phaedra Parks, but just like your maxi dress, the Real Housewives aren’t a right fit for tents.
Getting out of Atlanta is itself a travail after Porsha Williams has surprise invited her sister Lauren to act as a human security blanket against Porsha’s highly tuned rage. While Porsha and Kenya Moore argue about the merits of their communication styles, Prophet Parks interjects commanding them to STOP and to remember they are all strong personalities who act out. Constantly.
Judge me if you must but I have to keep it real when I admit that I’ve seen every single Real Housewives episode multiple times. With that said, I cannot help favoring some story lines over others – the Real Housewives story lines that got dragged out way longer than they ever should have.
Some of these plot lines were juicy at first, but just got beat to the ground. Then there are other things that happened that none of us cared about, yet they got dragged out for two or more seasons. Either way, there are plenty of story lines that did more than outstay their welcome.
It would take A LOT to get me to stop watching Real Housewives shows. Still, I don’t think that they are all as good as they used to be. One show that makes me really miss its original cast and plot lines is Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes, and Kim Zolciak’s friendships were straight up iconic. Thankfully, Sheree is back on RHOA, but what about NeNe and Kim? Will they return? It seems the powers-that-be are hoping they will!
Please. Please. Please. We need the original trio back together to knock down the inflated egos of the current cast members. Let’s make this show iconic again.
NeNe, Kim, and Sheree had so many ups and downs that there was honestly no need to have anyone else in the cast. With that said, it’s crazy that they all seem to be over all of the past drama. It was surprising last season on RHOA when NeNe crashed the group vacation and got along perfectly with former frienemy Sheree and it’s also crazy how Sheree and Kim were able to put their issues behind them and actually be friends again.
We’ve been ranking all the Real Housewives from every season, every franchise and its finally down to the final few. The queens of Bravo, if you will. Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of our ranking.
What separates a good Housewife from a great one? For me, it’s the longevity of their dramas. Will their actions or comments forever define a franchise as Teresa Giudice‘s table flip did for New Jersey, or NeNe Leakes‘ “Close your legs to married men, Wig!” on Atlanta? A great Housewife doesn’t necessarily have to be likable, but she does have to be memorable, and defining. When you think of a particular show which Housewife comes to mind.
When you grow up with a mom who’s made her entire fortune on the promise of reality TV exposure and paychecks, I guess it’s only natural to follow in her footsteps. Even if those footsteps map out a road to early and questionable plastic surgeries, partially-nude selfies, and fame-chasing! Brielle Biermann, Don’t Be Tardy star and daughter of Real Housewives Of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciack-Biermann, is no exception.
Brielle and boyfriend Michael Kopech, a White Sox pitching prospect, recently visited the windy city – and Brielle fell in love! With Chicago, that is. She posted the above pic, captioning it “obsessed with you and chicago.” So, what’s the next natural step? Requesting a Real Housewives of her very own!
