The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been very suspicious of Cynthia Bailey’s new man Will Jones from the get-go. Cynthia kept saying that he was “too good to be true” and she never expected to find someone so soon after her divorce from Peter Thomas. Everyone else viewed him as an opportunist looking to cash in on Cynthia’s notoriety as a Real Housewife.
Kandi Burrusspointed out that he was on reality TV dating shows. The new girl Eva Marcillesays she met Will’s GIRLFRIEND and the timeline doesn’t add up based on what Will said to Cynthia earlier in that episode. Even Porsha Williams had some tea to spill about Cynthia’s man. On the show, Cynthia was visibly upset as she was caught between feeling like a fool in public and looking for the best in a guy that she likes. Nevertheless, she has never adamantly defended Will. Instead, she has listened to everyone’s input and just “hoped” that they were wrong. I figured that she was just trying to keep a story line under wraps and she would speak out later, but maybe she’s not defending Will because they are not together these days. Or at least that’s what their recent Instagram posts convey.
It looks like things really start heating up on Real Housewives of Atlanta during the next episode when Kim Zolciak goes off on NeNe Leakes about roaches and handicap parking. Other than Kim’s explosive guest appearances, this has been a slow-moving season so far.
Will insists that he’s not sure where this gossip comes from on Eva‘s part since their meeting was brief, “That completely threw me off because when I first met [Eva], I only met her for like 10 minutes and the rest of the time was with her now-fiancé talking about the things I wanted to do for the kids in Chicago because he used to be a prosecutor in Chicago.”
This week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured a lavish party honoring Kandi Burruss’Essence magazine cover, but it was Cynthia Bailey’s new beau who got the most screen time. To be honest, don’t we all think that’s his goal? Fifty Cynt deserves the best, so this guy Will Jones had better be on the up and up. People don’t get as riled up as he did over a minor rumor or simple misunderstanding. He clearly got caught in a lie. Perhaps he didn’t want to go into the gory details with Cynthia if the relationship with this other chick ended badly. Maybe he didn’t think it was as serious as it appeared to newbie Eva Marcille. In any event, his reaction would have me more concerned about whether he’s boyfriend material as opposed to whether he may have been seeing someone when he first met Cynthia. Am I right?
But, I digress (shocking, I know!). This post isn’t about Will Jones. It’s about the most underrated RHOA character and his amazing ability to throw shade. Don Juan was on point with dig at Porsha Williams. She needs to quit pretending like she had no involvement in those horrific allegations against Kandi and give the woman some space. She is forcing the issue, and it is only making things more awkward. Thankfully, it’s Don Juan to the rescue!
We only got to see a little bit of Eva Marcille during her first Real Housewives of Atlantaepisode, but she definitely delivered. She isn’t a full-time Housewife, but so far it looks like she has what it takes to hold up a peach during the opening credits next season.
She spilled some major tea about Cynthia Bailey’snew man Will Jones introducing her to someone that he labeled as a “girlfriend” during a period that overlapped with his time with Cynthia. On top of that, his version of the story changed multiple times during that episode.
Do the women who are “Friends of the Housewives” have to meet an insult quota in order to earn their paychecks? It sure seems that way whenever Kim Zolciak appears on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
During the last episode alone, Kim came for Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, and even the “medium” Mbele. Most of that isn’t really surprising since this is Kim we’re talking about, but it felt like a very random dig when she told Cynthia to shut up and look pretty. Even weirder than that comment, Cynthia actually hugged her after that.
It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
