Kenya Moore’s return last week on The Real Housewives of Atlanta was incredible. She never should have left and now she’s back and holding her rightful peach. The first episode was very BABY heavy, but the drama is coming. Seeing Porsha Williams and Kenya finally become friends is the greatest thing to ever happen to Atlanta. IT’S ABOUT TIME.
One thing that was crazy during the premiere was the absence of Nene Leakes. We now know the reason why, but it was still weird not seeing her. Nene’s feud with Kenya is a big selling point of this season, so hopefully, we see some of that soon. The first tension of the season is already brewing between Kenya and model Eva Marcille. Was it weird that Eva didn’t want her baby around Kenya? KINDA, but that’s classic Atlanta shade.
The aftermath of the Barbie party is about to set up so much drama for the season. I’m living for Kenya and Porsha’s taglines though. Slay my soul. Nene’s is blah. Give us something better than that if you want to claim the title of juiciest peach.
Kenya and Porsha are in a good place right now, so she was upfront right away. What’s wrong with that? Why would Cynthia, Eva, and Kandi want to drag that out?
Also, it’s not shocking that Porsha would suspect Kandi to be involved. Kandi’s camp has a history of being involved in sketchy moments.
Porsha confronts Kandi and Cynthia about waiting to tell her about Dennis McKinley’s rumored lover. Cynthia asks if Porsha thinks they can work it out, and Kandi wonders if they can get past cheating. That tells all about Kandi and Todd Tucker’s marriage!
Kandi speculates the blog rumors about Dennis are true, but Porsha’s giving them nothing. Porsha is fighting for her family right now and doesn’t want to be fodder for hot gossip. Porsha wants her daughter to have her father in her life, which gives me such respect for her.
She reveals that Dennis asked for the ring back which is a bold move. YOU did the alleged cheating. Kandi doesn’t want this to take over Porsha’s life, so it’s good to see genuine care there. What a long way these two have come from the Season 9 reunion!
Eva’s still filling in for Porsha at her job, and this maternity leave seems like it’s taking forever. Is Porsha ever coming back to work? Porsha needs to go back to work because it might help distract from the Dennis drama.

Cynthia stirs the pot by telling Eva about the topic of conversation after she left the Barbie event. Eva says to let it go because she isn’t here for their drama this season.
Cynthia invites Eva to join her shopping for a Pride event in NYC, which’ll be fun. They’re both gorgeous beyond belief. Two iconic models! If Kenya shows up to Pride, things might go south for Eva.
Kenya calls Marc Daly, and so far things seem to be alright between them. It’s sad to know that their marriage is nearing the end of the road. Kenya looks so happy finally becoming a mother.
This is all she’s ever wanted, and I’m thrilled for her. She discusses picking her battles with Marc, which is a good idea. The marriage is still fairly new, and it’s not worth it to constantly fight. A LOT of foreshadowing with Kenya and her marriage already this season.

Cynthia’s daughter Noelle Robinson is experiencing a lot of anxiety at college, but her mom is loving life. Things are going great with Mike Hill. This is the first time Noelle has seen her mother in love.
She cites Peter Thomas as an example of what not to be like in a relationship. TRUE THOUGH. Move on from that old man!
Cynthia’s daughter confesses that she likes both guys and girls at college. It’s good that Cynthia loves and supports her daughter no matter what. A lot of parents don’t provide that for their children so kudos to Ms. Bailey.
Kandi meets up with Marlo Hampton at an indoor trampoline park for some family fun. It’s super weird seeing Marlo in a family environment.

She’s taken in a lot of her nephews, and this is an entirely new side of her. All we ever see of Marlo is messiness and shady moments. This is so refreshing.
Kandi says that NeNe reached out to her and wants to move forward. That’s good because NeNe had such an attitude with everyone last season.
They discuss the closet incident from last season, and Kandi sort of blames Marlo for that. Hopefully, NeNe can rejoin Real Housewives of Atlanta soon and start to make amends. I doubt it, but anything’s possible.
Porsha hangs out with Shamea Morton, and it’s crazy how different their lives are now. Not much twerking going on these days!
She tells Shamea that she and Dennis had a lot to drink the night before and hooked up. Does this mean things are better?
It’s possible Porsha might be pregnant which is the last thing that relationship needs. Porsha’s confused now about the different signals being sent in the relationship. Tell Dennis THE DOOR IS CLOSED and move on!
She doesn’t think Dennis would cheat again, but she’s conflicted about what to do. You got the baby. Now, do like Kenya and call that off!
Kenya has no idea how to operate her new car, and it’s hilarious. Read the manual honey. Kenya is so shady, and I love it.
She goes to a crystal healing store with Cynthia to get stuff to fix her energy. One point for Kenya, and zero for Eva. Kenya doesn’t look happy about Cynthia’s friendship with Eva at all.

Cynthia thinks Kenya is too much in her feelings about what Porsha told her last week. Since when are Cynthia and Eva are so close?
Kenya says that hopefully, Cynthia isn’t picking her men the way she picks her friends. Kenya is forever the queen of shade.
There is a lot of Cynthia in this episode. Like A LOT. She’s joined by Eva and Kandi for dress shopping which is an interesting combination.
Kandi is just as confused about Cynthia and Eva’s friendship as everyone else. Did we miss the bestie memo?

Despite the drama with NeNe, Cynthia feels like Pride will be a cordial interaction. Kandi tells Eva what Porsha told Kenya, and now a new feud is born.
Eva gives us a Mariah Carey “I don’t know her” moment regarding Kenya. I have to applaud any nod to MiMi. Eva brings up the blogs about Dennis and says Porsha should worry about her own business. OOF.
Porsha’s going to couple’s therapy with Dennis to try to fix the relationship. For the sake of their family, hopefully, it works out.
In an ideal world, Porsha and Dennis will work through everything. However, anything can happen. There’s no guarantee, they’ll work through their problems successfully.

Porsha comes out of the office a half-hour later CRYING HER EYES OUT. Things did not go well at all. Dennis confessed to having sex with another woman while Porsha was pregnant.
She says it was the most sacred time of her life, and this is the worst betrayal. It doesn’t seem like she’s open to any sort of reconciliation. Porsha won’t stop crying while she explains what happened to her sister Lauren.
Next week features the return of Nene to Real Housewives of Atlanta. So, everyone better watch out. I’m sure she has a lot to say to her former friend Cynthia.
TELL US – SHOULD PORSHA FORGIVE DENNIS? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR NENE TO RETURN TO REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA NEXT WEEK? ARE YOU TEAM KENYA OR TEAM EVA? ARE YOU ENJOYING THIS SEASON OF THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA?
