Last night was part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, and despite there being a computer screen between all these women the fighting was no less intense!
NeNe Leakes is an out of control monster. This is nothing new, but Kenya Moore is no better. Kenya is the biggest hypocrite on this show and after briefly enjoying her this season I’m right back to fully detesting her as Krayonce, an awful mean woman looking to tear everyone down.
There’s a reason Cynthia Bailey is so afraid to cross Kenya. Unlike NeNe who is nasty and pops her mouth off, but is wholly unbelievable, Kenya’s assaults are planned, organized, and meant to inflict damage.
Andy Cohen has to fully keep his trigger finger on the mute button for this reunion. Mostly for NeNe and Kandi Burruss. They start off arguing, and end part 2 bickering. Kandi has had it with NeNe refusing to take accountability. Especially after NeNe put a YouTube video up on her personal channel complaining that Bravo offers the same Real Housewife Of Atlanta a spinoff, over and over, when no one else gets the opportunity. Now, who on earth could she be referring to?! NeNe tries to pass it off that she was talking about Kim Zolciak-Biermann, but Kandi is not gonna let that BS fly.
Honestly, it is high time that NeNe leave this show! I think it’s actually time that Real Housewives Of Atlanta completely cleans house. Cynthia is clearly moving to LA, and Kenya has also run her course. I’m bored by Marlo Hampton and Eva Marcille. This show just needs a revamp. Desperately!

According to Kenya, she was completely within grounds to trash Marlo’s wig launch because 3 years ago Marlo made a comment mocking Moore Haircare, and several years ago Porsha Williams and Shamea Morton drank water from the bottles at her haircare launch. Yeah – completely nonsensical. Kenya wanted to do something mean, because she doesn’t like Marlo, plain and simple.
Instead of just apologizing and admitting she was being nasty, Kenya tries to double-down and dismiss Marlo’s business as fake. Even Andy points out that Kenya is fine harming other women’s business, but takes it as the ultimate insult when someone comes for hers. And the same goes for relationships.
Again, Kenya has zero remorse for calling Tanya Sam a c-u-next-Tuesday and trying to imply that her fiancé Paul Judge was having an affair with that rode and put away after a bath with Moore Hair Care, Cookie Lady. According to Kenya, Tanya totally deserved this for exposing her wig-wearing. Girl, please. THIS, this right here, is why Kenya does not have true friendships or a good relationship.

Thankfully Tanya is not taking her crap and straight-up tells Kenya to be quiet and stop her shenanigans. Also, I don’t think anyone believed Paul would be that stupid as to shit where Kenya eats! Tanya’s problem is that Kenya had known about the cookie lady accusation for months, but instead of being any kind of friend and warning her that this rumor was being spread she turned it into double-stuffed nonsense-o’s by trying to imply something in Canada. Then when Tanya didn’t behave as Kenya wanted her to by flying off the handle, Kenya concocted this stunt. I still wonder why foolish Cookie Lady would want to embarrass herself and her business on national TV this way. Is she that hard-up for some publicity?
Cynthia also knew for months but chose not to say anything until Kenya started implying that someone’s man was cheating during the Canada trip. Even though Tanya and Cynthia are friends!
Porsha is tired of Cynthia also getting a pass for her messiness in sucking up to Kenya so “Porsha from Atalanta” asked a question about why Cynthia was involved in the cookie lady stunt but isn’t getting called out. Cynthia offered some non-answer that she felt Cookie Lady should make an appearance at Brooklyn’s party to confront Tanya. Cynthia reminds everyone that she was also the person who finally warned Tanya after Kenya’s “What would you do if you knew someone in the group’s man was cheating…” seance. Alas, as Tanya points out, it was actually KENYA’s man who was cheating and it was worse than cookies – Marc Daly had a full-on dessert cart in NYC! At this Kenya insists the cookie story is stale.

See this is exactly the problem. This right there is where Andy should have pushed Kenya. She may be able to getaway with saying that if Marc is dating other people now it doesn’t matter because they’re separated, but at the time Kenya was rolling out that tub of cookie dough she was very much married! Furthermore, if Marc is sincere about working on their marriage why is he dipping in other treats? I guess Kenya wasn’t lying last week when she said Marc had done a complete 360 in his behavior. Yep – he’s right back where he started from: not being faithful and not taking this marriage or “Ken” seriously.
Tanya is also frustrated that Eva sat there and ate the cookies, but honestly, Eva is kind of a non-factor. She’s afraid of Kenya too and will do anything to stay on her good side. That’s why she is jumping in on every sentence NeNe utters. There is no defense of NeNe, but Eva’s behavior is as transparent as can be!
Snarking on Eva aside, Andy asks her about the status of Michael Sterling adopting Marley. Eva reveals that her “donor,” Kevin McCall, sued her to contest the name change, demanding child support and custody, but was actually arrested in court. Yikes. Eva breaks down into tears describing how horrifically violent Kevin was in their relationship and how she finally escaped and pressed charges. Eva was so distraught she had to take a break and left the set. Kenya goes to call her, because this is a pure Kenya trick – pretending to be a good person in disguise, so Andy turns his attentions to Porsha and Dennis McKinley.

They are quarantining together and still a couple, but the wedding date is still not set. Shockingly Porsha admits she rushed their relationship and if she had to do it over again she would’ve waited a while to get pregnant and engaged. Andy asks Porsha about recent allegations that Dennis was cheating after he was spotted at a restaurant with 2 women at 4am. Porsha knew he was out for a friend’s birthday party, but still got angry at him for not thinking more about how his actions would look – especially when he’s already been unfaithful! All in all Porsha seems to have a more rational approach to Dennis, and seems to accept that this is just who he is, but she deserves better and needs to dump this man to the curb. Well, maybe wait until quarantine lifts and bulk trash pickup returns!
Andy is also curious about the status of Porsha and Kenya’s friendship. Initially they were supporting each other through new motherhood and also relationship woes, but now Porsha is dropping shade in her confessionals and Kenya is back to being nasty. Porsha shrugs that this time she’s being shady to Ken’s face, so there’s no parasol needed shade her back. Porsha started to question Kenya’s intentions when she made snarky comments about the beastiality accusations against Dennis. Although Porsha never felt the need to publicly dismiss them because they were so ridiculous – and furthermore sticking your dick-dog in a hot dog bun and asking someone to lick it does not animal sex make – but she was still offended that Kenya went there.
What really tipped Porsha over into realizing that Kenya’s so-called transformation was all fake was Kenya trying to conspire with her to throw Cynthia under the bus in order to remind Cynthia of her place. Porsha did in fact forward those so-called incriminating texts to Andy, and while they didn’t out and out implicate Kenya as plotting to destroy Cynthia, Kenya’s treatment of Cynthia all season spoke for itself!

Kenya was bothered by Cynthia’s new friendship with Eva, and decided Cynthia is only allowed to have one opinionated friend: her! She spent the entire season shading Cynthia’s businesses and relationship, and then even tried to ruin Mike Hill‘s surprise proposal. Cynthia should be angry about all this, but instead, she blindly defends Kenya like she always does. Kenya can do no wrong in Cynthia’s wig, because she doesn’t want Kenya to truly turn on her! Although Cynthia was at times frustrated with Kenya’s behavior she feels they worked it out and that Kenya has proven herself a true friend. Cynthia needs to get a dictionary to look up the definition on the word “friendship.”
The most shocking part of the reunion was when Kenya called Gregg Leakes out for being inappropriate with NeNe’s staff, and accused him of cheating. Instead of raging and screaming at Kenya, NeNe just sat there, stank-faced and blank-eyed, shrugging that it was true. NeNe had already publicly called him out on a podcast, so she can’t back away from it now! It was a strange moment in which no one – not even Andy – said anything in Gregg or NeNe’s defense, or even asked a question about what’s going on. Like everyone had a made a pact not to mention it? It’s especially odd as NeNe always puts herself up as the expert on marriage in this group!

That didn’t get NeNe angry enough to leave the set but in the middle of Andy breaking down what happened with Cynthia and Kenya’s friendship, vs. what happened with Cynthia and NeNe’s friendship, NeNe muttered that all these girls need her. Then she shut the computer lid and walked away, leaving it trained on some note she had written.
Goodbye NeNe!!!!! Don’t let the computer screen hit ‘ya where the good lord split ‘ya!
