There have been some shade masters in the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, past and present. NeNe Leakes is super shady, even if she has to write out and rehearse her insults ahead of time. Shade seems to be Kenya Moore’s source of oxygen.
Kandi Burruss can deliver a solid read when she’s provoked, usually by NeNe. Porsha Williams says some of the funniest things. Marlo Hampton isn’t afraid to go below the belt. There are a lot of shady ladies on this show, but who is the shadiest of them all?
When NeNe Leakes stormed out in the middle of the Real Housewives of Atlanta virtual reunion, she left her computer monitor on with a notebook shoved against the screen. On that notebook, were some notes NeNe had on hand for the taping.
It looked to a lot of people that NeNe wrote down pre-planned her reads against her co-stars. So much for being off the cuff, right? Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss seems to be the only one who actually complied with the rules. While the other Housewives admitted to having glam squads at their homes in the middle of the pandemic, Kandi did her own hair and makeup. She also came up with her own insults, off the top of her head too. Unlike some people…
I have to admit, ever since “that b**ch from Clark” Yovanna Momplaisir jumped on the Real Housewives of Atlanta scene, I wasn’t exactly a fan. She ruined a perfectly good dinner party trying to get a name for herself. Then she was a key player in the whole Snake Gate debacle this season. Well, really, she was the fall guy for Nene Leakes.
But all that changed for me when Yovanna single-handedly saved the RHOA reunion. Not much was happening until she was brought in for part 3, and she made her limited time count. Just before she went on, NeNe stomped off, never to return. Yovanna alleges it’s because NeNe knew Yovanna was coming with receipts. And she was no longer going to be NeNe’s pawn in this mess. Yovanna told us that NeNe asked her to record her cast mates talking smack on her. While Yovanna promised to do so, she really didn’t. When NeNe let her take the fall, Yovanna decided that the thirst to be on the show wasn’t worth being a villain.
NeNe Leakes has been endorsing a Kim Zolciak comeback on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Understandably, Kim is hesitant to jump back in. She did not come across well (at all) during season 10. If you recall, she claimed, “racism isn’t all that real” during that reunion episode after feuding with Kenya Moore and NeNe.
Sure, she’s a mom of six who has mouths to feed and an RHOA paycheck can help with that. But, at least she has her own show with her family called Don’t Be Tardy, which just seems way more enjoyable to film.
Yvonna Momplaisir might be a mere “friend of” on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But for being a friend of, she is bringing plenty to the table. She might be summed up as a one-time NeNe Leakes friend and accomplice in Snake Gate. Either way, Yovanna proved she’s not taking the fall for anyone. On part three of the reunion, Yovanna sat down to tell them her side of the Snake Gate drama. According to Yovanna, NeNe set the whole thing up and she was just trying to help a friend out. We’ve heard that one before, right?
NeNe now infamously stormed off and didn’t bother to defend herself. But if NeNe was going to start the drama, Yovanna was going to finish it. Was this all a ploy for Yovanna to get herself a peach?
NeNe Leakes is having quite the season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Despite bringing little to that table (in my humble opinion), she stays in the news. And maybe that’s her end game. Doing the bare minimum on the show and then staying in the lime light on her own terms.
So far this season, we haven’t seen much of her. But we’ve seen her all over her Instagram and YouTube channel, ripping her cast mates to shreds. NeNe has accused Kandi Burruss of never being number one at anything in her life. She’s called Eva Marcille boring. She even reignited an old beef with Sheree Whitfield. NeNe couldn’t even finish filming the reunion when ex-accomplice Yovanna Momplaisir showed up to tell her side of the Snake Gate story. And let’s face it, storming off made NeNe look guilty as hell for starting the whole thing, just like Yovanna was saying.
Oh man, Real Housewives Of Atlanta season 12 has officially ended, and with it so many things we hold to be near and dear – like NeNe Leakes‘ dignity. Haaaa… just kidding. That got ripped off with a wig about 5 seasons ago!
NeNe never managed to return for the remainder of the reunion. Close your legs to married men; close your laptop to scary women! Eva Marcille predicts that NeNe was running scared after she learned her now-former friend Yovanna Momplaisir was secretly invited to the reunion and was coming with the good dirt. Yovanna accidentally spilled the tea by posting about it on Instagram. Not that NeNe wouldn’t have just ‘walked out‘ the second Yovanna appeared on the screen.
See, no good deed goes unpunished. NeNe was trying to promote her thirsty friend, Yovanna. However, these jump-offs always turn on their springboard. And the higher the heels the farther the fall!
During the latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, NeNe Leakes walked out. It’s unclear if that is the end of her time on the reunion or if she will be back for more fighting on part 3.
The season 12 reunion concludes with one more episode. And that means we will have to sit through yet another Yovanna Momplaisir appearance. No one cares about Yovanna. Bravo just needs to stop trying to make Yovanna happen. No one wants to see her. Ever.
