Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore took a hefty pay cut to twirl her way back on the show for Season 12. She was fired after Season 10 because she refused to make her private life with her husband, Marc Daly, available to the show. It is a reality show, right? So why would Kenya expect that she could avoid having her marriage documented on camera?
While Kenya made $1.5 million for Season 10 of RHOA, she is now making $500,000 for Season 12. It is alleged that Marc is having some financial issues, so he fits right in with the rest of the Housewives universe.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore was allegedly fired from the show after Season 10 for refusing to show aspects of her private life with her new husband, Marc Daly. Kenya being let go shouldn’t have come as a shock since Marc was allergic to television cameras. Or, at least the ones on RHOA.
But now, Kenya is filming for Season 12, even if it did cause NeNe Leakes to flip her wig. The returning diva is twirling back to the franchise and taking a major pay cut to do so. Kenya is making a paltry $500,000 for the season. She made $1.5 million for Season 10. Ouch!
Is there another Porsha Williams spin-off show in the works? I’m getting ahead of myself here, but I could see it happening if she gets pregnant with baby number two. After a slow Real Housewives of Atlanta Season, Porsha’s Having a Baby was such a joy to watch. It was a hilarious, feel-good show.
It didn’t seem like baby number two was a possibility for Porsha since she and Dennis McKinley temporarily split up (a couple different times). However, they’re back together now and they have their hearts set on
getting another Bravo check expanding their family. However, Porsha recently shot down pregnancy speculation and body shamers.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans haven’t heard these words in a hot minute: “Mr. Chocolate.” All the way back during RHOA Season 7, Phaedra Parks was rumored to be dating a guy known as “Mr. Chocolate”… while she was still married to Apollo Nida.
Even with the text print-outs, Phaedra denied the cheating allegation, but the mystery remained. Or at least it did. Andy Cohen spilled the tea on that man’s identity.
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Cynthia Bailey always looks amazing, which makes sense since she was a model before she become a reality TV star. She doesn’t serve up much drama on RHOA (minus that hot mic moment from the Season 11 finale). However, the woman is always serving fierce looks.
Well, at least she almost always does. She actually made a pretty big beauty faux pas. Now, the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member no longer has any eyelashes. AT ALL. And, yes Season 12 of Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently in production. It’s gonna be so awkward watching her next season.
There are some reality TV stars’ kids that we have literally watched grow up throughout the years. It’s crazy to think that Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers saw Teresa Giudice pregnant with Audriana Giudice during the Season 1 reunion. Now, she is a fifth grader. Do you feel old yet? I do. How about this one: Gia Giudice is a freshman in college.
Jersey Shore fans saw Snooki and JWoww go from hard-partying roomies to devoted moms. Now, their kids are in school too. And just like most other moms, reality TV stars took (and shared) photos of their kids’ first day of school.
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
Last season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes managed to alienate all her co-stars. She chased Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams (and a cameraman) out of her closet. She may have ripped off Porsha’s belt.
NeNe fell out with long-time bestie Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia had the audacity to invite RHOA alum Kenya Moore to Cynthia’s bellini launch party. How dare Cynthia not run her guest list by NeNe! NeNe referred to pregnant Kenya as a “monster” when Kandi arrived with Kenya. Cynthia told NeNe that she didn’t know that Kenya was coming to the party.
