Exclusive Interview: Tanya Sam On Tokyo Drama, Her Relationship, & More About Real Housewives Of Atlanta

We don’t get to see a ton of Tanya Sam on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but when we do we get to witness someone who’s clearheaded, well-rounded, and not sweating the small stuff. In other words, she’s a breath of fresh air among women arguing about overpriced flip flops and rehashing drama from three years ago.

We first “met” Tanya as a friend of NeNe Leakes en route to Cynthia Bailey’s Bailey-Cue event. A few episodes later, her title on the show describes her as “Eva [Marcille]’s friend,” which is some super shady editing. Nevertheless, there’s much more to Tanya than who she’s friends with. Unfortunately, we just don’t get to see all of her dimension on the show. Thankfully, Tanya recently opened up to Reality Tea for an exclusive interview. She provided some valuable insights and spilled some behind-the-scenes info about her first season on the show.

RHOA-Porsha-Williams

Real Housewives of Atlanta fans may have been skeptical of Porsha Williams’ fiancé, hot dog king Dennis McKinley, when he first came on the scene. Isn’t that right, Kandi Burruss? Porsha shut down Kandi’s concerns about Porsha and her man moving too fast. And about Dennis sporting too many tattoos with other girls’ names.

Porsha revealed that she was pregnant in September of 2018. This makes sense because Porsha has been craving pickles– a lot of pickles. In fact, Porsha and her frenemy “big sister,” NeNe Leakes, sprung the news on the Housewives during their RHOA Tokyo girls’ trip. Porsha even told the ladies in Japanese while NeNe banged on a gong. No — I don’t understand about the gong, either. Was NeNe trying to drown out Porsha’s surprise announcement?

Kim Zolciak Says She’s “Washed My Hands” Of Friendship With Kandi Burruss

It’s hard to remember that Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss used to make music together . Think back to the early days of Real Housewives of Atlanta.  That music includes a little tune called “Tardy for the Party.” That song was catchy enough to inspire the name of the first RHOA spin-off: Don’t Be Tardy. That was before stolen baby names. And, of course, it was before a lawsuit for unpaid compensation came between them.

Their dynamic became even worse during a dinner between Kim and Sheree Whitfield. Kim swore on her kids’ heads that Kandi wanted to “lick her box.”

Marlo

Why isn’t Marlo Hampton a full-time cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Seriously though. Marlo gives us consistent drama, humor, and shade. This season has been a complete and utter waste dull, but luckily we have Marlo. Most of this season’s memorable moments have revolved around her. Her over the top reaction to losing her luggage in Japan was GOLD. NeNe Leakes’ husband has cancer and Marlo was snapping about not having deodorant.

In addition to Marlo’s humor, she is always giving us drama. We almost died when she called Shamari DeVoe’s momma a bitch. Who can forget her 43-hour car ride fight with Eva Marcille in Tokyo? Maybe Marlo just dislikes the new girls (especially the full-time cast members)? How does this woman not have a peach yet? Her hilarious moments and epic fights have definitely saved this season. Marlo is also slaying off camera. What exactly does Marlo think of the queen of amnesia Eva? OH, THE SHADE. 

Lisa Vanderpump Address NeNe Leake’s Accusation That PUMP Was Her Idea

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes threw some punches at the restaurateur, tea sipping, TomTom minding  Lisa Vanderpump.

Is there not enough drama in their own shows that they have to cross the aisle and fight with other housewives? Apparently so and Lisa is not about to let these accusations slide.

Todd Tucker Defends Kandi Burruss Missing Her Son’s Recital

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has been very open with her struggle to balance career and family time. In last week’s episode, the cast did their version of rose and thorn during their last dinner in Japan. Eva Marcille asked the ladies to discuss the highs and lows they have in their lives right now.

Kandi gushed her “highs” are all about how amazing all of her businesses are doing. For her “lows,” she admitted she struggles to find time for her family. She explained this is why her husband Todd Tucker and her daughter Riley Burruss aren’t too thrilled with her desire to have another baby. Apparently, fans of the show are also upset over Kandi’s work life balance.  

Kim Zolciak Discusses NeNe Leakes’ Marriage Struggles

It feels like the saga between Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes will never end. During Season 1 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, these two were best friends. For a couple episodes anyway. Then, they had an on-again-off-again relationship that spawned some infamous insults.

NeNe told Kim “close your legs to married men.” She called her a “trash box.” NeNe even referred to Kim as “Wig” instead of her actual name. Many times over. And who can forget their confrontation during the Season 10 reunion?  There’s no coming back from that kind of animosity. Right? Well, you never know what to expect from these two. The door is actually not closed.

Kim Zolciak Explains Why She Didn’t Go To Andy Cohen’s Baby Shower

Andy Cohen’s baby shower last month was an event of epic proportions and was packed with Real Housewives.  Unfortunately, there were some OG’s missing. Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kim Zolciak did not attend.

The baby bash was hosted by the Real Housewives OG’s, NeNe Leakes, Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, Teresa Giudice, and Kyle Richards. Why wasn’t Kim at the party? Did she just blow it off? Furthermore, did they even invite her?
