Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
As we are all aware, we are living in some tough times these days. At least, we have some entertaining TV shows to watch while we are social distancing and staying safe in our homes.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Watch What Happens Live has been filming new episodes via video chat. Andy Cohen hosts from the safety of his New York City apartment. And different guests video chat in from wherever they are. Although it’s great to see the stars glammed up with pounds of hair extensions and self-tanner, this filming from home thing definitely has some advantages. For instance, there are no travel schedules to consider. This means that it is possible to have premium guests every single night.
Tonight is the night! Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies are ready to recap the season and rehash the drama. The reunion may be virtual, but the drama seems pretty damn real. I’m not gonna lie, I’m really curious to see how it all come together under such unconventional circumstances.
The reunion brings us back to the start of the season: NeNe Leakes and her apology tour. Going into Season 12, NeNe basically had zero friends in the cast. Well, except for Marlo Hampton, but Marlo doesn’t even have a peach. During tonight’s reunion episode, Eva Marcille questions NeNe’s intentions with her apologies. Obviously, NeNe just wants to film this show, regardless of how many times she mentions sisterhood.
No shade, but shade, how has Cynthia Bailey held a peach for ten seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Cynthia is a likable person. She serves up killer confessional looks. But, what about the storylines? Other than the “lapdog” claims, there isn’t a ton going on. And what about the overused catchphrases? If I ever hear “CHILL” or “50 Cynt” again it would be too soon.
Cynthia seems like a nice, albeit very thirsty, person, but she’s just not bringing it as much as the other Housewives do. Where are the meme-worthy moments? Other than throwing new “annual” events with her name in the title, what is she doing for the show? Then again, apparently, she must be doing something right since she’s stayed around for so long. No wonder rumors started to swirl that she might be getting fired. And just to spice things up, the other bit of gossip is that Phaedra Parks is coming back. Of course, the Phaedra return rumors started as soon as she left. So, take that one with a grain of salt.
Being one of the original cast members of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes has been accused of many things. One might say she is a bad friend, one might say she’s a bad partner, one might say NeNe’s entitled, often volatile personality could be the result of trauma. Speculation aside, one cannot expect to be portrayed in a flattering light when 99% of your screen time involves yelling at another person for the better part of 12 years.
Last season we watched NeNe lose most of her friends and become “caregiver” for her husband suffering from cancer. NeNe chalked her coarse attitude up to the overwhelming stress and pressure of assisting Gregg Leakes through his medical crisis. But what if there were other issues looming about? Is there something more to NeNe’s crazy attitude fluctuations? Vivica A. Fox has a thought and she expressed it on a recent episode of RHOA alum Claudia Jordan’s show, and she did NOT hold back. Vivica, you might be in danger girl.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were so happy when Porsha Williams found love with Dennis McKinley. They got engaged, they found out she was pregnant, and it just really seemed like Porsha finally had the life she’s always wanted. Unfortunately, that perfect family did not last very long.
Dennis cheated on Porsha will she was pregnant with his daughter. They broke up and got back together, which included some fruitless therapy sessions and some vague promises about making improvements. At best, Dennis and Porsha’s relationship is awkward to watch. In reality, it just seems like she’s holding on tight for the sake of her daughter and a small shred of hope that she might get some sort of fairytale from a life with Dennis. Porsha, we are all rooting for you, but Dennis is not it. Kandi Burruss was so right about this one.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta are always on point when it comes to their reunion looks. Over the years they have all had show-stopping outfits. The ladies always come prepared to slay us with their looks and usually never disappoint.
Having their glam squads on deck is a luxury they have become accustomed to. The recent nationwide lockdown made it difficult for the ladies to slay. With this season’s reunion now being virtual, the ladies had a change of plans.
If you thought this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta was messy with the return of Kenya Moore, you’ll probably love this news. Mama Joyce’s streets are screaming and rumors are running rampant over what might be one of the biggest controversies in Housewives history. Have a seat, NeNe Leakes, this one is not about you. But I’m sure that will change any moment…
Reports are saying Cynthia Bailey has been given the thank u, next treatment by Bravo. Cynthia, our model extraordinaire, might not be the most interesting person in the world, but she does have the gift of longevity. It’s fair to say some folks have been trying to cancel Cynthia for years, but that could be said about most of the cast at some point. Despite Cynthia’s new engagement, wine business, and other
feeble attempts to remain in focus, she might finally be gone. But that’s not what may cause you to clutch your pearls. The real scoop is who might be replacing Our Model and Savior, Cynthia. Buckle up Kandi Burruss and hide the keys to the sex dungeon, because attorney, friend of the deceased, and ex-wife of a convict, Phaedra Parks might want to have a word.
