It’s no secret that Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore have been at each other’s throats this season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, often with Marlo Hampton on the former’s side while Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey back up the latter.
In a new sit-down ahead of the show’s first-ever virtual reunion, the RHOA OG opened up about why she thinks Kandi has teamed up with her nemesis, and let’s just say she didn’t mince words.
Marlo Hampton has been featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta from all the way back in Season 4, but it’s only been in the past three years that she’s secured an official recurring gig as a Friend of the Housewives. And in that time, Marlo has constantly sided with Nene Leakes, at times acting as the RHOA OG’s one and only friend among the group of Georgia Peaches.
As such, Marlotta has developed something of a reputation as Nene‘s latest “lapdog” in the eyes of Housewives like Kenya Moore, Eva Marcille and Cynthia Bailey. However, in a new interview with Nene, the Friend of the Housewives is speaking out against the label and even calling the OG out on how one-sided their friendship can be.
Well, Sheree Whitfield wasn’t a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta last season, but that didn’t stop her from getting involved in some drama. After all, Sheree is the “bone collector.” Sheree exited the show after Season 10. Apparently having her incarcerated boyfriend, Tyrone Gilliams, woo her from prison wasn’t a blockbuster storyline.
Sheree had some strong feelings about a YouTube interview that RHOA star NeNe Leakes did with Jennifer Williams. Jennifer is a cast member on Basketball Wives.
After a slight delay and some adjustments in response to global pandemic, the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion is on the way. Andy Cohen dished on the season virtually, with everyone filming safely from their homes. And, no, that doesn’t mean that they dressed casually. They all dressed the nines and they even had some good lighting in there.
While a true reunion can never be completely replaced, the RHOA ladies made the most of the circumstances.
From the time Kandi Burruss has joined the Real Housewives of Atlanta, her weight has been brought up many times. The ladies often make jokes about her always eating. There have even been times Kandi herself will even bring up always wanting to eat while the other ladies argue.
One thing we never have to worry about Kandi doing is hiding things from us. She has always been an open book when it comes to her life. Showing the ups and downs with her family, her marriage and even her business ventures. So it isn’t shocking that the long time housewife is sharing details about her plastic surgery journey.
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 ended with Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s Hollywood/block party-themed baby shower. At that baby shower, NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore got into a screaming match so bad that security had to intervene.
The other shower-related drama didn’t even happen at the actual event. Kandi’s mother Mama Joyce refused to attend after Todd didn’t say hi to her when she was having lunch at OLG restaurant. Let’s also keep in mind that this is a restaurant named partly in honor of Mama Joyce and she sees some of that money. But anyway, Mama Joyce is the queen of petty. Even when she’s right, she takes her grudges too far. Missing a big family event was so immature.
NeNe Leakes is heated after that Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion taping. Other than Porsha Williams, she seems to have no full-time cast members on her side. At least, she has part-timers Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam for support. However, they weren’t on hand for the whole reunion taping.
On the opposite side was a team led by Kenya Moore. That group includes Kandi Burruss, who has been beefing in the press with NeNe lately. NeNe has been shading Eva Marcille for adding nothing to the show. So, now she’s #TeamKenya. And, then there’s Cynthia Bailey. She made peace with NeNe, but she takes residence up Kenya’s ass. So, we all know where her loyalties lie when it comes down to it.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast filmed the season 12 reunion this past weekend via video chat. And the next day, NeNe Leakes shared all of the issues that she had with the day.
Yes, NeNe is an extremely polarizing figure on this show, but based on her account, it’s pretty clear she was sabotaged by production to be the odd one out during the taping. Of course, that is if her story is true. Let’s see what the OG housewife had to say. You be the judge.
