Tanya Sam was a new addition to Real Housewives of Atlanta in Season 11. She appeared as a Friend of the Housewives. Initially, Tanya was brought on as NeNe Leakes’ friend. Oh, how that changed during the season!
NeNe became angry when she thought that Tanya dissed NeNe’s store, Swagg Boutique, during the Housewives talent show in Florida. NeNe later said that Tanya was obsessed with labels. (Hello–have you met your fellow Housewives? And looked in a mirror lately, NeNe?) In Tokyo, the ladies each got a fortune at a temple. NeNe said that Tanya’s fortune meant that she might not marry her fiancé, Paul Judge. NeNe blew up (as she typically does) when Tanya was upset over the way that NeNe shaded her relationship. Later, Bravo officially changed Tanya to Eva Marcille’s friend. Well played, Bravo. Well played.
Much has happened since Apollo Nida appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta. His wife, Phaedra Parks, filed for, and was granted, a divorce from him. But not so fast! Apollo contested the divorce. He said that he never signed the documents, and that his name was spelled incorrectly. The divorce was reversed. Since Phaedra is an attorney, that must be embarrassing. And awkward. Their divorce was finally settled in 2017. The couple shares two sons together.
Of course, Phaedra lost her RHOA peach after Season 9 because of the horrible rumors that she spread that co-stars Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, supposedly wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha Williams. That debacle was the final nail in the coffin of Phaedra’s time as a Housewife. Well, at least she has more time to devote to her careers as a funeral director/lawyer.
Let’s talk about Dennis McKinley. The fiancé of new mama Porsha Williams has quite a reputation. Since first appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the
Weiner Hot Dog King’s name has been in the mouths of the cast members. Porsha and Dennis recently had a beautiful child and are currently together, despite Porsha’s recent financial issues.
Dennis has multiple tattoos of his ex’s names and confessed to keeping in touch with them. But does that make him
a big cheater cheater pumpkin eater unfaithful? Not necessarily, however, the streets are talking again and wondering if Dennis needs to check his hot dog situation.
The wrath of NeNe Leakes has struck again! Well, kind of. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been busy. After opening a new SWAGG Boutique in Maryland, the much-criticized diva has been on the go. NeNe had a very publicized season of attitude during RHOA, and she hasn’t really copped to
being a complete bitch her antics. It was bound to spill over into her life outside of the cameras.
One “fan” had an up close and personal experience with NeNe at an airport. Is it okay to bother famous people at a public restaurant? Is it okay to interrupt them when they are mid-conversation with someone else? A photo-seeking woman found out, and much like NeNe’s often unfortunate personality, it wasn’t pretty.
Who doesn’t think Ramona Singer is rude? The Real Housewives of New York have said it. Many times. The viewers have thought it. New Jersey Housewife Dolores Catania went on a rant about Ramona. Even RHONJ pot stirrer Kim D said Ramona was the rudest person she’s ever met. Ouch.
The list goes on and on. Now, Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes Javid is slamming the RHONY OG. She also has some choice words for Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes.
NeNe Leakes did not win any congeniality awards when Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 ended. In fact, she barely walked away from the reunion with any friends of all. Pretty much just Marlo Hampton was on her side.
Marlo and NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes supported her at the SWAGG Boutique opening in Maryland. No one else from RHOA showed up, which isn’t at all surprising. Then again, she is still following Shamari DeVoe on Instagram after her massive unfollowing spree. Oh, and NeNe did post a birthday shout out for Kandi Burruss. That’s especially weird since Kandi recently said that they were never really friends. However, NeNe did get some Real Housewives support. Just not from anyone in her own cast. Real Housewives of Potomac cast members attended the SWAGG opening.
Real Housewives of Orange County alums Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have a baby girl on the way. It’s the couple’s first child together and they could not be more excited, especially after their tough journey to conceive.
Gretchen and Slade had a lavish baby shower for their soon-to-be baby girl Skylar Gray at the Seven 7 Seven in Laguna Beach, CA. There were actually a lot of past and present Bravolebrities present at the party. The event was beautifully decorated thanks to Ice Age Glacial Water, Chandon Champagne, Distillery 291, Glamour Flower Boutique, The Balloon Box, and Invitation Design Studio.
It looks likes the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta know how to keep the drama, and the paychecks, flowing. Season 11 of the show got off to a very slow start, but in the end, the season delivered. Eva Marcille finally tied the knot. NeNe Leakes dealt with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer and with marital strife. Thankfully, he is cancer-free now. Cynthia Bailey found love again with Mike Hill. Newbie Shamari DeVoe was accused of having a drinking problem by Marlo Hampton. Porsha Williams fell in love with Dennis McKinley, got engaged, and gave birth to daughter Pilar (and a baby spin-off special!)
In a shocking turn of events, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia because Cynthia did not advise NeNe that former RHOA star Kenya Moore might be at Cynthia’s party. NeNe, never one to be shy, referred to a glowing and pregnant Kenya as a “monster.” As for Cynthia, she looked shady about whether she knew Kenya was going to be at the party.
