There have been some shade masters in the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, past and present. NeNe Leakes is super shady, even if she has to write out and rehearse her insults ahead of time. Shade seems to be Kenya Moore’s source of oxygen.
Kandi Burruss can deliver a solid read when she’s provoked, usually by NeNe. Porsha Williams says some of the funniest things. Marlo Hampton isn’t afraid to go below the belt. There are a lot of shady ladies on this show, but who is the shadiest of them all?
It’s been years since we saw Phaedra Parks on Real Housewives of Atlanta. And if it weren’t for how dirty she did costar Kandi Burruss, I would take her back over NeNe Leakes any day. But before all that went down, Phaedra had the best shade, the best kids and the most dramatic marriage situation. She was a true renaissance woman to boot. A lawyer, mortician and creator/star of the Donkey Booty workout. Phaedra did it all.
And she gave us a truly real-life dramatic breakdown of her marriage with then-husband, Apollo Nida. Don’t get me wrong, it was more scary than dramatic when he showed up to get his things and stormed around their house, despite being on camera. But it was a moment that was the most real, even when reality tv sometimes scrapes for a storyline. I felt for Phaedra in that moment.
As a total outsider who doesn’t actually know Kenya Moore, it blows my mind that she’s trying to reconcile with Marc Daly. From what we’ve seen, he is far from the ideal husband. From the weird way he calls her “Ken,” to his insistence on having control over everything, it’s just hard to find anything to like about this man.
During last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya revealed that she wasn’t allowed to talk to Marc’s parents. Weeks ago, she shared that Marc was sending flirty texts to former flings, who had no idea he was married with a child. Red flag alert, Kenya. Red flag alert. NeNe Leakes claimed that Marc was having multiple affairs during last week’s episode too. And, on top of all this, Kenya and Marc live in two different states. This is far from the recipe for an ideal marriage. Even Phaedra Parks‘ ex-husband Apollo Nida has something to say about Marc.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama between Phaedra Parks and her now-ex Apollo Nida was downright riveting. I will never forget their heated confrontation in the garage right before Apollo went to prison. The tension was real!
I’ll also never forget how the other RHOA cast members got involved in Apollo’s messiness. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker confessed that they were keeping Apollo’s motorcycle in storage at their ATL mansion. Who could forget when Phaedra hit peak level petty and called the feds to their house? Legendary television.
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was tough to watch. Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey went out of their way to protect Kenya Moore from the group following the news of her separation from Marc Daly.
Obviously, many RHOA viewers can’t stand Marc, but Kenya has made it very difficult to have sympathy for her. Last night, NeNe Leakes showed Kenya some
phony sympathy at dinner. In response, Kenya thanked each cast member individually, except for NeNe, which was super rude. Then, Kenya made a half ass attempt at peace when she decided to bring out a plate of dessert to NeNe- the same dessert that was available in mass quantities for the entire cast. How special. And, of course, the shade continued onto Twitter.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans know that the ladies have what it takes to be over the top when it comes to being petty. Case in point, NeNe Leakes. She is a shade master. Just when you think you know where NeNe stands and who her friends are, she does something to completely negate that.
Somewhat recently, NeNe was very vocal about her desire to get Phaedra Parks back on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Seemingly, she wanted to offset the Kenya Moore return since both NeNe and Phaedra have Kenya in common as a long-time enemy. However, that’s probably gonna be a tough sell for the network since Phaedra was fired after she started rumors that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss is seeing red and her husband Todd Tucker might soon show up on a milk carton. Kandi and Todd recently celebrated the birth of their newborn daughter, Blaze. As many parents know, the first moments at home with a brand new infant is one of the most
terrifying important times in the bonding process. As moms and dads navigate feeding times and diaper changes, they can also revel in the bliss of combined sleep deprivation. It truly is a joyous journey.
Sometimes though, both parents aren’t willing participants in the
lack of freedom first few days of their child’s life. Work schedules, previous commitments, or not living together can interfere with the overall parental workload. Todd is special, however. In his case, the call of the club scene is apparently too strong to avoid. Now Kandi wants to have a word with her husband about his extracurricular activities. Good luck, Todd.
When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
