On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies struggled to find balance in their various friendships as they opened up about painful pasts and future realities.
Suddenly Gregg and NeNe Leakes are in love. Is it because he now has a job being part of the American Cancer Society as an ambassador? Whatever the case, NeNe is just thrilled to see Gregg. She tells him this great tale of revisionist history about what happened in Greece.
NeNe was just this poor innocent bystander, trying to be kind and compassionate when “KEN” would not stop picking at her. NeNe conveniently leaves out the part of the story where she spit on Kenya Moore. Also she threw the popcorn cause girls gotta eat. According to Gregg, NeNe has extended so many olive branches to Kenya Moore that she practically gave her a whole orchard.
What an epic fail that we had the Real Housewives Of Atlanta visit Lindsay Lohan‘s beach club and we don’t get a Lohan sighting or any of the requisite drama?! Instead, we had to pretend that Dina Lohan is some famous friend of Kandi Burruss‘ and the ladies were doing Dina a favor by visiting her daughter’s little beachside bar. But a Lohan was not present. Nor was there a mention of Lindsay’s failed reality show.
So the women are in Greece trying to figure out how goddesses behave. In fairness to NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore, the original Greek goddesses were a pretty vengeful and petty bunch, ergo probably not above spitting or questioning the moistness level of one’s kitty. Still Nene Leakes is no goddess, and as a mortal her behavior was APPALLING.
Yes, Kenya is a shady bitch who’s nasty-nice and pushes buttons that are way below the belt, but spitting on someone and threatening to assault them as NeNe was doing – NEWP, NEWP, NEWP!
That reconciliation between Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes came out of nowhere. The two of them have barely spoken this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Then, Porsha pulls NeNe aside to make up, even though NeNe is the woman who fat-shamed Porsha six days after she gave birth and went crazy on Porsha in her bedroom closet.
How did this happen? Was it even sincere? Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore don’t think so, which isn’t a surprise. Well, the Kenya part isn’t a surprise. Kandi was the first RHOA cast member to be cool with NeNe (when no one else wanted to film with her) this season and she’s stopped shading Porsha, well, until now that is.
Even though the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion taping has been postponed due to Coronavirus concerns, that doesn’t mean we’ve run out of new RHOA content. Thankfully, the ladies’ Greek vacation continued on Sunday night. It was an entertaining episode, as per usual.
The weirdest part of the last episode was when Kenya Moore kept pointing out that Cynthia Bailey has zero wine knowledge, even though she recently opened up a wine cellar in Atlanta. Why was Kenya shading her most loyal friend in the group? Oh, that’s right, because she can get away with it. We have all seen Cynthia turn a blind eye to Kenya and excuse her behavior and Sunday’s episode was no different. Of course, Kenya pulled her same old tricks. In response to Kenya’s constant shade, Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam bought Cynthia a Greek evil eye bracelet to ward off jealousy and haters. Cynthia is on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it’s way too late to ward off the haters now. Maybe if she had a thousand evil bracelets. That many bracelets might work.
You guys… I am so sorry for the delay in this Real Housewives Of Atlanta recap! I was not prepared, mentally and otherwise, for the Coronavirus quarantine/homeschooling curve. The true pandemic is going to be if all these parents can survive being trapped in the house with their kids trying to educate them using a PBS app and their own foggy remembrances of school. I think I’m going to have mine start by alphabetizing the pantry, then baking me cookies.
The next test will be if I can handle dealing with my husband for the next two weeks… But is any of that really worse than going on an international vacation with Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore? Those two are THE WORST. They are the Coronavirus of their friend group.
The writing has been on the wall since Kenya Moore‘s first instagram post announcing her impromptu marriage to Marc Daly, but they made it official last night when Real Housewives Of Atlanta reported on their split.
Following the he-man, woman-hater benefit Marc hosted where he took advantage of Kenya’s entire Atlanta social network (and used her as unpaid intern), then publicly insulted his wife, before demanding Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras stop filming him, Kenya tried to flee in an Uber. But Marc makes all the rules for what ‘Ken’ can do and what Ken can’t do is move unless Marc says move.
According to Kenya, Marc jumped into her uber and they proceeded to get in a screaming fight. Marc was so enraged and out of control the Uber driver kicked him out and Kenya banned him from returning to her home. As a domestic violence survivor, Kenya is all too aware of how these situations go and she absolutely made the right choice in creating distance between them when Marc was so angry
