Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta officially brought the show back to its glory days, and surprisingly it is Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss who are stealing the show! At least for me anyway…
Ever since Mama Joyce disappeared into the streets, Kandi’s personal storylines have been as exciting as watching
Kaela and Todd talk/not-talk paint dry at OLG restaurants. Instead, Kandi has emerged as a sort of omnipotent narrator. A centrist who’s not going be anyone’s ally or enemy. Case in point, she meets Nene Leakes for lunch and has no problem questioning NeNe’s behavior in a way that is direct, but not confrontational.
Kandi is suspicious of NeNe’s invitation from the get-go. The last time they came face to face was at the reunion, where NeNe basically called her irrelevant. But, now, NeNe has been seeing a
crisis PR manager life coach. She is reformed so she’s trying to rebuild her career friendships. Basically, if no one on the actual cast will film with her, she has no place in the show. Which honestly that is why NeNe shouldn’t be ON the show.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were read, right and blue when Cynthia Bailey threw her annual “BaileyQue” (for the second consecutive year in a row). Of course, one person was glaringly absent from the guest list, and that would be Nene Leakes!
Since NeNe can’t find anyone else to film with her she has to make amends with her lackey, Marlo Hampton. NeNe has Marlo and her nephews over for lunch (to spill high tea?), and also drags blast from the unfortunate past, Yovanna along. You’ll remember Yovanna as “that bitch” who got super drunk at some weird boob-themed couples dinner and accused Eva Marcille of pretending not to remember her from college.
Marlo Hampton has been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta for years but has never snagged a coveted peach of her own. An RHOA producer attempted to answer why Marlo is still peach-less at BravoCon, but it was more of a non-answer.
There is no question that Marlo loves to spill the tea and is super shady. Last season Marlo, who prides herself on her fashionista status, schooled newbie Shamari DeVoe on her questionable fashion choices.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta featured way, way too much of messy Marlo Hampton. Lady, worry about fixing the fit on your sequined jumpsuit, not about fixing Cynthia Bailey‘s friendship with Nene Leakes! Did I just agree with NeNe on something? Well, Fix it JESUS – save me from myself.
Otherwise, Kenya Moore‘s marriage to Marc Daly is in some major trouble – as if we didn’t know that already. And Porsha Williams decides against rekindling her relationship with Dennis McKinley.
Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers have watched Porsha Williams struggling with some hard truths. Her relationship with fiancé Dennis McKinley seemed to be perfect. Dennis, who is the Hot Dog King of Atlanta, popped the question with a huge ring, and Porsha said “Yes!”
The couple even had their own spin-off on Bravo that detailed day to day life for Porsha and Dennis as they awaited the birth of their daughter. On March 22, baby Pilar Jhena McKinley finally made her entrance.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured NeNe Leakes behaving badly. At a party at NeNe’s house, Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams entered NeNe’s closet. An enraged NeNe yanked a cameraman out of her closet, ripping his shirt. No one goes in NeNe’s closet without her permission. Maybe she should have an engraved plaque with a warning on her closet door. Just saying.
When NeNe’s former bestie Cynthia Bailey invited RHOA alum Kenya Moore to her launch party, NeNe once again got hot. When Kandi arrived with Kenya, NeNe was furious. She called Kenya a “monster.” NeNe also cut off Cynthia, because NeNe wasn’t given the chance to sign off on the guest list. Cynthia said she didn’t know that Kenya was coming.
Here come the Bravo brides! Love is in the air for a pair of Housewives who are prepping to tie the knot next year on a lucky day. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey received a sweet proposal from her man, sportscaster Mike Hill, on July 26.
Mike popped the question at the opening of The Bailey WineCellar, and RHOA cameras were rolling. Cynthia was thrilled!
