Even though the coronavirus outbreak has postponed the filming of the Season 12 reunion of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the drama hasn’t stopped. During the cast trip to Greece, viewers saw another chapter unfold in the on-going war between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore. NeNe did (or almost) spit on Kenya. Stay classy, NeNe.
After NeNe’s leopard brunch, RHOA star Kandi Burruss made a joke about NeNe’s large entourage of friends that no one knew. Kandi said that perhaps those ladies were invited in case no other guests came. Oh, the shade, Kandi!
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey has been given a few surprises recently. On July 26, 2019 Cynthia’s boyfriend, Mike Hill, popped the question at the opening of Cynthia’s The Bailey WineCellar. It was a sweet proposal, and it included Mike daughter, Kayla, and Cynthia’s daughter, Noelle Robinson.
In an episode of RHOA that aired in November of 2019, Noelle confided in her mother that she was sexually fluid. Noelle began to explore her sexuality while she was a freshman at Howard University.
During the coronavirus outbreak, some Bravo stars have stepped up to help others. Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel donated corona kits and 10,000 face masks. Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman’s spouse, Travis Hollman, decided to pay all of his employees their salaries, while they’re are quarantined at home.
Teddi Mellencamp, who is a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has pledged to help keep fans accountable by offering free online workouts. If I worked out regularly, that would be fantastic!
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!
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
There has been a lot of tension between Real Housewives of Atlanta stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore. Last season, NeNe referred to a pregnant Kenya as “a monster” at Cynthia Bailey’s product launch. And NeNe was furious that Kenya twirled on back to RHOA with a peach this season.
Since then, these two Atlanta Housewives have traded barbs in the press and on social media. Kenya has suggested that NeNe doesn’t bring anything to the show, and that she is being phased out. She also claimed that NeNe used her friendship with Wendy Williams to improve her image.
Real Housewives of Atlanta hasn’t shown NeNe Leakes very much this season until recently. Now we have seen her try to make amends with former bestie Cynthia Bailey. Awkward! I wasn’t sure how genuine the emotion was from NeNe. Kenya Moore said that NeNe doesn’t have any friends on RHOA, and only apologized because she had no other choice.
The person that NeNe had the most conflict with this season is, of course, Kenya. Now it looks like Kandi Burruss can add her name to that unfortunate list.
