The Real Housewives of Atlanta is sure to have an interesting storyline thanks to Porsha Williams‘ new engagement. It feels like a fever dream since Porsha announced her engagement to Simon Guobadia after one month of dating. He got her a massive rock before his divorce with Falynn Guobadia was even finalized. And wasted no time getting his name tattooed on her neck, for some reason. Girl, is this some sort of identity crisis or something?
While Porsha Luther King has been celebrating her engagement and planning three weddings, everyone and their mother has been sharing some questionable accusations about their relationship. It started with a questionable timeline, cheating accusations and a whole lot of shade-throwing.
If you’re not Team Porsha, you’re against them. Just look at Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore, who definitely WON’T be receiving a save the date in the mail. The co-captain of Team Porsha is Shamea Morton, who we can blame for this whole relationship in the first place. Her only contribution to the RHOA universe as of late. Oh, and Gizelle Bryant from the Real Housewives of Potomac, who wants to find herself a man like Simon. Ladies, say it with me, THE BAR IS ON THE FLOOR. YOU DESERVE BETTER.
The success of a Real Housewives season is based on several factors, one of the biggest being the cast. The Real Housewives of Potomac has been so successful because the cast is truly an ensemble and they all bring their A-game year after year. And we saw last year on the Real Housewives of Orange County that no matter how hard you try, some ladies will just NOT work well together to make good TV. The rumblings around the current grandma-filled season of the Real Housewives of New York is also evidence of that, especially considering they’re a teeny tiny cast of 5 this year. And that’s clearly why Bravo is taking its time to figure out the next move for the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Last season of RHOA was a bit all over the place. The Bolo hype was real, but aside from that, the season felt disconnected and a little stale. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams will obviously never resolve their issues, and that as a storyline is played out. Newbie Drew Sidora and her bad wig was a bit of a bust. And Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey essentially brought NOTHING to the season, and 50 Cynt even had a whole ass wedding. And again I’m pleading, WHY IS Marlo Hampton STILL PEACHLESS? Make it make sense.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey was smitten with Mike Hill from the jump. They even had the cute nickname, “CHill.” She put it out in the universe that she wanted to marry Mike in 2020. The model was previously married to Peter Thomas, but they called it quits in 2016.
Mike asked for Cynthia’s hand in marriage on July 26, 2019 at the grand opening of the Bailey Wine Center. The RHOA star was shocked! You know what else was shocking? Finding out that Mike and his ex-wife used to watch the show, and Cynthia was their favorite Housewife. Wow.
Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Season 13 wasn’t all that. There are rumors that a cast shake-up may be in the works, and honestly, the franchise needs it.
Cynthia Bailey was involved in some of the action this season. Her dungeon-themed bachelorette party, which was thrown by RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss, featured stripper Bolo. And Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam were alleged to have spent some sexy private time with Bolo.
Looking back, Cynthia Bailey has had quite a run on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s filmed eleven seasons, two weddings (well, one officially filmed by Bravo) and a whole lot of drama in the NeNe Leakes department. She managed a spot alongside Kenya Moore on the upcoming Real Housewives All-Stars spinoff, which has to royally piss off NeNe. But looking back at Season 13, even though she got married to Mike Hill, 50 Cynt was on the sidelines most of the time. But her dungeon-themed bachelorette party did give us #Bologate, but that’s about it.
Whenever a Real Housewives city is in between seasons, it always sparks conversation about who will return. And when it comes to RHOA, it seems like it might be Cynthia’s time. She hasn’t had a lot of drama since Peter Thomas and NeNe exited her life. She started her Housewives’ career with a wedding and if she doesn’t return next season, she would have ended with one too. And she recently removed #RHOA from her Instagram bio, sparking those annual rumors that she’s headed on her way out.
After Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the cast is clearly due for a shake-up. Marlo Hampton needs a peach in her hand, to fix the “snoozefest” of a show. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams’ long-time feud has been overplayed. And we even had #Bologate and Prophet Lott, yet the season just didn’t hit like the good old days. But I gotta give the ATL ladies a break — the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on all Bravo shows. And it definitely wasn’t the worst — looking at you, Real Housewives of Orange County.
There’s been a lot of buzz about who will appear on RHOA Season 14. LaToya Ali may be one and done after her explosive debut. There are always rumors swirling that Phaedra Parks and/or Sheree Whitfield will make a return. Maybe even NeNe Leakes, never say never. And it’s obvious some of the girls just need to go.
Even though Cynthia Bailey went forward with her
superspreader wedding last year, she brought very little to the show. She really has been chilling on the sidelines since the days of Peter Thomas causing drama are behind her. Just look at the last reunion — she barely said a peep. Aside from defending having a huge wedding in the midst of a global pandemic, so big that even Bravo bailed on filming.
Does anyone even remember what happened on the latest season of Real Housewives of Atlanta? Ever since the latest Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia
chaos engagement news was dropped, it’s been almost completely band-aided over in my mind. Cheating and pregnancy and neck tattoos – oh my! I have no idea what to believe, but talk about the gossip heard ’round the world. Even the reigning-read-queen Eva Marcille chimed in on the debacle.
In case you’re experiencing a similar post-Atlanta amnesia, let me refresh your memory with in one word; Bolo. Michael “Bolo”Bolwaire was promised to flip the script on RHOA before the season even began. But who knew it would be literal and figurative? He stirred up the drama between the women, and in some cases, their men. More recently, the iconic stripper will be reading from a new script alongside former Housewife, Eva.
Housewives new and old, and from cities far and wide, have all weighed in on Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams’ recent
trainwreck of an engagement. To sum it up, P got engaged to Simon Guobadia, the almost ex-husband of her old friend Falynn Guobadia, after ONE MONTH of dating. The two moved quicker than quick, with Simon giving his new fiance a fat ring and P getting Simon’s name tattooed ON HER NECK. Not even Bravo producers can make up this complete display of nonsense, which includes cheating allegations, an eyebrow-raising timeline and a whole lot of haters.
Thanks to Shamea Morton’s matchmaking skills, we’ll likely have a Bravo special about one of Porsha’s THREE weddings, as she does seem to be a network darling. Andy Cohen says Porsha just loves love, but some people (Marlo Hampton) believe this entire relationship is one big red flag. Porsha hasn’t had the best luck in love in the past, and getting her old friend’s husband before they’ve signed their names on divorce papers is the ultimate betrayal of girl code. This storyline is already beating the drawn-out #BoloGate, and Bravo hasn’t even begun filming Season 14.
