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.
This tension between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore is just not that deep, yet it is brewing so strongly. Kenya claimed that her issues with NeNe stem from NeNe referring to Kenya’s daughter as a “buffalo” while she was pregnant. But, in all honesty, these two have been going back and forth with the petty gestures and it’s just not that serious.
Now, NeNe has a new theory about Kenya’s issues with her. She thinks that Kenya wants to be the new NeNe and Kim Zolciak on. Let’s be honest: very few Real Housewives relationships have provided us with as much entertainment value as Kim and NeNe did. They have the most hysterical dynamic when they get along and they really go for it with their insults when they are fighting. They just always entertain. In contrast, this Kenya vs. NeNe fight is just wearing us out. What are they even fighting about? Does anyone even know at this point?
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
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta Kenya Moore‘s marriage to Marc Daly officially exploded. Ironically at a charity event to raise up black men through positivity.
The only actual positive thing that happened last night was Eva Marcille‘s baby shower. Cynthia Bailey turned Eva’s friend Natalie’s backyard into a garden of paradise. It was a really lovely sunflower-themed event. Shockingly, everyone got along pretty well. Even Kenya and Nene Leakes!
Ever since Marc went over Kenya’s head to decree that NeNe is welcome in his circle, NeNe now feels she has some sort of trump card over Kenya. Nene has just been waiting for validation that she has extended multiple olive branches which Kenya has ignored. She sent multiple texts before filming started, for instance, but Kenya never responded. Obviously that’s cause NeNe has been on block! So has NeNe ever apologized for calling Kenya a buffalo while she was 9 months pregnant? Not that an insincere apology solves everything, as we will soon see with Tanya Sam and Kenya.
There were games and sports galore on last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but undoubtedly the thing to watch was Marc Daly and Kenya Moore‘s fascinating marriage! And Marc, he’s not playing around when it comes to the rules fo his wife!
When Marc is in the room, it’s literally the only thing anyone can focus on. Everyone circles around, watching, witnessing – it’s almost a religious experience to observe Kenya be de-twirled by Marc’s systematic demands. He’s a drill sergeant, and she’s at [licking] boot camp. Kenya is usually the one spinning everything up, ruling the scene with predictable unpredictable behavior, but when Marc is present she morphs into a shadow of her former self. This reversal of position is both electrifying and depressing.
While Kenya is wrestling with marital mishaps, Cynthia Bailey is wrestling with Open Mike’s revelations. Mike Hill has written a confessional memoir about his past as a philandering ladies man who eviscerated every relationship he’s ever been in. Also, he’s a terrible arguer. And Michelle Obama says couples need to learn how to argue. So now Cynthia wants couples counseling. Which means she did learn something after all from her terrible marriage to Peter Peter Bank Account Eater.
Last night Nene Leakes finally reappeared on Real Housewives Of Atlanta. She probably should’ve stayed camouflaged in season’s past, because I personally have had enough of her martyr act. The same goes for Kenya Moore! You two are only victims of your own arrogance, ladies! And in the middle of it all was Cynthia Bailey, playing the role of the ever-forgiving, ever-loving, ever-obliging friend.
After going way overboard in her supposed clawback to Tanya Sam when Kenya arrived to lunch and called her the c-word, then brought a burnt Cookie Lady to ‘expose’ Paul Judge as a cheater, Kenya still does not at all feel she owes Tanya an apology. Of course she doesn’t.
Kenya’s desperation is showing, and that slip is dingy and frayed! Just like her marriage, and without being able to brag about being a “Mrs” and finally having the perfect life, Kenya needs the relevance of RHOA. Unfortunately Tanya and Cynthia have been caught in the crossfire.
