NeNe Leakes has been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a minute now and she isn’t shy about telling you she’s an OG. Actually, NeNe isn’t shy about much of anything. Season 11 proved to be a trying time for NeNe and she wasted no time in making every single thing about herself. If a situation did not highlight her in some way, she made sure it did.
While living life in front of the cameras, MeMe grabbed the spotlight from Eva Marcille’s wedding. When pregnant Porsha Williams complained of back pain, NeNe let you know her pain was worse. When former cast mate Kenya Moore showed up at a party thrown by Cynthia Bailey, NeNe demoted Cynthia from friend to co-worker. And as we all know, husband Gregg Leakes is suffering from colon cancer – but NeNe’s suffering outweighed his by miles. Petty, it’s what’s for dinner! The only person this season who gave it right back to NeNe was Tokyo tour guide Aya, who doubled down on “being on time” and left NeNe in the dust when she was late for group activities. After a turbulent season of losing friends, NeNe is speaking about who should stay, who should go, and who should join the next journey of RHOA. I have an idea, can we give Aya a peach?
The O Come OG Faithful episode of Watch What Happens Live was everything that I wanted and more. Andy Cohen gathered OG Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, and Kyle Richards for a special holiday celebration.
Before he provoked them to spill some tea and throw some shade, Andy announced, “Just so you know, Luann [de Lesseps] is doing her cabaret show tonight. Lisa Vanderpump is opening a restaurant in Las Vegas and she’s there prepping. Bethenny [Frankel] is under the weather.” To be fair, Bethenny almost died when she was hospitalized with an allergic reaction. To say that she was “under the weather” is an understatement.
Even though Kenya Moore is not a Real Housewife anymore, she still manages to captivate the fandom. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum shared the first photo of her baby girl.
It’s a super cute photo of the baby’s little hand on top of her palm, but that’s it. She didn’t share her daughter’s face. We didn’t get a glimpse at a cute outfit. The only thing on my mind is Kenya’s Season 9 tagline: “I give the people what they want, and they always want more.” Yes they do and it’s likely that a lot of people will be checking her Instagram account for more photos.
Did you even vote if you didn’t post about it on social media? Yes, of course, but plenty of people used social media to encourage their followers to register, remind them to vote, and to share that they did vote in the midterm elections.
Some reality TV stars went to vote with their spouses. Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge shared a selfie with her husband Eddie Judge rocking their “I Voted” stickers. Real Housewives of Potomac couple Karen Huger and Ray Huger voted together as did fellow RHOP cast members Monique Samuels and Chris Samuels. Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute voted with her man Brian Carter.
Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kenya Moore is elated to be pregnant with her first child, but unfortunately it has not been an easy pregnancy for her. She just opened up about some scary medical issues on social media.
Kenya posted a photo of her swollen feet on Instagram. She shared, “I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia… I gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. This is NOT normal!” That sounds terrifying.
Even though Kenya Moore is no longer a Real Housewife, her baby shower was full of Bravolebrities. If only it was filmed for Real Housewives of Atlanta… Unfortunately, that did not happen, but at least Kenya and all of her guests took lots of photos to celebrate her first child with husband Marc Daly.
All of the guests were crowns, gowns, and some of them even branched out with the metallic makeup to welcome baby Daly with a fairytale/royal bridal shower. Well, the theme is a little bit unclear, but they were pretty much all rocking crowns and looking like queens.
Here’s a quickie photo post for your Wednesday afternoon. The Vanderpump Rules stars were out together again last night. This time they were hanging at Tom Tom! Tom Sandoval, Scheana Marie, James Kennedy, Jax Taylor and Tom Schwartz attended the Silent Pool Gin Launch Party, held at Tom Tom last night. Tom and Tom are wearing their work uniforms, but it’s a bit funny that they’re all color coordinated in this shot. And Scheana’s top is fitting better than that last outfit she was in…
We also have RuPaul celebrating the show’s huge Emmy wins.
And former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan was snapped out and about.
Check the pics out below!
We’re halfway through the week, y’all! To kick off this Wednesday morning, while we anxiously await Mary’s Below Deck Med recap, let’s see what our reality stars were up to. Above: it was an interesting guest list at the premiere of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars last night in West Hollywood! Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Scheana Marie and more turned out to celebrate – together. It’s not surprising to see Kim Richards and Brandi together, since Brandi recently shared that they still talk every day. And I know Scheana and Brandi have made amends, but it’s still a little weird to see them photographed together. Hopefully they kept the topic of podcasts off limits.
Also spotted last night: former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Claudia Jordan. She attended the premiere of Jennifer Garner’s new flick, “Peppermint”.
It was a busy night in West Hollywood, apparently. Variety held their annual “Power of Young Hollywood” party. Dancing with the Stars pro dancer and sometimes judge, Julianne Hough, was there, as well as Dance Moms alums Mackenzie and Maddie Ziegler.
