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.
I know that the hyped-up Real Housewives of Atlanta feud is NeNe Leakes vs. Cynthia Bailey. However, I have to be honest: the beef between Kenya Moore and Marlo Hampton is way more entertaining. The two of them are just so shady. They really have no boundaries when it comes to insulting each other.
On tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta episode, Marlo hosts an event for her wig line. Of course, has a wig line. Unfortunately, she chose the worst wig in her collection to wear that night. Still, that’s not the stand-out moment from the evening. Kenya barges in with a marching band full of musicians wearing Kenya Moore Haircare logo t-shirts, armed with her products, of course. It is just too ironic that Kenya has a line to take care of natural hair and Marlo has a collection full of fake hair. Their interests are just always on the opposite end of the spectrum, right?
Ok, I’m just going to say it – the return of Kenya Moore to Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a little slow given Kenya’s history of stirring the pot in the name of good TV. I’ve been watching Kenya since the beginning of her run on RHOA and it honestly felt like the show was lacking without her presence. But since her return, I was wondering where my “gone with the wind fabulous” housewife was hiding.
Instead of taking on her castmates, Kenya has been busy fussing over daughter Brooklyn Daly and crying about her
doomed marriage. But just when I was starting to think Kenya hung up her proverbial reunion megaphone, she came back with a vengeance when she decided to come for Eva Marcille during Sunday night’s episode.
Although things worked out great on The Brady Bunch, blending families isn’t always that easy. That’s why it’s so nice that Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill’s families have come together in such a harmonious way. Or at least that’s what I thought.
There are other people who said it was “inappropriate” that Cynthia’s adult daughter Noelle Robinson moved in with Mike in Los Angeles.
Alexis Bellino seemed to largely disappear after leaving the Real Housewives of Orange County after four seasons in 2013. Sure, she posted a lot on social media, but we didn’t hear much about her until her divorce from Jim Bellino last year. Since then, Alexis has been popping up on the semi-regular. Earlier this year, she made some waves when she posted a few Instagram pics with her new man, Andy Bohn. And Alexis was soon was faced with Andy’s estranged wife making a public plea for privacy for her family due to Alexis flaunting her new relationship on social media.
Alexis is currently starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition with her mother and is also making an upcoming appearance on Below Deck. Something tells me Alexis won’t be as sweet as Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey was when she was on the show! Alexis also appeared on RHOC this season due to her friendship with Emily Simpson. Apparently, all this attention wasn’t enough, as Alexis is now in a bit of a social media kerfuffle over comments she made about her household help on Instagram.
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.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
The passive-aggressive feud between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey continues tonight on a new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yovanna “that bitch” Momplaisir (the woman Eva Marcille “didn’t remember” last season) comes to NeNe and Marlo Hampton with some tea about Cynthia. Apparently, Cynthia said it’s a “burden to be friends with NeNe” and that their friendship was toxic, which shocks absolutely no one. And, yes, NeNe is still filming her scenes
without any full-time cast members with Marlo. This has to end sooner or later, right? NeNe can’t film the whole season by herself.
Meanwhile, pretty much every other cast member
and Marlo gets together at Cynthia’s home for an event. Kenya Moore comes for Eva over those comments Eva made about why she didn’t bring her kids to baby Brooklyn Daly’s party. Before all that, Kenya re-gifted a doll that Eva got for Brooklyn by giving it to Porsha Williams for her daughter PJ. Am I the only one getting flashback to that bunny incident with Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna?
