Cynthia Bailey

Porsha Williams

Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured many milestones in Porsha Williams’ life. She dated, and became engaged to, the Hot Dog King, Dennis McKinley. The couple welcomed their precious daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, in March of 2019. Since the Bravo cameras didn’t want to miss out on this experience, the engaged duo also had a baby special leading up to Pilar’s birth.

Unfortunately, the status of Dennis and Porsha’s relationship is murky. Porsha faced some big financial problems (please pay your taxes, people!) Dennis was also the subject of cheating rumors, and Porsha unfollowed her fiancé on Instagram on two separate occasions. RHOA viewers are left hanging as to whether the engagement, and relationship, are done.

Kenya Moore

She’s back!!! Kenya Moore will be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 12. After a painfully boring Season 11 (up until the closet drama), Kenya is needed. Just don’t tell NeNe Leakes that.

NeNe flipped out during the Season 11 finale when Kenya showed up to Cynthia Bailey’s party. She accused Cynthia of scheming against her with Kandi Burruss in cahoots. Cynthia made some questionable hot mic comments. The last thing NeNe wanted was a Kenya Moore return, but here we are.

NeNe Leakes

I think it is safe to assume that the bad blood between Real Housewives of Atlanta friends co-stars NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey is rolling into Season 12. NeNe just confirmed that she signed her contract for the upcoming season, amid rumors that none of the other Atlanta ladies wanted to film with her.

I wonder why everyone is angry with NeNe? Is it because she threw Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams out of her closet? Or because she ripped a cameraman’s shirt who was trying to enter the same closet? There were rumors that NeNe tore off Porsha’s belt, too. NeNe also fat-shamed her supposed little sister just days after Porsha gave birth to her daughter.

Even Gregg Leakes, who is battling cancer, didn’t escape NeNe’s wrath. She mused about whether her husband was diagnosed with cancer as karma for cheating on her. Yup. She went there.

Months later, it’s still hard to get over how epic Andy Cohen’s baby shower was. Imagine all of those Real Housewives on a moving float. Plus cast members from Vanderpump Rules, Southern Charm, Below Deck, and Shahs of Sunset. That was the Bravo float for the Pride celebration in New York City this past weekend.

Andy gathered the most enthusiastic group of Bravolebrities. They dressed up in festive rainbow outfits. They danced, sang, and they had a few cocktails, of course.

.Luann de Lesseps

Life may not be a cabaret, but this season of Real Housewives of New York basically was.  Luann de Lesseps’ Countess and Friends show was the talk of the season. She was very proud of her ever-expanding act, but the other ladies were just tired of hearing about it.

During one episode, they joked about drinking every time the word “cabaret” was uttered.  That is a dangerous idea, especially since every single one of them mentioned it many times over. The cabaret madness all came to a head during Bethenny Frankel’s diatribe in Miami. Just like the rest of us, Lu has been watching the season. And, believe it or not, she knows exactly how she comes across. Luann broke down the fourth wall during an exclusive interview with Reality Tea.

NeNe Leakes

Lately it seems like Real Housewives of Atlanta has revolved around NeNe Leakes. She dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes’, cancer battle. She even implied that he was ill because karma was paying him back for cheating on her. Really, NeNe? That is about as low as you can go.

Unless, of course, you are throwing RHOA co-stars Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams out of your closet and ripping a camera man’s shirt in the process. NeNe later made fun of Porsha’s weight and body-shamed the new mom just days after she gave birth. That isn’t cool, NeNe.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes is having a tough year.  Her husband, Gregg Leakes, was battling cancer.  And battling NeNe.  Also battling NeNe?  The majority of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast and some of the crew.  But don’t feel sorry for NeNe, the majority of her battles are of her own making.  NeNe threatened to “f*uck up” a cameraman.  She physically assaulted Porsha Williams and another crew member in a closet. NeNe denounced her friendship with Cynthia Bailey. She fat-shamed Porsha approximately 6.2 seconds after Porsha expelled a human from her body.

Despite NeNe’s distasteful-bordering-on-criminal behavior, rumors have been swirling that she will receive a raise for appearing on RHOA Season 12.  In fact, word on the (Peachtree) street is that the entire cast has received raises.  It’s a good thing Ms. Leakes is a rich bitch, because it looks like she may not benefit from the alleged salary-hike.  It looks like Season 12 of RHOA is filming without her!

RHOA-NeNe-Leakes

Well isn’t this interesting. Season 12 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has gone into production. Minus one giant inflated ego NeNe Leakes. How could that be, you might ask! Why NeNe was essential last year when the world literally revolved around her life! And her closet… Last season, we watched the cast console NeNe over her various troubles. NeNe has openly blasted her former best friend and husband. In a particularly low-class moment, she fat-shamed Porsha Williams, two seconds after she gave birth. Those who might have felt sympathy for her, saw it fade away.

As she sat on the reunion stage, defending her coarse attitude throughout filming, she offered no apologies or feelings of remorse. NeNe also saw friendships go down the drain. Then news broke of an alleged salary increase for NeNe’s presence on the show, despite her unpleasant behavior. Now cameras are rolling for the next journey in Atlanta, but the rich bitch NeNe is nowhere to be found.
