It looks likes the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta know how to keep the drama, and the paychecks, flowing. Season 11 of the show got off to a very slow start, but in the end, the season delivered. Eva Marcille finally tied the knot. NeNe Leakes dealt with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer and with marital strife. Thankfully, he is cancer-free now. Cynthia Bailey found love again with Mike Hill. Newbie Shamari DeVoe was accused of having a drinking problem by Marlo Hampton. Porsha Williams fell in love with Dennis McKinley, got engaged, and gave birth to daughter Pilar (and a baby spin-off special!)
In a shocking turn of events, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia because Cynthia did not advise NeNe that former RHOA star Kenya Moore might be at Cynthia’s party. NeNe, never one to be shy, referred to a glowing and pregnant Kenya as a “monster.” As for Cynthia, she looked shady about whether she knew Kenya was going to be at the party.
During Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss introduced us to her sexy burlesque/variety show “Welcome To The Dungeon.” Cynthia Bailey even made an appearance, which was incredibly awkward.
Kandi and mother-to-be Porsha Williams ventured into NeNe Leakes’ mystery closet, when they were told not to go there. A camera man’s shirt was ripped, and NeNe might have pulled off Porsha’s belt. We still don’t know what was in this closet. Bravo- we need to know!
The buzzword for the Real Housewives of New York this season has been “cabaret.” If Luann de Lesseps is not promoting her cabaret act, another cast member is talking about it. On this week’s episode, Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer and Bethenny Frankel even thought about using “cabaret” as the secret word to drink on at Luann’s new house. Which might not be so appropriate at the home of a newly recovering alcoholic. But, as they say, life is a cabaret!
Before Luann was an internationally famous cabaret star, she was just a simple girl trying to promote her music career and become the Autotune Queen of the Dance Charts. Although Luann had some past success with the song Money Can’t Buy You Class, she never really reached the heights of music superstardom. Now, Luann is launching a new single in her quest for fame and the music video for it is starring a few of our very own Housewives.
There was a one-woman wrecking crew on Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11, and her name was NeNe Leakes. She struggled with husband Gregg Leakes’ colon cancer diagnosis and his grouchiness. She torpedoed her long-time friendship with co-star Cynthia Bailey after Cynthia didn’t notify NeNe that RHOA alum Kenya Moore may be coming to Cynthia’s wine cooler launch. NeNe even called a pregnant Kenya “a monster.”
When NeNe held her “Bye Wig” party, guests Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams disobeyed NeNe and went into NeNe’s closet. An enraged Nene yanked a cameraman out of the closet, ripping his shirt. There is also some controversy over whether NeNe pulled off Porsha’s belt.
Is your wildest dream about to come true? Or is this your worst nightmare? Regardless of how you feel about Kenya Moore, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of gray area. It’s either love her or hate her with little in between. After Kenya left Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2017, she finally got her wish of becoming a mom. Daughter, Brooklyn Daly was born in November 2018. While we did not get to see a lot of Kenya’s pregnancy on film, she did show up to a Cynthia Bailey function during Season 11 of RHOA. Her mere presence caused NeNe Leakes to have another
big baby tantrum meltdown, which eventually lead to the demise of her friendship with Cynthia.
So, along with husband Marc Daly and her new baby, is Twirl ready to sign on the dotted line and come back? Viewers and current cast members seem to think a shakeup is necessary. Some want Phaedra Parks back. Some want NeNe to leaveleave. But for the out and proud Kenya fans, and the closet fans who won’t admit it, it looks like your time might be coming after all.
NeNe Leakes is short on friends in the current Real Housewives of Atlanta cast. However, she does seem to be on great terms with RHOA alum Phaedra Parks. NeNe said she wanted Phaedra to return. Several times.
Clearly, she’d take Phaedra over her ex-bestie Cynthia Bailey. NeNe denounced Cynthia to “coworker status” after the season finale antics. NeNe is also done with Friend of the Housewives Tanya Sam. Or is it the other way around? After giving Tanya hell all season long, their friendship fell apart. So what happens when NeNe, Phaedra, Cynthia, and Tanya all end up in the same place? They take pictures
to get attention. Separately, of course.
NeNe is the current record holder in the steep climb to Mount Petty, she will probably hold this title for a long time… Her antics were suffered by the entire RHOA cast, and viewers felt it as well. Is there anything else NeNe could do to tell the world she is a
bitter bitch woman on a mission to reign supreme in Atlanta? YUP.
Last season on the Real Housewives of Potomac, Karen Huger held a “press conference” and introduced the reality TV world to Matt Byars. Her costars didn’t know what to make of his presence there or in what capacity he worked for Karen. Matt seems to be a jack-of-all-trades functioning as Karen’s “assistant,” “part of her management team,” her “attorney,” and her “everything.”
Gizelle Bryant summed up her costars bewilderment. She said, “I have absolutely no idea who this person is sitting next to me.” Well, finally Gizelle and costars Monique Samuels, Robyn Dixon, Ashley Darby,Candiace Dillard, and viewers at large will get an answer.
