Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta celebrated their 10 year anniversary by counting down their top ten moments. I cannot believe that I’ve had NeNe Leakes in my life longer than I’ve had my children in my life, but the Bravo universe is vast and all-encompassing!
I was expecting the Real Housewives themselves to weigh in on all the past drama and spill some behind-the-scenes secrets, similar to when other cities have done an anniversary. I was also expecting to get catch-ups from retired cast members like DeShawn Snow or Kim Fields, but instead we were just handed a ton of flashback footage to reminisce over. There were weddings, breakdowns (often those two things combined), walk-offs, shade wars, and vintage footage of Wigs with her Cigs.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziand her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
So much for going out on top. Kim Zolciak left Real Housewives of Atlantain the most controversial way she could. No one from the cast- including her girl Sheree Whitfield– had her back at the reunion. Even the reunion host Andy Cohencompletely shut her down when he said, “There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season. It was all combative.”
It’s fair to say that it wasn’t just NeNe who slammed the door shut on Kim’s Housewives career but Andy as well (Go Andy, it’s your birthday…). Kim showed up all season emotionally tardy for the party and positivity challenged, and also maybe her brain had been injected with Botox so it froze recollection of all her actions, words, and bad behaviors. How many times did Kim claim something didn’t happen then cut to footage of her saying some atrociously hideous lie?
Unfortunately, Eva Marcille didn’t pop up on Real Housewives of Atlanta until later on in Season 10, so we didn’t really “get to know” her very well, but it seems like there’s a possibility that she will hold up a peach next season.
The Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill attended an event in NYC: “Enchanted Evening” while her co-star Bethenny Frankel spoke at the Dress For Success Be Bold gala, alongside her daughter Brynn.
Other RHONY stars out and about included Sonja Morgan at the Swarovski Times Square Celebration and Dorinda Medley at the opening of Christian Siriano‘s New Store, The Curated NYC, along with John Mahdessian.
At this point the three-part Real Housewives of AtlantaSeason 10 reunion is shaping up to be everyone vs. Kim Zolciak. Sure, there were other topics discussed, but those were just child’s play in comparison to the animosity between Kim and NeNe Leakes.
Plus, it seems like everyone on this show (minus Sheree Whitfield) has it out for Kim. Even Cynthia Bailey– the least shady person in the cast- is upset with Kim after Kim told her to “just be quiet and look pretty” and insisted that she meant that as a compliment instead of an insult. Yeah right…
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion was going so well until Kim Zolciak showed up. I mean, people with feuds as old as their suddenly rejuvenated (and impregnated) ovaries were having civil discussions about those times they accused each other of being prostitutes to one-eyed Africans (do neither Porsha Williams nor Kenya Moore STILL not understand that ‘one-eyed’ referred to the African’s “D” – not that he’s an actual cyclops. Now you know KandiBurruss secretly wrote a “For The D” rap about that…). Then of course with all that peace, love, and Leave Will Alone, Kim Showed up.
Now that girl… Kim looked like she was wearing a Jessica Rabbit Halloween costume. And what on earth is Kroy Biermann doing with his life? He needs a Tabatha take over, because he’s apparently so depressed about being released from the NFL that he’s lost all purpose in life. It’s like the dude followed-up on a Craigslist post seeking personal assistant and wound up working for this crazy person who expects him to just follow around carrying her Solo cups and making sure all her outfits match said Solo cups – outfits he also has to pry her into using tweezers.
