NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes has said (many times) that Real Housewives of Atlanta is her show. Even so, she didn’t want to participate during Part 1 of the RHOA reunion. She just didn’t care to be there and just whined about how no one was there for her…. even though everyone was there for her all season long.

Let’s hope NeNe had an attitude adjustment for part two. Unfortunately, that’s just not likely, but it’s bound to be entertaining anyway.

NeNe Leakes

It’s been a rough season for NeNe Leakes on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s been caring for her husband Gregg Leakes as he struggles with colon cancer. And, clearly, she’s having a rough time. NeNe could even be projecting her situation onto the other ladies. In all honesty, that’s the most likely scenario.

She picked a fight with Tanya Sam over sunglasses during the Destin trip. She questioned Tanya’s relationship during the Tokyo trip. It seemed like maybe she just didn’t do well traveling, but she brought her ridiculous antics back to the ATL as well. She flipped out at Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss for going into her closet. She even ripped a shirt off a cameraman and allegedly pulled off Porsha’s belt. Yep, a pregnant woman’s belt. Then, she made Eva Marcille’s wedding about her by telling Cynthia Bailey that she and Gregg might separate. Now, she’s talking shit about her own man. Again.

Shamari

Nobody does shade like the Real Housewives of Atlanta. New Housewife Shamari DeVoe jumped headfirst into the shade pool when she joined the series this season. It didn’t take long for costars like Marlo Hampton to start shading her taste in fashion. Marlo considers herself the fashion queen of the group, making her perfect to “assist” Shamari in her choices. On a recent trip to Destin, FL Shamari refused to take advice from Marlo and her “Pirates of the Caribbean” style.

Shamari halfheartedly agreed to let Marlo style her just once. Unfortunately, things escalated later on the trip. The two ladies had a heated exchange on the trip which led to Marlo telling Shamari, “your momma the bitch”.  

Cynthia & Noelle

Happy New Year! The very last Real Housewives Of Atlanta of 2018 was an episode full of goodbyes, family, and rebirths but next week, once we’re firmly ensconced in 2019 the fighting resumes!

Cynthia Bailey is sending Noelle off to Howard University where she’ll be studying dentistry. Days before Noelle is supposed to leave the serenity of Lake Bailey, right in the middle of her going away party, she starts having a panic attack. All totally normal except for the cameras filming as Noelle as slumped on the ground in fetal position sobbing into Cynthia’s lap.

.Shamari DeVoe

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta the women were still in Destin, FL. With everyone mostly getting along, NeNe Leakes had to invent shady games to try and provoke arguments. Even that didn’t really work!

I can’t say I mind the dynamic of RHOA this season. I know people are already complaining that it’s boring and dry. But, we all saw NeNe attempting to create issues with newbie Tanya Sam whom she actually brought onto the show as her friend. However, so far I’m enjoying the light shade and goofy camaraderie. It actually reminds of early seasons, before people were twirling up messes and getting dragged across reunion stages by their mostly real hair. I’m not blaming Kenya Moore, I just think that a group of women who conceivably know each other, have longtime roots in the area, and mostly get along provides a lot more authentic drama.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Cast Angry When Eva Doesn’t Invite Them To Her Bachelorette Party During Tonight’s Episode

Instead of challenging the OG, Eva Marcille has gone out of her way to suck up to be friends with NeNe Leakes. She even asked NeNe to speak at her wedding reception, which I had no idea was even a thing. Isn’t that something a Maid of Honor or bridesmaid would do? Why not ask NeNe to be an actual member of the wedding party?

If she wants to be on NeNe’s good side, asking her for advice is a good move to make. However, Eva committed a major mistake when she did not invite NeNe to her bachelorette party and she posted about it on social media. That’s a total amateur move. Was it an error? Or was she low key trying to turn the snub into a Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline?
