StripperGate is FINALLY here. After months of speculation about what’s going to go down, we are finally close to some answers. This has been a slow and rocky season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, so the drama is welcomed. Anything that’s able to spice up this dry season sounds good right about now. Cynthia Bailey has no idea what she’s in store for with this bachelorette party.
Kandi Burruss is the perfect person to throw this type of event too. She always knows how to have a good time, and you know it’s going to get freaky. The question looming over everything though is just how freaky will things get? What is the limit for these ladies? How far is too far? Who is going to be caught with their pants down with a stripper? It’s time to let him out of his box. RELEASE BOLO.
It’s a tall task, but I promise we can get through this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The knowledge that StripperGate is around the corner is the only thing making this bearable. We know it’s going to cause an uproar within the group, but getting to that point is like watching paint dry. How can there be nine episodes so far this season where literally nothing ever happens?
Kenya Moore is making a run for the worst host of all time, and she doesn’t even care. These women have had enough of the double standards and hypocrisy from Ms. Twirl. Everyone’s irritated with her, and it’s only the second night. Marlo Hampton has finally had enough of the shady actions directed toward her, and she’s confronting the wicked witch of the ATL. Maybe, just MAYBE this will give us the fireworks we desperately deserve to watch.
When Real Housewives of Atlanta producers asked Kenya Moore if Drew Sidora’s husband Ralph Pittman was good looking during one of her confessional interviews, I could not help getting flashbacks to Kenya and Apollo Nida flirting it up back in the day. On every cast trip, they irked his then-wife Phaedra Parks. She was so annoyed that she wore that whole mesh bathing suit/ coverup ensemble.
They argued about this at multiple reunions. Apollo even claimed that Kenya came on to him off-camera when they were both in Los Angeles. Phaedra slut-shamed Kenya for years. Kenya disrespected Phaedra’s marriage for years. It was just such a messy situation, all around. Then, right before Apollo was set to go into prison he finally spit out the truth: he never saw Kenya in LA. He made that whole thing up. Regardless, the damage was done. Phaedra and Kenya’s animosity produced some iconic moments, but does she regret any of it?
Truth be told there isn’t much happening on Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, other than LaToya Ali doing the most, even though she’s just a part-time cast member. Meanwhile, full-time Housewife Drew Sidora only just started filming group scenes. Why is she a Housewife again? It’s certainly not for the hair, makeup, or fashions. What is she bringing to the table? Other than some yawn-inducing solo scenes and some shade from Kenya Moore.
During the last episode, the two newbies got into a squabble
for camera time. LaToya was extremely passive aggressive buying Drew a new wig. Drew returned the favor by giving her a signed photograph of herself, categorizing LaToya as a “fan.” And, LaToya continued to run her mouth on Twitter, while she was live-tweeting the episode.
Drew Sidora joined Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 13, and she is a solid addition to the cast. Drew has marital issues with her husband, Ralph Pittman. Ralph disappeared for three days with no communication. Drew needs a GPS tracker for her husband.
Drew is also dealing with shade from RHOA co-star Kenya Moore, and Kenya’s newbie mini-me, LaToya Ali. Kenya and LaToya insulted one of Drew’s wigs, and Kenya called Drew “a stray.” Ouch!
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a bit of a dud for me so far. While it’s long been one of my favorite franchises, this season has just been a tad slow. Cynthia Bailey’s second big wedding she has to have in the middle of a pandemic seems out of touch. Newbie Drew Sidora hasn’t really made her mark yet. The only thing that is keeping me hanging on is the trailer for what’s to come during this beach vacation.
But I’d like to skip the last episode and get to the good stuff please. The only thing going on with this vacation so far is the shade of room assignments. Oh and don’t forget the Hostess With The Leastest, Kenya Moore. She flew herself private to the trip, leaving the ladies to take an 8 hour bus. Then she brought her baby along and didn’t mention it to anyone else. And the final straw (for Kandi Burruss specifically) was when Kenya ordered herself a nice crab cake roll and fries and left her guests to eat some sad hummus and chips from the kitchen.
For the FIRST time this season all of the wives and friends will be together. Full group scenes are coming on this episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It may have taken eight episodes, but the moment’s finally here. Kenya Moore set the tone for the trip by arriving on a private jet and bringing her daughter. SHADY!
This will also be the first time Drew Sidora sees LaToya Ali since learning how she shaded her wig. In LaToya’s defense, the wig was a whole mess, but why is she spending so much energy shading her? They’ve met a total of one time, but LaToya couldn’t help herself. She’s a mini Kenya, and she might be just doing her mentor’s bidding by coming for Drew. What’s going to happen when Drew’s able to confront the insults face to face?
During the January 17, 2021 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, we saw the peaches come together for a wonderful cause. Kandi Burruss’ foundation, Kandi C.A.R.E.S, held a food drive to give out groceries to hundreds of single parent families. Good for you, Kandi!
Of course, Kandi’s RHOA co-stars came together to lend a hand. Porsha Williams, Tanya Sam, Kenya Moore, Marlo Hampton, and Cynthia Bailey showed up for the cause. Of course, Kenya organized how the ladies were filling the grocery bags and kept them moving. It may not have been her event, but Kenya was in her glory bossing everyone around.
