Ok, I’m just going to say it – the return of Kenya Moore to Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a little slow given Kenya’s history of stirring the pot in the name of good TV. I’ve been watching Kenya since the beginning of her run on RHOA and it honestly felt like the show was lacking without her presence. But since her return, I was wondering where my “gone with the wind fabulous” housewife was hiding.
Instead of taking on her castmates, Kenya has been busy fussing over daughter Brooklyn Daly and crying about her
doomed marriage. But just when I was starting to think Kenya hung up her proverbial reunion megaphone, she came back with a vengeance when she decided to come for Eva Marcille during Sunday night’s episode.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were read, right and blue when Cynthia Bailey threw her annual “BaileyQue” (for the second consecutive year in a row). Of course, one person was glaringly absent from the guest list, and that would be Nene Leakes!
Since NeNe can’t find anyone else to film with her she has to make amends with her lackey, Marlo Hampton. NeNe has Marlo and her nephews over for lunch (to spill high tea?), and also drags blast from the unfortunate past, Yovanna along. You’ll remember Yovanna as “that bitch” who got super drunk at some weird boob-themed couples dinner and accused Eva Marcille of pretending not to remember her from college.
The passive-aggressive feud between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey continues tonight on a new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yovanna “that bitch” Momplaisir (the woman Eva Marcille “didn’t remember” last season) comes to NeNe and Marlo Hampton with some tea about Cynthia. Apparently, Cynthia said it’s a “burden to be friends with NeNe” and that their friendship was toxic, which shocks absolutely no one. And, yes, NeNe is still filming her scenes
without any full-time cast members with Marlo. This has to end sooner or later, right? NeNe can’t film the whole season by herself.
Meanwhile, pretty much every other cast member
and Marlo gets together at Cynthia’s home for an event. Kenya Moore comes for Eva over those comments Eva made about why she didn’t bring her kids to baby Brooklyn Daly’s party. Before all that, Kenya re-gifted a doll that Eva got for Brooklyn by giving it to Porsha Williams for her daughter PJ. Am I the only one getting flashback to that bunny incident with Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna?
Marlo Hampton has been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta for years but has never snagged a coveted peach of her own. An RHOA producer attempted to answer why Marlo is still peach-less at BravoCon, but it was more of a non-answer.
There is no question that Marlo loves to spill the tea and is super shady. Last season Marlo, who prides herself on her fashionista status, schooled newbie Shamari DeVoe on her questionable fashion choices.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta featured way, way too much of messy Marlo Hampton. Lady, worry about fixing the fit on your sequined jumpsuit, not about fixing Cynthia Bailey‘s friendship with Nene Leakes! Did I just agree with NeNe on something? Well, Fix it JESUS – save me from myself.
Otherwise, Kenya Moore‘s marriage to Marc Daly is in some major trouble – as if we didn’t know that already. And Porsha Williams decides against rekindling her relationship with Dennis McKinley.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta we finally caught up with Nene Leakes, who is now producing PSAs for the American Cancer Society about how hard it was for her to be married to a man who had cancer. I really just think Bravo should leave cancer alone, and I really also think the American Cancer Society needs to better in their vetting of spokespersons.
Now that Gregg Leakes is cancer-free and isn’t requiring NeNe to ‘care’ for him and uphold those wedding vows she took (twice!), she’s eager to rebuild their marriage. I’m frankly sick of Gregg being so phony. Look, I know he has to rely on NeNe for his living expenses because Senior Living Communities are depressing and don’t come with Bentleys, but honestly the way he goes overboard praising NeNe for her support and kindness while he was battling for his life, and it was frankly unbelievable.
