Kon’nichiwa! Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta landed in Tokyo, Japan. Where they squabbled over semantics and blatantly disrespected the country’s culture, you know – the usual Real Housewives travel antics!
By the way the title of this recap “Shitsureidesu ne” means “How Rude” in Japanese. Only fitting, right.
And certainly it’s not all fun and Cynthia Bailey‘s games in the land of the red sun, when Eva receives some devastating news that almost causes her to leave early. Meanwhile NeNe Leakes worries about leaving Gregg in the midst of his battle with cancer, and feels guilty about the struggles she’s experiencing as his caregiver. Basically the Nurse NeNe role isn’t working out – who would’ve thought?! (Sarcasm)
It makes sense though. She has a lot going on. She is in a new relationship, she’s pregnant, and she’s still infuriating Kandi Burruss. What’s everyone else doing? Oh, right: nothing. This season needs to end! Or the ladies need to step it up! They need a casting reboot, for sure. At this point, Porsha is carrying the show on her back.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode, Porsha Williams‘ relationship with Dennis McKinley was tested. Then, she turned to the professionals for help. In happier news, the women also learned they’re going to Japan to sightsee, enjoy amazing cuisine, and take in all the local culture… HA!
We pick up at Tanya Sam‘s house. Tanya is obviously in denial. She pretends she’s hosting a real dinner party, with her real friends. However, this is a Real Housewives Of Atlanta party with fake friends who are paid to hate each other. In this case, Kandi Burruss is threatening to leave before dinner is even served (and the trip to Japan announced) because Porsha called her fake.
The drama began when Kandi threw Todd Tucker a Michael Jordan themed 45th birthday party. Being benevolent (Or something like that!) Kandi invited Porsha and Dennis McKinley. And because parties are gathering places to bring people together from all sides of the spectrum Kandi also invited her “worker” Jami. Jami happens to be friends with Dennis’ ex Sherri. Sherri happens to be tattooed on Dennis’s body, and Jami happened to bring Sherri as her plus one. And then Sheri happened to loiter around Porsha and Dennis until Porsha walked away, then Sherri walked over to Dennis and gave him a hug and a kiss, just as Porsha happened to walk back over. Obviously Porsha got a little miffed and confronted Sherri. Wouldn’t you?
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.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been inching along. Unfortunately, there just hasn’t been much noticeable drama to report. But this is Eva Marcille’s first season holding a peach. She is ready to earn her spot on the show. So far, we have been watching the lead-up to her wedding and drama with her mother about the festivities. (Kandi Burrusshas been there, done that, and did it much better.)
So, Eva asked her “big sister” NeNe Leakes to speak at her wedding reception. Nevertheless, she did not invite NeNe to the bachelorette party. It seems like Eva is either overstating her close bond with Nene or didn’t invite her to stir up more drama for RHOA. At this point, Eva just seems desperate.
