For a long time, Real Housewives of Atlanta revolved around NeNe Leakes. This is because she threw fun shade. She had iconic clapbacks. She made us laugh However, the fun stopped. At some point, NeNe became super combative. She was the only one who didn’t get the memo that RHOA is supposed to be an ensemble show. NeNe really made everything about her.
She made her husband’s cancer diagnosis about her. She made Eva Marcille’s wedding about her. NeNe got on everyone’s last nerve. Meanwhile, Porsha Williams had a major come up. She went from being Phaedra Parks’ villainous accomplice to the star of the show. She got engaged, got pregnant, and got the fan support this past season. Oh, and who can forget that she also got thrown out of NeNe’s closet. Now, NeNe is coming for Porsha. Again.
Cynthia Bailey has had a whirlwind season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Viewers watched as her only child, Noelle Robinson began her first year of college. We’ve also seen Cynthia’s relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill develop into something serious. But while one relationship was taking off, another one crashed and burned.
NeNe Leakes and Cynthia have been friends since the early days of RHOA. As everyone knows, friendships have their fair share of ups and downs. Recently, anyone involved with NeNe experienced more of the downs, as she struggles to navigate her life in the shadow of Gregg Leakes’ cancer diagnosis. Sometimes though, enough is enough. And no matter how much you love someone or value their friendship, wading through toxicity on a regular basis just isn’t worth it.
After a season that got off to a super slow fashion-filled start, Real Housewives of Atlanta delivered with the finale episode. Actually, the season redeemed itself as soon as NeNe Leakes stormed into her closet and kicked out Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss. Oh, and she pulled off a cameraman’s shirt. And (allegedly) pregnant Porsha’s belt.
From that point on, the tension was thick and NeNe had more enemies than friends. There has been a lot of social media messiness and shade thrown ever since the reunion taping. NeNe actually unfollowed everyone from the show except for Marlo Hampton and Shamari DeVoe? What about her “little sis” Porsha and her other “little sis”
that she talks shit about Eva Marcille? Yep, they’re unfollowed. Even Tanya Sam, arguably the nicest person in the cast, got unfollowed. Then again, NeNe was coming for her all season, so it was just a matter of time. So what exactly went down at the reunion?
Real Housewives of Atlanta hasn’t been up to par this season, but there was some drama, at least. We saw Porsha Wiliams get engaged and unleash the news that she was expecting a baby with Dennis McKinley. NeNe Leakes threw a “Bye Wigs” party and then ripped off a camera man’s shirt because Porsha and Kandi Burruss went into NeNe’s closet. Really –what is in that closet?
Viewers watched Eva Marcille marry Michael Sterling in an extravagant wedding, but their honeymoon was short-lived. One of Eva’s bridesmaids, Seannita, was spreading some gossip about Eva and Michael’s financial situation. Of course, Seannita called Marlo Hampton to disclose this information. Nothing brings Marlo more joy than spilling tea about a co-star.
Age is certainly but a number judging by the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta!
I don’t know when and where this development occurred, since I don’t feel like we’ve heard a word about this all season, but suddenly Cynthia Bailey is launching a wine cooler collection with Seagrams – which seems like it was really a ruse to launch the return of Kenya Moore. I mean, who could hate on a heavily pregnant lady, right? Oh, wait, NeNe Leakes could!
I have been racking my brain about where NeNe and Kenya’s latest issues stemmed from. NeNe finally confirmed they started over a random twitter question posed to Kenya that was the Bravo equivalent of Marry, Shag, Kill, except it was “Call, Text, Delete” between Porsha Williams, Andy Cohen, or NeNe. Of course, Kenya picked NeNe as her “delete.” So THIS is the origin of the animosity.
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.
After making her husband’s cancer diagnosis about her, NeNe Leakes continues to make everything possible about her. Again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 reunion trailer just dropped. And, for the most part, it’s NeNe against everyone else.
That makes sense since nothing happened for the first half of the season. Other than fashion-induced arguments. Then Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss went into NeNe’s closet and all hell broke loose. I’m actually surprised NeNe isn’t sitting on a barstool alone across from a long sofa full of Housewives. It seems like no one is on her side. Well, except for Marlo Hampton. And apparently Shamari DeVoe. They are the only two cast members that NeNe follows on Instagram after the reunion taping.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were treated to a front row seat for Porsha Williams’ entire pregnancy. But first, viewers saw Kandi Burruss express her skepticism about Porsha’s fiancé, Dennis McKinley, and their relationship moving much too fast. We all know that Kandi knows exactly what the streets are talking about! In the end, Kandi seems to have accepted Porsha’s man– even with all his scandalous tattoos of other’s ladies’ names.
Porsha documented so many amazing milestones in her pregnancy journey. She told her fellow RHOA Peaches about her wonderful news during the ladies’ Tokyo trip. Porsha and Dennis enjoyed a relaxing Bahamas “babymoon,” which is the last trip that an expectant couple takes before their baby’s arrival. And before sleep deprivation sets in.
