The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast vacation in Greece continues tonight. And, apparently, it’s all about the ladies’ determination to get NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore to make up. First off, why would they want that? The drama is what keeps this show going. Second, that’s just never going to happen. Unless, NeNe and Kenya have a common enemy, of course. Other than that, there’s no way these two will ever be on the same side.
But, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss have no other storylines, so they’re gonna push this NeNe and Kenya reconciliation as much as they can. And I’m sure one of them is just gonna explode, which is probably what Cynthia and Kandi really we want it. We see you, girls. Oh, and Tanya Sam and Porsha Williams are also on this same quest of harmony. Please be more interesting, thank you. At least we have Marlo Hampton around. She’s never afraid to be her true messy self, none of this harmony nonsense.
You guys… I am so sorry for the delay in this Real Housewives Of Atlanta recap! I was not prepared, mentally and otherwise, for the Coronavirus quarantine/homeschooling curve. The true pandemic is going to be if all these parents can survive being trapped in the house with their kids trying to educate them using a PBS app and their own foggy remembrances of school. I think I’m going to have mine start by alphabetizing the pantry, then baking me cookies.
The next test will be if I can handle dealing with my husband for the next two weeks… But is any of that really worse than going on an international vacation with Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore? Those two are THE WORST. They are the Coronavirus of their friend group.
Real Housewives viewers have seen these people fall out over the most trivial things and remain friends over the most critical sins. Basically, there’s no logic when it comes to forecasting Real Housewives friendships.
Last year, NeNe Leakes fat shamed Porsha Williams, 6 days after she gave birth to her daughter PJ. In that same conversation,
a super jealous NeNe hated on Porsha’s three-part spin-off special. Then, they just squashed their beef during last night’s RHOA episode with zero lead-up. Porsha initiated the conversation and just wanted to return to their previous “big sis/lil sis” dynamic. Maybe she just wanted to make sure she was in NeNe’s good graces before NeNe went all out against Kenya Moore. I wouldn’t blame Porsha for trying to secure a safe position in the middle of that feud. Perhaps, she just genuinely missed being regarded as NeNe’s lil sis. Either way, I find it tough to understand, but that is none of my business.
Why does Eva Marcille have a peach, yet Marlo Hampton does not? Eva has zero storyline. Meanwhile, Marlo is bringing so much tea to the party. In essence, Eva’s scenes give the Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers the perfect opportunity to get up for a snack or bathroom break.
At the start of the current RHOA season, Eva was hanging onto some vague beef with NeNe Leakes. Eva was so mysterious about her living situation last season and she was mad at NeNe for wearing a microphone during a conversation. NeNe has done a lot of shady things on this show, but that really doesn’t belong on this list. Try again, Eva. This is child’s play in comparison to NeNe’s best work.
The writing has been on the wall since Kenya Moore‘s first instagram post announcing her impromptu marriage to Marc Daly, but they made it official last night when Real Housewives Of Atlanta reported on their split.
Following the he-man, woman-hater benefit Marc hosted where he took advantage of Kenya’s entire Atlanta social network (and used her as unpaid intern), then publicly insulted his wife, before demanding Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras stop filming him, Kenya tried to flee in an Uber. But Marc makes all the rules for what ‘Ken’ can do and what Ken can’t do is move unless Marc says move.
According to Kenya, Marc jumped into her uber and they proceeded to get in a screaming fight. Marc was so enraged and out of control the Uber driver kicked him out and Kenya banned him from returning to her home. As a domestic violence survivor, Kenya is all too aware of how these situations go and she absolutely made the right choice in creating distance between them when Marc was so angry
NeNe Leakes seems to be beefing with everyone these days. She hasn’t had the best showing on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s had it out with Kenya Moore, isn’t on speaking terms with Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey. As if that wasn’t enough, things have gone very south with her relationship with Eva Marcille since filming. It looks like the only people she is getting along with are Kandi Burruss and her ever-faithful friend, Marlo Hampton. How Marlo still doesn’t have a peach is beyond me but that is for another time and place.
The only other friend NeNe seemingly has in this whole mess of a season is none other than daytime gossip queen, Wendy Williams. In a recent episode of RHOA, we even saw Wendy counseling NeNe by phone as to how she should handle the women by showing them love and light or some crap like that. Sorry if I sound a bit skeptical but let’s face it, we are talking about NeNe here.
Despite being one of my favorite Housewives franchises, I have to admit that Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a little lackluster for me this season. Of course, they haven’t even had their big cast trip yet (I don’t even count the snooze fest that was Toronto) but the drama just seems kind of stale. NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore still hate each other, even with NeNe’s
fake attempts to mend fences. Same with Porsha Williams. It looks like those two will finally make amends at some point but is it for real this time? Now I did thoroughly enjoy Kenya bringing a whole marching band to Marlo Hampton’s wig event but that just wasn’t enough to sustain me over the next few episodes. Give me more interrupting marching bands or I don’t want it!
I think part of what is boring me is all the baby and pregnancy stuff. I find them almost as insufferable as weddings. I know, I know, fans love it but I personally think it’s a distraction from the REAL storylines. Those storylines are supposed to be well, the relationships between the women on the show. Sure, their lives are being featured but I personally don’t care to watch Eva Marcille eating ice chips and having false labor pains. Does that make me a bad person? Don’t answer that.
Real Housewives of Atlanta hasn’t shown NeNe Leakes very much this season until recently. Now we have seen her try to make amends with former bestie Cynthia Bailey. Awkward! I wasn’t sure how genuine the emotion was from NeNe. Kenya Moore said that NeNe doesn’t have any friends on RHOA, and only apologized because she had no other choice.
The person that NeNe had the most conflict with this season is, of course, Kenya. Now it looks like Kandi Burruss can add her name to that unfortunate list.
