Well, as we learned on last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, a virtual reunions is no substitute for a live performance! Shutting the computer screen is far more anti-climatic than gathering up one’s ball gown and trouncing off to stage left in a fit if pique, but leave it to NeNe Leakes to find away to ‘close the door’ on anything she doesn’t want to hear! She tried, I’ll give her that!
The ladies were ostensibly responsible for all their own glam, although some like Eva Marcille admitted to having someone in to do their makeup. Andy Cohen was quick to call them out by mentioning that he saw people with masks and gloves in the background.
Eva should’ve saved that money for a dress that fit. Whatever she was wearing was making her cleavage look, as Porsha Williams put it, like her boobs were “social distancing.”
Tonight is the night! Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies are ready to recap the season and rehash the drama. The reunion may be virtual, but the drama seems pretty damn real. I’m not gonna lie, I’m really curious to see how it all come together under such unconventional circumstances.
The reunion brings us back to the start of the season: NeNe Leakes and her apology tour. Going into Season 12, NeNe basically had zero friends in the cast. Well, except for Marlo Hampton, but Marlo doesn’t even have a peach. During tonight’s reunion episode, Eva Marcille questions NeNe’s intentions with her apologies. Obviously, NeNe just wants to film this show, regardless of how many times she mentions sisterhood.
Being one of the original cast members of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes has been accused of many things. One might say she is a bad friend, one might say she’s a bad partner, one might say NeNe’s entitled, often volatile personality could be the result of trauma. Speculation aside, one cannot expect to be portrayed in a flattering light when 99% of your screen time involves yelling at another person for the better part of 12 years.
Last season we watched NeNe lose most of her friends and become “caregiver” for her husband suffering from cancer. NeNe chalked her coarse attitude up to the overwhelming stress and pressure of assisting Gregg Leakes through his medical crisis. But what if there were other issues looming about? Is there something more to NeNe’s crazy attitude fluctuations? Vivica A. Fox has a thought and she expressed it on a recent episode of RHOA alum Claudia Jordan’s show, and she did NOT hold back. Vivica, you might be in danger girl.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast filmed the season 12 reunion this past weekend via video chat. And the next day, NeNe Leakes shared all of the issues that she had with the day.
Yes, NeNe is an extremely polarizing figure on this show, but based on her account, it’s pretty clear she was sabotaged by production to be the odd one out during the taping. Of course, that is if her story is true. Let’s see what the OG housewife had to say. You be the judge.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes seems to have a bone to pick with everyone. Lately, NeNe and co-star Kandi Burruss have been beefing with each other all over social media and in interviews. First, NeNe was mad that Kandi shaded her in confessionals. Then, she took jabs at Kandi getting yet another spin-off series. And, let’s not forget NeNe completely taking over Kandi’s baby shower with her drama.
NeNe has also allegedly been at odds with frenemy Wendy Williams. How many feuds is NeNe in? Hold on–I’ll grab a calculator. There is a lot of NeNe-centered drama to keep track of these days.
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. I feel like this season just started, but I also feel like it’s been happening forever. . Maybe there was entirely too much repetitive drama and by that I mean Nene Leakes vs. Kenya Moore and Todd Tucker vs. Mama Joyce.
It all started out so promisingly with everyone excited about attending Kandi Burruss and Todd’s baby shower. Just kidding – no it didn’t! The episode opened with Kenya expending precious energy during an event for her hair care line by bashing NeNe as a bully with no friends.
TMZ just happened to be outside a strip mall salon in Atlanta where 5 of Kenya’s closest employees were gathered to witness the momentous day when she exploded a shampoo bottle and called it a product launch. The ‘paparazzi’ consisted of one lone guy holding a glorified HandyCam while simultaneously asking questions. He really didn’t care about the natural proteins in a KM Haircare product, but he did care about the latest installment in Life Of Leakes.
Everyone on Real Housewives Of Atlanta is struggling to find a balance in their relationships. For some, that means moving on, and for some, that means making concessions.
Kandi Burruss needs to stop focusing on checks and get a reality check about where her priorities should be. Todd Tucker is frustrated that she’s never around and has basically left him to raise their 3-year-old son, Ace, as a single dad.
Sure, someone has to earn money, but Kandi is obsessed! She’s basically temporarily moved to Chicago to film a TV show which counts as legal professional cheating because she gets to film steamy super graphic sex scenes with what I hope is a hot actor. Meanwhile, Todd is in Atlanta planning an over-the-top Hollywood themed baby shower to welcome their new baby.
Tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta episode is all about the couples. We have to witness NeNe Leakes and her man Gregg Leakes, getting into bed, in a scene that is very reminiscent of that infamous Eddie and Tamra Judge bathtub scene. They’re celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary, but they’re almost the only couple in a good place.
Of course, there’s bridezilla-to-be Cynthia Bailey, who has not stopped obsessing over her fiance Mike Hill. She’s contemplating “moving to LA.” Sure, girl. Are we supposed to believe she will leave RHOA for no reason? She would never do that unless she had a contract in her hand to be a Beverly Hills or Orange County Housewife. In other words, this storyline is straight-up bullshit. Next, please.
