I’m not gonna lie, it blows my mind that Cynthia Bailey has been a Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member for this long. Minus the times when she’s beefing with NeNe Leakes, the woman usually has zero storyline. Her thirst to get engaged and her “annual” events that only happen one time have really worn thin.
Yeah, the woman has knockout confessional looks, but that’s about it. What does Cynthia really bring to this show? Other than some slight delusion, I mean. Listen, I know I’m hating right now, but I do not actually dislike Cynthia. There’s no reason to, but it just truly baffles me that Cynthia is holding a peach and Marlo Hampton never has. Marlo brings it in every single scene. She’s always turning up and turning it out. And then there’s Cynthia, quietly collecting her Bravo paycheck. Yawn.
Even though the coronavirus outbreak has postponed the filming of the Season 12 reunion of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the drama hasn’t stopped. During the cast trip to Greece, viewers saw another chapter unfold in the on-going war between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore. NeNe did (or almost) spit on Kenya. Stay classy, NeNe.
After NeNe’s leopard brunch, RHOA star Kandi Burruss made a joke about NeNe’s large entourage of friends that no one knew. Kandi said that perhaps those ladies were invited in case no other guests came. Oh, the shade, Kandi!
NeNe Leakes was absent for a few episodes this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But, even when she wasn’t around, she was the main topic of conversation. NeNe brings the drama even when she’s absent.
In contrast, there’s Kandi Burruss, who has zero drama. She’s just busy living her best life and making money. She made one joke wondering who the women were at the leopard print brunch that NeNe hosted, you know the one that she was 2.5 hours late for. They’ve never appeared on the show before, so we were all wondering who they were. Well, NeNe did not find Kandi’s comment humorous and they got into a fight in the comments section on Instagram.
What an epic fail that we had the Real Housewives Of Atlanta visit Lindsay Lohan‘s beach club and we don’t get a Lohan sighting or any of the requisite drama?! Instead, we had to pretend that Dina Lohan is some famous friend of Kandi Burruss‘ and the ladies were doing Dina a favor by visiting her daughter’s little beachside bar. But a Lohan was not present. Nor was there a mention of Lindsay’s failed reality show.
So the women are in Greece trying to figure out how goddesses behave. In fairness to NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore, the original Greek goddesses were a pretty vengeful and petty bunch, ergo probably not above spitting or questioning the moistness level of one’s kitty. Still Nene Leakes is no goddess, and as a mortal her behavior was APPALLING.
Yes, Kenya is a shady bitch who’s nasty-nice and pushes buttons that are way below the belt, but spitting on someone and threatening to assault them as NeNe was doing – NEWP, NEWP, NEWP!
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.
That reconciliation between Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes came out of nowhere. The two of them have barely spoken this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Then, Porsha pulls NeNe aside to make up, even though NeNe is the woman who fat-shamed Porsha six days after she gave birth and went crazy on Porsha in her bedroom closet.
How did this happen? Was it even sincere? Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore don’t think so, which isn’t a surprise. Well, the Kenya part isn’t a surprise. Kandi was the first RHOA cast member to be cool with NeNe (when no one else wanted to film with her) this season and she’s stopped shading Porsha, well, until now that is.
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.
