Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is about to experience all sorts of drama stemming from the girls’ trip to Charleston. In the most recent episode of RHOA, Kenya flew herself, her baby daughter Brooklyn Daly, a nanny, and new bestie LaToya Ali on a private jet.
The rest of the ladies took a bus with no air conditioning. Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams were plenty steamed when they found out that Kenya brought her baby along. Meanwhile, Kenya is dealing with marital strife.
Someone please tell the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to get their act together. Has there ever been a season of Atlanta this boring before? They’re even cutting out dramatic scenes that they advertised? What’s up with that? We all know the women are going on a trip to Charleston, so the potential for drama is there. Group scenes are key to a successful season, and this season has been lacking in that. FINALLY, the group will be all together.
With the entire group finally about to be in the same place, the true dynamics can finally begin. There’s been a few little side feuds so far, but now allegiances will be formed. Sides will be chosen. Kenya Moore is trying her hardest to stir the pot, but nobody is taking the bait. The biggest thing looming within the group is the upcoming StripperGate drama. In what ways will an alleged night with the stripper change the course of this season?
Welcome to another week of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta: Cynthia Bailey’s Wedding Edition. It’s starting to feel like this wedding is going to drag out all season. Between that and the lack of group scenes, this is a season on the verge of flopping. Thankfully Kenya Moore is working overtime to deliver the shade because if she wasn’t, what else would be going on? That’s a serious question. It’s cute that everyone is getting along, but SNOOZE.
Cynthia has a tall task ahead of her this week. She’s going to summon up the courage to tell her mother she’s inviting her alleged abusive father to her wedding. That’ll surely go over like a lead balloon. I’m sure her mother’s going to be thrilled with the prospect of seeing the man who hurt her so deeply at the wedding. It’s Cynthia’s big day, but is her mother going to find that to be a justifiable enough excuse?
Let’s breathe for a moment, and try to give this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta a chance. It’s not the most exciting season, nothing is really happening, but let’s have faith. We’ve seen a lot of Porsha Williams’ activism, but that’s really about it. There’s a brewing feud between Porsha and Kenya Moore. Hopefully that amps up the excitement factor of the season. GIVE US SOMETHING. ANYTHING.
These two have been carrying Real Housewives of Atlanta for many years, so they’ll be the ones to save it. Some of the last few seasons have been boring as well, but have StripperGate to look forward to! The other big topic of the group currently is the upcoming nuptials between Cynthia Bailey & Mike Hill. “CHILL” is taking over this season, and the wedding conversations and preparations are in every episode. 10/10/20 can’t come fast enough!
Drew Sidora is one of the newbies on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We learned about Drew’s marital troubles with her husband, Ralph Pittman. It seems that Ralph likes to disappear for days without telling Drew where he is. I give this marriage about three months before they split.
Naturally, Drew is despised by fellow peach-holder Kenya Moore because she is new. Kenya and LaToya Ali, the other addition to the RHOA cast, took an instant dislike to Drew at Cynthia Bailey’s wine testing party. In fact, Kenya called Drew a “stray.”
Hmm. For the penultimate episode of the season, this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County sure felt strange. And honestly, I have to admit it feels quite odd to be recapping tonight given the chaos that’s happened in Washington D.C. today. Over the last 15 years, the Housewives franchise has often provided a much-needed dose of escapism from the horrors and headlines of real life. Tonight in the O.C., however, provided no such relief from the reality of a mob storming the Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the democratic process. But alas, here we are. And the recapping must go on…
I think my biggest issue with this episode of Real Housewives of Orange County is that it really just boiled down to a series of one-on-one conversations. Because of coronavirus restrictions, the women haven’t been able to congregate together since the trip to Lake Arrowhead. And really, they haven’t all been together since before the pandemic shut down production. Right? Since the cast trip to Palm Springs? So basically they’re left to talk in pairs, or film with their kids, siblings and significant others. None of which is particularly interesting on its own without a main storyline driving the narrative.
This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we are seeing Porsha Williams on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement. She has come such a long way from earlier seasons and is honoring her grandfather Hosea Williams’ legacy in the Civil Rights movement.
In June, Porsha was at a peaceful protest march in Atlanta when tear gas was used on the crowd. Porsha was arrested. In August, the RHOA star was arrested again in Louisville, Kentucky during another peaceful protest.
This season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been unlike any other. The focus on the harsh realities of the world we live in has transformed the lens of the show. Watching Porsha Williams fight against racial injustice has been one of the biggest evolutions EVER. In addition to the protesting, the pandemic has also been front and center this season. Cynthia Bailey’s dream wedding is turning into a possible nightmare as a result.
One thing that’s been missing a bit is the group scenes between the women. We haven’t seen Porsha interact with any of the main cast in person yet which is highly unusual. It’s only a matter of time before she and Kenya Moore reignite their long rivalry and send us even closer to Strippergate. The newbies this season Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali have also brought a much needed new vibe to the series. HIGH KEY loving this season.
