WHAT A MOMENT. The Season 9 reunion of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has us shook even two years later. The reveal that Phaedra Parks was the shocking source was such a blindside to Kandi Burruss. She was the one who told Porsha Williams that Kandi wanted to drug and rape her. That’s such a massively bold thing to say about anyone.
To this day, the two have not spoken or attempted to repair their friendship. Honestly, given the nature of what went down, it likely will never happen. Surprisingly Nene Leakes seems to want Ms. Parks back for another season. Ulterior motives perhaps? Things could get uncomfortable fast if both Kandi and Phaedra are on the same season. However, maybe Kandi won’t be around much longer?
It’s not easy being a Real Housewife, and some of the “OG” Housewives have been through the wringer recently. Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has been dealing with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer. She also evicted Kandi Burruss and a then-pregnant Porsha Williams from her closet. NeNe ripped a camera man’s shirt and may have pulled off Porsha’s belt during the incident. During the reunion, it came out that a producer was allegedly injured by NeNe. That’s a lot of drama over a closet. In the end, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia invited former peach-holder Kenya Moore to a product launch.
On Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, this season is all about “puppy gate” and how Dorit Kemsley’s pup from Vanderpump Dogs ended up in a shelter. This saga has positioned Lisa Vanderpump against all her fellow Beverly Hills Housewives. On a personal level, Lisa has been struggling with the death of her brother. The epic show-down at Villa Rosa between Lisa, Lisa’s husband Ken Todd, and former bestie Kyle Richards was upsetting to watch.
Part 3 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion was like a loaded baked potato. So many morsels to digest!
So first what about Porsha Williams‘ belt!? We’re back in NeNe Leakes‘ closet of horrors where she didn’t want her Kim Zolciak wig shrine discovered so she used force, magical crystals, and Jedi Mind Tricks to keep all her friends out. Or maybe there were roaches in there – who knows?
What we do know is that at some point NeNe choked out a producer, scratched him, and had him pinned against the wall, but she doesn’t feel bad about it at all. This producer also suffered from a cracked (or lost?) tooth and had to go to the hospital for injuries. This was after NeNe reportedly shoved a pregnant Porsha and ripped a cameraman’s shirt trying to stop him from entering the closet. I don’t believe Porsha filmed audio of her yelling “I’m scared” after the fact.
Nene Leakes is clearly no longer interested in being friends with her fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is making that point VERY clear during the reunion. Nene has severed ties with almost the entire cast. She doesn’t want to be bothered whatsoever. She also does not seem to want to support any of her costars events anymore either.
Things got awkward during the reunion when Andy Cohen asked if Nene sent Porsha Williams a baby gift. It was evident that Nene did not forget to send one but that she did not WANT to send one. It’s crazy to see how tattered and ruined Nene’s relationships with the other women are. The most confusing thing, however, was Nene’s location during the baby shower. Where was Nene
Real Housewives of Atlanta, which is all about NeNe Leakes at this point, is airing the reunion episodes and all the dirty laundry between NeNe and the other ladies. It has been an eventful season for NeNe. Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams entered NeNe’s mystery closet after NeNe instructed them not to go in it. A furious NeNe pulled off a camera man’s shirt and may have pulled off Porsha’s belt. Maybe they should have ditched the glamorous ballroom and feisty koi fish in favor of filming the reunion in NeNe’s closet.
NeNe also has an issue with former bestie Cynthia Bailey inviting RHOA alum Kenya Moore to Cynthia’s wine cooler launch. All guest lists must be approved by NeNe so no “monsters” like Kenya can get in. Even NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes was not spared this season. Gregg is battling colon cancer, and recently completed his chemo treatments.
Well, I Am living for Porsha Williams on this Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion! And I am really LIVING for the return of the fan. I can only hope it was a gift from Kenya Moore to further piss NeNe Leakes off! Gone with the wind fabulous, but not forgotten from those sofas, sista!
Porsha is not having any of NeNe’s nonsense this reunion and for that I say: YES. Because NO to NeNe’s nonsense and awful attitude and rude unnecessary comments. Claiming you are having a breakdown is not an excuse to verbally and physically assault your friends and co-workers, NeNe! If NeNe has questions about this, she can run it by OSHA to see what they have to say about her workplace behavior.
But first – how are things between Porsha and Kandi Burruss who appeared to be getting along quite well in the latter half of this season as they came together for good against a common enemy (NeNe)? Well, Kandi and Porsha are still not so super good – meaning not following each other on Insta.
NeNe Leakes has said (many times) that Real Housewives of Atlanta is her show. Even so, she didn’t want to participate during Part 1 of the RHOA reunion. She just didn’t care to be there and just whined about how no one was there for her…. even though everyone was there for her all season long.
Let’s hope NeNe had an attitude adjustment for part two. Unfortunately, that’s just not likely, but it’s bound to be entertaining anyway.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta showed Cynthia Bailey hitting a lot of milestones. Cynthia sent her only child, Noelle Robinson, off to college. And she embraced a new love in her life, Mike Hill. In fact, Cynthia is predicting that the sportscaster will put a ring on it at some point next year.
Cynthia is surely feeling the “CHill” from her icy relationship with former bestie, NeNe Leakes. What could possibly make NeNe angrier than going in her closet? Not running your possible guest list by NeNe first. Cynthia invited RHOA alum Kenya Moore to her wine cooler launch party. At the party, NeNe muttered that Kenya is a “monster.” And NeNe believes that Cynthia should have given her a heads up that Kenya would be twirling around the party.
