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.
Is there anything that NeNe Leakes isn’t mad about these days? Despite claiming that she’s on a “spiritual journey”, every time we turn around, she’s got beef with someone. If you’ve been watching Real Housewives of Atlanta, you know NeNe made co-star Kenya Moore her target this season. NeNe claimed to want to make things right in Greece and for a second, I actually thought that was going to happen. But when Kenya wasn’t ready to receive it, NeNe threw popcorn at her, made fun of her marital issues and even spit in her direction. Now, #spitgate is still kind of confusing – NeNe says she didn’t do it but the episode sure looked like she did. Either way, it was a new low for the woman who chipped a camera man’s tooth when he tried to film inside her closet.
The one person NeNe doesn’t seem to be having issues with (so far) this season is Kandi Burruss. And why should she? Kandi is always the peacemaker and tries very hard to stay out of everyone’s drama. Now that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get pulled in, but she does try to steer clear. It’s hard to imagine anyone having a real issue with Kandi right now but leave it to NeNe to make it happen.
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.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama between Phaedra Parks and her now-ex Apollo Nida was downright riveting. I will never forget their heated confrontation in the garage right before Apollo went to prison. The tension was real!
I’ll also never forget how the other RHOA cast members got involved in Apollo’s messiness. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker confessed that they were keeping Apollo’s motorcycle in storage at their ATL mansion. Who could forget when Phaedra hit peak level petty and called the feds to their house? Legendary television.
On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies struggled to find balance in their various friendships as they opened up about painful pasts and future realities.
Suddenly Gregg and NeNe Leakes are in love. Is it because he now has a job being part of the American Cancer Society as an ambassador? Whatever the case, NeNe is just thrilled to see Gregg. She tells him this great tale of revisionist history about what happened in Greece.
NeNe was just this poor innocent bystander, trying to be kind and compassionate when “KEN” would not stop picking at her. NeNe conveniently leaves out the part of the story where she spit on Kenya Moore. Also she threw the popcorn cause girls gotta eat. According to Gregg, NeNe has extended so many olive branches to Kenya Moore that she practically gave her a whole orchard.
We did not get a new Real Housewives of Atlanta episode last week. Thankfully, the ladies are back tonight, ready to entertain us all while we socially distance at home.
Now that the RHOA cast is back from Greece, they have to face their problems back at home. Kenya Moore admits that she was “in the dark” about a lot of things in her marriage to Marc Daly. Even though she wants Marc to see their daughter, she says he’s not allowed in Moore Manor. Kenya also shares a really strange fun fact: she’s not allowed to speak to Marc’s parents. Unless Marc isn’t in touch with them himself, that’s a major red flag. Don’t you think? Have they ever met baby Brooklyn?
In addition to all of its other consequences, coronavirus has also derailed some of our favorite reality TV shows. Yes, we are all well-aware that this isn’t the most critical result of the virus, but this is a reality TV website, after all. Additionally, there are many people whose livelihoods depend on filming those shows. There are lots of crew members, hair and makeup artists, the restaurants that cater events. And, of course, there are the viewers who just want to watch their favorite (and least favorite) cast members in action.
In March, Andy Cohen confirmed that the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion was postponed due to coronavirus concerns. He has emphasized many times over that it was “postponed,” not canceled. After that, Andy tested positive for coronavirus. Understandably, he took some time to rest and recuperate. Additionally, Andy said that it just wouldn’t be the same to film the show via video chat. However, this pandemic is still happening. Businesses are shut down. People are isolated at home. We don’t truly know how long this will last. Could it be time to switch up the format and just give in to the video chat? Apparently, we will be getting the RHOA reunion sooner rather than later.
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.
