NeNe Leakes did not win any congeniality awards when Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 ended. In fact, she barely walked away from the reunion with any friends of all. Pretty much just Marlo Hampton was on her side.
Marlo and NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes supported her at the SWAGG Boutique opening in Maryland. No one else from RHOA showed up, which isn’t at all surprising. Then again, she is still following Shamari DeVoe on Instagram after her massive unfollowing spree. Oh, and NeNe did post a birthday shout out for Kandi Burruss. That’s especially weird since Kandi recently said that they were never really friends. However, NeNe did get some Real Housewives support. Just not from anyone in her own cast. Real Housewives of Potomac cast members attended the SWAGG opening.
It looks likes the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta know how to keep the drama, and the paychecks, flowing. Season 11 of the show got off to a very slow start, but in the end, the season delivered. Eva Marcille finally tied the knot. NeNe Leakes dealt with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer and with marital strife. Thankfully, he is cancer-free now. Cynthia Bailey found love again with Mike Hill. Newbie Shamari DeVoe was accused of having a drinking problem by Marlo Hampton. Porsha Williams fell in love with Dennis McKinley, got engaged, and gave birth to daughter Pilar (and a baby spin-off special!)
In a shocking turn of events, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia because Cynthia did not advise NeNe that former RHOA star Kenya Moore might be at Cynthia’s party. NeNe, never one to be shy, referred to a glowing and pregnant Kenya as a “monster.” As for Cynthia, she looked shady about whether she knew Kenya was going to be at the party.
During Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss introduced us to her sexy burlesque/variety show “Welcome To The Dungeon.” Cynthia Bailey even made an appearance, which was incredibly awkward.
Kandi and mother-to-be Porsha Williams ventured into NeNe Leakes’ mystery closet, when they were told not to go there. A camera man’s shirt was ripped, and NeNe might have pulled off Porsha’s belt. We still don’t know what was in this closet. Bravo- we need to know!
There was a one-woman wrecking crew on Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11, and her name was NeNe Leakes. She struggled with husband Gregg Leakes’ colon cancer diagnosis and his grouchiness. She torpedoed her long-time friendship with co-star Cynthia Bailey after Cynthia didn’t notify NeNe that RHOA alum Kenya Moore may be coming to Cynthia’s wine cooler launch. NeNe even called a pregnant Kenya “a monster.”
When NeNe held her “Bye Wig” party, guests Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams disobeyed NeNe and went into NeNe’s closet. An enraged Nene yanked a cameraman out of the closet, ripping his shirt. There is also some controversy over whether NeNe pulled off Porsha’s belt.
Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.
I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.
On Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss is all about business. She is always launching (and talking about) a new project. Does she ever take time to herself? Well, it is very rare, but it does happen.
Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker headed to Thailand to celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary. That is pretty much an eternity in reality TV years. They probably won’t be able to vacation on their own for a while since they are hoping to have another child via surrogate in the near future.
Marlo Hampton has pretty much been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta since she started popping up in Season 4. Marlo has always appeared as either a guest or Friend of the Housewives. Let’s face it –Marlo loves nothing more than shading a co-star or spilling all the tea. She never fails to bring the drama.
Marlo didn’t disappoint during Season 11 of RHOA. She was told by one of Eva Marcille’s bridesmaids that Eva and her husband didn’t live in the town home featured on the show, and that the couple has severe financial problems. She gifted Eva some wedding shade by telling NeNe Leakes and Tanya Sam all about it. Marlo also targeted newbie Shamari DeVoe. Marlo told Shamari (and everyone else in the world) that Shamari has a drinking problem. Of course, Shamari did get drunk and vomit all over Eva’s shoes and NeNe’s bathroom at NeNe’s party. Before that, Marlo tried to give Shamari some unsolicited and unwelcome fashion advice. As viewers know, Marlo prides herself on being a fashionista.
I would say that Marlo Hampton needs a glass of water. But that’s not what she’s thirsting for. It’s painfully obvious that the woman wants a peach. However, why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Marlo has been serving up so much tea on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Why give her that full-time cast member check if she’s willing to do so much as a Friend of the Show? She spent pretty much all of Season 11 bashing Eva Marcille, in between kissing NeNe Leakes’ ass, of course. Eva read Marlo to filth on that bus in Tokyo. However, she’s not done.
