Ok, I’m just going to say it – the return of Kenya Moore to Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a little slow given Kenya’s history of stirring the pot in the name of good TV. I’ve been watching Kenya since the beginning of her run on RHOA and it honestly felt like the show was lacking without her presence. But since her return, I was wondering where my “gone with the wind fabulous” housewife was hiding.
Instead of taking on her castmates, Kenya has been busy fussing over daughter Brooklyn Daly and crying about her
doomed marriage. But just when I was starting to think Kenya hung up her proverbial reunion megaphone, she came back with a vengeance when she decided to come for Eva Marcille during Sunday night’s episode.
These days, Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers are struggling to see the appeal of Marc Daly, the soon-to-be-ex/possible future love interest of Kenya Moore. I know that controversy sells and no one wants to watch a boring lovey, dovey couple on reality TV, but I feel downright uncomfortable when this man is on my TV screen.
Unfortunately for Kenya, Marc isn’t her only questionable significant other. Do you remember Matt Jordan? Kenya was dating him right before she got into that then-secret relationship with Marc. Matt seemed like a catch at first, but then shit hit the fan and he vandalized her property… in front of the Bravo cameras. I’ll never forget those heated arguments when Kenya just wanted Matt to leave her property. Well, he’s dating someone else and he didn’t leave the dramatic behavior behind.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were read, right and blue when Cynthia Bailey threw her annual “BaileyQue” (for the second consecutive year in a row). Of course, one person was glaringly absent from the guest list, and that would be Nene Leakes!
Since NeNe can’t find anyone else to film with her she has to make amends with her lackey, Marlo Hampton. NeNe has Marlo and her nephews over for lunch (to spill high tea?), and also drags blast from the unfortunate past, Yovanna along. You’ll remember Yovanna as “that bitch” who got super drunk at some weird boob-themed couples dinner and accused Eva Marcille of pretending not to remember her from college.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
The passive-aggressive feud between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey continues tonight on a new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yovanna “that bitch” Momplaisir (the woman Eva Marcille “didn’t remember” last season) comes to NeNe and Marlo Hampton with some tea about Cynthia. Apparently, Cynthia said it’s a “burden to be friends with NeNe” and that their friendship was toxic, which shocks absolutely no one. And, yes, NeNe is still filming her scenes
without any full-time cast members with Marlo. This has to end sooner or later, right? NeNe can’t film the whole season by herself.
Meanwhile, pretty much every other cast member
and Marlo gets together at Cynthia’s home for an event. Kenya Moore comes for Eva over those comments Eva made about why she didn’t bring her kids to baby Brooklyn Daly’s party. Before all that, Kenya re-gifted a doll that Eva got for Brooklyn by giving it to Porsha Williams for her daughter PJ. Am I the only one getting flashback to that bunny incident with Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna?
Marlo Hampton has been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta for years but has never snagged a coveted peach of her own. An RHOA producer attempted to answer why Marlo is still peach-less at BravoCon, but it was more of a non-answer.
There is no question that Marlo loves to spill the tea and is super shady. Last season Marlo, who prides herself on her fashionista status, schooled newbie Shamari DeVoe on her questionable fashion choices.
Reality TV lovers know that the best people to watch on screen are those that show us the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between about their lives. Some fan favorites, however, manage to get away without showing much about their personal lives. I’m looking at you, Cameron Eubanks.
Other Bravolebrities face harsh consequences for not showing parts of their personal relationships on screen. Remember what happened to Kenya Moore when she refused to let cameras film her wedding to Marc Daly? Now the tables have turned and Kenya is talking a whole lot about Marc this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is another reality star that seems to get away with leaving out personal parts of her story on screen. This is all about to change!
