We all know how much Cynthia Bailey wanted to marry Mike Hill. Even before he popped the question, she was talking about their upcoming wedding. She even created her own (over-used) hashtag #Chill, which was clever at first, but got played out after its excessive use.
Now, it’s official. Cynthia did something that no other Real Housewife has done before- she got married twice on the show. And, no, those ill-fated vow renewals don’t count. Hopefully, the day went better than when she married Peter Thomas. Her sister hid their marriage license, making it clear that both she and her mother disapproved of the union. Clearly, their instincts were on point with that one.
Usually, wedding-related storylines are simultaneously boring and annoying on Bravo shows. However, it sounds like Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party got pretty wild. Will we see that when Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for another season? That remains to be seen since they are still filming.
But, apparently, two cast members hooked up with each other and a male stripper at her party.
Many people have moved their 2020 wedding plans in response to the coronavirus pandemic, but most of those people don’t have a reality TV show to film. Now that NeNe Leakes is gone from Real Housewives of Atlanta, what storyline does Cynthia Bailey have other than getting married to Mike Hill?
Of course, the wedding is still on and it will be filmed. Duh, especially since she has cast members (and ex-cast members) in the bridal party. That’s a guarantee for ample screen time, and, most likely, a guarantee that we will be subjected to Cynthia’s pre-wedding events like a bridal shower and bachelorette party. Oh, boy.
NeNe Leakes is again exercising grace and humility upon her leave from Real Housewives of Atlanta – if we lived in Narnia. NeNe has never been silent if she feels someone has done her wrong, and her release from the show was clearly not her decision. After melting down when Wendy Williams appeared on Watch What Happens Live, NeNe went into rage tweet mode and declared war with both Andy Cohen and Wendy.
After alienating 99% of the cast (and crew) during her tenure on RHOA, NeNe morphed into that toddler at Target who bodily throws themselves on the floor in heart attack inducing hysterics when mom won’t buy another bucket of slime. She labeled Andy as a racist and ranted about Wendy posing as Tony Montana. NeNe advised the duo to stop talking about her and even threatened a lawsuit. What do you do when you want people to keep your name out of their mouths? Duh, make a video on YouTube.
DAMN, GINA! NeNe Leakes has
gone nuts come out swinging, but metaphorically this time. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star is on Twitter again and to say it’s a lot is an understatement. We get it, she’s emotional, but now NeNe is saying things that could really bite her in the ass. On the bright side, she’s already out of a job, so there’s not much left to lose. Dignity went out the door about five years ago.
Viewers have seen NeNe upset before. She kind of remains in a bothered state, so this is nothing new. This latest temper tantrum finds NeNe throwing jabs at (former?) friend, Wendy Williams and former boss, Andy Cohen. According to NeNe, Andy is racist and Wendy is under the influence of cocaine. Because clearly anything is easier than admitting you are wrong. Now, NeNe isn’t giving lessons on how to burn bridges. She’s giving lessons on completely incinerating them.
NeNe Leakes is feeling some type of way again. On the heels of being “let go” from Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe has taken to social media to
whine complain about the fact that her peach went bye-bye. Public social rants are common, especially when you lose your job, but NeNe is taking it next level. Viewers have become used to NeNe and her often caustic displays over the years. But while her antics have become legendary, they have also become intolerable.
NeNe has been given every opportunity to redeem herself. She could have taken responsibility for her violent outburst against a cameraman. She could have extended grace to her husband instead of reprimanding him publicly during his battle with cancer. Not spitting on Kenya Moore probably would have helped. Instead of accepting her fate and perhaps reflecting on what brought her here, NeNe is playing her favorite role. Martyr. This is all Bravo’s fault, you guys – because NeNe says so.
Minus Eva Marcille,
who got fired “quit’ the show, Real Housewives of Atlanta will most likely return with most of the same cast members who were on last season. Yes, we know that NeNe Leakes has been very publicly dragging out her contract negotiations, but she’s probably going to come back, because, well, as Sheree Whitfield said, she needs this check.
Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore all got their offer letters. Cynthia Bailey most likely did as well even though she’s only in Atlanta when she films and she has the most boring personal storyline every single season. Rumor has it, there are two women joining the cast for the upcoming season.
We all know that Eva Marcille
got fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta “left” Real Housewives of Atlanta “on her own to focus on other opportunities.” Meanwhile, NeNe Leakes, her rep, and the Bravo network said she’s not fired, but she’s always welcome to be on the show. So, why hasn’t she signed a contract? Most likely, she just wants more money or more screen time. Remember the beginning of the season when NeNe was nowhere to be found?
Porsha Williams happily accepted her offer letter for the next season. It’s unclear where Tanya Sam, Marlo Hampton, and Cynthia Bailey stand, but it doesn’t really add up that Cynthia is basically only in the ATL film when she spends all of her time in Los Angeles with her family. Plus, she has the most boring storylines. Why does she have a peach when most of us use her scenes as the perfect time to take a bathroom break? I’m not looking forward to watching a season centered around Cynthia’s wedding events.
