Cynthia Bailey has been having quite an eventful year. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star sent her daughter, Noelle Robinson, away for college. She survived the destruction of her friendship with long-time bestie NeNe Leakes. Cynthia invited Kenya Moore to an event without checking with NeNe first. Apparently, that is an unforgivable sin, and gets you demoted to co-worker status. Bloop! Cynthia claimed that she didn’t know Kenya was coming, but the damage was done.
In more positive news, the model made her relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill Instagram official in August of 2018 in honor of his birthday. In fact, Cynthia was so in love with her man that she predicted that Mike would propose sometime next year. Cynthia was ready for a lifetime of “CHill,” as their nickname suggests.
For the most part, the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 storylines have been kept under wraps, but you know these ladies can’t help sharing photos of themselves at cast events. The RHOA women headed to Toronto, Canada for Carnival. Am I the only one who had no idea this was a thing in Canada?
When I saw all the photos of the ladies who dressed in costume (i.e. pretty much everyone except NeNe Leakes), I just figured they were in Barbados. Well, NeNe was on the trip, even though she ended Season 11 on the outs with just about everyone except for Shamari DeVoe, who does not even appear to be a part of the cast for Season 12. She really started to grow on me when she threw up on Eva Marcille’s shoe. Such a shame! Well, at least NeNe has
forever peachless Marlo Hampton on her side.
Things move fast down south, despite the sweltering heat. Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley are no strangers to moving fast. Porsha’s relationship with Dennis went from 0 to 60 in record time, as we watched their love quickly evolve on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their courtship was brief before Porsha got pregnant with their first child, Pilar Jhena. Viewers watched Porsha’s own spinoff as she basked in the glow of baby planning. She also received a lovely proposal from Dennis.
Dennis and Porsha have not had smooth sailing. Dennis denied accusations of being unfaithful to his fiancé. During the scandal, Porsha unfollowed Dennis on social media and removed the massive rock on her ring finger. Dennis maintained his innocence, but had another incident. When attending an annual physician’s appointment, Dennis’ attempt to eat lunch was disrupted by a pair of handcuffs. Thankfully, this unfortunate turn of events didn’t damage Dennis’ game. Shortly thereafter the couple announced a reconciliation. Now, in true Dennis and Porsha fast fashion, the couple is ready for Porsha’s Having A Baby: Again.
Don’t come for her unless she sends for you!
Kenya Moore took to social media on Thursday, August 15 to call out one of her Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates for stabbing her in the back.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta was the “NeNe Leakes Show.” NeNe dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes, and his colon cancer diagnosis. She also shaded him by wondering if karma for cheating on her caused his illness.
When Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams ventured into her closet, NeNe promptly tried to remove them. NeNe ripped a cameraman’s shirt, and possibly pulled off Porsha’s belt. I’ll bet in Season 12 no one will even glance at any of NeNe’s closets.
Can’t we all just get along? Not in Hotlanta, baby. It’s a policy that seems to be working for NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s career is somewhat based on her negative attitude. NeNe iced out good friends Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams in the path of destruction she spearheaded last season. Triggered by Kenya Moore, NeNe managed to alienate most of her co-stars and challenge the core values of friendship.
After demoting Cynthia and Porsha, the cast had little to do with NeNe. Contract negotiations delayed her return in front of the cameras, but Season 12 finds NeNe standing by the wayside. It seems her only
minion ally is Marlo Hampton, who remains loyal to NeNe because it might lead to a peach. But now Marlo might be in the hot seat. After Cynthia found herself engaged to Mike Hill, the cast celebrated the occasion at a filmed venue. To no one’s surprise NeNe didn’t show, but minion Marlo did. Is Marlo’s wig next on NeNe’s chopping block? Needy NeNe is once again on the train of denial, she addresses her reaction to Cynthia’s engagement and Marlo’s thirstiness supposed betrayal.
Some people (especially NeNe Leakes) are not at all happy to see Kenya Moore’s return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I am not one of those people. Look, I know we were all pissed that Kenya ran off and got secretly married without a camera in sight. We know we weren’t really entitled to be there, but we should have been invited. It’s like when your friend from college who you haven’t talked to in 10 years gets married and you hear about it on Facebook. You probably had no reason to get an invite, and you definitely wouldn’t have traveled to Norman, Oklahoma to sit next to Aunt Bea and eat rubbery chicken. But you’re still indignant that you weren’t invited. Venting for a friend.
Kenya seems to be a true narcissist, with absolutely no regard for tact or social norms. Those character traits make for a terrible human, but a great reality television persona. So great that last season Kenya wasn’t even on the show, but, like, 2/3 of the reunion centered around her appearance at a party.
People have high hopes for Real Housewives of Atlanta, Season 12 is off and running. Most of us are still recovering from the trauma NeNe Leakes put us through. A certain cameraman is still recovering too. Last year, we saw Eva Marcille level up to peach holder, and she definitely wasn’t boring. Fans watched her get married and drop a verbal house on Marlo Hampton in Tokyo. There was also some scandal about her financial state, but most of these ladies
can’t pay their taxes have been down that road.
Eva is currently cooking her third child. This is great news for her
storyline family, as cameras are rolling while she prepares to welcome her new addition. Another new addition is Kenya Moore. She’s back and ready to party. Word on the street is, Eva is none too thrilled with Ms. Kenya. Is there drama looming oh you bet it is on the horizon for Eva? Kenya just might be the one new addition the pregnant Housewife could do without.
