Real Housewives Of Atlanta is really milking the everyone vs. NeNe Leakes scenario for all it’s worth – and I am so glad! NeNe has been prancing around like Marie Antoinette with her wigs piled high on her fake haughty head and it’s time for a new queen [hair flip!]. Or no queen, and just a equal well-connected cast of women who have fun, light drama, and interesting lives.
Seriously, though, I’m excited by the insurgency of the rest of the cast with their unwillingness to uphold the narrative that NeNe has immunity. She doesn’t nor should she. It’s more than about time that NeNe’s wig glue melted! NeNe is essentially mad for the sake of being mad (or maybe, benefit of the doubt: there’s some stuff we, the viewers, didn’t see).
After a [low-rated, boring ass] season of making everything about how NeNe is feeling and not upsetting the NeNe cart, NeNe’s now accusing everyone of turning on her. She expects Andy Cohen to support her to get the other women in line. But it’s not going to go that way. Not this time!
I don’t think that anyone can dispute that Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a difficult one for NeNe Leakes. She ordered her fellow Atlanta Housewives to stay out of her closet during a get-together (I’m looking at you, Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss!) Obviously, they didn’t, which enraged NeNe and cost a cameraman his shirt. And we still don’t know for sure if NeNe pulled off then-pregnant Porsha’s belt. NeNe has severed ties with most of her RHOA co-stars. She is actually very unhappy with former bestie Cynthia Bailey. Next time Cynthia had better give NeNe a copy of the guest list (if there is a next time!)
At Eva Marcille’s wedding, NeNe told Cynthia that she and husband Gregg Leakes had discussed separating. Gregg has been battling colon cancer, and the stress from his illness led to marital discord. Gregg took responsibility for his behavior and publicly apologized to NeNe. NeNe even wondered if Gregg getting cancer was karma for him cheating on her. It was hard to watch the couple bicker as they grappled with Gregg’s diagnosis.
NeNe Leakes has been dealing with a lot on Real Housewives of Atlanta this season. Her husband, Gregg Leakes is battling colon cancer, and NeNe has been having a hard time dealing with it. She also wonders if Gregg’s cancer diagnosis is some sort of karma. Then Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams decided to go into NeNe’s closet, which is apparently a big “No No!” An angry NeNe tore a camera man’s shirt and possibly pulled off Porsha’s belt. Again- what is in that closet?
It is safe to say that the warm sisterhood that NeNe and Cynthia Bailey shared is over, and Cynthia’s friendship contract is long gone. So, what is the cause of this drama? Former RHOA star Kenya Moore came to Cynthia’s wine cooler launch. And Kenya, who was very pregnant at the time, was just glowing when she twirled in. NeNe was not happy and called Kenya a “monster.”
Cynthia Bailey has had a whirlwind season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Viewers watched as her only child, Noelle Robinson began her first year of college. We’ve also seen Cynthia’s relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill develop into something serious. But while one relationship was taking off, another one crashed and burned.
NeNe Leakes and Cynthia have been friends since the early days of RHOA. As everyone knows, friendships have their fair share of ups and downs. Recently, anyone involved with NeNe experienced more of the downs, as she struggles to navigate her life in the shadow of Gregg Leakes’ cancer diagnosis. Sometimes though, enough is enough. And no matter how much you love someone or value their friendship, wading through toxicity on a regular basis just isn’t worth it.
After a season that got off to a super slow fashion-filled start, Real Housewives of Atlanta delivered with the finale episode. Actually, the season redeemed itself as soon as NeNe Leakes stormed into her closet and kicked out Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss. Oh, and she pulled off a cameraman’s shirt. And (allegedly) pregnant Porsha’s belt.
From that point on, the tension was thick and NeNe had more enemies than friends. There has been a lot of social media messiness and shade thrown ever since the reunion taping. NeNe actually unfollowed everyone from the show except for Marlo Hampton and Shamari DeVoe? What about her “little sis” Porsha and her other “little sis”
that she talks shit about Eva Marcille? Yep, they’re unfollowed. Even Tanya Sam, arguably the nicest person in the cast, got unfollowed. Then again, NeNe was coming for her all season, so it was just a matter of time. So what exactly went down at the reunion?
Age is certainly but a number judging by the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta!
I don’t know when and where this development occurred, since I don’t feel like we’ve heard a word about this all season, but suddenly Cynthia Bailey is launching a wine cooler collection with Seagrams – which seems like it was really a ruse to launch the return of Kenya Moore. I mean, who could hate on a heavily pregnant lady, right? Oh, wait, NeNe Leakes could!
I have been racking my brain about where NeNe and Kenya’s latest issues stemmed from. NeNe finally confirmed they started over a random twitter question posed to Kenya that was the Bravo equivalent of Marry, Shag, Kill, except it was “Call, Text, Delete” between Porsha Williams, Andy Cohen, or NeNe. Of course, Kenya picked NeNe as her “delete.” So THIS is the origin of the animosity.
After making her husband’s cancer diagnosis about her, NeNe Leakes continues to make everything possible about her. Again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 reunion trailer just dropped. And, for the most part, it’s NeNe against everyone else.
That makes sense since nothing happened for the first half of the season. Other than fashion-induced arguments. Then Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss went into NeNe’s closet and all hell broke loose. I’m actually surprised NeNe isn’t sitting on a barstool alone across from a long sofa full of Housewives. It seems like no one is on her side. Well, except for Marlo Hampton. And apparently Shamari DeVoe. They are the only two cast members that NeNe follows on Instagram after the reunion taping.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were treated to a front row seat for Porsha Williams’ entire pregnancy. But first, viewers saw Kandi Burruss express her skepticism about Porsha’s fiancé, Dennis McKinley, and their relationship moving much too fast. We all know that Kandi knows exactly what the streets are talking about! In the end, Kandi seems to have accepted Porsha’s man– even with all his scandalous tattoos of other’s ladies’ names.
Porsha documented so many amazing milestones in her pregnancy journey. She told her fellow RHOA Peaches about her wonderful news during the ladies’ Tokyo trip. Porsha and Dennis enjoyed a relaxing Bahamas “babymoon,” which is the last trip that an expectant couple takes before their baby’s arrival. And before sleep deprivation sets in.
