Every cast needs a good overhaul every now and then. In my humble opinion, unless we have a golden cast full of storylines, these shake-ups should be on the semi-regular. But I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Real Housewives of Atlanta is my favorite franchise. Season after season, they deliver. Even when their storylines are meh, the cast is strong enough to entertain their audience.
But as much as I love my RHOA, I could always do without Miss Nene Leakes. I can’t even hide it, guys. I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me but I must speak my truth! Despite being an OG and central cast member, NeNe brings nothing to the table. She hasn’t since her glory days of Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield feuds. On top of that, she can’t stand to see any of her castmates succeed. For someone always talking about her own success, you would think she would be happy that there is enough to go around. Finally, she regularly refuses to film and storms off when things don’t go her way. See this past season’s reunion.
NeNe Leakes has been endorsing a Kim Zolciak comeback on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Understandably, Kim is hesitant to jump back in. She did not come across well (at all) during season 10. If you recall, she claimed, “racism isn’t all that real” during that reunion episode after feuding with Kenya Moore and NeNe.
Sure, she’s a mom of six who has mouths to feed and an RHOA paycheck can help with that. But, at least she has her own show with her family called Don’t Be Tardy, which just seems way more enjoyable to film.
Everything about 2020 has been unexpected. In the list of 2020 oddities is the revived friendship between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. They were bitter enemies on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion, and many times before that.
While viewers have seen NeNe and Kim enjoy some fun times together, for the most part, we’ve just seen them fighting and shading each other to filth. That’s why it’s kind of surprising that NeNe has been pushing for Kim to return to RHOA. She didn’t just respond to one random question naming an alum that she’s missed. NeNe has spoken out about this several times. She went live with Kim on Instagram. During that session (Yes, I watched. Judge me), NeNe mentioned multiple times that she wanted to start a YouTube venture with Kim.
We have had a lot of good things coming out of Netflix lately. I’ve always been a fan of the streaming service but they’ve really kicked it up a notch as of late. I binged Love is Blind and Tiger King like nobody’s business. Who hasn’t at this point? But now that those are over, I’m ready for more!
Luckily, Netflix has answered my prayers and a new binge-worthy show is on its way. As we previously reported, Too Hot to Handle is coming to your screens on April 17th. And in my opinion, it can’t come soon enough. Quarantine has been rough and a show about some hot singles who can’t have sex is really appealing right now. I’m guessing a lot of you out there might be stuck in the same situation. Too bad you’re not getting $100K for your efforts, ammirite?
Our hearts go out to Sheree Whitfield and her family members. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum has gone public with some heartbreaking news. Her mother, Thelma Ferguson, has been missing for weeks.
Sheree took to social media with the hope of widening the reach of the search for her mother. Her fellow RHOA OG’s NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak posted about Thelma’s disappearance in their Instagram Stories, encouraging anyone with information to come forward.
This tension between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore is just not that deep, yet it is brewing so strongly. Kenya claimed that her issues with NeNe stem from NeNe referring to Kenya’s daughter as a “buffalo” while she was pregnant. But, in all honesty, these two have been going back and forth with the petty gestures and it’s just not that serious.
Now, NeNe has a new theory about Kenya’s issues with her. She thinks that Kenya wants to be the new NeNe and Kim Zolciak on. Let’s be honest: very few Real Housewives relationships have provided us with as much entertainment value as Kim and NeNe did. They have the most hysterical dynamic when they get along and they really go for it with their insults when they are fighting. They just always entertain. In contrast, this Kenya vs. NeNe fight is just wearing us out. What are they even fighting about? Does anyone even know at this point?
The last time Real Housewives of Atlanta fans saw NeNe Leakes with Kim Zolciak was the Season 10 reunion. Pretty much the whole cast was against Kim. Even Andy Cohen told her that she brought “nothing positive” to RHOA that season. In the backstage footage, Kim even declared that “racism isn’t all that real.” And we all cringed in unison.
Later, Kim and NeNe confirmed that they were in touch and on better terms. Kim checked in while Gregg Leakes battled cancer. And now, these two are still cool, believe it or not. So does this mean Kim might come back to RHOA whenever they start filming Season 13? Believe it or not, NeNe would be down, but she doesn’t think the others would be on board.
Whether you think Lisa Vanderpump is the queen of reality TV or the best chess player since Bobby Fisher, you have to admit that she has a strong following. In all honesty, she might have the most loyal fandom out of all of the Real Housewives. Her biggest Stans support everything she does from her TV appearances to her restaurants to her charitable endeavors. Some of them even go all in to call out Lisa’s (perceived) enemies on social media, blowing up Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards‘ mentions whenever they slip up.
Basically, LVP is the influencer of all influencers, whether you love her or loathe her. And, let’s be honest, a lot of reality TV viewers do love her. She was a big part of the glamour that initially drew in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers. She has the most successful Real Housewives spin-off show, with Vanderpump Rules approaching its eighth season. Sorry, Kim Zolciak, Don’t Be Tardy isn’t the most exciting show on TV. She wasn’t even on half of RHOBH Season 9, yet she dominated the conversations during the season, the reunion taping… and in interviews and on social media.
