Oh, Florida! It must be great to live in a warm climate. Palm trees, the Atlantic Ocean, thumping social scene. Not much slows down a city like Miami, including a pandemic. Real Housewives of Miami used to be a thing and word on the street is, it might be a thing again. Recently, veteran ladies, Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria have popped up in the news because a highly contagious virus will absolutely not deter having birthday parties with other Housewives who visit from out of state.
Being immune to all pestilence is a gift not many of us have, because we aren’t the damn Avengers, but if you take a gander at certain Bravolebrities you would assume they are exempt from diseases. Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps has come under fire for traveling to Miami to party without a mask, but according to her, “precautions were taken“. Now RHOM is back in the media but not for a premier date. Another star has fallen victim to being inconvenienced by Covid.
2020 has been crazy. So many things are changing rapidly and it’s hard to stay grounded. But if there is one thing that we can look to for certainty, it’s that someone in Kim Zolciak’s family will be getting fillers. Or surgery. Or using massive amounts of filtering on social media.
Even so, it’s hard to keep up with the low budget Kardashians, despite their constant Instagram presence. We have
been blessed not seen any recent Don’t Be Tardy content, and for that, I am thankful. Although as a side note – season 8 is coming soon. So we aren’t totally off the hook. But in anticipation of the new season, Brielle Biermann has popped up to talk about, what else? Her looks.
Wowowowow. These Real Housewives of New York reunion episodes are already making me question if I can live without these ladies in the coming months. I mean, except for Elyse Slaine who, despite her best efforts, was a total bust. Rest easy. She won’t be back.
After Bethenny Frankel dipped the night before filming for season 12 began, I think we’re all on edge about next year. So far we know that Dorinda Medley is “taking a pause.” Whatever that means. Better yet, Leah McSweeney will be returning. She may have secured a well-deserved pay raise too. From the sounds of it, we will be seeing her for season 13 with some heavy pockets and…a new face?
I hate to admit this, but I actually teared up when Kroy Biermann and Kim Zolciak got married. Not because of their love, necessarily, but the part that really got me all choked up was when Kroy gave rings to Kim’s daughters from a previous relationship when he did his vows.
Since then, he adopted Ariana and Brielle Biermann as his own daughters and they changed their last name to his. Yeah, I know that everything Zolciak is very polarizing, but I really thought that was a beautiful thing when he decided to become a father to Kim’s kids.
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?
