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.
Turning 18 is a milestone for most teens. They can vote, get their driver’s license (depending on the state laws, of course), go off to war, start college, and… get their lips done. Wait. What? That wasn’t on your list of milestones? Mine neither.
Well, Kim Zolciak recently revealed that it was on her daughter Ariana Biermann’s. Of course, doing this is totally her prerogative. It’s just not a typical rite of passage for teens. Then again, this is the norm on Don’t Be Tardy.
These days, NeNe Leakes talks about how much money she has almost as much as she shades Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey while pretending to be unbothered by their existence. However, that wasn’t always the case. During the beginning seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes was the breadwinner in their relationship. However, that changed when RHOA’s popularity skyrocketed. NeNe’s one-liners and her feuds with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield gave her a lot of notoriety…. and the paycheck to buy much better wigs. Well, sometimes anyway. We all know that wig selection isn’t exactly NeNe’s biggest strength, no matter how high her budget is.
Anyway, in a recent interview, NeNe spilled some of the details about the start of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I will never forget Kim texting NeNe “you are a low budget bitch” back in Season 1. But, you know what: Kim wasn’t too far off about the financial situation. The salaries on the show were not nearly as high as they are today.
The true origin of the Kim Zolciak and Kenya Moore feud is just so unclear. Kim left Real Housewives of Atlanta in the middle of Kenya’s first season. Then, she reappeared at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party and confronted Kenya for going into the still-unfinished basement. Kenya told her she looked like a duck because of her plumped-up lips, which was a fair comparison in all honesty.
The next season, things really came to a head at NeNe Leakes‘ white party. The partygoers all looked angelic in their all-white outfits, but Kenya and Kim did not behave like angels. At all. Kim questioned the legitimacy of Kenya’s then-secret marriage to Marc Daly. Then, Kenya accused Kim of pimping out her daughter Brielle Biermann for John Legend tickets. Never forget that now-deleted tweet Brielle supposedly wrote from Kim’s account asking Chrissy Teigen who Brielle has to “blow” for concert tickets. Kenya and NeNe were actually on the same side (for once) when they put Kim in her place during the Season 10 RHOA reunion. You remember that one, right? Andy Cohen told Kim that she brought “nothing positive” to the show and Kim said that racism wasn’t real. That was the end of Kim’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta, for now anyway. However, that hasn’t stopped her from commenting on the show’s cast members.
We certainly love our Bravo. And the fandom following each and every show is passionate and loyal.
Well, the opportunity of the life time is coming. Move over, Comicon. BravoCon is about to sweep the nation. And our fans are even more intense!
