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?
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?
