Marlo Hampton

Cynthia Bailey Pride Real Housewives Of Atlanta

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta we finally caught up with Nene Leakes, who is now producing PSAs for the American Cancer Society about how hard it was for her to be married to a man who had cancer. I really just think Bravo should leave cancer alone, and I really also think the American Cancer Society needs to better in their vetting of spokespersons.

Now that Gregg Leakes is cancer-free and isn’t requiring NeNe to ‘care’ for him and uphold those wedding vows she took (twice!), she’s eager to rebuild their marriage. I’m frankly sick of Gregg being so phony. Look, I know he has to rely on NeNe for his living expenses because Senior Living Communities are depressing and don’t come with Bentleys, but honestly the way he goes overboard praising NeNe for her support and kindness while he was battling for his life, and it was frankly unbelievable.

NeNe Leakes & Marlo Hampton

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 is just getting started, and I like what I am seeing so far. NeNe Leakes has been missing for the first two episodes, but she is about to make her glorious return.

Kenya Moore also made a glorious return, twirling back onto the franchise and snagging her peach after sitting out Season 11. NeNe wasn’t happy about this turn of events. In fact, NeNe destroyed her long-time friendship with Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia invited Kenya to her launch event.

Nene Leakes Denies That Kenya Moore Had Anything To Do With Her Delayed Return To Real Housewives Of Atlanta

It’s great to have Kenya Moore back on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We really needed her last season. Or at least that’s how I felt. NeNe Leakes, on the other hand, did not feel the same way. She was livid when Kenya showed up to Cynthia Bailey’s party during the Season 11 finale. NeNe and Cynthia even ended their friendship over that “betrayal.”

When it was announced that Kenya would return to RHOA, many fans eagerly anticipated some heated exchanges between the Housewives. Instead, we got some flashback clips and no new NeNe footage. NeNe has been absent from the first two episodes, but she will come face to face with Cynthia this week at the Pride parade. Eva Marcille, Marlo Hampton, and Cynthia’s daughter Noelle Robinson will be there too, but the marquee event is NeNe and Cynthia’s first encounter in months. With that said, I have to assume that there will be a lot of build up, followed by a cliffhanger at the end, to keep us on the edge of our seats until next week. I hope I’m wrong, but that’s just how I see this going based on my many years of Real Housewives viewership.

Porsha Williams Real Housewives Of Atlanta
Kenya Moore’s return last week on The Real Housewives of Atlanta was incredible. She never should have left and now she’s back and holding her rightful peach. The first episode was very BABY heavy, but the drama is coming. Seeing Porsha Williams and Kenya finally become friends is the greatest thing to ever happen to Atlanta. IT’S ABOUT TIME.

One thing that was crazy during the premiere was the absence of Nene LeakesWe now know the reason why, but it was still weird not seeing her. Nene’s feud with Kenya is a big selling point of this season, so hopefully, we see some of that soon. The first tension of the season is already brewing between Kenya and model Eva Marcille. Was it weird that Eva didn’t want her baby around Kenya? KINDA, but that’s classic Atlanta shade. 

Cynthia Bailey Real Housewives Of Atlanta

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 continues tonight with episode 2. And there’s still no sign of NeNe Leakes. At least the forever-peachless Marlo Hamptonmakes an appearance.

Instead, we have the aftermath of Kenya Moore’s Barbie Bash. In case anyone forgot, Sincerely Ward “just happened to be” at Kandi Burruss‘s restaurant while Kandi, Cynthia Bailey, and Eva Marcille were filming. Sincerely insisted that she wasn’t sleeping with Dennis McKinley, despite the claims on the blogs. In fact, she said that she had never even met Dennis. All of the ladies agreeed that this was good news, yet they hesitated to tell Porsha Williams, which makes zero sense to me. I get why Kandi wouldn’t want to. The last time she shared some Dennis-related tea, things didn’t go well. But since none of the ladies stepped up, Kenya did it for them and now Porsha knows what’s up. Unfortunately, that revelation didn’t solve any of her problems. She was still in relationship with an unfaithful man who wouldn’t stop sending her flowers.

Marlo Hampton “Bores” Kenya Moore; Kenya Calls For New Cast Members On Real Housewives Of Atlanta

It is Kenya Moore’s first season back since taking a brief departure from Real Housewives of Atlanta and she is already bored. Her return has been a thorn in the side of co-star NeNe Leakes and her marriage took a nosedive after filming the began. She has also reportedly had conflict with Eva Marcille, who has allegedly labeled Kenya both manipulative and a compulsive liar. So basically Kenya checks all the boxes for a reality television star.

That’s not to say it’s all been awkward. Kenya and her new baby have apparently been spending a lot of time with Porsha Williams and her daughter, Pilar Jehna. She’s also palling around with Cynthia Bailey, who is seemingly floating on a cloud of sex and wedding plans, since her engagement to Mike Hill. Aside from NeNe, another gal not pleased with Kenya’s revival is the non-peach holding Marlo Hampton. This is not unusual because Marlo is NeNe’s henchwoman only remaining friend on the show. Now Kenya is saying she’s tired of the same old faces, no matter how many new faces some ladies can buy. She wants to jazz up the cast and cancel Marlo while she’s at it.

Kenya Moore fires back at Kim Z

Some things never change on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kenya Moore made one appearance during the Season 11 finale at Cynthia Bailey’s product launch party, and NeNe Leakes flipped her wig. And then called Kenya a “monster.” It also caused NeNe to cancel her friendship contract with Cynthia.

For Season 12 of RHOA, Kenya twirled back to capture her peach, but she took a massive pay cut to do it. Kenya also recently announced the end of her two- year marriage to Marc Daly. Kenya was let go from the reality show after Season 10 because she didn’t want to document her marriage. The couple welcomed their sweet daughter, Brooklyn Doris, on November 4 of 2018.

Kenya confronts Phaedra

Kenya Moore has just twirled back to Real Housewives of Atlanta, and the drama is already in full swing. Kenya recently announced her split from her husband of two years, Marc Daly. The couple wed in 2017, and Kenya gave birth to their daughter, Brooklyn Doris, on November 4, 2018.

Kenya lost her peach after Season 10 of RHOA because she refused to show her life with her new husband on camera. Kenya has her spot back, but she took a large pay cut to return. She earned $1.5 million for appearing on Season 10. For Season 12, Kenya is pocketing $500,000.
