RHOA-Porsha-Williams

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode, Porsha Williams‘ relationship with Dennis McKinley was tested. Then, she turned to the professionals for help. In happier news, the women also learned they’re going to Japan to sightsee, enjoy amazing cuisine, and take in all the local culture… HA!

We pick up at Tanya Sam‘s house. Tanya is obviously in denial. She pretends she’s hosting a real dinner party, with her real friends. However, this is a Real Housewives Of Atlanta party with fake friends who are paid to hate each other. In this case, Kandi Burruss is threatening to leave before dinner is even served (and the trip to Japan announced) because Porsha called her fake.

The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.

Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.

Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.

In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.

Stassi Schroeder, Erika Jayne, Kathryn Dennis, and Bethenny Frankel, struck a pose and showed off some chic outfits. Then there are other reality stars who cropped out their outfits and went for the selfies. Luann de Lesseps, D’Andra Simmons, LeeAnne Locken all posted selfies this week.

And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami.  Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Recap: Kandi Got 45 Problems And Porsha Is Number One!

Did she, or did she not?! Did Porsha Williams attack someone at Kandi Burruss‘ party, I mean because that’s all anyone talked about on last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

The drama began when Kandi threw Todd Tucker a Michael Jordan themed 45th birthday party. Being benevolent (Or something like that!) Kandi invited Porsha and Dennis McKinley. And because parties are gathering places to bring people together from all sides of the spectrum Kandi also invited her “worker” Jami. Jami happens to be friends with Dennis’ ex Sherri. Sherri happens to be tattooed on Dennis’s body, and Jami happened to bring Sherri as her plus one. And then Sheri happened to loiter around Porsha and Dennis until Porsha walked away, then Sherri walked over to Dennis and gave him a hug and a kiss, just as Porsha happened to walk back over. Obviously Porsha got a little miffed and confronted Sherri. Wouldn’t you?

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes Clarifies Her Comments about Tanya Sam’s Fashion Sense; Dishes on Marlo’s Makeover Attempt

If there is one thing that is glaringly obvious on Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11, is that the show needs some drama. Real drama. So far, we just have Porsha Williams hiding her pregnancy. Kandi Burruss mother returning to deny explain calling her son-in-law Todd Tucker, “a lemon.” Other than those (weak) plot lines, this group is going toe to toe about…fashion.

Now, I must say that the RHOA cast is always showing their style, whether it is from the 90’s or present day. (I support your fashion choices, Shamari DeVoe!) But all these fights about labels and fashion sense are messy. And not in a fun way.

Shamari and Ronnie perform a duet

Real Housewife of Atlanta fans were once again treated to a boring  girls’ trip when the ladies escaped to Destin, Florida. Most of the drama on this trip revolved around fashion. Oh and the speculation that Porsha Williams had a bun in the oven.

Marlo Hampton took it upon herself to give newbie Shamari DeVoe an early morning makeover. Shamari initially resisted Marlo’s aggressive fashion advice, she finally gave in and allowed Marlo to dress her in a bizarre outfit capped off with a gigantic hat. Marlo certainly didn’t do Shamari any favors with this ensemble.

Cynthia & Noelle

Happy New Year! The very last Real Housewives Of Atlanta of 2018 was an episode full of goodbyes, family, and rebirths but next week, once we’re firmly ensconced in 2019 the fighting resumes!

Cynthia Bailey is sending Noelle off to Howard University where she’ll be studying dentistry. Days before Noelle is supposed to leave the serenity of Lake Bailey, right in the middle of her going away party, she starts having a panic attack. All totally normal except for the cameras filming as Noelle as slumped on the ground in fetal position sobbing into Cynthia’s lap.

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta the women were still in Destin, FL. With everyone mostly getting along, NeNe Leakes had to invent shady games to try and provoke arguments. Even that didn’t really work!

I can’t say I mind the dynamic of RHOA this season. I know people are already complaining that it’s boring and dry. But, we all saw NeNe attempting to create issues with newbie Tanya Sam whom she actually brought onto the show as her friend. However, so far I’m enjoying the light shade and goofy camaraderie. It actually reminds of early seasons, before people were twirling up messes and getting dragged across reunion stages by their mostly real hair. I’m not blaming Kenya Moore, I just think that a group of women who conceivably know each other, have longtime roots in the area, and mostly get along provides a lot more authentic drama.

RHOA-Eva-Marcille

Eva Marcille has talked all season about how NeNe Leakes is “a big sister” to her. She even asked NeNe to speak at her wedding reception. Why would Eva not ask someone who is a major part of her wedding to attend the bachelorette party?

She invited Porsha Williams to the event, but none of the other Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members. Most of the women were not bothered by the snub (I don’t blame them). However, no one understood why Eva did not invite NeNe.
