Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta officially brought the show back to its glory days, and surprisingly it is Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss who are stealing the show! At least for me anyway…
Ever since Mama Joyce disappeared into the streets, Kandi’s personal storylines have been as exciting as watching
Kaela and Todd talk/not-talk paint dry at OLG restaurants. Instead, Kandi has emerged as a sort of omnipotent narrator. A centrist who’s not going be anyone’s ally or enemy. Case in point, she meets Nene Leakes for lunch and has no problem questioning NeNe’s behavior in a way that is direct, but not confrontational.
Kandi is suspicious of NeNe’s invitation from the get-go. The last time they came face to face was at the reunion, where NeNe basically called her irrelevant. But, now, NeNe has been seeing a
crisis PR manager life coach. She is reformed so she’s trying to rebuild her career friendships. Basically, if no one on the actual cast will film with her, she has no place in the show. Which honestly that is why NeNe shouldn’t be ON the show.
I know that the hyped-up Real Housewives of Atlanta feud is NeNe Leakes vs. Cynthia Bailey. However, I have to be honest: the beef between Kenya Moore and Marlo Hampton is way more entertaining. The two of them are just so shady. They really have no boundaries when it comes to insulting each other.
On tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta episode, Marlo hosts an event for her wig line. Of course, has a wig line. Unfortunately, she chose the worst wig in her collection to wear that night. Still, that’s not the stand-out moment from the evening. Kenya barges in with a marching band full of musicians wearing Kenya Moore Haircare logo t-shirts, armed with her products, of course. It is just too ironic that Kenya has a line to take care of natural hair and Marlo has a collection full of fake hair. Their interests are just always on the opposite end of the spectrum, right?
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta were read, right and blue when Cynthia Bailey threw her annual “BaileyQue” (for the second consecutive year in a row). Of course, one person was glaringly absent from the guest list, and that would be Nene Leakes!
Since NeNe can’t find anyone else to film with her she has to make amends with her lackey, Marlo Hampton. NeNe has Marlo and her nephews over for lunch (to spill high tea?), and also drags blast from the unfortunate past, Yovanna along. You’ll remember Yovanna as “that bitch” who got super drunk at some weird boob-themed couples dinner and accused Eva Marcille of pretending not to remember her from college.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
The passive-aggressive feud between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey continues tonight on a new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yovanna “that bitch” Momplaisir (the woman Eva Marcille “didn’t remember” last season) comes to NeNe and Marlo Hampton with some tea about Cynthia. Apparently, Cynthia said it’s a “burden to be friends with NeNe” and that their friendship was toxic, which shocks absolutely no one. And, yes, NeNe is still filming her scenes
without any full-time cast members with Marlo. This has to end sooner or later, right? NeNe can’t film the whole season by herself.
Meanwhile, pretty much every other cast member
and Marlo gets together at Cynthia’s home for an event. Kenya Moore comes for Eva over those comments Eva made about why she didn’t bring her kids to baby Brooklyn Daly’s party. Before all that, Kenya re-gifted a doll that Eva got for Brooklyn by giving it to Porsha Williams for her daughter PJ. Am I the only one getting flashback to that bunny incident with Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna?
Marlo Hampton has been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta for years but has never snagged a coveted peach of her own. An RHOA producer attempted to answer why Marlo is still peach-less at BravoCon, but it was more of a non-answer.
There is no question that Marlo loves to spill the tea and is super shady. Last season Marlo, who prides herself on her fashionista status, schooled newbie Shamari DeVoe on her questionable fashion choices.
If Marlo Hampton ever got out of Bravo purgatory, have you wondered what her tag line would be? “I did my time, now I’m only on the run from the Fashion Police” or “The only escorting I do is taking my wallet to the bank, Google Marlo Hampton LLC”. That actually could be a fun hobby. Anytedturner, the Real Housewives of Atlanta have played host to Marlo for 800 years now. She first showed up in Season 4 as a potential foe for NeNe Leakes. But the two found themselves developing a friendship over the years and Marlo really never went away.
Here’s the thing about Marlo, she is good television. Whether you like her or not, she is the one who has zero qualms about confrontation or bringing up sensitive subject matter. At this point even Webster’s Dictionary has Marlo’s photo listed with the definition of “that bitch”, [th at bich]; noun; 1. Will check you 2. Will check you in Chanel. For YEARS viewers have wondered what the hold up is in giving Marlo a peach when other cast members
Cynthia Bailey barely have a storyline. RHOA producers addressed Marlo’s lack of fruit at BravoCon and shared an update on if she has a future with the show.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta featured way, way too much of messy Marlo Hampton. Lady, worry about fixing the fit on your sequined jumpsuit, not about fixing Cynthia Bailey‘s friendship with Nene Leakes! Did I just agree with NeNe on something? Well, Fix it JESUS – save me from myself.
Otherwise, Kenya Moore‘s marriage to Marc Daly is in some major trouble – as if we didn’t know that already. And Porsha Williams decides against rekindling her relationship with Dennis McKinley.
