After Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the cast is clearly due for a shake-up. Marlo Hampton needs a peach in her hand, to fix the “snoozefest” of a show. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams’ long-time feud has been overplayed. And we even had #Bologate and Prophet Lott, yet the season just didn’t hit like the good old days. But I gotta give the ATL ladies a break — the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on all Bravo shows. And it definitely wasn’t the worst — looking at you, Real Housewives of Orange County.
There’s been a lot of buzz about who will appear on RHOA Season 14. LaToya Ali may be one and done after her explosive debut. There are always rumors swirling that Phaedra Parks and/or Sheree Whitfield will make a return. Maybe even NeNe Leakes, never say never. And it’s obvious some of the girls just need to go.
Even though Cynthia Bailey went forward with her
superspreader wedding last year, she brought very little to the show. She really has been chilling on the sidelines since the days of Peter Thomas causing drama are behind her. Just look at the last reunion — she barely said a peep. Aside from defending having a huge wedding in the midst of a global pandemic, so big that even Bravo bailed on filming.
Does anyone even remember what happened on the latest season of Real Housewives of Atlanta? Ever since the latest Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia
chaos engagement news was dropped, it’s been almost completely band-aided over in my mind. Cheating and pregnancy and neck tattoos – oh my! I have no idea what to believe, but talk about the gossip heard ’round the world. Even the reigning-read-queen Eva Marcille chimed in on the debacle.
In case you’re experiencing a similar post-Atlanta amnesia, let me refresh your memory with in one word; Bolo. Michael “Bolo”Bolwaire was promised to flip the script on RHOA before the season even began. But who knew it would be literal and figurative? He stirred up the drama between the women, and in some cases, their men. More recently, the iconic stripper will be reading from a new script alongside former Housewife, Eva.
Housewives new and old, and from cities far and wide, have all weighed in on Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams’ recent
trainwreck of an engagement. To sum it up, P got engaged to Simon Guobadia, the almost ex-husband of her old friend Falynn Guobadia, after ONE MONTH of dating. The two moved quicker than quick, with Simon giving his new fiance a fat ring and P getting Simon’s name tattooed ON HER NECK. Not even Bravo producers can make up this complete display of nonsense, which includes cheating allegations, an eyebrow-raising timeline and a whole lot of haters.
Thanks to Shamea Morton’s matchmaking skills, we’ll likely have a Bravo special about one of Porsha’s THREE weddings, as she does seem to be a network darling. Andy Cohen says Porsha just loves love, but some people (Marlo Hampton) believe this entire relationship is one big red flag. Porsha hasn’t had the best luck in love in the past, and getting her old friend’s husband before they’ve signed their names on divorce papers is the ultimate betrayal of girl code. This storyline is already beating the drawn-out #BoloGate, and Bravo hasn’t even begun filming Season 14.
Marlo Hampton may not be a full-time Housewife, but she delivered the drama last season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. During the bachelorette party trip, hell froze over when Marlo and Kenya Moore made up. Of course, Kenya wanted to out Porsha Williams as one of the RHOA cast members who got frisky with stripper Bolo. Porsha wasn’t happy to see her friend Marlo siding with Kenya.
Marlo accused Porsha of lying when she denied having sex with Bolo. At the dinner with Big Freedia in New Orleans, Marlo had a melt-down at the table because she was trapped in the middle between warring peaches Kenya and Porsha. Marlo was so extra during that dinner.
Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta might have been a bit of a “snoozefest” if it weren’t for Kenya Moore doing what she does best — stirring the pot and being as messy as possible. Whether she was trying to expose who slept with Bolo at Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party. Or throwing low-blows back and forth with Drew Sidora, Twirl knows how to play the villain. We also got to see another side of Kenya — her crush on LaToya Ali. This brought out a playful side, especially in the midst of her split from Marc Daly. And she and Marlo Hampton buried the hatchet, which made Porsha Williams pretty upset.
However, one of Kenya’s worst moments occurred at Falynn Guobadia’s Halloween party (you know, back when she was still with Simon Guobadia and he wasn’t engaged to Porsha4Real). Kenya dressed up as a “warrior princess” in a culturally insensitive Native American outfit. She and Bravo apologized after the episode aired and at the reunion, even though she tried to bring Drew down for doing the same thing. However, Drew has a tribal heritage and wore a Native American outfit as part of a cultural celebration, so it ended up looking even worse for Kenya. But to be fair, this is far from the first time a Real Housewives has been called out for cultural appropriation or racist actions. And some of them didn’t even give half of the apology Kenya gave.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is truly living in her own fantasy universe. She was given a huge rock from HER FRIEND Falynn Guobadia’s soon-to-be (keyword: soon) ex-husband Simon Guobadia after ONE MONTH of dating. Yes, after she spent Season 13 teasing a potential reunion with Hot Dog Dennis McKinley. And (poorly) denying any hoe-like activities with Bolo at Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party. Welp, now she’s engaged again, and frankly, I’m exhausted.
Porsha and Simon are on the same planet, posting on Instagram like they’re the C-List version of Bennifer or something. Despite the cheating allegations, a questionable timeline and other women coming out of the woodworks. I’m with Marlo Hampton on this one, the whole thing is just a big red flag.
Despite Porsha’s total lack of respect for her friend Falynn, who she brought on the show and didn’t even negotiate a contract for, she’s still being rewarded. Kenya Moore is still the villain on RHOA for hogging a crabcake and stirring the pot. At least she can own up to her mistakes when she crosses the line with someone’s man. Porsha’s got a 3-part spinoff coming this summer and is toying with the idea of a Bravo wedding. We already know her lapdog Shamea Morton will be a bridesmaid since we can point our fingers at her for getting this whole mess of a relationship started.
Real Housewives of Atlanta went all the way escalando and Porsha Williams Stewart Almost McKinley Almost Guobadia will be headlining the tele novela next season. Porsha has her eye on the prize and that prize is a $1.25 million rock, honey. So what if Porsha’s love interest is the former husband of a former friend? Sure, they may or may not have been hooking up on the low since January of this year, despite claims to the contrary. At this point, Porsha needs her own dramatic theme music.
Some people think Porsha and Simon Guobadia’s relationship has been a sham from the jump. And some people are like, mind your own business and naked ring finger. But one thing is clear, it certainly gets viewers interested for another season that hasn’t even begun filming yet. Marlo Hampton is one of those who has publicly criticized Porsha’s new romance, but to be fair Marlo is publicly critical of Porsha anyway. Recently Marlo went on social media and didn’t mince words or spare feelings when she was asked about Porsha’s affair of the heart.
Porsha Williams has definitely proven she’s the messiest of all time, but only when the Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras aren’t rolling. Since announcing her engagement to Simon Guobadia, who is apparently STILL MARRIED to her old friend Falynn Guobadia, the internet, including NeNe Leakes, has lost its collective mind. They were only dating for one month before he gave her a $1.25 million ring. And they’ve been posting on Instagram like their relationship is the epitome of happily ever after, despite the cheating allegations, a questionable timeline and other women who may or may not be involved in their relationship. It’s obvious from both Simon and Porsha’s social media that they can’t read a room, so maybe they really are meant for one another.
And if you’re not #TeamPorsha4Real, which now includes being pro-Simon, you’re against them. *Cough cough* Cynthia Bailey. Porsha has always had a group of
followers friends around her supporting her every move. But once you stray away a bit, like Marlo Hampton did by befriending Kenya Moore, you’re apparently dead to her. Meanwhile, Twirl continues to get a bad rap every RHOA season as being a villain, while Porsha is rewarded with spin-off specials and probably a TV wedding for her bad behavior. All I know is Falynn better be getting a peach and a fat paycheck after all the nonsense she’s gone through post-Season 13.
