Last season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes managed to alienate all her co-stars. She chased Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams (and a cameraman) out of her closet. She may have ripped off Porsha’s belt.
NeNe fell out with long-time bestie Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia had the audacity to invite RHOA alum Kenya Moore to Cynthia’s bellini launch party. How dare Cynthia not run her guest list by NeNe! NeNe referred to pregnant Kenya as a “monster” when Kandi arrived with Kenya. Cynthia told NeNe that she didn’t know that Kenya was coming to the party.
Cynthia Bailey has been having quite an eventful year. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star sent her daughter, Noelle Robinson, away for college. She survived the destruction of her friendship with long-time bestie NeNe Leakes. Cynthia invited Kenya Moore to an event without checking with NeNe first. Apparently, that is an unforgivable sin, and gets you demoted to co-worker status. Bloop! Cynthia claimed that she didn’t know Kenya was coming, but the damage was done.
In more positive news, the model made her relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill Instagram official in August of 2018 in honor of his birthday. In fact, Cynthia was so in love with her man that she predicted that Mike would propose sometime next year. Cynthia was ready for a lifetime of “CHill,” as their nickname suggests.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta was the “NeNe Leakes Show.” NeNe dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes, and his colon cancer diagnosis. She also shaded him by wondering if karma for cheating on her caused his illness.
When Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams ventured into her closet, NeNe promptly tried to remove them. NeNe ripped a cameraman’s shirt, and possibly pulled off Porsha’s belt. I’ll bet in Season 12 no one will even glance at any of NeNe’s closets.
Can’t we all just get along? Not in Hotlanta, baby. It’s a policy that seems to be working for NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s career is somewhat based on her negative attitude. NeNe iced out good friends Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams in the path of destruction she spearheaded last season. Triggered by Kenya Moore, NeNe managed to alienate most of her co-stars and challenge the core values of friendship.
After demoting Cynthia and Porsha, the cast had little to do with NeNe. Contract negotiations delayed her return in front of the cameras, but Season 12 finds NeNe standing by the wayside. It seems her only
minion ally is Marlo Hampton, who remains loyal to NeNe because it might lead to a peach. But now Marlo might be in the hot seat. After Cynthia found herself engaged to Mike Hill, the cast celebrated the occasion at a filmed venue. To no one’s surprise NeNe didn’t show, but minion Marlo did. Is Marlo’s wig next on NeNe’s chopping block? Needy NeNe is once again on the train of denial, she addresses her reaction to Cynthia’s engagement and Marlo’s thirstiness supposed betrayal.
After months of speaking it into existence, Cynthia Bailey is engaged! Mike Hill popped the question on July 26. And, yes, Real Housewives of Atlanta is filming Season 12 right now. Of course, this was caught on film.
Aside from that, Mike had some professional photographers on hand to document the moment and a rep for the couple sent some pictures our way!
I think it is safe to assume that the bad blood between Real Housewives of Atlanta
friends co-stars NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey is rolling into Season 12. NeNe just confirmed that she signed her contract for the upcoming season, amid rumors that none of the other Atlanta ladies wanted to film with her.
I wonder why everyone is angry with NeNe? Is it because she threw Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams out of her closet? Or because she ripped a cameraman’s shirt who was trying to enter the same closet? There were rumors that NeNe tore off Porsha’s belt, too. NeNe also fat-shamed her supposed little sister just days after Porsha gave birth to her daughter.
Even Gregg Leakes, who is battling cancer, didn’t escape NeNe’s wrath. She mused about whether her husband was diagnosed with cancer as karma for cheating on her. Yup. She went there.
It looks likes the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta know how to keep the drama, and the paychecks, flowing. Season 11 of the show got off to a very slow start, but in the end, the season delivered. Eva Marcille finally tied the knot. NeNe Leakes dealt with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer and with marital strife. Thankfully, he is cancer-free now. Cynthia Bailey found love again with Mike Hill. Newbie Shamari DeVoe was accused of having a drinking problem by Marlo Hampton. Porsha Williams fell in love with Dennis McKinley, got engaged, and gave birth to daughter Pilar (and a baby spin-off special!)
In a shocking turn of events, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia because Cynthia did not advise NeNe that former RHOA star Kenya Moore might be at Cynthia’s party. NeNe, never one to be shy, referred to a glowing and pregnant Kenya as a “monster.” As for Cynthia, she looked shady about whether she knew Kenya was going to be at the party.
NeNe Leakes is short on friends in the current Real Housewives of Atlanta cast. However, she does seem to be on great terms with RHOA alum Phaedra Parks. NeNe said she wanted Phaedra to return. Several times.
Clearly, she’d take Phaedra over her ex-bestie Cynthia Bailey. NeNe denounced Cynthia to “coworker status” after the season finale antics. NeNe is also done with Friend of the Housewives Tanya Sam. Or is it the other way around? After giving Tanya hell all season long, their friendship fell apart. So what happens when NeNe, Phaedra, Cynthia, and Tanya all end up in the same place? They take pictures
to get attention. Separately, of course.
