Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured many milestones in Porsha Williams’ life. She dated, and became engaged to, the Hot Dog King, Dennis McKinley. The couple welcomed their precious daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, in March of 2019. Since the Bravo cameras didn’t want to miss out on this experience, the engaged duo also had a baby special leading up to Pilar’s birth.
Unfortunately, the status of Dennis and Porsha’s relationship is murky. Porsha faced some big financial problems (please pay your taxes, people!) Dennis was also the subject of cheating rumors, and Porsha unfollowed her fiancé on Instagram on two separate occasions. RHOA viewers are left hanging as to whether the engagement, and relationship, are done.
Wedding bells are ringing, y’all. It seems like most of the Vanderpump Rules cast has found a significant other. Joining the
future divorce marriage club will be Lala Kent and HER MAN, Randall Emmett. Together for several years now, Lala and Rand have endured trying times in their relationship, traveling the peaks and valleys of love. They were engaged to be wed in 2018 and Lala is already planning the festivities. And we all know how much Bravo loves a tragedy sophisticated marriage ceremony.
Fans have certainly seen their share of wedding spin-off shows. NeNe Leakes had one. Kandi Burruss also shared her journey to the altar. Kim Zolciak got an entire show after her bride-to-be antics were featured. Now there is speculation that Randall and Lala have something going on behind the scenes. Thanks to social media and
desperation the desire to tease, viewers are wondering if Lala and Randall are filming a little spinoff of their own.
She’s back!!! Kenya Moore will be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 12. After a painfully boring Season 11 (up until the closet drama), Kenya is needed. Just don’t tell NeNe Leakes that.
NeNe flipped out during the Season 11 finale when Kenya showed up to Cynthia Bailey’s party. She accused Cynthia of scheming against her with Kandi Burruss in cahoots. Cynthia made some questionable hot mic comments. The last thing NeNe wanted was a Kenya Moore return, but here we are.
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.
Watch What Happens Live executive producer and host Andy Cohen is, for all intents and purposes, the face of Bravo. Without him, the landscape of reality television might look very different today. And we would not know that women can be called “Housewives” without actually being married!
Andy, of course, is also the executive producer of the Real Housewives shows, which have been the standard after which many other reality shows have been modeled. Haven’t you always wondered if Andy has a favorite among all the Bravo shows? Would it be the Real Housewives of Orange County, which started the Housewives franchise? Or the Real Housewives of New York, which takes place in his beloved adopted home town? Maybe another Bravo show which he does not produce himself?
Warning, this article has a possible DEFCON 4 level “EW” factor. Just kidding! Bravolebrities had a busy Pride month. You might have seen the great photos of Bravo’s float in the parade. Some
hated much loved Housewives showed up and Andy Cohen certainly had a blast. NeNe Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta made an appearance. Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York were on hand. Special guest star, all the way from South Carolina, was Southern Charm’s own Patricia Altschul.
The ladies hung out and bonded, I’m sure they shared
salaries secrets we would all like to know. Social media was ablaze with photo ops, which of course brings out the haters. In one particular photo Ms. Pat shared, a commenter made a remark about her son’s sexual preference. How gauche. And while the gender Whitney Sudler-Smith prefers in his bed is no one’s beeswax, Patricia addressed the statement. Boy did she ever.
Months later, it’s still hard to get over how epic Andy Cohen’s baby shower was. Imagine all of those Real Housewives on a moving float. Plus cast members from Vanderpump Rules, Southern Charm, Below Deck, and Shahs of Sunset. That was the Bravo float for the Pride celebration in New York City this past weekend.
Andy gathered the most enthusiastic group of Bravolebrities. They dressed up in festive rainbow outfits. They danced, sang, and they had a few cocktails, of course.
The new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is already stirring up the drama. We know
fan favorite Kenya Moore has possibly returned in all of her glory. We know Porsha Williams’ recent break-up with Dennis McKinley will play out. And word on the street was NeNe Leakes, everyone’s favorite ray of sunshine, was being “shut out” of filming. Meaning, she pissed everyone off so much last year, no one will hang out with her.
Amid speculation that NeNe might not return to the show, there were rumors she received a very hefty increase in salary. When production began on Season 12, NeNe was like Dennis’ loyalty, nowhere to be found. But fear not, NeNe made sure to squash those silly rumors when she let everyone know she wasn’t gone, just in the midst of intense contract negotiations. Many viewers hoped this was a sign that NeNe was ultimately let go after her cantankerous attitude did her no favors last year. Well, the mystery has been solved. If you were worried NeNe was going to quietly ride off into the sunset, then worry no more. She’s back.
