We don’t get to see a ton of Tanya Sam on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but when we do we get to witness someone who’s clearheaded, well-rounded, and not sweating the small stuff. In other words, she’s a breath of fresh air among women arguing about overpriced flip flops and rehashing drama from three years ago.
We first “met” Tanya as a friend of NeNe Leakes en route to Cynthia Bailey’sBailey-Cue event. A few episodes later, her title on the show describes her as “Eva [Marcille]’s friend,” which is some super shady editing. Nevertheless, there’s much more to Tanya than who she’s friends with. Unfortunately, we just don’t get to see all of her dimension on the show. Thankfully, Tanya recently opened up to Reality Tea for an exclusive interview. She provided some valuable insights and spilled some behind-the-scenes info about her first season on the show.
Porsha revealed that she was pregnant in September of 2018. This makes sense because Porsha has been craving pickles– a lot of pickles. In fact, Porsha and her frenemy “big sister,” NeNe Leakes, sprung the news on the Housewives during their RHOA Tokyo girls’ trip. Porsha even told the ladies in Japanese while NeNe banged on a gong. No — I don’t understand about the gong, either. Was NeNe trying to drown out Porsha’s surprise announcement?
Kim Zolciakhas never been shy about drawing attention to herself. Posting endless selfies and teasing about her latest cosmetic procedures. The Don’t Be Tardy star clearly enjoys being the center of the universe. And she loves showing off how she spends her hard earned money. From rolling with Rolls Royces to posing with her Speedo-clad hubby Kroy Biermannon a private beach, Kim seems to be living the good life. At least according to her social media.
Now, Kim is receiving some attention she would probably rather not have. She has been accused of being unfashionably late on a credit card bill. To the tune of six digits.
Why isn’t Marlo Hampton a full-time cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Seriously though. Marlo gives us consistent drama, humor, and shade. This season has been a complete and utter waste dull, but luckily we have Marlo. Most of this season’s memorable moments have revolved around her. Her over the top reaction to losing her luggage in Japan was GOLD. NeNe Leakes’ husband has cancer and Marlo was snapping about not having deodorant.
In addition to Marlo’s humor, she is always giving us drama. We almost died when she called Shamari DeVoe’s momma a bitch. Who can forget her 43-hour car ride fight with Eva Marcille in Tokyo? Maybe Marlo just dislikes the new girls (especially the full-time cast members)? How does this woman not have a peach yet? Her hilarious moments and epic fights have definitely saved this season. Marlo is also slaying off camera. What exactly does Marlo think of the queen of amnesia Eva? OH, THE SHADE.
It feels like the saga between Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes will never end. During Season 1 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, these two were best friends. For a couple episodes anyway. Then, they had an on-again-off-again relationship that spawned some infamous insults.
NeNe told Kim “close your legs to married men.” She called her a “trash box.” NeNe even referred to Kim as “Wig” instead of her actual name. Many times over. And who can forget their confrontation during the Season 10 reunion? There’s no coming back from that kind of animosity. Right? Well, you never know what to expect from these two. The door is actually not closed.
It was a night of changes galore for the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. And despite what Japanese fortunes may have predicted, everyone’s lives were shifting and sliding in various directions. Just like the empty old wine bottles Cynthia Bailey wants to affix to the walls of her new wine bar.
I mean Jesus told Cynthia to do it and she is a “prayer of Jesus” who says recycle thy juice of the holy spirit. Or maybe that’s just Cynthia’s way of hiding how much wine she and her fellow Housewives consume?
