Although things worked out great on The Brady Bunch, blending families isn’t always that easy. That’s why it’s so nice that Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill’s families have come together in such a harmonious way. Or at least that’s what I thought.
There are other people who said it was “inappropriate” that Cynthia’s adult daughter Noelle Robinson moved in with Mike in Los Angeles.
Kenya Moore’s return to Real Housewives of Atlanta has been surrounded by drama. Kenya was allegedly let go after Season 10 for refusing to film with her husband. Now she has twirled back for Season 12, and I am here for it!
On November 4, 2018 Kenya and her husband Marc Daly welcomed their daughter, Brooklyn Daly. But in September, Kenya announced that she and her camera-shy husband were divorcing after two years of marriage.
It’s great to have Kenya Moore back on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We really needed her last season. Or at least that’s how I felt. NeNe Leakes, on the other hand, did not feel the same way. She was livid when Kenya showed up to Cynthia Bailey’s party during the Season 11 finale. NeNe and Cynthia even ended their friendship over that “betrayal.”
When it was announced that Kenya would return to RHOA, many fans eagerly anticipated some heated exchanges between the Housewives. Instead, we got some flashback clips and no new NeNe footage. NeNe has been absent from the first two episodes, but she will come face to face with Cynthia this week at the Pride parade. Eva Marcille, Marlo Hampton, and Cynthia’s daughter Noelle Robinson will be there too, but the marquee event is NeNe and Cynthia’s first encounter in months. With that said, I have to assume that there will be a lot of build up, followed by a cliffhanger at the end, to keep us on the edge of our seats until next week. I hope I’m wrong, but that’s just how I see this going based on my many years of Real Housewives viewership.
During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams revealed that Dennis McKinley asked for her engagement ring back after he cheated and sent her a million flowers claiming he wanted to get back together.
After the episode, Cynthia Bailey appeared on Watch What Happens Live
to continue talking shit about NeNe Leakes to dish on the episode. After going through a public split herself, with ex-husband Peter Thomas, Cynthia talked about where they stand these days.
Kenya Moore’s return last week on The Real Housewives of Atlanta was incredible. She never should have left and now she’s back and holding her rightful peach. The first episode was very BABY heavy, but the drama is coming. Seeing Porsha Williams and Kenya finally become friends is the greatest thing to ever happen to Atlanta. IT’S ABOUT TIME.
One thing that was crazy during the premiere was the absence of Nene Leakes. We now know the reason why, but it was still weird not seeing her. Nene’s feud with Kenya is a big selling point of this season, so hopefully, we see some of that soon. The first tension of the season is already brewing between Kenya and model Eva Marcille. Was it weird that Eva didn’t want her baby around Kenya? KINDA, but that’s classic Atlanta shade.
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.
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!
