Even though Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill have only been together for a minute and a half, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans have been overwhelmed by their
boring relationship. Cynthia went on and on about her future marriage and wedding plans… before they were even engaged.
After all those months of begging for a ring and Kenya Moore sort of spoiling the proposal surprise, Cynthia still managed to be surprised. Well, it turns out Mike isn’t as picture perfect as Cynthia thought. It turns out he cheated on his two previous wives, a fun fact that throws off Cynthia during tonight’s new episode.
Well, knock me over with a strand of fake hair because Kenya Moore finally got ousted for wearing a wig on last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta. And no thanks to Tanya Sam, who will not be taking thinly veiled insinuations that her fiancé Paul Judge is cheating lying down!
Back from Tanada everyone had a great trip – especially Porsha Williams who is now re-engaged to Dennis McKinley. Is that a good idea? Not if you ask Porsha’s sister Lauren! Porsha decides the thing to do is organize a dinner where Dennis will apologize to Mama Diane and Lauren, then they can all act like nothing bad ever happened!
After traveling Eva Marcille is exhausted. Eva’s also stressed because she’s days away from petitioning the court to allow a name change for Marley, which will pave the way for Mike Sterling to formally adopt her. Mike is the only father Marley has ever known, but Eva still worries that the abusive ‘donor daddy’ might make a sudden trip down to Atlanta, violating restraining orders, to contest the proceedings. Mike is not worried. I guess as a prosecutor he’s come up against plenty of hardened criminals so one little Instagram model with a temper – however horrendous and evil – isn’t quite as scary?
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a trip to the insane asylum rather than carnival. Or maybe they thought they were visiting LeeAnne Locken‘s carnival of crazy? The fighting and attempted snake baiting went so completely off the rails that Kenya Moore‘s elusive SECURITY! appeared out of nowhere to drag Nene Leakes away. Does Kenya summon them by flicking her maxi dress?!
It’s hard to believe the mess all started with Porsha Williams getting re-engaged in a surprise re-proposal. Dennis McKinley showed up Tanya Sam‘s party, and crept through the crowd like a gopher, until he popped up right at Porsha’s feet holding a ring.
All it took was Dennis publicly admitting that he betrayed Porsha’s trust and embarrassed their family for her to immediately re-accept and start calling him “husband,” but something is not right because Porsha was all excited to take Dennis back to the hotel for some peen, yet he had to fly home to his hot dogs instead… Like Kandi Burruss I too have my suspicions. However if I were Kandi I’d be more worried about what Todd Tucker is doing with his time all day with all these unfinished properties he spent her money on!
Tanya Sam was a new addition to Real Housewives of Atlanta in Season 11. She appeared as a Friend of the Housewives. Initially, Tanya was brought on as NeNe Leakes’ friend. Oh, how that changed during the season!
NeNe became angry when she thought that Tanya dissed NeNe’s store, Swagg Boutique, during the Housewives talent show in Florida. NeNe later said that Tanya was obsessed with labels. (Hello–have you met your fellow Housewives? And looked in a mirror lately, NeNe?) In Tokyo, the ladies each got a fortune at a temple. NeNe said that Tanya’s fortune meant that she might not marry her fiancé, Paul Judge. NeNe blew up (as she typically does) when Tanya was upset over the way that NeNe shaded her relationship. Later, Bravo officially changed Tanya to Eva Marcille’s friend. Well played, Bravo. Well played.
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.
Part 3 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion was like a loaded baked potato. So many morsels to digest!
So first what about Porsha Williams‘ belt!? We’re back in NeNe Leakes‘ closet of horrors where she didn’t want her Kim Zolciak wig shrine discovered so she used force, magical crystals, and Jedi Mind Tricks to keep all her friends out. Or maybe there were roaches in there – who knows?
What we do know is that at some point NeNe choked out a producer, scratched him, and had him pinned against the wall, but she doesn’t feel bad about it at all. This producer also suffered from a cracked (or lost?) tooth and had to go to the hospital for injuries. This was after NeNe reportedly shoved a pregnant Porsha and ripped a cameraman’s shirt trying to stop him from entering the closet. I don’t believe Porsha filmed audio of her yelling “I’m scared” after the fact.
Well, I Am living for Porsha Williams on this Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion! And I am really LIVING for the return of the fan. I can only hope it was a gift from Kenya Moore to further piss NeNe Leakes off! Gone with the wind fabulous, but not forgotten from those sofas, sista!
Porsha is not having any of NeNe’s nonsense this reunion and for that I say: YES. Because NO to NeNe’s nonsense and awful attitude and rude unnecessary comments. Claiming you are having a breakdown is not an excuse to verbally and physically assault your friends and co-workers, NeNe! If NeNe has questions about this, she can run it by OSHA to see what they have to say about her workplace behavior.
But first – how are things between Porsha and Kandi Burruss who appeared to be getting along quite well in the latter half of this season as they came together for good against a common enemy (NeNe)? Well, Kandi and Porsha are still not so super good – meaning not following each other on Insta.
Real Housewives Of Atlanta is really milking the everyone vs. NeNe Leakes scenario for all it’s worth – and I am so glad! NeNe has been prancing around like Marie Antoinette with her wigs piled high on her fake haughty head and it’s time for a new queen [hair flip!]. Or no queen, and just a equal well-connected cast of women who have fun, light drama, and interesting lives.
Seriously, though, I’m excited by the insurgency of the rest of the cast with their unwillingness to uphold the narrative that NeNe has immunity. She doesn’t nor should she. It’s more than about time that NeNe’s wig glue melted! NeNe is essentially mad for the sake of being mad (or maybe, benefit of the doubt: there’s some stuff we, the viewers, didn’t see).
After a [low-rated, boring ass] season of making everything about how NeNe is feeling and not upsetting the NeNe cart, NeNe’s now accusing everyone of turning on her. She expects Andy Cohen to support her to get the other women in line. But it’s not going to go that way. Not this time!
