Real Housewives of Orange County alums Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have a baby girl on the way. It’s the couple’s first child together and they could not be more excited, especially after their tough journey to conceive.
Gretchen and Slade had a lavish baby shower for their soon-to-be baby girl Skylar Gray at the Seven 7 Seven in Laguna Beach, CA. There were actually a lot of past and present Bravolebrities present at the party. The event was beautifully decorated thanks to Ice Age Glacial Water, Chandon Champagne, Distillery 291, Glamour Flower Boutiquet, The Balloon Box, and Invitation Design Studio.
Is your wildest dream about to come true? Or is this your worst nightmare? Regardless of how you feel about Kenya Moore, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of gray area. It’s either love her or hate her with little in between. After Kenya left Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2017, she finally got her wish of becoming a mom. Daughter, Brooklyn Daly was born in November 2018. While we did not get to see a lot of Kenya’s pregnancy on film, she did show up to a Cynthia Bailey function during Season 11 of RHOA. Her mere presence caused NeNe Leakes to have another
big baby tantrum meltdown, which eventually lead to the demise of her friendship with Cynthia.
So, along with husband Marc Daly and her new baby, is Twirl ready to sign on the dotted line and come back? Viewers and current cast members seem to think a shakeup is necessary. Some want Phaedra Parks back. Some want NeNe to leaveleave. But for the out and proud Kenya fans, and the closet fans who won’t admit it, it looks like your time might be coming after all.
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.
There appears to be a baby boom in Atlanta! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams just welcomed her daughter, Pilar Jhena on March 22. Pilar’s father is Porsha’s fiancé, and tattoo enthusiast, Dennis McKinley. Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, have found a surrogate to expand their family. And in November of 2018, RHOA alum Kenya Moore and her husband, Marc Daly, welcomed their daughter, Brooklyn Doris.
Viewers watched Eva Marcille wed Michael Sterling in a
crazy expensive lavish ceremony. It was a lovely wedding, and the couple’s personal vows were beautiful. NeNe Leakes, who was asked to make a toast by Eva, managed to come up with a few lackluster comments. That toast was so generic! NeNe was upset about the state of her own marriage and managed to somehow make Eva’s wedding all about her. Sigh.
WHAT A MOMENT. The Season 9 reunion of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has us shook even two years later. The reveal that Phaedra Parks was the shocking source was such a blindside to Kandi Burruss. She was the one who told Porsha Williams that Kandi wanted to drug and rape her. That’s such a massively bold thing to say about anyone.
To this day, the two have not spoken or attempted to repair their friendship. Honestly, given the nature of what went down, it likely will never happen. Surprisingly Nene Leakes seems to want Ms. Parks back for another season. Ulterior motives perhaps? Things could get uncomfortable fast if both Kandi and Phaedra are on the same season. However, maybe Kandi won’t be around much longer?
NeNe Leakes has been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a minute now and she isn’t shy about telling you she’s an OG. Actually, NeNe isn’t shy about much of anything. Season 11 proved to be a trying time for NeNe and she wasted no time in making every single thing about herself. If a situation did not highlight her in some way, she made sure it did.
While living life in front of the cameras, MeMe grabbed the spotlight from Eva Marcille’s wedding. When pregnant Porsha Williams complained of back pain, NeNe let you know her pain was worse. When former cast mate Kenya Moore showed up at a party thrown by Cynthia Bailey, NeNe demoted Cynthia from friend to co-worker. And as we all know, husband Gregg Leakes is suffering from colon cancer – but NeNe’s suffering outweighed his by miles. Petty, it’s what’s for dinner! The only person this season who gave it right back to NeNe was Tokyo tour guide Aya, who doubled down on “being on time” and left NeNe in the dust when she was late for group activities. After a turbulent season of losing friends, NeNe is speaking about who should stay, who should go, and who should join the next journey of RHOA. I have an idea, can we give Aya a peach?
They say an elephant never forgets, but a Real Housewives fan sure can. Phaedra Parks was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta after she spread rumors that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams and other women. Porsha pushed that untrue story as well, but she remained on the show. Now, RHOA is basically The Porsha Williams Show. She has grown from the accomplice with anger management issues to a hilarious character.
Now, the fans miss Phaedra because, let’s be honest, the show got pretty boring. Or at least it did until NeNe Leakes threw Porsha and Kandi out of her closet. The fans want Phaedra back. NeNe wants Phaedra back. So, is it actually happening? They are in desperate need of a cast shakeup for Season 12.
For a long time, Real Housewives of Atlanta revolved around NeNe Leakes. This is because she threw fun shade. She had iconic clapbacks. She made us laugh However, the fun stopped. At some point, NeNe became super combative. She was the only one who didn’t get the memo that RHOA is supposed to be an ensemble show. NeNe really made everything about her.
She made her husband’s cancer diagnosis about her. She made Eva Marcille’s wedding about her. NeNe got on everyone’s last nerve. Meanwhile, Porsha Williams had a major come up. She went from being Phaedra Parks’ villainous accomplice to the star of the show. She got engaged, got pregnant, and got the fan support this past season. Oh, and who can forget that she also got thrown out of NeNe’s closet. Now, NeNe is coming for Porsha. Again.
