Lately it seems like Real Housewives of Atlanta has revolved around NeNe Leakes. She dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes’, cancer battle. She even implied that he was ill because karma was paying him back for cheating on her. Really, NeNe? That is about as low as you can go.
Unless, of course, you are throwing RHOA co-stars Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams out of your closet and ripping a camera man’s shirt in the process. NeNe later made fun of Porsha’s weight and body-shamed the new mom just days after she gave birth. That isn’t cool, NeNe.
NeNe Leakes is having a tough year. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, was battling cancer. And battling NeNe. Also battling NeNe? The majority of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast and some of the crew. But don’t feel sorry for NeNe, the majority of her battles are of her own making. NeNe threatened to “f*uck up” a cameraman. She physically assaulted Porsha Williams and another crew member in a closet. NeNe denounced her friendship with Cynthia Bailey. She fat-shamed Porsha approximately 6.2 seconds after Porsha expelled a human from her body.
Despite NeNe’s distasteful-bordering-on-criminal behavior, rumors have been swirling that she will receive a raise for appearing on RHOA Season 12. In fact, word on the (Peachtree) street is that the entire cast has received raises. It’s a good thing Ms. Leakes is a rich bitch, because it looks like she may not benefit from the alleged salary-hike. It looks like Season 12 of RHOA is filming without her!
The love affair between Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley continues. Or does it? These two kids need to get it together because it has become
tiresome confusing. Porsha and Dennis rolled into couplehood and became engaged in late 2018. After a whirlwind romance, Porsha announced her pregnancy and gave birth to daughter Pilar Jhena in March of this year.
Like any couple, Dennis and Porsha have shared peaks and valleys. Dennis has had some hair weave legal drama with an ex-girlfriend. Porsha endured multiple histrionics, courtesy of her co-stars, during much of her pregnancy. Porsha also faced some financial issues, because you have to pay your taxes… Then came the cheating rumors. Dennis had previously confessed to keeping in touch with former flames, to the chagrin of his beloved. Last month, the streets started screaming about Dennis ALLEGEDLY being unfaithful. Porsha unfollowed him on social media and her fans wondered if the dream was over. Dennis denied any infidelity and she re-followed him again hours later. A few weeks after that episode, Porsha has unfollowed Dennis a second time, again causing fans to question the status of their relationship.
Well isn’t this interesting. Season 12 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has gone into production. Minus one
giant inflated ego NeNe Leakes. How could that be, you might ask! Why NeNe was essential last year when the world literally revolved around her life! And her closet… Last season, we watched the cast console NeNe over her various troubles. NeNe has openly blasted her former best friend and husband. In a particularly low-class moment, she fat-shamed Porsha Williams, two seconds after she gave birth. Those who might have felt sympathy for her, saw it fade away.
As she sat on the reunion stage, defending her coarse attitude throughout filming, she offered no apologies or feelings of remorse. NeNe also saw friendships go down the drain. Then news broke of an alleged salary increase for NeNe’s presence on the show, despite her unpleasant behavior. Now cameras are rolling for the next journey in Atlanta, but
the rich bitch NeNe is nowhere to be found.
Much has happened since Apollo Nida appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta. His wife, Phaedra Parks, filed for, and was granted, a divorce from him. But not so fast! Apollo contested the divorce. He said that he never signed the documents, and that his name was spelled incorrectly. The divorce was reversed. Since Phaedra is an attorney, that must be embarrassing. And awkward. Their divorce was finally settled in 2017. The couple shares two sons together.
Of course, Phaedra lost her RHOA peach after Season 9 because of the horrible rumors that she spread that co-stars Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, supposedly wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha Williams. That debacle was the final nail in the coffin of Phaedra’s time as a Housewife. Well, at least she has more time to devote to her careers as a funeral director/lawyer.
Let’s talk about Dennis McKinley. The fiancé of new mama Porsha Williams has quite a reputation. Since first appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the
Weiner Hot Dog King’s name has been in the mouths of the cast members. Porsha and Dennis recently had a beautiful child and are currently together, despite Porsha’s recent financial issues.
Dennis has multiple tattoos of his ex’s names and confessed to keeping in touch with them. But does that make him
a big cheater cheater pumpkin eater unfaithful? Not necessarily, however, the streets are talking again and wondering if Dennis needs to check his hot dog situation.
It looks likes the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta know how to keep the drama, and the paychecks, flowing. Season 11 of the show got off to a very slow start, but in the end, the season delivered. Eva Marcille finally tied the knot. NeNe Leakes dealt with her husband Gregg Leakes’ battle with colon cancer and with marital strife. Thankfully, he is cancer-free now. Cynthia Bailey found love again with Mike Hill. Newbie Shamari DeVoe was accused of having a drinking problem by Marlo Hampton. Porsha Williams fell in love with Dennis McKinley, got engaged, and gave birth to daughter Pilar (and a baby spin-off special!)
In a shocking turn of events, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia because Cynthia did not advise NeNe that former RHOA star Kenya Moore might be at Cynthia’s party. NeNe, never one to be shy, referred to a glowing and pregnant Kenya as a “monster.” As for Cynthia, she looked shady about whether she knew Kenya was going to be at the party.
During Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss introduced us to her sexy burlesque/variety show “Welcome To The Dungeon.” Cynthia Bailey even made an appearance, which was incredibly awkward.
Kandi and mother-to-be Porsha Williams ventured into NeNe Leakes’ mystery closet, when they were told not to go there. A camera man’s shirt was ripped, and NeNe might have pulled off Porsha’s belt. We still don’t know what was in this closet. Bravo- we need to know!
