In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Bravo has had to become creative putting together new shows. They’ve shot confessionals at home and reunions via zoom. It’s not the same, but it’s better than nothing, and these efforts are appreciated by the fans who are watching at home.
Now, there’s a new Zoom talk show coming up with a pretty random, all-star cast. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain will executive produce and host Bravo’s Chat Room along with Potomac Housewife Gizelle Bryant and Hannah Berner from Summer House.
Aaaand that’s a wrap, again, for Nene Leakes. This icon is taking yet another leave from Real Housewives of Atlanta. We had expected it for a while. And there are already rumors swirling about new Housewives this coming season. But now it’s official.
Garcelle Beauvais is already trying to have Nene swap over to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. She’s not the only Bravo-leb who’s been reaching out to Nene lately either.
It’s that time of year again! The sun sets earlier, kids are back in school, and NeNe Leakes has yet to begin filming Real Housewives of Atlanta. Oh woe is NeNe, what could it be this time? Contract negotiations? Nobody likes her? Discrimination lawsuit? NeNe historically likes to make sure everyone knows she is the head number one OG and no one compares, or will ever compare to her legacy. Too bad she treats people so poorly they hate filming with her and doesn’t limit her lack of people-skills to the cast.
Production began filming Season 12 sans NeNe. She wasn’t in the first few episodes and I’m not entirely sure she was missed by too many. It was nice not to be inundated with NeNe’s perpetual sour attitude and disdain towards her fellow castmates. But, she did come back and went on an apology tour, in hopes that someone will agree to shoot scenes with her once again. Now, right on schedule, the rumor mill is humming about NeNe’s peach. Will she return to RHOA? Is she involved with a discrimination case against Bravo? Is there anything NeNe won’t do to remain relevant?
Porsha Williams has been a very active supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. She got arrested not once, but twice, at peaceful protests in honor of seeking justice for Breonna Taylor.
Now, Porsha has to respond to a ridiculous claim that she “twerked” on a police officer at a protest. Why would someone who has put so much into supporting this movement throw all of that away for a frivolous gesture? She would not. Who in her right mind would actually twerk on an armed police officer?
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams got arrested at a peaceful protest again. Her late grandfather, civil rights leader Hosea Williams, would be very proud of her. She’s come a long way since the day she admitted she thought the underground railroad involved an actual train.
Now, she’s speaking up and putting in the time, hoping to make a difference and bring justice during the Black Lives Matter movement.
Simply put, 2020 has sucked. I don’t think anyone can really dispute that. But from the chaos of everything going on, something good has come out of it all. The discussion surrounding race in America.
This year’s reckoning of Bravo stars was just one step forward. Forcing the Vanderpump Rules cast to take responsibility for racist behavior was shocking to many, but absolutely necessary. Seeing some of our favorites, like Porsha Williams and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, calling for justice was inspiring.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta never cease to amaze, impress, and most of all, entertain. Since wrapping the historical virtual Season 12 reunion, so much has happened. Namely, Porsha Williams was arrested for her protesting the murder of Breonna Taylor. Thankfully, the charges were dropped. She is back to carrying on her family business of fighting racism and standing up for what is equitable. This queen has even teased a new book! Can’t wait!
Watching Porsha come into her own through the years has been a true joy. She’s grown so much since the times of underground railroad confusion and spreading drug and rape accusations. Of course, these rumors directed at Kandi Burruss and started by shady Phaedra Parks, but I digress. Since then Phaedra has been in the press talking about her funeral business and sexless relationship….meh. Let’s get back to Porsha and Kandi, shall we?
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has been busy lately. Porsha is holding a peach, working for DISH Nation, and is a mother. She has been on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement, protesting social injustice.
Of course, civil rights activist Reverend Hosea Williams is Porsha’s grandfather, and she even attended protests with him. On July 14, Porsha was in Louisville, Kentucky protesting the death of Breonna Taylor.
