You knew this was coming. I knew this was coming. The neighbor’s dog knew this was coming. NeNe Leakes is speaking and you can guarantee it doesn’t involve the words, “I’m sorry”. It may however contain the phrase, “poor me”. After an astounding season of treating people like dirt on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it looks like damage control has been engaged. Oh goody! You might recall NeNe literally had a problem with everyone she came into contact with last year. Including Bravo production. No one escaped NeNe’s wrath, not even her husband Gregg.
Season 11 found Gregg suffering from stage III colon cancer. Because of that whole, “in sickness and in health” thing, NeNe assumed the role of caretaker. Fortunately for NeNe, Gregg’s advanced illness did not prevent her from traveling to Tokyo. Nor did she miss filming obligations due to his condition. In fact, much of Gregg’s battle revolved around NeNe’s needs. The backlash she received was notable. Co-stars didn’t like her and the fans were over her too. NeNe’s publicist must have stopped hitting the snooze button, now there could be a reason behind her course attitude. Pack your bags and grab your snacks, we’re taking a ride on the Excuse Train.
For the most part, the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 storylines have been kept under wraps, but you know these ladies can’t help sharing photos of themselves at cast events. The RHOA women headed to Toronto, Canada for Carnival. Am I the only one who had no idea this was a thing in Canada?
When I saw all the photos of the ladies who dressed in costume (i.e. pretty much everyone except NeNe Leakes), I just figured they were in Barbados. Well, NeNe was on the trip, even though she ended Season 11 on the outs with just about everyone except for Shamari DeVoe, who does not even appear to be a part of the cast for Season 12. She really started to grow on me when she threw up on Eva Marcille’s shoe. Such a shame! Well, at least NeNe has
forever peachless Marlo Hampton on her side.
Things move fast down south, despite the sweltering heat. Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley are no strangers to moving fast. Porsha’s relationship with Dennis went from 0 to 60 in record time, as we watched their love quickly evolve on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their courtship was brief before Porsha got pregnant with their first child, Pilar Jhena. Viewers watched Porsha’s own spinoff as she basked in the glow of baby planning. She also received a lovely proposal from Dennis.
Dennis and Porsha have not had smooth sailing. Dennis denied accusations of being unfaithful to his fiancé. During the scandal, Porsha unfollowed Dennis on social media and removed the massive rock on her ring finger. Dennis maintained his innocence, but had another incident. When attending an annual physician’s appointment, Dennis’ attempt to eat lunch was disrupted by a pair of handcuffs. Thankfully, this unfortunate turn of events didn’t damage Dennis’ game. Shortly thereafter the couple announced a reconciliation. Now, in true Dennis and Porsha fast fashion, the couple is ready for Porsha’s Having A Baby: Again.
We are back with Instagram Roundup! This time we are trying it out on a monthly basis with a look back of the most interesting photos from this past month.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder shared engagement photos with new fiancé Beau Clark. The two them along with other cast members went to Vegas for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s legal marriage ceremony. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, it wasn’t legal the first time they tied the knot, so they had to do it again.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta was the “NeNe Leakes Show.” NeNe dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes, and his colon cancer diagnosis. She also shaded him by wondering if karma for cheating on her caused his illness.
When Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams ventured into her closet, NeNe promptly tried to remove them. NeNe ripped a cameraman’s shirt, and possibly pulled off Porsha’s belt. I’ll bet in Season 12 no one will even glance at any of NeNe’s closets.
Guess what everybody, NeNe Leakes is teaching us a lesson! Please take a brief moment and thank your lucky stars we have been gifted with this powerhouse of knowledge. Last season, Real Housewives of Atlanta really took a toll on NeNe. She weathered multiple run-ins with cast members and lost a couple of old friends. But please be clear, NeNe is not responsible for treating people badly. In fact, they might have deserved it! NeNe is a firm believer in Karma and her wicked ways.
Look, NeNe might have physically attacked part of Bravo production, but it wasn’t her fault. See, the cameraman hired to film these ladies in their homes, violated NeNe’s privacy by entering her closet. I hope he learned his lesson. Even Porsha Williams ALLEGEDLY had her pregnant body tossed around in the melee. But, it was Porsha’s fault for being pregnant and in the way – how dare she! Another person who did NeNe dirty was Cynthia Bailey. She had the sheer audacity to fall in love with someone other than NeNe. Then she went out of her way to invite a guest to a party without asking NeNe first! Ugh, the nerve. Thankfully, NeNe has reached a higher plane of awareness. She is making amends to the people who have done HER wrong, revealing what viewers already knew. NeNe really is the bigger person after all.
It took Melissa Gorga a few years to admit to her
four nose jobs nose job, even though Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers definitely noticed. She only copped to the cosmetic enhancement when RHONJ OG Jacqueline Laurita screamed at her during the Season 7 cast trip in Vermont.
Jacqueline said that she got her nose done four times, but Melissa
only admitted to one said she went under the knife once. Oh, how times have changed. Recently, Melissa, Porsha Williams, and Sonja Morgan collaborating on a song and music video dedicated to plastic surgery. Now, Melissa is considering another cosmetic procedure.
Who doesn’t love it when Housewives from different franchises cross paths? It always makes for some intriguing tidbits and unique perspectives on other Housewives.
Tinsley Mortimer, who stars on Real Housewives of New York, started to come out of her shell more this season. She dealt with the death of her beloved dog, Bambi. This season she ended her romance with Scott Kluth. She cried a lot. And her fellow New York Housewives speculated about Tinsley’s spending habits. Poor Tinsley is also dealing with an overbearing mother, Dale Mercer, who wants Tinsley to defrost her frozen eggs and deliver a grandchild—pronto!
