This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we are seeing Porsha Williams on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement. She has come such a long way from earlier seasons and is honoring her grandfather Hosea Williams’ legacy in the Civil Rights movement.
In June, Porsha was at a peaceful protest march in Atlanta when tear gas was used on the crowd. Porsha was arrested. In August, the RHOA star was arrested again in Louisville, Kentucky during another peaceful protest.
Monique Samuels took her toys and left the Real Housewives of Potomac sandbox. Or did she? I think by now we are all pretty much aware of Bravo’s generous method of allowing fired Housewives to control their exit narrative. Normal policy and procedure is to offer the departing individual their own spin on how they chose to leave. Unless you are Vicki Gunvalson and remain in a state of confused begging until your last day on Earth.
Let’s face it, if it weren’t for Monique lending a helping hand to style Candiace Dillard’s wig, people would still not be talking about RHOP. No one cares about Robyn Dixon’s hats or DOCTOR Wendy Osefo’s degrees. And despite the grandeur of Karen Huger, it wasn’t her living situation that made viewers watch. Monique and Candiace gave the show a heartbeat, and it seemed like no cast changes would happen in the wake of Mo and Candy’s battle royale. Until news that Monique was not returning began making the rounds. Now Monique speaks on what helped her make the decision not to come back to the show she helped put on the map.
This season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been unlike any other. The focus on the harsh realities of the world we live in has transformed the lens of the show. Watching Porsha Williams fight against racial injustice has been one of the biggest evolutions EVER. In addition to the protesting, the pandemic has also been front and center this season. Cynthia Bailey’s dream wedding is turning into a possible nightmare as a result.
One thing that’s been missing a bit is the group scenes between the women. We haven’t seen Porsha interact with any of the main cast in person yet which is highly unusual. It’s only a matter of time before she and Kenya Moore reignite their long rivalry and send us even closer to Strippergate. The newbies this season Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali have also brought a much needed new vibe to the series. HIGH KEY loving this season.
For some reason, Bravo’s Chat Room hasn’t been canceled
yet. Despite serving up sub-par entertainment, the show is stirring up some drama.
Porsha Williams defended her good friend Monique Samuels amidst Monique’s ongoing feud with Candiace Dillard. And, well, Candiace didn’t take too kindly to that.
The new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is finally picking up some steam! Porsha Williams is still on the frontlines of justice advocating against systemic racism. We LOVE to see it. However, back in the group, some early drama is starting to form. Drew Sidora made her debut last week, and she was immediately disliked by Kenya Moore. What did she do to get on Kenya’s bad side already? This feels premeditated.
The other new face on the scene is LaToya Ali, and she’s quite the thirsty thing. She doesn’t care for Drew, she’s becoming super fast friends with Kenya, and she has the weirdest marriage arrangement. Yup, she can stay. Fresh faces that make an impact is what this show needs, and it finally feels like we got just that. These girls have potential to be mainstays on the show for many years to come. Let’s see what they get into next!
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans have heard all about Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam’s “alleged” hookup with exotic dancer Michael Bolwaire at Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party. Normally, Cynthia’s “annual” events only happen one time and fail to provide interesting content. But, this one might come through for us.
Tanya, who has been engaged to Paul Judge for centuries, denied the hookup. Newly single Porsha doesn’t seem to be at-all-phased by the chatter. In contrast, Tanya reportedly just stopped filming. So, where does Kenya Moore fit into all this? She’s carrying the spoon, ready to stir the pot, of course. However, that’s not exactly how she sees it.
We have all heard that Karen Huger is “not impressed” by Wendy Osefo, but what did Karen say about Wendy that is so awful? We never really got to see that. Instead, we saw Gizelle Bryant misquoting Karen, sharing sentiments that were supposedly shared off-camera, and possibly straight up lying about things Karen didn’t say.
Pretty much every time Wendy was upset about something Karen “said,” it was only something that we saw Gizelle relay to her. Did Karen call her a freelancing floozy? Not that we saw. Aside from playing the most distorted game of telephone ever, Gizelle has another platform to skew the narrative, Bravo’s Chat Room. I tried to give the show a chance, but it just isn’t it (Porsha Williams is a great host, though). Aside from the obviously forced chatter and Gizelle’s horrid fashions, it’s just become a medium for Gizelle to push her own narrative and get in a few digs at her frenemies. I removed Bravo’s Chat Room from my DVR, which is saying a lot considering that I still watch Real Housewives of Orange County, a show that’s clearly jumped the shark.
Season 13 of Real Housewives of Atlanta is back, and better than ever. NeNe Leakes bid farewell to her peach after last season. The constant arguing between NeNe and Kenya Moore was too much to take.
RHOA viewers have seen Porsha Williams working on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement. She was arrested twice for protesting peacefully. Good for you, Porsha!
