When Real Housewives of Atlanta producers asked Kenya Moore if Drew Sidora’s husband Ralph Pittman was good looking during one of her confessional interviews, I could not help getting flashbacks to Kenya and Apollo Nida flirting it up back in the day. On every cast trip, they irked his then-wife Phaedra Parks. She was so annoyed that she wore that whole mesh bathing suit/ coverup ensemble.
They argued about this at multiple reunions. Apollo even claimed that Kenya came on to him off-camera when they were both in Los Angeles. Phaedra slut-shamed Kenya for years. Kenya disrespected Phaedra’s marriage for years. It was just such a messy situation, all around. Then, right before Apollo was set to go into prison he finally spit out the truth: he never saw Kenya in LA. He made that whole thing up. Regardless, the damage was done. Phaedra and Kenya’s animosity produced some iconic moments, but does she regret any of it?
Truth be told there isn’t much happening on Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, other than LaToya Ali doing the most, even though she’s just a part-time cast member. Meanwhile, full-time Housewife Drew Sidora only just started filming group scenes. Why is she a Housewife again? It’s certainly not for the hair, makeup, or fashions. What is she bringing to the table? Other than some yawn-inducing solo scenes and some shade from Kenya Moore.
During the last episode, the two newbies got into a squabble
for camera time. LaToya was extremely passive aggressive buying Drew a new wig. Drew returned the favor by giving her a signed photograph of herself, categorizing LaToya as a “fan.” And, LaToya continued to run her mouth on Twitter, while she was live-tweeting the episode.
Most of the time, these Bravo cast trips appear to be anything but fun. Sure, they’re getting paid to film and they’re getting a lot for free, but the “vacations” just seem so dramatic.
In addition to all of that, the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast seemed to be starving during the last episode. While they were all waiting for a chef to finish roasting a pig, Kenya ordered an individual meal for herself. Obviously, this bothered the cast members, who were already annoyed with Kenya before they even got to South Carolina. And, don’t even get me started on that bootleg attempt at a murder mystery.
Drew Sidora joined Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 13, and she is a solid addition to the cast. Drew has marital issues with her husband, Ralph Pittman. Ralph disappeared for three days with no communication. Drew needs a GPS tracker for her husband.
Drew is also dealing with shade from RHOA co-star Kenya Moore, and Kenya’s newbie mini-me, LaToya Ali. Kenya and LaToya insulted one of Drew’s wigs, and Kenya called Drew “a stray.” Ouch!
Someone please tell the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to get their act together. Has there ever been a season of Atlanta this boring before? They’re even cutting out dramatic scenes that they advertised? What’s up with that? We all know the women are going on a trip to Charleston, so the potential for drama is there. Group scenes are key to a successful season, and this season has been lacking in that. FINALLY, the group will be all together.
With the entire group finally about to be in the same place, the true dynamics can finally begin. There’s been a few little side feuds so far, but now allegiances will be formed. Sides will be chosen. Kenya Moore is trying her hardest to stir the pot, but nobody is taking the bait. The biggest thing looming within the group is the upcoming StripperGate drama. In what ways will an alleged night with the stripper change the course of this season?
Welcome to another week of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta: Cynthia Bailey’s Wedding Edition. It’s starting to feel like this wedding is going to drag out all season. Between that and the lack of group scenes, this is a season on the verge of flopping. Thankfully Kenya Moore is working overtime to deliver the shade because if she wasn’t, what else would be going on? That’s a serious question. It’s cute that everyone is getting along, but SNOOZE.
Cynthia has a tall task ahead of her this week. She’s going to summon up the courage to tell her mother she’s inviting her alleged abusive father to her wedding. That’ll surely go over like a lead balloon. I’m sure her mother’s going to be thrilled with the prospect of seeing the man who hurt her so deeply at the wedding. It’s Cynthia’s big day, but is her mother going to find that to be a justifiable enough excuse?
Drew Sidora is one of the newbies on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We learned about Drew’s marital troubles with her husband, Ralph Pittman. It seems that Ralph likes to disappear for days without telling Drew where he is. I give this marriage about three months before they split.
Naturally, Drew is despised by fellow peach-holder Kenya Moore because she is new. Kenya and LaToya Ali, the other addition to the RHOA cast, took an instant dislike to Drew at Cynthia Bailey’s wine testing party. In fact, Kenya called Drew a “stray.”
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.
