Sometimes there is that one celebrity who wasn’t hashtag blessed with a dialogue filter. Or any accurate perception of reality. Case in point, still-employed-for-now, NeNe Leakes. Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers are well aware of NeNe’s explosive personality.
Season 12 was not all peaches and champagne for NeNe. Hell, she wasn’t even around for the first few episodes after getting checked for her attitude. NeNe claimed to be on a “spiritual journey”, but I’m not sure it took. She was still volatile. Still plagued by jealousy. And NeNe kept up with her favorite role, victim. You might think NeNe plateaued as the martyr of RHOA when she complained about caring for her husband during cancer treatment. Now she has surpassed even that. In an effort to explain her disastrous appearance on the reunion, NeNe likened herself to an unarmed black man murdered by a police officer. Yep, she went there.
During the latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, NeNe Leakes walked out. It’s unclear if that is the end of her time on the reunion or if she will be back for more fighting on part 3.
The season 12 reunion concludes with one more episode. And that means we will have to sit through yet another Yovanna Momplaisir appearance. No one cares about Yovanna. Bravo just needs to stop trying to make Yovanna happen. No one wants to see her. Ever.
The current Real Housewives of Atlanta season started out with NeNe Leakes‘ absence, from multiple episodes. People, i.e. Kenya Moore, wondered if this meant NeNe was getting phased out of the show. NeNe and Kenya have been shading each other and downright insulting each other all season long.
They went toe to toe during the first two episodes of the reunion. However, NeNe just disappeared during the second episode. And since it’s a virtual reunion, she’s at her home without production. She’s not even in the preview for the final episode. Does that mean she doesn’t come back? It’s unclear at this point, but Kenya has a lot to say about it, as expected.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta virtual reunion continues tonight with part two. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams discuss where their friendship went wrong. At the start of Season 12, Porsha and Kenya were on the same page and their friendship was super enjoyable to watch after their years of feuding. Even their adorable daughters played together. Then, things somehow went left and the shift in their dynamic was pretty unclear.
However, their short-lived friendship never had a chance as soon as Porsha made up with NeNe Leakes during the cast trip in Greece. NeNe and Kenya are sworn enemies. So, any hope of Kenya and Porsha returning to a new place was basically crushed as soon as Porsha and NeNe made up. So, of course, NeNe jumps in on this discussion and gets into another heated discussion with Kenya during tonight’s episode.
Tonight is the night! Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies are ready to recap the season and rehash the drama. The reunion may be virtual, but the drama seems pretty damn real. I’m not gonna lie, I’m really curious to see how it all come together under such unconventional circumstances.
The reunion brings us back to the start of the season: NeNe Leakes and her apology tour. Going into Season 12, NeNe basically had zero friends in the cast. Well, except for Marlo Hampton, but Marlo doesn’t even have a peach. During tonight’s reunion episode, Eva Marcille questions NeNe’s intentions with her apologies. Obviously, NeNe just wants to film this show, regardless of how many times she mentions sisterhood.
After a slight delay and some adjustments in response to global pandemic, the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion is on the way. Andy Cohen dished on the season virtually, with everyone filming safely from their homes. And, no, that doesn’t mean that they dressed casually. They all dressed the nines and they even had some good lighting in there.
While a true reunion can never be completely replaced, the RHOA ladies made the most of the circumstances.
NeNe Leakes is heated after that Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion taping. Other than Porsha Williams, she seems to have no full-time cast members on her side. At least, she has part-timers Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam for support. However, they weren’t on hand for the whole reunion taping.
On the opposite side was a team led by Kenya Moore. That group includes Kandi Burruss, who has been beefing in the press with NeNe lately. NeNe has been shading Eva Marcille for adding nothing to the show. So, now she’s #TeamKenya. And, then there’s Cynthia Bailey. She made peace with NeNe, but she takes residence up Kenya’s ass. So, we all know where her loyalties lie when it comes down to it.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast filmed the season 12 reunion this past weekend via video chat. And the next day, NeNe Leakes shared all of the issues that she had with the day.
Yes, NeNe is an extremely polarizing figure on this show, but based on her account, it’s pretty clear she was sabotaged by production to be the odd one out during the taping. Of course, that is if her story is true. Let’s see what the OG housewife had to say. You be the judge.
