Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion

Kandi Burruss Says Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion Will Be Filmed Online Because Of Coronavirus Pandemic

In addition to all of its other consequences, coronavirus has also derailed some of our favorite reality TV shows. Yes, we are all well-aware that this isn’t the most critical result of the virus, but this is a reality TV website, after all. Additionally, there are many people whose livelihoods depend on filming those shows. There are lots of crew members, hair and makeup artists, the restaurants that cater events. And, of course, there are the viewers who just want to watch their favorite (and least favorite) cast members in action.

In March, Andy Cohen confirmed that the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion was postponed due to coronavirus concerns. He has emphasized many times over that it was “postponed,” not canceled. After that, Andy tested positive for coronavirus. Understandably, he took some time to rest and recuperate. Additionally, Andy said that it just wouldn’t be the same to film the show via video chat. However, this pandemic is still happening. Businesses are shut down. People are isolated at home. We don’t truly know how long this will last. Could it be time to switch up the format and just give in to the video chat? Apparently, we will be getting the RHOA reunion sooner rather than later.

NeNe Leakes & Porsha Williams Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion

Part 3 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion was like a loaded baked potato. So many morsels to digest!

So first what about Porsha Williams belt!? We’re back in NeNe Leakescloset of horrors where she didn’t want her Kim Zolciak wig shrine discovered so she used force, magical crystals, and Jedi Mind Tricks to keep all her friends out. Or maybe there were roaches in there – who knows?

What we do know is that at some point NeNe choked out a producer, scratched him, and had him pinned against the wall, but she doesn’t feel bad about it at all. This producer also suffered from a cracked (or lost?) tooth and had to go to the hospital for injuries.  This was after NeNe reportedly shoved a pregnant Porsha and ripped a cameraman’s shirt trying to stop him from entering the closet. I don’t believe Porsha filmed audio of her yelling “I’m scared” after the fact.

Well, I Am living for Porsha Williams on this Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion! And I am really LIVING for the return of the fan. I can only hope it was a gift from Kenya Moore to further piss NeNe Leakes off! Gone with the wind fabulous, but not forgotten from those sofas, sista!

Porsha is not having any of NeNe’s nonsense this reunion and for that I say: YES. Because NO to NeNe’s nonsense and awful attitude and rude unnecessary comments. Claiming you are having a breakdown is not an excuse to verbally and physically assault your friends and co-workers, NeNe! If NeNe has questions about this, she can run it by OSHA to see what they have to say about her workplace behavior.

But first – how are things between Porsha and Kandi Burruss who appeared to be getting along quite well in the latter half of this season as they came together for good against a common enemy (NeNe)? Well, Kandi and Porsha are still not so super good – meaning not following each other on Insta.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes has said (many times) that Real Housewives of Atlanta is her show. Even so, she didn’t want to participate during Part 1 of the RHOA reunion. She just didn’t care to be there and just whined about how no one was there for her…. even though everyone was there for her all season long.

Let’s hope NeNe had an attitude adjustment for part two. Unfortunately, that’s just not likely, but it’s bound to be entertaining anyway.

NeNe Leakes

Real Housewives Of Atlanta is really milking the everyone vs. NeNe Leakes scenario for all it’s worth – and I am so glad! NeNe has been prancing around like Marie Antoinette with her wigs piled high on her fake haughty head and it’s time for a new queen [hair flip!]. Or no queen, and just a equal well-connected cast of women who have fun, light drama, and interesting lives.

Seriously, though, I’m excited by the insurgency of the rest of the cast with their unwillingness to uphold the narrative that NeNe has immunity. She doesn’t nor should she. It’s more than about time that NeNe’s wig glue melted! NeNe is essentially mad for the sake of being mad  (or maybe, benefit of the doubt: there’s some stuff we, the viewers, didn’t see).

After a [low-rated, boring ass] season of making everything about how NeNe is feeling and not upsetting the NeNe cart, NeNe’s now accusing everyone of turning on her. She expects Andy Cohen to support her to get the other women in line. But it’s not going to go that way. Not this time! 

Behind The Scenes Photos From Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion

After a season that got off to a super slow fashion-filled start, Real Housewives of Atlanta delivered with the finale episode. Actually, the season redeemed itself as soon as NeNe Leakes stormed into her closet and kicked out Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss. Oh, and she pulled off a cameraman’s shirt. And (allegedly) pregnant Porsha’s belt.

From that point on, the tension was thick and NeNe had more enemies than friends. There has been a lot of social media messiness and shade thrown ever since the reunion taping. NeNe actually unfollowed everyone from the show except for Marlo Hampton and Shamari DeVoe? What about her “little sis” Porsha and her other “little sis” that she talks shit about Eva Marcille? Yep, they’re unfollowed. Even Tanya Sam, arguably the nicest person in the cast, got unfollowed. Then again, NeNe was coming for her all season, so it was just a matter of time. So what exactly went down at the reunion?

After making her husband’s cancer diagnosis about her, NeNe Leakes continues to make everything possible about her. Again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 reunion trailer just dropped. And, for the most part, it’s NeNe against everyone else.

That makes sense since nothing happened for the first half of the season. Other than fashion-induced arguments. Then Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss went into NeNe’s closet and all hell broke loose. I’m actually surprised NeNe isn’t sitting on a barstool alone across from a long sofa full of Housewives. It seems like no one is on her side. Well, except for Marlo Hampton. And apparently Shamari DeVoe. They are the only two cast members that NeNe follows on Instagram after the reunion taping.

Kyle Richards Doesn’t Think Kim Zolciak Is Racist; Would Welcome Her On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Even though most of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast has turned against Kim Zolciak after her behavior this past season and her post-reunion rant, the same can’t be said for Real Housewives of different cities.

NeNe Leakes may want nothing to do with Kim, but Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards would welcome the OG Atlanta cast member to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
