I will never understand why Sheree Whitfield got fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta. Meanwhile, some boring people got to stay on the show way longer than they should have.
The proud “bone carrier” always made sure we got all the tea. She gave the best reads. She also has the perfect level of delusion to entertain us all (She by Sheree, anyone? Where are the joggers?). And, during her last season, she was building a man cave for her then-boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams who was in prison. She always brought a lot to the table.
Before Real Housewives of Salt Lake City even started airing, we all knew that Mary Cosby married her step-grandfather, Robert Cosby Sr. We were all under the impression (because she told us) that her grandmother asked her to do so.
Mary became a First Lady of their church in addition to inheriting some restaurants, more homes than she can count, Chanel bags (that may or may not make her happy), and a bunch of throne-like chairs. Well, I don’t know if she inherited the chairs or if she just bought them with that church/restaurant money, but I’m just looking for a plausible explanation for her decor. The more Mary that I see, the more fascinated I am by her. In contrast, Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant doesn’t feel that way. She wants less Mary on Season 2.
StripperGate is FINALLY here. After months of speculation about what’s going to go down, we are finally close to some answers. This has been a slow and rocky season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, so the drama is welcomed. Anything that’s able to spice up this dry season sounds good right about now. Cynthia Bailey has no idea what she’s in store for with this bachelorette party.
Kandi Burruss is the perfect person to throw this type of event too. She always knows how to have a good time, and you know it’s going to get freaky. The question looming over everything though is just how freaky will things get? What is the limit for these ladies? How far is too far? Who is going to be caught with their pants down with a stripper? It’s time to let him out of his box. RELEASE BOLO.
Kate Chastain may be done wearing a khaki skirt with a polyester polo on Below Deck, but she still (clearly) has a strong relationship with the Bravo network. She and Porsha Williams executive produce and host the virtual talk show Bravo’s Chat Room. Or at least they did. Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant and Summer House’s Hannah Berner have also served as co-hosts.
However, Kate has been absent from the most recent episodes. And, now, she’s apparently done with the job. But, why is that? It’s not as if she could blame her exit on the commute since it’s a virtual job. (Lame joke…. let’s continue).
We’ve seen Real Housewives (and former Housewives) on Below Deck charters, including Cynthia Bailey, Alexis Bellino, and Kary Brittingham (pre-Real Housewives of Dallas). What would it be like if they were actually cast members, working long hours and wearing khaki skorts? It would certainly be a short-lived experience, but it would probably be interesting to watch.
We’ve seen Bravolebrities pretend to be waitresses at SUR, but there’s no faking it on one of these Below Deck charters. They really do have work to do. Could you imagine a Real Housewife rocking one of those polyester polo shirts? Below Deck alum Kate Chastain sure can. She’s even come up with some names to be her second and third stew.
It’s a tall task, but I promise we can get through this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The knowledge that StripperGate is around the corner is the only thing making this bearable. We know it’s going to cause an uproar within the group, but getting to that point is like watching paint dry. How can there be nine episodes so far this season where literally nothing ever happens?
Kenya Moore is making a run for the worst host of all time, and she doesn’t even care. These women have had enough of the double standards and hypocrisy from Ms. Twirl. Everyone’s irritated with her, and it’s only the second night. Marlo Hampton has finally had enough of the shady actions directed toward her, and she’s confronting the wicked witch of the ATL. Maybe, just MAYBE this will give us the fireworks we desperately deserve to watch.
Before Bravo made reality stars out of people who don’t actually live in reality, the ladies featured on our shows had to pay the bills. Some of them were still on their first faces and first marriages. Quite a few of them were dipping their toes in the world of acting. The women on Real Housewives of Atlanta all come from various entertainment backgrounds and had pretty close encounters with fame.
Kandi Burruss is probably the most successful businesswoman currently on the show. Back in the 90’s Kandi’s group Xscape was a thing, and there was a time when nothing but TLC songs Kandi wrote played on the local radio station. Obviously Cynthia Bailey was one of the first mainstream Black models and opened the door during a time when women of color were not highlighted on magazine covers. And then we have Kenya Moore. Back in
the stone ages 1993, Kenya won the Miss America USA title and managed to receive some onset accolades from a VERY famous diva. Spoiler alert, Kenya was terrified of her.
