Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.
I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Did you remember? Hopefully. If you didn’t, it’s not too late to get her the perfect gift though. This is especially true if she is a reality TV fanatic just like you are.
There are many products made by and inspired by your favorite reality TV stars that would be perfect Mother’s Day gifts. It gets better though. They are all available on Amazon. This means you can ship them ASAP and cover your ass if you forgot about the holiday. If you’re reading this way too late in the game, you can just use Prime Shipping to get gifts to her as close to the holiday as you can. If you really have to you can blame the lateness on shipping delays if you didn’t shop in time.
Clearly, she’d take Phaedra over her ex-bestie Cynthia Bailey. NeNe denounced Cynthia to “coworker status” after the season finale antics. NeNe is also done with Friend of the Housewives Tanya Sam. Or is it the other way around? After giving Tanya hell all season long, their friendship fell apart. So what happens when NeNe, Phaedra, Cynthia, and Tanya all end up in the same place? They take pictures to get attention. Separately, of course.
NeNe is the current record holder in the steep climb to Mount Petty, she will probably hold this title for a long time… Her antics were suffered by the entire RHOA cast, and viewers felt it as well. Is there anything else NeNe could do to tell the world she is a bitter bitch woman on a mission to reign supreme in Atlanta? YUP.
On Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss is all about business. She is always launching (and talking about) a new project. Does she ever take time to herself? Well, it is very rare, but it does happen.
Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker headed to Thailand to celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary. That is pretty much an eternity in reality TV years. They probably won’t be able to vacation on their own for a while since they are hoping to have another child via surrogate in the near future.
Marlo Hampton has pretty much been a fixture on Real Housewives of Atlanta since she started popping up in Season 4. Marlo has always appeared as either a guest or Friend of the Housewives. Let’s face it –Marlo loves nothing more than shading a co-star or spilling all the tea. She never fails to bring the drama.
Marlo didn’t disappoint during Season 11 of RHOA. She was told by one of Eva Marcille’s bridesmaids that Eva and her husband didn’t live in the town home featured on the show, and that the couple has severe financial problems. She gifted Eva some wedding shade by telling NeNe Leakesand Tanya Sam all about it. Marlo also targeted newbie Shamari DeVoe. Marlo told Shamari (and everyone else in the world) that Shamari has a drinking problem. Of course, Shamari did get drunk and vomit all over Eva’s shoes and NeNe’s bathroom at NeNe’s party. Before that, Marlo tried to give Shamari some unsolicited and unwelcome fashion advice. As viewers know, Marlo prides herself on being a fashionista.
Porsha is literally 30,000 weeks pregnant and spending her remaining days eating any and every product made from pork. There’s a bacon, there’s sausage, there’s ham steak, there’s honey baked ham, there’s salami, there’s eggs cooked in bacon grease, there’s apple sauce with ham… Wasn’t Porsha vegan at some point?!
It seems like Porsha is focusing on food to avoid all the very real issues in her life. Like Dennis McKinley is living in the basement, and Dennis’ mother, Gina, is literally and figuratively moving in as well, and no one is sure who exactly invited her! Maybe Gina can go into the basement with the rest of Dennis’s stuff?
