You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
The true star of this otherwise dry season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is Bolo the stripper. He performed at
COVID Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party (while hilariously wearing a face shield) and was a big hit among the women in more ways than one. Word on Kenya Moore’s street is that after the cameras turned off, a few women got up close and personal with the stripper.
It’s been the main plotline of the season. We have Drew Sidora vs. Latoya Ali debating about Drew’s behavior at the party. Kenya is doing anything she can to throw Tanya Sam and Porsha Williams under the bus for getting too close to Bolo. It’s also indirectly causing friction between Porsha and Marlo Hampton’s friendship. And maybe it’s all because Kenya is jealous she didn’t get some one-on-one time with Mr. Bolo.
There’s definitely something to love about each of our Real Housewives of Atlanta. As a group, these women consistently bring it season after season. That’s not to say the non-peach holders aren’t just as important. Marlo Hampton has certainly earned an honorable mention. This year, LaToya Ali and Falynn Guobadia have also brought some highly entertaining content. Faylynn running around her house with a head full of snakes trying to club Toya was PEAK.
Lucky for us, it seems LaToya and Faylynn will be at it with each other for a while following the Halloween party events. Earlier in the season, they both attended Kandi Burruss’ Kandi C.A.R.E.S food drive. At the time, it seemed the drama was focused around whether or not Kenya Moore donated to the cause. During the episode, Kandi mentioned not all of her friends were as giving as she had expected. Later we learned Kenya had actually gave a sizeable $5k to the cause. So who was being stingy with their dollars?
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta have hit the streets of the Big Easy, but it’s been a hard time. Marlo Hampton keeps finding herself stuck in the middle of Kenya Moore & Porsha Williams’ feud. Her newfound friendship with Kenya has put her in positions she never expected. She’s never been forced to pick sides between the two because in the past, she and Kenya were on the outs. We’re officially stepping into unknown territory.
The one thing that’s clear though is Kenya & Porsha will NEVER be friends. Whatever small blip of peace they had last season is out the window. This season has been nothing but ill will from both sides. Nobody whose side you’re on, on some level the constant toxicity between them must be draining. Normally, Porsha would be popping off at Kenya’s every move. However, this season she’s taking a laxer approach. Will paying Kenya dust pasy off in the end?
It seems like at least one person on every reality TV show ends up facing tax issues at one point. On Real Housewives of Potomac, we’ve (sort of) seen Karen Huger and Ray Huger owe “millions” in back taxes and Robyn Dixon make a $90,000 mistake on her reports to the IRS. Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams and others from the Real Housewives of Atlanta have had tax issues of their own. And in Beverly Hills, Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Vanderpump, despite their separate successes, have both been caught up with tax issues of their own.
It’s no doubt that the financial issues surrounding reality stars are more high profile no matter the situation. Hey, filing taxes isn’t easy for an everyday person, let alone someone on Bravo with several businesses, assets and expenditures to keep track of. And while there are honest mistakes, it is fascinating to read that those we think of the rich and famous might be facing financial woes off-screen, even if their on-camera appearances show otherwise.
The feud between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams will truly never end on the Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Even though they made up for about 2 seconds last season, they just don’t mesh. And during this week’s episode, Marlo Hampton found herself right in the middle of their feud, which is probably the worst place to be as a friend.
Porsha confronted Marlo about them growing distant aka she’s mad and jealous that her friend made up with her enemy. While the timing was questionable of their makeup (Kenya needed an ally during #strippergate), Marlo was not into being told who she can and can’t hang with.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has centered on Cynthia Bailey’s wedding to sportscaster Mike Hill. And Cynthia’s wild bachelorette party in South Carolina. Stripper Bolo allegedly hooked up with two of the RHOA peaches. We’re looking at you, Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam!
In April of 2018, Cynthia and Mike met on Steve Harvey’s talk show, Steve. Mike was one of three eligible bachelors that Cynthia could select to date. In 2019, after Cynthia and Mike were dating for a year, Cynthia let it be known that she expected to marry Mike in 2020. No pressure, right?
LaToya Ali may be a newbie this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she is serving up the drama. LaToya has frequently clashed with fellow freshman cast member, Drew Sidora. Fun fact: Kenya Moore cannot stand Drew, either. LaToya has said that Drew’s husband, Ralph Pittman, doesn’t care about her.
During Cynthia Bailey’s rowdy bachelorette party, stripper Bolo came to perform for the ladies. LaToya ended up making out with RHOA co-star Porsha Williams. She also called out Drew for her behavior with Bolo.
