While Vicki Gunvalson (probably) cried over losing her orange, Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice feels very differently about being a reality TV star. Recently, the RHONJ cast member admitted that she has “never enjoyed” filming the show.
That’s hard to believe considering that she supports her four daughters filming this show. However, she has really gone through it. She argued with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga for many seasons. Teresa denied legal problems for many years before landing in jail herself. Now, she’s waiting to see if her estranged husband Joe Giudice gets deported to Italy. She sure hasn’t had the easiest time, but overall, the show has done a lot for her.
Can’t we all just get along? Not in Hotlanta, baby. It’s a policy that seems to be working for NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s career is somewhat based on her negative attitude. NeNe iced out good friends Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams in the path of destruction she spearheaded last season. Triggered by Kenya Moore, NeNe managed to alienate most of her co-stars and challenge the core values of friendship.
After demoting Cynthia and Porsha, the cast had little to do with NeNe. Contract negotiations delayed her return in front of the cameras, but Season 12 finds NeNe standing by the wayside. It seems her only
minion ally is Marlo Hampton, who remains loyal to NeNe because it might lead to a peach. But now Marlo might be in the hot seat. After Cynthia found herself engaged to Mike Hill, the cast celebrated the occasion at a filmed venue. To no one’s surprise NeNe didn’t show, but minion Marlo did. Is Marlo’s wig next on NeNe’s chopping block? Needy NeNe is once again on the train of denial, she addresses her reaction to Cynthia’s engagement and Marlo’s thirstiness supposed betrayal.
There’s just something so special about Real Housewives from different shows coming together no matter what the reason is. Whether it’s a joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live, an Instagram photo together, or some other event, it’s just always fun to see Real Housewives interacting.
Recently, Melissa Gorga, Sonja Morgan, and Porsha Williams collaborated on a song about something they know well: gettting work done. They even filmed a music video for the track, which included funny appearances from Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge.
After months of speaking it into existence, Cynthia Bailey is engaged! Mike Hill popped the question on July 26. And, yes, Real Housewives of Atlanta is filming Season 12 right now. Of course, this was caught on film.
Aside from that, Mike had some professional photographers on hand to document the moment and a rep for the couple sent some pictures our way!
Some people (especially NeNe Leakes) are not at all happy to see Kenya Moore’s return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I am not one of those people. Look, I know we were all pissed that Kenya ran off and got secretly married without a camera in sight. We know we weren’t really entitled to be there, but we should have been invited. It’s like when your friend from college who you haven’t talked to in 10 years gets married and you hear about it on Facebook. You probably had no reason to get an invite, and you definitely wouldn’t have traveled to Norman, Oklahoma to sit next to Aunt Bea and eat rubbery chicken. But you’re still indignant that you weren’t invited. Venting for a friend.
Kenya seems to be a true narcissist, with absolutely no regard for tact or social norms. Those character traits make for a terrible human, but a great reality television persona. So great that last season Kenya wasn’t even on the show, but, like, 2/3 of the reunion centered around her appearance at a party.
Kim Zolciak Biermann’s whole ask, believe, and receive schtick has really worked out. Kim parlayed being someone’s ALLEGED mistress on Real Housewives of Atlanta to the wife and mother of six with her own show. She managed to rope in a former NFL player, build her dream house, and have several facial renovations. As Kim kept birthing babies, viewers watched her brood grow on Don’t Be Tardy.
Fans of RHOA know Kim is no wallflower. Her kids aren’t shy either, raised in a household being constantly filmed. Brielle and Ariana Biermann have grown up in public. They’ve also been subject to ridicule and criticized for personal choices. If a celebrity parent chooses to purposely place their kid in the spotlight, any outbursts will be publicized. Entitlement is center stage and famous people often get a hall pass, despite their poor behavior. Recently the Biermanns found out that just because you think you’re above it all that doesn’t mean everybody else does.
People have high hopes for Real Housewives of Atlanta, Season 12 is off and running. Most of us are still recovering from the trauma NeNe Leakes put us through. A certain cameraman is still recovering too. Last year, we saw Eva Marcille level up to peach holder, and she definitely wasn’t boring. Fans watched her get married and drop a verbal house on Marlo Hampton in Tokyo. There was also some scandal about her financial state, but most of these ladies
can’t pay their taxes have been down that road.
Eva is currently cooking her third child. This is great news for her
storyline family, as cameras are rolling while she prepares to welcome her new addition. Another new addition is Kenya Moore. She’s back and ready to party. Word on the street is, Eva is none too thrilled with Ms. Kenya. Is there drama looming oh you bet it is on the horizon for Eva? Kenya just might be the one new addition the pregnant Housewife could do without.
Remember back to a simpler time on Real Housewives of Atlanta? When women could show off their thongs and tout the miracle of having a donkey booty? Phaedra Parks was a Housewife like no other. She was an expert on southern etiquette, all the while also being an attorney and working in the mortuary business.
For eight seasons viewers watched Phaedra and her drama-filled marriage to ex-con, and current convict, Apollo Nida. Their union gradually crumbled after the duo welcomed two sons into their family. Apollo landed in trouble again in 2014 and was sentenced to eight years for identity theft and fraud. He was released in June of 2019 but sent back to prison a few days later for violating the half-way house rules. Phaedra eventually divorced Apollo. Shocker!
