Months later, it’s still hard to get over how epic Andy Cohen’s baby shower was. Imagine all of those Real Housewives on a moving float. Plus cast members from Vanderpump Rules, Southern Charm, Below Deck, and Shahs of Sunset. That was the Bravo float for the Pride celebration in New York City this past weekend.
Andy gathered the most enthusiastic group of Bravolebrities. They dressed up in festive rainbow outfits. They danced, sang, and they had a few cocktails, of course.
Life may not be a cabaret, but this season of Real Housewives of New York basically was. Luann de Lesseps’ Countess and Friends show was the talk of the season. She was very proud of her ever-expanding act, but the other ladies were just tired of hearing about it.
During one episode, they joked about drinking every time the word “cabaret” was uttered. That is a dangerous idea, especially since every single one of them mentioned it many times over. The cabaret madness all came to a head during Bethenny Frankel’s diatribe in Miami. Just like the rest of us, Lu has been watching the season. And, believe it or not, she knows exactly how she comes across. Luann broke down the fourth wall during an exclusive interview with Reality Tea.
The new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is already stirring up the drama. We know
fan favorite Kenya Moore has possibly returned in all of her glory. We know Porsha Williams’ recent break-up with Dennis McKinley will play out. And word on the street was NeNe Leakes, everyone’s favorite ray of sunshine, was being “shut out” of filming. Meaning, she pissed everyone off so much last year, no one will hang out with her.
Amid speculation that NeNe might not return to the show, there were rumors she received a very hefty increase in salary. When production began on Season 12, NeNe was like Dennis’ loyalty, nowhere to be found. But fear not, NeNe made sure to squash those silly rumors when she let everyone know she wasn’t gone, just in the midst of intense contract negotiations. Many viewers hoped this was a sign that NeNe was ultimately let go after her cantankerous attitude did her no favors last year. Well, the mystery has been solved. If you were worried NeNe was going to quietly ride off into the sunset, then worry no more. She’s back.
Gina Kirschenheiter joined Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 13, and it was clear that there were issues in her marriage to Matt Kirschenheiter. His insane travel commitments left her basically operating as a single parent to their three children. In April of 2018, Gina filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”
The couple seemed like they may have been in the process of reconciling. Their social media posts certainly hinted that perhaps Gina and Matthew were rekindling their romance.
Lately it seems like Real Housewives of Atlanta has revolved around NeNe Leakes. She dealt with her husband, Gregg Leakes’, cancer battle. She even implied that he was ill because karma was paying him back for cheating on her. Really, NeNe? That is about as low as you can go.
Unless, of course, you are throwing RHOA co-stars Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams out of your closet and ripping a camera man’s shirt in the process. NeNe later made fun of Porsha’s weight and body-shamed the new mom just days after she gave birth. That isn’t cool, NeNe.
NeNe Leakes is having a tough year. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, was battling cancer. And battling NeNe. Also battling NeNe? The majority of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast and some of the crew. But don’t feel sorry for NeNe, the majority of her battles are of her own making. NeNe threatened to “f*uck up” a cameraman. She physically assaulted Porsha Williams and another crew member in a closet. NeNe denounced her friendship with Cynthia Bailey. She fat-shamed Porsha approximately 6.2 seconds after Porsha expelled a human from her body.
Despite NeNe’s distasteful-bordering-on-criminal behavior, rumors have been swirling that she will receive a raise for appearing on RHOA Season 12. In fact, word on the (Peachtree) street is that the entire cast has received raises. It’s a good thing Ms. Leakes is a rich bitch, because it looks like she may not benefit from the alleged salary-hike. It looks like Season 12 of RHOA is filming without her!
The love affair between Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley continues. Or does it? These two kids need to get it together because it has become
tiresome confusing. Porsha and Dennis rolled into couplehood and became engaged in late 2018. After a whirlwind romance, Porsha announced her pregnancy and gave birth to daughter Pilar Jhena in March of this year.
Like any couple, Dennis and Porsha have shared peaks and valleys. Dennis has had some hair weave legal drama with an ex-girlfriend. Porsha endured multiple histrionics, courtesy of her co-stars, during much of her pregnancy. Porsha also faced some financial issues, because you have to pay your taxes… Then came the cheating rumors. Dennis had previously confessed to keeping in touch with former flames, to the chagrin of his beloved. Last month, the streets started screaming about Dennis ALLEGEDLY being unfaithful. Porsha unfollowed him on social media and her fans wondered if the dream was over. Dennis denied any infidelity and she re-followed him again hours later. A few weeks after that episode, Porsha has unfollowed Dennis a second time, again causing fans to question the status of their relationship.
Well isn’t this interesting. Season 12 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has gone into production. Minus one
giant inflated ego NeNe Leakes. How could that be, you might ask! Why NeNe was essential last year when the world literally revolved around her life! And her closet… Last season, we watched the cast console NeNe over her various troubles. NeNe has openly blasted her former best friend and husband. In a particularly low-class moment, she fat-shamed Porsha Williams, two seconds after she gave birth. Those who might have felt sympathy for her, saw it fade away.
As she sat on the reunion stage, defending her coarse attitude throughout filming, she offered no apologies or feelings of remorse. NeNe also saw friendships go down the drain. Then news broke of an alleged salary increase for NeNe’s presence on the show, despite her unpleasant behavior. Now cameras are rolling for the next journey in Atlanta, but
the rich bitch NeNe is nowhere to be found.
