Don’t get me wrong, it was a very dark era on Real Housewives of New Jersey when Melissa Gorga joined the show. She and Joe Gorga feuded with Teresa Giudice for years and they all went low with their antics. But, at least that was genuine. What do we have now in comparison?
A whole lot of fakery.
Last season, Melissa’s whole storyline was about a psychic, that we never saw on camera, who
supposedly said that she might have another sister. This sister never materialized and the whole story was a major stretch, yet she’s a full-time cast member on this show. This season, Melissa is pretending she wants to have another baby is pondering having another baby. It just feels so forced, even more so than the Envy apparel that she makes sure to wear in every single scene and Instagram post.
We all saw those photos of Teresa Giudice walking with Tony Delorenzo aka the Pool Boy. He had his arm wrapped around her and they looked like a happy couple. Tony even celebrated Christmas Eve with Teresa at Joe and Melissa Gorga’s house.
Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa has said that Teresa and Tony are “just friends” and that Teresa wants to date a “nice Jewish boy” next. Is Melissa just playing it cool? Or are Teresa and Tony really “just friends”?
It is nerve-wracking to be an “OG” Housewife right now. Before, that was the plum position to have. Now it makes you a target for a demotion, or being fired. Kandi Burruss, who joined Real Housewives of Atlanta in Season 2, is concerned about losing her full-time gig.
Lisa Vanderpump decided to quit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Real Housewives of Orange County “OG”’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge decided to leave the show after being offered positions as “Friends of the Housewives” for next season.
It looks like Kenya Moore is shooting down any hope that she and Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star NeNe Leakes will ever be friends again. NeNe did take a step forward in making things right with Cynthia Bailey. NeNe sent her former bestie some cheese and cracker trays, along with a really heartfelt card, when Cynthia opened her wine cellar. But later, the exact words from the card appeared on Love B. Scott’s blog, and NeNe blamed Kenya for the leak. Kenya pointed her finger (guess which one) right back at NeNe.
During the RHOA trip to Toronto for Carnival, Kenya and NeNe had an argument over who should mind their own business, and production had to help restrain NeNe. It’s no secret that NeNe was furious when Kenya returned with a peach this season. Last season. NeNe referred to a pregnant Kenya as a “monster” at Cynthia’s bellini launch event.
It’s not hard to notice that NeNe Leakes hasn’t exactly been a feature on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, even though she’s billed as a full-time cast member. Despite her lack of presence, she knows how to keep her relationship with her fellow Housewives full of drama, which makes one wonder just how much screen time the ATL OG needs anyway.
It’s recently been released that NeNe has hired a high powered attorney to help her with….well, we don’t know exactly. NeNe announced on Instagram that she is working with the famed Lisa Bloom so she can “make some noise”. Whatever that means. She’s also been spilling the
supposed tea to “friend” Wendy Williams, who took to the airwaves saying that NeNe text her that she quit. Wendy went on to tell her viewers, “I know something about NeNe that you all will cry, be sad, feel bad for her. She’s carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders.”
Even though Wendy Williams is not a Real Housewife, her name has been mentioned a lot when it comes to Real Housewives news. A few months ago, there were rumors (and hope) that Wendy would become a New York Housewife. Last Friday, Erika Jayne spilled some tea on Wendy’s show. And, of course, there’s the NeNe Leakes of it all. Wendy and NeNe have been very close for the past few months. After many years of feuding, they made up at a strip club.
As a result, Wendy has shared a lot of her personal insights when she dishes on Real Housewives of Atlanta-related hot topics; i.e. she reads texts NeNe sends her and sides with NeNe on everything. However, Wendy was in some hot water recently after she claimed that NeNe is carrying around a major secret that will “melt hearts.” She also said that NeNe texted her saying she wanted to quit RHOA. Afterward, NeNe claimed she was upset that Wendy shared a private conversation publicly. However, Kenya Moore thinks that the whole thing was orchestrated to make NeNe look better. I mean, let’s be honest: NeNe could use some good press. The past few seasons of RHOA did not do the woman any favors. At all.
Something is brewing with Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. But exactly what is going on remains a mystery.
RHOA viewers know that NeNe was not happy about Kenya Moore twirling back to the franchise. Then NeNe’s friend, talk-show host Wendy Williams, got involved and spilled some tea of her own, and it was shocking. Wendy announced on her talk show in January that not only did NeNe want to quit RHOA, but that she is also dealing with a huge secret. According to Page Six, Wendy said on her show, “Forget arguing with them broads– you’ve got that secret, and that secret is going to melt their hearts. Because when she shared it with me, I cried with her.”
In the middle of Season 9, fans got a preview of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without Lisa Vanderpump. She stopped filming and skipped the reunion before she quit the show. Season 10 will be the first RHOBH season without the OG cast member.
Of course, pretty much every current cast member gets asked about LVP’s absence in every interview. And Wendy Williams just couldn’t resist asking Erika Jayne about Lisa during their interview this morning.
