Articles for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5

Pop the bubbly and pass me a slice of pie -- the Atlanta peaches are back, and in season 5, two new debutantes have joined the cast. In tonight‘s premiere, "moving" appears to be the theme as Kandi moves into a new home, Kim finds out she has to move out of hers and NeNe contemplates a big move to L.A.

It‘s time for our favorite wig-hoarding, f-bomb dropping, eternally pregnant housewife to move out of her dream home and back to the town home. In this episode, Kim and Sweetie manage the movers, while Kroy manages to eat pizza from a box and then disappears to go play ... football ... ‘cause that‘s his job. After shuffling around the mansion in her Ugg-style slippers and belittling the employees of the moving company, Kim, Sweetie and the girls finally make it to the new-old home where they are promptly greeted by a creepy wall of mannequin heads holding all of Kim‘s wigs and a moving truck full of $40,000 in landscaping that Kim insisted be ripped from the grounds of the old-new home. Also in this episode, "Butt-Dial-Gate 2012." Join me for the recap, won‘t you? Read more »
At the beginning of season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, veteran star Kim Zolciak‘s role seemed to be unclear, with rumors of her filming less and less with the rest of the women. Now Kim is opening up about why she chose to quit and even hinting about a possible spin-off in the future.  Read more »
When it comes to Miss Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we‘ve come to expect nothing less than the prim and proper Southern Belle, albeit with a sometimes dirty mind and an innuendo-ridden sense of humor. So when she was caught on a "butt dial" voice message saying she didn‘t "give a f***" about whether co-star Cynthia Bailey came to her son‘s birthday or not, it seemed a little out of character.  Read more »
So many housewives and so little time! Here‘s what the ladies of The Real Housewives franchise have been getting into lately:  Read more »
Kenya Moore may have gotten off to a bumpy start on The Real Housewives of Atlanta by being a harsh judge at a Cynthia Bailey‘s model casting call, but she insists that she‘s not a "mean girl." No matter how many times she uses the word "coochie crack" in civil conversation. Read more »
In this week‘s episode, Kenya flirts with danger, Porsha uses root vegetables to plan her future, Kandi shows Phaedra how to keep more than her booty "right and tight" and Kim storms out of a luncheon before the first crab cake is served.What are the ladies up to this week? Let me recap it for you. Read more »
No matter what, the world of the Real Housewives keeps on spinning as veteran castmates take their leave, and new wives are ready for their curtain call. Here‘s what some of the cast members (and potentially new stars) have been up to lately:  Read more »
It should come as no surprise that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes isn‘t letting her arch nemesis Kim Zolciak exit the show without throwing some shade. First, she took aim at co-star Kandi Burruss for saying that NeNe has "questionable motives" when she‘s trying to make friends. Read more »
Remember when Kenya Moore from The Real Housewives of Atlanta claimed that she didn‘t "play for the cameras?" Well it looks like that might have been a bit of a fib. The man who appeared on the show as her boyfriend, Walter Jackson, claims that their relationship was simply fabricated for TV.  Read more »
‘Tis the season for cattiness and drama! Here‘s what some of the ladies of The Real Housewives have been up to lately.  Read more »
We begin tonight‘s episode with "the inappropriate question heard ‘round the world" from Kenya to Phaedra regarding a hypothetical birthday gift that she hopes to give to Apollo involving what we can only assume is sexual relations. As Phaedra so bluntly puts it, "These are fighting words in my neighborhood." Phaedra makes it clear that she‘s pissed off and Kenya insists that it‘s all just for fun.Roundup: Camille Waits for a Divorce, Larsa Gets a Show and Brandi Loses a Tumor >>>Flirty FoolReally Kenya?! I don‘t understand how she can expect/demand a proposal when she spends the entire trip flirting with everyone other than Walter. NeNe can tell something is up between them, too. And being NeNe, she calls it out right then and there. She asks Kenya if her relationship is real. Kenya says it is. But NeNe can see that they haven‘t really been connecting. Kenya steps up and apologizes to Phaedra, while letting her know that she does respect her and Apollo‘s marriage. Phaedra accepts her apology, but not without a bit of an icy tone that lets Kenya know, no more. Read more »
It only took minutes for Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart, the two newest cast members of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, to realize they didn‘t like each other. And all of their discord came to a head in the form of a near-violent altercation between the two on last night‘s episode.  Read more »
The ladies are back from paradise and have returned to reality. And nobody needs a taste of reality more than Kenya right now. Kenya and NeNe sit down for lunch to rehash the trip. NeNe gets real and I just love her to pieces for it. She tries to get Kenya to see how her expectations of Walter while on the trip were pushed to an unfair and unrealistic level. Even though from what I‘ve seen, the man is misleading, especially since he knows he‘s dealing with a woman that wants to get married and have one million babies, like, yesterday. Yams and BabiesOver to Porsha‘s where Cynthia and Kandi are over for some pie and champagne. Porsha talks about her baby-making goals and her hope for twins. Here‘s where it gets awesome. Porsha apparently googled ‘twins‘ or ‘how to make twins‘ or maybe something more hilarious, and she stumbled upon an article about a village in Africa where 80% of the women gave birth to twins after sticking to a diet that consisted mostly of yams. Somebody over at Google deserves a high-five for that one. Kandi immediately points out that since it was just a small village, wouldn‘t that mean that the twins would come from genetics? Not yams? Porsha seems confused. Let‘s move on... Read more »
Getting back to the swing of things after the holiday break? Well, those housewives never take a break from being dramatic! Here‘s what the Real Housewives of Atlanta have been up to lately.  Read more »
We begin tonight‘s episode at NeNe‘s for some role play in the kitchen between her and Gregg. Well, not really. They play a little bit and then her son, Bryson, walks in with his new baby, Bri‘Asia. We then learn that NeNe found out she was going to be a grandmother by running into the baby mama while she was out and about in town. The baby mama was six months preggers at the time. If you would‘ve fainted in public after receiving this news, raise your hand. Good, we‘re in this together. I mean, seriously, Bryson?!Roundup: A Pregnancy, a Slim-Down and a Possible Engagement >>>Make Way for the GlammotherBut NeNe is NeNe. She‘s glass half-full and hopes that having Bri will settle Bryson, just as having Bryson settled her. She‘s also excited to spoil a little girl.

Tonight, we begin at NeNe‘s Los Angeles pad. She‘s got terrible cell phone service and can‘t get the ATL dish from Cynthia. Kenya sends over the contents of her LA storage unit to fill NeNe‘s house. Some of the items are ehhh. NeNe is stressed about decorating the house and really settling in. She‘s not sure how long The New Normal will run and she refuses to give up her house in Atlanta.NeNe Leakes Confirms Engagement >>>Cake by KandiKandi and Riley are baking a cake for Todd‘s birthday. Kandi is happy that the two of them have bonded and are in a good place. The mother/daughter banter is adorable. Riley asks if she can move into the giant guest house so she can have a bigger room and more freedom. Kandi shuts her down. Read more »

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss may not have been pressuring her boyfriend Todd Tucker to pop the question (unlike her co-star Kenya Moore), but she must have done something right. The two confirmed to People yesterday that they are engaged. Read more »
Cynthia is judging a beauty event that she refers to as "New York Fashion Week for hair." Kenya shows up for support. Cynthia and Kenya have gotten closer and Cynthia fully supports Kenya‘s "Stallion Booty" workout video. It‘s pretty brilliant. Would you choose a donkey booty or a stallion booty? Exactly.RHOA Star Kandi Burruss Gets Engaged >>>Glam-Mother Gets HandyNeNe and Gregg try to put together Bri‘s crib. It always seems like it‘ll be easy until the box gets opened and each instruction step has nonsensical numbers and letters. They decide to just take a break from the stressful assembling so that NeNe can coo all over her little glam-baby. Read more »
Whether they‘re falling in (or out) of love or collecting more lawsuits than the average person has seen in their lifetime, the Real Housewives are always keeping things interesting on and off the small screen. Here‘s what some of the ladies have been up to lately:RHOBH Recap: More Brandi, More Problems >>> Read more »
Kenya gets a workout in to prepare for her "Stallion Workout" video. Meanwhile, Phaedra hops into a leotard and begins shooting for the "Donkey Booty" cover. Both of these women are absolutely gorgeous, just in very different ways. It‘s hard not to stare at Kenya‘s figure. Is her ass real? Are her boobs real? If so, I‘m siding with the stallion. Phaedra is voluptuous and soft. Kenya is cut, tight and perky. Which would you choose? Donkey or Stallion?Real Housewives Roundup: Adrienne‘s Boyfriend, Sheree‘s Bills and Alexia‘s Lawsuit >>>Pageant QueenCynthia is looking to get into pageants and meets with a pageant expert to get into the specifics. Cynthia was discovered at a pageant in her tween years, and even though she didn‘t place (those fools!), one of the judges was a model scout and snatched her up. They start going through the fees and all of the ways to make money from a pageant. Aside from thinking that pageants seem ridiculous and terrible for young girls, I‘m surprised to learn how expensive they are! There are fees for everything. Entry fees, photo fees, hair and makeup fees -- what?! Read more »
The drama never turns off with the cast members of The Real Housewives. Here‘s what some of them have been up to lately:  Read more »
Porsha tries on different gowns for Cordell‘s 40th birthday. Since she doesn‘t have a mind of her own, she selects dresses that Cordell would want to see her in, as opposed to what she likes. She even refers to herself as Cordell‘s "doll." So, that happened.Real Housewives Roundup: Divorce, Sobriety, Lawsuits and Beyonce >>>Donkey-liciousPhaedra hangs out at Kandi‘s place for some sweet tea (hello, Lipton ad) and some Kenya gossip. Phaedra is flattered that Kenya tried to dress like her at NeNe‘s Shoedazzle event in her barely there mesh dress. Insert multiple donkey references here, and Phaedra‘s self-involved delusions come full circle. Read more »
On last week‘s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers followed Kenya Moore through a series of medical tests she underwent to find out if the lump in her breast was cancerous. Fortunately, the biopsied tumors in her breasts were benign. Now she is opening up about her cancer scare. Read more »
Cynthia is busy getting everything ready for the Miss Renaissance pageant. She‘s a little stressed with having to run everything herself after giving Porsha the (well-deserved) boot. Kenya stops in with a cute little lady who would like to apply for the pageant. Kenya also offers her services as a judge, and despite her immediate resistance to the idea, she‘s happy to take Kenya up on her offer. Judge Kenya 2.0, y‘all.RHOA Star Kenya Moore Talks Cancer Scare >>>Hushed WifeyKordell and Porsha sit down for dinner at a local restaurant. The server takes their drink order and Porsha requests a Sprite. Kordell orders her a wine instead. Poor girl can‘t even make her own beverage decisions. They begin discussing the fact that Porsha isn‘t home as much lately because she is working more with the charity. Kordell isn‘t pleased. He expects his servant wife to be home earlier because he is a monster "traditional" husband. Then they start talking about having kids, and whether or not Porsha is ready to take on that responsibility. There‘s really no "we" in this discussion, because Kordell expects her to do all of the parenting, I guess. Now all of a sudden, Porsha wants a "career" and a nanny instead. Kordell is not okay with that. No nannies, no help. The solution? They‘ll borrow her brother‘s baby for a week for a test drive. Read more »

NeNe is getting ready for the girls to arrive for an LA visit. She doesn‘t want any drama with the girls while they‘re in town -- famous last words. They have plans for a dinner party the first night, a day out on the town and then they‘re all heading to Vegas.Real Housewives Roundup: Court Dates, Sobriety and Beauty Queens >>>Hollywood HoldupThe ladies land in LA and are almost to NeNe‘s house when the hummer-sine gets stuck on the steep and winding roads of the Hollywood Hills. NeNe drives down to meet them and brings everyone up. Everyone is exhausted from traveling, but will suck it up to meet NeNe for dinner. Dinner is at 9pm, but they don‘t get on the road from their hotel until 11pm and don‘t arrive until close to midnight. Cynthia calls NeNe to let her know that they‘ll be arriving soon, and NeNe tells them to just turn around and head back to the hotel. She‘s pissed. I mean, I get that they‘re tired and had a long day of travel, but why even bother getting in the car if you‘re two hours late? Read more »

Kenya is still fuming over the dinner drama. She can‘t stand Phaedra, can‘t stand Porsha, and she‘s nervous about spending more time with them in Vegas. Everyone but NeNe will be heading to Vegas in a party bus. Driving from LA to Vegas takes roughly four hours. Four hours on the road with these girls? Yikes.Real Housewives Roundup: More Spin-Offs, A Returning Wife and Unpaid Taxes >>>Road to VegasThe bus ride gets silly when Kenya tries to get everyone to participate in some improv exercises. She‘s clearly doing her best to keep the mood a positive one. They joke around, they laugh, and eight hours later, they finally arrive in Vegas. Read more »

Porsha unpacks from the girls trip and -- uh, oh -- Kordell discovers the pregnancy test that the girls gave her as a joke. So he plays the clueless male for a second and then gets her to take the test. She can‘t figure out how to do it."Do I pee for a full two minutes? I can‘t pee that long!"RHOA: Kandi Burruss Sues Kim Zolciak for Copyright Infringement >>>Honey, how do you even survive out there in the real world? Oh, that‘s right. Your master husband barely "lets you" out of the house. The test reads, "Not pregnant." She‘s a little bummed and gets even more upset when Kordell clearly doesn‘t care either way. Read more »

As this week‘s RHOA starts, we‘re right in the middle of a Kenya flip-out as she desperately tries to exit Kandi‘s party. She‘s yelling at Kandi‘s manager to get the other cars out of her way or she will "run them over." Yikes. Chill out, girl. He‘s not chasing after you. You want to remove yourself from the situation. We get it.Roundup: Reunion Spoilers, Yet Another Lawsuit and a Possible Engagement >>>Walter-ObsessedCynthia is sick of it as well, so she decides to sit down with Kenya and be honest about her recent behavior with the whole Walter situation. Kenya is so fixated on Walter being obsessed with her that it‘s making her look insane. This is not exactly what Cynthia tells her, but she gets her point across without Kenya getting overly defensive. Which is really kind of amazing. Cynthia is right. Who cares who Walter is dating? Who cares if he keeps showing up? If you lost interest in him, Kenya, he shouldn‘t be on your radar. Read more »

The season has come to an end in a very fitting fashion. It‘s all about Kenya. She‘s either been twirling in the spotlight or she‘s wildly unhappy. Her Hollywood Icons gala is coming together and it‘s going to be huge. Not just in the guest list, but also in the production value. Are you ready for some dramatic RHOA fun?Real Housewives Roundup: Break-Ups and Make-Ups >>>SparksssPhaedra and Kandi head to a fitness studio to have a little fun with a few stun guns that Phaedra has designed. Huh? The instructors that they meet with specialize in self-defense, which I guess makes sense for stun gun practice, but they don‘t actually incorporate any self-defense moves. Really, they just play around, drop three consecutive sexual innuendos and then Kandi accidentally zaps one of the instructors. Read more »

Here at BuddyTV we love The Real Housewives franchise, but at times it can be difficult to keep up with the latest news from all the different spinoffs,  especially when there are six Real Housewife installments-- each one running at different times.You‘re probably wondering where to find updates about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now that the focus is shifting to the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Well, wonder no more.  Read more »
You guys ready for some twirls? I love Real Housewives reunions. The women of each city have to gather in the same room and face not only their behavior, but their off-camera behavior as well. Their blogs, their tweets, it‘s all laid out there and it‘s awesome! Also, who doesn‘t love Andy, am I right? He asks tough questions that clearly make the ladies uncomfortable. He makes them look foolish when they get out of line and he tries (but often fails) to make sense of beef between the ladies. Read more »
Twirl on, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans! RadarOnline has just announced that all six ladies have signed on for next season, NeNe included. We‘re only through part one of the three-part reunion special and it‘s clear that the longstanding beef between some of these ladies is not going anywhere. In fact, with the big life changes that all of them have faced this year, the beef has probably only just begun.  Read more »
Part two of this three-part reunion looks to bring out NeNe‘s defensive side. Part three will be the best part, with the drama and tension at its highest, but still offering a conclusion that should leave you comfortable with the end of the season. Part two, though, just leaves you hanging in the shade-throwing balance. NeNe has spent the entire season keeping the peace and playing it cool. But now we get to see the claws come out. It begins with discussing the evolution of her relationship with Gregg. Last season, they went through a divorce and this season they fell back in love. She talked about the trouble they had in previous years stemming from some things that the ladies had said about her. The confrontations don‘t stop there. Here are the top five NeNe moments from part two of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Read more »

What will Porsha share about her current situation with Kordell? Will we find out that Walter is gay? Was their relationship fake? What will we learn about the secret texting between Kenya and Apollo? Will Kenya twirl again?I couldn‘t care less about the twirling. I‘m just excited to see the boys again. They spent a lot of time on screen this season. They huddled together at parties and took shots, they defended their ladies when needed, and for the most part, treated them like queens. Here are the best man-moments from part three of the RHOA reunion. Read more »
Porsha Stewart of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has already stated that her husband and former NFL star Kordell Stewart filing for a divorce came as a shock (something that is very apparent from her discussion about her marriage on the reunion that aired this week).
