This got super heated during the third and final part of the ‘RHOA’ reunion special on May 9.

Jaws hit the floor during the May 9 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, when Marlo Hampton claimed Kandi Burruss was the one who told her what happened with Bolo the stripper at Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party.

After reunion host Andy Cohen read a fan question that hinted at Kenya Moore and Marlo believing Kandi knows more than she’s let on about what went down with Bolo, he asked, “Why do they think that?” While Kandi appeared surprised by such a thought, Kenya said that she was the first to stir the pot.

“Because I was in the room next door to them so I automatically get dragged into the situation?” Kandi asked before Marlo said Kandi told her who allegedly had sex with the stripper. “Everybody knows Kandi knows. You know Kandi, I love you to death…but right now, I don’t care now. At the end of the day, keep it to you 100,” Marlo said.

Marlo then went on to say that Kandi told her the following morning “what she heard and what happened” from being next door to the scene of the alleged crime that night. But unfortunately for viewers, nothing more was revealed than what we have already been told (Kenya and Marlo still think Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam slept with the stripper, but no confirmation was ever given).

Even when Andy asked if anyone had heard from Tanya, almost everyone refused to talk about her because she wasn’t there to defend herself (she quit the show soon after Cynthia’s bachelorette party).

Drew Sidora & LaToya Ali Fight Over Her Alleged Romance With The Prophet

Later, Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali got into another fight over her alleged romance with the prophet, but no one could understand why Drew truly cared whether or not such a relationship ever happened. She claimed that other prophets pulled out from blessing her son because of LaToya’s alleged romance with the prophet, but everyone thought that sounded silly.

Drew also apologized for bringing a gag gift to the Christmas party before Andy basically shaded her for bringing the recording of the prophet, too. She claimed she couldn’t play all of it for legal reasons, and he said if she’s going to bring receipts in the future, she needs to bring better ones.

Kenya Moore & Porsha Williams’ Relationship: What Went Wrong

Finally, Andy tried to figure out why Kenya and Porsha just can’t seem to make their friendship work. Obviously, they each started the show hating each other — flashbacks during the reunion proved that — but when they found common ground after the births of their daughters, it almost appeared as though they had put the past behind them and decided to move forward as friends. Or at least friendly acquaintances. So Andy asked what happened. And that’s when Kenya said she couldn’t get past watching Porsha poke fun at her marriage in private confessionals and with other cast members on the show. So for now, they just can’t be friends with each other.

And thus, not a ton of resolutions were made. But Andy did give the ladies the crab cakes Kenya had deprived them of in South Carolina when he wrapped up the show. So we suppose that’s a positive, right?

Cynthia Bailey will be celebrating this Mother’s Day holiday with a fun new cocktail. Plus, she’s spilling tea on ‘RHOA’!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey started working with Seagram’s Escapes in 2018 and launched her own signature flavor in 2019 – Peach Bellini – which has become a top favorite with Seagram’s Escapes Drinkers. And now, Cynthia is expanding her partnership with Seagram’s by introducing a fun new cocktail for this Mother’s Day holiday — The Momosa.

The recipe is rather simple too — just combine 2/3 of your favorite Seagram’s Escapes flavor plus 1/3 sparkling wine or champagne. Then, garnish it with berries or the fruit of your choice! It’s really that simple.

“Being a mother is my number one job. That is my number one priority and, and I respect the things that moms go through, and I feel like we always kind of put ourselves last. So, Mother’s Day is a really important day for us to do something for us. So with that said, we came up with the ‘Momosa’,” Cynthia told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY while promoting her new cocktail with Seagram’s.

Cynthia told us that she’s super excited for Mother’s Day, and she plans on enjoying quite a few Momosas. She also said, “I plan on being with my husband at Lake Bailey. I’m the kind of mom, I just like to be treated well on Mother’s Day. I’m not really big on flowers and stuff like that. It’s nice, but I want a deep tissue massage. And not the one hour kind — mama needs a long massage, okay? Throw in a facial and some dinner, and a nice glass of champagne and I’m good to go.” Sounds pretty ideal — and well deserves. Especially because Cynthia recently wrapped production on a pretty dramatic season of RHOA.

While much has already been revealed during the show’s reunion special, including a secret hookup between Porsha Williams and LaToya Ali, Cynthia said fans may not get all the answers they’ve been looking for. “I don’t know if you guys are going to get all the answers that you need or you expect,” she revealed, while also sharing her hopes for Season 14.

When asked who she’d like to see return to the show, she joked, “Well, first of all, since you know, there’s never a guarantee that any of us are coming back [for another season] — I would like for myself to have the option [to come back] before I try to give other people a job.” Then — after we chuckled over her answer — she added, “But going forward from that, I would say I do love the cast that we had this season. But from what I hear from the fans, a lot of people definitely miss Nene [Leakes], Phaedra [Parks], and Kim Zolciak.” We have no idea what the future of RHOA holds, but we certainly hope it includes Cynthia Bailey.

Want more from Cynthia? The third and final part of the RHOA reunion airs Sunday, May 9, at 8pm on Bravo. And yes, that also happens to be Mother’s Day. So do yourself a favor and enjoy this new cocktail while you’re watching the ladies hash things out on TV.

Porsha revealed new details about Cynthia’s bachelorette party during the May 2 episode of ‘RHOA’.

The events of Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party were — and still are — a little hazy, but LaToya Ali and Porsha Williams revealed they may have gotten very close on the coffee table during the second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion on May 2.

It was mentioned after Andy Cohen brought up the party and said, “There was a lot of talk about the coffee table action.” After everyone started giggling, he asked, “Does anyone care to share what happened on the coffee table?”

“That’s one of the things that were blurry,” Porsha started explaining. She then revealed, “It came back to me that Toya was doing a thing on me, you know, or whatever…”

“Or whatever?” Andy asked, before LaToya jumped in and further asked, “What’s ‘a thing on me’?”

“Your face was here,” Porsha said as she pointed to her crotch.

“My face was there?” LaToya asked, to which Porsha said, “Yes.” LaToya then asked, “Did you like it?” and Porsha again said, “Yeah!”

“But I didn’t really remember that,” Porsha explained to Andy. She claims she was told by someone that that’s what happened. She also said, “I still had on my costume, so it’s not like she was [doing anything].” And by that she meant oral sex.

But Andy reminded Porsha that her costume was basically “a piece of dental floss,” so either way, if what they’re saying is true, then LaToya’s face was definitely close to Porsha’s nearly naked crotch area. LaToya agreed, saying, “I could have pulled them panties to the side.”  Porsha got excited by the thought of that, but it seemed evident that no one truly remembered all the details of what went down on the coffee table.

In other reunion news — Kandi Burruss and Porsha opened up about where their friendship stands today. After four years of ups and downs, they revealed that they’re following each other on social media. And when Andy asked Kandi what finally allowed her to “bury the hatchet with Porsha,” she said, “I guess like, this year, it just seemed like, you know, it was headed in a much better direction. We were having a lot more fun together, around each other. And then when we were at Cynthia’s event and she was showing support to DonJuan as well, I was like, ‘Okay, now this is really a different situation.’”

Porsha added, “Even when Kandi and I have issues outside of the group, we’ll talk about it over text and deal with it. And we deal with it and we leave it there.”

Cynthia Bailey’s Christmas party ended in a disaster during the April 16 episode of ‘RHOA’.

LaToya Ali, 34, made a late entrance at Cynthia Bailey‘s cast holiday party, and she brought major drama with her. “Oh, perfect timing!” Drew Sidora, 35, said during the April 16 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, as LaToya walked in the door. “She came to get her gift.”

Cynthia had arranged for everyone to participate in a White Elephant gift exchange, and she asked that each person spend $1,000 on their gifts. Even though not everyone enjoyed what the got — for some reason, Porsha Williams didn’t love the Tiffany & Co. jewelry she received from Cynthia — everyone spent the full amount. Well, everyone except for Drew. Drew basically brought a gag gift and then donated money to charity.

When it was Kenya Moore‘s turn, she picked the gift that Drew brought. And upon opening it, Kenya discovered a furry cat carrier with a wig inside — the same one that Kenya and LaToya poked fun at when Drew wore it at the beginning of the season. The gift also consisted of a boombox with a cassette tape. Kenya didn’t care enough to play it, as she was already pissed over the other half of the gift, but Porsha really wanted to hear it.

However, when the ladies discovered that it was just a taped phone call between Drew’s assistant and Prophet Anthony Lott, who Drew has accused LaToya of being in a romantic relationship with despite the fact that she’s married, they all tuned out. No one cares whether or not LaToya, who is actually divorcing her husband, and the prophet are dating, even though Drew’s been bringing it up every chance she gets.

Anyway, just as the tape stopped playing, LaToya arrived at the party and Drew said it was “perfect timing”. But when LaToya found out what had transpired before she got there, she made it known that she didn’t agree. “Drew, shut up,” LaToya snapped at Drew, who responded by calling her “disrespectful,” adding, “Something is wrong with you.”

“You weren’t looking for God!” Drew yelled back. “You were looking for some d***. You was looking for prophet d***.”

Then, LaToya fired back, “And your man looking for some new p****, ’cause yours is dried up”, before taking the wig and throwing it at Drew. Drew then stood up and jumped across Cynthia’s coffee table while taking swings at LaToya. Fortunately, security guards stepped in and broke up the fight, but things quickly turned ugly, so Cynthia ended her party early.

And just as Kenya was dragging LaToya out to her car, carolers arrived. But despite the drama, they just kept singing their sweet Christmas songs. It was rather hilarious if you ask us.

Kandi Burruss finally broke her silence on who allegedly had sex with Bolo the stripper, during the April 10 episode of ‘RHOA’.

The April 11 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta picked up where last’s weeks left off — at Kandi Burruss‘ new restaurant tasting event. Marlo Hampton had also just arrived, so things got pretty dramatic very quickly.

It all started when Marlo tried to apologize for going off on Porsha Williams at the event with Big Freedia, but Porsha wasn’t interested in forgiving her on-again/off-again friend. Instead, she and BFF Shamea Morton accused Marlo of lying about getting liposuction. They claimed she secretly had the procedure just before the most recent cast trip to New Orleans, but she said otherwise.

A post shared by KANDI BURRUSS FANPAGE (@kandiburrussfanpage)

It was actually a silly argument and one that only started because Porsha and Shamea were tired of Marlo acting messy, but Marlo told Kandi that Porsha needs to be more careful because if she keeps coming for her, she’s going to spill some major tea.

“You know how right now I could go below the belt and tell her don’t play it off. I know [you] heard [her having sex],” Marlo told Kandi, referring to the fact that Porsha keeps denying she had sex with Bolo the stripper at Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party. Then, a bit of unaired footage showed Marlo talking to Kandi in South Carolina, six weeks prior, and asking her who she thought had sex with the stripper. Kandi could then be heard saying, “Oh, I know who it was.”

Kandi didn’t name anyone on camera or on her microphone, but the way Marlo was speaking this way made it seem as though Kandi named Porsha. Kandi asked Marlo not to put her “in the middle” of their drama, but Marlo said, “I will [if I have to], so she better stop.”

Then, in a private confessional, Marlo admitted, “Kandi told me about the bitch over there f***ing Bolo all night, but I’m going to keep it sealed.”

As many fans know, Kenya Moore has been on a season-long crusade to prove that Porsha had sex with the stripper — something she claims to have heard with her own ears. But Porsha has denied, over and over again, that she sex with anyone that night… despite what anyone may have heard.

Meanwhile, Drew Sidora confronted LaToya Ali after their personal lives collided. Drew heard that LaToya was hooking up with her prophet — the same man who was supposed to bless her daughter at the kids’ forthcoming christening. However, once Drew heard that LaToya was having relations with the prophet, and the prophet allegedly cheated on his fiancee, she refused to let him baptize her daughter. Apparently, she felt like it would have been bad juju.

Drew eventually confronted LaToya, but everyone thought it was an odd things to fight about — especially since the prophet’s personal life had nothing to do with whether or not it’d be kosher for him to baptize a child. Anyway, later, when LaToya was alone with the ladies (sans Drew), she called the prophet and the prophet told everyone that he did not have any sort of relationship with LaToya, nor was he engaged to anyone in the last couple of years. He basically called Drew a liar.

Finally, Kenya shared new hope for her marriage with Marc Daly, after she revealed that Marc had decided to spend more time in Atlanta and go to couples’ therapy with her. Will it last? Only time will tell.

‘RHOA’s Kandi Burruss Reveals How She Dropped 20 lbs. Since November After Gaining Weight During COVID

‘RHOA’s Kandi Burruss looks amazing after she revealed EXCLUSIVELY how she’s shed her COVID weight gain and why she’s not done yet!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss, 44, admitted to gaining 20 Lbs. quarantine last year — but is revealing how she lost it all a short amount of time. “I’ve lost 20 pounds since November,” the actress and entrepreneur told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on March 28. “I want to lose 10 more pounds,” she adds — confessing her secret came down to diet: no sugar and no bread, in particular.

While she admitted she usually kick starts her healthy eating habits at the top of the year, she started a bit earlier than usual. “I always do this prayer fast during the first month of the year,” Kandi revealed. “But I actually did it for 2 months. December, January.” This season we’ll see Kandi working out with her trainer and cousin, Patrick, after admitting on her social media page that she knew she packed on too many pounds during lockdown.

Her diet became a priority since she’s been so busy working. “I took out all sweets,” Kandi added. “I stopped eating all sweets, bread. I only drank water, no juices, anything, and then I took some appetite suppressants so I didn’t feel hungry all of the time. I’m not even going to lie to you, I needed a little help, so it just helped me stay on course. That basically was it and over the 2-and-a-half months I lost 20 pounds and I’d like to lose 10 more although I have started back eating sweets here and there but I’ve got to catch myself before I get out of whack. But yeah, I want to lose 10 more pounds.”

A post shared by Kenya Moore (@thekenyamoore)

“This is my first day back to working out,” Kandi posted on her Instagram stories back in Sept. 2020. “I’ve gained 20 pounds since May. At the beginning of COVID I was working out and I was in shape, and even then I wanted to lose 10 pounds. But I ended up getting lax and comfortable, and I ended up gaining 20. So that means I have 30 pounds of which I really would like to lose. And I just want to better myself overall. I just want to get used to making working out a part of my regular routine.”

Kandi isn’t the only housewife in her cast to get snatched after the pandemic, either! Co-stars Cynthia Bailey, 54, and Kenya Moore, 50, also have dropped a lot of weight once Atlanta started opening up and it helped motivate The Chi star as the ladies recently wrapped the dramatic twelfth season. “Kenya lost — She’s skinny now!” Kandi said. “Yeah, she’s super skinny. I think everybody’s just trying to tighten up.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo at 8pm.

The ladies participated in a dungeon-themed surprise bachelorette party for Cynthia during the Feb. 21 episode of ‘RHOA’, and the fun kept going after the cameras went down.

What happened in “the dungeon”? When the cameras went down for the night — during the Feb. 21 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta — the ladies continued with a crazy after-party that lead to accusations, denials, and the breaking of girl code. To say Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party was a wild one would be an understatement.

As B.O.L.O was showing off some raunchy dance moves, Porsha Williams took a liking to him, and she made it pretty obvious. After throwing some dollar bills his way, she rubbed her backside up against his erect penis — yes, he was literally erect throughout the entirety of this week’s episode — and couldn’t believe how big he was. But Porsha wasn’t alone — every single lady became enamored by B.O.L.O. So much so, in fact, that they begged him to stay and party with them after the cameras went down.

But unfortunately for them, not every camera stopped recording. Even though Kandi Burruss and her co-stars covered a lot of the cameras set up throughout the house, one from the outside saw some of what happened inside. Not only was B.O.L.O seen doing some wild dancing on Drew Sidora, but Porsha was also seen making out with LaToya Ali.

The after-party went on all through the night, but Kenya Moore, Cynthia and a few others went to bed earlier than the others. And when Kenya woke up at like 6am and entered the kitchen, she said she heard sex noises coming from Porsha’s second bedroom. Then, B.O.L.O was seen leaving the house an hour later.

After everyone finally woke up, Kenya started questioning everyone and trying to figure out who she allegedly heard having sex with the stripper. And by her process of elimination (Basic Instinct style, as you can see above), she seemed to have concluded that it must have been Porsha and Tanya Sam having wild fun with the stripper. However, we must note that Kenya never named names. She made that very clear on Twitter, as the episode was airing. But when Shamea questioned Porsha and Tanya privately, alleging that Kenya named them specifically, they denied doing such a thing and Tanya said she was insulted. But before they could even confront Kenya about what they had heard, the episode ended.

So @shameamorton I never said anyone’s name #RHOA hmmmm #RHOA

The ladies of ‘RHOA’ were shocked when they learned Kenya Moore chartered a private jet for her and LaToya to fly to South Carolina, while they were left riding on a hot bus.

There may not be another housewife who causes more drama than Kenya Moore. She further proved that during the Jan. 24 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, when she rented a private jet for the ladies’ trip to South Carolina. Sounds nice, right? It would have been had Kenya actually let any of the other ladies fly on the PJ with her.

Even though Kenya initiated and is hosting this trip, which looks to be turning into Cynthia Bailey‘s infamous bachelorette party, she forced everyone except her buddy, Latoya Ali, to board a hot bus for the three hour trek across state lines. She claimed it would cost too much money to rent a bigger plane, so they were left with a much less desirable means of transportation.

A post shared by Joey (@omfgrealitytv)

And what made matters worse was the fact that Kenya brought her daughter, Brooklyn, along for the ride and didn’t offer anyone else the same courtesy. The ladies only found out because Kenya had posted a picture of a jet-setting Brooklyn on Instagram. And when Porsha Williams saw the photo she bugged out. Especially because she had just cried while leaving her own daughter, Pilar, for the girls’ trip earlier that morning.

Upon arriving to South Carolina early — thanks to her private jet — Kenya also assigned rooms to everyone and purposely gave Marlo Hampton the worst one available. So we can only imagine the drama’s just going to escalate after the ladies arrive in South Carolina next week.

Oh and did we mention how Porsha tried kissing Kandi Burruss? Before they boarded the bus, Porsha was in a really good mood, thanks to getting dropped off by her on-again/off-again lover, Dennis McKinley, and she was in such high spirits that she joked about wanting to kiss Kandi. However, given their history with kissing and possible sex dungeons, Kandi turned down the offer. And honestly, we don’t blame her. The last time they allegedly kissed, Kandi got accused of trying to drug Porsha — and we all know how that turned out. (Watch that scene below.)

Also — we must note that before the ladies’ trip, Drew Sidora hosted a Hollywood-themed dinner where Porsha brought up the fact that Latoya previously shaded her wig. So like we said, next week’s episode is probably going to be pretty wild.

Cynthia Bailey has still got it! The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star shared a new video of herself dancing in a gorgeous blue mini dress.

Cynthia Bailey has flaunted her figure in a new video, after revealing her 20 pound weight loss. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 53, took to Instagram on January 22 to share a clip of herself doing the Tik Tok “walk challenge”. In the video, she strutted her stuff in a blue mini dress and a pair of brown snow boots. She walked backwards, forwards and sideways while the song “Walk” by Saucy Santana played in the background. “Put a lil’ NY stank on it,” she captioned the post, in which she accessorized her outfit with a pair of oversized gold hoop earrings, and a sparkling makeup look.

It comes just a few months after the Bravo star opened up to HollywoodLife about her 20-pound weight fluctuation during quarantine. Cynthia revealed that when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which caused stay-at-home orders across the globe , her “happy place” became food. She spoke exclusively with HL about her health journey during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on September 7.

“When I returned back to Lake Bailey by myself, I was able to kind of manage my food a little bit better — because I didn’t have my family with me and honestly some days I didn’t even eat as much as before,” Cynthia said about returning to her home in Georgia, after quarantining in LA. “It just wasn’t an issue when I came home, because I was just eating for myself, so I was able to control what was in the refrigerator,” she said, adding, “I was able to control my snacking and all of that kind of stuff.”

When she returned home, Cynthia said she was able to work on her weight loss journey with intermittent fasting. “I started out just not eating anything until after 4 (p.m.), which was easy enough. I’m pretty busy during the pandemic now with work stuff, so that was pretty easy for me,” she explained. “Then, I would just eat maybe two healthy meals later that evening and that was it — and I just started slimming down. It was pretty awesome! I didn’t realize how good I actually looked until I put on a two-piece. I was like, ‘Wait a minute! I actually look OK!’”

At the end of the Jan. 17 episode of ‘RHOA’, fans got a glimpse of Cynthia Bailey’s wild bachelorette party months after it was reported that two cast members allegedly had sex with a stripper hired for the event.

What. Just. Happened? Following the Jan. 17 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers got their first glimpse at the events of Cynthia Baileys bachelorette party that led to “strippergate“. In a preview clip for the next few episodes of the Bravo series, Kandi Burruss narrates the “epic girls’ trip” that showed the cast dancing with each other while wearing bodysuits and fishnet stockings.

“You have entered the dungeon,” Kandi, 44, says after striking a whip, while Porsha Williams grinds of a very muscular male stripper. Kenya Moore asks, “Why are you rubbing all up on him?”, and to be honest, we’d love to know her answer.

(Bravo)

But what we do know is that during this trip, Porsha was a very single woman. Earlier this season, the 39-year-old revealed that she and the father of her daughter, Dennis McKinley, had split, so her sexy dance with the stripper shouldn’t be so controversial. But it is interesting to see because in Oct. 2020, Page Six reported that two cast members allegedly had sex with the stripper who was hired for the event that night, even though the stripper later denied the claim.

And in black and white footage from the clip above, we see outside of a bedroom and hear what sounds like women screaming from inside. Is that the hookup Page Six was reporting about? Only time will tell, but in the same clip Kenya, 49, says, “There is not enough holy water or sage in the world to erase what went down in this house.”

Finally, Cynthia can be seen telling co-star Drew Sidora, “I had to see his penis.”

Cynthia Bailey has an opinion about why Wendy Williams suggested her daughter Noelle came out on ‘RHOA’ because she ‘needed an interesting storyline.’

Cynthia Bailey, 53, isn’t letting Wendy Williams‘ recent comments about her 21-year-old daughter Noelle Robinson‘s decision to come out affect her too much. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star understands that Wendy, who claimed Noelle may have decided to open up about her sexuality on the Bravo show because Cynthia “needed a more interesting storyline than the happy married lady”, shares her controversial thoughts on her talk show because it’s how she makes money.

“Cynthia is completely unbothered by the entire situation with Wendy Williams and her comments,” a source EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife. “She knows that Wendy will always be Wendy. That’s how she earns a check.”

Wendy’s comments about Noelle came during her interview with Cynthia on the Jan. 7 episode of The Wendy Williams Show, which can be seen below. Once the outspoken host’s suggestion was made, it didn’t take long for the proud mom to respond and defend her daughter’s decision. “Noelle is not a Housewife…she does not actually have to share her life with you guys,” Cynthia said to Wendy in the interview.

She later added, “Let me just say this, this is really important. The reason I really wanted Noelle to tell her story on the show is because as a reality star family at this point, if we don’t talk about it on the show and people find out about it, they almost feel like we’re hiding it.”

Cynthia’s response was a good one and many fans took to social media to praise her for defending her daughter. “Cynthia kept it real and handled herself quite well,” our insider explained. “Mrs. Bailey-Hill looked amazing as always. Wendy knew Cynthia came to slay.”

Noelle made headlines when she came out as sexually fluid on RHOA in 2019. She was just starting her freshman year at Howard University and impressed viewers with her comments about her situation at the time. “People try to box everyone in and put labels on everything, but I don’t really do that. That’s just what it is. There’s a lot of attractive guys, and there’s a lot of attractive girls,” she told her mom on an episode of the show.

Quarantine got the best of Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley, as she revealed their time together ‘led to divorce in five months’, during the Dec 20 episode of ‘RHOA’.

After returning home from her second arrest in Kentucky, during the Dec. 20 episode of The Real Housewives of AtlantaPorsha Williams revealed that she and fiance Dennis McKinley have split. It was actually during a fun-filled reunion with Tanya Sam and sister Lauren Williams that Porsha revealed the heartbreaking news, but she didn’t seem to upset about it.

While on their way to a new friend’s house for an intimate pool party, Tanya expressed how much she appreciated Porsha inviting her to join them because she hadn’t spent any time with girlfriends since quarantine started. And that’s when Porsha asked Tanya how she and fiance Paul Judge are surviving at home together.

“I feel like it has its ups and downs. There were times where I was like, ‘Man, this is such a blessing. I love you.’ And [then] there were times where I just was like [insert cat hissing noise here]. I just was like, ‘Go somewhere!’ And there’s no where to go,” Tanya told the girls.

Porsha then chimed in and shared her own experience from quarantine. “It started different, I’m not going to lie. Quarantine started like honeymoon — like [we were] f***ing everywhere, and cooking everything, and, ‘Oh my God, he’s right here.’ Then, it turned to divorce within five months. I am divorced. It like sped my s*** up.”

Then, during her private confessional, she further explained: “Dennis and I — we had this major argument and it kind of just sent me over the edge. I don’t necessarily like who I am in the relationship right now. This breakup is just something that I need to do for me.”

“I’m so broken, I’m so weak — I can’t even deal with it,” Porsha further told the ladies after revealing how she’s trying to cope with her current situation.

Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey was experiencing some relationship troubles of her own. During a wedding venue tour with fiance Mike Hill, they argued about whether or not it was the size of the wedding that mattered. Mike was dead set on getting married to Cynthia on their intended wedding date — 10/10/20 — but Cynthia was more concerned with the size of the event. She wanted a lot of people there, no matter what — even if that meant postponing the wedding and forgoing their highly-publicized wedding date.

Mike, however, couldn’t wrap his head around that because he, himself, just wanted to get married to Cynthia on that date… no matter who was or wasn’t able to attend and witness the nuptials. Because for him, the marriage is more important than the wedding itself. Sadly, Cynthia didn’t exactly feel the same way. She claimed the most important thing was marrying Mike, but she also said she wanted the wedding to be huge and she shouldn’t be shamed for that.

In other RHOA news, Kenya Moore advised Cynthia to get a prenuptial agreement — and do it sooner, rather than later. While Drew Sidora and husband Ralph agreed to go to marriage counseling.

Sherri Shepherd Shades RHOA’s Kenya Moore & Accuses Her Of Paying ‘Dudes To Be Her Boyfriend’

Sherri Shepherd clapped back at Kenya Moore, after the ‘RHOA’ star sparked a feud for naming Sherri as someone she’d ‘never’ want to guest star on ‘WWHL’ with again.

Sherri Shepherd, 53, threw the shade right back a day after Kenya Moore, 49, dissed her on the Dec. 14 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. In case you missed it, Kenya was asked which guest she would “never” want to appear with again on Andy Cohen‘s show, and the Bravo star picked Sherri. “That was probably my worst appearance. I thought [Sherri] was trying to take over the show. She was very arrogant…She thought she was still on The View and she didn’t know she had apparently been fired,” Kenya had said, while recalling their time guest starring together on WWHL in 2014.

Sherri didn’t hesitate to clap back at Kenya. “It was so funny because I was trying to remember when I did Watch What Happens Live with Kendra,” Sherri began after Kenya’s recent interview was brought up on the Dec. 15 episode of Dish Nation, which Sherri began co-hosting in August. Sherri then went on to diss Kenya: “I was trying to remember and I wish that Kendra could pay me to care like she paid those dudes to be her boyfriend after Season 10, before she got fired from Real Housewives Of Atlanta.”

There is no proof behind Sherri’s accusation, but Kenya has had to deal with such rumors in the past. NeNe Leakes has previously claimed that Kenya wasn’t legally married to (her now estranged husband) Marc Daly, while one of Kenya’s exes — Walter Jackson — once claimed that Kenya asked him to play her boyfriend, which the Bravo star denied on Twitter in May (see below). Sherri didn’t end her shade there, though, and moved on to address the diss that Kenya had made about Sherri’s exit from The View in 2014.

Walter said I asked him to play my BF. He also said he wasn’t paid. I have never asked him that it was in retaliation of me saying what his ex wife said about him being gay. Walter got a cease and desist for lying on me #facts #RHOAReunion https://t.co/BawqDcTJzX

— KENYA MOORE (@KenyaMoore) May 11, 2020

“Before I left The View, we won our first Emmy Kendra, and the ratings have never been higher since I have left,” Sherri continued. “So there you go Kendra, have a great day. I just have so much to do Kendra, I’m working on Dish Nation, I got my other show, I’m writing a book. It’s just so much in my head Kendra, but I want you to have a really nice day, working, because that’s what we’re both doing.”

Sherri and Kenya’s feud happened right after the Dec. 13 episode of RHOA, in which Kenya revealed her plans to divorce Marc. “I’m going to go ahead and file [for divorce]. But I feel like the best step for me is to file for the custody action, and doing a post-nuptial, and then after that’s all signed off, then filing [for divorce],” Kenya had told her co-star Cynthia Bailey. Kenya and Marc, who share their two-year-old daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly, announced their separation in Sept. 2019. However, on the very same episode of WWHL that Kenya shaded Sherri on, the Bravo star revealed that she has “not filed for divorce” after all, and that Marc is currently “fighting for his marriage.”

Porsha Williams said her life ‘changed’ forever after getting arrested in Kentucky, during the Dec. 6 season premiere of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’.

Porsha Williams stepped into her family legacy during the Dec. 6 season premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, when she tirelessly lent her voice and efforts to the Black Lives Matter movement. Speaking out against systemic racism, Porsha attended two different protests a ran away from rubber bullets as the core four — Porsha, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, and Cynthia Bailey — kicked off Season 13, but her passion about fighting for justice later landed her and 87 other protesters in jail for 13 hours.

Even so, Porsha had no regrets about getting arrested in Kentucky. “As disgusting as that place was, being inside that cage with [30 other women] actually changed my life,” Porsha said during her private confessional. “I’ve never shared my soul with people that I had just met. And we were sharing it because a soul [Breonna Taylor] had been lost, which was so ironic about the whole thing.”

Porsha then went on to say that her biggest takeaway from the experience is that she’s “going to do it again”, unapologetically.

Meanwhile, a few of the other ladies were dealing with relationship drama amidst the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. For Cynthia Bailey, who was busy planning to marry the man of her dreams, Mike Hill, she had to make some tough decisions. Either she could postpone her wedding altogether or do what Mike wanted to do, which was to scale down the guest list so they could make the event safer for everyone. But Cynthia couldn’t imagine getting married in front of a smaller crowd, and that upset Mike because he worried that Cynthia was more excited for the wedding than the actual marriage.

As for Kenya — she revealed that her fairytale romance with Marc Daly continued to be on the rocks after a difficult year.  Even though they got to a better place, following his initial ask for a divorce last year, Kenya revealed that coronavirus just made everything worse for them. Kenya told Cynthia and Kandi that they had been separated for several months, and he stopped putting in any effort, so they urged her to “pull the plug” and finally end her marriage. But Kenya didn’t seem totally on board with that idea just yet.

‘RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey revealed why Mike Hill didn’t get lucky on their wedding night in this EXCLUSIVE new interview!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Cynthia Bailey, 53, married Fox Sports commentator Mike Hill, 50, on Oct. 10 but they waited on consummating their marriage. “No! No!” Cynthia told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY when asked if she had sex on her wedding night. “I was like a shell. I had nothing else to give. We both passed out,” she divulged.

The couple partied along with 250 guests into the wee hours of the morning and wanted to continue to #cHill, which happened to be their hashtag for the evening. “When we got home, we took off our clothes and we showered and we got into bed,” Cynthia — who stunned in a gorgeous sequin and mesh gown — revealed during our episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live from her Lake Bailey home in Atlanta. “We turned on Netflix and it was just kind of like, ‘Do we have to have sex?’ because we just had gotten married? Do we really have to do this right now?”

The new bride was had every reason to feel exhausted! After dealing with extra stress due to pulling off the wedding of her dreams during a worldwide pandemic, Cynthia just needed to relax after saying I do. “Because we were too damn tired!” Cynthia revealed. “I was like, ‘Babe. You have me for the rest of your life. Can you check me in two days? We were mentally and physically exhausted. I don’t know how someone actually has sex after they get married. You’re exhausted.”

Both good friends Steve Harvey, 63, the duo were introduced by the talk show host when they were guests on his show in April 2018. Steve was trying to set-up Cynthia at the time and brought on a few men to introduce her to. Cynthia and Mike hit it off immediately and got engaged in July 2019 at the opening of The Bailey Wine Cellar in Atlanta which Cynthia owns. Bravo cameras caught it all as their children, Noelle Robinson, 20, Kayla Hill, 18, and Ashlee Hill, 19, were in on the entire proposal.

Though Mike didn’t get lucky on the actual wedding night, Cynthia has since made up for it. “But be clear, we made up for it the day after and the day after that,” Cynthia added. “But no, he did not get the cookies on wedding night!” The couple also wrote their own vows for the ceremony, adding to the romance of the special event.

Cynthia is staying put in Atlanta for now as she finishes filming season 13 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Although she’s going to miss working with her good friend Eva Marcille, 35, the duo are busy working with Seagram’s Escapes as they launch Seagram’s Escapes Holiday Marketplace: Featuring black-owned businesses. They hope together they can help drive sales during the 2020 holiday shopping season!

Kandi Burruss gave the cast of ‘Cats’ a run for their money with her feline costume! The ‘RHOA’ star even used prosthetic makeup to go the extra mile for her ‘costume party.’

Kandi Burruss, 44, didn’t wear your average cat costume. Instead of simply throwing on a headband with ears and calling it a day, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star transformed into a realistic feline with body and face paint (well, and a headband too). Kandi credited this sexy cat look to makeup artist @lahluvie!

A post shared by Kandi Burruss (@kandi) on Oct 22, 2020 at 5:28pm PDT

The costume didn’t end there. Kandi applied white press-on nails from celebrity nail tech @imnails to mimic the pointy talons on a cat, and a high ponytail that was held in place by a chic gold wrap (hair extensions courtesy of stylist Jodie Rowlands). For her outfit, the Bravo star rocked an asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder cheetah print top — was there really any other choice for this cat-themed look?
Kandi got all dressed up for a special occasion, besides it being Halloween season. “Someone said they were having a costume party & I said ‘Purrrrrfect!’,” Kandi captioned her Halloween look. Kandi’s friends and followers thought the cat transformation was “purrfect” too! “Killed it!,” her RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey commented, while RHOA friend Marlo Hampton left a string of fire emojis for Kandi’s fire look. Love & Hip Hop: New York star Yandy Smith also chimed in to write, “Oh you snapped!!”

Kandi shared a video of her getting-ready process on her Instagram Story, which showed her makeup artist applying prosthetic makeup on Kandi’s face. However, the RHOA star admitted that she was glad to transform back into a human after being a cat for a night. “I got to take these damn lashes off, I got to take this crap off my face, and I got to take these dang nails off. I don’t know how you girls do these super long nails,” Kandi admitted as she filmed herself removing the heavy makeup.

Halloween may still be a week away, but celebrities like Kandi are already showing off their costumes! Bella Thorne turned into a magical fairy with her sister Dani Thorne, while Vanessa Hudgens transformed into a spider queen with her “Black Widow” costume.

Cynthia Bailey walked down the aisle with the prettiest hints of pink! The makeup artist responsible for creating the dreamy look, Alexandra Butler, broke down the exact products she used on the ‘RHOA’ star’s wedding day.

With rose gold eyes and the perfect contour, Cynthia Bailey was a beautiful bride at her nuptials with Fox Sports broadcaster Mike Hill, 50, on Oct. 10. Makeup artist Alexandra Butler was the mastermind behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s gorgeous bridal look, and she revealed to HollywoodLife how you too can recreate it in an EXCLUSIVE interview. Best of all, Alexandra revealed that Cynthia’s wedding day look only took “about an hour and a half” or so!

“Because her skin is really, really nice, we wanted to make sure that the staying power of the makeup would last throughout the entire night,” Alexandra began, and revealed that she used BECCA Cosmetic’s Poreless Priming Perfector, which she said is good for ensuring that the makeup “stays on really, really well.” Step two was the brows.
“With Cynthia, she typically has her hair in some sort of blondish brown so to do her brows, I used two different brow colors. That way I can make sure to do that gradient, soft front of the brow into a normal brow. I used the Benefit [Precisely My Brow] brow pencil in 4 as well as the Anastasia brow pencil [Wiz in Caramel] on her,” Alexandra revealed. To give the RHOA star “that nice, sharp and clean shape,” Alexandra added that she used “a little concealer” and gave the Bravo star’s brows “some highlight” while softening them up with Mac’s Brow Set in Girl Boy.
Alexandra moved on to the most important feature in this entire look: the eyes! “We really wanted her eyes to be the standout of the whole look and with her dress being that rose gold,” Alexandra explained to HollywoodLife, referring to the sequined wedding dress, designed by Nneka C. Alexander of Brides by Nonathat, that Cynthia stunned in. So, Alexandra decided to play with some rose gold and mauve-like pink eyeshadow colors and added a “little bit of smoke” in the eye corner. As for what products she used, Alexandra explained, “I started out with a pink dye by MAC [Prolongwear Paint Pot] in the color ‘Layin’ Low.’ It just kind of helps your eye shadow stay on all day. Then I used a Too Faced palette [Pumpkin Spice Eyeshadow Palette] that is so gorgeous mixed with some other colors.”

Alexandra even gave us her best tips for blending matte eyeshadow with shimmery colors! “What I usually do is I go into her crease with a warm, brown shade as close to her skin tone, maybe a tint darker, and I create a transition color — so whatever color shadow we use on her actual eyes. It’ll blend into that color and that color will blend into her skin,” the makeup artist explained. She continued, “I start out with that on the bare eyes, then I put it on the paint pod and after that, I came back with something deeper in her crease to try and create all this smoke. And then I come back with the shimmery pinks and the golds placed on her lid so they don’t blend into her lid and the darker colors. I do the shimmery part last, that way I can put on the finishing touches of the eye.”
Princess Cut” lash extensions from The Vavoom Factory completed the eyes! “We wanted to give it a little more drama for the wedding because Cynthia loves a good lash and we knew that we wanted to make her eyes pop,” Alexandra explained. With the eyeshadow and lashes applied, Alexandra tackled the main face makeup next!

“For her concealer and foundation, we used this brand called The Lip Bar [The Lip Bar Skin Serum Foundations 4:01 and 3:02]. It has some pretty foundations and concealer that we used on her to even out her skin and I also mixed with that, it’s a bronzing primer. It’s a glow. It’s by a company called Omglo Cosmetics and the serum was in the color ‘Suga.’ I mixed that with her foundation to give it an iridescent, glowy kind of look,” Alexandra shared.

“For her cheeks, I used Maréna Beauté in Marron, this coral-y color. I cocktailed that with a little bit of this Juvia’s Place [Saharan Blush Palette Vol. 1 in ‘Lila’ and ‘Toby’ colors] palette,” Alexandra continued. And finally, that left her with the last but crucial step: contour! “For her contour — Cynthia has amazing cheek bones. We contoured her so that we could give her that ‘bronze-y, she just came from the beach’ look. I used Black Up Cosmetics as well as Black Radiance, their face powder [Black Radiance’s Pressed Powder in ‘Ebony’ mixed with Black Up Cosmetics Contour Kit in 4], and I mixed those together.”

After sitting in Alexandra’s makeup chair, Cynthia went on to tie the knot with Mike in front of a reported wedding crowd of 250 people at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Georgia Her RHOA co-stars Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss and Eva Marcille were also there for the special day as bridesmaids!

Cynthia Bailey is married! Her co-star Porsha Williams attended the beautiful ceremony after splitting from Dennis McKinley, however he was also there as a friend of the groom.

Porsha Williams and her former fiance Dennis McKinley were both seen at Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey‘s Oct. 10 wedding to Mike Hill — but they didn’t attend together. One day prior to the ceremony, HollywoodLife reported that the couple had called it quits, after he admitted to cheating on the Bravo star while she was pregnant with their daughter. A source who was at the wedding told HL exclusively that the former couple did not attend together.

“Porsha arrived without Dennis and with a friend [Shamea Morton]. She arrived shortly before the ceremony, which started an hour and a half late and she left at the very beginning of the party with the same girls she arrived with,” the source told us, adding, “Everyone from the cast was there except for Tanya and everyone was wondering where she was.” Porsha smiled for a snap with the father of her 18-month-old daughter Pilar Jhena, as she rocked a black strapless gown and a plastic protective face shield.
The insider also dished on other details of the beautiful ceremony. “Kenya Moore was on mask patrol all night. If she saw you without a mask and you weren’t eating or drinking, she had no issue coming up to you and telling you to put it on. Gizelle [Bryant] was in a face shield and Kenya went up to her to ask her to put a mask on underneath and Gizelle was not having it. Gizelle was there because [husband] Jamal is friends with the couple.”

The source also added, “The party went until the venue shut down. A lot of guests had trouble leaving because Ubers kept cancelling. It was a beautiful night. People kept saying their feet hurt because there was nowhere to sit and there were so many stations due to social distancing guidelines.”
Earlier in the week, a source close to Porsha and Dennis told us they had called it quits, despite trying to work things out for the sake of their daughter. “Porsha and Dennis very quietly broke up awhile ago. They’ve been off and on for quite some time now and are trying to work things out. They have a baby together which is why they’re still trying,” HL was told.

Cynthia Bailey crushed a troll who body shamed her on Instagram, telling them that there’s no reason she needs to lose weight — her fiancé thinks she’s totally hot!

Come after Cynthia Bailey, she’ll come after you! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 53, was showing off a stunning two-piece outfit on Instagram that made her look positively gorgeous. In the comments section, though, there was a lone hater who felt the need to tell the mogul to “lose some weight.” She had the perfect response. “@itsmikehill ain’t complaining,” she commented, tagging her fiancé and adding an emoji with its tongue sticking out.

Truly, the audacity of that commenter. Cynthia looked fabulous in her “black on black” outfit, which featured high-waisted bell bottoms and a cropped, cold shoulder top with billowing sleeves. She showed off a hint of stomach and completed the look with a black handbag, sandals, and gold hoop earrings. Totally, effortlessly chic.

Cynthia, whose wedding to fiancé Mike Hill is now just a month away, actually just lost a significant amount of weight. The Bravo star gained 20 pounds while quarantining during the COVID-19 crisis, and shared with HollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE interview how she was able to shed it all. Basically, Cynthia spent her quarantine in Los Angeles, where food became her “happy place.” But when she headed to her lake house in Georgia, she forced herself to get back on track.

“When I returned back to Lake Bailey by myself, I was able to kind of manage my food a little bit better — because I didn’t have my family with me and honestly some days I didn’t even eat as much as before,” she explained in an episode of our TVTalk series on Instagram. She tried out intermittent fasting and filled her kitchen with healthy foods, like big salads. “I just started slimming down. It was pretty awesome! I didn’t realize how good I actually looked until I put on a two-piece. I was like, ‘Wait a minute! I actually look okay!” she said.

Cynthia and Mike’s wedding is just around the corner. They had to postpone their nuptials due to the pandemic, but rescheduled for October 10 in Atlanta. She told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY in May that everything was in “God’s hands” when it came to planning the new ceremony and reception. It looks as if all’s going as planned, though!

NeNe Leakes recently shut down reports that she had been ‘fired’ from ‘RHOA’, but she has yet to sign a contract — and the cast has mixed feelings about whether or not they want the ‘OG’ to return!

It’s hard to imagine Real Housewives of Atlanta without OG NeNe Leakes, 52, especially for longtime cast member Porsha Williams, 38! “Porsha is really hoping that NeNe does sign her contract and come back to the show,” an insider close to the ladies spills to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “They’ve gotten extremely close especially during quarantine. NeNe is like a mother hen to her and always is checking in on [her 1-year-old daughter] PJ, it’s sweet. They’ve come really far,” the source also told us.

The rest of the cast, however — which includes Kandi Burruss, 44, Cynthia Bailey, 53, and Kenya Moore, 49 — are indifferent about NeNe returning for season 13. “The other ladies don’t care either way if NeNe returns or not. They’re not surprised that NeNe hasn’t signed her contract yet because she does this every season,” our insider spilled. “Last year she wasn’t in the first few episodes because she refused to sign her contract. They know NeNe is NeNe. They know she doesn’t make or break the show and feel it’ll go on successfully with or without her in it,” they concluded.

A recent report surfaced that the Never Make the Same Mistake Twice author was fired from RHOA, but NeNe’s manager Steven Grossman set the record straight. “It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA. Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.” He went on to confirm that they “have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically,” hilariously signing off with NeNe’s signature catchphrase, “bloop.”

NeNe herself appeared to cryptically respond to the June 17 report, posting a series of laughing-crying emojis to Twitter along with a dramatic screenshot of herself erupting in laughter to Instagram just hours after. “I can’t chileeeeeeee,” NeNe wrote via Instagram, hinting that that the reports were, in fact, false.

Notably, Eva Marcille, 35, confirmed she was not returning for season 13 on June 16. “I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided. However, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities,” she said in statement.

Amid swirling rumors that Cynthia Bailey has been let go from ‘RHOA,’ a source EXCLUSIVELY reveals if the Bravo star is actually ‘walking away’ from the show.

Don’t let the rumors scare you. Cynthia Bailey, 53, is set on turning her 10-season run on The Real Housewives of Atlanta into 11 seasons! “Cynthia has no plans of walking away from RHOA,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife. In addition to the reports that claimed RHOA had let go of Cynthia, the Bravo star herself stirred rumors since she’s not advertising “RHOA” in her Instagram and Twitter bios (like many of her co-stars are).

In the meantime, fans will just have to wait for Bravo’s official announcement of the Season 13 cast! For now, Cynthia “is spending a lot more time in LA during the quarantine with her family,” our source adds. This is only a temporary situation, though. She “plans to return back to Atlanta to start planning her wedding [with fiancé Mike Hill] as soon as it is safe to do so,” the insider continues. “Cynthia’s focus at this time is family and staying productive and healthy during these very uncertain times.”

Cynthia has no choice but to focus on herself and her family. “HollywoodLife. “Everything is still being figured out for the next season.” Understandable, given that RHOA has yet to air its three-part reunion for Season 12, which will begin on May 10. The reunion wasn’t even filmed until April 23, meaning the ladies will need a breather.

Cynthia has even said it herself — she’s not entertaining any thoughts about leaving RHOA! “I have no plans to leave RHOA at this time,” Cynthia told The Shade Room in an interview published on May 5. “Every year there are rumors saying that I am getting fired, or not returning. I’ve been a peach holder consistently for 10 years now. I love my cast, and my Bravo family. I am looking forward to next season.” Furthermore, Cynthia assured the rumors of her termination were “completely false” and pointed out, “We just recently filmed the reunion, and have not started contract negotiations yet.”
