There is lots going on in the real housewives world and I wish I felt like giving it my full attention. I’ll try to give you as much as I know and I hope this helps.
Let’s start with the RHOA. Nene Leakes is in NYC doing way too much press for Chicago. Seriously, I think she is doing the most to keep people away from the show. Porsha Williams is also in NYC doing press somewhere??? for RHOA.
Cynthia is doing some west coast press in LA and spent the day with Sonja Morgan and Kyle Richards who all appeared on ….. remember that show, I think it might just be online… with the Asian guy who used to work for Vogue and another girl? Anyway, Cynthia, Kyle and Sonja were both on it.
Nene posted a photo today of her and Cynthia “in the big apple.” The only problem with that is Cynthia is in LA. The other problem with that is a bunch of people are asking me why Nene and Cynthia are sitting together in NYC both in black with Nene in a veil?
However. I have heard that there will be a few, what we used to call “scabs” back in the days of picket lines, who film with Nene and/or show up for her opening night (which last I heard was Monday) for some reconciliation scenes for the end of this season of RHOA in preparation for her grand return to RHOA next season.
Absolutely NO ONE was happy to see her return but once she did a few people saw the writing on the walls and decided they better play nice. Those were Cynthia, Phaedra and Porsha. The less desparate of the crew were less willing. I believe that Nene and Cynthia and their men went on a double date sort of scene in Jamaica. Phaedra has been gone from her hood for two days and the full complement of child care people are there. Any combination of those three could be in NYC to film with Nene or not over the next few days. I have seen photos of Cynthia and Nene supposedly filmng in the last three days but I am not sure they are actually current. Anyway, any number of those three could go up for Chicago. Nene was SUPER pissed none of them went up to Cinderella for the cameras.
And finally, Page Six ran a story about Sonja, Ramona and Luann basically saying they had been demoted to day players. My sources say that is not exactly true. Those three are notorious for holding out beyond the filming date. They are all back filming. Yesterday was Ramona’s birthday and all the girls were there with the cameras and Sonja had to take off to the west coast that same day to film the talk show today.
Apologies if this makes less sense than usual. It’s the end of day two of antibiotics. I am not sure how much longer to stick it out before paying another $100 to go to the Doc in the Box in the Kroger. Thanks for coming around while I rest.
