I’ve had this post in the pipeline for weeks. I just didn’t know if I wanted to write it. I’ve seen the rumors about Kenya, and I’ve know exactly what is going on with the production of season ten. I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to address all the stupidity. Don’t get me wrong, I normally don’t have a problem addressing stupidity, but I was following Kenya’s lead. It looked to me like Kenya was going high while the usual suspects go low. I really didn’t want to give the rumors any oxygen.
But today, Kenya is addressing the stupidity.
So let’s talk about season ten. I’d like to start with Sheree. Last season, Sheree burned her fake relationship storyline with Bob by accusing the father of her children of being abusive on national TV. She never mentioned this before, but suddenly, she needed a storyline. Production, especially for RHOA, seems to think all of these women need a man to be interesting. So Sheree plays the abused woman card. I would never question a woman who claims abuse, I do question the timing. I do believe she dropped some charges on Bob Whitfield for a storyline on a TV show. So for season ten, she needs a new storyline. Now here is what Mama Joyce’s streets say about Sheree. The streets say Sheree does not want a man. That’s a problem. Production has this weird thing about everyone having a man, so she is going to be fake engaged to a federal prisoner. Voila. She has a man, without having a man. Everyone is happy.
Porsha is hanging by a thread this season. She’s been excluded from several scenes. She is the reason we have to have Marlo back this season. In San Francisco, Kandi, Kenya, Nene and Cynthia went one way and Sheree and Porsha went the other. Marlo was brought in to stir of the conflict. These shows are all about conflict and Marlo is a shit disturber. I think that plan worked out in San Francisco, but now that Marlo is in more episodes, Marlo seems to have move to the majority side. If RHOA were Big Brother, we’d call Marlo the ultimate floater. She will move to where the power is. This leaves Porsha trying to find someone to get engaged to in order to stay on a reality TV show. I don’t know if the sucker has been found yet, but I do know that is the plan.
Cynthia has found a relationship, that was announced during filming. Nene has Gregg’s health as her storyline, even though Gregg is just fine and it’s not a major issue. Kandi has Todd and their restaurant. And then there is Kenya.
When season nine aired, we saw a lot of Kenya and Matt. We saw Kenya doing press throughout the season where she made it seem like they were still together. They were not. They had broken up. Matt was not taking it well. She was seeing Marc. She kept it very quiet. But a few of her castmates knew she was in a serious relationship. And that is important.
Tamara Tattles exclusively broke the story that Kenya had eloped. Then all the gossip started. Despite the fact that Tamara Tattles had exclusive eye witnesses and photographic evidence, the response was to cry bullshit. It’s a fake wedding! It’s all for storyline! Show us the receipts!
Now how the hell does that make sense? How could anyone believe that Kenya flew her family and friends down to St. Lucia to have a wedding quietly where the other guests at the resort were shielded from the ceremony and not allowed on that part of the beach, because she wanted to use it for storyline?
That Marc brought his family down as some sort of weird conspiracy to …? To what? Further the storyline of some women on a reality show? If it was a fake wedding, why would Marc’s family play along?
What has ever happened to critical thinking skills?
Here is Kenya’s problem. I’ve mentioned it here before. Micheal Beck is the showrunner this season. Michael Beck has been the showrunner on Don’t Be Tardy for years. He is in love with the Biermanns. His one and only close tie coming into this gig is Kim Biermann. Kim’s storyline was determined at the end of season nine. She was coming for Kenya. She was going to go for all her most intimate soft spots and attack her personal relationships. She was going to attack her over her lack of relationship with her mother (as if Kim has room to talk there) and her main storyline was to needle Kenya about not being married. It’s despicable. What Kim didn’t know, but others did was that Kenya was indeed in a relationship.
Let’s hope people like him are rare. Unfortunately, most of them are in the business of degrading women on reality shows.
Her new husband, Marc, did not want anything to do with her reality show job. He just wanted her.
So now Kim’s storyline is to rant and rave about Kenya’s marriage being fake. She’s actually online responding to Instagrams about Kenya’s marriage leaving comments about her fake marriage. She’s trying to drag others into the storyline to make it a thing. Michael Beck seems to think this is great TV. I personally don’t think it will play well.
But here is the bigger issue. Some of the people who knew she was in serious relationship chose not to stick up for her. Then her grandmother who raised her died. No mercy.
This is the world we live in now.
Today Kenya posted on Instagram, “It never ceases to amaze me the lengths people will go to discredit you, spread propaganda, boldface lies and publish entire articles based on an “anonymous” or unknown source. My marriage and my life will not be made a mockery of. I ignored this empty rhetoric in the past…No more. Enough is enough. I’m fighting back. Be warned, I’m coming for you and we all know how this will end for you. I always have the last laugh. #lawsuit #receipts #reallove#DontF*ckWithMyFamily”
