Kandi Burruss ‘Shocked’ By RHOA Season 14 Fight With Marlo — HN

Kandi Burruss dishes on her explosive fight with Marlo Hampton in RHOA season 14. She shares that this was even than the one shown in the trailer.

In The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 14 trailer, fans see Kandi Burruss and Marlo Hampton get into it, but Kandi recently shared that there was another more explosive fight that had her “shocked.” Marlo had been on RHOA for many seasons as a “friend of” but despite not being a full cast member, she always brought the drama. The Le’ Archive owner was never afraid to speak her mind, which resulted in epic feuds with former housewives Nene Leakes and Porsha Williams. After fans, along with Kandi, pushed for Marlo to become a housewife, she finally got her peach in RHOA season 14.

Kandi, unlike Marlo, likes to stay out of drama unless someone actively comes for her. Fans love Kandi for being a reasonable peace-maker but also being unafraid to speak her mind. Kandi’s biggest feud on RHOA was with her former best friend Phaedra Parks, which started when Phaedra accused Kandi of not being supportive through her divorce from Apollo Nida. Kandi then accused Phaedra of cheating on Apollo before he went to prison. However, the feud exploded when Phaedra told Porsha that Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker allegedly planned to drug Porsha and have s*x with her. Following the accusation, Phaedra was fired from RHOA and Kandi never spoke to her former BFF again.

Although Kandi and Marlo have had a peaceful relationship over the years, it seems as if Marlo is trying to earn her peach this season. In a recent Behind the Velvet Ropes with David Yontef podcast, Kandi revealed that there was an unexpected fight between her and Marlo that was “way worse” than the one shown in the trailer. Kandi shared, “She didn’t like what I had to say and it just blew up. We started going back and forth and it was very disrespectful, some of the stuff she was saying. That’s how I feel. Now she said I was being disrespectful, so I guess I’ll just leave it at that. We were being very disrespectful to each other.”

Marlo Hampton in a heated conversation on an episode of RHOA
Kandi was one of Marlo’s biggest advocates over the years for her getting a spot on RHOA. After the fight, she told David, “I was mad as hell. Like, really? Like, I didn’t want to talk to her ever again for real.” The Kandi and the Gang star went on to say, “I was definitely shocked at some of the things that she said because it was not cool at all. So I was definitely shocked that she went there with some of the stuff that she said.” Kandi shared that she and Marlo made up afterward, but she feels trepidation about watching the fight play back on RHOA season 14 and eventually rehashing it during the reunion.

Kandi admitted to being stubborn and not being the easiest person to get over things. However, she also spilled that Marlo got into it with other cast members of RHOA. Fans already saw tension between Marlo and Kenya during the first episode of RHOA season 14, despite their efforts to be cordial towards each other. When asked about where she stood between Kenya and former RHOA star Cynthia Bailey’s feud, Kandi was ever the peacemaker and said that she had heard both of their sides and only wishes for them to rebuild their friendship.

Kenya Moore Has a Major Update on That Friend Who Walked Out of Brooklyn’s Birthday Party — HN

The RHOA cast member also revealed what we didn’t see of Shereé Whitfield and Drew Sidora’s drama at the tea party.

Kenya Moore threw the sweetest tea party to celebrate daughter Brooklyn Daly’s third birthday in the May 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. However, things quickly took a shady turn when Kenya decided to ask all the ladies to spill the best tea they have on someone.

Though some of the women were a little confused by the decision to play such a shady game at a children’s party, Kenya defended the activity during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on May 15 (clip above). “It was fun tea! It was fun shade,” Kenya said of her intentions for the game. “It was supposed to be someone sleeps with a teddy bear, or someone, you know, drools when they kiss. Something simple.”

Everyone almost spit out their tea after hearing some gossip about Kandi Burruss, in particular. Though Kandi denied the tea in question during the episode, Andy Cohen was more interested in getting to the bottom of which Georgia Peach was the one to write it down. “We kind of got to it,” Kenya said on WWHL. “It was someone that wrote with an orange marker, and there was only one person there that had an orange marker, I think.”

“Does her name rhyme with Arlo?” Andy followed up, presumably referring to Marlo Hampton.

Kenya laughed and said, “Maybe.”

Check the video here.

But Marlo denied spilling that tea, tweeting during this episode of WWHL, “It wasn’t me,” along with the eyes emoji.

Believe it or not, things became even more jaw-dropping when the subject of Shereé Whitfield and Drew Sidora sharing an assistant came up. As the ladies failed to see eye to eye on the matter, one of Kenya’s friends thought the conversation wasn’t really appropriate for a kids’ party and walked away.

Kenya gave an update on that friend during her appearance on WWHL. “She hasn’t been able to, I think, return my calls,” Kenya said, before agreeing that the partygoer “was not wrong” in her feelings about the argument.

Later in this episode of WWHL, Kenya had one more spot of tea to spill about Shereé and Drew’s conflict at Brooklyn’s birthday party, sharing that there was even more to it that we didn’t see on RHOA. “It got really, really nasty,” she said. “Someone called someone a witch and was talking about a facelift. It was a lot.”

RHOA: Shereé Whitfield Accused of Not Paying Her Assistant by ‘Multiple People’ — HN

“I’m not trying to be messy, but Anthony said she never paid him and I’ve heard that from multiple people,” Drew Sidora told cameras of Shereé Whitfield’s former assistant during Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Shereé Whitfield is already in the hot seat!

During Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the RHOA star — who was last seen during season 10 of the Bravo reality show before making her return this season — found herself at the center of one wild rumor: that she’s skipped out on a bill or two.

Speaking with newly promoted housewife Marlo Hampton, Shereé discovered fellow costar Kandi Burruss was spilling some not-so-fun tea to other cast members.

“Guess what Kandi told me, that you [and fellow cast member Drew Sidora] have the same assistant and you don’t pay him,” said Marlo.

“He didn’t do anything!” Shereé said, referring to her assistant Anthony.

“Why the hell wouldn’t Kandi call and tell you?” asked Marlo. “She should’ve came to me first,” Shereé responded. “I’m surprised you’re saying any of this.”

Speaking with the camera, Shereé spilled some tea of her own.

“Anthony has told me a s—load of things about her husband, her household, everything,” she said. “The streets be talking baby.”

Later, Drew caught up with Anthony to get the real story.

“Let me say this, I love Shereé deeply,” he said. “That’s one of my good, good girlfriends, but I had to cut off all business ties with her. We all know, and it’s no shade, but she don’t like to pay.”

“I’m not trying to be messy, but Anthony said she never paid him and I’ve heard that from multiple people,” Drew told cameras.

Later, Drew brought up the rumor during Kenya Moore’s daughter’s third birthday party.

“Anthony said that he was your assistant, but that he had to cut ties because you never paid him,” she told Shereé. “I don’t know for sure because I don’t know you.”

“If you don’t know for sure then why are you spreading it?” Shereé asked. “Did you not tell Kandi? And then Kandi told Marlo. Can you please tell me what you’re talking about?”

“He just said you never paid him,” said Drew.

“Anthony was never my assistant,” Shereé responded. “Why the f— would I pay somebody if they’re not my assistant?”

“He said he had emails about She By Shereé (Shereé’s clothing line) that he was trying to put together the line and you didn’t want to pay the money for it,” said Drew.

“Are you that desperate that you need an assistant that’s going to talk about all your friends?” she asked. “I thought you were a cool girl when I first met you, but then this stuff comes up, I was like, ‘Okay this is a ditsy b—.’ ”

Drew then admitted that Anthony is “on probation,” despite the countless “rumors” he’s allegedly spreading — including one in particular where he told Shereé that Drew’s husband Ralph is gay.

Last month, Kandi said she was in full support of Shereé returning to RHOA.

Burrus joined Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap, where she addressed the rumors surrounding Shereé’s potential return to the show.

“I always love Shereé,” Burruss, 45, said. “She’s always good TV to me. She’s had some very explosive moments in some of these past seasons. So, I’m here for it, honestly. If they decide that they want Shereé to come back, I’m here for it.”

Whitfield, 52, was an OG Atlanta cast member. After leaving ahead of RHOA’s fifth season, Whitfield officially returned for season 9 but left again after season 10.

Despite Whitfield’s departure in 2018, Burruss said that they have continued to stay in touch over the years.

“I always considered myself to have a good relationship with Shereé,” she said on Housewives Nightcap. “I mean, we’ve had our moments on the show where sometimes we didn’t see eye-to-eye. But, for the most part, you know, I still see her outside of the show sometimes. We still run into each other and I’ve got much love for Shereé.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.

‘RHOA’ Star Kandi Burruss Made a Historic Move With Her Broadway Play — HN

Many fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta know that Kandi Burruss has several passions, including her husband, Todd Tucker, her children, a nice meal, and an even bigger check. The longtime Bravo star has developed multiple projects outside of her Housewives fame. After her first season, she began pitching other spinoffs and got them greenlit by the network. Kandi also started acting on other shows and movies like Lifetime’s 2022 film, Envy.

After over a decade of being a reality TV star and entrepreneur, the singer-songwriter took on a new challenge by taking her talents to Broadway. During Season 14 of RHOA, viewers will see Kandi prepare for her play, Thoughts of a Colored Man, debut. Here’s everything we know about the historic special and Kandi’s involvement.

What to know about Kandi Burruss’s role in the play, ‘Thoughts of a Colored Man.’
Following RHOA’s Season 13 finale, Kandi announced her latest non-reality venture. She signed on as a producer of Thoughts of a Colored Man, a play highlighting the “vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century.” Kandi signed on to produce the play alongside Brian Moreland, Ron Simons, Diana DiMenna, Samira Wiley, Sheryl Lee Ralph, The Shubert Organization, and The Nederlander Organization, per Deadline.

The show, which debuted at the Nederlander Theatre in Oct. 2021, is the first Broadway production written, directed, and produced by Black artists. It also has all-Black male leads such as Tristan “Mack” Wilds and Luke James at the helm. Before its official debut, Kandi shared why she decided to add producer to her many achievements.

“To be a part of the first production starring all Black men, a Black writer, a Black director, a Black lead producing team, it’s an amazing feeling because, throughout my life, I want to know that I’ve been able to make a difference and help people be seen,” Kandi told E! News in Nov. 2021. “This is our opportunity to mix it up, make people smile, and bring people to the theater who haven’t always felt that they were represented.”

‘Thoughts of a Colored Man’ isn’t Kandi Burruss’s first stage production.
While Thoughts of a Colored Man was a new challenge for Kandi, she had a few test runs before she put her producer hat on. In 2014, she wrote, produced, and starred in her play, A Mother’s Love. The play was loosely based on Kandi’s real-life relationship with her mom, Mama Joyce. Throughout her time on RHOA, fans have seen Mama Joyce object to Kandi and Todd’s marriage.

Fortunately for Kandi, Thoughts of a Colored Man seemingly has no connections to her real life. Also, being behind the camera allowed The Chi star to see the entertainment industry differently after over 30 years in the business.

“I know a lot of people may know me from the creative side or in front of cameras, but it’s just important for me to learn the behind-the-scenes portion of whatever I do,” Kandi added in her E! News interview. “When I had the opportunity to come back to the show as a producer, I was so excited because I love theater, and I love Broadway.”

Catch new episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Sunday nights at 8 p.m. EST.

Fans Say These Are The Biggest ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Feuds — HN

‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ is known for its fiery wives and big feuds.

On October 7, 2008, Bravo introduced the world to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the third franchise in their network’s illustrious roster of reality TV shows. It turned a host of women from NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield into globally recognized stars. Later came iconic ladies like Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore. All of which came with their own drama, their own relationships and their own feuds!

Fans instantly fell in love with their big personalities, dramatic looks and fighting. The Atlanta housewives are never one to hold back their feelings, but fans love the many feuds these women have with each other.

Here are some of the best feuds from The Real Housewives of Atlanta which led to physical fights, hair pulling and even housewives being fired from the reality show!

8 Porsha Williams VS. Kenya Moore

These two were part of one of the most memorable of the RHOA fights for fans, the feud featuring Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore is a fan-favorite. Porsha and Kenya got off to a rocky start during season 5 after Porsha referred to the former Miss USA as Miss America, but it soon got worse. Fans of the show still disagree to this day as to whether Williams or Moore was to blame for the beatdown. During the season 6 reunion, Moore accused Williams of cheating on former husband Kordell Stewart.

Unlike other feuds, this one got physical as Williams started pulling Moore’s hair and hitting her. “I can’t believe I did that! I have embarrassed myself!” Williams screamed to the other housewives.

Kenya then tried to demand that Porsha be fired from the reality TV show. Moore and Williams struggled to agree during reunions with the pair fighting on various reunion shows. “You’re a horrible friend with your fake receipts,” Williams said about Moore during the 2020 reunion.

Moore accused Williams of “trying to get a storyline for next year.” And Williams sh*t back, “Even when I wasn’t a housewife, honey, I had more scenes than you.”

7 Phaedra Parks VS. Kandi Burruss

The housewives’ feud began in Season 8, when Phaedra Parks accused Kandi Burruss of not supporting her during her divorce. They later sparred during the Season 9 reunion when Porsha Williams revealed a rumor about Parks.

Parks had apparently shared a rumor involving Burress and her husband, Todd Tucker, planning to dr*g Williams and take advantage of her. “I was shocked, angry, disgusted … I could go on,” later wrote about the rumor. “Even with everything that had happened between me and Phaedra, I still didn’t think Phaedra would go so low as to tell someone that I wanted to dr*g them. ”

Parks was fired from the show for spreading malicious false claims about Burruss. “The question that we look at now with Phaedra is, when the reunion ended, none of the other women wanted to have anything to do with her,” Andy Cohen told E! News.

“How do you shoot a show about a group of friends when no one is speaking to one of the friends?” Burruss expressed during an appearance on Watch What Happens in relation to making up with Parks “Nah,” she replied. “Absolutely not. Come on now … That was too far, that was too much. I’ve never heard anything, no apologies, no nothing.”

6 NeNe Leakes VS. Kim Zolciak

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak have never had the closest relationship and frequently trade insults. Leakes is even suing Zolciak for her racially inappropriate comments. The duo started Season 1 as pals, but once word got out that Zolciak’s then-boyfriend was still married to another woman, their relationship changed.

During the first reunion, Leakes had no problem telling Zolciak-Biermann to “close your legs to married men.” The two continued to argue and feud over Twitter.

In 2009, NeNe Leakes released a memoir full of stories about her past and present. In the book, she described her co-star in an unkind light. “Kim wouldn’t know how to make a dime if you slapped her with a bucket of change. Every dollar that chick has is somebody else’s husband’s money.”

One of the most violent moments of their long-lasting feud was not caught on camera but was discussed extensively on the Bravo show. Zolciak claimed that Leakes tried to “choke her out.” Sheree Whitfield later referred to the incident as not a catfight, but a dogfight.

5 Mama Joyce VS. Carmon Cambrice

Mama Joyce and Carmon Cambrice have never been the closest of friends, but things got heated between the two at Kandi Burruss’ wedding dress fitting. Burruss’ mother very publicly went on a rampage against Kandi’s engagement to Todd. In her mind, Kandi’s assistant Carmon was creeping with Todd behind Kandi’s back.

She told everyone what she thought while holding a shoe in her hand. Joyce accused Carmon, a longtime Burruss friend, of getting Kandi’s “leftovers,” including Todd.

4 Sheree Whitfield VS. NeNe Leakes

In the series premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes showed up at Sheree’s birthday bash, “eyes poppin’, lips bustin’,” only to discover she wasn’t on the party guest list. What followed was a meltdown on Whitfield’s driveway. Many believe this franchise was born from this moment. For a while they looked like friends, but in Season 12 Sheree has had some unkind words about NeNe.

Sheree,told Hollywood Life, after the explosive season 12 reunion “I think she’s very calculated. She has a huge following. It may get people thinking. I don’t know.”

3 Lisa Wu Hartwell VS. Kim Zolciak

Another first season feud, the reunion focused on Hartwell and Zolciak. Dr. Lisa diagnosed Kim as a cancer-free habitual liar who needed a medical intervention. Lisa then offered to flip Kim over the couch in the hope of knocking sense into her.

In 2008, Hartwell accused Zolciak of making false comments suggesting she was a dr*g addict which was why she “didn’t have kids,” which insulted both her and her children. At the time, Zolciak denied the claim.

Hartwell told Us Weekly that she believed Zolciak was feuding with her for the cameras. “I thought she was a fun girl and fun to hang out with…then she just started on me, maybe for the cameras,”

2 Cynthia Bailey VS. Porsha Williams

Things between Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams became violent in Season 8. A fun boat day organized by Kenya Moore ended up going wrong after Bailey took offense to Williams calling her a b****. Moore planned the event after Bailey was going through marital issues with her now ex-husband Peter Thomas.

Williams tried to apologize but it was too late. Insults were thrown between the two women and at one point, Williams stood on top of Bailey. Bailey responded by kicking Williams off of her. Williams ended up needing to be restrained by several security guards before being escorted off the boat.

At a cast lunch, the women made up and later admitted during the season 8 reunion that things were blown out of proportion. Bailey admitted she had too many drinks and that her anger was misplaced.

1 Sheree Whitfield VS. Kim Zolciak

During Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree pulled Kim’s wig off while they were in the middle of an argument. “I felt the need to tug on her wig,” Sheree explained during the 2009 episode. “I did not try to pull it off. I did not want to pull it off. I just wanted to shift it a little bit.”

The pair later became friends, teaming up over their dislike of NeNe Leakes.

Kandi Burruss Says Mama Joyce Had Messy Run-In With Marlo Hampton + RHOA Fans Are Critical — HN

Mama Joyce always has Kandi Burruss’ back.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss teased fans about some of the drama that took place during the current season. She confirmed she had a heated moment with Marlo Hampton. While she didn’t confirm what led to their blowup, Kandi did say she said some horrible things. And the things she said were so out of order that she believes RHOA fans are going to call her out when the scene airs. Regardless, Kandi and Marlo have since made up. In fact, both women confirmed they were able to hash things out over food. So they have already put the entire situation behind them.

Apparently, Mama Joyce didn’t get the memo. According to Kandi, Mama Joyce likes to keep up with what’s reported on the blogs. So she knows that Marlo and Kandi had a blowup while filming season 14. And Mama Joyce knows that Marlo said some nasty things during the argument.

When Marlo tried to recently speak to Mama Joyce at an Xscape concert, Mama Joyce was not having it. And she made it clear to Marlo that she didn’t want to talk and that she is upset about Marlo’s past blowup with Kandi.

While some RHOA fans appreciate how Mama Joyce rides for her daughter, others felt like it’s overkill.

Marlo Hampton is on Mama Joyce’s bad side.
Kandi Burruss and Marlo Hampton had tension on the season 14 premiere of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Marlo invited all the ladies to her Le’ Archive fashion event. She had mannequins dressed in her designer clothes. And the concept of the business is her clothes are available for rent to those in the entertainment industry.

Kandi questioned how Marlo makes her money. While Kenya has said she thinks Marlo has men pay her for her time (and not s*x), Kandi said Marlo must have done an excellent job saving the money she received while she dated a billionaire. Either way, Marlo was able to rent out an expensive ballroom for the evening to show off her clothes. And Kandi couldn’t help but also wonder if Marlo would have been better off having a fashion show with models.

Regardless, Marlo wanted the event to be very Paris-like. And she figured she achieved that by taking more of a museum approach to showing off the items.

While viewers haven’t yet seen Kandi and Marlo’s onscreen blowup, a past trailer showed Marlo accusing Kandi of being promiscuous.

Apparently, Mama Joyce still isn’t feeling Marlo even though she did make peace with Kandi not too long ago.

Kandi took to Instagram Live to tell followers about Marlo’s recent run-in with Mama Joyce at an Xscape concert. Kandi said, “My momma was at the concert. And you know my Mom…know she’s protective of her child now. She’s been watching the blogs. And she’s seen that me and Marlo fell out during the season. I told everybody that me and Marlo cool, we on made up. But my momma still mad. She saw that me and Marlo got into it. And she knows Marlo said something crazy about me.”

She added, “Well, it ain’t shown on TV yet. But my momma is already mad. So my mom was sitting in the front row of the concert. Marlo goes over to talk to her. My mom wasn’t trying to be nice to Marlo.”

Marlo told her the exchange didn’t go well, “When Marlo saw me, she said, ‘Girl, I think your momma ain’t messing with me right now.’” Kandi continued, “She said, ‘ was looking at her and she gave me this look like don’t talk to me.’”

Kandi thinks everyone needs to remember how Mama Joyce moves, “Everybody knows Momma Joyce don’t play.”

Comments from RHOA fans about the incident have been interesting. Some fans feel Mama Joyce has a right to move the way she did. And others believe Mama Joyce shouldn’t involve herself in the drama.

Jeannie Mai Jenkins Addresses Rumors She’s Joining ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ — HN

Jeannie Mai Jenkins is putting an end to the “crazy” rumors that she is joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Jenkins takes the opportunity to address the speculation during Wednesday’s episode of The Real, where she is joined by RHOA star Kenya Moore.

“That was crazy. I literally was just over here having a baby and I’m hearing these rumors, I was like, ‘Where? How am I going to go from this into that because that’s a full-time job,'” Jenkins says, referring to the baby girl she and Jeezy welcomed in January.

Moore goes on to share that she thinks Jenkins would “make an excellent housewife,” but while Jenkins took that as a compliment, she once again shuts down speculation.

“Thank you and I love you ladies too. I love all you ladies, but no … do you know when they say where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire? That was a complete rumor,” Jenkins says. “I haven’t talked to one person, my people haven’t talked to one person from Bravo, so that was a complete rumor that got made up.”

After a bit more back-and-forth banter, Moore asks Jenkins if the door is closed to her considering joining the cast. “The door is closed. It’s sealed. There wasn’t a door to begin with. It was a wall,” Jenkins explains. “There is no door. No, and I say that, just because it’s a lot of work. And even knowing Garcelle [Beauvais], I always ask her, ‘How do you get your mind in the place of going in to shoot and you’re not ready for what might come at you?’ And she tells me too, ‘It’s a full-time job.'”

Rumors of Jenkins appearing on the reality show began to swirl after she relocated to Atlanta where her husband, Jeezy, lives. Speculation was that she was prepared to take Kandi Burruss’ spot.

Burruss addressed the rumors she was being replaced in March. “I didn’t understand. I don’t know who makes these rumors up,” Burruss told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I think somebody secretly wants to get rid of me or something. I’m like, ‘Too late. I already filmed season 14.'”

However, just like Moore, Burruss thinks Jenkins would be a great fit for the show.

“Now here’s the thing, I’m cool with Jeannie and I love her,” she said. “So, please, I would love for her to come on. Like for the next [season].”

Burruss added, “I don’t know if somebody wants her to come through. I mean, it would be great to see her. I would love for her to be a part… We’re friends, so let me be the one to bring her on.”

Kenya Moore Claims Domestic Abuse In Nasty Divorce Battle! — HN

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly are one step closer to striking a divorce settlement deal after the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was accused of withholding her financial documents.

The ex-couple continues to fight it out in court, but legal documents obtained by Radar Online confirm that the duo is working toward a settlement.

Earlier this year, Marc accused Kenya of refusing to provide her financial information and begged the court to intervene. Kenya had reportedly not handed over even basic documentation and failed to submit a proposed child support form. The judge stated that the reality star cited “privacy concerns” in her admission that she had purposely withheld the paperwork after the two sides met in court last month. Kenya and Marc negotiated a privacy agreement as a result of the hearing, and Kenya agreed to turn over the financial docs. The agreement will reopen negotiation talks and allow the divorce to move forward.

Kenya and Marc tied the knot in June 2017. Kenya filed for divorce from the Brooklyn restauranteur in May 2021 and listed September 19, 2019, as the date of their separation. She noted that the couple had been in a “bonafide state of separation since that date.” Kenya described her marriage as “irretrievably broken” with no chance of reconciliation.

Kenya declared war in August 2021 when Marc reportedly tried to stake a claim in the mansion the reality star purchased and renovated in 2015. Kenya bought the house for $515k. Sources alleged at the time that Marc had put money into the home during the couple’s brief marriage.

“Husband seeks an equitable division of the parties’ marital residence,” Marc’s lawyer wrote in legal docs.

Kenya fired back, asking the court to shut down Marc’s claim to the house.

“Respondent is well aware that Petitioner owned and operated the property in question long before the marriage,” her lawyer wrote.

The exes also clashed over whether their daughter, Brooklyn, would be allowed to film RHOA. A Georgia judge ruled that the child could continue filming the show in June 2021, amid the couple’s ongoing custody case.

The judge noted that his decision was reached after hearing arguments about Brooklyn filming the show and assessing “disputed instances of domestic violence” based on the reality star’s testimony. The judge called the filming disagreement a “particular point of contention,” for the estranged spouses. He said that he was “not convinced, and no evidence has been shown” that Kenya would allow the child in “any environment that might not be in the minor child’s best interest, or may in any way be considered dangerous or inappropriate.”

The judge ultimately found Kenya to be a protective and involved mother. The order stated that Kenya would be the one to decide when Brooklyn appeared on RHOA, but that she would be required to inform Marc of the child’s filming schedule. He added that Brooklyn was only to appear in “age-appropriate” scenes.

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

Tamar Braxton Falls Out With NeNe Leakes + Gets Back Together With David Adefeso? — HN

Tamar Braxton is no stranger to controversy.
“Braxton Family Values” star Tamar Braxton has no problem defending her friends when she thinks it’s warranted. In fact, Tamar hasn’t appreciated the criticism NeNe Leakes has been receiving. After Gregg Leakes passed away from colon cancer, NeNe found love. And she’s been in a public relationship with Nyonisela Sioh. He’s a Charlotte businessman. In fact, his specialty is couture suits. Although some people are happy to see NeNe find love again, others have been critical. They think NeNe showing off her new boo months after Gregg’s death is problematic.

“Married to Medicine” star Dr. Heavenly Kimes even said that she didn’t think it was a good look for NeNe to post the man on her social media accounts. And she said it probably would have been best for NeNe to wait to go public with the romance.

Either way, Tamar didn’t like how critical people were being of NeNe’s openness about her new romance. She defended NeNe. And she said that NeNe deserved to be happy. Plus, Gregg made it clear that he wanted NeNe to love again after he passed away.

Well, people are now thinking NeNe and Tamar may no longer be on good terms. Plus, fans are also suspecting that Tamar may have gotten back together with David Adefeso.

Did Tamar Braxton and NeNe Leakes end their friendship?
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans have been seeing NeNe Leakes in the headlines plenty as of late. She has decided to sue Andy Cohen, Bravo, and others. NeNe has alleged that she was mistreated behind the scenes because she is a black woman. And she has accused those who are in power of allowing racism to go on behind the scenes. In fact, NeNe accused Kim Zolciak of making racist comments and not being punished for it.

People have also had a lot to say about NeNe’s love life. She went public with her current boyfriend months after Gregg Leakes’ death. So some people have accused NeNe of moving on way too fast.

Well, Tamar Braxton had no problem getting on social media to defend her friend. Interestingly enough, fans are wondering if the two women may have fallen out. They no longer follow each other on Instagram. And Tamar has been posting messages about fake friends on her Instagram story.

In one post, she wrote, “And Ima real stay TF away from me FOREVER type chick when I figure you out 🙅🏽‍♀️.” In another, Tamar wrote, “Don’t trust people who don’t want to be friends with you in front of people who are not friends with you!! No exceptions!!”

You can check out the screenshots in the video below.

While many are thinking the door may be closed on NeNe and Tamar’s friendship, they also think Tamar and David Adefeso may be giving their relationship another chance.

Things fell apart after they filmed Tamar’s spinoff, “Get Your Life.” In fact, abuse accusations were made.

However, their nasty breakup didn’t stop David from giving Tamar a shot out on Mother’s Day. They went from not speaking at all to David calling Tamar one of his best friends.

He wrote, “Then there’s @tamarbraxton. Thank you for teaching me how to love. And through all life’s challenges, growing together to become best friends.”
