It might be a pandemic during filming for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but there is no shortage of drama and storylines with the cast.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta are back for season 13 and the cast might be small, but it is good! Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Porsha Williams, and newcomer Drew Sidora have quite a monumental season ahead of them given everything that happened with the pandemic. We didn’t get to meet Drew on this episode because there was so much to catch up on, but she seems like she will fit right in.
The first episode focused a lot on the discrepancies between a normal season and this pandemic season. Everyone had masks on during filming and the fourth wall was broken to give us a better look at how things were happening. The ladies discussed how they were quarantined at home with their families and how that impacted their lives. Then they got into the Black Lives Matter movement, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor.
Porsha took on a very active role in the protests and movement. Porsha’s grandfather, Hosea Williams, marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and was very involved in the civil rights movement. Remember when Porsha thought the underground railroad has real trains? Look how far she has come! She was arrested at one of the protests back in July, too.
Kenya has focused on Marc Daly again, but this time hopefully to move forward with the divorce. Kenya told her lawyer that she was a great communicator, which was followed by a shady production clip of Kenya saying, “Basically, your daughter is a ho!” The shade of it all. Kenya said she had been married for three years, but it truly seems that they have been on the outs more than they have been on the in’s. Kandi and Cynthia urged her to move on from Marc, but Kenya doesn’t seem to be 100% there yet.
Kandi has a full house at home again and is also focused on her family. She doesn’t need drama to be interesting though, we always enjoy seeing her family on the show. Cynthia is also working towards solidifying her family life with a pandemic wedding. She spent most of the time quarantining in California but is back in Atlanta now to film with the ladies.
The regular storylines of seasons past don’t hold a candle to all of the drama ahead of us for The Real Housewives of Atlanta during 2020. So buckle up, grab your mask and your wine, because RHOA is officially back!
