Though Kenya Moore made countless, shameless efforts to steal the limelight in this week's episode of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta', the real star was absolutely Gregg Leakes. Oh sure, Kenya had her moments, but they were all ghastly. Kenya's 'hits' this week involved (in no order and sans all context) firearms, twerking, and inciting Nene Leakes to a fit of true rage. But none of that came close to touching the sight of Gregg gormless trying on his wife's accessories and then later on, handing her arriving guests roses in the manner of 'The Bachelor'.
Comparatively speaking, Kenya's been pretty quiet this season. By which I mean most of scenes have featured herself and her bestie/hired-hand Brandon hitting walls and dancing (poorly) to entertain themselves. I really wanted to make it the entire season without talking about that, but it's their thing. It's all they do. It's gotten strange. I kind of had to point out that it was happening. Or at least, it used to happen.
I can't see Brandon going back to play with Kenya again soon. The woman got giggly and then pointed her gun at him when they were discussing what she should pack for her girls' weekend. Plus, I mean Kenya, everyone knows: Leave the gun, take the cannoli.
By the end of the episode (as is often the case with these planned lady-excursions) the gang had not even begun their drive to Savannah. Nene was graciously keeping her fiercer angels at bay when her guests made it clear they were going to play it fast and loose in terms of adhering to the 11:00am meet-up time.
Nene would have let it slide. But then Kenya showed up and wouldn't let it go. I half-expected producers to wheel out a dead horse for her flog. She would've gone at it happily, covering its corpse with welts and droplets of her cocktail. It was all enough to put Nene into a foul mood. I was in a foul mood, so I get it.
What Kenya didn't anticipate was that Kandi Burruss was arriving with emotional baggage large enough to contain a device to bring that dead horse back to join the living. The stress of dealing with her mother's machinations have taken a toll. Kandi and Kenya were getting into it like whoa, setting the stage for the worst (best?) ladies' trip in Housewives history.
Where does Kenya get off sticking her nose in?
