Cutting right to the chase, NeNe Leakes has been revealed as the mastermind behind ‘SnakeGate.’
Yovanna appeared during the reunion and revealed that the ‘SnakeGate’ audio never actually existed and that it was all a ploy NeNe created to stir-up a storyline. According to Yovanna, she went along with NeNe’s scheme because it was a way for her to finally become a full-time Housewife and not just ‘that b*tch’ from Clark Atlanta.
As we saw all season, Yovanna — who NeNe introduced to the group last season — got more camera time this season having one-on-one chats with Cynthia, Eva, and a few of the other ladies. All of Yovanna conversations revolved around the non-existent audio.
Prior to the reunion, NeNe caught wind that Yovanna was invited to the reunion and sent Yovanna a Cease and Desist letter in an attempt to stop her from speaking on the truth. It wasn’t long ago that NeNe sent Porsha Williams a Cease and Desist letter after their public Instagram falling-out. A few years ago, NeNe also sent Kenya Moore a Cease and Desist letter…on her birthday. That seems to be her thing.
You already know how we feel about Cease and Desist letters…
According to our sources, NeNe was so upset that Yovanna was allowed to appear at the reunion and threatened production.
Porsha and NeNe are back to being ‘Big Sister, Little Sister’ and came into the reunion very clearly on the same page. Whenever arguments broke out, the dynamic seemed to be very much ‘NeNe & Porsha’ vs ‘Kenya, Eva Marcille, and Kandi Burruss.’
NeNe and Kandi got into it over a few things, but during their main argument it was revealed that NeNe basically hired Lisa Bloom to put legal pressure on Bravo. That explains why NeNe has suddenly taken issue with Kandi’s spin-offs. NeNe told Kandi that she would be getting some kind of legal paperwork also.
Of course, NeNe and Kenya got into it. NeNe went in on Kenya’s marriage to Marc Daly — but that was to be expected. Kenya hit back with allegations of NeNe Leakes’ secret boyfriend, a man named Rodney, who lives in DC.
Sources have previously told lovebscott.com that NeNe is, in fact, dating a man named Rodney who lives in DC and works for the USDA. We hear they spend time together whenever NeNe’s in Maryland “checking up” on her Swagg Boutique at the MGM National Harbor…but we digress.
Eva the Diva has finally arrived! According to our sources, the Eva we got glimpses of throughout the season came in guns blazing and ready to secure her peach for next season.
Eva read NeNe down to the ground and laid everything out with Porsha. We’re told that off camera, Porsha took issue with Eva saying that baby PJ looks like Dennis McKinley and felt she was trying to call baby PJ ugly.
Since NeNe had issues with everyone, we’re told she left the virtual set “several times” and eventually just didn’t come back. It’s unclear if they’ll edit her throughout both reunion episodes, but she was not present for the end of the taping.
As for Cynthia Bailey, we’re told she “rode the fence” as always.
Tanya Sam appeared and got into a short back and forth with Kenya Moore, but Tanya isn’t really one to argue so it fizzled.
Marlo Hampton also made an appearance, but it was difficult to understand her. We’re not sure if that’s because of her speech or a weak wifi connection — probably a combination of both.
It should also be noted that both NeNe and Marlo made a stop through Titty City on the way to the reunion because both ladies had their girls out and almost on full display of the camera. That reminds us of earlier this season when NeNe arrived to a scene with her whole breast out.
We don’t know for certain who’s returning next season, but from this reunion it looks like Cynthia may be on her way out and Eva will be sticking around.
Be sure to tune in to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reunion airing next Sunday at 8pm on Bravo.
