'Real Housewives of Atlanta': Why is show not airing this week? Here's when it returns with the next episode?
When the show returns from its holiday break, be prepared to watch some explosive drama go down between Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams
Things were just beginning to heat up on Bravo's 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams, but unfortunately, we will have to wait for another week to watch how things pan out between Kenya and the other housewives. Kenya's shady comments haven't always been appreciated by her fellow housewives, especially Porsha. Although the duo joined the hit reality show at the same time, they barely ever got along and engaged in some intense fights (remember the reunion when Porsha dragged Kenya by her hair across the floor?). Another housewife that Kenya seemed to rub off the wrong way was Cynthia Bailey.
However, ever since Cynthia and former housewife NeNe Leakes had a fallout, the housewife began getting closer to Kenya and their friendship blossomed much to the dismay of fans. In the upcoming episode of 'RHOA' we will get to see how these friendships play out. The fourth episode of 'RHOA' which was scheduled to be aired on December 27, has been pushed to January 3, due to the holiday break.
Although the upcoming episode is yet to air, the preview clip released by the network has already managed to ruffle quite some feathers. In the clip, we see Kenya unwittingly questioning Porsha's arrest during the BLM protests and openly wondering if Porsha and the other protesters were "putting themselves in the position to be arrested". While fans have slammed Kenya for her ignorant and insensitive comment, looks like neither Porsha nor her sister, Lauren Williams seem to be pleased with the former beauty queen's scathing statement.
In the preview clip, we see Cynthia calling up Kenya and informing her that it might be in everybody's best interests if she doesn't attend the event being hosted by her, as even Lauren was uncomfortable with the idea of Porsha and her being in the same room. Kenya can be seen getting visibly upset and questioning the producers and cameramen if they knew about it. She then storms out from the room saying someone's going to pay for her hair and makeup, which she seems to have gotten done for the event. The clip also gives us a peek into a heated discussion between Cynthia and Kenya over something. Cynthia can be seen asking her friend to zip her mouth and just listen to her and support her while's she's expressing her thoughts and feelings. Unfortunately, the reason behind their argument isn't shown, so we might have to just watch the episode to know more about the duo's fight.
Aside from plenty of drama and fights onscreen, Porsha took to her Instagram to call out Kenya for her ignorant statement about BLM protests. The housewife posted a screenshot of a comment by Tamika D Mallory, who cleared the air about how Porsha was roped into the protests and the events that led to her arrest. The housewife captioned her post, "It really is sad that this had to be addressed. Thank you @tamikadmallory my leader and my sister in the struggle for all you do first and for most! However, I will say this I am on Rhoa and most of the show is for entertainment but when it comes to BLM let me be clear I will not be Reading anyone, I will not be shading anyone, I will not stoop down and give weight nor battle the topic of BLM with a fellow black woman on TV!
"I take it very serious (sic) so all I will say is Kenya I will pray for you over the holidays and maybe even I can be a beacon of light in your dark heart when it comes to anything Porsha related or maybe I can enlighten you on the act of *Civil disobedience. I truly hope that in next week episode you are not questioning nor belittling the efforts of the very brave women and men all over the world who stood up and said No justice No peace and have to fight because innocent black men and women are being killed! I know we can do better than this. Let’s stay focused !!! VOTE VOTE VOTE ✊🏾💙 #Louisville87 #GoodTrouble," added the housewife.
'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 13 airs every Sunday at 8/7c only on Bravo.
