Can you believe ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has just reached their 100th episode?! The girls of ‘RHOA’ sat down with Andy Cohen to celebrate the milestone by recapping the best and worse moments in the show’s history!
Yes, it’s true. We’ve all been with NeNe Leakes, 47, for 100 episodes of some fun, and not so fun, times! In the 100th episode special, NeNe was joined by a few other past and present cast members to take a trip down memory lane. Topics of discussion included fashion, fights and relationships — and we enjoyed every minute of it! We have the full recap below!
Kicking off the special episode, Nene said to Andy, “I had no idea this little bitty bit show would be this big and this popular,” before they showed her 2007 casting tape — OMG, it was SO funny! She looked so different, her hair, her makeup, everything was so different!
One of the most epic Season One reunion moments was when NeNe told Kim Zolciak to “Close her legs to married men” and things went OFF. Kim told Andy in the 100th anniversary episode that it took her “days to get over.” Kandi also talked about Kim’s singing career and it was priceless. “I always go for the underdog,” Kandi explained to Andy LOL. They went on to talk about how their business relation is what ended up killing their relationship — womp womp.
Then, Andy brought up the topic of sex and how open all the ladies are about the subject on the show…except for NeNe…..even though she used to be an exotic dancer….On to the next subject…hair! Andy asked the girls who they think has the best hair and everyone’s answers differed BUT when it came time to cast their votes for the worst hair, it was unanimous…wait for it…NENE (obviously)!
Time to talk about relationships! Obviously they had to ask Phaedra about Apollo. “The show can bring out the worst in people,” she explained and boy is that right! Apollo did go a bit crazy at the end there. Porsha talked about Kordell divorcing her and how she found out on Twitter — yikes, remember that?! Andy also brought up when Cynthia’s mom and sister hid her marriage certificate to prevent her from marrying Peter — that was one of the most dramatic moments on the show! Cynthia said that after Peter saw that on TV, it took him a long time to get over.
Here are some phrases that the girls said were used too much on the show — “close your legs to married men, gone with the wind fabulous, don’t come for me unless I send for you, trashy hooker, and NeNe’s favorite, bloop bloop bloop.” So funny and true!
Andy saved the best topic for last, famous fights on the show! Remember that blowout between Kim, Nene, and Sheree where Sheree pulled on Kim’s weave?! So intense! “Who does that?!” Kim said to Andy. Another epic fight happened between Cynthia and NeNe when NeNe called Cynthia’s husband a “bitch” and all hell broke loose. That was the end of their friendship. “I am not going to pick my friends over my husband,” Cynthia explained to Andy.
Oh and we can’t forget that pillow talk fight! Kenya started charging towards Natalie Williams and everything “went out of control at that point,” Kandi explained. It was hard to re-watch (but like also so entertaining.). And the award for the most epic fight in the history of RHOA goes to…..the physical blow out between Kenya and Porsha during season 6 reunion! Porsha was so fed up with Kenya that she got up from the couch and literally dragged Kenya to the ground — it was SO intense!
