The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 17 saw things fall apart as NeNe assembled a ladies therapy session that only made things worse.
It wasn't long before someone stormed off. Who was it, and why did she bolt?
From the onset of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 17, tensions were already rising, and NeNe decided to do something about it.
Sadly, what she decided to do appeared to do more harm than good.
NeNe noted that relations with Kenya Moore, Claudia Jordan, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams are “the worst they’ve ever been.”
Ya think?? Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia, Kandi and Porsha show up to the group therapy session, but Phaedra feels she doesn't need these "dark hearts."
Phaedra and Kandi were able to end their beef, which stemmed from Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore going at it and Kandi sitting idly doing nothing.
The two came to an understanding outside of the group session, where the accusations and insults flew left and right and things just got way worse.
Well played, as it turned out, by Phaedra Parks, to miss that one.
While NeNe promised to keep an open mind going in, Leakes' actions indicated quite the opposite, as she repeatedly came off defensive and thin-skinned.
Every issue that came up, she had a rebuttal for that only threw gasoline on these simmering fires. Is she really a peacemaker or the main instigator?
For instance, if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you know NeNe and Kenya have never gotten along very well on the program.
Moore asks why this is. NeNe says they will “never be friends.”
Yeah. Not exactly extending an olive branch right there, NeNe.
When Claudia Jordan and NeNe Leakes rehashed their first meeting, which ended in a pretty epic fight, the latter told her to “get that s--t together.”
Kandi notes that NeNe makes her "original" housewife status known, like she's marking her territory or staking a claim to something that doesn't matter.
Cynthia Bailey reflected on her ongoing feud with NeNe, and noted that “once the rift started, NeNe went above and beyond to destroy the friendship.”
NeNe responded by hammering back, “You’re are not a victim!”
Leakes storms out of the session in frustration and rage.
"This must be Attack NeNe Day,” she says.
“Those people are very wrong.”
Are they, though?
