I’m enjoying this season because I feel even a bad ATL season is better than most “good” seasons of other HWs shows. I feel the biggest issue is that the show was so ahead of the pack for so long, that the slightest misstep feels fatal.
I even feel like the “bad” HWs has value. Right now I feel the main cast plus Courtney is good, but something is missing. A Nene or Porsha is needed to tie it together. There feels like there isn’t a proper lead. Marlo is doing her best to keep things interesting but they don’t take her seriously so it doesn’t work. Same for Courtney who I think is fabulous.
They need a newbie who can truly get Kenya and Kandi activated.
I hope the ratings turn around though because it’s sad seeing ATL like this. Rumors have it that even Peacock/delayed numbers are low.
Marlo's habit of cursing someone out or being rude af to then call someone "beautiful" to punctuate as if it negates her preceding words... just a mean, bitter, unhappy person. She's run her course; she can gallop out of the lineup STAT.
Honestly, after this season ends they need to completely clear house and keep only Kandi and Kenya. Sanya is a dud, Marlo has zero storyline and is now getting violent with Monyetta, Drew is done after this divorce storyline.
Sheree could *MAYBE* stay but I’d only keep if her if they got Kim back in order to exploit that storyline.
