The Real Housewives of Atlanta

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.
I do dearly miss Cynthia and think she would help with the dynamics. That said, I would watch any lineup that includes a combination of Kandi, Kenya or Sheree. They are just icons to me.

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.
