While the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta season six know how to bring the drama, no one brings it better than the original cast members of the show, including Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield. Both ladies visited with Andy Cohen last night for Watch What Happens Live, and they were asked about their opinions of the new cast, their thoughts on Kenya and the way NeNe walks all over the girls, and what they miss about being a Real Housewife. Here’s the tea we found most interesting:
What Sheree Misses About Being On The Show:
“We had our ups and downs, but when we were good, we were good. I miss the camaraderie with the girls.”
What Made The First Season So Much Better Than All The Rest
Kim: “It was real. We were really mad or we were really happy or we were really having a good time. It wasn’t the blogs creating it. These were issues we were really going through. I think people can really sense that or feel that throughout the years.”
Kim on Kenya:
“You gotta earn your keep somehow. Just saying.
I had lunch with her during season five. Listen, I do not, not like her, I just don’t know her well enough. We talked about marriage and babies and she was like, ‘I need to have a woman cave to be away from my husband and the babies’ and I was like, ‘You don’t need to have a husband and baby then if you want to have like a woman cave.’ I was just a little confused by that. But honestly, I don’t have anything against her and she’s always been nice to me.”
Kim On Porsha And Her Rumored Relationships:
“I just said she had to create some sort of controversy because her song’s coming out. She has nothing else going on.”
Sheree And Kim On Challenging NeNe While The New Cast Won’t
Sheree: “I’ve only caught a few episodes. The few episodes I did catch I thought it was kind of bad. I thought it was not good that these women are kind of just letting her talk to them any kind of way. I did not appreciate that. I did not like that.
NeNe kind of knows who to challenge. I did watch the episode with Marlo and I know she talked about a NeNe and a NayNay, but I guess NayNay was out of town that day…”
Kim: “I mean, I think because we do have history with NeNe, we tend to challenge. And she tends to get us madder than most normal people maybe, and that’s kind of what it was. Because we do know her. She kind of gets me to here [raises hand] sometimes.”
Who They Would Hang With In The New Cast:
Kim: “The current cast? NeNe and I have spent quite a bit of time working out some of our issues so we’re in a really good place than we have been. Cynthia’s always been pretty sweet. As for the rest? Bye…”
What Happened To She By Sheree?
“I have some jewelry. But I also have some T-shirts that are still selling. But right now I’m working on a fitness DVD. I actually just taped it a week ago and I’m really excited about it.”
One very interesting moment occurred when NeNe Leakes called in to chat with the girls. While things haven’t been solid as a rock when it comes to a friendship with Sheree, NeNe and Kim are on good terms again. When Andy asked NeNe what she missed about filming with these ladies, this is what NeNe had to say:
“I’ve been very public when I do the interviews and people ask me, do I ever miss the old girls on the show? I always say the same thing and I’ll say it again. Yes I miss them being on the show. We had a rollercoaster ride, but at the same time, it meant something. We started this together. We are the original girls. So yes, I miss having to fight with them every now and then.”
