No, I haven't been watching. As everyone knows, my favorite BH housewife was Brandi, and obviously she's gone. I also loved Kim, and she's gone too. I can't stand Kyle, to the point that even when I was watching, she almost made me not want to. As much as I loved LVP seasons 1-3, I've found her increasingly disgusting since season 4. Lisa Rinna is someone I always liked, but last season made me dislike her. Eileen I love as an actress and liked well enough on the show, but not enough to make me watch. Yolanda I have always liked and, while I do believe she is sick, I don't necessarily want to watch another season where that's all we talk about. Also, I find it disgusting to question someone's illness, and that appears to be what the main storyline is this season. I don't care what it "looks like" or even if Yolanda is delusional, she's obviously ill with something and I think it's extremely tacky to center a show around screaming at a sick person that they're not sick.
So, there's not really much reason for me to watch, lol.
If we're just throwing nominations to anyone, I would've at least liked to see Jackie Zeman pre-nom'd in supporting for the Spencer storyline. Say what you want about the current state of her acting ability, but there were episodes during that storyline where she outacted many of the people who are somehow on this list.
It appears the tides have turned against Kenya pretty badly, at least for now. Cynthia deleted all of the posts about Kenya's birthday apparently. Nene/Kenya seem to be beefing again. Kim has beef with her. Phaedra and Porsha openly dislike her anyway so odds are they'll work their way into the beef somehow, even if it's just defending others. The only person who might defend her is Kandi. We'll have to see how the rest of the season goes, but from what I've heard, Kenya is involved in a lot of drama as the season progresses.
No, I don't think I've ever said that a season was her downfall. Season 5, obviously was her introduction. But seasons 6/7 were anything but her downfall - they were the years spent shamelessly hyping her as the second coming (for no reason), as she set herself UP for her downfall. Thankfully, it appears now that the time has come.
I don't doubt that she'll recover, though - The thing about Kenya is that she is DESPERATE to stay on this show, so she will change everything about herself, her screen presence, her mannerisms, her demeanor, in order to stay relevant and keep her job. As many personalities as we have seen from Kenya, not one of them has been completely her. So, as she is roasted over the coals this reunion, she will come back next year acting "changed", but still being the same [!@#$%^&*] stirring liar, and she will maintain her spot on the show. It doesn't hurt that she is so largely hated already - she doesn't have to worry about an eroding fan base. The difference between Kenya and other housewives who have had "downfalls" is that she will change her entire persona to stay relevant, where as when fans grew tired of other housewives personalities, they continued to be themselves because they're not going to leave all dignity at the door for the show. So Kenya may overcome her downfall - but it's nothing to be proud of.
Also - I realized my initial post came off a bit more passive aggressive than I intended it to, Brandon! I didn't mean to imply that you were shading me in a negative way, just that I caught your shade and that I was giving you the whole tree in return.
I'm so excited that it appears this season is going to be the downfall of Kenya.
Also, Brandon, to address that shade you tossed in my direction earlier, I certainly can (and have) admitted when my faves are wrong (Nene, Brandi, etc.), however, y'all are so determined to see them as the antichrist that you don't see me do so.
