When does the reunion air?

The RHOA Season 12 reunion specials were divided into three parts with the premiere on Sunday, May 10. Us Weekly got a sneak peek as to what topics each of the episodes would cover and fans are in for a wild ride.

For Part 1, Nene Leakes will talk about her apology tour that started off the season. The OG of the ATL ended things badly with her co-stars and tried to make amends with them throughout season 12. Kenya Moore will also give an update on the status of her relationship with Marc Daly. Friends of the Housewives, Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam, will also drop by to talk about their experience during the season.

Part 2 of the reunion will air on Sunday, May 17, and will revolve around Eva Marcille and Porsha Williams falling out. Both will have a heated moment that will make fans cringe. Moore will also chime in on how her friendship with Williams fell out. Leakes gets so worked up and she goes missing making everyone question if she will return for the last part of the reunion.

Part 3, the last installment of the reunion, is set to air on Sunday, May 24. In this episode, Cynthia Bailey and Moore will talk about their friendship. The Cookie Lady drama will also come up and Yovanna Momplaisir will bring up an uncomfortable subject.

The RHOA reunion will begin on Sunday, May 10 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.

Kandi Burruss teases drama

After the production of season 12 wrapped, Leakes and Kandi Burruss have been involved in drama on social media. Ahead of the reunion, the Grammy-award winner shared a behind-the-scenes video on her thoughts.

“Me and Nene have been having some words,” Burruss says. “I already know ain’t never really rock, rock with each other since the beginning.”

“I don’t really know what to think about today,” she continued. “I don’t really know if [Nene] is going to be coming at me thinking she’s going to talk crazy to me to these people or if she’s going to try to come like she got some sense.”

Why didn’t they wait to film the reunion?

Many fans were not happy that the ladies of RHOA would not be actually reuniting in person. When Bravo host Andy Cohen confirmed that they would record the reunion with everyone remotely, there was a viewer backlash. However, the TV personality explained that the health of the cast and crew as their top concern.

“We want to be in the same room, but we cannot risk the health and safety of the Housewives or the incredible crew in Georgia,” Cohen said on his SiriusXM show. “[RHOA] is regarded by many as the Super Bowl of reunion shows, and it is truly one of my favorite reunions to shoot, I look forward to it, and the fact of the matter is it’s either we do it this way or there’s no Super Bowl this year.”

Fans also suggested the production wait until the restrictions had been lifted but there was a reason for them to want to wrap up season 12 for good.

“If we wait for this pandemic to be over for when we all are in the same room, it’s gonna delay everything,” Cohen added. “We need to move forward, we need to live in reality right now, and the reality is if we’re going to do this, we’re going to do this right now.”
