‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ season 8, episode 7 review: Kenya Moore takes a stand against Glen


It is unusual that almost an entire episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” revolves around a single story, but that is what we had for the most part with Sunday’s installment unspooling following the altercation between Glen Rice Jr. and his aunt Tammy, something that was really rather ugly to watch and it further raises the question as to whether or not the producers and crew should take more responsibility in protecting these people.

Let’s take a minute here to remember the battle in the past between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams, or the really-violent sleepover altercation that happened a while back between some of the men. We understand that this stuff makes “good TV” to some people, but we don’t want to see people get hospitalized. The crazy thing here to us is that Glen is a pro basketball player, someone who really should know about how to behave in front of the media already. Why he would behave like this and shove his own aunt in front of cameras is an utter mystery.

Moving forward beyond the conflict, the question on the minds of many, both in Miami and beyond, was whether or not Kenya Moore did the right thing in stepping into the conflict. That is a question better saved for the comments, but obviously there were different opinions between Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, and Kim Fields who argued about it with Kenya about it back in Atlanta.

We suppose there were some happier moments for some of the wives, as Porsha bonded more with Oliver and Kim and Kenya bonded, but the shadow of the Glen incident clouds the rest of the episode. These are the conflicts that year after year, we hope that the franchise will do something to avoid. Yet, they never do and we end up discussing them once more. Grade: D.
