The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are always ready for a shade battle.
Whether it be the outspoken NeNe Leakes, witty Kenya Moore or silently sassy Cynthia Bailey, the cast members typically never back down from a diss. And after seven seasons on TV, the housewives of the past and present have created quite the archive of memorable lines.
Click though for the RHOA‘s best disses and catchphrases of all time…
“I’m Gone With the Wind fabulous!” – Kenya Moore
Moore reached her breaking point during a drama filled trip to Anguilla with the ladies. She was mainly frustrated with Porsha Williams. But that didn’t keep her from schooling all the ladies on the level of fabulousness she occupies.
Beyoncé later used it to describe her epic Super Bowl performance. So kudos, Kenya! If Bey cosigns, then you must indeed be that fab!
“Close your legs to married men, hooker!” – NeNe Leakes
During her five seasons on RHOA, Kim Zolciak had quite the rocky relationship with Leakes.
They initially started off as friends during the show’s first season. But by the time they had reached the Season 1 reunion show, Zolciak and Leakes were on the outs.
Thus you can understand why Leakes took this biting dig at her former bestie, who happened to be involved with a man who was married. Zolciak said her fella was getting a divorce. But Leakes obviously wasn’t convinced!
“A fashion show with no fashions…” - Dwight Eubanks
We have to admit, Dwight Eubanks was spot on when he called out Whitfield for her struggle fashion show back during Season 1. She failed to have any of her samples completed by the night of the event. And ended up showing not a single outfit.
Dwight described the event as “dreadful.”
We second that motion!
“I’m very rich, b***h!” – NeNe Leakes
Leakes went into Season 4 with just a few more coins than she had the previous season — thanks partly to the “Trump Check” she got from being on Celebrity Apprentince. And she made it a point to let everyone know it!
During an argument with Whitfield, Leakes fired off this beloved line. She then went on to stick Whitfield with an additional burn.“While you were running your mouth with [Tyrone Gilliams], I was running to the bank, Sweetie!” she said.
“Bough-ghetto” – Kandi Burruss
Burruss coined this hilarious word during Phaedra Parks’ baby shower for her and Apollo Nida’s first son Ayden. It combines the words “bougie” and “ghetto.” And Burruss felt it perfectly described the dramatic event Parks put on for her first baby.
"Don't be tardy for the party!” - Kim Zolciak
This was the name of Zolciak’s flop single, written by Burruss. It also marked the reality star's most memorable line during her time on the show.
“I said what I said!” - NeNe Leakes
The RHOA Season 6 reunion show was a shade fest like none other.
While arguing with Burruss during a heated moment, Leakes stubbornly stood by a comment she made. And she aggressively reminded Burruss that she remembered exactly what she stated!
Burruss came back with a biting shut down of her own, though. “And what you said was bull****!” she exclaimed.
“The moose has spoken!” - Kenya Moore
Moore is the queen of comebacks! And when Leakes decided to speak over her during the Season 6 reunion show, she likened her castmate’s interjection to the sound of a not-so-appealing woodland animal.
“Bloop!” - NeNe Leakes
For a couple of seasons, Leakes would end her comments or chats with an amusing “bloop!” The sound mimicked the beep heard on a phone’s voicemail, and usually marked when she’d officially checked out of a conversation.
“Chateau Shereè” – NeNe Leakes
During the Season 4 reuinon show, Leakes took a dig at Whitfield’s “in progress” mansion, renaming the project “Chateau Shereè.”
After overcoming some financial setbacks, the project is finally close to completion. But the home will never live down the catchy title it received from Leakes so many seasons ago.
