The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are heading to Spain! Well… some of them, that is.
On Sunday’s all new episode of the hit Bravo show, the Atlanta Housewives hopped a flight to Barcelona for this season’s big girls trip — though not all of ATL’s best made it to the tarmac for takeoff.
Longtime rivals Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak-Biermann skipped the getaway, for very different reasons that left costars NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Shereé Whitfield and Porsha Williams polarized.
For Moore, her insistence on avoiding drama and conflict in the wake of her marriage to husband Marc Daly was a real driving force.
“I passed on Barcelona because I have been on two trips already with these ladies and each have had negative components,” the 47-year-old former Miss U.S.A. explained, recalling visits in San Francisco and Houston earlier this season that exploded in questions about her relationship and criticisms of her attitude.
“My priority is my family,” Moore continued.
Bailey, a BFF of Moore’s, appeared to understand. “Kenya’s at a point in her life where she just got married, she’s happy,” the supermodel, 50, told audiences. “So if I can’t get Kenya to allow me to meet her husband in the United States, how in the hell am I supposed to convince her to come to Barcelona if she doesn’t want to go.”

Perhaps that’s because Zolciak-Biermann has been difficult about traveling on group trips in the past during RHOA‘s first five seasons.
