If there’s one thing we’ve learned from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, it’s to never be tardy for the party. 

But since our dear departed Kim Zolciak wasn’t there to school them on the finer points of dinner decorum, the remaining ladies broke the show’s cardinal rule and arrived three hours after dear NeNe Leakes’s fancy Hollywood shindig began.

Talk about unfashionably late...

So, what was the deal why did the other ladies arrive eons after the party started?

Well, the real culprit apparently isn’t the ladies, but the airlines. According to Kandi Burruss’s recent tweet, they were all waiting on Phaedra Parks, whose flight into Los Angeles was delayed. While that may be a legitimate excuse, it certainly wasn’t enough to persuade NeNe to grant them passage into her exclusive event. 

Next time, book an earlier flight ladies! 

Do you think NeNe had a right to be angry? Vote below!
