I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta October 19, 2010
Where the hell does Bravo find these women? Phaedra Parks is the most closed minded, sheltered, idiotic woman Housewives has ever showcased. This woman who can’t pronounce foie gras announces that her husband doesn’t appreciate fine foods prepared by a chef, he prefers canned and packaged foods because he was brought up in a “white household”. WHAT? Maybe rather than blaming the man’s mother consider the foods served in PRISON, could that be the reason he doesn’t have quite a refined palate? I’ve heard that they serve canned and packaged foods in jail.
What is wrong with this woman? Twitter went wild again with nasty tweets to Phaedra Parks for her racist comments. According to Parks black mothers are more strict then white mothers, she also tried to convince her husband that an old fashioned beating is what her child needs. What kind of woman is carrying a baby and talks about beating it before it’s even born? If this is how Southern Bell’s think, I’m glad I don’t know any. Phaedra tweeted one remark in her defense, which certainly didn’t help her case…
@PhaedraParks: I was referring to MY husband’s family NOT all white ppl. As far as discipline, black moms are usually a lot stricter
Another generalization showing just how closed minded she is. I wonder how she came to this conclusion? Do you suppose this is her personal experience? Wait, no it can’t be because I doubt she was raised with both a black and white mother most of us have just the one mother.
The ex-con, Apollo has a whole lot more sense than his wife. That says it all about this crazy woman! He talks about spending quality time with his wife while his wife talks about receiving gifts and tries to convince her husband to talk to her personal shoppers and stylist to find out what his wife would like as a gift.
NeNe is the voice of reason, what does that tell you?
I truly feel bad for her child if she plans to raise her child with her ideas and values.
The good news is that it sounds like Phaedra is the career-driven working mom and Apollo will be the stay-at-home dad so hopefully their 4-month old child isn’t getting beaten by Phaedra too often. Last week Stacie Turner of DC Housewives caused a S**t-storm on Twitter, this week it was Phaedra’s turn:
TO: PhaedraParks, you shade your husband too much. Stop emasculating the man.
TO: @PhaedraParks Thanks for setting us back 50 years!! Plz don’t say you were only talking about your husbands family. Your words were taped.
TO: @PhaedraParks is the most appalling thing i have ever heard im sure your gonna get a lot of flax over this from all sides
TO: PhaedraParks Get your head out if your ass, you sound like an imbecile…look it up
TO: PhaedraParks what do you know about growing up in a white household, and black vs white moms whos stricter. speak what you know about
TO: @PhaedraParks you clearly stated white household, are you racist?
Man if @phaedraparks is a southern bell then ship me to another country PLEASE!” « Lmao!” I concur!
Yeah that comment did not help @phaedraparks plight. I cant imagine her husbands family being happy. WOW!!
TO: @PhaedraParks And then bitch if u state ONE MORE F***** TIME that your a southern bell im coming to ATL to kick your ass
We’ll see how fast @PhaedraParks pops open a can of sketti-o’s when that baby is abt 5 & starts showing his 1/4 white side being seen & heard backtalkin when the nanny calls in sick & Apollo is off somewhere spending her $ & she don’t wanna cook.
Many on Twitter also predicted the demise of this marriage, if you recall last week Phaedra informed us that her husband loves her because he signed a pre-nuptial agreement. I predict that she’ll continue to work her butt off, make lots of money and her husband will spend it all!
Phaedra tells us that she knew her husband before he went to prison and that he was incarcerated for a white collar crime, racketeering, just like Martha Stewart. Well, he was put in jail, but not exactly like Martha…

From Phaedra’s Blog:
Like many women, my love language is gifts. I love giving them as much as I enjoy receiving them. My husband’s love language is quality time which usually involves Sunday football
Phaedra, Who are these “many women”? Friends of yours? Funny she never mentioned on the show “giving” gifts, only receiving. Way to throw your husband under the bus, Sunday football? Perhaps the many Twitterer’s had something when predicting the end of this marriage.
On to NeNe, she had the obligatory dog crap scene, that’s what you get for being friends with Jill Zarin! Lets hope Celebrity Apprentice has a dog crap cleaning task, NeNe will win with flying colors! If you’re in NYC today, the cast of Celebrity Apprentice will be out on the streets selling Pizza, buy a pizza from your favorite!
NeNe had a conversation with her youngest son, Brentt to try to explain what is happening with her oldest son Brice. I thought she did a really good job of explaining the situation and encouraging Brentt not to follow the same path. Say what you will about NeNe Leakes, but she loves her children.
We were introduced for the first time in this episode to Sheree’s grown daughter, Tierra who has recently moved back to Atlanta with her boyfriend after graduating college. We are truly seeing a whole new side of Sheree this season, softer and sweeter, but we agree, Sheree, you’re not ready to be a grandmother!
Sheree confronted Dwight about his claim of spending $30,000 on her She By Sheree fashion show that we witnessed last season. While Dwight tried to itemize $30k of expenses he could come up with only $1,200 he paid to the seamstress and apparently some of the most expensive copies that Kinko’s has to offer. Sheree seemed to feel better after confronting Dwight.
Dwight has his very own blog on BravoTV.com for the first time since he’s appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you can read his drivel here:
Dwight admits that he told Kim that Gregg Leakes asked to borrow $10,000 from him, but doesn’t clear up whether or not he told Kim that he only lent Gregg $500. I love the way Dwight defends himself by saying that he never told NeNe about his “gentlemen’s agreement” with Gregg but Dwight never explained why he felt it was ok to tell Kim Zolciak about it. Gossip much?
I would be completely happy if we never saw Dwight again, but then which housewife would Phaedra talk to? Dwight may be heard from again if only to allow Phaedra to talk about the ladies with someone who knows them. NeNe has already informed us that she and Phaedra were not childhood chums as Phaedra tried to make us believe.
I think I’m really going to like Cynthia, with the exception of her calling herself a “supermodel”, I can get over that. She seems like a nice person and her interaction with her sister was sweet and funny. We got a bit of insight into Cynthia’s thoughts about marrying her 3-year long boyfriend, Peter. It seems her issues with marriage are two-fold, being that she’s been engaged a few times before but never made it down the aisle, she clearly has some commitment fears. I have to agree with her though when it comes to Peter’s ultimatum as opposed to a proposal.
Peter, instead of telling your lady that you insist on getting married because you’re turning 50, why not get down on your knee with a ring and ask her if she’s willing to marry you? Just a thought.
This episode made it impossible to see my favorite Kandi without having to watch the horrible Kim Zolciak! I don’t know what Kandi gets out of her friendship with Kim, in Kim I see only a selfish, horrible bitch who uses Kandi for whatever she can get but gives nothing back. Kim probably could have pulled off that show at the White Party without Kandi, but it was clear to me that Kim got a lot more out of Kandi’s presence than Kandi did. The professionalism and enthusiasm that Kandi brought to the show was priceless and something that Kim Zolciak didn’t even seem to appreciate. Yes, she did thank her but Kim never seems sincere to me.
I’m not even sure I understand why this woman was invited to perform at this weekend long party, the one-hit-wonder has little to offer this crowd. She did make a complete fool of herself, as the sex-starved Zolciak was shown hitting on several different gay men.
Kandi felt the need to be apologetic in her blog regarding her attitude toward Kim during this show, personally, I would much rather see Kim apologize for being late and making her wait for you and for turning Kandi into her back-up singer. Kandi is clearly a performer while Kim is a bad actress who is playing at singing. Not to mention, Kandi can sing, Kim cannot!
Kim’s costume issues were really getting old, she took forever to choose that outfit knowing her boobs were falling out of it, then no one in that room predicted that the wind may be an issue in an outdoor venue?
Kim, once again, shows her ignorance and stupidity by not knowing what a wind turbine is, Bravo seems to want to drive that point home. Note to Bravo, we know that Kim’s an idiot, no need to prove it anymore.
Was anyone else tempted to jump through their television and pull a Phaedra on Kim and beat her when she told her assistant Sweetie to shut up for the fourth time during this episode? What grown woman tells people to “shut up”? That is the height of ignorance!
One last comment about Kim Zolciak, we have learned through the grapevine that some of the housewives smoke cigarettes, (Luann for one) but we don’t need to see it. Kim can’t avoid smoking on camera the way that Luann does? It is an unfortunate fact that Kim has young fans who could possibly be influenced by her, keep the smokes off screen!
The Atlanta Housewives are bringing it this season, I can’t wait to watch what happens…
Bravo is re-running episodes of Millionaire Matchmaker all day today with the season premier tonight at 10pm – 9pm central. I will not be watching and there will be no blog of this horrible woman’s show here. I know you’ll all be disappointed but that’s the way it has to be.
Alternatives to this garbage that Bravo is shoving down our throats, CBS has The Good Wife, ABC has Detroit 1-8-7 and NBC has Parenthood, all of which I would recommend over Bravo’s offering. But then again, I would recommend watching grass grow or paint dry over watching Patti Stanger abuse grown men and women.
Until Next Time….
