I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Preview

I Hate Jill Zarin    Real Housewives of Atlanta Preview     Nov 1, 2010

Why would a network take their top rated series mid season
and move them to a different night?  Top Networks will do that occasionally if they’re trying to find an audience for a failing show and we know that typically Thursday nights have been reserved as
“Housewives Night” over at Bravo.  Now that The Real Housewives of DC has concluded it may have made some sense to put the  Atlanta Housewives in the 10pm Thursday night slot.  Networks put some of their highest rated shows on Thursdays because that’s where the ad dollars are the biggest.

Somewhere back in the 1950’s Neilson told the networks that
consumers watched Thursday night commercials then got paid on Friday’s and spent all their money on the products they saw on Thursday.  All the highest rated shows were firmly planted on Thursday nights.  Following suit, Bravo put The Real Housewives on Thursday nights and only because they were running two series at the same time did they utilize their Monday nights for a Housewives series.

If Bravo announced that they were moving The Real Housewives
of Atlanta to Thursday, it would have made some sense but they’re moving RHOA to Sunday, a day that historically Bravo used to re-run old NBC shows like Law and Order or House.  We’ve never seen any original programming on Sunday nights on Bravo.  The competition is too much for our little young Bravo.  I have to assume that the audience for Real Housewives series and shows like Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters is a similar demographic.  Does Bravo think they’ve got a fighting chance  against ABC’s Sunday lineup?  Are they gambling that people will miss their Desperate to watch The Real?

With so many people owning DVR’s and TiVo it is probably not
a really big deal for the viewer, and let’s face it, Bravo re-runs everything so many times that if you miss the original run you will have plenty of other opportunities to catch a re-run but why are they doing this?

Some people on Twitter are speculating that they’re trying to sabotage their number one show:

ATL: Secretly think network wants to kill this show. These new HW’s are not as crazy as others that wanted in.

More tweets from the same source who claims to be a Bravo Insider:

ATL: We did test shoot at socialite’s house that she paid 13 mil for!
Also, had pet leopard. Really fun jet setter with real money. Aww well

ATL: Disappointed they did not show full freak out with Ms.New Nose and her son. He screamed, “So what! I did it, so what!” hilarious.

ATL: Check me boo will find love this season! At least, briefly. 😉 She also will face legal issues about her line (always sign the checks).

ATL: Of course, new nose and lawyer have major run in where nose calls her a “liar, bitch, no good tramp, and boring.” Last one is worst…

Again, please note that this person “claims” to be a Bravo insider.

The Bravo blogs are posted for the Atlanta ladies and Kim wanted to clear something up, <giggle>

TO CLEAR SOMETHING UP: I did NOT say I was, “With Big
Poppa
,” I said, “Big Poppa is back in my life,” meaning we reconnected once again as friends. We weren’t speaking for months prior to that, and I really missed our friendship.

Thanks for clearing that up Kim, I guess you slept in his guest bedroom when you and your daughters spent the weekend at his house swimming and lounging by the pool.  Remember, they’re  JUST friends!

Kim continues to insist that she paid Kandi for her part in Tardy For The Party and while Kandi admits that she received a small dollar amount, she did not get what a typical writer/producer/auto-tune specialist would get for a single that raked in over $100,000.  Kandi explains:

Now on to the money part. I hardly got anything from “Tardy For The Party.” That is the truth. I am not mad about it. I really blame myself, because I didn’t handle my business correctly. The back story is that when we first did the song, I had Vito (the producer that helped me with the music) talk to Kim about how we would get paid. I didn’t want to have that discussion with her because sometimes doing business can make a friendship uncomfortable. We had already signed a publishing split sheet that split the publishing (writer’s royalty) equally between myself, Vito, her daughter, and Ed (the guy who wrote the country version). I totally wrote the version that everyone knows and is for sale all
by myself, but since I took the title “Tardy For The Party” from the
country version Kim originally had, I wanted to be fair and give Kim’s daughter and Ed something. Okay, I hope y’all are  following me.

When Vito talked to Kim the agreement was supposed to be
that we were just going to split all the royalties from the song (not just the publishing royalties) equally. Mind you I wrote it, pulled in the people to get the music done, gave her free studio time,  produced her vocals, etc. with no upfront fee. So I thought, “Cool, we can split the royalties equally, and it’s all good.” I didn’t know if the song was going to make money or not, so I definitely didn’t want to charge her all this money upfront not knowing if she would make any. As a friend I wouldn’t do that. If it’s just business
I don’t care, but it wasn’t just business.

So when the money first came in, Kim gave me a check of a third of the money she had received at that point. Everything was cool, but then she came back to me a week later saying she was all upset because her attorney said she shouldn’t have to pay me on the overall royalties, and that she should just pay me on part of the publishing royalties. She asked me for her money back. It kind of came off like she felt I was taking advantage of her. So it irritated me. Mind you, even though Kim and Vito verbally agreed to splitting all royalties, we never put that in writing. So I just gave her the money back. She gave me a much smaller check that her lawyer said I should receive, and I never got another check. Period. Even though the song has gained more royalties since then, and another dance version was released that I never received a publishing check from.

As a writer you’re supposed to get paid evertyime that song is played on radio and TV. Since I’m on this show, I allowed Real
Housewives of Atlanta to play the song for free so that she could fully benefit off of the song getting played multiple times on our show. She doesn’t have a major label pushing her song to radio, so she doesn’t get the same airplay an artist that is on a major label gets. That’s why I said, “If I would have given this song to another artist, I could have made way more money.”  Meaning I would have gotten royalties off of record sales, licensing fees from TV, radio airplay royalties, and I would have charged them a fee upfront. But it’s ok, I am not mad. I will write many more songs that I can do that on. Kim just went along with what her lawyer said, which is what you should do in most cases. I should’ve put what our agreement was in writing from the beginning so there
wouldn’t be any confusion. This situation in no way makes me have ill feelings towards Kim. The money won’t make or break our bond. I just know going forward we have to treat business as business and friendship as friendship.

I think Kandi may just be the most reasonable of all the Housewives, I doubt too many others would have handled it this way but I have to also give her kudos for explaining it in detail to fans.  Kim just keeps saying that she paid Kandi and based on Kandi’s explanation, she did give her “some” money but not nearly what she should have given her.  Kim really should have ensured that Kandi got her fair share, we all know that song wouldn’t have been recorded at all without Kandi.  As Kandi said, there was nothing in writing and she realizes it was her own fault for not putting anything in writing but Kim should have done the right thing regardless of what her attorney recommended.

Phaedra Parks blog is a waste of space, she goes on about empowering women and her education and even lists women in
history who have made a name for themselves with hard work and tenacity.  Thanks for the history lesson Phaedra, how about explaining your insane baby shower?  Your comments about turning away gift – bearing guests if they’re late for your baby shower?  I really wanted to see Kim turned away, just snatch that gift and send her on her way.  Now that would have made for outstanding television!

Phaedra likes to preach her accomplishments and her well-bred southern upbringing, let’s just see the results, you can say it all day long but actions speak louder than words.  Phaedra is cut from the same cloth as Kelly Bensimon who tells us she’s authentic, real and charitable.  No evidence of that to date.

Reports have surfaced that Sheree’s Doctor friend is not really a doctor, did anyone really ever think that he was a doctor?   Sheree just barely mentions this guy in last week’s blog calling him simply her “blind date” but nothing more.  She most likely already
knew the truth about him before the first episode aired and stopped seeing him months ago.

Sheree is great about tweeting during the episode, she answers a lot of fan tweets and has really become more interesting to people this season.   She was a caricature last season with all of her loving herself and self-indulgent parties for herself, I have a feeling she watched herself last season and did not like what she saw.  She certainly has changed, we’ll still have to monitor her behavior closely.

I really like Cynthia Bailey, she has a great sense of humor and isn’t afraid to say what she thinks.  There is no new-girl syndrome here, her blog of the top  20 hysterical moments of the episode were priceless!  As we know she is going to accept her man’s proposal soon and begin to plan her wedding, hopefully that means more on screen time for this beautiful lady.

NeNe has not posted a blog for last week’s episode as of now, I imagine she’s way too busy filming The Celebrity Apprentice to bother with her blog.  I don’t think we’ll see too many more blogs from NeNe this season.  She did mention that the previous week’s
episode was boring for her, she even fell asleep watching it, do you suppose it was because she only had a few short scenes in that one?

There are two previews posted on Bravotv.com for tonight’s episode, you can view them here:

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/season-3/videos/things-are-not-adding-up

The first one called “Things are not adding up” is hysterical, the comments about Phaedra’s pregnancy and due date are not to be missed!

Bravo is also promoting Kandi’s new album drop so she must be giving up some of the proceeds to the network.  Poor Kandi, she just can’t catch a break!

Andy Cohen will be feeding his ego with an episode of Watch What Happens Live tonight featuring Kandi Burress.

They’ve also posted more time with Lisa and Nate from last week’s episode:

    Someone left an ‘insiders’ take on Tommy and Dina and RHONJ on RCH’s blog. Interesting they added it to a blog dated 9-28-2010… did they want to hide?:

    http://realcityhousewife.wordpress.com/2010/09/28/dina-manzos-big-fat-italian-embarrassment-of-a-wedding-dina-manzo-is-a-bitch-on-twitter/#comment-6303

    • AZ Girl says:

      Wow that was an interesting post.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Sad story and it shows in Dina’s sad eyes.
      The trolls will be all over this soon…..don’t feed them!

      • error404 says:

        how exactly does someone like Dina get fans, and what exactly do they see that’s likable?

        • Sha2000 says:

          Sorry, that post just gives me the feeling that she’s full of baloney. Can’t explain it, it just feels like a lot of it is fake. Maybe it’s the words “broad” & “classy”; showing the author is not too bright, or the claim that she didn’t dress well…the wedding dress was lovely & fashion is subjective. I will agree that the flowers had to be wholesale & she did say her husband cheated on the wedding show. My point I guess is; the poster seems to be wanting to create a story out of nothing. Who is she, how does she “know” them, what is her beef? Seems like another “jumbla reject’, lol.

        • quincyil says:

          They wear blue contacts with blue clothing. Blue is the color most people love.

  2. AZ Girl says:

    O.K. who wants all my leftover Halloween candy? Off to the gym to work off this sugar high.

    • klmh says:

      Oh man, I would LOVE it. But we didn’t have any little ones last night 😦 and I have my own to eat. I gave it to my husband and told him to bring me one a day so I wont eat them all at once, which is why Im so fat.
      I love living in the country, but the only drawback is that little children don’t come for Halloween. I really miss the precious outfits and kiddos…

  3. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Kim does a lot of double talk.

    1. Takes a picture of pregnancy tests but claims it’s a rumor.

    2. She claims, “I’m pretty sure I gave Kandi some checks.” Doesn’t count if you take them back. Nothing good will come your way if you continue being ugly like this.

    3. Big Poppa in your life as a friend doesn’t mean back together? Sssssuuuuuuurrrrrrreeeeeeeee!!!!!!

    • cusi77 says:

      TrueDiva_ If I recall well in last episode with Kim’s parents visiting her, the Mother said about contributing to The Church for the girl first comunion, to tell Big Poppa… BTW I have never heard that to be able to do the First Comunion you have to be contributing to The Catholic Church WITH MONEY for several years… BIG FAT LIE!

      • error404 says:

        most Catholic churches require both attendance and paid dues before they will allow participation in any sacrament.

        Mrs Z seems to think she’s found a church that will wave the attendance requirement if you throw enough money at them. Possible I suppose. Maybe the church needs a new roof.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          money talks! my little parish won’t baptize a baby whose parents aren’t parishioners without a hugh “donation”. The children that aren’t enrolled in the parish school need to do CDC classes for First Communion/Confirmation and if their parents aren’t regular (envelope using) members of the parish – again, a “hugh” donation is “requested”.

      • boston02127 says:

        I had to take classes (CCD) before I could make my First Holy Communion and when I got older I had to go to more classes before I could make Confirmation.

      • Here locally, the parents & god parents have to attend classes in order for a child to be baptized, & then the child has to take CCD in order to take their First Communion & later on, to receive Confirmation.

        • American Idiot says:

          It’s the same way here. I got the impression that Kim’s daughter is in a Catholic school. Kim said that her daughter could not make First Communion with her class because she was never baptized.

          Guess Kim had one daughter baptized, but forgot about the other one.

    • boston02127 says:

      I was totally ignoring the story of Kim being preggers. I AM SHOCKED that she took a pic of her pregnancy test. She’s so trashy.

  4. cusi77 says:

    Good Morning Lynn! Happy All Saints Day to everyone!

    Lynn Dear, you have an Email.

    I have ALL the candies I bought for Halloween… NO kids in my gated community I guess… NOT even one came…

    I almost never have chocolate or candy cravings… I will take my candy to school this morning. Catch with all of you later. Have a nice day!

    • error404 says:

      didn’t buy any as we’re kinda out int eh middle of no where and don’t get trick or treaters. But I will be off to the store later to snatch up the 50% unsold chocolates!

  5. SillyMe says:

    Happy Monday everyone! Urghh I finally saw Project Runway finale last night and can’t believe Gretchen won! Her clothes and taste and talent were CLEARLY inferior to both Andy and Mondo! I’m so sad for both of them, either of them would make a deserving winner! PR is going down after this season I think since Gretchen was one of the most hated cast members! Sorry had to vent! 🙂 Have a great day yall!

    • cusi77 says:

      It is just me or this season of PR did not have much talent than another previous seasons? In my opinion Andy should have won!

    • error404 says:

      project rungay had a great blog on it this morning!
      http://tomandlorenzo2.blogspot.com/2010/11/pr-ripping-collections-mondo.html
      I love that most people during fashion week though that Gretchen’s winning collection was a decoy and not even top 3! LOL

      Last year most people thought Jay would win, but he turned out to be 4th place! The shows been on a downhill run for years now.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      It is amazing the backlash that Project Runway is getting because of Gretchen’s win. If you go on twitter and search Project Runway (or at least last Thursday and Friday) you’ll see how many people are actually quitting the show.

      I just don’t get the judges thinking. Uli and Korto did not win because of their “wearable” items yet Jefferey had “wearable art” and won. Gretchen’s stuff looked like the cheap rayon crap that we used to sell at Carson, Pirie, Scott. You know, the stuff that 50 something’s wear on their cruise vacation ;)…no offense to any 50 something’s that go on cruise vacations.

      • error404 says:

        Like a lot of people, I feel like i”m now done with PR, and I used to be such a solid fan. I wonder how many of us will keep the feeling.

        • RubyNewbie says:

          I’m sick of them too. Not even Tim Gunn (who is wildly likable) can save it. The judges make consistently WTF type decisions. How are the winners faring? It seems like you see more of the losers work than the winners. Michael Kors, who specializes in super wearable clothes, should know better. It also seems like they told him to up the snark factor. Nina is also ruining Marie Claire magazine. That mag used to specialize in wearable clothes, but now it’s all “high fashion” overpriced costumes for idle rich idiots! Boo!

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      Oh, and who would have believed that Jessica Simpson had better taste than Michael Kors???

  6. boston02127 says:

    Great blog, thanks Lynn.

  7. HD says:

    Hey Lynn, excellent blog. I cannot agree more about Phaedra. She has worked my last good nerve. Her blogs are stupid. She wants to appear one way but we see her idiotic behavior every week.

    I am glad to see Kandi explain the money situation because that made me so mad. I guess she is a better person than I am because I would not be singing back up, I would not be writing anymore songs and I certainly would not ask no signing Kim to be on a promotional tour with me. I don’t get it.

    Here is a lot of info on the fake doctor:

    http://bossip.com/294675/gasp-sherees-scripted-doctor-suitor-just-as-fake-as-her-everything12006/

    Here is Kandi’s new video. She looks good and I like that song.

    http://bossip.com/301200/new-kandi-burruss-video-for-leave-u-video69691/

    • error404 says:

      I think a lot of Kandi’s forgiveness is due to her not really needing the money. Or a sense of fairness. She can write another “Tardy” like that (snaps fingers) but Kim probably won’t ever sing another hit again, ever. Maybe Kandi sees it as charity work.

      • HD says:

        She certainly doesn’t need the money but what Kim did concerning the money did not seem fair. Be that as it may, why go along with the charade? Why ask her on a promotional tour? She knows Kim cannot sing so why is she pretending like she can? A tour? Really?

        That whole scene in the studio made me upset because Kim is such a user. She just stops by to mention she “needs” another song? She is such a user. I think she has spent her entire life getting over on people. And then had the nerve to say something like, “don’t write no sh*t”. Ummm hello this is a Grammy Award winning song writer that writes for MAJOR people. If you can find better go out there and do it. Oh that’s right…you can’t. Kim frustrates me. I can’t stand for people to use other people.

        • fashion42 says:

          Kandi has been in the game for awhile and although she has real talent- she isn’t booking gigs with 10,000 people watching. She knows Kim gets booked and even if it’s pretty much a joke, people show up. It would give Kandi a wider audience for her music.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        agree that Kandi has talent and it is her profession – she did something nice for Kim (who still doesn’t have either the talent or passion to have a career in the music industry). IMO, she didn’t think the song would take off and was surprised that it did! Kandi has class, while Kim is still trash.

        • RubyNewbie says:

          Kandi seems to have a really good heart–and people take advantage. One day, some good guy will realize she’s golden and snatch her up!

          Oh my, what can you say about Phaedra? Everybody’s already got her number. She wants to be a Jack & Jill/ Links/Boule type moving and shaking African-American, but she’s really a noveau riche hood rat with delusions of grandeur. Any real true blue member of the elite would never do a reality show.

          • tee tee says:

            @Ruby- I would not call her a hood rat. She is not robbing, cursing loudly or fighting anyone.
            She is an educated black woman with a good upbringing (but very stuck up).

  8. TEB says:

    Just watched the WWHL with Lisa and Nate extra footage. MickeyMouth and BaileysLaura got their questions answered!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Wait I got a question answered. I don’t even remember asking one, lol. Where do I go to see the extra footgage?

      • TEB says:

        You tweeted it. They called you MickeyMouth1. I can’t remember your question though. Lynn has the link to the extra footage in today’s blog. 🙂 I was so proud!

        • MickeyMouth says:

          BaileysLaura tweeted the link. She asked Lisa about her comments re Russell and I asked about her ankle tattoo. That was funny. Andy said my nic, ha ha who’s the star now Jill Zarin, lol.

  9. HD says:

    I was out doing Halloween this weekend so of course if you miss one day around here you got a lot of catching up to do.

    I hope you had a Happy Anniversary WSL!

    Thank you everyone that asked about my books. I have self published 6 books (4 collections of poetry and 2 novels) They are doing pretty well but would be doing MUCH BETTER if Random House just decided they needed me. 🙂 I have worked so hard writing, it is my passion and sometimes I get discouraged because I know I have written two great books that a lot of people in my city know about but not the RIGHT people throughout the country. Sometimes I feel like I am on a treadmill working so hard for nothing. I need prayer and encouragement shoot at this point I need a miracle! 🙂 At any rate…my website is http://www.hannahldrake.com and all the books and info are there. So now you know what the HD is for. 🙂 But were pretty close so enjoy!

    I thought this was a great post under Fakedra’s latest blog by Camille46:

    Phaedra make no mistake about it. Those of us who are educated ARE PROUD of our accomplishments. But there is a world of difference in being proud and being arrogant. Finding a way to bring up your accomplishments into every conversation is rude. You claim to be a southern belle, but much of your behavior is in direct contrast to how many of us “belles” have been taught to behave. Im curious as to what your definition of a southern belle is. What qualifies you to be one? Is it only due to being raised in the south, or do you think it means a southern woman who is spoiled, thinks the world revolves around her, rude, racist, materialistic, arrogant and hypocritical? If thats your defenition then Id say yes, you are a true southern belle.
    Im sorry Phaedra, I so want to support you but I cant. I hate that the one successful, beautiful, established and educated black woman on this show is the most ignorant. Yes Im talking about you Phaedra. I feel that you are an embarrassment to ALL black women simply because you still being showed as someone who is reflecting a stereotype: that is a successful sista who is spoiled, materialistic and rude. And worst of all you are rude, demanding and condescending to your husband. That is perhaps the worst stereotype of all, that successful black women dont know how to relate to black men, and you are playing right into it. Its sickening. And how can you say that you have had so much success, had so many different experiences, traveled etc..but then say some of the most childish, ignorant things. Someone with the resume that you have should know that not all white people eat canned foods. Im sure that you have been all over the world, and for someone who claims to have the experiences and education that you have, a statement that generalizes a whole race of people is unacceptable. In other words, the way you act and the the things you say dont add up. And lets not forget that you claim to have so many degrees, but listening to you speak, its as if you barely have a GED. Get it together, whether you like it or not, you are representing us, and you have to go beyond the bling to past the test.
    And for the record, I am a southern African American woman. I am educated (several degrees) I am a professional. I consider myself a southern belle, but my definition is apparently different than yours. My definition, is a woman from the south who is more than likely the apple of her daddy’s eye, from an established family, one who is raised to be gracious, welcoming, educated and gentile. She is never rude or catty and is always mindful of her manners, the things she says and how she is viewed by others and always carries herself in a respectable manner. People speak highly of her. Now as you view these comments and view yourself on the show, can you honestly say that those characteristics were the ones showcased?
    Get it together..you’ re making us look bad. You are not being critized for the things you have, we dont hate your because you are established and successful, but its the way you treat others that is causing this backlash. Learn to own up to your shortcomings and find a way to be a better person. Dont try to justify your bad behavior by saying you are just proud etc.

    • dreemz says:

      Kmuellfa, I think Camille46 pretty much sums up the way I see it. I find it hard to believe Phaedra went through all that education and didn’t learn how to behave better…simply by exposure to others with manners and tact. She could hardly have made many (quality) friends along the way. I’d be surprised if she was included in too many activities unless they were ‘pay to be included’ activities. (how sad). Getting an education isn’t absolutely all about the degree itself, it’s also about all around growth as an individual, grace, maturity. I’m just shaking my head, the only reason I believe she is educated is because she is on Bravo telling us she is.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      When I was reading through Fakedra’s blog comments – Camille46’s comment stood out – articulate, pointed and beyond a shadow of a doubt on the money!

    • RubyNewbie says:

      Oh wow. She said it all. The lack of self-awareness of some of these Housewives is astounding. How did she think her schtick was gonna go over? Only other snobs would appreciate that behavior. I think people showed up for the baby shower to watch the circus! Apollo really needs to object to the insults she hurls at his family. But maybe he’s only in it for the room, board and allowance!

  11. coocoopuffs78 says:

    Yet another great post Lynn!

    Please accept my heartfelt and very belated CONTGRATS on your new radio show. I’m so proud of you! Thanks for finding the time to post and keeping me entertained as always.

  12. Wall St Lady says:

    Party Time !

    Hey Noelle !

    Happy Birthday (WSL singing loudly)

    Your birthday cake is on waxdiva’s
    Operating table

    There is a link to all the famous people born Nov. 1st at the very bottom.

    November 1 Birthday

    YOUR SIGN – Scorpio.

    YOUR ELEMENT – Water

    YOUR RULERS –  Mars. 

    November 1  Birthday interpretation.(How much of this is true ?)

    Born on this November 1 Scorpio birth date, yours is a life path favored by the elements of chance and discovery. This is an aspect of your personality that you should give due consideration to, and look to identifying and seizing upon the significance and potentialities of those apparent random, and chance events that arise in your life.

    As example, if something deviates you from a particular course then go with the flow of that new direction. Learn to accept and to trust in the flow of your life, and how to release your ideas and concepts of how it should be. Your inherent enthusiasm for the unpredictability in your life assures that all will be well.

    As a November 1 birth date you are a very clever and astute when it come to matters of strategy. While you are by nature a quiet and unassuming character, you have been gifted with the ability to be a shrewd judge of character. 

    You will by nature always tend to hold your cards close to your chest or, in other words, you will tend to observe rather than talk, and keep your thoughts and observations to yourself.

    You have that inherent ability to be able, and with and aura of sensitivity, delve into, and to penetrate, the emotional blocks and walls that others may put up to conceal their feelings, thoughts or true personality traits.

    This aspect of your personality combined with your excellent intellect indicates that you would be a great person to have involved in business meeting and negotiations. You would be one who would tend to see and identify matters very swiftly and, will be highly careful and diplomatic in any thing you may say.

    Another characteristic associated with this November 1 birth date indicates you are one who is likely to have a high sense of personal morality and ethics. There is the strong possibility that in your case, this strong code of personal behavior could arise as result of some strongly held religious belief.

    The November 1 birth date identifies with one who has a strong restless energy combined with a relatively strong will. This combination forms a powerful influence that needs direction. In your case it could be advisable to direct it towards arenas for creativity and enlightenment.

    There is the influence of a strong protective power associated with this day, and that should ensure that you would tend to be able to avoid any really dreadful or appalling experiences in your life.

    November 1 is a birth date that has many connections to matters associated with that of occultism. There is a strong possibility that you already have interest in the arenas of the mysterious and unknown. 

    If you decide to take a greater interest in such matters then a course on “tarot” reading or, aromatherapy massage could be for you. You might even develop your skills to the point of turning them into a full time occupation.

    Professional counseling, psychological, and physical healing could be other career areas in which your talents can prove of value.

    As a November 1 you have a strong passionate and romantic streak. You are likely to have a preference for stable long-term stable relationships.

    Obsession, jealousness and possessiveness are traits associated with Scorpio, and these can form negative aspects of your personality that can result in unhappy situations. Situations that might well arise as result of totally unjustified suspicions on your part.

    The colors of red, pink, black, off-white, and sky blue resonate well with this birth date.

    I don’t think Bravo moving RHOA to Sunday is necessarily a bad idea. Right now there are several reality shows that broadcast at 8 and 9 oclock. Amazing Race and Undercoverboss are on right now.
    Celebrity Apprentice runs on Sundays. Maybe Bravo is trying to get the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice fans who have never heard of NeNe or the RH to jump over to Bravo to check it out?
    RHOA (10pm) should dovetail with Celeb App time wise/ I don’t know if Celeb App will start before the new epis of RHOA ends.

  17. HD says:

    Can someone please tell me-other than tonight’s episode, did Phaedra ever say when she was due?

    I know she got married in November and she had her baby in May. So it is obvious she is lying. I was just curious if she ever said when her baby was due.

    • quincyil says:

      Maybe…. the baby was premature…

      • HD says:

        I don’t think so because tonight she says “this baby has to come out of here” and then she says “he (the doctor) is going to take it at 6 or 7 months. And they have this discussion about it like they cannot believe any doctor would just take a baby that early if it was not some medical reason which she said the baby was on her bladder and she was bleeding last week. Which if that is the case, if it was that bad, she would be on bedrest not having baby showers dancing around rooms and eating at her friends house.

        Something is not adding up with her. And one of the women asks her how far along she is and she says, “I don’t know”. What mother especially a new one doesn’t know how many months they are? Every pregnant woman knows that like the back of their hand and then they start REALLY counting down. So how can she say she doesn’t know?

        I think she got pregnant before she was married and is trying to cover it up by fudging the dates and saying a doctor is going to take a perfectly normal baby out at 6/7 months because it is on her bladder? Something is not right here. Maybe its just me. I think she is lying to save face. I can’t wait until tonight. I have watched that clip a million times. LOL!

        • lillybee says:

          Unless there is a life threatening situation, no doctor would deliver a 6 or 7 month fetus early. BTW, in my opinion she looked full term at her shower.

        • quincyil says:

          A doctor would not take that baby at 6 or 7 months if the mother and baby are healthy. In this day, so many moms aren’t married and she is not young. I don’t see why she would be compelled to lie on TV. I wonder how big that baby was when it was born.

          • American Idiot says:

            So silly to lie about something so easy to disprove. Using a reverse due date calculator, (using May 24 as the due date), the baby was probably conceived around Aug. 30th.

            This is assuming the baby was born at full term.

          • AZ Girl says:

            Big enough to play this season with the Bears on defense..HA!!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      She said it was due in July. It was born May 24. The shower was May 2. (Dates from articles pulled up by Google under her name.)

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        And the fabulous Fakedra can not seem to count to 9! To borrow a paraphrased line from the one we all hate, “Just because you say it doesn’t make it so!”

        • HD says:

          I knew she was lying. I just cannot believe it was such a HUGE lie to try to cover up the fact she was pregnant when she got married. I just cannot believe someone would lie like that. I could tell the way she kept covering her mouth while she was answering thier questions that she was lying. This is often a tell for a liar. (Yes I know she was eating but she talked with her mouth full and did not cover her mouth about other situations) As soon as the baby and those dates came up she starting with her lying body language. (I watch this stuff too closely) LOL!

          From the way she acted in the limo with Cynthia and her fiance she made it like she was a virgin. Yeah right. Apollo was hitting that and you got pregnant and married him. Stop frontin’!

          If that baby was born May 24 there is NO WAY she got pregnant after she got married which is why she created this story about some doctor taking a healthy baby at 7 months as long as his lungs are developed. Does she think we are all stupid! (For the record I don’t think being pregnant before you are married is a big deal anymore. I just was blown away by the lie.)

          • quincyil says:

            How old is she? Was she a 40 year old virgin?

            • HD says:

              She went on and on about how that was the first time she had lived with Apollo when they got married and how both her parents are pastors and she is so Holy Ghost filled. That is why I can’t wait until tonight for her to bust out this huge lie.

              • Need a Hobby says:

                The only thing that surprises me is that Fakedra hasn’t tried to claim immaculate conception.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      There is no way on earth that a doctor would take a child at 6 or 7 months gestation. No way. My son was born at 37 weeks and they were still worried about his lung development. Boys are even more susceptible to less lung development. So I’m calling b.s. AND calling her an idiot.

I hope Sheree didn’t give him the cookie cause she must be so pissed right now.
      The former Clark Atlanta University associate professor turned castaway on TBS’ “The Real Gilligan’s Island” has called himself a psychologist on his Web site and book jacket covers, yet he is not licensed to practice psychology in Georgia or anywhere else.

      I am still laughing. This woman is comdey gold!

      • quincyil says:

        As I have been reading posts, I was wondering about Phaedra. I think she’s functioning, but she seems to have an inadequate sense of reality. It’s a little like Tareq Salahi and his empire and status in DC. She seems to believe her own hype.

        I have met a couple of people like Phaedra over these many years. Both individuals had delusions of granduer and tried to live the lives that they imagined. Neither seemed to fit in with their peer group. I watched them flounder as we watch Phaedra flounder.

        I think Phaedra, like Tareq, will never find truth. It’s really not narcissism as they have the imaginary world Apolla and the baby are in for a really rough ride if you ask me.

        • HD says:

    Fake dra dreadful

  26. quincyil says:

    Let’s imagine a little girl growing up in the strict home of two Black preachers where children were not to be seen or listened to in the presence of adults. She creates a world where she is important and free. It’s an imaginary world because in reality she is controlled and manipulated by her parents and the world she is growing up in.

    She dreams…of being a ballerina, an equestrian, a Southern belle….

    She’s an intelligent little girl who functions well in the academic environment. She gets college degrees and is able to work in a profession that provides a good living. Yet, she never left that imaginary world that she created.

    It’s not narcissism.

    It could be megalomania. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalomania

    “Megalomania is a word defined as: [1]

    A psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence.
    An obsession with grandiose or extravagant things or actions.
    The word megalomania is derived from the Greek words “μεγαλο”: megalo-, meaning large, and “μανία”: mania, meaning madness, frenzy. The first attested use of the word “megalomania” is in 1890 as a translation of the French word “mégalomanie”.

    “Megalomania is not a symptom or a diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)[2] or the ICD. However, grandiosity and delusions of grandeur have similar meanings to megalomania and are used in the DSM and ICD as possible symptoms of several mental conditions.”

    Our imaginary little girl has the means to make some of the grandiosity appear to be true which is all the more sad because she is spending money and not getting the respect that she so desires.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      It works.

      The comparison with Tareq disn’t quite ring true. Both he and Michaela are EXCITED! and ENTHUSIASTIC! and LOVE! everything. Ok yeah it’s fake, but at least they seem like they are fun people. (until the bill arrives)

      Fakedra just seems so miserable in her own little boxed in world. She seems desperately unhappy. I could not stand being in a room with her because she’d suck all of the joy right out of it. Is that part of this definition?

      Tareq and Michaela I could be in the same room with, as long as I wasn’t standing next to Lynda and asking any hard questions.

      • quincyil says:

        I just posted, then saw your post. I think we would enjoy being with Michaele. She appears to be very friendly. People can’t say, “No,” to her. Tareq has a darkness, the I think we would all pick up on. Watch his eyes shift away when he talks to people. He’s a mean drunk too.

        His delusion is that he is the king of Oasis and is going to change the world for the better. One company fails and out of the ashes a new company is born. No one ever gets paid because the bankruptcy laws won’t allow you to pay them.

        I see his delusions in the 8 million dollar home that he will buy when someone gives him the money to finance a new start for Oasis. I see his delusions in getting tickets for Stacy for many more White House dinners and events. He knows that he and our President are close.

        Michaele is tuning into his delusion, but I think she knows the truth. “For better or worse.” with tears streaming down her face as Tareq deals with the sheriff again…. She knows. She wants to be delusional, but she knows. Eventually, Michaele will leave Tareq and we may get the truth that she promised us.

    • quincyil says:

      delusions of grandeur – a delusion (common in paranoia) that you are much greater and more powerful and influential than you really are

      that definition fits Tareq Salahi to a T…

      When Stacy said that the Salahis were narcissists … I thought..yeah..self centered… but I think Tareq is a narcissist and a megalmaniac. He told us how they were so important in the relationship between the US and India. Then when India pulled out of his goat rodea, he hired a bunch of Pakistanis and told everyone that those polo players were representatives of India. He was trying to make his delusion come true.

      I don’t see Teresa in this same condition. She wants to have those grand parties, but she’s not telling us that she is personally responsible for the international relations between Italy and the US.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        But what about Fakedra?

        • HD says:

          I am cracking up, Quincy! You are too funny! You are so right!

          • quincyil says:

            I think I’m right, but it makes me want to hug Phaedra and try to help her. It’s like Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall and she did her best to put that little girl back together again. I’m sure she wouldn’t listen to me, but I would try to help her if I knew her.

        • quincyil says:

          She’s a lawyer so I’m trying to be careful…

          In my opinion, please read the First Amendment, Phaedra has delusions of grandeur and megalomania. I think she was a very intelligent little girl and was crushed in that home. Excessive discipline affects children, but a very bright child might escape mentally. I think she went into a dream world and never left it even when she had success.

          In the miliatary boot camps, they break the free will of the soldiers through exhaustian and abusive discipline. You can break children too. They rebuild the soldiers in group think and patriotism. As a child, in my opinion, Phaedra was broken by discipline and she recreated herself in the dream world. That is how she survived.

          • HD says:

            The funny thing with people like that is they cannot see themselves. She probably thinks she is coming off really grand and sophisticated and part of the upper crust of Atlanta when she looks like a fool.

            • quincyil says:

              She’s be a wonderful character for a book, HD. The only problem would be helping her find a path out of the delusion. I’d like to think Apollo would be able to help her, but she doesn’t think highly of him. Not a recipe for a good marriage if you ask me.

              I wonder what the white mother in law thinks of all of this. We both know that she will have influence over Apollo. She probably wants to be a grandmother to the baby and I don’t think Phaedra will allow that.

              My family is mixed and we have had really good luck with family. Everyone wants the best for the children so we work together and celebrate together.

              When I first my Italian son in laws family, his mom told me that she loved my daughter and would love her as a daughter. I told her that I would love her son as my own son. That is the way families should be.

        @OneMore–Last year my brother got a free wood stove on Craigslist. He worked so hard to install it down cellar. He had to replace the plaster with fire proof stuff. He had to put special stuff on the ceiling above the stove. He really worked hard, he’s got wood all neatly lined up in the cellar. I thought he was being ridiculous but I was so wrong! It is so warm in our house it’s like the tropics. And no running the heat. The only thing that stinks is that he stays at his g/f condo all the time and I’m running up and down the stairs.

        The wood stove is right below where the fireplace is in the living room. My animals lay on the wood floor in front of the fireplace and look like they’re dead, they love the heat.

      Jeff Lewis does that too. I did that research on the frontal lobe and OCD a while back. That reaction is part of the syndrome along with the lack of control like Tourette’s Syndrome.

      Hmmmm… Phaedra seems to have a lack of control in her sharing of thoughts too. I wonder if she has any other OCD traits. She loves control, you could see it in the way her office was run and in how she wants to control her baby and husband.

          • RubyNewbie says:

            Perhaps they met when he was a freshman and she was in her last year of law school. It’s a stretch, but maybe so. Or maybe we just have another pathological liar on our hands. I don’t buy the white collar criminal schtick either. I heard dude was involved in some car theft ring.

    Tonight is seems like Peter, Cynthia’s beau, took a Cat/Erica pill and decided to break out and tell “the truth”. No more Mr. NiceGuy!

    I guess after being insulted by Phaedra, he decided to cut the HW’s quick. Started by going after Phaedra babymama drama issues and ended with telling VirginalNene her lack of sex is the problem in her marriage! Oh my! Cynthia’s hair stood on end! LOL

  50. HD says:

    Okay ya’ll I hope I am not harping on Phaedra I just cannot stand liars like the Salihi’s Jill, etc.

    Here is a quote from Phaedra:

    “I know women can have it all. However, you have to find the right person who understands your career and your goals. My husband I met in 1995, he’s watched me grow and is very proud of me. Some men can be jealous of your career and your success. You can’t be with a man who doesn’t want you to grow.”

    He did say he was 30 tonight right? Something is not adding up here.

  51. Adgirl says:

    Cannot believe Peter went off on NeNe in front of everyone about her not sexing up Gregg! Too much wine Peter?

    Cynthia Bailey Bravo Blog
    Cynthia’s Social Network
    Cynthia talks about hosting the ladies for Mother’s Day and selects her favorite parts of the episode.
    Back to the brunch. Things that made me giggle, cringe, or just left me confused:

    1. The brunch turning into a cross between an episode of “Girls Gone Wild,” “The Food Network,” and “Sex and the City.”

    2. Being very pregnant, and not having any idea when your due date is. Not a clue. Is that show “Unsolved Mysteries” still on?

    3. The thought of any of our mothers (or any of us for that matter) getting our dildo on.

    4. Putting food products inside my “private area.” We are in a recession, and groceries cost too much money to keep my “private area” stocked in addition to my refrigerator.

    5. Having your unborn baby super early because it is sitting on your bladder. Well, where else is it supposed to sit? Noelle was born almost 9 pounds, and I think it’s safe to say she sat on my bladder and anywhere else she could find to sit on. When did this become an option?

    6. Peter announcing that Mr. Clean had arrived bearing Mother’s Day gifts. Oops, I mean gift. Have to agree with Sheree on this one. What rhymes with “wacky?”

    7. NeNe almost barfing at the thought of chowing down on powdered sugar mixed with a little va-jay-jay juice. Did I hear someone say “delicious?” I think I just threw up in my mouth.

    8. Is it just me, or would Dr. Muhammad look a lot better if he just shaved his head? Even if he was a billionaire, the hair still needs to go.

    9. Peter being a jerk for upsetting NeNe by being insensitive. Thanks Peter, that’s exactly what my relationship with NeNe needed. TENSION. Good looking out, babe.

    10. Never did figure out what “completing the full act” means. Sounds scary and very painful, maybe even illegal.

    11. Great baby advice to any new mom: Leave your child inside of you until he is ready to come out or at least until his due date. How brilliant is that? Thanks NeNe.

    12. I still don’t believe that I am a D bra size, even though the bras did fit.

    13. Kim was missed at the dinner table. Her input would have been welcomed, and no doubt hilarious.

    14. For the record. I do live in a re-gentrified neighborhood. I grew up in the hood or the ghetto (whatever you want to call it), and I love and respect all my fellow neighbors. People are people, no matter where they live, or how much money they make. Besides I love my house, and I could care less what kind of neighborhood it is in. But thanks for pointing that out, because I keep forgetting. Excuse me for not living next door from Usher and across the street from Luda.

    15. Question: Is it right to hate on people, and then get all self- righteous when that same hate is returned? Hmmmm. Something to ponder.

      Adgirl: That’s absolutely effin wonderful!! I was literally laughing out loud. Thanks for posting that! That’s great.

      I hadn’t looked at their blogs, but now that I know this is the kind of stuff Cynthia puts in hers I will be reading.

  54. lillybee says:

    So far, I like Cynthia and I love Kandi.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Peter was sure out of line tonight though – which makes me wonder why she’s with him. Maybe he was just mad that he had to sit at the kiddie table since he was the only man until Apollo arrived.

    • lillybee says:

      Last year Jill was shopping for a show about herself, her sister and her mother. I guess this would be an improvement without Gloria.

      • Noelle says:

        No network in their right mind would ever agree on a “Jill” anything show. What a way to write your own ending..anyone that would try it is clearly career-suicidal. jmo

    • Need a Hobby says:

      After that story came out last month, Jill came out and denied it, saying she didn’t want her own show, how much she loved Bravo, being on RHONY, etc. Yeah, sure.

      • Noelle says:

        @NeedaHobby, What a wench jill is!!

        This blows my mind…jill gets 15Gs for a speaking engagement??? WTF…How low are our standards? 😦

  55. Adgirl says:

    It feels like the clock is running out on quite a few of these RH to obtain their own show. Teresa, Danielle, Jill and Gretchen are already stale and on the mark down shelf.

    Why can’t Jill be happy with her bedding line at Bed Bath & Beyond? Teresa has a book (ghost written) on the best seller list. Danielle has reached the heights of embarrassing MILF with her sex taps which hasn’t hampered her daughter’s modeling career.
    Gretchen has Slade and a bunch of unsold make up and handbags.

    Three out of four of these ladies have accomplished something that was unthinkable for them before Housewives.

    And Gretchen has Slade. Karma.

  56. JazzNightOut says:

    Can someone tell me what the deal is with Phaedra’s teeth? They look weird when she smiles.

    • Noelle says:

      I think her teeth look fine, even when she smiles.

      I just don’t like her.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        It’s the way she smiles that bugs me, with that curl of her lips. And her lips look a little enhanced – and way too glossy.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      Maybe it is when she laughs; tiny, pointy teeth. Or… she’s fine (I mean her teeth, not her personality) and I am seeing fangs, lol.

  57. Noelle says:

    @WSL,

    Thanks ever so much for your greetings and the rundown of those born Nov 1.

    Take good care of yourself and WSM! xoxoxo

    • cusi77 says:
