I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta Nov 2, 2010
Say what you want about the Atlanta Housewives, they are
hysterical! Some of the one-liners that these women come up with in their interviews are priceless.
As Kim Zolciak attempts to maneuver herself into Kandi’s studio to appear on Kandi’s internet podcast/radio show, Kandi Koated Nights she speculates with her assistant, Sweetie about what Kandi’s new venture is all about. I’m sorry to say that Sweetie, who I initially thought was substantially smarter than her employer,
must be drinking from Kim’s stupid fountain and suggested that maybe Kandi’s show was on PBS.
Finally getting into Kandi’s house after comparing knocking techniques Kim and Sweetie quickly learn that Kandi’s show is all about sex! Kim’s appearance on Kandi’s internet show turned into a conversation about cheating and Kim’s seat became a bit warm as we learned that Kim didn’t consider herself a cheater as she’s not
the one who is married. Then again, Big Poppa, a cheater by most people’s definition, isn’t cheating either according to Kim because his wife lives in Los Angeles and Big Poppa lives in Atlanta. Kim Zolciak not only got hit with the stupid stick, she was beaten down and left as road kill.
With six housewives this season, Atlanta is finding it challenging to give each Housewife equal air time and tonight we saw a limited
amount of Kim Zolciak making this the best episode to date. There was one other short scene of Kim picking out furniture for her daughter’s room that was not only a waste of air time but also showed another side of Kim. Kim’s daughter was obviously drawn to a sports theme but was quickly told that she wasn’t getting anything of the sort, pushing her own style onto her kid, Kim is such a hypocrite. Bye Kim Zolciak, the rest of the episode is
We first see NeNe Leakes in her doctor’s office having the bandage removed from her nose revealing a now “contoured” nose and as
the doctor checks out his handy-work on her breasts and stomach we see a bit more of NeNe than necessary. Note to Bravo: blurring the nipples is all well and good but we really could just do without seeing that altogether.
Cynthia picks NeNe up and they return to Cynthia’s house for that glass of wine that the doctor approved. NeNe explains to Cynthia that she loves her husband but that things between them have been strained lately due to a number of different things but doesn’t go into detail. NeNe doesn’t want to go home because her husband Gregg is crabby and unsupportive of her new look.
I noticed as the episode aired both last week and this week that NeNe tweeted quite a lot about her right to have surgery and that it was her money paying for these procedures and she would not pay attention to any of these critics. The odd thing about NeNe’s tweets is that no one seemed to be criticizing her or questioning her
right to have plastic surgery, at least not publically on Twitter. We can only assume that she was referring to her husband Gregg who may have had issues with NeNe’s decision to have the surgeries.
NeNe has a habit of doing that, she’s clearly focusing her comments on what is happening privately causing fans to scratch their heads wondering who and what she’s referring to in her tweets. As the scenes at Cynthia’s Mothers Day brunch were shown, NeNe was tweeting about having a meal with her haters, it certainly didn’t appear as though the other housewives hate her, in fact they seemed very supportive during those scenes, particularly Kandi’s mother.
@NeNeLeakes I’m the talk of the town & that’s what keep me going 2 the BANK!
NeNeNeLeakes The nose is fierce! The rest of these chicks has had surgery 2 & the 1’s that haven’t, need 2! I’m just brave enough 2 put it all out there
@NeNeLeakesThese chicks know it look good 2 but they love to HATE
@NeNeLeakes I dinner with a bunch of haters!
This can only mean that somewhere down the line NeNe has a falling out with some or all of these ladies. She calls them haters and doesn’t even give a pass to Cynthia who appears to be a pretty good friend on the show up to this point. I think that we’re getting a glimpse of what goes on in future episodes.
NeNe’s not the best at hiding plotlines and her feelings. Imagine how the New York housewives felt as the first dozen or so episodes aired and they commented on their show but were unable to mention anything about how Kelly will freak out on St. John. Here we’re getting hints from NeNe that all the friendships that were in place at the beginning of the season may not make it in tact to the end of the season.
We’ll get back to the Mother’s Day dinner party at Cynthia’s but let’s talk a bit about Sheree’s scenes tonight. As she prepares for her 2nd date with Fake-Doc Tiy-E, her daughter and her boyfriend arrive to stay with Sheree’s younger son. Here we learn that the Doc told Sheree that he lived, “Bi-costal”, fairly vague but typically means Los Angeles and New York to most people. Sheree adds in her interview that he doesn’t own a home in Atlanta (well no, that is not on a coast, so he didn’t lie) but does he have a real home anywhere in the country?
Doc Tiy-E is planning to prepare a meal for Sheree in honor of their second date but it will be prepared at a “friend’s” house, that would be your first clue to run like hell in the opposite direction. This guy either doesn’t want you to see where he lives, which cannot be good, or he’s staying in a hotel or motel with no kitchen? This whole thing is very shady!
Upon arrival Sheree learns that she is not being served dinner so much as she’s going to be preparing dinner with the Doc. Sheree is handed a knife and told to start chopping the strawberries then learns that dessert will be chocolate chip cookies that Sheree needs to help to drop on a cookie sheet. Well if all of that didn’t make
her run for the hills, his insistence that she eat cookie dough off of his finger should have sent her packing. But the grand finale was when he called it a “Miracle on 24th Street” when he finally got Sheree to eat the cookie dough. (I think he may have meant 34th street unless his friends home was on 24th street) That was uncomfortable to watch.
At their home cooked meal, FakeDocbrags about what a great body he has and without missing a beat Sheree tells him to take off his shirt, he challenges her to do it and the result is something that you don’t really want to enjoy with your dinner but possibly after dinner.
Sheree honestly explains that she is looking for a man with money maybe a 60/40 split in the money/love department. If this Doc has no money I wouldn’t be surprised as he tries to talk her into a 65/30 split which only adds up to 95 so math is obviously not his best subject. It helps if you have money to be able to count it apparently.
Kandi had some emotional scenes tonight, first with her daughter, Reilly as they discuss Kandi’s ex who hasn’t been around for Reilly on a consistent basis. The child’s paternal grandmother had called to let her know that her Great-grandmother had passed away wanting Reilly to attend the funeral. It is debatable whether or not a 7-year old should be attending a funeral at all but Kandi seems to be encouraging her to at least call her grandmother back but Reilly says she prefers not to have her father in her life.
Reilly’s father probably doesn’t realize the extent of damage that he is doing, not only to his 7-year old daughter but to the rest of his family by not keeping in constant contact with her. If he was watching his daughter on television last night, I hope it opened his eyes.
Kandi then goes to her mother for advice on how to deal with all of this and we learn that Kandi’s father was also not present in Kandi’s life. I have to give kudos here to Kandi’s mom not only for the sound advice she gives to her daughter but for raising such a lovely woman as Kandi all on her own.
Phaedra, what do we do with this woman? I wonder if when they watch themselves on television, they see how hard Bravo’s editors work to make them appear foolish. Phaedra decides it would
be a good idea to take some professional pregnancy photos, it seems to be all the rage these days. Unfortunately atsome point in Phaedra’s life she saw another pregnant woman who took photos
with pickles and decided that was a good idea. I will not clap.
Cynthia and NeNe are together again, this time bra shopping. Now that NeNe has new boobs, she needs a new container for them. Since she paid a lot of money for them to stand upright, she typically doesn’t wear bra’s, but she’s able to find a few that she likes and we, once again, see a whole lot of NeNe as she shows off her new stomach and boobs.
The ladies are discussing NeNe’s marriage problems and without giving specifics we learn hear more about her lack of communication and trust issues. Cynthia is concerned as she
begins to think about her own wedding and whether or not she wants to get married at all after hearing NeNe’s problems.
Back to Cynthia’s Mother’s Day dinner and Kim calls with her typical excuse, her daughter is ill which is Kim language for, “I don’t have a clean wig to wear”. Phaedra makes her typical rude comment about the location of Cynthia’s home including that area of town is not for her. Just in case the camera’s didn’t catch
Phaedra’s obligatory rude comment she goes on to instruct the young girls at the party to become lawyers and not models when they grow up. Cynthia being a better hostess than Stacie Turner from DC ignores the comment and moves on.
Cynthia seats the children at a table separate from the adults which is typical for many dinner parties but she also bans the men to a separate dining location leaving only the ladies on the outdoor terrace enjoying their catered meal. No, Cynthia did not cook for this crowd.
The most interesting conversation started with Phaedra in the hot seat, a seemingly simple question of when is your baby due? Turned into accusations of lies and inappropriate doctors. Phaedra tells the group that the due date was late July or early August but that her doctor is going to take the baby early. Just looking at her, it is difficult to believe that she won’t deliver naturally for another 2 1/2 to 3 months, she looks well beyond 6 months along. Phaedra tells the shocked group that as long as the baby’s lungs are developed it is perfectly fine for the doctor to deliver her baby 2-3 months before it’s natural due date. Maybe her doctor is Sheree’s date the Fake-Doc?
NeNe explains that the reason for Phaedra’s bizarre behavior was her attempt to hide the conception date from everyone so as to not reveal that she was pregnant at her fancy wedding. Sheree had the funniest line of the night here, “bitch, you don’t know when you got knocked up?” NeNe’s was a close second telling viewers that even chick from the hood who don’t know who they’re pregnant by still know when their baby is due. The comedy alone on the Atlanta Housewives is worth the price of admission.
I could watch it over and over…
The ladies have some interesting conversations about everything from sex discussions ala Kandi Koated Nights to NeNe’s new nose. NeNe really opens up to the ladies explaining that her mother passed away several years ago and she is afraid to be on her own without a husband. Kandi’s mom Joyce has some sound advice and they seem to bond over similar experiences.
It gets uncomfortable when the men join the ladies and NeNe asks for their opinion on cheating husbands. As NeNe explains that she isn’t much of a sexual woman, Cynthia’s fiancé Peter practically tells NeNe that it is her fault if her husband strays based on her description of their sex life. The tension can be cut with a knife as we hear Cynthia in a voice over saying that she told Peter in advance not to bring up NeNe’s marriage. In his defense, he
was asked for his opinion, however, Phaedra’s husband Apollo was also asked but managed to keep his mouth shut.
Only the two newest Atlanta Housewives have posted blogs, I don’t think we’ll see anymore blogs from NeNe this season as she’s filming Celebrity Apprentice right now. Phaedra’s blog is a waste of internet space while Cynthia’s is great! She pointed out the wacky discussion of sugar in the va-jay-jay which was pretty strange Mother’s Day discussion but even stranger was Phaedra who kept saying it was “delicious”. HUH? Is this woman double jointed or was she a lesbian in a former life? Anyway..moving on..Cynthia’s blog is worth a read…
Until Next Time…..
