I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Nov 15, 2010
The show opens with Sheree showing off her new car, an Aston Martin, the very same vehicle that was repossessed just weeks ago in real-time. Sheree tweeted “don’t worry, I’ll get another one”. Rumor has it that her attorney had the vehicle repossessed due to her failure to pay her legal bill to him. There has to be more to that
story because unless Sheree paid for it outright and had no lien on the car, the bank who holds the paper on the car would be the only people who could repossess it. We’ll get back to Sheree.
Kim escorts her family into the house to show them her new gaudy office decorated with photographs of herself. The always classy Kim tells viewers that if we don’t like it, we can “eat shit and die”.
Is this woman in the 8th grade? That office was tacky! She also had her youngest daughter, Arianna’s room re-decorated and updated to reflect the pre-teen’s change from childhood, updating it for an older girl.
Arianna was properly pleased and thanked her mom with a big hug and even tears. Kim’s older daughter Brielle was none-to-pleased that her little sister got a completely new room and she was stuck with her huge 2,000 square foot entire upstairs floor bedroom and refuses to be happy for her little sister. She pouts on the bed and won’t even hug Arianna. Kim’s reaction, “I guess I have to do Brielle’s room too!” What a great mom! Reward bad behavior with a complete bedroom redo, Kim informs us that she spent $60,000 on this child’s bedroom. We should introduce Kim to Taylor of Beverly Hills and they can spend $60,000 foolishly together! Kim tweeted during the episode, here are her thoughts:
@KimZolciak: It is NOT scripted however yes I do have to spend time with the ladies, most of which I would rather not
@KimZolciak: whenever Kandi and I have a problem we talk and get things straight 🙂
@KimZolciak: Nene and I have known each other for years, we always have a fun time together that girl makes me ROTFLMBO
@KimZolciak: I will always have a soft spot for Nene, as for Kandi we have a real friendship.
@KimZolciak: That is really it, we all talk smack abt each other & it gets caddy…What I do know is I am very thankful 4 Dancing w/Atl Stars 😉
@KimZolciak: Kandi and I did NOT have a problem to my knowledge, I found out while watching the show how she felt just like you all have
@KimZolciak: I do not speak to any of the girls, I do like Phaedra off camera, she is been very sweet to me.
@KimZolciak: Eat shit and Die? Who did I say that to?
To answer Kim’s last question, that would be us, the viewers, you know those “Fans” you’re always talking about. This is also another great opportunity to mention what a really bad idea it is to allow your teenage daughter to be on Twitter. Brielle was forced to fight the good fight as fans of the show tweeted to her about her poor behavior while Mom was tweeting with a radio show telling people to leave her daughter alone. Wouldn’t it just be a whole lot easier to get the kid off of Twitter completely?
Thank you Bravo for limiting Kim Zolciak’s on screen time
once again. NeNe arrives at Cynthia’s house and is greeted by Cynthia’s sister as the two ladies have been recruited by Cynthia’s fiancé…er boyfriend, Peter to plan and organize the proposal of marriage. The ladies decorate with tea lights and rose pedals throughout the living room as Peter and Cynthia arrive for the big
moment. Now I thought as they were planning it all that they would be sneaking out the back door and leaving the happy couple alone for the big moment. Instead, Peter had an audience of Cynthia’s family and friends as he asked Cynthia to marry him. Was he afraid she would have said no if they had been alone? I am.
Cynthia takes her mother and sister along to look at wedding gowns, while she has no intention of buying one off the rack, she needs to get ideas to give to her stylist. I really like Cynthia but her comment as she’s trying on dresses was a bit too much, she said, “I’m a model so I don’t know if these dresses are really pretty or if I’m just making them look pretty.” That comment wasn’t necessary.
Seemingly not the best time to have a mother / daughter heart to heart conversation, right there in the bridal salon Cynthia is getting her mother to open up a little bit about Cynthia’s childhood and the men in her life. It seems it wasn’t a Norman Rockwell painting as we learn that Cynthia’s step-father was an alcoholic and was abusive, both ladies tear up as they discuss it as mom is clearly uncomfortable with the subject.
Kandi is rarely shown outside of the recording studio these days and tonight is no different, Lawrence the hair stylist comes in to record some music and even the producers agree, he has a great voice. Lawrence isn’t the focus here, however, we hear more about Kim Zolciak and the problems that Kandi is having getting Kim to take her music seriously. I don’t know why Kandi is fixated on Kim taking this singing thing seriously, none of us take it seriously. With a voice like Kim’s why bother? She isn’t going to improve. Vocal lessons can fine tune a beautiful voice and make it better, you can train and teach notes and pitches to someone who already has a gift, Kim is a useless waste of everyone’s time!
Phaedra Parks really is a cartoon character, she cannot be a real woman. Some of the comments she makes and the faces she pulls off have got to be her attempts at acting. I think when she was recruited for Real Housewives, she misunderstood what was supposed to go down. Watching her prepare to leave town to have
labor induced was a circus. She clearly has no idea what to expect, she has a “friend who has 3 lovely children” come by to help, then later says, “I’m glad I hired …”. She paid this woman to help her prepare to go to the hospital, that is a little bit sad that she really doesn’t have a friend who would do it just out of friendship. And where on earth is Apollo? We haven’t seen this man in weeks, is he back in jail or what? Where is this man? He’s not at her baby shower, ok I get that, but we know he doesn’t work so where is he as his wife prepares to pack her bags to give birth?
I’ve already covered this woman’s lies about her due date, I know you don’t want to hear it again. She’s clearly covering for her shotgun wedding and she’s assuming that anyone really gives a damn that she was pregnant at her wedding. Phaedra, no one cares!
Tonight’s star of the show is clearly Sheree Whitfield, after taking delivery of her Aston Martin we learn that she is going to be performing a Rumba for Charity at the event, Dancing With The Stars of Atlanta. When the judge is critiquing her practice session Sheree explains in her talking head interview that she’s a busy lady and couldn’t possibly practice anymore. After all folks, Sheree is a mom and an Actress? Bravo has such a great sense of humor because immediately after Sheree tells us that she’s an actress, she also says, “they didn’t tell me I had to wear my dress at the dress rehearsal.” Possibly they thought that the words, “DRESS Rehearsal” would have given her the first clue being that she’s an actress and all.
Sheree’s big number was actually pretty good, I thought she did well considering as NeNe noted, “I’ve never even seen her snap her fingers”. I think NeNe was trying to tell us that Sheree has no rhythm , and again Bravo brings the funny as they show the other
ladies talking head interviews while Sheree performs her dance. Kandi yawns, Kim simply rolls her eyes and NeNe just laughs, no words are necessary but they had me cracking up! The editors clearly have a great sense of humor, unfortunately it is at Sheree’s expense as she’s this season’s joke. Between the editors showing the Aston Martin purchase just days after reports confirm it had been repossessed and the dancing fiasco, Sheree is not being painted in the best light. Add to that next week when she learns that her Doctor boyfriend is a fraud and Sheree is going to be livid. You can watch the preview as NeNe recognizes the fake doc on Bravotv.com.
It is nice to see Lisa Wu Hartwell and her husband making another cameo.
Sheree tells viewers that her charity goal was $5,000 and she was just about $400 short of that goal, hoping that her Real Housewives cast mates would give at least a couple of hundred each, she should have no trouble getting there.
Cut to the table and the ladies are preparing their donation envelopes, NeNe throws out two dollar amounts, $50 and $20, not exactly what would be expected at an event that is serving a full meal and cocktails. NeNe settles on $20 and when Kandi starts to
question that amount, NeNe gives Kandi a look that says, “don’t you dare make a fool of me by giving more” and even as Kandi is trying to sneak a few more dollars into the envelope, NeNe warns her not to even try it!
Sheree explains that she paid $1,500 for a table for her fellow housewives and their men so she was expecting a decent donation. It was surprising that NeNe and her husband having a full meal and drinks at a charity event, felt that $20 was appropriate, not only that but insisting that the other ladies give only the same amount. Kandi explains that she fully expected to donate substantially more and that she would typically expect to give at least $500 at an event like this.
As this event was Dancing With The Stars of Atlanta, one of the other “stars” happened to be Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy
Biermann. No doubt the star of the evening, he took the silver mirror ball home and an added bonus of gold digger. Kim goes backstage and fawns over the guy even asking to see his ass up close. Her classless flirting works on the big dope and he exchanges phone numbers with the wig wearing, chain-smoking, gold digging most famous mistress in Atlanta.
Kim asks viewers, “Duh? Would YOU call me?” I don’t think I need to answer that question but the big dumb football player calls her and apparently they are still dating to this day as Kim explains he was watching this episode right along with her. Oh I pity the big dumb ass football player. Does he think that Kim would be dating his cute butt if he didn’t have money?
NeNe also tweeted during last night’s episode, either The Donald gave her the night off or she’s already been eliminated from Celebrity Apprentice, here are a few of her thoughts:
A FAN: I would actually LOOOVE 2 c @NeNeLeakes on “Dancing With The Stars
@NeNeLeakes: U just might (Lynn: is she pulling a Teresa?)
@NeNeLeakes: U tweetie pies gotta start having viewing parties & invite me & my girls over!
@NeNeLeakes: Ok tweetie pies! Put the kids 2 bed & get ready 2 enjoy another new episode of the ATL Housewives tonite @ 10!
A FAN: U MURDERED that black dress
@NeNeLeakes I hate 2 say it out loud but I sure did
