I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta
BREAKING NEWS: Dispite her denials last night on Watch What Happens Live, today Life & Style Magazine announces that Kim admits she is pregnant.
NeNe Leakes, like many real housewives is realizing that if she and her husband divorce, she’s going to need some sort of income. Unlike most real housewives, she takes a meeting with people who can put her in front of the cameras as an entertainment reporter on Channel 11 news in Atlanta. NeNe has the right attitude and enthusiasm for the job, as she explains her aspirations. She knows the entertainment industry and even has some connections. She’s plans on interviewing some of the biggest names in the business and really only asks for a corner office with a window in return. The folks at Channel 11 offer NeNe a cubical and invite her to join a brainstorming session with all the players at the station.
NeNe tells us that she’s never held a real job before, these shows really do give kids the wrong idea about life, she made it look pretty easy. A job interviewing celebrities on the air for an Atlanta local news channel is not exactly in the cards for most housewives. NeNe plans on interviewing some of her neighbors including Monique’, but her dream interview, Tyler Perry is her goal and so the station pairs her with an award winning photojournalist and a producer as NeNe assures them that she’s not a diva. I hope that we see more of this storyline going forward. I can’t wait to see NeNe interviewing the big celebrities!
Sheree is featured in tonight’s episode beginning with a party for two of her children who are having major milestones in their lives, her son is beginning High School and her daughter is moving on to Jr. High School. We finally meet Sheree’s ex-husband Bob Whitfield, the man in season one who was supposed to provide Sheree with her seven-figure settlement in the divorce. I guess the ratings for The Real Housewives of Atlanta are drawing people who would probably never otherwise agree to appear on the show, and for good reason. Bob Whitfield is made out to be a jealous ex-husband as he’s shown trying to listen in on Sheree’s discussion about her new boyfriend, “Dr” Tiy-E. You can read about the fine doctor’s credentials here:
NeNe attends Sheree’s fun party even partaking in the go-karting but channeling Vicki from OC and screaming the entire time that she’s on the track. I hope that Bravo was exaggerating NeNe’s blood-curdling screams for the show because that was ridiculous! A grown woman screaming like a little girl can be most irritating.
Sheree also hosts a card game as the gang all gets together to play Spades. Lawrence, Kandi and her mom, Cynthia and Peter, Lisa and Ed, all get to meet Sheree’s new guy but it’s NeNe who recognizes him as the center of an Atlanta scandal years before. It seems the fine doctor who leads the group in prayer prior to playing cards was the subject of discussion in Atlanta when he claimed to be a psychologist and his credentials were questioned. The group questions his education and Tiy-e explains that he attended Southern Illinois University, Eastern Illinois University and then oops, we learn that he actually got his PhD on line. Kandi appropriately questions if getting a PhD on line is even possible.
Next week Sheree will actually confront the good Doctor about his education and claims of being a real doctor. Kandi visits Phaedra at the hospital in Augusta Georgia where Phaedra is preparing to give birth to her baby boy. During Kandi’s visit Phaedra’s doctor stops by to check on his patient and confirms what everyone already knew. Phaedra is in fact a full 40-weeks pregnant and is at full term. Doing the math quickly in her head, Kandi realizes now what everyone has been saying all along, Phaedra was pregnant when she got married… Kandi informs the group at Sheree’s card party that she heard the doctor with her own ears, restoring faith in Atlanta’s ob/gyn community. As much as Phaedra tried to sully her doctor’s reputation by spreading those rumors that the he planned on inducing labor at 7-months. I was starting to think that it was Phaedra’s doctor who got his license on line.
Kandi must have inked a sweet deal with Bravo as she’s filmed with friends and family at her clothing boutique, Tags with family and friends celebrating her birthday. Kandi’s now promoted her music, including her release of her new CD and her clothing boutique.
Lisa Wu Hartwell is seen here as well along with Sheree and Kim’s big entrance that included a large gift wrapped in pink with a gold engraved gift tag. For something that would have fit into a medium sized gift bag, the wig inside this large gaudy gift is another indication of just how self-centered Kim Zolciak can be. I’m all for Kandi losing that shocking pink Woody Woodpecker hair but this wig wasn’t the answer.
Cynthia and Kim took a back seat tonight as we see them only as guests at a party here and there but the star of tonight’s episode is new mommy, Phaedra Parks. I don’t know who this woman’s friends are but whoever has been whispering in her ear about childbirth seems to be a bit morbid. Phaedra talks about maternal….maternal….wait, maternal….death, yeah that’s the medical term, maternal death. What has this woman been drinking?
After weeks of being missing in action, Apollo makes his return to the show checking into a hotel in Augusta Georgia near the hospital. The couple is joined by Dr. Lue and his wife as they discuss the birth of Phaedra’s baby and enjoy the lovely snacks provided by the hotel. Dr. Lue asks the couple what their own birth weight was as Phaedra once again shows her ignorance and repeats that Apollo was born 3-months early and weighed over 8-lbs. Confirming that Phaedra has no clue about giving birth, Mrs. Lue gasps at the unlikely announcement of an 8-lb preemie.
Phaedra Parks’ facial expressions are priceless, she cannot hide her emotions about anything as we see her squirm and complain about absolutely everything, the size of the bed, the view from her window, her mother’s lack of mathematical skills….ok I made that last one up but it’s clear mom’s ignoring the obvious. Atlanta socialite, attorney Phaedra Parks was, in fact, pregnant when she got married breaking mom’s rules! The experience of childbirth is a bit different for every woman, I would imagine, but I have never heard the word death uttered so frequently in scenes of a live, healthy birth as with this crazy woman. Childbirth is the closest you’ll come to death, she explained. I was always told that a sneeze was the closest you’ll come to death but what do I know. I never knew I was so close to death as I gave birth, in fact, death never even crossed my mind once. This woman is morbid!
After several hours of blissful epidural laced labor, Dr. Lue concludes that Phaedra is going to need a C-section and begins to prepare her for the fact that she will be a mother in 30-minutes. Accompanied by her husband Apollo and her mother, Phaedra experiences the miracle of childbirth. She is obviously pissed off at the people who’ve previously described it to her as “beautiful”. It is nothing of the sort, in fact it involves blood and pain. Liars!!!
One can only hope that this baby is blessed with a compassionate, kind and caring father because I don’t see any maternal instincts in Phaedra. Writhing in pain, Phaedra is crying ouch and ooooh as the doctor delivers her baby boy, I almost cried witnessing this woman calling her newborn baby boy, “gross!” But most touching had to be when she described her baby as “Chinese looking” but assured us that it was definitely her baby because there were no other pregnant women in the room who had just given birth.
What a relief!

@Kandi: Response about royalties @Kandi http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/season-3/blogs/kandi-burruss/music-and-mistakes
No tweets from Atlanta’s newest housewives this week, both Cynthia and Phaedra limited their tweets to just one announcing the show would be on tonight.
As I write, none of the ladies blogs have yet to be posted, if you haven’t yet read last week’s, there are a few that were finally posted include Kim and Kandi but several are still missing.
Until Next Time…..
