I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Air Date 12/19/10
Before reading this blog, you must all go to IHJZFriendshipContract.com and sign my friendship contract…ok that’s a joke, I really don’t understand why idiot Kim took it so seriously. Kim told Cynthia that she was creeped out by the contract and even said she got sick to her stomach. Oh please! Lighten up Zolciak, and go bedazzle your microphone! Somebody should bedazzle Kim’s mouth, it won’t improve the sound coming out of it but at least it’ll sparkle. I love bling!
I don’t know what Kandi was thinking inviting Kim to open the show for her on Kandi’s Promo Tour, I think she saw the crowd at the White Party and thought they were all there just to see Kim. That party attracts thousands of people that would have attended with or without Kim Zolciak so she wasn’t the “draw”.
The ladies are all planning on congregating in Miami together for a few days while Kandi and Kim will perform there, and incorporate a bachelorette party for Cynthia at the same time. The Atlanta ladies definitely have some cause for complaint over at Bravo. Andy Cohen sends the New Jersey ladies to Italy, New York Housewives go to St. John and Morocco, why on earth does the top rated Atlanta Housewives only get to go to Miami?
Cynthia did some serious wedding planning this week viewing the venue with NeNe we learn that she’s going to be getting married between two dead dinosaurs at a museum. Between the friendship contract and the dead prehistoric animals not to mention Cynthia yelling when she learns NeNe shared the friendship contract with Kim, I’m surprised NeNe doesn’t run for the hills. Is it just me, or is Cynthia only normal when she’s not around NeNe?
Cynthia gets a call from a designer inviting her to model his swimsuits during Miami Swim Week but tells the designer that she’s not “bikini ready” and doesn’t feel comfortable wearing a 2-piece swimsuit but that she’ll rock the runway. Somehow I don’t believe that Cynthia wouldn’t rock a bikini but at least she didn’t ask the designer to sign a “Bikini Contract”. Poor Cynthia, she’s never going to live down the Friendship Contract thing.
We got to hear quite a bit of Kandi’s singing tonight, I love her voice. Kandi got very emotional singing a song about her ex-fiancé who was murdered last season, A.J. She got upset and shared that she doesn’t seem to be able to love again since she lost A.J. It was very sad and I really hope that Kandi finds a great guy and finds love again. Kandi released her latest CD this past week and it is available on her web site. http://kandionline.warnerreprise.com/
It is also available at Amazon.com and at Target Stores.
Kim tweeted this during the show last night dispelling rumors that Kim and Kandi are on the outs:
@Kimzolciak I have to tell ya all @Kandi album is sick….my absolute Favorite song is “How Could You” we are jammin in my house!!!!!!!!
Kandi tries a wig on during a rehearsal for her tour and is mortified when it falls off as she’s dancing, leave the wigs to Kim, Kandi trust me!
Phaedra calls and interrupts Kandi’s studio time but the ladies both decide they need a spa day and Kandi invites Phaedra to join her and the other ladies for a day of relaxation. Phaedra is in!
Kandi visits the new mom and their conversation turns to the other Housewives, Phaedra tells Kandi that Cynthia’s neck was rolling as she confronted Phaedra about the baby being full term. Kandi admits that she did confirm for the ladies that the doctor announced Phaedra’s pregnancy to be “Full Term”. But although Dwight got it wrong and embellished a whole lot, it was actually Kim who made comments about Phaedra and her baby’s due date that angered Phaedra. The alien baby comments came out of the wig wearing, chain smoking Cheetah stripper’s mouth. Kim’s alien comment came from the 5 ½ month gestational period that Phaedra was trying to pass off as full term but Dwight made up the part about the fingers and toes. Phaedra announces what we all already know, Kim’s going straight to hell.
I think Phaedra mentioned no less than five times that she has a husband, something Kim doesn’t have. A bit insensitive since she was talking to Kandi, who also doesn’t have a husband and whose ex-fiancé was recently killed. Phaedra is so proud of herself for finding a husband, was it that hard? Its not like she got the holy grail of husband’s, I doubt it would be that tough to find a buff ex-con with the IQ of a gnat to marry a wealthy attorney from Atlanta.
Phaedra seems very natural with the baby while Kandi visits, this is another Apollo free episode and we learned tonight on Watch What Happens Live that he does work but his description of his job was chopped and a bit unclear, he just kept repeating “turn-key” and “corporate”. I must say that I do like Phaedra a bit better since seeing her on Andy’s show, she was able to make fun of herself, she didn’t cop to lying about the baby’s due date but her husband explained that they’re “Private People” and threw in some pregnancy complications to throw viewers off track. Naturally the private couple decided to appear on the top rated Bravo reality show.
On Watch What Happens Live, we also learned that Phaedra was under doctor’s orders to skip her crazy baby shower and stay in bed. This tells me two things. The doctor is a better Medium than Beverly Hill’s Allison, the doctor foresaw the stupidity of that shower and tried to save his patient the embarrassment. It also tells me that Phaedra is a bit selfish putting the baby at risk in order to be Cinderella at her baby shower. That said, I liked that she could make fun of herself bringing Andy Cohen gourmet canned foods in response to her racist comments about white people preferring canned goods but added that she won’t hold it against him when Andy Cohen unnecessarily announced that he is white. She’s still not my favorite by any stretch of the imagination but she’s a little bit more human now. I think Phaedra is basically harmless and all of this southern belle, snobby attitude is put on for the cameras.
Kim Zolciak, on the other hand would have to erect an orphanage, donate her entire wardrobe to charity and singlehandedly save an entire retirement home full of residents from a fire, in order to possibly move up one step in my book. This is probably the most selfish woman in the world, she acknowledged tonight that Kandi was nervous and stressed about her tour but showed no sympathy, only discussed how it affected Kim’s life and preparation for the tour. Kim’s less than enthusiastic efforts at learning the dance moves and properly preparing for a professional tour is simply laziness and Kim’s lack of appreciation for all that Kandi has done for her. Kandi’s including Kim in her tour could not possibly have resulted in enough positive feedback to make it worthwhile, not for the amount of stress that Kandi has to endure.
Kim’s wardrobe preparation for the tour included her new stylist, Dale (he wasn’t her stylist last season) and not one, but two shoe stylists. The outfits that Kim tried on were the sluttiest, gaudiest things I’ve ever seen, naturally Kim loved them. I get that she needs to look good, look young and even sexy but she just looked cheap to me, especially with her boobs hanging out the sides!
Kim’s girls trying on mom’s shoes could have been a cute and an endearing scene of a mom with her daughters playing dress-up, but it was very strange when her daughter grabbed her boobs, sorry, it just was!
NeNe is working on her new show “Keeping It Real with NeNe” trying to get a high profile guest for her first interview. Jay-Z is in Europe, Toni Braxton’s not available, BowWow’s mommy apparently has no pull with her son, Serena William’s assistant blew her off but NeNe manages to get Jermaine Dupri, producer, songwriter and rapper.
NeNe jokes with her son and his friend about helping her get some big name talent, it was cute and NeNe was comfortable relating to the boys. The end of the scene has to be the best part, NeNe reviews the list of celebrities given to her by her boss to try to get them on her show, and NeNe says, “Oprah Winfrey? They lost their minds!” Hysterical!
Sheree went furniture shopping with her daughter who just got her first apartment with her boyfriend and unlike most new couples starting out don’t like the college frat house look including milk crates and hand-me-down furniture. Mommy Sheree agrees to buy her daughter a couch, and only a couch as her daughter falls in love with everything in the store. Once Sheree chooses the couch that she likes, ignoring her daughter’s favorite, the young lady leaves mom to pay the bill. Sheree then goes back through the store choosing an entire apartment full of furniture to surprise her daughter. Sheree reminds us no less than three times that her daughter likes the finer things, just like her mom.
I know what you’re thinking, that’s a whole show worth of a blog already, right? It’s not over yet, the ladies all meet at the spa and drama is created but did you notice that it was actually Sheree who brought up all of the taboo subjects that started the battles?
Sheree brings up the Friendship Contract and Cynthia defends herself against Kim repeating again and again that it was a joke but Kim continues to make a production of it while NeNe just laughs hysterically. NeNe acknowledged that she was proud of Cynthia for defending herself and I have to agree, Kim thought that Cynthia would be an easy mark but Kim looked like an idiot blowing the whole thing out of proportion. Who told Sheree about it?
Sheree asks Phaedra how her baby is doing and another brawl breaks out.
Just to make my night even more wonderful, Phaedra goes after Kim for her comments about Phaedra’s baby and her due date. As Kim rattles off her resume and reminds everyone that she went to school and is educated, I’m sure all the housewives were thinking the same thing as I was:
Columbia the country?
Phaedra reminds Kim that it is none of her business and asks to see Kim’s Registered Nursing degree, I think we’d all like to see that. Apparently Phaedra follows up with this request to see Kim’s credentials next week, can’t wait!
Kim interviews that everyone was talking about the controversary that is Phaedra’s due date and couldn’t understand why Phaedra focused her attack on Kim. Kim announces her brilliant theory that it must be because if she went after NeNe, she would choke her, Sheree would pull her hair and Cynthia would just agree and then make her sign some f**ked up contract. I don’t suppose Kim considered that Phaedra focused on Kim because Kim has the biggest mouth and criticized Phaedra more than the others?
I think NeNe said it best, obviously Phaedra isn’t going to fess up and admit that she lied about her due date, Phaedra interviews that Kim has some 1950’s attitude but in actuality I think it was more Phaedra’s old fashioned attitude that was in question. Phaedra’s refusal to admit that she was pregnant when she got married is really primitive. Just tell the truth! No one really cares.
Cynthia’s bachelorette party should be a hoot, the Southern Belle and Church-going new mother seems to have the connections to get some really hot entertainment for the party, Phaedra informs the women that she knows a guy who knows a guy that can get a male stripper hung like a fire hose and has the unique ability to satisfy himself with his own mouth. Oh Phaedra, we know you were a wild woman in your single, college days, who are you kidding?
One of Kandi’s fans apparently is a crackerjack investigator and tweeted the link to Kandi:
TO: @Kandi ….THUS THE MAN WHO CAN S*CK HIS OWN D**K!!! http://yfrog.com/h3317rj <- He can do that???
Oh our dear Ramona, she decided to tweet during the show last night, it seems she ruffled some wigs down in Atlanta and managed to piss off the uber sensitive pregnant Kim Zolciak, take a look:
@RamonaSinger: Ok tweet went off rhoatlanta on @Kandi and @NeNeLeakes my favs maybe I’ll tweet during the show
@RamonaSinger: How is @Kandi going to handle going on tour with Kim
@RamonaSinger: Wow I was never so lucky as Sheree daughter I had to buy all my own furniture!!

NeNe tweeted just a bit but managed to slam her fellow housewives once again. Trouble is, it’s tough to tell who she’s snarking at here, could be Kim or Kandi. She also had not so nice words for Phaedra the last time she was on Watch What Happens Live so it could be Phaedra too, here’s what NeNe had to say:
@NeNeLeakes: OMG!!! I’m n my car rushing home 4 the show! I’m missing it! What’s going on yall?
@NeNeLeakes: Some of these housewives of the A are sooooooo phoney! They talk shit then apologize! Birds of a feather flop together
@NeNeLeakes: Is there a surgery 2 make lips smaller? LOL! I know somebody that needs it so let me know
@NeNeLeakes: Keepin it real wit Nene! Bringing no drama hot mama
@NeNeLeakes: We got 2 get a new housewife! Enough with the fakeness! Yall any ladies that’s real & fun?
Cynthia and NeNe seemed to be fairly close while filming the show but they must have gone their separate ways after filming, I suppose there could be something more that happens this season that split up the legally binding friendship. There were rumors that NeNe was very late for Cynthia’s wedding and then demanded that Cynthia’s make-up artist apply NeNe’s make up delaying the wedding even further. NeNe denies this claim but it sure does seem as though something happened between Cynthia and NeNe.
Cynthia tweeted but only a total of four tweets during last night’s show, and one of those four was announcing that she would be tweeting during the show…
@CynthiaBailey10: Whose ready to watch the RHOA? I will be tweeting, so here we go! Enjoy!
@CynthiaBailey10: What was that? I’m being mean?
@CynthiaBailey10: U guys r great. Spa scene with the girls coming up.
@CynthiaBailey10: Rolling my neck? Shut up.
Another jam packed Atlanta episode followed by Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live featuring Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo.
Phaedra seemed natural and relaxed in the hot seat improving her reputation just a bit and expanding on Sheree, Cynthia, Kandi and even Kim who’ve all said that they like Phaedra ok but that her on screen persona isn’t the real Phaedra. They seemed to think that she was acting a bit for the show and putting on a Southern Belle character for Bravo’s cameras. Phaedra’s comments are what they are, she said what she said and I believe that she does have a bit of an elitist attitude, she thinks she’s better than some people including her husband. Maybe I’m forgiving her a bit because there are bigger fish to fry in Atlanta, Kim needs an attitude adjustment a lesson in humility and a whole lot of empathy.
Phaedra announced on WWHL that the women were not very nice to her, she even called them “mean girls”. I wish she had excluded Kandi from that statement because it sure seemed as though Kandi went out of her way to welcome Phaedra to the Housewives Sorority.
Finally, did Andy Cohen seem a bit miffed to anyone else last night? He got really testy when he thought that Phaedra described him as “High” until she corrected him and said that she called him “Hot” rather than High but even as they moved on, Andy looked at the camera and was clearly agitated when he repeated, “I’m not high!”. A bit defensive about that, wasn’t he? I’m just sayin…
Until Next Time…
