I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta Jan 10, 2011
Well Sheree should start saving those Bravo checks, unless she’s got a big storyline coming up, she really has been a back seat player in Atlanta and could go the way of Lisa Wu Hartwell. We saw Sheree only twice tonight very briefly. Sheree was “Housewives Jogging” with Phaedra which consists of any two housewives simply walking wearing workout attire and talking. The second Sheree sighting was at Phaedra’s Sip and See Party. Sheree’s time on the show could be ticking down.
Ya gotta love Phaedra and her “Southern Traditions”. She and her husband Apollo hold a party for their family, friends and Kim Zolciak allowing them to have a cocktail, see the baby but never touch him. Germies, you know… I have to say it was probably a good idea not to let the chain-smoking, wig wearing selfish bitch to touch baby Ayden, I mean, he probably hasn’t had all of his shots yet, who knows what he could catch from Kim Zolciak.
One thing you cannot deny, WOW, that kid is adorable. Dwight acts as doorman/announcer for the Sip and See Party and is a bit creepy when he calls Phaedra, Apollo and the baby, “The Royal Family”. He’s no creepier than when he opens the door to the ALWAYS late Kim Zolciak and offers her a cocktail. I have to give Phaedra credit for trying to clear the air with Kim, although the two women talked, Kim presented Phaedra with her nursing certificate that her daughter printed from the internet, Phaedra openly talked about her husband spending 6-years in jail. Apollo was one of those innocent guys in jail, they don’t have many of those.
Phaedra and Kim seemed to make peace although clearly they don’t trust each other as Kim interviews telling viewers, “she lies”. I was waiting for the lightening to strike Kim down for that, Atlanta’s biggest liar calling someone else a liar? It was clear that Phaedra lied about her due date and we all know why, who really cares, if it makes her feel better it was a harmless lie, time to move on.
Cynthia and her fiance Peter have some seeming insurmountable problems to overcome before they marry, the stress of a failing business and money problems could put an end to the wedding plans, but due to some leaks that came out of Atlanta a few months ago, we know that the wedding does go on. I can understand now why Bravo was so upset about the nuptials getting out, it is hard to build the drama when we already know the outcome.
Now we know who to call if we need couples therapy, an actor can “act” like a therapist and get the job done. Maybe it is less expensive? It was clear that the couple had very different feelings when it comes to money. Cynthia had invested over $25,000 in Peter’s restaurant, Uptown and would like her money back while Peter feels that a married couple’s money is co-mingled anyway so there will be no paying her back. I guess Peter feels that Cynthia will reap the benefits financially when the restaurant is successful. Unfortunately we know that didn’t happen either and the restaurant folded.
Cynthia wanted Peter to sell the restaurant while there is still something there to sell, sounds like Peter should have listened. I wonder what job Peter has created for himself now?
Keeping It Real with NeNe, this really is a perfect gig for the outgoing housewife. She clearly struggled through with a tough subject, Jermaine Dupris clearly wanted no part of NeNe or this interview at the beginning but NeNe won him over and he came out of his shell in the end. Not everyone could have turned that around. Shame on NeNe for not doing her homework, it only made her job harder and made Jermaine close off even more in the beginning but she made it work.
This was part of NeNe’s 6-part series to see how the segments will go over in Atlanta, I don’t think that the series continued so possibly they weren’t as popular as they’d hoped, or NeNe chose to move on but she said that her goal was to get a national gig, possibly a talk show of some kind. With so many talk show’s failing, even some very big names who’ve tried the talk show thing, I’m not sure that is the best route to take for NeNe.
Kim was preparing for her departure, a 7-day tour with Kandi and Kim will be the opening act. Kim’s two daughters enter and Kim reminds us that her girls will be completely fine being cared for by her mother while she is away. The youngest daughter really didn’t seem to care at all but did ask why her mom was going on tour, stating the obvious, “You’re not even that famous” to mom and then waved goodbye and left the room. I love that kid! Brielle, Kim’s oldest daughter broke down and cried but not because mom was leaving for 7-days but because Kim’s assistant Sweetie would be joining Kim rather than staying with Kim’s daughters. That is telling.
Although Kim called Sweetie a “fat ass” and a “bitch” it is clear that Sweetie keeps things together for the Zolciak family.
The only thing more annoying than Kelly Bensimon’s daily photo tweets is Kim Zolciak screeching “SWEETIEEEEE” at the top of her lungs to summon her assistant. Kandi and the tour manager, Don Juan, had their hands full as Kim complained about everything from the military like schedule, to the bus accommodations to the fact that she can’t smoke on the bus.
Never a shortage of idiotic statements flying out of Kim’s mouth, she actually said that she KNEW that Big Poppa never cheated on her. As Don and Kandi mentioned that Kim’s song, “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing”, may be a bit risqué for some of the audiences, since it was a song about a married man giving his mistress a diamond ring to pacify her. Kim notes that since Don and Kandi didn’t know her when she met Big Poppa, they didn’t understand. What’s to understand Kim? You had a long term affair with a married man and your song says it all. Kim’s ridiculous outrage about the situation made no sense, and her stating that Poppa never cheated is just as idiotic. Thanks for the chuckles Bravo!
Kim made a deal with the bus driver, if she let him drink all he wanted, he would let her smoke on the bus whenever she wanted. This woman is a genius, I’m surprised Nasa hasn’t called yet.
Kandi’s mom and aunt’s arrive to watch the show and Kim receives flowers and Champaign from her new boyfriend, Kroy as the show draws nearer. Kim prays for the 2nd time in the episode that her wig won’t fall off. I, on the other hand was praying that it would. What makes Kim Zolciak think that God has time to worry about her wig or her B-12 shot?
In the end, Kim didn’t do the dance routine that was prepared for her, she chain-smoked and drank alcohol before the performance but the crowd seemed to like her. There’s no accounting for bad taste, sorry Charlotte, North Carolina, but what the hell were you thinking?
For Kandi’s sake, I’m glad the first stop of the tour was a success, with all that she is putting up with having Kim Zolciak with her on this tour, she deserves to have a great show at the very least.
Next Sunday is a super-sized Real Housewives of Atlanta and NeNe will join Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live along with Iman from The Fashion Show.
Thursday night after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Camille Grammer joins Andy, that should consist of some interesting questions.
Andy also announced that The Real Housewives of Atlanta are filming their reunion this week, get your questions over to Andy for the Atlanta ladies right away.
Until Next Time….
