I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta – Reunion Part 2

I Hate Jill Zarin   The Real Housewives of Atlanta – The Reunion Part 2

You guys are never going to believe this, if you missed it, it is going to shock you to your core.  Ms. Phaedra Parks was indeed pregnant when she got married, I know what you’re staying to yourself, you’re saying “self, I never would have guessed”.  I think the Entertainment Attorney learned a valuable lesson that every Bravo Housewife learns at one point or another.  You can’t get away with anything.

I have to give her kudos though (thanks Ramona) she did twist a few things and make some excuses, she told some stories but in the end, Cohen found the right question, one that five other Atlanta Housewives never asked but were dying to ask, “were you pregnant when you got married?”   Andy gets the prize as Phaedra admitted she was about a month pregnant when she got married.  You know, just a little pregnant.

Not since The Real Housewives of New York reunion when Sonja was asked about her sex life did we hear Andy Cohen asking a housewife about sex but Kandi opened the door.  Her Kandi Koated Nights show talks about little else and I think Andy liked to make NeNe squirm a bit.  With the exception of NeNe, the ladies all have an impressive freak number ranging from 7 to 9, they’re all pretty freaky in the bedroom.  That’s a bit more information than I needed.

Kandi admitted that she’s no longer celibate but refused to reveal any details, I had to agree with Kim the urinating discussion, I could have lived without.  Kandi is planning to take her sex talk a step further, possibly writing a book or putting her name on a line of adult toys.

It seems that Andy has to ask everyone he knows if they like to play for the other team, in this case he implies that Kandi may have the hots for Kim and that’s why she’s so eager to help with her music career.  Kandi assures Andy that she’s not swimming in the lady pond.

Sheree just missed the cut off to be nominated or an Oscar, apparently you actually have to act in a film during the previous year to throw your hat in the ring.  The role that we watched Sheree audition for and win apparently was a bit of a scam as they don’t have the funding to actually make the movie.  Next year Sheree, hang in there, next year is your year.

Sheree cleared up the car repossession rumors, as we all read the newsflash articles and photos of Sheree’s car being towed away.  Apparently her attorney wanted to get paid and she didn’t want to pay him so he put a lien on her car and took it.  That bastard!

Cohen asked NeNe about her being a bit tight about donating to Sheree’s Dancing With the Atlanta Stars event.  I think that sometimes NeNe forgets that cameras are rolling and viewers can see everything that goes on.  NeNe claims that she didn’t know it was a charity event.  Ok, I could possibly buy that but she added that she thought Sheree simply needed to reach that goal and her $20 would be enough to get her there.  Apparently NeNe thought that the charity should pick up her dinner and her husband’s dinner.  NeNe didn’t just stiff the charity and Sheree, since Sheree paid for that table to attend and partake of all the food, but NeNe insisted that no one else at the table make her look bad by giving more than she gave.

Sheree told NeNe, “but I paid for the table”.  NeNe replied, “well I didn’t know that”.  Who did you think paid for you to enter the event and eat the meal?  Wow!

NeNe had a bad season.  She started out ok but things went downhill fast.

On to the kids, Andy played some clips of the Atlanta Housewives with their children, as he pointed out they’re all mom’s and with the exception of Phaedra, they’ve all been single moms at one point in their lives.  They have such different parenting styles but with the exception of NeNe’s son, they all seem to be pretty good kids.

Andy did not ask NeNe about her son’s arrest but he asked NeNe if Bryson was about to become a father, her response, “you’ll have to ask him”.  What?  I’m sure you heard NeNe, it was all over the internet, you never bothered to ask him if it was true?  I realize that you’re not willing to be his friend, but wouldn’t a parent ask that question?

Kandi got a bit choked up telling us about her daughter Reilly’s father and his absence in the child’s life.  Kandi clearly hurts watching her daughter become what she described as “hardened” when it comes to having a dad.  Reilly became close to Kandi’s fiancé before he was killed and the child seems to be very guarded and protective of her feelings toward a father.  Completely understandable but heartbreaking for a mother to watch.

Kim is in a similar situation to Kandi’s as her daughter’s father seems to have washed his hands of Kim’s children and while Sheree’s ex-husband was around a bit, she recently got a text message informing her of his move to Los Angeles.

Cynthia seems to have the best situation with her ex and baby daddy, he lives in New York but is devoted to their daughter.  All of the ladies noted how great he is with the child as a clip ran of father and daughter dancing at Cynthia’s wedding.

Phaedra was let off the hook and not asked about the birth of her child and some of the comments that she made.  Her announcement that she will be whipping her child if he looks at her sideways and the complaining that she’s tied down to “him”, her calling the baby gross after it was born and saying “it” looked Chinese, all of these things were completely ignored by Andy Cohen.  I was curious to know if little Ayden has had his first whipping yet or if she’s waiting until his first birthday?  (no emails, it’s a joke!)

Phaedra also played off her due date lies blaming the other ladies as they just wanted to gossip about her, they weren’t really concerned about her well being.  Well Phaedra, if you’d answer the simple question of when the baby is due and actually tell them that you are having some medical issues, maybe they wouldn’t be gossiping about your lies.  Food for thought.  I thought we heard that baby Ayden was born in May, Phaedra got married on November 1st, you do the math.

According to NeNe her way of  “black parenting“ is the way to go, I guess that’s her version of tough love.  Yet the deadline she gave her son for having a job and moving out of her house had come and gone and Bryson remains a resident of Casa NeNe.  NeNe claims that she lay down law, she is a parent, not a friend (Like Kim is with her daughters).  NeNe doesn’t miss a chance to dig at Kim, it only makes NeNe look like a petty, jealous child.

Kim claims that she is a friend and parent, she sets boundaries, but by also being a friend, the girls are more comfortable talking to her about anything, there is a time to be parent and a time to be friend.

When Kim starts making sense, something is wrong, but she did make sense.

NeNe’s son Bryson seems scared of his mother, he clearly doesn’t feel comfortable talking to her about anything.  He closes down and clams up during their “talks”, their talks are more like NeNe screams in his face and he stares at her like a deer in the headlights.

NeNe is obviously having problems with her son but seemed to be ok with becoming a grandmother, as she points out that at least Bryson wasn’t a “teen father”, he’s an adult now.  I guess the fact that he doesn’t have a job or his own place to live in order to care for the child is irrelevant.

With a few single housewives in Atlanta, Andy asked Kim if her man Kroy had any teammates that may be a good match for Sheree, Kim seemed to think it was possible.  What about Kandi?

Andy did talk a bit about Phaedra’s husband Apollo and his time behind bars.  He was charged and found guilty of racketeering and spent 6-years in prison.  Phaedra announced that Atlanta is haterville and that NeNe wouldn’t lay off this man the entire time they filmed.  NeNe claims she likes Apollo, but if she claims to not even know Phaedra, how can she know she likes Phaedra’s husband?  Does she even know him?
Phaedra claimed that “NeNe stayed on him more than anyone.”  I could see that.

Andy didn‘t bother to ask Phaedra about all of her comments about the baby, but he did ask her about her photo shoot with a pickle.  Really Andy?  Who cares?

After reading Kandi’s blog outlining exactly what happened with the royalties/profits from the song Tardy For The Party, and reading Kim’s response to the blog, I was interested to hear what would be said with the two ladies in the same room.

Kim is full of crap when it comes to this entire thing, as Andy asked her three times if she felt she was more responsible for this song being a hit than Kandi was, Kim never answered the question.  Her response, “I don’t want the money, its not about the money, Kandi can have all the money”.  So why then does Kim still have all the money?

We heard Kim’s view on the making of a hit song, Kim said that the writer and producer spend a few hours in the studio making the song sound good but it is the “artist” who sells it and does all the work.  Yet Kim didn’t repeat that while sitting next to the songwriter/producer, she only continued to play dumb (ok she’s not playing) and act like she doesn’t understand how all that complicated business stuff works.

Yes, Kim is dumb as a box of rocks but anyone could get a calculator and split profits three ways, yet Kandi hasn’t gotten her share of the verbal agreement while Kim continues to collect all the money.  In the meantime, the song that could possibly give Kim another hit single, “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing” continues to collect dust because Kim is too stupid to agree to a deal with Kandi.

Kandi got choked up again when discussing this, I don’t think that it is about the money with Kandi, she’s clearly not starving or being put out in the street.  Kandi thought that Kim was her friend and after all Kandi had done for Kim, I think she expected Kim to do the right thing and not screw over a friend.  Kandi will learn, Kim is the most selfish woman on the planet.  Kandi won’t see any of that money.

When Andy finally held Kim’s feet to the fire, point blank question that she had no choice but to answer, having asked it three times, Cynthia chimes in and lets Kim off the hook.  I think I literally screamed, “Shut up Cynthia!” at my TV screen.

Even as the pregnant Kim watched her “friend” Kandi sit next to her in tears, hurt over this song deal and the fact that Kim screwed her out of thousands of dollars, Kim showed no emotion, simply said she understood Kandi was hurt but took no responsibility for hurting her friend.  Run Kandi, run like the wind!

Recapping the bus tour incident with NeNe was just as frustrating as any disagreement with NeNe, as Kim pointed out, NeNe will just speak louder and non-stop yet her points make no sense.  NeNe was clearly looking for something, anything to fight with Kim about and she was able to latch onto the fact that Don and Sweetie would be staying in the house with the Housewives during their “girls weekend”.  NeNe simply used that to start an argument.

We’ve seen Andy restrain Housewives both verbally and physically yet he never asks NeNe to remain silent and let anyone else talk.  We watched as he silenced all of the New York housewives in order to let Kelly Bensimon tell her side of the story yet he continues to allow Kim and NeNe to yell at each other at the same time so that nothing can be heard.  I think maybe Andy is concerned for his safety as well, being thrown by Teresa Giudice and being thrown by NeNe Leakes could have two completely different outcomes for Mr. Cohen.

NeNe’s side of the story was completely different, she claims that Kim started yelling and calling NeNe a bitch which is the only reason NeNe got loud and jumped out of her seat.  Once again NeNe forgets that cameras are rolling and the audience can see who started the fight and exactly what happened.  Kim expressed her concern over her safety around NeNe and while I’d love to see a cage match between these two women, Kim wouldn’t stand a chance.  Sheree explained her issues with NeNe and reiterated that NeNe does get in your face and screams repeating the same thing over and over.  I can see why Kim would be concerned for her well being around Nene.  I think some anger management courses are in order for NeNe Leakes.

At one point or another throughout the season, NeNe had issues with every one of the other housewives and while she cleared the air with Cynthia and the two ladies remain friends, it can’t possibly be all of the other ladies who are wrong.  NeNe had a rough year and I’m going to predict that she won’t return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta next season.  Rumors are that she is moving to Los Angeles once her divorce is final.

NeNe apologized to her family, friends and four of the five housewives for her behavior this season.  She refused to apologize to Kim, yet the behavior that she apologized for was mostly directed at Kim.  Makes perfect sense!

Probably the best question of the night, Andy asked all the ladies why no one will come out and just say that Kim cannot sing?  I’ll say it, I’ve been saying it for years yet no one seems to be willing to say it directly to Kim.  <crickets>  No one was willing to step up so Andy asked, “well, would anyone like to defend Kim’s singing?”  More crickets but finally Phaedra chimed in stating that “Kim’s not a vocalist but she has curb appeal”.  Laughter all around.

I completely understand what Phaedra was trying to get across, Kim can’t sing, that is obvious but she still attracts fans to come and hear her sing.  What Phaedra describes as “curb appeal” is simply Housewives fans wanting to see Kim perform.  They want to see what crazy outfit she’ll wear and hear for themselves what a lousy singer she is, they want to see her dance around on stage half naked making a complete fool of herself.

I think it is similar to going to a book signing or “an evening with” any one of the housewives, Kim has fans, I haven’t met any but clearly she does have fans.  The biggest problem with Kim is that she doesn’t see it for what it is, I think in her head even if she wasn’t a housewife, people would still come to hear her sing.  Kim calls herself a “pop star” and takes all of this way too seriously.

Kim went around Kandi and created a song called, “Google Me” with a completely different production team and it bombed.  Kim may be a lot of things but a good businesswoman, she is certainly not!  She had a sure fire hit on her hands with Kandi’s song “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing” but she’s too stubborn to sign the deal, so that song remains on the shelf.

Finally a montage of Kim and NeNe’s friendship and fun times together was shown and Andy noted that he watched Kim as she watched the screen.  Kim smiled and admitted she held a soft spot in her heart for NeNe and wishes her well as the two ladies did have some fun times together.  NeNe refused to admit the same.  NeNe feels only hatred.

So what’s next for each of the ladies?  Andy asks and they answer.

Sheree is moving forward with She By Sheree, her clothing line.  Phaedra is opening a funeral parlor?  Kandi continues making music and was too modest to announce that she toured with Fantasia after filming but also plans on writing a book on sex advice and coming out with a line of adult sex toys.  Cynthia mentioned possibly opening a modeling school, great idea!  Kim will be having a baby but claims that her wig line is finally ready to be launched.  Kim’s wig line was ready to be launched during season one and again during season two, I’ll believe it when I see it.  NeNe reminded viewers that she will be on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice and does well being paid to host parties.
Some recent tweets from the Atlanta crew.

Kim’s baby daddy, Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons tweeted this:

@biermann77:  Come downstairs after a great massage and @Kimzolciak has made me grilled cheese and tomato soup #sosweet

I’m sure he tweeted this himself, I doubt Kim Zolciak or one of her daughters tweeted that for him, I notice he uses hash tags like #sosweet  all the time.

@NeNeLeakes:  I worship your name lord! I need your presents n my life. No weapons formed against me shall prosper! I’M BLESSED

Is she looking for gifts?  Like a new watch or maybe some cozy pajamas?

@NeNeLeakes:  Everybody has had something 2 say about the other @ some point. It’s all good because I feel like these girls r my publicist so let’em talk

@KimZolciak:  I’m glad u all enjoyed the reunion I will miss cutting up every Sunday! Xxoo thx u for ur support I appreciate all of you!

@NeNeLeakes:  Thanks 4 Watchin Housewives Of Atlanta this season! I’m soooooooo happy it’s over! Catch me on Celebrity Apprentice March 6

And so ends Atlanta for another season. Farewell!

    Am I first to comment? Now to read.

    • Cheri says:

      Good recap. I think Nene has serious anger issues and it was fully on display during the whole reunion. I think she is mad at the world right now and needs someone to focus that anger on and it is Kim who is getting it. She needs therapy badly

      • Powell says:

        Nene’s biggest problems are that she is still mad at Kim for not putting her on “Tardy..” and the popularity Kim has gained even though she can’t sing and no matter what NeNe says she is still very angry with Greg. Since Greg couldn’t bring himself to sit down and talk about their marriage, NeNe needed to yell and scream she used Kim as her target for both things.
        When NeNe got on the bus with Kim and Kandi and at the hotel NeNe was fine, but as soon as they got to the club and Kim performed and NeNe saw that Kim has fans, NeNe couldn’t take that. To cover for her jealousy, all of a sudden the way Kim spoke to Sweetie offended her and she had to take a stand. All that yelling NeNe did was very little about Sweetie.

    • debbie says:

      Thanks for the recap, Lynn. I didn’t really enoy this season of RHOA and I’m totally over Nene and her rants.. Didn’t bother watching the reunion, simply waited for your blog. By the way, I waited until 11am EST today. I didn’t enjoy my morning coffee nearly as much as I could have.

      • Nancy says:

        Dear Lynn,
        Do you have any idea how many smiles are produced every day because of you? You are my Prozac. THANK-YOU!

  2. VincenzoNewYork says:

    I think it’s time to retire The Real Housewives of Atlanta. They need to wait a year or two, and then re-cast it, in order to keep it interesting.

    • VincenzoNewYork says:

      Thanks Lynn for the recap!!! I can’t wait to read what you thought of Miami!!
      It was very sneaky to air the first episode last night. I guess I won’t watch it tomorrow when it officially premieres.

  3. housewifeaddict says:

    Hmm good blog – but why do you think Ring didn’t mean a thing would be a sure hit. I’m still convinced Tardy was a fluke.

    • Rabble Rouserh says:

      I think so too, the novelty has worn off.

      Unfortunately, I think Kim is going to need a few more failures under her belt to come to the realization that she is not a signer, she doesn’t have “a God given talent (vocally)” and that she is a living breathing parody.

      • Powell says:

        That’s exactly what I’ve been saying. As soon as Kim gets a few more flops she’ll realize that she is no “Pop Star” and that she didn’t know how lucky she was to work with the genius of Kandi. Kandi is the ONLY reason Kim has a following. If Kim keeps being stubborn and not pay Kandi what sh e is entitled to she will continue to have flops, will be “a one hit wonder” and people will be saying “Kim who?”

  4. HD says:

    Thanks so much for the recap. I as ususal fell asleep and dreamed that Tom Colichhio was having a torid affair with Marcel. It was a wild dream and I missed the show.

    Great recap! I did catch the small scene between Kandi and Kim online about the song and the royalties, etc. Kim is a manipulative, greedy woman. And Kandi it appears has learned this the hard way but indeed she did learn which is why Google Me bombed and The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing is on the shelf. I think I learned YEARS AGO that the person who writes/produces the song is the one who gets the most money. Duh! You don’t make money as a performer until you get REALLY big like Madonna, Beyonce, etc.

    I agree. I don’t think Nene will be back. Sheree needs to go. Cynthia, doesn’t matter. Phaedra is entertaining because of her lies and her over the top ways, Kim I can do without but she will be back, Kandi is my favorite although I want to tell her to wake up sometimes.

    • error404 says:

      even then, people like Madonna and Beyonce didn’t get really rich until they wrote and co-produced their own stuff.

      I think Kim is trying to fit the Britney mold: get filthy rich for doing nothing, but she doesn’t have gullible tweens spoiled with too much allowance to buy her crap.

      • Powell says:

        You are so right. Britney isn’t a singer either, although WAY beyond anything Kim can do. Britney makes her money off of concerts and merchandise. Jessica Simpson isn’t a singer either but a brilliant business woman. She made over $750mill in 2010 and is expected to make over $1bill in 2011. My point is that Britney and Jessica have talents and a head for business. This is not Kim’s forte.

  5. imj says:

    After watching the reunion im convinced Kim is slightly diabolical. She played dumb when asked about Tardy but she knows damn well that she kept count of the money that she earned from that song. Kim is all about money. She should have cut Kandi a check a long time ago. Kandi wrote, produced and sung background on the song. I would say for all that work, she is entitled to half of the proceeds of that song. I noticed that, in a way, Nene is right. Kim does like to play the victim. She was so wrong in that situation and Kandi should have called her on her bs. Kim is a super manipulator and was doing her best to dodge the questions Andy presented in that situation.

  6. error404 says:

    I think Phaedra said “curve appeal” … a pun on curb appeal and Kim’s fake bazooka boobs.

    There must be a market for Khandi’s sex talk, cause she keeps on doing it, even though she headed straight for the “Jil Zarin award for shameless shilling” of crap. Jeeze.

    Poor dumb Phaedra hasn’t figured much out has she. She said that sex talk was ok at a dinner with friends but not in public, like in a bar. ROTFLAMO! Can one of her fans please explain to her that when a dinner is filmed and broadcast on TV, it reaches millions worldwide. People who are listening to every word, not people in a noisy crowded room talking to others about other things. DUM dumb.

    There is so much we don’t know, so it’s hard to judge.

    Sheree: we have no idea what her lawyer did or didn’t do, or if he deserved that $. It too bad she lost her case, but I’ll reserve judgement for a more clear cut example of her not paying bills.

    Parenting: I don’t think we get the full picture. What we do see from Kim is downright scary IMHO. I think it was perhaps Kim Z Kim R was talking about when she screamed “Guess who drinks all damn day long!” Good Moms don’t have white wine with breakfast IMHO, but that’s just me. Khandi seemed none too impressed with Kim’s “boundaries” regarding the pool incident, and when your kid doesn’t care if you leave, but sobs uncontrollable because your assistant is leaving, red flags go up for me, but that’s just me. When you talk to your kid about dating, and she dismisses your advice giving you a flippant dismissal regarding your own dismal record with dating, it’s not a sign of good parenting to me.

    Kim. vs, Nene: Kim said the fight was about other stuff. What? Seriosuly, I’m dying to know. Was it just a lame “Nene is jealous of me!” reference. Or is there something else. They both said the fight began way before what we saw as “the fight” but again, Andy dropped the ball and did 0 follow up to all of the references.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Error, you make excellent points about Kim’s parenting skills. I think you’re absolutely right on point with every word.

      I tend to sometimes just look at the final outcome, Kim’s daughters seem have turned out alright…so far, they’re still young so we won’t really know for a few years if Kim’s poor parenting skills have a negative affect on their lives.

      Kim says all the right things while sitting on that couch, but she certainly does not set a good example.

      • Brigid A. says:

        Lynn, thanks for the recap! I’m pretty done with Atlanta and the reunion offered nothing new or interesting. Kandi and Kim’s song battles have endured the entire season and Kandi’s emotion spilled over into the reunion. I don’t understand why she can’t get legal resolution over this issue. I just don’t care anymore!

        Next season will probably be all about Kim/Kroy and the baby unless she gets her own spin-off show. I do like Cynthia but it seems doubtful her storyline with Peter will create enough drama for Bravo.

        • error404 says:

          I think the legal part of it is that Khandi stupidly did a handshake deal with a friend instead of anything kosher. They agreed to 33.3% each, but then Kim stiffed her and is playing dumb. I’d cry too if I were Khandi. She a grammy winner who trusted a con artist whom she thought was a friend. Now she’s been made to look a business fool on national tv, scammed by a nurse who can’t carry a tune.

          • Powell says:

            You’re so right but I believe Kandi has learned her leasing and Kim won’t ever have another hit without Kandi. So I feel that Kandi has come out on top with this one because she won’t let it happen again and now she can use her time for real artists, and she won’t have to use “Auto Tune”.

        • error404 says:

          IDK: will Cyn & Pete be happy ever after, or be divorced by the end of next season? I think it has the potential to be a good storyline, on paper at least.

          Surely it’s a better storyline than Sheree shopping for furniture with a rubber check, or Phaedra throwing Aeeiideeyyynn a first birthday party complete with Mom and baby arriving in a pumpkin shaped carriage drawn by 16 white stallions. Maybe Bravo will cross promote and broker an arranged marriage of two vowel heavy kids: Phaedra’s Aiiiyyden and Teresa’s Auuiieeannnaiea. The Parks are after all roylaty. We know because Dwight told us so, and Dwight never lies. 😛

      • Rabble Rouserh says:

        I’m not to sure that Kim’s daughters will turn out all right in the end. I think the lack of trouble they are getting into is probably more reflective of their age than any discipline or boundaries Kim instilled.

        The youngest girl seems sweet enough although obviously is lacking self confidence which is concerning to me.

        The oldest one seems like she is becoming a superficial and entitled jerk. Her manners are horrible and she is every bit as rude as her mother. I think she is going to be in for a big let down once she gets older and the child support stops.

    • jezzibel says:

      Curb appeal= the curb where you pick up hookers, it has some double/triple/quadruple meanings

  7. error404 says:

    Why did Andy ask Khandi about swimming in the lady pond when Phaedra has said numerous times that sugar on a vajayjay is “delishious”? Even what Kim has said (read: Lied!) about her bi-cusious fumblings was standard “I kinda just laid there and let her do stuff to me” type bs. Why does no one want to know how Phae knows what a sugared vajayjay tastes like?

    • Brigid A. says:

      Andy loves to inquire about the “lady pond” at every opportunity. I believe he asked Kandi as a follow-up to a viewer’s telephone call. The caller was a little inappropriate in all the personal comments and questions for Kandi.

      As for Phaedra, I didn’t get the impression she was the one enjoying the “delicious sugar.” Could be wrong but I think she’s bragging about her male conquest(s) in the bedroom…but don’t tell her mother, ok?

    • Rabble Rouserh says:

      I think I can answer your question although it probably follows under TMI so I will try to couch it delicately.

      Sometimes someone who doesn’t smoke might kiss someone who does- and they can “taste” the cigarette off of them. *

      *For the record, I am comparing a woman’s va jay jay to a nasty cigarette- I’m just illustrating how a taste can be transferred. 🙂

      • error404 says:


        I think you meant “I’m NOT comparing…” No?

        Speaking of TMI… I find the sugar thing, other than like trying to get kids to eat their veggies by sugaring them up, i.e silly, but also sorta like trying to mask cooked broccoli with perfume: sometimes the cure is worse than the problem. lol They’d be much off just getting the guy drunk.

        • Rabble Rouserh says:

          I’m so dyslexic, yes I meant NOT comparing lol.

          I agree with you about the masking of food (or in this case ‘women juice’) with something else. IMO, if someone is good at it, it’s because they LOVE to do it, they don’t need artificial ‘enhancements’.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          omg- you are hilarious!

          In my experiences (limited, of course, though they are)
          ***all***of the time


          ***some***of the time

          have no problems with my “broccoli” if you know what I mean. No perfume necessary- just a little Chanel #5 on the neck and wrists.

          I should also probably preface this statement by saying men that I have dated…

          anyhoo…alcohol is oftentimes not necessary for them to enjoy broccoli.

          I have noticed, however, that a bottle of champagne does seem to help in MY participation in the Feast of the Broccoli.

    No Nene in LA! We don’t want her here

      Too funny.
      Reminds me of when that TV show LA Law was on…. my friends jokinly pronounced it LawLaw.
      So, NeeNee might live in LawLaw.

    Ill admit that I have not finished watching the whole show, but I wanted to coment on the parenting styles of Kim and NeNe. NeNe has a GROWN son who is acting like a fool. Kim has 2 young daughters who are just coming into some very important years. Both require very different parenting styles. Bryson at 20 leaves NeNe with little control. I would be screaming in his face too and if I were Kim I would be bonding and parenting.

    One more thing. Why didnt Andy ask Nene about her talking to Kim anout the friend contract?

    Atlanta is finally over, or do we have lost footage to look forward to? I think not as the schedule at BRAVO seems to be pretty full with Miami, OC and Bethenny. As usual Andy let Nene off the hook and I agree, she outyells others, stepping on their opinions and answers. It’s all about her. I was a Nene fan S1, appalled S2, recaptured early S3 to end disgusted late S3. I never felt like a Kim fan, as I actually still consider her to be obnoxious, egotistical user, but am hoping she does well with her new child, romance, wig line, new book, new song etc. She is dumb as a fox, or a cat that always lands on her feet! LOL

    I see Kim, Phaedra and Kandi returning, but think Nene will refuse, if a BBD comes along. Sheree and Cynthia may not be asked to return. Cynthia will be gone if Nene goes as that was her only “friend” and her runaway bride shtick is over. Sheree is so boring, if she did return it would be only because of Lawrence. Maybe she could be his agent to improve her storyline. Yup ATL is over!

    Guess what? I enjoyed RHOM! LOL

    Being a Floridian, I enjoyed seeing Miami, and CoralGables. I enjoyed the Latin flavor and also the women, with 2 exceptions, were young and beautiful. Usually you have older housewives, or at least older housewives dressing inappropriately. Here they are young enough or appear to be young enough to pull off the styles. It is Miami afterall!

    The cast has basketball wives, an old snarky charity maven, pr agency owner, gallery owner and magazine editor/owner. There are a few pre-existing friendships and it’s obvious who is friendly and who is or will be on the outskirts. The old wife, LOL, is the vicious one who will see herself to be the queen bee, be it because of her husband’s profession, contacts, social standings i.e. pecking order! She calls herself a collector of people but I see her as a cross between LisaVanderpump, JillZarin and Vicki! She’s rich, snarky with a humongous home, who brags about her good deeds, and is aged and plain looking! In other words an old mean girl.

    It looks like it will be a good season and I’m sure will have more drama than DC ever did. Can’t wait to see another episode, as it is great to see different cultures represented. Assimilation be damned, this is Miami Florida! LOL

    • Brigid A. says:

      ITA about Miami! Bring on the Miami vibe and some fun craziness for a change. Growing up in L.A., I have friends and acquaintances who are Latina, Cuban, South American, and overall they never disappoint when it comes to fun. Looking forward to a wild adventure with these housewives!

      • HD says:

        Interesting recap here. I missed it and it looks so boring to me but I am a sucker for RH and I will watch it as best as I can. I like to be in the know so I can comment with all the women here.

    • quincyil says:

      I like show about Miami also. Thanks for the information.

  12. WindyCityWondering says:

    Pheadra gets to keep her peach. The rest are pretty rotten or have no flavor left.

  13. AZ Girl says:

    Bravo needs to get rid of Atlanta and OC franchises. They are done as far as the story lines. I have no desire to watch Kim give birth and smoke and drink around the baby. Sheree was so boring this season. Kandi is nice but needs new storyline. NeNe needs therapy. Pheadra and Cynthia meh… OC is even worse. Tamra, Vicki, Jeanna, Slade Smiley and horseface yuck..

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      az are you refering to Gretchen as horseface if so that is absolutely horriable
      Gretche is one of the most beautiful people on any of the housewives shows inside and out
      to reduce someone like that by what you precieve as being unattractive is just outlandish

  14. MickeyMouth says:

    Hey Lynn thanks for the blog and shoutout, you Jill Zarin influencer you :0)

    I watched a little of Miami last night, then went to bed. I’ll have to watch the full episode on DVR, but am I the only one who thought they all talk real fast or was I just too tired to keep up, lol.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      LOL Mickey you are correct! Latins usually speak a little quicker, as conversational Spanish is usually spoken at a fast pace. Also adding to the quickness is that “some” CubanAmerican girls have a certain lilt in their speech that makes them sound like GloriaEstefan or a LatinValleyGirl! I don’t think captions will be necessary, if you get a good nights sleep or take a nap before viewing! 😉

  15. Jan in ATL says:

    Lynn…When Andy asked Nene whether her son was going to be a father, Nene said that she had heard the same thing but since that was his personal business Andy would have to ask him. Nene’s comment was appropriate as she has no right to discuss her grown son’s personal business on national tv without his permission.

    • HD says:

      No right? I have the right to discuss my daughter’s personal business until the day I die. Now whether I choose to discuss it or not is my own business but the day my daughter departed my womb pretty much gave me the right.

      I see what you are saying in that Nene followed discretion as to not involve her son in the media with him being a parent or not and that was wise of her. The right part is what threw me off…

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        if your daughter is a full adult then NO you dont have the right to discuss her personal buisness and if you do dont be suprised if you dont alienate yourself from her

        • HD says:

          I will discuss WHATEVER I want as it pertains to MY daughter. And until YOU start raising MY daughter I suggest you keep it moving.

          Thank you!

          • Rabble Rouserh says:


            When you start to talk like that, it makes me curious about the lady pond.

            I totally agree with you.

        • Rabble Rouserh says:

          I disagree, if her son was a grown man-he would be out of NeNe’s house and have a job.

          And if he, his ‘baby mama’ and their child wind up on PA- since it doesn’t seem like he has a job or a pot to piss in, it is my business.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      Maybe the question should have been is she going to be a grandmother? Although we would obviously know it would be about her grown son, we don’t know the young lady, still allowing her anonymity. As for his business, what was worse and was still played out for the world, was his arrest! How is Nene coy about childbirth, yet decidedly verbal about his arrests? It seems she quite choosey about what she’ll share, which is her right, but then is critical when others do the same!

      Gotta go, getting new furniture for my tween, he’s going to be a tall boy/little man as he’s 5’5, size 10 shoe and is only 12! Trying to decide between a full~his idea, or a queen~my idea. Let’s hope I can convince him if not over rule him. 🙂

      • HD says:

        Right. And what kills me with Nene is how she answers questions…”I don’t know you have to ask him.” Well the answer is obviously yes. “Did Greg cheat?” “I’m not gonna say he did or not.” (Something like that) Well obviously the answer is yes. If someone did not cheat you would clearly state that.

        So she says just enough but not enough to pinpoint anything which is dumb. Uhhhhhhh I hate when people do that. For me I listen more of what people don’t say.

        “So Phaedra what did Apollo get locked up for.”
        “I’ve said 100 times RICO.” Okay like we all walk around saying oh I got locked up for RICO. Give me a break. Why don’t you break down RICO and tell us in regards to his organized crime exactly what he was doing to get locked up? Which by now we already figured out.

        These women answer questions like we are all dumb. “So how many months were you.” “Well I had some medical issues and the women just wanted to gossip.” Okay so that would be how many months? They get on my damn nerves!

        • Rabble Rouserh says:

          I disagree with you about the NeNe thing.

          I think she is purposely inferring that Greg cheated to garner sympathy and to deflect from the allegations that she was cheating.

          She is the one who put it out there originally that he was- and now wants to be coy about it when she is asked directly. I think it has more to do with her current credibility being undermined than wanting to ‘protect’ Greg (from a rumor SHE started) and project a united front (the way he did with her when Kim alleged she cheated on Greg with Charles Grant)

          Because she has no proof or anyone else backing this claim up- she has no where to go other than to STFU.

          I totally agree with you about Phaedra but I think that was the lawyer in her talking. I think when most people hear someone did 6 straight, they think of something more horrific than stealing cars. But under the RICCO act the sentencing fits, so I think it’s her way explaining a lengthy sentence for a ‘non-violent’ crime.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            completely agree with re: Nene

          • I think you’re right about NeNe, RR.
            SHE brought up the cheating thing about
            Greg to deflect from herself. totally.

            For the 1st two seasons Greg was the
            only voice of reason for NeNe, he had her
            back and protected her fiercely. i think
            when his business tanked so did his
            self-esteem and NeNe’s loyalty as well.
            then the disastrous Radio “interview”-
            NeNe used that as a way to further
            throw him under the bus-she doesn’t
            need him anymore and he only holds
            her back. IMHO

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            if im not mistaken when she brought up infidelity to Cynthia wasnt she drunk ?

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          NeNe is in the middle of a divorce why on earth would she HAVE to say if Greg Cheated or not and quite possibly her lawyers may have adviced her NOT to answer such questions to the press

      • twoile says:

        Wow he will be tall & maybe quite quickly….maybe need a longer size in whichever one you choose. Good luck! :0)

    • MSU Chicago says:

      After Nene stated that Andy should ask Bryson, didn’t she make some wacky comment about him being a man and not a teen father? If I heard what I thought I did, that was the lamest defense of her son. He is 20 years old and living at home…

      I am looking forward to watching Nene on Celebrity Apprentice, because I am interested to watch her conflict with Starr Jones. Nene gets loud because she isn’t intelligent enough to go toe to toe with most people. Starr Jones is an attorney, so she should be able to talk circles around Nene, which in turn will cause Nene to freak out, probably to the point where she will want to choke Starr ala Kim. Nene = drama. It is worn out.

      Phaedra getting into the funeral business made me chuckle. I wonder if she is sending Apollo to Mortuary School?

      • floridagirl88 says:

        That was my first thought. Now he can quit talking nonsense about a turnkey operation and become a funeral director. His wife is going to buy him a business to run.

        • Dixie says:

          I thought the same. Funeral home operator is one of the few professional licenses a felon can obtain. I imagine Apollo would be very successful at that.

        • twoile says:

          @Fla G, Plus “P”s mom is a minister, keeping it in the family, they can provide a comprehensive service…& we all die there will be no lack of “clients”…good business sense, hope Apolo is really interested…….not a forced career.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        lol did you ever really watch how Starr was on The Veiw
        as for being smart
        she wasnt smart enough to tell her husband was a big old nelly queen LOL

  16. terry aley says:

    Was anyone actually awake late last night besides me to catch that “Sneak Attack,” or “Sneak Preview” as they call it of the Real Housewives of Miami? It started at 1 a.m. here in Arizona. http://terryaley.com/2011/02/21/real-housewives-fast-blast-miami-preview-review/

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Unfortunately, I was also awake and watched the “Sneak Preview”.

      The main thought cursing through my head was “If this was put in place of NY how much of a real dog is NY that it was delayed for this?”

      I’m doing myself a favor and passing on Miami just as I passed on the last season of New Jersey.


      • error404 says:

        “If this was put in place of NY how much of a real dog is NY that it was delayed for this?”

        Exactly! I’ve been saying the same thing since they made the last minute announcement. They were heavily advertising NY and then suddenly, at the last minute they realized they forgot to edit months worth of footage. Pull the other one why don’t you! The housewives aren’t the only Bravo people who talk to us like we just arrived on earth last night from planet Claire.

        • HD says:

          Amen and Amen, Error. Like they woke up one day after about a month of solid advertising and said, “oh shoot! Guess what guys? We forgot to edit the show! How did that happen?!”

          Do they think we are all stupid? You have a boring group of women that do nothing and you let your star go to start her own show. The only reason why NY got soooooooooo much attention was because B was fighting with Jill. Period. Just think about it. How often did we see these women on the cover of magazines and whatnot before the fight? How often did Entertainment shows report about them? It never if hardly ever happened! The fight took the franchise to an entirely different level. Now the fight is over and there is nothing left but dead air.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            actually and though they will never admit this
            they didnt expect a new series like B/H to do so well in the ratings the miami one has been in the can for a LONG time
            when the ratings came in for b/hs they must have said to themselves that athe audience craved New People New Locations and since they already had spent the money on Miami and they had it all already it made sense to cash in on it now they also know people will watch NY anytime they air it

      • Scorpiosue1102 says:

        NY has to be really bad…totally agree. Honestly, without Bethenny I don’t know if it will hold my attention.

        RHOM wasn’t bad. I’m curious about it so I’ll give it a whirl and see what happens.

        I’m looking forward to Bethenny Ever After more than any of the RH series coming up.

      • psol says:

        I agree, wasn’t that impressed with the sneak preview. I know that drama is what draws people to these shows, but I need to detox. I just watched the final episode of RHOBH yesterday, because I’m just overwhelmed with the drama. I think I’m going to skip most of these shows and just come to the blogs to get the updates.

    • quincyil says:

      I had no idea that they were going to show that and my dvr did not pick it up. I don’t see it in the listing for this week either.

      Bravo is tricky and they don’t like us to watch their shows.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      WWHL – Sneak preview announcement – was it to help WWHL or to give Bravo an idea of how RHoM would be accepted? Either way – not impressed! And by sneak previewing this latest RH franchise won’t that mess up their ratings when it debuts?

      • error404 says:

        IDK. I was shocked when they just sort of threw it on suddenly, but Mr404 thinks it was to capitalize on Atlanta’s popularity and captive audience. Still, I bet a lot of people had already switched it off and gone to bed, plus they missed all of the tivo and dvr watchers. The whole thing with Miami and NY is just odd to say the least.

        • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

          I would be one of those people who switched it off and went to bed. Maybe Miami will be repeated during the week.

  17. kbinldo says:

    I’m not going to be popular for saying this, but (& keep in mind, I don’t like Phaedra) the comments she made in the delivery room shouldn’t be held against her. She was hopped up on pain meds, hadn’t had anything to eat or drink since her labor started, was probably tired as all get out on top of that. People say some really weird stuff when they’re under anesthesia of some kind.

    So she said “gross” when they held up the baby to her still covered in blood & all. BFD. So she said her baby looked Chinese–he did. Again, BFD. How she feels about her baby & treats him now is what matters.

    • error404 says:


      Shocking, right? lol

      I think “gross” was a joke and everyone in the room laughed heartily. It is her first season and I think she’ll learn that un-PC humor (“He looks Chinese!” etc…) may crack up your friends and family, but doesn’t play well on tv.

      No, there is way to much other stuff I hold against PP. This one I let slide.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Me too!

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Was PP making sense to you last night? When queried about the pending investment in funeral parlors, she said she “had always been interested in the afterlife” and had held funeral parties complete with bejeweling. WTH?

        Or is it just me?

        • error404 says:


          But PP talks nonsense 24/7, so it’s just par for the course.

          • DarkSonnet says:

            I agree. PP has a PhD in Stupid Speak but she seemed to even surpass her own persona last night.

            I thought the addition of the rather last minute announcement of the Miami preview was to gauge some preliminary audience reaction without really putting themselves out there.

            Just a toe in the water rather than a deep dive. After watching it, it may have been a wise move.

    • HD says:

      I’ll go with you on that one.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      as much as i disliked her most of the season im pretty sure that she will be the most loving and amazing mom and if anyone gives that kid so much as a bad look they better watch out

  18. WindyCityWondering says:

    Again Andy flatlines another reunion! He refuses to take on NeNe and the rest of them are afraid of her….. we learned Phaedra is getting into the funeral business…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Any RHoA Lost Footage can stay lost. Any Producer’s Cut of the Bus of Fools/Bridal Shower from Hell won’t be watched.

    • error404 says:

      I don’t think it’s so much fear as pointlessness. She will just shout over you the same talking point over and over again, it’s not like you are getting through to her. And seriously, what were we hoping for? Like Nene is going to say “Yes, I’m a rage filled Diva who refused to take any responsibility for her own actions”. She’s just a louder version of every other real housewife. Please, Kyle saying she “looked mad, but was just sad” at the reunion, or Jill’s “so I’m a new york bitch. I am who I am.” was pure bs, and in the end, no more helpful than Nene’s loud blabbering. They’re all alike.

      • quincyil says:

        I agree. Nothing gets resolved as they really don’t listen to the other person’s concerns. No wonder Kandi cried when dealing with Kim Z.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      are you kidding if they decided to show a recut of the bus ride there isnt one person here that wouldnt watch regardless of what they say here now LOL
      Andy LOVES NeNe his isnt afraid of her

  19. Sg says:

    What’s up with the constant digs at Kim, but the constant excuses for Nene? If there’s anyone who acted like a complete asshole this season, it was Nene. Dont be as biased as the transparent Andy Cohen. I think you know what I’m taking about. Nene may get called out on her behavior but then you take the time to get extra venomous with Kim for much smaller transgressions

    Especially the way you’re discussing this music disussion. Maybe you’re just not familiar with music law and legalities, but it was pretty much explained point blank on the reunion. Whose fault is that if Kandi tried to rewrite the law and Kims lawyer called bullshit? If Kandi came to Kim in a reversed situation and tried to rewrite the laws for a different type of business situation would Kandis lawyers just sit idly? Hell no. Kandi tried to play the friend card, but she brought this upon yourself. Anyone in Kims situation who doesnt know much about music law would have reacted the same way and rightfully so and wondered what the hell Kandi was doing. She’s been in this business for years now. If you want the laws changed at least explain to your client first, or if not a situation like this will happen and she has no one to blame but herself.

    And playing the friend “card” is weak. If it bothers her so much why did Kim have to find out her true repressed feelings in the show interviews?

    I think the bottom line is it bothers Kandi mostly because she’s not actually the ballin’ producer/writer everyone seems to think she is. Just like most of the women exxagerate their wealth, Kandi exxagerates her career to put up a good fromt

    Why does Kandi keep taking about No Scrubs and Bills Bills Bills over and over? Cause that all she’s had! She hasn’t really written big hits beside those. And that was over 10 years ago. Those songs are not getting great recurrent airplay or great catalog sales so she isn’t swimming in royalties. She isn’t even getting hits on then R&B chart. Her new album was a complete flop too. Rave reviews my ass. Her single didn’t even chart on Urban radio! Her album couldnt even go Top 10 on the R&B charts!

    And Tardy For The Party wasnt even THAT big of a hit either. It didn’t even chart on the Hot 100 or any radio charts. So all this fighting and drama over it is so pathetic.

    Kandi needs to stop fronting and get back to her roots of writing singles for major crossover pop/r&b artists Stop focusing on things that won’t work like her solo career, Kims career, and Lawerences career…and her line of sex toys. She can’t live off that No Scrubs/Bills bills bills checks forever. And that way there will be less fighting over a pathetic 100k check for Tardy for the Party that she would laughed off in her more successful days.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Well, well, well. Very interesting indeed…

      • HD says:

        As for the music I think Kandi was trying to do her friend (use that word loosely) Kim a favor. She cut out studio time, producer fee, writing the song, etc. etc. for a three way split. She was trying to help Kim however Kim saw a way to stab her friend in the back. Yes, there are rules but I think Kandi was doing Kim a favor. They were splitting the money 3 ways and not getting into the legal mumbo jumbo. It was real simple but of course someone always has to get greedy and that is why friends and business often don’t work and things need to be put on paper.

        Kandi just thought Kim would be on the up and up but as usual Kim proved herself to be who she really is -a money grubbing, chain smoking, wine drinking, wig wearing, no talent having, manipulator.

        • Spikeyweed says:

          Kim did Kandi a favor by giving her a storyline this season. What else would she have had to talk about or react to beyond the boring promotion for her album? And it’s not that I don’t wish her well, she’s one of the more likable housewives of all the series; but she’s a bit on the dull side.

          • error404 says:

            that’s just sad.

            her mom seems nice and she appears to have a great relationship with both her mom and her daughter. And she works hard to do stuff.

            it’s a sad commentary on us that these items are “dull” while watching her watch a drunk lazy slapper try to sing and dance but sound and look like a cat being strangled is “entertaining”. Just sad.

            So rolling her eyes while Kim screamed “SWEETIE!” at the top of her lungs on a friggin 12′ long bus was a “storyline” for Khandi? Sad. Just sad.

            • Spikeyweed says:

              I don’t take this show, or any of the housewife shows, as commentary on anything other than their (the ‘housewives’) own ridiculousness…or whatever the producers and editors make of said ridiculousness.

              I watch for the lutz, not for the sads or inspiration from solid characters, even likable ones.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Have to agree that Kandi dropped the ball on this one – contracts are contracts and she didn’t do what she should have as a friend or as a saavy businesswoman/producer. There is a reason for having a lawyer, where was Kandi’s at the jump? Phaedra was very quiet on the subject – likely because she knows Kandi wasn’t taking care of business. It was a boring storyline.

    • error404 says:

      eh, interesting or dark-ages dull “blame the victim” type bs?

      yes, Khandi should have known better. Like when you go out and leave your house unlocked by accident. It’s all your fault and the thief who stole everything is a better person than you. Or how about the woman in the short skirt? She was just asking to be raped, right. Maybe Kim should start hitchhiking,. Then when people pick her up and give her a ride, she can steal from them too, and then we can all write lengthy posts about how stupid these poor fools were for picking up a hitchhiker.

      Yes, people who help friends deserve every bad thing that happens to them, and people who take advantage of friend’s generosity are the smart ones. We should all admire Kim.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Khandi should have offered “the Ring” song to Luanne, the countess wouldn’t have stiffed her the money.

    • vv says:

      on point: you’d think with her years in the business, at the high level she purports to operate on, her legal team would have had that caca sewn up…

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      its a shame you dont seem to have a clue what your talking about Kandi has had other hits but those two went multi platium so of course those will be the ones she is known for and as far as kims single not being that huge that is where your wrong again despite what people think it was number 1 on itunes for weeks
      what makes that so important is that it means it sold BIG to stay there for weeks
      and it charted on most urban radiostations as well as pop ones in every major market
      oh and one last thing bills bills bills just got a makeover on a tiny lil show called GLEE!
      do your reaserch before you wanna post so much bullshit

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        um… what hair is across your ass?

        You can certainly disagree with anyone here but I am detecting a real note of hostility. It’s unnecessary and unpleasant.

        Why do you feel the need to put down a poster simply because you disagree with his/her opinion?

  20. Adgirl says:

    Kim must really have $$$$ if she didn’t keep checking up on her song sales on that website she mentioned.
    She may have been playing dumb, but she really seemd more interested in playing the “pop star” than making money on the song.
    Interesting comments by Sg about music law. Is that true about the % cuts (are proscribed by law) or was the “rewriting law” referring to Kandi wanting to change her signed agreement with Kim after the fact?

      Kim’s not as dumb as she pretends. She knows she scammed Kandi and doesn’t want to give her the money based on their agreement. After all this time she could easily have written her a check if she wanted to. Kandi doesn’t keep bringing up the issue, Andy and the viewers keep bringing it up and Kandi to her credit keeps trying to explain. She should just shut up and sue. I like that the Ring song isn’t going anywhere unless Kim pays up. Since Kandi owns the song, maybe she can find another artist to sing it. Wouldn’t that be the slap in the ego that Kim deserves?

    I agree that RHOA is done…it is my least favorite of the Bravo shows. I started out liking None…but now she just seems like a bitter woman…I am hoping she gets fired quickly on Celebrity Apprentice. Sheree is boring…Phaedra was interesting…never knew what she was going to say…Kim is the stupidest person on the planet…and I am embarrassed to be a nurse. I suspect that Kim is a nurses assistant or Aide…she cannot be a Registered Nurse! Cindy makes me angry because she is so weak as a woman…did she get married because she loved Peter? Or because she wanted the dress and party and it was on TV? That marriage will never last. No more Atlanta…enough! PS…love Kandi…but she shouldve been smarter about Kim…she shouldve thrown Kim out of the recording studio the first time she uttered a note! I suspect Bravo forced Kandi to go on with her recording a song. Kandi is a musician….Kim is a joke.

      Kim is a LVN.

      You can find Kim’s nursing license online. I think she is an LPN but she didn’t renew it.

    • Jeepers1941 says:

      ITA in regards to your comment about Cynthia and that dress. I think she told herself she loved Peter, but I think she loved that dress more, hence she needed an arena for the world to see her in it. What better way than to get married on national tv to this man, Peter, who is nothing more than a putz and drinks to much, and she herself is beginning to do the same. Grant you the dress looked stunning on her, with all the makeup, hair style and those flowers she carried, who wouldn’t look great. I think I would have saved it for a man who I truly loved and who truly loved me and didn’t have to be drunk when he said his vows. Peter is a scum bag, who is demeaning to all women, mentaly, verbaly and as her own mother stated financially. I also suspect he can be phycially abusive. Hope I am wrong about that………………Jeepers

    Phaedra wins this season as she started out acting like a fool, but once she realized how she was perceived, cleaned things up and make herself look better. She didn’t completely redeem herself, but she did show us she was not as stupid as she at first seemed. I think she now understands how the reality show business works when you are one of the characters and not behind the scenes. Like Camille, she pulled it back before she went over the cliff.

    Poor Cynthia. We all know this marriage is doomed and I for one cannot bear to watch any more of it.

    Sheree, Sheree, Sheree. Still can’t get that dress line up? Why not He by Sheree? In episode 1 season 1, she was interesting, especially the way she dissed Nene at her birthday party. Now that was someone I wanted to know more about. The Sheree that couldn’t/wouldn’t pay her bills, got evicted, overspent, can’t dance, can’t act, etc. Who cares. The only interesting moments this season was watching her get taken in by the fake doctor. She should have known something was up when he couldn’t even pick her up for that first date. SMH

    I still like Kandi. She got scammed by Kim, but she smartened up and got lawyers involved. Bring her back.

    Nene is not just a disappointment, she has become a sad, tragic figure. She is not just angry for reasons we can only guess at, she is bitter and it doesn’t look good on her. All that loudness is just covering up something. I don’t care anymore, I just want her to stop talking. Stop yelling. Try to make some sense girl because you are embarrassing us all and on national TV!!! Go to NY, go LA, just go. Please. (I don’t want her yelling at me).

    Kim? I feel sorry for the daughters and wonder if their fathers have even half a clue about how they are being raised. We should all take a moment and say a silent prayer for the new baby. He will need all the prayers we can send him.

    Ahhhh, like RHoBH, I’m glad RHoA is over. Things never really clicked this season, did they?

    Phaedra sucks. The lies. THE LIES! Stop it. Have some shame.

    NeNe–negative, negative. Was it also her divorce that made her a raging b*tch? She seemed pretty salty at the reunion. She’s over it and we’re over her.

    Sheree is so boring. Her money woes and ex-husband issues might have made for more compelling tv.

    Cynthia. I like her. I don’t know about Peter. But, I think she has a good head on her shoulders.

    Kim is a mess as always. A calculating, lazy, golddigging, bewigged, mess. She wasted no time finding another sugar daddy. A young, dumb one! Kudos, I guess??

    Kandi should be a little tougher and little less freaky. I think it would help her personally and professionally to make people EARN it! She gives too much too soon in both arenas, I think.

    • NYCer says:

      Yes! Good description of Kim. I never thought she was dumb, just classless. Definitely calculating. She cut NeNe out of the song when she got Kandi, and cut Kandi out of the profits as soon as she could. Wonder if Kim had to pay that music teacher who wrote the original version. It was his title at least.

  25. missmi says:

    I have this feeling that Kandi screwed herself and thought she had a gentlemans agreement with Kim and Kims lawyer quickly let her know that its not in writing. Its almost like Kandi is hoping that Kim will just do the right thing, but knows she is not legally obligated. Hence, the tears.

    Im beginning to think that the producers cut for BH had more to do with Camille and her lawyers. Then Bravo offering more footage. Camille has turned things around a bit with the new information being leaked. Dont think NeNe has that to fall back on.

  26. NYCer says:

    NeNe said at one point during the season that she lost her happy. I think it is the divorce for sure. I remember how angry Sheree came across in the earlier seasons, but post-divorce calmed down. I hope this is just a phase for NeNe.
    To me, it’s unfair to compare the children and parenting styles. NeNe and Sheree are the only ones with adult children. We don’t know what is in store for any of the others, but with a mom like Kim, I can’t see her kids escaping all problems.

    Kandi’s hair looked great on WWHL last night, I’m so over that pink & orange clown hair that’s been all the rage from Rianna to Kandy.

    • quincyil says:

      I thought the ladies hair at the reunion looked great too. They have wigs on right? Pheadra’s hair and Nene had real hair, but I think every one else had a wig on.

        Sometimes NeNe’s hair looks like a wig-toupee sitting on her head and other times it looks authentic. Strange.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        You know, these shows have taught me I can’t tell wigs and weaves from real hair. I need education or better eyes. I thought Nene’s short haircut at last year’s reunion was a wig, but maybe not?? Can someone give me a tutorial?

    I am consistently amazed by how people actually take the Atlanta housewives seriously. These women are trash and are put on TV for enjoyment, but expecting any of them to behave in any but a trailer-trashy way is asking for way too much. They will never behave, they will never be reasonable and they will never be interesting on a level other than one where the viewer is watching some weird sociological experiment.

    Barbara Walter’s, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

    She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to, and are happy to, maintain the old custom.

    Ms. Walter’s approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’

    The woman looked Ms. Walter’s straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, “Land Mines.”

          • Terry says:

            No, the show is on another network, called Wealth TV or something like that.

            I agree: Danielle is not charming and I don’t see the point of watching her. If I need to see expensive real estate, MTV Cribs is enough for me.

            I wish Danielle would just go away. She’s a sociopath and I hate that she has a platform.

    Will the New Jersey Housewives Have Their Own “Scary Island”?

    Well. Bravo has treated the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey to a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Only the spouses are there, no children ( I don’t know about you, but I can do without Teresa’s children) .
    Will this trip duplicate the Real Housewives of New York’s trip to St. John, the trip dubbed “Scary Island”? With Teresa in the mix, you never know.
    Caroline Manzo, and Jacqueline Laurita are there , along with new cast members Melissa Gorga and Kathy Walike,, relatives of Teresa. When these ladies were added to the cast, Teresa threatened to quit, which she would never do, she needs the income, after all.
    She and husband Joe Giudice ruined the christening of Melissa’s son, by starting a physical brawl, with the cameras rolling. Melissa is married to Teresa’s brother. Kathy
    Walike hasn’t said much, yet.
    Season 3 of the New Jersey housewives has no official start date, so we will have to watch what happens.


    OK I might have to watch NJ because Danielle is gone and Teresa is gonna get her ass kicked by her sister in law. LOL.

    In other news:

    “How funny.”

    Not very.
    This is funny:

    A beautiful young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. But just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young man stopped her “You have so much to live for,” said the man. “Look, I’m a sailor, and we’re off to Europe tomorrow, and I can stow you away on my ship. “I’ll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy.”

    With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to Europe, the woman accepted. That night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches and make love to her until dawn.

    Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection.

    “What are you doing here?” asked the captain.

    “I have an arrangement with one of the sailors,” she replied. “He brings food and I get a free trip to Europe.”

    “I see,” the captain says.

    “Plus,” she adds, “He’s screwing me.”

    “He certainly is,” replied the captain. “This is the Staten Island Ferry.”

    “NeNe doesn’t miss a chance to dig at Kim, it only makes NeNe look like a petty, jealous child.”

    Lynn cant the same be said for Wig
    she is the most negative housewife in the group
    she puts everyone down at the drop of a hat but her fave target is NeNe and it always eincludes her saying something like how ugly NeNe is
    i guess Wig is so delusuional that she actually sees a young beauty in the mirror instead of the hideous baby jane drag queen others see

  38. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    When Kim starts making sense, something is wrong, but she did make sense.

    except that as a parent she pretty much sucks
    she doesnt cook her kids survive on take out or mickey d’s part of the reason her youngest is overweight
    she sets nothing but bad examples dating a married man for years the getting knocked up by some guy she barely knows
    i cant wait to see the work ethic she is instilling in them

    • HD says:

      Speaking of parenting…I am watching reruns and watching Kim’s parents talk about Big Poppa. Who does that? If my daughter was having an affair I would not be talking about Big Poppa like he hung the moon and enjoying wine that he bought for me. Eye rollage…

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        oh i know i couldnt believe how they used to talk about him
        what else i cant believe no one has asked was Kim is how many months pregnant and how long ago was she flirting with the host in Miami

  39. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    “NeNe claims she likes Apollo, but if she claims to not even know Phaedra, how can she know she likes Phaedra’s husband? Does she even know him?
    Phaedra claimed that “NeNe stayed on him more than anyone.” I could see that.”

    NeNe never said she doesnt know Phadedra what she said was she didnt know her growing up in Athems
    there is a big difference and obviously since they have been filmed together how could or why would NeNe say she doesnt know them now
    if you think back to the entire season there wasnt one other h/w that didnt make a remark about Apollo having ben a convict and NeNe didnt say any more then anyone else
    Phaderah is now a full time resident of Haterville

  40. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    “NeNe had issues with every one of the other housewives and while she cleared the air with Cynthia and the two ladies remain friends, it can’t possibly be all of the other ladies who are wrong. ”
    what issues did she have with Kandi who pretty much agreed about Kims behaviour to sweetie on the bus tour
    and really the only time she had a issue with Cynthia it was squashed faster then it got started
    She by Sherre although i love her has always been 2 faced when it comes to NeNe
    Most likely Nene will leave this show but when she goes so will I as she is the only reason i really watch
    I wish Kandi would get her own show like Bethennys
    i would rather watch her then whats left
    this is Wig at the happiest time of her life ??? imagine her hormonal EWWWW

  41. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    What Phaedra describes as “curb appeal” is simply Housewives fans wanting to see Kim perform.

    i dont buy that for a second
    the white party was a huge gay event where they will go crazy for whatever is the current cult record of the moment although im sure a lot of those queens are h/w fans too
    but on the bus tour no one came to see Kim
    that audience was there for the real talent Kandi

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      I agree but what I always wonder is why doesn’t Kandi just release the song herself? Why does she need Kim?
      Kandi is adorable ~ sexy~talented & she can sing!
      Why does she insist on using these people who have very little talent compared to her?

      • HD says:

        Kandi is primarily a song writer which is why she doesn’t just release a lot of songs herself. Also the ring song is not her style of music. Kandi doesn’t sing that techno type of stuff. Kim has no talent. Lawrence could sing and sing well and I can see where she was going with him. Kandi is a smart woman by dipping into different areas.

        Most people probably don’t know this but a Black rapper signed Lady Gaga when no one else would give her a deal. He said because of that, she basically retired him by making him unbelievably rich. That was a smart move dipping into and believing in a different style of music. The rest is history.

          Thank You HD~That explains a lot.
          Too bad she couldn’t find someone who really needs the money & make that person into a star than someone who has a very large income already. I guess money is the reason for everything.

    Unbelievable how Lynn & Q can make shows that I normally don’t watch unless there’s absolutely nothing else on interesting~
    I think the powers that be, Lynn & possible Q should try to make Andy ask 5 questions & make these ho wives answer them on WWHL or the reunion shows.
    I think Andy was somehow turned on by Teresa throwing him down on the chair by the look on his face. Or he knows instantly it would make great tv.
    I will give Miami a chance because we have no choice I guess 😉 Love to look at any beaches & it’s nice to have a mix of some different nationalities other than bleach blond fake tan boob job nose job botox etc..
    Still can’t wait to see Bethenny~waiting for NYC wives & their new outlook on life without Bethenny (Gag) OC should be great. Interesting to see how Vicky & Tamra act without those restraining hubby’s in the way.
    Have a grand day & thank you for keeping us ho wives addicts fixed 😉

      tamara is a disgusting horrorshow of a person
      she accused her hubby of abuse and when Jeana Keough called her out on it she went ballistic

      • HD says:

        @Baabee-That is the one thing that has perked my interest in Miami-the fact that Bravo has finally gotten some more color off in the mix. Hallelujah! You mean there are other nationalities in the U.S. that have money? I am floored! You mean every woman in the world is not blond? Let me clutch my pearls! I can’t believe it!

        Also-I agree with the question thing. When I watch those reunions I get so mad. I think all the time damn I wish I was asking the questions! I would not let them off the hook so easy.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          @HD~I am clutching my diamonds dahling~lol
          That’s another thing I don’t understand about these shows. It’s nice to show people who have a lot of money to see how the other world lives compared to me & hubby but I wouldn’t mind seeing just regular middle to upper middle class who enjoy life without being rich & what they do besides shop & get face lifts & boob jobs etc..
          They don’t have to be poor but are we only interested in rich ho wives?

          • HD says:

            I don’t mind them being rich because it is nice to see how the other half lives but it is like they find rich people that don’t do anything. I guess when you are rich you do a lot of charity events and fundraisers and fashion shows at least that is what Bravo would have us to believe. Perhaps if they found some rich women that were not rich by association. Their husbands are out making the money so their job is to attend fundraisers…okayyyyyyyy. I am at a lost for what rich wives do because they all seem to do the same thing over and over and over again. Maybe Miami will have some hot, rich women doing things besides fundraisers, eating out, fashion shows, going to mediums, planning parties, occassional shopping, working out, plastic surgery…did I cover them all? LOL!

        No not a bit..she looks abusive if anything I agree, at least verbally.
        I guess they can all go on those all girl trips without worrying about hubby’s tagging along. How many are still married on OC?
        When do they start their new season? I forgot as usual. lol
        I love Jeana most of time but I wish she would talk about some things privately. There’s plenty O’ trash to dig up about these people than getting involved with someone’s divorce & whether or not Simon is it? Was abusive in front of the world.
        I have a feeling booze was the cause of many fights as it usually is. My mama & all us kids were abused verbally & just every other way you can imagine & booze was almost always involved because of my alcoholic family. No one ever knew because we were very good at keeping secrets.

        • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

          Tamara, Vicki, Alexis, Gretchen, and a new blonde who is a friend of Vicki? Jeanna is not part of the lineup I believe. She is not shown in the beginning holding whatever. They are all blonde.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            she is on at least one episode in the coming attractions they show Tamara throw a paper at her and then possiably a drink

        • HD says:

          I think Alexis is the only one that is married. I am not sure about the new woman. I think she is married though. It is crazy how these marriages fall apart.

          Vicki, Tamara, Nene, Luann (is that all?). I always wonder if they had not done the show would they still be together.

          According to Tamara she knew it wasn’t going to work but then she got pregnant with Sophia. (Why do I know this? I need a hobby) Simon always came off as controlling to me and then it seemed that Tamara just stepped all the way out, short skirts, boobs out, etc and didn’t want to be controlled anymore. I never really liked Simon anyway. I honestly never had any issues with any of the women on OC. Just Lynn for not standing up to her kids. I am not sure why they never bothered me. No one really did except Jill.

          • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

            Vicky still gets on my nerves~just re-watched that show with her surprising her son at college with a case of beer & embarrassing the hell out of him & everyone there. She also wore a shirt so tight she might as well as not worn one. Stupid when you are going to visit college boys & your grown son. I thought he was 20 in that episode as well. I guess he was going to be 21 soon. lol
            I never like Simon either. When you are brought up being told what to do 24/7 when you leave home that’s the last thing you want to get back into. It was so fake seeming with them on the motorcycles riding to that bar & Tamra the kiss of death getting his name on her finger.
            Should of been the middle one ha ha.
