The Real Housewives of Atlanta ventured off the Shamwari properties on last night’s episode to head into Port Elizabeth. That was a forty-five minute drive with both the talls and the smalls in the van. A nice drive along the Eastern Cape would normally be a fantastic experience to see new sights and learn new things. The ladies were very near to the birthplace of Nelson Mandela. I’m sure if they ever heard of him they might have made a stop along the way at his birthplace or any of the numerous museums honoring him and remembering Apartheid. But they apparently did not.
With Nene complaining the whole way there, (Marlo thankfully got food poisoning or something so was turned down a notch on the drive) the ladies went to the Xhosa Cultural Center. Port Elizabeth is a stop for nearly all South Africa cruise ships. For that reason this cultural center reminds me of a place in South Carolina off I-95 called South of the Border. If you are an east coaster you have probably at least driven by it on a road trip. Imagine if someone from South Africa came to the states and chose South of the Border as the only east coast destination. That is basically what the real housewives did.
Sure you learn a bit about the Xhosa culture there, but it is about a touristy as you can get, complete with personalized reading of the bones. It would not surprise me if it was the only option for the housewives. I’m sure after being at Shamwari for a few days word got around. It is BEYOND embarrassing for Atlantans.
I just can’t blog about all the ignorance and vile behavior last night. What I will do is talk about what Nene Leakes was doing during the airing of the show. Click through the jump to find out.
Nene Leakes posted thirty some odd tweets last night from the time the show aired until the end of What What Happens Live
. In those tweets, she insulted all “the smalls” particularly Sheree and Kandi. She said the were full of shit, and reporting to their “boss” more than once. She called Jackee drunk on the show for saying that she lacks fashion sense. (It’s not just fashion, Jackee). She seems to think that Kandi is jealous of her. (for what?) She claims the Watch What Happens Live
polls are rigged. (But only when she doesn’t like the outcome), And she is again encouraging her fans to let Bravo know that she is the star of the show while also saying she has outgrown the whole thing and is stuck in a contract. She also chose to respond to someone asking about her spin-off by implying she turned Bravo down. Read them for yourself.
