I wasn’t planning on posting about second part of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion last night. I thought it was pretty boring. There were only a few things that stuck out for me last night. First, Phaedra subtly got off a little one liner sticking it to Sheree when she said “I think that maybe the clothing line thing has been overdone.” and followed it up with hinting that she will have a video coming out about a donkey butt workout. Didn’t we recently see a picture of Toya Wright and Phaedra flaunting their backsides while working on some project together? Sounds like season five storyline to me. That was a triple punch at Sheree that Phaedra just let out so sweetly that lots of people may have missed it. Essentially she said, your clothing line was a failure, you should have done a workout video, and now I am doing one with your replacement. It was perfectly nuanced and fabulous.
OK, let me bring some clarity to that situation, before I officially close out 2011. Peter Thomas was the one that spent most of his day setting up everything up for The Bailey Agency opening. He made sure that everything was beautiful and perfect. I was happy that he took the time to help me out, because managing Bar One is a full-time job. Between bouncing back and forth between The Bailey Agency and Bar One, he was exhausted. At one point he stepped out to check on something at Bar One and was MIA during my thank you speech. Of course, when he returned the speech was over and the rest is history. My only issue with Peter was that he should have communicated to me that he had to step out and would be right back. Communication is key! It eliminates the unnecessary drama and senseless confusion. I was so busy entertaining my guests that I honestly did not notice that he had left. Had I been informed, I would have waited for him to get back. Or I could have at least expressed to everyone that he had to step away for a moment. No drama, end of story.
Last night, when Andy asked Peter where the heck he was during Cynthia’s speech, Peter said he was tired and went home. Seems like these two still aren’t communicating. Today Peter is tweeting about people talking about him and Cynthia is retweeting comments about how we don’t know the whole situation between them because we only see a few minutes out of their lives. I contend that even if they are spending all the time we don’t see naked and intertwined whispering sweet nothings to each other, these two still have issues. They both spend a whole lot of time arguing and trying to keep their stories straight. Even if every counseling session and family drama scene is completely fabricated for Bravo, these two people have serious marital problems. Because if you have a good marriage these sorts of scenes do not happen either for real or just to make some bucks on TV. So today’s attempts on twitter to make us all believe everything is hunky-dory is falling on deaf ears.
The reason I went ahead and blogged about this today is it seems that y’all have lots of questions. Most of them are about Kim. Several people asked me if Kim and Kroy really bought their house. I haven’t commented on this because I don’t know. Kim said they did on the reunion but she hasn’t tweeted a thing about it. The Fulton County tax office still shows the house being owned by Antonio and Kendra. Kim has lied about a few things on the reunion. It’s possible they are still closing on the house. It’s possible the Tax Assessors office hasn’t updated their records yet. I just don’t know. I’ll let you know as soon as I know something either way.
Then there was the drama between Kim and the blogger who writes Straight From the A last night. Lot’s of y’all asked me if I knew what was going on. Nope. I saw the same thing y’all did. Maybe less because when there is a show going on my timeline moves fast and I can’t keep up and watch the show at the same time. All I know is that Kim and Kroy landed in Atlanta after returning from LA to promote Tardy for the Wedding and stopped somewhere to watch the reunion before going home to Roswell. Perhaps Kim was cranky from the flight? I didn’t see Atlien paying her that much attention other than commenting on Kroy’s hair. Which did look …um…different. I really have no inside info on what set that off. Speaking of Kroy, someone asked about why the contract was for three years and not four. A reader named Bree, explains that in comments of the post I made about it here in case you missed it. I think/hope that covers everything.
