The show began with the usual cute scene with Kim and KJ. These little opening interactions between Kim and that delicious baby are a testament to the RHOA production team. They are miles above the other franchises. From the big dramatic scenes in South Africa to these intimate moments, True Entertainment does an outstanding job. Next we see Kim headed out to the sticks to pay a psychic to tell her that her future in-laws don’t like her. We could have told her that for free!
UPDATE: Ratings are in and Tardy had great numbers. 1.453 million at 9:30 beating Punked and the Pauly D project on MTV. Even the replay at 11:30 brought numbers close to what Kathy Griffin’s show brought on it’s first run. Y’all might as well prepare yourself for a second season.
Which brings us to dinner. I can’t imagine there being a woman alive who was born and raised in Georgia that can’t cook. That said, if there is such a creature, she would never serve guests, especially future in-laws, from plastic containers or cold pizza rewarmed on the back of some random “piece of metal.” I really want to believe this is a TV stunt, but sadly I don’t. An abject moron can roast a chicken with some vegetables and make a salad. I cannot believe you said to your mother-in-law that you’ve never touched raw meat (heh) and acted as though a can of beef broth was one of the world’s greatest rarities. This is not the way to make a future mother-in-law pleased with her son’s choice of brides. You missed an opportunity to actually learn how to cook something by behaving like a twelve year old at every turn.
Why didn’t you use the table set with the to-die-for Versace china for the in-law visit? Are you expecting a visit from the Queen of England or someone else more important? Versace china covers a multitude of sins. Which you had. Those blue and white everyday plates while more appropriate for reheated pizza did nothing to help the situation.
It was a nice touch to have Shun Melson there with some Mother of the Groom dresses for Kroy’s poor mother to choose from. I’m not sure what she was more thankful for, that she didn’t have to pony up for her own dress or that your mother was unable to attend because “she was sweating and had to put on some deodorant.” Kroy very kindly tried to explain to you that it will take some effort on your part to change his parents opinion of you. You really should listen to him. Unfortunately, you are going to have your hands full with your own mother. I can’t wait for the scene where the police are called to remove her from your reception.
Somehow I still like Kim. Sure she’s flawed, but bless her heart, she’s happy. The world needs more happy people, even if they are damn Yankees who transplant themselves in Atlanta.
