I am having MANY DVR issues tonight apparently I did not know I had a conflict at 9 and Nene is the last one out. So I am using my copy of first look to get us started then I will stop my recording of The Voice and continue. Sigh. I do want to see the last five minutes where I assume the family drama comes from. How many episodes did Nene get? Three like Tamra or is this a 8 week series like #DBT to try and help out that stupid “New Atlanta” nonsense I refuse to watch?
Nene talks with the Donald about a prenup. Nene must be so glad the Donald did not change his secretary’s number like Tyler Perry did. Peter is giving relationship advice to Gregg. LOL. Second marriages to the same person rarely work out any better than the first go round. ERRYBODY should be all in for the prenup.
I had to move my blogging station to the boudoir where the lovely tube TV makes everyone red, so I will not be commenting on what anyone is wearing. Probably. Greg is in the ATL basement he lived in for his “separation” with his groomsmen. It’s the Gregg rehabilitation scene. Until, of course he gets to the strip club.
Nene just said her ring is a 15 carat cushion cut DIAMOND. This was the first time she has ever said the word diamond in reference to her ring. It was also a Frankenbite. The close up of her engagement ring shows that it has two fairly large diamonds on the sides, that is 3-4 carats right there, it also has 24 smaller diamonds around the outside, that’s another that’s another 6ish, leaving 5 for the main stone. BUT her wedding band is also new with diamonds all around, so that center stone could be ANYTHING and she could still have 15 carats total weight. I know y’all never believe me when I try to explain that Nene is does not have the money she pretends to have but TRY THIS WEBSITE to get some objectivity. Then ask yourself, “Does Nene make anywhere near the money these people do?” If your answer is yes, you are at the wrong website. We are an intelligent group of people who for some stupid reason watch this crap anyway.
Nene is explaining her bridesmaids to Cynthia and Marlo and her real Bff Diana (Govin I think) . Diana has been her real behind the scenes BFF forever. Diana does not like “Laura”. Why does Nene not speak properly? She does it on PURPOSE. She retweeted a tweet from me once and took the H off of with, and it was not because she was trying to keep it under 140. She seems to think that non-standard English is “keeping it real” so the whole I have nine bride maids” just annoys the shit out of me. And she wants a TALK SHOW? Diana wants Nene to stick to having people who have been with her in the down days. Diana calls Marlo an opportunist who is trying to grab Nene’s spotlight. She is absolutely right. I must say I have been in this exact situation before. I was the NEW friend who was asked to dress shop and support a bride, come to find out she had long time friends who were jealous. My opinion was I did not ask for all of this, but she has been crying on my shoulder the past few years. (in college). Anyway Diana is about to get hot. I am on her side. 9 people? really? Marlo starts in with her baby daddy is rich and she doesn’t work. True. I have posted somewhere Diana’s baby daddy pays her a gazillion dollars in child support. Go down to bottom right and search it.Cynthia tries to shut them down. #teamdiana Diana has a lot longer guaranteed income than Nene or Marlo or Cynthia. Privately, Diana is trying to help Nene. Nene is blind to the Marlo issue.
Wait what? Diana is not the maid of honor? Then who the hell is? If it is Marlo, then Nene got some big issues. I have been following Nene for years and Diana has been ride or die. She flew to LA for her auditions, she flew to LA and essentially acted as her assistant/friend for free. OMG, NENE who is the maid of Honor? If it ain’t Diana, you fucked up. Nene is NOT HAVING A MAID OF HONOR. This is super disrespectful to Diana. She is being way more gracious about it than I would be. How is she going to line the bitches up then?
Meanwhile Gregg goes to meet with his brother and sister for the first time in five years. His brother is a Pastor. What could he have possibly done to break THAT relationship? Nene doesn’t know either. I love his sister, “I’m the cutest one!” They are having a lunch like they are all cool. Gregg has a Frankenbite about “Dr. Jeff” cancelling them. Gregg promises to be close to his siblings again.
Nene just loves that torn up clothes stuff from the 80s. She has a scene with Brentt telling him he needs to get back in school. YOU THINK? Nene has been “homeschooling” him by dragging him to her filming and LA events. As a teacher it may surprise you that I don’t have a problem with that. Briefly. I traveled the world extensively as a child and that counted for a lot. I was still accountable to my teacher, but I was also in elementary school. Brentt is in High School and need to learn Science and Chemistry and Calculus. Those things are not taught by flying from LA to ATL and back with a “home school teacher.” Brentt is the smartest person in the room saying he wants to go to a real school and he wants his mother to be with him too.
Here is the thing. Nene says she doesn’t feel bad about being a working mom, she feels guilty about missing certain things because she is working, So she doesn’t feel guilty about missing anything. And she feels bad FOR HERSELF about the things she is missing. GOT IT. Brentt wants his mother there and she is NOT HEARING IT.
I love how Gregg has moment talking to the dog like Kim has talking to her baby.
Wow there is 20 minutes left and Gregg’s kids are coming over. I love them all already. Nene order Mexican. Gregg says he wants everyone to talk so he can get the family back together. DING DONG, Nene has invited Dr Gregg I totally believe he did not know he was coming and he does not like him. Nene has asked him to come moderate without telling Gregg.
Gregg starts with asking his kids how they feel about Nene and what she had to do with the demise of the marriage between Gregg and his former wife, their mother.
The kids say they don’t know why Gregg and their mother broke up. Their problem is that Gregg doesn’t talk to them. Damian says that he went on V-103 and said Nene was selfish. Damian apologized for that. Nene said she knew nothing about that. His kids say you need to keep in touch with us. They said you married into OUR bloodline so don’t get it twisted if you are going to ride the RHOA train, you need to acknowledge us!
And I agree. If you are going to be ” I AM NENE LEAKES” you better not only ACKNOWLEDGE the family but support them! The kids are basically saying they were only invited for filming. Nene says that is when his Dad tells him to come over. I believe that. Nene is TRYING! Nene is like NOT MY PROBLEM I told him to do better, he’s an asshole. Damian goes off and leaves.
Coming up: I ALWAYS LIKE IT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS GET THAT CAMERA OUT OF MY FACE.And then the bridesmaids go all in on Nene.
