Blood Sweat DemetriaFor a new episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” tune in this Sunday, January 12 at 8pm ET/PT, as Phaedra downloads Kandi on her trip to Athens, and Kenya receives a long overdue but stressful visit from her Dad. Cynthia and Peter begin to mend their relationship after their big blow up, while Porsha’s divorce from Kordell marches on after the two meet with their lawyers to hash out a possible settlement. Kandi receives shocking news from Todd about the musical, and Nene makes a decision about whether or not to partake in it. A visit to Porsha’s new house has Phaedra and Kandi questioning Porsha’s financial smarts, causing not only the ladies but her family to worry as well. The ladies come together for Cynthia’s sister, Malorie’s jewelry trunk show, but tensions flare between Kenya and Malorie. Nene is hit with unexpected news and emotions reach a boiling point when one of the ladies makes a dramatic exit.

Hmmmm what is the shocking news about the musical?  Why can’t Kenya get along with Mallory? What unexpected news does Nene receive? Where does the dramatic exit happen? The trunk show?

Immediately following, check out a new episode of “Blood, Sweat & Heels” this Sunday, January 12 at 9pm ET/PT, where tension heats up between Melyssa Ford and her new boss, which forces Melyssa to question whether she can truly succeed at being a buttoned-up real estate agent. Elsewhere, Daisy’s tardiness sets the tone for a date with a shocking outcome. Then, Mica hosts a dinner party with some of the ladies still reeling from Demetria’s blog betrayal. Unfortunately, “drama” seems to be the only item on the menu.

Why would anyone be surprised that their friend who is a blogger would blog about their social outings that are being filmed for TV?

Do you think Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules will pass RHOA and Blood, Sweat and Heels in the ratings?

  1. I would imagine the ratings windfall is due to two weeks of reruns during the holidays and also due to the extreme cold weather. No one is going out if they don’t have to.

    There is no way any other Real Housewife franchise can be RHOA ratings, period. If Blood Sweat and Heels keeps following RHOA then it will always beat Vanderpump Rules

  3. I’ve got nothing, I don’t watch Atlanta, it’s painful.
    Good to know your numbers are up, yes I watch the ad. Most if them are very well done.

  4. I was questioning Porsche financial smarts also when she showed the house to her family I don’t understand why people find the need to live in a big ass house when it’s just one or two people if i was her I would get a nice condo in a building with a doorman and concierge Porsche is going to be the new sharee if she make it another season

      While you are questioning Porsha’s financial smarts. I am questioning your grammar smarts. Ever heard of a period, or a comma?

      • My bad I didn’t know my teacher was searching blogs comments section looking to make sure I punctuate you have to much time on your hands how about you take a seat and sit in them

    P.S. Tamara, check Bravo’s website for the new trailer for Real Housewives of NYC, set to debut in March.Brandi’s friend Kristen replaces LuAnn, LuAnn is only a “friend.”

    Ramona throws a glass at Kristen causing her to bleed, Aviva gets into it with someone causing her fake leg to come off.

    Even Carole is getting into it with Aviva, she calls her psychopath with no soul.

    These ladies stepped it up.

    Porsha moved into Nene’s neighborhood. Porsha should have gone with the condo in Atlanta instead of moving all the way out to Duluth. It’s great for families, but that condo would have been just fine for her.

    • Seems to me it makes more since to rent the space Lauren found for her!

      • pfffttt

        Yes, and so much better for someone Porsha’s age. Duluth is great for someone like Nene with a family. But a single girl in her early 30’s, that condo in the city would be perfect for her.

    Why can’t Cynthia stand up to anybody not her sister her husband her friends??Leon is not going to stand for her letting Ms Peter yell and bark and cuss around Noelle while Cynthia searches for a backbone
