The Real Housewives of Everywhere Has Jumped the Shark (Have Jumped the Shark?)

2009-07-07-reality-tv-destroy

 

I started this post writing about what is wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta and how it has jumped the shark. I thought about how it could be fixed. How to save the franchise. I thought about how to make it more interesting, ways to make it better.  But, very quickly in, I was reminded that we shouldn’t be watching this crap at all. Seriously. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? But first, here is what I thought we should do back when I was still drinking the Kool-Aid. At the end I will link you back to my thoughts three years ago, before the crazy came.

There are too many women on this show. I have said this forever, when there are more than five housewives, it’s hard to get into any of their storylines. Hell, we don’t even notice anymore when Nene is not on at all.

There is was too much recapping of the previous episode. We get it the wives told their husband about the previous week’s forced dinner where someone was a cunt. The wives who weren’t in some scenes the previous week were filled in on what happened. We don’t need the first 25% of the show to be a recap. That’s what I am for. Continue reading

WWHL With Rita Wilson And Jacqueline Laurita

I’m irritated as hell by that episode of RHONJ. I feel like I almost have to defend Jim Marchese. Sure he was being a little bitch but he sent Bobby into the bathroom to hide for the whole episode?

I may not say much about this episode. But I wanted to give you guys a place to comment.

Andy points that the new Wakile house has a turret as do most of the RHONJ homes. This seems to be a real housewives thing. Chateau Sheree’s is pretty much all turrets are not many rooms in the whole monstrosity that are not circular.  And Kim Zolciak’s house is a turret fest as well. Clearly these people have never tried to decorate a round room. It’s a PITA.  One round room is fine. 17 round rooms is a problem. See my walk thru of Chateau Sheree here.

Mailbag: Tidbits of Tea…And Random Thoughts

AHS COVEN MYrtle gifOkay. There are a few things that I am being asked a lot this week and another thing I wanted to address with you guys and this is the best way for me to do it. I’ll start with the questions.

The most frequent one I get is, “Why is so and so reporting that Porsha is coming back to RHOA? I thought you said she was fired?”

My source who I trust told me that Porsha was sent home from the reunion and would not be returning to Bravo. I still believe that to be the case. I do have some additional information, but I am holding on to that a bit longer. Here is why you are hearing many rumors now, that are all just that, rumors. If this is your first season of reading blogs about the franchise, this is how it works. Sometimes I assume you have information that it is in my head that you can’t be expected to know. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part Two: Chapter Two

RHOA Reunion 2014 mama joyce

Okay, the first fifteen minutes of the second part of reunion were so jam packed, they have their own post here. For the remainder of the reunion, I am going to try to just hit some of the highlights, or low lights as they will likely be.  I just could not get over the defensiveness of the ring leaders of the attack on Kenya in the first part of the reunion and wanted to make sure I got it all down.

One thing for sure is that Andy is having a hard time getting back into a playful groove with the ladies on the reunion. He seems way more serious than he usually does on reunions.

Andy is going in on Phaedra! When we return from break he says to her, “That night both head doctor and dick surgeon were trending on Twitter, how did that make you feel?” Phaedra says “At the end of the day (drink) I know that that’s never been a rumor, so I knew that it wasn’t the truth. And I mean, what Kenya’s talking about (that would be the deposition taken in a room full of attorneys and Phaedra when testimony is given about Phaedra’s head doctor ways. See Link) I’m not even thinking about. ” Welp, Phaedra. It must be nice to have so many legal proceedings involving you and your husband going on and not even giving them a second thought.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 2 Chapter One!

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!

We arrive back at the reunion with Porsha ejected from the show and a definite line in the sand drawn between the left couch and the wrong couch. Andy is very clear in his defense of Kenya and his disdain for Porsha. Oh my how wrong this little plot of Nene’s and Phaedra’s has gone. They both will be wearing their stank faces for the rest of the reunion shoot. You never win when you play dirty ladies!

After explaining that violence will not be condoned under any circumstance, Andy asks Kenya what happened. Kenya says, ” Well, we were talking back and forth, um, all I know is she got up out of her seat and stood in front of me and I got up and she just lost control.” Continue reading

Nene Leakes Interviews Andy Cohen

And she actually asks some interesting questions.  Is she trying to get on Fashion Queens or something similar?  What’s up with this?

UPDATE! Just saw a commercial for this episode of WWHL and ANDY BRINGS UP THE INCIDENT AT THE REUNION!  Hopefully he lets the Porsha freaks understand she is no longer employed so I can stop getting hate tweets and such. 🙂
