Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Another Completely Fakeass Episode

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.

Oh God, I had somehow blocked out the last episode of this show and was sitting here wondering where we were going tonight.  I completely forgot the TV shrink chasing Nene into the parking lot. I’m not sure who looks dumber, the shrink or Nene sashsaying away in her Pep Boys uniform.  I think she probably just had to work a late shift doing some oil changes and stuff in her coveralls.

Thank you Kandi! That is just what I was saying. Why is this fool chasing after Nene? Let her go and the other girls can actually hash some issues out. By the way I love what Kandi is wearing for a change. This is something I would wear.

Nene thinks that the shrink should lose his license. This is so hysterical. Her reasoning is that a good counselor would not allow everyone to speak their truth about  how Nene treats people. Nene sees this as “Gang Up on Nene Day!”   Clearly she doesn’t understand that counseling is about understanding YOUR behavior in interpersonal relationships and working on yourself.  In group or couples counseling it is about listening to how others perceive you. Nene get into her black Range Rover and rolls off.

Back in the session, Kenya points out that Nene does not have the tools to handle when more than one person comes at her, yet the rest of them have dealt with similar situations multiple times. Especially when they first come on the show.

Somehow this therapy session becomes all about Porsha and I can’t even deal with it. Continue reading

How About A Musical Interlude?

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: False Piety and Fake Therapy

RHOA Therapy Times

Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.

Phaedra

We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”

Kandi

Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight.  Interesting.  Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.

Claudia

Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up.  Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine. Continue reading

Watch What Happens Lives With Cynthia Bailey and Melissa Gorga

WWHL Cynthia MelissaI do not get the sudden trend of wearing winter white. While winter white has always had its place, simply wearing white in winter is not winter white. Also when it is a rainy slushy mess outside, it’s not the time for winter white.  Nevertheless, both Cynthia Bailey and Melissa Gorga wore white in some sort of attempt to rush spring 2015.

The fanboy  bartender dissed Nene Leakes for not greeting her fans outside the door after Cinderella. Then Andy shows a still of the Bride of Frankenstein wig Nene wears next week. He asks for Cynthia’s thoughts. She says, “Bye, Wig.” Indeed, Cynthia, indeed.

Andy mentions Sheree on Millionaire Matchmaker and he plays a clip of her most obnoxious moments. Andy snickers and says he loves Sheree so much. I was totally expecting him to tsk and call her “sweetie.”

Andy asks Cynthia why she told Phaedra about the Mr. Chocolate thing. Cynthia said if the roles were reversed she would want Phaedra to give her the information. She was not intending to be accusatory, she was just providing information.

Andy asks about burning the friend contract. Cynthia laughs and says that was a bit dramatic. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Southern Discomfort

RHOA Kenya

It’s time for Real Housewives of Atlanta and frankly, I’m not sure what the storyline we are supposed to be looking forward to is. More Kandi and Todd marital disharmony? More Mr. Chocolate innuendo? I’m bored and it hasn’t even started yet. Meanwhile, I’m on injured reserve from three hours of really hard digging in the yard.  So bear with me as usual with the homophones and typos. I’m about to fall over.

Cynthia

It’s time for Cynthia to download Peter on what went down at the Mr. Chocolate dinner last week.  Meanwhile Porsha and Phaedra are at The Palm loading up on free food to go.  I think the scene with Porsha and Phaedra was another “pick-up” as most of Phaedra’s scenes are this season. It was filmed in mid to late November.  It is hysterical they are sitting there in some kind of boob revealing formal wear in an empty restaurant in an off hour when most people will show up in business casual. Did Phaedra did say about Kenya, ” She can’t help but bark?”  I love how both whores (allegedly) are going in on Kenya who was not even the messenger in this instance. Cynthia pointed out Phaedra’s whorish ways and Claudia outed Porsha participating in the world’s oldest profession, yet both of them have hard on for Kenya. Interesting.  Phaedra refers to Cynthia and Kenya as “ace boon coons” which apparently Bravo has recently decided can’t be said on the air without bleeping. Oh and they actually aired Porsha and Phaedra ordering two entrees each. I’m told it didn’t stop their these two loaded up their purses like Mama June at a Golden Corral. Porsha and Phaedra talk about Ebola and Africans.  Porsha starts trash talking Kandi to try to make ground with Phaedra. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Melts in Your Mouth, Not in Your Hands

 

RHOA Phaedra Fence

Phaedra

LOL We start with Apollo’s video he posted from the prison where he says he is about to “go asunder,” which always makes me wonder what he thought that meant during his wedding vows. And it ends with “you will be hearing from me shortly,” as if he thought he was going to do a podcast from prison or something. They really are milking this prison shit.

ROFLMAO. Phaedra is so full of shit. These fake ass security people. Taking the service elevator. She so wants people to believe there are paparazzi tailing her.  Jesus. She has to flag THEM down in LAX. Now she is talking about “the headmaster” (giggles) at the boys school. Wait so she took the boys to school from the hotel with all the security? Jesus. Those boys are in some day care. The rarely go, they are with the baby sitters and the nannies most of the time. All the parents on that cul de sac go to a variety of schools and have tons of get togethers with tons of neighbors in the area. They go to all sorts of private schools. Nary a one has ever seen any spawn of Phaedra at their school. Headmaster. /giggle.  This scene is hilarious. Waiting on the elevator by the high voltage door.

I don’t even know When this “return to the house” thing happened. We had another fake “return to the house scene” last week. How many times is she going to “return to the house?”  I love the giant Phine Body poster in the living room. Phaedra is such a victim in all of this. She just wants to kill Apollo with her bare hands and then embalm him and cremate him and flush him down the commode.  Okay. That’s not sociopathic at all.

Oh look fake scenes of Phaedra pretending she watches her kids.

A hilarious bullshit scene with a ridiculous “apostle”  praising  Jesus and sprinkling some water on the floor throughout the house occurs. Phaedra’s in her infinite biblical scholarship says that he has performed an exorcism. Lord have mercy this show is stupid tonight. Continue reading

Captain Lee is Back on Below Deck

 

Below deck claudia  lee

Captain Lee is back on Below Deck and filming for the upcoming season is almost over. That’s the good news. The bad news is I really lost interest in Below Deck last year as it became a show about trash talking the clients.  Each week I had guests contacting me telling me horror stories. Some guests were speaking for themselves and other guests. It got to the point that I no longer knew how to approach the story. Some people wanted to write things but were quoting people I had not spoken too. It was all an ugly mess and the story truly did need telling but it was becoming way too time consuming and the disgruntled guests seemed to be more disgruntled the longer I dallied in writing the piece.

Another problem I had was I have always liked Captain Lee. And some of the guests had some seriously hurt feeling about the things he said about them in his talking heads. I couldn’t see a way to explain the comment about dragging his dick a mile through broken glass rather than having some guests back on his ship. I couldn’t see taking out his remarks and leaving in everyone elses. It just became a headache. Continue reading

Kandi Burruss Talks About Her Marriage to Todd

WWHL with Kandi and Todd

This week only THREE of the RHOA posted blogs: Kenya, Claudia and Kandi. I’m actually surprised that Kandi posted at all but now that the housewives have the option of answering questions (which is much easier than writing a blog from scratch) since she has said many times she hates it, mostly because they don’t let her say what she wants to say.

I find it very odd that Nene isn’t blogging especially because she wasn’t on last week’s episode at all, the week before that there was not show, and this weekend there is no show. You would think she would not want her fans to forget about her. Or maybe she does want rating to lag now. She has been busy on the talk shows pretending like she is so over the drama. I finally watched most of her interview on Meredith Vieira the other day. It comes on at 2 am here. It was very odd. That show has changed since the last time I watched it and Meredith seems to be doing a more “serious” interview.  Nene was trying to speak the Queen’s English and over enunciating words like she had just come from speech therapy. The interview was about how ratchet all the other women on RHOA and how Nene is pure as the driven snow.  Nene talked about her being a white, black girl because of her blonde wigs. She doesn’t care what anyone says she is going to stay blond. Then she told her story about being the victim of domestic violence and a single mother who worked the polls to raise her po churren.  So perhaps that is why she is not blogging lately.

Phaedra probably knows this is her last season, and Cynthia has been at fashion week. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Goodbye Apollo, Hello Mr. Chocolate

Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia at STK Atlanta

Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia at STK Atlanta

Claudia Jordan

We start this episode of RHOA, refreshingly, with Team Pretty. Cynthia and Kenya go to see Claudia’s apartment now that she is fully moved in with all of her furniture. I read on one of her blogs that Cynthia had some issues with moving her furniture to Atlanta and several things were stolen. It looks to me like this apartment has been carefully staged by someone. *cough* production *cough* At any rate it’s really pretty and I love the building she is in with the views of downtown. Claudia fills the girls in on the Dish Nation party and her altercation with Porsha.  Claudia gets teary-eyed telling the story. She says it reminds her of when she was in high school and she was picked on for being bi-racial.

Claudia is struggling with getting up before dawn to get to the morning show. Porsha’s attitude isn’t helping her morning routine. Claudia meets with Rickey Smiley about her struggles at work and Porsha. Rickey suggests someone be the bigger person and apologize. Rickey goes to get Porsha and brings her in.  Porsha walks in with a jar of gummy bears in one of those fancy bags she is allegedly selling her vagina for. Porsha is acting like a 12-year-old. Rickey has the three of them hold hands and pray. Awkward.

Kandi Burruss

Todd and Kandi talk about Kandi’s part that she says Todd got her in Second Chance Christmas. I saw that movie because I love all Christmas movies. I’m already counting down to November to start all over again. Kandi’s part was small and she seemed just like Kandi to me. But still it was fun to see her acting.  Kandi and Todd are going to filming but Todd is staying for a week. Kandi says he is not really working but staying to party with his friends. Seriously. Why did these to even get married? And why are they “trying” to have a baby?  Kandi’s house is really pretty.

Kandi comes back from her trip without Todd. She had a fight with Todd in LA about her asking people business questions. Todd wants her to ask him because he is in the business.  Kandi says she and Todd aren’t really having sex unless she initiates it. They only have sex once a week. Kandi suspects Todd is cheating.  Kandi tells Carmon that if she was advising herself about Todd, she would say that they either need counseling or plan to divorce!

Kenya Moore

Kenya is working on the script for Life Twirls On. She working on a dildo scene. I’m just not excited about this show if it’s going to be a dildo show. We get enough of that with Kandi.

Kenya working on casting her show. Cynthia comes in to audition wearing some crazy outfit that she thinks makes her look Jamaican like the part is written. It’s not giving me Jamaica. Cynthia’s make-up is hideous and so is her hair. They give her the part.  Did Kenya just say that Leon has a part or that they have cast someone for Leon? Continue reading

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not really feeling the blog lately.  So tonight, I’m gonna let y’all write your own damn Real Housewives of Atlanta recaps. I’m not excited about the manufactured drama between Claudia and  THOT over Kordell,  or Kenya’s new show in the works with Roger Bobb, and I know the real story on Phaedra and Apollo.  So knock yourselves out in comments.

I don’t think we get to the part where Apollo actually leaves for Kentucky tonight. Lord knows, they will drag that out forever. But if you missed what really went down in the days just before his self surrender date, of September 10th, click through for the blow by blow.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Road Trip!

Clearly in Puerto RIco Kandi was still friends with Phaedra.

Nene

On tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies arrive back home from their trip. Nene’s personal valet picks her up at Hartsfield. Nene talks to Gregg about being around all those negative girls. LOL. Nene explains her version of the fight to Gregg. At that was all we saw of Nene. Expect to see less and less of her as the season goes on. This episode was also Porsha and Demetria free.

Phaedra

Phaedra and Derek J continue the fake storyline where Phaedra is representing  Derek who is accused of stealing used weave.  In the office that is not hers. I am so over this show and all it’s fakery. Phaedra’s momma comes in to talk about Apollo leaving for prison.

Meanwhile, Apollo takes the boys out for frozen yogurt and tries to prepare them for his departure. Apollo seems genuinely remorseful. Or at least sad that he has to leave his boys. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Divide and Ki-Ki

RHOA Claudia

On tonight’s RHOA, we begin back at the scene of the read heard ’round the world tonight.

Claudia: You’re worried about my clit and my bankruptcy and my finances, like why are you worried?
Nene: No hunni …
Claudia: You should worry about what you got going on, that great clothing line.
Nene: You wanna do what I do.
Claudia: I don’t want to glue hair to my forehead, I don’t wanna be a former stripper, people that’s carless…
Nene: I can glue hair to my forehead, girl I got all kinda cars right now, I don’t care what was repossessed, you just check my crib bitch, and see the cars in my garage when you lift the goddamn garage up! Don’t tell me what’s has been tell me what’s NOW! You wish you could get this check I get from them clothing lines! Then you could loan you some fashions because that is some cheap shit.
Claudia: And your dress is….
Nene: This off the runway.
Claudia: They don’t make your size for the runway
Nene: You better pull this zipper down and see…the make em when you got the coins.
Claudia: You overpaid. You can get that at Ross.
Nene: I know you don’t know what come down the runway considering what you got on spaghetti straps.
Claudia: Yeah, because I’ve never walked down a runway….you should have a little less spaghetti in your diet.
Nene: Girl, bye!  Hollywood ain’t looking for you.
Claudia: Atlanta is and I think that’s why you’re so bothered.
Nene: Me bothered by you?
Claudia: I didn’t know you were into Google searching me.
Nene: You  wish I would Google you with a bob.
Claudia: What’s wrong with a bob?
Nene: Nothing
Claudia: It’s better than a hair hat…
Nene: Girl? Bye, Girl.
Claudia: Bye. Are you leaving?
Nene: Listen to your boss. You weak hunni. Continue reading
