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.

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Puerto Read-0

Team Pretty in Puerto Rico

Team Pretty in Puerto Rico

I’m not sure if we actually even GET to Puerto Rico tonight based on the episode description. In case you missed my tea during filming, you can read it here.   It’s interesting to note that at this time, Demetria was still holding a peach and Claudia was not. Perhaps the drama on this trip was the catalyst for Bravo changing their mind for the millionth time about who would be on the show.

Claudia

Claudia goes to the foot doctor with Kenya. She has terrible feet from being an athlete and a model. I don’t need to see her feet. But the doctor was cute.

Kandi

Kandi meets up with Demetria for lunch to apologize to her about the Roger Bobb thing at the sex party.  Demetria sucks up to Kandi. Ah, and here is why. She wants to work with Kandi. Kandi is not interested.  Kandi gives Demetria some very specific sex advice. #FixItJesus Continue reading

Kenya is taking center stage on Celebrity Apprentice on NBC on Mondays.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta is also airing on Sunday nights on Bravo.  Joining Kenya are Cynthia, Claudia, Lawrence and one other very surprising friend.  Click through for more pictures and the big reveal. Nene is NOT going to like this. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: 50 Shades of Shade

RHOA Phaedra face

Tonight, Kenya Moore will be on TV for three and a half hours spanning three shows on two networks.  Will this blogger make it through the entire time?  To be honest, I’m not sure I will get to WWHL before tomorrow. But we will see. Tonight on RHOA, Cynthia and Peter shop for a new location for Bar One, and Kandi has a sex party where Claudia and Nene come face to face.

CYNTHIA

Peter and Cynthia go to look at a new bar space down on Auburn Avenue. There is a lot of trash and debris, but the space has good bones. And the area has historical roots and has been gentrifying over the years. Cynthia wants you to know that her money is Peter’s money and they are business partners and she doesn’t care what we think about that. What I think about it is that these two are stretched out with two bars and Cynthia’s Modeling Agency.  That’s a lot of headaches.

CLAUDIA

Claudia goes to meet with Kandi. She is looking to her as sort of a mentor and ally for the season. Kandi invites Claudia to be a guest on Kandi Koated Nights. Claudia and Kandi talk about Claudia knowing Porsha from Miami. They have African friends in common. Claudia says she was sitting right next to Porsha when she said she was looking to hook up with an African. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: She Can’t Come Like No Cabbage!

RHOA nene nasty rude

 

I just read the little synopsis for this episode and I’m telling you right now I am so over the Kandi and Todd storyline. It never ceases to amaze me how Bravo can manipulate our little pea brains to like or hate the same person from season to season. I really liked Kandi at first, then I was neutral, and now I could not be more over her.

CYNTHIA

Cynthia takes Claudia to Derek J’s for a make-over.

CLAUDIA

Claudia’s Italian mother, and  her black grandmother on her father’s side are in town for a visit. Claudia’s mom brought snail salad for her. Apparently, that is a thing.  She takes them straight to Lips, a drag queen restaurant.  Claudia’s  mother is pressuring her to have a baby. Claudia’s mother has never said “I love you.” The 90 year old grandmother says it to Claudia all the time. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Nice to Metria

RHOA Kandi

I don’t know if it is the crap weather, or the fact that my days and nights are sort of backwards, or the lack of sunlight, or what but there just seems to be a big cloud of negativity everywhere. I guess it is sort of fitting for tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta because tonight we finally get Demetria. Word on the street is she is full of negativity for the first part of filming. Plus Apollo is back. The editing this season is crazy out of order and odd.

KANDI

Kandi’s family is all getting together at Aunt Nora’s house for a cookout. Mama Joyce is mad at Kandi for talking about her boyfriend tearing up Kandi’s house.  OMG! I want to eat some of all that! Oh dear, homemade red velvet cake!

Aunt Nora makes Kandi sit down and talk with her mother. Mama Joyce says she is taking medicine to try not and get an aneurism. She is trying to be calm. Nothing is resolved but they sort of agree to put things inside.

Phaedra stops over at Kandi’s and Kandi is trying to eat healthy because she wants to get pregnant. Phaedra says things are tense. Kandi has a cousin who just happens to be there to talk to Phaedra about how to tell her boys their daddy is going to prison. He has been to prison or something. This is a ridiculous scene and it’s clear Phaedra is not happy to be filming it.  Oh Melvin’s dad is in prison and he resents not being told.  I love the red leather handbag Phaedra is carrying. Kandi and Phaedra cry. Phaedra looks really  pretty. Continue reading
