If you haven’t been over to read Kenya’s Real Housewives of Atlanta blog you probably should. It’s a bit lengthy for those with short attention spans, but it’s well-written and makes a lot of good points. If you would to just read my thoughts on the blog, here are five bulleted points that came to my mind as I read her blog.
- Nene cannot give or receive an apology. Kenya has apologized to Nene for “her part” in the Pajama Brawl on numerous occasions, despite being treated rudely by Nene from the moment she arrived. AND despite the fact that a lot of us don’t think she did anything to apologize for and was merely sticking up for herself when being attacked by a man! Nene on the other hand ranted at her guests like a caged animal and continues to deny any blame for what happened. Continue reading
Apologies in advance if the recaps come out a little slower tonight. I’m having laptop issues on my end and using a temporary keyboard I am not used to. We start tonight with one of those staged husband and wife scenes where Nene and Gregg recount for the cameras the previous nights events. Let me just start by saying that Nene is telling it all wrong.
This “she said,she said” that happened last week about the event being to “honor Nene.” Is manufactured. Kenya held a charity event and selected a charity that Nene claims involvement with as a way to smooth things over with Nene. She did not use Nene’s name to invite people to the event. She selected a charity that Nene claims to support in an attempt to placate Nene after the whole Pajama Brawl situation. Nene made herself look stupid. No one else had a hand in that. A simple, “Thank you all for coming out for this worthy cause. I hope you will all consider making a donation to one of my favorite charities.” would have sufficed. Now Nene is trying to say she was bullied into attending the ball. Continue reading

We begin tonight’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta at the J Spot! Girl, Miss Lawrence sure did get lucky with Bravo. He has been promoting his salon and hair services for many seasons and they frequently film at his store. Then he lands Fashion Queens?! He’s probably making more coin than some of the actual housewives! Tonight Marlo is in the salon getting her weave ironed. I cannot believe Bravo let our favorite felon back on the show. But lately, there are almost more people with federal charges pending than housewives with a clear record! I wonder if this is before or after the event where Nene tried to get Marlo arrested for assault? I sure hope they air that scene before the season ends! Nene was throwing a flinger!
Anyway, tonight Kenya is hosting a charity ball and Marlo is invited. The two ladies meet up at the J-Spot to have some girl talk. Kenya tells Miss Lawrence and Marlo the scoop on pajama brawl. They discuss their previous battles with Nene, and Kenya explains she is going to hold a fancy charity ball to raise money for Nene’s Favorite charity in order to get back in her good graces. Does Kenya not know that Nene’s favorite charity is Nene’s Louboutin Fund? I think she overestimates Nene’s ability to be charitable. I’m just saying.
Kandi is holding auditions for her play which by all accounts did very well on it’s Atlanta run despite the hilarious things we have seen in the casting call scenes. I assure you, most of those people do not represent the talent that Atlanta has to offer. It’s time for Porsha’s audition for the role of Kandi’s character’s younger sister, Jada. Porsha could not be bothered to memorize her lines, nor could she be arsed to cold read them as written. Her voice was up about three octaves and she spoke in a valley girl voice. She sang “His Eye is On the Sparrow” in a way over the top way. However, I think with a little coaching from Kandi, she would be alright in this small role. Continue reading

Nene Leakes has been having a really bad couple of weeks. However, for Valentine’s Day she has grabbed her boo, Gregg and flown down to Miami. The couple escaped the still slushy streets of Atlanta for sunshine and temperatures heading toward 80 degrees this week. The lovebirds were seen just over and hour ago having a romantic dinner at Prime 112 a luxury steak house located on Ocean Drive in the old Brown’s Hotel building. The area is known as the area the paparazzi like to swarm, like the Mr. Chow’s of Miami as far as getting photographed goes. So while taking a little time at the beach and clearing one’s head sounds like just what the doctor ordered for Mrs. Leakes, she just can’t help but romp through a throng or two of paparazzi first. Here today, TMZ tomorrow…Happy Valentines Day Gregg and Nene!
It’s been two weeks since the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and when last we left the ghetto peaches their men were brawling in their underwear. Tonight, we resume and it is the womens’ turn to try and turn things up. Please note, I will not be referencing Chuck Smith, AKA Big Homie in his own mind, at all during this scene as he will remain ensconced between the fireplace and his wife’s coat tails for the entire drama.
We begin with Phaedra continuously repeating “we need to leave” despite the fact that absolutely no one, and surely not Apollo is paying her the least bit of attention. Once again, Kenya speaks the truth in her talking head. Nene started all of this with her shit stirring questions and now that everything went left she is trying to wash her hands of the whole situation. Nene makes a dramatic and illiterate announcement, “This ain’t about gettin’ all crunk with no fisteses and stuff!” Porsha tells her sister “we ain’t sign up for no shit like that!” and they leave. It seems like Porsha is going to stroll through the lobby of the Intercontinental in a bright orange bra and panty set and a very see through white dress.
Christopher Williams and Nene seem to be on the same
drugs page and are hugging it out. Natalie’s face indicates that she is not thrilled her man is in a very long embrace with a half-nekkid woman in mullet lingerie. Christopher decides the best thing to do is make another announcement. He says, ” You have to be a strange person to walk up to somebody and tell them (approaches Nene) I know Gregg better than you….” His thoughts are so disjointed I am not even going to recap them. It seems like an attempt to get on his wife’s/girlfriend’s? good side. He accuses Kenya of being “on molly” (ecstasy). Well, KENYA didn’t appear to be on anything but now I have a good idea what he and perhaps a couple of others were on. I mean what’s a “pillow talk” party without some X? Thanks for spilling your own tea there, Christopher. Continue reading

Nene and Gregg Leakes for Sears (Twitter)
I’ve noticed that Nene and Gregg Leakes have been in NYC for the past several weeks. Knowing that Nene is never one to stop hustling her brand, I’ve been dying to know what she is up to. She has been networking with several members of the RHONY for one thing. Sure, the meeting with Sonja Morgan kind of went to the left, but Nene knows that contacts are contacts. She has been working hers into the ground. It has always appeared that Nene was sidling up to Kim Kardashian, that rich bitch, to discover new ways to make some coin, and she is at it again. This time, Nene has decided to join the Kardashians and a few other “celebrities” to partner with Sears and Kmart to promote the website ShopYourWay.Com Continue reading
Holy crap! When was this filmed? Crap. I have no idea what is wrong with my TV but it keeps going out. It looks like a problem with my dish! UGH. I missed the walk out. Todd is not on the show, It’s just Apollo, Greg and Peter. It looks like this was filmed on or around January 20th when the WWHL show was filmed. Apollo Nida turned himself in on January 23rd. So who knows who knew the arrest was coming in a couple of days.
Bethenny starts talking about Peter and Cynthia’s book. Bethenny asks how often a couple should have sex. She is obsessed with this question and asks EVERYONE who comes on the show. Apollo says, “whenever the man wants it!” The audience boos Apollo! Bethenny says so how often is that? Apollo says he gets it whenever he wants it. Bethenny continues to press. Apollo says ”I mean I’m kinda busy
with criminal activities and all so about 3….4 times a week. ” Gregg says he needs more than that. Bethenny asks how often Gregg wants it and he says, “I’m married to Nene Leakes!”
Bethenny clears up what I have been saying all along. THE HUSBANDS DO NOT GET PAID. Thank you. Some of y’all refuse to believe that. Husbands and children do not get paid. Continue reading
I’m so excited to see Dwight back on my TV on tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta! Phaedra is planning a “blessing” or an “inauguration” for Mr. President. She sold the story to the tabloids as a “traditional African naming ceremony.” Whatever she calls it, it can’t possibly be as offensive as Ayden’s televised fiasco. At least she is not doing whatever this is in a church. She has rented a house for the party. Why not just have it in her house? I guess because of the renovations. Phaedra is in full put on mode. It’s a presidential theme, natch. You know, just like all the other traditional African naming ceremonies you’ve been to. Red, White and Blue champagne?
Cynthia is telling Peter about the dinner with all of the girls the other night. Cynthia is a bit irritated with Kandi for saying that Peter has a past. I really didn’t think it was a big deal or that Kandi meant anything by it. She just said we all have a past and that doesn’t necessarily dictate the future. Well, unless we are talking about Apollo. Allegedly. Cynthia is telling Peter this because they are planning to go to a couples pajama party at Nene’s and she wants him to be up to speed. But really, this is just going to make Peter go after Kandi at the party.
Kenya is still pretending to be trying to have a baby. I’m not sure these scenes even need to be recapped. Basically the doctor tells her that her eggs are still too damn old. Um, duh.
Kandi and Todd and Don Juan are talking about casting for the play. Don Juan is throwing shade about Porsha singing in the play. Kandi has confidence in Porsha. Did any of y’all go see the play? Todd brings up Christopher Williams and Kandi gives him the side eye. Don Juan knows what is coming and excuses himself. Then Kandi tells Todd about Christopher’s wife, Natalie, calling him an opportunist. Todd is not feeling a pajama party.
More Kenya silliness. Kenya and Miss Lawrence try to pick up a sperm donor at the sperm bank. Continue reading

I wish they would have kept the camera on him the whole time rather than showing a RHOA Clip. All that face touching is a huge body language tell for lying. Notice he did not do it on any other questions.
Sorry for the delay y’all. I’m in a narcoleptic phase and I just hit the wall last night with the RHOA post. Blood Sweat and Heels will be up shortly. But first I am dying to see this episode of WWHL.
Nene and Phaedra are there in the audience. Nene has been in NYC this week for some reason. Phaedra has to go with Apollo to keep him from cheating, I assume. Also, Todd’s mom is there. Why? And Andy’s beard is gone.
The poll question is who would you rather out of the men?
Andy asks Todd what his reaction was to seeing all the drama about him? Todd says it was a little tough. Todd says he has always been cool with Christopher and Natalie. He says he dated Natalie’s friend in high school and they later reconnected in their twenties and neither one of them had anything.
Next we revisit the Apollo and Kenya sexting scandal that never happened AGAIN. Apollo says that he loves his wife, and then repeats the foot in his mouth comment that Peter told him never to say! He says he loves his wife and he would never step outside of his marriage, but if he wanted to he could have. Oh Apollo. Continue reading
Carlos King posted this on his instagram to tease tonight’s episode
It’s time for another episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta! I’ve been doing some technical blog maintenance on the all day today and I’m excited to get another recap going! Let’s see what the ladies have in store for us tonight! I haven’t even watched the first looks yet, so I am looking forward to every bit of tonight’s episode!
Can you believe it has been three years since Cynthia and Peter got married? Lord, we waste a lot of our lives watching this shit. I am so glad to know you guys are doing it with me. It makes me feel less ridiculous about my television view habits. But really, Cynthia and Peter have been married longer than I’ve had this blog! #holdme
Cynthia and Peter are at Bar One. It will be interesting to see if they follow the extensive (23!!!) list of rules for customers of Bar One. So far they don’t even have a table and had to ask for a server. Cynthia orders a Vodka pineapple (no top shelf vodka mentioned on camera) and Peter orders a Ketel One and tonic with two limes. As the reviews state, the server barely seems interested in fetching a drink despite being miced and serving the owners. They are meeting their friends Christopher Williams and his wife Natalie. Jeez it’s another Cynthia and Peter do not have sex story. They are setting this up for Natalie being a friend of the housewives.
Natalie claims to have known Todd and says her good friend dated him. She says her good friend dated him and he broke her heart by cheating on her. She says, “Todd had a straight hustle, don’t ever get that twisted.” I wonder how Todd feels about Bravo production, his FRIENDS selling his ass out for storyline. This is so fabricated it is not even the slightest bit amusing. Natalie claims Todd is an opportunist.Peter and Cynthia go across the street to her modeling agency and Peter has candles burning everywhere and Christopher Williams sings a special song just for Cynthia. It was sweet. Then Peter and Cynthia have a romantic dinner alone at the modeling agency. Continue reading

I’ve already discussed the first few scenes of this episode, here. Phaedra and Kandi snark on Chuck. And Mallory seems to have an ulterior motive for showing up. It is not “mending fences” as she says, it’s more like running Peter out of Cynthia’s life.
Mostly, I actually feel sorry for Kenya. Whether her dad really is this critical or just doing it on national TV because it is in the script, he is just awful. I’m no Kenya fan, but I am starting to feel some compassion for her based on the crappy hand she was dealt in the parents department.
Porsha met with her divorce lawyer to discuss the fact that they were unable to mediate and will be letting the judge decide the settlement. I thought it was funny that the attorney actually pointed out to her that she would need to pay them from her settlement. Continue reading
