Nene’s Odd Hospitalization Story Plus The Timeline Issue

RHOA Nene Mexico

GIF BY RealityTVGIFs a GIF blog by T. Kyle MacMahon The best source for animated Real Housewives GIFs.

On last night’s RHOA finale, as well as WWHL, we were treated to a variety of versions of the Nene Leakes hospitalization story. At the time, I had a lot of questions, but Sunday night is my busiest blogger night and that is not the time to stop and do my research.  So I did some this morning. Here are my thoughts on Nene’s hospitalization.

On November 18th, 2013 Nene was rushed to the hospital by Gregg.  The scene we saw of them on the couch at their home last night chatting about her possibly needing to go to the hospital and Gregg trying to give her Alka Seltzer was all filmed after the season was done filming. None of that was real and was part of the possible cover story that Nene came up with to explain her hospitalization. At this point, we have no idea why Nene was really hospitalized, but the more she tries to tell the version of what happened she would like for us to believe, the more she screws it up.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Finale Recap: Final Curtain Call

 

Kenya

Why were there no first looks this week? Getting the first 8 minutes ahead of time really helps in the set up process! We begin the RHOA finale with Kandi rehearsing in her living room and she really sounds great. Todd and Kandi are worried about ticket sales. Kandi says that after the play, it’s time to get started planning the wedding. Kandi brings up the pre-nup again.

I like Kenya just fine but I just don’t get making a big ass production on TV over the death of her dog. I can see the crying scenes telling her cast mates about the passing, but not some road site funeral mess. And what the motherfuck is she wearing?  Did her aunt just call the urn a urine. Where the hell are they? I just can’t with this. I didn’t watch Sonja burying her dog on camera this season, but personally, I can do without this. Just like the three episodes of slow death of Abby Lee Miller’s mom on Dance Moms.  I don’t watch these shows for televised despair.

Ayden and Apollo made a cake to congratulate Phaedra on graduating from mortuary school. She wants to buy a crematorium. Sidenote: Ayden was sporting a large Band-Aid on his forehead. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Mess Rehearsal

RHOA Don JuanWe begin with Porsha in the studio. I was prepared for her to sound like Kim Zolciak, or the Countess, but she is actually not so bad. I’ve read good things about her song Flatline on my twitter feed but haven’t bothered to check it out. I’m definitely interested in what y’all have to say. The song she is recording here is called Perfectly Worthless. I wonder who is writing her songs because the writing is not bad. The universe seems to disagree with me since some lighting or something falls on her as she is recording.

Porsha is apparently spending time in the studio instead of going to play practice. She has missed numerous rehearsals. Kandi arrives at the studio and she  is not amused.

Nene is in LA meeting with Steven Grossman, her manager, who apparently is a miracle worker and the one that does all the hustling to get Nene bookings. Yet, she walks into the room publically insulting him saying she is looking for a little short man, when she knows exactly where he is.  Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Nene.  Nene is there to approve some sketches for her “fashion line” with HSN. (I thought it was Kmart. Or Sear. Or the Salvation Army. ) She of course makes it sound like HSN tracked her down and begged her to come on board. Continue reading

Nene Leakes Drunk Off Her Azz at Mr. Chow

RHOA Kenya and Nene Laugh

Happier Times….

Last night after DWTS, Nene headed out to the biggest hotbed of paparazzi in L.A. Mr. Chow. Now here is the thing. This restaurant is where minor celebs go when they want to be photographed and filmed by TMZ and she was.  She has gone there before for this very purpose. This was her plan. So why on earth did she get so wasted?

We certainly didn’t get the teary-eyed humbled version of Nene she presents on Dancing With the Stars. Nope. We got drunk and obnoxious Nene. When asked about the attack on Kenya at the reunion, Nene’s response was, ” She stupid. She need to fix her fake booty.” Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: With Friends Like These

RHOA Nene Mexico

GIF BY RealityTVGIFs a GIF blog by T. Kyle MacMahon The best source for animated Real Housewives GIFs.

It is very telling that the title of this episode, With Friends Like These, refers to Cynthia realizing that her friends contract with Nene is essentially null and void. Nene gets the episode on disk the week it airs and this likely prompted her recent comments about “friends” and people “diminishing her character.” Nene cannot stand getting “the bad edit” and this season has been a doozy for her in that regard.

The show begins in Mexico where their last evening is coming to a close. Peter and Gregg are bumping heads a little bit when the women arrive. Nene sticks her nose smack in the middle of the men’s business and tells Peter that he needs to keep his nose out of women’s business. #hypocrite While I realize that Peter does tend to be a bit gossipy at times, in this instance, he is right. He is allowed to have an opinion about Nene’s behavior at Kenya’s charity ball. He kept it to himself until his wife met him in the parking lot. Nene is the one who got into a marital conversation and started puffing up her chest. Continue reading

Exclusive: Porsha Williams Fired From Real Housewives of Atlanta!

Kenya Talking Head 2014

Finally hearing  from sources about the melee at the Real Housewives Reunion yesterday. Before I tell you what I heard, let me tell you a few things about sources. My sources and other Atlanta bloggers sources are most likely not the same people. I don’t know for sure because I don’t reveal mine and they don’t reveal theirs.  So today you will probably hear more than one version of what went down.  Remember after Pajama Brawl 2013 none of people who were there, and who participated, told the same version of what happened. I say all this so you can save your breath when someone else with a good source comes out and says something different.  Remember none of the sources are supposed to be talking and they don’t spill the whole story all the time. More importantly, just like us, the person doing the telling is biased toward one housewife or the other.

So this is what my exclusive source is saying, which isn’t a whole lot. Frankly, I want to hear the play-by-play but my relationship to sources is a delicate balance of getting as much as I can for you guys without pissing off any sources by pestering them for information. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Films Tomorrow!

Real housewives of Atlanta

This should be an exclusive unless my source got chatty. It’s finally time for the RHOA to film the reunion episode and there is so much potential for disaster! First of all both Kenya and Nene will have to leave their current engagements to fly in to the ATL.  This won’t be much of an issue for Nene because she and Tony have already secured rehearsal space here for when Nene has to be in Atlanta. So she is likely already back here. But Kenya is working on Celebrity Apprentice all day today and then flying out tonight and likely flying back right after the reunion.  For that reason Andy won’t be able to keep everyone there until the wee hours of the morning like he tends to do. They are going to have to do this down and dirty this time!

So what can we expect? LOTS of drama that is what.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Mexi-Loco

RHOA Mexico

Tonight, on the RHOA,  we return to Mexico where it is 1:35 a.m. and Kenya and Apollo are in a one-on-one conversation at the bar that seems to have been rented out just for this scene. Enter Phaedra. I love how Kenya is all nonchalant with her “Hey Girl!” reaction. Wow, they showed that in the preview but not on the actual episode. Anyway, Kenya and Apollo try to explain themselves to Phaedra who looks like she is about to hit both of them upside the head with her yellow, bedazzled, pocketbook.

Nene and Porsha are finally given their cue to arrive. It was a bad call by production. They should have held those two up at least another ten minutes. Also, the editing last week was that Kenya was crashing a boys night out. Not true. Kenya said on her blog that everyone was invited and the usual suspects arrived late AGAIN.  Gregg walks in with Nene. Was he there at the cigar party last week? Anyway, as Apollo says, he was saved by the bell.

Phaedra walks out of the bar and Nene and Porsha follow her like ducklings. Does that make sense to anyone? No, no it doesn’t. Even odder is that Gregg is not in Nene’s wake when they leave. Ah, they are not actually leaving, they are angling for camera time. Phaedra has a drama so they need to get up in it or else they did their hair for nothing. Kandi smartly hangs with Todd. Kenya and Apollo agree to squash things and be friends. They shake on it. Gregg and Nene and Porsha try to give Apollo marital advice. Read that sentence again, because that happened. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Flirting With Disaster

Nene in Mexico

So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!

Kenya and Miss Lawrence are enjoying a meal on Kenya’s beautiful private patio. The scripted conversation is about  Porsha and Kordell. Remember last week when I said it seemed odd that we spent so much time ganging up on Porsha? Well now I really want to know the story. Did Kordell call up Bravo threatening a lawsuit over this whole Kordell is gay storyline? No, that can’t be it because pretty much all of the conversation continues to be about Kordell’s sexuality. I just don’t understand the point of discussing some dude who isn’t even on the show anymore. Why do we have to spend so much time humiliating Porsha, Kenya? Why must you continue to try to have a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent?

Speaking of the mentally challenged, Kenya moves on to discuss Apollo. Kenya says that Apollo is lying about Kenya coming on to him. She says if he could have, he would have. I agree with that. That doesn’t mean I am 100% sure they didn’t.  I mean Kenya needs love too… Miss Lawrence is ever so dutifully agreeing with everything that Kenya says. Kenya plans to pull Apollo aside at some point on the trip and get him to stop lying about her. That should go well.

They gang is headed over to the underground caves. Kenya wants to take them out into nature. Now Kenya, you know these women don’t have no shoes for the real world! In the car ride over Kenya and Cynthia and Apollo start talking about the Mama Joyce issue. What the hell is wrong with these people? These are not normal vacation conversations. Production needs to trust and believe that the cast can write their own scripts. It would be much more interesting that Peter sticking his nose into everyone else’s relationships all the time. They started an argument between Kandi and Todd. Mission accomplished.

In the other car, they are mostly talking about the outdoor showers. That is a normal conversation. And the script provided to both cars was to talk about the seating arrangement from dinner the night before where the couples were spilt up. Why are they acting like this is so weird. It’s actually proper protocol for a dinner with a bunch of married couples. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: He Said, She Said

Kenya Moore RHOA

So, I feel somewhat obligated to recap last night’s RHOA; however,  I don’t have much to say about it. Maybe I am just burning out, but I thought it was a pretty boring episode.  So if it okay, I’m just going to toss our some random thoughts.

Phaedra and Apollo seem to hate each other more than usual. Phaedra hasn’t seemed like she is getting any in several seasons. I would assume sex is probably the only useful quality that Apollo has. If they don’t even have that going on, I just don’t see why they are together at all.  Also, who gives small children a bottle of cleaning solution and a rag as a toy?

Is there no end to the amount of talking heads Phaedra does about Kenya being a whore? She is still carrying on about Kenya and Apollo  horse playing around the pool from LAST SEASON! She needed to have a deadly serious conversation with Apollo about that at the time and end the discussion. This is just making her look like she is insecure in her marriage and that Kenya is a huge threat. Kenya must be feeling very satisfied with the amount of thought and energy that Phaedra spends on her.

Why did we need to hear from Kordell on his thoughts on the divorce? Why was Peter acting like the male Wendy Williams interviewing Kordell about his marriage? Who does that? It was like two little old hens gossiping at a PTA meeting! Continue reading

Real Housewive of Atlanta (Not A Recap): A Spoon Coon

oh hell to the noe. So y’all know I get in a bad headspace sometimes. There is something going on the universe, as ‘rica would say. The ghetto is very restless.  I am what I call, “in the hole.”  Which means lots of very self destructive behavior and self medication. Apparently there is a knife wielding man in my neighborhood whose girlfriend attempted to flee to my house. I don’t open my door to NO BOD EE. EVER if I don’t know you. I accidently ran into one of my lawn guys at the beer store who convinced me to let him clean up my yard. He told me her whole story after she TRIED TO OPEN MY DOOR.

I just want to pull the covers over my head. But I want you to  have  a place to talk about tonight’s RHOA despite my lack of ability to recap it.

Plus I already know what is going to be y’alls big ass deal of the week.  Y’all are WAY more into WORDS than I am. I was raised with the “sticks and stones” philosophy.  I’ve been called every name in the book.  My teachers thought it was fascinating that I was raised in Libya, so they always included it in my introductions on the first day. This inevitably resulted in me being deemed the “sand nigger.” Sadly, by that point in my young life that was the least of my fucking problems. I could give a shit about words..  I bring this up to say that someone said something about Nene Leakes presenting herself as a  “coon show” and the PC  police most all of whom I suspect to be white, having some sort of hissy fit.  Do not tell me what to moderate. I am generally aware of what is posted on my blog.  I have said NUMEROUS times myself that Nene Leakes is pure coonery and buffoonery for Bravo and NBCUniversal.  It is what it is. Continue reading
