Well this should be an action packed show! I could do without Derek and Lawrence on this show since they are both SO over the top. They would be better being on with Kandi or someone boring. I have a feeling this is going to be like three cats fighting in a burlap bag, which is coincidentally what my ass looks like in khakis these days.
In the introductions, Andy says to say that she got a rise out of one of her fellow Atlanta housewives tonight would be putting it midly. Kenya looks great in orange. I love that she has on orange lipstick but not hideous neon lipstick, just a nice lovely shade to match her dress.
Andy asks Miss Lawrence about Phaedra’s comments about Nene calling to check on her every day. He says everyone needs friends. Andy asked Kenya if it surprised her. She said no, it seems they have a bit of friendship going on, if it is by default or whatever, they seem to have something going on. Andy says that Porsha threw shade at Kenya and plays the clip of Porsha making fun of flirting with the waiter. Kenya says that it’s sad. She was being friendly to the waiter. Being friendly to the staff doesn’t mean that you are flirting with them. And shame to the people who think that was flirting. Shame to me I guess then. It was definitely flirting. We’ve been over this a thousand times. Kenya would flirt with a mop bucket it you drew eyes and a moustache on it. And that’s fine! That’s part of her perky personality. Who cares? Continue reading
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 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
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
Kenya weighed in today with her Bravo Blog where she discusses the dramatic(ally stages) exit of Apollo and Phaedra (and picks a side!). She also talks about #Phonegate and how Mr. Trump believes her when she claims to have nothing to do with the phone’s disappearance or the tweet.
She also talks ever so briefly about her auditions for Life Twirls On. Mostly about Cynthia saying, ” Cynthia was amazing! As an actor you have to be willing to take chances, make and commit to strong choices. This project is important to me, because it’s not only being completely financed by my company, but it is what I enjoy doing the most in my professional career. I love creating projects and producing. The great thing about Cynthia’s audition is that she came to play. I love it when an actor goes for broke and that she did!”

I was up late working on this post last night when I discovered that my connection had been lost. I am none to pleased to log on this morning and find nothing saved but the Youtube. I’m going to have to give you the short version as I have things to do today if I am going to keep my Lent agreements.
So Janet Hubert was the first Aunt Viv on Fresh Prince of Bel Air. There was all sorts of scandal about her leaving the show. I seem to remember that she got pregnant, and that was written into the show, but problems continued and she was replaced with another actress. Not sure what happened there but there was some talk about her being difficult to work with. Will Smith never seemed to work well with her.
So no she does a Blactress FaceBook account and a Youtube Parody Show.
Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia at STK Atlanta
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.
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 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

I have not independently verified this information, but it seems credible and LaLate usually knows what they are talking about. So who’s in to watch Life Twirls On!?
This is how I feel about doing a blog tonight.

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.
Just received this interview with Brandi Glanville for Gossip Girl. I have some thoughts. Be sure to read the entire interview at Gossip Girl because I am just going to hit a few highlights. My comments will be in purple after the actual Q&A
Gossip Girl: Is there drama with your ex to clear up?
Brandi Glanville: The gossip is ongoing. We co-parent, we have two amazing little boys, and we get along. We have our issues. We have two different households, two different sets of rules, so we have to talk because of our kids. But what you’re seeing on Housewives right now was four months ago.
TT: It must be a struggle for Eddie and LeAnn to get along with someone who is constantly shitfaced on TV. Say what you will about Eddie and LeAnn but I don’t see either of them falling down drunk in the tabloids. Sure LeAnn has had some strange moments on stage…but not as bad as say Mariah Carey. Eddie has enough sense to keep the boys off of RHOBH despite the fact that Brandi wants to have them on to be like the other moms. Most of the RHOBH viewing audience is perplexed that Eddie has not sought full custody. Perhaps he is waiting for the rehab stint to bolster his case even further? Those poor boys must be going through hell at public school everyday. I bet if Eddie had full custody, LeAnn would spring for private (perhaps boarding, but still…) school. Either would be preferable to the boys being exposed to Brandi’s behavior. Continue reading
Kenya’s Winning Task
UPDATED WITH LINK TO BRANDI AND KENYA ON TODAY SHOW THIS MORNING. http://www.today.com/video/today/56922977#56922977
Before Kenya even comes out, Wendy has already stated the obvious about Kenya tweeting from Vivica’s phone. Although Kenya’s hardcore fans are in some sort of deep, DEEP, denial over the situation, it’s abundantly obvious that is what happened.
Kenya comes out looking stunning in orange. Wendy asked her if she had anything to do with the whole menopause thing. Kenya says “absolutely not.” Um, Kenya you brought up menopause in the boardroom and you tweeted about it after the fact. So that’s a lie. Kenya says she finds the whole thing quite ridiculous. Kenya says she was a strong player who did not need to resort to such ridiculousness to win. But she did. Kenya says the show is a meritocracy and people should win on their own merit and she brought a lot to the table.
Wendy says to Kenya, “You were a very smart player but I don’t believe a word you are saying.” Kenya just laughs and laughs. Kenya says that people are entitled to their opinions. If you want to believe it you do, and if you don’t you don’t. She says she was made a scapegoat on the show. She says they tried to fire her the week before and she fought her way out of it (Not quite, she played a dumb girl that managed to talk herself into getting fired. Now that was GENIUS.) Oh wait last week was when she got Kate Gosselin fired. That was pretty good boardroom maneuvering too. She just took it way too far this week with the phone incident and gave Vivica her rightful place in the final three. She fucked up. Continue reading
