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

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

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

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

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

Why is Nene chatting with Vivica Fox? What was the point of that? Is Vivica like really hard up for air time or something? That made no sense. Now Nene is taking her aunt dress shopping at some sort of pic-n-save store. She claims she doesn’t have for time this. Give your aunt the Neimans card, call the personal shopper and tell her to put her in a dress.
All of Nene’s kids and Gregg’s kids go out to a Mexican restaurant. Even the glambaby came. Nene is going on and on about how important family is but she will not even acknowledge the existence of her sisters. Now her dad has decided not to come to the wedding.
The boys all went out to party. My DVR is now paused on Peter dancing with some big earringed ho and staring at her chest. I’m gonna call it right now that this episode will piss Cynthia off. I wouldn’t mind the stripper thing (which I assume is coming) but going out to the club and dancing with other women is unacceptable. Some of these chicks are stripper and some are not. I’d like to point out they are not at one of the nicer strip clubs in Atlanta either. This is straight up Skanksville. Hmm, it’s called the Shark Bar & Grille. They should probably just all it the Tuna Bar & Grille. Why would anyone want to eat in a place with wall to wall skanks? Then they get on the party bus with three skanks in tow and spank them all the way to their next destination. Looks like they stripped them butt naked too! Continue reading

I’ve had a lot of people asking about all sorts of bizarre rumors floating around about the situation between Nene and Marlo. If you missed my first report on this click here first. So I thought I would do a short post to clear some things up. Some of y’all have it in your heads that Nene is going to quit RHOA over this. Not a chance in hell of that happening. When RHOA eventually goes to the great reality show in the sky, Nene is going to be right back to being poor. She is going to ride her cash cow until Bravo bucks her off.
Some of you think Marlo is getting fired over the incident. You seem to think that Nene does the hiring and firing. Now Nene can ask for someone to film with the show, as she stupidly did for Marlo this season, but she can’t get Marlo fired. For one, Bravo loves the drama. Marlo is back to give Kenya a storyline. Marlo is not from Atlanta. The other housewives are not particularly fond of Kenya. This season you can expect these two to be two peas in a pod. Blech. Plus Marlo is just a friend and not a full housewife. AND filming is all but over. Continue reading
Okay, that’s headline is pretty much all I have for right now. Nene tweeted just before 11 pm that the cops from the APD ”was so great.” Then about 1 am she tweeted, “Some people just belong n jail! See u court.” Will this be another housewife in criminal court? It’s about 2:30 now and it seems like the Neenster is probably home safely tucked in bed, as I should be. I know it’s not a huge story yet, I just thought I would give you guys the heads up. I am off to take one of my great sleeps!
Update 2: Just a couple of thoughts, if Bravo let Marlo back even as a “friend of”, knowing she was convicted several violent offenses, and Marlo struck Nene… they could have a legal problem on their hands despite their iron clad contracts. Also, Nene has been tweets A LOT about how great her husband Gregg is, he put up a sign for I Dream of Nene on top of a Barber Shop where they filmed, etc etc. Nene recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly saying Marlo was extremely difficult to work with. Marlo responded on Radar saying she could not be a housewife because she isn’t married. (Um Hello, Kandi?, Kim? That one manly one that got fired?) So there has been a lot of beef between those two since I Dream of Nene ended. And Nene’s insults have been of the “no man will marry you” variety.
Edited: And great sleep I did. Still having trouble staying awake. But here is the latest. There was a HUGE season 6 scene for RHOA yesterday. It was The Bailey Bowl, a charity event sponsored by Cynthia Bailey. It was an event to promote fitness and nutrition and it was run like a field day. Some of the competition was in the YMCA basketball court and some was outside. Nene’s team was TEAM RICH naturally, and well, they didn’t fare so well. It all started out well with friendly competition but that quickly turned ugly. TEAM RICH had all of Nene’s bridesmaids on it except for Marlo. Marlo was on TEAM TWIRL with Kenya. Lots of Jawing happened between Nene and Marlo and Nene felt that calling the police about Marlo was necessary. Oh LAWD. Not to mention Kenya and Marlo palling around together. Continue reading

I have no idea what Nene is doing having so many fools in her wedding. You should try to LIMIT the number of bridesmaids to your very closest friends. You don’t need to put every stray dog that walked through a RHOA scene once or twice in the line-up. You choose civilized people that can get along. With that in mind I say let all three of these girls go now while you still have time. Don’t wait for Marlo to assault someone. Marlo’s Officer Friendly analogy is not funny, Nene.
Look at Porsha on Nene’s spinoff! I wonder whose idea that was?
Was whoever started this trend with using a different nail polish color on your ring finger must have been a middle-schooler, right? I’m looking at you, Porsha. Also, I have no words for Nene’s hair tonight. Y’all know I usually try to see the positive on Nene’s hair, I really like some of her looks. But that blown out, blown back mess. I can’t defend that. No mam. Continue reading
Okay, I’m confused. Nene has posted some pictures from season six filming and I find them all very strange. First of all is that Marlo AND Kenya? I swear they all buy the same hair and it’s hard for me to tell them apart anymore. Also one of them is Malorie so maybe it’s a Cynthia event?
But more importantly where are they and what are they doing there? Why are most of them in long black extremely see through dress, but Kenya? is in white and Porsha is in yellow, and Phaedra seems to be in a tank top and workout leggings. Please explain a scenario where all of these get ups make sense together. I’ll wait. More photos after the cut. Continue reading
