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

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 already recapped the first ten minutes of this episode here. The predominant theme was, “who hasn’t fucked Chuck?” Oh and Mallory is back to stir up trouble for Peter and Cynthia as if they need more shit in their marriage. I’m taping seven hours worth of shows tonight. I am hoping to get through this recap, and the new Blood, Sweat & Heels, which sadly looks promising and then zoning out with JUAN CARLOS. I loves me some Juan Carlos. Don’t judge.
Kenya’s giant gold hoops look real from where I am sitting.
Okay, on with the new stuff. Porsha is shopping for dog crap she doesn’t need. Why do people feel the need to dress their dogs like they are actual children? Porsha is moving out from her mother’s house. Porsha gets her mama to pay the $43 for dog clothes, and for some reason places a couple folded benjamins on the counter as if to say, “See? I can afford this forty-three dollar dog dress.” Continue reading

I don’t normally do these, but since I am STILL under the weather, I thought I would this week so on the off chance I don’t feel up to blogging tonight, we will still have a place to chat. I still plan to try my best to get tons of blogging done tonight though. It Sunday night and everyone goes back to work tomorrow and you are going to need stuff to read rather than do whatever they pay you to do.
We start with Miss Lawrence and Kenya out to lunch. Well, they are always out to lunch, but this time I mean literally. They are in a restaurant having lunch. They appear to be the only customers. Kenya just wants something light, so she orders a shrimp po’boy. Because a huge crusty bread roll stuffed with fired shrimp and lots of mayo based dressing is “something light” on her planet. Kenya does not know how to pronounce Savannah. Kenya is gossiping about all the people in their circle who have fucked Chuck Smith. Miss Lawrence says he knows Chuck Smith, which prompted Kenya to ask, “Have you fucked Chuck?” Miss Lawrence says not that one. Kenya is still irked by Phaedra. Continue reading
Kenya Moore is at it again. Apparently, she hit her speed dial button for Life & Style Magazine, and offered them a story to get a bit of cash in her pocketbook. The story is.. are you sitting down? Kenya wants to have a baby with Miss Lawrence. Oh dear Lord. I can’t believe they actually paid her for this story. No wait. Yes I can.
We all know, and Kenya has even sort of admitted to on camera, that Kenya’s old eggs are dried up and shriveled away. She is also flat broke. Like Sheree Whitfied broke almost. But suddenly she is going to get in vitro and to hear her tell it will be with
demon child in six months.
Click through for the gory details, if you dare. Continue reading
Sorry for the delay, TAR running behind got me behind and I decided to just wait and recap RHOA today.
Oh Phaedra and Appollo are not speaking. Phaedra is headed to Alabama to study and take her funeral director test. With the baby. Is Apollo in school somewhere? He always seems to have a backpack with him. What’s up with that?
Cynthia is working at her agency and Apollo walks in to see Peter for advice. This fake sitch with Kenya is played out. TMZ did a story just this week just to explain that nothing happened between Kenya and Apollo. Who does that? It was a non-story story. Fake or not, Peter seems surprisingly good with the marital advice 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 have no idea why Kandi is not in this picture…
Time for some Real Housewives of Atlanta. Everyone has a new tag line this season.
Nene: I live to be the star, and I am definitely in charge!
Kandi: Music may be my passion but family is forever.
Cynthia: My business is beauty, and I’m the boss.
Porsha: I am still standing and I’m making my own rules!
Phaedra: A true southern belle knows her own worth and I am priceless.
Kenya: People think they have me figured out, but I’m always the wild card.
And those six ladies are the only ones holding a peach! So we can finally squash all the rumors about getting a new housewife! I do think we may have a new friend or two, including Marlo.
Don’t keep reading if you want the first episode to be a surprise next Sunday. You can bookmark this post and come back later. Continue reading

Andy Cohen is trying his hand at primetime tonight with a one-on-one interview with Nene Leakes under the umbrella of his Watch What Happens Live show. This will get great ratings and likely result in more Andy during primetime. Which could be a good thing if he has really good guests and let’s them talk about production.
One of the first things out of Nene’s mouth is, “Is this going to be girl talk?” Let me just stop here to say that there are all types of gay men. Almost every type is wonderful. Almost. But all of those types can be divided into two broad categories. Let’s call the first type the “Miss Lawrence” type. Lawrence refers to himself as Miss Lawrence and dabbles in cross-dressing, at least when it comes to footwear. The other type is the Anderson Cooper type, more masculine than feminine, educated, refined, successful. Andy is in the latter category. He wishes he was Anderson Cooper. He wants to be respected even when he is playing pin the boobies on the housewives with D list celebrities. You don’t refer to him as a girl. He was visibly offended by her remark (although she surely had no intention to do so) and it took him a minute to recover and resume the ass kissing opening dialogue he had prepared. Continue reading

The previews for Rea Housewives of Atlanta: Secrets Revealed! are such to make us think this is going to be good. I am of little faith. I was not impressed by the Beverly Hills version. Let’s watch what happens…
Cynthia says that she was so thankfully that a lot of Nene’s scenes were in LA so that the fans would stop attributing her every action to Nene. I get that. It’s true that this season we sort of judged Cynthia based on her own motives and I think overall she came off well. Cynthia is so drop dead stunning, I’d hate to lose her from the show. Cynthia and Kenya went to “play golf.” Really? Neither of these women strike me as the golfing type. But okaaaay. Kenya is accusing SOMEONE ELSE of being gay now? For Kenya to be such dear friends with Lawrence, you would think that the whole gay thing would be more understood by here. To be fair, Atlanta has gay rumors about almost everyone from football players to musicians. But, still shouldn’t Kenya have some sort of functioning gaydar? I could see Porsha not having any gaydar, but Kenya has to know better, right? I can’t see Porsha saying that or Cynthia taking it seriously. Continue reading

Well boys and squirrels, it looks like we will not have Kenya Moore to kick around anymore. Kenya has bid us all a fond adieu on the Bravo blog! I don’t think anyone is surprised she was not asked back. What is a surprise though is that she was either on all her meds or got a lot of help writing her “long good-bye” as she bids us farewell with…. dare I say class? I don’t usually include an ENTIRE blog from the housewives but since this one is so well-written and full of some interesting tea, I am going to post Kenya’s Long Goodbye in its entirety with limited snarky comments. Click through to read. Continue reading
