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

It is the finale of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and that means there is only a month left before the season ends! We begin with Kenya planning her “gala” aka costume party that will serve as the final bash of the season. Kenya wants to have some scenes from classic movies with famous black actresses acted out at the party. So she thinks really hard about appropriate suggestions. Should she go with Dorothy Dandridge and Pearl Bailey in Carmen Jones? How about Butterfly McQueen as Prissy in her favorite movie of all time, Gone With the Wind? Nope, that is not what Kenya’s brain comes up with. She wants Eddie Murphy in Coming to America. Specifically the royal wedding scene “with all of the dancers with the feathers on their heads.” I am not kidding. She also calls it her “coming out party.” If she does indeed decide to come out, that might explain lots of things. You know, sometimes people accuse others of things they themselves are guilty of.
Meanwhile Phaedra is putting her donkey booty video behind her, (her bad pun, not mine) and moving on to the production of her new pink stun gun she calls, “Phaedra Sparks.” Again. Not kidding. Kandi zaps the stun gun on one of the self-defense guys accidentally. Sort of. Phaedra wants to try hers out on Kenya. Good plan, Phaedra, good plan. I did not recap the mandatory sex talk for Phaedra and Kandi scenes. Continue reading

Tonight on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, we are back at Kandi’s housewarming party at the point where Kenya stomps off screaming about Walter stalking her. I don’t understand why we could not have just wrapped up this little hissyfit last week.
Nene and Gregg are in LA. Nene has arrived. She has her happiness back. Gregg’s teefs are so white they are purple. Nene’s aren’t much better. I missed what they were talking about because I got distracted wondering if Gregg had been eating blueberries. Was it important? Later Gregg is out at dinner with Nene. Nene rudely checks her phone during dinner. More Gregg sucking up to Nene. Gregg proposes. Gregg says Nene is the wind beneath his wings. Nene says yes.
Bravo is making Cynthia shoot scenes with Kenya again. I wonder if she got a bonus for that? Miss Lawrence was in the scene and the topic was Kandi’s housewarming party. Miss Lawrence made it clear that he was not invited. That Lawrence is blowing through housewives in a hurry. First he made all of Sheree’s hair fall out and now Kandi is mad at him over some Closet Freak argument or something. He still got his own show though because Andy Cohen is fascinated with men in pumps. Cynthia tells Kenya that she needs to learn how to handle herself in public situations. Cynthia should have said to Kenya, “Go out and find someone who will sleep with you! There has to be someone and it might help your disposition.” Continue reading

Here we go on RHOA. Apologies in advance for the weakness of what is to come. It’s been a long day at Chez Tamara. I’d like to fast forward through this Donkey Bootie V. Stallion Bootie shit. Phaedra thinks she is family friendly. Then she does her nasty nonsense. Whore or (by definition, white southern belle?) I just can’t. Wake me up when this segment is over.
Cynthia decides that modeling stuff is not going well for her… so she is going to do pageants. She is charging girls to be in the pageant and then charging them for her “workshop”. It’s a money-making venture. Sad but true. You no longer have to be a model, you just have to pay to be in a pageant. It’s smart business but trashy.
Porsha and Kenya have a white party of two. It’s staged and ridiculous. Not tonight. I’m bored. I also really should have eaten today. Continue reading

Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore at Nene’s Christmas Party 2012
Nene threw a Christmas party in Atlanta last night and Kenya Moore stuck around town to attend before flying off to wherever she came from today. I have been questioning whether or not these two knew each other before filming since before Kenya showed her badly complected face on our TVs. I’ve always been told that Nene brought Kenya to Bravo despite Nene swearing she didn’t know her. I think that was also on the same Wendy Williams interview when she said she had not filmed with Kenya (though we all knew she had). First Kenya spent Thanksgiving with the Leakes and now she appears to be the only housewife in town without other plans for Christmas. Other known reality types in attendance were Miss Lawrence, Jennifer Williams of Basketball Wives and Carlos King, former producer for RHOA who jumped ship this season to work on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond was also in attendance. Click through for more photos. Continue reading
Better late than never on this recap. Sorry. I had to watch The Amazing Race. Um wait, hold up. Gregg is going to open an L.A. office? In what universe? Does he even have a job because he has been in Nene’s hip pocket for the past year everywhere she goes, he’s right there with her. I’m supposed to believe this man has a job? I love Gregg but that right there is just some straight up bullshit. They sure do have some fancy pedicure chairs up in this place. I love Gregg. Lawrence looks healthier in this episode but that belt? Gurrrrl! Just no.
Speaking of house husbands and their jobs. Apollo apparently doesn’t repo cars anymore. He’s going to be a personal trainer and nutrition specialist. Honey, I may get my fat ass up off this couch and go to the gym myself. Unlike the RHOA though, I want a smaller butt. What the hell is he eating and where did it come from? You know nothing has been cooked in that kitchen. He’s microwaving food from somewhere. Continue reading

Okay, what happened between the show and the aftershow that we didn’t see? Andy seems to have calmed down A LOT and Miss Lawrence seems a bit more sober? See Sheree and Andy tear up over a Speak and Spell below.
