Technically it is too early in the week to be paying attention to housewives blogs but I’m getting emails about Nene’s this week and everyone seems a bit worked up about the ghostwriter’s dramatics this week. Couple that with the fact that I have fallen into a downward spiral of staying up too late drinking and then napping for too long during the day and I am all about taking the blogger’s path of least resistance this week. So let me try to stay awake long enough to get out my purple pen.
Nene’s ghostwriter begins….
Don’t you just love the dramatics of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta? I loved how Dr. Jeff was saying “Nene, you’re going to that place again.” “Nene, you’re getting angry,” as I calmly walked to my car.
You seem very confused about what it means to calmly walk away. Screaming over people as the are calmly talking to you in a therapy session and then jumping up to grab up enough luggage to reasonably request a bell hop to assist you while storming out of the room and then going behind the valet stand demanding “a black Range Rover” all the while suggesting that the therapist license needs to be revoked for daring to allow others to speak in group therapy is not calmly walking to your car.

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.
Oh God, I had somehow blocked out the last episode of this show and was sitting here wondering where we were going tonight. I completely forgot the TV shrink chasing Nene into the parking lot. I’m not sure who looks dumber, the shrink or Nene sashsaying away in her Pep Boys uniform. I think she probably just had to work a late shift doing some oil changes and stuff in her coveralls.
Thank you Kandi! That is just what I was saying. Why is this fool chasing after Nene? Let her go and the other girls can actually hash some issues out. By the way I love what Kandi is wearing for a change. This is something I would wear.
Nene thinks that the shrink should lose his license. This is so hysterical. Her reasoning is that a good counselor would not allow everyone to speak their truth about how Nene treats people. Nene sees this as “Gang Up on Nene Day!” Clearly she doesn’t understand that counseling is about understanding YOUR behavior in interpersonal relationships and working on yourself. In group or couples counseling it is about listening to how others perceive you. Nene get into her black Range Rover and rolls off.
Back in the session, Kenya points out that Nene does not have the tools to handle when more than one person comes at her, yet the rest of them have dealt with similar situations multiple times. Especially when they first come on the show.
Somehow this therapy session becomes all about Porsha and I can’t even deal with it. Continue reading

Well, for now anyway.
Mrs Linnethia Leakes has purchased a home at long last. Sadly, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, Gregg Leakes name is not on the title. The new property is located in Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth. The purchase price was $2,075,000 and was purchased on February 27th. I presume this was “The Big Contract!” Nene keeps talking about having to sign. FYI, the “Zestimate” is $1,592,910.
The property that she bought is a new home that was just finished last year. The lot was originally $268,000 back in 2003 and was eventually unloaded in December of 2012 for $117,000. All gated communities in the Atlanta area took a HUGE hit in 2008-09 perhaps the largest hit in the country. Property in Atlanta has been steadily recovering but has still not reached 2008 value levels in many areas.
The Mediterranean two-story has a studio with a separate kitchen for Brentt or guests. The back of the house has tons of windows and glass door with views of the pool and covered porch area. The 6 bedroom 6.5 bath is 9,511 square feet and sits on a one acre lot. The kitchen is decked out with marble counter tops and Viking appliances as well as 10 foot kitchen cabinets ( um how does that work?). The main level has travertine flooring.
It’s not 100% clear if the house is completely finished at this time or when it will be available to move in. Click through for interior photos. Continue reading
Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.
We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”
Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight. Interesting. Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.
Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up. Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine. Continue reading
This ghostwriter of Nene’s has a super easy gig going. Short blogs only a couple paragraphs a week. The theme is always the same: I’m Gone With The Wind Fabulous and Everyone Else is “Thirsty.” It’s all very repetitive.
Well hello there honey, it’s me again! Just stopping by to spill a little tea on these petty Bettys. There are just a couple of things I still don’t understand, so I’ll ask you and maybe you can help me!
There is no help for you. None.
What is the problem with me being there for Phaedra during a rough time in her life?
Besides the fact that you hate Phaedra and Phaedra hates you? Let’s try to think of reasons that two people who hate each other would suddenly become fast friends when one of their spouses goes to prison? Whatever might bring two unlikely people together when the Feds start closing in…. hmmmmmm…. Continue reading
It’s time for Real Housewives of Atlanta and frankly, I’m not sure what the storyline we are supposed to be looking forward to is. More Kandi and Todd marital disharmony? More Mr. Chocolate innuendo? I’m bored and it hasn’t even started yet. Meanwhile, I’m on injured reserve from three hours of really hard digging in the yard. So bear with me as usual with the homophones and typos. I’m about to fall over.
It’s time for Cynthia to download Peter on what went down at the Mr. Chocolate dinner last week. Meanwhile Porsha and Phaedra are at The Palm loading up on free food to go. I think the scene with Porsha and Phaedra was another “pick-up” as most of Phaedra’s scenes are this season. It was filmed in mid to late November. It is hysterical they are sitting there in some kind of boob revealing formal wear in an empty restaurant in an off hour when most people will show up in business casual. Did Phaedra did say about Kenya, ” She can’t help but bark?” I love how both whores (allegedly) are going in on Kenya who was not even the messenger in this instance. Cynthia pointed out Phaedra’s whorish ways and Claudia outed Porsha participating in the world’s oldest profession, yet both of them have hard on for Kenya. Interesting. Phaedra refers to Cynthia and Kenya as “ace boon coons” which apparently Bravo has recently decided can’t be said on the air without bleeping. Oh and they actually aired Porsha and Phaedra ordering two entrees each. I’m told it didn’t stop their these two loaded up their purses like Mama June at a Golden Corral. Porsha and Phaedra talk about Ebola and Africans. Porsha starts trash talking Kandi to try to make ground with Phaedra. Continue reading

Nene’s blog is below. She seems to have dictated it to someone who passed fourth grade grammar. In third person.
It always amazes me how these ladies like to point fingers. It’s always somebody else’s fault rather than admitting, “Yeah I was wrong,” or, “Maybe I shouldn’t have said that at that time,” or, “Maybe I wasn’t there for her because I had my own problems going on.” It’s always easy to point the finger at your girl NeNe and hope that no one will see their true colors!

I started this post writing about what is wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta and how it has jumped the shark. I thought about how it could be fixed. How to save the franchise. I thought about how to make it more interesting, ways to make it better. But, very quickly in, I was reminded that we shouldn’t be watching this crap at all. Seriously. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? But first, here is what I thought we should do back when I was still drinking the Kool-Aid. At the end I will link you back to my thoughts three years ago, before the crazy came.
There are too many women on this show. I have said this forever, when there are more than five housewives, it’s hard to get into any of their storylines. Hell, we don’t even notice anymore when Nene is not on at all.
There is was too much recapping of the previous episode. We get it the wives told their husband about the previous week’s forced dinner where someone was a cunt. The wives who weren’t in some scenes the previous week were filled in on what happened. We don’t need the first 25% of the show to be a recap. That’s what I am for. 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
Hey, did you notice no Nene on tonight’s RHOA? It was awesome. Sadly there was too much Porsha. Anyway. I’m trying to get this up quickly but I’m already 20 minutes behind somehow. So I’m going to do this as fast as I can with little regard for typos.
First, Nene’s look is bad but it looks great compared to Tracee’s odd fashion choice that is somehow a mixture of a jump suit and hot pants in the dead of winter in NYC. I love Tracee but this is a fashion fail. Why is Andy’s tie always so crooked? Nene’s hair is hideous again. But at least it sort of looks like hair. The bartender is a Diana Ross drag queen.
Andy asked Nene what she knows about Mr. Chocolate. She says she likes the name but she has no idea if Phaedra is having an affair or not. She moves on to make it all about herself. She says she has been through a “public breakup” before and it’s really hard. Of course hers was all bullshit just to get a Wedding By Bravo. But is was still tough faking it. Or something. Nene says that Phaedra does have a girlfriend named White Chocolate. So is she trying to say she calls her girlfriend Daddy and asks her to spank her? WTF are the talking about? And Nene’s face looks weird. I can’t figure out what is different. Is it just the wider hair? Nene says that White Chocolate used to be a stripper and she is best friends with Phaedra and she’s married now and just threw her a baby shower. None of this makes any sense. Why is she telling us this? Andy says it is easy to fake texts from someone. Is it?
Andy claims to love Nene’s hair. She walked in a benefit for Naomi Campbell in NYC and apparently walked out with the wig. That explains the improvement. #BitchStoleMyHair !
Andy acts like he believes the scene is real. I suppose he has to pretend. They play a clip from next week when Cynthia and Kenya confront Phaedra about Mr. Chocolate. Porsha is right there sticking up for Phaedra. Because, Porsha. Continue reading
