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.
LOL at Nene calling Porsha a ding-dong. Also, Nene not knowing enough to actually walk outside for phone reception. Good Lord, three scenes about the gay thing? Porsha should have dropped the whole thing when Cynthia did. She had to make chocolate shoes and hire chocolate people to confront Cynthia? Porsha seems a little crazy about gay allegations. Perhaps it is a sensitive subject in her …er…household? Way to alienate Cynthia there, ding-dong.
Before the ladies went to Anguilla (BTW, I was the exclusive tea on the trip! With Anguilla sources!) they went to get a scrub where we learn that Kenya’s skin is bad all over. However, I will say her boobs (unlike her butt) actually look real and Kandi reached over to verify after Kenya extended the invitation to fondle her peaches…er… cantaloupes. I would be much more comfortable with a straight man making this call but they looked real to me. Kenya seems to be coming on to Phaedra and Kandi and Phaedra says “Kenya is straight malt liquor!” Phaedra sure knows a lot of interesting metaphors for being a lesbian. Um, for whatever that is worth.
Did Kandi just out Todd for sending her dic pics? I refuse to believe that about Todd. I am one of the few that likes Todd and doesn’t think he has any nefarious intentions with Kandi. Why Kandi gotta out Todd like that? Grrrrrl!
I refuse to participate in Phaedra’s fake pet funeral storyline. No, just no. Ditto Kenya tongue kissing her dog with the pooping problem.
Apollo wanted to model for the Bailey Agency. Of course he did. 20% is high at least from back in the day when I may or may not have done a bit of modeling. I guess everything gets more expensive. I was checking prices on NYC hotel rooms recently and even the biggest flea bag (literally, and bed bug bag truth be told, I’ve stayed there twice now) is $200 a night. But still, it’s a PERCENTAGE. Why would a percentage double? Apollo is pretty photogenic. Cynthia had a modeling event with TYSON BECKFORD and it landed on the cutting room floor? WTMFF? And why were both Cynthia and Apollo wearing sunglasses inside? Tyson encourages Apollo to pursue and entertainment career. I actually think Apollo has a shot at a career. Kenya rolls her eyes and pops her fan as Phaedra compliments Cynthia for using contracts and lawyers in their transactions. I cannot for the life of me understand how Kandi does not grab that fan and shove it down Kenya’s throat. Kandi is street and it must take all she has not to do it.
Next topic, how happy are you guys that Kim is gone (for now?) from the group? Cynthia says she is happy because Kim checked out way before she actually left and if you don’t want to be here, you need to go. Scene with Kandi and Kim where Kandi talks about financial responsibility. Kim has none and Kandi does. Oh, Kim, you should really listen to Kandi, here. Kroy has a fantastical invention that will make them rich so Kim thinks she has nothing to worry about. There is this phrase about chickens and hatching that comes to mind.
I was impressed with Bravo for not airing Brielle’s bullying in school storyline. Yet, they just could not help themselves. I think airing this is wrong on so many levels. Both Kim and Kroy went to the school and nothing was satisfactorily resolved. This is but a blip of a serious issue Brielle went through. Of course, Kim has to make this all about her. Sigh. But, this was actually a serious issue with Brielle. Brielle seems a bit to be fake crying for the cameras but that is just because it is a “scene” in real life, it was a real deal. Remember high school? Brielle actually IS in high school. They are jealous of her. But these staged scenes put the kids in a bad light and Kroy should never have agreed to this fake ass scene about a real problem.
LOL, Andy goes down the line to ask what everyone is doing. When it gets to Kenya, he says, “Twirler?” LOL, Lord I love that Andy Cohen in spite of my many attempts to break up with him. (If you haven’t read this, you should.) Kenya says she may
copy Cynthia do a pageant of her own. The bloopers at the end were the best. THAT is the sort of secrets we want. A whole show of the housewives doing retakes and being divas during their talking heads would be priceless. And that’s FINALLY a wrap.
