As we saw on last weeks show the ladies all met up at Einstien’s for dinner. I’ve discussed many times that the housewives never actually eat at dinner. Production seems overly concerned about editing a meal because they cut footage together and don’t want to have issues with continuity based on the plates being full, then empty, then half full again. The Atlanta production crew is the most anal about this. We have seen RHONJ and RHOBH actually eat at dinner, but RHOA rarely if ever do. This is also the reason for the red solo cups I like to freak out about. They use them because the cover the amount of wine in the glass so that it doesn’t show more wine, then less, then more, etc.
As an added bonus, it make the RHOA cranky because they are starving in a restaurant full of food they can’t eat. You will see this season that Phaedra and Porsha filmed dinner at The Palm in Atlanta. They ordered a ton of food and took it all to go to eat in peace without having to worry about eating on camera.
Queerty found an Facebook entry from Corey Thompson, the poor guy who was stuck with the task of being their server. He is furious that he was made to look incompetent at his job, when production would not allow him to serve the ladies.
Here is how he describes the evening…
I was the server in this episode the ladies were very polite it was the producers they would not allow me to bring anything out to the table until they stopped filming I sat back by the bar holding cocktails and water that had to be remade 6 times because I wasnt allowed to bring them, who comes to a restaurant and orders crackers? By the time the ladies tried to order food the restaurant was closed if you watch closely when they first arrived the place was packed and by time the “stale” crackers arrived we were closed. This was a horrible experience for me. Its embarrassing to see how they made me look when it was out of my hands. The bravo producers and staff were horrible and had no idea what they were doing, it was unorganized and very classless. We at Einstein’s did what we could on such short notice. Next These Beautiful Ladies should let people ahead time instead of just popping up & Phadrea Thank You for the 4 dollar tip.
I’m not sure if that is dig at Phadrea for being a lousy tipper, or a compliment that she was the only person who left anything despite not getting to eat and being miserable.
Thank Micheal for sending me the link! xoxo
