Banjo and I delayed our walk due to rain and me actually being productive in the house. I had completely forgotten about this show so I am off to a late start. I have a feeling this will not take long. Is this the second or third and final of this crap? I long for the days when we could just watch reality shows like idiots and believe most of what we see was real. Those days are long gone. And yet we still watch this crap. Despite Bravo insisting on calling this “Real Housewives of Atlanta” my DVR did not bother to record it, fortunately, or unfortunately, I noticed in time.
We start with Kandi defending the old lady gang to Todd. Todd wants to sit them down to hash things out. Kandi wants to ignore the situation.
Don Juan and Carmon continue to treat Matthew like ass. Matthew is actually working while Don Juan and Carmon drink and insult him repeatedly. I’m good with that though because now I don’t have to feel bad for Carmon when Mama Joyce comes for her later. She has built her own karma.
The next morning Mama Joyce helps Kandi make breakfast. There is an issue that there was not enough bacon. The dumbasses sent the dude who wanted “some kind of organic pumpkin cereal” for breakfast instead of doing the grocery shopping. I get this is all fake, but why would a family and two “friends/assistants” agree to go on a show to look like assholes. What would be wrong with showing what really happened?
Mama Joyce must have gotten to decided the fake roles. She is one of the better behaved on this show. There are two groups going skinning. The Old Lady Gang is going shopping with Matthew. The ski group is signing insurance releases to go skiing. I haven’t been in ages but I’ve never done that before. Is this a thing now? Kandi has never skied and is not overly excited about doing it.
So far the ladies seem to get along fine with Matthew. They are checking out cowboy hats and boots. Mama Joyce bought two pairs of PJs for her two granddaughters. Look at her being kind to Todd’s daughter, Laela! Meanwhile, the eight skiers take a beginners lesson. Todd’s brother is the first to bust his ass just trying to get pulled up the hill.
The three guys go out for beers and Todd’s brother and uncle talk to him about Weenie being such a… meanie. They encourage him to make sure his voice is heard on matters concerning his family. Meanwhile, MJ is starting to come for Carmon as the guys return to the cabin. They are preparing to play a game. The two girls and a couple of the aunts are already in bed for the night. The crowd plays charade. Matthew announces that it is time to go to bed.
Todd wants to address the Old Ladies first. Weenie starts to go off on Todd. Todd keeps cool. Mama Joyce tries to jump in. Eventually every says their piece and Weenie calms the fuck down.
The next day they ride snowmobiles to the lunch site. Kandi makes them all mix together and not sit next to the usual people. Don Juan and Carmon are being asses to Matthew. Riley sticks up for Matthew and says she doesn’t want to hear all the rude comments. The Old Lady Gang backs up Riley and says that Carmon is not doing anything and Matthew is doing all the work.
Later, Don Juan and Carmon bitch about Mama Joyce thinking that they should be actually doing their job. Kandi shows up at their cabin and they are all pissy. Kandi gets real with Carmon and tells her she is not the best assistant she has ever had. She says Matthew thinks ahead without being told what to do. Kandi starts screaming at Don Juan because he doesn’t want to admit Carmon sucks. Kandi says that Carmon gets special treatment from other people at work because she is Kandi’s friend. Basically, if they were not friends, Carmon would be fired.
Next Week: It’s show down between Mama Joyce and Carmon. My money is on Mama Joyce.
