I’ve been so busy during this preseason time of RHOA I completely forgot to take the arduous journey to pick up a screener. In fact I haven’t done that in a couple of years now. But I wish I had this year because I can’t believe these taglines. Like seriously, I am not sure I believe they could be this bad/offensive. But I trust Buzzfeed who was the first to unveil them to the masses this year. But a part of me still feels like we are being punked.
Click through the jump to see the taglines and for my purple pen.
Cynthia “Seasons may change but Cynthia Bailey never goes out of style.”
Of the lot, this is the best one, even though Cynthia speaks of herself in the third person. SMH
Kenya “Don’t come for me unless I twirl for you”
Look, y’all know I love Kenya NOW, but in season one, I could not STAND her. I desperately wanted her to be a one season wonder. And the whole Twirling nonsense reminds me of season one Kenya. The twirling crap is played out. She deserves a much better tagline.
Kim “Faith, family and career, those are the facts of my life”
On second thought, this may be the best one. But it’s kind of like winning the Special Olympics. Please hold your outcries about how your kid is special and came in fourth in the Olympics and it’s a wonderful thing. I don’t care. Truly.
Kandi “I’m a hit maker, and this year I will reveal the best one.”
Well, she seems to be admitting that her last kid isn’t the best. I’m not sure she realizes that though. And the kid may not even get here until January, so? #Fail
Porsha “I’m about to give you pure life, so stay outta my way.”
Fittingly ratchet. I hope she throws up some sort of gang sign when she says it.
Phaedra “Only God can judge me, and he seems quite impressed.”
In a way it is kind of great that Phaedra starts right off with some blasphemy.
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Matthew 6 1-7
That was Jesus there in the red.
Am I wrong? Or are these the worst taglines ever?
