This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we are down to ONE married couple, Kandi and Todd. So this trip to Maui, where the husbands and boyfriends usually tag along is going to be weird. Todd is going. And apparently to give him some company, Peter and Bob are also going.
Yes, for some ungodly reason, Peter is still hanging around Cynthia during filming. Peter has managed the impossible by actually managing to get Bravo to pay the men on the show. At least for RHOA. I think it has to do with being separated from Cynthia and thus the income from Cynthia’s Bravo check doesn’t benefit him any longer. I do not think Todd is getting paid, but you never know. What I do know is that Peter was instrumental in securing his own pay check and that sort of opened things up for other guys to get paid. And Lord knows Peter needs a paycheck. I know that he thinks he is getting his own show called What’s Peter Doing Now? But the only thing funnier than that delusion is all the potential answers to that question. Personally, I think “time” will inevitably be the answer to that. Allegedly. In my opinion. I don’t get why Cynthia is okay with Peter coming along to Maui, but she seems to put up with pretty much anything when it comes to him.
The other interesting person going on the trip is Bob Whitfield. Bob has never met a camera he didn’t love. Sheree needs a storyline other than the perpetually incomplete Chateau Sheree. Bob wants to be on the show, so he is playing the role of “ex husband who wants to reconcile.” This will never happen as Bob has had a girlfriend for many, many years that he lives with. Bob often dates other people, but this woman is always around. Her name is Tisha and she has publicly claimed to be married to Bob in the past. Sheree and Bob are getting along because they have a common goal of wanting to stay on the show. I like Bob. He’s great comic relief, so I’m fine playing along with this storyline. The two of them actually do seem to be getting a long for now. I found out and noted in the comment section that Sheree has suddenly hired two more subcontractors to try to get the house finished in time to film something for the show. I should be hearing more about that situation soon. I don’t think there is anyway possible she can finish that house in the four or five weeks left of filming. There will not be a lot of primary filming shot during that time. It will mostly be fill in scenes to smooth out the editing.
The other interesting thing is who is not coming. That would be Lena. I’ve been arguing with some faceless internet person for a week or two about Lena. Just a few weeks after Lena started filming this season I was told by a very good source that she was actually going to be in this season, after several seasons of trying. As of two weeks ago,, I was again told that the wedding was going to be filmed and it would be one of the last all cast shoots. But when Lena wasn’t invited on the first trip, as it was expected she would be, and is not invited to Hawaii either, things are looking dim for her. Are they really going to cut out most if not all of her scenes like they did Tammy? Something is not making sense here. Did she go all Bridezilla or something? I have no idea. But I am starting to get the feeling something has happened there. There are no friends going on this trip. Just the six ladies and three men. I find that odd in general.
So are you surprised that Peter and Bob will be doing the hula with the ladies in Maui?
