I cannot believe Don’t Be Tardy has been around for seven seasons. I haven’t been able to see any ratings for this season. The sites I check usually only do the top 50 cable shows of the night and it has not show up. That means it is well below 400K. I can’t believe Bravo put it on Sunday nights now. It’s really not a bad show. If you didn’t know who the people were and harbored no negativity, it’s kind of cute. Kim Biermann is nothing like she is on Housewives on DBT.
Andy Cohen being Andy Cohen immediately asks about Kim’s boobs. Are they smaller? Yes they are, she got a reduction. I guess she finally realized that shirts don’t fit well when you have big boobs because you have to buy large sizes. Ditto, dresses. Brielle is behind the bar.
Andy raves about his adorable baby boy for a bit. He lets us know that his diaper game is strong but the whole swaddling thing is a bit perplexing. Then he moves on to RHOA and talks about how Dennis McKinley was a bit concerned about having to share Porsha Williams boobs with the baby. Did I miss that part? This of course brings Andy right back to the topic of Kim’s boobs. He wants to know if Kroy ever tasted her breast milk. Kim said that he liked it. It is supposed to give you extra energy so it was a traditional act before his games. Andy is fascinated by this entire visual that I could do without.
Andy asks Kim what she thinks of Nene and Gregg’s marriage and her inability to be a proper caregiver for her husband. Kim says that Gregg is going through a lot and she should put some of her needs aside and focus on him. But, she also understands that Nene has needs too. She mentions that their wedding vows included “in sickness and in health.” She is supportive of Nene again later in the show.
Andy finally acknowledges Eva Marcille’s existence. Perhaps that is because she is unrecognizable on this show. The hair, the one shoulder top, the double strand of pearls. It’s all wrong. She’s too pretty and too fashion conscious to come out on stage like this. Andy asked about Porsha Williams proposal and she acted like it was the most elaborate thing she had ever seen. It was literally an empty room at a heliport with a People magazine photo and her sister.
Andy asks a bunch of innocuous questions to Kim. At one point he asked, “Do you think there is anything you and Kroy could learn from Kandi and Todd’s marriage?” She replied, “No, I don’t share my husband, sweetie.” The audience groaned. The other questions were pointless.
Kim and Eva both had three dresses for the wedding. Nene told Eva to do that because you can’t expect one dress to get you through the whole evening. Um, sure you can. I’ll give you the going away dress if you are in fact going away somewhere but if it is just for the walk out the door and the car ride home, then no girl. Ninety-five percent of the viewers think three dresses is excessive. The other five percent are all the other housewives current and former who are watching from home.
Brielle’s face is way different from the last time I saw it. She looks a bit less like Kim’s clone. She is single. Her face is… way, way different.
A caller asked Eva what she and Shannon Beador were talking about off in the corner at Andy’s baby shower. She says she is a huge Shannon fan and was so excited to meet her. She wanted to let her know that she has so many people pulling for her and she looks fabulous. Shannon really does look great.
A caller asks Kim why she looks half her age on Instagram but half her age on TV? Andy says that was not the approved question! Lol. They just ignore the caller and move on. But, I mean. It is a valid question.
Kim is asked what she thinks about Porsha marrying “the hot dog king.”Kim doesn’t mention Dennis at all in her answer and gives a blanket sort of I am so happy for her response.
Eva doesn’t think her comments toward Cynthia since she has been on the show are shady she thought they were funny. Perhaps it was British Humor? She says if people think that is shady, she will be an umbrella. This audience is making lots of reaction noises tonight. Is Suzanne from the Wendy Williams Show there as a hype girl? I’m kidding but they had a big reaction to Eva’s comments about not being shady.
A commenter asks what Kim thinks now knowing that Kenya Moore’s baby and husband are both real? She says that motherhood is the best and she wants the best for everyone. Andy asks if Eva wants more kids. She says yes, she want five but she will settle for four if she can get twins on the next go-round. Kim tries to warn her that she doesn’t want twins. Eva is drinking wine because she is apparently hoping to get pregnant and she thinks it is better than getting knocked up on vodka. Because you know … there are all of those throngs of fucked up people walking around because mama got pregnant from a drunken one night stand. Wait. Maybe that is why there are so many dumb people. Hmm.
Kim says she and Nene are fine. It doesn’t seem like the communicate though. She sent some things to Nene when Gregg was first diagnosed. Kroy has become a the manager of of Kim, Brielle and Ariana. So that is his job now. How does he find time for that while doing all his wig brushing duties?
The After Show
When the after show begins Eva and Kim are deep in conversation about why she wasn’t at Andy’s baby shower. The short answer was she wasn’t invited. He says no former housewives were invited. Nene just showed up with Phaedra as a surprise. Then he explained that there were people he would have like to have there, like Caroline Manzo. He also said Jill Zarin wanted to be invited. Also, he sent Kim a very nice text saying he missed having her there.
Eva is asked about Tanya getting crap from the other housewives. At first she thought the caller said Kenya (so do I) and she responds with Kenya? She’s not on the show. Then she says she loves Tanya and feels like the she is not being given a fair shake bye everyone. Speaking of Tanya Sam, I keep meaning to get back with my source that said she was so compelling in Japan and ask if they cut out her compelling parts. Because I must have missed them. I like Tanya and think she is too classy for the franchise, but I didn’t see what all the hype was about while they were in Tokyo with regard to Tanya.
Someone asks Kim about working with Kandi Burruss on an album? This is a real question? Andy talks about how sad the end of her friend with Kandi was since they were very close for a long time. Kim says she really could not understand the way she treated her at the reunion and she doesn’t think things will improve with them. Andy brings up Sheree and Kim says she thinks she and Sheree will die never spilling the secrets they know about each other and she values that. Wait wasn’t it just like 35 minutes ago she was taking jabs at Kandi’s marriage talking about her sharing her husband? Andy asks if Sheree is still dating the felon (Tyrone). Kim says everyone wants to know that shit. That’s why you should have her back on next season.
Eva says that the fight on the bus with Marlo went on way longer than what we say and she got really heated. And with that, this show is mercifully over.
After all the crazy faces I got pulling photos, I like the photos better than the recap! Both of them seemed to be looking at Andy some kinda way through the whole show. I didn’t notice if Andy was drinking tonight or not.
