I’m sorry my recaps are so late, but I’ve just been very very busy. I’m going to try to catch up with the comments this weekend. I’ve also been having trouble finding RHOA online lately. My youtube friend Amy seems to be the only one who has it, but she didn’t record the entire thing so I’m just recapping what I saw.
The recording I saw starts on the bus tour with Kandi bitching to the camera about the fact that Kim orders Sweetie around all the time. I think she’s just jealous because Sweetie gets paid to put up with Kim while everyone else has to do it for free.
Kim gets a call from her younger daughter who is crying because she misses her mommy. I don’t know why, but I just can’t picture Kim’s kids caring whether she’s around or not. Maybe whoever is watching them is making them follow rules, or be respectful and that’s why they want her to come home.
Why does Kim wear her wig while it’s getting styled? It would be a lot easier to take it off, give it to the guy, and put it back on when it’s finished. Btw, hubby still refuses to believe that Kim isn’t a drag queen. He still thinks there is a woman out there somewhere who birthed her daughters.
This outfit is not doing Kim’s ass any favors:
There was some argument over whether or not black people walk outside with bare feet and whether or not Sweetie spends too much time around white people a.k.a Kim.
I could be wrong, but I really think the whole bare feet outside thing is more of a city/suburb thing than a black/white thing. But what do I know.
Back in Atlanta Cynthia tells Malory and Nene that Peter closed his restaurant and that he isn’t honest with her about his finances. Nene states the obvious and tells Cynthia that she probably, maybe, possibly shouldn’t be going into a marriage with someone who she is having trust and financial issues with. Malory really wants her to postpone the wedding, but Cynthia is determined to go through with it… But not because she wants to be Peter’s wife, because she wants to wear a pretty dress and have the party that she already booked at her dream venue. It’s a good thing Cynthia’s pretty, because I don’t see that brain of hers getting her very far in life. Who else can totally see Cynthia waking up 6 months from now only to find that Peter is gone and her bank accounts are empty? He just strikes me as the type of guy who could inspire a Lifetime Original Movie.
The rest of the show is pure drama. But it wasn’t fun “omg I can’t believe she said that” drama. It wasn’t Scary Island or New York “whats gonna happen next” drama. It was loud, annoying, name calling, headache inducing, please shut the hell up already drama.
Nene shows up on the tour seemingly for no other reason than to piss off Kim. The bus already appeared to be a stressful situation and Nene is just adding to the tension. She is clearly still mad that Kim decided to do Tardy for the Party without her. She doesn’t think it’s fair that Kim has a hit song when Nene is clearly the better singer. I’m sure the fact that she’s having money issues is only adding to her anger. Also on the list of things Nene’s mad about:
– The way Kim talks to Sweetie
– Kim sleeping with married men
– Kim practising before going on stage
– Kim calling her performances “work”
– And the fact that Sweetie and Don Juan are going to be in Miami with them
Then Kandi starts getting pissed because this was supposed to be her tour and a 3 episode long infomercial for her new album, but all the attention is on Kim and Nene and their drama.
Kim is just trying to have some fun and play pop star and is sick of everyone trying to rain on her little delusional parade.
Once Nene gets going she just can’t be stopped. And Kim doesn’t make things much better by constantly replying to all of Nene’s little jabs. Then the argument gets really hilarious when Nene (who is pretending to be a journalist) starts arguing with Kim (who is pretending to be a pop star) over who’s fake career is more legitimate. Kim calls Nene an intern, and Nene says that Kim thinks she’s Lady Gaga. They’re both getting so worked up defending their fantasy jobs that neither of them stops to see the absurdity of their argument.
I think they should both just stick to their day jobs of fighting and yelling at each other for our entertainment. Singing and doing interviews is nice and all, but if you want to be successful in life – stick with what you’re good at. That’s what I always say.
Things get even more ridiculous when Nene calls Kim a dumb blonde. In retaliation Kim calls Nene a dumb bitch and Nene suddenly gets sooo offended. She acted as though she had been sitting there minding her own business and Kim just called her a name for no reason. I think we see some evidence of that big head Greg was talking about when Nene yells “Who do you think you’re talking to like that?” Don’t you just love it when the Housewives can dish it but can’t take it? I do.
But then things turn from ridiculous to slightly scary as Nene gets up and starts screaming in Kim’s face. It looked for a moment like she might bite her or something. Kandi and Don Juan come between them, but I wish they would have waited a little bit longer to break them up because in another 5 seconds that wig was coming off! You know that was Nene’s next move!
Kim says she’s scared and wants to get off the bus. The bus driver tells her that they’re in the Everglades and there are alligators outside. Kim weighs her options for a moment, and then decides to take her chances on the bus with Nene.
In her interview Nene says “I just want to get off the bus, I am so disgusted” and Amy, the woman video taping the show says “Yeah, I’m disgusted by you. Go back home to your husband.” Lol. She doesn’t like Nene. She also clapped when Kim called her a dumb bitch, and her husband said something in Russian that I couldn’t understand, but I bet it was funny.
The show ends there and next week we get to see more of Nene’s out of control behavior, Cynthia cries because she’s marrying a loser, and Fakedra is actually starting to look normal next to these women.
