The Real Housewives of Atlanta – Reunion Part 1

Time for The Real Housewives of Atlanta snoozefest Reunion. They held the it at an Aquarium which was random, and distracting. I kept looking at the dolphin (shark?) in the background that was pressed up against the glass looking like it was trying to escape.

Kandi looked great. This new hair is such a huge improvement. She looked like a different person. Kim’s wig was a frizzy mess and looked like it came off the rack at the Halloween store. Sheree looked like she had a lion’s mane on her head. Everyone else looked nice. I especially loved Phaedra’s dress and earrings.

They talked a bit about fake boobs and donkey butts. After 3 seasons viewers still want to see Kim’s drivers license because no one with eyes believes she’s a day under 40. Andy asks Kim why everyone thinks she’s older than she really is. She says wearing too much makeup makes her look older. Andy asks why she continues to cake it on then. Kim asks “Does it look caked?!” and Andy immediately backs down from the question. Pussy. Yes Kim! It’s looks piled on, caked on, spackled on… And that mountain of cheap synthetic dollar store hair piled on top of your head isn’t helping either. And while we’re at it, you don’t look good in black.
There were no wig questions this time. But I still want a straight answer as to why the hell she wears the damn thing in the first place (and if she ever washes it – doesn’t look like it). And also why, with all the money she spends, she doesn’t invest in an expensive quality wig, because they do exist.

They replay a scene from season 2 that I had totally forgotten about where Kim’s psychic tells her that she is going to get involved in a new relationship and have a son within a year. Well, it looks like a Real Housewife actually managed to find psychic who knows what the hell she’s talking about. We still have to wait and see if she was right about the sex of the baby, but that was a pretty good prediction so far. Eat your heart out Allison DuBois.

Cynthia doesn’t regret getting married yet. Well… she doesn’t admit to regretting it. She defends her decision to get married and made the conversation mostly about their money issues while ignoring the fact that Peter really didn’t appear to have much respect for her. Cynthia still looked stressed and unhappy while talking about her wedding and marriage. At least she has a pre nup. I’d be willing to bet the marriage is already over but they’re keeping it a secret because she doesn’t want to admit that everyone was right and she made the wrong decision.

Nene swore that she doesn’t have a crush on Peter while the other women rolled their eyes at her. Cynthia said that Peter and Nene don’t even get along and Nene looked hurt by that statement. Nene is just waiting for the right moment to pounce and Cynthia knows it.

Phaedra explained canned food-gate and says that her husband jokes about growing up on canned food and packaged meat. She says that her comment was definitely not racist because racism implies hatred. I don’t think Phaedra hates white people. I think she hates her mother in law and that comment was a personal dig.

Nene said on twitter that one of her cast mates is a transsexual. Andy asked her who she was talking about. She wouldn’t say who, but also didn’t take back her words, implying that someone on the cast is in fact a transsexual. I assume she was talking about Kim. But Kim’s pregnant so that ends that argument.

We didn’t hear from Sheree at all except to talk about whether or not her arms are too masculine. She said that she doesn’t work out her upper body and that her arms are all natural. So maybe she’s the transsexual Nene was referring to in her tweet?

Phaedra brought pictures of herself on a horse to prove that she has in fact ridden a horse before. Ok. That proves that she competed in a horse show when she was younger. I see low jumps, an ill fitting jacket, and a white ribbon… A horseback rider, maybe. But a “true equestrian”? I don’t think so.

Phaedra still doesn’t understand why this isn’t a classy look. But they’re roses! How could a rose not be classy? She looked legitimately hurt that the other women were laughing at her.

Nene and Phaedra argue over whether or not they knew each other in Athens and who is more fabulous. They eventually agree that they have different definitions of the word “fabulous”. They also both seem to have different definitions of what it means to “know” a person. Phaedra says that Athens is a small town and although she was never friends with Nene (because Nene’s OLDER) she did know who she was. Nene still swears she never heard of Phaedra. Even after it is revealed that Nene called Phaedra years ago wanting to do a reality show, Nene still won’t admit that she knew who Phaedra was. OMG! Like everything else that happened in Atlanta this season, this argument is pointless and annoying. Nene is seriously getting on my last nerve right now.

Nene and Greg are still going through with the divorce. Nene refused to answer a question about whether or not Greg cheated while at the same time implying that he did. He is still living in the basement but has plans to move out now that he is broke and Nene is the one paying the rent. I always assumed that they only rent those big houses while filming and move to an apartment in the off season.

Then Andy wants to discuss the way Kim talks to her assistant, Sweetie. Phaedra put her lawyering skills to work and made a good argument for why Kim’s behavior is offensive to black women, and I do see her point. But the truth of the matter is that Kim is just a loud, rude, obnoxious woman. It has nothing to do with black, white, employee, friend… it’s just the way Kim is. And honestly, I didn’t see Kim talking to anyone else all that much more respectfully than how she talked to Sweetie. At least Sweetie gets paid to put up with it.

Nene claimed that her problem with Kim and Sweetie really wasn’t a race issue, but rather a human respect issue. LOL. That was funny coming from the woman who spent the season screaming in people’s faces and threatening to snap necks and pop out eyeballs.

And that was about it. A pretty boring reunion over all. Next week doesn’t look all that much better except that we get to see Kandi confront Kim about the Tardy for the Party money. But we already know how that’s going to go: Kandi is going to make a logical argument and Kim is going to act like she’s Godsgift to man kind and therefore she obviously deserves the majority of the money.

    Kim tweeted a pic of herself holding a test saying “boy” shortly after it got out she was preggers.
    Will Dwight or Derrick show up in pt2 in a bad weave or drag? Will we care? Although I found Sheree dating the fake Dr hilarious, she will not be holding a peach or an Oscar next year 😀

    • So it is a boy? Damn, I want to go see that psychic now!

      • RHofWhatever says:

        The best ones are the regular people without any silly crap all over their rented storefront window, or sectioned off front room. Kims was Grandma who has a Gift. It’s honest and unflaunted without foolish gibber-gabber and props. So stay away from neon psychic signs, people! LOL

      • humbruh says:

        If Kim’s baby ends up being a boy Allison DuBois’ head is gonna explode. How dare someone else have greater super powers than she does!

  2. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @RCH, I don’t know why she was playing dumb on the reunion. I wonder if the twitpic is still out there or did she delete it…

    • Maybe Kroy decided he wanted to keep it a secret. Some people are superstitious about stuff like that. Or maybe she just did it to get more attention. I’m sure she got a ton of tweets during the reunion asking what sex the baby is.

  3. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Found it! “Research me, you’ll find me. Hit them keys and Google me”. I googled her ass and found the pic.

  4. Golden Girl says:

    Great job on the recap RCH. I was wondering why Cynthia needed to sign a prenup? I mean she could’t even afford to pay the $3,000.00 bar tab for her wedding.

  5. MickeyMouth says:

    Nice recap. I think I am finally done giving RHOA a try. I barely watched them before and this is the first season I watched almost all the shows and I still find them boring.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I have never managed a full season with these “ladies” – yet they seem to have very high ratings! It is time to say goodbye for good.

  6. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @GoldenGirl, Cynthia may be house rich and cash poor. She also might have her money tied up in investments like stocks and multiple properties. The prenup might just state everything goes to her daughter in case of death/injury. Cynthia just doesn’t have a lot of “fluid” money.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I wondered if she has a money manager/financial planner – which has her assets tied up and like you said – cash poor and hopefully Peter safe.

      • Golden Girl says:

        That is true I didn’t think of that because I believe that house was hers before they got married. ITA WCW “Peter safe”

    • iwannabeanarchy says:

      I’m with you on this theory, TrueLifeDiva. Plus she also has greater earning potential then he does as she is a successful model and will probably obtain more gigs due to her exposure of the show (at least I hope so, because I liked her).

  7. Terry says:

    Hey RCH!

    Nice recap. I’m with MickeyMouse.

    I’d actually maybe watch if they got rid of Kandi, whom I can’t stand. She’s always so put out by other people and, for a person like me who is interested in narcissism, antisocial behavior, and so forth, that’s saying a lot. I hate Kandi. I can’t find a single redeeming quality in her. I don’t like her music, I don’t like anything about her.

  8. jezzibel says:

    am I the only one thinkng that Kim is attempting to follow the Bethenny route of getting her own show on Bravo
    1. unmarried and pregnant..Check
    2. Relationship book….Check
    3. I bet she would get married if I gauranteed her own show

    • Maybe. I’d probably watch a show about Kim. She sure is a character.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Oy, I can hear it now….”Sweeeeeteeeeee!”

        & Kim could have guest stars like Jill Zarin “Bawwbee!” and Whitney Houston “BahBeee!” Imagine the cacophony of those three together….Foghorns R Us. And those egos. Oh, the insanity.

        OK, so I’d prolly watch too. 😉

    • missmi says:

      no you ae not. I have been saying this for a while.

    • TrillianAlice says:

      She is getting her own show. Well talks are underway.

    • humbruh says:

      I do think she is working the Bethenny angle to get her own show. Of all the women on the Atl franchise she is the one more likely to be able to carry her own show (at least for a few epis til we got bored). As far as the marriage piece is concerned, I don’t see that one happening. Why? Because I think that Kim’s “income” is an alimony payment that comes like clockwork every month & she is not about to mess that up. Kroy cannot support that beast on his own.

  9. Dee says:

    OK, let’s not ignore the elephant in the room
    I have often looked at Kim’s features, hair line and the shape of her head and thought to myself, I think she use to be a male… never mind the voice

  11. Jeana (@LuvToLoveU) says:

    Kim’s (post) Big Poppa money wigs are nasty! I swear it’s horses hair! I had a horse when I was younger with a tail just like her wig! I use to have to pick kookaburrows (sp?) out of that damn tail all the time! I know horse hair!

    On WWHL Andy polled the viewers on who they thought the Transvestite was…Kim won hands down. I actually liked Peter on WWHL. He seemed more genuine to me. Someone ask what their money situation was and Peter said “broke”! That was funny.

    I loved NeNe’s dress, also. …..BUT, who in the hell is dressing Kandi???? They need to be fired!

    Thanks for the Recap! You’re the best at what you had to work with, Love, Love, Loved it (I tried to bring a lil’ Tree to the blog)

    • There is no way in hell Kim’s wig is made from human hair. I have owned plenty of wigs and hair extensions in my life. That is not human hair. I don’t think they actually make wigs from horse hair, but I agree, that’s what it looks like. Tail hair is really thick and you can see the lines of each strand. That’s what Kim’s hair looks like. Like, you can see the lines.

      Lol at kookaburrows. Is that the real name for them? We call them stickerberries.

      • Jeana (@LuvToLoveU) says:

        I really couldn’t stop looking at Kim’s wig and having flashbacks of Misty’s mane and tail. Maybe, this is Kim’s attempt at a new nappy wig idea! Yes, we call them in the South kokaburrows or cokaburrows and I still don’t know the correct spelling. I tried to Google the correct spelling and got this..That was about as easy as jacking off with a hand full of cokaburrows! Ick! Of coarse, that made my day 🙂

        Hey, you can use that line at the begging of this Reunion episode or save it for next week because I’m sure it will suck just as bad.

    • Vonya says:

      My horses have much nicer hair than anything that’s ever sat on Kim’s head! (And yup, I’m even talking about their TAILS!) Given Kim and Sweat-ie’s smoking habit, my horses’ smell better, too–even in winter!

  12. Shari says:

    If you ask me, Nene is the trannie. She has a manly look to her.

  13. WindyCityWondering says:

    NeNe making all those sour puss faces was getting very annoying as were her answers/non answers, totally bored with the whole thing attitude. Phaedra should just take her down and be done with it!

  15. krone says:

    These women are so boring. Sherree Who? Stick a fork in neNe, she’s done. She and Kim are in a race to see whom is the most vulgar yet uninteresting bag of classless crap. I get an occasional chuckle from Phaedra but wouldn’t miss her should she disappear tomorrow. Kandi, well either get your $$ from Kim or shut up about it. Why she even bothered with her after “Tardy” is a complete mystery. Cynthia, nice lady but why she got married with so many red flags just fluttering away is beyond me. No real drama: no real friendships: no real show. I’m over them.

  16. TheRealBex says:

    “I don’t think Phaedra hates white people. I think she hates her mother in law and that comment was a personal dig.”

    Excellent insight!

  17. WindyCityWondering says:

    I mainly tuned in to see what the stylist did with them. Kandi looked like she was wearing a Flintstone Halloween costume (I like her with shorter hair but not the woody woodpecker do). Kim does not look good in black and should have popped for a new wig – she did not look radiant. NeNe looked like a sausage bursting out of it’s casing completed with a sour puss face. Phaedra, Sheree and Cynthia looked nice. It was one big Louboutin show on the floor!

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Although I (sorta) watched the show….had it on but it wasn’t like a lot of attention needed to get the gist of what was going on….I didn’t really note anything about Kandi except the hair.

      But after seeing a comment at Lynn’s & now a pic, I see that justanothermary’s justanothervirgil was absolutely right!!!! Kandi was wearing Flintstone couture!! LOLOLOLOL! OK, that’s the best part of the reunion for me! LOL

    • I noticed the Louboutins too! Lol.

  18. Fairweather Viewer Ford says:

    I think Nene is a very miserable and unhappy person. She can’t stand anyone who doesn’t fall in line with her perception of everything. The woman can’t argue her point rationally and tries to win by screaming the loudest. Can you imagine what an argument between her and Kyle would be like? It would certainly come to blows and I believe Nene would literally bite off that finger Kyle likes to point. Actually, there wouldn’t be anything left of Kyle in that situation.

  19. missmi says:

    I have an issue with Phadres argument about racism. She can claim that her canned food generalization and white people is not racist because it does not come from a place of hate (which I agree with), but Kim needs to watch how she talks to Sweetie because she is white and Sweetie is black and there are still racial tensions in our country. BULLSHIT!!!! Sweetie is a grown woman who is getting paid to do a job as an assistant. She is free to leave that situation whenever she wants to if she doesnt like how she is treated. The fact that Phaedra can brush off her comment and then judge Sweetie on what her tolerance should be is ridiculous. There are plenty of divas (with paid assistants) out there with high flutant attitudes that do not think anything of belittling people and treating them like garbage. I don’t even think Kim is that bad. To make this about race is silly. Kim has a character flaw, plain and simple.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      During the NeNe/Kim screaming match did you catch the comments Kim made about how NeNe treated Sweetie at a photo shoot? Sounded like NeNe was barking orders at Sweetie and she isn’t even her assistant – paid or otherwise. ITA – Sweetie can leave any time she wants!

      • Yes I caught that. I believe it too because it just sounds like something Nene would do. I don’t think Nene gives a fuck how Kim talks to Sweetie. She’s just looking for reason to be angry at Kim.
        There is something going on between Nene and Kim and it has nothing to do with the way Kim talks to people.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree with you completely and was disgusted at how quick Phaedra changes her tune to suit her needs. What a hypocrite!

    • shaigyrl says:

      I think Phaedra was responding to Kim’s comment regarding the fact that she doesn’t see color. It’s easy for a non-minority to say they don’t see color and act like racism doesn’t exist because they feel they may not be racist. However you can’t turn a blind eye to its presence that is felt by minorities every day. Also, Big Poppy calling Sweetie a BLACK b! @# has racist undertone and Kim claims it wasn’t her….well if Sweetie was any kind of friend and ur man called her that she should have defended her!l

      • I agree. And I think Phaedra brought up some really good points. Kim is just too ignorant to understand. Big Poppa’s comments were not right, but in Kim’s mind she didn’t say it so it’s not her responsibility. But did you see the pics of Big Poppa? He didn’t look white to me. He didn’t look black either, but maybe middle eastern or something. Or maybe he was just really tan?

        • shaigyrl says:

          Yes, he does….plus his name as well. But unfortunately even those from other countries even consider Blacks to be beneath them. Also, Kim just proves how selfish she is….she hears everyone say how she treats Sweetie is demeaning. Even if Sweetie says its okay, a compassionate person would examine themselves and do some adjusting just in case Sweetie is one of those that’s afraid of speaking up when someone hurts her.

  20. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    I was right your recap was better than the reunion. These losers are done, there’s nothing else left we’re bored, they’re bored come on end it!!!!

  21. That psychic was just doing a cheap carny trick. Kim is a whore, she is of childbearing age, and she is obviously fertile, so it’s hardly a stretch to predict that she was going to end up pregnant, LOL. Not at all coincidentally, this baby daddy is rich, and Kim only knew him for a few months when she got pregnant. The pregnancy therefore sounds less like the result of a real psychic prediction, and more like Kim trapping yet another man into paying an outrageous amount of child support to prop up her lifestyle. As for the sex of the baby, the psychic has a 50/50 chance of getting that right. I therefore remain utterly unimpressed with psychics.

    NeNe is so rude and obnoxious, even when she’s not aggressively attacking someone, that I cannot tolerate watching her and I will not be watching RHOA next season if she is on it. Her little bit of fame went to her great big head, and I will laugh my ass off when her fifteen minutes are up. If I had to say one of them was a tranny, it would be NeNe. We don’t know that she gave birth to her boys, she is not very attractive at all, her behavior (and her features) suggest she has more testosterone than estrogen, and she is much bigger than even most men. She therefore needs to be careful about starting those kinds of rumors, because even the most vicious rumors can backfire quite spectacularly.

  22. missmi says:

    @Windy. Yes I did catch that comment and I think that Nene is at a point where she will do anything to bring Kim down. She actually tried to imply that Kim started that fight by telling her f*#k you. Where does Nene get off deciding that she can get in someones face and when they defend themselves they are out of line.

    @Cranky. Well said. Nene is very masculine and between getting up in peoples grill and her stature in general, she should not play “guess who the tranny is” on a show that includes her and has yet to prove her out of the possibilities.

  23. Vonya says:

    zzzzzzz…..Oh, man I’m glad that reunion show’s FINALLY over so I can get a few things off my (non surgically enhanced) chest! There is NO way in hell I’m gonna be sitting through another season of ATL’s “wives”. This season was as dull as a sack of hair (appropriate since we all know there’s PLENTY of sacks of hair frizzing around these braods). The only thing I thought was remotely amusing was the verbal sparring of the two “Athen’s natives”–Fakedra and NeeDee popping their “t’s” as if it made them sound more interesting, intelligent or relevant. Who knew whom and how long ago, whether Needee was sharpening her fame-hungry claws WAY back when by begging Fakedra to hook her up with Bobby B. for a show. Then there was that whole thing about which one’s older and by how many years- they should just count by decades so they can claim to be the age they act-that way they’d both be “almost 4”! I was hoping Fakedra’d say Needee was mucking stalls at the stable…oops, I mean “equestrian faciliTy” while she was hopping her horse to a fourth-place ribbon. I can’t understand why Trump would bring Needee on “Celebrity Apprentice”….she’s not a friggin CELEBRITY! I hope Star Jones unhinges her jaw and pops all her stomach staples to get rid of Needee once and for all!

    Then there’s the former mistress with her new tits and a nipple tuck who obviously can’t WAIT to pop that brat out so she can get her next drag on a fag (for the record, I’m not homophobic–I’m talking about cigarettes–of course with Kim, it also works both ways). If she can quit for her knocked-up-nancy, why the hell can’t she just give them up for good and save her kids from being diagnosed with COPD after inhaling 18+ years of second hand smoke? Talk about selfish! I hope her “tight ass Kroy toy” has the balls to keep her from firing up again–and he could earn a LOT of fans if he can keep her ass out of the recording studio for the rest of this century! Hopefully he’s not as tone-deaf as the other people who let her think she can sing! She’s on a reality show and she has NO clue what REALITY is!

    I’m curious…..why did Kandi, Sheree and Cynthia even bother showing up? Did Kandi even say anything important? I laughed so hard I almost pissed my pants when Andy asked Sheree about her “Oscar”! The only hope in hell she has of getting an Oscar is finding one on Ebay!

    I hope Miss Lawrence is the ONLY token “housewife with a penis” on the set this year. Dwight escaped Needee’s grasp to be thrown into the world according to Fakedra, who knows which broad he’ll be swapping sugar with next!

    • Lol I’m watching ShowBiz Tonight and they’re talking about Star and Nene. Star is making Nene look like a fool online and in interviews. And did you see her tweets? I saw them all written down somewhere, but I can’t remember where now. I can’t wait to see the actual show.

      • Ican’t wait to see it either. you know NeNe does not like it when
        people point out how ignorant she is! BAMM! she be in your face.
        how many of these celebs(i say that lightly) will take it!?
        Bloop-there ya go

        • I really hope she spazzes on Trump when he fires her. Lol. There is no way she won. We already know that.
          I bet she’s pissed that she had to give the money to charity when she doesn’t even have a house. She needs that money! She should have gone on regular apprentice.

  24. needrealitytvanonymous says:

    Hi,
    Been lurking for awhile, RCH – LOVE your blog! I think Cynthia joined RHOA to pay for her wedding. Peter’s business just didn’t go down the drain during the season like that and they he had no other funds put aside IMO. Don’t quite care for her whining ass now that’ she’s Nene’s puppet. Ugh.

  25. tweatcyn says:

    Hilarious. Love the sharks sending a distress signal to Bravo producers “save me”

    @Beverly in New Jersey, these days you can either find me here at RCH or here: http://buffywood.wordpress.com/2011/02/15/truelifediva-tuesday/
    Nice to see you 😀

  27. Periwinkle says:

    Totally unrelated to RHoA but I just finished looking at pics of Lisa’s house on Mauricio’s site. I can see now why Cedric caused such a fuss about leaving. OMG I’d be perfectly happy living in her wine cellar.

    • I know! Lol.
      He should have just packed his bags and been like “Okay, bye!” and then walked right back to his room. As long as he didn’t hang out by the pool they wouldn’t have even noticed he was still living there.

      The wine cellar was my favorite part of the whole house!

      • ~Luvz Film Noir Bluffs~ says:

        Is it true he only lived w/them for 6 months?
        The edits made it sound like they found him as a 7yr. old boy float’n down the river in a basket.
        😦

        • Sardonica says:

          Luvz
          I think it was a few decades ago when the King’s daughter, Lisa, found him in a phone booth covered in pitch and bulrushes? He then proceeded to live in the BH palace for 1-1 1/2 yrs.My understanding is Cedric is gathering quite a following in LA these days and heading towards Malibu with them. We shall see what transpires next. Surfers beware!

          *It may not be the true but I prefer my stories

          • Tuzentswurth says:

            I read online somewhere about him. He has a degree an chemistry, did modeling, worked in clubs, he is not helpless. He is well into his 30’s and can and has made a living for himself. I think he was supposed to be an entertaining story line but it all went bad.

          • ~Luvz Film Noir Bluffs~ says:

            ~Sardonica G……..
            Everything you post, pitch and bull’rush I will believe, believe me.~ 🙂
            You can believe all that I post, also……
            ‘cept when I say I don’t drink.
            **burps**
            So, I wonder which
            Malibu surfer’s……ummmm…..board he’ll be wax’n for a freebie sandy cot?

            Speak’n of board……I am.
            Wish one of those HaHoWives would do something erroneous or felonious or whore’oneous so’z it would be more fun procrastinate’n this weekend.

            Have a good’n.
            ~L
