In last night's episode of Atlanta's Next Top Housewife, the shots from Derek Blanks' Alter Ego photo shoot were revealed. A somber NeNe stood to address the group. "Ladies. You take beautiful pictures. But with modeling, you must own your inner-fierceness. You must plant the seeds and saplings of success, so your tree will bear the fiercest fruit. Tonight, we will decide WHO will be Atlanta's Next Top Housewife. Kim. Lisa. Sheree. Kandi. Please, step forward. I have four beautiful women standing before me, but I only care about three photos. The name of the Housewife I do not call must immediately pack her belongings, remove her wig and limp home."
Yeah fine, that's not how it went. But it's what Tyra would have done. Before you cast your vote for favorite look, let's review.
Lisa was a really cute girl scout who did look genuinely upset about all the crushed Do-si-dos. (That's peanut butter sandwich cookies for those of you who don't speak fluent Girl Scout.) Her alter ego was something of a cross between Rihanna and a villain from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Or a mash up of Christian Siriano and Brit a la "Oops I Did It Again." Pick your poison.
Kim played a Stepford Wife and a mistress. It's hard to admire a picture when it's subject is rolling around at your feet, moaning and bleeding from every orifice.
Kandi was a convincing booze hound who turned her car into a 3,000 pound weapon. Her drunk driver was fierce, but her victim fell flat. Kandi's "totaled" expression wasn't so much "Oh god, I'm gonna die," but more, "Aw seriously? Railroaded again?" Still, powerful stuff.
Sheree played a thief, so naturally she needed a mohawk. Somewhere is Neverland, Rufio is nodding with approval. Sheree also portrayed the victim in the robbery. To be fair, if you get robbed walking around with your fists full of hundos, you had it coming. Both thief and victim shared a common love of eyeshadow. Janice Dickinson would be all, "Sheree, your eyeshadow is like a the battery that saved a dying vibrator." And J. Alexander would be all, "Bzzzzzzzzz."
Last but not the least bit bashful was NeNe. Her stripper was a hundred "nip slips" stronger than portrayal of a straight-laced onlooker.
So, which wife had the strongest photoshoot?
my comment is this i loved sheree alter ego shoot. as far as the rest of them not so much. lisa's picture was okay i wish she didn't have to have that crazy look like that she is to pretty for that. kim's pic i didn't get the laundry mat scene. they should have done that in a mansion or took it to another level. now nene the stripper thing was okay. ms. kandi i think the message you protrayed was great, but not for an alter ego shoot you could have done something different that shoot you did should be avaviable for a psa.all in all the idea was great but some of the content for the shoot was wrong.
I think Kandi took the best picture. I showed a true statement. Who cares if it was not her alter ego. The worst picture would have to be Ne Ne. Omg! She look like a damn man, and who would want to see her strip beside her ol ass husband
I believe that Kandi keeps it very real on the show. Ive followed her career since she was a member of exscape and she always kept it real no matter what. I believe that all the other girls are just in the show for publicity and fame. They don't keep it real. Sheree and Kim are by far the most fakest people on the show. Lisa is tries to hard to be mature but it fades out here and there and Nene there are just no words for her. She talks shit about everyone just like Kim. I think Kandi is the best. But my most favorite house wife would have to be New Jersey.. They are all fierce omg i would love love love to meet them
i like kandi she is really down to earth person and u really never hear her talking bad about the rest of the girls. i just like her attitude about life. she is not trying to start no arguement or take sides with no one.
I THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA FOR KANDI TO DO A DRUNK DRIVING EGO.CONSIDERING THE TRUMMA THAT THE FAMILY IS GOING THREW.MY HEART GOES OUT TO HER AND THE FAMILY JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THEIR IN MY PRAYERS.
I agree with brownsugar. The pictures were just ok. I was expecting a lot more. Some of the content wsn't necessarily idea for an altered ego photo shoot. Altered ego should be a picture of who you really are and picture of your altered ego.Like Lisa isn't really a girl scout so why was she shot as one...I didn't get it.
i like the fact that nene out of all the girls really took the risk of her ego by doing the stripper. becaus it was suppose to be about them facing the rumors of what people are saying about them. she the only one to me step out in did it seeing that people where saying my girl was a stripper. but i did like the fact that kandi did what she did also.
I definitely think Kandi had the best alter ego photo shoot. I enjoyed all the ladies but it was something about hers that screamed 100%. It was definitely not the "kandi" we have grown to love but it made you see a totally different side. It was strong & beautiful but at the same time it was serious. I definitely dont think it should stop there with any of those ladies. I think all women should find that one thing that makes us stand out and put it out there. So many time our alter ego can hold us back from alot of things. It would feel good just to release that and start over!I love this show. Its always someone out there watching that is just like one of you women.I myself am like NENE bc I get straight to the point, down and dirty! I just love all u women!!Dont stop doing what u do.
I cannot stand Sheree but I think her photo shoot came out the best. Granted, I think Kandi's was the most compelling but as far as 'making you do a double take'-Sheree won hands down. Kim is my favorite 'housewive' but her photo is just stupid. It really makes no sense. She should've done the white vs black girl thing. It would have been hilarious. And considering the majority of her friends are black I highly doubt it would have been controversial.
Sheree's was the best by far. I didn't like how NeNe's stripper picture just fell kind of flat. Lisa's was ok. Kandi's was good and poor Kim's was just less than fabulous. But Sheree beat them all by a long shot!!!
I really felt Kandi's was the best as far as the ego's go but as far as performance Sheree picture really looks good.
I think all the photos were amazing ,but kandi stood out the most . Kandi seems to add great things to the show . I think the action of some of the cast , is back stabbing like high school girls . LOOK OUT LISA , you can tell by the way some act on the show that their not a real friend .
The alter ego shots didn't add up to all the hype. They were disappointing. Kandi's was the best. The girls didn't fully embrace their egos. Too much drama and not enough substance to back it up.
all of the pictures from the photoshoot were BLAND for me. I found Kandi's photo to be the best pic for more..simply said hers had meaning
i think by far that kandi has the best alter eog shoot by far cause it giving out a statement say that drinking and driving is not the way to be.
I think that all of the pictures turned out great, but Kim step OUTSIDE of your usual box for once. We already know your a mistress, duh!
I loved Kim's photo I thought it was done tastefully and the composition was great, her outfits and colors they chose were perfect. Artistically, I feel it was the strongest pic in the group.
I think Kandi was the best it really shows how she dosen't just do things to do it. She likes things to make a statement. Everyone elst was just okay. As far as Ms.Ne Ne goes she use to be my favorite house wife now she just as fake as can be with her new attitude and all that hating. Yeah i said hating and her home girl Lisa need to stop trying to fit in she's already on the show. Kim just looking for a friend and Sharee need go on with life she doesn't really like any of them admit it and move on.
I think Kandi's was the best. I think she gives of the best energy. At first the show was entertaining but thanks to Mrs NeNe Lisa and Sheree they've turned it into a very catty show. It seems like since Deshaun was kicked off because she was boring those three are fighting for their spots on upcoming seasons Sheree on the first show very classy now she is poppin off at the mouth cursing every five minutes. Lisa was my favorite at the beginning of the first season but you are a trouble maker on the low. NeNe you just need to knock it off. It seems you are attacking everyone that becomes friends with Kim. Kim you need to pick and choose your battles wisely. If you would have started putting these women in there place from rip you wouldnt have the problems you do now. And as far as everyone bothering Kim saying she messes with this one and that one for the $$$ so do all of you.Lisa u are an career minded women but you like men with money so does Sheree and you too NeNe. All of you besides Kandi talks abt eachother as if your in high school make the show entertaining not petty and catty some things are better left unsaid!
NeNe's ego's were so real looking. Look at her on that pole. And the lady at the bar. LMAO She did them so well......I think a lot of people are phony voting for Kandi , be for real. It was a good idea to bring attention to drunk driving but her pic's weren't that good.
Sounds like Kim's new song is DON'T BE TODDY FOR THE POTTY Does she need to make a trip to the lavatory?
Well I loved them all,except for Kim's. Sheree had the best Alter Ego pic next was Nene's, Kandi's then Lisa's. Kandi pic wasn't so much and Alter Ego pic but it made such and impact. It was great! I hope it hit home for a lot of ppl that drink and drive. Kim well ...... She should have been a black girl!
I liked all the photos.That's a really fun thing to do and if I could afford it I would. I think Nene was a good hostess when she was unveiling the photos.Her personality is great for being in charge. I wonder how she felt when Kims fall took the spotlight off her.I would have been upset even though Kim couldn't help it.Speaking of Kim, I really don't think her older daughter really respects her. I think she knows too much about her Mothers' personal life. That's so unnecessary.Our kids don't have to know too much at that age.And for you Andy, Happy New Year!!!!
I expected "more" from the alter/ego shoot. "True" representation of the "ATL Housewives" was not shown. NeNe as a stripper was okay...but could've have been taken to the "next" level. Kim's alter/ego was just ridiculous...
The best was Kandi, then Sheree, third Kim, fourth Lisa, lastly NeNe. Sorry NeNe, I didn't like the stripper b/c it made you look too transgender. You did a great job at directing the girls, but you should have done a better job picking an alter ego for youself.
As a substance abuse counselor and the daughter of an alcoholic, I thank Kandi for her strength and comittment to bring this important and very painful issue forward to the public consciousness during the Alter Ego Photo Shoot. She demonstrated, with grace, it is through our own trajedies that we give the most back to others. Thank you Kandi.
Kandi's was fantastic and made a great impact on viewers as to the dangers of drinking and driving. It was not her alter ego, though. Kim's seemed forced. NeNe should have let her have a say and another venue. The laundry mat was silly. Lisa's seemed a stretch as, I don't see her as any kind of girl scout or bad girl.. yet, she did look great in both costumes! she is so gorgeous, she can pull off many looks! Sheree's was, probably the best photos, as, they were caught, candidly, more so than the others. NeNe was so into that stripper thing, it was either too funny or too scary!! ha-ha.. She actually lost her top a few times while getting into that pole dance in a way too low cut top for a big breasted woman? It was funny, though, esp. to see her husband's reaction. he is so adorable and I'd bet he loved that outfit!! ha-ha
It's so hard to choose a favorite, but I can most definitely say that Kim's alter ego photo was my least favorite. Kim's facial expressions weren't convincing at all.
Love Kandi's ego pix the best, even though I don't like her personally. Not only was it believable, it was the only photo that actually sends a serious message about the risks of drunk driving. The idea should be used by the MADD organization.
This one is for Kim and her producer Kandi I think Tardy For The Party should be reversed to Ill bring Drama to the Party Woooo Wooooo Wooooo
Sheree is my least favorite, however her alter ego shoot was the best! She really is beautiful.... Next is Kandi....the concept ws great, however I beleive she was too vested to really get the emotion out of her for the victim. Lisa's was just okay. Kim's was jus horrible. She's my fav on the show but damn she cannot take pictures! NeNe, WTH was that? She looked a hot mess cooled off and re-warmed, yuck!!!
Kandi's was the best and it was her. Caring, kind and considerate. NeNe's was a mess but it was her, Hood want to be above everybody else. Lisa's expected something better then was was presented, Sheree's was her a jealous gold digger, Kim poor thing is just lost in the pack.
My absolute favorite housewife would have to be Kandi and NeNe for two different reasons Kandi keeps it real and she does it without out beating around the bush, you have to respect that right? I love nene because how can you not?????????? She is too much. but I adore her for it.
NeNe's alter ego photo is a prime showing of who she's pretending to be and who she is. She's pretending to be the Jackie-O of Atlanta when in fact she's a grimy stripper. I like how Sheree has her feathers ruffled about the 7 figure settlement. She is the one that put it out there last year that she wants that much money.
All the alter ego was good except for Kim, I think she should of done one that did not put what she actually doing and show a good roll model for her girls, I hope she dosen't think it o.k. to be with a married man, what gose around comes around, how would she like if that happen to one of her girls when they grow up and get married, but the best picture is Sheree, and then Lisa, Kandi, NeNe. I think Kandi was not base on what she would of done if the accident did not happen but it put a message out their, I would of like to see more of who she is, every one else good job, Kim should be shame of her self for thinking what she doing with a married man is o.k. her picture stinkes like her personally!!!
I think Khandi's was number one I think she is number one. She is a breathe of fresh air doing things straight from her heart with all the ladies too me. She keeps her composer being the independent woman that she is and does a lot for people especailly me who have great intentions for the people that God put in my path and she looks for the good in people and that defintely inspires me. I Love You Kandi!!!!!!!!!!!
All of the alter ego shoots were very good, but sheree's was more of her self. She just has that greed look about herself.
kandi your alter ego was very good, but I still don't see that as being your's. You appear to be mile manner/superwomen.
I loved Kandi and sheree's. Sheree looked beautiful and Kandi's kind of hit close to home. hey are my favorites on the show. I even like Kim. I feel kind of sorry for her, she's kind of lonely.
I think Kandi's alter ego hit reality due to drunk driving being a huge problem today. So she really stood out to me. Kandi keep it up and shake them hatters off.
