Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Episode 3: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor wants to book an appointment with Psychic Rose.
Kim's in-laws are from rural Montana. Kim is one of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. This is obviously a recipe for mayhem, and lucky for all of us, the cameras were rolling the whole time. Let's take a look at how Kim handled the Biermann invasion. (Spoiler: It involved cigarettes, wine, and pizza.)
Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Is there a Psychic Rose waiting list, and can I get on it? This woman seems to be the real deal, and I could always use some life guidance. Rose has predicted both of Kim's kids with Kroy, and she just gives off really good vibes. Sort of like if your grandmother doled out predictions (rather than judgments and Worther's Originals).
But this time Rose had some not great news about Kim's in-laws. To put it bluntly, they don't want Kroy to marry Kim. What?! Do they not realize how great this will be? Christmas' spent listening to Tardy for the Mistletoe, Kim dressed as Mrs. Claus, holiday wigs. But OK, maybe they just need some convincing since they've only met Kim once. And Kim is determined to win them over, so perhaps this is one premonition of Rose's that won't come true.
How many members of the Zolciak-Biermann household does it take to warm up a pizza? Well it was definitely a group effort due the the missing pizza stone. But luckily after a few moments of clattering noises and still no stone, Kim put her McGyver wig on and came up with a solution -- throw it on top of an upside down cookie sheet. Kim is nothing if not a problem solver.
However I had a few questions about this scene:
1. Why not just put the pizza directly on the rack?
2. It looked like a delivery pizza, so why was it cold?
3. Was one pizza really enough for all of these people?
4. Most importantly -- Why was no one eating pizza when we cut to their dinner?
Perhaps the upside down cookie sheet idea didn't pan out quite so well. But to be fair, Kim's made it clear that she's not a cook by any means.
Leave it to Kim to find some sort of miracle non-surgical facelift. And of course it involves odd face paint and the plastic surgeon rubbing her with a strange (electrical?) apparatus. Because none of Kim's wonder cures are ever free from some manner of embarrassment.
And Jen's along for the ride, which brightens any scene. And given we're coming off a season full of Bedroom Kandi, Kim and Jen can't help but make vibrator jokes about the doctor's, well, vibrator. Was that thing really manufactured for the sole purpose of distracting patients from pain? I'm skeptical as to the effectiveness of that thing, but whatever works.
In her continued attempt to win over the Biermann brood, Kim calls in her trusty stylist, Shun, to bring in some mother-appropriate dresses for Kathy and her own mother, Karen. Kathy was a good sport, but something tells me she was a bit put off at first by Shun's funky style. But once she got to scope out the styles, she was sold. Except for the "cleavage," which quite frankly I didn't see, but sure, raise that neckline and add a dickey if you like.
But oh wait, what happened to Karen? Evidently she got caught up putting on deodorant. What? How hot was it that day? In any event, Karen never showed and just wanted Kim to send her pictures of the dress options. That's no fun! Hopefully she didn't come in person because of the deodorant crisis and not because she was still irritated from their first foray into dress shopping.
