Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin get real about Kim's singing career.

on Nov 4, 20080

On to NeNe: Thank you for not disappointing. This week, you busted out the twins in a turquoise sexy top. Jill doesn't understand why NeNe doesn't wear a "brar." I tell Jill I don't understand why she doesn't realize that bra doesn't have an r at the end of it.

What is up with the French manicures and the fake tips? It is 2008 people.

NeNe is a good mother, which makes me love her even more. I even found it endearing that she didn't have a clue about math or her son's homework. She had to bring in her husband for consultation. He is so sweet. He's like Bobby Zarin. I love that he had to make the pizza pie analogy to get the point across.

The issue was whether 1/3 was bigger than 1/2. Jill, my favorite Jewish American princess said: "NENE, IS 1/3 CARAT DIAMOND OR 1/2 CARAT DIAMOND BIGGER?" That is quintessential Jill. The DeBeers method of doing math may be the next big thing.

DeShawn's husband bought her a beautiful Rolex. What is up with the labels? I get crap if I wear an Izod and this show has labels flying everywhere. Evidently, this watch is rare and DeShawn had admired it in Monte Carlo. It was stainless (or white gold) with a blue face. Jill was concerned that it didn't have diamonds. More is more with Jill. Got to love her.

The dialogue is my favorite part of the show, so I was comforted at DeShawn's birthday when NeNe said "Is there some wine up in here?"

All of the husbands are terrific and these women are lucky. The show should be called "The Real Husbands." They are all so sweet and good. NeNe made a toast "to the good life. We are so blessed." Indeed they are. Her husband Gregg is terrific, and I didn't realize until now that Bryce is from a previous marriage. Gregg has a lot of similarities to Bobby Zarin in being a good person, husband, and stepfather.

The people at this dinner, in my opinion, are the core of the show -- the ones the viewers like. Then NeNe took a turn for the worst by singing about Kim's career "You kind of don't know what you're doing." The irony is that NeNe really CAN sing. She should be in the studio. I agree with whoever said "NeNe shouldn't drink." She really lost it a bit but I cracked up when she sang "You say you're 29 when you're really 89." At this point, Nene's husband's head is in his hands. Truly, reality TV involves a lot of talking about other people, but NeNe looks idiotic dismissing her supposed best friend Kim. Here is where her character flaws start to show. She was quoted as saying Kim "truly has her back." NeNe comes unglued during this scene. This is war.


Hey.. just wanted to explain.. that the fake nails and tips is a southern thing.. and california thing. Almost every girl down here in the south has had fake tips at one point or the other.
