Bethenny Frankel's take on the outrageous Reunion.

on Nov 26, 2008

OK, so some of you were a little disappointed that I was a little bit soft on the girls last week. Maybe I was tired, maybe I was having a compassionate moment, or maybe it was the meds. Regardless, I'm ready to roll because this five-car pileup was one for the books.

Before I rail into them, I'd like to clarify something that is my bad - hair extensions (worn by several Caucasian women) is the same thing as "weave." I didn't realize it was the same. I suppose white broads just use different words. Now on to that ridiculous hour of a reunion. Hot-lanta will never be the same. I will start by saying one nice thing about Sheree. Her dress was great, and it something I would wear, and her face was pretty. That hair though looked like the tail of a Kentucky derby horse (while we're on the topic of a weave). The bangs or that wave of a swoop in front was a little much. She was consistent in having that arrogant, better-than-everyone way about her. I believe Kim is 30 if she tells me so. I feel like I look old. She mentioned the makeup and hair that she WAS sporting when she looked exactly the same as she always does sitting on that couch.

The question about these women "representing" African American women annoyed me. For the record, no one is looking to these women to educate the world on black women, just as my cast doesn't give a necessarily true representation of women. These ladies represent a wealthy group of entertaining women who make good television. I don't think it should be taken seriously. Rosa Parks, Queen Latifah and Janet Jackson are also black women and they're all different. Furthermore, I'm not into the black vs. white thing. We're all women and we're all different. I loved NeNe's answer to the stripper question, when she said that she strips for her husband. Whether it's a diversion or not, who cares about her past?
