Hear from the newest Atlanta wife about the dramatic season premiere!

on Aug 3, 2009


I received the copy of our first episode almost a week ago. I was so excited to see it, because I've been on the edge of my seat to see how it would be edited. I watched it alone at first just to make sure that I didn't say anything too crazy that I needed to pre-apologize for. I have the tendency to speak before thinking sometimes. Something that I'm trying to work on, but it's a process.... Y'all are gonna have to work with me people!

Well anyway, I knew that I was gonna have to write a blog about the show and I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what to say. I waited until last night when the show actually premiered to start writing because I wanted to see what my twitter friends commented on the most. Just so that I could get an idea of what people really wanted to know the real deal about. So here goes!

FIRST. A lot of people commented on my daughter Riley, mostly saying how much her personality cracked them up. She cracked me up too! To be honest she was the highlight of the show for me. Of course I'm bias though. That day when we were talking about her and A.J.'s kids being sisters and brothers and she stopped and said, "No, we will be friends," I was like ok.... There was really nothing else I could say. Blending a family is not easy and you can't force things on children. Riley has been an only child for a long time. So having an instant big family will be a major adjustment. The part that really caught me off guard was when we went in her room and I asked her how she felt about us getting married. When she said that she wasn't really excited about it I was shocked. I know that sounds crazy, but I thought everything was going well. She always seemed happy, and we were always doing fun family stuff together, and she would even ask me when were we getting married. So needless to say that shocked look on my face was real! To find out that my daughter wasn't as excited about us getting married as I thought she was and to have to hear it while the cameras were there kind of threw me for a loop. Well that's reality for ya I guess! Riley speaks her mind which is a quality I love about her.
