Richard Blais talks about the Sunset BBQ and the Kim's trip to Lake Lanier.

Ed's going to the Raiders (insert Chris Berman voiceover).

The Raiders are one of the most storied, hardcore franchises in the NFL. They also happen to be known as a team where old football players go to die. If Ed's smart, and he obviously is, we'll see him on Dancing With the Stars soon. I'd do anything for a Hartwell Raiders jersey. Maybe not anything, but you know what I mean. Seriously, maybe I'd even cook a meal for a couple on this show?

Food wise, we are back to that Brazilian steakhouse that NeNe loves. There are hats, tears, applause, and sighs. But the main culinary event is at DeShawn's house. A sunset barbeque - I have to say that sounded sexy, didn't it? I almost wanted to throw my family in the wagon and head on up to Deshawn's place. But it was a sad party. The mean girls didn't show up. NeNe got some fermented grape juice all up in her (that's wine by the way) and continued the campaign against Kim and Sheree. The guys rolled their eyes. Goodnight.

I also realized what this show is missing. Dating drama!

I miss Bethenny's three Lychee martini attempt at getting her boyfriend to commit. I miss all the drama from the OC women and the men in their lives - sometimes the same men in a few of their lives.

And finally, we find out that NeNe has a different father than she thought. How ironic.

During the family meeting, I find my new favorite character on the show, Bryce. Bryce, in a moment of shear adult wisdom says, "It doesn't change who you are."

Life is messy sometimes. That's life and that what this show is about.
