Tonight was really a double treat –- Atlanta returned and I finally feel like I've recovered from my holiday cookie withdrawal. Doesn't it seem like it's been way more than two, Atlanta-less weeks? Luckily for us, the girls didn't disappoint. Let's dive into lucky Episode 13.
The No. 3 spot goes to NeNe's interview with Jermaine Dupri. First of all, the juxtaposition of the two is pretty incredible. NeNe is no joke in the height department (especially in heels), so it looks like she's towering over him. Thus NeNe couldn't help but note: "He's mad short. Like he is a little munchkin." I wonder if he's a member of the Lollipop Guild?
After a slow start, NeNe finally breaks through to Jermaine when she plays the Kim Zolciak card. And yes, evidently he has heard of "Tardy for the Party." Who knew? If only NeNe had been able to ask him about Janet, perhaps we would have learned if she likes to get down to 'Tardy for the Party' as well. How amazing would a Janet choreographed routine to one of Kim's songs be? Or better yet, a new Janet single featuring Kim? I smell a hit.
The No. 2 moment this week was Phaedra's "Sip and See." Now like Sheree, I had never heard of such a thing before. However my fellow Bravotv.com editor and genius behind the Haus of Bravo blog, Kim, informed me that this is indeed a real Southern tradition. So thank you, Phaedra, for giving us all a lesson in Southern culture.
Now why was everyone dressed up like movie characters? As Phaedra pointed out, Kim was rocking a major Jessica Rabbit look, but Cynthia definitely had a Holly Golightly vibe about her. It was more like a "Sip and See and Cinema."
In any event, what really brought joy to my soul was seeing Spark St. Jude snapping some candids in the background. I can only imagine all the peach-packed poses she came up with...
Honestly, I laughed for 5 minutes about the Lollipop Guild comment!!! Thanks for the Monday chuckle!!
CAN YOU SAY "THERAPY"?... I AM SOO TIRED OF YOU AND YOUR BLOW UPS. YOU USE TO BE MY GIRL, BUT NOW, YOUR SH*T IS PLAYING OUT. FOR THOSE THAT DON'T "REALLY" SEE WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM, THEY MAY STILL HAVE PITTY ON YOU. BUT MY SISTA',FOR THOSE OF US THAT DO SEE WHERE YOUR COMING FROM, HONEY,GOD BE WITH YOU.
I WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU CONTINUALLY INSIST ON BLOWING UP ON KIM?
IF SHE IS SOOO TWO-FACED AND UNTRUSTWORTHY, LEAVE HER ALONE. IF ANYONE IS TWO-FACED...HONEY, IT IS DEFINITLY YOU. THE WAY I SEE IT, YOU BLOW UP WITH PEOPLE YOU FEEL ARE "WEAK".
PLEASE GIRLFRIEND, SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE...FOR REAL..
Please stop justifying your relationship with Big Poppa. The rules are the same for you as for everyone else. If you are seeing someone else's husband, then you are the mistress and it is adultery, cheating, wrong, etc.
So a Sip and See is a legit southern tradition?? I liked Andy's version-a Jewish Sip and See, otherwise known as a Snip and See!!
My favorite moment was when Kim revealed herself to be a Licensed Practical Nurse and NOT A REGISTERED NURSE, there is a huge difference.
HUGE difference! Kim did say she was a Registered nurse--Not! And how she goes on about other people lying! tut tut
just for the record...nene is right...you treat your assistant like a slave and talk terrible to her. what makes you think you are so great???????
Should I interpret the lack of blogs by Nene, Sheree, Kim, Kandhi as their lack of interest in connecting with their audience? They blog seldomly if at all. It feels like a slap in the face
You are right. Kim crosses the line too often. I don't care if it is for the "show", the way she talks to Sweetie is unacceptable in any situation. Sweetie needs to get a good spanking (or an a... whipping) for accepting it in 2011. She clearly has no self respect. And, did I hear "nappy head" come out of Kims mouth in reference to Don Juan? Time out!!! What's wrong with these accepting sisters and brothers in the ATL? Weird!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Andrew, The housewifes all seem bored to be doing the show, even jaded. It would be nice if they acted like they want to be there.
I use to like Kandi until she found out she wasn't getting royalties from Kims "Tardy for the Party". Kandi's been in the business. She knows not to mix "friendship" with business. So Kim screwed her. That's what happens when you are so quick to call someone you don't really know anything about your "friend". Can't you tell when you are being used. Yet, and this disturbed me the most, on national TV Kandi made it clear to Lawrence, who has a fantastic voice, that he would be signing a contract and she was going to get profits from his songs as if she was "getting him straight". She didn't do that to Ms. Kim (her BFF). Hmm. In addition Kandi has that low, low class radio show. Does that represent what Kandi is really all about. How could she ask such questions? Some folks will sacrifice anything for "popularity". So now she is sinking to things like insulting Kim ("Monkey with a Wig"). Hey, I am not a fan of the opportunist Kim by any means. I'm still trying to figure out why she is even on the show! However, Kandi has issues.
Extremely BORED with Atlanta this year...... They are so bad, they can't even blog. Atlanta used to be my favorite. Beverly Hills is my favorite now !
Wait, it's ok for Phaedra to say that white people have no culture, and they eat dinner out of cans, but it's not ok for Kim to say "nappy-head"? Come ON!!
Don't ya gals know if anyone in the RCC commits adultery or any other sin...all they have to do is go to confession & confess their sins to the priest...& he will just tell them to say a certain amount of Hail Mary's..& then the person believes they can go right back to committing the same sin as they have been doing for months...cause the priest has forgiven them...People wake up...that is not how the program works...when a person is sincerely been born again, maybe ya'll do not understand what it means to be born again...when a person aknowledges to themselves that they are a sinner & was born a sinner & in need of a Savior & ask Jesus to come & reside inside of their heart & forgive them of their sins...that is what it means to be born again at that moment...the Holy Spirit...comes & resides inside of your heart/mind...and you become a new creature...the old self passes away & you become a new person...you want to please God & not continue living the way you used to live...you would not even think of committing adultery..which is exactly Kim is doing...she can justify it however she wants to but in the end...she will answer for what she is doing & she will not be answering to a priest...but to God Almightly
Maybe its time to close the book on Atlanta Housewifes and head on down to Miami. Fresh new group of women.
Either comment (made by Phaedra and Kim) is unacceptable. Phaedra was given flack for her comment, why can't we criticize Kim as well? The comment that Kim made was almost the exact same comment that Don Imus made... so does that make hers any better?
I really enjoy Adam your show is kool Regina King ansd Jackee Harry are the best guest you had so far these aer and has been the real deal for years and still lookin like they look DIVA'S.
Honestly, I f *** wit u but sing you should leave that up to me I got your back try rapping and set the world on fire I see more of that in you and your not to old your a young diva's just try it.
I just want to know why aren't the RHOA blogging? Are they not supposed to? They cannot be that busy. Its amazing to me, I was watching the tail end of the RHOBH and since I missed most of it last Thursday, I went online to see if there was anything about what happened, and no less than an hour before the show ended, three of the Housewives had already posted their blogs. I know they are not just sitting around doing nothing but they appreciate their fans and viewer support. It also amazes me how most of the RHOA, who are not wealthy by any means, brag about how much money they spend and have, but the RHOBH who actually has money, never mentions it. What is that about?
No Phaedra's comment was not okay and the fact that after all the episodes since then you still find a way to work it into the blog means it really bothered you. Why should Kim be excused for her "nappy head" comment. It was offensive so she's being called out on it.
I love NeNe,keeping it real is the perfect name for her spot on 11. If I had the opportunity to hang with anyone it would be her. She has a great sense of humor. She calls em as she sees it. I am a blonde white woman and take no offense to her calling Kim a dumb blonde,because,duh,, Luv you NeNe Keeping it reAl
Dear Andrew, the audience viewed Nene ATTACKING KIM. If no one was there, I am sure she would have gone for the throat again. Why isnt she in jail?
Don Juan made various comments to Kim so why shouldn't she come back at him? Don Imus made negative comments about women who had not insulted him and that were lending to his gainful employment as a sports announcer. I seriously doubt that Don Imus would have made the same comment in the presence of any of the women he had the audacity to insult ...and I believe Kim, the ENTERTAINER, knew her comment would cause buzz without killing her career.
I think it would be a great idea if BRAVO would bring Lisa from Beverly Hills down to Atlanta to show these "ladies" was REAL CLASS is all about!!!!!
So ture Nene keeps it real, and the other should do the same thing keep it real we has enouth fakes out on TV and in real life
Please spare us the religious fanatacism. Also, why would someone of your religious conviction watch Real Housewives of Atlanta anyway? There's drinking, sex, smoking, cleavage, butt cracks, divorce, cursing and adultery.
And what do you call the husband? My husband was a philanderer. However, not once did I blame the women. They did not force him to betray our vows. He did that all on his own.
NeNe acts like an animal . And she certainly acts racist towards Kim. Always picking a fight. The only real, true person who behaves like an adult woman on the show is Kandi .
Why would a white woman hang out with black women, It is clear she doesn't identify with them. Could it be that she gets a feeling of superiority. I expect sweetie to come out one day and say "i don't know nutten bout birthin no babies".
Now Derrick is making prejudice comments *rolling my eyes* and maybe getting awY with it! When white people make generalizations about blacks, it's all over the news, we lose jobs, etc so either nobody should be allowed or everyone should. No double standards! ALL white people don't go bare footed (I don't). Just like all black people aren't on welfare or criminals. I often wonder if people that make ignorant remarks don't hear how stupid they sound!
can we get past the black vs. white thing already! it's old. if i hear "you don't say that to a black woman" one more time, i'll puke! if black women can speak to white women a certain way... then black women need to be prepared to receive the same in return & not be shocked when it happens. be respectful to one another & you don't have things like this to worry about! grow up & learn tolerance. it's not ok to say things like "white people walk barefoot"... and it's really not ok for "black women" to be calling other black women "slaves". RACISTS! leave sweetie alone for goodness sake! all of these women give me a headache and especially the hypocritical queen ne ne.
I usually do not post on these blogs, but I must do it today! After watching Nene nut up yet again on Kim, it is obvious she is just against seeing Kim succeed in life at all. Misery loves company, and Nene is miserable for sure! Lastly, it is 2011, can we please get over the race crap? I am so sick of the reverse rasicm, it is just sickening! Kim doesn't have a racist bone in her body, she doesn't bring up color of skin in any argument, yet all of the other women do! The first thing they say is "I am a black woman" or "she just doesn't know what a black woman will do"! Are you kidding me? Sounds like some major reverse racism to me!
the racial hypocricy on this show astounds me!!! they all need to stop with the racial comments and get over themselves. they all claim to be so much better than the other yet they all behave like ignorant racists!
I cannot believe how abusive Nene is. She is a bully and has major issues. She constantly attacks people and then turns it around and says they attacked her and calls them trash. If there had not been people there to stop her, Nene would have physically asaulted Kim. Nene needs anger management classes along with a life coach! Her behavior towards Kim and towards Sweetie was way out of line. She basically accused Kim of being racists by referring to Sweetie as Kim's slave. If was evident by the look on Sweetie's face that Nene offended her as well. If a white person makes a comment about a black person even in a joking matter the white person is called a racist but the women of Atlanta constantly may comments about white people and that is accepted! I don't think so!! Don Juan, for your information I am white and I wear shoes on a regular basis. Perhaps you need to take sensitivity classes or perhaps you need to spend more time with a few caucasions. How rude can these people get. It's is only a matter of time before Nene uses a derogatory word toward white people that is so far beyond the limit that she will have to be censored or removed from the show and I cannot wait for her to leave.
Shame on you! Nene crossed a line. She offended Sweetie and every white person alive with her slave comment. Nene is a bully and it is only a matter of time before she physically hurts someone.
Are you serious? It was Nene that called Sweetie a slave. Then turned it around by saying that Kim is disrespecting Sweetie. Way to try to cover up Nene...truth is, you called Sweetie a slave. Kim's just very high maintenance.
Phaedra's comment was pure racism. No other way to say it. Anytime you generalize about an entire group of people you are exhibiting predjudice. Phaedra implied that all white people eat canned food but black people have better taste in food. Way out of line. Don Juan's comment "White people don't wear shoes." was also a racist comment. Someone from Bravo please explain why this is exceptable. If a white person made a generalized statement about black people they would be raked over the coals by the press. Why the double standard!
IN THE NAME OF THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR', CAN YOU SIT YOUR BEHIND DOWN?!!!!!.
HONEY, YOUR SHI*T IS GETTING OLD. I STILL SAY TO THIS DAY, YOUR A TWO-FACED WOMEN..TO THE BONE, AND THE SAD PART ABOUT IT IS, YOU REALLY DON'T GET IT SISTA'. IT'S OBVIOUS, OR SO YOU THINK,...YOU TRY TO PICK ON THE WEAKEST LINK, HOWEVER; KIM GET'S RIGHT BACK WITH YOU.
NO, I DON'T AGREE WITH HER ANTIC'S 100% EITHER, BUT I'M INCLINED TO BELIEVE KIM'S PERSONALITY WAS THE SAME AS IT IS NOW ON THIS SHOW...I MEAN AFTER ALL, DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT STATE IN THE FIRST SEASON " I'V KNOWN KIM FOR QUITE SOME TIME" (?). BRAVO IS NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU A "SHOW", TRUST ME ON THAT ONE. YOU LOOK LIKE A FOOL WITH ALL THAT WHOOPING-N-HOLLERING.
IF ANYTHING, FOLKS ARE SAYING "DAMN, DO ALL BLACK WOMEN ACT LIKE THAT?"...IT'S EMBARASSING . JUST STOP IT!
Beth, So let me get this right. Its ok that someones calls you a dumb blonde in a demeaning and hateful way and a person is wrong to defend herself. Ne Ne has a anger problem and could have been charged with threatening to strangle kim. I am sorry but ne ne leakes is no good and a troublemaker. It is obvious that she had it in for kim so i ask the question why did ne ne accept the invitation to be there . Ne Ne could have flown to miami and met them all there. She was jealous for whatever reason. I think i have an idea why. Maybe she does not like the fact that kim has been succesful. Everyone knows kim can not really sing. But she made something out of nothing and i think that is what ne ne does not like . So she throws the race card at kim. Well no class ne ne now you can add racist to your title. You call kim trash and maybe your right but your a landfill waiting for her to get there. Sorry use to love you ne ne but i see you who you are now and you stink!
Is Sweetie West Indian, she is mellow dramatic and she gets under everyone's skin. Also NeNe has been attacking Kim on TV and I think she might be a little jealous of Kim. In the second season she said Tardy for the party was her idea.
In each city, there are housewives that give womenhood a bad name. Stop the screaming and cursing! You spend big money to look nice and then act bad. Hold your tongues and move on! The arguements are tiresome and make each of you look small! Grow up!!!!! Bravo, I know the drama sells, but shame on you too for selling yourselves out to such bad behavior.
I am not feeling Kandi's music anymore. Everytime I hear her sing, I want to cry. What's up with her hair? The style has grown out, please cut it!!!
Hi! Love the shows and that you are writing! My 2 cents worth, I think after a show like tonight (bus battle), Andy should have had NeNe and Kim on. Not that I want to see Kim, but maybe match Andys show to the drama of the night. Also... I think you all should have it in the housewives contracts that they need to submit a blog every week. Who reads them? Thanks! PS. and if you want some big time ratings - you need to catch kim without that road kill on her head!
Shame on Nene. You are such a hateful witch. You have no class. Whats with picking at your ear live. Nene Grow Up. I don't like the way Kim behaves like she is the queen. Kandi, get both those hateful people off your bus. You are one of the classy women, as well as Sheree. I know that this is a show and it is all about keeping the public watching.
