The BAM! Squad

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor selects the top three moments of Episode 13.

Jan 10, 20110

 

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...

The whole thing was incredible. I don't know how Kandi did it.

I know you are an LPN, so that means you should know the proper way of an IM shot. Just a reminder always aspirate an IM shot for your B12. Next time have a professional inject an IM because it can be damaging to your dermis and epidermis if not done properly.

I think Kim started the fight and NeNe finished it. Kim has a problem with talking out of her face disrespectfully and feels she won't get called on it. Well, she met her match in NeNe! I'm tired of the other ladies trying to pacify Kim as if she does no wrong. Now we all know if we had a friend in Sweetie's position we would be asking her, "What the hell is wrong with you!" All the ladies were sitting around talking about Kim when she wasn't around, but as soon as they she was sitting there and they could have told her to her face how she acts...it's CRICKETS! The housewives are PHONY! NeNe thought she had friends on the show but obviously she doesn't. NeNe has had a few of the ladies backs and they turn around and treat her like dirt. Let's take Sheree for instance. Last year NeNe took her side against Kim and then what happens...Sheree teams up with Kim to throw Kandi a party...PHONY! This season if it wasn't for NeNe, Sheree would still be dating that fool that lied and said he was a doctor. These ladies are full of it. Phaedra had the nerve to come out of her face tonight and say Kim had a good show....EXCUSE ME? KIM CAN'T SING! She is not talented and she is not an artist....SHE SINGS OVER A TRACK! Considering she's been performing "Tardy for the Party" for over a year...she should have the perfomance down pat! Maybe if Phaedra would have heard Kim try to sing "The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing" she may have changed her mind. KIM IS TALENTLESS and for people to continue to support that mess is ridiculous! At least NeNe used a real talent to get a job. It may not be what most of us would go after, but lets be honest, NeNe can be a good interviewer...she loves to talk and she has the personality for it. Anyone can go put on a wig and sing over a track! I'm over the hate on NeNe..yes she has her faults, but no more than the other ladies. If Sheree was to leave the show, would we miss her? ABSOLUTELY NOT! If Cynthia was to leave the show, would we miss her? ABSOLUTELY NOT! If Phaedra was to leave the show, would we miss her? NO! If Kim finally made an exit would we care? GOD NO! If NeNe left would the show be missing its spark? ABSOLUTELY! This is my first time posting, but I just want people to realize that ALL the ladies have their faults! If you take NeNe out of the equation who would we really be interested in watching? Which one of the ladies that are left could carry a storyline for 8 weeks?

There's some deep-seeded hatred going on here.

Not sure if you are white or what our race is. But Iam a black woman and I get offended by the show sometimes, but it IS a show and you have to realize that this show needs to keep ratings and keep people interested. Kim is the sterotype freeloading white girl and Nene is the sterotypical black woman with a quick temper and a mouth to match. These women were brought together to do a show. If you notice all the rest of them are in between and pretty much laid back. All fo these reality shows are OVER the top with drama but funny to watch.

What exactly does "keeping it real" mean? Because if it means you have full license to lose control of your temper & your mouth and no repercussions, throw that out of the window & learn how to communicate with another human being. It's not a circus! And if she keeps on "keeping it real", she's going to find herself keeping it real in jail!

Confession in the RCC isn't JUST about telling the priest your sins! The priest only stands in the place of Christ - he is not acting on his own accord. And you have to do more than say the penance prayers that you are given after confessing. You have to try to CHANGE your ways that have led you to sin! Please try to give accurate information if you are talking about "RCC" teaching! Fair is fair.

I thought it's been an interesting season. I always find myself liking Ne Ne's sense of humor and her style. However she continuously goes off on Kim, not the other way around. And look they all talk crap about each other here and there. But Ne Ne consistenlly takes it to extremes with Kim. She started the whole thing again with her interview and "Oh and what do you think about a 32 old trying to be a singing star." First I don't believe Kim ever referred to herself as a star and I imagine she's trying to get by with this Bravo thing with what she has just like Ne Ne is doing her segment on the news I've watched the back seasons and Ne Ne has been on the attack with Kim everytime. Ne Ne wanted to be on Tardy with the Party and Kim decided to keep it for herself. It looks bad Ne Ne to keep attacking her about her singing when you did want to be on the song. You also threw her under the bus and tried to hurt her relationship with Kandi. Kandi will watch the shows you know and see that Kim also said they all were getting on each others nerves in such close quarters, that's what I heard. Ne Ne you need to stop going for her throat girl-that's called assualt hon and you are national TV. I guess it's good Ne Ne and Kim aren't talking and Kim needs to take Kandi's advise and not get back on the Ne Ne train. Ne Ne you do owe her an apology but that's all on you not me. But I like your bloop bloop and your sense of humor and style elsewises.

All the Black Sistas in RHOA are always referencing racism, but in reality they are the true racists. If Black unification is what you want, none of you show it. I bet that if the token white girl Kim would be taken out of the show, then the Behemoth of Nene Leakes would then attack another black woman and then she would get a real run for her money because she knows that another Sista will kick her ass back. Nene why don't you pay back Greg (your ex husband) the money he invested in you, after all that poor old black man is probably bankrupt asking Dwight for loans, he not only took your stripping ass from the Oasis Goodtime Emporium and raised your gang-banging looking son, and now you think you are great. You are are a big black Behemoth that is racist as well as the other sistas in this show, and always practicing to be religious, you don't even know what it is to be Christian, hipocrits, but the Lord is watching.

Nene is no ones friend, she talks behind everyones back. Nene is all about herself. Nene is Getto, Getto, Getto. Kim is right she is jealous of her singing career because she takes jabs at her every chance she gets. I cant take Nene anymore she is way over the top and did I mention Getto.lol Nene get some help you have anger issues.

This season feels so stage-y...nothing is realistic. I miss the real Nene she was the bomb. I can't stand Sheree and she is barely in this season haha. Guess the repoman came and took her part in the show along with her aston martin!! Lisa is missed where is that cutie Ed!! We need some eye candy, Peter ain't cutting it. how 'bout adding some likable characters.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

NENE',....

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!

Shocked white girl!

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!

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.

Shocked white girl!

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.

Shocked white girl!

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.

can't take it anymore

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 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!

can't take it anymore
can't take it anymore

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.

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!

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".

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 .

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.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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?

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

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.

What's up with the RHOA, no blogs???

PacerGirl

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?

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?

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

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!!

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 !
