I know, I know, I'm late! (Insert pregnancy joke here). Things have been a bit crazy over at the bravotv.com offices, because we've been slaving away to create shiny new toys for you! It is the season of giving after all. So be sure to check out our Tweet Tracker to get the 411 on all things Bravo (including the Atlanta ladies). You can also share your side of any Atlanta hot topic on our Tweet Battle page. Finally, a forum exists where we can debate such important topics as, "Which is better: Sheree's dancing or Kim's singing?"
But enough shameless plugging, let's get to the back to the task at hand. For this week's #3 moment I'm going to do something a little crazy and give it to one of our online exclusive clips, "A Talent Show." Trust me, you don't want to miss this one. It looked to me like Kim's father was looking to get in on the Tardy for the Party action while Ariana and Riley were performing. He had some serious moves down already, so perhaps a Real parents talent show is in order? I also think Sheree's daughter Kaleigh deserved an award for her flawless delivery of, "Who gonna check me, Boo?" Those kids really had the wives down between the wine, wigs, and all-around sass.
The #2 moment goes out to the return of vocal coach Jan Smith. This woman is all business, and I kind of love it. She's harsh (for example, "You were thinking?"), but I have to say Kim did sound better with her help. It was as if we saw a glimmer of Kim's inner pop star peeking out (similar to Kim's near nip slip during the White Party). Am I right? Or have I just heard "Whoa-Whoa-Whoa-Whoa" one too many times? In any event, the best quote came from Sheree, "Kim knows what she sounds like, but she's laughing all the way to the bank." Too true.
I read your blog EVERY week! Too damn funny you are. Wusup with Sheree and Phaedra not blogging? Aren't they contractionally obligated?
Kim's "inner pop star"? That's so funny!!!
When Kim went "WHooaAO! WhoooaA! wHoAoOOOO!", our little pomi puppy whimpered like he was in pain. We had to push the 'mute' button in order to be humane to the dear little pup. I was scared out neighbors also might start complaining because of the ungodly cacophony. . . With all of Kim's 'WwHooOAaaaAooOOOO!!!', we were alone in our home with the tv on, yet we were so embarassed to even have to witness/hear any of that.
How can Kim beleive that her sound which is so bad that it could curdle milk, could ever be 'entertaining'? This 'music' thing wih Kim is funny for one reason only: It's like laughing at a bad joke that the person upon whom it was played just hasnt figured out yet. (Sorta like that whole 'Dr'. Tiye charade!)
I think the ladies should be required to blog each week after the airing of the show. Sheree has not blogged in about a month. What is she doing that keeps her so busy she can't be bothered to show appreciation to those of us watching. I can understand Kandi because she is on tour and that is physically draining. What is Sheree doing? Does looking for a man take up as much time as touring the country? Phaedra only blogs when it is to her benefit. She may be busy, but why bother participating with the show if she can not committ completely. The viewers committ to watching weekly, but the ladies can not give a few moments of their time to blog? Really? Thank you Cynthia for taking time out of your schedule to blog. Your blogs are well written and thought through. You seem to be a beautiful woman inside and out. You are an access to the show. You bring class, humour, and style to the show, not just baffoonary like Phaedra. She is an embarassment.
Thank you MO J, I was wondering the same thing! I shamelesly check each day for the new blogs. Yet I am constantly let down each day...
I think Kim has come a long way in her singing career. YES, in the beginning she sounded an aweful mess, and no one took her serious, not even herself. BUT as time goes on and she begin to show some level of commitment to growth, I can see some improvement. As with anything, practice makes anything better. I can see some true potential with Kim and I hope she sticks to her lessons and rock it!
Don't quite get the whole baby dangling thing or the taking of the shirt. I thought this was supposed to be family picures or maybe not???
Yes, I'm let down there isn't more blogging by the cast.
Yes, Kim can't sing to save her life.
Yes, Phaedra is a hot mess that I would only hand a glass of water to if she was drowning.
But let's talk about Sheree and her "I'm an actress" BS. She was HORRID! She seems to think way too much of herself. She doesn't want to take an acting gig because she won't be compensated BUT SHE SUCKS! If I had to go to a play with her in it - and paid money to see it - I would want a full refund plus damages. I don't know why she thinks she's so accomplished. The only thing she managed to do was marry a wealthy man and divorce him and get a huge settlement.
She makes me sicker than Phaedra.
Does Phaedre have Turrettes? Because she is constantly twitching and popping her mouth and eyes, and the things that come out of her mouth are outrageous! She is amazingly self-centered and self-important...is she for real? I thought lawyers were supposed to have a bit of smarts. She sounds and acts as if the only smarts she ever got were from the Smarties candy!
I thought Apollo should have had his shirt off in all the photos. He was wearing a tacky shirt for the baby's first photos while Phaedra was dressed all angelic. Maybe Phaedra could've gotten him a clean white button-up to look more appropriate for the photo shoot.
I thought the friendship contract was sweet and that NeNe would appreciate it more than what she did. You were just trying to show her that you had her back during the trying time in her life and she took it totally the wrong way! I believe that you are a sincere person and an asset to the show. Keep doing you and let them be them. Each of them have some serious issues! Good Luck and God Bless! Thank you again for blogging every week as requested!!!
