No. 3 - No Bones About It

There are many rules in Housewives Land. One of my favorites is the involvement of some sort of psychic/medium at least one time per season. Instead of Kim's grandmotherly Psychic Rose however, this week we were treated to a South African medicine man. Or help artist herbalist. And this guy kind of made Allison DuBois seem completely reasonable.

First of all, what was going on with that jar of "medicine"? Given that you were supposed to put the medicine in your bath water, wash yourself with it, drink it, and spit it out again, it really sounds more like a Petri dish of ancient bacteria. I would not have put my nose anywhere near that stuff, but kudooze to the ladies for being good sports.

The predictions he made with his "bones" were a little bit snoozy, since they were all about whether the ladies would get married again or not. But the best moment by far was when he told Sheree that she was too old to get married again. I guess he was unfamiliar with "Who gonna check me, boo?" but I think Sheree was about one second away from getting up and going off on this guy. Luckily NeNe kind of swooped in and asked to have her fortune told before Sheree could give him a taste of her own medicine.

I know everything is geared towards viewer numbers, but....

Was including Marlo on the Africa trip really necessary? When did you guys decide that a woman, who has been arrested seven times, is fun entertainment for the Atlanta housewives? I was offended that you included her in the show and turned it off, or fast-forwarded past her. All she did was prance, preen, and brag, and expect to be waited on hand and foot. That wasn't entertaining. She gave Americans a bad name.

The elephant-besides the hippo-is actually one of the most dangerous animals in all of Africa, especially if they have baby elephants with them, and someone is upsetting them. The elephants can charge! (and I dont mean w/credit cards)

'Driving away' isnt a bad option if an ATL Housewife was upsetting the peace of the pacaderms. . . If Marlo was there ranting as usual about shoes and how fashionable she is when she go to McDs, etc, 'blah, blah, blah!', the elephants woulda put a swift end to that nonsense! . . Afterall, they are very intelligent and sensitive animals (I'm referring to the elephants here).

I used to find the Atlanta housewives entertaining, but they just aren't anymore. I think it's time to move on.

I'm glad someone else thought that bit with Nene and the elephants was as funny as I did. I couldn't stop laughing! On the other hand, that woman needs a serious reality check......

NeNe and Marlo behaved like true ugly Americans. They should be banned from ever getting on an international flight. BANNED

These house wives should never be allowed to leave this country. They should be a shamed of themselves.
