No.2 - Manners by Marlo
So as we learned on the car ride to the hotel, Marlo is writing a book on etiquette. (Watch out, Countess!) Now I hate awkward silences, so I understand why she might feel the need to keep the conversation going, but after such a long flight I think the last thing you want to hear about is how to pass the salt. All the ladies seemed to feel that way (except for NeNe, who was just amused), and Sheree summed up how she really felt about getting advice on manners from Marlo by saying, "I doubt very seriously that Emily Post has a chapter in her book on aggravated assault." Oh snap! And this was only the beginning of the tension between those two...
Marlo is just over the top. I'm not one of the viewers who holds her past against her because everyone deserves the chance to atone for their transgressions and grow and learn...none of this seems apparent in her actions. I hope that this season is the last we see of her and her special brand of craziness!
I thought I was anxious to watch the episode last night but instead was more than disappointed, disgusted would be more like it.
Surely Marlo doesn't think she is going to be a part of this show! Yes, Sheree maybe should have taken her chances and invited the others in hopes they would choose not to attend the party but the drama Marlo started was stupid. Nothing else can be said for it but STUPID!! What really gets under my skin is Cynthia, the so called innocent one, knowing she was stirring the pot just had to go repeat she had been invited. If she wasn't going to go, why bring it up. She knew exactly what she was doing.
Of course I am addicted to all the housewives reality shows and will watch again next Sunday but I am not expecting anything special. Hopefully the reunion of BH will be much more entertaining tonight.
I was wondering Why Andy Cohen just passed over the most horrible part of the RHOA episode. When Marlo said the F-Word that rhymes with Maggot. He told Teresa Guidice how offended he was when Joe said the word. But last night on WWHL Nothing... he should never have her on his show and please send her packing what a loser... she is a crimminal. I think if i was there i wouldnt want her having access to my room. I would be more afraid of her stealing than the maids. What ettiquete book says you can just show up at the airport and go on a 10 day African vacation without telling the hostess that your coming.
It was like watching a couple of junior high school snots fighting-how embarassing! However, we do enjoy Sheree's quick wit; Marlo shouldn't be on the trip and talking about producing an etiquette book? That would be like NeNe producing a book about being a sweet Southern Belle and we all know she is definitely the opposite!
Please help Sweetie find another job. She is too good to work for fake Kim.
I don't understand how Marlo can be upset. NeNe was adament she wasn't going, then shows up with a guest in tow. So, why should she expect gifts, or invites, or anything at all. Talk about lack of manners and class. NeNe used her plain and simple to be a thorn in the other ladies side.
Phaedra is funny as usual. Sheree cannot win in a fight because her "secrets" are out and people wonder how she supports her lifestyle. Certainly her salary from this show doesn't support her lifestyle. What has happenend with Kandi? She is not the Kandi from past seasons. It seems she is done with this show. Cynthia is a catty person. She is not sugar and spice and everything nice. She knew what she was doing when she "tattled" to NeNe and Marlo. She too is showing her true colors and is not very likeable.
I thought I had seen the worst of the worst with NeNe and her rants. Now compared to this Marlo person, NeNe is looking like a mute saint. She and Sheree are disgusting examples of women "friendships". Is making fools of themselves the only way they can remain on a reality show? Bravo, ya gotta do something. It's hard to watch.
Sheree talking about Marlo's arrest? She's got a few mugshots of her own...those in glass houses. Sheree also stole $400K from her ex, so she can't really afford to speak negatively about anyone with the amount of skeletons over-crowding going on in her own closet.
I was on Marlo's side up until she used the "f" word -- then it was all downhill from there. Marlo will probably be asked to be on the show -- who else is bringing the drama?
I love how Pheadra is "appalled" by Marlo's record yet her husband gets a pass? Pot...meet kettle.
I had trouble watching this episode. I had to turn away to something else when i say it getting crazy. i turned back to the programming 10 minutes later thinking it would be over and they were still going at it. I turned again. I just can't.
Nene was much better than expected these last few episodes. However, Marlo, Marlo, Marlo was a HOT disguisting mess.
How is the hell is she gonna ask to know where the housekeeping staff is at all times when she is a convicted thief?
Well thanks ladies. I finally got my sister to watch this show last night, then you all act like 10 year olds. She looked at me like I was crazy. You have lost a viewer in me and will not be gaining one in my sister. Her look said it all. "These women are nuts, and I have much better things to do with my time"
1. Marlo giving the ladies etiquette tips. Ummm...Isn't proper etiquette informing the person who planned the trip you're coming? Why was Marlo all offended at not receiving a gift from Phaedra when NO ONE besides Cynthia and NeNe knew she was coming? 2. WOW - Cynthia's behavior is completely immature. She incited that whole nonense w/Sheree & Marlo and didn't even tell the truth of what was said. 3. I wish Sheree had not reacted to Marlo's nonsense. You can't argue with a fool - she should've "kept it classy" and let Marlo look stupid. Instead they both looked ridiculous. 4. At least Phaedra and Kandi stayed out of that nonsense and big snaps to Nene for her own AHA moment, "Is that how I looked when I was arguing w/people? They look stupid." Yep, NeNe that's how you looked - not pretty is it. Big snaps for trying to keep things from getting even MORE out of hand.
Andy Cohen owes the gay community a big apology for glossing over the fact that Marlo said the f word. I will not be watching his show until he redeems himself.
I have never left a comment on a blog before but simply could not resist doing so after watching the latest episode of ATL Housewives. I couldn't believe Cynthia running to tell NeNe and Marlo what Sheree said about them not being invited to the dinner. First of all, Cynthia didn't even relay the conversation correctly and I thought it was so very immature of her to say anything that she should have known would cause a huge fight and Cynthia stands in the background with her mouth shut watching the entire fiasco that she caused!!! Next time Cynthia you should learn to keep your mouth shut! I say get rid of Cynthia!
I dont know about anyone else but I thought the "face off" thing between Sheree and Marlo was HILARIOUS! I kept replaying it because it made me laugh so hard. Marlo is nuts... how could anyone who basically crashed a vacation get upset about not being invited to certain things on the trip?!? She wasnt invited on the trip in the first place by the person who organized it... Phaedra! Not NeNe.
I just saw the safari clip....notice how Sheree, Phaedra and Kandi talk about NENE, Cynthia and Marlo constantly. Sad that cant enjoy a trip without hating. If NeNe died they would probably jump off cliffs to see what NeNE was wearing or if she made it into heaven. lol
Andy Cohen, good show. Where did you find Marlo Hampton. Who going to check Sheree, .... Marlo Hampton! Marlo was right, right after you guys just talk on the boat than you turn around did what you did. Yes, you got checked. Plus Marlo were about too leave than you come after her. She gave it too you......
Everyone is soooooo politcally correct it makes me sick!!!! Marlo RHOA, Joe RHONJ say the "f" word and understandably their is back lash, but when Alexus of RHOC said that she does not believe in same sex marriage everyone gets their panties in a bunch! I beleive that she has the right to her Christian beliefs without feeling ridiculed by Andy Cohen. If you stand on your soap box and ask for same sex marriage, I have the same right to stand on my soap box and say that I am against same sex marriage. EQUALITY is what everyone believes they are entitled too. Let's make that a fact!!!!
I love how Pheadra is "appalled" by Marlo's record yet her husband gets a pass? Pot...meet kettle.
When the news of Marlo's arrest record was shared by Kandi, Phaedra did say that she did not want to comment on anyone's record because her husband had one. Phaedra is the most honest and likable person on this cast. So do you actually watch the show before you comment? Love, Love, Love Phaedra Parks!!! Team Phaedra
I was personally offended by the Marlo/Sheree debacle. Marlo wasn't invited on the trip to begin with. I know Bravo producers thought it would be WONDERFUL to add a bit of drama and chaos to the script for ratings. A trip to the motherland would be a blessing to anyone with African heritage to embrace the experience with reverence, awe and excitement. Phaedra was disrespected by Ne Ne who invited Marlo #1, and rightly so, should have sought to act as peacemaker between to end it. I can only hope that the next two episodes, now that Bravo has teased the public, will provde us all with somethinng more representative of what cast members really witnessed on this journey.
I think Phaedra is the best housewife on the show. She holds herself in such a sophisticated manner and she doesn't involve herself with those caddy catfights that the viewers look forward to. Marlo needs to go. Is she really pushing etiquette down everyone's throats? She must have learned that from prison. Also I'm sure she didn't want to share bathrooms with the other ladies because she got sick of sharing while she was doing time. I wouldn't want to share either Marlo so I understand you on that part. One of the etiquette rules that Marlo forgot to mention is that it isn't proper to invite yourself to an event. That's plain tacky. And NeNe continues to invite these hoodlums to these getaways. She invited her friend Diana to Florida to stir the pot, and now Marlo to cause more drama. NENE you're a big girl (literally) you can hold your own. Stop bringing tag alongs!
I can not stand Cynthia. She started that argument. I don't know why Sheree argued with Marlo. Marlo is just a hot ghetto mess. Sheree is grown she can invite who she wants to invite.
I don't know, Marlo may end up being the reason I quit watching. With NeNe obviously inviting her to cause trouble, and then looking like a fool trying to break up a fight between her and Sheree. What did she expect? Bringing Marlo along she got just what she wanted....DRAMA!
What's up with the RHOA not blogging on a consistent basis??? Bravo yall need to check their egos and make sure they're giving your viewing public some feedback.
Good grief, PATTY P. Did you pay attention to what you wrote? To quote you:
"If you stand on your soap box and ask for same sex marriage, I have the same right to stand on my soap box and say that I am against same sex marriage. EQUALITY is what everyone believes they are entitled too. Let's make that a fact!!!!" (posted by Patty P. 1/31/12)
Yes, that's the point: EQUALITY should be made a fact. Fighting for EQUALITY means fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL, REGARDLESS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION. What you actually seem to be arguing for is freedom of speech--and you have it, which is why you get to post your comment here without being censored. However, others have the freedom to speak their opposition to you without being censored. We all have the right to our individual opinions and the freedom to speak those opinions--as well as the freedom to disagree with each other's opinions. (To return to your example: Alexis from RHOC has the right to her opinion--and Andy Cohen has the right to disagree.) THAT WOULD BE EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
Furthermore, supporting equality in terms of same sex marriage isn't "politically correct"; it is, simply, CORRECT.
And, yes, I am Christian--one who also appreciates and supports the separation of church and state.
God bless us, one and all--and God bless America!
The "Face Off" between Sheree and Marlo was the "FUNNIEST" thing I have seen in a long, long time. Marlo needs professional help. Nobody decides that they need to confront someone about something that they were never suppose to have been a part of in the first place. My! My! people will do anything to get notice. Why go on a show like this if you can not show the world that you are really not what people think you are. NeNe did not want things to get out of control because she was the one to invite this lady, and with such a criminal record behind her, Ms.Marlo could really get in trouble. Ms. Marlo is trying to find her a show to be on. Sorry darling if you are given a part on this show, not only me but, a whole "BOATLOAD" of people will call it a day, and will not be watching this show again.
I was disgusted with Marlo and her foul, hateful language. I too hope the F word is addressed.
Please don't let Marlo on the show. She has no redeeming qualities. That's harsh but true. What can she offer? A bunch of foul, hateful language?? What an embarrassment the other night. I'm Black and I thought I'd jump through the tv when she dropped the F word. What a nerve!!!!????
And Ms. Sheree, don't stoop to that level. Keep your mouth shut, walk away and save face. Marlo is not worth it and you ladies didn't look entertaining in my book.
It's unanimous! Cynthia was the instigator in that stupid fight; so immature! Although, we shouldn't be surprised because she started RHOA with a stupid "friendship letter" to NeNe remember? She needs to grow up and fast!
Everybody Knows..... it is in bad taste to attend any event uninvited. Not only does it put the Hostess on the spot. ;It makes the guests feel uncomfortable. Marlo is a Hot mess. The argument was foolish. They both dropped names of every designer and departments stores on the northern hemisphere ;and has anyone taken note that the only really wealthy women are the ones who live in beverly hills. The others are just "playing" rich.
Can you please tell me WHY these women never blog?? I thought that was part of their contract, they have to blog about the episode? I just think it's selfish on their part as we the viewer like to hear from their perspective. Take a look at Lisa Vanderpump, she just blogged after being abused on the reunion! Thanks in advance, Ellen
I have to ask since when did using the F word become so derogatory when america uses the N word profoundly. Sheree was classless & wrong & Marlo was too hood by addressing Sheree's ignorance. The argument was not needed these ladies need to grow up
Sheree is just the worst. With or with out Marlo rudely surprising everybody by going on the trip Sheree is the one with bad manner not planning on inviting Cyntha and Nene to the dinner. She was just asking for trouble. I can't stand her. I bet she must have felt stupid watching herself on this episode. Even though Marlo was making faces Sheree looked like a clown.
I AM JUST GLAD THAT NENE SEES HOW SHE LOOKS WHEN SHE WAS ACTING LIKE MARLO!! NENE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS SO SHE IS GETTING THERE GIVE HER TIME. MS CYNTHIA WELL YOU KNOW THE SO CALLED QUIET ONES ARE THE SNEAKIEST ONES! FOR SHEREE, SOMETIMES PEOPLE CAN JUST PUSH YOU AND YOU JUST HAVE TO DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO, DON'T LET THAT MOOSE GET UNDER YOUR SKIN AGAIN. GOOD JOB PHAEDRA FOR PUTTING THE TRIP TOGETHER, AND TRYING TO GIVE THESE LADIES A MEMORABLE TIME, BUT AS YOU NOW KNOW, YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HOOD MONKEYS OUT THE HOOD!! NENE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING WHEN SHE INVITED THAT MOOSE, BECAUSE SHE IS TIRED OF BEING THE ONE TO ACT A FOOL ALL THE TIME!
Okay the fight between Sheree and Marlo went way overboard. But my thing is I am sick and tired of the some of the HW talking about Marlo's background. It's not like she is trying to hide and a person's past is not everything. LIG, so what she has been to jail that's her problem and not yours! Now Sheree was just wrong, if you invited Cynthia at the last minute you could have invited the others!!! You are grown woman so act like one and futhermore who cares who paid for what, its hers either way it goes. WORRY ABOUT YOU PAY FOR YOURS!!! Nene is my favorite HW and I am glad that she stepped in and became the peace maker, You Did That Girl!!
I like the show, because of my curiousity of what the rich people do for fun. I am disappointed; why do people act in a childish and hateful way towards each other when you all should be grateful that you have been blessed with money to do all that you would like to do and not worry about finances. So sad! The trip to Africa should be a joyous experience for all. Not wasting energy on nonsense. Very disappointed! All of the women talk about each other. Then, why be around each other? Yes, I realize it is just a show and it is all about the money and exposure. Have we forgetten about all the people whose backs we ride on still today for their sacrifices in helping us achieve success in America? NeNe, you were wrong for inviting Marlo, without mentioning it to Phadera. That was disrespectful. NeNe, you claim you do not like drama! You could have fooled me. I thought more of you. Then, again it does not really matter to you; your getting paid, that is what it is all about; money.
I enjoy. Watching Atlanta house wives but this last show was a disgrace ship this Marlo gal back where she came. From. And send Cynthia packing too they both are snakes.
Phaedra is to hilarious. The other ladies may not feel the need to blog because Bravo would edit their comments and perhaps they weren't happy about that.
Marlo was so wrong for first of all getting the bigger room, she should have taken the leftovers. Dunno why no one addressed that issue.
Has anyone notice how Candy is such an instigator. Whenever she has a disagreement with NeNe she some what seems to pull Phadre in it as well. At first, I really liked Candy. Now, Candy wants be nothing more but to be the spotLIGHT. BRAVO fans how many of you miss LISA and ED? BRAVO I miss Lisa can you bring her back
Cynthia should be ashamed of her self for causing drama between the talls and smalls! It's been along time since high school so it's time to grow up!!! I was so upset that Peter had the nerve to say that the only reason didnt go to Africa was because there are too many BLACK people there. What a complete racist thing to say! Shame on you Peter-better check youself!
i agree why would cynthia be running back and forth making mess.she ant had no right opening her mouth.let sharee tell marlo and nene why they was not invited.sharee is a mess maker i don't like her.her ex-husband told her right.she cryin for child support when she runnin all over the world with the other clowns like she paid.this show tells me you can buy a purse for thousands of dollars but still dont make you smart.women yall make a broke woman like me feel so good.even broke,i kno how to act like a woman with respect for my self.no matter where i go.get out of africa cause yall are too stupid to be with them people.while yall wastein money.them poor people are hungry.its so sad.
None of you seem to get it. This is a GROUP trip, hence, you don't exclude anyone. The invitation to Sheree's dinner at her friends home should have been extended to all the cast mates. It's a mood point that Marlo wasn't invited by Phadra. She's there now. Sheree was surely being messy by inviting Cynthia last minute. Cynthia should have told her friends. You all should save the Cynthia started it comments, when in fact Sheree started it and her behavior certainly wasn't classic. All the negative comments about Marlo's past is just ridiculous. All the housewives have an unsavory past as I'm sure most of you do.
That bizarre exchange between Marlo and Sheree had me in tears! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! Thanks, Bravo. These buffoons make my day every single week!
marlo needs to go she has no friends ....she has inch her way into stardom, nene could've just kicked it with cynthia?, i luvvvvvvyou khandi but please what's up with your hair-old maid like -the old styles more u~ jazzy i personally want to cuss your hairstylist out, sheree stay classy yet im glad u no punkette, phaedra is all good with me, kim glad she is happy stay humble please, cynthia need to pray for her husband he is a trip he left her gathering open your eyes gal....
1. Cynthia- You had to have known that sharing your invite with NeNe and Marlo would cause drama. You're not as innocent as I thought you were. 2. NeNe-Yes, that is how you look when you are in your 'drama mode'. And why do you always have to bring along 'back-up' when traveling? 3. Sheree- Make up your mind, either they are invited or not! I can understand why you wouldn't want to invite NeNe, but to invite the others without inviting her shows a sure sign of 'got you back'. 4.Kandi-Stay neutral, don't take any sides. Remember a dog that brings a bone, also takes a bone. 5.Phaedra- I gained respect for you on this trip. 6.Marlo- Everybody has a past, don't let them beat you over the head with that. But be careful that you're not fighting someone else's battle. Let NeNe do her own. And if you're in it for the money....I ain't mad at you girl.
I don't understand why Marlo was sooooooo upset that Sheree did not invite her. After all Marlo CRASHED the trip in the first place. Talk about lack of "etiquette" on Marlo's part. One thing that is evident Sheree has "huevos" as she is the only one that had NeNe walk away from the arguement and she hung tough with rough around the edges Marlo If you notice, no one has ever walked away from NeNe. Even Kandi walked away(although, I don't believe that Kandi is afaid of her). Marlo may have gorgeous material items, but she is clearly WalMart underneath it all. When I first saw Marlo, I was rooting for her and felt that her past is the past and that she surely has learned. But she can really be mean and beyond sharp tongued. I do believe that Sheree should be honest about her finances and let use see her overcome her finfncial obstacles. Even if she doesn't, GO TEAM SHEREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought I was in a high school stairwell. NeNe, I still don't understand why you invited Marlo. She doesn't know the other ladies that well, you don't know her that well. Why did you invite her - did you want what happen to happen. I don't understand why Marlo was upset with Sheree? didn't she read the ettiquette book. didn't it tell her anything about going places without being invited, even if NeNe invited her, it wasn't NeNe trip and why didn't NeNe tell Phaedra that Marlo was coming? - If Phaedra wasn't a lady she could of told Marlo to find her a place to stay. Please tell Marlo to read the etiquette book front to back, also the bible it will help her a great deal, and if she said I read it already tell to do it again. I love the show but I don't know how long I can watch what has been going on. Please ladies be blessed ladies
NeNe - I am loving her this season. What a change. Keep us guessing! Kandi - Love her earthiness and that southern accent. She can cross-over to country if she wants. Sheree - She really does need to read Marlo's little book of etiquette. Miss Wannabee. She can learn a thing or two from Marlo - especially about men. Phaedra - Miss Southern Hospitality, Miss Southern Belle. Not! What a piece of work. Marlo - Visceral, gutsy. She knows that 80 is the new 60. Please try to keep her out of jail this season. Cynthia - Don't have a clue. Kim - Question Mark.
~Well, I love Sheree, so that's that. I guess I would have to linep with Kandi, Phaedra and Sheree. But I must say, Marlo is really entertaining, and so typical Atlanta. If you live there, you know what I mean. All of that aside, I am waiting for the fight between Nene and Marlo, and it's sure to come, no doubt about it. I just hope that no one is seriously injured when it goes down. I think Nene will learn that there's a lot more to Marlo than she thinks; and this little "friendship" she thinks she has going with her will ultimately be her Waterloo! Missing Kroy, too! And Kim is certainly my girl this season. They really need their own show,(just a thought, Andy). Actually wouldn't mind seeing a show all about Phaedra.......just love that girl!
