No. 1 - Wig Out

Well did anyone see that coming? It was like watching the argument that broke the Housewife's back, and it all seemed to happen in slow motion. History was made here, people! You witnessed the last argument Kim will ever have with NeNe, after five seasons on watching these two go from being friends to bitter rivals and back again. I had kind of hoped in the end they would go back to being friends. Alas!

I can only hope that Kim passes the wig torch to one of the other ladies. And that there's some new Housewives tunes on the horizon. Until next week I'll be wearing a black mourning wig.

 Kim's departure is the best thing to happen to RHOA!

Now that Kim has left, I won't be watching this show any longer.  She was the only reason I watched.  The rest of these women are just too crude.  Adios!

I just saw a picture of NeNe and  Jennifer Williams and from Basketball Wives together and I think she would be a good addition to the cast. What does everyone else think?

I'm just happy to see Kim off of the show. I think she had the intent to walk off anyway.  Mainly because Kroy was sitting outside waiting on her. She most likely had him to drive her and wait saying at the first sign of someone going off on me, I am out of there.  If not, Kroy could have been waiting on her for hours had the lunch and conversation gone in another direction.  Think about it...

 

Did anyone notice how many times she changed the length of her pregnancy? As others have said, Kim knew she wasn't going and she knew the ladies scheduled the trip to accomodate her!  In the states or out of the states, she wasn't going. If you can't travel due to being pregnant, then you can't travel with your husband. Why don't they take their kids anywhere? Where's the unity  trips with the kids??? Not just with Kim and Kroy but with the others. 

 

This season did show NeNe taking her son with her but the only time they do take the kids to something is for Pheadra's son b-day parties. So no birthday party, no outings with their child(ren)?  Making $$$ is great, spending quality time with your child(ren), PRICELESS!!! If you want the viewers to see positive things that you do rather than the fussing and fighting, show us family time rather than the cussing, sexual conversations, the talking behind others backs (while insisting that you are happy for someone) and the all of the craziness!

I love that you have a say about all the girls it is great yes Kim is your girl but you are not going to suger coat what you say to lie.

I wonder now what the show will be like now that Kim is gone.  While I don't think she made the show at all, the chemistry between all of the ladies on the show worked. I'll give the new ladies a chance but already I don't like what I see in Kenya.  Can you say Toxic?  And is Porsha going to be the new football that the ladies are going to kick around? 

 

If Kim gave the date for the trip s to the ladies to plan around, well then shame on her, but honestly, I don't blame her for not wanting to go.  She's changed.  She closed her legs to married men, she is a wife and mother.  But the other woman haven't changed their opinion of her, they have kept her in this "gold digger" box and won't let her out.  Too bad, I think the interaction between all of them and their families would have been fun to watch.  I know Kim is no Saint, but none of them are.  I believe NeNe and Kim's relationship on the show was one of the best in the Housewives franchise but all good things do have to come to an end.

 

 NeNe, who is extremely talented, was out of control the past two seasons, hating on Kim for maybe her Tardy For The Party success and her relationship with Kroy.   I also think NeNe was under some personal stress of her own.  I'm glad for NeNe's success and from the looks of things her relationship with Greg is back on track.  They are a darling couple.  But i feel differently about NeNe than I did at first.  She has become harder and a little mean.  I still love her though and hope that what I'm seeing on RHOA is just a small percentage of who she really is.  I'm hoping for much success for her in all her different projects and I hope she gives Porsha a chance.

 

I'm loving Phaedra.  She is very articulate and admits when she is wrong, with style and grace.  The flower arrangement was over the top, but the gesture was very nice.  This reminds me of when Phaedra hired the stripper for Kandi's party that went bad and came to Kandi with a cake and a apology.  I think Phaedra has good values, style and grace.  I like her.  I hope she gives Porsha a chance.

 

Kandi is another favorite of mine.   She can hold her own and I'm glad she has found her man.  Looking forward to watching her as always.

 

Cynthia is becoming stronger.  She is a beautiful woman and i like see thing that.  I too hope that she gives Prosha a chance.

 

I'm not fond of Kenya.  Don't like what I see at all.  She was horrible at the fashion show at the Bailey Agency and has gone downhill from there in my opinion.  I don't enjoy watching her.

 

I hope the ladies give Porsha a chance.  She seems young and maybe a little nervous.  But I like her.

I'm still not sure who you are.  But I think the viewing audience will slow fade away to nothing with Kim's exit and the entrance of kooochy crack wannnabe a mama Ms USA 1988.  Since you aren't someone we know,spend your time finding Mish Mash USA a hubby.  Good luck with that one.

Don't try to make excuses for Porsha. She is just a scatter brain. I do think that it was nice of Phaedra to extend the olive branch and admit what she said, apologize and give Cythina a token of peace with flowers. I can't be harsh on Phaedra anymore about that situation because I don't think that the other ladies would have handled it the way Phaedra did. And as far as Kim goes,.. kick rocks.

Kim is notorious for using people.  She used Big Papa for all of her expensive purchases of cars and jewelry, something she could never afford on her own.  I think this Big Papa came to his senses and decided not to divorce his wife, since I think he finally saw the real Kim.  She used Kandi for her so called singing career, which never really took off and she ended up getting more money than Kandi for that song.  And now she is using her husband for everything she possibly can until he has nothing left.  I don't think Kroy is too bright, since he does not see the real Kim.  Once all the money from Kroy is gone, I suspect she will divorce him in a New York minute and move on to the next very rich person.  Kim even used Bravo TV and Bravo TV was more than happy to let her do it as long as it brought in ratings.

Kim had no intentions of going on the trip and she knew it. If she wanted to go on the trip, why did she pick such dates that would possibly be close to her due date? Also the fact that she decided to go on a trip with Kroy in the states during those same dates wreaks of hypocrisy. Furthermore, I am tired of Kim being placed on pedestal for her role as a mother. In not one of those scenes have I seen her with her baby. As a matter of fact, the only time I saw her baby or third born was when she was passing him off to the nanny. At least Phaedra spent quality time with her child after he was born until she went to work. What is Kim going to do once her youngest children become school age? NOTHING ! -- about as much as she did when it came to moving. As a matter of fact, in one of the earlier seasons, she had a nanny help her younger daughter do her homework while she was still being supported by Big Poppa. Now, how trifling can you get.

 

Kim's fifteen minutes has long been overdue and she will not be missed. Deuces.

I was thinking the same thing about maybe it was a reason Porsha only said 265 days a year... Now that was funny...

 

Glad that both Cynthia and NeNe made Porsha happy  by agreeing to her request.  I also really loved their  toast to giving... I'm just saying...

Kim change after she got her little husband. I don't like Kory. He doesn't have a personality. She(Kim) just started coming out of a different bag. Kim you need to remember who got you on the RHOA. I thought these were suppose to be blk  wives. Atl is the only housewive show with a mix race of wives. So come on Kim quit tripping show a little appreciation girl!!!!!

I have been watching since the beginning, but I am happy to see kim go, the swearing, the calling swettie and the jabs at nene was way too much.

The show this season spells disaster!  The remaining "housewives" represent the worst of Atlanta.  No grace. No Southern charm.  No ladylike behavior.  Just coochy cracks and crude talk!  These women give the South a bad name!

Between NeNe, Kim, Porshe and the other new one (Miss USA), this series has become unwatchable.  I turned it off halfway through last night's episode and I won't waste anymore of my time on this show.

It is time for Kim to go she is not feeling the show anymore. She needs to be at home anyway,  two babies a year apart.... My bad I forgot she will have a nanny

Making excuses for Portia's lapses is a no end game. They're coming one after another. She is not ready for the scrutiny she is getting.

 

Now, Phaedra's apology was exemplary. Fascinator head bowed, she apologized before the woman could hit play! And that was some floral arrangement (BHHW Adrienne take note). Once again, Phaedra shines and she did it with sincerity, while Cynthia wagged her pointer finger and said she might forgive but would not forget. Graceless, that one!

 

Now the Kim scene was a study in equivocation and lying. She is the queen of excuses and at least for me, the writing was on the wall. How the mighty has fallen and the one who called it was Kandi! She was skeptical all along. Curious how Nene led the charge considering she didn't want Kim along from the get go. And she and Cynthia make for strange friends. The latter inviting Kim and the former silencing Cynthia. Whoooeee. They're not long for each other or the show? Yes?

 

My cards include the smalls and Kenya.

So sorry to see Kim go but I for one will not be be Tardy for her Party as I do not plan to attend.

 

Ms. Otis regrets, she's unable to lunch today...Madam.

All she does is spend money and complain! In any episode with her kids, she's not being much of a mother.  As you said, she passes KJ off to a nanny and the oldest girl is sassy at the mouth with her or is on her way out the door.  She wouldn't help them unpack boxes last season until Kroy stepped in and I still don't recall seeing her do anything.

 

Why give HER applause for being a "mother" when all of NeNe, Cynthia, Pheadra and Kandi  are as well and the airtime that is shown with them and their kids are something positive? Being a stay at home mother means you take care of the house and the kids rather than having maids, cooks, nannies and an assistant. If Kim had her way, she wouldn't have been the one to pump the milk nor breast feed KJ. She complained about having to do that. Last season, she would breast feed him and instantly pass him off to a nanny, Sweetie or Kroy. What "GREAT" mother does that!!!

The only reason I'm still watching is because of Phaedra and Kandi, but it's getting harder and harder each week to enjoy this show. When a viewer starts disliking more of the cast than they like, it's getting time to let it go....the same thing with NJ, and OC...I dislike more of them than I like.

Its comical you're trying to defend a bold faced liar that had no intention of traveling with the ladies.  The specifically got travel dates from her and worked their schedules around hers.  It doesn't matter Kim's presence on the show was always unnecessary to me.  She contributed nothing worthwhile.  I'm mean what does she do? Really what does this chick do?  What's her skill set besides being a ex-professional mistress? I'd like to give her credit for something but what? All the other ladies have actual professions and some business going on but all Kim has got is a Wig line and she didn't even really work on that!

kafiglynn

 @SmartAssPants Umm that wasn't the point!! They were saying she gave particular dates so they scheduled their lives around her. Only to her then to say she's not going. If she said that in the first place then they would have just found a date that suited them...not her!!! Watch the episode again.

I love it Judith! I too will be sending Bravo my regrets! Buh, bye Kim. Have a good life! Run, Kroy, run!

 @kafiglynn  ....THANK YOU! Those who are coming down, why should Kim travel -  clearly didn't watch the show!!!! Kim lied (once again!) and this time She got called-out for lying!

I could have told them without them asking her anything that she wouldn't be going on that trip. Not only being pregnant and very far along to go with it, she has three more children she'd have to leave home for someone else to care for. Who wants to be filmed with a bunch of arguing women that really can't stand each other to start with, on a beach wearing a bathing suit. I know my butt wouldn't be out in the heat with a bathing suit on and a big belly bump.

 

All those women knew this, too, so I don't know why they claimed to have changed any plans. And another wedding....my gosh, they just had a wedding for those two not long ago. Bravo....stop with all these renewal weddings..who cares about them?

SweetHarts

 @didleesquat  THEN SHE SHOULD HAVE SAID THE WORD "NO" IN THE FIRST PLACE INSTEAD OF PLAYING ANOTHER GAME... I'm just saying...

Judith1234
Judith1234

 @didleesquat They can't...the only thing which makes Peter Thomas (Cynthia's husband) relevant to the show is a wedding, an anniversary party or another wedding.  Beyond that he is pretty much persona non grata.

She's not getting on a plane, she's going to Lake Oconee, 60 miles away from Atlanta...

 @SmartAssPants  That's not true... Every pregnancy is not the same... Kim knew she wasn't going in the first place...  If you had watched her on WWL last night, they counted 16 different excuses Kim had said as to why she wasn't going in just that one sitting with the other girls... If it was only because of what her doctor had said, why did she waist all that energy with 15 other excuses... I'm just saying... 

kafiglynn
kafiglynn

@SmartAssPants why did you delete your earlier posts? You keep saying the same thing and missing the point. KIM gave the girls the dates based on what her DOCTOR told her was okay. She had them make a schedule around her and then changed her mind. Her response to the question went from...yes to ....I have to talk to my doctor... to NO. Nothing is wrong with her not going but say something. The other ladies have families and priorities as well. It was inconsiderate.

SmartAssPants
SmartAssPants

 @SweetHarts  Well, of course, every pregnancy is exactly the same, and nothing ever changes from day to day. That's why she should have said screw her doctor & flown to an island in a foreign country anyway 

((rolling eyes))

SweetHarts
SweetHarts

 @SmartAssPants  @kafiglynn FYI, the date's were based on when her DOCTOR said it would be OK for her to go is the point... That's why everyone was having the meeting to confirm the set dates provided by KIM... I'm just saying...

 @SmartAssPants  @kafiglynn I'M SORRY SHE NEVER MENTIONED IT WAS DR'S ORDERS UNTIL SHE WAS GETTING HUNG UP IN HER LIES. ALSO IF YOU WERE WATCHING THE SAME SHOW SMARTASS SHE WAS CONTRADICTING HERSELF THE WHOLE TIME. FIRST SHE SAID SHE WAS GOING, THEN SHE SAID THEY WOULDN'T BE GOING DUE TO DR.'S ORDERS. KIM WAS/IS JUST ONE BIG BALL OF LIES.

 @SmartAssPants....No, ,maybe you should watch the episode AGAIN! Because your "I can't travel against doctor orders" girl, will be getting on a plane and traveling on a vacation with her husband...which is fine on the face, but, don't LIE to the ladies and say, I want to go on the trip and KNOW that you had NO intentions of going AT ALL. That the point, once the ladies changed their plans to accommodate Kim and Kroy  --- she screws the ladies ONCE AGAIN!!!

 

Kim is trying to make it about being pregnant and I can't when the LADIES knew that wasn't the case. That is why they were upset! Besides. it going out of the country was a "deal breaker" then she should have said from the beginning, "I can't travel out of the country. TRUST, the ladies would have accommodated her once again. No, Kim should own, "I don't want to go, instead Kim continue to lie and make excuses; and the Ladies are just tire of it!

 

As far as being a fool, that would be Kim, because she will be leaving Atlanta to go on a vacation with Kroy.

To go any where with these ladies would be considered a trip to Hell....this one will be just like the one to Africa.

 @SmartAssPants Then she should have said that from the very beginning. How hard could that have been?

What dummy would accept an invitation to go on a trip and not ask were???? I t could have been a trip to Hell for all she knew. But she will take that one soon enough...lol
