I miss season 1. I feel it was more authentic last year. No one was famous and pretending they weren't. Do you know what I mean? Clearly they have all stepped it up. Better makeup, better hair, better clothes and I have to give it them - great bags! I have a shoe and bag addiction (and a CCC addiction...do any of you have one?) Here we go ... my thoughts as I watched the episode:
Did anyone find it strange that Lisa's mom wanted her to bring a total stranger to visit? I like it more organic, but I realize they have to figure out ways to film the girls together. How adorable are Kim's girls? But please Kim, don't let your kids chew gum. At least not when filming? I love your daughter's personality and enthusiasm. She clearly gets it from you. (I mean that in a good way.) Why does Kim have an assistant? I still have no idea what she does to make a living. Kim has been accused of living off married men's money and denies that. Fine. But what do you do? What does your assistant do?
I think it is very exciting that NeNe is writing a book. Gloria, Lisa and I are writing a book too, Secrets of a Jewish Mother. I know how hard it is and we are writing it ourselves over the summer. In fact my chapter on Education was due to Lisa 3 days ago!
Anyone notice everyone is wearing gold hoop earrings? I can't wait to hear Kandi's music. Oh! How many baby mamas do you have??? I have asked everyone this week. I love saying it!
I really paid attention to the qualities in AJ that Kandi likes. She said they have fun together, talk about anything and really click. The Jewish Mother in me says that the first quality to look for with a man that has four "baby mamas" is trust. I predict trouble. I like Dwight because he is a "grown up." Period. Trust. Yes. Loyalty. Yes. Honest. Yes. The phone conversation with her daughter was weird. Did anyone notice all the crayon on the wall in the kitchen? I love the doggie! As for Kim and the kids sleeping in bed together, I do not believe it is healthy for kids. It is only my opinion, but I think that if children don't get used to sleeping alone, they are more likely to be promiscuous when they get older and need someone in the bed all the time. Is it the Jewish Mother in me or just the way I was brought up? I don't know.
I love Kandi's relationship with her mom. I love the respect and love the way her mother sticks to her guns - right or wrong. I think right. She is protecting her daughter from a life of fighting with AJ's "baby mamas." I think all the ladies could use Kandi's mom for advice. You know it is honest and from the heart. She's not a phony. (My girls can always call on Gloria!)
OMG! What is that red top Kim is wearing? I had to cover Bobby's eyes! I won't say anymore.
I love Nene's fuchsia top on the speed date! I like Dwight the best when he has no makeup on. His best look so far is at the speed date. He looks so relaxed and open. Lisa, great green top! You go girls! Uh oh...Dwight put your jacket on! I don't like the see-through look. OMG Nene! The green top needs a BRA. I know you love when I say that!
Back to Kim, no gum rule again and playing with your hair is distracting. Stop. Sheree really digged Kim as the "nanny type." That wasn't nice. Not nice.
Dwight reminds me of Brad. They never care about prices when it isn't their money. Trust me, he looks when he is spending his own money. Sorry Dwight, but you know it's true! Next time, come to Zarin Fabrics and buy discount. The place you took NeNe is full retail! I feel this was a lull episode in the series and the pots are boiling.
Have a great week everyone.
