The reality television gods were on our side this week when the show was only an hour. This is how it should always be. This show is only worthy of 30 minutes so stretching it to an hour makes sense. Going two hours every week gives me a headache, so tonight I am drinking wine, watching Trump, and thrilled that it will only take up an hour of my time.
The super annoying Piers Morgan is back to help Trump. He makes me sick and the joy of it only being an hour is sucked out by his presence. That said, at least we are only stuck with Morgan for an hour. The task is to open an art gallery and 3D art pieces that they make themselves. Trace is moved from his team to the other so the numbers are even.
Lil Jon and Lisa Rinna are project managers. For Lisa, Penn has all the ideas and Stephen is a dumbass. I cannot stand Stephen Baldwin. Nobody cares what he says or what he does. Don’t even get me started on his selection of jeans. I really want him to be fired already. He does nothing, brings nothing, and gives me a pain in my lower back.
Dennis Rodman is divine, although creepy. Lil Jon is simply divine. Busey is working with clay and a whack job in a way that makes you want to be wacky too. Lisa Rinna is super polite and sweet to Gary and I love her for it. When she was moved by his thoughts and danced to his madness, I thought she was fabulous. I now want her to stay for the first time.
Morgan comes to see the team and makes sure to throw Omarosa under the bus. He hates her and she hates him. Boring already. Trace Atkins is a killer when it comes to fundraising. Bravo. One of Gary’s pieces sells for 25K and I am thrilled for him. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I love him. Love. Meanwhile Omarosa is cheating and I love it.
Stephen Baldwin is under the impression that he is a real artist. Nobody comes to buy his crap and he is mad that Lisa sold one of his pieces? Stephen Baldwin has not talent and his last name is the only thing we know him for. His brother is a genius and he’s never there giving any money for his mom’s charity which speaks volumes about Stephen.
Baldwin is talking out of his ass and poor Gary is confused. Trace is pissed off he had to switch teams but is happy to still be in the game. Lisa wins with over 400K to St. Jude’s. Lil Jon will bring Omarosa and Dennis to the boardroom because they raised the least amount of money. I love it when this show is only an hour. Wham, bam, thank you Trump!
Omarosa raised 2K more than Dennis, but it was her own money. She is trying to get rid of Lil Jon. Never going to happen. Omarosa and Morgan are fighting and I’m bored. Then Dennis goes after her and while entertaining, it is just yelling. Omarosa is out and the only shot in hell Trump has to keep my attention is to stick to an hour to keep it real.

We begin the end with Kenya meeting with her event team as she is planning a party to celebrate powerful black women. Good for her. She is beautiful in her interview segments, but in the real life segments this chick is greasy and has very bad skin. She also appears to be a different color in every interview, much like Adrienne Maloof. She is all kinds of crazy.
Kandi is with Phaedra who is designing a stun gun for women. Dear Lord. Let’s start with her boobs shall we? Phaedra is torturing those poor little grapes by trying to make them look like melons. She needs to get a boob job and call it a day. Her new venture, “Phaedra Sparks” is another attempt to whore herself out for money. Dead people and stun guns. Classy.
Porsha and Kordell are in therapy and he is a total douchelord. We all now know they are getting divorced and it will be nasty, but he truly is a schmuck. Douche is very aware of the cameras and he is playing to them. I feel bad for Porsha because she says they are not on the same page and she may need to move on. Poor Porsha was about to get served.
It is time for Kenya’s party, which she likens to a wedding. Poor girl is so desperate for a wedding she is throwing a fake one. Bless her. Porsha is picking out her costume, as is Cynthia. I am fascinated by the bodies of these women. The curves are fabulous and the tight clothes to cover them are spectacular. These women own what they have and I love it.
Porsha is Halle Berry from a movie I don’t know, and Cynthia is Dianna Ross circa Mahogany, which is one of my favorite movies. She is perfection. It is party time and you know something bad is going to happen. Kandi comes as Tina Turner. Not really. Todd comes as Kanye West but doesn’t know it. Sidebar: Cynthia thinks valet parking is pulling out the stops?
Kenya is Foxy Brown and she looks great. Porsha will not be made a fool of so she comes as Dorothy Dandridge and looks gorgeous. Kenya is pissed off and I am excited about it. Is that bad? Kenya goes to Porsha and lets her know how disrespectful it is. Porsha is a bitch in addition to being stupid. Porsha is classy and gorgeous damn it. Then is happens.
Kenya asks Porsha to leave and has her escorted out. Ouch. Porsha is embarrassed and insulted, but she leaves. Kandi and Cynthia leave right after her. Really? They have bee out to screw over Kenya from day one and this is just sad. Cynthia gets on the phone to NeNe and gossips about it, which is stupid, so Kenya goes out to talk to them.
Kenya is a loon but I get it. Porsha should have just stuck with the program. Porsha is demanding an apology and I would have smacked her. Bless Kenya for sucking it up. She is trying to save her party and I am embarrassed for all of them. Kenya won’t give Porsha what she wants and I am with her on it. Dear Lord. These women should not be on television.
Kordell is now fighting with Brandon and I am laughing. Kordell is a freak and Porsha will be counting her blessing soon enough that she is rid of him. NeNe arrives as Grace Jones and Phaedra comes as Eartha Kitt as Cat Women. She pulls out the stun gun and I am so glad the season is over so we can stop watching her be a money whore. Enough.
NeNe talks to Kenya and gets her to climb down off the ledge and gets her to apologize to Porsha. NeNe is a superstar swimming in a sea of trolls. Listening to her opinion of everyone’s costume is hilarious. I think it is time for them to shut down production on Real Housewives of Atlanta. We can get our fix of Atlanta craziness from Married to Medicine.
The show ends with no big bang, probably because these women are boring as hell. The reunion however, looks like it will be good. I am happy this slow moving train is done and I am now off to blog the new ladies of Atlanta on Married to Medicine. I will see you back here for the reunion. Make sure you have wine because they may finally keep it real.

This week marked the premier of Bravo’s latest reality show, Married to Medicine. It follows a group of ladies in Atlanta who are either married to doctors, or doctors themselves. It was explosive, mostly because some of the women are certifiable. By certifiable of course I mean they are perfect for reality fame. It will be interesting to see which marriages make it through the reality TV curse. One of the women featured is Kari Wells.
Kari is married to an orthopedic surgeon and I was not particularly kind to her in my blog. I can be a little over the top, which is fun, so I wrote the following: “We meet Kari and I am quite certain she used to be a man. Her accent is annoying, her attitude is pretentious, and she is on my nerves after less than five minutes. She is married to Dr. Duncan who is an Orthopedic Surgeon. They are both very attractive gentlemen.” Harsh, but funny.
Well tonight, much to my surprise, I received a couple of very interesting tweets from Kari Wells on Twitter. This is the exchange:
Kari: I loved your article it was well written and very opinionated. I laughed so much. Now check out www.KariWells.com
Ilana: Kari Wells is FAB! She read my Married to Medicine recap & thought it was funny, not written in stone. Love it when reality stars get it.
Kari: love hard working, intelligent women who are making things happen, especially those with a great sense of humor. Keep it up
If I had a dollar for every time a reality star got my sense of humor and didn’t get mad and think I was mean, I’d have 5 bucks. Well, I would actually now have 6. Kari’s reaching out to me on Twitter won’t change how I write my blog, but it certainly gives me a different perspective. Setting aside the fact that I called her a man, I love this woman’s balls for reaching out. Kari Wells has a new fan in me because she can see the big picture.
Reality television is not brain surgery. It is voyeurism and not at all based in reality. It is fun and mindless television and I love it. I am lucky that I not only get to watch it, but make a living writing about it. When you come across a person who appreciates the opportunity they have been given and know that bloggers help them more than they hurt them, it is a great moment. It does not happen often so it is wonderful when it does.
Bravo to Kari Wells for being fabulous. Married to Medicine is a fun romp and I am hooked after just one episode. I can’t guarantee that I won’t call Kari a transvestite, but I can promise that when I write about her, it will be with a smile on my face and a tremendous amount of respect for her sense of humor and openness. Important to note that it has only been one show and she might flip on me at some point, but I respect her keeping it real.

The women of Beverly Hills are ending with a bang and I am so happy the first half of the reunion will follow the finale. That is how it should always be. It is going to be explosive and I cannot wait to see it all play out. I have my wine ready to go and am going to crank this one out quickly so I can get to my Passover Seder. Buckle up people because here we go!
We are at Lisa’s vow renewal party and all is well. But not really. Brandi is talking with Yolanda, Lisa and Jennifer about Faye telling Brandi that she broke up Adrienne’s family. They bring Marisa over to finish their conversation about Brandi telling Marisa to have a hall pass. This all started with Marisa and I am still unclear why Marisa is on the show at all.
Brandi is admitting what she texted may not have been great, and Lisa does not understand why it all has to go down at her special party. Yolanda is a great friend and not into the women treating each other badly. I like Yolanda. Marisa admits that it was Faye who said that Brandi will sleep with anyone, including a married man. Faye is a stupid and useless whore.
Cut to Husband Killer who is going on and on about how close she is to Linda Thompson, yet David had no idea who she was. Taylor is a liar and Linda does not belong on the show either. Taylor cries for exactly one second, then turns it off and has a drink. Meanwhile Faye is attacking Lisa in her own home. Faye tells Lisa she is manipulated by Brandi and not nice.
I don’t get why Lisa does not simply through the garbage out of her house. Faye is in over her head with Lisa. She is mentally deficient and cannot hold her own against a sharp cookie like Lisa. Yolanda and Brandi are not having it and head over to help Lisa. Lisa tells them what Faye said and Kyle says she does not like to get involved. Kyle is another piece of garbage.
It is now a smack down on Faye and I am really into it. Faye did not see anything, but is spreading lies. Brandi made out in a bathroom. Who cares? Haven’t we all made out in a bathroom at a party? I certainly have. Faye is a backstabbing bitch and she should take a look at her own history of lies and whoredom before she says another word. I can’t stand this bitch.
Faye is wondering why she is being attacked. Really? Faye is bored with the conversation, probably because she doesn’t understand it. Everyone tells her to go and she just keeps going on and on. Kyle steps in and I want to smack her. Kyle is hideous and they are ruining Lisa’s party. Instead of backing up Lisa, she is siding with Faye. Again. Faye needs to go back to hell.
Everyone is telling Kyle that Faye is out of line and Kyle still does not get it. Kyle is a moron and proves it by saying Faye is upset because of Adrienne. Brandi had nothing to do with Adrienne’s marriage ending. It was ending long before Brandi was even on the show. Adrienne is a loser, Kim is a loser, Kyle is a loser, and Brandi is looking better and better every minute.
Kim is now having a nervous breakdown at the party because Kyle is not on her side. Kim needs to get off this show before something really tragic happens to her. In the end Kyle is ruining lives in her pursuit of fame and it is repulsive. If anyone cared about Kim Richards they would tell her to live her life off camera and focus on getting well and staying well.
Lisa is with her daughter who is celebrating her one year anniversary as Lisa celebrates 30. Just as the dust settles with Faye, Adrienne walks in with her ugly hair and horrible dress. Kyle forces herself to cry and Kim is still crying from before, then Adrienne starts crying. I love how they are all wiping their faces when there are no tears. Adrienne makes me itchy.
It is so horrible for these bitches to do this at Lisa’s party. Truly selfish and unkind. Ken is offended Adrienne did not come to talk to them before holding court in a room with everyone. Who cares Adrienne? What a loser she is. I am now glad she is not going to be at the reunion. She is a troll and her 15 minutes are up. She can shove her ugly shoes up her ass.
Marisa and Yolanda are talking and Yolanda calls Adrienne out for having an ulterior motive in coming to the party. Everyone is kissing Adrienne’s ass and I hope they get an eye poked out by the shoe that is jammed up there. Adrienne has the balls to say that Lisa is in the wrong for not approaching her. Is she high? It’s her anniversary party you stupid bitch.
Then, without a word to Lisa or Ken, Adrienne leaves the party. I cannot stand this woman. Kyle needs to be taken down a notch and Yolanda could not be coming off better. I didn’t get her in the beginning, but I have respect for her now. I hope Yolanda comes back and Marisa does not. I also hope Kyle gets a look at herself and sees what a troll she is really is.
Brandi finds Lisa alone in her room and it is heartbreaking. She feels uncomfortable renewing her vows when there is so much ugliness in the house. Brandi tells Lisa to get it together and have her moment. Brandi and Lisa are cute together and I love their friendship. Brandi makes an inappropriate joke, they laugh at the silliness of it all, and go downstairs.
Lisa and Ken are invited up to the flower heart to renew their vows and as soon as the music starts I want to cry. They have the marriage we all want and it is a real accomplishment to celebrate 30 years together. It is really beautiful and I am so very happy for them. Ken promises to continue to obey her and it is charming. Ken reads a speech and I am now crying.
He tells her he always loved her and probably never deserved her. It is really beautiful. They pass Giggy back and forth as they share their speeches and then Kyle makes it all about Adrienne again. Dear Lord. SHUT UP VILE! Lisa speaks as they show her wedding pictures and it is just perfect. True love really does exist and we have now all seen it.
It has been a season of highs and lows, joy and sorrow, angels and bitches. They have all shown their true colors and editing cannot be blamed for what we saw. I can’t wait to see some of them again, and hope I don’t ever see some of the others. We can only hope that Bravo listens to the viewers and brings back only those who keep it real.

I like to watch this show, but must tell you that blogging it is not fun. It drags on forever and I will, for the hundredth time, say that two hours a week is just too much to ask of us. This show should be an hour. Period. I’m going to plow through this week because quite frankly, nothing great happened. It is the same thing over and over again. Here we go.
The show starts with the super annoying Stephen Baldwin giving his winnings to his mother. I cannot stand Stephen, but I love his mom. Her crush on Trump is the highlight of the show. This week’s task is with Chi hair products. I’m bored already. Trump is pushing Arsenio’s new show and how everything Trump is fabulous. I am in love with Jose Cuervo.
Marilu is leading her team and Claudio hers. Lil Jon won a challenge for the same product on his season so they have an advantage. Claudia wants to use beauty queens for the challenge, and Dennis Rodman wants to use homeless people. I love Dennis. Claudia is an airhead, but I think Marilu might be more annoying. I could not care any less about this task.
Watching the bickering is no longer interesting. We know who likes who, who annoys who, and who straight up hates who. It’s a drag to sit through two hours of crap just to see who is kicked off. It’s better to tape it, watch the first 15 minutes, then the last 15 minutes. You can skip over the hour and a half in the middle and not miss a single thing of importance.
I have now been watching the task for over an hour and nothing has happened that is even worth writing about. Stephen being an asshole? Lisa having gas? Gary seeing gas? Marilu stealing Ms. USA from Claudia? Nothing. This show is embarrassing. It’s been nothing but setting up Omarosa and Gary to get fired, and everyone else trying to look smart.
We get a Joan Rivers impersonator, Trace with his guitar, and everyone else throwing each other under the bus. We are then in the boardroom and Claudio loses. Everyone agrees that Lil Jon was a top performer and Omarosa did nothing. Then Claudio says she will bring Lil Jon and Dennis back for possible firing. Everyone is scared of Omarosa.
Watching Omarosa talk her way out of the boardroom is very impressive. She is not playing a game, but conducting business. Gary is harmless, does what he is told, and I’m over people picking on him. It’s old. I am giving this show one more week to entertain me or I am out. I will watch it in 30 minutes during the week and not blog it if they don’t pick up.
Omarosa is saved by fear once again. Claudia is sent home and it would have been her even if Omarosa had been brought back. Trump is losing his edge when Arsenio is more entertaining in the boardroom. One more week is all I am going invest in this show. I am barely hanging on and booze isn’t even helping so next week is their final shot at keeping it real.

After hearing a lot of hype about this show, I was interested in seeing what all the fuss was about. These women are something else. Think of the Real Housewives of Atlanta with an edge. It is the same train wreck, just different chicks driving the train. Some are impressive, some crazy, and one might be a man. I didn’t want to like it. Damn it!
We are in Atlanta and the first woman we meet is Mariah. She is married to a doctor and the string that connects the women together. She is in love with herself and clearly likes to be the center of attention. She is hosting a cocktail party at her home to celebrate her birthday. It’s women only so the party will be used to introduce us to the cast of ladies.
Mariah is black and her husband is Indian. They are living large and have two beautiful kids. We meet Kari and I am quite certain she used to be a man. Her accent is annoying, her attitude is pretentious, and she is on my nerves after less than five minutes. She is married to Dr. Duncan who is an Orthopedic Surgeon. They are both very attractive gentlemen.
Toya is married to an ER doctor. She is very pretty and I like her right away. Then comes Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie. Jackie is all the things Sheree Whitfield wishes she was, and Simone wants to be just like Jackie. Jackie is a grown up and of all the women, I would most want to be friends with her. Simone is a party girl trapped in a doctor’s life.
Quad is a wannabe and she is clearly in need of some mental health care. Interestingly enough, she is married to a Physciatrist. If African American women were hoping this group of ladies would change the stereotypes that the Real Housewives of Atlanta perpetrated, they are going to be disappointed. They may be rich and married up, but they are a mess.
Quad just got married and she is over the top. By over the top of course I mean she is exhausting. Quad and Kari are not friends. Quad and Toya are not friends either. Toya shares that Quad’s wedding was called off, by text. They got into a fight and he sent a text to everyone saying it was cancelled. Ouch. Why is Toya sharing the story and not Quad? Ouch.
Quad is unstable and Toya is a troublemaker. Quad keeps putting her finger in Toya’s face and Toya keeps pushing her hand away. Kari starts talking smack and the entitlement these chicks, who are simply married to doctors, feel is astonishing. They are just men people. Quad is ready to blow and in the end she is the Kenya Moore of the group. Crazy is on.
Toya and Mariah are visiting at Kari’s. Mariah is making excuses for Quad and asks them to be patient with her. Not going to happen. We learn that Dr. Jackie and Dr. Simone used to be partners. Then Simone went out on her own and opened her own office next door. I don’t understand their relationship yet and honestly can’t tell if they even like each other.
Kari is all sexed up for a sex night with her husband. She answers the door half naked and he wants to talk about work and is not into her at all. Kari’s mouth is ridiculous, her ego is out of control, and her accent sounds fake. He bails back to the hospital and she is left on her own. The life of a well-married transvestite can be really hard. Bless her. Him. Her.
Mariah is planning another party, this time for the doctor’s and their wives. I’m on the fence about her. Over with Toya, she is trying to talk her husband into a bigger house. She talks about what they learned in counseling, then says she is “devising a scheme”. What kind of therapist does she have that taught her the thing to do is to manipulate her husband?
Quad explains what happened with her husband before the wedding. They fought, she left, he texted, she called the police, they were both arrested, they got married. Good for them for airing their dirty laundry on their own, but this is not going to be good for them. These are exactly the people who should not be on reality television. I predict failure for this couple.
Quad is unstable, but I like her. She is good television, which means she is going to crash and burn quickly. I am buckled up and will have more wine for next week. Dr. Jackie asks Mariah over to talk about the fighting at her party. Jackie does not want drama, or silliness, or women behaving badly. She is not sure how she will fit in and is right to be concerned.
There is a lot of honey, baby, child happening and it is annoying. It sounds like they are trying a little too hard to sound southern. Mariah is now visiting Quad, who reminds me of the actress Jackee Harry. Mariah is making the rounds, stirring up trouble and at the same time calming things down. I am digging Quad more at the end than at the beginning.
It is time for Mariah’s second party of the episode and fireworks are coming. There is medical talk with the doctors, and then Quad arrives and she lets us know she is ready to take on Toya and Kari. These women are a hot mess and simply pick up where RHOA finishes off, but I am hooked. I will blog them because these chicks are absolutely keeping it real.

I love these women and I love this show, but this week was a bit slow and actually quite boring. I get that they can’t all be winners, but this week was the type of show where you could do your laundry, empty the dishwasher, and take a call, but still not miss anything good. I’m blogging it because I don’t want to miss a week, but the fact is, we could have missed this week.
Love is having headaches from a car accident and the doctor says she may be experiencing irritability or temper loss due to it. Rally? I love me some Love, but she was like that before the car accident. The doctor is cute, Love is cute, it’s entertaining, but not really good television. Love is a powerhouse and this was not a good use of her camera time. Moving on.
Karen is leaving Arizona and heading back to Staten Island. She managed to take care of business, sort things out with Dave, and get things back on track with her daughter. It was a good visit and I saw sides to Karen that I really like. Back at home Drita is meeting with Carla and telling her she needs to work things out with Love. I’m not really a fan of Carla.
Renee is visiting with her friend Jiton who owns a shoe store. Renee is going to start a shoe line with her and is there to get things started on her dream of launching “Mob Candy”. Drita is at her new store with Ang. She is also starting her own business, a makeup store. Good for them that they are using their fame to build better lives for them and their children.
The talk is still about Carla and Love. Enough already. That’s all they talked about last week. They need to figure it out already because it is boring. Drita talks to Lee and hangs up before they can get into a fight. I think Drita and Ang are fabulous. Listening to them talk about how useless their husbands are is hilarious. Women all have their own brain, men share one.
Ramona is planning her wedding and I think it is sad. Bless her for wanting to marry Joe while he is home, but it is hard to watch with her kids there. I get this is their life and they know, but still, not everything needs to be said in front of kids. I hope she gets what she wants and the wedding happens. Ramona is a beautiful girl and her future is both bright and dark.
Karen is visiting with her cousin Rena. I love it when we meet someone new people that are hardcore mob. It is fascinating that mob people live amongst us. It is just like the Soprano’s. These are people who are involved in an unreal life and when we get a glimpse into it I cannot get enough. Hollywood has nothing on the real life stories of these women. They are brave.
Carla is getting a facial from her father-in-law. Joe is there and to see them together is interesting. Carla is in love with Joe and I think she regrets not letting him come home. I think she should take him back and in seeing them together like this, I think she should try to make it work again. I view Carla and Joe in the same way Ang does. She made a mistake.
Love is getting her nails done with Drita and they are talking about Carla again. Love is telling Drita what to tell Carla, and Carla is tells Drita what to tell Love. Poor Drita. She is trying to be friends with everyone and make peace, but she needs to back the hell out of that mess before it gets ugly. No good will come of this until Love and Carla talk to each other.
Renee is rock climbing with AJ and they are cute. She is trying so hard and while I know he loves his mother, he seems to be annoyed with her a lot. I get it, but wish he would lighten up a little. That said, they are very sweet together and I love how she loves him, and how he loves her back. I wish Renee well and hope she stays happy, healthy, and whole.
It’s Love’s birthday and the girls, minus Carla, are out dancing. Ramona and Karen are still bickering. Storm arrives and he is yummy. I hope that works out. Cut to Renee getting a look at some sample shoes from her ideas. She is so excited. While the shoes are not my taste, the idea of screwing in a heel with different colors is fabulous and I would buy those.
Carla is having a wine tasting and Ang and Drita are there. For the hundredth time, we are listening to them talk about Love and Carla again. Enough. Carla denies everything Love says, and Love is certain what she is saying is true. I can’t believe they actually put this week together from nothing. Hopefully next week will get back on track and keep it real.

Well here we are again and much to my surprise, I find myself liking Kenya Moore, more and more. To be clear, I think she is a lunatic, but I also like a bit of crazy, and am a bit of crazy, so I am now firmly on Team Kenya. This week looks good, finally, so let’s get started.
We pick up at Kandi’s party with Kenya storming off in an explosion of drama. Walter is stalking her but I’m not sure why she is so upset about a man she didn’t really date, and who apparently suffers from penile dysfunction, but she is out and feeling very betrayed.
Instead of any of her “friends” checking on her, the hens all sit around cackling about her. Cynthia is on a whole other level of gossiping. She was her friend when she needed her, but would rather trash her for extra camera time now. We jump from the party the divine NeNe.
NeNe looks beautiful and is talking about how great her life is now that her dreams are coming true. NeNe and Gregg talk about their future and NeNe jokes she will move to LA and Gregg can stay behind with their son. They have a great relationship and Nene plays the game like a fiddle.
Sidebar: I want to know what kind of strapless bar she wears because she is always sporting off the shoulder shirts and her girls are securely hoisted. They watch a scene from the New Normal and watching her watch herself is cute. I really wish NeNe had her own reality show.
Cynthia is out with Kenya and they jump right into Kandi’s party. Cynthia is telling Kenya she needs to move on and get over it, while Kenya is trying to say she wants back up from her girlfriends. Kenya admits she was a Drama Queen but Cynthia is the one who won’t let it go.
Kenya takes Cynthia’s advice and the point is that regardless of what the advice was, she just wanted backup. She agrees she needs to move on and let Walter and his limpness go. She won’t do it of course, but bless her for thinking she will. We are off to therapy with Porsha.
I’m not a fan of televised therapy as no good can ever come of it, but here we go. Porsha tells the therapist she wants a baby but her boss is not on the same page. Porsha cries about her miscarriage and says her boss does not understand how hard it was for her to go through.
I feel for Porsha and understand and relate to what she is saying, but Dear Lord, this chick is such so dumb I find it hard to not laugh at her during such a serious conversation. We jump to Kandi who is launching her Mary Kay-ish vibrators. Does anyone else think Todd looks like Kanye West?
Kandi is crying as she talks about the joys of selling sex toys and I am laughing. Kandi says her vibrator sales people are going to run the country. My, my, my. Off to play catch up with NeNe and Cynthia. It is a scripted glass of wine to talk about Nene and Gregg getting back together.
Kandi is talking to Todd while he brushes his teeth with no toothpaste. She says she is having a hard time with her mom and needs to spend time with her. The conversation is distracting because of her hideous nail polish. Todd does not want her Mom to move into their house.
They get to talking and Kandi gets all Kenya when talking about the ring and a wedding. They talk about babies and pre-nups and I’m bored. It is time to shoot some work out videos! Kenya is shooting in Atlanta while Phaedra is shooting in Beverly Hills. It is getting real ugly, real fast.
Kenya says she is a cheerleader and Phaedra is a linebacker. I must agree. Kenya looks pretty and Phaedra looks like her boobs are being suffocated. Kenya’s routine is serious while Phaedra is just silly and they are wearing outfits I do not understand. I’m bored again.
We’re off to dinner with NeNe and Gregg. Gregg is having a serious moment and NeNe is on her phone reading text messages. He professes his love her, tells her she is beautiful, and it is sweet. They are laughing, joking, reminiscing, and being real, then he asks her to marry him again.
Nene says yes and it is lovely. Next week will be the finale and I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to Kenya’s party, but mostly I’m looking forward to it being over. I’m off to watch Married to Medicine to see if these women interest me enough to blog about whether or not they keep it real.
