This might be the worse show on Bravo. I say that only because Courtenay Loves Dallas has not aired yet. This show is complete crap and I was embarrassed for the Tankard family. If I were a member of their congregation I would be pissed the leaders of my church are soentitled and idiotic when it comes to God and faith.
Ben Tankard and his wife Jewel are not even a little appealing. They are obsessed with money and come across as tacky. They run a ministry and their messages about God wanting them to be rich is repulsive. Their adult children are a hot mess. From teenage pregnancy, to troubles with the law, to drug use, these young people are now just fame whores.
I am not sure how these young women think they have a shot in hell of meeting a man after this show. Mr. Tankard says they serve a God who is all about bling, and there is no ghetto in heaven. Dear Lord. They are off to get a new plane and I am about done. This show is a waste of time and they are not doing themselves any favors. Don’t waste your time.
They live in Tennessee, in a mansion with an overflowing toilet, so lets get a little persepective. They are trying to look like a sitcom and that would work if these people were not so ridiculous. I am not going to bother to blog the whole show, and I will not be watching this crapfest again. Bravo should be embarrassed to have paid for this. That is keeping it real.

Every season, in every city, Bravo tells us this is the best year yet when it comes to the housewives. It never is, until now. We are only two weeks in but I think this might really be the best season for Atlanta. It is a great group, they don’t really like each other, use each other for camera time, throw a lot of shade, and are too busy living to worry about lying too much.
I am hooked and I watching with new interest. I’m not sure I would think they were as entertaining if I were an African American woman from Atlanta, but it’s all in good fun and we know all women of color are not like this crazy, self absorbed, fame whoring group. Think what you want about them, there is no denying these chicks are good TV.
We start this week at court where Kenya has won her lawsuit against her landlord, who tried to evict her for not paying rent. Kenya is not surprised to see the paparazzi there, and it is hilarious because it is one guy. Just one. Kenya is not nearly as famous or important as she thinks she is. I hope she thanks God for RHOA because it is the only reason we know who she is.
Over with Porsha, she gets her first $5000 spousal support check and decides she doesn‘t want to use it to pay rent, so she moves in with her mom. Does anyone else think Porsha’s mom looks like Beyonce’s mom? They could be sisters. There is a lot of talk about money with Porsha and that is a shame because she is coming across as a gold digger and I don’t think she is.
Nene is meeting with Kenya, who appears to have forgotten to wash her hair. Nene is my favorite and calls out Kenya for her fake crying. In my opinion Kenya is a liar and that she is still talking about Walter is fascinating. She barely dated him, never slept with him, and she is delusional about their relationship. Nene sets her straight and hopefully we can let Walter go.
Nene points out that it is when you are going to see an ex you should really twirl. Amen. She also points out that with all the dick in Atlanta you don’t need to steal another woman’s man. Amen. I love me some Nene. Kenya does not know the difference between implicating and implying, bless her. She may be pretty, and a businesswoman, but she is also a little dumb.
Cynthia is with her loser of a husband talking about her stomach being bloated. It is brave of her to talk about it and show her tummy on camera, and her honesty is a charming as her husband is not charming. I think Peter is an ass wipe and she needs to dump him already. Cynthia has fibroids and is hoping to have surgery to help with her pain and discomfort.
We jump to the Kandi compound where Cynthia has come over for a scripted visit. Kandi’s hair is not working for me. Don’t get it. Kandi explains to Cynthia that her mom is not supportive of her getting married. I feel bad for Kandi. She just can’t get a break when it comes to love. Porsha joins the fun, as does Phaedra, who says that Porsha has a small brain. Such a bitch.
Phaedra tries so hard to be a southern belle but she is a gutter pig. Know it. They are talking about Kenya being inappropriate with Apollo and throw out a Monica Lewinsky joke. Really? That was a million years ago and to be clear, I would have blown President Clinton too. Sorry. But yes, I would have. Surely there are more recent blow jobs that can be referenced than Lewinsky.
Over at Phaedra’s house, she is living in squalor. Her babies are beautiful. For someone who is so busy, Phaedra certainly finds time to complain. It is all she does. Her marriage is crumbling, we are watching, and no matter how she tries to spin it, it ain’t looking good. The constant passive aggressive digs at each other are uncomfortable to watch. He is going to dump her.
Cynthia and Peter are off to the doctor and Peter is being a schmuck. Cynthia is a perfect candidate for the surgery she needs and is relieved. Bravo for sharing this part of her life as it will help people. Cut to the big meeting, where Nene has gathered the entire group to talk so they can move on with the season. Atlanta is hilarious when they are scripted to hang out.
Kenya is back peddling and it is pathetic. She is denying what she said, trying to spin it, and looks like a moron. This conversation is a bit boring because everyone is talking around it, rather than hit is head on. Porsha is all kinds of ballsy and I love it. Kenya is crazy, Phaedra knows this was as much Apolo’s fault as Kenya’s, then Phaedra jumps to the aids situation. Ouch.
Phaedra reminds Kenya that she accused them of having aids, Kenya denies it, then we see the tape of her saying it. Kenya is not only a delusional bitch, but she is mean spirited and out to cause drama, which works well on a show like this. Week two and she is digging herself a huge hole. Nobody likes Kenya so it will be interesting to see how she plays out during the season.
Porsha is moving into her mom’s house and points out that she and her sister are so close they are like Siamese cats. Not twins, cats. Dear Lord. To be that pretty and dumb is just good TV. Porsha gets her mom to give her the master suite and her mother move into a spare room. Really? I get the mom saying yes to that option, but shame on Porsha for even asking her.
Porsha gets a text message that Cordell is packing up all her crap and delivering it to her mother’s house. I am not buying for one minute that her lawyer is texting this information. He would have called. We are smarter than the writers of this show, which is annoying. After all the money we make for Bravo you’d think they could hire a good writer and not a dumbass.
Kandi is with her mom, who has moved into Kandi’s old house. Kandi’s mom needs to get a job and stop living off her daughter. She starts bagging on Todd and how he is cheating and using Kandi for her money. It would appear that everyone in Kandi’s life is worried about her money and how they will get less of it with Todd in the picture. I feel very sad for Kandi and this drama.
She is supporting a lot of people and it would appear money is more important than Kandi to many of these people. I like Kandi. The stress of her mother and Todd fighting is causing her to cry and make really bad hair choices. Bless her. Kandi’s mom needs to back down. This season is going to be good because the women of Atlanta are really trying to keep it real.

I write two blogs for JewishJournal.com. Both are popular, occasionally harsh in their honesty, and seem to take on a life of their own when it comes to Twitter. It is fascinating that a small group on Twitter are hell bent on lashing out and putting me and my supporters in harms way. By small group of course I mean they all follow each other and while they like to think they are reaching millions, they only read each other so it’s just a dozen women reading and talking to themselves.
The madness started on Twitter years ago when I wrote I liked Jill Zarin. Those who don’t like Jill lost their minds. I was accused of liking her because she was Jewish. (Apparently all Jews like each other.) Who knew? I liked Jill as a character on a TV show, and when I met her in person, I liked her as a woman. She was good TV and regardless of whether I agreed with what she said or did, I enjoyed watching her. My opinion of her did not change when I met her because she was the same in real life.
Jill is opinionated, strong willed, honest, open, not easily intimidated, brash, occasionally harsh, and owns all of it. She is the quintessential New York Jewish broad and I think RHONYC has not been the same since she was unceremoniously fired. I think Bethenny’s hands are all over her departure, but my opinion of why she was fired is irrelevant and old news. What I know for sure is that Jill Zarin is funny, lovely, supportive, and will have my back when I need her.
A handful of trolls on Titter spewed a lot of hate my way when I supported Jill, and when those who support me spoke up against the hate I was getting, they were attacked. It has been a couple of years and things have quieted down, but the same group has now decided to start up with me again over my support of Brandi Glanville. There is always one polarizing housewife on every season in every city, and people are as obsessed with Brandi as they were with Jill.
I think Brandi is good TV. I also think people are quick to judge her. Brandi is honest, open, uncensored and vulnerable. I personally don’t think you can go through the public humiliation of your husband being an asshole, and his new wife being a sociopath, without being a little broken. Just my opinion and one Brandi may not agree with in terms of being broken. Here’s the thing about Brandi, we are friends but I don’t seek her approval on anything I write.
Brandi Glanville is lovely. She is a girl’s girl and she will go to the mattresses for you. She has picked me up when I fell, wiped my tears, made me laugh, been compassionate and kind. I love her. Do I think she has made mistakes? Yes. Do I think we have all faultered and managed to get through it without a camera on us? Yes. She is a great mom, wonderful friend, true beauty, funny as fuck, and a rock star in a sea of reality garbage. My friend gets a lot of Twitter hate.
I am getting ripped apart on Twitter for liking Brandi in the same way I was for liking Jill. I feel bad for my friend when she is trashed but I laugh when people write her to be careful around me because I cannot be trusted. They have written I am employed by the moron that is LeAnn Rimes, and I sell stories about her to the tabloids. It’s all rather entertaining. She responds with an occasional fuck off, but for the most part we just ignore it and move on with our lives.
I write for a living and it makes me happy. I write about reality shows, which make me crazy sometimes, but it is fun. I get paid to do what I love and am great at it. I write blogs, am working on a book, and am truly blessed to be able to support my child and myself by sharing my opinion and my truth. I also understand people’s need to write about me. If I am allowed to share my opinion, people can certainly share their opinions of me in return. It is the hate I struggle with.
To post my address and phone number on Twitter is idiotic. It is always people who hide behind fake accounts and fake pictures. That Twitter allows people to continue harassing strangers is fascinating. Some of these people tweet 24/7. They post pictures of their kids and grandbabies at the same time they spew hate, threats, and ignorance. I’m guessing a lot of kids are being ignored while their delusional caregivers are online pretending to be tough.
People incite hate and are currently going out of their way to harass women who follow both Brandi and me. It is fascinating Twitter has not banned these people, the police have not arrested them, and their bosses have not fired them. All in good time I suppose. They seem to think their identities are a secret, which shows how delusional they are. There are several people on Twitter who have begun a hate campaign and it would be funny if it were not so pathetic.
These crazy people scare me on occasion, but mostly it makes me sad. By sad of course I mean there is a little sadness amongst all the laughing. Brandi certainly does not care, Jill rolls her eyes that people are so nuts, but we are women and so there are emotions, mostly anger, because those who judge most harshly, are those who don’t know us. I understand the right to judge, and to a certain extent my job requires me to be judgmental, but to judge is not to hate.
Twitter is a hateful place and the lack of accountability from Twitter is unbelievable. I have written countless complaints, as has my employer, but the people who are dangerous are not dealt with. You get an email from Twitter assuring you it is being handled, but it never is. People are being hurt and Twitter does not step it. It’s not rocket science and if they wanted to help, they could. They are more focused on making money than the integrity of their original vision.
One could argue my writing about these insignificant losers is a waste of my time, but the way I see it, I receive a lot of love and support from people on Twitter and for me to say nothing when they are being attacked is unacceptable. I have their backs as they have mine. If these morons want to have a go at someone for liking Jill and Brandi, or simply have an issue with me, come after me and leave the people who support me alone. Let innocent people enjoy Twitter.
By come after me of course I mean fuck off already. Thousands of people have died in the typhoon that hit the Philippines, people are starving to death, women are being killed, raped, and tortured at this very moment just because they are women. You are operating as if what you say matters when in truth it does not. Don’t like my blog? Don’t read. Don’t like me? Don’t follow. Get a little perspective and grow up. Imagine if someone was doing to you what you do to others.
I have survived greater things than attacks on Twitter, and this too shall pass. To those who enjoy my work, thank you. I love you for speaking up, but save yourselves and do not engage with hate. To Jill Zarin, I ain’t got nothing but love for you, and to Brandi, keep doing what you do. To those who are operating from an evil place, get some clarity. Time for you to shut up and back off. When it comes to defending myself and my friends I will fight back and keep it real.

How excited are we that these ladies are back?!?!? It is going to be a great season because these women know how to deliver, and when they don’t, we always Brandi Glanville to entertain us. It is going to be catty, mean, funny, dark, eye rolling, oh no she didn’t, what a bitch fun and I for one am excited. We all have our favorites and it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Buckle up people because we’ve got two new ladies and it is on. Here we go!
To clarify, I am friends with Brandi Glanville, and our friendship does not change how I write my blog. I will comment on her in the same way I do with all the women. Additionally, I met Kim Richards recently and I adore her. She is kind, gentle, fragile, and lovely. I also met Yolanda Foster, who is gorgeous and great, but I have a job to do and I will write my recaps as only I can. It will be honest, and it may get harsh, but it will fabulous and real.
We start with Yolanda who is overseeing the modeling career of her daughter Gigi. They are both gorgeous and when Yolanda says that Gigi is a much better version of her, I think it is lovely. We saw a harsher side of her parenting last year, and she is still pushing her, but she is soft and cute now. She touches briefly on her being ill with Lymes Disease and it will be sad to see how that all plays out for her this season.
We jump to Brandi who is getting a new house with the help of her realtor/boyfriend JR. Brandi met JR at Kyle’s white party last year and I am not a fan of mixing business with pleasure so that relationship might come back to bite her in the ass. He is cute, and she is balls to the wall. Brandi lets us know they have a lot of sex, we know he has met her kids, and we know that he is a grown man living in an apartment. The house is great.
Off to Lisa, she is rehearsing for Dancing With The Stars with her partner Gleb, who is gorgeous. Lisa looks great but I hope we don’t have an entire season of her dancing. It wasn’t great on DWTS so we don’t need to see it all again. Time for Kyle. Ugh. She is my least favorite housewife. I’m not sure why, but she bugs me. Maybe it is because she is an evil and conniving bitch who goes out of her way to hurt her sister? Maybe.
She is at her store doing a shameless plug, while featuring a hideous pink jacket. The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce comes by to get her to join and she has no clue what the chamber is or what it does. Bless her. She’s dumb. Kyle points out that she was born in Beverly Hills, which she was not. She was born in Hollywood. Kyle is still at odds with Lisa and wants to patch things up. Translation: she wants more camera time.
Brandi is out shopping with Yolanda for her new house. She is shopping with someone much richer than her, which is not going to be fun. She also points out that she got rid of all the furniture she had while she was married to Eddie Cibrian. By Eddie Cibrian of course I mean the Douchelord who is now married to a skanky whore. Cut to Kyle, Lisa has come over. The scripted stuff bores me. As if Kyle would have Lisa’s SUR cater her Chamber of Commerce party. Hilarious. This is going to be bad. Whoo Hoo!
Kyle says she is over Yolanda because she is a liar and she does not do liars. Really? Kyle lied about stealing her sister’s house, and her husband cheating, so it is a little pathetic to call out lying. We jump back and forth to Yolanda and Brandi, and Yolanda is not interested in attending Kyle’s party. I hate when they go back and forth between two different conversations. Lisa talks about the tabloids and calls Kyle out for talking smack.
Kyle insists she did not say anything about Lisa. Right. She also asks about Mauricio cheating, who happens to conveniently walk in. Lisa makes a joke, Kyle gets pissed, and I am distracted by the truly ugly necklace Kyle is wearing. Over to Kim, she is hanging out with her dog Kingsley and it is hilarious. He is a giant and going to be a superstar. Kim’s kids are all growing up and leaving home. I feel for her and want her dog.
Back at Kyle’s, the SUR staff is there to set up for the party. They are dirty. I get that they are doing a RHOBH/Vanderpump Rules crossover, but I don’t care about the young, dirty people so this is a bit of a drag. Lisa and Ken arrive and great everyone, including Schaena. Really? This girl is an idiot and famous for being an idiot, so why is she here? I’m not a fan. I am not going to watch or blog about Vanderpump Rules. Yuck.
Kyle says it is an exciting night for her because she is a businesswoman and being in the Chamber of Commerce, which she does not understand, is a big deal. Oy vey. Kyle thinks Lisa is intimidated by Yolanda. Or maybe Lisa doesn’t give a shit and Kyle is pissed that Lisa won’t pick a side? Kyle is a liar, and a mean girl, and a baby. Plus her dress is too small for her. Kim arrives along with new chick Carlton and her husband David.
Brandi and Yolanda arrive and I wonder why the housewives were invited at all. It is a business party and only Lisa has a business in Beverly Hills. Stupid. The second new girl Joyce and her husband Michael arrive. Wow. She is really pretty and Mauricio is totally checking her out. Creepy. Carlton’s kids are named Cross, Destiny, and Mystery, which seems to be fascinating to everyone. Beautiful names, but who cares?
Kyle is talking smack about Lisa to Joyce and it is gross. Kyle is a hag. Truly. Lisa is talking to Kyle and it is sad because Lisa needs to walk away from that trash. Cut to Brandi and Kim in the kitchen and Schaena, the whore, comes in and Brandi talks nicely to her, which is weird. I would not talk to her. She talks about her having a wonky tooth and it is hilarious. Schaena starts crying and I am laughing my ass off. Schaena is a moron.
The transition is happening from RHOBH to Vanderpump Rules and I am out. These people make no sense to me. They are childish and just not cute. I mean physically they are super cute, but in terms of their personalities and behavior, they are not cute. I am done. The housewives of Beverly Hills are perfect TV. We will love them, hate them, feel invested, and not care. They are reality TV gold I will be watching, blogging, and keeping it real.

I have not blogged the entire season because I was bored a lot of the time. These chicks are sloppy and not entertaining. I’ve watched, usually while doing something else, and drinking as I marvel at the insane amount of plastic surgery. It is finally over and the big finale is all about the wedding of sexless and beautiful Joanna and Romain.
It has been a season of crying, yelling, mean girls. None of them like each other and are not good enough actresses to pull the friendships off. Lisa is allowing us to watch her marriage crumble, Joanna is sharing that she has no sex, Lea is a liar jealous of the younger women, Alexia is using her kids unfortunate situations as a storyline, and Adriana is just odd and a moron.
The ladies are in a car driving from Las Vegas to San Diego because they got so drunk and out of control at the bachelorette party that they missed their flight. Lisa is vomiting, Joanna is pissed, and after five minutes in I’m not sure I will make it through the whole thing. Luckily it is the last one so I will drop a straw in my bottle of wine and hope for the best. Cheers!
They go back to the morning they were to leave and I cannot believe how much these chicks packed for 2 nights away. I also don’t get why they put things in drawers if they were only staying in Vegas overnight. Joanna is stressed she will miss her wedding and Romain will kill her. He can;t be bothered to bang her so he’s not going to waste his time killing her.
Cut to Romain who is with Joanna’s mother getting ready for the rehearsal dinner she is going to miss. He calls her and is pissed, understandably, and it just feels like scripted crap. The Bravo crew is not letting them miss their flight. This is stupid. Lea is not trusting Adriana, but Adriana thinks they are friends again. How old are these hags? It’s very high school.
The girls are still driving as Joanna’s sister Marta arrives to the rehearsal dinner. Marta and Romain don’t like each other. Awkward. Maybe they slept together? The girls arrive in San Diego and rush into the hotel to get ready. I’m guessing they were always going to drive. The awkwardness is also between Joanna and Marta and that is sad because they were close.
The rehearsal starts and it is sweet. Romain’s brother is smoking hot. That family has really good genes. The girls are all kissing and being friends, even though the night before they were calling each other whores and bitches. Charming. Alexia and Lisa are missing their husbands. Joanna’s divorced parents are there and I think that is lovely. It’s a sweet moment.
It is odd to me that there is no mention of Marisol. Not a word. Adriana is going to use the rehearsal dinner as an opportunity to apologize to Joanna’s mother for calling out her daughter as a slut. Nice timing. Joanna’s mother is gracious and lovely. Joanna makes sure there is nothing bad going on and the look of love Joanna gives her mother is very touching.
Joanna and Marta have a moment together and it is a shame it is on camera. It should have been private. Marta says she accepts Romain into the family, but she is clearly not really. Weird dynamic and we are not being told the whole story. Cut to Lisa, she got news from Lenny and wants to share it with Lea. She shares they have chosen a surrogate to carry their child.
Lisa is crying and says that Lenny just wants to get it done, but she wants to carry her own baby. It is heartbreaking. I feel for her on a lot of levels. Sad that she is struggling, sad that he is pressuring her, and hopeful that she can move on and enjoy the fact that she will be a mom and the knowledge that all babies are precious, no matter how they come to us.
It’s wedding time and Joanna wakes up on her wedding day in bed with her mom, which made me cry! I slept with my mom the night before my wedding and I treasure that memory. That was worth watching the show for. Lea has invited all the ladies to the spa for a facial. Adriana is the only one to show and now Lea is stuck with her because that is how Bravo wrote it.
Adriana tells Lea tshe now does not believe that Lea told the tabloids about her marriage. She expects Lea to accept her apology and all will go back to normal, but Lea is not having it. She says Adriana is evil to the core and she is over her. Adriana cries, the only housewife with real tears, and Lea is a hardened bitch, which makes me think she feels guilty.
Lea says she does not care if she ever sees her again. Ouch. Blah, blah, blah. Marta and Joanna are having their makeup done and their mom comes and immediately starts crying, which makes me cry too. Why am I crying? It’s the wine! Sidebar: the reunion next week is going to be freaking awesome and the only time these women will actually be honest and open.
Alexia’s son Peter surprises her by coming to the wedding. I feel bad for the struggles she has gone through with her children, however I think it is sad that she shares all their troubles on the show. Not cool if you ask me. Lea’s son has also come for the wedding. Her husband is probably in court getting a killer or rapist off. I am sickened by the cases Roy Black takes on.
The wedding party walks the aisle and they are a beautiful and plastic looking group. Joanna looks stunning. Her hair extensions are perfect, she is crying, and I think the dress is interesting. Romain cries and cannot read the vows he wrote so the minister reads them for him. Cute, but he should have read them himself. Joanna reads hers with no problem. Sweet.
I do not doubt that they love each other, but without sex, she is marrying her brother. God bless them. The reception is lovely and everyone is crying. It’s over. Thank God. Did I miss something about Marisol? I haven’t paid close attention but she was there in the beginning of the season. The best thing about this show will be the reunion where they have to keep it real.

I don’t find these women appealing, can’t see myself being friends with any of them, and find it fascinating that they are still on TV. Even the chicks of DC were more interesting than this lot, and they were not interesting at all. They don’t like each other, are out to actually hurt each other, and they behave like spoiled and entitled bitches. This is a bunch mean girls.
Joanna is having a bachelorette party in Las Vegas and everyone is going but Marisol. That she invited Adriana is disturbing and even if Bravo insisted, I would have put my foot down and refused. Lisa is packing for the trip when her husband gets home. Her marriage is crumbling and we are getting affront row seat. It is uncomfortable to watch and feels dirty.
Her husband seems annoyed with her, and she is playing passive aggressive games. She is convinced he will leave her if she doesn’t have a baby, and he is willing to try anything to have a baby. This marriage is struggling with miscommunication and assumptions. We are off to Vegas and I wonder why they’re not flying first class.
They arrive at the room and the fight for the best room is on. They are only there for one night so the fight over rooms is even more ridiculous. How old are these bitches? Why did Marisol not come? Why are we watching? Lisa is an idiot. By Lisa of course I mean all of these women are idiots. This show is making them famous for being plastic airheads. Barbie is smarter.
They are in bathing suits and off to the pool. Lea’s jewelry for the pool is hideous, and the heals to go to a pool are laughable. Lea dances with a little person, convinced he is hitting on her. Dear Lord. The girls go back to the room and are literally falling all over each other drunk. It is embarrassing. They are now topless in their private pool and I am bored.
Why is Adriana wearing underwear and not a bathing suit bottom? Lea is pissed off that Adriana is getting along with everyone, and I am pouring another glass of wine. Lea’s voice I like nails on a chalkboard. Everyone is now getting dressed up for dinner. Alexia’s hair color is weird and these chicks wear more makeup than the Kardashian sisters.
The girls are now gambling. With all the money Lea has you’d think she would invest in a bra. Lisa is hammered and belligerent. I am embarrassed for her husband that this is how she is representing herself and the issues in their marriage. They re on a party buss, with male strippers, and I am laughing at how pathetic this lot of washed us whore is. Too harsh?
The ladies are all jumping on he striper pole and Lea is trying to act like she is a lady, meanwhile she is drinking champagne out of the bottle and telling the strippers she hopes her son grows up to be just like them. Classy. The girls are sloppy and now dancing at a club. Back in the bus Lisa is calling Joanna a whore and it is going down hill quickly.
Joanna responds to being called a whore by saying she did not marry for money like Lisa. Lisa insists it was a joke, Lea is stirring the pot, and Joanna the regular drunk is sober and level headed. The show ends with in a drunken mess and I am reminded why I don’t normally blog this crap fest. These chicks are not worth my time, and that is keeping it real.

NeNe, Kandi, Cynthia, Porsha, Phaedra, and Marlo are back and it is going to be good. By good of course I mean they will drive us to drink. I’m not an African American, but if I were I am certain I would find these women mortifying. They may not be a good representation of what it means to be a powerful black woman, but they are good TV. We start off with Nene who is opening up wedding presents with Gregg.
Some people thought it odd that a rich bitch like Nene would register for gifts, but why not? She got married and I like that she registered for things she wanted. She is talking about Porsha and saying that her husband, what’s his name, was a douchebag in how he ended their marriage. Bravo. I thin he is a loser and good for Porsha that she is back with her head held high. We are now with Porsha who is starting over.
She is preparing for her divorce deposition. She is going to war and not afraid to air her dirty laundry. Rock on sister. Porsha found out about her divorce on Twitter. Dear Lord. Interesting that her lawyer is the same as Nene. I hope she takes the loser to the cleaner. She cries when talking to the lawyer and I really feel for her. She was trying to have a baby and then got completely blindsided. Such a bastard.
Porsha is gorgeous. So is Cynthia, who we are with now. Her boob job looks fabulous and I am a little surprised that she is still married to Peter. I didn’t think they would make it. She is moving her school’s location to a building Peter bought. By bought, of course I mean he didn’t tell her he was buying it. Peter is shady and not to be trusted. Ms. Kenya Moore pays Cynthia a visit. Kenya is all kinds of good crazy.
Cynthia says they have not spoken for months, so you have got to love the scripted visit for the cameras. Kenya looks good. Cynthia is having a party for her new space and invites Kenya, who is not talking to any of the other women. Kenya talks about her eviction and says the landlord was a liar and tried to discredit her. None of them like each other and it is the forced friendships of these women that are interesting.
Cynthia tells Kenya she has burned bridges and needs to fix things with the group. We are then talking about Walter again. For the love of God. Who cares about Walter? I do think it was shady of NeNe to invite Walter to her wedding. It was not necessary and Kenya’s feelings should have trumped that invitation. Kenya is going to try to come to the event. Translation: Bravo is going to pay Kenya to attend Cynthia’s party.
Over with Phaedra, she has had another baby. A little boy named Dylan. He is beautiful. Phaedra and Apollo are moving into a new house, which Phaedra wants to us to know is in the best neighborhood in the south. She is so pretentious. I like Apollo, and his chest. Baby Ayden is now 3 and absolutely perfect. I love that kid. I think it is hilarious that the southern belle is living in squalor. Her home is a freaking mess.
We are now with Kandi, who is settled in her new house and planning her wedding to Todd, the Kanye West lookalike. She is name-dropping right from the get go. Bless her. Kandi looks good, but I’m not a fan of the hair. Kandi clarifies that she is not a sugar momma, and says she don’t do scrubs. Funniest line ever. Kandi’s family is not into her getting married and it is sad. He deserves an easier road this time around.
Kandi’s mom thinks Todd has ulterior motives. Whatever. Kandi has money, get a pre-nup and call it a day. Todd wants to address it and move on, but Kandi is not too excited about dealing with is. They are talking about Cordell and Porsha. That will be a topic of conversation for the entire season. It will be interesting to see if Kandi ever gets married. We now jump back to Porsha, who is having lunch with NeNe.
NeNe says Kenya did not respond or come to the wedding. Kenya says it was because Walter was there, and the crazy has begun. NeNe points out that Porsha is still wearing her wedding ring. Porsha is not ready to take her ring off and I think that is both sweet and sad. Important to note that Nene looks amazing. These women are working it. Porsha wants to reconcile and my heart hurts for how naïve and stupid she is.
Porsha is with her mom and sister talking about her deposition with Cordell. He was honest in his answers, but has no explanation or reason as to why he filed for divorce. She is crying and I feel for her. It is crushing and I feel her pain. She is young and beautiful and to have the rug pulled out from under her is shocking. Her pain is palpable. She wanted to serve God through her marriage vows and the loss is great.
Porsha’s mom says that Cordell came to visit Porsha in the hospital only one time when she suffered a miscarriage. She is better off without him and while that is impossible for her see, she will get clarity one day. Cordell is not the man for her. He is not a real man. Cordell is a coward and now we all know exactly how much of an asshole he is. Porsha clarifies that her tears are not her husband, but for the loss of her marriage.
Time for Cynthia’s party. It is raining and apparently Apollo did not get the memo that everyone was supposed to wear white. Kenya arrives and it is going to go down. Kenya hugs Cynthia and Kandi, then jumps right into divorce talk with Porsha. They have no relationship and hat is how she opens up talks? Oy vey. Phaedra is also ignoring Kenya. NeNe and Kenya get in front of each other and Kenya starts dumping on NeNe.
Kenya says nobody reached out to her during the eviction, and NeNe points out Kenya never reached out to her during her wedding. Kenya wants to know if NeNe invited Walter and compares Cordell to Walter. Kenya never had a real relationship with Walter and she needs to move on. NeNe and Kenya are now going at it. Kenya will not stop talking, Cynthia is mortified, and Nene is taking charge. Nothing changes.
Atlanta is back. The women have never looked better which makes their crazy even more fascinating. They look like ladies but can't quite seem to act like ladies. Bless them. It is going to be a wild season with a lot of drama. I will keep my liquor cabinet stocked because I am guessing it is going to take a lot of booze to make it through a season with these women, even if they do manage to keep it real.

When it comes to Ms. Rimes, every week brings a fresh pile of hot and steamy crazy. It simply never stops. She is out of control and we are watching her spin in the same way we watched Anna Nicole Smith and Amanda Bynes. She has killed her career and is now hell bent on getting everyone to dislike her. She is, in my opinion, mentally unstable, and like all train wrecks, impossible to look away from.
I write about Ms. Rimes a lot and what is truly fascinating is there are very few people who write about her madness. Many write about how great she is, what a wonderful singer she is, how happily married she is, how she stands up against bullying, and is becoming the face of step-mothers everywhere. I am quite certain those people are getting paid by LeAnn, or high, because to think any of those things is totally insane.
LeAnn Rimes is not a nice person. She is no longer as good of a singer as she used to be, is married to a man who seems to be physically repelled by her, bullies on an epic scale, and is everything that a step-mother should not be. More people read my blog on a daily basis than bought her last record, and her upcoming TV show will be garbage. Even with all this, she still goes out of her way to show how unstable she is.
Halloween marked a whole new batch of crazy. From her tweets, to her costume, to her inappropriate and passive aggressive digs at her husband’s ex-wife, she continues to dig a whole for herself that will soon be impossible to get out of. She will lose her husband in the same way she got him, and that will happen as soon as the money runs out, or she decides to stop paying off his whores to keep quiet. Bless her heart.
On Halloween the mother of LeAnn’s stepchildren tweeted how sad she was to not have her kids for Halloween. LeAnn responded by tweeting she was going to the kid’s school to hang out and see them all dressed up. Sociopathic. She tweeted nonstop about her family, her kids, her home being filed with love and laughter. LeAnn Rimes is a horrible woman and Karma is going to have a field day on her soon. I hope the paps catch it on film.
LeAnn wrote of being in hair and makeup for hours getting ready for Halloween. When the picture was finally tweeted, it was hilarious. She claimed to be Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, but Eddie and LeAnn didn’t look anything like them. I mean nothing like them. Not even a little bit. Important to note Eddie’s first wife wrote of her love of Kenny Rogers, then LeAnn has her husband dress as Kenny? Sociopathic.
During her Halloween party she posted another picture as she did a costume change. I guess Kenny was getting pissed off with her having to hang on him all night, so she changed into some kind of unicorn outfit. Poor girl. She is a hot mess, and by the time she was a unicorn, she was also drunk. LeAnn likes to tweet when she is hammered, then delete the tweets the next day. Screen shots are the best part of Twitter.
With Halloween over, and the mother of LeAnn’s stepchildren out of town on business, LeAnn called her paid paparazzi to meet her at the kid’s soccer game so she could pretend to a mommy. She forced hugs, kisses, and smiles. Kids are loving, and they will love who their dad loves, but her taking those pictures was a deliberate attempt to cause pain to the mother. She is relentless, spiteful, and really stupid.
LeAnn Tweeted about soccer, the kids, and her happy marriage all weekend. She continues to tweet her husband’s twitter even though he has not tweeted in over a year. She tweets anything nice someone writes about her, tweets her husband’s claims they are not getting separated in an interview, and seems to not understand that people follow her for a laugh, not because of any great interest in her or her nonexistent career.
LeAnn pisses me off. I find her offensive as a woman, mother, and human being. She is selfish, hurtful, ignorant, and uses her platform, no matter how small it is becoming, to hurt people. She is married to a cheater, a cheater herself, and while I believe in true love and have no judgment of how it can be found, the only person LeAnn loves is LeAnn. She needs a kick in the ass. Maybe then she’ll start keeping it real.
