  • Real Housewives of Atlanta Finally Wraps It Up

    By Ilana Angel

    April 4, 2016 | 9:36 pm

    Typos are generously provided by boredom.

    I have never wanted a season to end as badly as this one. I was bored, didn’t think the storylines were interesting, and was forced to wait way too long to get a glimpse of Nene. I watched all three parts of the reunion, but honestly...

    Typos are generously sponsored by Jose Cuervo.

    I am so ready for this show to be done. This has been a drawn out and painfully boring season. We were teased with the return of Nene, only to have her for only few quick minutes. After sticking with the show for weeks of nothing, we...

    I was away last week and didn’t have the opportunity to blog this crap fest, so I’m going to do a double blog tonight. I will bullet point week 7 and do my regular style for week 8. Important to note that his show is getting tired...

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta are Back

    By Ilana Angel

    November 9, 2014 | 7:42 pm

    Typos are generously brought to you by Merlot.

    A lot has happened since they ended the last season and the truth is that we wait because we are addicted, not because it is compelling or even watchable television. They are an interesting group however, and when it comes to the...

  • The Real Dirty Housewives of Atlanta

    By Ilana Angel

    January 27, 2014 | 6:59 am

    Dear Lord. These women are a mess and have opted to humiliate themselves is grand ways this week. It is embarrassing, shameful, laughable, and truly fascinating how these chicks behave in front of the world to see. This week's episode comes on the heels of Phaedra’s husband Apollo...

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap – Week 1

    By Ilana Angel

    November 3, 2013 | 5:35 pm

    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...

  • RHOA is Back & NeNe is the Reason to Watch

    By Ilana Angel

    November 4, 2012 | 7:27 pm

    I love the women of Atlanta and this show is good television.  I watch them with fascination, curiosity, and fear.  Some of them intimidate the crap out of me, and others are women I want to be best friends with.  As the season progresses you will know who is who.  By the season of...

  • Jordan Farmar waived by Hawks, to play in Turkey

    Jordan Farmar was waived by the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and reportedly will continue his professional basketball career in Turkey.

  • Messianic Jewish groups claim rapid growth

    June 12, 2012 | 12:13 pm

    About 200 congregants filled the stain glassed-windowed sanctuary on a Shabbat morning this spring, praying, singing and welcoming new members. Among the newly welcomed members was a young Israeli man, named Yoav. Not really extraordinary news, except Congregation Beth Hallel in a...

  • My Final Real Housewives of Atlanta Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    February 19, 2012 | 10:16 pm

    I tried to recap tonight’s episode from Africa and in the end just could not do it.  These chicks are shallow, petty, pathetic, jealous, bitchy and catty.  I could not get through it.  I am over these women and will no longer write about it.  I am checking out of Atlanta for good. ...

  • Real Housewives of Atlanta Ruin Africa Week 2

    By Ilana Angel

    February 13, 2012 | 9:09 am

    These episodes in Africa have proven two things to the world.  One: Africa is glorious and everyone should visit if they are given the opportunity, and two: these women are embarrassing and should not be allowed to travel.  If I lived in Atlanta I would be mortified that these women...

  • Real Housewives of Atlanta RECAP

    By Ilana Angel

    January 11, 2012 | 9:30 am

    I’m a little late with this recap because there was so much reality television to talk about I fell behind, but also because this week in Atlanta was a little boring and I couldn’t quite get into the racap.  There are weeks when the entire hour is jam packed with good stuff, and...

  • Real Housewives of Atlanta: From Babies to Drugs

    By Ilana Angel

    December 12, 2011 | 9:05 am

    These chicks are fun to watch but this week was odd.  The story flow was a little off and the whole Kim baby delivery seemed weird.  She is void of any real emotion and is so focused on the cameras that she has lost her authentic vibe.  Well she never had an authentic vibe so it’s...

  • RHOA: Night of the Douchelord

    By Ilana Angel

    December 5, 2011 | 12:01 am

    This week starts out with Phaedra going to see Kandi at her shop.  She brings a cake as a peace offering for subjecting her Mamma to Ridickulous. Phaedra looks very beautiful, and her cake looks divine.  Phaedra is a Southern belle with a wild streak.  She is a little obsessed with...

  • Real Housewives of Atlanta:  Kandi is Not So Sweet

    By Ilana Angel

    November 20, 2011 | 9:12 pm

    We start off this week with Sheree and her new house.  How in the world does this woman have enough money to build a “chateau” in a fancy shmancy neighborhood?  Furthermore, how drunk does she think we all are that we believe she was born anywhere near 1975?  She is a loon, and...

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta:  Watch Out Heffer!

    By Ilana Angel

    November 7, 2011 | 9:35 am

    The ladies of Atlanta are back and if you base the upcoming 4th season on the premiere episode, it’s going to be good!  Before I started watching I checked out the word “heffer” in the Urban Dictionary. It is listed as meaning: a fat bitch, or conceited girl with a bad...

  • The ADL and America’s worst case of anti-Semitism

    From Nov. 13-15, the Anti-Defamation League will hold its annual conference in Los Angeles. In the essay below, author Steve Oney recalls the historic event that galvanized the organization: the Leo Frank case.

    The elements could hardly have been more volatile. On Confederate...
