Real Housewives of Atlanta:Season 7 Reunion Part 3

Full size image

Season seven is finally come to a close, gosh!

Last night we begin where part 2 ended.    Firtingate!

Nene denying that she has EVER flirted with Peter,Lu Peter or Patricia.  Who agrees with Nene.  Now we know what we saw but Patrica was the gentleman, he said while he and Nene get along nothing ever happened between them.  Good move.   Then Peter takes it all away.  “if I’m gonna cheat on my wife, I’m gonna hit something big.”   Okay Everybody!


Kandi Burress and her husband Todd.  We get a look back at their sometimes turbulent first year together.  Kandi admits that maybe she’s been a little too open about their personal struggles on the show, but that’s just the type of person she is and when Andy asks her when was the last time they had sex. Kandi says, “Two days Ago”    Andy asked her did she get her boobs done?  “Let’s be clear: I’ve gotten fatter over the last couple years,” Kandi says. “My boobs, my thighs, my face, my arms– everything has gotten bigger.”   (pencils down)

Oh wait……..Mr Leakes had a comments about da boobs “Got Milk?”

Confessional, the Friendship Killer

Its one thing to learn via a third party,someone said something negative about you. Its another seeing and hearing your friend say something about you on TV or social media.   It would take a very strong person to look past the video.   The confessionals are taped later and edited into the episode.

That’s why a relationship that appears to be healed on camera, remains an issue during the reunion.  By the time the reunion airs, everyone has seen and heard what was said in the confessional .

A flash rewind then on to Nene’s Meltdown

Yes Claudia Jordan was there, sitting on the same spot on the sofa.  Her big contribution (they should have renew her contract after) Puerto Read Co, as she slayed the mighty Leakes.   (You know she is # 1 on Nene’s short list to be fired!) We review the beef between Nene and Cynthia. Kenya and Phaedra (see the Confessional Section)

Nene Breaks 

If there is one true romance, its is Gregg and Nene Leaks.  He is her rock and the love of her life.  He is the only one who can shift her and last night he gave us insight on his wife.

Andy asked Gregg,what really happened to Nene as a child. Gregg said Nene and one of her brothers were sent to Athens to be raised by her aunt. Her mom kept the other three kids. Nene wondered why she was abandoned and that pain has never been resolved.

Talking about her mother was too much, she walked off camera with Mr Jeff her buds and Cynthia.

Dr. Jeff’s diagnosis about the pain: “Pain is power but it begins to break you down.” Her breakdown was a breakthrough, Cohen said, and the fact the women were largely empathetic should make NeNe feel both less defensive and so over-the-top boastful around them. “I just think I’ve been misunderstood,” Nene said. “It’s really hard to talk about my mom or my dad. It’s just hard. Kinda of like, leave them in the past, don’t look back.”

Cynthia said she respected Nene for her vulnerability and Nene accepted her compliment. Andy asked why Nene was so defensive to Dr. Jeff.

The therapist figured Nene never felt like she was ever given the respect due for her hard work and success. She instead has felt betrayed by people on the show in the past, causing her abandonment issues to bubble up. He said these women want to respect her.

“You are really showing strength by being vulnerable,” Kenya said.  This I find interesting as Kenya and Nene have strong abandonment issues from their mothers.

Kandi Keepin it Real

I know Kandi gonna take heat, but I love her realness.  When everyone was giving Nene a hug.  Kandi wasn’t feeling it.  As if to say, look I am for Nene, but I am not gonna be phony and show this woman love when there isn’t love between us.

Next Season 8

The ratings for RHOA is lower than season 6.  For m,e it was the storylines and Nene.  I am a Nene fan. but her shtick has gotten old and I seem to enjoy the episodes without her.  Bring everyone else back accept Demetria.  If Kenya or  Pheadra uses the word whore in a sentence they should be forced to wear clothes from Wal Mart for the rest of the season or shot.  Perhaps Brandi Glanville from RHOBH and Heather Thompson the Jewish Sista  from RHONY should join the Atlanta team

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
