Image result for the real housewives of atlanta season 9 episode 14

This is de episode   The rumors about who is skinny dipping in the lady pond comes full circle and someone falls hard out of the closet. 

One more day in the Woods

The Lesbian conservation swirls. Kandi is still pissed and is done. DEE OH N E!   She doesn’t want to travel with the ladies and arranges he own ride to the ATL.   When Kandi tells Cynthia she’s leaving .Cynthia’s response was like.  I’m done with all the drama . BYE Girl.

The next day the ladies climb into bus and please believe Sheree isn’t done and Phaedra doesn’t have a glass in her mouth to prevent her from talking.  Sheree wanted clarity and Phaedra had a bout of “flash amnesia ”  she didn’t remember anything. Any conversation about Kandi and her lesbianism.Porsha tried to clean her role up, but no one on the bus was buying dat gov-mint cheese

At the lake house, Cynthia traumatized her daughter Noelle about Lesbians. 

The Kenya Surprise.

Your girl is turning 50 and getting a divorce. So you get your girl , a card, a cup cake, a night with the girls.  Kenya, wants to give Cynthia something unique and she does with a lil shade. She takes Cynthia for a laser vaginal rejuvenation.  Of course Kenya doesn’t need one because she’s younger and her VaJJ doesn’t get much use.  (Kenya is much younger at 46 or 47)  As a bonus, we get the see some of the procedure.  Bravo cuts to flowers and butterflies to distract us.

Its official, Apollo is her ex

Phaedra rolls up to her lawyers office in that black benz which is on fire.    The office conference room  has a giant sign(KAPLAN FAMILY LAW) so fans in Atlanta know where to go.  Her lawyer Ronnie tells her the judge finalized her divorce.  However SHE would have to tell Apollo they are finished.   Now Apollo can tell his girlfriend he’s free.

 

Daddy Dearest Momiger and Porsha’s 1.4 new house

I’ve never understood why a deadbeat daddy would want to be on TV.   Once again, after demanding that he be allowed to see his daughter Russell “Bloc” Spencer was once again a no show. Riley is clearly hurt and done.  Kandi encouraged her to put her feelings on pen as she has difficulty expressing her feeling and takes her to the studio.    Even with auto tune, Riley is no Solange, however Kandi get bonus points for being a supportive mom.

Across town frick and frack gets together at Porsha’s HUGE new 1.4 million house.

Cynthia is having a fashion show for her new purse and bag line in Atlanta and tells Sheree there maybe a spot for her son Kairo in the fashion show.   Sheree is bout da business and asks if he is getting paid.   Ah, no  how bout a backpack.   Sheree son has never been in any show and tells Cynthia she would prefer  the show to be on a weekend.

Porsha sits down with her unemployed boyfriend Todd and put him in check.  With all that time on his hands he’s upset Porsha has a job and cant be available when  he’s available which is all da time.  ” She tells him that he’s almost 40, so she thought he would be more responsible.   Prognoses , Nooooooo!

 The Main Event

“Who is in the Lady Pond?”

After the camping trip, Kandi meets with her staff and hubby Todd at the Kandi Factory and tell them the main event of the glamping trip.

In the meeting we learn that Kandi, Porsha, and Todd were dancing at a late night stop. With Porsha on one side, Kandi in the middle and hubby Todd bringing up the rear.  Porsha and Kandi kissed (with tounges) and Porsha offered to eat Kandi’s yum,yum until till she came.    WELL FUCKING HELLO!!!!!!

And her staff and this reviewer went wild.   WTF!

Kandi has her moments, but rarely does someone question her integrity!

Kandi admitted she has dipped into the lady pond and says that only someone who had done that before would say it just like that, so obviously Porsha has done something. Meanwhile, Todd says that whole night was pretty fun because they went to Waffle House afterward.  One of her staff members said, well if you cant eat a……

Kandi and Porsha meet for lunch and the streets (patrons) got an ear full.   Kandi is still annoyed and Porsha goes left right and to the moon.   Porsha goes in hard.  She says everyone knows Kandi is a lesbian as she has had a secret seven year relationship. She says Todd is calling women pretending to be someone named Marvin.  Porsha says  Kandi has a sex dungeon.

When Kandi brought up the kiss between the two of them and the offer of the happy meal.    Porsha took a lesson from Donald Trump, she creates news to deflect from the truth. Its fake news until she slipped.  She went into her deniel mode (it neveh evah happened) and told Kandi she wouldn’t be interested in a Tea Cup like Kandi !   So what kinda women are you interested in.

In the confessional, Kandi reminds us, she is IN THE SEX business.   She has a sex talk show,  a very successful sex toy business and she thought the Idea of a sex dungeon would be cool.

Who’s a Lesbian Now?

See ya in a couple of weeks

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Sp9 Ep13 : If these woods could talk


Q: What do you get when you mix  Sheree Whitfield with Marlo Hampton?

A: A lot of Shit!

Picking up from where we left off, the wonderful housewives are in a bus heading for the camping grounds.   The heat between Kenya and Porsha  has calmed, at least for now.  However, Kenya  still doesn’t believe Porsha’s anger management classes are working.

The ladies arrive to check in  and the desk clerk reminds them to watch out for critters in the woods.   Remember, Pheadra made arrangements for the ladies but Kandi, Porsha and Sheree, all brought uninvited guests..   Poor Sheree, at checkin, Marlo announces has gas issues.  Sheree brought everything but a GAS mask.

Earn your Peach

Alone in their cabin, Sheree the shit stirrer (maybe its appropriate Marlo is her roomate) coyly mentions  someone in the group is: “dipping in the lady pond”.  She doesn’t mention a name. but Marlo asks if its Kandi?

Sheree says she really hates the fakery. The ladies have real issues with each other but act  all friendly and nice when they hang out.

 Porsha and Phaedra have been throwing around Kandi hooking up with Shamea are just another example of stabbing a buddy in the back while kissing them on the cheek.

Shereé’s diabolical plan is to bring up the rumors during their upcoming campfire session of “Ask Marlo,”

Its Marlo Time! 

While they may have compy cabins, tonight its about the full outdoor camping experience, its Tent City Baby.

While the ladies all have their cans and bottles of bug sprays.  Leave it to Marlo, to bedazzle her can with sparkles.

While the professional can assemble his tent in five minutes, the women take much longer.   Some took two hours.

After all the tents competed, its time for roasting marshmallows and housewives. Porsha’s sister Lauren starts the “Ask Marlo ” segment of the evening.   Asking Marlo what was the deal between Marlo and Kenya.  Kenya’s look is “not again”  Marlo seems happy to share . Explaining how Kenya  left her out of a birthday and housewarming party.   While Kenya said , she “apologized multiple times” for what happened Marlo doesn’t remember and the two goes back and forth and then Marlo goes deep by saying  You know  she’s a bad person when her own mother won’t even talk to her,” which gets a immediate reaction from all the ladies .   Phaedra sweeps in and changes the conversation. .

The Morning After 

Tent free, the ladies head back to the cabins..At lunch, the topic becomes divorce. First up Pheadra. What’s the status and why its taking so long?   Kandi say’s she heard it only takes 60 days for a divorce to go through when one party is in jail (you can all most hear Mama Joyce coming through her mouth) but Porsha steps in to defend Phaedra, stating that Apollo never wanted the divorce to be finalized, and that’s why it’s taking so long.

Cynthia ,talks about her divorce from Peter . She believes they’re close to signing.  She wants closure with Peter, but he simply wants to sign the paper and be over with it.   The ladies take turns consoling her.  Peace.

At the Lake

One thing is very clear, Sheree is a city girl. She’s one for wigs, weaves  makeup and nails.  She is not feeling  the bugs, lakes or boats. She is having a fit with nature. The rest of the ladies are enjoying the canoes and paddle boats. Sheree stays on the shore, trying to avoid the flying critters.

Jump

Easy peezy, just climb up some stairs, a hundred feet and jump.  Kenya’s excited, Phaedra Sheree, and Cynthia looks up and says “nope” out the gate.  Kenya goes for it and tries her damnedest  to make it look easy.  Kandi went and looked as if she Jumps daily. Porsha, take a leap of faith, cries up and cries down. Everyone is happy.

A Candlelight Dinner (cue scary music)

The table was beautiful, the ladies are dressed (glamping) . They reminisce about the day’s events and then…………..

Kenya apologizes (yet again) for hurting Marlo’s feelings.  The MARLO apologizes for going low about her mother. Kenya is moved.  Then (cue scary music) Marlo says she’ll move forward “with caution.” Then Marlo decides to take it there by  asking Kandi if she is a lesbian.

Are we all enjoying the salad ?

Every bodies eyes popped out with Kandi being the most confused. . Marlo clarifies that she heard the rumor from specific people in the group, which sends everyone into a fit trying to defend themselves.

Porsha and  Pheadra who started all this mess are quiet. Pheadra’s plan was to keep her mouth on the glass of wine she was drinking.    Porsha,  took the Owl route, by continually asking Who?

Sheree is pissed, fit to be tied and finally calls out Porsha, and everyone crack ups having to watch Porsha pretend to be surprised.  Shereé tells Kandi about when Porsha said, “She’s still in the closet.” Kandi shuts it all down, saying she’s “done things” with women in the past, but now she is strictly dickly for her husband. She adds that Porsha has her own experiences in the same area and won’t own up to it.

The Cool Down

The group divides into smaller groups.  In the rooms, they break it DOWN. Kandi vents her frustrations to Hazel, Kenya, and Cynthia, calling Porsha an “aggressive lesbian” when she gets drunk.   In another room , Porsha, Lauren, and Phaedra get upset over Kandi insinuating that Porsha has ever done something sexual with another woman.

Hope your taking note for the reunion.   For now I will call it LesbianGate!   Ellen, Rosie O Donnell and Wyand Sikes will break it down for us.

Coming soon Kim Zolciak, and possibly a woman named Leakes

Hot Damm!

Real Housewives of Atlanta S9 EP12 “Into the Woods or the Adventures of Fric,Frack and Whack”


Friendships are challenged and a rerun of feuds sum up last nights episode.

Fric & Whack

The new team of Fric (Phaedra) and Whack (Kenya) go shopping for supplies for the glamping trip.   (Isn’t glamping a stupid word, there is nothing glamorous about camping unless its done from the 15th floor or a resort)    Phaedra wants Kenya to keep it cool around Frack (Porsha). Kenya insists Porsha’s anger management isn’t working.  Kenya is an expert on anger management, after all her whacked out boytoy regularly breaks out the windows on her home.

Cynthia, Kenya and Whacked OutBoyToy

Cynthia meets with Kenya’s Boy Toy to see whats happening with Kenya and the Toy(Matt).  Matt says Kenya doesn’t respect him and they don’t know how to communicate AND he gets upset and starts breaking things ….  At her house of course. Cynthia tries to make Matt feels a little bit better by saying  Kenya is a drama queen.

 (come on say it with me Duh!)

Later, Kenya visits Cynthia at the new lake house.  Cynthia shares her conversation with Matt.  This sends Kenya to the moon, screaming Matt is a child and psychotic  and calls their relationship a cycle of abuse! Kenya steps it up a bit by questioning Cynthia’s loyalty cause Kenya is ALWAYS defending Cynthia’s honor and name.   MISS KENYA MOORE! WILL NOT HAVE HER NAME BESMIRCHED LIKE THIS! (I’ll have to look up Besmirched to see if any one has done that to me?) AND SHE DRIVES OFF IN A HUFF!      (Kenya a drama queen? nah)

Time for a White Party featuring Black People

Kandi’s friend Shamea is getting married.. Kandi throws her a white party. Everyone is invited except Phaedra and Kenya.  Cynthia, Marlo and Sheree show up wearing something other than white.

Porsha and Shamea are besties and Porsha doesn’t show up.  Shamea is disappointed.

Ladies and Gentleman.  “Its time for some Shit from Sheree”

With Phaedra absent, Sheree says Phaedra is telling people Shamea loves sleeping with married men. Shamea, says Apollo constantly threw himself at her and suggests Phaedra is a Public Utility (meaning she is sucking dick ALL ovah!) Complete with gestures that some would consider inappropriate gestures for an engagement party!

Shamea is also upset that her bestie didn’t defend her.

Porsha visitS Shamea to apologize for missing her engagement party.  She arrives with a gift and tells Shamea how she cant be around Kandi right now.  Shamea confronts Porsha with all the rumors and how her bestie didn’t defend her.  Porsha temporarily slips into a dumb and stupid mode, maybe she did defend Shamea.

Meanwhile

Shamea tells Kenya to watch out for Phaedra.  She reminds us when Phaedra used to say that Porsha is stupid and has a little head full of brains.

Porsha and the Coach

Porsha is going to an anger management coach. She talks about last week and the ambush. She tells him about being upset when Kandi put her on the defensive and What worse Kenya made light of the embarrassing situation.

I still find it interesting that Kenya is concerned about Porsha and not about Matt.

Glamping and another chapter of Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor

Its the day of the glamping trip but before we move on, its time for another tired chapter of Chateau Sheree vs Moore Manor.

At Moore Manor, Kenya got it going on, with a full spread of sandwiches and has fruits and fresh veggies.   Meanwhile, at the Chateau, Sheree looks like she’s selling Girl Scout Cookies outside a shopping mall . With a plastic folding table with cookies in their plastic container  I beginning to believe that the Chateau is rented with Sheree waiting for the current tenant to move out.  The ladies loyal to Sheree precamped outside with a Chips Ahoy and those at the manor lounged inside  with fresh food . Advantage Moore.

Unknown to Phaedra, some of the ladies are bringing their friends including pre peached Marlo. Porsha brings her sister Lauren and Kandi brings her friend Hazel.

Marlo  was dressed for fashion shoe and somewhere  between the snacks and glamping bus, she christened herself the pearl of wisdom.  Any questions the ladies have about anything ,you could ask Marlo.

 What may have began as a joke, backfired on Porsha. as she produces a note from her doctor explaining why she brought her sister along.   Reopening another round of Porsha’s anger management.  To be continued next week

The Real Housewives of Atlanta S9 Ep 11: Kenya, Rhymes with Witch is Back


In Episode 11 “Thelma and Louise Takes Flint”, Hell froze over.  Porsha’s Wisdom. Kenya is back to her old ways.

Cynthia

I love Cynthia Bailey, she beautiful, wise, and very likable but there isn’t much of a story line.  She has moved Kandi’s guest house with her wigs and Fruit Loops waiting for the appraisal on her Lake House.   The appraisal come in and now she’s waiting to close. The End.

Porsha and Todd

Porsha and Todd have lunch at a restaurant. Todd informs her there was a bit of controversy about an Instagram picture they took together.at his job.  Apparently someone at his job follows  Porsha’s posts and are concerned about her references about the Democratic Party.   He goes on to say his boss is very conservative and possibly a Trump supporter and he had to choose, and chose Porsha over his job.

Todd expected oohs and ahhs from Porsha, what he received was  just the opposite. Why would you quit your JOB!    Which  was a lot of hooey.  Did I say hooey? I meant BULLSHIT!  Home cheese was most likely fired, his demeanor is more childlike than adult.  Perhaps he thinks he’s gonna get paid for being on the show.   Porsha ain’t feeling it.

   Hell Froze Over

After all those years of mutual hate and disgust. Kenya and Phaedra has bonded, they were like Thelma and Louise in a vintage Caddy Convertible they drove to a Michigan Camp ground.   Phaedra raised money for some children from Flint Michigan.    Kenya wasn’t pleased with her camp liked accommodations and split to a Hilton.

The children loved Kenya and  her positive energy (yes I said positive). There were some heartbreaking stories from some of the male children. Children who has seen violence close up and one young man who has never seen his parents. The sadness hit Kenya hard and she told Phaedra she needed to be reminded of what’s important in life.    There is something to be said about Phaedra as she seems to work tirelessly giving back to the community.

A Bedridden Porsha

Porsha fainted at a nail salon. Her doctor tells her to take a couple of days off.   She thinks its stress related, as she is looking for a house and other issues in her life. Namely Todd.  Todd drops by to see her. He brings her some ice cream and kisses her neck as if……   Porsha isn’t feeling him, in fact she’s pissed.  His sweet talk is not working and she tells him he need to shape up and not act like everything is cool.  He may have quit the job  for her, (Bullshit)but this isn’t what she wanted. She thought she had a stable man to father her child. Todd, disagrees and tells her they should talk later.

Good Thing She waited to eat

Sweaty Bob, Sheree’s ex has spent the season attempting to woo his suspicious ex.   This time  out, Sweaty Bob pulls out all the stops and rents out a French burlesques club. Sweaty, know for fine dining at Atlanta’s best chicken shacks, even hires a dancer.   How so nevah, she is not the dancer Bob dances for Sheree.  Home Cheese was grinding winding and finding his sexy on the stage with a big boa.   Love him, pat him dry, Bob is funny!

However the two have a past, and Sheree has few memories of joy.   She remembers being thrown out of Spain.  Bob threw a drink in her face and as we know Sheree has never been anyone’s punk and she went vintage Tina Turner on Ike (I mean,Sweaty Bob) and Spain said, yall  got to go back to Nutbush!

 

She’s Back to her old Witchy Ways

Phaedra fresh and glowy from her positive camping trip in Michigan decides all the ladies should get together for a SIT-DOWN (cue scary music)to talk about how to make their relationships stronger.

At the restaurant, Phaedra shares her experience in Michigan, in fact she takes it a step further and suggest they all go camping or glamping. All is well, the ladies seem to be interested.

Kenya out of nowhere brings up Porsha’s anger issues. She said that Phaedra  was wondering if Porsha’s anger management was working?  She reminds everyone that Porsha has physically assaulted people on three separate occasions .  Things rapidly deteriorate from there as now Kandi is yelling at Porsha . Porsha is yelling back and Kenya seems to be yelling at everyone.

Porsha showing restraint, gets up and leaves.  No one has been slapped at this point. Phaedra takes chase after her buddy Porsha.  Kenya takes chase after both of them yelling at Porsha.  Pushing, pushing all of her buttons.

Porsha leaves, the ladies are now in the parking lot arguing .  Sheree tries to take up for Porsha telling Kenya, she does provoke situations.  Vintage Kenya returns, attacking Sheree, saying Sheree was beaten up by an ex boy friend. Kenya is in super clown mode, squatting walking around in the parking lot like some bizarro duck.  Sheree is hot, in the back of her mind, she must being saying to herself, you know I just got my peach back,  but baby I would LOVE to beat this bitches ass.

Meanwhile

Phaedra convinces Porsha to return.  Porsha is hott, but focused.  Its now Porsha, Phaedra and Sheree.

With laser like clarity ,Porsha tells Phaedra who tried to defend Kenya*. ” You’ve got a fake friend-Kenya doesn’t care about anyone but herself. Don’t tell her any thing ! Porsha asks Phaedra how did the anger issue come about?    *Phaedra is at the center of this storm. She mistakenly shared too much with Kenya. However,its not likely for Phaedra to apologize until she’s cornered.

Its possible Matt soften Kenya, she has been relatively pleasant.  With that relationship on the rocks, it looks like the old cruel mean Kenya is back.

Next weeks episode looks like Fiya! 

Cynthia is back in the mix and we know Sheree is NOT done!

Tell me what you think!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta S9 E8 “Bosom Buddies”


kand-porsha

Get your parasols and raincoats its about to get UGLY in the ATL. Give me a minute to get to the bottom of this  ugly nastiness. .

Cynthia 2.0 has a new house by the lake, soon to be single and 50 she  wants to tune up her tits. So she does what every women does, invites all her girls friends.    The first to arrive is her second bestie Kenya and the I’m always late Kandi.   Kandi, fresh from her explosive heart to heart for former bestie Phaedra.  Ask’s if Phaedra coming. After it was confirmed Kandi shares the discussion she had with Phaedra the day before with  Cynthia and Kenya. Kandi shares details of the discussion ,including some of Phaedra’s very private and personal information.  The ladies arrive, Phaedra greets everyone.  Someone ask the doctor if he could tell who’s breast were natural ,he correctly guested, however, Kenya insists her’s were natural. (cough-choke)

Cynthia daughter  Noelle meets with her soon to be ex step father Peter.  It seems during a divorce, no one ever ask the children. He’s been a large part of her life for nearly half her life. The two meets up at her yoga class and agree to stay in touch.

Kandi, drops 5k in Jeweley on her daughter Riley for her birthday.  Riley gets a call from her bio dad Block, who wants to meet with her. Kandi feels she should be alone with her bio dad.  Over cake, Kandi agrees to accompany her.

The things you learn

Porsha and friend Shemea takes a  “Yoni Egg” where a glass egg is inserted inside a womans……. to strengthen that mid region. Image result for yoni egg

Sheree, passes on the eggs, in, out, over ,easy, whateveh.  She is there to confirm Kandi’s rumors about Phaedra’s  supposed infidelity.  Who else would know other than Porsha, Phaedra’s new bestie.   Porsha said ,she didn’t know and says Kandi shouldn’t  be spreading rumors….its bad bad bad.

It’s about to get Ugly up in here!

You tell on me, I might just tell on you!

Porsha protects one friend and throws another one under THE BIG BUS!

Sheree and Porsha are salivating with Phaedra arrives. They have NEWS!   They review the infidelity rumors.    Phaedra act’s shocked (oh my word?)

Sheree takes it from there and asks Pheadra did she know how close Kandi and Shemea were?    Pheadra says Kandi and Shemea are sleeping together AND gets together with Kandi’s hubby Todd for some three ways.

Porsha’s not done!  She meets with Kandi,of course our court reporter Sheree is there.  Porsha is pissed!   Someone (cough-court reporter) brought up Porsha dating Kandi’s baby daddy Block, insinuating Porsha slept with him.  Porsha blamed Kandi for spreading the news, Kandi did not back down!

“You Did”    Running low on brain cells, Porsha attempts to tell Kandi how bad! bad! bad! it is to talk about Phaedra and Apollo’s relationship

Say it with me…..BOOM!!!!.

Kandi goes for it!  Kandi told Porsha. She and Phaedra haven’t been close in years AND any negativity about Phaedra is appropriate!

Kandi, suggest Phaedra is spreading rumors. Rumor that has cost her $$$$

Porsha, who has taken on Kenya and other women, stepped back on Kandi, knowing she was on TILT!   Porsha retreated, its wrong to spread a rumor with out proof.   Kandi  said Phaedra was chatting with another dude when Apollo FIRST went to jail! and YOU know what I know!   Porsha, with all her brain cells used up, tried, to look like she knew nothing! NOTHING!

Porsha wisely saved her life by not mentioning Phaedra’ lesbian story.  Kandi makes her leave.  This is the second time in a row we have seen Kandi(who really likes food) leaving a restaurant without so much as a piece of bread.

Porsha living on the edge.

BEFORE Kandi gets in her car, Porsha tells Shereé she believes Kandi is “in the closet’ Apparently Porsha isn’t all about the proof and that wasn’t lost on Sheree.

NOTE: Is Kandi justified in revealing Phaedra’s secrets?

Do you believe Phaedra is telling Kandi’s secrets off camera to protect her image?

Married 2 Medicine Houston: Diversity finds its way to Bravo


Image result for married to medicine houston

Diversity in Hollywood often means A person of color, usually black. For years there there was only one box for a person of color and black person filled it.   While there is still the one box,now Latins and gays compete with blacks for that single box.  Asian females may find an occasional role but Asian males…….   Actors of other hues can be in the background if its in a urban setting.

In 2016, TV is still in black and white.

In the early nineties. TV producers Mary Ellis Burim and Jonathan Murray pitched one of the earliest reality shows for M-TV.   The ground breaking show featured a diverse cast. For the first time we saw different races, sexual orientations and individuals of different  religious and political backgrounds all living under one roof.

Image result for the real world

The Real World Opened with:

This is the true story of seven strangers picked to live in a house (work together ) and have their lives taped. To find out what happens… when people stop being polite and start getting real…..

The Real World is still in production however, Burim and Murray are no longer associated with the show and the show has deteriorated into more of a Frat house , drunken fights and sexual escapades.

_____________________________________________

In Bravoland

There are exclusive communities of white women in Orange County, Beverly Hills, London,Dallas and New York City. Exclusive communities of black women in Atlanta and the Potomac.  White people trying not to be Tardy, out at sea, in a lodge, getting giggy at Pump,  and a small group of thirty forty somethings Persians partying in LA.

Bravo’s “Shahs  of Sunset” is the first show featuring Persian Americans. In between the boozy fights and arguments we learn why successful families left Iran.  One of member of the cast is a married gay man.  Viewers saw his struggles with his culture. In 2016 Iran, gays can be punished or put to death for being gay.     While Shahs is often filled with reality style fights and conflicts, it also allows us to see their families, traditions and struggles rarely seen outside of a documentary . The show is very entertaining.

Diversity in Houston

On the surface one would think “Married to Medicine Houston”, is a spin off of Married to Medicine (now in it’s third season).  Married to Medicine is based in Atlanta, where most of the women are married to doctors. M2M is reality Tv 101.  Fights (some of them physical ) conflicts, jealousy.   Atlanta seems to be the home of pretentiousness.   On M2M two cast members are doctors and one is a dentist. The other cast members are married to doctors.

In Houston, nearly all of the women are professionals

Dr Erika Sato is a  Plastic Surgeon, her father is Asian her mother is Italian.  Her parents were professional wrestlers. and  she is married to a younger Doctor who’s family is very conservative.

Dr Monica Patel is an Indian cardiologist.  A quadruple board certified cardiologist. Monica doesn’t look like anyone on Grey’s Anatomy   Monica is stacked and is in full makeup and heels.  Monica  is divorced and wanting to get married and start a family. She’s been dating a man “Imad” for a few years. He has a successful business three hours away in San Antonio.  They see each other on weekends and they are of different faiths.

Elly Pourasef is an Persian Audiologist.

Dr. Ashandra Bastiste who is a Dental Surgeon her husband “Ricky’ is a medical equipment salesman. They share a son and a daughter from a previous marriage. Their relationship seems solid and the banter between the two is infectious.  A fun happy family on a reality tv show?

Rachel Suliburk who is white of Spanish descent married to Dr James Suliburk, a trama surgeon.  Rachel is currently a nursing student.  Living in their home is her mother Maribel. Maribel is charming and out of control and Rachel is the den mother.

Yes there are cat fights (this is reality tv) there are some resentments in the group.  If your  looking for a fist fight, turn the channel, at least for this season. So far this season a lot of the drama comes from outside the group.  Not sure if there is a mandatory Bravo hatecation planned.

These women are intelligent, driven and trying to balance career and home life. Some of the women  relatively new to medicine are making contacts in the community.  Unlike the housewives these ladies are relatable .

Like Shahs, we get a brief glimpse of some of the cultural traditions and values.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: S9 Ep 7 “Model Behavior


Image result for kairo whitfield

I found Model Behavior a bit frustrating from nearly beginning to end. There may have been editing problems, But there were more than couple of scenes didn’t make any sense other scenarios that didn’t jive..

I say nearly because of ….

 Porsha is babysitting  Phaedra’s super intelligent boys Aiden and Dillon.  The two suffer no fools and they are very outspoken. At one point a frustrated Porsha tells Dillon the youngest of the two “you really have to trust me!” Dillon, not missing a beat ‘I DON’T TRUST YOU!   Porsha ,who gives us one nearly every week (remember last weeks ,what? 45 days is about three weeks!) didn’t disappoint last night.

At one point,the two boys are fighting over a remote. Porsha said! ( I know your reaction was the same as mine! ) Violence IS NOT THE ANSWER!  Coming from the queen of the smack down, currently in anger management. (It just might be working)   There was a lesson learned for Porsha, who was considering having a child on her own but Aiden and Dillion made her rethink her position.,perhaps  two parents are better than one.

More Porsha

Porsha has been dating an old boyfriend Todd, and invites him for dinner at mom’s house.  Everybody is there (No pressure) mama, sister and brother. (did we know Porsha had a brother?)    Todd is super quiet, which isn’t lost on sis.  Todd nervously giggles as three sets of eyeballs are on him. (No pressure at tall)  They grill him like a porterhouse steak and onions.    They learn he has an 16 and a 14 year old and that its possible, it could be,  he may be open to having kids.   He seals the deal by saying he loves Porsha.  Porsha squeals.

Next we see Sheree’s handsome son Kairo, in his first model shoot.  After a few shots Sheree’s ex and Kairo’s dad Bob Whitfield appears, why?   In the first shot, Bob is dry, in the next he is perspiring so much he could solve California’s drought. Hello? Bravo?  Bob seems surprised by the photo shoot? huh?  How did he get the address? Moving on.     Sheree invites RHOA resident model and agent Cynthia Bailey and suggests her son appear during New York’s Fashion Week, considered to be the Academy Awards for models. Cynthia’s expression said it all.

We want Kenya Moore to find a man, to love.  Her on off, mythical relationships has been a part of the her story line since she’s been on the show.   Kenya is beautiful smart and very manipulative .  The relationship with big wheel riding Matt seemed genuine last season

The scene begin with us seeing the aftermath of Matt’s anger.  Three large panes of glass large enough for Bob Whitfield to climb through.  Kenya lives in the woods, who would leave those openings?  If your Kenya, it is for validation of what a mean horrible man boy Matt is.  However, what does that say about you?

She calls her dad in Texas, she wants him to talk to Matt.   She fly’s her dad out to Atlanta. The windows on the garage are still broken.

Matt agrees to meet Dad and then is a no show.  Kenya says he sent her 17 text messages. Based on what we know from the last two episodes,one wonders if he told her he wasn’t coming in one of those texts.   When Matt finally arrives, pop’s becomes Dr Phil with an edge,  he knows his daughter. At at the end of the session he tells Matt he can either accept Kenya for who she is now, or he can walk out of the door and not look back.

Keeping it Professional

Its time for another meeting at the Kandi Factory.  First up ,on the agenda is the Status of the “Old Lady Restaurant”  Todd looks at the sky, Kandi is clearly done,next.  Kandi’s cell phone rings in this important meeting.  Its Phaedra, who wants to meet with Kandi, with the phone call over. The meeting becomes about Phaedra, its been awhile since the two have met. The rest of this segment is mostly about trashing Phaedra.

Meanwhile, across town, in Phaedra’s office. We have a lady, (turns out to be Drama, Drama’s mother).  The reception person, announces her arrival to Phaedra without pausing  walks her to Phaedra’s office (which seems odd) what if Phaedra needed a minute?  The lady enters the office as Phaedra is folding a thin sheet of paper.  It all seems contrived. Drama’s mom is concerned how her son is being portrayed as a psycho.  Phaedra agrees its sad and overblown yet Phaedra reportedly has a full time body guard.

If you google Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks you’ll find many happy pictures of two  smiling and laughing. The two have known each other decades.  But that was two seasons ago.

Kandi and Phaedra meet at a restaurant.  It’s ice cold as the two meet with a faded Hello.   The ever cool looking Ms Parks was bothered by Mama/Monster Joyce comments about the hand grenade.  You remember, Monsters Joyce proudly repeating “He said he was going to blow you the fuck up”   But this time Kandi was cocked and loaded.   Yall know somethings up when she doesn’t order food.

We’ve seen this fight played out several times before, filled with tears. There is nothing new here.  On this day there aren’t any tears*   At one point during the fight, Phaedra says maybe she loved Kandi more than she loved her husband Apollo. But Kandi is over it, there is nothing Phaedra can do or say.  Kandi thanked her for the invitation and wished Phaedra’s family well and leaves.    Still the iron lady, I noticed some sadness in Phaedra* and quite possibly a tear.

What are your thoughts of Kandi and Phaedra? Do you have side?
