RHOA: S10 ep6 “All Aboard The Shady Express”


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta season 10 episode 6

I’m not ready to give Marlo Hampton a peach YET!  But I want more of her and Nene clearly needs her.   As Nene was flapping her gums, Marlo was fixing her wig and her bob that had collapsed on her head.  Marlo not only fixed that wig (how does someone have a problem with a wig?) but she tighten up Nene’s clothes all the while Nene going off on Porsha.

Last night’s episode began where the last episode left off with Nene’s and Porsha’s  petty argument in San Francisco.    While the fight began with the beef between to of them it evolved into Nene’s defense of Kandi.  Nene suggests Porsha’s should have been fired along with Phaedra.   As Nene is being pushed out the door, Sheree stays with Porsha.

The next morning, the ladies board a motorized cable car for a tour on the city.  On the tour Kenya shares pictures of her paternal grandmother who raised her.  Kenya is leaving a day early to attend her funeral.  Kenya’ distress hits Porsha who just lost a family member.   Cynthia notices and comforts Porsha.

Say what you want about Cynthia, but she seems to be the only real adult in Atlanta this season.   She is loyal to a fault, and while Porsha is on the outs with most of these ladies, Cynthia isn’t as cold as say Nene.  She has been drugged through the mud by Nene and tells Porsha its gonna take a while. Nene, hates that Cynthia is no longer following her like a lap dog and she hates being number two to Kenya.

Porsha apologies to Kandi, again. Not sure she is sincere, perhaps she thinks if Kandi opens up a little, the other ladies will come around.  Right now, she is the outcast.

In Chinatown,Porsha, Sheree, and Marlo decide that they should do something nice for Kenya that night since she’s having a hard time.  with a cardboard groom. Someone went on the street and filled the room  with a random gay audience. This could have gone south, but  Kenya went with it .

 Porsha Williams shared some of her wisdom with us.   In San Francisco’s Chinatown,she says “I feel like I just stepped out the trolley, and now I’m in Tokyo!”  

 At  Fisherman’s Wharf, Nene tells her circle that Sheree’s incarcerated boyfriend is a con man who was arrested for conning a company out of “like $4 million.”  We see a flashback when Nene and Sheree was talking about the notorious Tyrone. ,Kandi says, “I hope he don’t con her out of Chateau Sheree.”   Kenya comes quick with  ” Well, it’s not in her name so he can’t do that,”

 

After a ninety minute bus ride, the ladies boarded a wine train.    After Porsha returns from a restroom break, she finds herself sitting with Kenya and Kandi. Can someone say awkward.    The tension breaks after Porsha orders a Vegan meal and shares that she in now 175 pounds.

Nene who is sometimes the expert on all things told the group Sheree’s boyfreind was in the joint for “tricking the stocks”  Sheree laughs and corrects her “It wasn’t stocks that he went in for it was security fraud and wire fraud!”   GET IT RIGHT BITCH!

Marlo brought her skills to the vineyard.  As the over the top flirty owner was feeding grapes to the ladies, Marlo deep throated the grapes, as to say, bitches this is how you get a summer home.     Grapes are stomped wine is enjoyed all is good in Napa.

Kenya has exited to attend her grandmothers funeral.  With Kenya gone, Marlo  says “Let’s play a game: How many believe that Kenya is really married? Raise your hand,”asked the group, do they believe she’s married? and she shadily thinks its weird Cynthia hasn’t met him.

Cynthia leaves the table and in her confessional says “These girls are a trip; they rained on Kenya’s parade when she didn’t have a man, they rain on it extra hard now that she does have one.”

While it may have been all in fun, Cynthia is a loyal friend and there is a part of her is hurt that her bestie didn’t tell her, didn’t introduce her  didn’t include in the wedding.

RHOA: S10 Ep4 Kim Zolciak throws Atlanta a lifeline.


Image result for kenya moore kim zolciak

 

You know thing are bad in Atlanta when Cynthia Bailey has the most interesting story line. This was the single worst RHOA episode in resent memory.  There were random shots of the housewives homes that weren’t connected to anything.  This was bad y’all!

The episode begins with Nene and Gregg returning from the hospital, Gregg dads had heart issues and more tests are on the horizon.  Sheree gets a visit from her Life Coach Jack Daniels who gives her a homework assignment before she talks to her kids of the televised abuse she received from Bob.  Meanwhile all these organizations wants Sheree as a spokes person when she cant talk to her own children.

Somewhere in the episode Kenya says someone wants her to talk about her domestic  abuse.   Kenya, we are abused by your antics, your invisible hubby and the absence of any real story line.  .

Kandi goes to New York for a photo shoot for the cover of Essence Magazine.  Its big deal, she will be on the confidence issue, she is a natural model and looks fantastic.  She says being successful is important but whats more important to her is being a successful mother.

Porsha and her sister Lauren’s make up.  No matter how Big she becomes she will never forget about her little sister.  Who needs a real job at a real company to gain some self confidence.

The center of the Episode, right after Gregg’s ordeal is a Girls and Gays Never Forget All White Party at the Leakes house. ( The man could have serious heart issues. Let’s have a party!)   Come on now!   

We go out on another date with Cynthia and Will this time its ice cream.  There seems to be a spark between them with a little more flirting.  WILL: Tell me about Lake Bailey.  CYNTHIA: I just live there    Will wants to know when is he gonna be invited to Lake Bailey and Cynthia is a little apprehensive.  She clearly wants to move slow.   Their relationship has made the blogs and he seems concerned.  Cynthia tries to  reassure him .

At the party we see some old faces.  Lisa Wu ,Marlo Hampton and Derek J who still cant walk in heels.    Derek J is a little troubled by the invitation, which sound like bring a gay to the party.

Sheree’s gay is Kim Zolciak who once had a brief lesbian affair.   Nene doesn’t knows she is coming.

10 years ago Kim Zolciak was 29, from wig pulling and beefs with Nene, she was mildly aggressive.   The 39 year old Zolciak (I will call her Kim 2.0)  seems fearless and brought life to this episode of Atlanta.   The 29 year old Kim wasn’t confrontational. The 39/40 year Kim Z doesn’t seem to give a Fuck and her favorite target is Kenya.   It doesn’t make any sense,they haven’t seen each other in a year.  With red cup in hand, she goes after Kenya.

She pretends not to know Kenya’s name.  “What about the other girl, the fucking dumb bitch at your house?”   When Marlo tells Kenya that she can’t wait to meet her new husband, Kim comes back .   It ain’t gonna fucking happen bitch because he don’t fucking exist.”   When the other ladies mention that ani’t met him either.  Kim makes sure every one hears her when she say’s “It’s all a bunch of LIES, a bunch of BULLSHIT! 

Those individuals who aren’t fans of Kenya were screaming and jumping up and down.

Kim 2.0 doesn’t make any sense, but that’s why we watch, we want the tea and the shade and 2.0 was on fire.

Unlike Phaedra and Porsha, Kenya seems to struggle with Kim….  Perhaps is because 2.0 goes as low and doesn’t seem to give a fuck .  Perhaps Kenya doesn’t want to go that low.  One thing I’m sure of. Kenya hates every fiber in Kim’s body and she wants Kim to be run over and killed by someone driving a hoopty!

When Kenya  finally comes back at Kim.  She stumbles .”Why do you have such a hard-on for me?”  “Didn’t they cut it off during your reassignment surgery?”   (Kenya expect a call from the Transgender community)  Then Kenya makes another wrong turn, talking about her kids.  (Yikes)

Kim brought life to Atlanta last night.  However she is a friend to the show, a show that has been a snooze fest these season.   Looking forward to part two.

RHOA: S10 Ep3 ‘Chateau Get Down’


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta season 10 episode 3

Sheree brings back the 70’s  Moore of Kenya’s Mystery Man

Cynthia dates a MAN!   Kandi Xscapes the OLG

Porsha Dream Salon-Gregg’s Emergency

Last nights episode began with Porsha and family at a salon getting body wraps,  Perhaps this is a new part of her vegan regiment. (yawn).

Meanwhile C. Bailey continues to make 50 look good. We go with her on he first date with “Will” who seems to bring the perfect into gentleman.  He is thoughtful and polite. he doesn’t bring his cell phone on dates.  Will at 41 ,is closer to her age.  C. Bailey likes what she sees and unlike her last date, he didn’t make her work or scratch her car with his Big Wheel .

Sheree is planning a 70’s themed birthday party for mana Thelma. Her children including Sheree’s 31 year old daughter (Bravo can be soo messey-and I love it! ) are shopping for costumes.

Its hott in Atlanta, complains Gregg and he and Nene sit by the pool. I guess being in the Air Conditioned  house isn’t on option. We see their son Brent, for the first time in years and the boy is huge.

Kandi and Todd has a meeting with staff.  The OLG restaurant has a large and unfamiliar staff and they are in the need for General Manager.  Speaking of Changes Carman is leaving the Kandi factory and is starting her own insurance company.  Kandi is underwriting the business.  ( I want to be Kandi’s friend too!)  The meeting seems to be a review of the gossip which includes talk about the Xscape tour. Meeting Adjourned

Cynthia visits Moore manor.  Kenya says, the dog peed on her wedding dress.   This dog is five inches tall.   Either the dress was on the floor or the the dogs has an extenda dick with a powerspray function.  Come on Kenya, Come on!

Porsha, Porsha, Porsha, wants to open a salon with sister Lauren.   They meet with a business manager and a Real Estate professional  . While the business manager wants a plan our Porsha is plan less.   When asked what would make her Salon stand out in Atlanta, she believes her star power alone would bring in the clients.   While she tells her sister Lauren, its there project where Lauren would be in charge of the day to day operations, Porsha figures a fair split would be 85% and Lauren would receive 15%  Lauren feelings are hurt because it sound less than a partnership and Porsha seems to feel she is already getting benefits by living in her home.   Porsha who has a budget of ten thousand dollars* a month wants to open the salon in month.   The professionals tell her with permits finding a location etc a realistic time is nine months.   * Ten thousand dollars, didn’t Porsha say she couldn’t afford 10k for an airline trip to attend her best friends wedding?

Gregg went to the hospital concerned about chest pains. Insists Nene goes to Sheree;s party.

Sheree was having party planning issues. I was hoping for a new catch phase. “Who gonna check me boo” is still relevent after all these years.   Sheree’s party planner initially said she was running a little late and then abruptly cancelled telling Sheree she was on her own.    I love ya Sheree, but I wonder if payment was and issue?.

KENYA MO!    I want you to find love, I want to believe you are married. But you make it hard for us.  When every time you call your hubby, we don’t hear his voice.  You went through great lengths to make us believe calling him several times leaving messages.   Nene , who doesn’t miss a trick sees his side of the closet and notices most of the things have price tags on them so you can take them all back to Ross and get you money back.   I wanna believe, Kenya but you make if difficult.

The Party at Chateau Sheree is festive and everyone is having a good time in their  seventies garb.

The next day, Gregg is freaking out a little out the hospital (you can hear it in his voice) he has low blood pressure and they have changed the time of his procedure and he wants Nene there.

Folks despite Nene’s return, this was a little slow.  This episode was about a four. Next week Kim Z is returning. Perhaps her shock paddles will bring life back to Atlanta.

For the love of Maury


Depending which side of the Sofa your setting on 1991 was the high point or low point for Television.

     September 9th, the Maury Povich Show Premiered

September 16th The Jenny Jones Show

                       September 30th The Jerry Springer Show

Talk shows were on fire. 

Oprah Winfrey had passed Donahue in the ratings.   By the late eighties Ms Winfrey’s show wasn’t as high brow as Phil’s and the audience ate it up. 

Maury, Jenny and Jerry Initially were lower quality copies of Oprah. Problem was they weren’t Oprah!

Over time each of the shows host found their niche.

By 95, Maury Povich was simply Maury and while the show covered many topics, by 2008,it came together with paternity testing being the central theme.

There are no surprises, the mother is convinced that the man she brought to the show is the child’s father.  Look at the forehead, the dimples, the little crinkle in the lip she pleads.   If the families are involved there will be loud denials  (That ain’t my child!) or the all purpose,it could be anybodies, shes a ho! 

The audience is caught up in the drama.   Finally, the results are brought to the stage and read by Maury, who learns the paternity when everyone else does. 

When it comes to Baby Alice, “You are NOT the father”   The mother is off, she runs up the stairs in complete shock and makes the (Connecticut Curve) and runs down the ramp or falls down the ramp on the floor where she is a heaping pile of tears.

I particularly  like when they don’t make the curve and bounce off the wall (yes, I have a sick twisted sadistic side) .   Maury often invites the women back to locate Baby Alice’s papa. 

I’ve always questioned where they find these people to completely humiliate themselves on National TV.  There was one women who was on nearly a dozen times trying to locate the father of her child.  

These people aren’t paid.  They are flown out for the taping, put into a hotel for one night and fed.         On a flight to Chicago, I met two young people from Auburn California on route to Ricki Lake show. It was their first time on a plane.  I asked if their parents knew? and their faces turned red. 

 

“Fast Fact”

For the first 18 seasons Maury was taped in the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York, where he show shared the facility with the Sally Jessie Rapheal Show and the Peoples Court.

In 2009. the show moved to Stamford Connecticut  where they now share a faculty with The Jerry Springer Show and the Steve Wilkos Show.

There are many people, who poo poo reality shows and shows like Maury. Springer and Maury have been on for 26 years.  So someone is watching  and if its you, we wont tell too many people.

Is Nene Leakes over?


It very possible Nene Leakes career ended last Saturday Night at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, California after Nene told a heckler

I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo’ ass tonight when he take you home, bitch,”And steal yo’ funky Hello Kitty, bitch.”

Image result for it takes a lifetime to build a reputation but only moments to destroy it

The Boo’s came from Nene’s fans.  “

Nene Leakes is one of Reality Television’s biggest stars.  Most of her loyal fans know  her  her from Bravo’s Real Housewife of Atlanta.  RHOA’s superfan TV Producer Ryan Murphy cast her on Glee and the New Normal.  Leakes has appeared on Broadway in Cinderella and in Chicago. After leaving RHOA for a couple seasons she has returned for 10th Season.

Nene Leakes popularity made economic sense for Xscape Reunion Tour and her firing made economic sense for the group as they did so today.

Nene’s fate rests in the hands of public opinion.  Like many newscaster, actors and other public figures, she and her career may fade into the sunset.   Like many of these public figures she said she had a breakdown.  This will not matter to millions of rape victims who have seen the videos on social media.

Nene’s friends and colleagues have told her to be quiet. 

Last year “The Real Housewife’s of Auckland was pulled after a cast member called another cast member Nigger.

A few bloggers have reported Bravo executives are concerned  as the tenth season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres next month.

Binge Worthy: The Real Housewives of Auckland


Who Knew?

March 21 2006, The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered on Bravo. Followed by The Real Housewives of New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington DC,Miami.   In 2011, the franchise went global,  Athens Greece, Vancouver, Melbourne Australia, Cheshire in Britain, Auckland,  Toronto ,Sydney and later this year “The Real Housewives of Hungary.

Every now an then Bravo places an International franchise in the schedule.  Last year it was Melbourne, this year Auckland New Zealand.

In the first episode “Model Behavior” Some of the cast member’s are meeting each other for the first time.  The setting is Julia Sloane’s birthday party.   At the party we learn  Michelle Blanchard was a model.  Enter Angela Stone, who says she is a model.  A shocked ,Michelle says, “You still model? Plus size, or…”  Angela blinks rapidly, smiles and says, “No, not at all.”        “I’m just saying,” replies Michelle.  Angela tears up. (Like how dare she!) Michelle, not remorseful at all  quickly adds  “Sweetie, with tits like that you’re not a normal-sized model. Get over it.”

I’m all in!

And I’m not Alone

Huffington Post Contributor Shira Hirschman Weiss  says:  The best Real Housewives franchise you’re probably are not watching is The Real Housewives of Auckland (RHOAKL)

Actress Lena Dunham Tweets:

tamaratattles says

This episode was hysterical. I loved Lea being on the show again. We need more Lea somehow even though it seems there will be no season two.

Both book launches were hysterical. Angela was responsible for all of the hilarity. She is reality TV gold.

We only have one episode left and I am still not sure of everyone’s names. It’s the cat lady whose name I can’t remember. Oh, it’s Ann. I am watching Ann cry to Gilda about misjudging her as a gold digger.

I can’t understand why they are not giving us another season of this comedy gold.

Americans watching ‘Real Housewives of Auckland‘ are shocked by the casual use of a racial slur which led to the show’s cancellation.
