Dr. Seuss drew ''Cross-Section of The World's Most Prosperous Department Store" for "Judge" magazine in 1929

Dr Seuss known for children drawings also created mauy racist drawings, this one went for auction in California last May.    The 1929 color illustration for “Judge” magazine depicts a blatantly racist scenario and uses a slur to describe black people. It’s being auctioned for a minimum bid of $20,000.    In the four-panel drawing titled ”Cross-Section of The World’s Most Prosperous Department Store,” the artist depicts scenarios in which rich men can purchase items to make their lives more difficult. Dr. Seuss’ history of creating offensive caricatures isn’t a secret. His World War II depictions of Japanese people have drawn criticism for their portrayal of stereotypicial physical features and behaviors

There was a time in America when a TV couple like the Ricardo’s could not sleep in the same bed.     A time when different races couldn’t touch in the cinema and some people liked it that way.

First the Mayor and then the Vice Mayor ,Warren Allen  If you had to choose one of the Scandal’s for the foundation  of a Soap or Reality TV Show its Warren!    Delia Chacon, 45, said Warren created an atmosphere of “quid pro quo sexual harassment” between Aug. 26, 2013, and June 8 of this year.     Unlike Johnson, Warren’s  accuser Chacon had details, even went to his place in Oroville and knows many many  details about the Vice Mayor  and has accompanied Warren on many many trips.    Bravo and Lifetime could bring life to this story.

We’ve covered the Real Housewives of Atlanta for four seasons.  Good or bad, fans know Nene Leaks is not the one. She can chop up any challenger with her tongue.  But in Puerto Rico Claudia Jordan took down the Queen and didn’t break a sweat, leaving the sharp tongued Queen dizzy.  Within minutes the social media exploded, clips of the fight was repeated all over the country.  Fights broke out on Twitter and on You Tube.

Fans of Nene said she won, others said she was knocked out.     There are some who believe the Queen was responsible for Jordan’s exit. What ever happened.  Puerto Read Co was the number one story of the year

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!

AND DA SLIPPING OF THE TOUNGE CONTINUES

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

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Reunion Part 2: “The Men and Patrica”


“Pow”

Somebody turned up the dial on Part 2.  The Housewives are heating up and its getting nasty (just the way we like um)  Last night the men and Patrica had their say.   Most of the fireworks were between Kenya and Nene.   We didn’t hear nary a peep out the Claudia.  But Patrica made his/her mark.    Last week Porsha was the weakest link, Last Night it was Cynthia!


Bittersweet

Kandi is perhaps the most real of the housewives.  She is also the one that make me crazy. Her relationship, with her mother, Todd and her children often makes me scream at the set.  But what she is, is honest.

Kandi and Phaedra were friend long before they signed a contract with Bravo.  They at one time dated or saw the same man.

With the crises with Apollo and her marriage, Phaedra wanted to see and hear from her gurl.  She like a lot of us assuming Kandi would call and check on her.    What she didn’t know that Kandi had a lot of drama in her own life.    However there are times when you need to tell a friend, I am down and out and I need some company. What we know of the TV Phaedra is ,she is not one to share her private life.   Kandi is just the opposite. the mailman knows of her troubles.

The downside of being on reality TV, is you get see and hear to ones innermost thoughts via the confessional.    Kandi, hearing she has neglected her friend, apologized and asked Phaedra if their friendship is okay?  Phaedra said yes,and continued to complain about Kandi in the confessionals.    For Kandi, a lot of the trust is gone.  She has always had Phaedra’ back and feels betrayed. Kandi got very emotional, She cried. “I said I wouldn’t do this,” she said. “I’m so mad at myself right now.”  “At the end of the day, at some point, there was some sort of tension,” Phaedra said.

You can find wrong on both sides. Clearly there is a lot of love there.  But can their friendship survive, Reality TV?


Nene Loses Detroit!

Flashback a year ago.  Season 6 Reunion.

 Nene and Kenya both bet each other that they would donate $20,000 to Detroit Public Schools at last year’s reunion.  Kenya donated the money Nene did not!   And tells  Andy she’ll do it when she’s ready!   Then she tries to blame Kenya .   Kenya is bad because she posted the check on social media.

“That really gets under my skin,” Kenya said. “Why not cut the kids a check? That speaks to your character. You’re making this about some bullcrap… She has no excuse. I don’t think she will ever write the check.” “You’re rotten to the core,” Kenya said.

Whatever happen to do it for the children EPIC FAIL NENE!


A Round of Applause for RHOA Fan Kylie from

Morrisville ,Pennsylvania

Yall know that Miss Cynthia Bailey has found her voice!  This season she has been down right nasty, shady in da dark!

A married woman, Cynthia knows  that airing out someone else’s marriage, is far from okay.  After all she is married to Patrica and she’s is determine to defend her actions and telling everyone she knows about Apollo’s text that Phaedra is having an affair with some African guy named Chocolate.

Andy reads:  Cynthia!  Kylie from Morrisville, Pennsylvania writes: What made you think those texts from Apollo were real, when he went to jail for doctoring paper work? 

Kylie drops imaginary mike and walks off stage!


The Men!

Patrica’s Point

Gregg Leaks Built in Swag

Todd still has a beard

They call him Uncle Ben, LuPeter , and some of us call him Patrica!

Peter Thomas  been routinely criticized about being in (women’s’) business. Refusing to mince words, he said he didn’t give a flying fuck about what folks say.  (Patrica!, that’s not lady like!)  “I’m always going to say what I want to say when I want to say it.”

Last season Nene called him a bitch for being in “Woman’s” business.  Patrica tried to get Nene to respond but Nene had nothing to say But her man Gregg did.  “I’m a man’s man. .I work on swag. I don’t work on women’s business.”


Kenya Needs To Thank Gregg Leaks for Saving her from Nene

Its clear to me that Kenya didn’t watch earlier seasons of RHOA.   If she did, she would know, if you get too close (meaning the truth) Nene will jump on you.  Perhaps she should have called Kim Zolciak.

This was a spillover.   Kenya and Phaedra were once again circling the drain.  Whore….(yes, yawn).

Phaedra said when she met Kenya.  Kenya was flirting with Apollo, suggesting threesomes (who can forget that!) and revisits the tapes.

Kenya, sort of dismisses her actions by saying everyone flirts.  Evan Nene flirting with Peter. Nene who had been relatively calm (for Nene) went from 200 to deftcon five ( Terror Alert)  with a voice that could be heard in Guam.  “Don’t go there! Ask Peter! Don’t do that in front of her husband.” NeNe, who had stayed relatively quite throughout the episode, spoke up. She yelled at Kenya, “Hold on, let me tell you something, you will not sit here and disrespect me and my husband,” she screamed on the top her lungs.

She even threw gal pal Phaedra under the bus ( a bit)

 “THIS AIN’T PHAEDRA! THIS AIN’T PHAEDRA!” This is Nene “I SAID WHAT I SAID”

 Nene was on the edge of her seat, looking like she was about to pounce on Kenya.  The man with Swag, Gregg saved her life. Gregg ,had to pull her back into her seat before things got real ugly!   Something tells me, a pissed Nene punches like a man.

See ya next week

PS… Don’t cha just love it when Andy Cohen giggles behind the cards….

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Season 7 part one ” Will someone please give Porsha her Peach Back !”


By CityFella,

Last night’ Reunion was a bit tame. However the ladies looked good. Kandi was busting out all ovah. Nene had an excellent hair day. Claudia had a questionable large chain ( Uptown Thug Housewife) and Cynthia went a bit drag queen with da hair, if one wig is good, then two wigs……….

Host Andy Cohen brought quite a bit of shade of us own..  Taking a swipe at Cynthia’s hair (You look like Diana Ross from Mahogany)  To revisiting Sheree’s house….   Andy to Nene. So Nene we here your bought a big new house, is it like chateau Sheree’s?  Nene, mild laughter, no…Sheree probably  haven’t moved in yet…

More shade via Bravo.  A fake commercial for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta Wig Collection., We all  know Nene had a bad season, and her laugh was a bit pained.

Did anyone miss Demetria McKinney?


 

Cumbaya is Ovah

With one exception, old patterns, tired discussions returned. Who’ a whore, Phaedra hasn’t visited Apollo. Kandi is still troubled by Phaedra’s statement and the relationship between Phaedra and Nene. They revisited the reunion fight between Kenya and Porsha. Porsha says she’ll never apologize to Kenya for physically attacking her because she doesn’t think she deserves an apology and at the time she felt threatened by Kenya’s scepter-wielding

Andy brings up the pretty frightening garage encounter just before Apollo reported to the jail in Kentucky and asks if Apollo has ever been abusive, which Phaedra says they won’t be discussing.

The one exception was Kenya, who was cool and relatively quiet.


Porsha

Last year Porsha lost her Peach(demoted) after physically attacking Kenya Moore.  She didn’t come out with the six cast members. When she did ,she went out of her way to create drama as if to say.  It seemed she hit the room screaming.  There were more than one occasion where she didn’t seem to make sense.     Cynthia questioned her about a statement she made to Phaedra, suggesting her husband sleeping around. Porsha, response, I was talking alone to Phaedra, this wasn’t something I was spreading around town……..     That’s our Porsha, waiting for the train to pick her up on the underground railroad..Claudia said at one point that she doesn’t know what Porsha’s talents are?


Kandi on point

The best interaction last night was between Nene and Kandi.

Nene seemed disengaged for the most part.  Nene explained her relationship with Phaedra. There bond was divorce. Nene said how hurt her son was when Gregg left the house and the two of them never discussed Kandi .She said when she was going through the Divorce, she didn’t want to talk about it , she  wanted some one to check up on her.   She was a Rock to Phaedra.

BUT KANDI CAME ROARING BACK…….  You were also a rock for Cynthia,  but at the end of the day you were copying and pasting her text  messages to us. If you are a best friend to her your not supposed to share that information . She confied in you not knowing you would do that.     Nene tried to explane her actions but  failed in an epic way.  I was trying to show you the kind a friend that she(Cynthia) was.  I was down with this girl    Kandi, so what you’ve shown us is,, you will blast a person with personal information if you are no longer friends.     Kandi said, she didn’t hate Nene, but she does hate her “ superior stank ass attitude”   But when your fun, your funny I love it.   Cant argue with that!  

RHOA: Season 7 Finale “The Housewives are alright*


  • Until the Reunion….

By CityFella,

With Nene in New York preparing for her Broadway debut.  There is calm in the ATL, with relatively little drama.

With one exception, Patrica (Peter) Thomas is trying to stir up some dust.  Who knew he had legs like that?

We’ll get back to Patrica later.


Buckhead resident Phaedra parks is making cookies with her son’s.  She is also hemming and hawing about taking her sons to visit there father in prison.   She is making very trivial excuses why she isn’t visiting him. Whether I take him, her oldest son Ayden or not, someone is going to be unhappy. Ayden may resent me for bringing him or not bringing him. It’s a no-win situation.”  “He’s is at a place that doesn’t have a nursery”  and if he goes the the restroom etc.    Get a grip Phaedra its a prison not a mall.  It has a park!


Monster Joyce is throwing a housewarming, she has personally invited Todd.  Todd needs a drink before the festivities.   At the dinner, Monster apologized to Todd.  She has made mean and nasty comments about his family.  Todd’s mother Sharon, died late last year.

“If I said something to offend you or your mother, I am sorry,” “And anything I’ve said against your mother, it was something someone told me. It was nothing I had ever made up. My biggest problem was repeating someone had told me. You should not do that. Because I’m a better person than that.”   

The apology was like tossing a cup of gasoline unto a raging fire.   Todd wasn’t feeling it.

Kandi attempted to brighten the moment by announcing , Todd’s show was picked up for second season

the crowd responded with a what evah applause.   Kandi went on to say that she would move out to LA a few months.  Clearly this was a real surprise, especially to her daughter Riley.


Cynthia and Patrica (Peter) is closing down Bar One, and moving it  Downtown

The New Bar One Location

Patrica doesn’t have the best track record and fan’s remember he agreed to consult his wife before expenditures. (Code word -her Money) . As they arrive at the new place, Peter takes Cynthia next door to show her the space he’s leasing for a coffee shop. He’d never mentioned it to her, and only says it “happened fast.”   He leased it already $1200 a month and its gonna be a coffee shop with his name”Peter’s Brew” on it AND he has a partner!   Shucky, Ducky, Ducky, and SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE.

You can see the shock on Cynthia face and before she could really get into him, he is rescued by a Prison phone call.

Its Apollo…… who can forget Apollo.   He’s been in da big house for six weeks and he misses his chillen. Other family members have visited, he says he brother has tried to bring the kids but Phaedra wont let him. Phaedra claims that she simply can’t just take her children to visit because there are rules.

Hey Phaedra These are The Rules

Be Prepared

You should be familiar with all visiting rules, regulations, and procedures before your visit.

Dress Code
Wear clothing that is appropriate for a large gathering of men, women, and young children. Wearing inappropriate clothing (such as provocative or revealing clothes) may result in your being denied visitation.

The following items are NOT permitted:

  • revealing shorts
  • sundresses
  • halter tops
  • bathing suits
  • see-through garments of any type
  • crop tops
  • low-cut blouses or dresses
  • leotards
  • spandex
  • miniskirts
  • backless tops
  • hats or caps
  • sleeveless garments
  • skirts two inches or more above the knee
  • dresses or skirts with a high-cut split in the back, front, or side
  • clothing that looks like inmate clothing (khaki or green military-type clothing)
  • Visiting Duration
By law, an inmate gets at least four hours of visiting time per month but usually the prison can provide more. However, the Warden can restrict the length of visits or the number of people who can visit at once, to avoid overcrowding in the visiting room.
General Behavior
Because many people are usually visiting, it is important visits are quiet, orderly, and dignified. The visiting room officer can require you to leave if either you or the inmate is not acting appropriately.
Physical Contact
In most cases, handshakes, hugs, and kisses (in good taste) are allowed at the beginning and end of a visit. Staff may limit contact for security reasons (to prevent people from trying to introduce contraband) and to keep the visiting area orderly. The Federal Bureau of Prisons does not permit conjugal visits.
Note:  A child under 16 must have the approval of a parent or guardian approve their placement on the visiting list.

Perhaps Patrica/Peter was trying to avoid his wife, but he seemed happy to talk/gossip. He  asks Apollo if he is aware that Phaedra filed for divorce.   Cynthia already burned by Apollo’s Chocolate mystery decided to stay quiet this time.


Phaedra was the lone housewife who called Nene and wished her well.   No one flew to see her on opening night.  Perhaps, she forgot to mail those tickets promised to the ladies.

No backstage visits, Nene….

The ladies show up for Kenya Moore’s screening of her sitcom pilot “Life Twirls On.”  Kenya went all out ,creating a  a wedding theme including a cake ,harpists, dancers, rice, custom drinks make for each the women)

Then Kenya shows up in a wedding dress

.

“This is like the Twilight Zone,”Porsha

Cynthia “Is there an African prince somewhere?

Demetria was at the party, you remember Demetria, will you remember her two years from now, how about one year?

The screening was a hit and ladies had a good time .“Girls who … would never be in the same room together are laughing and having fun,” Kenya Moore reflects in the end. “It’s just a testament to forgiveness.”

Hold on to the dream Kenya. The Reunion shoot is only 12 hours.


Last Week Claudia Played Mean Housewife, and Went After Nene

https://sacratomatovillepost.com/2015/04/12/rhoa-season-7-episode-21-chasing-nay-nay/

RHOA: Season 7 Episode 21 “Chasing Nay Nay”


In this installment of RHOA we learned…. Nene was still Nene, Phaedra still over the top, Kandi wants to support her husband.  We learned no one would ever confuse Cynthia Bailey acting ability with Viola Davis. Kenya is a peacemaker and Claudia is a mean girl bitch and Bravo is stretching out these last couple of episodes until the reunion.


She’s a Big Girl Without a Bad Jamaican Accent

The installment begin with Cynthia’s beautiful daughter Noelle. Who is trying on very expensive dresses  for her first Homecoming, Kenya is there to show her how to make an entrance.  Note: nothing that teenager was wearing came from Sears.

Speaking of Bad Jamaica accents, Cynthia needs help with hers for her character on Kenya’s ” Life Twirls On” pilot and consults her husband, Jamaican-born Peter Thomas.  Now if she can get help with her Barnum and Bailey make up.


Nene Takes Broadway

This was a small endearing clip, with Gregg and their son Brice, at Sardi’s restaurant in NYC.  The Leaks are clearly not in the ATL and Gregg doesn’t want Brice on his own in the Big Apple, today this block, tomorrow maybe other block.  Gregg is Nene’ foundation, and perhaps he is the only person in the world, she will listen to.


Will They or Wont They? 

Kandi met Todd Tucker while they were both in South Africa on Season Five of RHOA.  He was working in production at the time. Most of his work takes place in LA or NYC.  Something Kandi (who hates leaving Atlanta) knew.

Perhaps, she thought they would work together on her projects in Atlanta.  Todd has a career, he is currently one of the Executive Producers of “Hollywood Diva’s which was just picked up for a second season which is based in LA. He has a production company based in LA and has quite the resume.

Kandi, has an agenda, she wants a child, and a family in Atlanta. She could move to LA, but her business is her.  Being raised by a single parent, he is somewhat reluctant o have a child.  She isn’t getting the attention (sex) and questions if they will make the first years anniversary.


Phaedra Loves A Grand Entrance 

My boys miss their father,” said Phaedra Parks, “I want to give my sons and others strong black role models.”  She organized a group  “Save Our Sons” rally to empower and encourage boys and fathers to be better men by having successful African-American leaders mentor them.

Phaedra had the wives serve lunch at the rally – the first time they had all been together with Nene since she stormed out of the counseling session.

From ballet dancers, to men carrying her son in a raised chair, Ms Parks loves an entrance and last night was no different, she has a marching band play her in.  Now what the marching band has to do with empowerment? I guess you’ll have to ask Ms Parks.   She marched.


“The Main Event”

 Messy Claudia

I have a love and hate relationship with Nene.  I would love to be her at a party.  She can be charming, she’s always funny.  Having said that, I would look for her at a party, but I would not invite her to a party.  Its too risky, and she lift it or tear it down.

I could rehash her short comings but I wont,we all know them too well.

She and Gregg flew from New York to support Phaedra.  Phaedra wanted the ladies to serve food to the men at the event..  From the moment Nene stepped in Claudia was looking to start some mess. Claudia shared the progress the ladies made after she left . ( I caught it)   When asked about the video the ladies made for her in the Philippines, Nene was being Nene said it was phony.   (Kandi warned them)

Claudia has been one of my favorites this season, but last night she lost points.     She looked at Nene side eyed as she went in and went after Nene.     As Porsha served, (Kandi and Kenya wasn’t there)  Claudia and Cynthia went after Nene.  Forget the food, Claudia wanted world important answers to her question and she wanted them now. To her credit, Nene kept Nay Nay under wraps    Would have been nice if Nene slapped her with a plate of chicken.   Voices were raised, the audience could clearly hear the commotion. Judge Mathis was speaking.   Claudia chased Nene, who kept Nay Nay under wraps.   But she took the high road and left, with Claudia prepared to chase her through the hall way, but Kenya arriving late, Kenya , YES KENYA MOORE!!!! grabbed Claudia as to say, “Stop this foolishness”  

Next week is the last show before the reunion

(Early Reports says this reunion  is calm no one hit and no hair was pulled. If you want and need Ratchet, catch Beverly Hills, (you know its bad when Brandi says fuck you to Andy Cohen)  Everyone has dropped the F bomb accept Yolanda and Vanderpump (so far) part 3 wraps this Tuesday)

Last Week

This may the only DRAMA FREE episode in the history of RHOA

https://sacratomatovillepost.com/2015/04/06/rhoa-season-7-episode-20-drama-free-housewives/

RHOA: Season 7 Episode 19 ” A Refreshing Drama Detox”


This is going to be one of the shortest reviews I have ever written for the RHO franchise.

We turn on the housewives for drama, but the screaming the constant circling of the drain ( no resolution) has grown old.      The episode begins at the airport with a very reluctant Phaedra who sat in her car.  Remember she wasn’t at the session with Dr. Jeff.

There were no flare ups on the 18+ hour flight to the Philippines.

At the resort Claudia saved the largest suite for Phaedra.

During a small meal Claudia share her divorce with Phaedra.  A guarded Phaedra wasn’t ready to share her story with someone she wasn’t close with,  uncharacteristically cried.

Kandi wanted it closure with Phaedra as it seems everybody STILL thinks there is a problem to the two of them.  Phaedra was still pledge her allegiance to Nene who wasn’t cleared by her doctor to travel  that distance because of blood clots.

We get to see Nene learning her lines for her Broadway debut as the wicked stepmother in Cinderella.

The atmosphere was calm, very little of the cattiness were grown used to . Many of the ladies attributed  it to Nene’s absence.

Claudia the Facilitator 

At a meeting, Claudia broke the groups up and had people sit next to in some cases their nemeses.  The purpose of the meeting was the close some of the on going squbbles .

It make have taken a broken glass, but Claudia maintained order.  With Phaedra and Kenya agreeing to talk.

The show, short on story line, was refreshing, the ladies were laughing and genuinely have fun.

While things are look mild for next week, we are talking about the Housewives
