Season 10 is better than season 9 but that’s not saying much. While its less volatile than last season this season is struggling for a storyline, so far it has been the Porsha show, featuring Kandi Burruss.
Last nights, episode began where it left out last week with Porsha and Kandi arguing with each one calling the other one a bitch and phoney. Porsha threatened to leave but stayed.
At one point, Porsha asked Eva, Have you ever been shady with Cynthia?” Eva replied “I don’t have a shady bone in my body.” ( more of Eva’s amnesia)
Eva then invited all the ladies to Tokyo for a bachelorette party.
Nene is stressed, its difficult being a caretaker. Gregg cuts is finger after attempting to trim the hedges sending them to the emergency ward. She and Gregg interviews a chef to introduce a healthy diet. A very grumpy Gregg initially dismissed nearly everything the chef offered. The Chef prepared the food for Gregg’s birthday celebration. Gregg’s sister acknowledged the stress Nene is under taking care of her brother. “‘I mostly keep strong,”’He is definitely a grouch. I’m so close to him, all the pressure is on me. I’m worn out like a freakin’ car tire Nene said.
Cynthia is introducing her new man Mike Hill to Eva, Kandi and Marlo. At the restaurant she brought a kitchen timer allowing each of the three minutes to ask questions of Mike. While Eva, asked him tame questions, Kandi and Marlo went there. Kandi asked, What was his go to move (sexually speaking) with Cynthia. Marlo wanted to know his credit score and if he ever had an STD? Comparisons to Cynthia’s “Will” was made. Mike reminded the ladies his name was Hill not Will.
Enterprising Kandi said she was gonna make money for the rumors about her having a sex dungeon into a Burlesque Variety show. Starring Shamari. The two met at an Lingerie Store to choose outfits for the store.
Porsha meets with her therapist. She is troubled about Dennis texting his ex. She has never really dealt with it and reminds her of her relationship with her ex husband.Her therapist advises her to slow down and ask Dennis questions.
In a conversation, Porsha tells Dennis about her marriage with her ex and how she wore a mask during her marriage. She feels by ignoring Dennis text’s to his ex’s, she has put the mask on. Dennis tells her they are on the same page.
Next week Tokyo
Last Week, One of Kandi Employees Put Porsha out of Todd Party (Set Up?)
We can’t have a Great Episode every week, this week is more of the filler.
Most of last nights episode was about Cynthia’s daughter Noelle, leaving the nest for Howard University in DC. A party was planned for Noelle but the reality of leaving home overwhelmed Noelle. It was Leon, Noelle’s dad aka the Enforcer who gave the final push calling an Uber for Noelle, party of one.
Monster Joyce is back and Todd isn’t having it. Its seems the Monster has been saying Kandi turned Todd into Lemonade. Basically saying Todd was just a Lemon before he met Kandi. Its just Joyce being monster and picking at Todd for fun and the two haven’t spoken for months. At the end of the day, Monster relented for now and praised Todd. She told him she appreciated how he has taken Riley as his own and hope he and Kandi are married for ever. (BTW-Todd is expanding the successful Old Lady Gang Restaurant from one to three locations)
Porsha and Dennis goes to the OG to for an ultrasound and for the first time they get to see their first collaboration, Dennis is overjoyed. The baby is fine and is projected to go to term, however, because of past complications, baby McKinney will enter the world via C-section.
Gregg Leakes tells all of his sons (and their are quite a few) that he is totally healed by God. He encourages all of his sons (Gregg has two sons who are 41 and they aren’t twins and his youngest son Brent 19) he encourage his sons to get tested regularly so they don’t get caught the way he did. Nene points out that while the doctors got rid of the colon cancer but there were a few y cells that could turn into something big. While the doctors recommended chemo, she is going to support her husbands wishes no to take the treatment.
Lady and Gents here comes Eva
Eva, without her criticizing mother,Eva is going shopping for a wedding gown
with Nene. But Nene brings Marlo Hampton because, Marlo’s thing is fashion. While Marlo and Eva haven’t been feeling each other this season Eva, goes along but wonders if this is Nene’s revenge for not inviting her to her wedding shower.
Marlo’s (Bitch-“O”-Matic) hit’s a nerve from the start. “I NEED TO SEE SOME FASHION!!!” she orders. INSISTING Eva should go Couture instead of the simple elegant style Eva wanted. When Eva came out in the number above, Marlo went full on (BOM) saying she wanted Eva, to take ten pounds off. Wimpy Eva, said nothing….. But Nene had her back . Nene to Marlo: “Bitch you need to fucking stop with your big ginormous ass up here eating cakes going to the Gas Station.” And trust me, Marlo has been eating something, cause her pants had unnatural creases. Nene, shut it down, Marlo was screaming in laughter. Nene is my girl and I appreciated her having my back, Eva said to camera. So thank you Nene for coming to my defense and reminding Marlo the circumference of her ass is huge.
Its Miss Bitch 2 U
Marlo Hampton betta watch her mouth. Last night we meet Shamari’s mom Dawn. Dawn is a tough ass broad who might cut a bitch. Shamari parents divorced when she was eight and her mother worked three jobs while going to school. During that time Shamari resented her mother for not being around. Today she under stands and appreciates her struggle in building a new life for the family. Her mom is a Labor and Delivery nurse practitioner and she’s very aware of what Marlo said about her.
What a difference a year makes. This time last season I was dreading reviewing #RHOA, with its sad storylines that went no where and while nothing spectacular has happened this season, it has been more entertaining then the silly scream fest of last season.
Kenya Moore’s pumps are hard to fill , love her or hate her she brought the drama. This season the drama has been assigned to Marlo Hampton’s size elevens. While I’m not a big fan of Marlo’s I’m bout ready for them to give her the damm peach. (almost) At this point, I don’t think anyone would miss Shamari Devoe or Tanya Sam.Eva Marcille is this seasons shady sniper with memory loss (she seems to forget her shade when people question her) is iffy. The big question is Nene Leakes, with Gregg’s illness, will she be back next year…. But that’s next year.
Last nights episode was good and smooth, a few bumps and a lot of light shade. The rain in Destin Florida, kept the girls inside.
Shamari’s fashion sense has been an issue since she burst out on scene. Marlo, who in her mind is the source of everything. Insisted Shamari wear something from her closet. Marlo is a beefy gal and Shamari is petite, while it looked nice it was like taking a drop cloth from a big SUV and putting on a Corolla.
Bitch Stole My Talent
A Nene Leakes Production
A talent show that pits two ladies together in the (who does it/wears it best vain)
First up, was the Fashionista extra Marlo Hampton vs that new comer Tanya Sam. Marlo came out in a romper and matching hat. But it was Tanya who took it all with a surprise multi fashion number. As Tanya was describing her outfit, she mentioned that she is doing a “high-low” look in terms of price point, with her sunglasses, which happen to be from Nene’s Swagg Boutique, representing for the “low. While there was no intentional shade, Nene wasn’t feeling it.
Next up, was America’s Top Model Eva Marcille and the woman Eva said had a Veteran Walk ,Cynthia Bailey. First this first, what the shit was Eva wearing, with her butt cheeks playing peeka boo and not in the nice way. It wasn’t even close, the Veteran body slammed her. ‘Thank you Eva for warming up the runway. I’m the next Top Model now. Let me call Tyra and tell her,’ said the Veteran.
Next singing: I really, really,realllley, like Kandi Burruss. You know where I’m going right! (Good!) Shamari sang “Eye of the Sparrow. Kandi (we love chu girl) picked some unrecognizable shit she wrote. There was no contest. None, no questions what so NEVAH!!! Shamari, kicked ass.
In the last round: Who is the best host. Nene or Porsha? Do I need to say anymore? Ok good.
Porsha is keeping her pregnancy under wraps. Her last pregnancy ended in a miscarriage and she really wants to tell her family before telling the housewives. The ladies split up later in the day. With Kandi, Shamari, and Eva doing flying Pilates and Nene, Tanya, Marlo and Cynthia getting massages . Porsha, went to bed went to with a headache.
Porsha knew the fact she wasn’t drinking would be an issue. So she poured coke and apple juice (yuck) in a bottle of Hennessy to throw the ladies off. She told them she was doing an alcohol cleanse. A few of the ladies questioned Porsha’s behavior. Her weight gain, snacking on pickles. Marlo blurted out Porsha’s pregnant. Some of the ladies agreed as they reviewed the day. Nene, confronted Porsha,and Porsha poured .
At dinner, a thrilled Nene kept her secret. While the ladies were having champagne Porsha drank her concoction in front of the girls.
Your a Bitch, they’re a Bitch, Every body is a Bitch Bitch Bitch……
Shamari wont let it go! Now she is pissed about Marlo going into her room and helping her with her fashion. (say it with me, BITCH!!!) Marlo didn’t come in there with a gun. Shamari, attempting to piss Marlo off, said Tanya helped her dress for dinner. Marlo comes back and said anyone at THAT table could have helped Shamari dress better than she does.
While Shamari tries to bring it in. Marlo turbo has kicked in . Shamari calls Marlo a bitch, not once but several times. Little petite Shamari ain’t no punk!!!! Its clear Marlo don’t scare her. Marlo asked Shamari to call her a bitch again! Shamari, happily called Marlo a bitch! Marlo zero to 60 in point something seconds said Ya Mama’s a bitch! Shamari says, NO your Mom’s a bitch! Shamari finally asking: ‘So we’re just gonna keep going back and forth like we’re in high school and call each other bitches?’
I’m sorry to say, I’m a juvenile! I’m just glad I threw a tissue instead of my drink can at the flat screen. Shamari took it well and earned some Big Azz Bonus points.. Take some notes Eva.
The dinner couldn’t end without Nene taking a shot at Tanya. Tawking about her sto. No weaves or wigs were pulled in the episode…
Kandi B was warned, but sugah pie honey bunch just couldn’t help herself. When she first learned of Porsha’s new man Dennis and his dating history. Todd told her to keep it to herself any random gossip never ends well.
Kandi B, quickly ignores Todd and has a question and answer moment with a chick Porsha beat up and Carmon . Where she learns a lot of stuff about Dennis. I think Carmon told her to keep the information local (between them) I’m not sure if Kandi is trying to be this seasons Sheree (the bone carrier) but the question is WHY is she so invested in Dennis and Porsha’s relationship? She’s doesn’t know Dennis and she and Porsha aren’t close BUT things are starting to improve between the two of them so them only conclusion is Kandi is just being Messy!
And so she continues …….She tells Marlo ,Cynthia and Nene. NENE advises Kandi not to tell, not to talk about it and then blabs to Porsha! ( of course Nene denies this) Porsha has hit the reset button on her friendship with Kandi.
Last nights episode began in Porsha and Dennis meeting Porsha’s mom, Diane. Last week Porsha met Dennis’s mom. This is all very interesting when you consider no one has proposed. While Dennis’s mother wasn’t feeling the relationship and talking about prenups and giving Porsha the side eye. Porsha’s mom is all in, taking about Porsha’s 37 year old eggs and saying that Porsha is glowing and looking good. Dennis tells Diane ” I wanna get married one time.
Shamari maybe an open book but hubby Ronnie isnt there for it. At Cynthia’s house she gave the ladies the 411 on their open marriage. the experiment that almost ended their marriage. First she tells his mother and then she tells the world. Ronnie is not happy with his wife sharing their news. The couple spends ten grand for their twin sons first birthday, including nearly a grand for the twins cake .
Nene and Gregg has hired a nutritionist. They learn that more cancers tumors have been found and the doctor recommends chemo. Nene and Gregg has heard many negative things about chemo therapy and is looking for alternatives.
Last night we meet Eva’s mom Michelle. To be fair , she comes off as a bitch. Its clear Eva doesn’t have Nene and Kandi cash, Eva working within a budget. She’s trying on gowns that cost more than her Jeep. They meet to pick out Eva’s wedding dress. But mama is very critical from the gown choices to the guest list. From her attitude, its her wedding not her daughter’s This breaks Eva, there are tears. The bitch doesn’t look up as her daughter is crying. Eva may be better served by excluding mama from the planning for her own sanity.
Eva has been bit shady of late, and I love her shade. Whats not lovely is her back bone., she doesn’t seem to have one. When called on it she runs, she spins. Kandi called her on it.
Cynitha is thinking about expanding her empire. She is considering opening a Wine Bar. She invites Nene, Porsha and Kandi. Kandi B, the resident millionare asks her does she know anything about wine? No. Does she have any experience running a bar? well…
Lets talk about what’s eating Porsha? She knows and she’s pissed. Kandi know it cames from Nene. Marlo and Porsha aren’t tight. and Cynitha it too busy facetiming with her man. Nene says the news didnt come from her BUT Nene has a problem. Porsha says Nene told her. Porsha says this is all messy and Dennis doesn’t like messy.
Tell me what you think?
Last week, Shamari told her mother in law and everyone else she and her hubby Ronnie (The Legend) had an open relationship. You know the ladies ran with it.
So far, so good in season 11. No major fights, and yes we are still missing Kenya.
Last night, we begin with Kandi and Todd at Dr Jackie’s office. Kandi has a couple of eggs and it seem they want another child, via surrogate. Early in the season daughter Riley said, they don’t need anymore children due to their busy scheduled. Todd, thinks they should have two surrogates , just in case. However, Dr Jackie brought him down from that cloud,when she told him a surrogate could cost any where from ninety to one hundred and thirty thousand. Kandi, said someone told her a surrogate would cost thirty five grand.
Eva, Eva, Eva is talking with her man Mike about the wedding, and Eva wants Nene to go shopping with her. She seems to have a lot of respect for Nene. Eva also wants security at this wedding. ( Could it be her Krazy baby daddy- Kevin McCall?)
“Porsha Meets Mama Gina”
Hey, hey, hey! Mama’s look out for their sons and I’m living for Mama Gina’s old school -“Ain’t nobody got TYME for this” shade! She was direct and couldn’t be shook.
We’ve heard though Kandi’s grapevine that Dennis McKinley moves quick with his women. So after a few months, Dennis introduces his lovely mother Gina to meet Porsha. Porsha, is trying to control her crazy azz giddyness. But Mama is intense. You could almost see the steam rising from the table.
Seconds after sitting down, Porsha gives Gina a birthday gift (“oh you shouldn’t have”) It’s a Louis Vuitton Wallet. It could have just been a piece of lettuce. Gina could care less about a Wallet or anything else. Dennis and Porsha failed at trying to change the conversation.
She wants to know whats going on. So are you two in love already? You aren’t moving to the alter too quick are you?‘ Has Mama Gina been down this road before? ‘So how do you all feel about prenups?‘ Porsha nearly choked on her wine. Let’s be clear, Mama Gina ain’t no joke. “Ain’t no mountain high”
“The Ladies Who Lunch”
Cynthia seems happy with her long distance man Mike Hill . They have their own hashtag #Chill She is having a BBQ with all the ladies and their friends.
Nene and Marlo arrives first. With our Marlo still being Extra Extra! Cynthia tells the other women that Eva has been spreading the rumor that she paid for her former boyfriend Will to date her.
On route to Cynthia House, is Porsha and her sister Lauren and Shamea Morton. Porsha had filled Shamea in on all the smack Eva talked about her the last time everyone hung out. Porsha tells a pregnant Shamea about stuff Eva has said about her and then tells her to be cool .
Eva, has been shady this season targeting Cynthia For weeks, I’ve been wondering would she go up against the heavyweights Nene and Marlo. Well tonight she’s hot air. Because she couldn’t take on Cynthia.
Marlo picked at her during a horrible game called “Pass the Peach” a southern version of “Truth or Dare” Calling Eva a liar. Why exactly are we a liar?“Eva shouted. “But you’re definitely extra, and sometimes, you’re extra when it’s not appropriate,” Eva replied. Marlo shot back, “Well, it’s not appropriate to be basic. You’re basic, darling.” leaving Nene to say ,Eva looked stupid. Don’t mess with the heavyweights.
The blogs weren’t overjoyed by the former newest cast member Shamari DeVoe last week. She came on to strong. Perhaps her biggest sin is she seems to have an overblown view of herself and her husband Ronnie (The Legend) DeVoe.
In her second week she is giving us a little Phaedra Parks, as she is planning an over the top birthday party for her twin sons who are turning one. We see her at bakery with Mother DeVoe (the mother of the Legend) where they are choosing a cake for the party. The shrewd, bakery employee suggested two cakes one for each child. $950.00 will that be cash or charge?
This week she gives us a little insecurity and vulnerability as she seems to want the approval of Mother DeVoe. Who is very protective of her high profile son. She seems to be very open, perhaps too open as she shares details of her husbands infidelity with Mother DeVoe and later with the ladies at Cynthia’s her choice to have an open marriage where she would explore relationships with women*
*Her hubby (The Legend) said she could only be with women.
So what do we think about Shamari and Eva?
Leave, your comments
See ya next Monday
Last week, we met the newest Shamari Devoe and the fans were less than impressed
On Twitter, #RHOA fans were asking for the return of Sheree, Kenya and Phaedra Parks
Takes a while to adjust to a new housewife, good or bad we have a relationship with the old housewife,so it takes a minute. Every now there an then, there is a housewife who’s is so likable, they immediately make you forget the old housewife. Ericka Jane and Lisa Renna over at #RHOBH and Dorinda Medley from #RHONY come to mind.
Shamari DeVoes entrance was so poorly received last night Tweeter was asking for Sheree Whitfield, Kenya Moore and where was PHAEDRA (Parks)!!!
Shamari DeVoe is married to the Legendary (so she reminds us several times ) Ronnie DeVoe, of New Edition and Bell, Biv, DeVoe, who at 51 hasn’t aged She met him on a one night stand, and they have been together 17 years. (He is 11 years older) She says, she is the one and only true wife to a legend so many other women are dying to get their hands on. She an Ronnie are going to become a power couple like Jay-Z and Beyonce.
She is also a member of the group Blaque and a mother of uber cute twin boys. She enters as a friend of Kandi’s. (She was at Riley’s baby shower) With the help of Kandi they are going to relaunch Blaque. Kandi wrote one their of the biggest hits.
I think the turn off factor,is she enters larger then life, being too extra. Several people on Twitter last night said, they wish they could fast forward her scenes. Hopefully, she will find her footing, soon.
The episode begins with the Porsha and the other newby, Eva Marcille at the gym. Eva is workin to keep her peach by being shady as hell. I noticed most of her shade is thrown Cynthia Baileys way. “When was the last time you’ve seen a model with a big booty?” One wonders, if she can hold her own against the heavyweights, Nene Leakes and Marlo Hampton. Its very clear she thinks Marlo is beneath her.
We go with Gregg and Nene to a cancer center in Houston. He ripps out my heart as he sings “Never give up and never give in” as he walks into the hospital. Gregg isn’t sure about undergoing chemo as treatment for his colon cancer and wants to consider alternative medicines. While they have successfully removed the cancer cells, there could be other cancerous cells floating around and the doctor believes chemo is the best treatment.
Shamari Shade and Ladies
Kandi and Porsha are civil, the two are laughing .(who know’s) Kandi invites all the ladies to Shamari concert. Even thought Shamari believes the WORLD knows her. Cynthia had to ask Kandi who she was and to point her out on stage. After the concert is over Cynthia invites everyone to a barbecue. Oops, I’m sorry a “Bailey Que”
When Shamari and Ronnie (The Legend) comes over to the table, Nene is clearly not feeling her. For some reason, Shamari asks Ronnie (The Legend) to critique Kandi’s performance with Xscape, which he does at the table in front of people he didn’t know. For the record, Kandi’s net worth is more than Double the Legendary DeVoe’s. So who’s schooling,who?
All About Dennis McKinley
Everybody talks about everybody. On a reality show, your words and expressions are memorialized in HD.
Carmon, Kandi’s bestie and former aid is now her insurance agent. The Old Lady Gang’s restaurant was a hit and now they are slowly becoming a chain with a second OLG restaurant opening soon. Carmon is meeting Kandi at the new site, to discuss business. But first things first, a lil gossip.
Across town, Porsha is meeting with her mom and still squealing’
The Topic for both groups is Dennis.
Kandi has never met Dennis. Atlanta is a small town and Kandi has heard things (can’t you just here Mama Joyce saying,” The Streets are talking’)
At the restaurant and another woman appears, Jami, who also works for Kandi ( A few years ago Porsha chased Jami out of a Christmas party and attacked Jami and later went into anger management-caught up?) Jami’s friend had dated Dennis for more than three years Kandi has “heard” Dennis falls quickly in love. He tattoos, his love interests names on his body. Jami says her friends face is on Dennis’s body. He likes to give Rolex watches. Dennis likes to impress his ladies by having someone cook for his ladies. Or has his sidepieces cook for his main lady. Jami says you better check his receipts………..
Across town, Porsha’s mom says Porsha’s glowing. Mom talks about Porsha’s big butt and the size of her new Rolex. Porsha tells her, Dennis is tattooed her name on his leg and plans to put her face on his back. He’s also having freshly prepared meatloaf sent straight to her door! “This is for real! Like he ain’t goin’ nowhere,” Porsha’s mom is practically in tears about how Porsha finally found the perfect man who has made her so happy and content.
At the new OLG restaurant. Jami said her friend found out Dennis was dating Porsha at the same time. Her friend found out while they were all in Africa at Shamea’s wedding. According to Kandi (who had never met Dennis) said Dennis was also dating other girls at the same time. Carmon tells Kandi to leave her mouth shut and “Don’t you say nothing.
Your Thoughts on the new housewife Shamari? and can Eva take Marlo Hampton in the shade wars……
Until Next Week
Last week, the Ladies Surprised Nene in Miami and Marlo Surprised Porsha
