Yikes. We all speculate on whether reality shows are scripted or completely fake. Of course, no one ever comes out and says a show isn't legit…especially if it's the star of the show! I guess Dave Hester from Storage Wars didn't get that memo.
The star of the A&E hit has caused lots of drama with the network after rumors started swirling that he was saying the show isn't what it seems to viewers. What? Next, I'm going to hear that Si's beard on Duck Dynasty isn't real. I just don't know how much more of these crazy rumors I can take!
The show begins with Chantal and Takari being ambushed by the therapist. Takari is in tears, and Chantal reminds her mother that while she provided everything for her girls, it was their grandmother who served as the mother figure. Jackie doesn't want to hear any of it. Chantal wants her mother to take responsibility for their past relationships, but Jackie is totally on the defensive. She thinks her daughters are being mean and throwing false accusations at her. The girls leave after Jackie refuses to shoulder any of the blame for their relationship troubles. Doug tries to placate the girls in the driveway, but they are both over trying to make things work with someone who won't acknowledge any mistakes. Back inside, Jackie apologizes to the therapist for having to listen to her disrespectful daughters spew lies. The therapist is smart enough to know that she just needs to keep her mouth shut. Could Jackie be any more delusional?
Brooke is waiting on Gloria Govan to meet her for lunch when she reads that Matt Barnes is in trouble with the law for his multiple traffic violations. She calls Gloria who won't be able to make it to lunch…which I guess is a good thing given that there's a half-eaten pizza in front of Brooke. She clearly wasn't waiting.
I don't know if we should be excited or scared that the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta are back in full force. Of course, I make that statement while cowering behind my sofa. There is a lot of change going on with the ladies, and there is a bunch of drama happening with the original cast. With NeNe Leakes destined for Hollywood and Kim Zolciak wanting to fade into obscurity by actually being a housewife, I don't even know where to begin.
There has been a lot of speculation about what is going on with the ladies in the peach state. While some (okay, one) of the women has moved on from reality television (although she's happy to cause drama and pick up her check when she's not acting on a new sitcom), the others want to hold on to their Bravo fame with every inch of their manicured claws. That said, what's to become of Kim who has distanced herself from cast members while focusing on her spin-off career? That, my friends, is the million dollar question…and the answer will make housewives' history!
