An insider told People, “It is Kim who is taking it the hardest,” adding, “Monty knew what was happening. He was prepared.” Am I the only one who thinks it is insensitive to Brooketo claim that Kim is struggling the most?
Kim may be way too normal for reality TV; she may not be cut-out for RHOA, but she’s certainly a smart, classy, and professionally successful lady whose reputation in the industry speaks for itself. Ms. Beauty Queen on Bathsalts Krayonce WISHES she had an IMDB page that featured something from this decade (other than Real Housewives Of Atlanta). Kim is correct – Kenya belongs at the kiddie table until she’s able to conduct herself like a grownup, not an 8-year-old forced into an educational trip to DC to meet with congresswomen.
Kim’s comments hit Krayonce right in her butt-hurt stallion booty.
Hey! Isn’t it bad manners to start this show 15 minutes late? Oh well. It’s time to learn more about etiquette (or lack thereof) from the self-proclaimed queens of manners, the Real Housewives of Potomac! So far this season, we’ve learned that when the cameras start rolling, all bets are off with so-called friends. Like in the case of Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger, who claimed to be pretty good buds before the show taped, but are now at each others’ throats over who-sat-where-in-a-damn-booth. Or Gizelle and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, whose argument at the clam boil went to level 10 over some cabinet-banging and dragging “the help” upstairs. (Both of these arguments came to us courtesy of Karen and Charrisse, in my opinion, with Gizelle getting caught in the cross-wigs.) What happened to a few episodes of “getting to know you” housewifery fluff before all hell breaks loose? And where are the gorgeous homes and high class lifestyles of which we were foretold!? <wipes tear> In short, Dear Bravo: Where Are The Wives You Promised Us!?!?
Alas, we are left with this bunch. But the introduction of younger, less etiquette-obsessed Ashley Darbymay just breathe new life into what is already becoming a stale manners-off among this group of confused socialite wannabees. And tonight’s episode does thankfully fill in some much-needed gaps of real backstory on our key players. First we begin with Katie Rost, who’s meeting with Washington Life Magazine to talk about how her modeling career has changed since she’s become a mother. She’s not getting many modeling jobs these days, so she’s using her “good looks and charm” to raise money for charities, specifically for her family’s Rost Foundation – of which she’s director. Coming from a legacy of philanthropic work within her family, Katie has big shoes to fill. She’s got it all, except a husband, as the Magazine rep she’s meeting with so kindly points out. (Did we just get transported back to 1954?)
When Andy Cohen asked Kenya about her interaction with Kim, she admitted, “First of all, I watched that back and I was mortified. I think it was a big mistake for me to pull her chair. It was uncalled for. It was absolutely unacceptable and I do apologize for that behavior. I was in the moment. I was just fed up with the B.S. It’s something that happened but I’m really actually very ashamed of that.”
Robyn is not letting Ashley sit with her at the cool kids table. She shares, “Ashley seemed very pressed to be our friend, but instead of making us like her, she just looked thirsty! If first impressions are really lasting impressions, then Ashley will NEVER be taken seriously by me! I mean, really, what grown woman humps another grown woman at a charity event, especially upon meeting for the first time? I thought a horny poodle had attacked me and wouldn’t let go. She really took me back to my college days at parties when some girls would have way too much to drink and act like fools. I guess you could say there was one good thing about being humped by Ashley – she made me feel like a kid again! Awkward introduction and all, I haven’t written the horny poodle off completely.”
After today I do not want to hear the words “beatless brunch” for a month. Or at least a week. Mmkay? Sheree Whitfield takes her turn touching on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta – and shares her own thoughts on the beatless brunch.
Sheree didn’t care that Kim Fields asked the ladies to come without their makeup on since she doesn’t wear much anyway – and it saved her some coins! Winning! “I don’t think Kim was being shady. I didn’t take issue with the brunch, because I normally do not wear makeup during my day-to-day activities. As a matter of fact, I’ve never really worn makeup prior to being on TV.”
This week’s comings and goings include the series premieres of Preachersof Atlanta and Rattled and the season finales of Project Runway Junior and Work Out New York. Note: tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta is 75 minutes, which shifts the night’s schedule by 15 minutes.

Even though she ghosted from the dance competition on this week’s episode of Dance Moms, I don’t think Abby Lee Miller is going anywhere anytime soon. Of course, by “anywhere” I mean “the clink.” The unhinged reality star is facing up to five years and five million dollars in fines as she’s accused of hiding almost $800,000 in earnings from the show during her 2010 bankruptcy.
As the drama (and Abby’s mental breakdown) plays out on Lifetime, her legal team is working behind the scenes to buy more time in her fraud proceedings. On Wednesday, Abby’s lawyers filed a request for an extension in order to extend the deadline for their pretrial motions. This is the third delay in Abby’s trial.
