I was pretty excited to hear the news that Kim Zolciak will make an official return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, so I was looking forward to her Watch What Happens Live appearance- especially after her season finale confrontation with Kenya Moore. I wanted to see Kim reading Kenya and dodging questions from Andy Cohen about whether or not she got a nose job, but unfortunately Kim will not be on the episode tonight.
I don’t blame her though, Kim has a very legitimate reason for skipping this public appearance. Her son Kash was bitten by a dog and he had to go to the hospital.
We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
Before this Real Housewives of Atlanta season started, I felt like the show had the right cast. I couldn’t see any of these ladies getting the boot, especially Phaedra Parks. She’s a shade-throwing assassin, she has the cutest kids, she got burned by her husband, she wears racy outfits, she’s charitable. Basically she has all of the elements that make for a compelling Housewife, but am I the only one who feels like this four part reunion is her swan song?
She told some major lies this year and didn’t have to own any of her actions the entire season since Porsha Williams covered for her the entire time. Phaedra owes her a muffin basket or something to convey her gratitude. Nevertheless, now that all of the episodes have aired, Andy Cohen and her costars will be pushing Phaedra to present some receipts. Unfortunately, it does not seem like she actually has any and she might be totally screwed.
Part one of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta began with a preclude of the explosive drama at the end … which left me feeling like ‘yada, yada, yada… ‘ about everything else and wishing I could fast forward through the “Many Wigs Of Phaedra Parks” to just get to the crying, sobbing, hysterical meltdowns. In the meantime everybody is “sitting on ready” as they bicker about African princes, Apollo and Kenya Moore, and My Mansion’s better than your mansion…
Haven’t we already talked about all of this? Does time stand still in RHOA land?
AnywayAndy Cohen stuffed our Easter Baskets with golden eggs from rich Africans, construction refuge from Moore Manor and Chateau Sheree, and the easter grass was shredded legal documents. And just to be clear Porsha Williams reunion look is channeling Halle Berry, not Kandi Burruss circa season 2.
Just like a lot of the viewers, Cynthia Bailey was also surprised that Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak got into it during the Real Housewives of Atlanta season finale. Obviously Kim wasn’t going to waste her time by fading into the background of the episode, but it just seemed so random for her to have any sort of conversation with Kenya.
I expected to see Cynthia and Peter Thomas talking at Sheree Whitfield’s housewarming party just because Peter has been present at every big event this season and I expected the two of them to get some sort of closure during the last episode of the season.
I am one of the few people who fall into the rare cross section of Real Housewives of Atlantaviewers who are both Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore fans. I know that they cannot stand each other and I should probably pick a side, but I just think that they are both so shady and entertaining.
After two years of shading each other’s Atlanta mansions, I would have assumed that they were going to go in on each other at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party, but Kim Zolciak randomly showed up and came for Kenya- hard. Now I’m just hoping that the real estate-related shade has come to an end. I’m ready for a new story line.
