Following the highly dramatic and somewhat draining Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion part 1 seemed almost dull in comparison though it did have some highlights. If anything, the looks of dagger exchanged between frenimies Nene and Kim, what seemed to be an issue with lighting, as well as the sharks swimming in the background, made for a bit of entertainment.
The reunion begins with Andy Cohen greeting the ladies and comparing hanging out with the housewives to being in a shark tank, though judging by how the reunion show went, a goldfish tank might have made a better, more accurate analogy.

So what can we expect tonight? Well on the first part of the reunion show, the ladies sit down with Andy Cohen to discuss their season of marital meltdowns, premarital panicking and due-date discrepancies. The reunion airs at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – The show also returns tonight with guests Cynthia Bailey and her husbandPeter Thomas.
In other Atlanta news, Nene Leakes and her BFF of the moment/only friend she has left on the show/her minion Cynthia Bailey did an interview with Zap2It during which they both revealed that their fellow housewives decided to form an alliance against them for the reunion show. And no, we are not making this up.
First, Cynthia discussed just how stressful the reunion shows really are. “The reunion show is a big deal and I guess it’s big to the viewers that watch the show, as well. I was very anxious to do it and get it over with,” said Cynthia.
Nene gave her take on the issue, comparing the reunion to a game of Survivor. “People try to form alliances,” NeNe said. “Which I never do. I just go in. It’s just a really difficult thing to sit there in front of the person that you said this or that and they’re asking you why you said that.”
So who is the leader of this so called alliance? According to Nene, it is Phaedra. “Phaedra [Parks] is hilarious to me,” said Nene. “She talked all this stuff about everybody, all us girls, but I seem to be the only one who has a problem with it. That is probably because she has called each girl up and made friendly with them, saying I’m sorry I didn’t mean to say that… So, Phaedra and all of them apologized to each other and of course they all want to be against me. It was sort of like me and Cynthia against them.”
And follower Cynthia made certain to cosign the comments of her leader friend Nene. “Yes, that would be accurate,” Cynthia said of the alliances. “I don’t know what’s going on with the other girls. I don’t really talk to them as much as I talk to NeNe. So, I think it’s pretty obvious that they were all together, you know, in terms of conversation. They all seemed to be fine with everything coming from them and then, you know, it was kind of like us versus them.”
On that note, below is a preview clip of tonight’s show -

UPDATE – Mediatakeout posted the below photo of Nene and Sheree taken before they became Bravo housewives.
Above is a preview of what is to come. Kim Zolciak talks about the role of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar in the life of her, and her kids. After doing many interviews during which she claimed she would never get back together with Big Poppa, it appears the two of them are once again back at it.
Perhaps things will be different this time as Big Poppa has put his home on the market. This is the same home he was sharing with his wife and kids.
Other hot topics to come in the reunion include a viewer question to Sheree Whitfield, asking her whether she is a lesbian. Andy also confronts Nene Leakes on her stripper past.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON PART 1 OF THE REUNION EPISODE?
Bravo had planned to film a two-part show this week that was due to air on the network on October 29 and November 5. The taping has now been rescheduled in light of the death of castmate Kandi Burruss’s ex-fiancé Ashley A.J. Jewell.
Dwight Eubanks confirmed this news to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The hairdresser and honorary “sixth housewife” said he didn’t expect AJ to be edited out of the upcoming episodes.
“I don’t see them editing him out. It’s television. It’s reality. We just have to prepare and get geared up for next year,” said Dwight.
He also added that he is uncertain of Kandi’s future on the show, saying: “She’s had such a dramatic year. She had her uncle die, too. She has her own career to focus on. Now her life has changed with her daughter and taking temporary custody of [AJ's] twins.”
Kandi has however previously voiced her desire to return for a 3rd season before the passing of AJ.
