To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlantastarted off with a bang would be a total lie. Sure, there is a lot of talk about Kenya Moore’s surprise marriage, but everyone who follows Real Housewivesin the off-season already knew about that, so it wasn’t at all shocking by the time the first episode aired.
On the bright side, Cynthia Bailey has moved out of that “Will they or won’t they get back together?” phase of her divorce and she is back in the dating pool. It isn’t the most exciting story line at this point, but I can’t help loving Cynthia and rooting for her. Even so, I can’t wait for things to intensify next episode when Kim Zolciakreturns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.
I’ll tell you what is about the most disappointing thing that could ever happen on a Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode – that I did not get to experience Sheree Whitfield Vs. Party Planner: The Resurrection. I was all excited for a revival of the infamous “Who gon’ check me boo?” moment (like basically my favorite real Housewives moment ever), and instead I got a lackluster mini-fit of Sheree tearing off her mic and acting like a normal person under stress. Let’s just call this what it is – unacceptable!
See, I depend on Sheree to act like, well, Sheree. Sheree of yore, that is. Like “Budget, what’s that?!” This new evolved, life-coached Sheree, who is essentially your average busy-body after an extra pumpkin spice latte and behaves strangely mature-ish (for her), is a real snooze.
“My hope is through sharing this part of my life it can help empower others to face their past, learn from it, and heal from it,” says Sheree. “I want to continue to live in my truth and live my best life.”
Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey is stranded at the lake all by herself with no one but the leaves to talk to. If it sounds like the start of a bad – very bad – horror movie where a desperate, lonely woman turns to the wrong kind of guy, you’re right! After a relaxing bath, Cynthia finds herself on a date where she is blindfolded and wandering the dark and creepy hallways of a chicken farm while getting her photo taken by Malcolm X’s long-lost twin, Evan.
Sheree delivers some joyous news for She by Sheree fans. “I am currently working on revamping She by Shereé. The line will be more of what I call “lifestyle” apparel, with fashionable and comfortable pieces that can take you from gym to lunch or running errands with a few pieces you can carry into a night out on the town. In today’s society, women are strong and powerful but are looking for comfortable, cute, quality pieces because the women of today are also very busy! We juggle and balance so much with so little downtime.”
I have been patiently waiting for my girl Sheree Whitfield to find her match.For the longest time, I was rooting for her to get back with Bob Whitfield, but after the past with domestic violence came to light, no one is hoping for that reconciliation. Now Sheree is finally in a new relationship and it’s with someone who is incarcerated – something that has weirdly become a Real Housewives staple. One person who is very familiar with that situation is Sheree’s former RHOA costar Phaedra Parks, who has been dropped as a Housewife following the epic revelation from the Season 9 reunion.
It’s the best time of the year: Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on television. Thank God! It has been way too long since that epic Season 9 four part reunion. I need to see what these women are up to.
Aside from new episodes, the ATL ladies are out and about promoting the show, doing interviews, spilling tea, and throwing shade. It is a great time to be alive.
