Sheree comes to visit Torrei Hart at her apartment to talk about Sheree’s father. Sheree hasn’t seen him in almost 15 years. She says that she lost contact with him because his number changed. She says that she has tried to find her father many times, but has been unsuccessful. In this time of Facebook, are you saying that you have not been able to reach anyone on your father’s side of the family? That’s the story. Let’s roll with that then. She and Torrei are going to ride in their “hot pink pick-up truck” down to Madison, Georgia where he lives. How far is this from Atlanta? I smell contrived storyline.
On this episode of Atlanta Exesthe women vacay in the Cayman Islands, bond over their similar experiences, and attempt to move forward with their lives.
The ladies meet for lunch at Amura Sushi Steak. Torrei has a male friend who says they can use his place in The Cayman Islands. Tameka Raymond wants to know if her friend is married. Where did that come from? Tameka doesn’t want to go to the Caymans because she has been there with her first husband. Sheree wants to swim with the dolphins. Tameka doesn’t want to. Torrei Hart wants to scuba dive. Tameka doesn’t want to do that either. No one is allowing Tameka’s negativity to put a damper on things they just let her be the Debbie Downer that she is and the show flows much better. Side Note: For people who don’t like each other, why are Tameka and Torrei always sitting right next to each other?
The ladies arrive to the white sands and blue waters of the Cayman Islands. Once at the house, with rum punch in hand, they begin the search for their bedrooms. Tameka says that the rooms have to face a certain way towards the looney bin. She also cannot sleep in a bunk bed. Torrei finds the master, but Tameka also has her eyes set on this room. Tameka settles on a room with double beds and everyone says how the room matches her because it is very “Zen.” Seriously???
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
The Little Couple star Jen Arnold shared, “After only one day of school, Will and Zoey have become avid readers. LOL! JK, but they do enjoy reading.”
This week on Atlanta Exes, the ladies are far from over the fallout at the Tea Market. Sheree Buchananmay have discovered the reason why Tameka Raymond has been throwing so many jabs her way. Monyetta Shaw reveals devastating information. If you thought the argument at the Tea market was bad, this week it is even worse.
The episode begins where it left off, at the Tea Market. Traci is still screaming; and Greg, Tameka’s assistant, is saying that he believes that Traci Steele and Torrei Hart came to the event to bring drama. Outside while talking to Greg and Brandon, Tameka’s assistants or her minions as Torrei calls them, Torrei takes jabs at Tameka’s career. She says that Tameka hasn’t styled anyone lately and has no sense of style. Tameka takes her style cues from the Kardashians. Noooo, *in my Kevin Hart voice,* she definitely would be lost if that was the case. Inside, Tameka vents to her sister. She calls Traci Steele and Torrei, “flat shoe” MFers. Tameka also says that she probably didn’t greet Torrei because Torrei looked like one of the Mongolian carpets, with that nappy ass shit in her head. “You were camouflaged, if you ask me,” Tameka says of Torrei and the carpets. Outside, Torrei complains to Traci that Tameka can’t keep using her son’s death as an excuse. Torrei says that Tameka was like that before her son died, and people around town were saying that it was karma that her son died because of the type of person she is/was. Side note –Personally, I can’t believe that anyone would say that, or that Torrei would be insensitive enough to repeat it, on national TV no less.
On this week’s episode Tameka Raymond, ex-wife to Usher, got into an altercation with Traci Steele, ex Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star, at Tameka’s “Tea Market” event. An event, I remind you, that was thrown for a charity honoring Tameka’s deceased son. What is that etiquette rule that states Everything has a time and a place, again? Yeah, Tameka, Traci, and Torrei Hart need to read up on their Emily Post!
Rumor has it the fight prompted Tameka to quit the show, which necessitated producers to beg her back. Traci is speaking out to tell her side of the story, and of course she is crying editing foul! Girl please, you want back on reality TV, you were desperate for a big blown up mess that would remind producers you exist and are drama worthy.
“There was a buildup to that. It was much longer and a lot more arguing in between that and all of that was cut out, so it looked like she said one word to me and I snapped and went off. And that’s not the case at all,” Traci begins.
We start off with Sheree and Tameka at her house. Sheree is being very nice considering how Tameka has been treating her. Sheree brings up the jabs that Tameka has been throwing, and Tameka’s explanation for all of the jabs is that she says things before thinking because her brain moves so rapidly. Huh, say what. Okay, Bitter Einstein. So, let me get this straight. Tameka is basically saying, ‘I am correct in thinking those mean things about you. I probably shouldn’t say them, but you can’t fault me for that either because I only say them because my brain moves so much faster than everyone else’s, including yours.’ I think I got it, or maybe my brain doesn’t move that fast. *eye roll* Sheree offers to fix her up on a date. Tameka agrees as long as the guy’s pants aren’t sagging. Was that another jab? I’m trying to train my brain to keep up.
“It is exciting that the continued success of Hollywood Exes has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” shares VH1‘s EVP Susan Levison. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the Exes brand down South was a natural evolution. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene .”
VH1 promises us “fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.” I’m anxious to see if this show fares well. Hollywood Exes has a small – but loyal – fan base. VH1 hasn’t promoted Atlanta Exes much, but reality shows based in Atlanta usually do well, so we shall see. Atlanta Exes premieres August 18 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1. Meet the cast and watch the extended trailer below.
