Lynn N Chicago Real Housewives of Atlanta Air Date Dec 5, 2010
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is usually the most entertaining of all the Housewives series, tonight the ladies were a bit subdued and the main comic genius, NeNe Leakes just wasn’t up for the fun tonight.
The end of a marriage is devastating and NeNe feels betrayed by a cold hearted man who seems to have absolutely no empathy for his wife of 13-years. This is the time in NeNe’s life that she needs a friend, a real friend who she can count on. NeNe was visited by her good friend Diana, a much better friend than Kim Zolciak who can’t even seem to listen to NeNe without bringing up her own situation and turning the conversation so that the focus is back on Kim.
NeNe turned to her friend Cynthia but her fiancé, Peter is less than sympathetic and is frustrated that he has to share his lady with NeNe. This is a serious matter as Peter actually forbids Cynthia to talk to NeNe while he’s at home, demanding that all of her attention be on him as long as he’s home. Peter is clearly stressed out about his restaurant as we learn in the future that the business he is concerned about, does in fact go under and closes.
NeNe just can’t catch a break these days as she reluctantly attends a luxury car race, competing are Sheree and Kandi with their Aston Martin and Mercedes but NeNe is even more frustrated as Peter is cold and doesn’t interact with her the way he used to. The warm friendly hugs and discussion is gone replaced with a distant grumpy Peter.
Things go from bad to worse as she calls Cynthia and asks to speak with Peter, he is rude and actually yells at NeNe on the phone but gives her no reason for his change of attitude toward her.
Cynthia is in a horrible position as she tries to make peace between her friend and her fiancé but she has caved into his demand that she no longer speak with NeNe on the phone when he is home. Surprisingly Cynthia allows Peter to dictate when this grown woman is allowed to talk on the phone. It really is a shame that this man won’t allow Cynthia to be available for NeNe particularly when she needs a friend right now.
To everyone who watched the show, Kim Zolciak owes you all an apology! Her voice is just horrible, there is no vocal coach in the world that can correct this woman’s singing enough to make anyone want to record and listen to it. I cannot understand how she’s made a dime off of her recording of “Tardy For The Party” as the singing is horrendous. I’m sure that Bravo finds it amusing to make viewers listen to her struggle to find a note and to carry a tune but it really is just painful and agonizing.
Sheree, besides racing her ridiculously expensive new car has decided to take up the art of acting. Her audition in front of several agents was almost as painful to watch as Kim’s singing but not quite, when it comes to acting, Sheree should really stick to designing fashion. Her She By Sheree outfits were at least tolerable.
Phaedra and Apollo offered the comic relief for the evening, after Kim’s horrible singing and Sheree’s horrible acting and NeNe’s depression, Phaedra and Apollo had their magical photographer come by their house and take photos of the family with their new baby boy. Stripping the baby naked must have seemed like a good idea at the time for some beautiful photographs but naked babies just seem to love to go to the bathroom as soon as that diaper comes off. Phaedra was christened in baby poop while smiling pretty for the camera. Hysterical!
Kandi must have the patience of a saint as she worked tirelessly on Kim’s song, “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing”. Kim and Kandi are unlikely friends anyway and while they were very good friends last year tweeting away about family vacations together and parties, they’ve stopped all communication on social networks to one another and seem to have had a falling out.
Kim Zolciak just doesn’t seem like a very good friend, she’s a taker and gives nothing back. Her selfish behavior will continue to lose her friends as the only one constant in her life is her assistant Sweetie whom she pays to be by her side. Kim is certainly not the type of friend I would want in my life.
As we’ve recently learned from TMZ, Kim won’t even give up her cigarettes for her unborn baby and while there is no visual proof, Kim’s wine drinking is legendary and most likely continues to consume wine as some doctors do allow that for pregnant women.
Thursday night Bravo will air its newest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, look for my review of that episode right here next.
Thank you for joining me!
