I’m sorry…I really, really didn’t want to speak on the Real Housewives of Atlanta at all. Sure, like a lot of folks out there I watched the show as a guilty little pleasure. You have to admit, it is entertaining television.
I watched the reunion show last night and I must say…they were in rare form. Rare! Oh my goodness. I really thought someone’s weave or wig was going to fly across the screen. Here are my thoughts:
- Ne Ne saying that the rumors of her bring an ex-stripper are false because she currently strips, but only strips for her husband was one of the best lines of the night.
- Lisa should have let Ne Ne loose. I would have been ok with her getting one good slap in on Kim. lol
- Kim, why would you elude to the fact that you are wearing a wig because you have cancer and then take it back in the next few sentences. You sound crazy? I was sitting there thinking…ok…do you have some other terrible disease? Sexually transmitted maybe (I only say that because that was my reaction to the fact she said she didn’t want to talk about it. If you’ll mention cancer but not another disease…what do you have to hide?) Oh, and let me not forget to mention that Dallas Austin has publicly said that he and Kim are not working together and that he was just working with her for TV on his Myspace blog.
- I love Dwight!!! He is fierce! Note to Bravo: He needs his own show!
- What was up with the hole in Sheree’s sweater? Did a fight breakout before the taping?
- Was it just me or was DeShawn a little less perky now she’s gone through the after-show drama and commenting/gossip (online and otherwise) that has surely taken her through the ringer for her extravagance, her servants, and the failed fundraiser?
- Lisa??? You were the good one, right? What in the world did Kim do to push her buttons. She looked like she was about to take her earrings off and whop Kim’s a**.
Like Flavor Flav’s reality show dating journey, I knew this show was going to be a general train wreck before it even started airing. Sure, I thought about blogging about it just for the web traffic. In the end, I didn’t see a good reason to add to the fray of negativity that was the show and that was created around the show. Bloggers and those commenting on blogs and posts online have been vicious, but…can you blame them. The RHOA is flat out embarrassing. Period. Why? A show focused on 4 black women and one white woman = a “black show”. Black people like to see black shows that portray black women with class and dignity.
Let me clarify. We like those uplifting shows with class and dignity, but we will damn near watch anything with a black person on it, regardless of how we are portrayed. Anything!!!! Let me just repeat that. African Americans, I’m sorry but it’s true.
In the end, this show was entertaining but it’s not forwarding the cause of black, feminine equality and pride. Hell no! That was never the intent, right?
