Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion – Part 3 / Million Dollar Listing New York “Eggcetera, Eggcetera”

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 3 by RamonaCoaster

Note from Veena:  Thank you RamonaCoaster for another great blogging season!


The ratings for the reunion Part Deux is down to 2.83 million Live +3 but it is still good numbers.  The ratings do usually trend down for Part II.

Nene is still screaming, “I have never flirted with Peter! Don’t go there! Ask Peter!”  Peter says Nene and he have similar personalities as Kenya and Apollo but nothing happened between them.  He thinks they all owe an apology to Kenya.  Peter says Kenya is not the kind of woman to screw other people’s husband.  Phaedra looks like she wants to rip his throat out because he is undoing all things she has said about Kenya.  Gregg asks Peter if Peter and Nene flirted and Peter said no.  He addresses the rumors that Porsha started and he says he wouldn’t sleep with a waitress.  He would do something better than that like JLo or Beyonce, and he’d rather beat the meat.

Andy asks the last time Kandi and Todd knocked Timberland boots together and they said two days ago.  They start clapping.  Andy wants to know where they are with the baby planning and Todd said it’s coming soon.  Tune in!  Andy offers condolences regarding Todd’s mother passing.  He tells the story that he called his mother on the phone and he got worried when she didn’t answer.  His asked his mother’s neighbor and friend to check on her and found that she moved off to a better place. Miss Sharon had a stroke. Peter attended the funeral, Gregg had spoken at the funeral, Nene tried to go but couldn’t because of her Broadway show and Phaedra assisted with the services.  When Mama Joyce apologized, Kandi wanted to clarify that it was before Miss Sharon passed.  Todd didn’t think Joyce’s apology was sincere because of the word ”but” in it.  After they finished taping there was another apology that was accepted.  It’s good to know that at least their argument was put to rest.  Kandi and Todd said his mother’s death brought them closer. Todd still has bad feelings over the way the prenuptial contract was dealt with.  I doubt many people would want an ultimatum.  Phaedra says she respects Kandi and Todd’s relationship and keeps quiet.  Andy then asks if Kandi had her boobs done.  I don’t blame him for asking because she is practically spilling out.  He had said on WWHL that he is very familiar with Nene’s left boob.  Kandi said she just gained weight and is taking hormones.  Andy then introduces Kandi’s new show about her family going on a ski trip to Steamboat Spring Colorado and we see some previews of it.

Gregg said some supposed words of wisdom regarding headlights which didn’t make sense so I’m not going to go into it. He seems to want to fill Apollo’s missing presence.

Andy moves along to talk about Nene and Cynthia’s friendship and the end of the friendship contract.  Nene explains the rift between them.  When Peter and Gregg fought in Mexico, they fought talked and put it behind them and they were fine.  The episode airs and Nene hears people telling Cynthia to change up their relationship on the show and confront her.  They were in Vegas together when the show aired and Nene didn’t like the shade that Cynthia said about picking up grandbabies.  Cynthia would rather raise Noelle to not be sheltered because she thinks sheltered teens will most likely be pregnant.  Bryson is in his twenties when he had a child and old enough to get a job and take care of a baby.  Nene said the calls from Cynthia stopped and they had some issues that came out on the blog.  Nene said she heard Cynthia wanted to change seating arrangements for the reunion.

It’s Cynthia’s turn to address the situation.  She said she never requested a seat change for the reunion and didn’t know she had the power to change her seat.  Andy said she didn’t.  Sounds like production meddling in their relationship for drama.  She addressed the “bitch” comment made to Peter.  She talks about Mexico and when the episode aired they were in Vegas and Nene gave her shade on the blog.  Cynthia then says Nene tried to get Cynthia kicked off the show when Nene was on WWHL.  They showed a clip saying Nene said Cynthia didn’t bring anything to the show.  Cynthia said if she was a friend she would never had said that.  This is when Nene screams over Cynthia to shut her down.  Andy sees no resolution so he wants to move on and gets shut down.  Finally the screaming is over.  Cynthia said she would like to be cordial, not be enemies.  Nene said she was a very good friend to Cynthia.  That is, until she has an “Everyone always attacks Nene” paranoia and it’s all over.

Andy then goes on to talk about Portia’s new body and her showing it off.  Porsha feels like she is stronger this season.  When she was with Kordell, she reflected the thoughts of her husband and didn’t want to go to the strip club but now she can’t stop twerkin’ and flaunting it.  She mentions marching in a parade with her grandfather, the civil rights activist, and getting rocks thrown at her.

After they ran the Nene vs Claudia showdown in Puerto Rico, Kandi said Claudia had a lot of comebacks.  Claudia brings up Nene saying her clit was blown off.  Claudia said Nene apologized once and wasn’t sincere.  Nene screamed an apology on the bus.  Take it and run with it, Claudia.  That’s the best you’ll get.

We get a clip of Andy checking out more of Nene’s boobs and Nene doesn’t mind at all.

A viewer addresses Nene’s comment about calling Claudia a half-breed.  Nene explains that Claudia kept talking about being biracial.  She thinks Claudia was more insulted about her missing clit.  Nene said those words just came out in an argument.  I think a lot of things Nene said were not okay. Nene wanted to apologize to the viewers (not Claudia).  She makes the stupid comment that her friends were biracial.  Nene says she might even be biracial.

Andy wants to know about the status of Nene’s blood clot.  She wants to call herself, “Clotetia.”  She takes medication for it.  Andy brings up Kandi calling Kenya’s booty lopsided.  I only noticed the size comparison between Kenya’s and the horse’s butt.  There was an equal ratio.

Andy then brings up the trip to the Philippines and the change in the group dynamics without Nene there.    Kenya and Phaedra’s detente did not last very long.  Kenya says the reunions are difficult because they rehash arguments and bad feelings.  Phaedra said she wanted to oblige Kenya but she never got over the things that had transpired.  Nene doesn’t regret missing the trip despite the fun they all had.  Hey, she was on Broadway.


Andy talks about Nene’s “Friendtervention.” Dr. Jeff makes an appearance.  He gives Nene a special hello.  Dr. Jeff says he was there to make them understand each other and knowing they are all strong together.  Dr. Jeff and Nene had several experiences.  Nene says she felt the session was started out wrong and it turned into “Come at Nene Day.”  Nene thinks Dr. Jeff asked about the traumatizing events in other people’s life and she felt left out.  Nene then says her mother never raised her, her father never claimed her, she had been lied to, cheated on, been in an abusive relationship and everyone else had issues that cause them to behave in a certain way.  Dr. Jeff responds by saying he knew about her issues of abandonment.  He had the other ladies tell Nene her issues so that Nene could explain where she was coming from.  Apparently Nene didn’t catch on at the time but that’s probably because she has problems with putting herself in other’s shoes.  Dr. Jeff said she was justified in getting up and walking out and Nene was often in pain too.  Porsha says Nene was put into defensive mode as each woman aired their issues and there was a pileup.  Kandi says she doesn’t remember the conversation going that way.  She remembers Nene getting defensive at the start and only a couple of ladies only talked about want they went through in her childhood.  Nene looks like she is going to break down all throughout Kandi’s words and she starts crying.  Dr. Jeff stops the arguing over how the intervention went and says they need to listen to what Nene has to say.  Cynthia does ask someone for some tissue for her.

Nene is breaking down crying and saying she has nothing to say.  Cynthia says she is proud of Nene despite not having her mother in her life and her life not being easy.  She gives her props that she is blessed and talented.  Kenya then says they both have a lot in common and she didn’t go after her.  Nene then gets up to leave and says she can’t talk about her mom.  It’s nice of Cynthia to get up and comfort her.  All the ladies try to comfort her.

Nene leaves the couch in tears.  Kenya says she tries to be so strong and they don’t see the vulnerability.   Kandi doesn’t understand what set her off.  I think she is struggling with her bs alarm going off versus being compassionate with Nene’s breakdown.  Kenya thinks Nene got tired and broke down.

Gregg explains to Andy that Nene and her brother was raised by her aunt but her other three siblings were raised by her mom.  Her mother couldn’t take care of all 5 children.  She has always wondered why she had to be the one sent away.  Nene seems to have built some strong walls as the result of her abandonment and it’s hard to maintain it. Nene gets her makeup touched up and returns to filming the reunion.  Kenya is more open about talking about her situation with her mother and has good coping methods where that is concerned.  Nene returns to the couch and she doesn’t want to talk about her situation.

Dr. Jeff says her pain she has been holding on to has propelled her to success because pain is power but it can break you down.  Dr. Jeff says despite the competition and the fighting, the women were there for her when push came to shove.  Nene says she was misunderstood and she thinks people think she hasn’t been through tough things in her life.  Cynthia says she saw her ex-friend have a real moment and she respected her for her hard work and success.  Dr. Jeff says the ladies want to give her support.  Claudia says she doesn’t want to fight with anyone because no one gets anything out of it.  She just might see her peach fall out of her hand.

Nene then asks Dr. Jeff before he leaves if he would have handled the counseling session different if he had known how it turned out.  He says he would have adjusted in order to meet the needs of his patient.  Andy wants an appointment with Dr. Jeff.

Andy wraps it up and asks Cynthia if she felt the reunion was healing.  Both Nene and Cynthia says it was.  Cynthia apologizes to Phaedra.  Phaedra thanks her.  Phaedra says this season was the roughest.  She says she is still grateful and pressure builds diamonds.  Claudia says she feels she has grown and learned a lot.  Kenya feels she learned more about forgiveness. Porsha says they all have had breakthroughs.  Kandi says life is like a rollercoaster but she stays on the ride.  Nene thought it was great the ladies were supportive.  She remembered Cynthia at the last minute.  Andy proposes a big group hug.  They did the work.

So this ends Season 7 of the Atlanta Housewives. I see why a lot of people tune into this show more than the other housewives show.  These ladies personal stories are very compelling.  They are strong ladies that constantly battle for the spot next to Andy.  It’s interesting that the two ladies, Kenya and Nene, that have the most screwed up start in life are the ones that bring the most drama.  They all have had great success in their lives; we see them in different stages and their interactions have run the gamut from explosive to heartfelt.  But tough background or not, some of these women’s behaviors are not acceptable and no amount of crying should excuse it.


Million Dollar Listing New York “Eggcetera, Eggcetera”

by NotInStCyr

SPOILERS: in this episode, Luis lays an egg, Fredrik is looking for one and Ryan is scrambling not to put all of his in 1 basket.

Luis visits Dr. and Mrs. Jones at the plastic surgeon’s office to present them with 2 viable offers for their beautiful brownstone in the Harlem hinterlands. One of them is for $3.51 million, which is slightly above the asking price.  The Jones’ are ecstatic and tell Luis how much they love having him as their broker. This is not foreshadowing at all.  No siree.  Luis rubs his hands in glee at the thought of getting a commission of $105,300, some of which he’ll spend on a celebratory dinner with the Joneses.

1 - fredrik and ryan (Medium)

Fredrik invited Ryan to do a co-exclusive listing for the penthouse at 138 W. 19th St.  He explains that this is Chelsea, an area that has become a desirable, expensive place to live in, especially after the High Line was developed.  The two meet with the developer, who jokes that the brokers are the same height and even look like twins.  Nonplussed, they look at each other and reply, “No!” almost at the same time. Fredrik later describes his past relationship with Ryan as having been “rocky”.  That is like calling the Civil War a “little dust up”.  Nonetheless, he says that he’s always wondered what would happen if they joined forces instead of undermining each other. It’s just like when Iron Man put his ego aside to work with Thor and the Avengers.  Fredrik goes a little bit too far when he tells the developer with a straight face that he’s never had a fight with any broker. Ryan agrees with an insincere twinkle in his eye. As they tour the 2-bedroom, 2-bath unfinished unit priced at $5.995 million, the brokers start arguing about how it should be finished and staged.  Fredrik wants a bachelor-esque look of dark wood floors, furs and mirrors, while Ryan prefers a more classic and neutral scheme. Ryan explains that even though there may be a buyer who’ll say, “How did you know I like fur and mirrors?”, that it’s best to avoid having too many personal touches when staging a home.  Fredrik feels that as a young, handsome and single superbroker, he has his finger on the pulse of – oh wait a minute – he just remembered that he’s married.  Scratch that. Ryan snarks that these are the moments when he realizes how much older Fredrik is, because his taste is so 1990’s. Privately — at least in front of a Bravo camera and the viewing public — Ryan says that he’s accepting the olive branch offered by Fredrik, because he likes olives.  After all, Emilia is Greek, so she’s from a place full of olives.  Yes, Ryan is killing it this episode.  They agree to meet later with the stager, who will settle the matter.  On the way out, Fredrik invites Ryan and Emilia out to dinner with Derek and himself.

2 - dinner (Medium)

Luis is in his Maserati when he receives call from his faithful assistant, Ronita, who tells him that the deal for the house in Harlem has fallen through, because the buyer couldn’t get the financing.  It’s a credit to Luis’ driving skills that his rage didn’t immediately cause a 5-car pile-up.  He heads on over to his dinner with Dr. and Mrs. Jones, who now will not have a thing going on. Luis waits until everyone has some drinks and appetizers before he tells them about the doomed deal.  Even though Luis is insistent, the Joneses still won’t reduce the asking price.  Dr. Jones then says that he’ll understand if Luis wants to walk away from representing them.  Luis takes the out, proclaiming that their friendship is more important than business.

At the penthouse, Fredrik and Ryan immediately start fighting about design when they meet with Will, the stager.  Although I think that Fredrik is sincere in wanting to turn a corner in his adversarial relationship with Ryan, he’s too aggressive and forceful a broker to collaborate easily.  Ryan, on the other hand, has a more sarcastic and laid back approach to business.  He’s like the wise cracking, yet sensitive, buddy in a romantic comedy.  In reality, he’s as much of a territorial, head-butting alpha male as Fredrik.  The two men move around, posture and arch their necks as they argue, just like warring Whooping Cranes on the Discovery Channel.  The stager stands back, listens and then wisely incorporates some of each broker’s ideas into his scheme.  This man should work for the UN.

In fulfillment of some kind of power fantasy, Fredrik summons Jordan, his long-suffering assistant, to the salon where he’s getting a haircut.  The unsuspecting employee is allowed to burble about paperwork until Fredrik seizes a trimmer and unabashedly shaves an F into Jordan’s chest hair.  Who does that?  Somewhere, an administrator in Douglas Elliman’s HR Department just fainted and fell to the floor.

3 - dinner2 (Medium)

4 - ryan (Medium)

Ryan doesn’t want to put all his eggs in one basket — at least the Eklund basket.  So, he agrees to meet with a Russian liquor distributor who is looking for a $20 million property to invest in.  Arty is sitting on a banquette surrounded by a bevy of 7 women he calls his “family”. Ryan calls them a gaggle of girlfriends.  They laugh loudly and appreciatively at Arty’s repertoire of douchey jokes probably memorized from the back pages of a porn magazine.  Playing off of one of Arty’s witticisms, I was going to write something about his obvious preference for cunning linguists, but the ghost of Oscar Wilde held me back.  The ladies are all young and beautiful, while Arty — not so much. You do the math.  Anyway, before doing business, Arty insists that Ryan drink 5 straight shots of tequila.  The entire situation is sketchy, and Arty is an unlikely mogul.  Yet, Ryan tells us that in New York you should never judge a book by its cover. He’s sold $20 million apartments to people he could have sworn were homeless, and that he’d even drink motor oil to seal the deal.  The gaggle guffaws like a laugh track as Ryan destroys his liver.

5 - Luis (Medium) 6 - woman (Medium)

Luis is sitting alone, drinking wine on the rooftop of his building, profiled against the setting sun.  He is eventually joined by Lysane, a beautiful young woman he invited up.  He says that this is the first time in a long time he’s seen a woman with different clothes on, meaning more than twice.  He even holds 2 fingers up to make sure we get it.  Luis then utters one of the most unbelievably self-centered, egotistical things I’ve ever heard this side of Kanye West. He says, “I have a hard time committing to someone because there is a specific energy and fire that I have, and I like when I am by myself…I am afraid of a relationship that could potentially have the power of destroying my candle, my fire.”  Yowza.  I had to rewind the scene several times to make sure I did it justice.  Luis doesn’t need anyone to light his fire.  Arsonists and firemen need not apply, thank you very much.  Luis then draws Lysane into his arms and slow dances half-heartedly, while thinking about the soured Jones deal.  Really — he admits it.  As Bravo plays sad, tinkling piano music, Luis tells Lysane to go. He’s best left alone with the one he loves.  Let’s hope that as she leaves the building, Lysane realizes what a lucky break she’s had and immediately pulls out her cell phone to delete Luis from her contacts and then blocks his telephone number, for good measure.  Run, girl, run.  Shake it off, get yourself something from Starbucks, go home and watch a good movie on Netflix.

Ryan has an appointment for Arty to see a $23 million apartment in the Meatpacking District.  He shows up in a stretch limo accompanied by his harem. So many long-legged, beautiful woman get out of it, that it looks like the clown car gag at the circus. Here’s my take on Arty:  I think that he dreamed about having an extravagant, debauched lifestyle ever since he read about Hugh Hefner in his contraband copies of Playboy in Russia. Now that he’s in the U.S. with a black card in his wallet, plus the unlimited number of half-starved, high-cheekboned willing waifs running around New York, he’s living La Vida Id.  As they tour the unit, the gaggle runs amok in the kitchen, while the listing agent nervously looks on.  They steal food from the fridge, poke around the kitchen cabinets and test the sink faucet, which they wiggle around suggestively.  They also insist on jumping up and down on every bed, like a bouncy castle.  As commission dollars dance in his head, Ryan convinces himself that all this trouble is worth it.

7 - woman2 (Medium)

Fredrik and Derek have dinner with Ryan and Emilia.  Although the last time Ryan ate out with them was disastrous, he explains that the world’s different, he’s different, and he’ll get through this somehow.  Fredrik immediately starts needling Ryan and bullying him about which wine to drink.  Perhaps this is Fredrik’s way of teasing.  I think he has a bit of mischievous Loki in him, which gets out at inopportune times. He compliments Emilia and even suggests that Derek paint a portrait of her.  This makes Ryan uncomfortable, because he doesn’t want that much Fredrik in his life.  Besides, he’d probably end up getting billed for the painting.  Ryan draws the line when Fredrik asks for a piece of his steak.  I’m sure there was something in National Geographic about alpha carnivores never sharing their meat.  Fredrik and Derek go on share the news about their plans to have a child and the difficulty of getting friends and family members to donate eggs.

Luis, the embodiment of burning Latin love, says that most brokers “at his level” have a team working for them, and he just has 1 person.  Instead of comparing himself with more experienced and successful brokers and bemoaning his lack of lackeys, I wish Luis would publicly appreciate Ronita, who has been doing the work of an entire team. She suggests hiring one more person.  Luis agrees and says us that he wants a person who can represent his brand, whatever that means.  In all sincerity, he tells her that they are “in the midst of becoming number one.”  Fredrik will no doubt be thrown into a panic when he hears this.

8 - Fredrik (Medium)

Fredrik and Derek are getting ready for bed.  Fredrik muses out loud that he likes Emilia and thinks they should ask her “for some eggs”.  Yep, it’s just like borrowing a cup of sugar from the neighbor next door.  The paint-dappled perfection that is Derek says that he likes her a lot, too.  However, he notes that of all the women in the world, she is the girlfriend of Ryan, Fredrik’s former archenemy.  Fredrik dreams on, and recalls that when he looked into her eyes, he saw intelligence, kindness and beauty.  He has the feeling that “she could be the one”.  Awww.  I hope that this isn’t some contrived Bravo BS, and that Fredrik really is just that crazy.

Cool and the Gang show up late for an appointment with Ryan to see an apartment in Tribeca listed for $22.5 million.  Ryan is exasperated with Arty, because having an unreliable client makes him look bad to his colleagues.  Arty also brings along 2 bottles of tequila that he wants to open, because hey, why not turn a business occasion into a party!  The gaggle rampages through another apartment as a hapless listing agent looks on.  Oooh, pretty picture, let’s pull it off!  Look, this wall would look so much better with smiley faces drawn on it.  Godzilla would run in fear from these women. Girls, remember:  just because you wear Bebe, doesn’t mean you have to live up to the name.  Ryan, holding on for dear life to his sense of professionalism, informs Arty that the apartment is 6,900 sq. ft.   I wish I could tell you that Arty, in a rare moment of clarity, goes on to ask about the building’s amenities.  Instead, he smirks and says something smutty.  Ryan would like to remind his client that “this is a real estate showing, not a Cabo Wabo cantina!”  But then there’s the matter of the commission and the egg basket.

  1. Donna says:

    Porsha said she was 6 years old and participated in the march. The march happened in 1965

    • I got the impression that perhaps there have been more than one march? Can anyone clarify? Like did they do this walk once a year? I actually am waiting to see Selma on my Netflix list. My son’t social studies class was offering extra credit to see the movie earlier in the year, BUT the closest theater that was showing it was over 30 miles away. Yes, I live in a very “white” suburb, but I would think a movie like this should be shown in ALL theaters.

    • T-Rex says:

      I checked and they don’t have a yearly march in Selma that is on any website, that doesn’t mean that the church doesn’t do something every 10 or so years as an anniversary tribute, so being 6 in 1975 would be a possibility she attended the march. I should also point out that Pea-BrainedPorsha’s family were “disinvited” from the Charity and Legacy Organization of Hosea Williams some 20 years ago, they are not a party of the Organization and were stricken from all claim to to rights in the organization. They did something bad, apparently.

      • T-Rex says:

        OMFG I have to retract my post, doing math this morning, and apparently I need an “F” on that subject, LOL! She could have been 4 years old for the 20th anniversary of the march, LOL! Unless she is lying about her age, which is a possibility. I highly doubt however she was there, I think that’s another LIE from that Pea-BrainedHobagforRichAfricanMarriedMenPorsha

        • Sorry, but please put on your bib and get out your best silver fork: crow is being served down the comments page. 😉

          • T-Rex says:

            No crow eating here, I don’t even watch the RHOA folks, just going by what folks posted here and doing some math

            • I think the misunderstanding is that Porsha never said she marched on the Bridge at Selma. She said she marched with her grandfather and they had rocks thrown at them, etc. It’s hard to catch every nuance and word when watching such a fast-paced and contentious group hashing out their lives and problems at once. It’s why I admire the bloggers for all the trouble they go through to recap the craziness.

      • Powell says:

        What about her organization she highlighted her first season?

        • T-Rex says:

          What organization? If you mean the Hosea Williams Foundation, they made her ass take that down! Her family is not on ANY of the boards for this foundation and their names have been removed as even active family members. Something happened, years ago, and they were asked to leave the foundation

    • Powell says:

      During her time. There are anniversary marches.

      • mrs peabody says:

        given how young she might have been she probably doesn’t fully remember what parade she was in, just that it was a parade of some type.

    • Her grandfather organized a march in Ga. in 1987 in a “sun down” county here, Forsyth.

      It was called a “sun down town” (Cumming) because blacks made sure they were out of there by sun down.

      The KKK turned the march into a violent attack on the marchers.

      I’m going to post a link to an article about this below, since others don’t know about it and I want to clear up this misunderstanding.

      I know about this because I have in-laws who live there and lived there at the time, BTW. I’ve been there many times in the last 38 years.

  2. SerenaNYC says:

    Wow who else saw the Tamara Tattles post about Kim and the picture of her smoking! I am so done with her that I could write a letter to Evolution and Bravo about how this liar needs to be taken off TV.

    • T-Rex says:

      LyingDrugAddictAlcoholicKim has always smoked, so has CountlessLumanDeLeHubcaps, I believe TheRoyalVPump is a closet smoker, she smokes but never in public.

      • serenanyc says:

        Yep I believe Ken is the big smoker. Remember in Puerto Rico we saw Lisa V smoke a bit of Ken’s cigarette?

        No wonder Kim’s skin is so bad!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I posted a link in the last blog…I am so bored if her at this point.

      Smoke and drink your life away.

  3. serenanyc says:

    LVP with her parents

  4. serenanyc says:

    Eileen and Vince’s ex surely look like they get along. Sorry Brandi!

  5. T-Rex says:

    OH, and going back to that supreme LIE by THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi. and her visit with LyingDrugAddictAlcoholicKim, my friend in LA pointed out that IF that occurred, which it didn’t don’t you think either of them would have planted a big OLD picture of the two of them on Instagram? Of course they would have. She told me that while they call the Malibu House a Sober Living facility, it runs very much like the rules of a traditional rehab when it comes to visitors, why, so that no one sneaks in drugs and alcohol. Many folks in the place are there under some court orders, or in because they want a lighter sentence from some drug or alcohol infraction. You have to sign contracts and adhere to the rules of the place to be in there. The fact that Monty or even her children haven’t been in to see her yet, means she hasn’t been granted those privileges yet.

  6. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Hope you had a fantabulous Mother’s Day!! 😊
    Now after the turbulence of last night’s ATL reunion I think we need to do a GROUP HUG!!! 😯😊🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅🙅

  7. Powell says:

    So who here is offering up their “eggs” to Fred? 🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣 To me that was a weird thing to ask Ryan’s fiance. 😏

  8. mrs peabody says:

    Just like Peter wouldn’t sleep with a waitress, Jlo and Beyoncé wouldn’t sleep with him. If he wants to get lucky outside his marriage he better find someone on his level and truthfully I don’t think a waitress would want him either.

  9. Donna says:

    I noticed Todd’s eyes were waterly?, not just when talking about his mom

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      I saw that in the first look. Totally.

    • Powell says:

      All I know is Kandi doesn’t get it. He says something and she 🙄 her eyes and says “whatever”. She’s going to “whatever” herself right out of her marriage.

    • Powell says:

      When Dr. Jeff said the ladies need to listen, I suggest Kandi take his advice because she doesn’t “listen” to Todd. That and dismissing his feelings will be their downfall.

  10. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Thanks for the blogs!

    Interesting that RHOA reunion brought up the issues of mother/parent child abandonment on Mother’s Day.

    Made me appreciate mine all the more.

    • Powell says:

      I was thinking ab what Greg said. He said NeNe has always wanted to know why her mom chose her out off the 5 kids along w/her bro to send to her aunt. I’ve seen programs where the mom has sent kids to live w/the grandmother, aunt, father etc and the mother has often said, “she was always a strong child. I didn’t have to worry about her. The others needed me more.”, thinking either that child would be ok or to ease their guilty conscious. And then for NeNe’s bio father to not want to have anything to do w/her was a double edged sword, even though she found out about him as an adult. That has to work on a person’s psychi.

    • plainviewsue says:

      The comments were a riot!! So their first Little Town restaurant already closed, to make way for another restaurant they own? And now they are opening this version? Nothing these brothers do ever succeeds. And is BLK done? What does Chris Laurita do now? Isn’t his trial supposed to be happening soon?

    • Powell says:

      The name is good. They have partners and I’m guessing the style is bigger tables for communion style seating since he said they want it social w/friends and family and that has worked in many restaurants. I think them having partners is a huge plus. Maybe this one will succeed.

  11. TexasTart says:

    Chismosa, FYI.

    • Barf.
      She needs to shut her show down and should have managed the zendaya / dummie purple hair no-talent/ anorexic TV host drama …….
      Plus she axed my George. I’m DONE with her 🙅🏾

      But thanks for the heads up.

      • TexasTart says:

        Good to know, lol! I think, because I loved all things Joan so much, that I must read this book, since Joan can not produce books any more.

      • I like Melissa.

        IMHO- she was in no place emotionally to manage anyone, let alone those drama queens.

        It WAS badly handled, but I don’t blame her for any of it.

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          I hear you, so she should have stepped aside as EP and either let the show go (I had always thought she was the main “owner” of the show and hadn’t realized she was only one EP), or she should have paused the show for minimum 6 months but they rushed since awards seasons all started right at Joan’s passing time.

          It’s all SUPER SUPER 🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠y how that zendaya thing was bc there’s so much dispute over takes made / writers having written some jokes or not/ Ghouliana speaking naturally or not, etc. The G vs K thing intrigues me. 😵
          kelly annoys me no end. No talent nobody.

          I lived for that show and my Georgiaki was Joan’s FIERCEST laugher so it pissed me off when he left. I have a grudge I guess for Mel R. 😏

          I miss Joan so much I feel like i knew her !!!!! #ineedtogetalife

  12. Just to clear this up, from the discussion above:

    Porsha’s grandfather, Hosea Williams, organized a march in the “sundown town” of Cumming, Ga., in Forsyth County, Ga., in 1987. Blacks didn’t live there because it was so violently racist and always had been; so blacks who found themselves having to work or travel through made sure they were gone by sundown.

    I’m not making this up–you can google it. I heard it straight from an in-law’s mouth, and he didn’t mince words. I have been a witness to this racist ignorance all my life, so I do not make light of this American horror story. None of us are perfect, but the struggle of black Americans is real and is continually denied every day in this nation, TO this day.

    So I want to set this record straight on what Porsha said, even if she isn’t an erudite representative of all that her family did in the Civil Rights Movement.

    When the first Cumming march took place, with Williams and his small group walking peacefully in protest of the blatant racism fostered by that county, the KKK showed up and attacked. Perhaps this is the march Porsha spoke about, as rocks were thrown.

    At any rate, you can read about it and see some photos here:,_January,_1987

    • Thank you for your research.

      But Wouldn’t Porsha also remember the KKK? And rocks being thrown? It would make a HUGE impression on me as an adult- wouldn’t it also on a child?

      If she was truly there, wouldn’t she say something- even in passing? Like “it was ugly”?

      • Ok- read the link.

        Maybe she went to the SECOND march that was attended by 20,000 people and protected by the Staties. That one was relatively peaceful compared to the first one that ended in mob violence.

        I guess I’ll give her a pass on this one but NEVER on the Underground Railroad foolishness.

        • Porsha did say they got rocks thrown at them. At six, she may not remember all. I imagine her family would have protected her, in any case?

    • I remember Oprah did a show on it that year IN Forsyth County and they referred to her with the N word while sitting in the audience of her show. ??? I bet Oprah counts her money and giggles about those white trash pigs.

      • AHEM…some of us trash fight the good fight, just so as you know. 😉

        Oprah doesn’t look like she’s laughing in the pic on that site. It really was awful. I just wanted to let y’all know Porsha could have marched with her GFather at 6.

      Thank you very much for this information

      • You’re welcome. I’m old enough to have memories of many bad things that have passed in our history, but need to be remembered, nonetheless.

    Just read all the comments on people about nene and her “breakdown” and tears spectacle …….

    Going to read here now. Didn’t watch it yet.

    More wahhhhhhhmbulances needed at Atlanta and NYC tomorrow ! 😢😭😪🚑💦💧💦

    Howdy! Hope all of you Mothers were treated yesterday! I got to be with my mother, all of my immediate family and a lot of other moms, it was a very good time! Raining so hard again, for so long. I do not know where all this water can go. And how about SC had a tropical storm in May?!

    I’m always eager to read Ramonacoaster, but might try to see that episode first…..if I can find a boat to get home, lol. Have a great day everyone!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Oh my …….. We are borderline needing water – not California levels but we’re behind. Send some over here !!!!

      I’m glad you had a lovely day and I hope your mom is doing well ? 😘💚💚

    Mothers: if something touched you yesterday, even the smallest thing, it would be fun if you could share it with us….

    • 2Stupid says:

      What I’ve suspected to be true, my kids my children validated. My 6 yr old is thankful that I make her food and wash her “close.” My 9 yr old said I am “ammotional” and tend to “iggerate” things. So in other words he thinks I am BSC and my daughter likens me to a maid-Ha! She did say I was the best mother she has ever had, considering I am the only mom, nos sure how much of a compliment that is-LOL. Better than last year when she said my favorite food was wine!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      My son and husband went shopping Saturday night but came home with nothing. I told them that’s cool because the next time I go out and about, I’ll just pick up something for myself.

      That wasn’t good enough for my son. He still bought a card and several bags of sunflower seeds for me (I’m a huge seed freak!) just so he could give me something on Mother’s Day. They were not my favorite seeds, but it was definitely the thought! The store that sells my faves was already closed on Saturday night.

      • TexasTart says:

        Happy shopping, Husker! 🌻🌻🌻🌻 we had amazing naturally occuring sunflowers at one time. Started some new ones in pots recently.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      My grandson, upon seeing my bright red lipstick, said “Gamma doonnn’t kiss me” then pointed to his lips and mine. I laughed so hard. I told him “Isaak it won’t come off.”
      I forgot I had given him and Papa Tom kisses before I left the house one day and I had regular lipstick on not the Revlon colorstay I usually wear.
      I kissed the top of his head later and he wiped at his hair. I told him it won’t come off touch it, so he touched my lips then looked at his finger. He was relieved, but he still remembered that other lipstick kiss.
      So precious!

    I believe it may have been you who said something about being able to see actual dates of instagrams being posted by hovering a certain way—-

    I’m on an iPhone and iPad – can we do that at all ? I’m so DONE with this 45 weeks / 34 days ago BS!!!!!
    My head is fast at some math but it’s annoying.
    Would you know if it works on Apple products ?????

    • Her bad Botox is really annoying me

      • TexasTart says:

        I don’t like the way she is forcing the dog’s face, goodness knows what poor Kingsley had to deal with….just had to say that, didn’t get to post on this pic last time.

        As for what you’re observing, is that comment primarily related to her mouth? If so, when she looks like this, I have always thought is was drugs, RX or otherwise that create this weird upper lip forced smile.

        • shamrockblonde says:

          hmm – I think she gets very uncomfortable having people stare at her for any length of time – she’s ok during conversations but standing still and having people look at her – take her pic makes her nervous – like they might see her real self – that’s what that face says to me – a voice in her head saying – ” please can I go now? I’m ok, see? everything is ok – I just have to go – can I go?”

          • TexasTart says:

            I get what you’re saying, Shammy, but I don’t think it’s for posing and being uncomfortable. She had this numb looking mouth when in Hawaii, when she and Ken were holed up in their hotel room, in Paris, in the restaurant at Kyle’s event, in a restaurant at Lisa’s event, when she had her makeup applied after searching the floor for pills on the floor episode/limo tissue episode. I associate the way her mouth looks to know whether she’s straight or not. I don’t mean she’s wasted here with her son, but she IS under the influence of something ITTHO.

            • shamrockblonde says:

              Thanks Texas Tart! – good point – hadn’t thought of that – may very well be – so many things swishing around in that head – I’m sure the drugs have only made it worse – perhaps, sadly, permanent –

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          No I’m talking about the little “bunny lines” gong from her tear trough and up across her nose.

          You can see where her Glabella muscle ( in the middle of her lower brow) has been injected but then how her other muscles are straining and are forming bizarre furrows above her eyebrows.

          While her upper lip DOES look frozen, Botox is typically only injected in the top half of the face.

    • designernailsdiana says:


    • I don’t have and iPhone or iPad, but I looked on my desktop at this pic you’ve posted and the date above it is April 6, 2015. The picture before it is April 5th, and is of the family’s Easter Sunday excursion posted by Kim and Monty, as well, at the beach at a restaurant, it appears to me.

      Does this help?

          Well I’m a speed typer so I prefer “home keys” on a proper computer or laptop most —

          Then having to learn on blackberries and iPhones I became speedy thumbs-👍🏻 but on an iPad I have to like use the index finger to find each button – the way people who don’t “home keys” type on computers type ? You know what I mean- searching aimlessly for the letter ? I hate that!!!!
          And I don’t have short fingers. I mean I don’t have Kristen/ RHONY alien👽 long fingers but I still can’t do that. Plus my iPad is an old old model (refurbed) and the weight …., ughhhhhh

          So – one day I hope to get a nice MacBook Air ….. Dreams 🌠🌈🌄

      • TexasTart says:

        When I read the post above, I was going to reply for you to take a Xanax and Caaaalm down. And then I thought, what the hell IS she talking about? LOL

        So Chismosa, would you happen to be a person that talks with their hands?

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          Kind of but not super crazy with them.

          I tend to point and my father yells at me bc that’s very rude in Greek culture and I think my friends think I point too ??

          My face is more expressionate than longfingers on NY (“Pretty”) so I guess I don’t need the hands to make a point. LOL

    Happy Mothers Day my beauties!! – hope your day was happy and light – We took my Mom out to eat at one of her favorite places in Garden City – it was great because we were all together – I got exactly what I wanted from my girls and from the grandchildren – home made cards! – it is all I ever ask for, and my daughters do them proud, with drawings, coloring and even a little sunset picture on the back with a little sign that indicates who made it! – too cute! the twins are funny with them – one writes all of these beautiful things, with almost no drawing, done in ink with only the color of the ink, and the other bedazzles it, uses ribbon, and even a feather with a simple hand drawn heart and the words “I love you so so much, Ga-Ga, always! xxoo” – Kris, who is 8 makes me a card too, and even Ryan makes me one, but I suspect Kris helps him with it – this time my name – Ga-Ga – was neatly printed – clearly by Kris – in the middle of a big sun – clearly drawn by Ryan – but seeing my children and my grandchildren all hugging my Mom, smiling and laughing, and just being together, was the icing on my Mother’s day cake – p.s. – my younger daughter wrote “every time I catch myself doing something exactly the way that you do it, or saying something that you always say, I smile and think of you and how much you mean to me” – that is exactly how I feel about my Mom too –

    Fredrik is out of his mind to ask for Emilia’s eggs….I just want to shake Luis – but I do love his THs – so so funny!!! – just watching his expressions, his hands – he does not have to say a word! loving Ryan – I thought he was going to have a panic attack when that chick pulled that artwork off the wall!

    I just finally watched mad men. No spoiling but I’m weepy.

    Karma ? Still working on trying to buy that belief !

  20. If you didn’t watch Southern Charm tonight: KATHRYN ROCKED WHITNEY’S WORLD! ha ha ha I was cheering her. Dayum right, Whitney, you chauvinist pig of a delusional wiener! You better back it up and back it up fast! And get off her jock, while you’re at it, mama’s boy! And here’s some more shade for you: STFU! 😀

    • TexasTart says:

      Oooh! Just as you predicted! I can’t wait to watch!

      • vilzvet says:

        Yeah that was great! Liking Kathryn alot this season. Don’t know why Cameran had to be a little pot stirrer though!

    • ladebra says:

      I’m not liking Kathryn. Never have, she’s not showing me anything new. I know! Maybe she should hook up with Craig. They seem to have more in common than her and her baby daddy.

      • Yeah, here’s the thing about Kathryn’s “unpleasant” look: it’s what happens when you get hooked up with a [Southern] man who is not now or ever going to give one chit about how you feel, promises he made and didn’t keep, or pretty much anything other than his delusions of male domination and how much he loves his mama. T-Rav, Whitney, Shep–perfect examples.

        So yeah, my heart goes out to Kathryn, because this is a war she won’t win.

        Not that I know anything about this myself…. :\

        • ladebra says:

          I get it. My parents are from from Mississippi. I married a man from Mississippi. I divorced a man from Mississippi. I went to Baylor. Still don’t care for Kathryn. But I like you 👍

          • LOL! I hope I don’t appear bitter…or something.

            Thing is, I’m long in the tooth. The young me…lots of fire and in-your-face, too. Yes, it ain’t pretty and I wish I’d learned to be more graceful before I made a fool out of myself infinitely.

            But here’s the thing about this episode: secrets ARE revealed–through WHITNEY!

            Whitney had no right to say what he did to and about Kathryn, on camera, REVEALING CONFIDENCES. What a GOSSIP. And Thomas was wrong to disparage the mother of his little girl to Whitney. IMO, of course. I know everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes, but Whitney was the worst person Thomas could have chosen.

            I mean, Thomas, Whitney, and Shep going off about Kathryn’s immaturity? How old are they? And which one of THEM is the icon for adult behavior? Psst! At least she’s actually YOUNG. I’d have smacked them both. Southern style. 😀

            Hubs told me the other day his pastor mentioned Billy Graham’s wife being asked if she ever though about divorcing her hubs and she said, No, but I have thought about killing him….

            Hail, fellow Southern wife, WELL MET!
