Kim-tervention fails on 'Real Housewives'

I am really wondering if there is going to be a major blowup this season on every episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

We can only hope.

Thursday night’s episode could have almost been titled “Sheree gets into it part II.”

After the huge blowup with party planner Anthony on the season premiere, this time around she faced off with Kim after NeNe arranged a night out for the three of them to clear the air.

There has been a lot of "she said, she said" going on in the ATL, and kudos to NeNe for wanting to put all of the cards on the table after she and Kim had earlier met and made peace.

It all started out reasonably, but you knew it was about to go bad when NeNe choked on her wine after Sheree said Kim had talked badly about NeNe’s husband Greg and called him broke.

Soon accusations of lies were flying back and forth between Kim and Sheree, and there was lots of cussing and fussing as Sheree denied that she ever told Kim that NeNe and her family were renting a house (which is apparently a huge diss in a city as house-proud as Atlanta).

NeNe clearly didn’t know who to believe, and the fight escalated enough for Sheree to follow Kim outside in some drama to be continued on episode three. I wonder how all this factors in to reports that Kim and NeNe recently got into a confrontation in which Kim alleges that NeNe tried to choke her.

So who do you believe told the truth at the dinner? Should the three women just give up on the friendship or at least try and be frenemies?

    I'm on Team Kim. During the fight episode I felt nene and Sheree just wouldn't drop it, they just kept coming and coming, as Kim tried to walk away many times. I like Nene and get it that she wanted to fix things but I thought it was way over the top. Made me wonder if the producers made her keep trying, keep trying... It was awful. I believe Kim. Kim is a character, but she is a good Mom and I think she is a friend worth keeping for Nene. I feel she got caught up in the Sheree thing. So haughty, so delusional. Sheree is the one that bad rapped Nene to Kim when they started being friends. Sheree is the one that left Nene out of her home. Sheree, Sheree, Shree – a little bit getto!

    Ok...I watched last season and I thought it was..just ok. But I can't see through an entire episode of this new season. All of these women (with the exception of Kandi) are very childish.

    It seems like they all want to pick on Kim (because she is the most vulnerable) when they all have said things about each other so they should just let that mess go. LIsa is the fakest of them all in my opionion because she stirs up the drama and then sits back and watches it unfold and then play the "innocent" role.
    I honestly think she made up some "beef" with Kim just to be on NeNe's " I hate Kim bandwagon"
    It's sad and a shame that these are the best that Bravo could find for their show. They do not represent the elite classy wealthy housewives of Atlanta at all.

    If anyone doesn't think this is how the black /white sisterhood acts together , you 've never been around this dynamic . It is like no other relationship . And the sisters alone towards each other , you're crazy if you don't believe some of them act this way . Deep, deep , deep seated issues.

Unfortunately, wannabes and has-beens will sign on for almost anything to get them in the spotlight and the TV execs will be there to breast feeds us all the way to the bank.

    This season is off the chain, but its a little on the unrealistic side too.

    KHANDI, DONT DO IT BOO!...LISTEN TO YOUR MOMMA!

    Take a look at USHERs marriage. Remember how his mom was against him marrying old girl. well just look at them now, heading for divorce court. Sometimes you need to let others be your eyes. GURL,
    I know he may be BANGIN it out, but theres another man out there for you.

    In my opinion, Lisa is the FAKE one here... She started all of the drama last season, and seems to take a back seat this season with her PHYNE ass husband. THeres a reason Keith Sweat got rid of her.

    NeNe is a drunkard (she needs a drink for everything).

    Sheree was my favorite girl last season with class, but I dont know what happened to her. Is it your fall from grace?

    Kim is somewhat sane, but gets caught up in the drama.

    I find the women's behavior last night to be just horrible. I was mortified, I couldn't continue to watch as I was so embarrased by the way they were behaving. It was sad to see. If you are truly going to try and mend fences and want to show our children how to use their words and what responsible adults act like, to and find other solutions, to issues that will come up, the ladies last night failed tremendously.

    As far as I am concerned the Housewives of Atlanta are the lowest form of life compared to the other Housewives. They make the OC Housewives look good and I think that they are a bunch of lowlifes. Just because you have money, doesn't mean you have class and these ladies prove that.

    Do people really thing this Bravo-manufactured drama is the least bit real? Nene even said on a talk show that the women of Housewives shows are "characters created by Bravo" and that the only time these womens associate with each other is when the cameras are rolling.

    I think Sheree is a mess and needs professional help (or anger management). Kim apologized and that should be enough! Sheree didn't cop to anything, but they are all guilty of backstabbing.

    I think that there is a lot of blame to go around when it comes to the trash talking. If they really wanted to make peace and be friends, they each should have started by owning up to something that they said and apologize to the person that they said it about. Then from there if someone wanted to bring up another remark that they heard they could address it with that person. That would have opened the door for everyone to be honest. I think their biggest problem is that no one want to admit they were wrong. Nene is about the only one I like on that show Deshawn is gone. The rest of them could own up to the truth about themselves including Lisa. To me she is the worst kind because she pretends that she doesn't have anything to do with the arguments when really she is the one that through flames on the fire.

    They are all beyond ghetto! Kim is so tacky and old looking. We love the other housewives shows but this one is so low class we stopped watching Atlanta after season 1. The other city gals seemed to learn after their season 1's that they all needed to behave better and most made effort to not come across so badly, but Atlanta has not learned that lesson from reading this blog site/update. Very sad what a bunch of low class women of Atlanta. Their very foul language was being bleeped so much you can't even understand them. Their behavior is ghetto (the equivalent of low class white trash).

    The TRUE ELITE of Atlanta, act nothing like these ladies! They don't consist of a bunch of women married to ball players and women who are mistresses of wealthy men. The elite are the ones who would never do a show like this because they don't have time, and it's beneath them! All Bravo did was find a bunch of women with a few extra dollars in their bank accounts who were ok with having their business put on tv and to provide some entertainment. That being said, I do have to say that I still watch and love this show. But as far as them considering themselves to be the wealthy elite of Atlanta...they are WAY off base with that. Even poor Sheree, who experienced foreclosure, is still trying to put on heirs. Foreclosure happens to a lot of people, and it's a terrible thing, but she's still trying to walk around like a queen.

    Where do I start? There seems to be a lot of rock throwing and then hiding hands behind their backs (ahemmm Lisa and Sheree)! Last season's blow up with NeNe and Kim started when Lisa told Sheree about the song NeNe sung while drunk about Kim's inability to sing. During the reunion, Lisa got defensive in trying to cover her butt with Kim by threatening to toss her over the couch. Classic... Then this season Sheree and Kim get into it over he-said, she-said started by Sheree (trying to cover her butt). It seems to me that these ladies are fronting having class, (which by the way, money doesn't make you classy) when their actions are juvenile and low budget.

    Anyone who takes seriously the 'he said/she said' business is wasting their time. People will talk regardless. And NeNe, Sheree and Kim should be ashamed of themselves for not having more self control. They don't know how to act. I can barely watch the show. All they do is yell and scream. It's ridiculous and their behavior is deplorable. Get a life, please. Then you won't have time to waste on nonsense like who said what about me. Who cares?

    It's really interesting how the tables have turned. I wonder what happened between this season and last where Sheree and Kim stopped being friends. They were "thick as thieves" when they were hating on NeNe. And I am sure both of them were equally responsible for talking mess about Greg's finances. The problem is is that neither one of them took ownership for anything that was said. Somebody said something!

    As for Lisa, the only reason she's hating Kim so much is beacuse she got exposed for helping instigate the issue about the song. Ya'll betta watch out for her!! Lol.

    So far so good for Kandi. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Hope her marriage works out. People need to stop hating on her fiance so much.

For me its like watching a car wreck, its bad and you pray for the people involved but you cant take your eyes off of it. Do I wish these Black Women would present themselves in a better light, of course. I started watching this last season to get of glimpse of how the other side lives, but now I see I can take a walk thru my old neighborhood and see the exact same thing. I dont knock there hustle but Bravo wouldnt show it if we didnt watch it. So instead of knocking them, Start with the MAN in the MIRROR and think about how you give this show a hour of their time every week. It entertainment People!!!!!

    Where do I begin? This is trash TV at it's finest.
    The sad part is people in other parts of the country think these women represent southern women. What a huge insult to every genuine, respectable, well mannered Southern woman. We are known for our "love of drama" but no true Souther lady would ever make such a sad spectacle of herself. Not in public or in private.
    If this show is proof of anything it is that no amount of money or selective editing can give you class. It's something you're either born with or learn from the adults who raise you. Clearly NONE of these women have a clue what REAL housewives of Atlanta are like.

    I believe Kim if I am to believe any of this drama at all. NeNe was on a talk show and openly said that she does not associate with any of the women outside of the show. So, if they only associate with each other during the brief taping of the show....how could they really be friends. All of it is made for tv drama so I only watch it for entertainment value. I certainly don't think it is a candid look at how upper class people live. I am middle class and my friends certainly don't act as tacky as these women or the other tacky women on the other "real" housewives shows ESPECIALLY the tacky tacky tacky women in New Jersey!!!

Kim can't possibly be making up all this, and they are the innocent ones.(last year's episode they were blaming Kim).Stick to you guns Kim and don't let them Bully you.

    I think that if you look at Sheree's behavior with the party planner–who was a completely unprofessional idiot unable to grasp that the woman was his customer, not his underling–and then with Kim, it is clear she has no qualms about a physical confrontation. This is not the behavior of a balanced adult. She must enjoy getting into these contests of will and provoking behavior. It will be her own fault if she is physically hurt during one of these encounters.
    We can all tell why she was divorced.
    Its time for her to learn how adults behave and how to exercise some self-control in confrontational situations. It never HAS to escalate the way it does when she carries on this way.
    Her accusations toward Kim are disproven by the footage. She has a problem that needs to be addressed before her children pick up on this bad habit of hers.

    FIRST – it is a TV show loosely based on reality. NONE of these women, with the exception of Khandi and somewhat from season one, Deshawn, is making their own money or contributing financially to their current or fomer marriages – have plan not just relying on your man as a "kept woman." Lisa, while she appears to "keep it real" there in lies a different issue when you really look at her character overall. As for Sheree, NeNe and Kim – GROW UP LADIES – all three of them have "done dirt" on the other – just be women and admit it and move on to another "story line." Overall, the show does not represent well for women in general (black women especially) – it only further perpetuates the sterotypes of women and their "girlfriend – frenemies drama" that is played out in the media (women not getting along with each other, being catty, being self-absorbed, etc.) What the ladies of RHW-ATL fail to realize is that all this show does is expose the content of your character to millions nationwide. Ladies, BRAVO has succeeded in its mission to get you a "show" and they have literally "shown you out" and not in a good way, why, because NeNe, Sheree, Kim and Lisa fail to realize, your personality, talent, "reality show" can take you places, expose you to things, and get you "celebrity status", but your character will ultimately show the world who you really are.

    These women give Atlanta a bad name. I know lots of women in Atlanta – black, white, native American, etc. – and none of them are this crazy. The wealthy women I know don't live up off of I-85 near Buford, either, as this bunch does. I feel for their kids, they have to go to school and hear people talking about the crazy thing their mother did on TV last night.

    I think NeNe needs to grow up and stop pretending like she's trying to solve problems and not just create drama for good tv. They need to be adults and squash it all and say if you said anything then apologize and we're good. What's the point in trying to figure out he said, she said? NeNe is immature and loves drama. Her husband told her to let it go but of course she wanted all three of them to meet anyway.

    I truly beleive that their is alot of she say she say, BUT I commend Sheree for how she stood her grounds. I really didnt care for her last season but I love her this season. As for Kim she is a piece of work I think if they back stabing keeps going on which it did by Kim right before she met with Sheree and NeNe they dont need to be friends. I wish the best for all of the ladies on the show.

    Honestly, I think this is all drama made for TV... who really behaves like that? I think its best for them to move on and at least be "fenemies". They all talked about each other behind their backs so how can you ever trust them as friends? I do think Sherree was not being honest with NeNe... I believe she did say those things because she's two-faced like that. All of them are! The only one that really keeps it real on that show is Lisa!
