Part of the danger of starting off the season with lots of battles and wig pulling is that Thursday night’s regular episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” came off a little blah.
The show wasn’t at all helped by the fact that it was preceded by the director’s cut of the “Unbeweavable” episode from the week before, which featured the scream-fest between Kim and Sheree.
There were even more taunts and insults between the pair in the director’s cut, and just when you thought that fight couldn’t get any better, Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael showed up in a totally inexplicable moment.
First Jon Gosselin and now Kim? Does Michael Lohan somehow make a living hanging out with reality stars? NeNe was priceless as she yelled “Hey, Mr. Lindsay Lohan’s daddy, you take your ass back to Malibu!”
So by the time we got to the regularly scheduled episode of “Housewives,” it all felt kind of staid: more heartbreak for Kandi as her mother continues to refuse to accept her fiancé, sadness for Lisa about possibly visiting her brother’s grave and outrage for Kim that her nanny left her kids alone to go buy sanitary products.
I found the most entertainment with Dwight and Sheree’s attempt at speed dating. I swear Dwight needs his own spin-off show. The Real Divos of Atlanta perhaps?
