Tell me “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans: Am I the only one who would be totally content to watch an entire episode of just Kandi commenting on Kim’s foolishness?
That’s almost what we got with this week’s episode. It was made all the better thanks to Kandi’s deadpan delivery of her opinions about Kim who, along with Sweetie (really, that’s Kim’s assistant’s name), traveled to Palm Springs to perform at the White Party.
Okay, it does feel a little wrong to type the word “perform” to describe what Kim did. She basically walked around the stage to “Tardy for the Party” while trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction as hot bodied dudes gyrated about. Good times.
Kandi (did I mention I love her?) nailed it when she commented that Kim has made one single and now thinks she’s Lady Gaga. Kim was acting like she was the new gay icon at the event, and I loved how she fawned over the very attractive men there who clearly weren't checking for her.
To be frank, Kim needs to get over herself. Asking Kandi to sing back up, bringing along a limo filled with a ridiculous amount of Louis Vuitton luggage and generally acting like she has an actual music career had me shaking my head at Ms. Kim.
Phaedra, meanwhile, was not to be outdone in the “I think I’m the [expletive]” department and presented viewers with her theories about racial dynamics.
According to her, she and husband Apollo are unable to get on the same page about how best to discipline the child they're having together because he’s biracial. Apparently, he also can’t appreciate the finer foods she enjoys because of his racial make-up. Wow, I say. Just wow.
I pity the “relationship mentors” we met who are helping the couple to navigate their new marriage. While Apollo tried to express how important quality time was to him (apparently due in part to his incarceration for several years), Phaedra talked about how much she loves receiving gifts and how Apollo can just check with her staff to find out what she likes, to which I responded with a big ‘ol “SIGH.”
Phaedra was also quite annoyed that folks can’t let go of the fact that Apollo has been to prison, since in her opinion he’s no different than Martha Stewart. How she said that with a straight face is still a mystery to me.
Since Kim got so much screen time this week, we only got bits and pieces of the other ladies, including Sheree’s meeting with Dwight, where she called him out over his claim of having sunk $30K into her fashion show, as well as the introduction of her 24-year-old daughter. Where has that kid been hiding?
But in the end, I enjoyed this episode. Did you?
