The truth comes out on 'Real Housewives'

For real, Phaedra?

Did you really think you would get away with the whole “they are inducing me at seven months pregnant” story? How awesome was it to have the doctor bust Fakedra’s story in front of her pastor mama as well as Kandi? We all knew that chick was full term, but it was still sweet to hear the doctor confirm it.

Kim was all over that, thanks in part to her nursing studies, and she knew it was all fakery. Turns out Kim knows even more about babies than we thought, but that's another blog.

It may be mama's rules that there is no baby-making before marriage, but didn't Phaedra tell us early on that she does things her way? And if she really wanted to keep that conception date hush hush, she should have gone much further away than Augusta, Georgia, to have that baby.

And speaking of the delivery: It was a whole, hot mess. Who complains about the size of the bed in their delivery room? She also managed to maintain that highly glossed lip look all the way through, not to mention those false eyelashes. I feel bad for that baby, who will grow up and be able to look back on the first moment his mama laid eyes on him and uttered these loving words: “Oh, gross.”

I’ve had just about all I can take from Fraudra and her assertion that she is a southern belle when she A) apparently doesn’t know what a lady finger cookie or pastry looks like and B) thinks said lady finger is stuffed with “barbarian cream.”

While we're talking about fakery, how you doing Dr. Tiy-E Muhammad? That card party at Sheree’s house found the good “doctor” being called out in spades (pun intended) regarding his background. I love how Kandi’s mom kept drilling him about whether or not he had gotten his Ph.D. online (turns out he did).

It was good to see everyone – including Lisa Wu Hartwell, who's been popping up here and there on episodes – look out for Sheree by trying to get to the bottom of exactly who this dude is and what's his story. Even Cynthia, who I am going to start calling Mahogany if she doesn't lose those head scarves, had a few questions about his background. My man had every right to break out in a  sweat.

Sheree seems like she is turning a corner, maintaining a civil relationship with her ex, Bob (who showed up at their daughter’s party), putting herself out there to date and generally looking way more fabulous this season than she did last.

But clearly there is no future for her and the “Love Doctor.” We figured that out when she showed up at the door to greet him in her bathrobe and flexi-rod curlers. I don’t know any woman who lets a man she's interested in see her like that so early in the relationship.

Perhaps NeNe can do some investigative reporting on him in her new role as “celebrity correspondent” for a local Atlanta television station. Didn’t you just love her batting her eyes and asserting that she was not at all a diva? Play the Lotto NeNe, not us, because we know you can diva it up with the best of them!

Next week will be the big showdown between Sheree and the supposed-to-be-doctor, and I can't wait for it. Can you?

    I think it's sad Phaedra has to go to extremes to hide her due date from her mom. If you do the crime you must do the time, of all people you know this. If you love Apollo the way you say you do then why are you letting your mother dictate what happens in your relationship. That poor baby and Apollo are in real trouble with Phaedra and her mother running things.Sheree while you were out buying a car you should have been doing your homework on the good doctor.

      Please give me a break! There are enough housewives shows on as it is, I can't stand to see another show dramatizing some housewife and all her fake drama. There have been real housewives around for ages; there educated, great moms, and great wives, and they do not need to be in front of a camera for the world world to see how real they are!

    I cannot stand FAKEDRA..she makes me ill with her supposedly "sophisticated" knowledge of EVERYTHING. Get a clue witch..we ALL know what a fake you are and you need to take your southern belled act on the road as a comedy special!
    The fake dr. and yourself make a great couple...poor Sheree, after actually acting like a class act this year to get saddled with a huckster.
    Kim...pregnant? hmnnn Wonder what Big Daddy thinks about this? Lets more expensive presents or cars or anything..hope your football player can afford you.
    Kandi..class act..
    Nene-you are a diva and try to dress a little more conservative..not all of us want to see your size 45 triple d breast spilling out of every dress you wear.
    Cynthia..could you be a little more happy about being engaged?? Peter seems really nice and he adores you.
