I overdosed on TMI on Sunday night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
I really could have done without learning more about the ladies' sex lives, which they shared on Kandi’s show “Kandi Koated Nights.” Now I’m no prude, but seriously...there’s some stuff you discuss with your homegirls that's not really for public consumption. I honestly didn't need to know their "freak numbers" (which kept making me think of the sleep number bed).
But who knew NeNe was so reserved? I wonder if Peter appreciated Cynthia saying their sex life needs to be spiced up. And I thought Sheree was going to pass out when the stripper, Mr. Luscious, grabbed her out of the chair. (And speaking of TMI, I now think I could recognize Mr. Luscious from behind if ever I were to encounter him, if you know what I mean. That was too, too much.)
Then there was the $3,000 abstinence ring Kim bought her daughter Brielle. Kudos to the teen for making that choice, but that’s a lot of money to shell out for a promise. Miss Kim better hope her daughter means it and wasn’t humming “The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing” in her mind while they were at that jewelry shop.
Moving on to Phaedra, who returned home after birthing a most adorable child. He’s going to have to grow up gorgeous given that he bears the moniker of Aydan Adonis. I really wish Apollo had carried the baby in the house first before he swooped up Fakedra to carry her up the stairs.
I know folks who have had C-sections, and I don’t recall all of that drama and helplessness, especially after a full week in the hospital. Yet I should have known that it would be all about her and extra superficial: she made sure to note that her baby has an item created by the woman who has “crocheted for Oprah." I swear to goodness you can’t make this stuff up.
I expected more drama with Sheree and the good “doctor” hashing it out over who he is exactly. But their meeting wasn’t nearly as dramatic as NeNe and Greg.
Lots of folks love to point out that reality television isn't very real, but if NeNe was faking her pain over her marriage then she needs to become an actor, not cover them as a part-time celebrity correspondent.
Things got raw as NeNe took Greg to task for his less than flattering remarks about their marriage, which were aired on a local radio show. You knew she wasn’t playing when she removed her fake eyelashes during the chat. I had a moment where I was like, “Wait... Is she about to deck him?” when those lashes came off. Viewers saw her venture to an attorney’s office to start proceedings; it’s sad to see their relationship disintegrate.
Do we think Greg and NeNe will be able to get their relationship back on track? And how long before Phaedra demands a nanny for that new bundle of love?
