Welcome to the "Real High Schoolers of Atlanta."
Think about it - Sunday night had all of the elements. There was the "friend contract" Cynthia presented to NeNe, complete with the "do you want to be my friend, check yes or no" box; Dwight and Phaedra talked trash about Kim and Cynthia behind their backs; NeNe and Kim had a smoke break; there was a play production co-starring Sheree that no one seemed to be able to rouse much interest for; and NeNe was crushing on her bestie's man, Cynthia's fiance Peter.
Yep, that pretty much sounds just like my high school experience. Let's start with Fakedra, who I was amazed to observe actually breastfeeding her child. If ever I thought there was someone who would hire a wet-nurse it would be that one.
Anyhoo, Dwight dropped a dime on Kim and Cynthia and let it be known that those two were at Kandi's birthday party questioning Fakedra's story about being induced early. The new mom actually had a few good zingers, including one about Kim's alleged career as a nurse: "Just cause you strip in a nurse's outfit does not make you a nurse." HA! Good one Fakedra!
Meanwhile, Sheree made her acting debut in a local play - if you could even call it that since she appeared to be on stage all of two seconds. I must hand it to her, though, because her acting seems to be improving. She was much better when she ran lines with Kandi than when she auditioned for the agency. Seems like Miss Sheree has been putting in some work.
Unlike Kim, who just couldn't focus at her dance rehearsal for her gig to open for Kandi on tour. Kim says she took dance for 16 years, but I wasn't seeing any of that in rehearsal. I'm really going to need her to focus.
Last, but certainly not least, would be Cynthia and NeNe's little chat in Kim's kitchen. When Cynthia first whipped out the "friend contract" I thought it was cute, but the more she ran through the rules the more I started thinking, "Yeah, that's a bit much Boo." It's one thing to treasure a friendship, but it's quite another to hem your girl up over the counter and make her sign a document promising never to go to bed angry – even if it is meant as a joke.
And while I'm glad that NeNe and Peter made up, her profession of being back in love with him made me shift a bit uncomfortably on my couch. As my good friend's dad always says: a joke is a joke, but a true joke ain't no joke.
Do we think Cynthia needs to worry that NeNe is a bit too into her man? Sound off.
