Can anyone tell me how many times Kim and NeNe have stopped being friends?
Honestly, these two are the quintessential definition of "frenemies," and we watched it blow up yet again on Sunday night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Things were already tense enough on the Kandi and Kim tour bus, what with Kim's constant complaints and requests to pull over every few miles for a smoke break. And Kandi's nerves were completely worn out with Kim and Sweetie's mouths.
But things really came to a head when Kim invited NeNe to join them in Orlando and NeNe proceeded to get all up in Kim's face on the tour bus and called Sweetie Kim's "slave." Oh snap! Did you really have to go there NeNe?
Haven't we done a pretty good job these past few seasons of not making it all about race? And in one episode we get the "white-people-like-to-go-barefoot" theory and Sweetie gets called a slave. I kept waiting for Fakedra to pop up and offer Kim some canned meat.
Now, I'm not one to advocate violence, but I wouldn't have been mad at Kim if she got all up in NeNe's behind for that mess because I'm sick of NeNe getting loud with folks. She was absolutely out of order on this one.
Cynthia and Peter were also having issues as he announced that he had to shut down his Uptown supper club. Cynthia's initial reaction was that now she's not going to get the money invested back, which was very honest.
Then she cried over the fact that it also means they may not be able to get married surrounded by dinosaur bones like she had planned. Peter took the stance of "I'm not telling you anything else ever again." FYI, that's not a good look for a marriage. The idea is to talk things out and compromise, not hide information because it might upset your partner. Methinks these two better get Hill Harper back for another session.
There were just too many classic moments in this episode to even go into: Kim's hairstylist, Derek J., tipping into that BBQ spot in rural Georgia in his heels; the meet and greet in the beauty salon; Phaedra's baby boy vomiting in Cynthia's cleavage; Kim alternately crooning to Kroy on the phone and screaming for Sweetie to open the door.
The "Keeping It Real" award this week is shared by Cynthia's sister, who advised her that she should postpone the wedding, and Apollo, who couldn't wait for Fakedra to pack up and go on the girls trip to Miami - which we'll all get to enjoy in next week's episode.
