So much for "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" going out with a bang.
About the most exciting thing to come out of the Georgia peaches' gathering was the revelation that Fakedra is considering going into the funeral home business. Kandi and the sex toys I get, but dead people, Phaedra?
That came amidst the continued NeNe versus Kim showdown where the former tried to get louder than the latter. I am convinced that NeNe's strategy of bullying is to just keep raising her volume until the other person just can't take it anymore. FULL POST

With so much sass this season, I was really expecting more from part one of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion.
Folks were decidedly low-key on Sunday night’s show, which was filled with more subtle jabs than I've become used to from our Georgia peaches.
Cynthia threw a little shade when Andy asked her about the negative comments made regarding her fashion runway walk – the harshest of which came from Phaedra, who said Cynthia looked like a “pretzel dipped in cottage cheese.”

NeNe Leakes ended this season of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" with a big blowout with cast mate Kim Zolciak. Now it seems she has no love for fellow "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Star Jones, either.
"I'm not feeling Star Jones, I'm sorry," Leakes told talk show host Wendy Williams on February 8. "I gave her a chance when I first got there, I did."
While Leakes tried to be nice, the two women just couldn't get along.
"Star, I'm just going to tell you, Star is a trip — like she is very special, I really — she’s special," Leakes says of the former "The View" co-host. " No seriously — I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire."
The battle begins when "Celebrity Apprentice" — which features a cast that includes La Toya Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Meat Loaf and David Cassidy, among others — returns to NBC on March 6.

There were lots of tears during Sunday night’s finale of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Cynthia cried over her money woes, her mother and her sister cried over her choice of husband, Peter cried as he watched his bride walk down the aisle and I cried over that wedding gown.
Cynthia is a gorgeous, gorgeous woman but I just wasn’t feeling her marital get-up, which looked to me like a platinum trash bag which was – in the words of my colleague Bree – reaching up to choke the very life out of her. The whole wedding was just sad for so, so many reasons.

As fans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" eagerly await Sunday's season finale, one of the cast members who will figure prominently in that episode is having his say.
Peter Thomas is set to marry cast member Cynthia Bailey on Sunday's show, and Thomas recently took to the pages of Uptown magazine to get a few things off his chest. Thomas, who formerly owned an Atlanta club also named "Uptown," used the interview as the opportunity to have his say on things viewers have been privy to all season.
Fans have watched as Thomas struggled to save his business, and Bailey shared that she had invested some coin into the establishment. When the doors closed on the club, Bailey worried that she would never see a return on her investment.

Raise your hand if you were disgusted by NeNe's behavior on Sunday night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
I am raising both hands and my legs.
She worked my nerves soooo much! I ordinarily try to stay out of either Camp Kim or Camp NeNe, but this time around I thought NeNe was completely out of control. All that loud talking and craziness was so unnecessary.
