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.

With four new series and brand new seasons of guilty pleasures like “The Rachel Zoe Project” and “The Real Housewives," Bravo is gearing up for one entertaining year.
Jewel and former “Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi will star in “Platinum Hit,” a new competition reality show featuring 12 aspiring songwriters. The series, to premiere summer 2011, will test the contestants' “creativity, patience and drive,” according to the network.
Reality programs “Million Dollar Decorators" (about L.A.-based interior designers with lavish budgets) “Pregnant in Heels” (which follows a Manhattan-based maternity concierge as she attends to her upscale clientele) and “Rocco’s Dinner Party” (on which chefs will compete to impress Rocco DiSpirito and his famous friends with the "ultimate dinner party") are also new to Bravo’s lineup.

A "Sip & See"? I'm glad I wasn't the only one who had never heard of Phaedra's alleged tradition of inviting folks over to drink and see your new baby. That child is super adorable, but you really don't need an excuse to have a cocktail party.
Everyone was on hand except NeNe to meet the new little prince. Seriously, Dwight has elevated them to royalty and announced just that as Phaedra, hubby and baby descended the staircase. I almost spit out my drink!

[Editor's Note: "Real Housewives of Atlanta" recapper Lisa Respers France is on vacation but will be back to talk "Housewives" drama on January 2.]
Last night's episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta" must've been filmed in the middle of a Georgia summer, because everyone clearly needed to chill out. Tensions were running high as the ghosts of past gossip came back up during face-to-face confrontation, and the ladies all seemed pretty stressed.
Kandi was working on her promo tour; NeNe was attempting to land celebrity interviews; Cynthia was trying to plan a wedding underneath the dinosaurs; and Phaedra was trying to be “mom, wife, lawyer and businesswoman.”
In fact, the only woman who didn’t seem a little frazzled and should’ve been was Kim.

We are shocked that it hadn't happened before.
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" super fan Anderson Cooper joined cast member NeNe Leakes on Bravos' "Watch What Happens Live" immediately following her hit show on Sunday night. Cooper has gone on record saying NeNe is one of his favorite "Housewives," and she in turn has referred to him as her "Boo," so host Andy Cohen brought the pair together for a bit of fun.
The two recapped some of the most memorable moments from Sunday night's show, including a laser machine which Kim used to purportedly burn off fat (while eating pizza) and Anderson questioned what cast member Dwight does for a living...to which NeNe responded, "Lie."

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.
