Let's dance 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Can we be honest here? Sheree’s dancing skills are only a notch or two above Kim’s singing.

Watching Sheree prance around on Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” during her appearance on the local version of “Dancing with the Stars” was almost as painful as Phaedra’s upcoming childbirth is bound to be.

I could get all deep and discuss the symbolism of her being kicked out of the upper room and into the public restroom to prepare and how that so clearly mirrors her personal life, but I won’t go there.

Instead, I'll say that the best thing about that charity event was watching how cheap the cast mates, with the exception of Kandi, were in their giving. That, and the wonderful editing which gave us Kandi yawning during the dance. Oh, and getting to witness the first time Kim laid eyes on her now reported boo, Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy Biermann. Honestly, who picks up a man by commenting on his butt? Our Kim is such a class act.

But I say all of the above to point out that anything was more fun than watching Sheree “dance.” The only thing more uncomfortable was watching Cynthia and Peter’s proposal.

Being a “supermodel” (ever notice how this show just lends itself to so many quotation marks?) you would have thought that Cynthia could have at least faked some enthusiasm at her man getting down on both knees and asking her to marry him in front of family and friends. Instead we received a run down of how it didn’t match up to what she had envisioned and Peter’s lament that it didn't matter if she hated it, he did it his way.

Talk about romantic!

I’m going to studiously ignore the foolishness that was Kim redecorating her youngest daughter’s bedroom for a ridiculous amount of cash and Fakedra’s lip curls about her impending motherhood. I would rather focus on the things about the show which brought me joy including Lawrence’s studio session. That boy can sing!

Who else is looking forward to next week’s episode with the revelations about Sheree’s “doctor” (again with the quote marks) and the “early” (at this point I can’t stop myself) arrival of Phaedra’s baby? I suspect it’s all going to be off the chain!

    I think that Phaedra is a Ho.She doesn't know when she is due,she keeps telling the girls different things when they ask her.I think that she slept with so many men that she's not sure who her baby daddy is.Let's face it any woman who only sleeps with one man would know when their due date is.

    Times must be really hard for people like these, to be considered famous for doing nothing. Talentless and laying on your back with your legs opened like 7-11 must be the new prerequisite to becoming a so-called Celebrity.

    I like Kandi and I think she is very hard working and Kim needs to stop trying to take advantage of someone that's trying to help her.Nene comes across as being very hard, but she does have a heart and I believe it's hurting. Phaedra is supposed to be so educated and her lack of knowledge regarding her pregnancy and the baby is unreal.Sheree is so controlling and always thinks she's better than her castmates, "Get over yourself"

    This was such an excellent article and expressed each and every one of my thoughts about this past episode....even down to Fakedra's lip curls. Funny because my friend and I call her Fakedra so it's so funny to see that someone else calls her that too....must be obvious ya think! I love the show and this is by far the juciest season ever!!!

    I just started watching Housewives of ATL. Can you tell me why Kim wears wigs? Was she married previously?

    • Not really here

      Kim initally claimed on the first series reunion that she had some disease that her doctors believed might be cancer and made her hair fall out. She started the wearing the wigs then. She retracted the statement when the other cast members got very upset at her claims that she thought she was dying of cancer and the fact your hair falls out as a side effect from cancer treatment, which she never had.

    I think that guy can sing. I had to DVR it because we went out to dinner. NeNe is the bomb. I love how shw corrected her son. I understand where she is coming from. You don't want to give up on them, but help them out, right out the door! I can't wait until next Sunday. LMBO!

    I still love the show. I glad Sheree even tried to dance though even when she said she can't. She was right, she can't.

      The expression on the other ladies faces while Sheree was dancing was priceless.
