The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Baby Shower Brawlin'

by at . Comments

Since when does a baby shower include brawling house husbands? Looks like that's the way they do things in Atlanta, or at least on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

"Shower the Baby" gave Kim Zolciak a baby shower to rival most wedding receptions and we'll break down the drama in The Hollywood Gossip's weekly +/- review.

But first we have to sift through the boring stuff ...

Looks like Sheree's building herself a new McMansion but she's being practical. It will only have the necessities: a ballroom, a spa area, a space for the DJ and a theater. Just the basics. Plus 8 because she's planned ahead. There's enough room to expand later if 8,000 square feet becomes too cramped.

NeNe and estranged husband Gregg have a quick and awkward chat when he comes to pick up their son. NeNe wants to know if he's dating anyone. He says no but then she won't answer the same question. Minus 5. If you're going to ask the question, expect to have to answer it.

Once he's gone, NeNe admits she doesn't think she can sign the divorce papers. Minus 7. Well where does that leave them? They certainly don't seem happy so will they continue to live in limbo or head back to a miserable marriage?

Apollo's on edge these days and even adorable little Aiden can't seem to make it better. He got pulled over and roughed up by the cops. Sounds like it was all a case of mistaken identity and he was let go but that hasn't stopped the gossip from spreading all over town.

Unfortunately, his criminal record is something he's always going to have to deal with. What I can't handle are Phaedra's sweatpants: hot pink with HIS printed across the butt. Girl, that's just tacky. Minus 5.

Player Please

Cynthia gets a visit from her daughter's daddy, Peter and Plus 10 for everyone getting along so well but I have to wonder how long it will last. Peter just doesn't seem the type who goes out of his way to get along with people.

Which brings us to Kim's baby shower. She says she wants to make the shower special for Kroy. Really? How many guys are that interested in baby showers?

Of course this was no ordinary shower. Wasn't Kim the one who said that Phaedra's shower was over the top. Pot ... meet kettle. Minus 8. With 130 guests this baby shower rivaled most wedding receptions.

But I've got to throw in a Plus 5. I loved that cake.

Prior to the shower we saw the entire family getting ready. How cute was Kroy doing the girls' nails. Plus 10. Just plain adorable.

Overall, the baby shower is quite an event. Minus a mildly embarrassing incident where Kim's father gives Phaedra a hard sell on his business (awkward), everything is gorgeous and classy. Plus 13. That is until Cynthia and Peter show up.

Phaedra Pic

First off, they show up five hours late. Minus 11. What was the point of coming at all and without a gift, no less? Had to agree with Phaedra on this one. "Were they looking for refreshments? Were they out of snacks at their house?"

And it only gets worse from there. Turns out Peter trashed the ladies in a magazine interview. Minus 10. Honestly, what man talks about his wife's friends in an interview? One who knows that's the only way he can grab the spotlight and more than willing to stir up trouble.

Phaedra was the first to bring up the gorilla in the room and things went down hill from there. Peter walked in with a chip on his shoulder and Apollo looked like he was more than willing to knock it off. If Peter keeps poking that bear he might find it bites back and I don't think he can take on Apollo. After some loud words and male posturing, it looks like Apollo walks away first.

It may have been a lot of drama for a normal baby shower but the Housewives of Atlanta need to take a look at The Real Housewives of New Jersey if they want some real drama. Here, we had no cursing, table flipping, punches thrown, or children sent screaming from the room. Minus 15 because in comparison you can't really call this one a brawl. Atlanta needs to step up their game.



You can be bhneid, and it doesn't matter until the mother makes a stink. And it's up to the mother if his life is going to be a living hell. At least in ATL. It is different in other states.


i think sheree do hate on NeNe. so what if NeNe believes she's rich, at least she is promoting her self and making her money. many people have different definition of rich. Sheree is living off child support, what has she really done soo far her, brand SHE has not even launched. and the part where Peter borrowed money from Cynthia, guess what she's his wife. i think people should back off. it not embrassing for a husband to borrow money from his wife. both knew about each financial situation before they married. i dont understand why many believe its wrong for a man to borrow money from his wife. woman does the same thing. (im not gender bias becaus eim a female)i think blame should go to pheadra for st


During the "showdown" at Kim's event. Just like any other racist Southern white said "This is not the hood." Come on Kim, clearly you are with the wrong housewives.... Kim is a racist! Slavery is over, show your assistant more respect with dignity.


Love Paedra's comment : "Were they out of snacks at their house?"I live near Bar One in Atlanta, it's only a block from our house there, so I think it's high time my husband and I paid a little visit. We always try to support our neighborhood there.Please, can anyone answer this question: What does NeNe do that permits her tocall herself "rich"? Somehow, I doubt the pay from this show is substantial enough to justify qualifying oneself as "rich."I'm also sure that being an intern at 11-Alive news in Atlanta is not exactly a well-paying gig, if it even pays at all!So how exactly could you be rich, NeNe? Are you some sort of secret heiress? Why shore, of course you are, sugar.


Peter won that arguement with apollo. Apollo seemed a little tense and nervous to me.


Phaedra Parks the 'southern bell', in actuality she puts her foot in her mouth every chance she gets. Phaedra you stayed in the country too long, law might work for you if you learn how to speak appropriately.
Phaedra is not a asset to the franchise, get rid of her!


Kim is such a ego maniac; Kim has a personality disorder and sooner or later she will show her real self to Croy and he will have to put her in her place; Kim is not a rich princess, she is dependent upon men to validate her as a woman. Kim wants to show the entire world how she hates Black people; she disrespects the other housewives and uses Sweety as a flunky. Please get her off of the Real Housewives of Atlanta she is a disgrace; and a poor example for a mother.


What world does Beyonnca/Nene live in? Its obvious that this is Nene or one of her cloneys. This article isnt even about Sheree. Furthermore, what show are you watching? I doubt ANY of these women are jealous of Nene! Why would they be? Maybe you should think before you type. Follow Nene on Twitter and every week its Nene who cant stop talking about Shere, Kim, Phaedra! Nene hates herself and anyone that is happy. She is pathetic and its apparent that she is not use to anything. She is the only one on the show who was living a lie and guess which dummy fell for it, Beyonnca? You are delirious and have no clue along with loud mouth, ghetto, man looking, ape looking, envious, hateful, sorry Nene. I hope she is taken off the show. She represents nothing or no one that I know or want to know. Also, Nene stop with the I'm rich crap, we all know your NOT! Maybe one day, but today, NOT!


Sheree's so pathetic, she never misses an opportunity to bash NeNe. Why did Peter and Apolo's argument lead Sheree's brain to NeNe. Sheree said " Peter is just like NeNe, All talk". Sheree is so obsessed with NeNe. What's funny is how NeNe doesn't even care to mension Sheree's name. NeNe could care less. It was refreshing to see NeNe on Wendy Williams show and when asked about Sheree, NeNe down played the subject then seg-wayed to something else. I was so proud. Who is Sheree anyway. I noticed on Bravo's "Before they were Real Housewives of Atlanta" the show depicted NeNe, Kandi, Phaedra and Kim. The fact that Sheree had no interesting backstory for Bravo to dig up spoke valumes. Sheree was obviously as boring then as she is now.


I think it was a nice gesture for her boyfriend since like she said it was his first child and it was a boy. At the end of the day they would never do anything less than what the producers want them to do.
