The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: South Africa, Home Away From Home

by at . Comments

After an episode of packing last week, The Real Housewives of Atlanta officially arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on Sunday and the country will never be the same.

We relive the etiquette lessons and unbelievable screeching in THG's +/- recap!

With Kroy off at training camp, Kim stays home with the new baby and we barely see her except for a family dinner with her parents. Have I mentioned I find her parents kind of creepy? Her mom says very little and her dad says far too much.

Add to it that they can't wait for Kim to finish feeding the baby to sit down to eat. Now that's just rude. Minus 9.

In South Africa

Back at the airport, our trip to Africa which starts off quietly enough. The ladies take a 16-hour flight where they remove their makeup and have some wine. Cynthia even laughs when NeNe removes an eyebrow and NeNe doesn't seem to mind.

Or at least she didn't hurt her. Plus 8 for a good beginning.

NeNe says the group is divided between the tall women (over 5'9") and the almost midgets. It seems like an exaggeration until you witness Phaedra and Kandi standing next to Cynthia and NeNe and realize she's almost not kidding. Plus 5.

How much luggage do these women need for a 10-day trip? Watching them haul it through the airport is just ridiculous. They can't even manage an elevator without help. And we wonder why other countries think Americans are dumb. Minus 10.

The hotel penthouse suite is stunning but before they even get there Marlo is already bitching that she won't share a bathroom. Well, since the host didn't know she was coming she should be thankful she isn't sharing a bed with NeNe.
Cheers to Africa

The bus ride to the hotel has Marlo giving the ladies lessons in etiquette. How much etiquette do you think they teach in prison? Minus 12 because we doubt it has anything to do with the proper way to pass the salt.

Marlo wants the names of the hotel staff that will be servicing their room and she wants to know if they call out sick. I guess when you've got a criminal history you expect the same from those around you. Minus 7. It pays to be cautious but not rude.

Kandi's great as Marlo's getting on her last nerve. Over breakfast she asks "Are you going to give us etiquette lessons all day?" And then she looks as though she'd like to throw Marlo overboard while they're on the yacht. Plus 10.

We never thought much of Cynthia but she hit an all time low this week. First she mocks Phaedra's robe over breakfast and then she gloats over how she was invited to Sheree's friend's dinner while NeNe and Marlo were not.

Minus 15 because the girl couldn't make it across the penthouse fast enough to share the news. Talk about a trouble maker.

Kim and KJ

Unsurprisingly, Marlo storms off to give Sheree a piece of her mind. The two women can't stop screeching at one another sniping about one anothers money and sexual history. It's all about how many houses, cars, and watches they have.

Minus 12. How about we count how many brain cells each has. That will be quicker.

As the rest of the group gapes at the brawling duo, NeNe delivers one of the best lines of the night: "Is this how I look in an argument because they look absolutely stupid."

Plus 10 for realizing it.

As Marlo yells for Sheree to go off and spend the night with her bleeping gay friends using a word that rhymes with maggot, Kandi gets the best dig in of the night. "Now I don't know etiquette but I know you're not suppose to say that."

It's all so stupid that it's actually entertaining and it almost has us looking forward to the rest of this African adventure.

EPISODE TOTAL: -32! SEASON TOTAL: -241!

(in Phaedra's voice)Everybody knows that the Real Housewives franchise are all based on the same template. They each have a bully type husband,women starting fashion lines and/or cookbooks,they have a wedding or vow renewal every season,they take a trip every season plus they have disrespectful children etc. Need I say more?

Why do folks like Kandi. I hate that she sparks things up and then lay low as tho she hadn't anything to do with it. I hate listening to her speak. Open her mouth and that means her teeth when she speaks. Just awful! Kick her off and put her mom on the show. She's not even a housewife... wait the only married ones is Phaedra and Cynthia. I agree no one works except Phaedra and Kandi. I'm glad Marlo stepped to Sheree; and I truly believe Sheree kept the words going because of the audio/video crew would stop any issue... but she's not a match for Marlo... she better google her... LOL

CYNTHIA REALLY NEEDS TO DIVORCE THAT ARROGENT ASS BASTARD SHE IS WITH. I KNOW HIS KIND THEY CAN PRETEND TO LOVE AND MAKE YOU THINK THE REALLY DO IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF HIS KIND. SHE IS TRING TO GO TO MARRIAGE CONSELING AND SHE WILL SEE IT WAS ALL A WASTE OF TIME BECAUSE HE JUST DOESNT KNOW HOW TO CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT HIMSELF AND HE WILL NEVER BE ANY DIFFRENT. SHE IS GOING TO RUIN HER KIND SPIRIT. SHE NEEDS TO MOVE BACK TO NEW YORK. I LIVED IN ATL AND IT'S SO FAKE AND PRETENSIOUS THERE. SHE IS SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO ONLY SEEKS TO DEFILE HER KIND SPRITED NATURE AND SHE REALLY IS IN DANGER IF THIS SHOW IS FOR REAL. SHE REALLY NEEDS TO GET AWAY FROM ALL THE PEOPLE SHE SURRONDS HERSELF WITH.

of course cynthia started all the shit by running her big mouth off 2 these big ugly ass bitches. marlo thinks she's so bad but nothing like a big hot stink ass fart other than her side-kick nene the moose. shree & marlo looked so stupid the way their man ass faces were & voices sounding off. i can't wait 4 nene & marlo 2 turn against 1 another oh boy what a big throw down it would be. next time kandi, phadra, & shree go on a trip without the other uglyass loud mouth black bitches.

Are *we to believe that Child Support Begging Sheree was responsible for providing this luxury trip that included a yacht and penthouse dreams. I am under the impression that The Housewives franchise is to be watched like a soap opera with very little emotional attachment. When *these mean girl characters start getting on your Nerves, it is time to switch channels and get back to your own definition of sanity and reality!!

Remember.... the show creates drama to keep us tuning in; producers encourages and promotes this type of behavior for ratings if nothing else. I am amused that folks don't realize this when posting comments. Having said that, I was taken aback by Cynthia's "troublemaking antics" when she ran across the hall to tell NeNe and Marlo what Sheree had said. Cynthia told the "dynamic duo" Sheree specifically said that Marlo was not invited. No Cynthia; that is not what Sheree said; when Sheree extended the invite to you, you asked Sheree, "does this mean the other two are not invited?" Sheree answered, "Yes". Cynthia, you then ran across the hall to tell the "dynamic duo" that Sheree specifically said that Marlo was not invited. I lost some respect for Cynthia; you are in fact, a troublemaker. Furthermore, you are a fashion model..... why in the world would you wear black opaque stockings with a strapless ummer dress????

Wow,how sad these woman act this way. I had to laugh at them. What entertainment. I find them all to be a bad joke. Good luck.

If Ne-Ne was not on this show they would have nothing she is sooo funny with her funny faces and big eyes ..Sheree is a bitch and Marlo is too much telling Sheree she returns items at Neiman Marcus I was laughing sooo hard at Sheree's face bitch would not back down !! I do like Phaedra with her southern accent she is sweet. Cynthia is a trouble maker and a child ...Kandi just wants no drama !! Marlo's manners went out the window when she wasn't invited to the party (Don't be Tardy for the party) !!! LOL !!!!
