The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Peaches & Screams

by at . Comments

Having returned from the motherland to haterville, The Real Housewives of Atlanta headed to a party this week, but instead of encountering a good time there, our fair ladies found only tears, feuding, and boredom. So it goes.

Come along as we recap it all, THG +/- style!

That NeNe Look

You can't kill 'em if they're already dead.

That's Phaedra's take away from her embalming training. Plus 15 for her overall excitement about diving into the more gruesome aspects of the job but I was relieved that we only had to watch her work on a dummy.

Seeing her learn on a person would have been a little creepy.

But Phaedra's enthusiasm makes the funeral arts look fun. She can't wait to get in there and make the dead look pretty with a hair and makeup makeover. Plus another 5 because I'm actually beginning to think she can pull this off.

Across town, Kim's trying to get the new house in order before Kroy comes home from training camp but it isn't going so well. Her dad keeps trying to throw things away. Minus 7. I hate that but I will agree that Kim's got way too much stuff but that's her decision not his.

Her bigger issue is Sweetie. Sweetie's always been a slacker but it's gotten worse and now she's complaining about being asked to do too much. Minus 20.

I've never had a job where I was allowed to lounge by the pool for the day. Heaven forbid Kim ask her to help move a few boxes in between sun bathing and smoking her cigarettes. 
Kim is Confused

The problem is that Kim and Sweetie have become friends and the lines have become blurred but I'm definitely with the hair stylist. If someone was cursing at my kids they'd be shown the door fast.  Minus 10.

Kim's doing a lot bitching but not much else. I'll be shocked if she really pulls the trigger and fires Sweetie. I simply don't see it happening.

Bryson's finally home from the slammer and he's looking just as clueless as ever. Greg and NeNe form a united front but all Bryson can do is give them a lot of I don't knows and I'll do betters. He's acting like he's 14? Minus 10.

On the upside it sounds like NeNe's kicking him out. He needs to get a job and move out of her house. Plus 12. Good for NeNe. Coddling Bryson certainly isn't working, maybe this will.

Cynthia walks in on Peter planning their anniversary party. He's determined to make this a high end, black tie affair. In one breath he tells Cynthia to trust him and he'll handle it and in the next he's asking for money because he's gone over budget. Minus 15. Some things don't change.

The worst part is that he keeps saying he's doing this for Cynthia who has repeatedly said she'd like something small. The truth is that Peter is all about putting on a show. He wants to come across as the big man to friends and family and it always gets him in a hole. Minus 10.

Worse yet is that Peter and Mal can't stop sniping at one another and it's getting worse. Peter won't let Mal in the limo. Mal tells Cynthia that Peter's a moody, controlling, assh*!e. 

I may mostly agree with Mal but that doesn't change the fact that this is her sister's husband. Mal needs to learn to back off or she might lose Cynthia to this jackass.

Plus 11 for Cynthia as she makes a grand entrance. She looks amazing in the dress but the hair doesn't work for me. All the same, when I see Cynthia looking that good it makes me wonder how she ended up with Peter. Minus 5.

Say Wuuuut

The party has few surprises. First off, Marlo is there with a new guy, Dave. Who the hell is Dave? No one really knows but it sounds like Marlo and Charles are done. 

Sheree continues to try and stir up trouble. She makes a point of telling Lawrence the disparaging things Marlo said about gays while in Africa. At least this time when Sheree threw someone under the bus she got the quote right. Plus 8.

Marlo denies everything and Lawrence looks like he's not sure what to believe but I agree with his theory that people tend to say how they really feel when they lose their temper. 

Kandi walks in looking good. She's trying to put the Africa mess behind her and has decided on a strict no baby policy. When she asks if there are any single men at the party, Marlo sniffs that she'd never date a white man. 

Why is everyone throwing the race issue at Kandi?

By the end, most of the guests look bored. There's no music and not much food leaving people standing around watching the scene between Mal and Cynthia. They're still arguing about Peter and Mal leaves in tears.

Well, it's not a party in Atlanta unless someone does.

EPISODE TOTAL: -18! SEASON TOTAL: -409!

All Kim ever does is complain, watch and see; since Sweetie is gone she will find something to moan about; Kim is just depressed because she stopped drinking and smoking (maybe).She probably has postpartim depression, hope she don't pull a Britney Spears. When she finally wakes up out of this self-induced romantic haze she is going to totally lose it; another baby, a younger man and a athlete at that; When Kroy get's through with Kim she's going to toss those god awful wigs and try and get a job nursing again.

Sharie get a LIFE because she does not have one. She is not happy unless she rats out someone. No wonder she has no man who wants that ho anyway.

About Sherae: I think she is beyond messy. Nobody told her to run and tell anybody anything. She has thrown too many people under the bus and i can't wait for everything to come back and bite her in the behind. About Cynthia: I think her sister should keep her comments about Peter to herself. Cynthia married him and he's her problem not Mal's. Where's her husband?? :/ About Kim: I think getting rid of Sweetie was for the best. Maybe it was to save their friendship like she said but i think it was because of Kroy. Kim and Sweeties relationship has always been crazy. She has always complained but all of a sudden she wants to fire her. On the episode when Kroy was leaving for football camp he said bye to everybody else but Sweetie. She was holding his son when he kissed him goodbye and yet he said NOTHING to Sweetie. KROY IS A RACIST! And getting rid of Sweetie is ALLLLLLLL HIS DOING!!!!!

it is time to get Sheree off hol. She has nothing but mouth. She brings a childish spirit to this story. She is just like middle school students.

Kim is just setting-the-scene by telling everyone except Sweetie that her lack of professionalism is an issue with Kim. Kim wanted to fire Sweetie sheerly because Kroy wants Sweetie gone and if Kroy wasn't in the picture Kim would still want Sweetie around. Kim loved having Sweetie as a side kick before she met Kroy so I don't understand why Kim's bashing Sweetie now. Sweetie's behavior is nothing new. Kim had simular complaints about Sweetie last season on Kandi's bus tour. All of a sudden Kroy's in the picture and Sweeties allegedly "SOOO" unbearable. I can't believe Kim would expect an assistant to double as a nanny anyway. Hire a nanny heifer.

Malorie must let her sister learn on her own plus she is grown and married!! Even though she is married to a old dumb broken down broke fool which has been rumored to be the ex of nia long and did the same to her got businesses that failed! I see what his ass about! Women with money!!!

Kim: She got too close/personal to Sweetie which is the wrong thing to do. If you don't have a back-bone then don't befriend your employees. Keep it professional at all times. Sweetie would never speak ill to me or my kids as long as I was paying her salary. Not working, lounging out at the pool during work time, ignoring my needs/request/wants and half doing your job is not acceptable. Sweetie takes a lot (I'm sure) and isn't making much money. Per Kim she doesn't pay Sweetie much so if she wants to leave she can. Interesting statement! This relationship she and Kim has is no longer Employer to Employee only. It's inappropriate and Kim has created this problem. She needs to fix it but without all the anger. Simply put, Sweetie needs to do her job and hold her tongue! Write her up, put her on probation, who care........just do something besides asking your hair stylist for advice. Seriously, who's the boss!

Marlo: Who the heck is Dave? I don't know but he look really nice. Marlo is interesting to me. 7 mugshots and she is a young Elizabeth Taylor w/o the marriages. Great job Marlo. I'm not knocking her hustle! Not my style........... I work hard everyday on my job. Those who can do and those who can't either won't or don't! That's life!

Phadria: I didn't see her experience w/the embombing process for the funneral home, however I'm not a fan of how she and her mother discuss those who have passed. They both make a mockery of death in some of their comments which isn't cool. I like Phadria but wish she would speak up more when the girls are having discussion. She is starting to annoy me with the "flower on the wall" look she has. Khandi: I think this girl keeps it real. She is misunderstood a lot. It's strange how that happens. I think her success bothers some people and that is sad. She is a single mother doing it and has been for a long time. It's nice to see she holds her own and is well rounded. She can date who she likes (any race). Who cares about that. Seems the people in Atlanta make that an issue.
