The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Recap: Growth is Hard to Find

by at . Comments

Growth is a beautiful thing. Of course it can also be hard to find.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion, Part 1, offered up a lot of talk about growth but what we saw was merely a an hour's worth of screeching, eye rolling, and one upmanship Atlanta style so we'll break it down in THG's +/- review ...

Andy starts off asking why the ladies love to talk about there designer labels.

It's true, these women are always going on and on about who they're wearing and what they're buying. They may think it makes them appear wealthy, but they only look like a bunch of insecure wannabes. Minus 12.

Somehow all roads led back to NeNe tonight. If she wasn't defending herself or yelling at someone she was rolling her eyes while the others were talking.

And she was wearing the most ridiculous looking heels of the group. Minus 5. How the heck does she walk in those things.

First we'll start off with Kandi whose sex toy line, Bedroom Kandi is making her a mint of money. Plus 8. You go girl! Phaedra says she's helping make sure the products work well but NeNe simply looks uncomfortable. Kandi calls her out on it. Didn't NeNe used to be a stripper. Maybe so but sex toys are not her thing. 

NeNe says she's grown and she ain't got time for these ladies. Well, she isn't threatening to kill anyone this season so I suppose we can count that as growth. Plus 9.

So once we break away from Kandi's cleavage (seriously, she must be glued into that dress), we move over to Kim… and more cleavage.

Kim is so blissfully happy it is almost sickening. Andy asks about her spending habits but she swears that although she likes to spend, they aren't stupid about it. Let's hope so for the kids' sake. She also says that she and Sweetie are still friends and that she came to Brielle's birthday party. Plus 5 because I was so worried about that.

Then Kim breaks the big news. She's pregnant again. Damn, she and Kroy sure work fast but Plus 10 for the happy news.

Happy Kim Zolciak

Well, not everyone seems so happy. NeNe looks downright ticked off and Cynthia's not much better. Minus 8

Is it a boy or girl?  Rose her friendly psychic advisor says it's a girl but Kim's not telling. We'll all have to wait and see.

Andy then tries to steer the conversation to Big Poppa but Kim says she won't talk about him in respect of her new husband. Plus 7. Good call.

Finally we wander over to Sheree who cries about Bob still not paying child support. Yup, the guy's a jerk. Nothing has changed there except that Sheree's still blaming Phaedra for the way she handled the case. Minus 10. It's been months. Phaedra returned her retainer and recommended another attorney. What more does she want?

Chateau Sheree is still a hole in the ground but she says she's got a new contractor and things are back on track. Then NeNe calls her project Neverland, as in it's never going to happen and suddenly things turn ugly.

Sheree tells NeNe she has donkey teeth and NeNe says hers could use a whitening. Classy, ladies. Minus 5

The two are actually screeching so much it's hard to make out what they're saying but it's all about how much money they claim to have and when NeNe says she doesn't shop at Walmart, Sheree is quick to shoot back that her son still steals from there.

Minus 15 because bringing the kids into this isn't cool and NeNe calls her on it. Then Kim jumps back in reminding NeNe that she didn't have a problem tweeting about her kids having different baby daddies. NeNe claims it's not the same thing. You can decide who's right on that one.

The screeching doesn't end until the show does but don't worry, it isn't over yet. We'll have part two next week and you just know there'll be rehashing the Africa nonsense. It's the storyline that just won't end.



Proves you don't have to be poor and live in a trailor to be trashy[


I say get rid of Sheree and KIm. Ne ne will go on her own. Phaedra, khandi and cynthia are the money makers; Khandi being the front runner. If they had to get rid of just one person, I'd say GET RID OF SHEREE!!
She's not a housewife and dont have anything going for her. Kim's getting her own show so she'll be elsewhere and if Kroy doesnt staywith his team, they'll all be gone


They don't have spell check! corredction, the word I want to use is flamboyant not famboyant. Flamboyant defined as marked by or given to strikingly elaborate or colorful display or behavior .


Now that's entertainment! The REAL housewives of Atlanta are true to who they are....each lady unique with a famboyant style. "Keep on Pushin", it takes courage, determination and perservance to continue such varying endeavors, and THEY ALL have it.

Wv peach

Oy vey!!! Here we go again....


I agee with you, Nene and Cynthia need to stay on the show and get rid of the other ones. Kim is a joke, she is the saint of all time now that she has married a racist. I sickens me to see how all the housewive flock to her like she has gold hanging from her. It almost like I do not want to white women to fall out with me and Sheree kissing her ass, do she see what she did to Nene, she will do the same thing fro her. Get Real Ladies.


Kandi is not in the same place as she was ten years ago... She is doing big things. Nee-Nee better enjoy and take advantage of these 15 minutes of fame, because she has NO TALENT!! Cynthia is a butt kisser Nee-Nee's & Peter's puppy dog! She has NO BACK BONE! I say keep Kandi and Phadrea then add some new women about their business to the show. GET RID OF THE REST OF THEM!


Kim is to be admired for recognizing the importance of her marital relationship and Not feeding into her questions about her *past relationship. Congrats to Kandi and the success of her business ventures. Phaedra continues to be my fave,she has a quiet reserve and is a class act. I am inclined to believe the honesty of NeNe when she refer to Sheree's (hole in the ground) as Neverland. No words for Cynthia since she ran across the hall in South Africa and started the screaming match between Sheree and Marlo.
I watch this show in very small doses, and appreciate the recap that is presented to your readers. Again, Thank You!!


I stopped watching the show. I see nothing on it anymore. Kandi is doing great with her sex toys but it does not mean that everyone has to enjoy it. Fire all of them except Nene and Cynthia.. They need new blood and be in the company of others. NOw Kim is a saint.. OMG, I am tried of those black women shows putting each other down, attacking each other. Basket ball wives and the others. Sheree is a joke. There is no substance. Sherre, Phaedra need the book. NOw, KIm has a spin off show.. Oh Lord. At least Nene is marketable. Nene was a stripper but not a prositute and she did not hide. She had issues and she delt with them and now she moved on. The other women still where they were 10 years ago..
