The Real Housewives of Atlanta claim they "Got Sexy Back" but I'm not sure that goes for everyone.

We recap who's moving up, who's moving out, and who can't handle the crack in THG's +/- review ...

Kandi & Todd

NeNe's definitely riding a high. She's on the new sitcom The New Normal and considering a move to LA. Plus 25. It's nice to see her happy for once. 

The girl is dining with famous producers and laughing about Tyler Perry changing his number and not telling her while turning down caviar.  Life couldn't get much better for Ms. NeNe.

Or could it?  Gregg's still hanging around and he wants back.  He wants a key to her house. He wants a second chance and he claims he's willing to work for it.

Bravo is yet to announce a premiere date for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5. But fans of this Bravo franchise can expect it to re-launch in October or November.

They can also expect two fresh faces to get in on the annual drama:

  1. Kenya Moore: A 5’10” former Miss USA winner who has appeared in Waiting to Exhale and Deliver Us from Eva, among other films.
  2. Porsha Williams-Stewart: The wife of retired NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart and granddaughter of Civil Rights Leader Hosea Williams.

The aforementioned women will join regulars Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, although sources say Zolciak's role will be greatly reduced due to her pregnancy.*

But the tension between Kim and NeNe will remain, as an insider tells In Touch they "are still not speaking," while Kenya and Porsha "will add some very needed new drama and storylines."

We have no doubt. Producers are likely finalizing their scripts as we type.

*UPDATE: Zolciak has given birth to a son!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta had their final Reunion show last night. No, seriously. This is it. Thank goodness because I think three is really our limit.

There's only so much screeching we can take (see part one and part two) but let's break it all down one last time in our patented THG +/- review!

Poor Andy Cohen can barely keep this crew under control but Plus 10 for doing his best to keep them on track.

Marlo's back. Minus 20. A little Marlo goes a long way and she and Kandi really go at it. 

Bitch Please

I don't know what Marlo's problem is with Kandi. Is it that she's a successful woman who didn't have to lie on her back to make her fortune?  Could be.

But the part that surprises me is that Kandi lets Marlo get under her skin. Minus 10 for getting sucked into the Marlo vortex. Kandi has no reason to defend herself. Marlo's comments about Kandi's boyfriend are simply classless, much like Marlo herself.

And it's kind of scary when all of the screaming makes NeNe look like the quiet one.

Marlo says she makes her money off the haters. Huh? Even Andy calls her on that one. Minus 5. It doesn't seem to make much sense.

Speaking of NeNe, she's right about one thing. When you're dating a married man, you are a mistress. Sorry Kim.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta return for part two of their three-part reunion (see part one recap) and this time, the boys join the party.Who held their head high and who got down in the mud? We break it all down in THG's +/- recap!

Peter hits the stage with wife Cynthia and defends his anniversary party by saying that he wanted to make it about them in a way that their wedding was not.

Really? Minus 8 because it seemed like it was more about putting on a show for everyone else and had very little to do with what his wife wanted.

NeNe Not Happy

If he were interested in making Cynthia happy, he'd try and get along with her sister. Yes, Mal needs to try too ... but Peter could make some sort of effort instead of defending how right he is to hate her. 

I know Peter says we don't see the whole story on TV and that's true but his wife's happiness always appears to come in second to Peter's ego.

NeNe gets all hot and bothered by rumors that she flirts with Peter. Minus 7. She does flirt with Peter. Own it. If it is truly harmless and Cynthia and Peter are okay with it, then what difference does it make.

Got to give Peter a Plus 9 for admitting that Phaedra calling him Papa Smurf was funny as hell. So true and it's nice to see that he can laugh at himself.

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.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Picture

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.

On the season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, one marriage ends, another is about to begin, and Kandi hopes her new business will spread "Happiness & Joy."

In case you missed a moment of the suspense, we break down all of the Rolex watches, Porsches, and bright pink vibrators right here in THG's +/- review ...

NeNe finally signed the divorce papers and she's feeling down. Time for a little shopping therapy with Cynthia. I'll give her a Plus 5 for finally making a decision and moving on.

But not so fast. NeNe's lamenting that divorce means she and Gregg will have to cut off everything, even the sex. Yes, NeNe. For most people that's what divorce means.

NeNe Divorcing

NeNe's looking to live the single life as a player and that means continuing to string sleazy John along. Minus 12. If I never see this man again it will still be too soon.

Unfortunately as long as he's plying NeNe with fancy shoes and Rolex watches, she'll keep taking his calls even if she looks wildly uncomfortable sitting next to him. 

Cynthia's working on The Bailey Agency model search and from the look of that line outside everyone and their ugly sister thinks they can be a model. Minus 10

However I did think it was amusing when Cynthia chastises a girl for wearing shorts that barely cover her butt while Cynthia is sitting there practically falling out of her top.

Last night saw The Real Housewives of Atlanta griping, grousing, and falling asleep in their seats. Let's break down the drama, or lack thereof, in our THG's +/- recap!

Before we get to the event the ladies wished they'd brought their pillows to, let's start from the beginning. Kim and Cyndi meet for lunch to hash out this Africa mess.

Minus 15. I had hoped that last week's confrontation in the parking lot would have put the South Africa debacle to bed forever. No such luck.

Lunch is ... awkward.

ZZZZZZZZ

Cyndi feels that they've never really been friends and don't know one another and since Kim seems to say whatever she wants, why can't Cynthia. Kim thinks that Cynthia is totally under NeNe's thumb.

So how did we get from that to hugging? I'm still not sure. Kim's a little afraid that Cynthia's going to whip out a friendship contract. Plus 5 because I can just picture it and that would have been funny. 

The ladies agree to double date with their husbands but Kim admits she doesn't mean a word of it and I can't believe that Cynthia does either. These two couples would have so much to talk about…NOT!

Meanwhile, NeNe's in LA rubbing elbows with the stars. "I could possibly be a Hollywood actress," she beams. Minus 8. NeNe works as a reality star but what kind of actress would she make? I don't really want to think about it. 

But apparently NeNe's thought a lot about it. She's aiming for an Oscar. Aren't we all? I'll give her a Plus 10 for all of that confidence. Talent? Well, that's another story.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta gave us a homecoming, a coronation, and an almost engagement but it still wasn't enough to put South Africa behind them.

Don't miss the details as we dish it all in THG's +/- recap!

Daddy's home! Or at least that's what Kim and the girls call out as Kroy finally comes back from training camp and Plus 15 because damn, it is sweet.

They really have missed him.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast

Of course don't we all feel sorry for Kim. She had to survive a month on her own. Well, her and her nanny, her cleaning staff, her stylist, the interior designer, her assistant, and, the newest of all, her personal chef. Minus 8.

No wonder she has the time to whine.

Wait, did I say assistant? Not any more. Sweetie is gone! Plus 10 because I never thought Kim would actually step up and fire her. Sweetie's a fool.

Where else will she find a job where she spends half of her time lounging by the pool? But she got lazy and once she started cursing at the kids it was time to go.

We barely saw Kandi or NeNe this hour. They spent a little time with their kids but it's barely worth mentioning. And we saw nothing of Marlo so Plus 12 for that alone.

Sheree and soon to be son-in-law Damon head out to shop for rings. Or maybe not. Well, they do shop for rings but Damon won't give his price range.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta come back this week as we all recover from that fiasco of an anniversary party and move on to a birthday, an engagement, and a divorce.

Things happen fast in Atlanta. To keep up, here's THG official +/- review!

The anniversary party is over. That's the good news. Plus 8. Of course Peter lauds it as a great success. Idiot. Minus 10. That his wife was miserable seems to fly right past him.

Much as Mal badmouths Peter and she did make a scene, Peter basically made fun of her in public when he made his toast at the party. She had a right to be pissed but Peter and Cynthia don't seem to remember any of that. Minus 9.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast

Mal does come over and offer an apology to Cynthia who isn't very gracious. She doesn't seem to recognize that her husband is as much of a hater as Mal.

Maybe it's good that Mal's headed to Paris.  Hopefully Cynthia will see her husband for what he is without the distractions. Plus 7.

Kim and Kandi get together as Kim laments how stressful the move has been. Yes, moving is stressful but most of us don't have an entire entourage to help us get it done. Minus 8 and stop the whining already.

Without the silly yelling these two manage to put this orphanage nonsense behind them and it's about time. If I never have to see that clip again it will still be too soon. Plus 5.

Of course that doesn't stop Kandi from basically saying the entire incident was Cynthia's fault. Oye. Some things never change.

NeNe's lawyers call her in to tell her that all the paperwork for her divorce is ready. All she has to do is sign. It's time to make a decision.

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.
