The Real Housewives of Atlanta spent 10 days in South Africa, but did anything really change besides Cynthia's hairdos? We recap the homecoming in THG's +/- review.
First we have to leave South Africa which may take longer than you'd think given the amount of shoes that Marlo has to pack. Oh, but she has help. Some poor resort worker comes in so that Marlo can lounge on her bed and explain how each shoe must be packed in it's own separate little bag so that they don't rub together in flight.
Seriously? Minus 10.
Then "Blue Eyes" as NeNe calls their personal helper must run across to help NeNe close up her suitcases. There are several but at least NeNe packed them herself so Plus 5.
I want to believe Blue Eyes got a decent tip for this nonsense but somehow I doubt it.
When the ladies finally leave, there is singing and dancing. Yes, it's supposed to be some sort of ceremonial custom but honestly, can you imagine how relieved the staff must be to see these high maintenance, bossy women finally leave?
Somehow Phaedra seems to think that all of their positive experiences at the orphanage will have this crew headed back to the States as better women. Ha! Minus 8. I didn't know they made rose colored glasses that strong.
Back home Cynthia brings back presents from South Africa for Noelle but nothing for Peter. Apparently she didn't speak to them much while she was gone. Minus 10. She was away from her husband and daughter for 10 days. You'd think she'd keep in touch.
