Real Housewives of Atlanta recap, season two, episode one

They’re baaaack. And given how much press “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” have gotten over the past eight months since the first season ended, it’s as if they’ve never left.

The highlight of this first episode is not drama between the five housewives. No, it’s between Sheree Whitfield and her party promoter Anthony.

At first, things are hunky dory as he pitches her a concept for her post-divorce “independence party.” He wants it to be themed around Hollywood and Cleopatra. Somehow he makes this sound like it’s original.

Sheree tells him she wants something “grand, grand grand” for her independence party. “The party is all about me,” she said. But of course. Question: Who’s paying for this? Who knows?

But later, Anthony gets annoyed when Sheree starts asking her questions. They meet face to face and it gets ugly fast. She feels out of the loop. He becomes defensive. Then they start yelling.

She also portrayed her ex husband Bob as evil for not paying child support for 19 months and stopping mortgage payments without telling her. Her home was in foreclosure, forcing her to move in a new place. Bob has stayed studiously quiet about all this so we get only her side of the story.

NeNe Leakes is in a forgiving mood. She first reconciles with Sheree. The pair had a falling out last year over a missing party invite.

NeNe also wants to bury the hatchet with Kim Zolciak at a birthday party for “Reno 911″ Niecy Nash. (”Who’s birthday?” Sheree asked.) But Kim avoids NeNe though Kim claims she was really avoiding Lisa Wu Hartwell, who was with NeNe. It’s just like high school!

Kim sees her psychic again. She has been spending money on this gal for seven years. She says she broke up, saying it’s been “rough.” “There was some betrayal. He was talking to people he shouldn’t be talking to behind his back,” she said. Yes, typical drama when it comes to Kim. She denies that she lied about Lisa. She’s still hurt about NeNe and her mocking Kim’s singing abilities. “I do care about her? Am I ready to have a glass of wine with NeNe? I don’t know.”

She is starting her own wig line and goes to a school to learn about wigs. But she has no attention span and gets bored. She said she needed money now that she was no longer with “Big Poppa.” I suspect it’s much easier for her to find another Sugar Daddy than actually work, though.

Kim’s gossip mongering is peeving NeNe, Lisa and Sheree. And all three believe she won’t apologize.

In other “Housewives” news, Ed is ready to have Child No. 2 and Lisa is a bit apprehensive. “I’m 38 and the clock is ticking,” she said.

Fifteen minutes in, newbie Kandi Burruss pops up for the first time as a friend of Lisa’s. She introduces herself as a financially secure singer-songwriter, a single mom and ready to marry a dude with six kids. There is no sign of what may come later in terms of her falling out with NeNe.

Anthony has destroyed his business with one scene. I don’t care how upset you are. You do not call any woman the names he called Sheree.

Should be an interesting season....

Why do we need another season of this crap. Why not a show to show clueless mothers/parents how to raise productive, law abiding off springs?

Sheree had, oh my, No one has the right to disrespect anyone who is paying them for their business like that!! He is a pig, Anthony, you just lost a lot of customers.

I did not watch last year I wanted to give them a chance to see if they would portray a positive image for mothers. I was wrong. I will not watch anymore.

-Sheree is stupid. If she doesn’t work then her job is to protect her children. She needs to call her lawyer or the court when Bob “missed” his first payment. Liar go to school and get a career to help contribute to your children’s upbringing. She acts like a real lady cursing and threatening people. Trash.

-Greg and Nene are fake they were renting last year

-Does Kim have to resort to hooking to make money. What is she teaching her two daughters.

-Lisa is so fake. “If it doesn’t make money, I don’t do it” Ed, you are on the clock buddy.

-You know a dude with 6 kids didn’t buy Kandi’s ring. If so his babies mamma’s should be asking about how their kids are taken care of. He must make babies for a living!

Between this and the BET awards, I am ashamed of how black people are portrayed on TV. No wonder there are no black tv shows on a major network, BET, Flavor of Love and the House tramps are buffoonish enough for executives to keep laughing at us.

We are so much better than this as a people, I just wish we had more positive images on TV.

Anthony was way out of line with the way he reacted. Being a service professional, when clients have questions it is up to you to answer those questions and address any concerns that they may have. He has ruined his name for a 2 minute fiasco on network television. What would have been a great way for him to earn business, has turned out for the worse for him. Just comes to show, not every entrepreneur knows how to handle customers.

Wow I love how everyone talks negative about these women. They have the real housewives of new York and orange county. Those are all white women. So why knock the sistas? I actually love this show. I can’t knock there hustle. As far as I’m concerned everyone has haters. So ya’ll continue to hate. They are still gonna make there money. I actually wonder how many of you would do a show like this if you asked to.

Party planner…. You may act like a female but remember you are not one and will never be. You should not only ALWAYS respect a woman but a client. Kiss your career good bye because no decent person in ATL would ever use your services. This was suppose to be an exciting event and you rained all on her parade. LOSER

Ghetto Executive, absolutely. Caling a womana bitch.. WTH????? I was appalled at his behavior, IN AN OFFICE? Wow. pookie, you won’t get a chance to plan a gathering for sausage lovers at the meat counter @ Publix! Comedy. No Child support, we going back to court; with a sincere quickness!

I am a disgusted sista who is tired of black women degrading themselves on TV. Where is Sheree getting this money from to have this party? she doesn’t work. It seems as though she is PRETENDING to be all that. Why can’t they portray some positve sisters that are intelligent and respectful of themselves and others. How many times was the B word NOT bleeped out. This is another example of white America making a fool out of black folks. Wake up ladies. I would like to watch this show with my teen daughter, but it does not set an example for the LADY that I am raising. Take this TRASH off TV!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe a grown man would threaten a women on TV. I would like to know who the hell that planner is so his company can be boycotted!!! If you are paying someone for a service then you work for them. If I call one million times you better answer my questions. Try that ignorant behavior with Puffy, Jay-Z etc. He would be in some serious trouble.

First of all ,all of these housewives shows SUCK. I believe the person on the Atlanta show that showed class was Mrs.Snow. You see she was the only one that had sense enough to not return.If the network really wanted to make money they should have given Nene a spinoff show and scraped everything else. Sheree where do I start? If you are so concerned about not recieving child support,then why waste money throwing a party? I won’t even start in on Kim because she is just your typical white trash that use what she got to get what she wants.Kandi should have stayed in hiding because I don’t buy that bulls$%t with that ring. Lisa wants so desparately for her husband to play ball again but truth be told I think Boyz To Men said it best. I THINK HE’s COME TO THE END OF THE ROAD. Enough ranting for one night. I need to save energy to rag Tiny and Toya. PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She did not pay for that party, he gave his services to her for free. She had no right to be rude and ungrateful to him and his staff. They both need anger management. And she needs a job.

Love NeNe as always. I would be willing to bet that Bravo edited out some of what really happened with Sheree and Anthony because he would not have gotten that upset with her asking just those questions. Wait a few days–the truth will come out. Wait and see.
Who would be willing to buy a wig from Kim when hers looks a mess.
Not really feeling Kandi on this show–not a good fit at all. Like her music–just don’t think she’s a good fit with them.

HERE IS A BOMBSHELL THAT WILL BLOW THIS SHOW OUT OF THE WATER:

the scenes where NeNe is shown at her new “home” with her husband and kids is actually a house that Bravo rented just for the family scenes of her with her family. They don’t actually live there. They live in a relatives home. I heard this from a friend at Bravo. The whole thing with Nene is fake. She is really the totally broke housewife of Atlanta. When this becomes public news, which it will, the show will look so fake.

I agree. Not feeling Kandi at all!!!

Sheree is Broke

July 31st, 2009
12:39 am

She was not paying for the party! She couldn’t afford it! She stood him up and then had demands like he was her servant. He probably just wanted the publicity. He was wrong for calling her out of her name first but if she’s getting a 60 grand service for free, she should show some class. If she had 60-thousand dollars she could’ve had someone help her move in to her new place.

Just wondering...

Lisa and Nene are married. How are are you a house wife if you have no husband Kandi, Kim, and Sheree?

You guy’s don’t get it. Sheree couldn’t pay her bills. She has top dollar champage taste on kool-aide budget. He was pissed, because she couldn’t afford his services. You cannot customize a CLR, when you can only afford saturn.

Anthony has to be the biggest idiot in the party planning business. He carried on like an unprofessional baboon. For Anthony to react the way he did shows he is clearly unstable. Sheree cursed him off classy & poised. He was uncouth like a wild wilderbeast. The irony is that he called himself a “top executive”. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! I cannot believe someone like him has an occupation that interacts with the public. I hope that everyone who watched the show lets everyone know that they should not solicit his business. He clearly is a woman beater. He was totally jealous of Sheree.

S.Lewis – That is so funny that someone would say that “He clearly is a woman beater”. I got the impression also, it seemed at one point he actually drew back his shoulder in jesture and then caught himself. I have never seen anything like that in my life. I cannot imagine ANYONE ever doing business with him, what if he was actually at an event and someone as he put it “disrespected him”. As Dwight loves to put it “JUST DREADFUL”

Anthony treated her poorly, but at the same time, I can’t believe she was acting like she was paying for her lame party and demanding a helicopter! He was doing it for free in return for some publicity, which ultimately backfired, but she had some nerve!
On the aftershow with Andy Cohen, her clothes (from her horrible clothing line) looked awful, and she has absolutely no personality. And I don’t believe for one second that she did not know her mortgage wasn’t being paid. Admit it, you’re completely broke.

I dont think the fight between Sheree and Anthony was fake but I think Bravo pushed Sheree into having the party so they would have something to film.

Lets face it: these are the Really Broke Housewives of Atlanta.

NeNe’s husband owes $100,000 in back taxes, has no business, has multiple lawsuits, and she was thrown out of her RENTED home for not paying rent. Now Bravo is renting a fake house she doesnt even live in.

Sheree’s home got foreclosed….and the football player married to the other one is out of the NFL for good cause he got too fat.

They really are the REALLY BROKE housewives of Atlanta.

I have been anxiously awaiting the first episode of season 2. I also live in the metro atlanta area. I love NeNe because “what you see is what you get”! Dwight should have his own show, I must say he is extremely entertaining and ,oh my, I did love that lap dance he gave NeNe!!! I hope he remains a large part of the show. I most identify with Sheree. She is a beautiful black woman, well spoken, educated, and carries herself with such CLASS and dignity. Although she was a bit annoyed with Anthony!!! What a classless loser!! I had a feeling in their first meeting that he didn’t really know what he was doing. I can assure you his business (if it is legit) will suffer greatly, as it should. I was talking to the tv, “you go girl don’t let that idiot speak to you that way”. I really wanted to see her whip his a__ or at the very least, call 911. I’m not sure about Kim. I think she tries too hard to be black! I hope we will find out who big papa is, I’ve heard it’s Quincy Jones. Can’t wait to see the next episode.

Kandi, listen to your mother & your daughter. You should not marry a guy with 6 kids. Are the 6 kids by the same woman? If not your relationship will not last because it will be too much drama. If you choose to marry him, GOD FORBID, you will probably end up paying his child support payments. Your daughter is a very intelligent little girl. She is probably used to being spoiled, in a good way. She knows she will get lost in the crowd with 6 instant siblings.
