No wig pulling or in-your-face confrontations this week. But Lisa and Kim keep picking at each other outside of each other’s earshot.
A sampling of the bitch fest:
Kim on Lisa: “For God’s sake — you’re not Wonder Woman!”
Kim on Lisa: “She’s as fake as a three dollar bill!”
Lisa on Kim: “Wasn’t she from a trailer park?”
The trailer for next week shows an attempt at reconciliation next week — because the show demands it, not because it’s necessary.
The bulk of the episode revolves around Lisa’s visit to Los Angeles to visit her 92-year-old grandma, who has the most supple 92-year-old skin I’ve ever seen. (Credit Vasoline and great genetics!)
And to keep the connective thread on the show’s “cast” and not isolate any individual person, Lisa brought along NeNe. The two have gotten closer now that they live closer to each other. Kim is snide about their burgeoning friendship. Ironically, Kim talks about how NeNe flits from friend to friend when in fact, that’s exactly what Kim does, too. Just watch her buddy up to Kandi.
“I can definitely be friends with Kandi,” Kim said. “I just like her energy.”
“I think Kim is pretty cool,” Kandi responded.
Kandi had already written part of a song for Kim called “I Fly Above,” as in “I fly above the haters.” It proves that Kandi nows how to write a hook and sounds pretty good– at least when Kandi sings it. Kim, as usual, avoids actually singing on camera or in front of Kandi. Smart move for our eardrums, Kim!
Then Kim says the comically outrageous line, referencing Dallas Austin: “Dallas described you as just like myself.” Yah… there’s a Grammy coming to you, too, one day.
Back in L.A., Lisa mourns her brother Meho’s early death and visits his grave site. “The pain never really goes away,” she said.
NeNe, of course, provides plenty of comic relief just being NeNe. And she marvels that Lisa has (gasp!) a tiny Asian dad and Asian relatives. “You are so black!” she said. Indeed, Lisa’s black side probably stems from the fact she grew up in a black neighborhood. “Gangsta boo,” is NeNe’s description of Lisa.
The only other plotline really addressed: Sheree plans her upcoming fashion show. — supposedly “sponsored by Mercedes Benz,” she helpfully noted — twice.
