I think if I see any more of this Housewives of Atlanta garbage on this sorry rag’s homepage I’m going to shoot myself. That so many people are so wrapped up in this mindless nonsense is truly mind-boggling.

Get a life, people.

It is a shame of the type of “ladies” that represent such a multi-culturally diverse metropolitan city. Not only does the show not reflect the various cultures (Hispanic, European and or Italian) of the city, but the show’s cast don’t portray a dialolgue/script which will inspire young ladies to follow. Case in point if various scenarios would depict a lady having been raised from a single or two parent struggling family, which due to all family members helping that lady overcome many obstacles to finally graduate from Spelman, Emory, etc., then married her prince charming would be more enligtening. In summary what each cast member brings to the show too include the sole male (old guy with the facelift) does not reflect the culturally vibrant city of Atlanta.

I can not stand Ne Ne she is soooo dammm dramatic and keep stuff going… And who told Sheree she was this big time designer??? Dwight is doing everything. All she cares about is getting her hair done before the show begins.. WOW I really do hope this show is staged because I would not want to be friends with any of them.

I am embarrassed these are the women the world sees as representing Atlanta. Bravo needs to get a clue! Why don’t you actually show the “REAL” women of Atlanta…..those that devote their time to their families, and charity. Oh wait…..a real Atlanta housewife probably wouldn’t subject herself to the level of reality tv!

Dang I hate Nene!!!! She was talking about Kandi the whole damn season. She put down her singing, talked smack about AJ, and called her ghetto. What a piece of trash. How can she sit there with a straight face and say she never talks about Kandi. She says that Kim has a personality disorder (which I don’t disagree with) but she is definitely a psycho piece of work! I mean there have been some reality show villains that you love to hate but this bit@& tops the damn cake! Garbage. Nene is garbage.

One only has to watch about ten minutes of this show (can I dare call it that?) to realize that RHOA is real trash. Sad waste of time. I zoned out of it about one episode after it started. If this is the Big ATL, I live in Iowa.

I really enjoyed the season finale. I have to admit it was so sad to watch this episode with AJ in it, but I was so glad that Kandi’s mom finally came around. It’s good to know that she was finally able to accept him and that must have made both he and Kandi happy for a litle while. Sheree’s fashion show was hot! DaWight definitely came thru. Lisa’s face told it all…her show and fashions were so amateur compared to Sheree’s. Also the part where she and Ed talked about the restructuring seemed so fake and staged…but anyway their property is nice even if it’s a downsize for them, it would be an improvement for me. Do the damn thing, ok! Nene….save the drama and listen to your husband. He knows best. Kim…next.

Nene looks realy bad and has looked bad for a while, She starts all the drama and then trys to blame everybody else, pure jealosy…..Ed and Lisa are a real couple, good for them, unfortunatly she will side with Nene, Kim is a Ho with money and looks good doing it, if I looked like that I would do it too….She by Shere looked alright…good for her too. Kandi is the best and has had money for a while, she dosent have to prove a thing, thats what makes her so real…..

Okay. Is it me, or what? But most of the people responding to this blog cannot write a complete sentence. Or at least a correct one. Does that make a statement about RHOA or what? I think so. So sad. RHOA. Real trash.

TV Critic – we are typing while watchin tv…not trying to be grammatically correct or anything. Just getting our thoughts out quickly, sort of like we’re texting. I’m sure people get the gist of what we’re trying to say. We enjoy it or we hate it, whatever. We’re not writing as if we’d write for work. You talk about others but you have fragments, starting a sentence with contractions, etc. All of the RH series are entertaining, trashy, but it’s a lighthearted escape from our real lives that are not as dramatic, catty, or petty. Lighten up.

I would hate to know that I lived in Atlanta and these women were representing me! Kim- nothing but a gold digger and stuck as hell on herself. Ne-Ne- ghetto, ghetto and evil as hell. Whoever told her she was the head bitch in charge, lied to her. She really kills the show. Sheree is stuck on herself too and very fake. Lisa, kind of down to earth and I love how she and Ed get along. Kandi does not belong on this show with these women. She is nothing like them, drama does not look good on her, cause she is not drama

I meant to say that nene was a drama queen and kanid was sweet!!! They all are soooo pretty, and smart and with money. Why don’t they get together and do something that’s going to help this world with their riches, and fame. All this show is known for is drama, fighting, and more foreclosures!! We all know atl is mostly black people they are embarrassing us. Do something with this show like mrs.snow did. Go to a food bank open a charity together, grow up. Yal are all grown women.. Ughhh( any comments my email is diamondtravispaige@yahoo.com)

I like the show its entertainment, thats all. I like to be entertainment after a hard days work. I agree that the show would not be much if NeNe was not on it. I like her a lot but she could tone it down a bit. I think Kim is trashy and completely fake like hair and boobs. Kandi is okay I don’t understand why she thinks Kim is her friend, remember Sheree and Kim last season. I wish that there wasn’t so much back stabbing but if it wasn’t then most of us would not watch. I notice that no one is ever happy for the other. Sheere didn’t support Lisa with her fashion show and still had negative things to say. Lisa supported Sheere but she didn’t have anything good to say either. Lets be happy for each other. I hope my friends do talk about me like that.

Nene, Kim and Sheree are ALL ghetto….Kim is a ho having an affair with a married and living in a dream world. Lisa is fake…Dwight nauseates me with all his gayness….this show is typical reality trash and I won’t be watching it….I’m so sick of the self absorbed people on TV…..

I was really please with the season finale because it accomplished it overall intent–to entertain. Bravo really found “cohesion” in what appeared to be a total chaos. I am an Atlanta Industry Insider who has seen many of these events involving the show. I am wanting to try to set the record straight for many of you who are on the outside looking in.

Characters Nene: She seems to be portray as someone who seems to lash out at others, but she is equally candid as she is kind. It think that it doesn’t take a genius to see when someone is hurting. Her struggle with finding her father really has taken an emotional toll on her and her ability to trust others. Imagine how your life, how distorted your version of reality would be finding out something that you thought was true was not really true at all. Nene had been a stripper and Kim had been as stripper–at the same club!!! “Kim, I have known you for a long time”, where do you think that comes from?

Kim, who unapologetically , is one of many mistresses to a otherwised one penned,Big Poppa. Kim is obviously someone who is seeking approval by people who are simply yes-sayers in her camp because they want to profit from her fall out. Kim also wants to surround herself with people who will not judge her for her adultery. Kim also appears to have a lack of self confidence that only seems to be reinforced by alcohol or people admiring her for being able to spend so lavishly. I pity them in a way, but not as much as I envy them.

Now, imagine the catfights female strippers go through as they are ‘clawing’ their way up to be successful. It makes interesting TV but it may be viewed as misrepresentative of certain subcultures.

Sheree, who is a recent divorcee, has made frequent misteps that have caused her to put up the facade that she is confident and successful, but the facts speak for themselves. She to surrounds herself with yes-sayers that appear to be in her corner, but merely in the corner of her view on TV. She had No true supporters when it came time to make her fashion show.

Kandi, who had actually,cut off the engagement to AJ, hence had already moved on. It is unfortunate that Mr.AJ died. Kandi is a young and seemingly sincere person with a lot of talent. Ironically she has a great call for writing songs, but poor diction and poor delivery of standard English. Kandi becomes the silent hero, who stands up to for the lack of a better term bully aka person who is really hurting aka Nene. Kandi is the break-out star who actually seems to have created a bond with Kim. How long will this really last.

Lisa, as beautiful as she is cunning, is the most resourceful of all the housewives. She has managed to distance herself from most of the drama without compromising her professionalism or dignity. If you compare the footage you are exposed to from both fashion shows, Lisa’s closet freak was barely shown. I have watched that episode countless times only to count 4 outfits including the one Lisa had on during that episode. Note the Season Finale, where Sheree’s entire collection is shown. We are treated to pre-trailers and a full designers walk and bow. This just confirms one thing–its all done for entertainment. It meant that Lisa was dispensible in that she afford the Loss. Sheree could not. The Reality is that both women were given the opportunity to prove determined and resilent they are. The Dynamic between Lisa and Ed are mesmerizing. It seems almost too good to be true…and the reality is that its actually even better. This is a couple that truly support each other on those endeavors that benefit them both. To the contrary, the would not support those decisions that compromises the other.

Dwight,as anyone who knew him before the show, has decided to sensationalize himself. He has been come a caricature of what people have glorified him to be. He is masterful in his concept, but clumsy and annoyingly repetitive in his performance.

All being said, this cast of characters are entertaining and not to be taken so seriously, but the adoring public does not know how to distinguish that even though its reality tv, it is meant to be entertaining.

In regards to any programming that is depicted on television, why would people of color be given a special grid from which to be evaluated.

Television is meant to entertain and inform. Reality-tv is not always meant to be politically correct. Why must any person be representative of any race. Why would the Brittany Spears, Lindsey Lohans, Paris Hiltons, be indicative of their races. They shouldnt be. These are people and despite what they make of their lives, they are still different from regular people. That is why is so easy to judge them–not judging them by their ethnicity.

For people to refer to minstrel shows, coonery, and step-n-fetchit-tisms, are people who are reinforcing stereotypical classification.

Trying to classify this show is not that serious.
Enjoy that these women are on television and directly and indirectly
represent Atlanta.

Rejoice, that these women rear their children instead of abandoning them or aborting them.

Rejoice that these women have found some direction that gives them leverage to motivate others by comparing themselves to them.

Even think that you are better than them, because that means they have accomplished a great deal. They have managed to make you think about them. They have managed to make you have strong feelings for them. They have made you talk about them to your co-workers, your children, your neighbors,–even strangers because you all now have something in common; and that’s beautiful!

I loved the finale. I can hardly wait for the Reunion show! I loved how all the characters culmanated into a well thought out story line.
I must agree with Tracy Sipp who said that the fashion show lacked cohesion. We saw all season and fur and white as in snow. I was appauled by Dwight’s persistance and actually claimed the show when it was really Sheree who had done most of the work. How dare he tell her to go somewhere and look pretty. HOW SEXIST! i AM SURE HE IS THE ONE WHO SAID TO ADD ALL THE LITTLE DEFENSELESS ANIMALS IN THE FASHION SHOW AS WELL!

TO ALL OF YOU WHINING ABOUT THESE LADIES. The reason Bravo doesn’t include normal Atlanta housewives is because these dumb women are exactly the types of trainwrecks that make for good television. Regular housewives are boring. I will take issue with the fact that none of them actually live in Atlanta but hell, these morons are f-ed up enough for the whole metro area.

I would love to see REAL housewives with REAL money. These broke has beens are all whacked except for Kandi. Last nite revealed Lisa’s true infatuation with wealth, Nene’s staged decorated house, pan left there weren’t any glasses in the kitchen cabinet, pan right there are glasses in the kitchen cabinet (LOL!). Nene was driving a Nissan Murano last night, where’s here Range Rover? LOL.
These women are wannabes. Sherri who calls herself sherree’ is such an unfantastic hot mess! I would NEVER purchase anything from her clothing because her name is on the label and she’s such a self-centered ish!
I’m glad Kandi brought the lifestyle of being a single-parent, that’s successful! I love Kandi. Scrap the others and keep Kandi.

Shree, if it wasnt for dwight your entire faashion show would have been a failure. dwight, waas right about everything. he saved your ass. now, lets talk nene. what can i say except she is a poor excuse for a human being and musch less for a friend. she, does nothing to contribute anything positive to the show. she talks about having been in an abusive relationship, but look how abusive she is to others. little kandi, is the only one with class on the show and doesnt need to be around these negative wenches.. by the way, has anybody snapped onto the faact that kim has a very serious drinking problem. god help big popa if he marries her.

who's ur daddy?

NaNa doesnt know who her daddy (sperm donor) is, lol, thats so funny. Not very upper class is it though. More like typical Ghetto problems. Along with Divorce, Foreclosure, Wigs, Breast implants, Lies, Money problems…… I could go on and on. Ta Ta, off to the country club for lunch with the ladies.

First of all, Kim is a trashy alcoholic. i can’t recall one scene where she doesnt have a glass of wine in here hand. Why doesnt she get an IV drip of wine. Nene comes across as pure ghetto that fell into money. Let’s face it, she used to strip. Sheree is completely annoying. If it weren’t for Dwight, she would have been made a complete fool of (again). Lisa, well not much to say about her and her nauseating laugh.

I enjoy HOUSEWIVES of ATLANTA and all of the WONDERFUL ACTRESSES and ACTORS. THAT’S exactly what it is ENTERTAINMENT. I would rather and do watch HWoA over boring soap operas that present stale, patheic storylines with the same old characters that look like drag queens. I love the HOUSEWIVES sagas- ATLANTA, JERSEY, CALI and NEW YORK. By the way what happened to the ladies from KENTUCKY? Can’t wait until the new shows reappear. I was at the W Hotel for my granddaughter’s pajamas party (7 Year old DIVA) when the last show was filmed and I just reveled at the fanfare and glitz. LOVE the HOUSEWIVES of ATLANTA. You go GIRLS !!!

NeNe and Sheree are the worst ghetto trash I have ever seen. How dare her call Kandi ghetto. If you look back through the episodes who do you always see stirring the pot? That’s right NeNe. She is fake and jealous, rude and quite frankly she is the one with a personality disorder… get you some help girl…. Sheree is just as ghetto… all you have to do is watch the episode with the event planner…. I think the comment was…” who gone check me boo” oh please get some class…low life trashy both of them…. loving me some Kim and Kandi. Lisa…who?

i love this show, my favorite is nene i don’t care what they say about her, she’s real and says what she has to say no matter what and who, she does it face to face yeah i agree she’s drama but honestly thats what makes the show real, who i can’t stand is Kim, shes SO fake and i really don’t know whats the big deal, because i think she is ugly her face looks like a man and if she looks good is because she has used whatever tricks she might have to get where she is even though don’t understand because she looks like she don’t have talents, you can look glam and beautiful if you had the money to supply you with all the necessites to look good!! Lisa is okay so far in my eyes, yes at times she seems to go a bit over what she might really be like, but hey have to admit its a reality show there has to be drama and everything else, kandi is nice, maybe its true and she doesn’t belong in this type of show, but she brings a little of what some REAL celebrities go thru in thier lives and that they do go thru similar things just as us normal people and last is sheree, i feel that she is pretty i like how she dresses and kim as well, but again i don’t think she would be nothing if she wasn’t married to whoever was her husband, she has a bigger ego than she should, i hope she doesn’t talk junk about who helped her with the fashion show, that would be so wrong, she did not do nothing but order people around, shes not professional or successful as she claims she gives real single moms that do work very hard each day to be successful and be a role model for their kids, and people be real, remember they get paid,clothes, all types of stuff to do this show, so its not like its thier own, to finish off i love the show, the drama, makes me feel that my life as poor as it may seem to them, its a normal one and noone is perfect with or without money, that does not make them better than me, i do wished at times i did have some of the advantages they have, but its not a necessity and if its to become selfish and nasty as some of these so called Ladies, ill stay just as i am and keep dreaming of the someday i can have more, but by being myself, good women, good mom, hard worker, goal oriented, decent and have lots of self respect

nene is a HOT MESS!!!!!!!!!!! nene started off as the star of this series but when kandi entered the picture nene started lookin’ a mess. Kandi has a kool head and does not allow nene to draw her into her ghetto mess. kim is not as sharp as kandi and she allows nene to draw her in to arguments. nene gets loud and dramatic to win a point. she never wins on facts only on having the biggest mouth. I think that DWIGHT did a FIERCE job on pulling sheree’s HOT MESS together into a real fashion show. stupid sheree didn’t have decency enough to even thank DWIGHT for pulling off that fashion show.l if it wouldn’t have been for DWIGHT sheree would have had another STANK mess on her hands. how is she so dumb that she thinks that she pulled off that show. all she did was walk her mule face around talking bout how this gone be the talk of the town and atlanta’s elite would be talkin’ about she by sheree!!! if it wouldn’t have been for DWIGHT!!!UMPH!!! UMPH UMPH!!
I hope DWIGHT lets ungrateful sheree (the mule) have it with all that he can pull up. sheree needs a good puttin in her place like only DWIGHT can give. Does she really believe that she had anything to do with pulling off that show!!!!!!! DWIGHT better step up and let sheree know what all he did. I mean he took that ball of mess that sheree had goin’ and turned it into a stellar award winning show. GO DWIGHT!!! Dwight needs a show of his own. nene, lisa and sheree need to be kicked off the show and just have a show with DWIGHT KIM and KANDI

Dwight is such a pretty mess. Last season he came out as a surprise guest on the reunion show. Who could forget he sat between SheMan and Kim, wearing long flowing tresses? This season, Dwight should be featured among the other divas sitting with Andy Cohen. Let’s hope BRAVO recognizes it’s unintentional star. I see Dwight getting his own hour long show, doing ambush makeovers on men and women. Good idea huh?

The funniest thing to me here is how all these idiots talk about Kim wearing a wig….. Ugh, don’t they all wear a weave.
And how they argue about the wig, piece, or extensions..
You bunch of idiots, in the end your all wearing fake hair!!
Nene is the nastiest one of them all hands down.
Disgusting to say the least. Sheree is one miserable piece of work.
Kandi is the only one I would actually be able to befriend. The rest are awful. Two faced bunch of back stabbing hypocrites.
Nene could say she’s not ghetto all day long because of where she grew up but TRUST, she is as ghetto as ghetto comes! But then this is show and so I hope it’s just an act cause if these morons really behave like this in real life that’s crazy.
