Which ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ should stay or go?

Who would you most like to see leave "Real Housewives of Atlanta" for season three?

Loading ... Loading ...

This Thursday and next Thursday, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will rehash the hair pulling, petty arguments and misunderstandings over two hours of reunion shows. Last year’s was quite a blockbuster when Lisa Wu Hartwell threatened physical violence on Kim Zolciak and Kim and NeNe Leakes exchanged nasty comments about their sexual predilections. We’re expecting more shenanigans this time around. Heck, we’ll be disappointed if there wasn’t a fair share of insults and name hurling.

Now the big question. Who should stay and who should go for season three? I expect the producers will want to sub out at least one lady just to change the dynamics again. I mean, there are only so many ways Kim and NeNe can go at it, eh?

Here are my odds on who will stay and who won’t:

NeNe Leakes: she is the Queen Bee of this group, the one who has best taken advantage of her fame so far from the show. She was probably the most popular housewife last season but her likability has taken a hit this season thanks to her pointless arguments with Kandi Burruss and that choking incident with Kim. There has been rumors of her doing a spinoff but I expect she will stay, though she may demand so much more money, Bravo might turn red. Odds of her leaving: 8-1

Kim Zolciak: She remains a quixotic figure, the only one who spends with abandon and has a strange on-and-off-again relationship with Big Poppa. She is suitably outrageous and while not likable, certainly fascinating to watch along the lines of a seven-car pileup on I-75. Her options, given how people perceive her, are not as broad or deep as NeNe’s. I expect she’ll re-sign though given how broken her relationship with NeNe is, this could cause complications. Then again, as long as the two are willing to converse, Bravo is gambling on MORE drama. Odds of her leaving: 7-1

Kandi Burruss: As the newest member of the crew, she’s a vast improvement over DeShawn Snow in terms of entertainment. She is a successful artist/songwriter and has built a healthy fan base with her level-headedness and smarts. Her bugaboo was dealing with A.J. and her mom, which was a great storyline that is unfortunately over. She is someone I’m sure Bravo would like back given her credibility and the sympathy factor. It’s ultimately up to Kandi if she thinks the spotlight is worth it and will continue to help her jumpstart her singing career. Odds of her leaving: 5-1

Lisa Wu Hartwell. She showed a bit more moxie this season, throwing in several funny bon mots, even though she was seldom in the middle of any of the key drama. Her snarky notes about Sheree were especially amusing. Though she has plenty of side businesses, she seems happily ensconced in RHOA land as long as Bravo wants her. Odds of her leaving: 3-1.

Sheree Whitfield. She came across a bit more relatable this time around vs. season one but as Lisa said, she can be a bit cold and calculating. She was the center of some of the major drama and she needs the show to help generate income and publicity for her She By Sheree line, income she needs post divorce. But I’m sure she’d be happy to hit the exits if she could find the right opportunity – or if Bravo finds fresh blood. Odds of her leaving: 2-1

Ratings for the final episode last Thursday, by the way, were about 3 million viewers. That’s only slightly above the average but solid nontheless.

In other RHOA news, the attorney repping the man accused of killing Ashley “A.J.” Jewell said he may have the charges dropped after news that Jewell may have suffered from sickle cell anemia.

I vote Khandi to be off the show – She’s far better than this.

I vote for Kandi to get her own show shadowing her album release, subsequent tour and juggling family life.

The rest need to stay on for the drama. Bring on another female train wreck to replace Kandi after she gets her own “better” show.

Sheree will leave when she gets her future billionaire, Tyler Perry. You know, she ain’t messing with no broke a–. Gold digger!

How about replacing NeNe with another housewife from Sugarloaf? There is one that is a gold-digger, albeit retired, since she married her wealthy man. She was a significant part of a scandalous murder and subsequent trial in which another gold-digger bludgeoned their mutual, millionaire lover. Sounds like interesting drama…plus, she probably misses the limelight. Bravo?

Get rid of all of them and put women in there place that really represent Atlanta. It’s embarrassing that our city is looked at the way it is already, much less with these women in a national show. All we need is the show to begin with gang signs.

Lord where do I start with this trainwreck of a woman? Besides the fact that she’s broke, her husband has no real means of making bank, the son is lazy and the youngest isn’t old enough to get a job they’re an ill fit for this show. She apparently used her own discretion (Gawd that’s dangerous) to dispurse the funds from Twisted Hearts and speaking of the charity, she is a poor representative for a domestic violence charity. The anger management issues are compiling, the evictions have surfaced and the civil suits make these folks look like they can’t afford a single wide trailer. Get this woman off the show before she harms an innocent person. I think the Bravo viewers are sick of her arrogance. She’s worse than Paris Hilton, at least she’s famous for coming from the HIlton fortune, NeNe is famous for being a broke stripper, awful parent and a waste of space. Get rid of her and find a housewife who already has a successful career.

i saw about 20 minutes of a the show for the first time last week & laughed because it was so lame. but nearly all reality shows are lame. If they(bravo) are going to film women from Atlanta(area) then put some real Hot georgia peaches on, not fake transplants from other states.

We don’t want any of them to stay, they are all a disgrace. I have written Bravo’s website a few times not to renew this garbage for another season and it sounds like they are going to. It looks like I am going to have to take matters into my own hands.

They are all losers.
Kim – stripper known as “Barbie” , proud adulter, unfit mother, bad singer, baby daddy-less, runs a burlesque home where she is the star, 31 years old? Looks 41 with those stripper scars, trashy.
Sheree – Has a record as long as my arm mostly for theft, unfit mother, baby at 15, bad designer, mocked weekly by the women in Sandy Springs where she lives or did live, poor, trashy.
NeNe – stripper known as “Ghetto Trash” , unfit mother, bad author, poor, mocked by the women of Atlanta with real money, renter, bad manners, blackmailed Gregg to marry him, felon, trashy.
Lisa – unfit mother, in denial as she says she is an actress, designs clothes for the working girls downtown, Foreclosure Queen, on her way to the poor house, probably a stripper?, trashy.
Kandi – bad taste in men, Kim’s producer- hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, bad taste in men, baby-mama drama, bad taste in men, a Kohl’s Princess, bad taste in men, bad taste in men, trashy.

They got rid of Dashawn because she didn’t have enough drama! Now I would love for Ne Ne to be served papers to walk, cause she is just a hater. Anyone that’s friends with Kim is a bitch in her book. first Sharee now Candi. What’s the problem boo are you mad cause Candi has her own money and could pay her own rent before the show was even thought of. Get a real job Ne Ne.and stop hating.

Hey guys, they are renewing the show…love it, love it! So refreshing compared to the Betty Buckheads and the Debby Dunwoodys I have to encounter on a daily basis…boring. P.s. if you don’t like it, don’t watch it, why are you reading this article and blogging about it….hmmmm?

Sheree is clueless. Get rid of her and make Dwight the next housewife. He has some sense and brings the drama. I would love to see more of him and less of horse face Sheree.

LOL! The Real Housewives of ATL is a joke with no real storyline. These women don’t have much of any thing going on in their lives with the exception of Kandi. I reaaly don’t have a clue as to why she’s even on this horrible show because she is so very independent and unfortunately single now. She’s too good for this show just like Deshawn. I will give the rest of the women credit for being extremely entertaining (actresses)!

I don’t feel that any of these “so called housewives” fit any other role other than trash. The producers should be ashamed using the name ATLANTA as any part of the programs title. It Should be “Trash Housewives from the GHETTO”. I don’t want my daughter growing up to be anywhere near what they portray being Black or White, To bad it is all an act for the money. Turn to God Girls, he’ll provide you the direction and guidance you need to set your family in the right direction.

Atlanta should take a break for a while. These ladies need to take a hiatus to allow for intense therapy, financial, and housing counseling.

I though a ‘HOUSEWIFE’ was a woman who stayed home and took care of the ‘house’ while hubby is out making the $$$. The show should have been Has Been Housewives of Atlanta. What does NeNe’s father/husband (he looks old enough to be her daddy) do? They seem to be the most useless on the show. The only thing she does is fuss n cuss and I just cant figure out what he does other than suck up her money.

Who cares. These aren’t real “housewives” of Atlanta. Why don’t they head to an AHA neighborhood and show us some of the “real” people of atlanta….like the single mom working 2 jobs to support her kids?

I give’em all ups. Anyone else with the oppotunity to make money would jump at this idea.
Ne-Ne, do your thing baby…I ain’t mad at cha.

I love Kandi because she is real, and if Bravo would let her show her real ATL side, Ne-Ne would be in trouble.

Kim…blah,blah,blah, the age thing is confusing…to her lol. Malibu Barbie, Barbie’s dream house…fake a@$ barbie, sad. She can go because all she does is shop, and neglects the girls, and she has no oomph to get Ne-Ne straightened out.

Sheree…boring and fake. What’s that eye thing she does when taking pictures? She looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

Lisa…fake acting, but cute. Why did her sister and mom put on those wigs?

I expect Kandi is the most likely to leave. She’s the only one who doesn’t have to be on the show; from an income perspective. Obviously she’s on the show to market her comeback album. My guess is the freak show is probably more than she bargained for.

I have had the pleasure and displeasure of meeting Kandi and NeNe on different occassions and I can honestly say I want NeNe Leakhead GONE!!! Even though I know this is Bravo’s cash MOOSE for this show, it is highly unlikely that it will happen. I can say Kandi is a delight and the real person you see on the show is the real person she is, she can be very sweet BUT when you get in her face and challenge her as a woman, WATCH OUT!! I can also say I have met NeNe as of last year actually, at the Hosea Feed the Homeless Thanksgiving Dinner as a volunteer, this person is SOOOOOOOO FAKE. I was highly disappointed to find out this out because she was actually my favorite at first, but the way she treated those homeless people like they were beneath her and she didn’t want anyone to touch her, take a picture with her, and she didn’t want to even help serve the food because she had just got her nails done. I was through with her on THAT DAY. I would like Sheree to leave, she seems the most sneaky, and the issssh stirer of the show.

Excuse me for asking this question, but the TITLE of the show is REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA right? Then WHY on earth do they ONLY have 2 of the cast members that are actually married? They need to get rid of everyone who isn’t married…Khandi – is single, Kim is single and a hott mess who is dating a darn MARRIED man….what’s up with Sheree…she isn’t married anymore so why is she on the show? They ALL need to be replaced with Women that are ACTUALLY MARRIED! Either that or you all should change to title to “Real ‘wannabe’ housewives of Atlanta minus 2″…

Kandi should leave – she is so much better than this show.

You kidding? All of ‘em. Kim, NeNe & Sheree are so selfish, shallow, trashy and overall, just horrible people. The whole country is laughing at the city of Atlanta…no thanks to the Real trashwives of Atlanta.

Why is it no one is discussing the fact that Big Poppa and Kim are SO disrespectful. She is running around with a ring claiming to be engaged while he has a real family at home. He is disrespecting his wife and children by flaunting his mistress all over television. You know his wife and her immediate family know who he is and have his affair thrown in her face every Thursday.

Kim is nothing less than a paid mistress. She has no skills and relies on others for everything. Big Poppa supports her and her children. Derek J created the wig lines as she sat sucking down cigarette smoke. Kandi made that trainwreck of a song sound decent. All while she contributed nothing.

She is not an example for her children as she runs around spending money with no thought of investing and laying up with a man who comes when he has time away from his real family.

I truly find their whole relationship disgusting.


October 27th, 2009
8:34 am

The show will have to continue in the same light, it will need all of the women who currently or in place with the show, now if Kandi decides to bail, maybe Tameka Raymond can take her place, she would definitely make a good replacement but she may not need the money or maybe she does, or maybe we could get Kim Porter does she still live here? Any how I think the ladies should stay. I realize this is television and not to take this to heart even though this was very serious to me when I first started to watch the show it drew me in. I think NENE has made some enemies so she either needs to come with it or change and that will make good television, Sheree will be very interesting because I think her and Dwight will have a few words before it’s over with and her beautician/ whatever he is, in fact why not have a spin off with Dwight, Derek J, amd Marcus if that’s his name. Now that would be some television shop talk and how they interact with the RHOA. Well peeps I have a lot of ideas Bravo needs to call me but until then. “Smooches”


October 27th, 2009

Lawd. Can we get some real women WHO ARE MARRIED on the show?? Kim is a contract “wife” for Big Poppa. Sheree is a former “wife” WHO IS AND HAS BEEN DIVORCED from a former NFL player. She is just a divorcee’ PRETENDING… Lawd…

Nene, although crazy, is likeable. At least she’s married. Lisa is also cool folk, and also is married. Kandi is probably wondering what the hell is this, but its a great way to market my music and get some pub.

But, really, can we get some real folk on the show?? Kim and Sheree bring new meaning to the words, GHE–(wait for it)–TTOO!!


October 27th, 2009
8:40 am

Can NeNe! She is not the funny woman who we saw in season 1. Now she wants to act all proper and dignified- b*tch, please! Not working! Hit the snooze button! GO back to your old self and stop acting so envious of Kim’s song! It is eating you alive!


October 27th, 2009

I saw Ne Ne and Kim on Jimmy Kimmel Live and they seemed civil to me. This is all for show, boot them all off the air.

I’ve only done “drive byes” on this show.
Nene is a joke, should be gone.
Khandi is too good for this show.
The Atlanta housewives that I know DONT act like these women.


October 27th, 2009
9:01 am

There are only 2 Real Housewives on the show..NeNe is my favorite..Kandi should countinue her singing career..Kim should get help with her smoking..Sheree needs to stop acting fake..Lisa seems ok and should write a book..They need to bring Deshawn back :)


October 27th, 2009
9:02 am

If they’re going to do away with the show they should do just that and not just take any particular person off..


October 27th, 2009

Please send NeNe packing… And she had the nerve to call Kandi “GHETTO”. NeNE look in the mirror. There you will see GHETTO!!!!

I voted Kandi because I don’t really see where she fits into the show. My second choice was Sheree because she is an unrealistic, bitter housewife. Does she not realize how many people want to have clothing lines? If you can’t run a boutique, how can you manage a clothing line? I would rather have REAL wives who represent Atlanta. Not mistresses or broke ex-wives. There are so many women in Atlanta who fit the bill of the show and can provide the entertainment needed to be on television. . .OH WELL!

How about….NONE OF THEM….they (except kim) are crazy ghetto and make black people look like Baffoons. Kim just makes herself look like a money hungry hoe looking for a man to sink her claws into….

This show is trash is does not represent Real Housewives anywhere, anytime or of any color. These are Real Women (not all are wives) who have money but no class.

Its a shame that they represent Atlanta…

Dwight is the obvious choice as a replacement housewife! He’s a character!!
