‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ recap: It’s the NeNe Leakes Show!

NeNe's Twitter photo

NeNe's Twitter photo

“If you act the fool in public, you’ll act the fool anywhere.” – Phaedra Parks.

For the second episode in a row, it was NeNe Leakes’ show and everyone else is just a bit player.

In terms of emotional resonance, NeNe first reprimands her son Bryce for being a lazy, unemployed bum. This is NeNe at her best. She gets tearful and angry, especially after he complains that she’s too strict. She then boots him out of the house until he gets his head on straight. She’s especially appalled he got arrested for pot possession while visiting a friend in jail. That is an impressively monumentally dopey move.

Later, she confronts Dwight Eubanks again but this time in private. He apologizes and denies loaning her husband Gregg $10,000. She gets tearful. “You really hurt my feelings,” she said. He wouldn’t explain the favor he did for Greeg, saying it was between him and Gregg (”it was man to man”).  They hug it out but she later said she felt a betrayal by both of them. “I’m all about loyalty and trust,” she said. “I can forgive – but I can’t forget.”

Initial impressions of new cast member Cynthia Bailey

Otherwise, the biggest development was the introduction of model Cynthia Bailey to the cast. The show producers have her hanging out with NeNe at the Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park as if they were long-lost friends when in fact, they never knew each other before the show.

Cynthia talks to NeNe about Dwight and her husband, lending a magic sympathetic ear. Later, Cynthia “invites” Kandi Burruss to perform at her downtown lounge/club Uptown. Surely, this was a contrived way for the producers to get Cynthia in the picture. She meets Kandi and they gab a bit about Cynthia’s pending marriage with Peter Thomas, who co-owns Uptown.

This is great publicity for Uptown except for one problem: the place shut down a few weeks ago. Cynthia in an interview with me last week admitted they had financial problems.

Another problem is the name: there’s already an Uptown Comedy Corner less than three miles away. How confusing!

Other bit players: Lawrence, a gay hair stylist who hangs out with Sheree Whitfield and is competing for Dwight for the “catty gay friend” spot on the show. And Sweetie, Kim’s new assistant and partner in crime.

And to prove Phaedra has a career, we see her working with a client who has a pot possession problem. The show does not identify him as anybody of note. Moments later, we see Kandi working with superstar R&B singer/producer Ne-Yo. She expresses a desire for a solo career despite success as a songwriter. He notes that she should not let go her songwriting because that is lucrative and less strenuous.

In other news:

- Kim Zolciak finds out she has been invited to a gay “White Party,” to sing “Tardy for the Party.” (We also find out Kandi was going to split proceeds of that song she helped salvage but in the end let Kim keep the entire $80,000 to $100,000.)

- Sheree goes on a blind date with a guy who likes to dance and teaches her some moves. She finds his laugh loud, doesn’t like the outside of the nightclub. But she is otherwise charmed.  A second date is forthcoming. The guy’s unusual name looked familiar to me: Tiy-E Muhammad. I did some Googling and realized the guy was on this atrocious reality show from 2005 on TBS called “The Real Gilligan’s Island.” (If you want to know more about him, a former colleague of mine Andrea Jones wrote a lengthy piece about him and his credentials.)

NOTABLE QUOTES

“Jaywalking! I don’t want to go to jail!”Kim, with her assistant Sweetie crossing a major road to get a free beer instead of jogging.

“Phaedra claims to be this big-time entertainment attorney… But excuse me. Bobby Brown was ten years ago!” - NeNe, not impressed with Phaedra’s resume.

“I am a white girl in a black girl’s body. I can’t dance.” - Sheree.

“I kept thinking that Dwight might be jumped by those heffers,”Phaedra, referencing NeNe & Co. at Uptown Lounge & Restaurant.

RATINGS

There are signs RHOA mania is waning. Last week’s season three debut drew 2.4 million viewers, down from the 2.7 million who watched the second season launch.

FLASHBACK

Here is a story we wrote about Sheree’s date back in 2005:

Reality TV star Tiy-E Muhammads resume has more holes than the S.S. Minnow after the weather started getting rough and the tiny ship was tossed. The former Clark Atlanta University associate professor turned castaway on TBS’ “The Real Gilligans Island” has called himself a psychologist on his Web site and book jacket covers, yet he is not licensed to practice psychology in Georgia or anywhere else.

Kara Sinkule, a spokeswoman for the Georgia secretary of state’s office, said Muhammad, known as “The Love Doctor” on a local radio station, could face misdemeanor criminal charges.

Claiming you are a psychologist without a license is illegal, she said.

Muhammad, 35, says he’s a doctor, but he didn’t earn a Ph.D. in psychology at the school from which he has said he graduated, school records show. In fact, he attended Southern Illinois University for just one semester as an unspecified graduate student, said SIU spokesman Tom Woolf.

Muhammad said he left Clark Atlanta, where he was an associate professor in the psychology department for four years, because he wasn’t paid enough and he “no longer felt that spark” from teaching. School officials said he left after they discovered his credentials were bogus.

Muhammad said that in 1999 he founded a nonprofit organization called “Man II Man Inc., ” which his Web site states is “dedicated to uplifting, motivating and educating inner city youth.” Actually, the organization is a for-profit company, said Cara Hodgson of the secretary of state’s office.

Muhammad said he had not “filed the paperwork” to make the corporation nonprofit. “I’m still forming the board of directors, ” he said. On Tuesday, the Web site was changed to describe the organization as “community-based, ” rather than nonprofit.

Muhammad has said he was a psychologist in Illinois, where he was originally from, but a search on the state’s Financial and Professional Regulation Department Web site and a check with the department’s spokesperson revealed no evidence to support that claim.

On Saturday, a nattily dressed Muhammad was signing two of his self-published books, “The Secrets Men Keep, ” and “My Mind, My Body, My Spirit, ” at a Barnes & Noble in East Point and dishing dirt on his stint on “The Real Gilligans Island.”

The “Survivor”-style show, which airs Wednesdays on TBS, pits two teams of castaways against each other for a top prize of $250,000. Muhammad fills one of the two “professor” roles. The heavily promoted show debuted June 8 and will run through June 29. It was taped in 2004 and has an average weekly viewership of 1.7 million people, studio officials said.

Wearing crisp white pants, an embroidered denim blue shirt and black leather Gucci sandals, Muhammad signed two of his books on relationships — published under his own Man II Man Inc. imprint — and autographed black-and-white headshots of himself labeled “Dr. Tiy-E Psychologist/Author” in large letters.

“If you go to bed at night not feeling comfortable with who you are, I feel sorry for you, ” he told the group of about 20 women, flashing a dimpled smile. “Everyone should love themselves.”

In an interview with a reporter Saturday, Muhammad said he decided to leave Clark Atlanta in the summer of 2004 to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

“The job became a chore. It was a stale routine. It wasn’t a challenge anymore, ” he said.

Asked Monday if he left the university because officials there questioned his credentials, he hesitated, then said, “I don’t have a problem with that.”

When pressed about the discrepancies, he said, “That is not anybody’s business.”

Charismatic and handsome, Muhammad first attracted national attention as a regular on the syndicated “Ricki Lake Show” as a “resident relationship expert” in 2002. He made numerous appearances on the talk show over the next two years while teaching at Clark Atlanta. School administrators would not comment on how Muhammad got his job with a faked resume or why he was allowed to teach for so long.

Both Jet and Ebony magazines quoted Muhammad as a psychologist and relationship expert in articles dating back to 2001. In 2003, Ebony named him one of 26 “Best Bachelors of the Year.” Ebony officials declined to comment this week, saying they had not had an opportunity to check into the matter.

Turner Broadcasting officials released a brief statement: “Tiy-E Muhammad met the professor criteria for the production company to cast him as a contestant on ‘The Real Gilligans Island.’ They felt he was a good reality character.”

Laura Mandel, a spokeswoman for Telepictures Productions, the show’s producer, said, “We do not discuss the casting process.”

Marietta psychologist Mark Roland, a board member of the Georgia Psychological Association’s independent practice division, called Muhammads use of the term psychologist “the worst kind of betrayal of the public’s trust.”

“This is the first time I’ve heard of someone taking it to this level, ” Roland said. “It raises legal and ethical issues.”

Muhammad, who received a master’s degree in guidance and counseling from Eastern Illinois University, said Monday he was unaware that claiming to be a psychologist without a license was illegal.

“I checked it out when I moved here. It’s not against the law, ” he said.

But when a reporter read Muhammad the Georgia Law Code that relates to psychologists (Sec. 43-39-7), he said, “I’m a life coach, I say I’m a life coach. It makes things simpler.”

On Tuesday, he changed his Web site, dropping the description of himself as a psychologist. He later acknowledged he had not graduated from Southern Illinois but said he had a doctorate from an unaccredited online university. He did not provide immediate documentation.

In the last five years, Muhammad has spoken on dozens of college campuses around the country, from Georgia Tech to Notre Dame. He said he gets 50 to 75 e-mails a day through his Web site, www.onelovepoet.com, asking for relationship advice.

He’s turned “Secrets Men Keep” into a play that is scheduled for Sept. 6-11 at the Bois-feuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, backed by local theater promoter Preston Elliott. Muhammad ran his own casting call in May and will play the lead. A promotional flier says the play is a “Man II Man Development” production.

Muhammad co-hosts with Ramona Debreaux on HOT 107.9 a Wednesday morning radio show on relationships.

General Manager Wayne Brown said the station does not refer to Muhammad as a psychologist or Ph.D. They call him “The Love Doctor.”

“I don’t think you need to be a doctor to have a male opinion, ” Brown said.

Former Clark Atlanta University student Ivory Jones, who graduated with a minor in psychology in 2000, said students often questioned Muhammads teaching methods.

“It seemed more like he wanted to come across as a ladies’ man and not as a legit professor, ” Jones said. “He’s really attractive and well-spoken. I guess that’s why he was able to carry it off for so long.”

Yes, this show should be called “THE NENE LEAKES SHOW” she’s very entertaining!!! I love this show (seeing there is nothing else relevant on tv these days). Nene handled her son tonight. She is going through what a lot of mothers are going through with their teenage kids. I don’t care what people say about NENE she’s truly a real person. Dwight is so happy he got her off of his back. Dwight looked like he was so afraid of NENE…he said he’s a tiger, he was acting more like a cub. I like Sheree this season also, the only thing about her is that she needs to get off her her high horse and open up to being more humble and grateful.

@ NENE FAN & Billy, not necessarily that what may/may not happen, HOWEVER…Lawrence did stated or should I say alluded that his friends “knew” Apollo when he was formerly incarcerated. In other words, there’s more than meets the eye with Apollo. As the season further progress, we’ll know more information regarding that statement Lawrence & Sheree made.

Trash, Trash, Trash. This show should not be on TV. Young girls are drawn to it and don’t understand it is entertainment only. Sadly, they aspire to be like these women. It is very unfortunate that this is what Bravo has decided to show as examples of Black females. These women are very poor symbols for any Black woman, must less Southern Black women. Many don’t realize it, but young black girls have many problems to overcome and negative sterotypes such as these women only make the problems worse for these young women. Think about it: they have babies without being married, fight with each other, marry felons, obsess about their appearance. Very little is said about education. If you care about young girls please turn off this program!!!!!!

The importance of eduction is taught in the home by parents not reality shows and how dare you mention race and gender when you yourself don’t have to watch this show. Do you mention race or gender when you watch housewives of DC or Beverly Hills? They all act a fool and it’s for ratings and entertainment. I don’t ever hear kids talking about any of these shows. My teenager watches this show but I don’t see her wanting to be like anybody on the show. TV is only going to get worse and whether we like it or not we don’t have to watch any of the shows that come on.

The Professor was a fake on one reality show, and then he would go find the fake on another reality show.

Doctor’s Orders, Degree’s Fake
June 22, 2005

The former Clark Atlanta University associate professor turned castaway on TBS’ “The Real Gilligan’s Island” has called himself a psychologist on his Web site and book jacket covers, yet he is not licensed to practice psychology in Georgia or anywhere else.

Tiy-E Muhammad is a ‘professor’ on the TBS reality show ‘The Real Gilligan’s Island.’ But Clark Atlanta University says it let him go. His credentials are as uncharted as a desert isle.

Kara Sinkule, a spokeswoman for the Georgia secretary of state’s office, said Muhammad, known as “The Love Doctor” on a local radio station, could face misdemeanor criminal charges.

Claiming you are a psychologist without a license is illegal, she said.

The RHOA didn’t fail to entertain, while building our relationship with two new inductees.

Why isn’t Sheree taking acting classes from Nene? Ms. Nene ain’t wasting time whipping out wildcards to prove she’s Nene with Nine Lives and determined to snag a TV role for each one. On the real tip, couldn’t help but feel Nene’s parenting skills need support from any of the dozens of books published on the topic. I know parenting books and counselors don’t fit the traditions of Black folk. But the ways of kids have evolved, yet (many) Black parents still employ tradition and techniques that are past expiration (ie. threats, verbal abuse, whuppings). On the flipside, knucklehead kids usually need a brush with severe pain to flip their script. Based on Bryce’s shabby appearance and poor verbal skills the only job he’ll likely snag is third shift security or frying wings in that joynt Sheree went to on that bogus blind date. Not dissing the authenticity of Nene’s distress and emotional plea, but discarding a son with a ‘don’t return after you leave’ could bite her in her… new nose in her gray, geriatric years. Plot twist: Bryce pulls himself together, learns to clean a house, dodges a life sentence in an orange jumpsuit and becomes care-giver to his momma who was too strict.

So Myleik is gone, Peace out girl. Did Myleik and Kim fall out because Myleik didn’t see career value in having face time on RHOA like her new assistant (with cheap weave)? Boo, don’t go on RHOA with synthetic strands, we see enuf of that on the show already.

The anonymity of online prison pen pals can be jeopardized it seems. For a messy queen to drop the ‘tea’ on the studly (and speechless) Apollo was the scream of the night. Someone give Apollo a line or two, thought most bruhs used lockdown to read and expand vocabulary.

Hope Kandi redeems herself for bad business move. Being a generous matriarch is admirable, but a thoughtful, business-savvy matriarch is a better role model for anyone entering that industry. Girl, you deserve $$$ for your talent! Kim is a talentless, opportunist not worthy of your free services.

The 64-million-dollar question: What will push Dwight to drop the $500 trump card he’s holding? Was “investment” for Gregg’s gambling debt or another addiction? Meek and mild but we sniffing out Gregg’s risque side.

@Rodney, Like! when your investigative work delivers juicy, insightful nuggets, it makes your recap way more interesting for those of us who watch–bet you knew this.

Well, well I think NeNe gave her son some tough love last night I just hope it worked because he appears not to be wrapped too tight and with that being said he is doing her a favor by not hanging around the younger son he deserves a chance. I believe definitely NeNe is having some family problems and it is taking a toll on her and family but she still manages to be NeNe loud and opinionated. The new lawyer Phaedra I think is really pathetic and why she would want to draw negative attention to herself is beyond me, she doesn’t have a clue about being a southernbell. And what’s up with that high nap in the back of her head? The new person Cynthia seems to be very nice and is she were smart she would either exit this show with grace or start a class and her first student should be Kim’s daughters. Kandi I think you are a beautiful person but please do something with the hair and stop letting Kim use you she is not your friend. Sheree you need to stop trying to be something you are not, yeah you were married to a NFL player but you still you know have no class, sorry!! Kim again hopeless get a clue, Dwight you are funny get some business and Sheree beautician funny as all get out love him/her confused need help. That’s my take on things for this week. “Smooches”

To keep it on: Maybe you teach your children the value of education at home and that is great. Housewives of Atlanta would be fine if all teenagers had the maturity to understand that this program is fake and if the value of education was taught to every child at home. Unfortunately, in many cases there is no one in the home to teach young children or teenagers. Many children look blindly to TV stars as role models and if you don’t believe it then you are very uninformed. And it is very tiring for people to always turn everything into a race issue. This article is not about the other Housewives shows so why did you bring race into it? A little oversensitive are we? Bringing race into an issue seems to be a way of deflecting the conversation when it is about something that is a little too close to the truth. If you are basing your opinion on how your own daughter reacts to the show then you have a very narrow view. Maybe you should go into a local high school and see for yourself how students act before you assume young girls are not influenced by the negative sterotypes on TV. You will be very surprised.

I have better things to do than watch a grown, ghetto, 40-something-yr-old woman act like she’s still in middle school. Nene is a disgrace to the show and grown women every where.

Ahh, the RHOA. What a shame. It just goes to show, money cannot buy class.

NeNe APPEARS to be dumber than a doorknob. The only things she is proficient in is creating drama. She is drama personified. The only thing that moves me about her is the unfortunate situation with her son. Why is she telling everyone about her marital problems. That should be private. And Gregg supported her and her son for years and now that she has a few $$$ she isn’t in love with him anymore. Hmmmmmm

Kim is a joke as a mother. Her kids have no respect for her. Who can blame them. The sad part is that she just doesn’t get it.

Kandi needs a new stylist and some TRUTH-TELLERS in her life.

Phaedra is a joke. What “Southern Bell” takes care of a grown man that’s not her son? She states “He doesn’t want her money, he signed a pre-nuptial agreemant.” So what? He still has access to her money if she has any. What attorney would open their lives to a reality show like RHOA? She must have fallen on lean times. I mean Bobby Brown seems to have settled down now that he doesn’t have Whitney to pay his legal fees.

No class, no class, no class.

Rodney, I just read your entire piece on Muhammad. I remember him well because after he started getting busted back in 2005 about his lies he appeared on the Frank Ski morning show to do some more lying. Muhammad claim that he never claimed to be a psychologist. He said he was a life coach. I almost crashed when hearing that. He was on numerous programs claiming to be a PhD. I was upset at Frank for letting him continue with his lies. Frank just let him talk & talk. He was suppose to be a friend of the morning show but after that I think V103 cut Muhammad off from using V103 as a platform to continue his hustle.

I have a cousin just like Muhammad in Wisconsin. He has never been to college in his life but business cards & voice mail that say Dr. in front of his name. He is also preaching. Everyone in the family know he is a scam artist. He has been to jail twice over stealing from state funds but every time he get out he uses a different last name & get another state job having to do with the public’s money. He started a charter school & hired his sister (WHO DIDN’T EVEN GRADUATE H.S) as a teacher.

Can we get a show that doesn’t show black males as being gay, a convicted felon, drug dealer, or unemployed. There are very prominient and educated black males living and working in Atlanta. What a total embarrassment to the black race.

I am a mother/grandmother that felt all you were telling your son in my bones. As i was listening I was hoping through the tears Byrce was ready to say, I”m sorry Mom. But like my son and daughters, I am always disappointed. NeNe I was with You all the way girl. Continue to use tough love with Byrce. That episode should have been seen by all mothers. You did the right things our kids don’t have a clue what life has in store at 30 if he doesn’t do for himself now. He will be back. Thanks Ne that was a part of my life you share with the world. Even though so sincere, an oscar performance. Praying you find your happy back. Putting all, second, . I find happiness in Chris.t. may God continue to bless you and yours.

I would never jeopardize my family for a camera like Nene Leakes is does. Nene is so caught up in that camera until she has start spinning in her own web. She is slowly loosing it.
I can’t wait for Dwight to reveal why he loaned Greg money. That is really going to knock NeNe over.
Better enjoy family life while you can Nene. You chastized Bryson for not spending time with his younger brother. As a mother you are never shown spending time with him either.

I can’t believe Dr. Muhammad took Sheree to a club on Campbellton Rd. WOW….Call the police that was a Negative! However, Sheree was wearing that blue dress at Uptown Supper Club….she did that and look CUTE! Gone girl! I didn’t relize NeNe didn’t have ANY side teeth at the bottom until I read one of the comments last week. I clearly saw last night ALL her missing bottom teeth. OKAY or should I say HELLO 1-800-DENTIST!

“Keep it on” do you actually let your teenage daughter watch this crap? Does this show and the way they act make you proud to be black? What I’m going to say has nothing to do with any DC or Beverly Hills Housewives Show. It has to do with how black women and men are shown in Atlanta on HWOA and I for one am tired of the negative way it shows black women and men. I know it is fake and if it was a comedy then it would be ok. But it is promoted to be a “reality” show so some people don’t know any better and think it is real. We have a hard enough time overcoming prejudices without having people think all black people are this way. It just plays into the sterotypical blacks as fighting, loud mouthed, trashy, oversexed, ghetto females and unemployed, ex-convict males. Black women and men have come too far to have to put up with this crap.
