‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ recap: season four, reunion show, part 2

real-housewives-part-two

This part two of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion was pretty somnolent until hot mess and would-be “Housewife” Marlo Hampton stepped in to rile things up one more time.

Possibly resentful she didn’t get promoted to be a full-time cast member, Marlo freely cast aspersions on Kim Zolciak after hearing Kim’s earlier comment that Marlo used her “hole” to get places.

“I feel you and I are cut from the same cloth,” Marlo said. Then she wrinkled her nose and added, “You know what? I take that back. You’re a whore.”

“You ruined a happy home. I’ve never dated a married man. Next time you talk about the hole between my legs, measure yours,” Marlo added.

“First of all, I didn’t ruin a happy home,” Kim said. “That’s a lie No. 1. No. 2 I’m not a whore. No. 3. I’ m not an escort. You are. Big difference.”

“You don’t know me to call me a whore,” Marlo responded.

“You know me to call me that?” Kim retorted.

Marlo then insulted Kim’s hubby Kroy Biermann by saying he couldn’t afford the ring Kim is wearing. She claimed Kim sold Big Poppa’s ring to help pay for Kroy’s ring. Kim denied it. [On Twitter, Kim's daughter Brianna took a photo of both rings side by side to prove Kim still had Big Poppa's ring. Kim also said Marlo is just jealous because she didn't end up making it on the cast.]

With the “escort” line still reverberating in her ears, Marlo challenged that statement. Kim said she heard through friends. “You don’t know no one I know,” Marlo said, showing her grammatical finesse.

Marlo seemed to be enjoying these arguments just a wee bit too much and there’s more to come Sunday.

Earlier, host Andy Cohen brought three of the husbands out – but not much happened.

- Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey rehashed the tension Peter had with Cynthia’s sister Mal, who was not in attendance. (This would have been a lot more fun if she had been.) Cynthia defended Peter, saying Mal went over the line against him. Peter said he was joking when he insulted Mal at the party and didn’t realize he may have gone over the line himself. And while there were doubts about the future of their relationship, Peter forcefully said they love each other. Cynthia was oddly more circumspect, saying “No one can predict what will happen between me and Peter.”

NeNe also said she never flirted with Peter, that they were just joking around. Peter called it a “fun, playful” relationship. NeNe blamed the “smalls” on the accusations. Phaedra and Kim denied it. Sheree was quiet.

- Kim will finally reveal her real hair on the spinoff ‘Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding,” debuting April 26.

Kroy said he loves kids and always wanted a huge family so Kim’s existing two kids, their baby and a second on the way, works well for him.

He is also unperturbed by Kim and NeNe’s relationship falling apart. “Friendships fall out,” Kroy said. “People come and go from your life.”

- They killed time by rehashing the “black baby” argument that dragged on over five or six episodes. I’m not sure they added much new to the equation though Sheree apologized for misconstruing Kandi’s comments. And Kim acknowledged that she hates flying and basically admitted that what Kandi said was true: she probably wouldn’t have gone on the South African trip even if the baby was not in the picture. (Then again, “RHOA” pays her enough money that she would have felt, um, legally obligated – like NeNe – to go.) I think it’s true that Kandi never meant to say anything racist at all.

- Kim never paid Kandi her due amount for ‘Tardy for the Party” and it’s clear that impacted their relationship. Kandi had been friends with Sheree but the whole “black baby” issue didn’t help matters.

- Phaedra and NeNe are not friends but don’t hate each other. Then again, there is no real desire to be friends either.

NOTABLE QUOTES

“I don’t drink 24 hours of the day. I don’t smoke 24 hours of the day,” – Kim. Yes. She has to sleep sometimes, too.

“Once NeNe came around, the smalls didn’t want me anymore” – Marlo Hampton.

“Still working on my etiquette,” Marlo, moments before calling Kim a “whore.”

TRAILER FOR SUNDAY

More drama with Marlo. Kandi goes after her with the “escort” line again. Kim mocks Cynthia for having a “backbone” in front of NeNe. And Sheree and NeNe argue once again.

RATINGS

NeNe’s battles with the other ladies ignited the reunion show last Sunday, generating 3.2 million viewers. This is the highest rated “reunion” episode in the show’s history.

Marlo is a very ugly spirited person, she needs Jesus and she needs to disappear. Her representation of AFRICAN WOMEN STINKS !!!!
And by the way, I am very proud of Kim and wish her and Kroy the best.

As a African American man, who lives in Atlanta, I would not want to have a conversation with any of these women, these ladies do not represent the class, and professional women that live in Atlanta.

This show represent everthing that is going wrong in our community we have sold our souls and intergrity for money these women are not good role models for any of our young daughters.

I am waiting to see these classless ladies put this energy in organizing our young women to vote, and teaching them how be young lady oh thats right, you have know how to be a lady to teach a young girl how to be one.

Even a slut can be used for good,

This show goes around the world and represent every stereotype image of Black women, this is why the Michelle Obama, Angela Bassettt of the world are so important for our daughters to see.

I don’t know where to begin!!

Lawerence is a weavologist extrordinaire! Love his work. Sheree and Marlo’s hair…beautiful. Cynthia please make an appt ASAP. I have locs but I can still appreciate a good weave.

Kroy and Apollo are some very pleasing eye candy. That’s the most I’ve heard Kroy talk. Of course, I tended to change the channel whenever he and Kim were on but he doesn’t sound dumb to me.

Phaedra got in a dig on Sheree. When Andy asked her about a donkilicious clothing line she said, well the clothing line idea has kind of been run to death or something like that. The look on Sheree’s face was priceless.

Why oh why oh why did they not show the clip from the conversation in Africa? For Sheree to be so appalled, she said nothing at the time. In fact she was laughing right along with everyone else. Phaedra was right, if she had a problem with it she should’ve talked to Kandi before running to Kim. She could’ve kept that lame apology too. When it was all said and done, Kim agreed with Kandi so it was over blown for nothing.

I understand Mal is the sister and Peter is the husband however I don’t undersand why Cynthia cannot admit Peter had a role in the incident as well.

Is Kandi wearing biking shorts under her dress??

Lastly, Marlo vs. Kim – game, set, match goes to Marlo. I am not a Marlo fan but I cannot for the life of me figure out why Kim thinks she’s not like Marlo. Kim now has this holier than thou attitude since she’s married and along with that attitude came a selective memory. Marlo slammed her and it didn’t matter if she was lying or not, she got her together and Kim did not recover.

Whew, on to Sunday.

I agree with gentleman on his comment, they do act classless and aren’t given any value of representation of ” Of the True African American Women that live in the Metro Atlanta area” Everytime you see the show, there fighting, throwing negative blows at one another. I guess they call this entertainment, I call it Dang I feel like I have no Value and don’t hve nothing to contribute to society but nothing. Ladies get your mind right, You have the forum to make something great instead your going back to the dark ages and representing us badly…. Peace and GET some ettiquette…. Money can’t buy Class!

mambo, what GM was saying as I interpreted his comment, instead of using all of that negative and not being lady like or a being good role models for young women. They should redirect that energy into a positive and tell our young women who are of voting age to get out and VOTE. Plain and simple.

NeNe is the most intelligent one on the show. Sheree is hating on NeNe because of her success
and poor Kandi she is just ignorant; Go NeNe right to the bank. The others will figure it out later.

The real problem with Sheree is she has nothing going for herself. She is boring. She wants to be more than she actully is. All the ladies on cast currently have a lot going for themselves. Nene is getting guest apperances on shows, Kandi has her sex toy line and producing with other singers, Cynthia has her modeling school(agency), Phaedra has her law practice and is currently in school to become a mortician and Kim has a new house, husband, spin off and baby. Where does that leave Sheree. My question is why is she so kissing Kim’s butt all of a sudden. Wonder if she borrowed some money?

AJ

Sheree get it right. Kandi and Cynthia were not calliing Kim a racist. Kim needs to reaaly look at the whole situition to see the Sheree blow this up to cause drama cause she needed some air time. Lawrence probbably does her hair for free because we all know she is broke.

I fell asleep and didn’t see it, but loved reading the recap! Why is this not on Xfinity On Demand? Other RH (other cities) episodes are. Did anyone catch that Kim said in the first reunion show that she made more $ than Kroy did last year? I did!

I abhor this cast and Bravo for making the rest of the world think that these are the types of people that make up Atlanta. In no way do these people represent the majority of true Atlantans. These are ghetto ladies (and I use the term loosely) that never paid attention in basic grammar school and definitely would have flucked out of charm school. Their grammar and behavior are equally abhorrent. These women are disgusting and are the poorest representation of our city. I am embarassed to share a zip code with them.

Listen NeNe has changed dramatically for the worse. I think she needs to slow down, go back to her natural hair color. Maybe she going thru a mid-life crisis
but she needs to to go to God and restore her marriage to a good man. Everybody make mistakes, NeNe you need to know that the devil is taking you on a ride to hell. As far as Cynthia, she needs to grow some courage, be who she is and open her eyes to what kind of friend NeNe really is. Peter is a bully and will make a fool out of Cynthia. Ladies out there…, you know this. Would you be married to a man like him. He;s hot-tempered, a bully and controlling. No wonder his first wife divorced him. He’s too old to be foolish…, you would think at his age he would be wiser and more humble.

I think Nene needs to concentrate on getting herlife together she seems very bitter about everything, always in the midst of an argument. way too old to look like a foll on TV, Kandi will do just fine I wish her relationship well. Marlo is a complete shame to black women EVERYWHERE, boujhetto!!! Sheree is a mess and really needs to get herself together for her kids sake and stop being such a liar. Phaedra is a riot but she is way to over the top with her son and his parties, Please tone it down lady it look stupid to have 12 cakes at one party…geesh! Cynthia is pretty and she needs a back bone she is a punk, Kim, well no comment on Kim, maybe the babies will calm her down and keep her grounded (Hopefully) Kroy seems very calm so maybe that will rub off on her.
But i will say this the show is Buffonery at it’s finest.

FOR THE PERSON THAT SAID SHE DON’T TAKE CARE OF HER KIDS YES YOU RIGHT AND YOU WAIT THAT OLDEST DAUGHTER GONE TO GIVE HER A RUN FOR MONEY.COMMA IS SOME ELSE. MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS WHERE IS (SWEETY) NO ONE TALKING ABOUT HOW SHE JUST GOT RID OF HER AND THE WAY SHE DID IT WAS NASTEY. KROY DIDNOT LIKE HER, WHAT SAID SHE WAS COOL ALL BEFORE KROY.

Bravo will continue to show this classless show as long as we have black women who are writing in to see it, this is whats happens when you let another race of people define who are black women are.

There was a time when black women would never dream of fighting and acting ghetto and following to the sterotype mode, but the new generation of women have a disconnect of self respect and pride, money has replace these women values and culture awareness.

Thank you Atlanta house wifes, for your continue efforts along with the white producers and directors to limit our true class of queens for showing their true talent in main stream movie roles.

We have 2 metro Atlanta women who just won the lottery in the past year.We have millionaires and billionaires who are well educated. We have women who are lawyers, judges, doctors, MBA, Phd’s ect.. Ok, so you have Khandi and Phaedra who have their own businesses and Kim an NFL wife.Lisa’s gone and we miss her. Can you please get more educated women. Your scraping the bottom of the barrel right now!
