“Housewives” at Steeplechase

Locke and Burruss brave the weather in style

Locke and Burruss brave the weather in style

Crummy weather on Saturday didn’t stop some of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast members from clinking glasses under the Chairman’s Tent at the Atlanta Steeplechase. Bravo cameras were there rolling (naturally) as stylist Dwight Eubanks made the scene, Kandi Burrus sang the National Anthem

and two of the new additions, Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks, showed up looking elegant in lovely hats. B 98.5’s Vikki Locke was there partying with the “Housewives” crew, looking very lovely herself!

By the way, Vikki posted a thrilling video clip of her husband Mike learning to sabre a bottle of champagne.

Wielding the sword like a pro, he delivered a clean blow that got the job done without wasting one precious drop. Great job!

In order to be a “housewife”, one must be married. If not, you are “baby mama”, “jump-off”, or just plain hoe. this is straight garbage

The ATL is the wannabe and step child of everything.I can’t believe how this “town” praises mediocrity like there is no tomorrow. I’ll be at the real thing in Louisville this Saturday. What a bunch of losers!

Hey “sad brotha”: well, good for you, man. You’re so special, going to Kentucky and everything. I hope you find a quarter so you can call someone who cares.

Why are these people on any show ? This is so embarrassing for Atlanta .They do not represent the city ,they are trashy people and we actually give them space in the newspaper ???? What is wrong with this city ? We are not in the same league as Chicago ,New York ,Boston ..we are more in league with Detroit . Atlanta the Detroit of the South !

Good lord, please that the pic of Kandi Burruss of the the AJC’s front page! Could there be a more unattractive woman???? Nasty, just Nasty.

Money is green! Regardless of what a person looks like or what others might think of them. To bad you aren’t cashing those checks Kandi is endorsing and taking to the bank. She is a self made millionare producer. Guest who’s reaping some benefits and property taxes ATLANTA GA.
Ouch!!

To Jon and Sad Brotha (accurate name by the way) and Mambo: If you think so poorly of Atlanta, why the hell are you here? Oh, maybe because you couldn’t cut the mustard anywhere else. Do us all a favor and MOVE!!!! What’s stopping you? I get so tired of people who dog this city but live here. What kind of sense does that make? They’re 50 states in the United State. Pick another one and have at it, but since you’re such miserable people, you wouldn’t be happy there either.

s a Black woman I am deeply offended by Atlanta Housewives. As a woman, I am offended by then entire Housewives premise. Like most women, Ihave worked hard for what I have an avoided a lot of the foolishness, back stabbing, lack of real class and stupidity of these women. It is unfortunate this is the example that is presented to our young girls. The only one who appears to have any sense is Kandis and the one they put off. I have not watched the show since the 3 one. But I dont have to because these women and their antics are pushed down our throats and held out as perfect examples for others.

I heard some buzzzzz that Nene and her husband separated which means there are no married women on the Atl Housewives show, right? Exactly how does Bravo define “housewife”?

I think the entire “Housewives” thing is suppose to be entertaining. I think people realize that that’s not how the women of Atlanta act nor the women of Orange County & New York. I think we’re based that and realize these people are ignorant and are simply good to laugh at on TV. Besides Kandi, none of the housewives are Atlanta natives and TRUST, women that are truly from Atlanta act more like Kandi than the others.

I would never waste another second of my time at the steeple chase. I went once and have never seen so many pretentious and ugly as hell uppity women. Waaaayyyy o-v-e-r-r-a-t-e-d.

A bunch of overdressed and mortgaged to the hilt drunks in pasture outside near Carterville.

I can see how the “Housewives” fit in there.

The Horses were beautiful. Who he heck looks at the women during the Steeple Chase? It’s all about the horses.

Why would a trashy tv personality (I’m assuming, never watched it but I do see that picture) with pink hair sing the anthem? If it’s all uppity ugly females (which I do believe!!!), why would THEY be okay with that?? OR do they all just deserve each other….okay, maybe it does make sense.

I think “Sad Brotha” is onto something! Atlanta seems to fall short in many things (i.e. Olympics, traffic, SAT scores, Real Housewives, education etc.) And now a faux race that everyone pretends they are at Churchill Downs? I’m with SAD Brotha on this one!

ummm not saying this is the best tv show to watch, but what does her having pink hair have to do with singing.. She is a force behind a lot of artist today not to mention she has a wonderful voice! Kandi, is probably the “realist” on the show…

Nobody goes to the Atlanta Steeplechase pretending they are at Churchill Downs – it is just a fun afternoon out in the country to see horses run once a year. What is wrong with all you people? Why does everything have to be compared to something else someplace else? Is Talladega less of an event because it’s not the Daytona 500? Is watching a baseball game live in Kansas City less because it’s not the NY Yankees? Grow up and let people enjoy what they enjoy.

Were you on the guest list?

Perhaps my dear, I was wondering if your name was on the guest list? Could it by chance be under another name? When did you RSVP and to whom?

no surprise her

LOL.. I crack up when I hear ppl say Kandi can sing.. I’ve heard her sing SEVERAL times and trust.. SHE CAN’T.. She is a decent song writer and nice person but that’s it..

Someone said she’s a force behind other artist in the industry… LOL.. if you say so..

Must be a relative of Kandi or kandi herself.. LOL..

The comedy.. I thought the red on her head was some weird hat.. I didn’t realize she actually did that to herself.. FUNNY!~

no surprise her

oh lastly.. the housewives at a horse run.. too funny….. The producers of the show must be trying to class them up some.. WON’T WORK… All those chicks are hood…

The newest additions to the cast must be an attempt at classing the show up too.. actually women with some business about themselves..

Kandi is using the show to help get her career back on track and with her wack album she may want to go back to the studios..
