Kandi pretty much is the only likable “housewife” on that incarnation of the series. Well, I guess Cynthia is ok, too. But my guess is you’ll NEVER see NeNe, Kim, or Phaedra taking disadvantaged kids anywhere (unless they’re paid to do it and offered LOTS of on-air screen time for doing it).

Kandi’s daughter looks like a sweet heart…she looks cute with her glasses. Kandi seems to be a good parent, looks like she puts her time in with her daughter.

Is this event only for Black people? Is that how it got the name Mars? As in chocolate?

This screening was so ghetto and unorganized. They invited us and then put VIP signs on 50 percent of the seats. Atlanta is so “celebrity” obsessed. It’s so silly.

Atlantaphotog: Who said anything about “disadvantaged” kids? These are the “celebrities’” kids! And if this is the best Atlanta can do for a “celebrity” event, we are far behind everyone else – including most of Iowa, I presume. Don’t worry, we only missed out on free tickets for a movie – no biggie!

Ignorance is Bliss. Information of clarity, most preview screenings have some sort of marketing purpose. This one appears to be to attract more African American families. They invite celebrities that are recognized in the targeted markets household in hope of additional publicity.

Ignorance is not an excuse for stupidity.
