That’s not Toni Braxton, it’s Marjorie Harvey, wife of comedian Steve Harvey.

The woman next to NeNe is Marlow Hampton who will be on the Real Housewives of Atlanta during the upcoming season.

Thanks Ms. Brett for covering all celebrities, real or not. Other attendees actually asked the two women to pose for pictures. The RHOA are filming at a spa in Alphatetta /Duluth today.
Check out Basketball Wives LA, if you really wish to make a comparison and actually view a ho-down.

You’re welcome. I don’t watch the RHOA or any other reality show, if you want to know the truth. But a bunch of y’all do. It’s a ratings bonanza for Bravo. In fact I think it’s the most popular of all of Bravo’s “Housewives” shows. My job is to write about what is interesting to readers, not what is interesting to me personally. If that were the case you’d be reading a blog about “This American Life.” I doubt anyone wants that.

Aren’t Black America sick and tired of so-called Black celebrities misrepresenting our culture? This is why other races do not respect us because we support this foolishness in our own cultures. From sagging pants to tattoos all over the bodies. We can not expect to be taken seriously if we are self-respecting people. Some celebrities and professional athletes are some of the worst expressions of a broken culture for Black peoples. We are the only culture that de-grade their own people, and publicly! Wake up Black America, Obama would not be proud (or MLK). Peace.

Finally, you call this entertainment? HWOA is a big joke! This is a prime example of a deteriorating Black cultural and America in general. These types of shows stay on the air simply because people keeps the rating high by watching them. They serve no good purpose. They are neither entertaining or educating. People think that as long as they are making money its ok. All money is not good money. Black people, such as myself, should be outraged that we are poorly represented by these clowns. We have accomplished much in this country but some of us are not showing good character and self-respect for our own. Wake up Black America! When do you want to be respected? First show self-respect and then demand respect from others. Peace.
