Welcome to Real Housewife of New York Bethenny Frankel's exclusive blog about The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Bethenny is blogging for E! Online every week, dishing about the craziness that goes down on the new season. Here's her latest Atlanta installment for episode three.
Take it away, Bethenny...
Truthfully, I thought the girls and Dwight (the wax figure/token gay) were playing it up for the cameras. I thought that Sheree went from straight hood to straight ghetto while pulling at Kim's wig in the street. She then clarified to boo that her locks were in fact a weave, versus a wig, as if that were some sort of street cred. Wendy Williams has a wig, so in my book, a wig trumps a weave. Incidentally, I thought Kim's wig was looking better this week. I digress. I know there must be something wrong in the universe or Mercury is in retrograde when Nene is the quiet one and Sheree makes Kim look classy.
What is wrong with me that Kim (or Jessica Rabbit on crack) is my favorite? She really doesn't care. She gets her thighs sucked instead of going to the gym, her language makes me look like a nun and I just can't take my eyes off her.
Now to Dwight's overacted, under-delivering party. Please don't make me watch cirque de so gay ever again. His pretending to be powerful and authoritative and his badgering of every painted jungle animal in that white cold warehouse was unpalatable. Keep your hands off Kandi's tits. Who made you the judger of anything stylish or fabulous? Please remove him from my line of vision.
Kandi seems cool enough, but aside from a truckload of baby mamas (or heifers as T-Boz hilariously called it) there's nothing interesting here. I'm not that excited for her wedding as I would normally be in Bravo fashion. It's too early to care. T-Boz stole the show by saying about Kandi's fiancé, "papa was a rolling stone." T-Boz is very pretty. I liked her, and neither of them have weight issues. They are Skinnygirls. I'm sending them my book to get rid of their food noise. Truly, I hope Kandi leaves her situation. There is too much baggage. Four exes that you had children with by the age of 34 is a massive problem.
Nene happens to look great. Why all the weight talk? I love Nene, and she is a big bitch, but she is a Skinnygirl, too. She owns it. She works those curves, and only dogs like bones. Speaking of dogs, hers are often all over the yard, but she looks fab this season. Her makeup, hair and whole gig is on. However, she did insult Tania with the sandwich comment. There is a double standard with fat and skinny. Saying to someone that they need a sandwich is no kinder than saying that someone could stand to lose a few pounds. However, Tania needs to check herself. I smell a new Housewife. Who the hell was she to call Lisa a swimmer, to refer to Nene as big and come on so damn strong? She's perfect for the Sheree camp.
Sheree is such a narcissist that she really needs to call that line "Me by Sheree" as I've said repeatedly. An independence party, a housewarming party and on and on. However, that party was very well done and looked fun. And now for another rare compliment from me: I thought those sketches looked great. Execution is another thing, but I would wear a She by Sheree dress. I don't, however, think she can shed the blood, sweat and tears to launch a fashion line. Business is tough. Can't wait to see the line though.
Lisa's clothing line Closet Freak sounds misdirected. Terrible name. My boyfriend and I now agree that we're not loving her. Where is all this success of hers? Why is she any more qualified than Sheree to do anything? What are the names of these major fashion lines she's worked on? She seems like the one who just wants everyone to love her but something inauthentic is shining through—just a gut instinct.
All in all, the show was a bit slow after the Kim-tervention, but I love me some Atlanta.
