Why There’s No Hope For The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Looking at that headline some of you may be thinking, look who’s tardy for the party, and I can admit I am late to the fact that there is no hope for 99 percent of the women on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Having watched season 4 off and on, it’s evident I was blindsided by a few moments of optimism because outside of some of the banter in South Africa I really felt like some of these women had gotten their act together—and then I watched part one of the RHOA reunion last night. I’m not sure if the ladies were working overtime to get those hundred thousand dollar bonuses they reportedly earn from appearing on the show or what, but the overall situation was just a complete mess, and here’s why. All this time, I thought that the women on the show were just evil, catty trolls who liked to start stuff, now I realize the problem isn’t that they’re mean, it’s that they’re delusional. Case in point: Sheree Whitfield.
I could have run to the corner store and been back twice by the time Sheree figured out what lie she was going to tell about chateau Sheree and the um, um, um contractors who were misprapropriating (yeah I don’t think she said that word right) funds which put the project on hold. Honey, we know you don’t have any money, which is half of the reason why I was inclined to think the tears she cried when Andy asked her about child support were real, on the other hand they came way too quickly like she was sitting there building up water in her eyes waiting for him to ask her about it so I dismissed that charade. Also, am I the only one who almost fell out of the bed when Phaedra said “dirt and grass” was all she saw of Chateau Sheree? I really felt bad about Sheree supposedly getting kicked off the show before last night because I believe in my heart she’s about to be completely homeless, but after seeing her stumble through those lies, I can see she really has no clue that you actually have to have the money to pay for homes to be built. Unfortunately, she still thinks she’ll be having Andy over for tea. At the most they’ll be sitting on dirt and grass making mud pies.
Sheree does get points in my book for the way she handled Nene. From one delusional woman to another, Sheree clearly saw there was no point trying to get through to that very rich b**** and for the most part she decided she would let Nene look crazy on her own—and that’s exactly what she did. Kandi was absolutely right about having an attitude like she’s so above everyone else. Her disposition yesterday was so ridiculously new-money stank that I could hardly stand to watch. And considering the humble beginnings she came from and that Kandi so quickly pointed out, she ought to get a grip on that holier than thou attitude. Being too good to have a dildo up your butt but not classy enough to not call other women out their names and have a conversation like the mature adult she is in age is not a plus. Also, someone please school her on how quickly you can blow through a couple million dollars.
