Reality Rewind: Classic Sayings From Our Favorite Shows
Reality shows have literally taken over every channel on television. While many shows come and go there are some that are unforgettable. Especially with characters that leave us with their classic lines that we can’t stop saying!
Here are a few that we might not ever forget…
“Who Gon’ Check Me, Boo?” (Real Housewives of Atlanta)
Ahhhh, Sheree Whitfield! Well, this phrase stems from what looked like a staged argument in 2009 with a so-called party planner – excuse me, top level executive – who wasn’t living up to her expectations in regards to her “divorce party.” They started to argue, the TOL told Sheree she needed to be put in her place and voila, the phrase we’ve come to know and love arrived.
“Lay It Low and Spread It Wide” (Braxton Family Values)
This one comes from Mama Braxton spewing venom to her ex-husband about his philandering ways. Papa Braxton was trying to turn the tables on what went wrong and before you know it, Mama B let him have it: “I’m lying?! But you know you lay it low and spread it wide.” She had her mouth curled up and everything!
“You a non m*th****in factor, B**ch!” (Basketball Wives)
Tami and Evelyn Lozado were hashing through the messiness of Evelyn having dated Tami’s ex-husband when Ev through that dagger out. It got her mushed in the face but that quote gave her character new life.
“Mandown! Code 10!” (The Way It Is)
We could always count on Keyshia Cole’s mom, Frankie, letting us know when either she or someone else were in such a messy situation that it was a “Mandown! Code 10!”
“I’m Not Doing this with you todaaaaaaaay!” (Being Bobby Brown)
During one of Bobby and Whitney’s many arguments on the show, she just got fed UP with his foolishness and sang to him the aforementioned quote. Let me tell you, Whitney held on the note for her LIFE. She was not trying to hear anything Bobby was saying. What a classic show – we could probably go on forever with quotes!
“dot com” (Braxton Family Values)
I mean, I don’t even know what else to say about this and Tamar Braxton. She adds “dot com” or “dot org” to just about everything to let you know she means business.
“You can’t vote me off the island, I AM the island!” (Basketball Wives LA)
Yes Jackie, we know – you are Queen Mother of all basketball wives. Well, the other girls on the show grew super bored with Jackie’s antics and didn’t want her around. Shock and with nothing else to say, the Jacks told them that she was EVERYTHING. I mean, an entire island, you know…
“This what you not gon do” (Basketball Wives)
I don’t even remember who Tami was unleashing at or about this go around but someone (as usual) was testing her patience. So, in true Tami form, she decided to clear up for the cast member that what they wouldn’t do was disrespect her.
