My Thoughts on “The RHOA”

I want Nene's dress...

Ok, folks.  I don’t like to talk about people, but I just have to share my thoughts with you guys about Phaedra from last night’s episode of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta“.   If you didn’t watch it, Phaedra had her baby last night.   And as much as she tried to fool everybody, it was announced (by her doctor) that she was 40 weeks.   This whole time Phaedra was playing dumb like she didn’t know how far along she was.  Her pastor mama seemed shocked (in Phaedra’s family, you don’t have babies without being married), and according to some other folks, Apollo, her husband, seemed shocked as well.   So, this leaves people to speculate about what’s really going on.  Based on what I’ve read, Phaedra and Apollo got married in November of 2009.  She gave birth in May of 2010.  Hmmmm…yeah, something ain’t right.  And because I love drama on reality tv (and not in real life), I’m anxious to see if ANY of this will be brought up during future episodes.  Lastly, what mother says “Ewwwww, gross” when she sees her child for the first time.  Phaedra’s maternal instincts have not kicked in, and I actually feel for this little boy.  It seems that Phaedra is more concerned with being fly and pampered than being a mother to her son. 

Dr. Tiy-E, Sheree’s new squeeze, was getting GRILLED by everyone during Sheree’s Spades tournament.  (Since Spades is big in the African-American community-according to Sheree-is that why Kim was MIA???)  NeNe, being messy, snubbed Dr. Tiy-E when she met him.  As NeNe recalled there was a big scandal surrounding Dr. Tiy-E and the fact he wasn’t a real doctor, she went around and told everybody at the party.  Kandi also remembered the scandal when he was on a radio station.  All of this led to Dr. Tiy-E being subjected to the Spanish Inquisition from all of the guests at Sheree’s party; he got the worst from NeNe, Kandi, and Kandi’s mom.  Needless to say, I’m anxiously awaiting Sunday’s episode.

What were your thoughts on last night’s episode, if you watched?   I know EVERYBODY has an opinion on Phaedra’s lies, so please share yours.   Is Apollo even the baby’s daddy?  Were Phaedra and Apollo getting it on while he was still in prison?  You tell me!  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

This Week in the News-I’m Not Feeling It

Happy Friday!  I have to be honest with you guys-I don’t feel like doing ANYTHING today!!! (And that includes writing on this blog.) Now, don’t get me wrong.  I love you guys, and I love writing, but I’m just not feeling it.  I want to go home, lay down, and take a nap.  To keep with the theme of “I’m Not Feeling It”, I’ll share some news this week of people or things that I’m not feeling.

First, let’s talk about Eva Longoria Parker filing for divorce from cutie Tony Parker.  Now, I must admit I didn’t think this marriage would last that long, but not because of infidelity.   I just didn’t think it was gonna work out.  And it looks like Tony cheated.  I haven’t seen the woman who is the alleged mistress but from reading people’s comments on Facebook, I think it’s safe to say the side piece wasn’t as pretty as Eva.   I will not use this post to talk about how or why men cheat on gorgeous women, but I will say it takes more than a pretty face to keep a man.   No matter what happens, I hope Eva and Tony find peace and happiness whether together or apart.

I’m not a Chelsea Handler fan, so I’m not that familiar with her jokes or her show.  As I was driving into work this morning, I heard a clip from her show earlier this week where she basically said Phaedra from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was living the “African-American” dream because she was an attorney and was married to an ex-con.  (To watch the entire clip, go here.)  It’s really in poor taste, but from what I gather most things she does is in poor taste.  And what is her obsession with 50 Cent?!?!

Uh, so I don’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” on the regular, but I definitely won’t be watching the finale now that Brandy has been voted off, and Bristol Palin is still there.  #thatisall

That’s it for me today, folks! What are some things you’re not feeling? Have a great weekend, and until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
