Real Housewives of New Jersey: Season 6, Episode 1: What a Difference A Plea Makes

One Sentence Summary:  It’s not just the Guidice jury that is out… we’re still not sure Auntie Dina and some newbies can they save the franchise after nixing some key Jersey ladies (fish eye to you Bravo for letting Caroline go).

Just because… WOW, that hair!!

Just because… WOW, that hair!!

Melissa’s Thoughts:

My favorite Auntie Dina returns and I couldn’t be happier… For real!!  Not gonna lie…  I’d “skin her to wear like last season’s Versace.” if she’d let me.  I mean I would Staubb her or anything, jus hang and drink wine.  There’s a chance she might even be able to earn the Jersey ladies an increase to their allotted 500 or less. But let’s face it, she has some stiff competition what with Joey’s constant “stiff”  and such comments and the newbies who already rub me the wrong way and I’ve only seen previews.

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Season 6, Final Episode: Final Curtain Call

One Sentence Summary: It’s the curtain call for Kandi’s musical but will it be curtains for the ladies’ relationships?

Melissa’s Thoughts:

She may say she has an inner Beyoncé… but methinks it's more an inner Tony Manero

She may say she has an inner Beyoncé… but methinks it’s more an inner Tony Manero

OK, so let’s pretend I have the time to catch myself back up on RHOA… no travel schedules, work schedules, no house work needing attention, no family crisis, no birthdays to manage. Yeah, while we’re at it, let’s also pretend I’m not hung-over by the aforementioned child’s birthday party followed by some day drinking at the club. Of course this will all be while Disney woodland creatures frolic and sing at my feet. Unfortunately friends we live in reality of schedules and this bitch is going to need to jump back in “we will now return to your regularly scheduled program already in progress” style. Thankfully these RHOA ladies are creatures of habit which means someone will be pissed at someone else, NeNe will roll her eyes, Porsha will treat her role in Kandi’s production like she would treat any form of a J-O-B, Kenya will attempt a twirl of some sort or liken herself to Beyoncé and Mamma Joyce is still going to have the stink eye for Todd. Seems like we’re caught up no?

Oh man, this is the finale? Man I’m in trouble!!

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Season 6, Episode 15: Dropping the Ball

One Sentence Summary:  The masks and gloves are about to come off between Kenya and NeNe.

Melissa’s Thoughts:

Yes Cynthia, I'm back and blogging on full speed.  I know... it's shocking.

Yes Cynthia, I’m back and blogging on full speed. I know… it’s shocking.

Here we go, back on schedule with my ATL ladies (kind of) only to resent them for cutting into my winter Olympics enjoyment.  Listen, I’m not an athlete… by ANY stretch of the imagination (imagine the polar OPPOSITE of athlete and that’s me) so to me it is amazing to watch these people who have reached the absolute peek of their sport.  I can’t help myself but want to take in all I can.  I digress, Mama Joyce is back to attack Kandi’s relationship in some way or form and I’m going to try to be respectful of that woman, but there’s a chance I’m finally going to lose my shit with her antics.  Only Porsha’s “audition” has the opportunity to put a smile on my face this week.  Oh yeah, and Kenya tries to show NeNe up… let’s all pretend we don’t know how THAT will go down.  Oh silly, silly Kenya.  You need to watch the back episodes to know this will not go well for you.

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Season 6, Episode 14: Peaches Divided

One Sentence Summary:  Once the men cool down the ladies get all fired up.

Melissa’s Thoughts:

NeNe and Cynthia turn to interpretive dance to debrief the PJ debacle.

NeNe and Cynthia turn to interpretive dance to debrief the couples therapy PJ debacle.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m still scratching my head over the whole chaotic couples PJ night.  And it’s not over yet!  Now it’s the ladies turn to release a little steam, but seriously if fist start flying with this crew in their little PJs I’m thinking someone’s girls are going to make a guest appearance.  I’m going back to my theory that it’s really not a good idea to combine booze and couple’s therapy.  No good can ever come of it.
