Definition of "Gold Digger"

I'm gonna do things a little differently for this week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, so let me know how you like it. It's going to be an advice column/Dear Abby/critique type of situation.

Kandi: Country music is definitely a fun departure for you. I am also glad you're doing the Kandi Factory!!! This is going to put you above and beyond!! I do want to see you do more of your own music, because your album was FIRE! But, there's a time and a place for that, maybe later on. I suggest doing some dance tracks and getting your disco diva game on and popping. Also, you handled that Marlo mess with grace and sophistication. Her simple ass couldn't understand the fact that she blew up her own spot on your show by saying she got her money from God, when she really meant that she got it from sleeping with wealthy men. You should have asked her about all her mugshots. Kandi's grade for the week: A.

Cynthia: You have got to get yourself together, honey. I like you a lot, but you need to let your sister go and hire a real assistant, who's not related to you. Get someone straight out of college, some young'en who's detail oriented, and who won't try to hassle you about your marriage. I really don't like it when people call you dumb (Wendy Williams, I'm looking at you), but when you let things get out of hand (and say "peeper" instead of "people"), you don't help your case. As far as your problems with Peter, you've already confirmed that y'all are still together, so obviously you two are sticking together, which I love. I don't know why, but I love me some Peter! He's real, he's messy, and he's passionate. I wish he were more considerate of you, but I do see the love between you two, and I am rooting for you as a couple. Cynthia's grade for the week: C.

Nene: Is it just me, or do we just see you arriving at parties the last couple of episodes? Not that I don't LOVE your grand entrances, because I do! And I love love loved when you were laughing about Marlo talking about Big Papa in front of Kim. I also love that you're not intimidated or affected by anyone. Some may see that in a negative light, but I see it as standing on your own. So get it, girl, because you have nothing to be ashamed of. I would love to see you hosting tv shows and events, and I would also love an accessories line from you. Maybe shoes, too? Whatever you do, stay positive, stay true to yourself, and keep good people around you. Team Nene all the way! Nene's grade for the week: A.

Phaedra: Your breakup with Sheree was mature and kind. I'm proud of both of you. I think it takes a lot for women to agree to disagree, especially on a reality show, but I give both of you a lot of credit for doing that. You behaved yourself at the fashion school party, so that makes a couple weeks in a row that you didn't annoy the hell out of me. Keep it light and fun, and you'll be a fan favorite in no time. Phaedra's grade for the week: B.

Sheree: Like I said to Phaedra, congrats on the successful breakup. It was really encouraging. I don't really begrudge you going after the child support, I just think you need to be honest with yourself about how you got your money, and how you spend your money going forward. Just tone down the label dropping (Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino) or else I'm gonna have to start calling you Dana. Sheree's grade for the week: B.

Kim: I think your new house is stunning. Your baby is adorable. You're lucky to have such an amazing circle of family and friends around you. But your language around your kids is absolutely disgusting, and come on, pumping your breasts while driving??? Please tell me you did that for the cameras. Oh and going in on Marlo being a gold digger? What's your little phrase at the top of the show, again? "People call me a gold digger". Yes, because you are. You know exactly what that is, because you lived it. Don't you dare put someone else down for doing the exact same thing as you. Kim's grade for the week: D.

Watch What Happens Live was a lot of fun with Sheree and Lawrence. I was really impressed with Sheree's answers to viewer questions, and she clarified why she's fighting for child support. I did like her answer, and it makes me a little more sympathetic to her cause. Lawrence was AMAZING on the show. Especially the after show. He READ Ms. Phaedra the HOUSE DOWN!!!! Check it out here.
