This Right Here

I LOVED Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion. The ladies were not holding back, like we've seen them do the last few seasons, and it definitely made a for an awesome start to the three part reunion. The star of this first part, in my opinion, was Nene. Not because she was in the right or anything, but because the majority of the conversation centered on her. We'll see if that changes on Thursday when Part 2 airs. Let's jump right in and give these ladies their marks for the week.

Nene: Gotta start with you, boo. I still love you, but I'm still hurt at your comments on the finale. However, I'm going to focus on this week, so believe me, I'll be fair. Like I mentioned earlier, you were the star this week. You gave us gold, Nene. The faces, the one liners, the comebacks, the facial expressions, they were all fantastic. But because you're so "over it", I'm begging you, once again, to not come back next season. But let's talk about your performance on Part 1. I think you were smart to say the whole Bedroom Kandi party just wasn't your thing. We know this. You didn't apologize, but you acknowledged that you were uncomfortable, and "over it". You also said you were over dealing with the ladies on the show. Another reason why you shouldn't come back next season. I thought it was nice when you congratulated Kim on her pregnancy, that was very cool of you. Your tiff with Sheree will go down in Housewives history. That thing was epic. I LOVED that you called Chateau Sheree "Neverland", which it is, and that you said it was a bunch of dirt and sticks, which it is. That's the Nene we like, keepin' it REAL. The whole Celebrity Apprentice/rich bitch portion was exhausting, because I understood that you were saying you're rich PLUS you had Trump checks coming in. In addition to your other projects, in other words. Sheree just couldn't comprehend that, probably because she doesn't have a job. Best line of yours, I think, was "What's YOUR status at the bank?". There's your next t-shirt right there. Oh and "I'm gonna give you this right here, UH!", (insert stank face and open hand thrust). I loved that whole piece. I also agreed with you on Sheree going after Bryce, and making his mistakes in any way your fault. You're right, he is an adult and every parent tries to raise their kids right. Once the kids are grown and make their own choices, it's on them. Believe me, I know. I think you made yourself very clear about not caring what anyone else says or does. I have seen your tweets about Kim and although you're not the only one that talks sh*t, just be prepared for her to keep throwing it in your face. Again, I think this should be your last season on Housewives, and I think an apology is in order for your Twitter followers, if you haven't already done so. Nene's grade for the week: B (for entertainment purposes and I agreed with a lot of what she said.)

Kandi: I'm very happy that Bedroom Kandi is doing so well. It really is a testament to your business savvy, so more power to you on that. I think you made an awesome point about Nene's whole attitude this season - she even said herself that she's over it. Congratulations on your new relationship, also! It is interesting that he works for Bravo, too. Do I smell a spinoff? And I'm not talking about Kandi Factory. I do believe you were joking when you told Sheree and Kim that Nene said she's rich - duh, they already knew she said that. Of course it was a joke. And you have always given Nene credit for her hustle - yes, you did insinuate she couldn't afford the $9 million home, but none of us thought she could afford it. I hope we hear more from you on Part 2 on Thursday. Kandi's grade for the week: A.

Kim: Congratulations on your pregnancy. I don't mean to be harsh with you, but I can't not point out the problems I had with you on Part 1. The whole nannies conversation was about your behavior on the show - but you totally side-stepped the question and made it about how hard you have it. Please. You won't talk about Big Papa out of respect for Kroy, which I can totally understand, so I'm with you on that one. I do have a problem with you having little side-bar conversations with Sheree and not speaking up until it's convenient for you. If you have something to say, say it to EVERYONE. That's why you're there. Speak up! I agree that Kandi is the richest bitch in the room, so that's two things we agree on so far. I think you should just stop worrying about what Nene says about you because you talk about her as well. Call it even and move on. And most of what she says is correct! You even admitted your daughters have different fathers - and I remember what she tweeted, and although it was shady, it was technically accurate. And you admitted you rented the house because Kroy was a free agent, and that you just closed on it recently. Again, accurate. Just don't pay attention to her anymore, and here's a thought, stop talking about her, too. Then, it'll just be over and done with. What a concept! Kim's grade for the week: C.

Sheree: I've been tough on you all season, and I'm afraid that pattern is going to continue. First of all, Phaedra took your case seriously enough to even touch it. Because, frankly, with your track record, I don't know who else would have taken your case. Even if she did want to do everything in front of the cameras, it was probably to cover her own ass in case you wanted to screw her over later. Moving on, Chateau Sheree is not finished because you don't work. End of story. I find it so off-putting that you're completely inarticulate. Honestly, it's SO bad, Sheree. Please, work on that. The fact that you never did anything with your Housewives platform just shows that you're not as pulled together as you want us to believe. She by Sheree was YEARS ago, and you're STILL promising to bring it back. Let it go. Also, let the whole Trump check thing go. You think you caught Nene in a lie, but you didn't. You think you caught Phaedra trying to screw you over, you didn't. You brought up Nene's son to make her look bad, it didn't work. All this adds up to you being FIRED. You're not invited back next season. Just stop, take a breath, and focus on what you're going to do next. And make sure that trying to tear people down isn't on your agenda anymore. Sheree's grade for the week: F.

Phaedra: I don't see you as the dishonest type, so I think you did your best with Sheree's case. You even gave her the check back even though you did work on her case and show up in court for her. I say, stay away from Sheree in the future. You were right to call her the Queen of Throwing People Under the Bus, because that's all she does. I think it was really nice of you to call Nene congratulating her on Glee. Hopefully we'll see and hear more from you on Part 2 on Thursday. Phaedra's grade for the week: A.

Cynthia: We didn't hear much from you, but I want to say, you looked gorgeous. The segment on your Africa looks was great. You were definitely the best dressed and tressed on that trip. Now, you had Nene's back, which was expected. I just hope she's as good a friend to you as you are to her. We'll see you and Peter on Part 2 on Thursday. I'm looking forward to that. Cynthia's grade for the week: A (based on the little bit that we heard from her).
