It’s so good to be back in Atlanta. The season premiere “The Real Housewives of Atlanta
” was nothing if not an eventful hour of gossip, drama and more gossip. And we loved every sip of juice these Georgia peaches were serving. Sheree Whitfield declares acting as her new passion and holds a class in her living room, because, you know, she’s Sheree, and acting coaches come to her, not the other way around. Fierce! Kim Zolciak
tells NeNe Leakes
that a little birdie named Dwight said he loaned her husband Gregg $10,000 which he never gave back. NeNe confronts Gregg, who says that he and Dwight went in on an investment for $500 each and were meant to get a $200 return. Record scratch! A $500 loan with $200 return. What are they involved in, a pyramid scheme? Ever the scene stealer, NeNe confronts Dwight at a shoe party. “Did Gregg borrow $10,000?” she scoffs at her ex BFF, with fingers flying in his face. (Oh the drama!) “Save the drama for somebody else,” retorts Dwight, who by the way calls himself a “tiger” but acted more like a kitten when NeNe was all up in his face. Pregnant new housewife Phaedra Parks is introduced to the fold, and she’s dealing with gossip about her marriage to her 31-year-old husband, Apollo Nida, who is allegedly an ex-con. But Phaedra’s isn’t worried about her reputation. “If they aren’t talking about you, you aren’t relevant,” she says. Kandi is trying to move on from the death last year of her fianc AJ Jewel. Lucky for her, NFL player Willie McGahee provides ample distraction. She’s taking things slowly and tells him that she’s considering being celibate until December. ‘Is oral sex eliminated?” he asks. “No,” she answers coyly. Maybe it’s us, but the sexual tension between these two is so obvious. Good luck with celibacy Kandi. Kim is far from celibate, having recently overshared the details of her sex life with a national tabloid. She’s bisexual, but she’s already moved on from her relationship with a local female DJ. So is she with a man or woman now? We can’t keep up. What did you think of the season premiere? For more of the “Real Housewives” drama you love, click here.
