This year we couldn’t get enough of the ladies from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Every Thursday night like clockwork, we sat down to watch and live blog about the show. You joined us by providing some of the most hilarious and thought-provoking comments we’ve ever seen.

And it seems we weren’t the only ones jonesing for the fierceness of Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, Nene Leakes, Lisa Wu-Hartwell and Kandi Burruss. On it’s premiere night this past season some four million viewers tuned in to see what the five Georgia peaches (and Dwight, of course) were up to, making it the highest rated premier for the “Real Housewives” franchise.
