Jersey just isn't fun. Even in the first season I felt like it was a chore to watch until we got to the table flip. They have huge moments, but the day-to-day stuff is incredibly boring with them. They could've saved that show by bringing in non-related housewives around season 4, but since they never did it just is too late to save it. I'm interested in seeing their trailer whenever that comes later this year. I feel like it's going to be another boring season.
See, I don't think Katie is bringing anything out. She's always been clear on being biracial and proud of both sides. Her wearing her hair like that doesn't shock me. Even on the show she doesn't perm it, she just flatirons it so you can clearly see she is still black. I like Katie. She's dumb as a sack of rocks, but she isn't trying to hurt anybody. She's fun to watch and I look forward to seeing where future seasons would take her, especially without this current boyfriend.
I'm all for this, especially if they can get Sarah Michelle on board. NBC needs a good strong soap badly, but I echo the sentiments that I'm not confident they are the right network to pull it off. I like the idea of using some continuity with the movie and having Sarah Michelle on. If it's a hit, I'm sure they could get Reese for an episode or two. On another note, I will say, it's crazy that of all her projects this is getting a sequel series and not Buffy. I'm beyond shocked a Buffy sequel series hasn't been made with Sarah Michelle or even a straight reboot, but in the age of sequel series, you can't convince me a new Buffy on Netflix OR Network TV wouldn't be a huge hit. Genre tv is in.
Things are getting juicy!! I can't wait for next week. I wonder if Erika will own up to bringing up the thing about Bella and Anwar or will she let Rinna take all the heat. I LOVED Kathryn giving it to Kyle. She is effortless and she is right. I understand Kyle is friends with Faye, but how does she have no objectivity, especially about something so serious. We all know that book was a cash in. At the very least she could chalk it up to Faye being in a bad place and turning her life around. Trying to justify it is foolish.
I feel bad for Lisa Vanderpump (and Rinna) because I truly believe they're right, but Yolanda is so shifty that she won't be as easy as Brooks to figure out. Even Lisa letting it slip that Mohammed told her those kids weren't sick, I believe her, but even though he told her that, he's obviously going to be upset since it was told on confidence. Even his statement about it didn't say those kids were sick, it simply said family affairs are private. I can't wait to see how the reunion goes. I feel like the Lisa's will go down in flames and if Yolanda even shows up she will play brain dead (literally) and then dip out like last season. I wish they had written her off until she got "better." This story isn't even interesting and she isn't on enough to have earned that diamond. She should've been a friend popping in and out like Brandi and Kim later in the season.
If I have to hear one more comment about weaves on RHOP I will just be done. Karen and Charrisse have struggle weaves worse than Flavor of Love girls, yet they want to sit here going in on Gizelle?! They WISH they looked as good as Gizelle on her worst day. Let's start with Karen--she's married to the "Black Bill Gates," but has an outdated kitchen, old Mercedes and her weave is not only unflattering, but poorly put in and poorly dyed/styled. Girl go sit down. Charrisse--she is very homely looking to begin with, but her styling and BEYOND struggle weave just kills her. Not flattering for her face at all and it looks like a tacky weave sewed in too far back because she doesn't have edges. HORRIBLE style. At least Karen looks better in her talking heads, Charrisse still looks a mess. I expect her to have the biggest downfall this season. Her husband don't want her tired ass. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the other girls though. Robin is laid back but fun. Gizelle irritated me with the thot comments on Ashley, but she was within her rights. I mostly just wanted her to love Ashley so they could form a power team and shut out Charrisse and Karen. I LOVED Ashley. She is young and spunky, but feels fresh. Her husband was actually cute and not what I expected. I LOVED their condo. It was stunning. I look forward to more of her. Katie is a TOTAL TOTAL airhead, but she remains fun. I think she's harmless but making a fool of herself. Her boyfriend is giving me flashbacks to Bethenny and Jason 1.0 during RHONY season one. Looking forward to next week. RHOA is getting stale, but is still watchable. Next week we know will be good and probably carry the rest of the season. I enjoy Kim Fields, but that brunch was a mess. At this point and especially with a stylist, she needed a better outfit. She looked like she just got out of bed. Her hair was ATROCIOUS!!!!!!!!! The worst!!!! I usually like her hairstyles, but her own hair was a completely different color than her wig and the roots were growing in bad and it just looked awful. I can't imagine why she couldn't have done her hair similar to what Sheree had. Kenya vs Kim has me firmly on Kim's side. Cynthia is stupid for trying to include Kenya in this commercial shoot when clearly Kim is the one with the talent and time to pull it off. I love Kenya, but this fight with Kim is only making her look bad.
Wow! New York slayed them! She has impressed me so much. I truly do feel like she was the most fish out of water and nobody gave her a chance. Every blow up she's had has been due to that. I was so glad she read them for filth. I hope she survives the elimination. I bet this is going to be a juicy week.
I enjoyed RHOP and I think the second season trailer gave me enough to be hooked. Overall the cast is alright, but I definitely see some retooling season two. My initial thoughts: Gizelle - LOVE LOVE LOVE her! I didn't feel like she was trying too hard and her presence was strong. I enjoyed her. She's funny and doesn't take herself seriously. You can tell she truly does have the legacy she speaks of because she isn't stunting like the rest. She's just going to have a good time and call it a day. I loved her wig at the party, but hate that the wig strap was showing lol. Karen - She's entertaining, but she is tired as hell. Her style, her house, her HAIR she is tired. She has the worst manners and she put me firmly on Team Gizelle. How you gonna be late to a party and complain about ANYTHING? That is not proper etiquette, that is rude and tacky. Then if you gonna read someone with a gift, make sure it doesn't look like the packaging and frame came from the dollar store. She is TIRED. True new money who is always trying to front like she is so fabulous. Charisse - HATE HATE HATE! Bitch they thought you were section 8 because you are! She is TIRED TIRED TIRED! I cringed for her lack of edges and those throwback pics which made her look like the hoodrat she claims to hate so much. She is probably fronting more than all of them. I HATED her! All the talk of the ghetto was just classless. The way she treated Gizelle was unspeakable. How the hell you gonna invite her to a party, have her cook and treat her like that? She LEFT her so don't complain if she can't find stuff and is loud in the kitchen. As for her bringing a plus one, that is par the course for a casual party. Not to mention the fact that Gizelle had to rush and get ready due to having to cook. She legitimately needed help getting ready. I hope this season is a season of downfalls for this monster. Katie & Robyn - I don't have much to say about either of them, but I liked them. Katie is probably the most gorgeous woman ever cast and I like that she seems lighthearted and carefree. I feel like she will be the rational one and I look forward to that. Robyn didn't do anything major to stand out, but she was fun and I like her relationship with Gizelle. Overall more than anything I need these women to fix their weaves. After watching and seeing that it pretty much is a DC reboot, I do wish we could've gotten a DC housewife in there. I think Lynda and Stacie could've fit in as Friends at the very least.
My thing is, I don't feel Kim needed to step it up or prove anything. They took a risk and cast someone who is different from the current cast. You have to anticipate time for her to get to know the girls and get comfortable with the situation. I think she's already provided many great moments and her solo scenes are fun. Now that she knows the girls I'm not surprised things are picking up for her story. She's finally in the mix. I can't wait to see how she interacts with Nene.
I'm dead! First we get the MidSeason trailer for RHOA and it is FIRE! Nene vs Kenya. Cynthia vs Kenya. Kim vs Kenya which looks HUGE! It looks like when Nene agreed to return they extended filming which explains why they were still filming at Christmas time. I think this is going to end up as one of the top three seasons for this show. I like that they got to prove themselves without Nene and now she's back recharged and can add her dynamic to the group. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Kim Fields too. I would've never guessed her and Kenya would end up being such enemies on the show. With that said, here's the trailer: http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/season-8/videos/still-to-come-this-season-on-rhoa
Also, RHOP intro has been released and it's by far the best I've ever seen. The music, the visuals and the girls look STUNNING. Gizelle and Katie are flawless. http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/the-real-housewives-of-potomac-season-one-taglines-revealed-watch-w161736
I just can't even. I just can't do it with this show. I am going to be in my grave when this show is over. Tiffany "New York" Pollard IS Celebrity Big Brother 2016. She started off slow and they may not want to mess with her, but she IS this show!! I LIVE! Her Gemma rant damn near killed me. The only reason my heart kept beating is because I wanted to see how it ended. I LOVE HER! Megan is crazy as hell, but she was right. I need to see who is going home. I need to see what happens next. This season is becoming epic. As soon as David Bowie died as horrible as it is to think, it has kicked right off.
Here is a wonderful expose about Yolanda's lyme disease and it uncovers all the lies. I'm one who feels she has something, but not what she says and she is playing for sympathy/story as well. I hope the housewives read this and bring their receipts when they go on WHHL and the reunion. This could ruin their reputations, don't let Yolanda bring you down over her fake storyline.

The new housewife isn't introduced until after the New York trip which airs in January. She didn't start filming with the ladies until immediately after that. So episode 6 or 7 depending on if they introduce her early. With Yolanda, I can't stand her and it makes me sad the women are gonna get so much heat for being judgemental when that is all Yolanda has been since she joined the show. In addition to the instagram pictures, each season she acts like shes on deaths door in the off season and is magically well enough to film again. This year she took it a step further and it's only natural that they're suspicious. If she's so sick why the hell is she committing to a show where she has to travel, be social and under endless stress? She's full of it. I don't doubt she has something, but she is obviously playing it up. If she claims to have Lyme then what she is doing clearly isn't for Lyme disease. I'm over her.
