So we survived the first part
of the reunion special of Real Housewives of Atlanta
. Before we get ready for the next episode, here are some observations from the ladies who lived it. NeNe Leakes
"Wow, shots were fired!" NeNe wrote on her Bravo blog
. "The reunion was filmed for hours all in one day. From the moment I sat down I knew I would be a target, but that never bothered me. All these ladies have negatives things to say, and for some strange reason a lie sounds better than the truth."
She also tweeted
, "I wasn't built to break." And if there's one thing we've learned from four seasons of watching NeNe at the reunion shows, it's that no one should get into an argument with Miss Leakes unless they're
the ones who want to break. Kandi Burruss
"I feel crazy when people ask me about my relationship. When things are going good I don't want to mess it up," Kandi tweeted
, in response to Andy Cohen's questions about her new man.
She also had a complaint about being seated on the "tall" couch. "I did not want to sit on that couch," she tweeted
. "They had me on the wrong side. Whoever came up with the seating arrangements did me wrong." Sheree Whitfield
Sheree, who got shut down by NeNe on Sunday night, managed to make her thoughts a little clearer through Twitter after her point got lost in all of the shouting.
"The point I was trying to make on the reunion is if you are so 'rich' it would make sense to leave petty cash around the house for your kids to purchase things needed when you're not around," she tweeted
. I'm sure NeNe is taking that advice to heart as we speak... Cynthia Bailey
Cynthia weighed in on Kandi's sex toy line on her Bravo blog
saying, "I have a twelve-year-old daughter, and I do not feel comfortable discussing intimate details about my sex life publicly. Congrats to Kandi on the success of her sex toy line. I admire all smart business women!" Annnnnnnd like at the reunion, that was the one and only interesting thing she had to add. Kim Zolciak
"Kroy was a free agent and we already own two homes so we rented until we knew he was staying in Atlanta," Kim tweeted
, in response to NeNe's accusation that she and her Atlanta Falcon husband rented their dream home.
And in case you hadn't heard, Kim is really happy with her life right now. She tweeted
, "I'm so RICH in life! My heart is complete and full. I'm blessed beyond!" Marlo Hampton
Just because this pot-stirring "friend of the housewives" wasn't there for the first part of the reunion doesn't mean she won't have an opinion on what happened there.
"The Smalls had clearly been holding a lot inside," she wrote on her Bravo blog
(yes, she gets a Bravo blog: eye-roll). She then went on to express her thoughts in poem: "Though there were moments when they seemed to stand apart, in their attacks on NeNe they aligned from the start."
She also called out the Smalls' bad manners writing, "I have to say, I was shocked that anyone would try to use children as a line of attack. Isn't that bad etiquette to try to embarrass someone's child?"
I don't know, Marlo -- isn't it bad etiquette to call someone a 'whore' in these scenes from the reunion part two?
