After last week's emotionally driven episode, I'm looking forward to some laughs on tonight's The Real Housewives of Atlanta courtesy of NeNe Leakes. I think she's the funniest among the Atlanta Housewives. She makes her jokes most of the time on Kim Zolciak's expense, which makes her even more hilarious.
But the comedy begins with Kim as she gets a little more serious about her wig line. She's determined to make some money out of it but decides to test the waters first by letting her friends try it out. And what better way to entice them than to throw a party. You can't be tardy for the party, right? OK so maybe it's a lame reference but Kim has thrown so many parties that it's already something you'd expect on each episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. This time, however, the joke's on Kim as NeNe goes a little overboard.
Kim's party has all the usual elements: Wine? Check! Kim's girl friends? Check! More wine? Check! Kim's gay African-American friend on extremely high heels? Check! An assortment of wigs? Check! While this party is clearly for her wig business, Kim's gigantic breasts are the first thing you'd notice as you step into her house. She's wearing one of those dresses where her melons are about to pop out so I wouldn't blame you if you have trouble staring at anything else.
NeNe's arrival, the moment I'm looking forward to, gets Kim all excited. She even tries a new wig (slightly shorter than NeNe's hair) ---which NeNe absolutely loves! NeNe doubts that Kim is really serious about her wig business but she plays along and even tries a wig on (something similar to Kim's long wavy hair). And then suddenly, we see Kim coming out of NeNe's skin. NeNe starts imitating Kim, which starts out funny. Everybody in the room seems to enjoy NeNe's little show but it gets to a point where NeNe teases Kim for being a whore and the room gets really really quite. I can just imagine Kim rolling her eyes while she sips her wine. Can you say awkward?
Other things to watch out for on tonight's episode: The debut of Lisa's clothing line Closet Freak, Sheree finding out that her "She By Sheree" fashion line debut will have to wait yet again, and Kandi calling in a favor to flip "Tardy for the Party" into a song for Kim and NeNe to record.
