Not everyone can really go from flaming hot rage to conveniently calm and collected but that's just the kind of thing you can expect on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. There are no rowdy catfights or hair-pulling moments in the first part of the season 2 reunion special, which is a refreshing break from the usual Housewives reunion drama. However, these Atlanta ladies have left Bravo's Andy Cohen with (too much) information for us to mock and poke fun at.


NeNe is sporting a new hairdo and apparently a new attitude. She's now friends with Kim after that whole choking incident that left them at each other's throats during last week's Real Housewives of Atlanta finale. While all the beef have been buried (for now at least), NeNe reveals what caused the chocking incident: Kim was badmouthing her to the other housewives behind her back!


It looks like NeNe was telling the truth when she said Kim was talking trash behind her back since Kim didn't deny this, reasoning that she just got bored. Kim says a bunch of other things--- most of which are really hard to believe. But we all get a kick out of it even though some things are best left unsaid. Basically, she's not being financially supported by Big Poppa anymore since they already broke up. She even claims that she's willing to work at McDonalds, Target, and Burger King if she needs to. On the other hand, she's leaving the door open for Big Poppa just in case he gets a divorce from his wife. Oh and she also reveals that she's a 34D, likes to have sex everyday and can drink like there's no tomorrow!


Nothing much is going on with Lisa aside from her baby-making mission with husband Ed. She reveals she's having sex several times a day though she's not yet pregnant.


Sheree explains why she's always throwing herself parties and the only reason she can come up with is that she loves herself, though she is noticeably not wearing She By Sheree. Bottom line: She's not a lesbian!


Kandi is emotional as she tries to shed light on the death of her former fiance, AJ, whom she broke up with a month following her mother Joyce's reconciliation with him, which we all witnessed during finale.  Kandi recounts that the resolution wasn't enough to make things work between them. She also reveals that AJ was wrestling with his decision about buying the club, where he had an altercation with club employee Frederick Richardson, though was not aware of the reason why they fought.

All's well that ends well, right? Well, not exactly because on next week's The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion special part 2, NeNe comes to blows with Kandi!
