Well, the generally unremarkable fourth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta came to an end last night, and like many of the other seasons (except for the first), it just barely lurched over the finish line. More so than any of the other casts, the Atlanta crew always starts strong — full of bluster and screaming — and mellows out into a series of uninspired scenarios. This season saw the strange rise of Black Baby Gate, a scandal so dumb it was almost briliant, but aside from that, we had no major drama. NeNe was still mad at Kim; NeNe was mad at Shereé again; Cynthia was mad at her sister — it was all pretty dull, save for a few unbelievable fights (Marlo vs. Sherayay anyone?).
Black Baby Gate is the gift that keeps on giving, except it’s one of those gifts that no one really wants — like some cheap vase from World Market. Still, the BBG was in full force on Sunday’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, with Kim interacting with Cynthia since the whole mess first began. Maybe it’s me, but I can’t help thinking that Kim is milking this stupid situation. Kandi told her umpteen times that it was all benign, but Kim never backed away from a chance to make drama. Maybe that’s why it was also surprising that Sweetie finally got canned but off camera. You’d think Kim would relish the chance to waggle her finger at her underling in front of the nation.

Ladies and gentlemen: The Zolciak has spawned again. Yes, Kim gave birth to her baby boy KJ on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but despite the high drama that accompanies such activities, I couldn’t help but think this latest installment was a snoozefest. I literally dozed off at one point, which may have less to do with the show and more to do with the fact that I had been in Vegas earlier in the day, but still, I like to think these ladies could keep me awake regardless of my exhausted state.
This just in from the Real Housewives of Atlanta rumor mill. It’s a gossipy item featuring love, lust, jealousy, and text messages.
Here’s the story, fresh from our very own Jennifer#####, who writes:
This morning I had a flat tire, and the roadside assistance guy told me a great story. Last night they were called to the house of Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann. She had locked her keys in her car. They were filming for RHOA.
After the keys were retrieved and the guys left, kim texted my dude’s co-worker saying thank you. He responded, “you’re welcome, it was a pleasure to meet you.” She then forwarded the message to Kroy, but added on the line “and you are so beautiful.” Kroy got the message and went ballistic. He has called the service company trying to get the guy fired. And Kim is just letting this happen! They were going to her house this afternoon to confront her and make her show them the real text message she received.
This has the makings of a Law and Order episode.
Dunh dunh DUNH. Now, this is all based on the yarn that this service man told Jennifer#####, but I like to think that rumor is fact, and as far as Kim Zolciak shenanigans go, this sounds right up her alley. Right?
What do you all think? Did Kim instigate a love triangle? And is Kroy perhaps WIGGING out (get it?) a bit too much?
After a joyfully delirious season featuring some of the funniest moments of the franchise, The Real Housewives of Atlanta ended on a positively boring note this past Sunday. Not only did Bravo criminally draw out this final episode into ninety unnecessary minutes, but everything focused on arguably the most boring couple on the show: Peter and Cynthia. Now don’t get me wrong: I actually like Cynthia and find her stories to be somewhat more interesting than everyone else does, but that being said, the woman just cannot anchor a ninety minute season finale. Total snoozeville.
Even worse was this contrived drama about whether she would or wouldn’t leave her man at the alter. Spoiler alert: there were already spoiler alerts that they done got married last summer. No suspense here. Furthermore, while I did find Cynthia’s crumbling financial situation in the face of her extravagant wedding to be fascinating, I didn’t for one moment think it wasn’t going to happen. I mean, when you’ve got a dinosaur skeleton ready to serve as your hupa, you’re not canceling that shit.
