I have a love/hate relationship with the Real Housewives of Atlanta. On one hand, I love the drama and comedy that ensues when the girls get together. It is a very entertaining show and perhaps is my favorite of all of the Real Housewives shows. On the other hand, the same drama that occurs makes it sometimes hard to watch, and I find myself shaking my head at the train wreck that seems to happen on each episode. I must admit—I have missed the ladies of RHOA and I am very excited that the new season is almost here.
I didn’t start watching RHOA until the second season, and it’s because of Twitter that I even watched it in the first place. All of the tweets and show recaps made me want to check out the show and see what it was all about. And now that it is going into it’s fourth season, I am looking forward to seeing what NeNe, Kim, Sheree, Phaedra, Kandi, and Cynthia have been up to (new edition Marlo Hampton, I hear, will only be seen in a few shows and hasn’t been officially added to the cast).
As a Black woman, I am constantly reminded that shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta doesn’t always show us in the best of light, and we are sometimes pegged negatively, either due to the editing process or antics resulting from the cast members’ “delusions of grandeur”. But I also understand that the show is for entertainment purposes only, and doesn’t in any way mean that we behave in the way these women act on the show.
I am sure we are in store for a lot this season. According to the trailer, Phaedra is getting into the funeral home business, NeNe is moving on from her “separation from Greg”, Kandi is expanding her moguldom with a sex toy line, Cynthia is getting adjusted to married life, Kim is a new mom, and Sheree, well, I have no idea, but I am sure she plans to bring it during the season.
The new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres on Sunday, November 6th on Bravo. I am planning a Season Premiere watch party with my friend, Robyn, who also loves the show!
