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!

Happy dance! I can’t wait for our RHOA party! OMG though I just watched the trailer and that is INTENSE! I hope they put some fun in this season too and not just all fighting!
The Cubicle Chick says
Robyn, this year looks like it’s going to be crazy. I hope it’s not overkill, though. Too much drama and fighting makes for bad television.

So ready – Honey Chile now *Nene dance*
Aaaaannnnnnd I gotta say it….One of THEE best lines from RHOA: “Who gon’ check me boo?”….LOL…I chuckled as I wrote that…And “Boop” from Nene….I like the show….As you can tell….Been watching since the first season…Hell, I’ve been watching the Real Housewives franchise since Real Housewives of OC…Every. Single. Time. I’m watching Real Housewives, my fiance comes in the room and rolls his eyes…I still like Nene…Although I wish she would tone it down a bit sometimes, I still like her…Phaedra has grown on me….Considerably….The way that she carries herself…I love it….She knows how to debate/argue intelligently….If that makes sense…Love her….No matter how hype Nene or anyone else gets, she will sit there with her legs crossed, arms folded over her legs, head held up high, debate intelligently and remain calm the whole time…No yelling, cussing, jumping in people’s face, swinging on people, none of that…Just grace…Gotta love it….

I also have a love/hate feel for the show for the same reasons. It is definitely my guilty pleasure, just like Basketball Wives.
