'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 3 Reunion, Part 1 Recap

Kim, Kandi and Phaedra, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'['The Real Housewives of Atlanta' - 'Reunion Part 1']

Well, it was worth it to see dolphins swim past Andy Cohen's head at the Georgia Aquarium as he says "donkey booty." And we get a Part 2!

While Phaedra detailing the intricacies of booty types might be entertaining in and of itself, thanks to Andy for not glossing over the marriage license conspiracy. Cynthia possibly would have, especially since she was so gracious in her apprasial of the intrigue: "I know it was coming from a good place."

Even if Cynthia was able to file it away so neatly, that small revelation about the license shenanigans had to fall on small lounge-owner Peter like a ton of bricks. What a good sport: He still consented to the 'Watch What Happens Live' treatment last night.

So we don't know if NeNe and Scarlett O'Phaedra actually knew each other, but they probably knew of each other before the show. More importantly: What do we think of Kandi's spiral-fabulous new hair?

Also appreciated was the update on NeNe's troubles with Gregg and the answer that yes, she is still pursuing the divorce and they no longer live together in separate bedrooms. Even if you didn't take NeNe at her word during the show, the very distinct aroma of stale apology transmitted all too clearly from Gregg's speeches.

Considering the inevitability of the Sweetie mess being mentioned, it's a wonder why she hasn't made a guest appearance herself during the reunion. Historically, the supporting 'Housewives' characters -- i.e., husbands and sidekicks -- have been willing to get in on the fun. With Atlanta there was always Dwight. Unless, of course, she didn't want to say something she shouldn't say in front of her employer. Then again, it might be up to Kim to give consent. Who knows.

The reunion could use a little infusion of supporting voices. Kim's on-point psychic? Kroy? Peter? Phaedra's mom so everyone can communicate in "mmhms" for a few minutes? Probably not Gregg.

Anyway, stay tuned to see Kandi cry over something Kim the Artist-related? What a shame. She's really working that '80s 'Flintstones' thing!

Part 2 of the 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' reunion airs Feb. 20, 10PM ET on Bravo.

I like the RHOA because they are all so entertaining. I don't like to take sides over a lot of issues, especially where NeNe Leakes is concerned, however, I am going to go to bat for her now. First of all, I take offense at all of the haters that like to get stupid with all of the tranvestite references. God made some women TALL and some TALL and BIG..live with it!. Not all women are short..I defend because at 5'11, I have heard all of the crap from the haters. Anyway, let's talk about NeNe being a bigot.. Why is she a bigot? Just because she wanted to defend the way Kim talks to Sweetie? Watching the show, I did not appreciate it either. It just took NeNe to point it out..All the others should have said something too..But they wouldn't because they afraid of hurting Kim's feelings..And!??
I don't care what the relationship is...employee/employer/friends..Kim is very disrespectful toward Sweetie and Sweetie has such low self-esteem that she does not stand up for herself. Kim can not be paying that much that she is entitled to speak to that GROWN WOMAN in that manner. She sounds just like those white folks in the 40s and 50s that spoke to black employees in any old way. DISRESPECTFUL. Kim is delusional if she believes that she's done nothing wrong. If I were on the show, I would have checked her too and the other idiots for not speaking up. I can not wait for Part 2....KEEP IT REAL NeNe..........

Kim and NeNe have always had a shaded past but I know these two love making each other miserable. Kim has talked about everyone on the show and everyone has talked about Kim, yet she finds a way to forgive them and centralize her anger at NeNe. This season was definitely a rough one for NeNe because she is going through so many emotional battles and I know she has to centralize her anger at Kim, who is an easy target and someone she has some pinned up animosity towards. I watched the show in HD which is the best quality possible and I couldn't keep my eyes off of NeNe's or Cynthia's shoes. I work and subscribe to DISH Network and I never have to pay extra to watch my favorite shows in HD, ever and the shoes they were wearing were truly gorgeous!

thank you! i was telling my friends that. it's so interesting that Phaedra can "be cool" with all the other housewives for talking smack about her, but she has a problem with NeNe. same with Kim... amazing.

NeNe must have been talking about herself as the transvestite. I mean, really. . . does she think she looks feminine in any way? And, honey, actions speak louder than words. She lies, she's a bigot, and she wants her fame. But so far all we see her famous for is trashy, trashy, trashy. . . nasty, nasty, nasty!
