The last time that we had a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” episode, it was two weeks ago, and we had what was one of the worst physical fights that we’ve seen on any version of the Bravo franchise. It was ugly, inappropriate, and a really horrible reflection on what really happens at pajama parties.
Was there some improvement at times during this episode? Both yes and no. Let’s start with the good news here: At least some people decided that they were going to take a little bit of responsibility for what happened, with Phaedra Parks and also some of the other guys really expressing their disappointment about the whole thing. That’s at least some progress, especially since Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida was a far worse player in this than she was.
Meanwhile, you also had Kenya Moore and NeNe Leakes, and neither one of them really wanted to accept much responsibility for anything. The truth of the matter here is this: There are so many people to blame here for what happened. NeNe’s behavior wasn’t the best, and Kenya further helped to escalate things. The guys then all got physical, and at that point there was almost nothing else that could be done to really slow things down. Things escalated quickly.
The one thing that that we are optimistic about is that the end of the episode to us at least really suggested that we could be able to move on … with the emphasis there on “could.” Unfortunately, we also feel like this is going to be completely rehashed and regurgitated for the rest of the season. We’re not down for that at all, especially when it comes to the reunion stage. Grade: D.
