Atlanta is the next stage in Housewives evolution. Just when you think you know exactly what is going to happen these women shock you, finding new ways to be obscenely fabulous and downright trashy at the same time. You would normally expect a ton of clips, boring patter, and Andy smiling while asking mean-spirited viewer questions. But TMZ already broke the story of the physical altercation between Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart. As such, we don't have to wait until Part 3 of the reunion (and suffer through countless promos) before we reach the fight. These ladies give us exactly what we want when we want it.
Phaedra Parks was her normal sassy self and savvy as ever dodging questions about charges against her husband, Apollo Nida. Kandi Burruss is her normal folksy self who just got Bravo to pay for her wedding. Cynthia Bailey is as stunningly beautiful as she is boring. The other ladies seem to have gotten a makeover of psychological proportions. Kenya inspired by the success of her fan last season brought an entire bag of tricks including a scepter and bullhorn. Porsha is sassier than we've ever seen her. NeNe Leakes seems above the usual Housewife reindeer games. It's unclear if she is passive-aggressively acting disengaged or if there is another reason behind her indifference.
