I love this show. I wish Canada would start airing Atlanta & New Jersey. We've only gotten OC & New York.

Finally watched it early this morning.

Damn Sheree and her part planner were crazaay! I'm assuming that we didn't see all that went down between the two and that's how things got so heated, so fast.

NeNe and Dwight had me rollin' on the floor w/ that first segment. HILARIOUS!!

The preview for the rest of the season looks good too. Can't wait!

Atlanta Housewife's Fiancé Killed After Strip Club Brawl

http://www.wsbtv.com/news/21188904/detail.html

ATLANTA -- Kandi Burruss, the newest cast member of the hit reality show, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is coping with the tragic death of her fiancé, Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, who appeared regularly on the show.

Burruss' publicist, Lisa Nelson, confirmed to WSBTV.com reporter Brian Johnson that the incident has left the Atlanta "housewife" stunned and speechless.

Nelson, who represented Burruss during the taping of the show, said the family is asking for privacy during this very difficult time.

Burruss, an award-winning singer-songwriter and former member of the ’90s R&B group Xscape, has had numerous disagreements with her mother on the show regarding her relationship with Jewell.

Atlanta police told Channel 2 Action News that Jewell received a severe head injury during a fight at The Body Tap Club in the 1200 block of Marietta Boulevard in Atlanta.

"It appears he was involved in an altercation in the parking lot and he received a severe blow to the head," said Atlanta Police Lt. Keith Meadows.

Meadows said Jewell was taken to Piedmont Hospital where he later died.

Police said they have not determined a motive for the brawl, but the investigation is still under way.

"We have developed a person of interest and we've made contact with him to question him about the incident," said Meadows.

Anyone watching this season? I really like how the dynamics have changed between the ladies. Just from that first episode, Alex doesn't seem as eccentric as she has in the past two seasons. I feel bad for Bethenny being pushed to the side, but I don't think she minds not being in Jill's inner-circle anymore. I think I actually like Jill and LuAnn becoming friends with Kelly. I do like Kelly. She's out there, but so what. And then you have Ramona. She's just a mess.

Bump for RHONY discussion.

Too bad we didn't get to watch Jill and Bethenny's feud from the very beginning since it happened in the off season. I think Alex is on her last season it seems like.

And it turns out Ramona was right about Jill liking the underdog. Her new haircut looks GREAT btw.

Yeah, I heard rumors that this will be Alex's last season. As a result, there are also rumors that she and Simon staged a lot of drama this season to keep them on the show. :eyeroll:

Drew, how can you like Kelly?

She's just so horrible and vapid and fake. There's just no substance to her.

I know. LOL! I hated her last season. But something about her, I feel has changed. Perhaps it's just the first episode and as more episodes air, I'll see the Kelly we're used to. But until then, I like her much better this season so far.

I too have watched from the beginning- all seasons of this guilty pleasure!

I just saw on popeater that they have 2 new housewives for NYC? As for the first start of this season, I think Jill is going to be the "baddie" and all the other ladies are going to take turns sharing their "I hate Jill," moments. Ramona is wacko- but I love her!

I also watch Andy Cohen as his little show that airs after the second repeat, , "Watch What Happens," its live and he gets the funniest guests!

Jill has been so AWFUL this season I don't think she has any fans left. It's funny how it just gets worse and worse. Now she got busted for posting positive reviews of her own book under a fake name on Amazon and then denying it, plus she's been threatening and calling anti-Semitic reviewers that don't like her book.

LOL @ Jill writing her reviews. Andy Cohen mentioned it again when he was talking to Bethenny. He also made fun of her plugging her book on his show last week. It was a funny clip!

This season is rocking. Between Ramona and her crazy eyes (LOVE HER!) and the friendship that ate Manhattan, its been great! Jill is such an unforgiving person and she looks like a total ass with her new BFF Luann. OMG....I cant wait for that tacky song! I'm liking Alex and Simon too. You sometimes need a less dramatic couple to play off the drama like Alex is being towards Bethenny.

Kelly is Kelly, but I cannot stop looking at her freakishly broad shoulders! She was right when she said the cut of her dress in the fashion show made her look like a linebacker!

Sonja's s real cougar....but I'm thinking she'll be the new Alex if they get rid of Alex and Simon.

I think Bethenny is getting her own show too?

I don't watch WWHL for the simple fact that I really can't stand Andy Cohen. He is just horrible at interviewing and not to mention the reunions and I wish they would get someone else to do. However, since he seems to be running the show, literally, that ain't gonna happen. All that being said, I wished I had watched because Review gate is off the chain. I would hazard a guess that that discussion is what shut down TWOP on Wednesday. I miss reading all the snark and comments on that board the day after the show airs.

I am torn between Jill vs. Bethanny. I am not on either ones side really. They are both sorta heinous in their own way, it is just that Bethanny has a better TV personality, is more self aware and media savvy unlike Jill who is like a bull in a china shop and none to bright to boot. I have never been on Team Jill because I always saw her for what she was from Season 1 - a materialistic, petty, score keeping busy body with way too much time on her hands. That scene in Season 1 when Bobby took her to a restaurant for their anniversary and gave her a gag gift of lingerie, which wasn't the watch she told him to get for told me all I needed to know, which was again later reaffirmed when Bobby gave her a car for her B-Day in Season 2 to which she started bitching and whining about because it didn't appear to be compatible with her I-phone. Bitch!

Bethanny with her fast talking, 90s catch phrases and acerbic tongue can be very, very trying. Rumor does have it that she is getting a wedding special and then getting her own show. Alex and Simon are rumored to be the Fred & Ethel to her and her new hubby's Ricky & Lucy. In other words, Silex are leaving the RHONY and going to follow Beth to her new show.

I think the new show and Beth's growing success is the crux of the problem between Beth and Jill, not Bobby's illness. Jill is pea green with envy. It does sadden me because I think a Jill/Beth show would be great. I can't see myself tuning in to see Beth and Jason call each other baby, have and raise a baby and interact with Silex. Just no.

This episode was a bit of a snooze but I still like it. We own a duplex loft condo downtown and even I get shocked at the rent something like that can command so it was fun seeing the Countess come downtown and check out the rentals available. I am curious as to why she just doesn't buy though. I even like the scene with Jill on the bed with her sister, who I like and that dragon of a mother of hers was even tolerable although WTF did Gloria mean by wearing crinoline on Christmas with regards to wedding dresses. Was that a senior moment? Nice moment between crazy eyes and her daughter. The scenes of Ginger shitting all over the living room because the vet was there I really didn't need to see.

I am really kinda liking the new addition Sonja. She just seems really self possessed and owns who she is. I think she would be so much more attractive if she fixed her teeth. Luann is so naturally pretty and elegant and I find everything she wears so tasteful and suited to her frame. If she would dropped the pretension with the countess bullshit, the subtle digs, let her hair down and call herself LuLu she would be may favorite.

Andy Cohen is a bit much. I personally enjoy him but I can see why others don't. But if you get a chance to catch the repeat of WWHL it's worth it. Bethenny looks so weird pregnant, but there were also random moments where NPH and Mark Consuelos showed up during the taping and were brought out on camera. I think Amazon-gate is 100 percent why they shut down the board. TWOP can be good for snark from time to time, but the micro-managing of the discussions by the mods there take a lot of the fun out of it. I don't know if you have ever posted at Sucks (survivorsucks.com) but they mostly satisfy my RHONYC snarking needs AND they were on top of the Amazon-gate scandal from the get-go.

Jill was materialistic in prior seasons and that was unfortunate, but it seemed like either in terms of how she was acting or in terms of the editing she was just less nasty in general than she has been this year. I don't know if it's a symptom of her fight with Bethenny and/or spending all her time with the countess that she suddenly thinks she's too good for the other housewives or she always felt that way and this year it's just coming out more (I'm thinking of the cattyness toward Ramona and Alex at the Brooklyn Fashion Show, for example) or maybe having B around as a sidekick to add levity took a lot of edge off her nastiness?

I enjoy B's talking/commentary style but I am not 100 percent on Team B because Kelly (I can't believe I'm saying this!) had a good point when B was bitching about Jill trying to freeze her out with the other housewives yet B did practically the same thing to Kelly the previous season. Also a lot of the things she throws at Jill about press-mongering and what have you apply to B as well. I'll tune in to her new show at the start to check it out but I agree it will be hard to see how Beth, Jason and Silex bring all that much drama.

LOL. Ramona's eyes were so freaky in that talk when she was pressuring her daughter with her crazy stare to get her to be her bride's maid. And maybe Luann had a prenup so all she got is their house in the Hamptons and child support in the divorce?

Sonja adds a vixen to the mix of the NYC housewives and it's definitely something sorely needed. I think she also could be a great OC Tamra-style bitch. I don't know if Luann and Kelly just like to pretend they are so sexless because they have kids on the show or because they are prudes, but it kind of makes them boring to me.

I have never heard of that site. Thanks, I am going to check it out. I am dying for some good old fashion snark right now.

True. I've actually seen Kelly out and about for years at various places and she really is a space cadet. She is one of those bubble people. An attractive person who has gotten whatever they want in life. Thus, she lives in a bubble, protected from harsh reality and the horrors of the world. She's harmless but can be frustratingly stupid and vapid at times. She remembers my husband, but always draws a blank with me, so yeah.... :blink:

Luann plays sexless on TV but I know, know, know that Luann has been hoeing it up for years - while married. Maybe hoeing is a little harsh, but the part she is playing as the faithful wife blind-sided by husband's infidelity isn't ringing true. I can't say whether her and her former husband had an open marriage or not, but I personally know of 2 dudes she has been with. One a really handsome young (at the time) former Euro model who I used to work with back in my heyday, the other a financial "workout" specialist for a big time Wall Street firm. I still kinda dig the countess, I just wish she would drop the act.

IMHO, I think it is the latter.
