Why is it in the age of Michelle Obama, the country has seemed to rally around the RHOA breakout start, Nene Leakes?
I think it is unfair to point out Leakes as a representative of all black women but, again, images are powerful.
Nene Leakes' character on the show is the angry black woman stereotype and to a smaller degree so is Sheree Whitfield's on air persona. I say "on air persona" and "character" because reality tv is not, in fact, real. Who in real life has producers prompting drama and cameras filming their every move?
I always search for the logic in everything? I was a ban in the side of my math teachers in grammar school. I did not want to know just how to find the answer but what was the logic behind the equation. What can I tell you, I went to public school.
Anyhoo, back to the point og the post. I love watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta. These chicas are OTT. . .and I love it.
However, I was really disappointed in their appearance of Ellen. The ladies took what could have been a transformational moment and made complete butts of themselves. . .at least Kim and Sheree did.
A little background, Kim and Sheree had a really public fight in which Sheree tugged on Kim’s wig. I guess this was Kim’s way of getting back at her by telling the world she bounces checks on Ellen.
And Sheree flips the heck out! LOL
I should not laugh but if something is not true, why argue?
I could not help thinking that all of that yelling and cursing Sheree does is a symptom of her very public and humiliating divorce. I mean your famous husband stops paying your mortgage and you get evicted. You are accused of bouncing checks, your clothing line is tanking. I think I would be a tad bit angry too.
So depression, is that logical reason for such raucous behavior.
