    Kim eating a bagel on her way to deliver? With suspected pre-eclampsia? Have things changed that much in the 18 years since I've been in a L/D room?

    I did a Google search of Bar One. From the reviews I read apparently Bar One has a time limit a customer can sit at their table. A restaurant has to make so X amount/table/day in order to be profitable. I have never had a resturant tell me that I was taking too long to finish my meal.

    If Bar One is not allowing customers to linger over coffee & dessert this is probably a good sign the restaurant is struggling to make money.

    I heard that it is Sheree's mother who has put up the money for the new house.

    Nene and her "date" John. He was so creepy...and so was she. It came across totally fake.

    I don't think Cynthia and Peter are going to last.

    I always wondered whether Phaedra wears skin-tight suits and clown makeup in court. Judging by tonight's preview, she knows how to clean herself up for court. She looks fantastic in her french twist, earth-tone makeup and Sarah Palin glasses. It's definitely a make-under that improves her appearance.

    I hope someone tells Phaedra that she looks gorgeous when less makeup is more. Her usual lipstick and eyeshadow drives me bananas!

    I didn't know that Bar One was a restaurant. I thought it was just a club with beverages. I must not be paying close enough attention.

    I don't see Cynthia and Peter lasting, either. I think she likes the idea/fantasy of being married, but the reality is, sometimes, its just too real! She seems like she's willing to "settle", just to be able to say that she is married.

    About Kim (I find her whining azz hard to tolerate) and the bagel...I thought that she was counting on just being on the way to the doctor for evaluation, but she DID pack her bags, didn't she? That is strange for a, supposed, nurse. Maybe I am out of the loop, too.

    I also dont see Peter and Cynthia lasting, but I hope they surprise me.
    I think when Phaedra is all "dolled up" for her interviews her make up makes her eyes look like she is high, I too liked her daytime look.
    Im sorry but I had to change the channel during the NeNe date, I sensed she really wasnt that interested anyway but didnt want to hurt any future "financial opportunities"
    I used to not be able to tolerate Kim, but I think Kroy has helped even her out a bit. I was also a little iffy about him at first but have grown to like him. I got the impression that Kim wasnt sure they were going to send her to the hospital, that they may just send her home, she was packing her bags just in case the Dr sent them to the hospital.

    She also made sure she had her wig and her wighead with her. She is just gross! Him, I like and wish well.

    I had to roll my eyes when the nurse asked if she smoked and she said, "No." That should have been "No," with an explanation of her pre-pregnancy addiction; her doctor shoud be aware of that, anyway, if she's been truthful. Gross, gross, gross.

    And, why does a nurse call her son's penis a "wee-wee" or a "pee-pee"?

    I do not believe Phaedra was outsmarted by Sheree's ex ... that's all the court is for some people, a way to keep things going for years and years and never own up to anything. How could she be outsmarted when she wasn't given the full story by her own client??

    Tired and disgusted by the Kandi sex toys storyline, tired of Nene altogether, and of Cynthia and Peter as well. Ship them all off to NYC where Cynthia can be happy at least.

    Having just had a new grandson (4 mos), w/the exact same type of going to the hospital w/plans to induce birth, pre-emclampsia also, she shouldn't have been eating. My daughter wasn't even allowed clear liquids altho I snuck her some ice chips.
    And in the next scene in the car, Kim told Kroy to stop talking and let her eat her doughnut...but it sure looked like a bagel.

    I, too, was impressed with Phadra's apparence in court. I now can believe in her abilities in being an attorney. Although I must say, I had those glasses years before Sarah Palin had them. They are definitely great looking specs!

    He was definitely creepy and maybe it's just me, but what the heck does he see in NeNe?? I don't get it at all. I see nothing attractive about her.

    I have doubted that this marriage between Cynthia and Peter will last since they got married...actually, even before they got married. It's really sad to me that someone who has so much going for her, chooses a controlling disagreeable man.

    Re: The Real Housewives of Atlanta

    Whoa new episode last night, and then a supersized epi on Sunday. Anyone catching these?

    Sherre goes to court. Kim comes home with the baby. Kandee reveals TMI on her show. Not too much Nene (YES) or Cynthia.

    One thing about Kim's daughters..they look so much like her. The oldest especially has a whole copy mom vibe going. I just don't like that. I have always wanted my kids to be completely different from me-to discover their own pathways in life and that is what they are doing. And Kim is so much in your face/tacky about the things she talks about...her boobs/her sons peepee etc. It sounds as if she got some of that from her own Dad.
