The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Recap: The Talls Against The Smalls

January 22, 2012 08:16 PM by Megan Thompson

Tonight on Bravo, it’s an all new episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. NeNe Leakes is on the hunt for a new sidekick, so she befriends a socialite/criminal named Marlo. While Kim Zolciak tries everything under the sun to lose the baby weight, except for exercise! Keep reading to find out all the details on tonight’s RHOA.

Since NeNe is low on friends, she thinks Marlo is the perfect choice to be her new BFF. Maybe it’s because they are both freakishly tall and have very deep man voices? After a tour of Marlo’s slick house the girls end up in Marlo’s amazing closet.

The closet is packed full of Louboutin shoes and Chanel purses! “Bitch this is absolutely ridiculous,” is how NeNe describes it! It just leaves us wondering, what did she have to do to earn all those purses? Shiver at the thought!  After sitting down to lunch, prepared by “Marlo’s staff” NeNe invites Marlo to go to Africa with the rest of the gals. Now this Africa trip just got a whole lot more interesting.

Kim tells Kroy that she only has a few more pounds to lose to get back to her pre baby weight.  God forbid Kroy actually mentions working out to Kim. “That will never happen,” Kim mocks Kroy.  Roll the montage of Kim lying on her belly, eating pizza, trying to melt the fat off her ass with a laser.  Love how opposite Kim and Kroy are in so many ways, but they are fun to watch.  Next thing we know Kim is getting wrapped up like a mummy to sweat out her last few pounds.  After 45 minutes, Kim loses 10.5 inches overall.  Don’t drink a glass of water Kim or I’m afraid it will all come right back!

The odd couple, Cynthia and Peter, are packing for her trip to Africa.  Peter thinks Kim isn’t going to Africa because there are too many black people.  Whatever Peter, Kim has a new baby.  Cynthia is thrilled to be leaving Peter for ten days, I can’t blame the girl.

Onto a happy house – Phaedra’s!  Phaedra fills Apollo in on Marlo’s criminal past.  “I typically don’t hang out with women with a long rap sheet,” Phaedra tells the cameras.  Phaedra has no clue that NeNe and Marlo are crashing the trip to Africa, so she is still looking forward to it.  Phaedra needs a break from being a mommy. 

NeNe, and her assistant Andre, meet Marlo for some power shopping. 

“Marlo is definitely a label whore like me,” NeNe brags about her friend.  Marlo says she wants to play nice with all the girls, even Kandi. NeNe knows she is stirring the pot by bringing Marlo to Africa, but she doesn’t seem to care.

The lockout is over and Kim is not happy that her man is leaving.  Kroy is heading to training camp the next day, so Kim and Kroy go out on a romantic date.  They get emotional about leaving each other.  Unfortunately for Kim, Kroy says they can’t “naughty Skype” because he has roommates. Back at home Sweetie, along with Kim’s parents, are preparing a romantic night in for the couple – roses petals and candles everywhere!  Kim gets furious when she arrives home and Sweetie isn’t finished setting up the place.  Then the most awkward part of it all is when Kim’s dad is asking if they are going to get naked in the tub – not a conversation you want to have with your dad. The next day Kroy says his goodbyes and heads to camp. ”Call me the whole way there,” Kim yells at Kroy as he pulls away. 

All the ladies are headed to the airport to catch their flight to Africa.  “I don’t know about this trip,.. I don’t want drama” Kandi tells her mom.  Go with your gut Kandi and run far away! Oh and Sheree arrives at the airport, is she still on this show?  When NeNe arrives everyone thinks it’s time to go, but wait there is one more person coming.  “Oh my God, are you kiding me?” Sheree tells the cameras when Marlo steps out of the limo.  Marlo is ready to have a “blast in the mother land.”  Phaedra sums it up best, as usual, by saying Marlo just adds “a little more spice in the gumbo.”

    Nene’s new friendship will explode in time. She won’t be able to stand sharing the spotlight w/ her new, outragious “friend.” They are too much alike–Nene loves creating unnecessary drama, she’s bitchy, mean-spirited, and actually thinks she has some kind of “talent.” Her attitude will eventually chase away everyone–she never knows when to shut up.

    What about NeNe claiming that she is rich but then asking for a refund for the $10,000 jewelry she purchased? That was funny.
