Seeing as how Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann got married last Friday (11/11/11), tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta could have gone either way. It could have planted seeds of doubt about the stability/authenticity of their relationship (a la Kim Kardashian), but it didn't. Instead, it made me feel all warm and fuzzy and think how lucky the couple is to have found one another. I know; I didn't expect that either.
But he's just so sweet and down-home with his Montana, gun-slinging ways; and she's just so ... Kim. Though perhaps a little off on her assessment of herself at times ("I'm sorta book smart" may perhaps be the funniest unintentional line a housewife has ever uttered), Kim is nothing if not real. Take her and her chain-smoking, wig-wearing ways or leave them, but that's who she is. Kroy is clearly taken with her, and somehow they really work together. And bonus: He prevents her from buying fur-trimmed burp cloths at Neiman Marcus.
For her 33rd birthday (which I still don't believe is her real age), Kroy threw Kim a small surprise party with all of the housewives except NeNe attending. It was sweet -- minus all the NeNe bashing -- and she also got a $22K bracelet out of the deal. Who needs Big Poppa when Kroy can bring the bling and has that ass? That doesn't mean they'll necessarily last forever (we are talking celebs here), but they seem to be starting off on a good foot that should carry them at least a little further than 72 days.
Meanwhile, there was NeNe Leakes, super duper rich NeNe Leakes that is, who is suddenly scouting out $9 million houses in Miami. She took Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss with her for a little girls' weekend, which turned out to be a REAL girls' weekend as it was lesbian pride time. That kind of thwarted their plans to land men.
So instead they played Frisbee on the beach with the only men in sight, who some might describe as "Euro Trash," and talked sex. Kandi revealed that she's interested in dipping her toes in the lesbian pool (who knew?). While NeNe has no interest in doing any dipping there (I believe she said, "I'm strictly dickly." Yes, really), nor does she have any interest in vibrators because they don't say things like "baby you so fine," they just buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Bless the Atlanta ladies, one and all.
And oh yeah, there was also Phaedra Parks and her sudden interest in the funeral business. It all seems ridiculous and staged. She says she has a calling, but it's pretty clear that call is coming from the dollar signs she sees in that business. Her prayer cloth designed to shield lustful eyes from her "luscious thighs," however, was pure genius, and she should bring that thing back and market it. She could make a pretty penny selling them to celebrities as the perfect antidote to crotch shots. Of course, that's assuming they want an antidote.
Do you think Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann make a good couple? What did you think of tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
