Bravo earned its most-watched night ever in network history last Sunday.

    The majority of ALL the RHO?, (Atlanta, New York, New Jersey or where-ever, take your pick) are typically, an aggregation of ill-bred, crude, uncouth, presumptuous and artificial skags. They ALL have a feeling of entitlement that I find almost, but NOT quite, as ridiculous as ALL these RHO?. All these “housewives” are as boring as they are overpaid. The funeral home owner is at the top of each and every one of these lists. The ONLY one who calls them what the really are, and the ONLY one I really enjoy, is Andy Cohen!!! Thanks, Andy!!!

    Why do you bother to watch then. You sound like a disgruntled fan. The Housewives od Atlanta are the bomb, the best. Beverly Hills HW are now ghetto housewives. They were once classy, but now Yolonda, Lisa have allowed that trailer trash Brandi, to turn them classless too. Money can't buy you Class. Brandi needs to take her gutter mouth and leave the show. Brandi's main problem is she is jealous of Joyce, because Joyce is beautiful and she is not. That other new comer may as well go too. She adds nothing to the show and she looks unclean and uncouth. Kim and Kyle are okay. The New York HW are okay. Miami and Shah's are not worth watching. Ne Ne Leakes is the Belle of the Ball. I know Sheri is green with envy. Everyone loves Ne Ne !

      I agree with you. I agree with Brandy, money can't buy class. Brandy do not have money or class. They need to get rid of her. Her vocabulary is as big as her brain. For a woman with children, she is a disgrace. Brandy IS jealous of Joyce. I am so happy that Joyce is standing up to her, unlike the others…BUT then again, I do realize why Brandy do these things…she has nothing to bring to the table. She is boring and classless. Lisa and Yolanda should be shame of themselves for encouraging such behavior. I do think that it was Lisa's responsibility to put a stop to Brandy's nonsense, when she was cussing around HER dinner table at HER guess. Instead Lisa came up with a lame excuse. Shame on you Lisa. Lost lots of respect for you.

    Which NeNe do u like? Her personality changes like the weather! She totally forgets where she came from and her holier than thou attitude..{personality number 7 or 8, I forget}…. makes me cringe. I would pity her husband but he knew that she was all about the all~mighty dollar when she kicked his a$$ to the curb the first time. He decided if you cant beat'em join'em so now her belittling, demasculating ways….he got comin. Price you pay …..still hard to watch.
    NeNe's outburst in past seasons tearin her one time best friend to shreds….all the snarky remarks about her wigs STILL, goes to show that she is jealous of others successes. She is self~absorbed and very mean spirited and it eats her alive to think that one of the other housewives may get ahead of her.
    Lastly, I sure hope she is padding her savings account because I believe sooner than later people are going to see through this newest NeNe, peacemaker…….extroidinaire! Pllleeeaaaasssse!
    And the calls are going to stop comin'.
