The Real Housewives of Atlanta 4.12 Review - Marlo, Marlo, Marlo!

There are many ways to approach dissecting last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I'm going to tackle it by using 'The Marlo Factor,' aka 'the Marlo Variable.' But first a very quick recap for those unfortunate ones who didn't see the episode.

The show started off with the women arriving in Cape Town, South Africa and being highly annoyed with Marlo not only being loud as hell, but also for giving them ettiquette lessons which is like Sheree giving someone financial advice. Anyway, the atmosphere went from cordial to 'man your positions' when Sheree announced that she was invited to a dinner party by a friend and was taking only Kandi and Phaedra with her. While NeNe and Cynthia sort of suspected this, Marlo is appalled that she has been left out the festivities, despite not even being invited to the trip in the first place. Later the women had a 'put your issues' on the table moment (also instigated by Marlo) where they all came to the agreement to be cordial to each other for the rest of the trip. However, later that night the fragile truce was annihilated once Sheree decided to invite Cynthia to her dinner party and not NeNe and Marlo. Cynthia relayed the message to Marlo and NeNe, but didn't expect for Marlo to go H.A.M. on Sheree immediately afterwards. So for the last fifteen minutes of the episode, Marlo and Sheree went at each other with one-liners involving 80-year old men and repo'd Aston Martins. But in the midst of the "gibberish," which was what Phaedra correctly termed it as, Marlo let the 'F-word' that rhymes with 'maggot' fly out of her mouth. So despite holding her own with Sheree, Marlo lost a lot of cool points with people for that comeback line. Read More...
