Can Sheree Whitfield dance? What's the relationship between a 50-cent piece and a baby's umbilical cord? Is Kim Zolciak really serious about her music?
Those questions dominated this week's episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Here's a recap of the show.
Early in the show, we get a shot of Sheree's car that I think was recently repossessed. Then, Sheree prepares for an Atlanta charity version of "Dancing with the Stars." Her mantra during rehearsal is "oops."
Never miss a local story.
While confident, Sheree doesn't exactly impress the organizers. I blame that largely on her failure to wear her dress to the dress rehearsal. She also brings her own glam team to the big night. And by "glam team," I mean her hair stylist Lawrence -- who manages to hit on Sheree's dance partner.
At the event, the other Housewives are pretty stingy with their donations. They each give $20.
Predictably, Sheree's dancing is less than impressive. Nonetheless, she manages to score a bunch of nines. It's not enough for her to win the competition, however.
The real superstar of the night? Kroy Biermann, who won the competition and found a potential love interest in Kim Zolciak. Some sources report they're en route to an engagement.
NeNe gets relatively little air time, aside from a shot of her bringing Gregg to the "Dancing with the Stars" event amid their struggling marriage. She also tells us privately how much she likes Peter, Cynthia's man.
Kim uses the profits from her yard sale to buy...more useless stuff. If there's a plus side, it's the fact that Kim devotes some of the money to her daughter's new room. Price tag? $60,000. It naturally makes Kim's older daughter, Brielle, a little jealous.
Cynthia's man, Peter, is ready to propose. NeNe helps with the the surprise. Cynthia and Peter enter room of people after a night out. Peter pops the question to a very shocked Cynthia, who's sporting sneakers and no fake eyelashes.
Her reaction doesn't scream "excitement."
"It was strange. Can we get some emotion going?" NeNe asks. Cynthia adds, "I don't really like surprises."
Cynthia looks at bridal gowns and admits she's overwhelmed by the wedding process. We learn about Cynthia's abusive stepfather and her fear of being stuck in a relationship.
Cynthia's best line in the fitting room? "I can't tell if this dress looks great on me or if I'm just making this dress look great."
Phaedra prepares for the doctors to induce labor. Remember, she claims she's still only seven months pregnant. Phaedra's pre-baby plans consist primarily of planning her wardrobe.
Also, she confuses viewers while making some vague references to a 50-cent piece and the baby's umbilical cord. Here's the best explanation I found online.
Kandi continues to work with Lawrence, also known as Sheree's hair stylist. Remember, he's an aspiring singer. Kandi confides in Lawrence and tells him Kim didn't like her new track. Kandi's surprised when Lawrence already knows that Kim hates the song.
With Kim's musical future uncertain, Lawrence succeeds with his song from Kandi: "Closet Freak."
At the "Dancing with the Stars" event, Kandi and Kim have their first conversation since the song debacle. Kim vows she's serious about her music.
