'Real Housewives of Atlanta': Reunited and it feels so good?

Atlanta reunion

Our favorite (or favorite to watch, at least) housewives of Atlanta were back -- wigs and all -- for Thursday night’s highly anticipated reunion special.

Here’s the Cliffs Notes version of the gathering: Kandi got teary over A.J.’s death. Sheree admitted she loves herself and makes no apologies for the countless soirees she throws to feed that love. Lisa and Ed are still not pregnant -- but they love practicing. NeNe got a new wig. Kim needs to look up "mistress" in the dictionary.

But for a show brimming with drama and headache-inducing narcissism, the reunion special was relatively tame. ...

Maybe that’s because Kim and NeNe “reconciled"? Too weird to be true. After the infamous choking incident, I’m supposed to believe the two are just peachy? Please. Where was the name-calling? The shouting? The drama?! Host Andy Cohen -- though he tried -- was unable to get an answer. I mean, NeNe declared she’d rather pluck out each of her toenails than be friends with Kim. File under "Suspicious."

Here is a sampling of other notable moments:

-- Lisa wore a dress from her line Closet Freak -- not surprising, considering the way she danced around the question regarding reports that her home went through foreclosure. What did Sheree wear? Dolce & Gabbana. Tsk. Tsk.

-- Kandi spoke about A.J.’s death. She revealed they broke up in June, and though we saw him reconciling with her disapproving mother in the season finale, the peace didn’t last too long.

-- Sheree thinks "everyone" loved the oversize portrait of herself that she commissioned.  

-- Kim still contends that she is 31 -- riiighhht. And she claims she and Big Poppa are no longer an item. ... Yet, he showed up during a commercial break.

In next week’s continuation of the reunion special, Kim takes the stage to sing “Tardy for the Party" (oh, the horror!), NeNe and Kandi get heated, and Dwight shows up. 

What did you think, Show Trackers? Were you underwhelmed by this reunion special? Do you think Kim and NeNe have really patched things up?

That was a snooze fest. It felt like 2 hrs. First it seemed as though Kim was lying on 3 occasions: 1.) when talking about her financial situation with Big Poppa, 2.) discussing her "illness", and 3.) break-up to make-up with NeNe. I still like her and her scandalous ways.

Sheree is so superficial and fake that when she speaks, I zone out...nothing she said is worth discussing. She never completes a sentence.

Nene...not sure what her problem was. Since when did she become a wet blanket? Where's the drama Nene? Its the only thing that keeps you on the show. Nene's new attitude and that weird accent she developed this season left me scratching my head. Bring the old Nene back. We loved her.

Lisa...kinda fake. Kinda boring. The scene where she talked about making "babie-S" made my skin crawl for some reason. She never seems comfortable on her portions of the show. All she does it repeat what everyone else says right after they say it...strange.

Kandi... so sorry for her loss. She never came off as if she was putting on airs. I don't think she should come back next season though. She can "Fly above"...she doesn't belong in the gutter the other women call life.
