I LOVE my fair portion of trash reality television, and Real Housewives of Atlanta definitely does not miss the plate. This season thus far has been an interesting one with Porsha’s divorce, Mama Joyce’s hatred for Todd, and whether or not Kenya actually did offer to “suck Apollo’s wee-wee”. I wish I was making some of this shit up.
On one of the more recent episodes cast member Nene Leakes brought along one of her friends Mynique to a group gathering where she was later then schooled on the fundamentals of throwing shade and reading.
No, not that kind of reading.
- Shade: acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone a.k.a “throwing shade”.
- Read: To tell someone about themself, as in “Don’t do it bitch, I will read your ass”.
Shade throwing and serving a good read–you either know it or you don’t. Personally it’s not something that can be taught, especially in the span of a few minutes and then be put up against almost the entire cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta–because chances are you won’t be ready.
However, let’s get with the Gawds and break this all down: Get your glasses handy because the library is officially open, honey chile.
