Real Housewives of Atlanta
Full series coverage at Vulture
"Phaedra has bigger problems, because she officially lives inside Marjory, the Fraggle Rock trash heap. Kids are hell, but her house looks like it was damaged by Hurricane Sandy and then dragged back to Atlanta on the back of a flatbed truck."

"Everyone looked lovely. NeNe wore a floor-length hot pink gown and her finest lacefront, the one that makes her hair look like it is molded from plastic; Phaedra had on her best smug attitude and fake smile; Kenya was carrying a scepter and wore Gary Oldman’s battle armor from Bram Stoker’s Dracula; Cynthia wore … something, I’m sure, but can’t remember for reason of a boring nature; Porsha wore her new tits; and Kandi cosplayed as the Winter Soldier."
Season 6 Reunion Part 1, "Gloves Off"

"Porsha laments that, owing to slavery, she can’t really ever find out where she came from, but that hey, there had to be an opening for the Underground Railroad somewhere because someone was driving the train.
Someone. Was driving. The train.
PORSHA THINKS THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD WAS AN ACTUAL RAILROAD! The granddaughter of civil-rights pioneer Hosea Williams feels very connected to a history she knows nothing about.
Phaedra calmly tells Porsha that it was “a euphemism,” and Kandi repeatedly says, “It was not an actual train! It was not an actual train!” while Porsha gazes at them open-mouthed, the cogs in her brain visibly grinding to a halt and the smoke whispering out of her ears. Porsha tries to redeem herself by saying hey, she “knows one person made it.” Of course, the one person who made the Underground Railroad! Everyone knows that guy. And it wasn’t Harriet Tubman, who Porsha knows was an actual tub."
Season 6 Episode 8, "Who Drives Your Underground Railroad?"
