‘Real Housewives’ shop for bling with the gays

Add this share

Their feast on drag ding-a-ling complete, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” grabbed their sidekick queens and went shopping. And eating. And got their hair done.

Sunday's episode was one of the hit show's gayest. Miss Lawrence noshed with Kenya Moore at West & Mill Bistro in West Midtown. Derek J worked on Mama Joyce's hair at his J. Spot Salon while Atlanta Pride partier Kandi Burruss, her daughter, looked on. And Porsha Stewart hit the gayborhood with her mom to pick up a little doggie bling at the Pet Set on Piedmont. Cue a cute gay Latin store attendant who helps Porsha with her purchases.

Too bad Kenya and Miss Lawrence didn't cap their meal with a cocktail at Burkhart's. They've done it before. But at least the show seems to be moving past its homophobic outbursts.
