The Real Housewives of Atlanta has had its fair share of dramatic parties, but the one above seems to take the cakes. Why? There are zombies involved…for some reason. Sure, some of their past relationships, friendship faux pas and drama often comes back from the dead, but these are "real," undead folks crashing one glamorous party in the promo above.

Just plain uncouth," NeNe tells the zombies (yes that is a real sentence). "Y'all are dead to me!" Regardless of why this is happening (seriously, »

Here’s a rundown of all the times Trump, 71, pulled from Cohen’s “Housewives Playbook.”
