Shoes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion: Livin’ it up in Louboutin






The ladies of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta had part 2 of their reunion special this week, officially ending their second season.  The reunions usually make for pretty good TV, but this one seemed surprisingly low-key compared to last year.  The housewives spent much of the time downplaying the drama and there were plenty of non-answers and “next” responses to host Andy’s questions (not to mention quite a few eye rolls).  Maybe they were just trying to tone it down, but Purse Blog reports that there may have been a dispute with Bravo over a possible syndication deal for the show (and their lack of extra compensation for it), so they may have held things back intentionally.  Ok ladies, I get it – you want to get paid.  But don’t forget the viewers here.  We need answers!

But, I can’t say it was all bad.  We got a rousing rendition of Tardy for the Party performed live by Kim, which was quite entertaining.  Host Andy looked like he was genuinely enjoying it, but some of the other housewives looked amused and laughed during the performance.  Then they all played nice when asked their opinion on it afterward.  C’mon, where is Simon Cowell when you really need him?  I’d like to hear what he has to say.

I must say, I always find Dwight entertaining.  He’s all about keeping it real.

Kandi’s performance of Fly Above was definitely a high point.  I’ve enjoyed her being on the show this season and she’s obviously very talented and cool.  She also has great style, which leads me to the shoes (oh yes, the shoes).

The cameras zoomed in on the housewive’s shoes during the show and it looks like most of the cast is rocking Christian Louboutin.  The biggest standout?

The hottest pair was Kandi’s glitter Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass, listed on the official Christian Louboutin website under Total Madness.  Yep, Kandi definitely knows how to bring it on down in the shoe department. 

The glitter version doesn’t appear to be for sale anywhere right now, but you can get this similar Christian Louboutin Lace Bootie in black at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,785 or the leopard version for $1,795 at Barneys.

Of course, this is an insanely high price and I haven’t seen anything that remotely resembles the Bridget Strass, but here are two pairs that have a lacey, feminine appeal for much less:

Left: Newport News lace bootie for $49 at Newport News  Right: Bebe Bella Lace Sandal for $149 at Bebe

Update: Check out the Christian Louboutin Bridget lookalike shoe that I found for much less.

Kim wears the Christian Louboutin Contente Over The Knee Boot.  Actually, I don’t know this with complete certainty because there are lots of OTK boots out there and I didn’t get a good look at the heel or sole, but Kim does have a thing for Louboutins, so it makes sense.

Here’s a more cost-conscious over the knee boot:

Colin Stuart Over The Knee Boot for $189 at Victoria’s Secret.  Coupon code FALL09 takes $30 off, making them $159, until 11/18/09.  Other options include the Chinese Laundry Kingdom for $99 and the Nine West Iunia for $139.

NeNe wears a pair that looks similar to this Christian Louboutin Bouquet, which is $1,025 at Bergdorf Goodman (her pair was a closed-toe style).

Here’s a more affordable floral lace option:

Guess Carrielee in black multi satin for $99 at Guess or the Guess Chief in black for $109.95.

Sheree wears the Christian Louboutin Tashaf in metallic blue and silver.  It’s $955 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Want something shiny and blue for less?  Try this:

Nine West Panout for $79 at Nine West.  Or, there’s the Nine West Gouda in blue for $59.99 with an extra 30% off at checkout until 11/30/09.  Update: Here’s a metallic blue heel option, the Metallic Diamond Toe shoe at Wet Seal for $24.50. 

Lisa wears a leopard-print heel and I’m not sure if it’s Christian Louboutin.  If so, it would be something similar to (but not exactly like) this Christian Louboutin Leopard Pump for $795 at Neiman Marcus.

Here’s another leopard option

Charles by Charles David Spark for $80 at Zappos.

So, I suppose we must say goodbye to the Atlanta housewives (for now), but bring on the ladies of the OC!
