From Kandi's breakdown to NeNe's return to Glee to Patti Stanger's new jewelry line, there were plenty of Bravo happenings this week. Read on for all the news, clips and gossip you might have missed.

Kandi Burruss Breaks Down on WWHL

Kandi Burruss's ongoing struggle with her mother over her engagement to Todd came to a head this week on Watch What Happens Live. In an emotional statement, Kandi said that despite the problems she's had with her mom, she still feels that it is her responsibility as her daughter to "make sure [my mom's] good. She made sure I was good growing up," Kandi said through tears. "I don't care if she doesn't like my relationship. That's my mom."

Kenya Speaks Out

Brandi Glanville angered a lot of people this week after chiding Joyce Giraud for not getting in the pool, saying "You're a black person...all my black friends can't swim." The joke didn't appeal to Joyce, and it apparently didn't sit well with Kenya Moore either. "Brandi cannot be more ignorant," Kenya tweeted.

Mariah Carey to Visit WWHL

Musical legend Mariah Carey will grace the Watch What Happens Live stage this month! The pop superstar will sit down with Andy Cohen on December 22, and we can't wait. Now the question remains: will she Plead the Fifth? Will there be shotskis involved? Tune in next Sunday at 11/10c to find out.

Wendy Williams Calls Lisa Vanderpump a "Mean Girl"

As if Wendy Williams hasn't stirred up enough trouble, she's now weighing in on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards guested on The Wendy Williams Show this week, where Wendy dubbed Lisa Vanderpump the show's "original mean girl." Wendy made the comment after Kyle spoke about the tension between her and Lisa, saying, "It's been rough."

NeNe Leakes Will Tell All

NeNe Leakes is certainly not one to mince words, and she will soon be baring all to E!'s Giuliana Rancic. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is sitting down with Rancic for an hour-long interview special, where she'll open up about her difficult childhood, stardom, her past as an exotic dancer, and much more. "I feel like strength comes from within," Leakes said. "I've been through so many things in my life and those things have taught me."

Of all HW'S Kandi behaves like a civil human being! Sadly her mother behaves just like the majority of loony HW'S.. Vicki, Tamra, Ramona, Drunk Brandi, Kenya. That's just some of the loony's!

I just saw the wedding dress episode, and my heart absolutely broke for Kandi.  Kandi seems like such a lovely person, but her mother acted like an ignorant fool and completely instigated the argument with her friend.  The friend stayed calm, did not stand up and did not add fuel to the fire.  Watching Mama Joyce onscreen, it made me concerned because she literally came across as mentally unstable.  Joyce has come across more reasonable in the past, but she was unglued in a completely tacky, ghetto way.
