Entertainers of the Night

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor selects the top three moments of Episode 15.

 

Well there was certainly no shortage of comments on NeNe and Kim's epic fight last week! Good points were made on both sides, so I remain conflicted. I think the only fair way to decide a victor would be some sort of Wig-lympics -- tests of strength, stamina, and speed built around synthetic hair. And hey, curling would finally make sense!

In any event, let's jump into the penultimate episode of the season. The No. 3 moment goes to the rather bizarre house where the ladies are being hosted. I realize this isn't really a moment per se, but I was compelled to comment. I thought they were in Miami, not Transylvania… I was expecting vintage floral patterns, perhaps a Will Smith song, and of course a gorgeous lanai! Instead we were treated to a wide array taxidermy pets, frescoes of satyrs and other mythical beasts, and Kim's friend and host Thomas. Now all we learn of Thomas is that he's in the real estate business, but what I want to know is how he developed his very distinct taste for interior design. Was he perhaps mentored by Miss. Havisham? The girls are a bit put off, and I can't say I blame them. Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Atlanta anymore.

Side note, when Thomas mentioned he was neighbors with Rosie O'Donnell and Gloria Estefan, I immediately thought back to the episode of 'My Life of the D-List' when Kathy visits them both in Miami (I know, I'm scared by my encyclopedic knowledge of Bravo shows as well). I wonder if she spent any time at Casa Thomas?

The No. 2 spot goes to Lawrence's impersonations. I mean really, what can't Lawrence do? I think by far his best was Kandi. Those hand motions and intonations were especially on point. Which one did you think was Lawrence's best? 

And thank goodness Sheree invited Lawrence, because I think that was the first time anyone cracked a smile the whole time. In fact, Lawrence has been a welcome ray of high-heeled sunshine this entire season. His banter with Sheree never fails to bring a smile to my face. So here's to you Lawrence! I wonder if the first dance at Cynthia's wedding will be to 'Closet Freak.' Speaking of, you can see the live performance here. 

That whole ensemble is amazing, but the hat really stole the show. Lawrence could give Aretha Franklin a run for her money. 

And finally, the No. 1 moment goes to Cynthia's strip-tastic bachelorette party. Now first off, I love that these are Phaedra's clients. In her own words: "I represent a very diverse clientele, including entertainers of the night." So I guess Phaedra also represents the cast of 'Twilight?' I'm with Kim on this one though, why do these dancers need representation? Do they sue people who stick Sacajawea coins rather than dollar bills in their g-strings? 

You could tell Phaedra, Kim, and Sheree were into it, Kandi looked unimpressed (I suppose it's hard to top Mr. Luscious), Cynthia was a good sport, and NeNe was scandalized. It looked like margaritas and naked men were all that was necessary to bring the girls together. Never underestimate this potent combo, it's the key to saving any failing party. I know from experience. Or if you've run out of one or both, you can just play this clip for your guests. As Kim would day, it's a conversation piece.
