The BAM! Squad

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor selects the top three moments of Episode 16.

Feb 1, 20110

My apologies for the delay, Atlantimals! I was sidetracked yesterday by an inpromptu interview with the incredibly sweet Yigit Pura of Top Chef: Just Desserts fame. My subsequent sugar high left me too distracted to focus (poor excuse, I know, but true nonetheless). 

Well it's been quite a season. We've  met new friends, new wigs, and new enemies. We've learned that the ring didn't mean a thing, what a stunt queen is, and that you can eat pizza and lose weight through the miracle of science. We've experienced the magic of photo shoots involving pickles. Most importantly, the Atlanta Housewives have kept us laughing all season.

Before we jump into the finale spectacular, a quick shout out to commenter RRH, who pointed out that Kathy Griffin did indeed look at Thomas' house when she was in Miami for My Life on the D-List. I thought that was the case, but I wasn't positive, so thank you for confirming my suspicions!

The No. 3 moment goes to Cynthia and Peter's wedding. Now there is just so much to comment on, that I don't know where to begin. How about when Kim brought her own white wine to the wedding? She truly is the definition of a girl scout -- always prepared. And then there was the whole marriage license debacle with Cynthia's mother and sister. I'm with Andy on this one, that is just straight out of a telenovela. Family members are supposed to make disapproving faces and talk behind your back about how they think you're making a mistake, not forcefully try and stop your impending nuptials. Why was Peter drunk right before the ceremony? First off, that's supposed to happen after the vows, and second, if the guys from The Hangover could get it together before the wedding, so should Peter. 

But in the words of Michelle Williams, "After all of the darkness and sadness, soon comes happiness." The wedding came together, Cynthia didn't have to throw on her Runaway Bride emergency getaway sneakers, and everyone had a good time. You can check out all the photos from the big day in our wedding album gallery. This one was my favorites:

That show would be nothing without NeNe. She is about the only real female on the show. Just because she stand up for herself and don't let them other chicks run over her don't mean she ghetto.

UGH I SO HATE THt everyone is against my girl NeNe she is REAL and thats what she has been from day one. dont get me wrong i like all the women but NeNe is always the one to say things others are feeling and what is on her mind. we need more like her. the others say stuff when they are all together butwhen confronted its made like NeNe was the only one talking. without her this show would not and wont last

IT IS TIME FOR SOME REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA WITH HUSBANDS AT HOME WITH THEIR WIVES. NENE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, SHE IS TO GHETTO.IT IS NICE THAT MR.TRUMP INCLUDED HER IN HIS SHOW I GUESS HE WANTS TO PUT SOME CLASS IN HER ASS, BUT IT IS TIME FOR HER TO BE FIRED FROM THE C.A AND BRAVO A.H.

The reunion show parts 1 and 2 were very boring. Why is Phaedra trying to make Ne-ne know her? If she doesn't know you Phaedra or wants to know you, keep it moving. You act like if Ne-ne admits she knows you, your life would be much better.

Kim is a crazy opportunist. Kandi, leave that opportunist alone. She used Ne-ne to hype up Tardy 4 the Party in season 1 and then when Kandi made it a super hit, she ditched Ne-ne. Big Poppa can call Sweetie Black B's and it's ok, but if Ne-ne is offended by it, everyone has a problem with it.

Sheree had no purpose this season. I'm with Ne-ne, let someone else argue on Season 4 and get the 3 mil+ viewers that ATL franchise has been getting. If Ne-ne comes back, she should be humble pie and I want to see who's going to be called the jealous, angry, evil bully then.

Just call it like it is! Nene got on a bus that was already in KAOS. Kandi just set there and allowed it to escalate. Again, I say it was her bus. If you are driving you car and someone is riding in it and keeping a bunch of crap, you turn that sucker around and take them back home. Let them get there the best way they can. I refuse to allow anyone to still my joy. Life is too short, to not have some joy. Stop all that backbiting and lying that goes on. Did y'all see Phaedra make a fool of herself by still trying to lie after the doctor told her she was full -term? Now, who does that. You've been busted, big-time, so just stop it! The tele does not lie, we heard what we heard.I hope the cast reads this, and understands that Jesus loves the truth! It will set us free!

It is very strange - watching the reunion it appears that everyone, Andy Cohen included, is afraid of NeNe. I understand that she is large and acts as though she has mental problems but to allow her to all but take over the reunion made for very boring tv. She is loud, aggressive and attempts to intimidate. Remove her from the set if she cannot act civilized.

Lawrence is a star unlike kim she needs alot more practice and time and definitely time and dedication. And now that she is pregnant is she still going to sing or is she going to stop? may god bless each and every 1 of them!

For everybody who's lashing out at Nene. Remember this, she is the one who makes that show worth watching whether you like it or not. That show needs drama and she brings it. for that reason, she will not be fired and let’s face it, when bravo air an episode without Nene on it, or with a little bit of her presence, that episode turn out to be boring. Also, people, keep in mind that she had a rough year. It’s only during the last four episodes from the bus altercation that everybody gang up on her. Anyway, she's the only one that people love to hate, but at least she's not phony. You either like her or not. Whether you like her or not, face it, she makes that show worth watching.

Ok, I just have to add, it is NE NE and KIM who are acting childish. Everyone is coming hard at Ne Ne, but it is the two of them. Ne Ne is the same all the way around whether we like it or not. The other four (Phaedra, Kim, Sheree and Kandi) change with whomever they are with. Phaedra came after Ne Ne during the reunion show, why, I have no idea. Ne Ne said she did not know Phaedra in Athens, but everyone is saying Phaedra caught her in a lie when she didn't. Ne Ne called Phaedra AFTER Athens. She then came after her about her husband but ALL of them except for Kandi talked about her husband. Sheree called her a b*** for not knowing her due date, but none of that came out. Everyone had a problem with Ne Ne confronting Kim about Sweetie but no one had a problem with Big Poppa calling her a black b***? Get Real, if Kim is dating a man that feels that way, what does it say about her? Yes, Ne Ne was out of order after they got off of the bus, but almost everyone on that show has behaved unlady like. I'm just impressed that Ne Ne is keeping her composure and sticking to what she has said all along, unlike everyone else who keeps changing their stories and opinions, especially Sheree.

ne ne had the worst faces at the reunion it made me sick to watch her . phaedra wasn't able to catch her breath,and cinthia, probably wants to take back her friend contract. this was the worst reunion show ive ever seen. very disrespectful ne ne. i think these women show thanks to be on this show. and NE NE sat there and said f u to the franchise that has made her who she is today. NE NE needs to be taken down a notch and be thankful. rolling your eyes and making pure hatefull gestures on the reunion was sickening to watch. i laughed at ne ne and kim, together they had a great time. kim could get Ne Ne laughing and it was great. WORST REUNION EVER

Please give us more Lawrence...a.k.a Closet Freak!

Did I hear Kim say her & Derek J have parted ways?

NeNe has ruined this show for me. I just can't watch it any longer with her on it. Andy Cohen said NeNe is "so funny". I have to tell you, she USED to be on season one. She is certainly NOT funny on this side of the TV. If I want to watch a tantrum throwing, in your face, childish, LOUD, obnoxious person, I can just watch a bunch of school yard kids. Sorry, but HOA has lost me, as long as this big mouth child/woman is on the show. I do enjoy Kandi, Sheree (in small doses) and Kim. Phaedra is much better when she drops the silly act of "southern belle." This childish fighting is just too much for me. NeNe needs to take some off, get anger management and get control of her ego. She really is not all that.

when will the bravo producers get ne ne off this show? the 1st season she really was the most likeable, but she has let this show go to her head. why don't y'all pull a danielle and just get rid of her? she can not stand when the attention is on anyone else. please just get rid of her!!!

From my perspective
From my perspective

The only housewives that I've seen with class is Cynthia and Kandi. I think we've all pretty much seen Nene, Kim, and Sheree at their very worst. Phaedra is not far behind them. The comments about the man sucking his own penis threw me for a loop, as well as other distasteful comments that she has made shows me that she is not a true southern belle. I will be surprised if this get posted. As they never post anything from me.

Bravo get rid of NeNe and Kim and give us more housewives like Phaedra And Cynthia.

NeNe needs some deep psychotherapy and Kim needs to go to Charm school.

My posts (comments haven't been posted in a long time). I think last night's reunion show part 1 was more like the NeNe and Kim Show. Unless I missed something last night. I hope part 2 will be about the other housewives.

That Nene is embarrassing!! She is going postal on almost everyone with the utmost lack of class on so many occasions. Yet everyone else is holding at least some sign of lady like composure Is this the show where we can vote her off? Oh darn wrong show.. Kudos to the rest of you for stayin in the line of fire. Especially u kim.

Nene needs to go to Survivor and really entertain us. She will get such a dose of reality television and the ratings will be off the chain.

NeNe is my favorite ! I believe that she will make it to the top before all of them. She's funny , dramatic, classy in her own way. I can't wait to watch her on the apprentice. Trump chose right, girl you better ask for a raise next episode do your thing girl ! toast to you, i have my glass of moscato to. CHEERS ... I LOVE YOU......... LEAVE kIM ALONE FOCUS ON YOUR CAREER s sHEREE YOU ARE PHONY YOU ARE NOT THAT RICH. KIM YOU ARE Candy keep on singing and don't get caught up in the r/r. Phadra you husband will leave you soon, you opened the door for his fine ass. Cynthia you shouldn't have married Peter he wants control don't let him be the boss, take control . He was phony at the wedding crying

I just love the show and think that it is very entertaining. Those women and the high-heeled men keep me laughing. Don't care what anyone say's about NeNe, she is my favorite housewife and she is the star of the show. If NeNe was not on the show it would be kinda boring, because she adds the hot sauce to flavor up what ever is going on. Look forward to watching next season and seeing who is getting on everybodys nerves!!!!!!

Love the RHOA!!! It was a good season!!! NeNe was very mean and angry during the whole season but I guess that's the way she has always been. I Loved Candy and Kim, they were amazing together!!! The best liar in the show...Phaedra!!! and I really like Sheree, very quiet this season!! Cynthia had a very cheap weeding!!! Did BRAVO ended up paying for it???

I love the Housewives of Atlanta, but am tired of Kim already. I agree with Nene and Kandi about the way she talks to Sweetie and Sweetie need to remember that we overcame all that fetchn and bullshitz that Kim has her doing. I hope her check is worth it. Kandi is my favorite. She is so classy and carries herself that way and is very confident with who she is. Congratulatiobns on your tour with Fansasia!!! Kandi, whenever you are ready, I wrote a song that you might be interested in. I want to be a one hit wonder too, but I can carry a note, unlike Kim. Best wishes and may God continue to bless you!! Much love.♥

Question: I know several of us have asked this question and it has yet to be answered, however, hope springs eternal so I will ask it again :) Q: Aren't the Housewives contractually obligated to write their blogs each week?? It would seem that blogging is a part of the deal. And they always did until Jill Zarin became so obnoxious that everyone turned against her and she decided to pull a disappearing act and not blog anymore. From there we have had less and less participation from the Housewives on these sites. NOTE TO PRODUCERS: These shows are fun to watch and there has been a tremendous following making ordinary women into celebrities (at least for a time), but a good part of the fun for us viewers is the blogging. Without it we can only take what we see in the show and consider it to be the way things are; when often times there is a lot more to it and we learn that through the blogs. It's also a lot of fun for us devotees to interact with the Housewives. The only group that has been faithful to blogging has been the New Jersey girls, and Theresa in particular established a real rapport with us. Would love to get a response on this, and more importantly, would love to have the blogs to read from each one of them. Thanks

If you call what Kim does "singing", I guess you can call what Sheree does, "acting". I'm very tired of Kim and her foul mouth and tackiness. Bringing her own wine to Cynthia's wedding was tacky, tacky, tacky. Good luck, Kroy! You'll need it.

Sheree is the biggest phony of all the housewives, so it's no wonder she could land an acting part or two. She ACTS all the time - she "acts" like she's rich; she "acts" like she's a friend; she tries to "act" elitist and fails miserably; she tried to "act" like she was a fashion designer, but we see how well that turned out. I could go on. But I won't.

It look like Pheadra was competing with her there for a while, but I think Pheadra actually believes her own self proclaimed hype. And at least she does have an actual law degree.

I used to love NeNe, but she started the fight. NeNe LOVES the spotlight and Kim was in it. We all know that Kim can't sing, be real, but let the girl have her monute. Kandi is the real class act of the group.

the high heel wearing men always top the list but here's my three Kim's eye shot on the bus, the acting 101 scene when Cynthia forgot the wedding license and Diana " What you talkin nout Willis at the lunch scene. I swear you can't make this up. Was Nene mad because we saw her without makeup and lashes, really someone mshould've passed her some free cheese. For once Sweetie look liked she could float Nene a loan. Lawrences eyelash look, didn't that come from A clockwork orange, and his moves catwoman with Halle Barry? And Kim gave us the black face look with those eye bulging out of her head in fear. Bravo! Bravo! Brava
