The BAM! Squad's Assistant Editor selects the top three moments of Episode 16.

Feb 1, 2011

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:
