The BAM! Squad

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor selects the top three moments of Episode 12.  

Dec 21, 20100

Happy Holidays, Atlanta lovers! Alas, we are now heading into a two-week holiday hiatus so I hope you got your fix on Sunday. At least you'll have copious amounts of cocktails (assuming your family gatherings are anything like mine), cookies, and cakes to distract you from the pain of the Atlanta shaped hole in your heart. And if you need a major dose of Holiday Cheer, check out our "A Very Housewives Holiday" gallery. If Phaedra's Christmas card photo doesn't put you in good spirits, I don't know what will!

On to the episode. The #3 moment comes to us courtesy of Kim's personal shopping session. Honestly where does Kim's stylist find these clothes? Are they specially made Kim Zolciak couture pieces? In any event, I think the essence of the scene is best distilled into the following quotes:

"You won't be able to see the areolas if we do a bit of a pasty."

"That's the new butt cleavage, the side boob."

"There's a fine line between style and trashy."

Needless to say, from now on I'm retiring all my butt cleavage jeans and rocking major side boob. 

The #2 spot goes to the spa showdown between Phaedra and Kim. I guess when the makeup comes off, so do any civilities. Now we've all been waiting for this moment for ages. There was just something so chilling in the season preview when Kim utters the word "convict," and now the moment has finally arrived. In any event, both Kim and Phaedra were going for low blows. For example when Phaedra said, "Just because you strip out of a nurse's outfit does not make you a nurse, Baby Girl." Eek! I think it's safe to say that's going to come up at the reunion. I felt a little bad for Kim though, since really everyone had been talking about Phaedra's due date and she was the only one who got singled out. But hey, would you be brave enough to step into a 'Housewives' hornets' nest? I wonder if they could actually enjoy the spa treatments after all that. At least they could ease their own physical tension if nothing else.

IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SHEREE HAS CHANGED HER CHARATER. SEASON ONE SHE WAS THE SNOB WITH THE ASSISTANT, AND THE HUGE HUGE HOUSE. NOW THAT SHE IS DIVORCED SHE SEEMS MORE DOWN TO EARTH AND MORE UNDERSTANDING. SEASON ON SHE WAS THE MEAN GIRL CALLING NENE GHETTO ECT.

Hey Andrew,

Good God, these women are like the Housewives of Walmart. The only one with a brain, class, looks and no attitude is Kandi. Kandi is awesome, her voice, her attitude, everything about her exudes class. Her mother did her a great service. The rest of them, dumb, dumber, dumber, and dumberer.

Kim loves the drama, she lives to talk about and start mess with other housewives so the eyes won't be on her. If I have to hear "At the end of the Day" and "Moving on" one more time. There really is no class about Kim at all she acts and carries herself like one of Hugh Heffner girls let see how much I can show everybody.

Don't know why you feel bad that Kim was "jumped on". She was the one who started the gossip and yes, the others followed. But Kim was the person keeping it going. And Kim, is the last person to question someone elses lifestyle. Tell Kim to stop using the term retard and stop playing with her wig when she's on camera!

Correction: Phaedra jumped on Cynthia in the previous episode before she jumped on Kim at the spa so it wasn't just Kim who was singled out.

Omg! I laughed so hard!

As an African American woman, I have natural(no chemicals) hair. It's healthy and long, so I would like to keep it that way. I love to change up my looks without ruining my hair, so I will wear the hell out of some wigs. When I saw Kandi's wig fall off I laughed so hard until I cried. It was at this moment that I decided that I'm done. I'm going on vacation for the holidays(with my wigs of course because I plan to swim) but when I get back it's a wrap. Wig free! Maybe now my neighbors will stop harassing me about "why I wear wigs with such beautiful hair." Thanks Kandi

I think the reason Kim was singled out was because Kandi told Phaedra that Kim did the most talking AND although the others questioned the validity of her due date, Kim was the one who made the alien comment.
