The BAM! Squad

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

Dec 21, 2010

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.
