All In

Episode 19: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - A Tight Ass Proposal

Kroy finally pops the question to Kim this week, and while we don't get to see it, we do get to hear Kim explain how it went down to Sheree. Besides presenting her with a blinding ten karat rock, Kroy surprised her at their new home by spelling out "Will you marry me?" with red roses in their backyard. However my favorite part of the proposal was that Kim had her wig off and was wearing sweatpants, a tank top, and slippers. I guess Kroy was really going for the element of surprise, since I can't imagine Kim would choose to face such a momentous occasion wig-less. 

Kim also took the opportunity to ask Sheree to be one of her bridesmaids. She did after all introduce the happy couple at the unforgettable Dancing Stars of Atlanta event from last season. Kim requested that Sheree bring her "tight ass" and she delivered. The question now is will all the bridesmaids be wearing She be Sheree?

No. 2 - Faking Your Own Death

There's one part of the funeral biz I knew Phaedra would ace -- the casket sale. Phaedra's got a very cool and concerned casket-side manner, and she wields her consoling Southern belle voice perfectly. Her final test went over as smoothly as you'd expect, until the couple she was helping revealed that they were just actors. I kind of wish they had given her a harder time and threw in some more curve balls. Like saying the deceased was a clown and wanted to be buried in clown attire. Or asking if they could get a jewel encrusted coffin. You get the idea. 

No. 1 - All In

Whenever Phaedra and Kandi get together, things get very candid. Phaedra's visit to TAGS was no exception. As Phaedra stumbled upon some glittery booty shorts, she let it be known that no one with a donkey-like build should be wearing shorts -- skirts and long pants only. I wonder though, would they be acceptable if worn with a prayer cloth?

Things got really real though when Kandi asked Phaedra if she's trying for a second baby. Their exchange went as follows:

Phaedra: I mean we're having sex unprotected with no birth control

Kandi: He's not pulling out?

Phaedra: Heck no! He's staying in.

Only Phaedra could say this and make it sound hilariously adorable.

Next week is the Season 4 finale! Expect plenty of eye candy courtesy of Kandi's sex toy launch bash.

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right on in.


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
