Episode 10: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - African Dancing Queens

What doesn't Phaedra do? Lawyer, funeral home owner in training, mother, and now African dance maven. Seriously where does she find the time for all of this? And she was pretty good to boot. It would appear that donkey booty is just full of secrets.

Kandi on the other hand tried to play it off that she's not a dancer. However I think she's one of those people who can secretly bust a move, but shies away from the dance floor. I mean you've been a performer for years, there's no way you haven't developed a decent rhythm. Once she got into it and wasn't so self-conscious, Kandi seemed to be keeping up with the group just fine. She may still become the Black Swan yet, Phaedra.

And hey, compared to Ramona, Alex, and Sonja trying to do the dougie, these two looked like seasoned professionals.

No. 2 - Mama Joyce, Peacemaker

Mama Joyce is a brave woman. Trying to get NeNe, Kim, and Sheree to be friendly when they are currently not speaking is quite frankly dangerous. I mean has she watched some of their past fights? I wouldn't want to be caught in the middle of that. You're basically asking to get the weave snatched right off you head in the crossfire. But luckily for Joyce the ladies behaved, because who doesn't love Joyce? Or maybe they just didn't want to cross her after witnessing her chew out Kandi for the ReDICKulous debacle. Either way it was fine if painfully awkward.

On a side note the best part of the whole scene was probably the end when Joyce realized she'd actually been drinking wine the whole time even though she doesn't drink. Oops! What exactly did she think she was drinking? But it all makes sense now, because who hasn't tried to have awkward conversations while drunk?

No. 1 - Can You Hear Me Now?

Another feather to put in Phaedra's accomplishment hat is befriending African dignitaries. Evidently she and the Vice President of Ghana go way back, so why not make a call over to Africa to let him know she's visiting? But just as they were beginning to chat, someone dropped the call. This is because, as Phaedra informs us, "Africa is the worst place to call. It's so hard to get through." Maybe it's time to switch service providers, Africa, because everybody knows Phaedra has people to talk to over there!

Next week the Africa trip begins, but with one little surprise...

Phaedra: I Was Hoping Apollo Wouldn't Create a Scene

Phaedra Parks shares her thoughts on Apollo's surprise appearance at the party.

Bravotv.com: Did you find the advice from Kandi’s cousin Melvin helpful?

Phaedra Parks: A personal perspective based on experience is always insightful. I appreciate him sharing his thoughts and experience with me so openly. 

Bravotv.com: What were your first impressions of Demetria and Claudia?

PP: When I attended Demetria's event, my focus was an evening of escape from my current reality. I didn't attend with the idea of engaging in any captivating conversations. I had very limited interaction with Demetria and Claudia, so my first impression was merely that both women were attempting to embark on new career and relationship frontiers.

 

Bravotv.com: How difficult was it for you when Apollo surprised you at the party?

PP: It was not difficult at all, but quite uncomfortable. Not only uncomfortable for me, but I would think uncomfortable for everyone else as well. I cannot think of a more inappropriate time or place to have a private conversation about our marriage than in the middle of a nightclub during the premiere of a music video. At that particular place in time, the tension in our relationship was at an all-time high. And even though Apollo had not been around much, the stress was ever present as was evident. I was just really hoping he would not create a scene. My goal was to not fan any of his ego flames, nor have a private conversation in a public place. Everybody knows it would be better to let your slip show a little bit in order to avoid the possibility of having to show your entire ass.
