Episode 17: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Kandi, Jo Dee, and Country

Kandi finally heard her first foray into country music come to fruition this week, and the results were fantastic! Of course, it was only a first draft of sorts. But still it sounds as if Kandi could easily korner the country music biz as well. The true test however would be for Kandi to transform Tightrope, the original song from Season 1 that Kim planned on recording with Dallas Austin (Remember that little old man who wrote the song? ), into a hit. If she can do that, Kandi can truly do anything.

No. 2 - Mother Knows Best

I was nervous for Damon when Sheree wanted to meet with him about proposing to Tierra. Could you imagine? Sheree might be the most intimidating mother-in-law ever. It seemed to be going OK until Damon mentioned that he talked to Bob about it first. In that moment a vision of a car driving off a cliff flashed through my mind... Needless to say, Sheree was none to pleased about that. Sheree made that clear when she told him, "You need to come this way."

Though even more priceless was her face when Damon said that he wasn't focusing on the clarity of the diamond for the engagement ring. I think her eyes may have popped out of her head at that point. Luckily for Tierra, Sheree's now on the case to make sure she gets the perfect ring.

No. 1 - Baby Cakes

It's been far too long since the last Phaedra Parks party. There's always some little surprise at her events, whether it's a surprise ballet routine or in this case the presentation of not one, but twelve birthday cakes. Because why risk getting the wrong cake when you can just get one from each of the best bakeries in Atlanta? Perhaps the strangest part however was that each cake was brought up to Ayden by (presumably) the baker. So each baker took the day off to head to a water park and deliver their cake? Did they get to ride the water slides after? I guess we'll never know.

It was Sheree however who voiced the question I'm sure everyone was thinking -- "Who gonna eat all that damn cake?" Who indeed.

Next week Phaedra's sporting a fascinator for Ayden's christening and Kim confronts Cynthia about Africa.

NeNe Explains the Wig

NeNe Leakes dishes on the fans' reaction to her latest interview look. 

Being a busy business woman is no joke, but I love what I do and create! For over a year I worked tirelessly with my team creating The NeNe Leakes Collection clothing line for all women of all sizes. I joined forces with HSN to launch this fabulous collection, and I couldn't have partnered with a better company! As you could see, we started our launch at midnight, but what you may not have realized was that I was there for a 24 hour period that actually started at midnight. Not only did the cold shoulder tunic sell out, many of my pieces sold out within hours of the launch! I can't tell you how grateful I am for that. All I want to do is make every woman feel fabulous in the skin she's in while wearing my collection. Thank you to the entire team at HSN and Tiger J! I am proud to say, we are family! Thanks to all of you that purchased my collection and helped make it a success!


As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don't work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn't work. I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I'd rather not! I will say this though: A wig comes off, so it's a good thing I am comfortable in the skin I am in. Why let little things like a wig or makeup define me? I'm one of those girls that lives by my own rules, which is why I am a force to be reckoned with. I'm proud of who I am and all that I've accomplished! I have discovered my true self, and I couldn't be happier, but I have a sense of humor and I must say some of the pictures I saw on social media of my hair were hilarious! My hubby and I fell out of the bed laughing at some of the stuff we saw!

P.S. Wearing that wig wasn't all bad, because the very next day I got a business call from a hair company wanting to do a wig line with me! Cha-Ching! #ByeWig.
