Don't Pump and Drive!

Episode 8: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Welcome to the Wig House

Kim's new home is very Kim. And I mean that literally, since there are photos of her everywhere. In the halls, but more importantly on the walls of the study. Because nothing helps set the mood for hunkering down with a good novel like glamour shots of Kim. 

And while the house is gorgeous, there is one area that I feel was left out of the house tour -- the wig room! You know there is one. I mean they were buckled into the car for goodness sake, so I would be shocked if there was not at the very least some special closet for them. Though really I'm imagining a completely mirrored room where you can see how the wig looks on you from every angle.  No. 2 - Big Poppas, Big Problems

The altercation between Kandi and Marlo at Cynthia's grand opening party was strange for a number of reasons. First off, I couldn't tell whether Marlo was aware of the fact that she kept dropping the term "Big Poppa" over and over in front of Kim. Did she know about Kim and the Big Poppa situation or was it purely chance that she was saying it? In any event, NeNe certainly got a kick out of it.

Marlo also accused Kandi of being a "Big Momma," which just really does not sound flattering in any way. Who knew asking someone what they do for a living would end up causing so much chaos? 

No. 1. - Don't Drink and Pump!

Recently we've learned about Kim's rather interesting priorities when it comes to car safety. On the one hand, everyone (including wigs) should always be buckled up. However as long as you have someone who can man the steering wheel while you pump your breasts, there's no reason you shouldn't save some time and fill up bottles on your way to run errands. I guess that's one way for Brielle to practice her driving. 

Phaedra: I Was Disappointed with Cynthia

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Cynthia Bailey's "classless" behavior. 

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to perform an exorcism at the house? Do you think it helped?

Phaedra Parks: I was raised in the church. Both of my parents are pastors along with eight of my uncles. I believe in spirits and energy. The energy in my home was noticeably different so I wanted my Apostle to bless and tarry in our home in an effort to bring a renewed and positive energy into the house. Regardless of whether or not you believe doing such a thing actually works, it is a way for all of us to reset ourselves, let go of the negativity, and move forward with our lives. I know prayer changes things and calms the atmosphere. Following Apostle Canada's visit we rested better and there was a spirit of peace and tranquility in our home. We have begun the next chapter of our lives and are focused on the future.

Bravotv.com: You and NeNe have grown a lot closer. How did that come about?

PP: I consider NeNe a good friend. We have not always been on the same page, however we have found a common ground of being like-minded, successful entrepreneurs and mothers of sons. When I needed a friend the most, she was there and I will always remember that. It is easy to find friends when life is going well, but it is the ones who are willing to support you during the storms that matter. During the months when my life was spinning out of control, NeNe called me every single day to see how I was doing despite her busy schedule. She sent encouraging text messages when she could not reach me. I was grateful that I had her and Porsha in my corner because they helped me through some of my most difficult days.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your head when Kenya brought up the rumor?

PP: Well, in actuality it was Cynthia who brought up the rumor. I was disappointed that Cynthia, a fellow wife and mother, would be so insensitive to repeat such an absurd notion less than 24 hours following my husband’s incarceration and the drama that occurred with it. At no point have Cynthia and Peter ever reached out to check on me or my children. I was amazed that she was more interested in spreading a lie than supporting me as a woman and newly single mother. I guess the purported class she touts must have been on winter break, because that was the most classless thing I have ever witnessed.

As far as Kenya is concerned, I never expect much from her, but as always her obsessive interest in my life, plus her extreme actions and emotional state, further corroborate the affair between her and Apollo.
