Drive Away!

Episode 14: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - No Bones About It

There are many rules in Housewives Land. One of my favorites is the involvement of some sort of psychic/medium at least one time per season. Instead of Kim's grandmotherly Psychic Rose however, this week we were treated to a South African medicine man. Or help artist herbalist. And this guy kind of made Allison DuBois seem completely reasonable.

First of all, what was going on with that jar of "medicine"? Given that you were supposed to put the medicine in your bath water, wash yourself with it, drink it, and spit it out again, it really sounds more like a Petri dish of ancient bacteria. I would not have put my nose anywhere near that stuff, but kudooze to the ladies for being good sports.

The predictions he made with his "bones" were a little bit snoozy, since they were all about whether the ladies would get married again or not. But the best moment by far was when he told Sheree that she was too old to get married again. I guess he was unfamiliar with "Who gonna check me, boo?" but I think Sheree was about one second away from getting up and going off on this guy. Luckily NeNe kind of swooped in and asked to have her fortune told before Sheree could give him a taste of her own medicine.

No. 2 - Let's Talk About Sex

This trip has certainly been a roller coaster ride of friendship with this group. One minute they're the sisterhood of the traveling pants, the next they're getting so angry at one another that things devolve into making strange faces and noises at one another. There is one thing that always manages to bring these women together however... Sex! Forget music, that's what really makes the people come together.

Even Kandi and Marlo can bond over sex. They were like old friends sharing their favorite positions with one another. And those were some seriously crazy moves! These girls do not mess around in the boudoir. Perhaps if there was a daily, mandatory Kandi Koated Nights session, all fights would be avoided. Well, probably not, but you never know.

No. 1 - Drive Away!

I don't know why exactly, but that short segment where NeNe gets scared by the elephant herd on safari was hilarious to me. Mostly because hearing her whisper "Drive away!" fifty times while the rest of the girls try and take photos was amazing. But the moment became pure gold when the scene ended, it shifted to the graphic of all the ladies holding peaches, and we get one final, unexpected "Drive away!" I almost choked on the water I was drinking at the time. So hats off to you, Bravo editors!

Next week we're back in Atlanta, and NeNe gets some disappointing news about her son.

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.
