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.

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
