Episode 20: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Think Big

Kim doesn't really deal in small things. She likes big hair, she had big babies, and she gives big gifts. So when Kroy's birthday rolled around, it was no surprise (to me at least, Kroy seemed pretty taken aback) that she had a crazy gift prepared. That's got to be pretty awesome to roll into a restaurant in your everyday car, and then to have a valet hand you the keys to a brand new Porsche on the way out. Though of course all I could think of when the two of them rode away was, "Who's driving the other car that they took there?"

Side Note: Did anyone else notice that on the door of the restaurant it said, "Proper dress required"? Were they near a beach or something? What kind of attire have people been wearing so frequently to this place that they needed this caveat engraved upon the door?

No. 2 - A Rolex is Forever

Famous Famiglia John is back on the scene, so that can only mean one thing -- more gifts for NeNe! Now he's given her everything from Louboutins to an elderly opera singer, but John took it to a whole new level this time when she opened up a Rolex. I think we all need to find some business partners like this.

Of course like every other time John showers NeNe with gifts, it was a little uncomfortable. When she asked him what the gift meant, all he said was that a Rolex lasts forever... What does that mean?! It seemed to imply more than just that their business relationship would last forever. But hey, I probably wouldn't have been asking too many questions either if someone had a Rolex for me.

No. 1 - Eye Kandi

You can't throw a sex toy party without some eye-candy on hand. I'm not sure if that's an Emily Post rule, but it really should be. Kandi was clearly on the same page, so she decided to screen some hot hunks for her Bedroom Kandi launch. Of course Phaedra and Sheree were there to lend moral support and make comments like, "I don't need anybody that's smaller than my fifteen-year-old son." After rejecting some random applicants who didn't meet the requisite beefcake qualifications, a troupe of shirtless, super buff masseurs swarmed in armed with foot massages and strawberries. Needless to say the girls were sold. Are there many companies that provide this service? If so, I'll be hiring them for every future party I throw.

Hopefully you enjoyed that relaxing sex toy shindig, because next week is the reunion and it is insanity. Just watch this preview, there are no words that can capture what you're about to see.

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.
