Giving Good Face
Episode 12: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.
No. 3 - On My Own
I think we miss Kroy just as much as Kim does! He needs to finish up at training camp as soon as possible, because, as Kim pointed out, with the ladies in Africa it's just her, her two boobs, and her three kids. But hey, at least she has her parents to keep her company and cook her turkey meatballs.
And it would seem that Kim's trained her girls very, very well. Ariana's already on Kroy's case about getting a big rock for Kim. I can only hope that the proposal goes more smoothly than Kim's "romantic" surprise for Kroy from last week. Then again, it would be kind of amazing if Mr. Zolciak popped out to share some of his patented words of wisdom.
So as we learned on the car ride to the hotel, Marlo is writing a book on etiquette. (Watch out, Countess!) Now I hate awkward silences, so I understand why she might feel the need to keep the conversation going, but after such a long flight I think the last thing you want to hear about is how to pass the salt. All the ladies seemed to feel that way (except for NeNe, who was just amused), and Sheree summed up how she really felt about getting advice on manners from Marlo by saying, "I doubt very seriously that Emily Post has a chapter in her book on aggravated assault." Oh snap! And this was only the beginning of the tension between those two...
Now the Atlanta ladies have produced some of the most epic fights in Housewives history -- Who gonna check me boo, the wig snatch, Kim and NeNe's bus battle. But the fight between Sheree and Marlo this week was epic. So epic that there was a commercial break in the middle of it. It went on that long. Now Marlo threw a lot of accusations Sheree's way, which I won't even repeat here because they were so scathing, but yikes!
What I do want to discuss is the strange moment when they started making that bizarre face at one another and speaking in what I can only describe as gibberish. What was that? It was as if they were both possessed by a pair of demonic parakeets. And it went on for what seemed like an eternity. Now I'm just curious to see how they can handle being around one another for the rest of this trip, because it definitely wasn't the type of fight you can just sweep under the rug.
