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.

No.2 - Manners by Marlo

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...

No. 1 - Face-Off

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.

Next week the ladies go from wild fights to wild animals as they set off on safari. Frankly I think the lion seems less scary that Sheree and Marlo's brawl.

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
