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.

Kenya: NeNe Was Trying to Diffuse the Situation

Kenya Moore shares her thoughts on Claudia and NeNe's confrontation.

Bravotv.com: Were you happy with Cynthia's performance in your pilot?
Kenya Moore: I think she did a solid job! I know that I can be very tough when I have my producer hat on. Cynthia is pretty new to acting, and I didn't have the kind of time that I would have liked to walk her through each step so that she was absolutely comfortable. I think she was a bit nervous at first, but she quickly adapted and I was very impressed.

Bravotv.com: Was the vibe still positive between you and Phaedra at her event?
KM: Yes, I was focused on supporting her and the event.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised NeNe walked out of Phaedra's event?
KM: I cannot say I was. I also wasn't there to witness the entire exchange between her and the other girls, but it did appear that she was trying to diffuse the situation of a potential argument occurring. When that didn't seem likely, she did what she's accustomed to doing, which is leave.
