Is This What Toto had in Mind?

Episode 13: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Don't Be Tardy for Safari

Lions and rhinos and 'Wives, oh my! We're truly not in Atlanta anymore, as the ladies went from wild fights to wildlife on their safari. And as Phaedra pointed out it was as picturesque as... a beer commercial? In any event, it looked spectacular and both the Talls and the Smalls got to see some amazing animals in their natural habitat.

It seemed like the Smalls were having a little more fun watching the wildlife than the Talls (I don't who Cynthia was kidding when she tried to get Marlo and NeNe to quiet down). So much fun in fact, that Phaedra decided to put on her own little Masterpiece Theater of sorts and narrate her interpretation of the Talls' triangle via a group of giraffes. I guess it was too much of a coincidence that the three tallest animals just happened to be standing together for Phaedra to pass up commenting on all the vying for NeNe's attention.

No. 2 - Dances with School Children

It was quite the juxtaposition starting the episode with the tail end of Sheree and Marlo's melee and then seeing the 'Wives interact with the local children. Their visit to the orphanage was moving for them (and for all of us at home), but I most enjoyed seeing them play with a group of school kids. Those kids can dance! And it was precious watching all the ladies try to bust a move with them. (I think those kids could have taught the Housewives a thing or two.) But besides being fun to watch, spending time with the children seemed to have helped the ladies move on from all their personal issues. At least for now anyway...

No. 1 - Make It Rain Down in Africa

Grab your umbrella when you go out with Marlo, because evidently she likes to make it rain. And really what better way to blow off some steam after having a fight? The other ladies were slightly taken aback by all the cash raining down in the club, but that didn't stop Kandi and Phaedra from profiting off of Marlo's money throwing. As Phaedra aptly noted, "If honey wants to throw her money away, throw it right in my bosoms. Ayden could use some new shoes, some pampers, everything else, and some souvenirs." Get it, girl!

Side note: After watching this go down, I couldn't help but wonder -- Is this what Toto had in mind?

Next week the ladies give bonding another try. And what better way to bond than over some good old fashioned sex talk?

NeNe Explains the Wig

NeNe Leakes dishes on the fans' reaction to her latest interview look. 

Being a busy business woman is no joke, but I love what I do and create! For over a year I worked tirelessly with my team creating The NeNe Leakes Collection clothing line for all women of all sizes. I joined forces with HSN to launch this fabulous collection, and I couldn't have partnered with a better company! As you could see, we started our launch at midnight, but what you may not have realized was that I was there for a 24 hour period that actually started at midnight. Not only did the cold shoulder tunic sell out, many of my pieces sold out within hours of the launch! I can't tell you how grateful I am for that. All I want to do is make every woman feel fabulous in the skin she's in while wearing my collection. Thank you to the entire team at HSN and Tiger J! I am proud to say, we are family! Thanks to all of you that purchased my collection and helped make it a success!


As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don't work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn't work. I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I'd rather not! I will say this though: A wig comes off, so it's a good thing I am comfortable in the skin I am in. Why let little things like a wig or makeup define me? I'm one of those girls that lives by my own rules, which is why I am a force to be reckoned with. I'm proud of who I am and all that I've accomplished! I have discovered my true self, and I couldn't be happier, but I have a sense of humor and I must say some of the pictures I saw on social media of my hair were hilarious! My hubby and I fell out of the bed laughing at some of the stuff we saw!

P.S. Wearing that wig wasn't all bad, because the very next day I got a business call from a hair company wanting to do a wig line with me! Cha-Ching! #ByeWig.
