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?

Spoilers Ahead: 7 Things We Learned at the RHOA Reunion

Get the tea on everything from NeNe's mom to new cheating allegations.

1Did Peter Cheat on Cynthia?

No! Cynthia says she would know if Peter was stepping out on her and that Porsha was making reckless allegations. 

Oh and Peter also made it clear that he would rather play with himself than sleep with one of his employees.

2Did Kordell Cheat on Porsha?

Yes! In an unexpected twist, Porsha let it be known that Kordell had cheated on her when they were still married.

She only learned about it after the fact though.

3Did Phaedra Have an Affair with an African Man Named Chocolate?

No! Phaedra claims she's never "done anything to compromise her marriage."

 

She even revealed that she still loves Apollo.

4Why Did NeNe Fall Out with Cynthia?

According to NeNe, Cynthia blindsided her at the reunion last year, because they had already mended fences. She thinks Peter told Cynthia to "change gears" with NeNe.

She also claims that Cynthia asked for her seat to be changed so that she and NeNe weren't sitting together.

5Why Did Cynthia Fall Out with NeNe?

According to Cynthia, NeNe wrote shady things about her in her blog over a comment Cynthia made in the show...all while they were on a trip together in Las Vegas. 

And that was the breaking point for Cynthia.

6Why Can't NeNe Talk About Her Mom?

As Gregg told Andy, NeNe's mother had five children when she was very young, and sent NeNe and her brother to Athens to be raised by her aunt. 

NeNe's always wondered why she was one of the two siblings sent away, and it's bugges her all her life.

7Does Andy Have Opinions on All of This?
