Episode 11: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Friends in High Platforms

Maybe it's just me, but did NeNe and Marlo's friendship seem rather unexpected? In any event, mazel to them! And truth be told, when NeNe explains all their similarities, it kind of all makes sense. They both love shoes. They're both 5'10''. When NeNe walks into a room, she owns it. When Marlo walks into a room, she ALMOST owns it. So I guess Marlo is like her little sister. A NeNe in training if you will. And who doesn't love a friend who just doles out designer handbags?

The other girls better play nicely with these ladies, because two 5'10'' divas in Louboutins are a force to be reckoned with, especially given moment No. 2...

No. 2 - Surprise!

NeNe's new BFF came into her life just in time. NeNe needed some more backup on the Africa trip, so why not bring Marlo? If they walk into this trip together, they'll most certainly own it. However I guess NeNe just forgot to alert anyone else that Marlo was coming. Oops. But seriously that's a big deal, because when you add another person to a group trip, you can completely change the dynamic. And given Kandi and Sheree's reactions, I have a feeling it may not be a change for the better. 

Maybe that uneasy feeling Kandi had about the trip was actually a premonition. Is she the new Allison DuBois? Get her an electric cigarette!

No. 1 - Manne-Kim

Kim's get skinny quick schemes are probably one of my favorite things about this show. Where does she even find out about these things? While the laser pizza incident last season can probably never be topped, Kim's mummy wrap is certainly a close second. I really don't quite get how being wrapped in gauze for an hour is supposed to make you lose weight, but evidently it worked. The best part by far was when Kim was bouncing on the trampoline and then it would cut to Kandi hurling giant tires around with her trainer. I have to say if it's a choice between being ensconced in bandages or lifting tires with Kandi's scary trainer, I'd take the wrap route.

Next week in perhaps the most unexpected twist of the season, NeNe plays peacemaker when Sheree and Marlo go off on one another. Will wonders never cease? 

Demetria: I Have No Beef with Kenya

Demetria McKinney addresses the Roger Bobb situation.

Bravotv.com: When did you and Cynthia originally meet?
Demetria McKinney: Cynthia Bailey and I have been really cool for a couple of years now. We run in similar social circles, and I've always loved her spirit.


Bravotv.com: Did you feel like you and Kenya resolved the issue over her photo with Roger Bobb?
DM: As for me and Kenya…hmm. Just a couple of discrepancies: She didn't know me, but remembered meeting me with Nicci. She has no interest in Roger, but got all gussied up to see him at my event and threw shade galore when he claimed me. OK, girl! LOL! As for the picture, the fact that she was in it wasn't the issue. I've been in a relationship on and off for 8 years, and when the media was loudly connecting him to someone else, I didn't like it. Period. It could've been Strawberry Shortcake, it could've been Whoopi Goldberg. The fact that I was ready to be out about us was the issue. Kenya's picture just happened to be the last straw (speaking of straw, hey NeNe). So, yeah, I have no beef with Kenya. Not worried or bothered, I'm actually looking for opportunities to celebrate each of these women!


Bravotv.com: Was it tough when Roger wasn’t able to make it to your video release party?
DM: My bae, Roger, wasn't able to be there due to WORK! Hallelujah, he is not a kept man! Thank you, Jesus, Roger is a provider not only of what is needed but also a man who will do what has to be done to make his woman's dream come true. We support each other, and if he could've been there, he would've. My heart missed him, my mind knew he missed me.


Bravotv.com: What was your first impression of all the ladies?
DM: My first impressions of the ladies…
Cynthia: Beauty and class doesn't fade
Claudia: She's stupid! LOL!
Kandi: Cool
Phaedra: Wasn't she Bobby Brown's lawyer?
Porsha: ?
Kenya: Bet you won't forget me now! LOL!


Bravotv.com: Were you disappointed that all the ladies left when the video didn’t work? Did you eventually get it to play?
DM: My video didn't play, I was a bit disappointed, but having been in the industry for this long, I know sh-- happens. You roll with the hand given to you, and you learn for the next time. Could the ladies have stayed? Sure. But if they weren't going to offer anything positive, it was probably best that they exited.
