The BAM! Squad

Episode 12: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

Jan 30, 20120

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.

I feel sorry for Marlo. She is desperately seeking attention and will do anything to get it. Regardless of her background she brings"street on the scene wherever she goes, and has no reservations about embarrassing people as she did to with Kim at the party concerning "poppy". In Africa, I was shocked that she stooped so low in her language and screaming at the top of her voice, also in demanding a gift at breakfast and to be invited to the party. She would do well to STUDY her book on etiquette. The only time she got out of promoting herself was when she was with the children in Africa. She can have good expressions if she just takes her face out of the mirror and thinks about others. I hope she changes, for her own sake, long-term. I hope this is the last I have seen of that lawless behavior from those who took part in it. i do not believe it represents "real" housewives.

I've been trying to post on Phaedra's page to no avail. So I guess I will post here. I can't take it anymore Can someone please give these viewers a dictionary so they can look up the word classy. Because to describe Phaedra, Khandi or Sheree as such, is laughable. That's all i keep reading and it can't be further from the truth. Phaedra took the first look at her newborn and said, "eww, gross". NOT Classy. Pheadra also delights in watching a man pleasure himself with his mouth. NOt Classy !!! Please Stop !!! These women are not classy nor sophisticated, as Sheree describes herself. Really Sheree ??? I think NOT

I have nothing to say about this episode because even the CAST didn't care enough to say anything about it. PLEASE Bravo, cut these prom queens off and revamp the Atlanta cast just like you are doing for NY. When they are too important to blog - or address their fans in any way - than they are too important for me to to give a crap about. I don't even want to watch this show anymore since I only get a half perspective of what happened. As it is - Bravo not doing anything about cast not blogging is causing cast from other installments to follow suit. Notice how much Taylor has blogged this year, Kim Richards... Even OC last year was starting to fall off on the blogs. But Atlanta this year has gone for broke. I won't watch at all next year if you can't do something about the blogging.

Watching that argument between Sheree and Marlo was sickening. Both lose complete control of themselves so easily; we have seen this from Sheree time and time again (and Nene!). It is embarrassing. If you really want to be effective in an argument, keep your cool, use your logic. I really think that Bravo is overestimating how much viewers enjoy watching that kind of uncivilized brawl. Their values come out in these instances -- they are always just shooting back and forth accusations and assertions about their wealth. Talk about self-worth built on a house of cards. Sad little display.

I think that Marlo is trying to gain some fame and is showing out to do so! She is completely irrelevent to the other ladies! So why is she upset that they are not breaking their neck to be her friend. Stick to being a high priced whore because ignorant and interesting are to different things. Cynthia is a sneaky little gullable somebody who doesn't have a back bone. I love Kandi because she is always just herself. Phadra I didn't like her last season but I think now she is starting to be herself. Sharae should live within her means just like Phadra told her if you need child support so bad how did you afford that new Porsche. NeNe naturally loves drama but even she knows Marlo acted a plum fool in Africa. And Kim I don't blame you for not going because people are really wolves in sheeps clothing. They pretend they are happy for you and they are your friends but they are really wishing that you will fail. I hope you all get it together.

Cynthia wasn't wrong in going back and telling NeNe and Marlo what happened. It was good for a laugh, and that's the only reaction expected. NeNe and Cynthia are friends. I would expect my friend to tell me, as Cynthia did, and I would expect my friend to react as NeNe did. Rules of The Friendship Code is that what we tell each other will go no farther and/or to protect our confidentiality at all cost, even if its about us. Both NeNe and Cynthia gave Marlo too much credit, because she violated. At the same time, what she told Sharee was the truth. Invited or not, she is there, and she could have and/or should have invited her when she really didn't have a reason for not, and after she extended the invitation to Cnythia. Basically, Sharee handled it wrong from the beginning. No one would expect her to invite NeNe, and if she did, no one would expect NeNe to except. It's not her job to find or decide that NeNe needs a babysitter and who that babysitter will be. When Marlo called her out, she simply should have said, "You're right, I wasn't thinking, and you're welcome to come."

I am really surprised that Bravo would allow Marlo on the show knowing that she has a VIOLENT criminal record. If she attacks someone on the show then Bravo could be held liable because they knew of her past; I don't know how this got past your legal team.

Marlo and Sheree were hilarious! Marlo is the invited guest from hell. I'm sure after the "MarShe" confrontation, NeNe not only regrets inviting her, but realizes that they her and Marlo are not on the same level. At the same time, as strange as it sounds, Sharee and Marlo have the makings of becoming good friends; they have a lot in common--they even speak the same language (during their argument, they reverted back into their native tongue). The difference in NeNe, and Marlo and Sharee is that NeNe is straight up, but she's not going to wallow in the mud with you whereas, Sharee and Marlo will. Marlo loves to create drama, and Sharee loves to be a part of the drama. They feed off one another, so it's hard for them to stop.

For those of you who don't know, if Sheree told her host that she was bringing two people then that is how many people he planned for and was expecting. It is a case of terrible manners to show up with more people than the host or hostess is prepared for.

I have to say that Marlo and Sheree's fight was disturbing. But Sheree has gotten on my nerve she brings nothing to the show. Every episode she's arguing with someone over not paying her share. Its time to clean house on that show starting with her, Kim and please get rid of Cynthia. All these women have no real reason to represent ATL. OH and Kandi is a sneak and two faced it. Marlo is a mess but her putting Kandi and mean Sheree in there place is priceless. Sheree is the mean girl and angry. No man, No money, Child support problems and menopause add that up and its a spells angry sweaty Sheree. CALL IT LIKE YOU SEE IT.

Seriously, do you all think that Phaedra actually planned this trip? I could believe she was "spearheading" it amongst the ladies, but I have a hard time thinking that it was just her when you consider this is a TV SHOW with producers, cameramen, etc...It reminds me of the Countess and Moracco. Can't you just picture them negotiating their fares with Shatner and Priceline?.. Also, I don't buy the "shocked" Smalls at the airport and then to blame it on NeNe given all the planning needed by the show to get to Africa, and that she doesn't even know Marlo that well.

I think Sheree was foul, per usual, but Marlo went too far, too. Made for great crazy TV though. The commentary by the other ladies was hilarious! Kandi's comment about the cartoon voices was the best!!

Although I LOVE the show, in my opinion all of the ladies are over the top. But I guess money can buy anything. Those ladies must get paid quite a bit to act the way they do on national TV. Not to mention they must like the stardom that comes with acting like they do. No matter how they act, I will watch until the LAST episode.

Honestly, does everyone think Marlo would be able to attend the trip to Africa without the producer's permission? They probably didn't tell the girls but the producers and not Ne Ne are probably the reason Marlo went.

Why do you keep most of these ladies when they are too lazy to even write an updated blog? Kick their butts off the show and hire some housewives that appreciate a pay check!!

Marlo's use of the "f" word was unacceptable, but I have read a number of interviews where she apologized humbly for that indescretion. Why couldn' Sheree just make mention of Marlo's 80 year old man! Why did he have to be the 80 year old white man! I found that derogatory. Is she a racist? Does she have something against white people? However, with all the drama rhoa REMAINS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GUILTY PLEASURES!!!

I love Marlo on the show! Nene has taken a back-seat to all the shenanigans. Understandably so, since she has to be more concerned about her image these days. I enjoy seeing NeNe snickering in the background...enjoying Marlo's antics. This show is nothing but laughs. All of these ladies are strong-will and can hold there own. They can dish it and take it. You cant bully these gals. Funny-as-heck.

~Well, I love Sheree, so that's that. I guess I would have to linep with Kandi, Phaedra and Sheree. But I must say, Marlo is really entertaining, and so typical Atlanta. If you live there, you know what I mean. All of that aside, I am waiting for the fight between Nene and Marlo, and it's sure to come, no doubt about it. I just hope that no one is seriously injured when it goes down. I think Nene will learn that there's a lot more to Marlo than she thinks; and this little "friendship" she thinks she has going with her will ultimately be her Waterloo! Missing Kroy, too! And Kim is certainly my girl this season. They really need their own show,(just a thought, Andy). Actually wouldn't mind seeing a show all about Phaedra.......just love that girl!

NeNe - I am loving her this season. What a change. Keep us guessing! Kandi - Love her earthiness and that southern accent. She can cross-over to country if she wants. Sheree - She really does need to read Marlo's little book of etiquette. Miss Wannabee. She can learn a thing or two from Marlo - especially about men. Phaedra - Miss Southern Hospitality, Miss Southern Belle. Not! What a piece of work. Marlo - Visceral, gutsy. She knows that 80 is the new 60. Please try to keep her out of jail this season. Cynthia - Don't have a clue. Kim - Question Mark.

I thought I was in a high school stairwell. NeNe, I still don't understand why you invited Marlo. She doesn't know the other ladies that well, you don't know her that well. Why did you invite her - did you want what happen to happen. I don't understand why Marlo was upset with Sheree? didn't she read the ettiquette book. didn't it tell her anything about going places without being invited, even if NeNe invited her, it wasn't NeNe trip and why didn't NeNe tell Phaedra that Marlo was coming? - If Phaedra wasn't a lady she could of told Marlo to find her a place to stay. Please tell Marlo to read the etiquette book front to back, also the bible it will help her a great deal, and if she said I read it already tell to do it again. I love the show but I don't know how long I can watch what has been going on. Please ladies be blessed ladies

I don't understand why Marlo was sooooooo upset that Sheree did not invite her. After all Marlo CRASHED the trip in the first place. Talk about lack of "etiquette" on Marlo's part. One thing that is evident Sheree has "huevos" as she is the only one that had NeNe walk away from the arguement and she hung tough with rough around the edges Marlo If you notice, no one has ever walked away from NeNe. Even Kandi walked away(although, I don't believe that Kandi is afaid of her). Marlo may have gorgeous material items, but she is clearly WalMart underneath it all. When I first saw Marlo, I was rooting for her and felt that her past is the past and that she surely has learned. But she can really be mean and beyond sharp tongued. I do believe that Sheree should be honest about her finances and let use see her overcome her finfncial obstacles. Even if she doesn't, GO TEAM SHEREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. Cynthia- You had to have known that sharing your invite with NeNe and Marlo would cause drama. You're not as innocent as I thought you were. 2. NeNe-Yes, that is how you look when you are in your 'drama mode'. And why do you always have to bring along 'back-up' when traveling? 3. Sheree- Make up your mind, either they are invited or not! I can understand why you wouldn't want to invite NeNe, but to invite the others without inviting her shows a sure sign of 'got you back'. 4.Kandi-Stay neutral, don't take any sides. Remember a dog that brings a bone, also takes a bone. 5.Phaedra- I gained respect for you on this trip. 6.Marlo- Everybody has a past, don't let them beat you over the head with that. But be careful that you're not fighting someone else's battle. Let NeNe do her own. And if you're in it for the money....I ain't mad at you girl.

None of you seem to get it. This is a GROUP trip, hence, you don't exclude anyone. The invitation to Sheree's dinner at her friends home should have been extended to all the cast mates. It's a mood point that Marlo wasn't invited by Phadra. She's there now. Sheree was surely being messy by inviting Cynthia last minute. Cynthia should have told her friends. You all should save the Cynthia started it comments, when in fact Sheree started it and her behavior certainly wasn't classic. All the negative comments about Marlo's past is just ridiculous. All the housewives have an unsavory past as I'm sure most of you do.

i agree why would cynthia be running back and forth making mess.she ant had no right opening her mouth.let sharee tell marlo and nene why they was not invited.sharee is a mess maker i don't like her.her ex-husband told her right.she cryin for child support when she runnin all over the world with the other clowns like she paid.this show tells me you can buy a purse for thousands of dollars but still dont make you smart.women yall make a broke woman like me feel so good.even broke,i kno how to act like a woman with respect for my self.no matter where i go.get out of africa cause yall are too stupid to be with them people.while yall wastein money.them poor people are hungry.its so sad.

Cynthia should be ashamed of her self for causing drama between the talls and smalls! It's been along time since high school so it's time to grow up!!! I was so upset that Peter had the nerve to say that the only reason didnt go to Africa was because there are too many BLACK people there. What a complete racist thing to say! Shame on you Peter-better check youself!

Has anyone notice how Candy is such an instigator. Whenever she has a disagreement with NeNe she some what seems to pull Phadre in it as well. At first, I really liked Candy. Now, Candy wants be nothing more but to be the spotLIGHT. BRAVO fans how many of you miss LISA and ED? BRAVO I miss Lisa can you bring her back

Phaedra is to hilarious. The other ladies may not feel the need to blog because Bravo would edit their comments and perhaps they weren't happy about that.

Marlo was so wrong for first of all getting the bigger room, she should have taken the leftovers. Dunno why no one addressed that issue.

I like the show, because of my curiousity of what the rich people do for fun. I am disappointed; why do people act in a childish and hateful way towards each other when you all should be grateful that you have been blessed with money to do all that you would like to do and not worry about finances. So sad! The trip to Africa should be a joyous experience for all. Not wasting energy on nonsense. Very disappointed! All of the women talk about each other. Then, why be around each other? Yes, I realize it is just a show and it is all about the money and exposure. Have we forgetten about all the people whose backs we ride on still today for their sacrifices in helping us achieve success in America? NeNe, you were wrong for inviting Marlo, without mentioning it to Phadera. That was disrespectful. NeNe, you claim you do not like drama! You could have fooled me. I thought more of you. Then, again it does not really matter to you; your getting paid, that is what it is all about; money.

Okay the fight between Sheree and Marlo went way overboard. But my thing is I am sick and tired of the some of the HW talking about Marlo's background. It's not like she is trying to hide and a person's past is not everything. LIG, so what she has been to jail that's her problem and not yours! Now Sheree was just wrong, if you invited Cynthia at the last minute you could have invited the others!!! You are grown woman so act like one and futhermore who cares who paid for what, its hers either way it goes. WORRY ABOUT YOU PAY FOR YOURS!!! Nene is my favorite HW and I am glad that she stepped in and became the peace maker, You Did That Girl!!

I AM JUST GLAD THAT NENE SEES HOW SHE LOOKS WHEN SHE WAS ACTING LIKE MARLO!! NENE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS SO SHE IS GETTING THERE GIVE HER TIME. MS CYNTHIA WELL YOU KNOW THE SO CALLED QUIET ONES ARE THE SNEAKIEST ONES! FOR SHEREE, SOMETIMES PEOPLE CAN JUST PUSH YOU AND YOU JUST HAVE TO DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO, DON'T LET THAT MOOSE GET UNDER YOUR SKIN AGAIN. GOOD JOB PHAEDRA FOR PUTTING THE TRIP TOGETHER, AND TRYING TO GIVE THESE LADIES A MEMORABLE TIME, BUT AS YOU NOW KNOW, YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HOOD MONKEYS OUT THE HOOD!! NENE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING WHEN SHE INVITED THAT MOOSE, BECAUSE SHE IS TIRED OF BEING THE ONE TO ACT A FOOL ALL THE TIME!

Sheree is just the worst. With or with out Marlo rudely surprising everybody by going on the trip Sheree is the one with bad manner not planning on inviting Cyntha and Nene to the dinner. She was just asking for trouble. I can't stand her. I bet she must have felt stupid watching herself on this episode. Even though Marlo was making faces Sheree looked like a clown.

I have to ask since when did using the F word become so derogatory when america uses the N word profoundly. Sheree was classless & wrong & Marlo was too hood by addressing Sheree's ignorance. The argument was not needed these ladies need to grow up

Can you please tell me WHY these women never blog?? I thought that was part of their contract, they have to blog about the episode? I just think it's selfish on their part as we the viewer like to hear from their perspective. Take a look at Lisa Vanderpump, she just blogged after being abused on the reunion! Thanks in advance, Ellen

Everybody Knows..... it is in bad taste to attend any event uninvited. Not only does it put the Hostess on the spot. ;It makes the guests feel uncomfortable. Marlo is a Hot mess. The argument was foolish. They both dropped names of every designer and departments stores on the northern hemisphere ;and has anyone taken note that the only really wealthy women are the ones who live in beverly hills. The others are just "playing" rich.

It's unanimous! Cynthia was the instigator in that stupid fight; so immature! Although, we shouldn't be surprised because she started RHOA with a stupid "friendship letter" to NeNe remember? She needs to grow up and fast!

I was disgusted with Marlo and her foul, hateful language. I too hope the F word is addressed.

Please don't let Marlo on the show. She has no redeeming qualities. That's harsh but true. What can she offer? A bunch of foul, hateful language?? What an embarrassment the other night. I'm Black and I thought I'd jump through the tv when she dropped the F word. What a nerve!!!!????

And Ms. Sheree, don't stoop to that level. Keep your mouth shut, walk away and save face. Marlo is not worth it and you ladies didn't look entertaining in my book.

The "Face Off" between Sheree and Marlo was the "FUNNIEST" thing I have seen in a long, long time. Marlo needs professional help. Nobody decides that they need to confront someone about something that they were never suppose to have been a part of in the first place. My! My! people will do anything to get notice. Why go on a show like this if you can not show the world that you are really not what people think you are. NeNe did not want things to get out of control because she was the one to invite this lady, and with such a criminal record behind her, Ms.Marlo could really get in trouble. Ms. Marlo is trying to find her a show to be on. Sorry darling if you are given a part on this show, not only me but, a whole "BOATLOAD" of people will call it a day, and will not be watching this show again.

Good grief, PATTY P. Did you pay attention to what you wrote? To quote you:

"If you stand on your soap box and ask for same sex marriage, I have the same right to stand on my soap box and say that I am against same sex marriage. EQUALITY is what everyone believes they are entitled too. Let's make that a fact!!!!" (posted by Patty P. 1/31/12)

Yes, that's the point: EQUALITY should be made a fact. Fighting for EQUALITY means fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL, REGARDLESS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION. What you actually seem to be arguing for is freedom of speech--and you have it, which is why you get to post your comment here without being censored. However, others have the freedom to speak their opposition to you without being censored. We all have the right to our individual opinions and the freedom to speak those opinions--as well as the freedom to disagree with each other's opinions. (To return to your example: Alexis from RHOC has the right to her opinion--and Andy Cohen has the right to disagree.) THAT WOULD BE EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

Furthermore, supporting equality in terms of same sex marriage isn't "politically correct"; it is, simply, CORRECT.

And, yes, I am Christian--one who also appreciates and supports the separation of church and state.

God bless us, one and all--and God bless America!

I don't know, Marlo may end up being the reason I quit watching. With NeNe obviously inviting her to cause trouble, and then looking like a fool trying to break up a fight between her and Sheree. What did she expect? Bringing Marlo along she got just what she wanted....DRAMA!

I can not stand Cynthia. She started that argument. I don't know why Sheree argued with Marlo. Marlo is just a hot ghetto mess. Sheree is grown she can invite who she wants to invite.

I think Phaedra is the best housewife on the show. She holds herself in such a sophisticated manner and she doesn't involve herself with those caddy catfights that the viewers look forward to. Marlo needs to go. Is she really pushing etiquette down everyone's throats? She must have learned that from prison. Also I'm sure she didn't want to share bathrooms with the other ladies because she got sick of sharing while she was doing time. I wouldn't want to share either Marlo so I understand you on that part. One of the etiquette rules that Marlo forgot to mention is that it isn't proper to invite yourself to an event. That's plain tacky. And NeNe continues to invite these hoodlums to these getaways. She invited her friend Diana to Florida to stir the pot, and now Marlo to cause more drama. NENE you're a big girl (literally) you can hold your own. Stop bringing tag alongs!

Happy Gran

I was personally offended by the Marlo/Sheree debacle. Marlo wasn't invited on the trip to begin with. I know Bravo producers thought it would be WONDERFUL to add a bit of drama and chaos to the script for ratings. A trip to the motherland would be a blessing to anyone with African heritage to embrace the experience with reverence, awe and excitement. Phaedra was disrespected by Ne Ne who invited Marlo #1, and rightly so, should have sought to act as peacemaker between to end it. I can only hope that the next two episodes, now that Bravo has teased the public, will provde us all with somethinng more representative of what cast members really witnessed on this journey.

I love how Pheadra is "appalled" by Marlo's record yet her husband gets a pass? Pot...meet kettle.

When the news of Marlo's arrest record was shared by Kandi, Phaedra did say that she did not want to comment on anyone's record because her husband had one. Phaedra is the most honest and likable person on this cast. So do you actually watch the show before you comment? Love, Love, Love Phaedra Parks!!! Team Phaedra
