The BAM! Squad

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...

I like the addition of Marlo to the show........1. she is crazy, 2. she talks a lot, 3. she has a lot of fashions......lol.....just sayin! But for real, she has made the show more interesting. I think that she should definately replace Kim. Sheree needs to get it together. She hasn't been looking so fabulous, lately. She was wrong for throwing Kandi under the bus in Africa but I guess she has to start some kind of mess in order to stay on the show. Phaedra and NeNe keep me laughing. Cynthia, I like you but you are coming off a bit 2-faced. You know you totally started that arguement between Sheree and Marlo. It was so messy for you to go back and tell them that Sheree had invited you. Kandi, Im keeping my fingers crossed that a good man finds you. You are so genuine and quick to call people out on their mess. You cool with me!

My blog I am tall 5'12" but I like the smalls. Cynthia needs to quit telling! Man she can't deal with problems with Peter yet keep drama with others. Ok it is bad enough everyone think black women are trouble, so quit saying it Kandi. Are white women trouble when they take your money like Kim. And please admire Phadra's marriage. They are in love and equals not like kim trapping a young rich guy to marry her. Kim tried it with her last 2 girls and those men got out fast. Love Kim's smart daughters. And Kim's dad Joe is a pimp. Sheree needs couseling, she and Nene have a love/ hate thing( remember 1st year)?? The other housewives are a mess and not criticized its entertainment!

I love the Housewives, all of them: Orange County, Beverly Hills, New York, Atlanta and New Jersey. But, one thing I don't understand; most of these women are divorced, shacked up, or just all alone; so how are they considered "House Wife". Break it down for me.

I love this show, the best of all the housewives shows!! Love the turn the show is taking. The trip to the motherland was a great idea. Looking forward to seeing how things go there and all the drama that will unfold...lol Team Nelo, Nene and marlo. Love that have become friends. sheree is a little to phoney for me and is a major hater! What is that sheree actually does on the show besides hate.

There's a rumour that Sweety no longer works for Kim. I hope this is true, because it is an abusive and thankless relationship.

Well the Africa trip should turn out interesting , there are some strong personalities there. I knew between NeNe and Marlo, something would start up. I've got to tell you, it is riveting television. Miss Phaedra is the best, and her husband is sweet. Sheree and Kandi are cool, and Kim has found love and happiness. You cant help but be happy for her. Cynthia? I still have worries about her situation. I hope he treats her the way she deserves. By the way did it ever occur to Peter, how young and hard his wife had to work, and learn things the hard way, just like we all did. And she is still working, it annoys me that all we see of him is standing around criticizing her. Secure men historically are loving and supportive of thier women. Nothing more attractive than a man who is devoted to his woman, and don't care who knows it! That means showing some damm support.

I am sick about Kandi always talking about sex and sex toys. Her mother need 2 stay at home with her sister or with her grand daugther.If thay have a party she is there .Going over 2 dinner at some of the girls house she is there most of the time . Last week she was wrong. I use 2 like Kandi But now I don't know. Phaedra All she talk about is sex.Sex is something you should keep 2 your self.Even if sex sales .I like Peter he tell it like it is. even if he is wrong.Cynthia I don't know what 2 say about her,right now.

I wish thay would take Sweetie off the show . I don't like the way Kim talk 2 her. I don't know why Bravo . Let it be that way.And why Sweetie take that mass.I would have 2 let kim Know. Kim Is not a lady with that baf mouth she got.What do Troy think his son is going 2 be saying . She is theonly white woman on the show.And the only one with a mad . Sheree is a user.I don't like the way she always get things 4 herself Big cars and trips. she don't miss out on nothing.

I think that the Atlanta crew needs a reality check as to who helped them to reach their success, in regards to this show. How come they don't blog? I think Nene is full of drama and absurdity. Marlo seems cool enough. She seems like an upfront person. Is it me or is Kandi a real back bitter? Since she has joined the show her "horns" tend to show more and more each season. I don't think she is a loyal person and she would not be someone I would trust. Actually I would have to throw Cynthia in that mix as well. These two women are one way with one group and another with a different group. Needless to say Phaedra is AWESOME!!! Her sense of humor is on point and she does not take herself too seriously.

I'm just wondering where Marlo came from. I think she will soon be a problem in the Housewife Reality" and soon her and NeNe will also bump heads.

I don't understand why all of the blogs from these ladies are so far behind. I think the show has gone to most of these ladies heads!

Why don't these ladies keep up with their blogs? I guess the have become too important in their own minds.

I'm liking Marlo...so far. I don't see the attraction to Nene. Mckencie calls her pacifier nene. Why aren't the housewives bloging. What's going on? Did I miss something?

Wasn't Phaedra who introduced Marlo to the group (along with Charles Grant) to stir up crap with Nene. Well it look like her plan backfired....lol

This probably won't get posted....but,how come Atlanta housewives never blog?? Aren't they supposed to blog weekly?

I can't believe that someone would be so tacky as to invite another person along on someone else planned trip. Why they even bother with Nene, I can't even imagine. She is such a rude woman. to quote her "when I enter a room, I own it" Please, so does Big Ang. LOL

Please tell me why Kim is a part of this Housewives show. She has always seemed so out of place. There is no woman of colour on the other housewives show. What is her purpose?

@ Divajfree, I thought I was the only one who thought that.

I must say that NeNe's new friendship with Marlo is very unexpected. These two have become BFF's very quickly, a bit too quickly if you ask me. I mean, a lunch date seems normal. Even inviting NeNe over to Marlo's home seems natural. But how to they go from that to "You should join us in Africa for 10 days!" ??? I mean, they barely know each other. NeNe was crazy not to inform the other ladies that she'd invited Marlo along. I thought Phaedra organized this trip? Apparently, NeNe is in charge of who gets to come along. Honestly, NeNe is the last person I thought needed back up. She has never had a problem standing up for herself before.

If you invited a certain group of people to go on a trip, you would think that for any extra people to go, it would be nice to ask or let the event planner know of any additional people going on a trip with your group.

I like Marlo. Nene would have been alone on the Africa trip. Cynthia is there and they are friends but she isn't strong enough to put up with the shorts. Love NENE and all.

It's really great to read you're blog, lovin' your take on this episode! Frankly, I'm looking quite forward to seeing NeNe coming to Sherees defense next week. I feel so sad that there has been such a split in friendships this season. Call me crazy, but I love when the ladies get together to laugh and enjoy eachothers company! Both RHOA and RHOBH have had ME stressed and holding my breath for the next crazy mess. I live that plenty in my own life, thank you very much! Also, I must say how simply refreshing it is to see a blog on this page with a CURRENT date! Part of being such a fan of the Real Housewives, for me, is checking back here each week to see what everyone has to say and reading the comments of other viewers. I miss the ladies! (No offense to you Andrew!) At any rate, thanks again for your input, I'll be watching for you in the future!

I also like Marlo, an would love to see her replace the irrelevant Sheree, or maybe even Kim since she has a spin-off.

I like Marlo and I must say all that back talking about her 7 arrests is in her past and all of us arent Southern belle's like Phaedra so good coming up for Marlo. Kandi is just a stuck up hypocrite, who doesnt know if she is on the left or the irght or maybe she is insecure and neds to play both sides of the fence

i really don't understand why all the women seem to hate marlo? her past is behind her and she seems to have descent attitude about life which some of the other women could use!!! :) so far i like her and am glad she is on the show.

Nene had the nerve inviting Marlo without letting the others know; who does she think she is? That's just another one of her ways to start trouble and oh does she love trouble. I'm so sick and tired of hearing how real she keeps things because if that's what she calls real then she is missing more brain cells than I thought. She doesn't have to worry about getting kicked off the show because there wouldn't be any drama if she weren't on it.

As an outside observer it seems NeNe is so over being on this show. I think she "hangs on" because of the money and little else. Sheree still seems so bitter about life and I am not sure how she is funding her lifestyle. Kandi is becoming a mess. I mean sex toys to writing songs for a country singer. She is all over the place! Her poor Mom has made herself the offical mother figure of the group and no one really wants her around. Phaedra is a hoot but it is obvious she runs that marriage. Cynthia is such a question mark for me. I mean she is in a marriage that doesn't seem healthy, invested heavily in two businesses that may or may not succeed, and waivers on who she is friends with. Then you have Kim who is relying on a man for her money and happiness....and the fakeness never ends with her. Geez..maybe this show needs some new "real" wives!

I like the NeNe & Marlo combo. If Nene went by herself it would have been those 3 making snides remarks about her and Cynthia.

Nene's friendship with Marlo is the most set-up, contrived bit of "Housewife reality" I've seen to date. Nene can't get along with anyone so Bravo bought her a friend.

Can't wait until Sheree goes off the show. She is really serving NO purpose.

ditto Andrew--It feels good watching Nene bond with Marlo. The "talls" need each other to fight the opinionated short trolls. I am liking Marlo more and more. I don't see her as a loose cannon, I see her like a woman who stands up for herself and doesn't allow anyone to treat her like crap.
