What Ever Happened to Spark St. Jude?

Episode 18: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Say What?

The "black baby" drama continued (and hopefully came to an end) this week when Kim confronted Cynthia about her comments in South Africa. It was a little awkward to watch until Cynthia admitted in her interview that she didn't actually remember what she had said. Oops! But they were going on and on about it for a good five minutes! It kind of made the whole thing anti-climactic yet hilarious. Perhaps there is value in 'Wives telling other 'Wives what they're saying behind their backs -- that way at least someone knows what you've been saying in case you've forgotten.

No. 2 - The Royal Wedding Dedication

If there's one thing Phaedra has really driven home this season, it's that she loves pomp and circumstance, whether it's at a funeral, a birthday, or her son's dedication ceremony. And nothing says pomp and circumstance quite like royalty, so Phaedra went ahead and booked a photo shoot fit for the royal family in honor of Ayden's dedication. And she certainly looked like the queen of Atlanta in that red, leopard-print dress. I only wish she had gone with one of those over-the-top headpieces she was trying on to really drive home the "black royalty meets Michelle Obama" look. (Side note: If Phaedra was a drag queen in another life as the stylist suggested, I want to travel back in time and meet her).

I do have to admit that Ayden was adorable in his little tux on the throne. Hopefully these pictures added that "touch of elegance" Phaedra was going for.

But most importantly, what happened to Spark St. Jude of the notorious pickle photo shoot?!

No. 1 - Wigs are Not Microwavable

The most valuable lesson we learned from this episode was by far Kim's harrowing tale of flaming wigs. Evidently one should never microwave a wig. Who knew?! Kim popped it in a plastic bag for a deep conditioning treatment, turned it on, and cooked herself a wig flambe. If only that moment had been captured on tape. Sigh. Perhaps that was why she hadn't used the oven at all, the incident of the burning wig had scarred her for life.

Next week Phaedra continues her funeral home education by meeting with a grieving family. Or so she thinks...

Kenya's Not Interested in Roger Bobb

Kenya Moore was glad she and Demetria McKinney were able to clear the air about the Roger Bobb situation. 

MAMA DRAMA

It saddens me to see Kandi still going through such heartache with her mother, and blended and extended family. This should be the happiest time of her life, but it has been overshadowed by the constant infighting. I hope for peace for Kandi and that she can focus on extending her family with a new little one soon. She deserves it.


I thought it was a very touching scene to see Kandi be so kind to her cousin and offer advice to Phaedra on how to deal with her children and incarceration. I loved his advice about being truthful. My heart goes out to all children being separated from their parents.

WOMAN TO WOMAN

Women are taught to be in competition with each other most notably in relation to men. A business meeting becomes suspicious, a compliment becomes flirtation, and a handshake becomes a threatening, aggressive takeover.


I’ve known Roger Bobb in a professional capacity for well over five years having worked with him as an actor in various productions. I hold him in high regard, as he is a talented and focused producer. Additionally, I have known him to date several of my good girlfriends; therefore I have never considered dating him myself. It was a surprise to me, and the world, to learn that he has been dating Demetria for over seven years (off and on). She stated herself that they were secretive and no one knew about them.


I sympathize with her in that situation, because a woman in love wants to proclaim her love to the masses so that not only other women are aware that her man is taken, but that he only has eyes for her as well. Demetria was denied that opportunity because of their situation. I was proud of Roger for claiming her as his lady. I also wanted to put Demetria’s mind at ease by being truthful about my intentions with Roger. I have none! We were able to talk like two adults and move on. With that said, I’m a hopeless romantic and am in love with love. Eight years is a long time and I wish them all the best.

MIDNIGHT TRAIN TO...

Congrats to NeNe for selling out her “fashions” on HSN at midnight. And I’d like to extend an early Christmas gift to her as well. I have arranged to have one of my hair and makeup people do a makeover on her gratis. And Moore Hair Care samples are in the mail to help NeNe grow out her own natural hair. Go to kenyamoore.com for details. I am also still hopeful that NeNe makes the $20,000 donation to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation as she promised. Now that would be an amazing gift to the children of Detroit who need all the help they can get!

BACK TO THE FUTURE

I’m excited to get back to what I do best, which is acting and producing. Prior to RHOA I was a working actor for well over twenty years. I’m excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. Stay tuned for MOORE to come! My Sheen Magazine cover shoot featured on the show turned out to be amazing! On stands December 23, 2014 please get a copy and support this positive and uplifting publication!


Celebrity Apprentice premiere airs Sunday January 4, 2015 at 9/8c right after an all new episode of #RHOA.


This is a wonderful time of year and I wish you all a very safe, blessed, and joyful Holiday. May you be surrounded my love, light, and peace.
