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: Porsha Has Never Apologized

Kenya Moore opens up about the therapy session and why she's moved past the situation with Porsha Williams.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like progress was made at the therapy session?
Kenya Moore: I definitely feel some progress was made. Change doesn’t occur overnight, but I believe if you are willing to listen, that leads to an understanding. From there, you can only try if your desire is to move forward.

Bravotv.com: Did you think that you and Porsha could genuinely move forward?
KM: Unfortunately, you can’t keep pointing the blame at someone else and never take any responsibility for your own actions. She has never once apologized to me for physically attacking me or any other verbal offense over the years, and that shows me she is simply incapable of moving forward. I did months ago, and my life changed for the better.


Bravotv.com: Were you excited about going to Manila?
KM: I’m always excited to travel.

The Millionaire Matchmaker
I want to thank the fans for watching my episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker. Initially I didn’t take it seriously, but when Patti and I started to speak, she wasn’t coming from a place of blame... She came from a place of love, and I believed she really wanted to help me. I had to look at why I can’t commit to the men who want to marry me. Patti was so kind towards me that it allowed me to attract the right man into my life. I was so overwhelmed with the outpour of positive and kind remarks that I cried reading them. Everyone deserves love, and I can’t question my journey, I just have to believe. My faith has been restored and I thank Patti and Cynthia and most importantly God for allowing me to grow in order to receive His blessings.
