Booty-leggin' - Ep 12

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor is really into the idea of Housewives moonshine.

The booty business between Kenya and Phaedra has ballooned into a much bigger battle -- enter Kenya's "Stallion Booty." So if you thought there was a lot of booty talk last week, get ready, because we've only just begun.

No. 3 - Spellbound

We did get one welcome break from the workout war when Ayden showed up for Cynthia's runway event ready to w-a-l-k. So long as there are no t-o-y-s to distract him. The plan is to use g-u-m-m-i b-e-a-r-s to get him to the end of the runway and back you see.

But seriously, was anyone else astounded by how spontaneous yet easily sustained this spelling repartee between Cynthia and Phaedra was?

No. 2 - Booty-leggin'

As expected, it was pretty awkward when Kenya announced to Phaedra that she too was making a workout video. And not just any workout video, a "stallion booty" workout video. In Phaedra's eyes Kenya is bootleggin' and she is not pleased. I have to admit I liked her suggestion that Kenya come up with a moonshine brand instead, only because I love the idea of a Housewives moonshine brand.

Also was anyone else waiting for them to have a booty move off at the event? It kind of seemed like that was where it was going, an impromptu booty battle.
No. 1 - The Butt of the Matter

My favorite moment of the week was by far Kenya and Kandi's conversation at Kenya's production studio. Why? Because they were arguing about the booty videos IN FRONT OF A GIANT BOOTY STRUCTURE. You know, just to subtly remind you what the episode is all about. I'm really shocked they were able to remain straight-faced the whole time.

Side Note: Loved how the carpenter guy who was giving them a tour halfway through their talk was like, "Yeah, I'm going to go, let me know when you're done." Smart move.
Next week it looks like Kenya's got a little trick up her sleeve for Phaedra.

Cynthia: Who Can Stay Mad at Someone Forever?

Cynthia Bailey shares her reaction to Phaedra Parks not accepting her apology.

Bravotv.com: How did you get through that long flight to Manila?
Cynthia Bailey: I watched four movies, had breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner twice, read five magazines, slept for five hours, and talked Kandi's ear off whenever she was awake. Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure I drank a bottle of wine as well.
And just when I thought that I couldn't take it anymore, we still had nine hours left to go!

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Phaedra seemed unwilling to move forward with you?
CB: Apologies aren't exactly falling out of the sky amongst these ladies. You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting an apology from one of them. So when someone offers an apology in hopes of moving on, it is usually considered to be a positive thing. So why not address the issue, have the conversation, apologize if it is necessary, and move on? Who has the energy to stay mad at someone forever? Not me, I am moving on regardless.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like the vibe changed for the better after everyone talked through their issues at dinner?
CB: Yes I did. We had an amazing time in the Philippines. It was one of my favorite cast trips, outside of Anguilla when Peter and I renewed our marriage vows.
