Ep 3: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks Kim should have popped out for a performance during Kenya and Porsha's fight.

New friends, new hobbies, new experiences -- it was Housewives without borders in Atlanta this week. Although some things never change, like the fighting and the fact that no one can remember Kenya is Miss USA not Miss America. More on that later. Let's look back at the top three moments from the episode.

No. 3 - The NeNe Underground

Part of NeNe's new life as an actress involves coming to New York. And as Cynthia points out, you can't always rely on having a Towncar come pick you up to get around. (As someone who has desperately sought a cab to no avail many times in my life, I can't help but agree.) So Cynthia begins the "turn NeNe into a New Yorker" crusade. This evidently involves getting her to ride the subway and eat a hot dog. I can think of a few more valuable New York skills, but you have to start somewhere, right?

Of course NeNe shows up ready to ride in a staggeringly high pair of spiked Louboutins, much to Cynthia's disappointment. Undaunted by her perilous foot attire, Cynthia and NeNe continue on to the depths of the New York subway system, a great place for people watching. Unless of course you're two of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and one of you has a camcorder and the other is rocking some serious stilettos. All eyes were clearly on the ladies.

NeNe then meets some Glee fans on the train, who happen to be aspiring actors. It was cute, but I was more into all the Pride Parade participants from last week waving "I am very rich, bitch" shirts at her.

While she may have skipped the hot dog, I think NeNe may be on her way to becoming a jaded New Yorker. I'm thinking that could make a great RHONY crossover...

No. 2 - How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

Kenya is definitely like that friend you have who is extremely polarizing -- you get along with her, but she just rubs most of your other friends the wrong way. So after two weeks of Kenya/Cynthia conflict, Cynthia gets a rest and Porsha takes her place.

The lunch where they first meet is quite frankly one of the most awkward scenes I've viewed on a Housewives show in some time. These two do not mix. But nonetheless, Kenya agrees to come to Porsha's big charity event.

But it would almost have been better if they had never even gotten along at the lunch. Kenya was clearly not into Porsha's shindig, especially when she called her Miss America. This is so obviously her biggest pet peeve and something that's been going on ever since she was crowned. (In everyone else's defense, it is a bit confusing.) This is what sets her off to hightail it out of the party due to it being extremely cold (at least in Kenya's opinion). So while she defrosts in the parking lot and awaits the arrival of Lawrence, she decides it's just time to slink on out of there.

When Porsha comes out to let her know the food is out, things get almost as awkward as they were at the lunch. Kenya's not coming back in and decides to give Porsha some, um, constructive criticism by calling her event whack. Of course this enrages Porsha who then tells her not to come back inside. There's some back and forth in which Kenya tells Porsha to google her, at which point I was shocked that Kim Zolciak didn't descend from a helicopter and launch right into a rendition of Google Me. Missed opportunity!

Side Note: Kenya's friend is named Kanya. No further comment.
No. 1 - Hosed

Nurse, singer, dancer, and now... fire woman? Well kind of. Evidently Kim had a small fire emergency at her home, so Kroy decides she needs to learn how to handle a fire extinguisher. Needless to say, carrying around a heavy object is not Kim's favorite thing, but watching her mosey on over to the "fire" in her own good time was pretty delightful. Once she started spraying, I was a little concerned that she might use the entire contents (that's what it seemed like) thus leaving nothing for an actual fire.

And finally Kim tells Kroy she wants to play with his hose. Get a room you two!
Next week Phaedra may be in the doghouse due to a little butt dial snafu.

Has Kenya Found Love?

Kenya Moore reveals there may be a new man in her life (and dishes on the Claudia/Kordell situation).

Happy Birthday to Me!

This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.

Speaking on forgiveness, I was shocked to witness the conversation with Gregg and NeNe. She literally started the fight with Claudia, said the nastiest and vile things to her, and managed to attack me, Cynthia, and Demetria in one felled swoop. After which she contends that, “After you apologize that should be the end of it.” Really, girl? Do you ever watch yourself? How many times have I apologized to NeNe about the infamous couples' night? The “non invitation” to the masquerade ball? I’ve even apologized for all of the comments and reads across two seasons at the Tavern in Duluth! Was that the end of it for NeNe? Sadly, everyone already knows the answer.

BABY TIME

I think Todd and Kandi would have adorable children. Speaking from experience, chances of successful pregnancies for a woman rapidly decline after age 36. It’s brave of them to allow the world to see their journey to having a baby the same way I did. I wonder if Phaedra thinks Kandi has scrambled eggs as well? Point being, when people try to hurt you with statements that hit well below the belt, they often speak to groups of people, not just one person. No one should make fun of someone who experiences challenges having a baby or expanding their family. The great thing is Todd and Kandi are in a loving relationship and can take the journey together. There are many resources available to assist in family planning, and perhaps they can educate people along the way and encourage them to seek other options such as adoption. There are always children in need of a family and parents who are capable of loving and caring for them. It is a process and it will happen. #Godspeed

ROAD TRIP

OK, I hate road trips (especially with girls), but I wanted to support Cynthia and Peter by attending. My choices were few: A. Go and pull my hair out one strand at a time, or B. Get hyped in the car ride along the way to make the time go by faster. I think you know which one prevailed...LOL! I love laughing and being silly, and I’m downright goofy at times. What’s fun about hanging out with Cynthia and Claudia is I can be myself. Yes, it was silly to moon people or hang up on Phaedra, who appeared to just be making excuses about why she couldn’t go. Childish, YES! That was sort of the point. Let me live and laugh. I’m not hurting anyone with laughter.

BAR ONE

Congratulations to Peter and Kordell. Sports One Charlotte was a huge hit! I was polite to Kordell, because I have never had any real issue with him. I wasn’t surprised that Claudia knew him, because she’s a huge sports fan, but they have always just been friendly. I definitely saw some chemistry there. To the critics who think it’s messy to encourage them to date because he was married to a former Housewife, well, that’s just ludicrous. If Claudia was actually friends with his ex, perhaps I would have encouraged her to make sure she didn’t have an issue with it. But they were never friends and still aren’t.

It’s been over 2 years since they divorced, and clearly they have each moved on and are with other people (or sugar daddies). Speaking of sugar, I do not know if the rumors about Kordell are true or not. What I do know is what I see with my own two eyes is an articulate, gracious, and respectful man. Even after the divorce he refrained from trashing his ex. Granted, I’ve never been married to him nor dated him, so I have to rely on my knowledge and interaction with him now, not from someone determined to malign him.

Further, if you meet a man in his 40s who is single, he is likely divorced and someone’s ex. You never know where you find love. Frankly speaking, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Who are we to determine if Claudia and Kordell are better suited for each other? Only they can decide that being two grown consenting adults. My advice to those who always look for negativity in situations is that you always find what you are looking for. However, most times, it is actually what it is meant to be -- a friend wanting happiness for her girl.

DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION WINS $20,000

Thanks for all the love and support to my many supporters and team twirl and staff that keep me pushing forward! You support me and are always honest. And thank you for all the congratulations I received from my win on Celebrity Apprentice last week. As project manager I won $20,000 for my charity the Detroit Public Schools Foundation (detroitpsfoundation.org). Unfortunately, during my high moment there are always people trying to rain on my joy. There were a lot of tweets accusing me of not using my own $20,000 when I made the donation to DPSF last year. The fact is, the Trump organization holds the donations until after the show airs to preserve the integrity of the show's outcome. Therefore, DPSF received 2 checks; one from me for $20,000 from my personal bank account and the other from Celebrity Apprentice for $20,000. The real question is: Where is NeNe's $20,000? #IllWait
