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.

Spoilers Ahead: 7 Things We Learned at the RHOA Reunion

Get the tea on everything from NeNe's mom to new cheating allegations.

1Did Peter Cheat on Cynthia?

No! Cynthia says she would know if Peter was stepping out on her and that Porsha was making reckless allegations. 

Oh and Peter also made it clear that he would rather play with himself than sleep with one of his employees.

2Did Kordell Cheat on Porsha?

Yes! In an unexpected twist, Porsha let it be known that Kordell had cheated on her when they were still married.

She only learned about it after the fact though.

3Did Phaedra Have an Affair with an African Man Named Chocolate?

No! Phaedra claims she's never "done anything to compromise her marriage."

 

She even revealed that she still loves Apollo.

4Why Did NeNe Fall Out with Cynthia?

According to NeNe, Cynthia blindsided her at the reunion last year, because they had already mended fences. She thinks Peter told Cynthia to "change gears" with NeNe.

She also claims that Cynthia asked for her seat to be changed so that she and NeNe weren't sitting together.

5Why Did Cynthia Fall Out with NeNe?

According to Cynthia, NeNe wrote shady things about her in her blog over a comment Cynthia made in the show...all while they were on a trip together in Las Vegas. 

And that was the breaking point for Cynthia.

6Why Can't NeNe Talk About Her Mom?

As Gregg told Andy, NeNe's mother had five children when she was very young, and sent NeNe and her brother to Athens to be raised by her aunt. 

NeNe's always wondered why she was one of the two siblings sent away, and it's bugges her all her life.

7Does Andy Have Opinions on All of This?
