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.

Cynthia's "Non-Conversation" with NeNe

Cynthia Bailey weighs in on the sit down with NeNe Leakes. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let’s jump right in.

"When people show you who they are, believe them!" -Maya Angelou

I GOT YOUR BACK

Misery loves company, and I'm no longer making house calls. My dance card is full, and my cup runneth over! One of the last things that I recall saying at the reunion was that I believed my friendship with NeNe had come to the end of the road. I was happy to let bygones be bygones, wish everyone well, and move on with my life. I felt that too many boundaries had been crossed and chose to no longer accept friendships plagued with violations and disrespect. The space apart was a much needed break, and I prayed that time truly would heal all old wounds. That optimism was short lived when my friend (who "loved me like a sister") felt the need to attempt to publicly disgrace me and imply that I no longer needed to be a part of the show! Now that's some real sisterly love, right? That one singular moment showed me in HD that NeNe didn't know the meaning of a real friendship, and yes, the thirst really was real. It was astonishing to watch this woman who "had my back when none of these other bitches did" take the sharpest knife she could find, and gleefully stab me with it with no regard for me or my family. Regrettably for me, I never took heed to the many warnings concerning the wrath of NeNe, because I never truly believed them until I was on the receiving end. It was a very rude awakening, and yet oddly enough the only person I felt sorry for was her.

THE DOG THAT BARKS THE LOUDEST

Time passed and life went on until I found myself seated across the table from my girl, "I was a good friend!" NeNe. Despite everything that had happened, I somehow remained optimistic that we could have the conversation, agree to disagree, have a cocktail, and truly move on. I don't know what was more stale, the non-conversation that I had with NeNe or the saltines at the table. This clearly was a missed opportunity for both of us to take ownership and responsibility for any of our issues and put them to rest. I knew that seeing NeNe for the first time since the reunion would be emotional, but I chose not to let my emotions take over me. I wasn't interested in a screaming match or being over talked. I hope NeNe found closure in the conversation that she had with herself.

WWHL: ANNA MAE EATS CAKE

I know that the "Anna Mae" reference from NeNe was meant to be offensive and disrespectful, however I was actually flattered to be compared to one of the world's most popular entertainers, the queen of rock and roll herself Anna Mae Bullock AKA Tina Turner. Tina Turner is a legendary icon whose success, talent, strength, spirit, beauty, and class (not to mention her fabulous legs) speaks volumes and needs no introduction. My name being mentioned in the same sentence with her is an honor within itself. I hope this was not a failed attempt to make fun of the fact that at one point in Ms. Turner's largely successful career and life she was a victim of domestic abuse. All jokes aside, wasn't NeNe herself a victim of domestic abuse as well?

GIRL BYE!

I thought "Bye Girl" actually meant "Bye" and not "Hello Girl" I'm still talking about you! A girl can only dream that one day these words will eventually have merit and true meaning.
Thanks for watching and supporting!

I would like to send my condolences to Todd, Kandi, their entire family and loved ones for the loss of Miss Sharon. She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed. On behalf of my family and staff, you all are in our prayers.

Be sure to tune in to The Real Housewives of Atlanta every Sunday at 8/7c on Bravo.
