NeNe's Sweet on Kandi - Ep 8

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor hopes that Kandi and NeNe's new friendship leads to a musical collaboration.

The final installment of the Anguilla trip has proved to be miraculous -- NeNe rode a horse, Kandi finally had a breakthrough with NeNe, and Walter somehow didn't propose to Kenya, despite her persistent inquiries. I suppose in the spirit of Christmas, the Anguilla trip has turned into the gift that keeps on giving.

No. 3 - No Horseplay

Given NeNe's distaste for danger (I think she nearly passed out when Kenya put the pedal to the metal on that speedboat), it wasn't exactly shocking that NeNe's not a natural equestrienne, unlike Phaedra.

After Gregg helps hoist her up onto her noble steed, NeNe holds onto its neck for deal life as it moves at an incredibly slow trot while the handler holds the reins. And with that she jumps down and thirstily seizes a cocktail from one of the waiters who handily happens to have a tray full of daquiris. Horses may not be her thing, but NeNe does know her way around a cocktail.

No. 2 - Kenya Get Me a Ring?

Evidently not. After one of the more awkward dinners in Housewives history, where everyone except Kenya seems to be aware that Walter has no intention of proposing to Kenya, Kenya has a talk with Walter, which ends up being even more awkward than the dinner. Evidently Walter saying "anything can happen in three days" led Kenya to believe he was definitely proposing to her. And even if Walter was considering, Kenya's constant pressuring only helped to dissuade him.

So after this revelation, Kenya storms off into the Anguilla woods to go sulk alone in the dark. At which point, Phaedra realizes maybe someone should go get her so she's not sitting out alone in a strange country by herself, so off she trots to her rescue. As Kenya tearfully explains the situation, Phaedra opens up her patented "everybody knows" playbook to share some wisdom about marriage: "Everybody knows the only person looking for a husband is somebody that ain't never had one, honey, because it's more work than what you think it is." Amen!
No. 1 - NeNe's New Sweet Tooth

I don't know about you, but I never did really get why Kandi and NeNe have never gotten along. There's seemingly never been a solid reason for they can't be friends. But all they needed was a little Anguilla magic evidently, because they've finally thawed their icy friendship. I'm guessing it was NeNe's dramatic reenactment of Kenya and Porsha's fight that really warmed Kandi up to the idea of friendship.

Let's just hope this is only the beginning of a beautiful new friendship, because I think there could be some fun times had between them. Especially because it might actually lead to NeNe's song 'Excuses' actually being produced.
Next week it looks like there might be some trouble in paradise for Phaedra and Apollo.

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
