Phaedra Whips Out the Big Buns - Ep 6

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor reveals how you can recreate Phaedra's scandalous ensemble at home.

This episode was all about departures -- Kim takes her leave and the ladies head off to Anguilla. A Housewives trip is really exactly what we need right now to fill the wig shaped hole in our hearts right now.

No. 3 - Under Their Umbrella

The ladies got a little dance performance treat when Phaedra organized a special showcase from the local dance troupe. This wasn't surprising, only because of Phaedra's habit of always organizing some kind of dance exhibition at events -- the ballet dancers at her baby shower, ReDICKulous at Kandi's birthday, etc. She's truly a modern day patron of the arts.

The dance group shook it up with some semi-scandalous moves and some fancy umbrella prop usage. (Were the Anguilla dancers the inspiration behind Rihanna's hit?!) This (coupled with plenty of pina coladas most likely) got the girls in the mood to show off some of their own booty-popping moves, and NeNe puts the other girls to shame. Clearly she wasn't afraid to dust off some of her pole dancing skills, to show these girls she's still got it (and perhaps to send a little "yep, this is what you've been missing" message to Gregg).

No. 2 - More Excuses!

So when is NeNe releasing Excuses? Because that needs to happen. I'm already hooked from the snippet she came up with on the spot, and I love the idea of having the other ladies doing backup. Although I'd worry about some crazy Supremes-like drama, so this would have to be a one time thing.

Plus we now know that all the ladies have sexy moves up their sleeves, so there is definitely some music video potential here.No. 1 - Welcome to the Bun Show

Phaedra's always been a proper Southern belle, but it's clear she's got a bit of a wild side. Phaedra decided to let her freak flag fly a little louder and clearer than usual however, when she debuted a very special ensemble -- basically a thong with a fishnet stocking thrown over it. Outfit complete! You can recreate this look at home simply by buying some black yarn and strategically placing it over yourself.

This was done of course to accentuate her legendary donkey booty, which we will probably never see again in such detail, so I hope you all soaked up the enormity (ha!) of the moment.

Next week Kenya and Porsha's mounting tension finally boils over.

Phaedra: I Appreciated Demetria's Apology

Phaedra Parks was glad that she and Demetria McKinney could move forward.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel that you and Demetria were able to wipe the slate clean?
Phaedra Parks: I appreciated Demetria talking with me privately and apologizing; it afforded us both the chance to put our differences aside and move on. Demetria and I have very different perspectives on life, but that's what makes the world go round. This was a very important trip for her, and I certainly didn’t want my presence or any misunderstandings between us to be a distraction to her.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Claudia accused Porsha of dating a married man?
PP: No, I was not surprised as this is the typical modus operandi for these women. They just throw out anything sensational and hope that something sticks. They are living proof that, "If they don't know your business, they'll make it up." This is exactly how hurtful rumors and gossip begin. #FixitJesus


Bravotv.com: Did you enjoy Demetria’s performance?
PP: I enjoyed her performance. She has a beautiful voice. I was impressed with her performance. I’d still love to hear her sing some gospel music. That's one of my favorite genres.

Bravotv.com: Were you and the girls able to have a good time despite all the drama? What was your favorite part of the trip?
PP: We managed to have some fun in between all the fighting and drama. The hotel was nice, we ate well, and the weather was perfect. My favorite part of the trip was having some girl time on the beach with NeNe, Porsha, and Kandi.
