Semi-Homemade with Kenya - Ep 4

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks Kenya could rival Sandra Lee.

This week we saw the ladies engage in typical housewife activities -- packing, going to the salon, cooking dinner -- executed in the way only a Bravo Housewife can. This episode practically veered into sitcom territory, to the point where you might have thought it would switch to black and white and Lucille Ball would pop onto the screen. So let's look back at the most wonderful 'Wife moments, shall we?

No. 3 - Baby's First Haircut

First off, Ayden is too precious. His little voice is so adorable, no wonder Phaedra wants to throw him a $20,000 birthday "experience" at the aquarium! But I digress.

Phaedra and Apollo bring in Ayden for his very first haircut at the barbershop. As you can imagine, it doesn't go very smoothly. As soon as the barber approaches with the clippers, Ayden tells him to back off by saying his sleepy, which, as Phaedra informs us, is Ayden's sneaky little way of avoiding things he doesn't want to do.

That's when Apollo steps in to give the haircut, because evidently he is a barber by trade. Huh? According to Phaedra, Apollo used to work in a barbershop himself and still gives cuts on occasion. Who knew? But if that's the case, why did they even bother going to a barber in the first place when they could have just done it at home? Maybe Phaedra didn't want hair flying around her home. But in any event, Apollo basically does the whole cut, and Ayden looks even cuter. I can't help but think Apollo should just open up a barbershop. It could dovetail nicely with Phaedra's funeral business -- Apollo's barbershop crew can also do the hair and makeup of the deceased!

Side Note: Only Phaedra would refer to the smocks at a barbershop as black frocks.

No. 2 - Boxing Match

Kim is not a good mover. She's got a whole lot of stuff, and when she's forced to move, she wants all that stuff boxed and labelled in an organized, logical fashion. But as everyone knows, at that usually falls apart at a certain point and you're just getting stuff in boxes. But that doesn't fly with Kim. Especially when she's paying movers.

So when Kim goes to check the moving progress and finds things not up to her standards, well, it doesn't go so well. "Basement Mix" as a box labeling system nearly gives her a stroke. Tearing into one of the vaguely titled boxes, Kim discovers a margarita mixer and a Santa statue. Now if you ask me, that sounds like a wonderful combination, but Kim is not quite so amused.

I just pray the mover keep their hands off Kim's wigs, because if she finds one of her precious pieces in a "Basement Mix" box, I shudder to think what the consequences might be...
No. 1 - Semi-Homemade with Kenya Moore

OK, not so much semi-homemade as not at all homemade. Kenya tries to woo Walter by preparing him dinner, but rather than just explaining that she didn't have time to cook and giving him the frozen meal she prepared, Kenya goes full on sitcom-crazy and decides she can just fool him into thinking she did. How you ask? Well after furiously stabbing the frozen food tray and throwing it in the microwave, she grabs a pan, throws in two strands of the pasta, and leaves it on stove top. Because all you need to prepare pasta and chicken is a single pan...

However I think Kenya was on the right track at the end -- just accentuate the boobs, and the last thing he'll be thinking about is how you could have prepared pasta in a grill pan.
Next week things get real tense when Kim informs the ladies that she's not coming on the girls' trip. This doesn't look like it's going to end well...

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

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


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
