Soul Searching in a Strip Club - Ep 9

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor wonders how Cynthia selected that strip club.

This episode really straddled the line between sexy and attempted sexy moments. There must have been something in the Atlanta air...

No. 3 - French Kissin' in the U.S.A

What's the best way to shoot down those pesky divorce rumors? Pheadra and Apollo have your answer -- simply make out in public. But not just any make out will do; you need to commit wholeheartedly and whole-mouthedly. Because really the only way you could do that in public without feeling so incredibly awkward and like you can never look your partner in the eye again is to be secure in your relationship.

No. 2 - Rich Fabrics

You may not have thought it possible, but I think NeNe proved she is even richer than last season (bitch!) with her cash couture. I preferred it to the diamond bath look, but hey, that's just me. Is this the launching pad for a line of NeNe Leakes looks? Just some casual items made out of money or expensive items -- the gold doubloon blouse, the Benjamin bottoms, treasure chest tops -- this could be huge!

No. 1 - Strip Search

Cynthia decides she wants to go to a strip club with Peter, Phaedra, and Apollo to see what the fuss is about for guys. Now, I'm not sure how they ended up picking the fine establishment they did, but it managed to be the both the best and worst choice ever. Why? Let's just say the median age for the dancers was, well, a bit higher than you might have expected. It was great for them to support these veteran performers, and as Phaedra pointed out, good for them that they're still comfortable showing off their bodies. At the same time, it was almost impossible to take in a word of Apollo's serious "I need to find myself" speech while these seasoned strippers were shaking their stuff. Just take a look for yourself.

Next week we get to meet NeNe's granddaughter, excuse me, glam-daughter.

Kenya: NeNe Was Trying to Diffuse the Situation

Kenya Moore shares her thoughts on Claudia and NeNe's confrontation.

Bravotv.com: Were you happy with Cynthia's performance in your pilot?
Kenya Moore: I think she did a solid job! I know that I can be very tough when I have my producer hat on. Cynthia is pretty new to acting, and I didn't have the kind of time that I would have liked to walk her through each step so that she was absolutely comfortable. I think she was a bit nervous at first, but she quickly adapted and I was very impressed.

Bravotv.com: Was the vibe still positive between you and Phaedra at her event?
KM: Yes, I was focused on supporting her and the event.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised NeNe walked out of Phaedra's event?
KM: I cannot say I was. I also wasn't there to witness the entire exchange between her and the other girls, but it did appear that she was trying to diffuse the situation of a potential argument occurring. When that didn't seem likely, she did what she's accustomed to doing, which is leave.
