'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 3, Episode 15 Recap

by Amy Kuperinsky, posted Jan 24th 2011 6:45AM


['The Real Housewives of Atlanta' - 'Floridon't']NeNe and Kim, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'

As it rolled into the Miami estate, the bus from hell seemed more sinister than any piece of stuffed wildlife or painted ceiling faun in the place. Phaedra would've done better to point her proposed "holy oil" in that direction.

In stark contrast to the whirling NeNe and defensive Kim, the centers of calm quickly became Phaedra, Shereé and Kandi. Forget Cynthia. Apart from the runway interlude, her internal struggles reigned supreme.

Shereé decided to run an exercise class (no surprise that Kim, a.k.a. Ms. Fat-Burning Laser, stayed on the sidelines), Phaedra was willing to change the conversation to dessert, and Kandi -- while disapproving of Kim's language towards Sweetie -- wasn't about to take sides.

NeNe might have wanted to cut the party short, yet as eager Phaedra said, there were "strippers on deck." And Lawrence provided as effective a diversion as any with his keen housewife imitations.

Do you think Shereé was far off on her assumption that estate owner Thomas Kramer was "another Big Poppa, in Miami?"

The last show of the tour seemed pretty cheerful, Kim sunny in yellow and Kandi sporting those happy rainbow earrings (Phaedra's oversized butterfly numbers were pretty dashing, too). All the bus people (apart from late entrant NeNe) seemed pretty happy, too, maybe precisely because -- as Kandi said -- it was over. And at least two of the other housewives seemed impressed by Kim's ability to pull off a performance.

Is this really it for Kim and NeNe? They've been on the worst of terms more than once before, so what changes now? No actual choking has occurred, after all. Not even a wig-tug. Or shift. The best we got was "Bye, wig!!" Which was, by the way, probably the best pissed-off NeNe comment of the episode.

Cynthia was at the end of her tether, breaking down at the very mention of a honeymoon. Should she wait until the money situation improves? Or at least her stress level? What, really, is the harm in waiting? Lost deposits?

Regardless of whether she actually went through with the marriage ceremony, who knows how the show's resident model now feels, having presumably heard Phaedra's cottage cheese-dipped pretzel comment, along with what happened when the other housewives weighed in on Cynthia's posterior. That's a question for Andy Cohen to ask right there.

'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' airs Sundays, 10 PM ET on Bravo.

I was a big fan but I will NO longer watch it if I have to listen to NeNe and Kim argue all the time. Best cast member is Phadrea. She has a way of keeping it real w/out having to be the loudest. There is something to be said for a smart ,well spoken, black woman ,who is willing to stand by her man and give him a 2nd chance at life. Time to recast a few spots Bravo.
