Who’s livin’ large and who’s been relegated to the pool house? We rank The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 3, Episode 15, entitled “Floridon't,” in our weekly Power Rankings. Let the countdown begin!
Previous Ranking: 6 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: We were zero impressed with Miss NeNe this week. She was beyond rude to her host, Thomas. Then, she had the nerve to say she didn't make a big deal out of Sweetie coming to the estate with them. Um, hello, doesn't NeNe realize we're watching the show and therefore have proof of the huge deal she did in fact make? Worst of all, she pretty much single-handedly almost ruined Cynthia's bachelorette weekend.
Ranking: 5 (out of 6)
Previous Ranking: 4 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: Dang, considering this was supposed to be Cynthia's fun weekend, she had a pretty rough time. First, the other housewives tore her apart on the runway for being old and fat. (Jealous much?) Then, Cynthia ended up bursting into tears when Kandi asked her about the honeymoon that might never happen. Finally, NeNe totally sabotaged her girls' getaway with her her ridiculous dramz. That being said, we're proud of Cyn for deciding to stay for the party and standing up to NeNe for once.
Ranking: 4 (out of 6)
Previous Ranking: 5 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: Once again, not much going on in Shereé land. In fact, the only time the episode focused on her was when she put on her fitness instructor hat and led the ladies through a little poolside workout. Oh, and yep, it was during the 30-second mid-show tidbit piece. As far as the Kim and NeNe battle, she didn't exactly side with anyone, but she did comment that NeNe was showing her "true colors," and basically acting like a big spoiled brat.
Previous Ranking: 1 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: Phaedra continued to surprise us this week by being unusually cool. In fact, we’ve gotta give her mad props for her various attempts to keep the good times rolling when things got awkward thanks to NeNe. Plus, she definitely delivered on her promise of sexy strippers. These guys were far superior to that leopard-clad clown Kandi had on the Kandi Koated Nights show at the beginning of the season.
Previous Ranking: 3 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: Congrats to Kandi on a successful tour, and kudos for managing to get through it without pulling a NeNe (A.K.A. strangling Kim). For reals, Kandi really wowed us with her soulful performances. Nice work!
Ranking: 1 (out of 6)
Previous Ranking: 2 (out of 6)
Gossip, Girl: Honestly, we can't believe Kim didn't send NeNe packing after how rudely she acted at her friend's estate. In the end, Kim's ability to remain levelheaded made her the much bigger slash saner person. As a result, by the end of the episode, the rest of the housewives were definitely leaning toward Kim's side of the battle, or at the very least they all thought NeNe was acting like a complete fool. Plus, Kim impressed the women with her performance, which was her goal from the get-go. Win.
