After a roller coaster season, how did our Atlanta Housewives make out in the end? We rank The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the Season 3 finale, Episode 16, entitled "The Bride and the Gloom" in our weekly Power Rankings. We think you'll be surprised with the results. Let the countdown begin!

NENE LEAKES

Ranking: 6 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 6 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: Aside from a quasi-reconciliation with Dwight, NeNe didn't have the most productive season. Her friendship with Kim is over, her husband is still living in the basement, and her son is still a slacking moocher. Unfortunately, the search for NeNe's "happy" is still on.

CYNTHIA BAILEY

Ranking: 5 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 5 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: For sure, Cynthia looked absolutely stunning as a platinum-silver bride. While she was able to pull off the wedding in the end, we're not sure that this particular road to the altar should have been forever immortalized via reality TV. First, there's all that doubt — we're sure Peter will be thrilled to see his wife spending most of her big day in tears. Then, there's the evil scheming sister, Malorie. We can't wait to see Cynthia's reaction to that ridiculous marriage certificate heist situation.

KANDI BURRUSS

Ranking: 4 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 2 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: Since we feel Kandi focuses way too much on other people, like Kim and now Lawrence, we were psyched to see her spread her musical wings this season during her successful promo tour. But, we can't believe there are still financial issues surrounding "The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing" — clearly, the songstress didn't quite learn her lesson after "Tardy for the Party."

PHAEDRA PARKS

Ranking: 3 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 3 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: In the end, we were downright shocked to find out that Phaedra is in fact kinda cool, not to mention hilarious. Again, we're blaming the preggo hormones for her initial outrageous behavior. We got a little misty-eyed ourselves when Phaedra teared up over leaving Ayden on her first day back at work. We just knew that Phae-Phae would tap into her maternal instincts eventually. Well, maybe not, but we were hoping. We're definitely looking forward to more Phaedra next season.

KIM ZOLCIAK

Ranking: 2 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 1 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: Unlike NeNe, Kim made leaps and bounds in her personal life this season. Not only did she finally stop kidding herself with Big Poppa, she replaced him with a much younger, hotter, singler version: Atlanta Falcon Kroy Biermann. The couple is expecting their first baby this coming June. Could this mean a new line of baby wigs for Kim?

SHEREE WHITFIELD

Ranking: 1 (out of 6)

Previous Ranking: 4 (out of 6)

Gossip, Girl: We were pretty surprised to find Shereé in the top slot, too, considering she's been out of the spotlight for quite some time now. Then, we realized Shereé has managed to achieve a nearly impossible feat for Housewives: steering clear of dramz. Aside from a flop 'ship with faux Dr. Tiy-e, which she nipped in the bud anyway, Sheree had a pretty great season. She conquered one of her biggest fears by dancing in public, she reconnected with her daughter Tierra, and she even landed her first feature role in a film. Best of all, she introduced us to Lawrence, our new favorite gay husband! Score.
