'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: Spa Date from Hell

The best reaction shot of the whole episode goes to the lovely spa employee who kept trying to bring the women some nice cool water or invite them to get their mud masks. (That and the way NeNe gagged when Phaedra brought up her stripper friend who can orally stimulate himself.) The woman's eyes would bug, her breath catch, as she tried to silently back away from the sloppy circle of mud-slingers. But how our women have grown. No wigs were snatched, no necks choked. They aired their differences with grace and tact: "First of all, I didn't call your baby an alien!"

Who would've thought there'd come an Atlanta show-down in which NeNe and Sheree played minimal roles? They've graduated from swinging punches to merely stirring the pot. Points to NeNe for at least admitting to Cynthia that she had shared news of the Friend Contract with Kim.  Cynthia, who I'm increasingly impressed by (her casting may have been Bravo's genius move of the season), tried to hold NeNe accountable for her mini-betrayal. NeNe dodged and weaved though, claiming that per the Contract she gets to mess up without suffering the consequences. That little minx.
