Part 1 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta in Africa got the trip rolling in a very dramatic way. Was there any doubt that their issues weren’t going to stay stateside?

When NeNe Leakes invited Marlo Hampton to join the trip, she hoped it would stoke some drama. Well, she’s probably wondering at this point if she should have been careful about what she asked for. After Sheree Whitfield decided not to invite NeNe, Marlo, and Cynthia Bailey to her local friend’s dinner party, all hell broke loose. I’m sure you all have plenty to say about that fight…

Well, Bravo is giving viewers a week to cool off as Part 2 airs in two weeks. The women blow off steam at a nightclub and take in the local wildlife during a safari. And the Housewives do take a break from the arguing long enough to visit a South African orphanage and gain some perspective.
