Music filled Sunday's season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which included some high notes – and some low ones.

Kandi Burruss's musical, A Mother's Love, based on her life, loves and ongoing battles with her own mother, opened to a sold-out audience that not only such celebrities as Tyler Perry, but also Momma Joyce herself.

"Some of the things I couldn't say to my mother, I say in music," Burruss said. "As my mom is watching the show, I hope it makes her say … 'We can make this happy ending in real life.' "

NeNe Leakes told Cynthia Bailey's husband, Peter Thomas, to stop acting like "a bitch" on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta", and the word and its delivery was nearly enough to break up a close friendship.

After Thomas and Gregg Leakes went loco in Mexico, and NeNe inserted herself into the ongoing masquerade ball battle – telling Thomas that he needed to stay out of the women's business – the longtime friends went after one another.

Tony Dovolani Gushes Over DWTS Partner NeNe Leakes: She 'Treats Me Like Gold'

Originally posted 03/25/2014 11:30AM

Tony Dovolani has gotten to know partner NeNe Leakes quite well over the last few weeks during Dancing with the Stars rehearsals – and one thing he's learned quickly: she isn't one to tone down the energy.

"God forbid I'm having one of those tough days, she'll start dancing with me and rubbing on me. I immediate have a smile on my face," Dovolani, 40, told PEOPLE backstage right after Monday night's show, where he and the TV personality were declared safe to move on to next week's competition. "We hit it off right off the bat."

Expressing his gratitude to fans for voting them on for another week, Dovolani said it will give the dancing duo "the opportunity to show off NeNe's real side," adding, "Everybody's got this perception of NeNe. I've grown to really respect her and adore her. I think she's actually a big teddy bear. She treats me like gold. We really have a good time."

Originally posted 03/24/2014 10:25PM

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.

Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."

Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

Real Housewives of Atlanta: The Husbands Go Loco in Mexico

Originally posted 03/24/2014 06:30AM

The Real Housewives of Atlanta was filled with surprises on Sunday – including a surreal surprise party in Mexico for Phaedra Parks featuring a piñata filled with condoms. But the biggest surprise of all was the husbands brawling for a change.

NeNe Leakes's husband, Gregg, let Cynthia Bailey's husband, Peter Thomas, know just how unhappy he was that Thomas had approached his wife after Kenya Moore's ill-fated masquerade ball.

"You stepped up in my wife's grill," Leakes told Thomas after Moore attempted to hold a re-do of the disastrous couples' night pajama party that ended in fisticuffs. "If you ever come up into my wife's face like that, there's going to be a showdown … you disrespected me … Don't walk up on my wife without me present."

Snakes, bats and chanting shamans were just a few of the things in Mexico to spook The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, but the most frightening encounter of all may have happened when Phaedra Parks walked in on her husband talking intimately to Kenya Moore.

"I do not do snakes, I do not do snakes, I do not do snakes," NeNe Leakes hilariously chanted upon encountering an anaconda, while a hyperventilating Porsha Stewart said, "When you see a snake as big as a building, yeah, I'm scared."

When the snake was picked up and hauled away from them, Parks, 40, said she hoped they were taking it to Jimmy Choo.
