The Real Housewives of Atlanta should be good for some drama tonight. Nene has rented a house in Hollywood Hills and Kenya is unloading her LA storage into Nene’s rental. She is already name-dropping her neighbors. The house looks beautiful! I just hope they got the owner’s permission to film there. They don’t need another lawsuit at Bravo for filming on property without permission. Listen to Nene being sensible and talking about being on a budget and not going overboard on spending for furniture until she knows she has more stable work there! Who is this responsible woman with a mature financial mindset?
Cute scene with Riley and Kandi making a cake for Todd’s birthday. Kandi has rented a helicopter to take Todd and her to the party. Family is coming in from out of town. Riley is really growing up. She is already angling for a helicopter ride to her sweet sixteen party and she would like to have the guest house for her private living quarters. Kandi is trying to keep Riley grounded. I think she is doing a great job so far.
Here we go with a Kenya scene. I don’t know why they try to show Kenya in the kitchen “cooking” or in opening plastic containers of raw veggies. Oh yes I do, the word is there is very little furniture in the house so the kitchen looks the least sparse. She is hosting her aunt and her cousin for ???? a scene. They remark on her trying to cook and laugh. She made a salad and cut up some watermelon. This is Kenya cooking. Kenya is breaking the news that she and Walter are on the rocks. She told him it was over. Kenya’s cousin says that the fact Walter would not sleep with her in Anguilla makes him gay. No dear, it’s just that sex scenes were not required in his contract. The cousin who said he was gay, says he hit on her before. Doesn’t sound gay to me. Sounds like just plain old, “he’s not that into you.” There is still not a single appliance or even a spoon on the kitchen countertops. I also don’t see the point of a rented baby grand piano, that is either a backdrop or some piano store loaned them the piano as advertising. Now that I look at the piano in Kandi’s talking heads I think both are backdrops.
Phaedra and Apollo are in the gym and Kenya shows up to discuss the video DVR. Phaedra says she is “giving Kenya the opportunity to work with them.” Kenya says Phaedra is a really good friend (um, no she isn’t, she barely knows you) and she is going to “help her out.” I can already see where this is going. Apollo seems like he wants to run the show and Phaedra is not very good at taking the back seat. Looks like the video is a bunch squats with crazy names. Kenya has been out shopping the video before Phaedra was really ready. Kenya says she has been working for free for about 6 weeks. They are talking about using Cynthia for model casting. I think the final video is just Phaedra and Apollo. Sidebar: The editing is a lot less hectic tonight. YAY!
Meanwhile, back in the hills of Bever Lee, Nene is overwhelmed with the move and feels like she did not do her best on the set for the first week. She wants Gregg to be Mr. Mom and take care of the homefront. Gregg says Nene micromanages and needs to let him do it and let go of control.
Phaedra and Apollo are sitting down with their lawyer and Kenya. The lawyer left before Kenya walked in. That was odd. Oh wait the attorney is slinking around in the hallway listening. That is even odder. Kenya says that Phaedra’s attorney told her she did not deserve any backend funds and that she was taken back by that. Kenya says that this is how she makes her bread and butter. Again incorrect. Phaedra says she has talked to Todd and he said the budget was insane. Kenya in her talking heads is of course dramatic and offended. Kenya says she produces multi-million dollar films. Phaedra says that she has never heard of one of them. After the Kenya leaves the lawyer comes back in. It’s clear they are going to go with Todd’s production crew. Meanwhile, Kenya is in the parking lot doing the twirl just like that little brain-damaged dog on Shahs of Sunset.
Porsha’s scene is Kordell bringing her breakfast in bed. Wait that was just the little blip that comes at th forty minute mark. Is that all she gets this episode?
Kandi takes Todd to the heliport and off they go to the surprise birthday party. Phaedra is helping with the table set ups. Porsha is looking for a baby picture of Kandi on the placemats. Phaedra reminds her that the pictures are of Todd because it is his birthday. Kenya is announcing her decades old Miss USA title to the party guests. Kenya tries to get Todd on her side. Todd goes running to Phaedra and Phaedra squashes his attempts to smooth things over with Kenya in about two seconds.
Time for Todd and Kandi to make their grand entrance. Kenya confronts Todd about discussing the production of the donkey booty video with Kandi. Kandi shuts down Kenya right away and explains they are here to celebrate Todd’s birthday and not to discuss business.
At the Bailey Agency Cynthia is a bit hot about a tweet that Phaedra sent out telling anyone who wanted to be in a video to show up at the Bailey Agency. Cynthia’s phones blew up with questions. Meanwhile Kenya explains to Cynthia that she may not even been doing the production. Cynthia seems to be taking Kenya’s side. On the previews, for next week, Kenya decides to do her own video using her own butt implants. Apollo and Phaedra don’t look pleased by this news.
