I’ve already discussed the first few scenes of this episode, here. Phaedra and Kandi snark on Chuck. And Mallory seems to have an ulterior motive for showing up. It is not “mending fences” as she says, it’s more like running Peter out of Cynthia’s life.
Mostly, I actually feel sorry for Kenya. Whether her dad really is this critical or just doing it on national TV because it is in the script, he is just awful. I’m no Kenya fan, but I am starting to feel some compassion for her based on the crappy hand she was dealt in the parents department.
Porsha met with her divorce lawyer to discuss the fact that they were unable to mediate and will be letting the judge decide the settlement. I thought it was funny that the attorney actually pointed out to her that she would need to pay them from her settlement.
Kandi and Todd are working on the play and talking about logistics. Todd points out that no one in their crew has done a play before. Todd brings up he has a job offer with an international traveling show that would start in January (as in now) that would be shot in five different countries. He seems pretty excited about it. Kandi wants to know how he can work on the play with her if he is doing the other show. Which is a ridiculous question because his new gig doesn’t start until after the play is over. It sounds like the job would be from January to June. Kandi has to realize, this is what Todd does for a living, in my opinion.
Nene and Cynthia go over to Kenya’s to discover a white Bentley in the driveway with the top down at night. I can’t wait to hear Kenya’s lie about this product placement by Bravo. She tries to claim it is a gift from her imaginary prince. Ain’t nobody buying what she is selling. Kenya refers to Kandi’s play as the “Chitlin Circuit.” Kenya’s father was in this scene briefly, just long enough to spout off about his sexist believes before making his exit.
Porsha and Kandi drop by Porsha’s McMansion in Duluth. Porsha says she is leasing to purchase. Phaedra and Kandi both tell her she is making a huge mistake with this house. She can’t afford it, it’s WAY too far outside the perimeter, and you don’t need the upkeep on 8,000 square feet. I mean this is not rocket science. After a bit of strawberry shortcake, the girls say they need to leave because they have a long drive to get home. They really aren’t kidding they live an hour away if there is no traffic. Porsha says something about them spending the night and the make a sex toy joke that goes straight over Porsha’s head. She asks,”Kandi brought her toys?” Phadrea says no, we left all the good ones with Kordell, he’s sitting pretty. Then Phaedra does an impression of Kordell sitting on a vibrator. #southernbelle
The ladies are all eating outside at a sidewalk café when Baton Bob strolls by. Baton Bob is a well-known character in Atlanta that likes to twirl his baton and run around drawing attention to himself. I assure you this was not a set up by Bravo moment that Bob knew about in advance or he would have been wearing his full wedding gown. It looks like it was hot that day so Bob went for something a bit more comfortable. Bob is known for having a bit of a temper if his attention seeking is interrupted, especially if the police are the ones doing the interrupting. If there is a camera filming in Atlanta, Baton Bob will surely arrive soon. Not surprisingly Kenya fell in love with Baton Bob. Two Twirlers Together Forever.
Cynthia has a trunk show for Mallory’s bracelets at her studio and invites all the girls. Wow, the show is spelling Mallory’s name Malorie. I am not going back to change all the past instances. #sorrynotsorry However you spell it, Mal seems to trying to come for Kenya. Everyone is talking about how it is out of line to show up anywhere unannounced for two months, but Mal has decided to make Kenya the example. Let’s see how that works out. Cynthia pulls Mal aside to remind her that she invited her friends there to buy her bracelets and they are not going to do that if she gets up in everyone’s face. Kenya and Phaedra immediately spill to Nene that Porsha moved into her neighborhood. Nene calls Porsha a bad friend. Porsha has a breakdown. Kenya literally runs out to play in traffic in a full length gown. That is not a safe place for Kenya to have a freakout. In fact it is full tranny prostitutes. She better be sure she is not mistaken for one. I’m serious!
This episode was pretty uneventful over all in my opinion. What did y’all think? We haven’t seen Apollo or Gregg in ages…
