Tonight, on the RHOA, we return to Mexico where it is 1:35 a.m. and Kenya and Apollo are in a one-on-one conversation at the bar that seems to have been rented out just for this scene. Enter Phaedra. I love how Kenya is all nonchalant with her “Hey Girl!” reaction. Wow, they showed that in the preview but not on the actual episode. Anyway, Kenya and Apollo try to explain themselves to Phaedra who looks like she is about to hit both of them upside the head with her yellow, bedazzled, pocketbook.
Nene and Porsha are finally given their cue to arrive. It was a bad call by production. They should have held those two up at least another ten minutes. Also, the editing last week was that Kenya was crashing a boys night out. Not true. Kenya said on her blog that everyone was invited and the usual suspects arrived late AGAIN. Gregg walks in with Nene. Was he there at the cigar party last week? Anyway, as Apollo says, he was saved by the bell.
Phaedra walks out of the bar and Nene and Porsha follow her like ducklings. Does that make sense to anyone? No, no it doesn’t. Even odder is that Gregg is not in Nene’s wake when they leave. Ah, they are not actually leaving, they are angling for camera time. Phaedra has a drama so they need to get up in it or else they did their hair for nothing. Kandi smartly hangs with Todd. Kenya and Apollo agree to squash things and be friends. They shake on it. Gregg and Nene and Porsha try to give Apollo marital advice. Read that sentence again, because that happened.
Surprisingly, Apollo actually leaves to go talk to Phaedra. I’m surprised that he didn’t wait to be the last to leave so he could return to a slumbering wife. Instead he finds Phaedra outside the room locked out because she didn’t have a key. Why didn’t she just go to the front desk and get a duplicate key? Because apparently that was not in the script. Apollo doesn’t have a key either. He tries to get Phaedra to go back to the party but she is not having it. She tells him to go get a key and he says he doesn’t want to walk to go get the key? Why didn’t she go? Apparently, the lobby is a long walk. I’m sure the bartender can make a call and send somebody. Finally, Phaedra suggests just that.
At some point, can we talk about what Nene was wearing? I didn’t get it. Thoughts? I want Miss Lawrence’s kaftan!
Kenya gets more camera time than any of these other women. What she is doing is paying off for her.
The next morning, Apollo meets Phaedra for breakfast and tries to be funny and cute. Phaedra shall not be moved. Phaedra is studying for her mortuary finals. She tells Apollo that she wanted to slap the dog piss out of Kenya so she left. Apollo has nothing to say. So he plans a birthday party for Phaedra’s upcoming birthday. That’s a decent gesture I suppose, but Kenya will be there.
At the party, Nene and Kenya joke together! Apollo and Phaedra arrive later than the rest and they are already bickering. During the piñata smashing, Porsha manages to knock the elaborate toppings off the cake. Then Kandi makes a speech telling Phaedra she values their friendship and that she loves her. Time for Apollo to speak, he basically says she’s a good baby mama and that they should keep moving forward. WTF?
It’s the very last night and, unbeknownst to everyone, Kenya has planned a redo of Pajama Brawl #2013. Oh LAWD. Things were going so well.
Porsha’s question is, “Do your prefer wild sex or romantic sex?” She says wild sex, but she also like romantic sex. She pictures romantic sex being with an older man. Basically, she has never had romantic sex. Hell she may even be virgin. Nene, Peter and Gregg are offended.
Nene’s question: Name something that annoys you about another couple in the room. Oh no. Here we go. I know Nene is about to tell SOMETHING. Nene says she is going to take it to her sista, Porsha. She is annoyed by ignorance. She refers to her old man sex comment. Peter jumps in to jump on Porsha too. Peter muttered something when Nene cut him off. It didn’t seem like a big deal but it pissed off Gregg. Then Nene brings up that Kandi asked Nene if she still had her period. Nene thinks anyone who thinks someone in their forties could be menopausal is ignorant. Really, Nene? Please enlighten us on the magical menopause age so we can all mark our calendars. Nene thinks she can still get pregnant. Todd tells Nene that it is all in the delivery.
Miss Lawrence’s question is, “What would you define as cheating?” Lawrence says a one night stand is not cheating. He says that cheating is an emotional connection. Lawrence says all men cheat. Lawrence asks Phaedra and Apollo their views. Phaedra says the first time someone cheats on her and she finds out she is out the door. I don’t believe that for a minute. Apollo’s ways are no secret. Apollo says he thinks everyone cheats, because that is what all cheaters think. Porsha asks if he thinks Phaedra has cheated. He says not yet but it could happen. Nene says, “Phaedra with those big legs you don’t think she cheats?” Phaedra laughs. I don’t get the joke. Apollo says if Phaedra cheats she hopes she uses a condom.
Kenya sends the men to her room so the girls can talk without Peter interrupting. I guess we will find out what exactly set Gregg off in there. Side Note: Miss Lawrence was sent off with the men. You know he was offended.
Kenya asks the ladies if they have anything important to say to clear the air before returning to Atlanta. Kenya tries to get Nene to explain her issues with Marlo but she would not go there. Kenya brings up the Apollo conversation with Phaedra. Phaedra says she has asked her many times not to interact with her husband outside of her presence. Phaedra says she thought about slapping the dog shit out of her. Kenya says that is not going to happen. Phaedra calls Kenya a home wrecker. Kenya says that she and Apollo decided to be friends so she can’t really speak for her husband. Phaedra says she knows what kind of manipulative and rachet type of chick Kenya is. Kenya says she will listen to Phaedra but she is not going to be insulted. Porsha starts screaming at Kenya. Kenya goes for the jugular with Porsha and makes all the usual beard comments. Kenya and Phaedra agree to not trust each other and the producers send everyone to Kenya’s room where the boys are going off.
In the guys meeting, Peter brings up to Apollo the issue with Kenya the previous night. Apollo says he expects his wife to trust him. Gregg says that he has something against Peter because at Kenya’s charity event Gregg feels like Peter got up in Nene’s face. The truth is that Nene got up in Peter’s face. Peter had quietly left and was waiting for Cynthia when NENE got up in his face demanding to know why he left, so he told her. Gregg needs to go read my recap of that event. Gregg says that Peter disrespected him and his wife. Gregg is dead wrong in his telling. Gregg is drunk and off the chain. Peter is keeping his cool. Apollo says he is not jumping in this one and tells Todd to step away and let them go at it. Only neither one of the old farts is going jump.
Things cut off for me so that my DVR can record the Blood Sweat & Heels Reunion so somehow I missed a bit. But clearly at some point the guys all make up because on WWHL they all seemed pretty chummy. So once again they tease something two episodes out.
