These shows are always boring so I am not particularly excited by this episode. That said, production sure did seem to enjoy calling out Nene on her lies with unseen footage on the reunion, so they may surprise us with something interesting. Meanwhile, my new DVR refuses to record RHOA. I can’t say that I blame it.
Oh really Andrew, we are going to talk about Nene and her being such a good friend? Andy asks what happened to all the furniture that Kenya gave (loaned?) Nene when she was in LA. Nene immediately starts saying it was just a bunch of crap. Apparently, Kenya sold her a TV and some other items. Who cares? Next they roll tape of Nene and Kenya getting along and Kenya talking about her boyfriend. Kenya’s in love and her man cannot leave Nigeria, so it’s a problem. Apparently, the sex is great. We find out her man is in his 30s.
Kandi has been a good friend and a mentor to Porsha. They show a package about the two girls. OMG, Rickey Smiley let Porsha try to do the news on the air on his radio show. The girl cannot read, y’all. How is she supposed to report the news? Porsha is the Sonja Morgan of RHOA, she has all of these imaginary businesses she is going to get going very soon. Porsha and Kandi sing a little bit of His Eye is On the Sparrow, and I gotta say, Porsha sounded good especially with no music and no autotune.
They show Noelle’s 14th birthday at Bar One with Leon there. It’s very cute. I wish they would have shown more of the fun stuff. Sadly, Noelle and Arthur have broken up. Then we see Kenya and Cynthia getting a long and doing a photo shoot together. Damn that Kenya has some abs! Wow that was a very extensive photo shoot and Kenya looked HOT. Kenya said that Cynthia has a huge heart and she was grateful that Cynthia gave her another chance.
Andy moves on to Phaedra. Andy just adores Phaedra and her kids. Phaedra did take forever to name that baby.
Then we have a tiny bit of Hollywood Nene. Nene has dinner with Naya Rivera from Glee. Nene arrives to STK in a blue denim mechanics jumpsuit. I’ve seen her wear that before. Why? Is she moonlighting at Jiffy Lube? Nene likes to pretend she is lifelong friends with Naya, who is like 12. Nene points out that she is above the gossip.
Meanwhile, Kenya pretends she has know Miss Lawrence for ten years. Why do they do this. We know those two met through RHOA. They show a scene with Kenya and Miss Lawrence gossiping about Phaedra and a bit about Cynthia and Peter. All while Kenya was putting together gift bags for the girls. Again, cute scene, normal level of gossip, why isn’t the whole show like this?
Next Cynthia and Natalie go to lunch the day after the Pajama Brawl. Why do we need this scene with this woman? Cynthia seemed to be over Natalie. We were all over Natalie after the first five minutes of air time. Please don’t let this woman hold a peach next season, Andrew.
In Mexico, Kenya gave every couple a book called Spanish for Dummies. She gave Porsha a book with pictures. Which I think was very kind of Kenya to differentiate for her special learning needs.
HOLY SHIT. Next week Peter gets his peach. Well sort of. They are doing a Real House husbands episode. Gregg asks Apollo, “Is you going to jail?” No Gregg, he’s going to prison.
More Mama Joyce stupidity. Again, Andy loves this.
We have another scene from the car ride with Chuck and Phaedra and Nene. I do not like this. I hope this doesn’t mean Mynique and Chuck are back next season. I didn’t think that was even a possibility. Chuck Smith makes a comment about his brand. Then, oh irony of ironies Phaedra says Chuck doesn’t have a brand. None of these fools have a brand, except maybe a fraternity or prison brand on their arm somewhere. If you missed this idiotic video of Apollo talking about people trying to damage his brand, you must click the link. Phaedra admits that Apollo is emotional and has a temper and she didn’t want Apollo to beat up Chuck because he called when Chuck was yelling at her in the car.
Then there was a cute scene with Kenya and Peter talking about the trunk show for Malorie’s beaded jewelry. Kenya tells Peter she was about to punch Malorie in the face. It was funny. And before all you pro violence people tell me that I didn’t think it was funny when Porsha did it, Kenya removed herself from the situation and left early to avoid a violent confrontation, to take a seat.
So that was a little better than expected. I liked that most of the lost footage was funny.
