I am sort of looking forward to this honestly. Let’s hope it doesn’t let me down. The guys all arrive at Bar One and everyone heads to the bar. Apollo asks for water. Peter, fool that he is tries to get him to drink. I guess they guys don’t know on of Apollo’s conditions for being out on bail is no alcohol. Gregg wants chicken fingers! Peter asks Apollo why he is wearing sunglasses and at night inside a bar. He says that he got attacked last night by Phaedra who whooped him upside his head while he was sleeping . Apparently, Phaedra went in on Apollo accusing him of sleeping with Kenya. The guys bring up Apollo’s flirting with Kenya. Watching Kenya going up the steps. Side note: This is the first time I’ve ever seen Apollo in a shirt that was not plaid. Apollo says he is going to marriage counseling with her. This was filmed a LONG time ago. After he was arrested but possibly before the reunion.
Apollo says their marriage has never been a partnership. Apollo says there is no foundation to the marriage. There is no communication. It’s like he doesn’t exist. Gregg explains that Phaedra was embarrassed by the flirtation on both sides between Kenya and Apollo. Apollo really doesn’t get it. That’s the bottom line. The flirtation began with APOLLO in Anguilla right in front of Phaedra. Yes, Kenya should have squashed it, but Phaedra’s full on character assassination of Kenya in public was over the top. Her private dealings with Apollo were obviously not strong enough to get him to stop what he was doing.
From what Todd just said, this was filmed before the wedding in early April. Gregg tries to explain his submissive role in the marriage. Um, did I say submissive? I mean supportive. Gregg says he does the cooking and cleaning because Nene has more important things to worry about.
They talk about the fight between Peter and Gregg. Peter says he barely remembers it other than Gregg saying “Do you want to live?” Gregg says he doesn’t remember it either. Perhaps drinking is involved. Peter talks about seasons ago when Peter and Apollo got into it. Peter got in Todd’s face as well. The guys say Peter is a hot head. Peter is Caribbean. I like Peter. Peter and Apollo tell Gregg he is soft-spoken and philosophical.
Apollo apologizes to Gregg for not going to him to explain his imminent prison time. He apparently spoke to Peter first (yes I hear y’all going mmmm hmmm) and he told Todd but he did not talk to Gregg. Then comes the big question from Gregg, “Is you going to jail?” Dead silence from Apollo, followed by some stammering, he says we’ll let the court decide that, and that no one wants to go to jail. Gregg asks if knew he was doing something stupid. Apollo has said “at the end of the day” numerous times which is always my drinking phrase for this show. Apollo says, “there were allegations that was brought against somebody else. They said something about him, they came to question him, he was brought in for questioning (he said he turned himself in) and he was back out in an hour.” Ohhh, justice at work. Peter says you know we have all read the reports. They flash up the stories about him being guilty. Apollo says if something happens, and y’all say y’all my boys, all you can do is be supportive. He says Phaedra is not supporting him. He wants her to say they will get through this together and she is not.
Todd says that he struggles with the differences in the financial situations between him and Kandi. He says at Christmas, Kandi wanted a pair of earrings that were out of his budget (From what I know about Todd he is frugal and very financially responsible) he said he went the extra mile to get her the earrings. Her present to him was a gold Rolex. He feels uncomfortable wearing it. I can understand that. He doesn’t want to feel like the boytoy. Kandi doesn’t want Todd to take his out of town job opportunities but he feels the need to bring home the bacon.
Then Apollo, who spent five years in prison for fraud involving a car theft ring, and has no education and no legal employment (um, allegedly) chimes in with his story. He goes into extreme detail over some fancy expensive car he bought for Phaedra (let’s just think it in our head instead of saying it). Phaedra didn’t like the car. Apollo says, “How insatiable can you be?” Two days later she went out and bought her own car and that hurt him to the core. Um, maybe, and I am just going out on a limb here, she knew it was bought with dirty money. When Peter asked shy she didn’t like it he said he thinks it was, “because Apollo Nida bought it.” I think it was more likely that she didn’t want to drive a car that would be seized by the government sooner or later.
Todd says he is about to be out of the game, like y’all. (He means he’s about to get married.) They talk about Mama Joyce. Apollo says that his MIL lives with them Tuesday through Friday to take care of the boys. He says she’s very chill and he has no problems with her.
Gregg brings up that Brentt has just turned 15 and he is into girls now. He asks Peter about Noelle dating Arthur. Todd says Riley is 12 and has a little boyfriend Todd says he wants to get more involved in that situation but he feels it’s a mother daughter issue so he is trying to hold back. Peter said that he was driving Noelle and Arthur home from a football game and they were hunched up in the back of the car and he wanted to pull the car over.
At the 40 mark, the guys talk about hottest housewives. They choose Lisa Wu and Porsha but Apollo really wanted to say Kenya. Peter quickly pointed out that none of them better say Kenya. It was funny.
Todd wants to know if marriage changes sex. Todd seems worried they can’t do it in the car, or the restaurant or the mall any more. LOL. Gregg says the way you say hello in the morning effects whether you are getting sex in the morning. Oh lord, Gregg talks about how he gets up in the morning before Nene to heat her towel for her shower and set out her slippers. He dries and sprinkles…. UGH. I’m sorry I can’t recap this. The men who are still in possession of their testicles are appalled. Todd says he and Kandi shower together in the morning and he washes her. Peter asks Todd if they watch porn together he says yes. He asks Apollo he says no but their sex is bananas because they are both Scorpio. Side note: Sex with a Scorpio is on my bucket list. Peter can’t seem to get the sex he wants. Peter also calls Cynthia “CB”. Gregg admits that he and Nene never stopped having sex when they were “divorced.” Apollo says that Phaedra still does not turn him down for sex. Gregg doesn’t believe him. I DO believe him. After they fought over Kenya they did it.
They talk about exes. Todd says they both tell each other if they find themselves in a situation with an ex. Apollo says he found out about Chuck watching it on TV. Apollo said he had seen Chuck all the time and he had no idea. Apollo is pissed with Kandi for sending Phaedra stuff she read on social media about Apollo cheating.
Peter points to point out that Cynthia Bailey does not write the checks for Peter Thomas. Then they talk about Todd’s bachelor party that was coming up the next night.
That was enlightening. Mostly that Apollo seems VERY pissed with Phaedra. BTW all of his stories about staying with her and sexing her up? Don’t believe a word of it.
