Hey guys, it’s me, TT back recapping RHOA! I admit I have some performance anxiety tonight! Ben C did such a fabulous job taking over for me while I went on mental health leave I’m nervous! I shall do my best. I am excited for tonight as Kenya Moore goes to see her mother. I am not really expecting her to see her. I think she will go to “the house where she lives” and it will be a big dramatic let down where she doesn’t come to the door, but we shall see. I also hope I stay awake for WWHL, it’s going to be great tonight with Sheree Whitfield and Sherri Shepherd. I hope Andy goes there with Sherri, but we shall see. I know he will ask Sheree about Chateau Sheree and She By Sheree though, because he always throws that shade at her.
Kandi says that things are a lot better with Mama Joyce and Todd, and everyone. Kandi is behind on getting ready to bring home a baby. Mama Joyce wants a crib at her house as well. She says she is going to be a granny with a nanny. Kandi thinks that is weird, but I think it is great. Kandi says Mama Joyce is trying to making up for not being that close to Riley when she was born. Kandi wants something over the top for her house. This is not surprising. Mama Joyce wants to mediate the situation between Kandi and Phaedra. Kandi tries to shut that down. But you know Mama Joyce is not going to listen to that.
Noelle is helping Cynthia pack for a mystery trip with Peter. He just told her to pack a bag full of sexy clothes and be ready to head to the airport by five. Sidenote: Noelle is posting some really grown photos on Instagram. She really is blossoming into a beautiful young lady.
Porsha is at the gym flexing her THOT muscles. Then she blesses out her sister because she is jealous of her being pregnant and expect her to work nonstop on her Lingerie company. Lauren points out that she has to fly in coach.
Later there is a weird scene of Porsha eating. It’s not pretty and I’m fast forwarding. I don’t care what they are talking about.
So if you are going to go to all the trouble to hire some actors to play characters at your “law firm” and get The Parks Group stenciled on the door, don’t you think said law firm should have a website? Because, The Parks Group doesn’t have one that I can see. And we are at yet another location for this filming. Allegedly. So Mama Joyce walks on to the set, and there is a man in a suite pretending to work at the desk. Phaedra’s office has the same paint as two years ago but the windows are in an entirely different place. And can we talk about this puffy sleeved cocktail dress she is wearing in her law office? Does Bravo pay for these sets or nah? And what do they think when she tells them she has moved her office? And when there are only two people on set? Are they in on it? Inquiring minds want to know.
Phaedra has her stank face on as she has a fake conversation with Mama Joyce. Mama Joyce subtly threatens Phaedra. They show Kandi at the birth of Phaedra’s kids. Phaedra was recently at the hospital with Kandi had baby Ace this past week. Mama Joyce asks Phaedra to help plan Kandi’s on camera shower. The photo at the top of this post is Kandi’s actual shower off camera.
Later, Phaedra goes to discuss the video with Todd again. Phaedra had the baby 12 hours after shooting the video. Even though Phaedra has no plans to release the video, but she says she is going to pay Todd on camera. HOWEVER, Phaedra herself says she only paid him half the balance recently.
Kenya is in Detroit to visit family and Aunt Lori and Brandon are there! YAY! I love me some Brandon. Aunt Lori is her mom’s big sister. Kenya’s parents were 15 and 16 when she was born. Her mother wanted to give her up for adoption. Her grandmother on her Dad’s side begged to keep Kenya and so she too her in at three days old. Her mother never had any further contact with her. Kenya really has no idea how to contact her. Aunt Lori doesn’t want to be put in the middle. No one wants Kenya to reconcile with her mother for some reason.
Brandon does a Walter impression. #Shade
Later, Kenya’s father says that Kenya’s mother’s father said that he didn’t want any more illegal (illegitimate) babies coming in the house and that is why she never had anything to do with Kenya. She wanted to keep things peaceful with her own father. Basically, her mother pretended like she never had a baby when she was around her father. Kenya’s dad says he has told her ever since she was a baby to never give her mother a second thought. Kenya explains that is not possible. The van stops outside of her mother’s house and Kenya goes to knock. Apparently, Kenya has tried this before and her mother never answers. We can hear Kenya say to her mother, “I heard you lock the door.” Kenya’s dad says she will never answer that door. Kenya keeps on knocking. Her dad goes to bring Kenya back to the van. Kenya heard her mother say, “Don’t answer the door.” This is sad and seems very real.
Kenya finally gets to the family reunion. It seems like mostly her dad’s side of the family. It’s a really sweet family. Kenya’s grandmother that raised her was there. It’s a very emotional experience for Kenya and her dad. Aunt Lori came and left. Probably because it was not her side of the family. Someone explains to Kenya that Lori was mad at Kenya for knocking on her mother’s door. Kenya is disappointed that no one from her mother’s side showed up.
Next Week: Some of the ladies go to the Million Man March. Where Kim Fields has the God given sense to pull her kids out of that whackadoodle Congresswoman’s office. Aunt Lori is pissed at Kenya. AND NENE is BACK. Ugh.
