I’m really not looking forward to recapping this mess. After last week’s episode I’d be done with this show all together if I didn’t have to recap it for you guys. Add that to the fact that the weather has been so depressing lately and my narcolepsy is back and I’m warning you in advance not to expect too much.
We are back in Jamaica where Sheree is dutifully carrying out the producers directive to inform Kim Fields that all of the ladies except for Cynthia were gossiping about some gay rumors that concern her husband Chris. Kim says that she and her husband have been happily married for ten years. She leaves it at that. Sheree says that she Googled and with a couple of the other girls and the gay rumors were all there. Kenya jumps in to throw even more gasoline on the fire saying, “We don’t care if your husband is gay or if y’all are having tax problems or whatever…or any other kind of problems…” Really Kenya? Nobody was talking about her tax problems. This is really very messy. Kenya says to Kim that she tries to portray this perfect life but everything is not perfect and she apparently feels comfortable speaking for everyone saying that they just want the real Kim Fields to show up. As if any of them are real on this show.
Kim excuses herself for the evening and goes to bed. Kenya is pissed that no one else really admitted what they did. I think when she ran in with her pitchfork poised for Kim she expected the rest of them to join in the attacks. But they didn’t. Instead, people seem disgusted with Kenya.
Speaking of disgusting, we next see Porsha and her “date. Ugh. The next morning, Nene has breakfast with Kim. Phaedra arrives late because apparently it took some time to get into her Yankee Doodle Dandy costume. I just don’t know how to describe this monstrosity of bows and oversized sun hat. Nene feels bad for participating in the gay bashing fest two nights ago. Phaedra acts like she had nothing to do with any of it. She tells Kim that Kenya did the same thing to her and we get a flashback to Kenya talking about how Phaedra married a felon. That’s really not the same thing. What Kenya said about Apollo was true and Phaedra gave as good as she got when it came to her interactions with Kenya. In this case Kim has done anything but be a bit full of herself. And none of them are innocent when it comes to that. Phaedra says she needs to chop the head off the snake. Both Nene and Phaedra are winding Kim up for another confrontation. Kim says she is not going down to that level. Kim says she needs to go to read school. Phaedra and Nene role play. It’s ridiculous. Phaedra jumps up and twirls.
Next we see Kandi and Todd take the Old Lady Gang do a menu tasting for the new restaurant. Aunt Bertha is not on board with the whole restaurant idea. Everyone loves everything except for Bertha. But Bertha eventually comes around.
Back in Jamaica, Kim talks to Chris on the phone and he says all the ladies have their own nasty rumors on the Internet. He suggests they discuss everyone’s mugshots.
Everyone heads out to a water fall where they have to get in the river and climb up slippery rocks. Everyone except Nene and Gregg who opt to walk up the dry path. It did seem ridiculous for them to be wading in waist high water in their clothes. Kenya and Matt the fitness pair get to the top first. Everyone seems annoyed with Kenya today. Everyone else treated the experience like a teamwork activity and formed a chain to get each other up the waterfall safely.
Nene has a new talking head with her swollen boobs hanging out. They look painful. After the falls they take off to find some jerk chicken. Which is appropriate because most of them are acting like jerks. I’m leaving out all of Phaedra’s sexual innuendos. Because, gross. They guys and the girls eat at separate tables. The girls ask Kenya about Matt. She says she is just taking things one step at a time. Peter tells Matt that they have all been around Kenya for a while. Peter says “she’s beautiful people” and a bit misunderstood at time but he loves her. Matt says, “me too.” Porsha talks about her “date.” Once again she says this one might be a keeper.
Nene brings up her breakfast with Kim and Phaedra. Nene tells Kenya that Kim doesn’t understand what her problem is. Kenya shoots back something about Nene being Kim’s therapist now. Kim says that she can’t tolerate Kenya’s disrespect. So going forward there should be no communication or cordial communication. Kim says at the end of the day, she’s not going to talk about her family or he and its’ highly unfair and disrespectful. Kenya says “Congratulations for being able to speak for yourself.” Cynthia stops Kenya and says this is how things go wrong between the two of them. Kenya tells Kim she doesn’t hate her, she is indifferent to her. I don’t think indifferent means what Kenya things it means. She comes for Kim all the time, like she has an issue of some sort, most likely jealousy. That’s not indifferent. Kenya says she can be cordial. In her talking head, Kenya says that Kim is not going to come for her time and time again. Maybe it’s the editing but that is not the way I see it. Kenya has a problem with Kim. It’s a simple as that. Cynthia brings up the chair incident and says that she owes Kim an apology for that. Kenya does apologize for the chair incident.
Cynthia thinks that the issues between Kenya and Kim are really more about Cynthia than each other. That might be the case. Cynthia, Sheree and Nene get together and talk about the Kim and Kenya situation. Cynthia wants to talk to Nene since she is now the group thereapist about her own issue with Kenya. She whips out a list of issues she has with Kenya. Really Cynthia? None of this is appropriate. If you have issues with Kenya, take them up with Kenya. Her issues are ridiculous. Did anyone stop to think that the reason Kenya and Matt went as far out in the paddle boat as they did was to stay out of the shot? They were literally filming everywhere and Kenya was not in the commercial.
Everyone gets together for one last party before they leave the next day. Of course the two Ps twerk and act ridiculous. Kenya was not at the pre dinner festivities and late to dinner. Bob tells everyone he is hoping for a reconciliation with Sheree. I’m not really hearing that on the streets. In fact everyone is rather mystified that he agreed to go on this trip. But remember, this was the season where everyone needed a man and Sheree was still vying for a peach.
Kenya and Matt seem to get along very well. Matt gets called out for his “me too” comment and he says that he told Peter that in response to him saying it.
Kenya and Cynthia talk about the commercial debacle. Nene gives her speech about always being around and never going anywhere. Kenya gives a teary eyed apology for not supporting Cynthia more in her commercial endeavor.
If I never hear them say ” ‘mercial” again that would be just great.
Next week: Phaedra takes the boys to Fort Dix.
