I can’t wait for us to get to know Claudia Jordan tonight! First, Cynthia and Porsha talk about Cynthia’s party. Porsha throws shade right of the bat toward Cynthia saying she started out as little Nene and now she is baby Kenya. Porsha is so funny in these scenes talking about Claudia. This is before she knew that Claudia was there to snatch her peach. Phaedra finally shows up to the pow wow with Porsha and Kandi. BTW, they are at some high-end bar in Atlanta and Phaedra and Porsha are dressed to the nines and Phaedra is in yoga pants and a tank top. Phaedra asks how Cynthia’s party was because she missed it. Nope, she was tipped off and kept right on driving after arriving at Bar One. Anyway, Kandi tells the story. Kandi tells Phaedra (and that other one)about Apollo lying about everything related to Kenya.
Phaedra acts SHOCKED! Shocked I tell you! She was 8 months pregnant at the time Apollo was telling her this and it just added to the stress. Now this puts her under more stress. Wow, Phaedra admits that she owes Kenya an apology. She doesn’t think Kenya is Mother Teresa but she is woman enough to have a conversation and apologize and move forward. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kandi says, “Not just you all of us.” The editing is shady and it looks like Porsha is agreeing. In her talking head Kandi says she feels bad for Kenya. Phaedra says, “Oh that’s terrible. Poor Kenya.”
Meanwhile Kenya and her aunt are at Lush Life landscaping. It’s a really pretty setting. Her aunt suggests she consider a cactus since she has a tendency to kill flowers. Her aunt is suggesting Kenya find forgiveness for all of them, especially Porsha. They flash to a montage of Porsha and Nene and Phaedra saying vile things about Kenya at the last reunion. Kenya is struggling to forgive. She says she would be willing if they were willing to reach out to her first. Her Aunt tries to coax Kenya to be the bigger person. Kenya dramatically spouts off some Shakespeare (Iago from Othello if you are interested.)
Cynthia and Peter talk about Kenya and wanting to apologize to her. Cynthia really likes Claudia. Cynthia talks about Porsha being all up in Nene’s rear end. Meanwhile Cynthia is cooking in an immaculate kitchen with one pot and a moment later they are eating dinner, bowtie pasta, with shrimp and a sauce. How did that happen with one pot? Anyway Cynthia says when she moved out of her penthouse suite up Nene’s ass, it appears Porsha moved in. Cynthia admits to having implants. I had forgotten that. Hers look very real.
Kandi and Todd seem to disagree on having a baby. Todd says he is going to be in and out-of-town for the next four months. I swear these two did not discuss anything but money before they got married.
Claudia and Kenya go shopping for furniture for Claudia’s new apartment. Claudia describes herself as a loveable asshole. She has known Kenya for over 10 years. Claudia struggled as a kid with being biracial. She divorced. Kenya and Claudia discuss being bad at picking men. Kenya says things have ended with the guy in Africa because neither was willing to relocate. He dreams of marriage and a baby have been put on hold. The new plan seems to be for these two to run the streets together and just have some fun for awhile. OMG Kenya and Claudia are the exact same brand of crazy.
Nene goes to visit Porsha. Nene says her doorbell doesn’t work. No joke, Nene. Nene says that in her talking head that basically Porsha is dating some African man for dollars. Too bad she pissed him off very quickly. Poor thing. Also, Nene couldn’t wait to hint at Porsha’s hooking even though Porsha is her new minion for the season. She just can’t help knocking people down. I guess she is pissed that she bought a new Land Rover for the season and Porsha briefly had a Bentley loaned to her.
For some reason Porsha needs to explain to Nene what a THOT is. I guess Porsha has been called a THOT so much lately that she just learned that it meant “That Ho Over There” and decided to enlighten Nene with her word of the day. Porsha is talking hella trash about Cynthia’s Ebony layout as if it was less than tasteful. It was not. It was lovely. I wasn’t fond of the photographers choices with some of the photos but Cynthia on her worst day looks better than Porsha on her best, honey. Porsha actually calls Cynthia a THOT. Nene and Porsha then start trashing Phaedra and Apollo. Laughing together about the boys being young enough to call some new man Daddy. Is this the same Nene that was talking about being a rock for Phaedra? Tonight she bounced that rock right off Phaedra’s head. And for Nene to be so salty about Claudia already, you know this scene was filmed in post production. The same thing for Porsha’s disdain for Cynthia. This was filmed after all the drama. Porsha is REALLY trying hard to hold on to that peach, but it didn’t work. Posha just went hard in the paint at Cynthia and at the end she says she needs to sit down with Cynthia and sort out their misunderstanding. Really?
Apollo goes to see Nene’s favorite divorce attorney for advice. It’s hysterical. He says things are not flowing the way things are supposed to flow. Apollo says that he wants to know what he can do if Phaedra files for divorce while he is in prison. The answer is nothing, which is why Phaedra waited until he was locked up to file. Apollo is afraid of coming out of prison and having to work at McDonalds. Apollo seems to think he is above any sort of blue collar job and is already talking about returning to a life of crime if he doesn’t get a settlement from Phaedra. He also says he despises everything about Phaedra, but he loves her. He’s like one of them there lyrical geniuses, y’all.
I have nothing to say about the Kandi and Todd blended family thing.
Cynthia goes to meet Porsha who is an hour late. This is already going badly before Porsha gets there. They go after each other right away. Porsha is a cunt. Porsha calls Cynthia a flip flopper saying she had her side at first regarding her attacking Kenya (not true, Cynthia supported Kenya from the moment it happened.) in Cynthia’s talking head says that word on the street is that Porsha is flip flopping on a mattress with a married man for cars and handbags. Ooops. Who is the THOT now, Porsha? Next Porsha is stupid enough to discuss on TV that she did a video where she preached about not liking gays (and likened gay people to prostitutes which is ironic because that is basically what she is now if the rumors are to be believed.)
Eventually, nothing is resolved and Cynthia just walks out on the THOT.
