First of all, my thoughts are with our friends in Sydney tonight as some sort of terrorist situation is going on there. Everyone be safe.
We are right back where we left last week with Nene running her ugly mouth at Cynthia and Cynthia just sitting there watching Nene implode. I just noticed Porsha’s hair. If that is her hair line it looks like some really good hair. She’s a great spokesperson for the hairline too. The whole find someone pretty and dumb as a bag of weave must be making the company giggle. A lot. Anyway, Nene screams at Cynthia like a banshee and walks off.
Nene comes back, dabbing her eyes and Phaedra says to Kandi, “Maybe we should let them have a moment.” Which we know really means, “Hey, let’s try to go get a drink before this bar shuts all the way down. I need a chicken wang or somethin’.” (Nightmare recount of filming this scene here.) So everyone tries to make a break for it and leave Cynthia to deal with Nene.
Cynthia tries to tell Nene why she does not want to be her friend. Nene will not listen. I am concerned about Nene’s nose. I’m being serious. I know we like to joke about it growing back, but it’s just not normal. She needs to have that looked into and see if she has a medical issue. Not even kidding.
So the ladies stand around and Phaedra starts muttering about Jesus. Then Phaedra says “let’s get out of here!” and they all left and went to Chik-Fil-A or something.
Later Nene and Cynthia debriefed their husbands. Peter tells Cynthia she is a fool for making up with Nene. Gregg tells Nene she should make-up with Cynthia. Nene doesn’t understand that Cynthia doesn’t control Peter the way that she controls Gregg.
Oh Jesus, Phaedra is about to do a scene where she pretends she is a practicing attorney. I can’t already. My sources say that the office where they film these scenes is not even her office but another’s attorney’s space that allows Bravo to film there for a fee. I do recall this bizarre lawsuit against Derek J. Or maybe I am thinking of this one where the crazy dude with a gun came busting into his shop because he felt he stole his client.
Phaedra is talking about how now that Derek J is a celebrity people will come out of the woodwork with outrageous stories. Is she talking about Derek J or herself?
Later we waste time with Phaedra going to the J Spot.
Cynthia is also in NYC to walk in New York Fashion Week. And she gets to close the show! Her friend the designer tells her that her ass is too fat and her walk is too slow. He actually has another model show here how the young girls walk these days and calls her “granny city’! Oh the shade of it all!
The 40 minute mark was Kenya and Claudia at a cooking lesson. So cute.
Kenya comes in to town to support Cynthia in her show. Leon and Peter are both there taking video of her walk. She did great. I hated her hair. Cynthia also walked for Betsey Johnson while she was there.
Kandi goes to NYC to meet with Todd. Kandi is acting like taking a train is the grossest thing in the world. Todd is taking her to the Bronx to see where he grew up. Kandi could care less about anything until they stopped for pizza. It did look like good pizza.
That night Kandi and Todd have dinner with Cynthia and Peter at Spice. Cynthia can’t really eat because of her show the next day.
At dinner the producers make a point of showing that Todd does not wear a wedding ring. Peter says that his mother is still pissed that Cynthia’s mother tried to hide the marriage certificate. Todd is so mad he is nearly crying because Kandi is not sympathic. Every week, we learn this marriage is more and more doomed.
Kandi and Todd meet Mama Sharon (May she R.I.P.) at Sammy’s Fish Bar. Todd wants his Mama to come live in Atlanta. She is not interested. Sharon calls Kandi out for lying to Todd about what Mama Joyce said about her. (Which is truth.) Kandi cops an attitude and says “this lady think she is fixin’ to damn snap on me?!” Kandi is disrespectful to her husband and her mother-in-law. Sharon says she will punch Joyce in the mouth.
Sharon has had quite a few margaritas and is now running her mouth about “consequences” for Mama Joyce. Suddenly I find myself thinking about Mama Joyce watching this episode…and I’m not even going to say it but I know what that witch is thinking.
Next week: More Phaedra and Apollo drama. I did not know that Phaedra went to the Charlotte opening of Bar One. She can’t be shocked that Apollo was there, Peter and Apollo always film together. And Demetria shows up and we start to understand how she managed to lose her peach.
I’m off to recap WWHL. So try to wait for me!
