I don’t know if it is the crap weather, or the fact that my days and nights are sort of backwards, or the lack of sunlight, or what but there just seems to be a big cloud of negativity everywhere. I guess it is sort of fitting for tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta because tonight we finally get Demetria. Word on the street is she is full of negativity for the first part of filming. Plus Apollo is back. The editing this season is crazy out of order and odd.
Kandi’s family is all getting together at Aunt Nora’s house for a cookout. Mama Joyce is mad at Kandi for talking about her boyfriend tearing up Kandi’s house. OMG! I want to eat some of all that! Oh dear, homemade red velvet cake!
Aunt Nora makes Kandi sit down and talk with her mother. Mama Joyce says she is taking medicine to try not and get an aneurism. She is trying to be calm. Nothing is resolved but they sort of agree to put things inside.
Phaedra stops over at Kandi’s and Kandi is trying to eat healthy because she wants to get pregnant. Phaedra says things are tense. Kandi has a cousin who just happens to be there to talk to Phaedra about how to tell her boys their daddy is going to prison. He has been to prison or something. This is a ridiculous scene and it’s clear Phaedra is not happy to be filming it. Oh Melvin’s dad is in prison and he resents not being told. I love the red leather handbag Phaedra is carrying. Kandi and Phaedra cry. Phaedra looks really pretty.
Kenya is doing a photoshoot with Cynthia who is directing the shoot. It looks like the shoot for SHEEN which I posted here. Claudia shows up to hang with #TeamPretty. Claudia is getting used to Atlanta. It is very easy to get lost here. Kenya and Claudia talk about wanting to date. Claudia wants them to go with her to a party that Roger Bobb is throwing. Roger Bobb lives in Claudia’s building. Hell, where is Claudia getting the money to live in the same building as Roger Bobb? Kenya says she knows Roger Bobb and that Claudia should consider dating him, because he is a great catch. Cynthia says that Demetria says she has been dating Roger Bobb for eight years. Kenya says she’s know Roger Bobb for years and he dates a lot of ladies. LOL! When Cynthia says that Demetria is pissed that Kenya didn’t deny dating Roger Bobb she says, ” If I had to deny every person the blogs try to tie me too, it would take me just as long as it would for some of these girls to grow their edges back. I’m not naming any names, Nene, I’m not.” /giggles
Kenya goes to meet with Roger Bobb about some projects she wants to work on. Roger Bobb is very sweet and almost flirtatious with Kenya. I think this is about her show she is producing now. It’s called something like “Twirl On” and it is in the casting stage. She mentions to Roger Bobb that his name came up and Roger Bobb claims Demetria as “his lady.” Kenya is a bit shocked. I still think this is Walter 2.0. Roger invites her to the party so she can network.
Nene is off to film her HS… SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECHHHHHHHHHH! What the mother fuck.? I don’t know how to proceed. I thought there was nothing more atrocious than that black Dolly Parton get up in her talking head, but I cannot explain what I am seing now. She has blond mop on her head. It’s like she has Lena Dunham’s hair on her head. I am now an extra ten minutes behind because I can’t figure this out. I actually really like the shirt after staring at her with the DVR paused but I mean there are no words. It looks like a bowl cut done with rusty garden shears. I also like she is her natural skin color in these talking heads, it’s a beautiful skin tone much better than when she makes her face 12 shades lighter than her body. The lips stick and makeup is nice. She needs a lip wax. It would have been just great with NORMAL HAIR.
Anyway, it’s time for Nene’s live HSM pitch and Gregg has a new murse to carry all of Nene’s tampons and body lotion in. According to Nene, she is going to “lunch” her product line. I do not like the way Nene talks about gay men. I can say things about “the gays” or “gays” but when she says it, it doesn’t seem to come from a place of love. And if there is one thing I will cut a bitch over it is if I feel even a twinge that someone is being disrespectful to gay men.
Her show is from midnight until 3. Nene is fading fast. That “cold shoulder tunic” I said I liked when I first saw it, sold out. She was supposed to return the next morning but I don’t think she did.
Cynthia is back at work and looking stunning. Demetria arrives at The Bailey Agency and she wants some help from Cynthia for her PR for her next single. Peter shows up at The Agency. I get this is all about production, but for what reason does Peter need to show up to the agency in the middle of the work day when he has two businesses of his own that need attention? Demetria seems thirsty for a man, yet she is supposedly dating Roger Bobb. Demetria says she has been dating Roger Bobb for eight years. Now I have seen Roger Bobb out with plenty of women who are not Demetria. Roger Bobb is her manager. This smacks of shades of Kenya season one. Cynthia says she has kwown Roger Bobb for years and she has never heard him mention a girlfriend. Demetria claims that because they both worked for Tyler Perry most of the time it was kept on the downlow. This is all fabrication in my opinion. I have no source to back me up on this but it just doesn’t pass the smell test for me. Sorry, Demetria.
Demetria wants to have a PR party and tells Cynthia to invite all the Atlanta people she knows. She mentions Claudia and Kenya. Immediately, Demetria has an issue with Kenya. Last season at Peter’s birthday party, Kenya, Roger, Cyntha and Peter took photos together. Kenya and Roger Bobb shared a conversation over a few drinks. The tabloids tried to make it a thing. BECAUSE ROGER BOBB dates a lot of women. Demetria seems to think that Kenya should have denied the rumors. Hell, if Kenya spent time denying everything that people say about her she would not have time to do anything else. Cynthia points out that “the blogs” ran a story about Peter being out with a hot younger woman at an event. It was his daughter. She tells Demetria not to believe everything you hear about Kenya.
So everyone shows up to Demetria’s video release party (except Nene). When Claudia came in she said something about Roger inviting her when he stopped by Dish Nation. Demetria says that Roger won’t be here because of some last minute editing situation. Demetria tells Claudia she is really wanting Roger Bobb to propose. Kenya strolls in last with her GBF Brandon who looks really hot this season. Everyone is confused that Roger Bobb is not coming since he invited both Claudia and Kenya and it’s his “girlfriend’s” bit video premiere.
Demetria and Kenya greet each other. Demetria is pissy with Kenya. Kenya says she and Roger Bobb are business partners. Everything seems cool. And then Apollo shows up. Brandon is very gracious Apollo and greets him with no hard feelings. Apollo hugs Phaedra and asks for a kiss. She does, and then he says it was an “ugly kiss.” Apollo has Phaedra move over and sit next to her. You can tell production blindsided Phaedra. Apollo is trying to be all macho and Phaedra points out that Apollo is never home as I mentioned when all of this was being filmed. This is all very uncomfortable and I feel bad for Phaedra. Kenya is mocking the whole situation in her talking head.
Demetria’s night sucks too. First, “her man” doesn’t show up, and then her big video premier fails because of technical difficulties. Poor thing. People decide to just leave.
Next week: Phaedra talks to her mother about Apollo. Phaedra thinks Apollo should be more focused on the kids. Kandi and Todd argue more. And Nene invites Kenya and Cynthia for drinks to talk and an argument breaks out. Porsha is there and she attacks Kenya and Kenya gets up and walks out.
I need about a 15 minute break before WWHL y’all but I will be doing it next. I just need a laptop break and a stretch.
