Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.
We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”
Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight. Interesting. Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.
Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up. Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine.
Okay it is time to talk about the hair. Nene has been trying to claim that this hair was for a job she was working and Phaedra called her over unexpectedly to film. Bullshit. They have set call times. Also, she tried to show herself in this Bride of Frankenstein wig where it looked slightly better. She says it just got worse as filming went on at Phaedra’s. Nope she already has it pulled back in some sort of a band. Also, and most importantly, Nene is arriving to Phaedra’s house painted white. That didn’t happen until filming was all done so this is YET ANOTHER scene at Phaedra’s filmed after everything was done because both Phaedra and Nene walked off the set and refused to film a lot during the end of the season. So whatever this is, is some bullshit.
This is the first time Nene has been allowed to film at Phaedra’s home. Phaedra has been super selective about filming in her house. Also, Phaedra, being the good friend that she is tells Nene her hair looks fine. These fake ass scenes months after the actual events happened are damn ridiculous. The only thing to talk about is he ridiculous wig. In this scene it does actually have the white sperm marks on the side. It’s just like Magenta from Rocky Horror.
Phaedra says that Nene has been a better friend than Kandi. Nene is stirring the pot.
Phaedra appears to have a new office to film in. She has made sure to put The Parks Group signage on these doors. My understanding is she used to rent a space to film at in previous seasons that was not her actual office. I’ll have to ask my sources next time I speak to them if this is actually her office or not. What I have been told is she only comes on to film.
Kandi shows up to talk to Phaedra about their personal issues. Kandi seems clinically depressed. She is always on the verge of tears. I dunno if it’s a hormonal issue or if she is really two breaths away from crying at all times. She really does seem very emotional all the time. I feel bad for Kandi. Phaedra talks a lot of shit about Cynthia.
Nene arrives in a green mechanics jumpsuit like she has just come off a shift at Minute Lube. She also brings in a giant handbag and some sort of luggage. Nene starts talking about everyone having a grown woman conversation. Nene immediately points out that Kenya was not at the lunch where the sessions were discussed. Dr. Jeff immediately picks up on a reaction by Kenya and asks her about it. She says she was not invited to the luncheon and that is part of the problem that she is having with the group. Nene is already doing her usual over talking and getting loud and rude routine. Clearly this is not going to last long. Dr. Jeff points this out and says he is there to represent everyone and make sure that everyone is heard. Out of nowhere Nene jumps on Dr. Jeff saying that he is not there to represent her and she “don’t know him like that.” And we are off to the races. Claudia’s eyes are as big as pancakes when Nene start being disrespectful to the therapist that she brought in.
Dr. Jeff goes through Kenya, Claudia and now Cynthia about issues they each have. Cynthia brings up that Nene called Peter a bitch. Nene screams at Cynthia saying she is not a victim. Dr. Jeff says that Nene is talking over Cynthia. Cynthia says that is what Nene does. Nene tells Cynthia she is a mean girl. It’s Kandi’s turn. Kandi says Nene also has to say that she was the first one on the show and everyone comes for her. Kandi says that as a matter of fact Nene goes after all the new people. Kandi brings up Nene throwing Cynthia under the bus on WWHL. Nene gets up and packs her suitcases and storms out. Dr. Jeff goes after her and Nene keeps trying to shake them. While they are out of the room, everyone except Porsha (why is she there again?) talks about how Nene can’t admit to any wrongdoing or hear anything negative about herself.
Next week: Therapy continues. Nene tells Dr. Jeff that he needs to be worried about his therapist license. Really? Therapy continues with the rest of the group. Phaedra “appears” to file for divorce
