Kandi has called in a stylist for a date with Todd. Normally, I would find this ridiculous, but this is Kandi we are talking about. Did you see what she wore in Manila? But this guy is NOT the stylist. He brings her some leopard crap. She needs to hire Shun Melson.
On the date he says he made the date because it is their therapy “homework.” And we are off to a bad start. Things continue to get worse. Todd asks her if she is ovulating. Kandi says she didn’t know if they would make it to their upcoming one year anniversary. And she answers his ovulation question by saying her period is about to start. Seriously. Sex toys, enemas and periods all in the first 20 minutes. Kandi asks if Todd still wants a baby. His show got a second season which is going to mean more time apart and the timing is bad. Kandi says they have an appointment with the fertility doctor. Todd wants to go to L.A. for a month and a half. Kandi says she doesn’t think they should go more than 2 weeks without seeing her. Todd wants Kandi to come to L.A. with him for the whole time.
So I was trying to get my work area set up to blog (AKA grabbing a snack, in this case literally popcorn) and I come in the room and I’m trying to figure out who this woman is Cynthia is talking to. It’s Noelle! When did she turn 35? Why is Cynthia asking Noelle who her date to Homecoming is as she is getting dressed to leave? This script makes no sense. Apparently, the script also includes Kenya coming over to help Cynthia parent her child. Why is Cynthia asking Kenya about the pilot when Cynthia is in it ? Shouldn’t she know? This whole scene is weird. Why is Kenya mentoring Cynthia’s kid how to walk? Oh wait, at least Cynthia pointed that out.
Cynthia and Peter chat about the trip. Cynthia is unhappy her butt is getting so big. It is looking bigger. Cynthia is trying to get Peter to help her with the Jamaican accent her character has on Life Twirls On.
The :40 mark out take was of Kenya acting in the show as a knife wielding bride. Cute!
Gregg takes Nene to Sardi’s. Nene thinks she is a real New Yorker. Brentt is having a good time playing hooky and hanging out in New York. Gregg points out that Brentt needs rules. Nene doesn’t seem to think so. Nene’s parenting track record leaves much to be desired.
Phaedra has a scene with her assistant to discuss the things she stuck up her butt in Manila. I am not kidding. Speaking of this assistant chick, she is apparently no longer in Phaedra’s employ. The neighbors have not seen her for weeks. Just Phaedra’s mom and the nannies. Is it weird there are so many photos of Apollo on her office shelf? I suppose it is just good that she put some in there. Didn’t there used to be the pictures of the family of the white person whose off she was borrowing in the background? Did she get more lip injections or has she always looked like that? BTW, this “men’s rally” that Phaedra is pretending to set up was not her event. She was just there.
Did she just say she has a friend at the White House? The person she is calling is David J. Johns, executive director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African-Americans. I wonder if he knows he is now associated with the bogus charity, Save Our Sons? I hate that Phaedra cannot pronounce the words “success” or “Let’s.”
At the charity event, Kandi’s absence is explained as due to a prior appointment with a fertility doctor. This is most likely a lie. Kandi knows when her shooting schedule is. Phaedra is escorted to the podium by a marching percussion section. Once again, I am not making this up. She gives her speech with Dylan on her hip. Phaedra’s Apostle of the Apothecary was also in attendance. Can that girl pick ’em or what?
As I told you when this all went down, Nene was the last to arrive and did not stay long. Nene says she came to Atlanta just for Phaedra’s event. I do believe that, Nene was hosting some kinda hoe down in NYC the night before. Do they have hoe downs in NYC?
At dinner service, Phaedra puts Porsha at the meat station. While I am snickering about the subtle shade, dumb ho Porsha shouts out “I’m familiar with that! No pun intended.” Girl, go with what you know you Princess of THOTland.
Nene and Claudia start getting into it right away. Claudia was coming for Nene. Nene says she thought the whole therapy session was phony and they all were wrong for ganging up on her. Nene looks great by the way, not in the hideous talking head but in the kitchen. Her ramen noodle wig is all brushed out and not rameny at all. While the ladies are bickering in the kitchen, Peter is trying to take over the discussion among the men. Claudia points out that Nene always storms out when she doesn’t like something, AS NENE is storming out. Kenya arrived late and got there just as the fight was going down. Kenya pretty much had to grab Claudia to keep her from chasing after Nene. All of the people in attendance heard the arguing. And one reported it all to me!
Nene jerks poor Gregg up out of there before he even gets to eat his green beans. Nene goes off in her talking head talking about the bitches in the kitchen who are not mothers to black sons who are acting like a black fool. Again, I don’t think she should be focusing our attention on her parenting. Nene is overreacting, but she does seem really stressed.
The Life Twirls On pilot is ready to be shot. We get to see Cynthia shoot her scene. Kenya says she is hoping to get the pilot done in time for pilot season (late February). Kenya is reporting that the show is “coming soon” and we all hope that is true. However, had it been picked up by Bravo during pilot season, it would have been mentioned during the recent upfronts when the other new shows were listed. Likewise, networks have made decisions on their pilot pick-ups by now. So I’m not overly optimistic. I suppose we can still hope.
Next Week: WAIT NEXT WEEK? I thought that was the season finale. Will this season NEVER END? Nene’s play is shown, Kandi announces she is going to L.A. with Todd for a couple of months, Kenya has a Life Twirls On party, Peter rents new bar space without consulting Cynthia, and Apollo calls Peter ON CAMERA! Okay maybe we do need one more week.
