I have no idea how it is already 8 pm. Between the mean girls of Daily Tea and the technical work I am trying to complete on the site, I am really not ready for any more bitching or crying or things to make my brain hurt any more than it already does.
We start the episode in the same cookie cutter fashion as every other episode. Tonight Phaedra, Porsha and Sheree will recap their version of last week’s episode while Kenya tells Matt her version of what went down. Sheree pulled her Porsche out of the storage unit for this scene. Phaedra is proud to be out in public with camel toe. Matt is just irritating a fuck. He was filming with Kenya since day one and then a few weeks later he’s all up on Instagram acting all brand new like he rolled up to Moore Manor and was pissed there was a film crew there. Boy, please. Kenya seems to think he is the sane person in her life. Girl…. you in danger. And Sheree is delusional as fuck. Soon, Phaedra is going to come to the realization that she is doing herself no favors trying to be in the THOT alliance.
Kandi, Todd and her assistants have a meeting at the Kandi Factory about doing some sort of block party for the opening of OLG. That appears to be what we saw in the footage here. That was just filmed two weeks ago. During the meeting, Riley’s Dad’s girlfriend just struts right into the meeting claiming she just happened to be in the neighborhood. Riley’s dad, Block, has gone years at a time without seeing his daughter. So Kandi is at a loss about what this woman she barely knows is doing in her office. The girlfriend seems to imply that the reason Block doesn’t see Riley is because of Kandi’s attitude toward him. Oh.Noe.She.Didn’t. Later Kandi’s tells Riley about the visit and she is not interested in the situation at all, especially since the girlfriend and not her father is the one bringing it up.
I can’t explain this scene with Bob and Sheree at “Bob’s house.” Bob is sweating like a pig. Bob is taking his fake interest in Sheree to the next level. Sheree says the only hooking up she is doing is the electricity at Chateau She Can’t Pay. Why bother with electricity when you have no HVAC or kitchen appliances? I heard about this scene about Bob joking about moving into the correctional facility with Sheree but I was under the impression it was in the kitchen at Chateau Thelma. Weird.
Cynthia and her mother and Malorie get together to support Cynthia through her divorce. Malorie announces that she has spoken to Peter a couple of times recently. Malorie says that Peter told her that he misses his wife. Well, Peter, when you move to another state in the middle of your marriage, that’s sort of par for the course.
Meanwhile in THOTlandia, Porsha tells Phaedra about rekindling her relationship with the her ex boyfriend because she wants some of his sperm. I suppose that will work out fine since the kids he already has emancipated themselves from him because he’s a deadbeat dad who is allegedly on welfare. At least she won’t have to worry about him trying to stick around. And he gets a free trip to Maui and a room at the Four Seasons to procreate in. She claims that Todd, the ex boyfriend/future sperm donor is “a lobbyist.” Is that what you call someone who sits in the lobby of the welfare office waiting for an EBT card? Because honey, that’s what the streets are saying around here. Porsha is talking about him being a great father to his two kids who are 14 and 16. Okay, I just went to reread my previous post and here is that clip from Industry On Blast. It does claim that Porsha has no idea that Todd is a deadbeat dad. Because Porsha is dumb and the last thing she needs to do is procreate.
Industry on Blast claims that Todd Stewart, who is Porsha’s latest “boyfriend.” is seeking visitation of his two children ages 17 and 15 who petitioned the District of Columbia Court for emancipation in 2014 and want no further contact.
Word is they [the kids] have not spoken to Todd Stewart in Two years after he was closely involved all their natural lives and their relationship ended in a screeching halt once they left the home of his parents in DC where both boys lived mainly while Todd traveled. Most recently they heard she might be trying to have a baby with their father meanwhile he offers no support to either teen nor attempts any contact except through court petitions to their mother. Evidently he doesn’t want to appear to be the total dead beat dad that the boys have proclaimed to DC courts most recently. His oldest son Toren has a promising football career and is currently being kept by his brother who coaches and Todd’s Father who is a notable man in DC, Willie Stewart.
Meanwhile Todd has always pranced around with NFL players after a failed football career as a TERP but has finally hit jackpot with Ms. Porsha Stewart who has no clue about his estranged sons nor has met them although loves her new Bae unaware of his questionable past as a dad. Can she remain a RHOA with Todd since on record In DC he is on Welfare and makes well below the poverty line and can’t pay anything for support, he lost custody of both children in 2014 after his parents were tired of raising his kids. Maybe that’s whose EBT card Porsha was caught with in ATL!!
Later we meet Todd at a Krav Maga class that Porsha is taking. I assume she is there to improve her skills for her next violent beat down. Genius move, Bravo. You can tell these two don’t know each other. Porsha claims she dated him when she was 22 at that time, 13 years ago he would have already had the kids. She claims they reconnected when she was on a press tour for Dish Nation in DC. I believe that is where she spotted him for the first time and cast him as her future baby daddy. Todd says he doesn’t just want to make a baby for her. He would want a relationship. And you know a roof over his head and a joint credit card. So they will continue to negotiate terms.
Matt and Kenya are driving to Cincinnati for Matt’s family reunion. Kenya pleads with him to just let her buy them two first class tickets and they can be there in an hour, but Matt thinks the car ride will be a bonding experience. I totally expect Kenya to fly her ass home when it’s time to come back.
The meeting with Matt’s parents, sister and five year old niece is extremely uncomfortable. Kenya basically answers the mother’s question of “What are your intentions with my son?” By friendzoning Matt and calling him immature. This doesn’t seem to sit well with the family. Then Kenya sort of backtracks to say that she would not be sitting there with them if she didn’t think there could be some type of a future. Kenya picks up the check.
At the reunion we see a sweet scene with Kenya dancing with all the little girls in the family. It’s kind of heartbreaking knowing how much she wants a baby girl of her own. Then Hallison, Matt’s sister pulls her aside to talk to her. She’s very skeptical of the relationship. Kenya is really emotional talking to Matt’s mother. She sees her as a mother that is choosing her when her own mother did not. Is it Matt’s mother that is the draw in this relationship?
Kandi and Sheree
Sheree is the most delusional woman on planet earth. She talks about how Bob was the issue with the divorce when she knows it was all over the news that she appealed her divorce settlement all the way to the State Supreme Court and lost all the way up. She spent the vast majority of her divorce settlement on lawyers and even they had to sue her to get paid. This woman loves dragging people to court even though she has never won a case in her life. It’s shocking to me how she can just sit in lie. I saw her do it on the witness stand under oath.
Kandi cries telling Sheree about Block’s girlfriend coming over. This is an odd person for them to pair Kandi with.
Then we get a scene with Block and Kris with Lena and her husband, RL. Now I understand why Lena is out. This right here is what lost her a peach. Why the hell is she filming this scene talking about Kandi’s daughter? Kris says that Kandi has shut Block completely out of Riley’s life.
While Sheree and Kandi are talking, Kandi mentions that Porsha has slept with Block, as well. Of course she has. It would be easier just to make a list of who Porsha has NOT slept with at this point. Kandi says that Riley would reach out to her dad and they would make plans to get together and he would not show up. She also says that when Kandi was pregnant he called her and told her he didn’t want to have anything to do with the baby. Kandi is crying hard when she tells Sheree about that call. She says she told Block that was fine with her because she will make sure her baby has what it needs and that he will need her before she needs him. So much family angst today. Kandi talks about Riley back when she still wished she had a father.
Next week looks like more tears. And it looks like the Bravo cameras went to LA with Cynthia when she went to stay with Leon!
