Tonight we get to see what the fight was about that Matt and Kenya and Kenya’s father got into outside an Atlanta restaurant. Check out the real time filming info on that here. Actually, that post is quite long and full of Matt tantrums both in Atlanta and Charlotte. It should give you perspective about what was going on in real time.
We start at Phaedra’s house tonight where all the nannies and baby sitters have been shoved in a closet somewhere so she can play mommy for the cameras. In cast you missed it, Phaedra is moving into a new, very price home is the Sandy Springs/ Mount Paran area. Oh she is not going to play mama, Porsha is. Porsha is there to babysit so that she can get used to being around kids or something. Porsha just needs a storyline, so babysitter it is. Porsha decides she might need a man to help her raise kids. So she will be pursuing her deadbeat baby Daddy with even more intensisty.
Since she is desperate for a storyline that isn’t about her unfinished house, Sheree decides to pimp out Kairo for some construction cash. Bob jumps in on the camera time too. Sheree says several times that she is the momager. She thinks she is Kris Jenner now. Heaven help us all.
Later Sheree and Kairo meet up with Cynthia to talk about his modeling and her divorce. Sheree thinks Kairo is ready for New York Fashion Week.
Speaking of the need for divine intervention. It’s time for the sad Kenya scenes. Her story starts with shots of the damage Matt did to her beloved house. This is just one of the times Matt vandalized her house. I wonder if they will show the rest. Despite her never calling the police, Matt was still arrested four time this year for other things. Kenya calls her dad to talk about Matt. Her daddy says to put him on a plane as soon as possible. He is worried that Matt’s violent behavior will escalate.
When Kenya’s dad shows up, he gives an academy award winning performance over the broken garage windows. Kenya continues to defend Matt. She has been doing this for months. I think now, in real time Kenya may finally be done. I hope so.
Next we find Kenya and her daddy in a cigar lounge waiting on Matt. He’s late because he is having yet another meltdown and production is just trying to get him there. Kenya has 17 messages from Matt who is refusing to show up. Her dad tries calling him. The phone call doesn’t go well. Then he seems to sort of pop up out of nowhere. The overall mood of the scene is now glum. Kenya’s dad basically holds a therapy session. This is some real shit here. I’ve heard about her having this conversation with several people. Not just her father. I wish she had not taken to long to free herself from this situation.
Matt is whiny. He says that Kenya puts hims to work around the house. Newsflash. He was living there. He sounds like a teenager that doesn’t want to clean his room. His smartass mouth escalates the conversation to the point that Kenya says she’s ready to go. Outside, filming continues. Kenya’s dad tells Matt, if this is the real thing, you need to find a way to make it work; if it’s not go get in your truck and don’t look back. Sadly, there are months and months of the same old shit ahead.
Cynthia’s offer on the lake house was accepted. This my exclusive from when she put her house on the market and bought the lake house.
There will probably be more Kandi photos than necessary in this post because Kandi makes some great faces this episode.
Kandi meets with her office staff to discuss the restaurant. Phaedra’s assistant calls to schedule a lunch with Phaedra and Kandi. Kandi tells the story from last week when Phaedra tried to say that Drama was just trying to drop off some CDs for her and the Kandi and the entire staff laugh at the absurdity of that lie.
While Kandi and her crew are laughing, we get dueloing scenes between them laughing and Drama’s mother, Hester, showing up at Phaedra’s office. This should be good. First Phaedra says she knows it was all just a misunderstanding about the bomb threat. But in the next breath she is pissed off at Mama Joyce and Kandi for Mama Joyce saying that Drama wanted to blow her the fuck up because “it was such a serious situation.” Also she didn’t look like she thought it must be a misunderstanding when she first heard the news. Hester and Phaedra hug it out.
Back with Kandi she says she doesn’t get why Phaedra is making up stories covering for Drama and yet right after it happened she was walking around telling people this guy with her was her bodyguard. Kandi says it’s either one of two things, it was her bodyguard or it was her boyfriend. Don Juan says that was Mr. Chocolate. Kandi says, that was not Chocolate. She knows who Chocolate is and that was not him. Kandi says that Phaedra tells some of them the bomb threat was a misunderstanding and others that she is scared and she hired security.
Kandi and Phaedra go to dinner. Phaedra wants to tell Kandi she is pissed at her over Mama Joyce’s comments. Kandi is over her friendship with Phaedra and she’s just there for the paycheck. Phaedra starts off talking about her crusade to help black men. Or at least all the ones who aren’t in prison. Whatever she did to help them, didn’t seem to take. Kandi is not having any of that bullshit either. Kandi points out that Phaedra said she was not concerned at all and yet she is walking around with a bodyguard. Quick as a rabbit, Phaedra has a lie for that too. She said her parents got her a bodyguard because they were concerned.
Both Phaedra and Kandi confront the other for talking behind each others back. Kandi implies that we haven’t heard a fraction of what she has on Phaedra. Phaedra tries to shift to a victim stance. Phaedra is just a single mother who is the victim of circumstances beyond her control. Kandi is not hearing that either. She says Phaedra was counting down the days with glee until she would be free from Apollo. Kandi says Phaedra was planning to marry one of the guys she was seeing by the new year. Phaedra is pissed. Kandi says around everyone else, Phaedra was having a pity party, but when she was with her she was happy as a clam and on to her next conquest. Phaedra denies the pity party. She says that when she sat there and cried to “fucking Nene” for attention, that’s a pity party. Kandi said she didn’t cry to Nene about her husband.
Phaedra says that maybe she loved Kandi more than her husband. Kandi laughs. In her talking head Kandi says Phaedra had Chocolate melting in her mouth and not in her hands, long before Apollo went off to prison. These two are AFTER each other. Kandi leaves. Phaedra sits there looking at the menu preparing her large to go order she is notorious for making after a restaurant shoot. After all, Bravo is paying.
Next Week: There is more drama about Kandi letting the cat out of the bag about Phaedra’s dating life. I don’t know why the rest of the cast is acting all brand new about that. It was brought up last season. It looks like sides will form. Sadly, Kenya will eventually befriend Phaedra. At least temporarily.
