It is clear that the production from other franchises tend to copy each others storylines. Tonight I’ll be pointing that out frequently as Phaedra has her pop up shop to send the kids in Flint to camp. Because sending water like everyone else would not be original. I am so not up to this tonight, but I am going in anyway.
I can’t with this already. Even Ayden thinks that the best way to help Flint is to send money for water. Major companies have been trucking in bottle water for ages, and to this day the water still has to be filtered and is not safe to drink otherwise. But Phaedra explains that she is going to send some kids in Flint to camp where they can have fun and she is sending soap and T-shirts. Because they might need some soap to lather themselves up with with the lead tainted water. I really can’t tonight, I’m so serious.
Marlo shows up at Sheree’s fake shopping for wall coverings for Chateau Charade. After being best buddies with Kenya the last time she was on, she is now going to be best buddies with Sheree this season. She will be on at least three episodes that I know of. Anything for camera time. One thing I will say positively about Marlo is that she has great taste in clothes and home interiors. Sheree on the other thing thinks grey is the great new thing in home decor. Perhaps she still lives in 2010? Even Jeff Lewis is over the whole gray thing at this point.
Marlo tells Sheree that she is over Kenya after not being invited to her birthday or her housewarming. Sheree has the unmitigated gall to say that Kenya is a cheap bitch when it comes to Moore Manor. Bitch she has top of the line EVERYTHING. And she got most of it for Instagram publicity. That toilet alone could pay off some of Sheree’s back taxes and liens. She has top of the line Wolff kitchen appliances that are valued at around $1ook and sheree still doesn’t have her kitchen appliances in! Nor could she afford to pay for her landscaping (blind item reveal). AND she doesn’t have a certificate of occupancy, a little term she knew nothing about when my lawyer asked her about it in court when she was claiming to be “the builder.” SMH.
I so hate her storyline this season. Kenya returns home from Charlotte to discover that Matt has ONCE AGAIN vandalized her house. This is just so unsettling and I feel like she is having such a difficult time letting this go, she was trying to have IVF and I know she wanted Matt to be the father, and it’s just so sad for me to keep watching this and I have had enough sad for one damn day.
Matt broke out windows in her garage again, this time he broke out the back window of her Range Rover, he spray painted her camera and damaged a back door. Kandi calls her and tells her she needs to stay far away from him. Kandi gives very good advice. She also suggests that she come stay with her for a few days until things calm down. Kandi was very supportive of Kenya this season and even had her over for Thanksgiving. However, Matt was there. Not sure if that was filmed or not it was at the Old Lady Gang Restaurant though so it probably was. Real friends or storyline friends though, Kandi has been very kind to Kenya.
Cynthia has put all of her shit in Pod for storage and still has not gotten the keys to her new place do to a glitch with the purchase. She’s not sure the deal is going to go through. I don’t understand the appraisal situation. If she wants to pay $300K over the appraisal she can. This seems ridiculous. Cynthia says that Kenya has offered to let her and Noelle stay with her while they work things out because her previous house is sold.
It makes zero sense for Kenya to go to Phaedra for legal advice concerning Apollo. These two hate each other. Nothing I am about to see is in the least bit believable. I am not going to comment on this fake shit. Phaedra does say that the bad behavior was not there when she dated Apollo and it showed up during their marriage and only got worse. Phaedra prayed with Kenya.#FixItJesus
Kandi is a really interesting mother to watch. I don’t mean interesting in a bad way. I love that she is practically potty training from birth and that it is successful. I think she’s a potty training pioneer. So I will cut her some slack for the whole baby line related to Ace, because she actually knows what she is doing and has concrete, measurable behaviors to back that up.
Kenya goes over to see Kandi. Seeing her hold Ace is heartbreaking. Kandi is being super kind to her. Kenya has decided not to file a restraining order. I wish she would. It would not stop him, she is right, but it would put him in jail.
Cynthia and Kandi talk about moving into the guest house.
Phaedra’s Pop Up Shop
Look, I am really not able to recap tonight. I do know that there was very little turnout for this event.
