You guys literally talk about the RHOBH episodes right up until the new one airs lately. Thanks for that, by the way. But I think we are all growing wearing of Atlanta. It’s just gone on too long. But tonight, for some reason, Apollo’s side piece comes to town, Word on the curb, Phaedra caught wind of it and refused to show up to film. Without her only partner in crime, Porsha doesn’t show up either.
Todd picks Peter up at the airport. Todd must actually like Peter to do that. No one wants to take anyone to Hartsfield. The traffic is awful. Apollo calls at the appointed time to make his appearance on the show straight from prison. Apollo says that he is sending his lady to the restaurant to show love and support.
The OLG Restaurant
Kandi, Todd and Carmon are working hard to get the restaurant ready for the friends and family preview party. Kandi and Todd fake argue about the color of the chairs for the outside bar. Todd seems sort of cranky, particularly toward Don Juan who shows up to see what needs to be done with uniforms. That’s another fake fight. Everywhere is white shirt black pants these days. Unless you work at SUR. The day before the party, Kandi and Todd are still arguing about the restaurant set up.
Cynthia lies to Noelle and tells her that her divorce is final. That is not true either. Cynthia and Peter decided not to file until 2017, supposedly for tax purposes? Why do we need this whole elaborate lie from Cynthia? Does she just mean they have come to an agreement and have both signed off? Is there something in the water in Atlanta? We see Peter sitting outside the house they used to live in together saying goodbye. The OLG party will be the first time she and Peter see each other since the divorce.
Sheree hired some landscapers to try to make the front yard look half way decent for her incomplete house prior to the housewarming. These landscapes are still trying to sue her for the money. In fact, they want to get permission to sell the Chateau to pay off all the liens on the place. Seriously, she has so many people she owes they are practically forming a class action law suit at this point.
Kenya pulls up to see what is going on with the yard work. Kenya talks about being done with Matt. And yet, she is going to bring him to Sheree’s party. This scene makes no sense, these two hate each other an the finale next week will be of them going after each other. Sheree says that she in moving in in “a couple days.” Newsflash, she still doesn’t live there.And yet we get a fake scene of Sheree moving out of her apartment. She better take the appliances with her…
You know, it’s one thing for us to sit here and watch Phaedra lie. We have known the entire time she was not divorced from Apollo. But while I have been telling you that for years, recently TMZ caught up with the story. It’s even been in the local paper in their Entertainment blogs. So now most everyone watching knows she is full of shit. She starts off saying “my parents came to town to watch the boys because it’s her birthday.” Lie. Phaedra’s mother practically lives in her house and appears to be the primary care giver. Then she says it is her first birthday as a single mother. I can’t with this. And her whole religious family talking about how she puts the best interest of her boys first. According to Mama Joyces streets and her neighbors she never seems to see the boys. Phaedra’s dad says he wants to take the boys for two weeks in the summer.
Which flashes us back to Apollo’s phone call where he asks if they have seen the boys. They say they never see them. Apollo lets us know that he is on to Phaedra’s tricks to try to get a divorce without any of his input. Apollo says that Phaedra has been playing him for years and that she probably never loved him. I feel another book about Phaedra coming out. I hope he is writing it in jail just like Teresa Giudice wrote hers. Get that shit to a publisher. Peter calls Phaedra a scammer. And if anyone can spot a scammer, it’s another scammer.
Porsha and Phaedra celebrate Phaedra’s birthday alone. I guess Bravo didn’t give Phaedra an event budget. They end up playing with wigs and Porsha gives her a makeover. This looks like a scene thrown together when they decide not to go to the party.
The OLG Restaurant Party
The restaurant is gorgeous. The walls are covered with cute photos of the OLG and Ace. It’s very urban rustic with a flair of sophistication at the bar. The aunts are thrilled. Mama Joyce is really late and arrives all dressed up. She was supposed to wear a white shirt and black pants like her sisters and the other employees. She pretends she didn’t know but her sisters call her out. Peter arrives and is very standoffish with Cynthia.
Kandi sings her song Fly Above a capella and that girl can SANG y’all. She makes a reference to Porsha as being a hater she is rising above. The food is a hit.
Shereen arrives in her Bravo Sherien arrives and walks up to the table by the window where Peter and Todd are seated. Everyone else was moved to the back of the restaurant to film the grand entrance. Check out my real time post about this here, where I talk about the things Bravo paid for. I am not clear why it was necessary to loan her a Chanel bag, but they did.
Shereen says that Kandi and Todd have been super supportive of them while Apollo is “away” so she is “extending his presence her to…congratulate both of you on this lounge.” Kandi says they have been supportive of Apollo. Everyone is extremely confused by the whole situation. In her confessional, Kandi says that she knows that Phaedra is going to accuse Kandi of setting this up, but she had no idea she was coming. Sherien says she has been with Apollo for four years. She says of Phaedra, “wifey wasn’t around so I was there more than she was.” Kandi does not care for that comment. She says Phaedra could have been at the party tonight. Sherien says that Apollo has been away for two years and she has only been to visit twice. (And both of those visits were initiated by production, not Phaedra by the way. Especially the visit with the boys. She didn’t want to do it. Allegedly. According to my sources.)
I love Mama Joyce in the photo above. Todd tried to close the door but Mama Joyce opened it and walked right on in. Sherien is an air head. She gets a call from Apollo (production really timed this well). Kandi says this just feels messy. Kandi tells Apollo that she is not happy that Sherien is there because it puts her in an awkward position. Apollo says he doesn’t care about her relationship with Phaedra, that has nothing to do with him and Sherien. Way to miss the point, dumbass. Apollo says that he is NOT divorced from Phaedra. Cynthia, of all people. points out that Phaedra is lying about her divorce. Kenya wants to know why Phaedra is always lying.
So what did you think of the side chick?
Next week: The drama continues with the idiot trying to sue Kand and Sheree has her housewarming party and Kenya takes the cameras into the moldy basement.
