This was blowing up Twitter last night, and I for some reason have been putting of recapping it. I hate when they have so many guests on at once. The big news is these people still don’t get a long and everyone with tickets to the show is worried their shows will be cancelled. I doubt that will happen. The other prevailing thought was Andy was somehow pressing their buttons to get them to go at each other.
Let me take a look at and give the broad strokes. Andy begins with Mama Joyce and her assessment of everyone’s asses. During the clip, it looks like Tiny is already drying her eyes. Clearly, these women fought before the show even started.
There is clearly still tension between Kandi and LaTocha. There is still tension between Kandi and Tamika. Tamika admits that she lied about Kandi hooking up with Jermaine’s dad.
Kandi shares thoughts on RHOA. She says that Nene and Porsha have not been friends for the past two years. She says that is why Nene was fine with saying that Porsha needed to be fired. I think anyone with a brain knows that Porsha needs to be fired. Kandi says she was shocked that Kenya eloped, but she understood that she wanted to keep her marriage away from everyone’s negativity. Kandi has met Marc and says that he is really cool. Kandi says she understands why Shamea is mad at Porsha. Porsha and Phaedra said some mean things about Shamea behind her back on the show. Kandi, who is answering all of these questions politely, says Kim coming back was an “interesting situation.” She says there was a moment where they had to have a sit down and she thought it was going to go super left, but they got it on track.
Andy asks them if they are doing new music. Kandi says the three of them are going to do new music. Tamika tells Kandi to “tell the truth!” Kandi says she’s going to do Broadway and work on other projects. Everyone seems uncomfortable with the question. When asked if they will be calling themselves Xscape, I believe it was Tiny who said, “We are Xscape” and Kandi acted as if she didn’t know what name they would be using.
Again, Andy never mentions that Nene was dropped from the tour. Oh wait, just when I thought they were moving on, Andy does ask about Kandi and Nene. Kandi says that she and Nene are getting along great. She says that people are trying to make it seem like they have beef but that is not true. I believe that. Nene is allied with Kandi this season regardless of the fact she was dropped from the tour over the rape incident.
When someone asks if the group would have reunited earlier if Tamika would have apologized earlier, Kandi says yes. But Tamika says she had apologized earlier several times. Kandi wanted a public apology where she admits she lied about Kandi. I can understand that.
They talk about Tamika’s pregnancy. She says that the group was all mad at her for getting pregnant when they were on the brink of huge success. They tried to kick Tamika out of the group. The they in that sentence seems to refer to Tiny and Kandi. Tamika says she still out danced and did everyone. Tiny takes exception to that self assessment. Kandi says in the 90s if a member of a girl group got pregnant they were looked down on.
Andy passes out four flashlights and turns the lights off. He asks questions and they have to shine their light on who it best describes. Who hooked up with the most groupies? They are not very good at shining their lights. LaTocha shines it on Kandi and Kandi is pissed off right off the bat. Worst dancer? Kandi. Who is the richest? Tiny. Best singer? Tamika. Who would get mad if they didn’t have enough vocals? Kandi. That pissed Kandi off.
The tour is 29 dates at large arenas and is selling out. LaTocha wants an Xscape to have a Vegas residency.
Andy asks about Tiny’s “breakup” and she says everything is just going along. Kandi is giving Tiny the stank face. She says Tiny and T.I. are not broken up. Tiny sort of backtracks a little. She seems pissed that Kandi blew her story.
Andy asks if they are all on the same page moving forward. Kandi says they are all on the same page about the tour and making the fans happy.
Well that was awkward.
The most interesting thing was the Mazel of the Day. Apparently, Diana Ross lost her fanny pack in a Marshalls and someone returned it to her.
Thoughts? Did you catch the non-Kandis trying to say they don’t watch RHOA? Gurl, please.
