Tonight we get to watch Sheree Whitfield botch yet another even at the Chateau. At least she has finally done enough staging to allow for filming there and doesn’t have to film her scenes in Kandi’s guest house this week. I’ve had some sort of sinus infection for over a week now. My days and nights are almost completely backward and the days are cold and dreary. So it is with great reluctance that begin this recap.
Since Porsha has no friends left in her life, she has to film with her sister and mother. Seriously, why does this fool have a peach?
Cynthia met her fake boyfriend for the season, Will. Will will be a recurring character. As recurring fake boyfriends go, I like this one.
This is the episode where Gregg’s medical situation begins. Brentt apparently has decided to be a comedian and go into acting. Brentt is the kid who can’t ever seem to open his mouth and speak coherently on camera, in case you don’t know who he is. I love that Gregg asked Nene what she thinks Brentt is going to do with his life, as if Brentt is just some kid that has been living in their house. These reality kids have a rough life ahead. Even, Sheree made sure her kids went to college. I mean it was probably Bob’s idea but it happened. Gregg eventually goes to the hospital to have his heart checked and they keep him overnight for observation.
Over at Kandi Koated Entertainment, Kandi and Todd have become way more careful about who they hire and who the trust since Phaedra convinced one of their employees to file a friviolous lawsuit that has already cost the company $60K in legal fees. Kandi is also helping fund Carmon’s new business as an insurance agent. Kandi thinks Kenya is being ridiculous by not saying Marc’s name. Kandi, Carmon and Don Juan all laugh about Porsha’s inability to ride in coach to Kenya. I couldn’t do it. I am too fat to take overseas flights in coach these days. I keep getting bigger and the leg room and seat size keeps getting smaller. Something needs to be done about that.
Kenya tries to appease production by leaving a message on Marc’s voicemail about her day. Apparently, King peed on her wedding dress. That’s the big news. She also explains that they are spending every weekend together and that he is her best friend. Her voice mails keep getting cut off. She needs Brandon there to film with this season. This is ridiculous.
Sheree is doing a tasting for shrimp and grits, they try to make it look like it is at her house, but I don’t think it is. The backgrounds are all very blurry. I do want some of that shrimp and grits though. Also whose dog was that?
Porsha has a ridiculous idea. She wants to have a salon. She has no business plan. She has no clue what she is doing. This is a fake storyline. She keeps calling herself a businesswoman. Her sister points out that Porsha doesn’t do any work at her business. Porsha doesn’t appreciate her pointing out that she takes 85% of the profits from her side jobs that the sister does. They have a huge fight and act like they are going to break off their business relationship.
Four hours before Sheree’s disco party for her mother’s seventieth birthday, everything is going all wrong and the party planner is not there.
Before the party Cynthia stops by Kenya’s house, because it has air conditioning and the other basics. Kenya looks amazing in her afro puffs and they chat about men and sex and dating and marriage while Kenya gets the final touches of her makeup. Then Nene shows up to Kenya’s to hang with Cynthia and Kenya. She mentions that Gregg is still not feeling well.
With only an hour and a half to go before the event, the party planner basically says that Sheree is too big of a bitch to work with, so she refused to show up. Sheree has a huge meltdown, left the party planner a nasty voice mail, frightened the hired help, and yanked off her microphone. You know things are getting good when someone yanks off their microphone and storms away from the cameras and slams the door.
Then it starts to pour rain. That is actually good news though. It’s July and the Chateau has no A/C. Allegedly. So what does girl do with only 90 minutes to put together a party? Hair and makeup of course. We get to see the fabulous party. There is a disco ball hanging off some sort of a pole. A table with a cake and crepe paper. And miles and miles of empty walls. There is a large fake ficus type tree that keeps getting moved around. and a room with some sort of seating ensemble.
Kenya KILLED IT on the Soul Train line. She’s the only girl in there that can dance. And she dropped into a split old school style! You go gurl!
The only thing they could really show was the dance floor though so the whole party scene was all of two minutes.
Next we see Nene flying down the highway with a cell phone in one hand and playing with her wig with the other. What is wrong with these people who drive with no hands on the wheel? It’s making me very anxious and I’m watching from the safety of my TV! She is talking to Gregg and he needs to have an angiogram to check for heart blockage. She thought it was a noon but they have changed it to 11:20. Um, so why is she in the car still? Why didn’t she spend the night up there or get up at 7 to be up there with him all morning? Gregg sounds really nervous.
Next Week: Kandi shoots the cover of essence. Porsha treats her sister like crap again. Marlo slithers back in for a scene with Nene that was probably way out of sequence. Then Nene has her white party where the roach incident occurred.
