Good evening everyone! I’m taking a football and baseball watching break (Go Pats and Red Sox!!) to recap our finest Atlanta physicians and their husbands for all of you lovies. We open with Heavenly bothering her daughter while she’s doing homework. That is akin to waking a sleeping baby-you just don’t do it! Anywho, she catches “Daddy” (ewe) up on what happened at the Leather and Lace party including Mariah threatening to “bring the receipts” on Damon’s alleged cheating. Heavenly doesn’t believe it and Damon is hurt by the accusations.
Then we move on to Contessa’s kitchen and yup, it’s the scene I’ve been dreading, she has to do the Heimlich on her daughter. Sweet little Laila is eating full sushi pieces and running after her siblings and then it happens-she CHOKES. Super-Contessa saves her life and continues on like it’s just another day. This is my absolute worst nightmare as a mom and if I didn’t have a girl crush on Contessa before, I want to wife her up after this! She’s my hero. Contessa tells Scott that she’s worried about her dad’s health and she wants him to come stay with them so she can take care of him. She recounts her childhood and her dad was an absentee father but she believes it’s because he was an addict and truly sick. She is so strong and compassionate. And amazing. Sigh.
Quad is with her “true” friends from her show “Sister Circle”. They’ve gotten close from working together every day and Quad admits to feeling judged by her fake friends, her castmates from M2M. She feels they turned on her at the reunion and doesn’t think they’ve reached out since they got back. Quad is struggling with divorcing Dr. G but she believes that he did cheat on her.
Toya is planning a birthday party, but instead of celebrating herself she wants to celebrate Eugene’s promotion. It’s a surprise medical wear themed party so think naughty nurse, scrubs and white coats.
Simone goes to the south house to visit Cecil and brings a huge picture of herself to put in his bedroom. It’s supposed to be a “boudoir” shoot but to me it’s just a nice picture, not that sexy. Cecil would have rather had Simone come over in sexy lingerie herself than bring a picture. They are just not in the same page. Cecil wants the sex back in the relationship and Simone isn’t feeling that he’s emotionally available. They argue more and Cecil resigns himself to having a sleepover with no sex.
Jackie is seeing Eva from Real Housewives of Atlanta-cool crossover alert! Eva is uncomfortable and very pregnant. Jackie suggests sex to ease the discomfort and progress the baby. Eva isn’t having it and who can blame her? She contracts while in the office.
Heavenly sees her therapist and we get a montage of all Heavenly’s finest anger moments. She’s a mess. She brings up Mariah who threw out the affair allegations. Heavenly feels she’s just being honest when she berates people but the doctor put it’ simply: honesty without compassion is brutality. That seems to sink in to her and oooooh her therapist brings the receipts!! He googled her and has an angry picture of Heavenly and a beautiful picture of her family. He asks why the difference in the pics? It puts it into perspective that Heavenly has a great life so why does she have to be so hateful? She claims to be willing to work on it, we shall see.
TIme for Toya’s party and Simone and Heavenly arrive early at the venue to help. Toya’s at home wearing a sexy nurse costume and tells Eugene that Quad probably isn’t coming. Scott arrives without Contessa who won’t be there (booh!). Simone is looking hot in a sexy nurse outfit and Cecil is turned on! Mariah arrives and says she was going to come in a white coat and greasy weave but she didn’t want to start fights. The shade is REAL! Heavenly is feeling tested but since she had one anger management session she’s equipped to deal with Mariah. Toya and Eugene arrive and he had zero idea the party was for him.
Toya is upset that Contessa didn’t call her to tell her that she won’t be at the party. Heavenly wants to talk to Mariah and Mariah says she doesn’t talk to dentists. They get a laugh but they are still not okay. Cecil and the guys discuss his marriage and they are supportive of him. Dr. G comes up and they understand why he isn’t there but they wish he would come out with just the guys. Curtis relates to what he’s going through all too well.
The ladies talk about Quad.
Toya tells them that she did invite her but Quad had another engagement. Jackie can understand why Quad has withdrawn but Toya isn’t so understanding. Damon talks to a woman and Heavenly beelines over to interrupt it. Wow, Mariah got under her skin for sure!! Toya takes the mic to thank everyone for coming but decides to call out Contessa for not coming. Scott defends her in her absence and put Toya right in her place. Heavenly gets Contessa on the phone and honestly, this is just nonsense. Toya is being child like and ridiculous. Everyone is visibly uncomfortable and Eugene is not happy with her either.
Next time: The girls have a crab boil Quad shows up to the party. Can’t wait for next week when Contessa confronts Toya and Quad makes an appearance and she and Mariah may come to blows. See you then!!!
