Last week, I could not be bothered to recap the episode and it seems I was not alone in my disinterest. The ratings dropped to a new low with only 1,65 million viewers. The show has only had over two million viewers for one episode. I feel like this show needs to be taken out behind the barn and put out of its misery; however, Bravo suits continue to call this season a success. They seem to be looking on the bright side. This episode is going to be filled with tears and I’m really not up for that. The weather in Atlanta has been brutal this winter. It’s been cold and rainy more days than not and is expected to rain for the foreseeable future. All I want to do is sleep and feel sorry for myself and drink. These are not really the best choices. Let’s see what these ladies get up to tonight.
Porsha has gas. Do we really need to know this? I will answer that. No. No.we.do.not.
Cynthia is throwing a going away party for Noelle who is going off to Howard University. She’s having cold feet and Cynthia isn’t really ready for the empty nest. These two are very codependant. Cynthia’s mom says she was depressed for an entire year after she left. Noelle has a full on breakdown saying that she can’t do, she can’t go. Poor thing. Noelle wants everyone to leave the party. So Cynthia throws her family out with some doggie bags.
Kandi and Ace go to see Mama Joyce. Mama Joyce is living in style in the nice big house Kandi bought her. She’s also been on back to back vacations so Kandi is stopping by to check in with her mama. She’s a bit pissed that her mother did not come to see her get her lifetime achievement award. Todd is upset with Mama Joyce for calling him a lemon on TV. Kandi is trying to get their relationship mended.
Shamari and her mother spend time with the twins and talk trash about Marlo. Marlo called Shamari’s mama a bitch last week. We learn that Shamari’s mom is a physician’s assistant. She missed a lot of time with Sharmari going to school and working.
Eva is going wedding dress shopping again. This time without her negative mother. This time Nene is coming and bring negative Marlo. Sigh. Eva wants a simple vintage look and Nene is trying to force her to bling it out. Why does everyone want to pick the wedding dress for the bride. It’asall about what she wants! Marlo tells her she needs to lose ten pounds. What is wrong with people?
Dennis and Porsha go to get their first sonogram. Am I the only one thinking this should have been Kenya? This is just not that exciting. Dennis learns what a condom is on this visit. Porsha is going to need a C-section due to her fibroid issues. Everything went well and they both seem very excited to be parents.
Cynthia takes Noelle to Howard to set up dorm room. Her roommate backed out so she has the room to herself and Cynthia is there to make it beautiful. Leon is also there. The three of them go out to dinner. After dinner, they call an Uber for Noelle and after a few tears she’s on her own. The flashbacks of Noelle growing up are touching.
All of Gregg’s kids coming over to the house to talk about Gregg’s diagnosis. Gregg’s two oldest sons are in their 40s and they are getting urges to get a colonoscopy. Gregg seems to be announcing that God has cured him. This is not true at all. He still has cancer and is refusing chemo.
Kandi and Mama Joyce go to the newest OLG restaurant where Todd is working. Kandi is hoping that these too will reconcile. Mama Joyce is not good at apologizing. However, they do end on a positive note.
Next week is Todd’s birthday party. Porsha goes HAM at the party and gets kicked out. Mike Hill comes to Lake Bailey for some TV time. Things between Kandi and Porsha blow up again.
What did y’all think of this episode? I liked seeing more Cynthia and Kandi than Porsha for a change.
