After last week’s dramatic RHOA episode, I am expecting this to be the hangover episode. Literally for some of the RHOA, and metaphorically for the rest of us. In other words, I don’t expect much. To be honest, y’all weren’t all that excited last week and Nene Leakes literally attacked a cameraman and lost her mind. I feel like most of you are checked-out and there is no getting any of you back.
I did post a BIG EXCLUSIVE just before I started this post about the RHOA Reunion and what that might mean for next season that might give you hope for next season. Let’s see what happens next on RHOA!
Let’s Talk About Nene’s Party!
We start right up with all sorts of flashbacks of Nene Leakes losing mind at her own party. It seems like production went back in through this whole season and made sure to drop in shady production flashbacks of Nene Leakes horrible behavior in every episode. This bodes well for us. If you read today’s RHOA Reunion tea, you know what I am talking about. So, as Kandi Burrus, Porsha Williams and Marlo Hampton walk in to their scene outside Hudson Grille, we are reminded just how bad it was last week.
I have a confession. I am liking pregnant Porsha Williams this season. She’s actually growing on me when she is not dragging people across the stage by their hair. And she is really pretty pregnant. Sorry, I feel like a traitor saying that.
Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams Thoughts on Closet Gate
It’s two days later and the ladies have a lot to say about it. Marlo Hampton says it took her two days to recover from it. Kandi and Porsha thought everyone was having a good time and kidding around. They didn’t think Nene Leakes really cared if they went in the closet. Kandi Burruss says that the cameraman going in there is what set Nene off. Porsha says she hasn’t ever felt that much anxiety run through her body. Normally, she can defend herself but she’s pregnant and it scared her.
So Kandi and Porsha went downstairs to get away from Nene. Nene came after them pushing people on the stairs out of the way and yelling at them to move so she could get to them. Apparently, Nene was trying to fight Porsha and Kandi off camera and Kandi was getting in between Nene and Porsha. Marlo says she doesn’t remember any of that.
Porsha Is Not The One To Preach About Accountability!
After Marlo’s comment, Porsha says what she doesn’t remember is Nene taking any accountability for what she did. Porsha, gurl, I said I was starting to like you a little bit. But you are not the one to suggest someone else take accountability for their violent temper. You never have taken accountability for your attacks on Kenya Moore, or your attack on Cynthia Bailey, or your attack on that makeup girl that hangs around your man. And that is just the top three. Girl, have a seat.
What’s this tea about Porsha taking her belt off. Was she gonna whip Nene Leakes with it? See now, she doesn’t want to talk about that. Porsha is mad that Kandi sent Nene a text and apologized for contributing to her pain. Porsha is not there yet. We get more input from production reminding us of Nene’s high and mighty attitude about Porsha’s violent behavior. Porsha got demoted and sent to anger management over her behavior. It would not surprise me if Nene was gone next season. Marlo says Nene doesn’t feel like she was wrong. Marlo is riding for Nene this entire conversation.
Eva Marcille and Tanya Sam’s Thoughts on Closet Gate
Over at Eva Marcille’s place, she is busy cleaning up around her house, something I was supposed to be doing today and didn’t quite get to. Yet. This is hopefully my last post for the day. I still have time, right?
Shamari Devoe drops by to discuss everything that happened as Casa Leakes. But before they can talk about Nene Leakes, Shamari has her own bad behavior to deal with. She apologizes to Eva for throwing up on her dress and her shoes. I hope she is hiding some new shoes for her someone in those black workout clothes! Tanya Sam arrives and she is still in her natural hair. Tanya tells Shamari that they are soul sisters now because she cleaned up her puke.After fast forwarding I land on the girls telling Shamari she was sexually assaulting all of them.
Then it is on to Nene Leakes violent behavior. They think Nene gave the ladies enough fair warning to where they should not have gone in the closet. Eva says, “You can’t poke a bear and not expect it to strike back!” Eva says that Marlo sticks with Nene no matter what.
Cynthia Bailey and Eva Marcille Go For A Colonic
I’ll pass on this. If we can’t find anything else to do with Cynthia Bailey, I’m ready to let her go.
Later, we see Eva Marcille trying on all of her wedding dresses. Her dresses are very beautiful. Even her mama had no complaints.
Ronnie Devoe Talks With Shamari About Her Drinking
Ronnie is about to leave Atlanta again to tour with his band. But not before he talks with Shamari about getting all sexual with the girls at Nene Leakes party. He says too many drinks lead to her doing things that are inappropriate with the ladies. And that can lead to separation.
Shamari promised to be good. I am way behind with this recap. But, I need y’all to look up there at Shamari’s new talking head look. She looks amazing! She looks like a RHOA! Why doesn’t she do that look more often? Shamari has been a disappointment to RHOA fans and the Bravo suits this season. I hope she gets to stay!
Kandi’s Dungeon Party
I’m not going to have much to say about this for many reasons. But it looks like a really fun time. And am going to glue my eyes to the TV for most of it!
Kandi does the first performance. Then she and Shamari have a duet. Except Shamari has lost her voice so she is going to lipsync. This probably will not end well for Shamari. Actually, she did great!
Next is Cynthia’s unscripted scene with Cynthia. Kandi starts right off kneeling in front of her and asking her how wet she is. Marlo of all people is clutching her pearls. Oh, please Marlo. Then backstage Marlo claims that Kandi wouldn’t let Marlo be in the show because she was “too extra.” Oh, that is her issue. She wasn’t invited to play. Poor, Marlo missed all the fun. She sure did have a latex catsuit to wear from her other job’s wardrobe though.
Kandi has a ton of costume changes. I imagine those all came from her special closet at home. Tanya Sam is loving the dungeon party. She playfully pushed Marlo on the ground and lived to tell about it. No wonder the Bravo suits love her so much! Marlo does tell Tanya and Shamari they both need to go to AA. She tells Shamari she really does have a drinking problem. Marlo wonders what her real problem is. Cynthia Bailey says that being around Marlo makes everyone want to drink. Wow. That is a lot from Cynthia.
It’s time for the wedding. Is that the finale or will there be two episodes? Nene Leakes comes back from Miami for the wedding. She took off to Miami right after the party while Gregg was in the hospital. Then at the wedding she says that Gregg was talking about a separation. We all know this is her idea. But Gregg will lie for her and say it was his.
