Tonight’s RHOA recap snuck up on me. Tonight Nene returns and gets to draw a check for the episode. If you missed my recent post about Nene’s pay this season, check it out. I made a correction to something I told you before. Also, we all hated the cookie lady on last week’s episode. And I mentioned in another post that she was getting trolled hard on social media and the ratings of her cookie shop were taking a hard hit. Well, today the trolls were passing around her mug shot. Apparently, she was arrested two or three years ago for fraud and credit card theft. I feel like she is probably regretting signing that Bravo release right about now. I doubt she was even paid and if she was it was very, very little. People should not be so quick to sign their lives and reputations away. I’m just saying.
It’s no wonder Nene Leakes can’t book acting work. This sob story about Cynthia that kicks off the show is ridiculously bad acting. I can’t stop laughing at the people who take fashion advice from the woman who wears nothing but men’s t-shirts tied in a knot to show off her muffin top. We have a pointless conversation with Nene and Marlo in a car so that Nene can say “she” is doing a jungle brunch.
Cynthia sent a … um wait… OMG Nene has a new talking head look and they did not give it to us for photos this week. She’s trying to look all virginal in a white lace dress and a too blond wig. Also, I have been worried about Gregg for weeks. Someone needs to check on him. He hasn’t posted on his IG since his last date ever with Nene on NYE except for one post on the second with some couple. I feel like I should know who they are but y’all know how I am with faces. Somebody go look and tell me who that is in comments.
Sea Bass & Brooklyn Sass!
Then we get a super cute short bit with Kenya cooking sea bass and Brooklyn giving her advice. Apparently, Brooklyn does not want hers pan fried. 🙂 Cynthia shows up to visit Kenya but she is still a bit sour about Kenya trying to blame last week’s cookie lady mess on her. All of this over a comment about a wig that Tanya made to the girls? Please.
Cynthia wants to say a prayer of her meal. So goes off on a hysterically long tangent about Kenya throwing her under the bus. She can be funny, this one. Kenya mentions that Marc left early so she has sea bass for her. Guess she and Marc were fussing again. Brooklyn is stealing these scenes. Cynthia tries to sell Mike’s book. They talk about cheaters.
OMG! It’s Gregg sighting! I think this is the first one of the season.
The Wine Cellar Summit
Nene knows that Cynthia has an A Storyl this season for the first time every and Nene does not. So she is going to have to do some sucking up here. She tries but the both think the other was badmouthing them. Nene is still badmouthing Cynthia in real time. She is pissy and is still not admitting to what she did. Nene still is in the streets saying that Cynthia has another side to her. Wait! I thought Cynthia was weak. Nene blames everything on Cynthia. She did not expect Cynthia to stick up for herself. Nene tells her to have her moment (that was a dig at her A Story this season) and she leaves.
Nene waits in the parking lot for Cynthia to chase after her. And she does. Then Nene does her little put on act. Cynthia apologizes. I can’t with this bullshit. Cynthia is backpedaling. My recording keeps cutting in and out. Anyway, they make up for now. It doesn’t last long. Because, Nene.
We Interrupt This Jungle Brunch To Have a Baby!
Y’all my TV crapped out toward the end of the meeting with Cynthia and Nene and didn’t come back on until production was standing outside the bathroom in the brunch venue, ironically called No Mas!, with a very uncomfortable looking Eva. What did I miss in between? Cynthia arrives and checks on Eva. Then Kandi arrives and the two take her to a table. Eva is having contractions. Kandi calls Dr. Jackie and she says to go straight to the hospital. Eva doesn’t want to go. Dr. Jackie offers to help Kandi deliver the baby over the phone. LOL.
Outside, Tanya and Kandi help Eva take off her hot animal print top. Cynthia goes to get the car to take her to Northside. So the brunch is down two guests already. Eva knows it is too soon to be having the baby and she is really worried the whole way to the hospital.
Later she calls Kandi who has been stuck waiting on Nene to arrive to film all afternoon. Eva says they checked her in and she is one and a half centimeters dilated and Mike is there with her. I wonder if she got her dates wrong because she looks big enough to have a full term baby to me.
Meanwhile Back At The Brunch…
The hostess, Nene Leakes has not arrived and it is only Kandi and Tanya at the table. Kenya shows up “one hour late” to the brunch. This is also known as exactly when production told her to walk in. So it is just Kenya and Tanya and Kandi. Of course this is the scripted scene they wanted for a tense moment at the least and a huge fight if they are lucky between Tanya and Kenya. Kenya is there to get an apology from Nene. She leaves because Nene is over an hour late to lunch and she has other things to do. In other words, she is not going to give production the scene they want.
Nene walks in an hour and a half later, two and a half hours for her own brunch. Nene brought a group of randoms with her. Did she meet them in the parking lot? Kandi suspects the same thing. There are only two people in the group we know. Nene seems highly pissed that Kenya didn’t wait another hour and a half for her. Really? Then Marlo shows up. She says that Porsha didn’t want to come. But Porsha is literally walking in the door with Shamea as Nene is trashing her.
Porsha also wants to know who the randoms are at the table. Nene supposedly charges these random women for brunches with her to talk about being bidness womens. Nene is furious that three of the women didn’t show up. Actually they all showed up. But, Nene wanted them to talk to the randoms about friendships and sisterhood. Nene actually gets people to pay her for this? What does she know about friendships and sisterhood? She can’t even stop ranting at Porsha soe Kandi can hear her phone call from Eva. Porsha has no interest in having any kind of meaningful conversation with Nene in front of this group of randoms. Something tells me that is exactly why Nene rounded them up.
As Kandi says, “This is the fakest sisterhood I have ever seen in my life.” I agree.
Next time: Marc shows up and starts some mess by inviting Nene (and Gregg) to his charity event. Cynthia and Mike argue. I’m off to recap Shahs, which looks really good tonight by the way, God willing and the creek don’t rise (and the cable starts cooperating. Spectrum SUCKS).
