Sadly, tonight’s RHOA recap will cover the end of Kenya and Marc’s marriage. We saw it all break down on the last episode in real time. Marc was truly and utterly done. He made the announcement the next day publicly without giving Kenya the heads up. Kenya desperately wants to keep the marriage together. And, they have seemed to be getting along here lately. They have talked about counseling. As someone said in the previews, all we can do is pray. Though I am not sure being with Marc is the best thing for Kenya.
Nene Leakes Just Loves To Be Awful
The moment the news hits the Internet, Nene is already pushing her agenda that Kenya and Marc are not legally married. Nene has been feeding that rumor to the blogs since right after they got married. Nene may say her name is Bennett, but she is most definitely in it. Right there stirring the shit at every opportunity.
Real friends, Cynthia and Kandi show up to talk to check on Kenya. Though they are in full makeup and hair. When Kandi came to check on Kenya after Matt vandalized her house, she came running with no makeup on. So they had advance warning for this scene. Cynthia didn’t wake up like that. Though, to be fair they could have been planing to film something else today like packing for the trip.
Marc Daily Is An Asshole
Kandi witnessed their last big fight in the car after the charity event. Kandi said it got “real bad” and Kandi has her own experiences and knows what real bad means. After the charity event, Kandi told Kenya at that time if she put out a statement then, than everyone would be talking (shit) about it. Cynthia and Kandi both agree that the things they knew about before this were so bad that they would have already left Marc well before the charity event.
They find Kenya crying in her bedroom with Brooklyn asleep in her crib. Kenya says that she went to bed after the event and her publicist woke her up the next morning asking what was going on with the divorce statement. Kenya didn’t know that Marc was going to make a statement. She says he forced her hand by doing that. It seems she did not want to make a statement. Kenya said everything he did the night before was hurtful and she didn’t know what was going on.
Marc Daly Was Put Out Of The Uber
She says he was awful in the Uber and said that she didn’t even want her to come to the event. She says he cannot stop coming for her once he is angry. This was the angriest she had ever seen him in such close quarters. Kenya says things got really out of hand and the Uber driver pulled over and asked him to get out of the car. She told Marc not to come back to the house. She claims he did not hit her. But you can tell she was afraid of him in the Uber.
Kenya tells the girls that she saw texts where another woman was begging him to keep having sex with her despite him getting married. At that time she told Marc that maintaining contact with her was inappropriate but they continued to text. Kenya says she also called the bitch. Good for you Kenya, I would have done the same damn thing. Kenya’s crying breaks my cold, dark, heart.
Off To Greece!
I hate how these girls dress for the airplane. Cynthia is the only one who understands that you can be comfortable and still look like you belong in first class. Marlo of course goes right in asking Cynthia, Kandi and Porsha if Kenya is really getting a divorce. Kandi is great about giving as little information as possible to the enemy. Kenya said she didn’t want to come on the trip because the other girls hate her and will taunt her. Marlo and Nene will for sure. I don’t think the rest will. I think even Tanya will be kind to her.
Yep! Nene arrives in her pajamas for the flight. And she starts right in trashing Kenya. I don’t care how much you paid for those pajamas, you do not wear them in an airport. Especially if you are changing flights in Amsterdam. We know Kenya and Brooklyn go to Athens, but clearly she changed her flight to get away from Nene and Marlo. She is one smart cookie.
Who Knew There Was So Much Pussy In Greece?
What actual airline did they take to get a direct 11 hour flight? I guess it doesn’t matter. It wasn’t Delta and that is all I can fly unless I want to sit in cattle class. And this heifer is to big to fly cattle class. Kenya shows up to ride to the hotel in the van. Marlo tells us, “How are we not going to ask about the divorce? If it were anyone else, Kenya would ask.
They are staying at White Key Villas. Looks lovely but removed from the hustle and bustle. I guess that is good for the rest of the folks in Athens. But, it would not be my choice. After seeing the rooms, it totally would not be my room I enjoy my hotel rooms when I travel. Sometimes I stay in all day and watch TV and enjoy the view from my balcony with a glass of wine.
Who Can Shove The Nasty Down Their Throats Fastest?
Since Kandi and Kenya have somehow been deemed co planners by production, Kenya get to make the girls gag for their rooms literally. The nasty raw fish eating contest (don’t you weird types call that sushi? What’s the problem?) is very close between Marlo and Tanya. They are both very good at putting gross stuff in their mouths. Marlo seemed to win. But Kenya calls it for Tanya. Then, in a twist in the game, Porsha gets to take Tanya’s room.
Cynthia seems hellbent on getting Nene and Kenya to talk together. There is no way in hell that Kenya wants to deal with Nene’s ignorant ass. WTF, Cynthia? Sometimes you can say no to production.
Beware Of Greeks Bearing Gifts
Dinner looks delicious and Kandi, who usually just waits to each until they pass an American fast food place, gives it high praise. Then, she mentions it’s not good for her diet. She finally mentions that she has a role in The Chi and she has nude scenes. As it turns out she isn’t able to do that part partly because of this Greece trip and other RHOA filming obligations. So she had to decline. The good news is, the offered her another part that fit her schedule because they wanted her so badly. YAY! Oh, I didn’t think that was going to be explained on the show. But they did.
Marlo was very complimentary of Kenya’s peach dress when she arrived to dinner. Everyone seems to be getting along great. Marlo gives a lovely toast to Kandi and Kenya for “hosting” the event. Then Nene tells Kenya that she and some of the others have been through a divorce. She genuinely wants to know if Kenya is okay. Damn if I don’t actually believe Nene is being sincere. Marlo seconds Nene’s concern.
Kenya cries and thanks everyone individually who reached out to her. The only one she didn’t mention is Nene who clearly did not reach out. Kenya cries and Marlo gets up to stand behind her and comfort her. Okay, Marlo. Now you are doing too much. She has two friends there. Tanya tells us in confessional that now she gets why Kenya did what she did to her. Kenya doesn’t think either one of them want a divorce, but right now she doesn’t see a way out. Kenya says she doesn’t want to bring the trip down. She just wants them all to have a hot girl summer.
Cynthia tries to force Nene and Kenya to speak. Kenya says she has to go check on Brooklyn even though production already showed us that the nanny and Brooklyn were down for the night the last time she called. Nene talks all matter of Trash about Kenya in her talking head including repeating “Fuck Kenya!” several times. I do think Kenya missed an opportunity to lull Nene into a few days of human decency by not speaking to her. I do think Nene was a bit genuine. But I get it.
Kandi and Tanya convince Kenya to at least be kind to Nene before going to her room. So she decides to take her some baklava on a desert plate. Nene storms off and Kandi tries to explain that Kenya was making a nice gesture but Nene is already heated. Nene’s door is closed.
Next week: Kenya’s jokes about wine are aimed at Cynthia and come across as digs about Bailey Wine Cellar. Oh Kenya. Girl. You already lost your man. Don’t lose Cynthia too!
