On tonight’s RHOA Recap, Drew Sidora finally makes her debut. It will be interesting to see how she is received. Laytoya Ali also joins the ladies tonight and they all get together for a “wine tasting.” Oddly, I too will be “wine-tasting” this evening. For some reason this is a supersized episode. Sigh.
We are going to meet Laytoya first. Kenya has invited Cynthia and Latoya over to her house for wine. Cynthia already seems to have some jealousy issues about Kenya’s friendship with Latoya. For some reason we get a package of Kenya’s bad treatment of others. Kenya seems very enamored with Latoya. She says she is stealing her from Kandi. Latoya is “in the process of divorcing her husband.” We shall see about that. No one has filed yet and some suspect this is just for storyline. Kenya still hasn’t decided what to do about Marc. Apparently he is “angry” AGAIN. I’ve never seen Kenya so welcoming to anyone.
Porsha Gets Sprung From Jail
The last time we saw our girl Posha, she’d been locked up in the pokey! Porsha’s baby girl is missing her mama. That little girl is so cute and headstrong. Porsha is out of jail and getting ready to take a flight back to the ATL. Lauren and her mama cry tears of relief that she is safe and coming home the minute they hang up.
Porsha finally gets back home and wants her mama to cook breakfast for her. PJ throws a huge temper tantrum. At this point Porsha is still engaged but their relationship is really rocky. The end is near.
Getting To Know Drew Sidora
Drew Sidora and Cynthia go out to dinner. Drew is not used to the Atlanta heat. I forgot that Drew is Eva’s friend. Drew really messed up her ankle while working on a play with Leon, Noelle’s dad. She ruptured her achilles. That caused her weeks of being laid up and almost made her lose her peach. She is still in a boot in this scene. This is basically a quick getting to know Drew scene. Drew’s husband Ralph has been nursing her back to health after her injury.
Then, we flashback eight hours to Drew’s house. Ralph and Drew are celebrating their six year anniversary. They married after six month of knowing each other. Her mom is there and wearing a mask in the house for her protection. She got stuck there after coming to see Drew after her injury due to Covid. She’s feisty and opinionated. She’s a pastor.
Riley Graduates From High School
It looks like most of the scenes this week are going to be of everyone doing their own thing, due to COVID. I am surprised that Riley’s high school even held a graduation ceremony. Most schools here did not. Mama Joyce and Kandi are the only two people who can attend. So Todd didn’t make the cut. Kandi tells us about her graduation. She was booked for a show with Xscape. She flew home really fast and caught a plane back. It’s a socially distanced outdoor graduation. Riley looks really cute.
Kandi was happy she got a good seat. After graduation the family gathers at Kandi’s house. Kandi and Mama Joyce are emotional. Todd gives Riley a big stack of cash.
Cynthia Holds A Wine Party
Latoya and Kenya ride together. Latoya insists that Lake Bailey is a river because “with lakes you can’t see the other side.” This one is not a rocket scientist. Mike Hill is there and Cynthia has an assistant gettig the food together. Mike immediately goes into hiding. The food looks good. Latoya has a mouth on her. I don’t think I got a single filming update from my source that didn’t mention Latoya doing the most. Marlo arrives and it seems that Kenya and Marlo aren’t close anymore. There is friction there. Marlo tells Latoya about her sugar daddy. Latoya says she was a stripper. Kenya and Latoya are doing the most together. It’s weird.
Drew arrives with her husband Ralph who is friends with Mike. Cynthia is thrilled that Mike is making some new friends in the ATL. Kenya hasn’t even met Drew yet and she already has a problem with her. What is that about? In her talking head she wonders where “Cynthia gets all these strays from.” WTF? Girl you have met her just last season with Eva. Everyone thinks Ralph is hot. Because he is. He sort of upstaged Cynthia at her wedding. Sources tell me everyone, was gawking at Ralph. Latoya and Kenya are really meangirling Drew. Latoya whispers to Kenya that Drew “has a pet on her head.” These two are being ridiculous.
I Already Despise Latoya Ali
This bitch is awful. She stands up and announces to Drew that she doesn’t like her. She just met her! Apparently she did an acting role where she played herself as somebody’s side chick and broke up a relationship. Drew just laughs it off and says she gets that all the time. Marlo pulls Latoya to the side to warn her about getting too close to Kenya. These women basically all hate each other. When they move to sit outside by the lake, Kenya states the obvious that this would be a good place for the wedding. That’s a sensitive subject for Cynthia because she and Mike have been arguing about having such a huge wedding. Laytoya asks for an invitation and Cynthia points out she just met her.
Mike and Ralph’s conversation is way more interesting than the women’s bickering. Ralph says that he has had to leave the house for a few days to get away from Drew’s mother. I can see that, she’s bossy and it is his house. Kenya is trying to slow down on the wine because she is driving but Latoya wants to get her lit and take a car service. Kenya has never been drunk on this shoe ever. So that will likely not happen. Latoya wants to hook Kenya up with guys. Kenya and other point out she is married. Latoya says she is separated. Is she though? The women argue about whether you can date when you are separated but not divorced. Drew and Latoya disagree. Drew says she and Ralph are contemplating divorce too.
Kenya and Cynthia talk privately. Kenya says she is going to file for custody and file a post-nup. How in the hell did Kenya not get a pre-nup? She is so screwed.
Drew & Ralph Aren’t Getting Along
Ralph surprises Drew with a beautiful dinner at home with flowers and rose petals and strawberries. Things were sweet for a few minutes and then it all goes left. Ralph likes to run away from home for days and not tell Drew where he is. I’d lay money that Ralph didn’t go the the beach by himself. Finally, he admits that he went to Tampa. AKA Stripper capital of the world. He didn’t even tell her that he was leaving. He also has hidden cameras around the house and he watched her while he was gone. That’s creepy. Then, tries to make it seem like she is the crazy one. She calls him a liar and walks off crying. She cries to production and tells them he is trying make her look stupid.
I’m not sure why we needed and extra 15 minutes for that.
