On tonight’s RHOA recap at least two of the housewives make it Charleston. But first, Porsha is going to do a whole lot of shit stirring. She’s been rather tame so far this season. It’s season 7 and I suppose it is time up her game. I don’t think we are going to get as many seasons as we usually do. I suspect the rest of the season will focus on stripper gate, right up to Cynthia’s wedding.
In real time news, Nene was recently on Tamar Braxton’s podcast where she claimed she quit because she didn’t like the storyline for stripper gate and was above it or something. Not sure how that matches up with original storyline that was Bravo fired her because they are racist and don’t want her to be able to eat. Or the one story she told about how Kandi somehow blackballed in the entertainment industry.
Anyway, this trip was filming in late September, then there was the wedding on 10/10/20. Then there was a bit more Covid stuff to deal with and Thanksgiving that pushed the principal filming into mid-December. My point is, they wouldn’t have brought Nene back that late in filming. Let’s get on with the show.
The Scooter AND The Lingerie Both Seem Odd To Me!
Someone is going to explain to me how having a scooter is going to help Drew spend more time with Ralph when he “goes out on jobs.” What are his jobs? Are they like Phaedra Parks jobzzzzz? And these two think it is a good idea to put someone who just got ankle surgery on a scooter where she has to balance herself to stay on? And who moves into a house in the same neighborhood? Am I just missing all the points of this scene? Help me out y’all.
Kenya and Latoya go out for breakfast. Latoya won’t let Kenya order anything fattening. Then, Kenya gives Latoya some of her bras and panties she never got around to wearing. Okay. I know I am not feeling well but nothing about this show has made a lick of sense to me so far. I guess Kenya is too big for them now. Latoya sniffs them. I AM SHOCKED! That their beach house is going to be on Isle of Palms. They are really strict about who films there. When Shep had his little version of the bachelor, he was denied filming permits for his house and the beach. Shep got very angry that they didn’t want anything with the Southern Charm stench filming there. I bet the homeowners are regretting leasing these women the house right about now.
Leaving In On A Jet Plane
I now totally understand why Kenya and Latoya flied on a private plane. Producers have made these two the “hostesses” of the party. So if they want to fly out a day early, and get Brooklyn settled in with her nanny, it’s not as bad as it sounds. And if everyone flew, it would require a bigger more expensive plane and
Bravo Kenya refused to pay for that. What is weird is that she called Drew ahead of time to tell her about the private plane. Kenya plugs Marc’s restaurant. Then says that she and Marc definitely over. In case you missed it, Marc announced their divorce this weekend right before Kenya’s 50th birthday.
Before we even leave to fight in a new environment, we have a Hollywood themed dinner party at Drew’s house. Can’t any of these women help Drew with her clothes and makeup? I am starting to think Drew’s side chick that I suspect might be more like side dick. It was MEN who were talking about how hot Drew was. I feel like I was supposed to pick up on that at the time and it’s only just now hitting me. I don’t know a thing about this man. I’m just telling you my gaydar is pinging. And it’s Atlanta.
The Hollywood Dinner Party
At first I was wondering why they were going to film outside when it looks like rain, but I think that is a filming requirement for people who don’t all live together during the pandemic. Nobody is letting the guests in the front door. Why is Kenya wearing a black Addias dress to a “Hollywood” dinner party? Also, I have never seen Kenya do a shot on camera, let alone kick it back with champagne. She must not be doing well at all. She’s a lightweight and already seems drunk. And quiet. Our girl seems to be in the bad place.
Porsha tells Drew that Latoya was making all kinds of fun of Drew’s wig at the last event. I told you Porsha was about to get messy. Everybody knew this was the topic because everyone complimented Drew wig when they first walked in the house. It is cute from the back but the head part of the wig is not. Porsha also throws Kandi and Cynthia under the table. Drew retaliates by talking about what is on Kenya’s head this night. Kenya is not exactly on her game at this dinner.
Drew Continues To Come For Kenya
Well, Drew is not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree. She is trying to out the jet storyline. I’m sure some producer will pull her aside and shut her up. But now she has pissed off Kenya. Kenya does end up telling the table that she and Latoya will be taking a private plane. WTF does anyone care how they get there? They are going a day early to set up. Then, everyone leaves the party. Latoya did not show up. Drew and Ralph went from looking like divorce to can’t keep their hands off each other.
Kandi and Porsha keep talking about having to leave their babies. Of course. Because that’s a storyline. They both have family to leave their kids with. These women are bringing stupid amounts of luggage. Half of them have to be empty, right?
Get On The Bus, Gus
Dennis drives the girls to the sprinter. Marlo shows up with full on body PPE and a ton of bleach wipes. I don’t blame her one bit. I would not get in long ass car ride with these people, or any other people. Kandi asked what the hell is going on with Porsha and Dennis. She says they are not together but they have been spending time together. Nobody believes they are not hooking up again. The bus conversation goes back to Kenya and Latoya on the jet. Then they found out Brooklyn was on the plane. With a nanny who has her own quarters! What is wrong with these people?
Meanwhile on IOP…Kenya and Latoya are assigning rooms and Marlo is giving “the bad room.” There are no bad rooms. It’s a gorgeous house. These two are going to have a great few hours before the angry mob arrives.
Next week: Marlo bitches about her room. The girls TRY to solve a murder mystery but appear to be too wasted to do so. It looks like Kenya order food for just herself. My TV is crapping out. This has already taken forever.
