What Is She Your Talking Head?! RHOA Episode 2 Recap
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is keeping the juice flowing this season. After a dramatic start last week, the foolishness kept flowing last night with Kim and Kenya’s race to the crazy. If you missed last night’s episode, check out the highlights here. And if you’re not tweeting with us through the show Sunday nights, make sure you get on it! (@madamenoire)
Kim’s Homeless, But Not Really
So the woman who was so worried about Kandi’s mansion in the hood doesn’t even have a home — except she actually does. For a good five minutes Kim kept going on and on and on about being homeless until Sweetie dropped a little gem about the newlywed actually still having a townhouse her family could move back into. That’s the point when Kim proclaimed her family needs every bit of 7,000 square feet to live in and KJ can’t survive without a basketball court to run on. That lil’ boy just started walking, stop living above your means Kim.
Kenya and Kandi Want Babies and Rings
I didn’t foresee Kandi, Kenya, and Phaedra getting along because I don’t perceive the two smalls as petty enough to get with the former Miss USA, but they ended up hitting it off. The main reason seemed to be Kandi and Kenya’s shared desire for a ring and babies, but I also think Kenya was hiding her crazy a little bit. They’ll meet the real Kenya Moore one day.
Kenya’s Big Butt is the Only One Her Boo Walter is Allowed to Like
Babies and rings aren’t the only things Kenya and Kandi have in common. By far, the most awkward scene this entire episode was Kenya’s dinner with her on-again, off-again man-friend. I don’t know what was worse, the look on Walter’s face when Kenya proclaimed her grand plan to have babies naturally, or her needing to excuse herself when Walter said he asked Kandi out once before. If you didn’t realize she was off her rocker before, it should have been confirmed last night.
Cynthia and Kenya are Still Beefing
The arguing we saw between Cynthia and Kenya on the premiere episode was just a taste of what’s to come all season. Kenya, in an effort to get try to get on Nene’s good side (and hope some of her celebrity rubs off on her) talked to the “very rich” housewife about her quarrel with Cynthia, saying she hopes it doesn’t ruin anything they have. Annoyed, Cynthia jumped all in the convo talking about how Nene doesn’t even know who she is and that’s when the fireworks began—again! I don’t really understand Kenya’s beef with Cynthia, someone might be a little jealous, dare I say it.
Nene Plays the Bigger Person Role
Nene has been putting on airs about being above all the drama for a little minute now, but on last night’s episode she actually proved it. Rather than shade Kim, Nene actually invited her to her affluent women of Atlanta event and was even rather cordial to her inside. Kudos for Nene for letting her mindset grow with her money.
Kroy’s Nose is Wide Open
Please refer to slide one. Kroy, ya’ll are getting kicked out of your $3 million home, your salary is $1 million/year, Kim’s is reportedly $500,000/year, and she bought you an Aston Martin last season. Why in the hizell is he buying Kim expensive jewelry. If that bracelet she wore on her wedding day had to be borrowed, that means you can’t afford it. Don’t go buying it later! Kim knew what she was doing snatching up that 27-year-old.
Kenya’s Got Mommy Issues
We may have gotten one piece of Kenya’s crazy puzzle confirmed last night. The cast newbie talked about her mother disowning her and being raised by her aunt who she views as her mom, and while for some people that gives them a deflated sense of self, it appears Kenya went the other route. This is no excuse for her actions but a least it’s some sort of partial explanation.
Operation Donkey Booty
Phaedra is working on yet another business: a donkey booty DVD. You can’t tell me this isn’t a woman about her money, plus did you peep her trainer last night? Hotness.
