Mama Joyce Disses Todd, And Phaedra Sets Kenya Straight For Texting Apollo: RHOA Episode 2
What had you talking from last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta? Was it Phaedra and Kenya discussing the inappropriate texting that had been going on with Apollo? Was it Porsha’s hot short wig vs. Kandi’s fuchsia curls? Mama Joyce basically calling Todd a broke buster? Or what about Porsha saying she and her sister were as close as “Siamese cats”? There was a lot going on with last night’s episode of RHOA, and in case you missed it, we broke it down for you here:
Kenya Wins Case Against Her Landlord
This past summer, Kenya’s landlord was having a ball running the reality star’s name through the mud, claiming Kenya wasn’t paying her rent and that she wasn’t taking good care of the space she was renting. But after some messy court dates, a judge eventually threw out an eviction judgment against Moore. After winning the bout with her landlord, Kenya laughed it up with her assistant Brandon and her lawyer, and was flanked by paparazzi! I mean, if you consider two guys with Nikon cameras and a guy pretending to be a reporter “paparazzi.” Too bad we all know those were randoms called by Bravo…
Porsha Says She Was Broke During Her Marriage
After picking up a $5,000 spousal support check from Kordell for the month (which we know he was initially NOT trying to provide for her), Porsha and her mother discussed the monetary struggles she dealt with in her marriage. What was Kordell’s really was just Kordell’s as both women claimed that Porsha was really walking around with an empty wallet most of the time and asking her mom for money while married to a wealthy footballer. Hell, maybe that’s why she was so hellbent on doing Real Housewives of Atlanta in the first place!
NeNe and Kenya Work Things Out…For Now
After folks got their ears pulled and cussed out during episode one of the season, Kenya and NeNe decided to meet up and bury the hatchet. Of course, they clear the air on Walter being invited to NeNe’s wedding (it wasn’t a personal attack on dramatic Kenya, but Walter and Gregg are cool), and why NeNe didn’t call Kenya during her eviction drama (NeNe didn’t really believe that Kenya was out on her a**–and she wasn’t). In the end, they decided to be cool for now, and NeNe even found a way to get Kenya to try and talk things out with Phaedra. But am I the only one who thinks NeNe does things like this so that she can watch these chicks squabble for her own entertainment?
Cynthia’s Not Pregnant, She Has Fibroids, And Peter Thinks It’s Comical
Remember how we thought Cynthia was pregnant and were giving her congratulations and what not? Well…about that…
According to this episode, the real reason Cynthia’s stomach was bloated was because she’s been dealing with fibroids. Not only do they make her stomach swell up after eating, but they lowered her sex drive, and made her periods heavier and much longer (10 days). Despite having a face full of tears and runny eye makeup, Peter found the whole thing silly (because he doesn’t understand how serious fibroid issues can be) and tells her to just stop stuffing her damn face as she lifts up her shirt and shows off her belly. Unfortunately, Cynthia, as usual, didn’t call him on his insensitive behavior.
Phaedra Explains Why She Can’t Go For Kenya
After calling Walter a rental boyfriend, Phaedra breaks down why she doesn’t want to be bothered with Kenya. “I don’t foresee that we’ll ever be friends, she just did some things I can never get past.” That includes propositioning Apollo, texting him, and just crossing the line in general.
Phaedra Disses Apollo In Front Of Her Friends
As you saw last week, Phaedra, Apollo and their growing family are trying to get comfortable in their new home in Atlanta. Apollo has been trying to fix up the house in his own way, while Phaedra tries to balance her never-ending responsibilities and gets help from everyone but her husband. With company in the home, a friend compliments Apollo’s work on the house and Phaedra shuts all that down by questioning his taste, including pointing that he put a pool table in their living room. He later says that she puts so much into her work that she’s lagging on her other responsibilities in the home, but the women make it clear that Cynthia does all the hard work with the kids and her mortuary exams, and her businesses in general. Before you know it, Apollo exits stage left in a huff and Phaedra lets folks know, “I’m not worried about Apollo, chile.” She better be careful…Kenya’s somewhere hiding in the bushes waiting for her shot.
Cynthia Seeks Help For Her Fibroids
After taking Peter to the doctor with her to see what can be done about a procedure to help Cynthia with her fibroids, he learned quite a lot about his wife’s condition, and that it was about more than just eating the wrong food from time to time. The doctor explained that Cynthia’s condition was affecting her sexual relationship with Peter, and offered her two options: a hysterectomy, or Uterine Fibroid Embolization–not surgery, and a lot less invasive. She jumps at the chance to get it.
Phaedra And Kenya Clear Things Up About Inappropriate Texts To Apollo
After a tension-filled back-and-forth, Kenya tried to let it be known that she didn’t do anything wrong by communicating with Apollo, and that if it was a problem, Phaedra should have said something to her. I know, she just doesn’t believe in common sense. There was even a moment when Kenya and Porsha went at it after Porsha tried to interject her opinion and Kenya called said opinion some “stupid s**t.”
Phaedra and the ladies let Kenya know overall that she was being inappropriate, especially when Kenya told Phaedra during last season’s reunion show that she should get an AIDS test after dealing with a man who has been in prison. But in the end, Kenya made it clear that she doesn’t want Apollo, and even though she doesn’t want a relationship with Kenya in the future, Phaedra says she’s mature enough to be around anyone, including Ms. Moore.
Kordell Moves Porsha’s Stuff Out Of His Home
While Porsha was planning to grab her stuff out of Kordell’s home, hopefully at a time when he wouldn’t be there, he actually sent a message to her lawyer saying that he was packing her stuff and having it brought to her because he didn’t want her to come back to his place. Big ouch. As Porsha said, homeboy was just packing up her stuff and throwing it away as if she was just some “random,” and not his wife. Not cool!
On a side-note, can we talk about how confusing and low-key sad it was that Porsha said she and her sister are “so close, we’re like, Siamese cats”? GIRL, BYE!
Kandi’s Mom, Joyce, Goes Off About Todd, The Ring He Bought Kandi, And Why Riley Doesn’t Like Him Either
I haven’t seen anyone’s mom be so passionate in a negative way about a man like Mama Joyce has been about Todd. In last night’s episode, she let Kandi know that she doesn’t trust her husband-to-be, claiming he’s not contributing anything to Kandi financially and that he can’t provide for her. Unfortunately, a lot of the time it just sounded like she was worried about Kandi’s money more than her heart (and making sure she, as in Joyce, doesn’t get kicked out on her behind when they marry), and went as far as to say the engagement ring he bought her was wack. She also claimed Kandi’s daughter, Riley, didn’t even like Todd, so that Kandi could get rid of him once and for all. With tears in her eyes, Kandi still stood by her man and let momma know–the materialistic, monetary stuff she’s worried about isn’t why Kandi’s with Todd, so she’s going to stay with him.
Do you think she should?
