Momma Joyce and sisters

The shoes are coming off–literally. This episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta got ridiculously ugly when Momma Joyce tried to go head-to-head (and shoe-to-head) with Kandi’s friend Carmon. And if that wasn’t enough, Cynthia and actor Leon talk about sex (their daughter Noelle having it), Kenya tears up about her mom, and Apollo gives the most interesting apology to Phaedra that we’ve seen on TV in a while. Let’s talk about all the drama that went on with RHOA last night…

The last two episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta have featured the ladies on a couples vacation to Anguilla. If you’re remotely a fan of reality TV, or even if you’ve traveled with friends, you know that you see the best and worst of folks when you get them out of their usual environment. Couples are no different.

The best of the couples was Peter and Cynthia. After the drama that occurred on their wedding day, it was no surprise that Peter wanted a do-over. Last night, he surprised Cynthia with a second wedding to renew their vows. Without Cynthia’s sister around to stir up some drama, the ceremony went off without a hitch. It was a great Black love moment, something I wish we could get more of on this show specifically, and on TV in general.

Kandi and her new boo Todd made the most of their vacay by getting frisky in the public Jacuzzi. Like Phaedra, who said “Since I’m in love with my own vagina, I protect it dearly,” I was turned off by the idea, but I’m guessing — hoping, really — the hot water will remove any germs, from them or the couple beforehand. Todd and Kandi seemed chipper in their post-coitus home video update, so I guess no harm, no foul.

Nene and Gregg have been surprisingly tame over the last few episodes. And I’m taking that to mean that whatever they are trying to rekindle is going well. To let Nene tell it, Gregg, who has made it clear he wants to be her husband again, was encouraged when she caught the bouquet at Cynthia’s wedding. Gregg was cheering like the Falcons had just won the Super Bowl. (Nene hilariously described him as “acting like the Klumps,” an allusion to the charming and chubby family from The Nutty Professor.) It gave me hope that perhaps Peter and Cynthia’s wedding won’t be the only one we see this season.
