Real Housewives of Atlanta RECAP: ‘He Said, She Said’ [Episode 17]

Posted on Mar 10 2014 - 2:18pm by Nancy

 

The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta returned last night and things heated up in Mexico!

With the Bailey Bowl fiasco behind them, Kenya thinks the ladies and their partners could use a little R&R and organizes a trip to Mexico.

Nene Checks Cynthia
Cynthia and Nene meet to go bathing suit shopping for Mexico. The conversation quickly turns to the fallout from the Bailey Bowl (the blow-up where Marlo almost kicked Nene’s ass). Cynthia tries to express to Nene her disappointment of the disastrous ending and brings up Marlo’s name. Nene quickly shuts Cynthia down and dismisses the conversation as if Marlo fell off the planet and Marlo no longer existed. Wow!!! Nene chin checked Cynthia HARDCORE on national TV, with dismissive, rude and downright uncouth friend’s like Nene who needs enemies?

Kenya And Marlo Meet
Kenya pays a visit to her new BFF, Marlo Hampton. The ladies rehash the events of the Bailey Bowl and Marlo describes how deeply hurt she is by Nene’s behavior towards her. Marlo reveals the jaw dropping truth behind the Bailey Bowl drama with NeNe “Nay-Nay” Leakes. Nay-Nay gave Marlo an ultimatum before the Bailey Bowl…it’s me or Kenya!  Marlo says, NeNe told her not to be friends with Kenya or else forget her as a friend. Nay-Nay considers herself the HBIC and she decides who can be friends with whom. Sounds like Nay-Nay is projecting misguided anger towards Kenya and Marlo’s friendship because Hollywood has given her the boot. Kenya is shocked by Marlo’s revelations! In her talking head, Kenya says are we in high school? I agree, only mean high schools girls issue friendship ultimatums!?!

Marlo Hampton

Phaedra & Apollo
Next, Phaedra and Apollo discuss Kenya’s invitation to Mexico. The couple recalls their last group trip and how it didn’t turn out so well. They ponder if they should attend the Mexico trip. Phaedra is considering leaving Apollo home to babysit their boys, whom by the way are too precious for words. I much rather watch Ayden clean the pool and Mr. President drool than Phaedra and Apollo.  Phaedra wants to go but is thinking of leaving Apollo at home since she obviously can’t trust her man around Kenya. Insecure much? The always comical and polite Southern Belle delivered her usual one-liner for the night when she referred to Kenya as “Kenya Moore Whore.”

RHOA

Messy Peter Meets With Kordell
Peter and Kordell meet for tea in the garden. I almost forgot how beautiful and grand Kordell’s house was. It was nice to see it again in all it’s opulence.  The two men sip on tea and gossip make small talk about the running of the household and nannies, etc. Once the small talk is out of the way, the men get down to discussing Kordell and Porsha’s divorce. Messy Peter wasted no time in asking Kordell his side of the story (because he had already heard Porsha’s side). Kordell tells Peter, Porsha asked him for a divorce and she was aware of the divorce filing prior to him announcing it on Twitter. Kordell claims Porsha’s family was the real reason for the divorce, they intruded on their marriage and caused problems. Apparently, Kordell came home one day and found Porsha’s mama eating a LARGE pepperoni pizza on his bed!!! OH LAWD!! That threw Kordell into a tailspin and that may have been the final straw for him. Could you imagine the horror of finding your mother-in-law eating a LARGE pepperoni pizza on your bed, soiling your 600 thread count sheets? Sounds like grounds for divorce to me! Messy Peter sat there listening, agreeing and was very sympathetic towards Kordell side. How sweet!

 

Heading South Of The Border
Kenya arrives first with her traveling companion, Miss Lawrence. The two set-up the guest rooms with pictures of Kenya. Nice touch! The rest of the group travel together with the exception of Phaedra and Apollo, who arrive the following evening. On the ride to the hotel, Messy Peter, once again inserts himself into housewives business. He brings up that he and Kordell met and discussed the divorce. The entire bus is silenced. Probably in shock at Peter’s assertion into matters that don’t concern him. Excuse me, but who appointed Peter, intermediary on all matters RHOA? Peter has been more catty and bitchy than any of the housewives combined this season. Is he auditioning for a peach? Watch your back Nay-Nay, Peter is coming for your spot boo.

RHOA

Everyone manages to arrive in one piece and they are ready for margarita’s and relaxation. Kenya graciously greets the arriving guest and everyone is all smiles. The group tours their rooms. Of course the HBIC is given the presidential suite. Nay-Nay would not have it any other way. Miss Lawrence brakes the ice by twirling for the guests in a poncho and a mustache. As the group settles in, Porsha questions why Kenya’s African prince did not accompany Ms. Twirl on the trip.  Finally, everyone is happy for a change!

RHOA

Later that night, the group meet for dinner, immediately the conversation turns to Porsha and Kordell’s relationship. And the tea spilling began! The Nida’s arrived just in time for dinner and drama.

RHOA

You can clearly see Porsha is uncomfortable addressing the matter. Porsha does her best to explain to the group how Kordell’s image was “tainted” (referencing the numerous gay rumors that plagued him for years) and she told him she would “help him fix it.” Poor Porsha, with limited vocabulary, it’s hard for her to articulate, she was hired as Kordell’s beard (allegedly).

Beard (companion)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Beard is a slang term describing a person who is used, knowingly or unknowingly, as a date, romantic partner (boyfriend or girlfriend), or spouse either to conceal infidelity or to conceal one’s sexual orientation. The American slang term originally referred to anyone who acted on behalf of another, in any transaction, to conceal a person’s true identity.[1] The term can be used in heterosexual and homosexual contexts, but with increasing acceptance of gay culture, references to beards are seen in mainstream television and movies as well as other entertainment.

RHOA

Naturally Kenya (like any logical thinking soul) took Porsha’s statement to mean, Porsha agreed to be Kordell’s beard. Messy Peter also seized the opportunity to bash Porsha and aggressively demanded she clear up her statement because it implies Kordell is gay. Porsha, immediately denied the accusation, stating that’s not what she meant. Poor Porsha stepped into some shit with this group that her tiny brain is not equipped to handle. Poor thang!

Next week, the drama is escalated when Peter and Gregg get into a heated shoving match and things spice up between Kenya and Apolla. Why do I have the feeling Phaedra will cut a bitch over her man?

    Cracks me up that Miss Lawrence is Cray Cray’s ‘date’ to Mexico! 😀

    • Dr Seuss

      I would rather Lawrence than cast, at least he’s nice and funny. He cracks me up!

      • twifan2

        BUT I wanted to see Cray Cray’s African prince! Make he was busy ‘handing out’ Blood Diamonds back home? 😉

        • Dr Seuss

          OH LAWD!!!! Hammercy!!!! Say it ain’t so about the blood diamonds and Kenya’s African Prince.

          • twifan2

            Probably more Cubic Zirconias. LOL

        • shayvoe

          He was way too busy sending out emails to the U.S. trying to get out of Africa. I got one last week. Thought about sending the money, so Kenya would have her man, but decided I needed a new car more.

          • Marsbars09

            You’re so funny, Shay !

          • shayvoe

            😉

          • twifan2

            Hey, keep your hands off my ‘prince’! :p

          • Dr Seuss

            ROFLMAO!!! #DEAD

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twi! I think it’s pathetic that Kray seems to have no girlfriends of her own

      • SAMRA1116

        Kenya is not a girlfriend type—she likes to flirt with other ppl men. No man is coming for her, unless he paying. There was a blind item about that. Kenya is attractive, intelligent, the outside is pretty, but that’s it. No man has claimed her.

      • twifan2

        Hi HI Mars! 🙂
        Kray Kray is a lonely twirler.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I like it and I am glad he is there..I love me some Lawrence…

  • ZammyB

    This is great! I don’t understand WHY Peter wants a peach so bad! Peter was Krayonce’s SIDE kick for crying out loud!

    • Dr Seuss

      Thank you! Peter was the biggest pot-stirring, finger wagging bitch last night. What the hell is the man’s problem?

  • WestCoastFeed

    Are Peter and Kordell business partners in that bar in South Carolina?

    • shayvoe

      Yes…it’s no wonder he is now cozying up to Peter…Last year he was dissing him, and taking up for Portia. Peter is a catty woman in a man’s body.

      • Marsbars09

        And he was especially messy last night. Not a good look.
        How are you doing Shay?

        • shayvoe

          Hi Mars…I doing well…hope you are too. He was bitch last night. Cynthia needs to check her husband.

          • Marsbars09

            Cynthia’s too scared, remember?

      • Dr Seuss

        Thank you!

    • Dr Seuss

      Yes! That’s why he’s kissing Kordell’s ass so much. Peter has ulterior motives.

      • SAMRA1116

        He was kissing Kordella ass from the start. Rewind that. Lol

      • RonnieIsBack

        OR kissing something….

        • Dr Seuss

          WORD!!!

  • Bryan

    “Where is my Peach?”

    • SAMRA1116

      In your pants. U know that. Messy ass Peter is being himself—a lazy ass jerk.
      Hey Bryan

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Samra! I see you’re wickedly snarking once again.

        • SAMRA1116

          Het Mars—I have a few free days—back to grandkids tomorrow.
          Girl ur snarking is point on.

          • Marsbars09

            🙂

    • twifan2

      Over in the pit.
      Hi Hi Bryan! 🙂

    • Dr Seuss

      OMG!!!! Hilarious!!!! Papa smurf!!!!

    • RonnieIsBack

      LOLOLOL

      • Dr Seuss

        Too damn funny!

    • Marsbars09

      Bryan! That is too much! Where did you get that?!

      • Dr Seuss

        LMAO!!!!

  • SAMRA1116

    I didn’t miss nothing. Everyone knows Porcha has marbles for brains. Po child show never speak n learn sign language. Peter is just as messy as her was from, the start. He needs to get a REAL job, apparently he starts businesses, knowing damn well, he’s no businessman. Apparently he’s using them as a tax write off.

    • Dr Seuss

      Bloop! Bloop!

  • Marsbars09

    Nene is so juvenile it’s pathetic. She called Marlo using a 3-way phone and told her it’s her or Kray? And dumb Cynthia was listening in on it? I’m sure glad Marlo stood up to Moose and told her what was what. That was the real reason behind Moose’s rudeness toward Marlo.

  • Marsbars09

    I think one of the most humiliating parts of this episode was Nene’s treatment towards her “BFF” Cynthia. When Nene asked her where did she think things went wrong at the Bailey Bowl Cynthia stuttered, too scared to even utter a reply. Nene dismissed her like she was a stupid child and marched out of the store, leaving Cynthia behind. It was sad to see Cynthia, with her head down, wilt like a flower.
    I think Cynthia could have said things went down hill at the Bowl after Marlo arrived. What would have been wrong with that? Unless, however, she thought Moose played a part in the Bowl’s demise.
    I don’t understand why Cynthia puts up with Moose. She is self-centered, mean, disrespectful, and cold hearted just like Peter.

    • Dr Seuss

      “I think one of the most humiliating parts of this episode was Nene’s treatment towards her “BFF” Cynthia.” <===== Thank you. I was like WTH kind of friend is Nene to humiliate Cynthia on national TV. Nene is a horrible friend who only cares about herself and has no regard for people much less her 'friends"

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Doc! You felt that too, huh?

        • Dr Seuss

          Hi Mars! How you doing today!!!

          • Marsbars09

            I’m OK. I’m on my lunch break doing what I love to do, chatting with you guys.

          • Dr Seuss

            Oh nice! What’s for lunch? I’m starve?

          • Marsbars09

            Spinach lasagna. Can you make that?

          • Dr Seuss

            Sure!! That’s easy to make.

          • twifan2

            :p

          • Dr Seuss

            I’ll make you one when you come to visit! 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            You’re so kind and nurturing, Doc. What would we do without you? 🙂

          • twifan2

            Have enough for 2?
            🙂

          • Marsbars09

            Sorry Twi! It was one of those frozen entrees made just for one.

  • Marsbars09

    Watching Peter & Kordell talk about womens’ business was too much! You’d think underneath their masculinity lies femininity. LOL! They sounded like two old bitties gossiping. LOL!

    • Dr Seuss

      Thank you, Mars! The sad part of this whole thing is A LOT of grown ass men behave like this. They sit around and gossip like a bunch of heckling hens. Especially in the workplace. It’s pathetic!

      • Marsbars09

        OMG! I haven’t come across that yet.

        • Dr Seuss

          Count yourself lucky then. It exist.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Men gossip way more than women..it is horrible…

    • RonnieIsBack

      Men on Film Baby!

  • Marsbars09

    Fake needs to acknowledge publicly what a lowdown, trifling man her hubby is. I’m tired of her blaming Kray for trying to lead Apollo astray. Fake know damn well the type of man she has.

    • Dr Seuss

      Yes she does. Her insecurities were really showing last night.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Preach…which is why she is soo freaky in the first place…you take your man to the strips clubs to gawk at othre women, you yourself wear your thong swimsuit (last year) to try to get him to keep his eyes on you and you still blame Kenya? bish please…Fakedra needs to have several seats for real…

  • Marsbars09

    Another humiliating part of this episode was the treatment of poor Porscha from elders that should know better.
    Peter had no right to question Porscha bout her marriage. And why did he do that in front of everybody in the limo? What a f*cking a-hole! If I were Porscha I would have shut it down real quick.
    Part 2 of the humiliation came at dinner time. Peter, Kray, Moose, and Geritol Greg all gave their two cents. If I were Porscha I would have left the dinner table.
    If Cynthia had any courage she would have told Peter to shut it down the first time.
    These people are trifling, I swear. SMDH.

    • Dr Seuss

      Yeah, poo Porsha was under attack last night. It was coming from every angle and she was not equipped to handle it.

      • SAMRA1116

        That’s the same shit Porsha did Kenya last year.
        Maybe I will watch, when the repeat comes on.
        Cat got her tongue— bragging, now she’s almost begging.
        Why Porsha momma didn’t save her condo.

        • Dr Seuss

          Give it a watch Samra. It was a little funny scene how they all were like…so in other words you were his beard?? And surprisingly, Nay-Nay was quiet as a church mouse. She didn’t say a word. The 2 stars of the show last night, were Peter and Kenya.

          • SAMRA1116

            I caught the second half on oxygen—I saw so much wrong it not funny. Kenya is the bitch—who is single n leave pics of yourself in their room. Needy much—that ass look a a baby’s diaper–body is banging, but that bitch is crazy. Cynthia is forever trying to keep the peace—that’s her job in real life. Nene was herself—Peter is one bitch as man—Greg still trying to be the voice of reason –I like that about him– Porsha –no words for her—she need some serious comprehension courses. That dumb fool could never pass a test, to get a job.
            Gotta go do real community service—later.

          • Dr Seuss

            Peter is a bitch. Trying to insert himself in women’s business. Punk ass.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Yup she sure did…

      • RonnieIsBack

        You know her weave pieces were pulling her scalp like a mutha…

        • Dr Seuss

          And all that Mexican hair is making homegirl think she’s Mexican. Po thang!

  • RonnieIsBack

    First BRAVO WITH THE RECAP. I am sooooo glad you don’t write like you are on the payroll of the bravalebrities like *cough* another site…Anyway,….
    Yes NeNe was HORRIBLE to her BFF Cynthia in the swim shop..then she actually had the gaul to say she only wears bikinis..yeah we saw those pics and rolls, and we saw you get lip on your stomach, your breast enhanced and your nose shaped like a tulip. Add a dash of the toupee and I ask you, who is the fakes put together HW of them all? hmmmmmm.
    I am glad Marlo put NeNe on blast and talked about their 3-way conversation (who does that? I haven’t done that since I had my AT&T Snoopy Phone in Junior High School trying to see if Scott really liked me while my BFF asked him)…
    Porsha Porsha…oh hell Buick dumb azz Buick..you stepped in it ROYALLY. I gotta go to Kordella’s twitter page..I know he did a two snaps and a Say What Now!? Bish!!!!
    As I said before, who is the Head Doctor to call anyone a whore? Seriously that criminal needs to keep her stones and save them for Apollo and herself when they are making license plates for the gubberment…
    I cannot wait till next week also.
    Great great recap!!!

    • Dr Seuss

      Nene in a bikini is criminal. My poor brain just thinking of it. I don’t know who the hell she thinks she’s fooling. I have NEVER seen her in a bikini on any group trip on any season. Kenya looked gorgeous in the orange wrap last night. Simply beautiful.

    • Marsbars09

      Great recap, Ronnie! The AT&T Snoopy Phone got me howling!

      • Dr Seuss

        Ronnie is a riot.

        • Marsbars09

          She’s one of my favorite posters.

          • Dr Seuss

            Ronnie is one of my old time favorites. She will make you bust a gut with laughter.

  • RonnieIsBack

    On Kenya’s twitter page she said they are shooting the reunion in a few weeks…oooh weee that is going to be somethign else…
    Wanna bet Peter is sitting on one side of the couch by Andy LOL….

    • Dr Seuss

      Peter wants to sit with the hw’s not with the husbands.

      • Marsbars09

        LOL!

      • Birdie11

        He’s gna be in a sprint stance start position waiting in the wings.

  • Dr Seuss

    GREAT JOB!!! On the recap Nancy!

  • Birdie11

    Nene’s diva attitude is making her a one dimensional snooze. While Kenya is a bit cray, I am loving her antics. The poncho bikini twirl and all the pictures of her in the rooms were priceless. I am all in for colorful eccentricity as long as it’s clever, and not intellectually SLOW. Peter should be Kordell’s Jamaican housekeeper in his purple gingham shirt…because he acts like a WOMAN. Someone needs to get the brain bleach ready if we are going to be subjected to Nene in a bikini! God help us all.

    • Dr Seuss

      Bloop! I agree with entire post. Nene’s diva attitude and antics has worn me down. I used to be a big time fan but anymore. Kenya on the other hand is crazy but funny with her twirling ass. LMAO @ Peter should be Kordell’s Jamaican housekeeper/cook in his purple gingham shirt. Yes, he is acting like a freaking woman, all up in their business and have one-on-one’s with the husbands and interjecting his opinion on almost everything. Nene in a bikini is a big HELL NO!!!!!!!!!

      • Birdie11

        I love that another woman could see the humor in those pics in the rooms…women can get so pissy about something that just should be laughed at!! *high five* Suessie!

        • Dr Seuss

          *High five* GF! Women put each down and make big deals out of nothing far too much. We all need to laugh stuff off.

    • Marsbars09

      Great commentary, birdie! Peter and Kordell were going at it like fussy old women.

      • Birdie11

        They think throwing in a few “yeah brah”s makes them look masculine…NOT! Hey Marsie!

        • Marsbars09

          Hi birdie! How are you this evening?
          I agree with your statement. I commented that Peter and Kordell are actually quite feminine under their masculinity.

          • Birdie11

            Hence the lavender gingham…LOL! It was almost 80 today and windows wide open! How are you doing?

          • Marsbars09

            It’s warm out here and I’m enjoying it!

          • Dr Seuss

            It was in the high 60’s here and I had the window open all day too. Nice 🙂

          • Dr Seuss

            Hi Marsie. Good evening darling! 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            Hi Doc! How’s it going?

          • Dr Seuss

            Nothing much!! Cooking dinner for the fam. Should be done soon.

          • Marsbars09

            Is it spinach lasagna? 🙂

          • Dr Seuss

            LOL! Not tonight…on the menu..Braised short ribs of beef, macaroni & cheese and rice.

          • Marsbars09

            Shoot, that’s better than lasagna!

          • Dr Seuss

            🙂

  • Chloe

    Nene has become a self-centered pompous has been. I could not believe the way she treated her so-called friend Cynthia. And Cynthia is very dumb to allow someone like Nene to treat her that way.

  • SAMRA1116

    Several site are saying–this is Cynthia’s last season. Oh well if bag rocks is still on, that’s sad. SMDH
