Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: The Most Shocking Hug [Episode 8]

Posted on Dec 29 2014 - 9:56am by Ronnie D

RHOA

As my name says Ronnie Is Back!!!! I missed you all and I wish to express sincere thanks for all your kind words and prayers during this truly trying time for my family. Now get those cups out because here comes the tea!

On last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” we first see Phaedra with Momma/Pastor Regina breaking bread together and discussing how Apollo is no longer the clean man she married because he cannot keep away from the clubs before he goes to prison. Gotta get it in where you fit in, I guess. I’m too distracted with Phaedra heavy mortician application of her makeup #TurnOff HDTV. Her weave looks fab, though. She feels Apollo just cannot handle being married to a successful woman as herself. Well, I feel Phaedra cannot handle that she knowingly married a convicted felon and has lost control of her marriage. Phaedra the words worth then says that they haven’t heard anything from the bureau so they don’t know where Apollo will be” incarcerate.” Yup, Phaedra Parks, Esq. said incarcerate, not incarcerated. But I digress. Momma orders a Reuben.

RHOA

Speaking of grub, Kandi is with the now disbanded Granny Gang and Mama Joyce and I can truly say the Diet Is Off. Kandi is so excited to see the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and rolls that she almost forgets to give it up to J.C.  After prayer, the sisters congratulate Mama Joyce on her bountiful blessings of having a brand new home in her name. Just when we think Mama Joyce will start to show some grace and gratitude due to her taking medication for her “ammerisim,” not so fast – she admits that she refuses to give Kandi a key to her home. The pimp hand is strong in this one. Kandi once again tries to gain a mother’s love by talking messy and pledging her allegiance to her mom while telling her all the dirt Todd’s mom, Miss Sharon (R.I.P.), said about her in New York. Way to build a bridge Kandi. #GrannyGangReunited.

Caution:  Throughout the episode, all of Nene’s talking heads are in her Ode to Dutch Boy Paint Wig so you have been warned. Nene is meeting her newest BFF (Flunky) Porsha for what else, drinks. As she enters the establishment she asks the matre’d for the girl with a “whole lotta weave in her head.” #TheShadeIsReal. Horsha Porsha is excited to meet her and lets her know her training is almost complete because she too is now drinking Vodka – the newest Kool-Aid of the Cult of Linethia! They throw shade about Demetria’s party. Then Nene, who continuously says in her talking head she will not reach out to Cynthia, now says that she thinks (*cough* Bravo/Andy Cohen) they should all meet for drinks and squash this mess. Poor Horsha Porsha thinks it will be two against one and she is all for it. Stay tuned.

Cynthia feels as Claudia’s newest friend she has to bring out her inner RuPaul. She takes her to Derek J to tighten up her weave. Protect ya edges girl! I think Claudia is naturally pretty and should leave well enough alone.  They talk about the favorite phrase that pays – Roger Bobb, and I take a drink.  Word on the curb is that he has never claimed Demetria but forgot to give her the memo. As they gossip, Cynthia receives a text from Nene asking to join she and Porsha for drinks and “bring ya gurl, Kenya.” Cynthia feels NeNe is being a Moose in Sheep’s clothing but she is open to the meeting. 

RHOA

Kenya and Brandon are shopping for office space because Kenya is feeling a comeback thanks to Roger Bobb (take a drink).  Kenya receives a call from Cynthia inviting or rather insisting that she comes with her as her plus one. Kenya says she knows Nene doesn’t like her so this smells like a set up and she doesn’t want to be bothered. But we all know Kenya cannot refuse a good sit down so she agrees to go. She wonders what Nene has up her hooves. #Read.

Claudia looking fabulous when she picks up her mother and grandmother at the airport. For fun, she takes them to dinner to be served by drag queens.  I wanna go! Granny is digging the vibe. After a cocktail (not vodka) her mom is enjoying herself. They talk men, getting a baby daddy so she can have grandchildren and sex. Yup. Then the conversation gets serious. Claudia laments that her mom doesn’t show verbal affection. Her mom basically says talk is cheap, just ask your dad. We get to see a photo of Claudia’s foxy father (she looks just like him). I hope her mom reconsiders. #FixItJesus

Kandi is meeting with Todd in the blue office with the pink chair. They discuss the drama between the mothers. Todd is fed up and feels that it was messy for Kandi to repeat what his mom said about punching Kandi’s mom in the mouth. He basically tells her that from now on, they can have separate holiday visits with their parents because he is tired of being the whipping boy. I agree, actually. Kandi says she asked her mom to apologize (liar, liar).  Todd isn’t buying it. She gets up and walks away from the discussion. Todd accuses her of always walking away instead of dealing with the issues. #LawyerOnSpeedDial.

RHOA

Next on “Phaedra Knows Best” we see her having tooth brushing time with the boys, reading a book with the boys, and praying with the boys.  Yes, we get it; you will be a better parent than Apollo.  Her kids are cute and it is funny that Dylan refuses to acknowledge them unless they call him Mr. President.

Nene arrives in cut offs and a crisp white blazer to match her nails and teeth, m ‘kay, and greets her sidekick Porsha for the sit down.  As usual, they begin talking smack prior to the reconciliation when Kenya and Cynthia twirl inside.  The look on Porsha’s face is priceless. A fair fight boo boo (2 on 2).  Although champagne is already on the table the ladies order, what else, vodka!  Nene starts taking and doesn’t stop.  She doesn’t want to get too deep but she doesn’t understand why Cynthia doesn’t respect her. Cynthia tries to explain that she said she felt their friendship lacked respect. Nene says “don’t punch nobody and not expect to get punched back.”  Cynthia says Nene should stop making press conferences about how she will never be friends with Cynthia. Nene says she is a grown ass woman. Nene says this is some Burrrrchit!  Okay. Kenya tries to play mediator and even says (clutch the pearls) that Nene is validated in her feelings and they need to move past it.  Cynthia (in her talking head) wishes Kenya would mind her beeswax (but you insisted she comes chica, right?).   Meanwhile, Posha doesn’t know what to do so she stokes her mane (probably repeating I wish I was home, I wish I was home).  Porsha leaves for a potty break. Cynthia is now in full kiss Nene’s azz mode (literally – she kisses her 4 times) and is apologizing to Nene like there is no tomorrow. Nene just keeps nodding and mmmm hmmmm. 

RHOA

RHOA

I know Cynthia is trying to be the bigger person but I –Just-Can’t.  I am sure Peter spit out his Jamaican coffee when he saw this scene. When Porsha returns Nene says she and Cynthia need to make up too. Ding goes the bell and both are over talking each other. Nene keeps calling “Porsha!” and Kenya keeps calling “Cynthia!” However, Porsha only hears Kenya (too much weave blocking her ears I guess) and shouts out “this rude bitch, and “she is rude as a muthaphucka,”  #GangstaPonyAlert. Nene says that name calling isn’t necessary. I say what do you expect from an angry child? I was waiting for the kicking and screaming to follow. Nene was sitting too far from Porsha to cover her mouth this time. Kenya admits that they both have done things to be ashamed of and they should move past this mess. All the women ask Porsha if she can apologize also and acknowledge her part in the melee. Porsha does not apologize but says she will acknowledge her part if Kenya accepts full responsibility. WTH? Just hug it out girls and keep the vodka flowing because you cannot reason with the brainless. They do and they drink. In fact, Nene and Kenya actually high five each other and burst out laughing. Porsha strokes her weave and is probably chanting “Nene likes me best, Nene likes me best, Nene likes me best.”

  • LMAOO. Spot on Ronnie! Great recap. Porsha was DRUNK as a skunk when she yelled at Kenya.

    • RonnieIsBack

      thanks Boo. I think they all were a bit turnt up, but yes Horsha was just ridiculous. She looked like “what just happened, I got played.” Nene you told me to pull her hair at the reunion, now yall friends?’
      Dumbass!
      Horsha Turn in your peach and go.

  • italiano bambino

    I predict the HUG LAST WEEK boy i wasn’t wrong

  • italiano bambino

    Kandi needs to stop the mama joyce storyline the whole sharon vs joyce is sad. No matter how desperate she’s for having a storyline this shit is NOT WORTH IT

    • Todd is so controlling & dis respectful to Kandi, I don’t know how she can deal w/it! Clearly he’s a jealous opportunist that now brings his kid to live w/Kandi to mooch too. His kid really thinks Kandi will give her a clothing line?! Poor Riley! It’s painful to watch him ruin her dreams of wanting a baby & a happy life. He always has a negative problem to bark at her about, sad.

      • italiano bambino

        I am talikgn about MAMA joyce been an ASS for the last 4 seasons she’s been on. Kandi choose to married him not joyce. JMO.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Yes MJ is an PIMP lol

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        Wow, I don’t see that at all. I see him standing up for his Mother and he is not a door mat. JMO

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          We must be looking through the same “rose” colored glasses Ro, cause I don’t see it that way at all either. As a matter of fact I think Kandi is the one who is acting a fool by not controlling her Mother & allowing that to be around her child & her friends. Talk about embarrassing? Geez-Louise!

          • Rochelle Barozzi

            Agreed TigerLilly!

  • Gabby

    Nice one, Ronnie!

    Porsha actually started looking upset and jealous when Kenya and Nene started getting along and carrying on at the table. Anyhow we all know the Nene/Kenya “friendship” will NOT last.

    Secondly, I’ve about had it with Kandi. People don’t have to put up with her disrespectful and abusive mother. And she thinks it’s funny. Why is Kandi always laughing at her mother’s insults? I don’t see the hilarity. Now Todd’s mother is deceased and there’s no coming back from the ill-treatment. Kandi and her mother ought to be so ashamed.

    Lastly…NENE’S WIG! She can’t be serious. Somebody tell me it’s a joke!

  • Marsbars09

    Great blog Ronnie! I hope you had a Merry Xmas.
    I don’t think Todd and Kandi’s marriage will go another two years, especially after the passing of Sharon. Kandi is unable to provide the emotional and moral support to a spouse due to her diligence to her crazy momma.
    I don’t buy Fake’s mother of the year act. Bravo is really selling her as a mother left alone to raise two sons while her husband prepares to go to prison. #NotBuyingIt
    The coming together of Moose, Cynthia, Kray, and Porsha is totally producer driven. Moose does not give two sh*ts about those women.
    I don’t know why Kenya would agree to be in the midst of a woman who assaulted her. Isn’t she afraid for her safety? (eyeroll)

  • CoolBreeze14

    Welcome back Ronnie! You are hilarious and as always a great recap! Ok, let me get to it. LOL.

    Nene – She has looked a complete mess this whole season. Nene acts like she’s on Oprah’s level. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought Lisa Vanderpump was the REAL RICH chick on Bravo? Why do all these ATL socialite people act like they live in Beverly Hills? I miss back in the days when if you wanted to be a star you had to go to NY or CA. Now it’s country and backwards Atlanta. Ugh!

    Claudia – I enjoyed her scenes probably the most last night! She has an interesting grandmother and she really brings fun to the show. I just hate how some of the viewers are brushing her off because she talks about growing up biracial. Why should she be quiet about her experiences just because it makes others uncomfortable? She looks a lot like her dad, I agree. I love her mother’s accent. Claudia is a pretty woman and I didn’t like how Cynthia and Derek fatneck J (he’s ugly) were trying to act like she wasn’t up to speed with the rest of the ATL skanks. That girl is gorgeous how she is. They are the ones who look a mess!

    Cynthia – She lost points with me last night. Were her and Nene sleeping together? Is she still on team pretty? LOL. I was so confused. She acts like a dog in heat when Nene comes around. Her whole storyline basically died last night at that restaurant when she acted like she needs Nene to validate her as a woman. Lame. I just can’t. We shall see. I didn’t like how she was acting like Kenya needed to stay out of her and Nene’s drama. Kenya was only trying to take up for Cynthia because Cynthia is a lapdog. She cowers around Nene. I just hope Kenya, Claudia, and even Demetria realize that no matter how many interviews they give congratulating Cynthia for “moving on” Cynthia is still team Nene underneath all that tough girl act!

    Phaedra – When her storyline doesn’t involve Apollo she is a SNOOZEFEST. She DEFLECTS and never answers or talks about her REAL life and background. I feel that Phaedra is the one we know the least about in this group. Her kids are decent looking but so are a lot of other kids too. LOL.

    Kandi – A complete SNOOZEFEST. Kandi’s entire storyline is LAME. Todd never looked the least bit into her. He’s after that money. He seems like a nice and cool guy but Kandi is not the woman for him. She never accepts responsibility and anytime you mention any flaw about her ghetto, bitter momma she walks away.

    Porsha – I really wish Bravo would stop showing this slut. She is a classless, ratchet, ignorant, and a BIRD. This is NOT the show for her at all. She contributes nothing to it and Demetria is a better fit when it comes to “friend of the housewives.” As we have seen, when Kenya and Demetria had their little beef (if that’s what you want to call it) they handled their issues like grown mature women. This dumb bird Porsha didn’t even want to apologize and own up to her own BS! Why does this chick have fans???? I’ve always said she was bitter from the beginning when it came to Kenya because she probably thought when she came on the show her and Kenya were going to get off to a good start and Kenya figured out she was a dumb BIRD. Every since then, Porsha has held a grudge against Kenya. Porsha acts like she wants to sleep with Kenya! No doubt!

    Kenya – I’m really glad Bravo is showing a different side of her this season and we are seeing her trying to rebuild her career and brand. Brandon is such a good friend to her and he acts like a REAL man, gay or not. I often wonder how this show would hold up at this point without Kenya. I mean it’s not good like that at all. Kenya has an advantage this season though because she’s going to be on Celebrity Apprentice and I can’t wait! Kenya will probably make a fool of Vivica and Brandi just like she does Tamar. Tamar tweeted something last night to Kenya and oh the shade Kenya gave back was priceless.

    Again, great recap Ronnie!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks chica! I agree with 100% Horsha needs to go. She was a fake from day one with her picture perfect like. That’s why Kordell fired her and now so has Bravo. Dummy doesn’t see all the shade Nene throws at her constantly. She is the one jealous of Kenya….a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

      • CoolBreeze14

        LOL you’re welcome! Yes, I caught that shade Nene threw at her about her weave! Some friend huh?

      • misstc

        What mind?

    • Yolie

      Seriously, why is it that Nene doesn’t think her chit stinks and these other hags never call her on her bullshit when they do they always back down? Why are any of these people friends (I know TV)? Why did Todd marry Khandi when he knew she was never going to lay the law down with her mother?

      • 2015IsMyYear

        I really think those chicks are threatened by Nene’s size! That’s got to be all it is because ain’t no way I would let that BIG BIRD TRANSVESTITE intimidate me! It’s obvious Andy is kind of over her too. He doesn’t even trip off everything she says anymore. Todd is out for the money. I can tell he is sick of Kandi and her family and now what his mother died it’s only a matter of time now!

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Welcome back Ronnie! Big hugs! so happy you are here spillin’ the Atlanta tea for us girl! Missed you!

    Porsha got played like a dime-store fiddle! LOL! Dumb bish!

    & Kandi? When Todd leaves yo azz & he will, don’t act like your surprised okay? Cause you ALLOWED it to happen by defending that thing you call a mother! That angry, ratchet, useless, trifin’ piece of trash you call a mother!

    She’s not gonna give you a key to the house you just BOUGHT her???
    GTFO my house then bish! Puh-eeze Gurl! GTFU already & rein your mother in.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I missed you too TL! Thx.

    • Guardian

      Kandi is just like her “mother” – they can dish it out but they can’t take it.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Everybody knows how I speak about my Mom. She was & still is my hero, but that being said. If my Mom ever spoke to or conducted herself the way Mama Joyce does? She would not be welcome to come share any holidays or events or celebrations, if she couldn’t at least pretend to be civil.
        I would not allow it. Mom or not. It’s wrong.

        • Guardian

          Same with my sweet Mother T-L, but she would never act like this to begin with and neither would yours. I think Todd should get on with his financial life and not stick around to help K build her brand. Let her chase him for awhile. Maybe she would appreciate him a little more though I doubt it. She enables that “woman” and then sits back and says, “What can I do? She’s my mother.” She had no problem standing up to Todd’s Mom, pity she won’t do that with hers, despite what she claims. Hope MJ’s boyfriend tears this new house apart too – and then K gets the key. But, K will only make excuses or ask the universe, “What am I to do?” K and MJ deserve each other and I, like you, think Todd will go one day. Just looked at the clock – well, those I haven’t set for 1/5. My kits are fed up with Meow Mix and are now swiping at me. Going to have to dash out soon – supper for them is around the corner.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            R’uh r’oh, better get that kitty-chow & pronto G. They might message Chats & then you’d really be in trouble! LOL! Look out! Think I’m gonna use that excuse the next time I get stopped for speeding. But Officer you don’t understand I had to speed. My kitty needs food! LMAO!

            I agree. I know my Mom or your Mom would never act like that, but if she did? I certainly would not tolerate it happening around me or in MY house for that matter. You wanna act ratchet like that to people & embarrass yourself? Do it in your own house, on your own time. Not mine. Not gonna happen.

          • Guardian

            When they start nudging your purse you know it’s time to go. So I did and gave them extra helpings of their fave tinned food. Three little ferals that showed up at my patio door months ago. I am terribly allergic to cats. But, not going to let an animal starve so now, well, I have three sweet cats who have grown accustomed to the good life. And, I scratch and sneeze a lot.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Oh your poor thing! How sweet are you? ❤(ˆ‿ˆԅ)
            My hubby is allergic too but we went to the shelter & adopted our beasties & he suffers. (ɔ◔‿◔)ɔ ♥ But he says the lovin’ he gets in return is all worth it! LOL! Good for you G. & even better for the kitties!

  • She Stinks!

    Getting tired of crazy mentally ill Mama Joyce and her endless attempts to get camera time.

  • BeachSpin

    Great recap Ronnie! Claudia needs to get something going because we have heard the biracial story about four times now…we got it. Why does Kandi’s office look like Pee Wee’s playhouse…I can’t imagine sitting in there having any serious convo.

    • italiano bambino

      Hi beach looks like next week the storyline is shifting n we can see claudia getting on with nene boy i can’t wait. Demitria and claudia team up should be fun.

      • Yolie

        Oh yes! That’s going to be good! I’m looking forward to that.

      LMBO! I know Greg is MISERABLE sleeping beside that at night! How about Brandon tweeted yesterday evening “are you team beauty or team beast?” Brandon is hilarious!

        I love Brandon!!!

      And the blonde Prince Valiant wig.

  • Guardian

    Must confess that I have missed a lot of the ATL episodes this season. So, spent yesterday afternoon catching up (with leftover X-Mas candy). What can one say? A few new characters, some new wigs and weaves, and a few twists and turns – in other words, same-o, mo. But, one thing continued to remind me why I haven’t been tuning in . . . Kandi and MJ. I’m no longer sure which one I find more disgusting. A tie? As for the cancellation of her musical – which I saw a promotion for months ago and read a response to – that summed it up for me, “I can’t stand their twisted relationship on TV, why would I want to pay to hear it put to music?”

  • ZammyB

    @RonnieIsBack:disqus
    GURRLLLL you had me ROFL! I didn’t even watch the episode but thought DANG this recap is better than the episode itself! #Truth

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I love Ronnie’s ATL recap. Funny as hell!

  • misstc

    Can’t take mama joyce another minute! She’d be locked away in some home by now

    • Guardian

      And preferably not one K bought her. The more I see of this mother & daughter duo, the more I think they are one.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      OMG me either, she makes my stomach ache. I usually DVR the shows so I can FF through her but last night I watched it live.

      • Guardian

        I had pretty much stopped watching it because she irritates me so much – along with how K enables her.

      • italiano bambino

        Mama joyce is one piece of work i wonder how she feels after treating sharon like that.

        • Rochelle Barozzi

          In all honesty?? I think she most likely is glad she is gone and said something ugly about her passing. That woman is dead inside. Mentally unstable. Kandi acts a lot of the same way. It is really sad.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    Hey Ronnie!!!! So happy to see you 😀 Great recap. Dang why Didn’t think of the Rgger Bobb game?? LOL!!

  • italiano bambino

    Hi guys had to share ENJOY lol

  • Trippinhhard

    Great recap Ronnie—Kandi will be divorced soon, if she doesn’t change her snotty attitude, she is her mother all over again, just younger. Claudia is beautiful, Cynthia body I’d off this season and that high ass is too much.. Nene that wig and lipstick is so rude, so nasty, you look like a pluck chicken.. Just so damn ugly and her proper attitude is distracting. Fhedra dealing with the aftermath of her “clean man”.. She has cute kids, but no ine was trying to get an interview with her. Stop lying and stop trying to play bullfrog.. Kenya was the bigger person last night.. Buick was the one that should be sorry for her actions, I detest people that can’t acknowledge their wrong doing.. Cynthia poor Cynthia, Petra will rip her a new butthole for kissing Nene’s ass…

  • Yolie

    Great recap Ronnie. Somebody at Bravo don’t like Kandi. Almost every episode shown so far has shown her scarfing a meal down. She’s practically knocking people over to get to the plates, and her behind is getting bigger and bigger. Kenya and Marlo were right about her and her love of food. I like her Aunts because sometimes they speak wisdom, but really why do they all just yes’em Joyce, when she clearly is wrong?

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Thanks for a hilarious recap, Ronnie. My sincere condolences on your loss.

    Cynthia looked amazing in this episode. I love her sense of style. Porsha is the worst. She and Nene need to leave the show, immediately. I can’t stand to watch either of them on screen anymore.

  • Chloe

    Last nights episode showed me why Porsha got her peach snatched. Bravo was fed up with her after the reunion altercation. Her lack of remorse for any part of what happened is unacceptable. Porsha isn’t smart enough to realize that she can apologize to Kenya for the violence without apologizing for being angry.

  • Sunny

    This recap was better than the episode somehow! It really was a great read and “read”!!!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Grazie Bella!

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

      Hi Sunny! Welcome!

      • Sunny

        Hi Tigerlily! Thanks for the welcome and a Happy New Year to you!

  • rb18

    Porsha know that the apology Kenya is giving is a front for the camera. That lying fake witch is not sorry for anything she is did or is going to do. Porsha is not stupid. She took the divorce from Kordell in stride, told her attorney she didn’t want anything and is doing well. She has a job, a successful hair line, and is building her resume. For a young Black female I applaud her. She certainly isn’t dumb, I would associate that word with Cynthia Who went from being done with Nene to kissing her feet, how pathetic! Now I understand how easy it is for Peter to spend her money. . Kandi needs a Therapist couch. It is clear that Joyce is a cold manipulative woman who has withheld the affection that her daughter craves. It is sad to watch her attempt to buy her mothers love and allow her to hurt other people while she gives that silly laugh. Joyce is even spreading the same Toxic behaviors to Riley There is no way Kandi can claim to love and miss Ms. Sharon after the last episode. The New York scene was bad enough but Sunday as she sat there with those illiterate, evil, nasty Aunts and talked about her husband Mother, it was sad. The fact that she repeated what she said wasn’t a the real problem. The problem was the disdain and disrespect in her voice as she repeated what Ms Sharon said and how she responded to her, saying she wasn’t going to allow her to do anything to her mother they then laughed. How do Todd look at that and see her as someone who loved his mother or even liked her. She is a very two faced individual and that is a learned behavior. She is doing the same thing with Phaedra, whose friend are you? She then lied to Todd and said she told her Mother to apologize. I don’t see Todd sticking around long. Kandi is just like her Mother, she believe in order to get her Mother’s acceptance she must do and act in a way that is acceptable to what Joyce wants. Anything else would be betrayal and will bring on the raft of Joyce, which she considers betrayal. Todd rationale makes no sense to her so she dismisses him and put her mother first. She has money but she doesn’t have the sophistication and the intellect to realize that her and her Mom are operating from total dysfunction and have created a Toxic atmosphere that is normal for them. But foreign to Todd and his Mother. I don’t think he can continue to sustain himself in that environment long term. Especially since his mom’s death and the way they ridiculed her. I use to really like Kandi. I now have no respect for her or her Mentally ill Mother.
