Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: “Hello Mr. Chocolate” [Episode 14]

Posted on Feb 16 2015 - 8:53am by Ronnie D

RHOA

In this episode of “The Real Housewives of AtlantaApollo is pouring so get your cups ready! First, Kenya and Cynthia visit the new and improved home of Claudia. It is fierce and fabulous with a fantastic view of the city and not a red cup in sight. Claudia’s cat, Shelly, greeted the ladies like “bishes look but don’t touch.” They catch up on what happened at the job-sponsored welcome party for Porsha. Claudia tells them she showed solidarity in public towards Porsha but Porsha was nice/nasty, you know the southern way. Claudia breaks down and I clutched my pearls like “don’t waste tears over ignorance girl,” but I guess she is genuinely hurt because their behavior is reminiscent of high school  with all the lies and racial slurs. She feels she only told the truth about Porsha. A dumb heaux who messes with married men for cars and handbags by any other name is still a Porsha. Darn that double standard. Claudia, suck this chit up and forget about it. Karma is a much better teacher and she doesn’t discriminate. Just wait for it.

RHOA

Speaking of karma, the grits have hit the fan with Todd and Kandi. They are packing to go away because Todd scored a gig for Kandi to have a bit part in a made for television movie. I think he did this to keep her busy. Todd, with his newly cut and curled hair has informed Kandi that he will not be returning to Atlanta with her on the same flight, AFTER she inquired why he was packing so many clothes. He says he has to “work.” Kandi says he is always needing a break and she is not feeling his urges to get away from her and Atlanta. Kandi looks stressed. Todd looks relieved that he is about to party in L.A.

Uncle Ben Peter has decided to stop watching his own pot of rice, because after speaking with Apollo, another pot is boiling over and is about to explode at the Nida/Parks residence. Peter picks up Apollo so they can get their drink on and blow off some steam.  Before they have a sip of anything, Apollo starts spilling tea about Phaedra. He says they have been fighting like pit bulls because Phaedra is having an affair. He went through her phone and found many sexy text messages to someone she calls Mr. Chocolate. Peter says “damn, he must be one black mutha phucka.” 

RHOA

Apollo says she texted this new man “sweet dreams baby,” called him her “happily ever after” asked about getting spanked by daddy and told him she is looking forward to the day when she receives her emancipation proclamation papers which will free her from the plantation (palms up thank ya Jeeezus emoji). Further, when Mr. Chocolate asked, “is this really you Phadrea” Ms. Parks sends a snapshot of herself with a big grits-eating grin. Surprise! Apollo hit the roof. He also beats Team Beast to the punch of telling folks he must be lying because he lied about Kenya, etc., by showing the RECEIPTS on national television – printouts of all the text messages. Damn! somebody has been a veddy bad puddy tat. I just wish Peter kept his eyes on the road while driving instead of trying to read line by line the text messages, but he has to get the deets to accurately report back to Cynthia which he does promptly. Apollo says he never put his paws on Phaedra but he did want to choke her out and he verbally threatened her. Stay tuned.

Apollo RHOA

Peter couldn’t wait to pour another drink and tell Cynthia all the dirt at home. As he is speaking I believe Cynthia wants to burst out laughing, because I am laughing my azz off. Cynthia points out the hypocrisy of Phaedra who proclaimed Kenya was the whore of the century without any proof while, allegedly, she is cheating on her huzzzband.

Cynthia Bailey

At Twirl, Inc. Kenya is making tea and face timing with her BFF Brandon for ideals to add to her script. Roger Bobb hasn’t been much help so she is taking matters into her own hands.  They are holding auditions the next morning, so Kenya and Brandon have a lot of work to do.  Work it out gurl!  Make it happen.

Speaking of work, Claudia is shown preparing for her grind. She gets up every morning near 4:00 a.m. and has panic attacks that she will be late. She has made up her mind that she will just ignore Porsha at work.

Kenya’s auditions are going well and folks are showing up for the readings. She has written a part especially for Cynthia, as a Jamaican salon owner. Yup. Cynthia shows up in full gear and makeup and actually nails the part. I guess it helps when your boo is a home grown Jamaican. Kenya  reached out to several stars but they have conflicting schedules. Leon is on board. She also auditions D. Woods (formerly of P Diddy’s girl group and now Kandi’s play – A Mother’s Love) to play her older sister. There isn’t enough acting in this world to pull that off, Kenya, think again. 

Claudia is meeting with her boss Rickey Smiley. He tells her she is doing a great job. She wants more input on her timing because she is still a bit nervous on his radio show (although she worked on Jamie Foxx’s radio show – The Foxx Hole for 3 years and had her own show as well on Sirius). Rickey wants to squash the beef between Claudia and Porsha. He calls Porsha into the room.  Porsha isn’t thrilled with Rickey being in the middle of their spat, but she offers him gummy bears and mints. Rickey says they should form a prayer circle. After prayer, he sexually harasses them. Now, I see why his staff isn’t getting along.

Kandi returns from her trip and visits Carmen to discuss Todd’s new attitude. She complains that they are not having enough sex and they don’t communicate. She then tells Carmen she thinks he may be having an affair because after only 6 months of marriage, they should still be in the honeymoon phase. See Kandi, this is what happens when you let your mom and staff chop off your fiancée’s nuggets, place them in a blender and then laugh about it. Riley isn’t helping either. Todd is fed up and showing his azz. Kandi says if he refuses to go to counseling, then she will get a divorce. Sure Kandi. Carmen calls her out on her bullsh*t also and says she never really puts in the work behind her threats.

Phaedra is back at her home gloating to her assistant that Apollo has cracked corn and she don’t care. She is getting all the locks changed. Not so fast Phaedra. Apollo pulls up in his white BMW ranting and raving that she is trying to lock him out. 

RHOA

I’m confused and editing is all over the place as well. Phaedra says they spoke and saw each other at length the day before and he was now on the road. Apollo acts as if she was expecting him. He tells Phaedra to come outside the garage and talk with him. As much as Phaedra built a case on being frightened for her life and safety, she is mighty calm. She doesn’t break a sweat.  She doesn’t look scared – AT ALL. I thought she would actually break out the yoga mat. Whatever she is taking, I need some stat.  

Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 10.04.43 AM

She told her assistant not to call the police. Apollo blasts her about taking everything away from him, including his kids.  Phaedra says she will pray for him. Cold.  He grabs a power drill. Phaedra doesn’t flinch but says don’t come near me with that foolishness. Apollo asks if she is going to put his laundry away or do those clothes belong to another man. This is just ridiculous.  His buddy, who probably has a warrant, first calls Phaedra (while hiding in the bushes across the street), and then comes to the house to retrieve Apollo. He doesn’t want Phaedra to call the police either because of his “situation.”

Apollo RHOA

What kind of people were they hanging out with? Apollo leaves, but then yelling that Phaedra better have his things at his home when he returns from prison, 6 to 8 years later. No, the house wasn’t burned down and Phaedra’s life wasn’t threatened.  I am sure she is doing a jig behind closed doors.

Next week Todd acts “unbothered” when Kandi asks him would he marry her all over again and Mr. Chocolate is discussed at the table which sets Phaedra off big time.

    I guess now we know why on her birthday a few years back Apollo filled her pinata with condoms….kray kray

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! Absolutely.
      Great recap girl.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Thanks Mars!!!

  • RubyT

    These women are so ridiculous. I guess they really need to tear someone else down to feel better about themselves if they believe Apollo for one second. He’s a proven liar and a thief. His “evidence” is baloney. He’s very well versed in faking documents. That’s one of the reasons he’s in prison.

  • Sharon

    !) Sing me a sad song Claudia. Porsha doesn’t have to like you, and saying hello then going about her business IS being cordial you crocodile tear shedding crybaby. She doesn’t have to fake kiss you and make smalltalk. So what if she laughed at the table when you and Nene were acting like a couple of nasty trolls. Who wouldn’t? Then you attacked Porsha on the bus, showed up to HER party and confronted her again. You’re lucky she didn’t drag you around by the hair like she did your bff Kenya.
    2) Cynthia and Peter are messy. Disgusted with them both. Nene was right about Peter.
    3) Phaedra looked afraid to me when he was walking towards her with a drill running. I would have called the police on his ass if he’d tried that with me. Especially after all his threats and wall punching. And as far as the alleged Mr Chocolate….hard to believe an admitted liar even when he brings up his past lies first.

    • DSS

      Out on a limb here….. pro Nene?

      • Sharon

        Come back to the trunk a little. Didn’t I say Nene was acting like a nasty troll (along with Claudia)? Even though I think Nene is arrogant, and criticized her for calling Peter a bitch, I say she’s right now based on Peter’s activities on last night’s show. If by bitch she means manufacturing outrage, clutching pearls, gossiping, and commandeering a talking head moment just like he is actually one of the housewives.

        I am kind of pro Porsha (in her thing with Claudia) and pro Phaedra (in the Apollo situation).

  • Great recap, Ronnie! OMG!!! Shit got REAL lat night.

    Todd isn’t cheating, he’s tired of being the butt of her staff’s and family’s jokes! Maybe Kandi should try standing up for her husband. I mean there’s only so much a person can take.

    Love Claudia! Girl knows how to stick up for herself!

    Fakedra probably did cheat and probably with another felon. Remember when they were away and she said she was tired from being on the phone all night. I’m sure she did. I am sure he has too. Messy. Messy.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Doc! I co-sign on your comment. If Kandi doesn’t stand up for Todd and her marriage (which I doubt she will) she’s going to be in divorce court sooner as expected.
      I think Fake had an affair, but with who is the question.

      • RonnieIsBack

        And Nene is itching to tell it….

      • Hey Marsie! I feel bad for Todd. It’s a shame Kandi can’t see how much her family and staff has disrespected him. Poor guy.

  • Marsbars09

    Ronnie girl your recaps are the best! I just busted up when you mentioned Apollo’s friend may have a warrant out for his arrest.
    Regardless of Apollo’s dirty deeds, I feel Fake’s treatment of him during their marriage has been foul. Apollo’s anger towards Fake geared toward the passionate.
    And if Fake was afraid of Apollo how come she didn’t call the police? She knew damn well she wasn’t worried about nothing. She wanted Apollo to look as bad as possible so she could garner more sympathy for her situation, but I’m not fooled.

  • Marsbars09

    Does anyone think the clock is ticking REAL QUICK on the Tucker marriage. Todd already can’t stand being with Kandi. He flies to LA or any other city whenever he gets the chance and stays for who knows how long?
    At first I gave the marriage three years tops, now I’m not so sure….

    • Trippinhhard

      I gave it two with no damn babies involved, Kandi is nice nasty, she thinks everything should go her way..

    • CoolBreeze15

      Absolutely! I wouldn’t marry Kandi either if I was a dude! Yeah she has money but she like the rest of those ATL socialites, are country, ghetto, and classless. Todd is a New Yorker. I’m sure he has seen his share of pretty and classy women. Lol.

  • Jersey

    The way Apollo was acting on last nights episode makes me believe he did make threats when the cameras weren’t rolling. I’m definitely no Phaedra fan but I believe her. The way he was acting was kind of scary. He grabbed the drill and you can tell he was looking to destroy some stuff but controlled himself,most likely because the cameras were there.. He was supposed to be in prison that day but then acts as if she knew he would be coming home.. He even asks why wasn’t I supposed to be here? Is he serious?! I can’t with this fool.

  • TopGear

    Phaedra hides behind her mother, her children, Apollo’s dumb ass. And I believe she cheated on him too, but Apollo cheated as well (strip clubs). They are BOTH wrong.

    • Isa

      LOL thanks for copy-pasting my comment from Facebook.

  • Chloe

    Love your recap, Ronnie. Phaedra is a scam artist & has been for awhile, seeing her atrocity in court with Sheree confirmed her ineptitude as a lawyer and receiving a cash payout in the court parking lot from a defendant that was STILL in an illegal vehicle shows her willingness to bend the rules of her profession.
    She married Apollo because she was knocked up and required a cover story for her pastoral parents.
    Commonsense dictates if you are willing to dabble in illegal practices, have 2 things in the hole, a lawyer (Phaedra) & a scapegoat (Apollo). He held up his end but she dipped out on hers. He thought that she actually loved him through her clowning antics but she was lining her pockets with his illegal gains & discarded him when he became a non-motherf*cking factor in her master plan.

    • Yolie

      Oh, I believe that she is shopping around for another husband (sucker) like the other ladies shop for Birkin bags. She craves the spotlight and is looking to be an Atlanta socialite. She wants invites to all the big events & galas.

      • Chloe

        Yep not to mention lets get real here. Apollo was the “Birkin” bag for her until he ended up being the fake one. She brought this on herself. She either got knocked up and had a gunshot wedding to cover up the lies to her pastor momma or she wanted some good looking babies out of the deal. No honorable lawyer would put there “reputation” and career on the line to marry an ex con. Phaedra is ghetto period look at the company she keeps.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Then she better strart trolling another prison yard…

  • italiano bambino

    Shaydra got busted by her still husband changing the locks at the house. She didn’t look scare.
    Apollo for sure ready to say the dirty secrets on air but her kids come first.

    • Yolie

      I agree. Apollo knew nothing about unclaimed money from the state and federal government. How would he know who dead or alive. As an attorney, Phaedra has access to websites that the public cannot access. For example, Probate Courts handled the debts of the deceased, and those who died usually have money that family members are unaware exist. Phaedra is the culprit behind Apollo’s schemes. They both were stealing, but Apollo got greedy by stealing people’s money, who were alive and unaware until the company sent them a letter informing them of the unclaimed money.

  • Yolie

    Phaedra is a superficial, lying, sneaky, person. And yes, she married Apollo because she got pregnant and she needed a cover. What’s sad is that poor Apollo didn’t realize how she would throw him to the wolves(just as she did Angela Stanton, whom I believe) to protect her image.

    • CoolBreeze15

      Exactly! Phaedra has had Apollo, Chuck, Angela Stanton, Nene, Kenya, Jessica Voker, and Angela’s ex boyfriends expose Fraudulent.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.
    • Marsbars09

      LOL! T-lily, you shaded the hell out of Fake with the picture flashing “Boughetto”. That’s exactly what she is and looks like.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Thanks! Only wish I had thought of it first. LOL!
        She is so bougie, isn’t she? LMBO!

    • Marsbars09

      Ronnie is the best recapper.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I love yall!

  • Dani-K

    Great job, Ronnie! Better than the episode. Phaedra was, cold, cold, cold. And that friend of Apollo’s with the “situation.” Man oh man. But the most nerve wracking part was watching Peter drive and read at the same time.

    • Marsbars09

      LOL!

  • Trippinhhard

    Hey everybody!!! Great recap —just watched the show.. What’s with Claudia and Porsha, Porsha never started any crap with Claudia.. Girl bye something about her gets under your skin.. Um Apollo was awaiting her calling the police, she knows she can’t do that and she better have him somewhere to stay when he’s released from prison.. Sick of gate mouth Kandi, no Todd is sick of you, your mamma, and your rude ass daughter.. Why would he have sex with you, girl you have a big problem, six months in and he’s sick of your bossy ass ways with him and crying.. He can’t work and make money in ATL, so deal with it… Todd you made a big mistake, it’s always going to be her way or no way, forget having a baby and enjoy her money because her attitude stinks….

    • RonnieIsBack

      Which is why he isn’t getting her preggers…..a man never forgets how you treat his mother.

      • Trippinhhard

        You are right, especially with Ms. Sharon being so nice to Kandi and her nasty ass mamma..
        That’s one miserable family.. Run Todd Run

  • CoolBreeze15

    Great recap as always Ronnie! ☺ The show was really good last night, although they could have kept Porsha! No I don’t feel sorry for Phaedra and Apollo! She knew what she married! That situation is pure karma! Glad we saw no Moose tonight! I hope Claudia reads these birds to shreds on this upcoming reunion, especially Porsha! I’m glad Demetria will be back next week, I wish we had seen more of her than Bimbo. I’m looking forward to Kenya’s show! When Cynthia auditioned with her and Brandon that was hilarious! I was living for Peter telling Cynthia what Apollo told him! Hilarious!

    Notice how the show is more fun and lighthearted when the beasts don’t get much airtime. ☺ Speaking of Kandi, her storyline is tired. Todd is tired of Kandi and most likely was never attracted to her. I’m team Todd. Kandi is way too wrapped around Todd. Like let this dude live! You can be married without screwing 24/7. I give that marriage maybe another year.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks CB
      I was sick of seeing this trick turner as her BFF Nene calls her also.
      When she and her bugged eyed sister were picking outfits I changed the channel….#Boring
