Peter, who apparently has arrived – again, is getting ready to salute his excellence, I mean the excellence of Atlanta. He is glad he doesn’t have to borrow any more CotDayum money from his Cynthia. They discuss the dinner where Cynthia attempted to spill tea into Phaedra’s Southern Discomfort. Cynthia is upset about the whore-pocrasy of it all. Peter agrees, but says she still cannot publically call Phaedra a whore (probably because he doesn’t want a lawsuit.) and they should just stay out of it.

Meanwhile at Fake-A-Friendship-Function lunch Porsha and Phaedra have surf and turf while discussing the shocking allegations of last night’s dinner. #TheHorror. Phaedra just cannot believe that Cynthia, whom she really doesn’t give a phuck about, would attempt to spill all her business in public. Oh chile the nerve. In her talking head, wearing a chandelier dress that would make Sia proud, Phaedra says Cynthia is becoming a mean girl. Aww, pretty hurts huh? Porsha continues to infer that Kandi is a fake friend to Phaedra (yes plant those seeds, oh disciple of NeNe). Porsha also says that Cynthia should worry about all the people Peter continues to sleep with in Atlanta (just hateful) instead of what type of chocolate Phaedra is munching these days. After co-signing with a “tell the truth, shame the devil, gurl,” Phaedra also says Cynthia owes her an apology because who spread lies when they are simply not true – who does that? Uh YOU DO PHAEDRA. #PotPleaseSayHello2Kettle  Then they make a joke about Ebola and those who are suffering from it. Nice.

Kandi and Todd are at marriage counseling with Dr. Sherry Blake, because Porsha recommended her. #Wait4It. She asks why are they here because they should be in the honeymoon phase.  Todd drops the real tea – he is pissed, not so much about a bonnet, but the PRENUP. He feels Kandi showed her ass when it came down to the non-negotiation of it all. Todd says Kandi basically told him – no signature as is, no marriage. Kandi denies this and says that her attitude wasn’t that bad. Cue shady Bravo and their footage showing Kandi telling Todd “what? You feel you should get somma my money?” with a snarl and a side of stank. Kandi feels Todd is just being sensitive. Todd is not feeling Kandi or this marriage at all. Kandi wonders out loud if Todd is having an affair because he sure isn’t touching her bedroom Kandi these days. Todd evades the question. Kandi notices the deflection, but says nothing. In her talking head she says whatever is in the dark will come to light. Yup, just like your foul attitude. Start working on that equitable distribution honey. Dr. Sherry gives them homework, because marriage is, ya know, WORK.

At Peter’s Salute to Atlanta’s Excellence (because I don’t see any other celebrities from any other state present) Cynthia is working the red carpet while Kandi, Kenya, Demetria and Claudia arrive. Cynthia dismisses Peter because she doesn’t want him gossiping with the girls. Peter leaves and starts gossiping with Todd. Todd admits that he and Kandi were both told about Phaedra’s cheating and were shown text messages  – in color – by Apollo. Back with the ladies, Kenya decides to show Cynthia  how to get someone to spill tea on camera without really trying.  Instead of directly asking Kandi does she believe chocolate-gate, she asks if Kandi’s resistance to immediately comfort her BFF last night was because she knew the real scoop on chocolate-gate.

Kandi refuses to give up the tea, and instead retorts “no” and  that Apollo is always saying something so she just wants to stay neutral. Further in her talking head, Kandi doesn’t deny that she doesn’t believe Phaedra never cheated but, like a ride or die friend, simply says it is really none of Kenya’s business. Kandi does admit to the ladies that she is NOT feeling or believing the new friendship of Nene and Phaedra. At the dinner, Kandi gets an award from Peter for being a great business woman of Atlanta (and probably for switching sides).

NeNe in her favorite ramen noodles hair hat, is visiting psychologist, Dr. Jeff, because she is so upset there is division within the group. #NoEmmy4YouNene. Dr. Jeff listens to NeNe speaking of wanting to bring the girls together and restore friendships. She mentions the good ole days when she and Cynthia were acting like they were dating, I mean like sisters, and loving each other.  Then she switches gears and tells Dr. Jeff she isn’t looking for a friendship, just understanding and respect. Dr. Jeff tells NeNe she must also be willing to reciprocate respect. He then adds that when he comes to meet with the ladies he is calling EVERYONE out, including NeNe because this will be a neutral and fair therapy session. #MyNewHero.

Cynthia decides to call Phaedra to meet with her to discuss why she spilled all that tea about Phaedra’s unclean buttermilk in public. Cynthia is wearing burgundy and the devil, Phaedra, is wearing red. Phaedra gives Cynthia the silent treatment and tries to use a lawyer like move of shifting the burden of proof back to Cynthia to see if she will bite and beg for forgiveness. Cynthia isn’t biting. She says wasn’t being malicious when she brought up the topic at dinner but was simply trying to put it all out on the table (and on camera). Phaedra scolds Cynthia about not checking her facts. Cynthia sees Phaedra’s scolding and raises it with “none of the ladies in this circle fact-check, including you.” Boom. #SoTrue. Phaedra, defeated, gets up and walks out, but not without cursing about whooping somebody’s ass to someone in her car with extremely tinted windows whom she constantly refers to as “gurl.”  Interesting.

Kandi is at her store TAGS when Mama Joyce walks in. MJ says she doesn’t see Kandi anymore now that she is married#ToddsFault. She also asks how are Kandi and Todd getting along.  #LoadedQuestion. Kandi dodges that bullet.  Then the machine gun voice starts and Kandi is crying. I get it, the gurl is beyond stressed. Her marriage is in shambles, her friendship with Phaedra is in shambles, her play about ‘A Mother’s Love’ is in shambles and she is gaining weight.  Mama Joyce, who doesn’t have time to give her daughter a hug, simply hands over a copy of her house keys and the garage door opener. Of course, she mentions to Kandi that now that the old house that Kandi originally gave her has been repaired, she wants it back.  #SomeThingsNeverChange

NeNe is hosting a lunch with all the girls at a Mexican restaurant. She invites everyone but Kenya and Phaedra. Claudia and Demetria arrive. Kandi and Cynthia arrive shortly thereafter.  Then Porsha walks in the room looking like she borrowed something from Schenna Marie’s closet from Vanderpump Rules #HellNo. NeNe explains to them that the purpose of this meeting was to mend fences, agree to go to group therapy; and for them to listen to her talk and nobody else. Cynthia calls B.S. and so do I. Cynthia and NeNe go back and forth a bit, but then Cynthia throws in the towel because she knows she will never win in an argument with the Loud Mouth of the South NeNe. 

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-716-24

NeNe insists that she wants peace amongst the ladies (insert eye roll here) and then tells them “see, look how I fixed things with Claudia.” Claudia then tells NeNe that you said a lot of nasty things in Puerto Rico without merit, apologized, but never explained why. NeNe basically tells Claudia, “and you’re not going to get an explanation either. I said what I said, so move on!”  Speaking of moving on, Cynthia then asks why she and NeNe cannot move on. NeNe, with dead eyes, dismisses her with “we will discuss that with Dr. Jeff.” #Cold. 

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-716-22

Kandi is sick of any type of therapy and tells them she is not coming. This is when NeNe and Porsha tell her “oh you really need to come boo boo because Phaedra is not happy with you!”  Say what now? Cynthia decides to leave. Claudia and Demetria say they are leaving also. NeNe tosses out “I will get the check.” Claudia responds “you should  – remember you are a rich bish so I would expect nothing less!” I LOVE CLAUDIA. Besides, didn’t NeNe invite them to the luncheon? Porsha and NeNe work double-time on Kandi’s insecurities about how she was not a good friend to Phaedra during the luncheon. Kandi asks them did Phaedra tell them something? Of course they deny that she did, but say they had a feeling Phaedra isn’t happy with Kandi so she really should come to the therapy session. #Lies #ISmellAnotherSetUp

Next week, tear, tears, and mo tears. Plus, NeNe apparently gets her wig cap handed to her because we see her running out of the session she initiated with Dr. Jeff chasing behind her.

    Great recap Ronnie D. NeNe is a huge brat! Gonna take everybody to counseling and then walk out. She can dish it but Nene can’t take it.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks so much ! Nene gives me diarhea…when you don’t agree with her she gets loud and deflects…I hope she catches it at the therapy session…

  • chacha1

    Kenya and Apollo are nasty mean and low downs, so who’s to say that Kenya texted those ‘mr chocolate’ messages to Apollo with Vivica’s stolen CA phone

    • RonnieIsBack

      LOL tha’s reaching but I respect your opinion. However, I highly doubt it…if she would have, please believe that nasty Apollo would have exposed it…he is loyal to no one. he is the low down rat…prision bird. And his wife (Fakedra) is right with him..birds of a feather.

      • MindStretch

        It’s DEF possible to “create” spoof texts

        • chacha1

          thank you

      • chacha1

        you make a good point but kenya is a low down with fake boyfriends who steals phones and sends herself texts …. now that is what I believe LOL

    • beckywebb

      You know phaedra can show us the recepts by calling her cell provider, and since she cares so much…Shes probably trying to get the records. I dont believe this has ANYTHING to do with Kenya.

  • italiano bambino

    Nene looking to make friends only because she has to attend the reunion n alot of girls have ALOT to say about her hypocrisy

    • RonnieIsBack

      I hope they slam her..and her phucked up wigs….
      The bride of Mooseinstein next week….I cannot wait for the memes…

      • chacha1

        Mooseinstein OMG LMAO HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA

    • chacha1

      well we saw how Tyler Perry took NeNe out of his cell phone a few episodes ago that was so funny becuase she was bragging on how everyone is her friend and want her services, then she calls Tyler and its crickets HAHAHAHA , she walked out on Trump and I cannot believe she is turning down anything, the doors are shutting on her I think

    • chacha1

      Other than that wonderful Judge at her wedding it was full of WHO WHATS in attendance

  • italiano bambino

    Cynthia is very right when she called out fakedra on the fact checked department… fakedra is full of shit

  • Wendy Owen

    great recap, ronnie! i can’t always watch RHOA when it’s on bc the hubby hates all the yelling and bleeping sounds in the show. RHOBH – he watches. RHOC – he watches. RHONY – he watches.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks Wendy!
      I cannot believe all the chit that spills from Fakedra’s mouth…and making “coon” remarks…just a bish…

      • MindStretch

        You don’t think you want to edit you’re “coon” remarks post. ITS OFFENSIVE …thanks MadameHack

        • RonnieIsBack

          I KNOW IT IS OFFENSIVE..I am a black woman, which was why I was appalled when Fakedra, who is also a black woman, said it. Bravo bleeped it out. I uncover the real chit which is why I typed it (as a repeat only)…Fakedra is horrid and she is getting exposed daily. I don’t think anyone should get a pass on derrogatory racial terms not even FAKEDRA.

          • MindStretch

            Understood…I was wondering where that started…thanks chica

          • honeybunny

            It was smart of Bravo to bleep it out

          • MindStretch

            Decided to rewatch this episode; I was HACKING, CRACKING, AND ATTACKING (ethically, of course…lol)…
            @Ronnie – good recep….as a bronze person myself, yes, Phaedra said “Ace Boom C**n” TOTALLY DIFFERENT from “c**n* as in “c**ning”

  • MindStretch

    MamaJoyce is a piece of work…Wow, did she just say “house swap”?????

  • MindStretch

    AHHH HA – MamaJoyce dislikes Todd probably BC he is her “$$$$ competition”

  • MindStretch

    ***Looking side to side***

    Question-Does anyone else feel “uncomfortable and slightly awkward” while watching Kandi and Todd??? #openyoureyesKandi

    • Sunny

      I do. It’s like I can feel THEIR discomfort and awkwardness for seeing a ‘canceller’ (another Nene-ism) after only six months of wedded (un)bliss.

  • MindStretch

    Do y’all think Kandi “knows” Todd’s truth and she afraid of having egg on her face???
    Perhaps Christopher Williams and his wife were accurate in their description of Todd #opportunist

    • chacha1

      well who wouldn’t want to fall in love with someone who has money … doesn’t mean he wants the money but I sure wouldn’t marry some broke ass guy ….

  • Bad Barbie

    Didn’t watch this episode yet but I was watching WWHL and saw the preview for next week’s.

    So …

    Nene suggests therapy and walks out of the session when things are not going her way? Comedy. LMAOOOOOOOO

    • nn

      Typical!

    • Typical Nene. She doesn’t like when people call her out on her shit. She can never take criticism. She either gets defensive, deflects, or project blame onto others.

  • Marsbars09

    Ronnie, your recaps are hilarious!
    What surprised me most about this episode was the realization that Kandi knew BEFORE the dinner that there was an alleged “Mr. Chocolate”. I wonder how Kandi will explain this to Fake.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks Mars!

  • honeybunny

    OMG this was soooo funny, I read it twice! Nene has run out of filming friends so she goes to Dr. Jeff to try makeup so she can have someone to film with other than Porsha. Porsha shows up to a lunch dressed like a THOT…well I guess that’s becuase she is a THOT? Poor Kandi, she’s watched herself on tv for about 4 years now and still can’t see everyone walking over her. She’s pretty much showed her true colors over that prenup mess to Todd, and he’s adjusted to tolerate her…by spending more time in LA and cooling off things in the bedroom. Phaedra, So Todd says he and kandi have seen teh texts and Kandi says she hasn’t ….that will make for an interesting discussion at the reunion. I think Kandi has kept her and her money distant from Phaedra for, well of course, money reason lol. Cynthia was wrong for putting Phaedra on blast last week, but hell, its tv….Bravo wouldnt have it any other way. Kenya’s been brave enough to do it in the past so I guess it was time for someone else to step up. lol.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks! we try to write the truth but with a funny snark to it for easy in take bc all of these shows are full of bullchit. LOL

  • Sunny

    Great blog! When Nene can’t loom over someone and talk over them, then inevitably she wants to walk/clomp away. To say that she is unreasonable is an understatement, but in a Queen’s mind, her subjects should be nothing less than boot licking loyal. Too bad Nene is no Queen (and clearly no longer the Head Bitch in Charge) and her ‘subjects’ have defected, leaving her to clomp her way out the door once again. Bye Wig, indeed 🙂

    • chacha1

      CLOMP LMAO

    • Cyber_Me

      LOL, luv it!

  • Yolie

    Love your recaps, Ronnie. You speak the truth. Everybody keeps commenting on Cynthia’s over reach and how ridiculous she looks but can we talk about Porsha? Porsha peppers her sentences with so many ‘uh huhhh’s and ‘boo booo’s in what I can only assume is an attempt to sound sassy but it only serves to highlight her already painfully obvious stupidity.

    • chacha1

      Porsha still the conductor on the Underground Railroad?

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks you and yasssss! I cannot stand dumb azz Poooorsha…she is always searching for words…Speak and Spell ran out of phrases for her.

      • beckywebb

        2 snaps (1,2).

  • cait

    Someone help me out here ! I thought, as a child, that coon was a term for cotton ! There was a ballad we used sing at school ” Oh my babby, my curly headed babby, Your daddy’s in the cotton fields, working for the coon” I hope you don’t mind me asking ?

    • chacha1

      I also heard that, wasnt coon white people or were we always honkeys LOL … (BTW Honkey doesn’t offend me nor does Wop because I am Italian ….. I am too light hearted in real life to take that shit and think it is all about me…… I laugh

      • cait

        So we agree that it was never meant as a derogatory term against Black people ! Over here, in the 60’s/70’s, Honkey was the term thrown around, but in an amusing way ! Then the Political Correctness Brigade got on their soap box, and told us what we could and couldn’t say, it caused more problems than it solved !

        • chacha1

          I do not think it was a derogatory remark and Bravo would edit that racism out of the show but who knows with Bravo, I hate racism and I do laugh at Honkey …. wth does that mean Honkey LOL and I totally agree that the Brigade did cause more porblems 🙂

          • MindStretch

            #exactly you’re a cool chick chacha

      • MindStretch

        As a bronze person myself, yes, Phaedra said “Ace Boom C**n” TOTALLY DIFFERENT from “c**n* as in “c**ning”

    • Cyber_Me

      What’s that got to do with the topic at hand, RHOA???

  • chacha1

    Doors must be slamming in NeNe’s face all over the place, I find it very hard to believe she would turn down the Broadway play ‘Chicago’

    • RonnieIsBack

      She didn’t..they never offered it to her…

  • Awesome recap, Ronnie!!
    Cynthia, Claudia and Kenya are entertaining. We always see them having fun, joking and laughing about everything. On the other hand, Phaedra, Porsha and Nene are insecure bishes! Miserable, jealous,bitter hateful beasts!!!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hugs!

  • Chloe

    Thanks for another great recap, Ronnie D. Cynthia has grown on me. I wasn’t sure if I liked her this season but I loved the little exchange with Nene at the table. And I like Peter too. Phaedra paid for her husband, Porsha was a beard to Kordell but he left her with nothing, Nene stole Greg from his wife and kids sliding up and down his pole. Lol. I choose Team Pretty!

  • CoolBreeze15

    Great recap Ronnie! Team pretty! I’m just looking forward to this reunion! I think Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia, and Demetria are going to nail this reunion! One thing I’m tired of is folks dogging Cynthia and wanting her to get back in good with that moose! People should let that go b/c Nene is too far gone!

  • Cyber_Me

    They all make some of the dumbest ugliest funny faces LOL!!! Yeah, the episodes just get wilder and wilder every week! And funnier lol. I just wish that they all would stop allowing themselves to be bullied by the witch Nene. Her setting up that therapy meeting for them next week was all for drama and ratings sake, and to try to make herself appear to be the rational wise one, pfft, yeah right! Yet she walks out of the meeting when it got too hot in the for her according to the previews lol! She can’t stand it or take it when the others tell the truth about her so she leaves lol.

  • CNN

    So Demetria is there for no reason? Basically, the unmatched sock we forgot to throw away?

  • Jane Doe

    Team pretty is wack. I don’t know why everyone choosing this group of women when they’re just as manipulative. Cynthia is messy and a flip flopper. Kenya plays the victim when she creates hey own circumstances. Claudia doesn’t have much to offer. Demetria seems okay but she didn’t have enough air time for me to really see.
    I’m not too crazy of loud mouth Nene, shady Phadra, and fake Porsha but if we’re going to call people out, let’s call everyone out

    • chacha1

      Kandi gets on my last nerve and she is a mean and nasty woman while she smiles thru clenched teeth. I am watching Empire right now …. now that is talent

  • beckywebb

    That was the best rhoa review I ever read. Im used to another unfriendly site.
