All About the Tea_Will_NeNe_Return_to_Counseling_Real Housewives of Atlanta

This episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” continues from last week and Lineathia is leaving the building while tossing shade with “yall on some burrchit, and where is my car” as she exits. Dr. Jeff tries, much to his dismay, to get her to stay. It looks like a lemur trying to contain a charging Moose. Yep I said it. NeNe adds that he should watch his license (a threat), jumps in her car and leaves. In her talking head she says a good “CANcellor would not allow everybody to drop their garbage on her.” I say, if you bring trash then you should accept trash when it is thrown back at cha. Par for the course Linethia.

The remaining ladies are upset that NeNe fled out the kitchen when things got heated. No worries ladies, NeNe cannot run out of the reunion. Kandi couldn’t care less and thinks it is dumb that Dr. Jeff is running after NeNePorsha speaks up to say that nobody understands NeNe’s point of view, but admits that Kandi didn’t do anything wrong. Dr. Jeff returns and continues to speak with the ladies about their problems with the group. Porsha is angry that the women will not let anything go.  She aims this dig at and names Kenya. Kenya speaks up to clarify the real reason why she and Porsha don’t get along: (1) the Miss America comment which she feels Porsha did on purpose (Bravo shows footage with Porsha rolling her eyes when corrected by Kenya at the event); and (2) Porsha pulling her hair at the reunion after being called a dumb heaux. Porsha says she was provoked. Dr. Jeff says they are both having a pissing contest. Porsha then tells him she was feeling some kind of way when Claudia and Kenya ousted her affair with a married African. Kandi didn’t think that was right either. Dr. Jeff acknowledges that their attacking each other is behavior based on pathology and background.

Porsha admits she was bullied in school. Claudia admits that she was bullied and teased due to being bi-racial and Kenya suffers from being rejected by her mother.  Claudia and Kenya apologize to Porsha. Porsha accepts their apologies but offers nothing and never apologies to anyone. I am not surprised. Dr. Jeff asks Kandi about her issues with Phaedra. Kandi is irritated that everyone knows about her issues with Phaedra but Phaedra never spoke with her directly. Dr. Jeff suggests she reaches out to Phaedra one more time. Dr. Jeff then asks how they will solve the NeNe Factor. Kandi says they need to stop kissing NeNe’s ass. Kenya suggests they make a conciliation video. Kandi isn’t having it. I agree with KandiDr. Jeff encourages the ladies that even though they will continue to have conflicts due to the dynamic of the group, they need to handle them like women without all the shade throwing and hate. The session ends with Porsha, Claudia, Kenya and Cynthia making a cheesy video for NeNe about how they solved their issues and they love NeNe. Kandi rolls her eyes, calls them corny and I throw up a little.

NeNe is at home stretched out on her chaise lounge reading her Cinderella script for Brawwwwway. The butler Gregg, enters the room and she tells him of the horrible attack against her at the “cancelling” session. Gregg finds this hard to believe, so do I, but offers that maybe NeNe should see this from the ladies point of view and not just her own. NeNe has the “whatever Gregg” look and says that Kandi and Porsha should have spoken up for her during the session. I think this is where NeNe made up her mind to go back to Andy Cohen and “suggest” that Porsha turn in her peach for good. NeNe feels when she barks her apology to them after she shades them for filth they should accept it, bow down, and shaddup.

Kandi, Todd, Cynthia and Peter go on a double date to play pool. Peter asks about the counseling session. Todd says Kandi didn’t want to discuss it at home.  Kandi says the ladies basically made up but NeNe stormed out. Peter says this is foul because NeNe is the one who initiated the meeting. Kandi adds that Phaedra didn’t come to the session and she is pissed because, had she known, she would have skipped the session also. She also feels it is all shades of shiggidy that her BFF is telling everyone else she is mad with Kandi but not speaking directly to KandiTodd was surprised that even Dr. Jeff knew about their beef. Kandi says that she will always have love for Phaedra unless she hears that Phaedra said something really jacked up about her. Get ready, because this is the arsenal NeNe will use at the reunion. Watch what happens.

Phaedra is using a visit from Bishop T.D. Jakes’ daughter, Sarah,  as a means to help her through her ordeal. I say a 40+ woman asking for the advice of a woman in her 20’s is more of an act of deflection which Phaedra has mastered. We are introduced to Sarah Jakes, formerly Henson. She was married to NFL linebacker Robert Henson.  She divorced him based on alleged adultery and fearing for her safety. Sounds familiar? The difference between Sarah and Phaedra is that this young lady, who was a teen mom, seems really sincere. Phaedra says Apollo was just simply so mean to her but she can now sleep for the first time because the big bad wolf is locked up behind bars. Okay.

Kenya is meeting with her team for a table read of her pilot, “Life Twirls On.” She is stressed to the max because she is the producer, writer and director, like Tyler Perry and it is a lot of work. Cynthia is just glad to be a part of it, but cannot offer any help to calm Kenya down. All the actors arrive, they read the funny script which tosses a bit of shade at Leon’s womanizing and they all have a good laugh. I hope it is a success. 

Claudia is having additional counseling sessions with Dr. Jeff. She really wants to work on her own issues and become a better person. Dr. Jeff tells her she has done the work and he is proud of her. He suggests that she and the ladies go on a trip together to bond.  Claudia tells him of Puerto-Read-Co. He encourages her to try again. Claudia, Kenya, Demetria and Cynthia are having drinks and girl time. They discuss tea bagging and Claudia demonstrates on Cynthia who is horrified. It was a funny scene.

Cynthia and Kenya visit Kandi’s store, TAGS to spend some money and to invite her on the girl’s trip that was put together by Porsha and Claudia. I know, clutch the peals. It seems that Porsha, who admits to having her own sessions with Dr. Jeff as well, came together with Claudia as the new Ambassadors of Peace to join mend fences between Team Beauty and Team Beast. Kandi is like good luck with that, but she will go on the “free/flying first class” trip. They are going to the Philippines.  Kandi mentions that she and Phaedra still have not resolved their issues and they haven’t reached out to each other. Kenya says that is unfortunate. 

Phaedra is visiting the Kaplan Law Firm to get advice on filing for a divorce from Apollo. She admits to Ms. Kaplan that it is Apollo who asked for the divorce and she wants to know her options. Kaplan reads her prenup and says it appears to be airtight, but she should be more worried about the custody battle. She suggests that Phaedra try to score points with the judicial system and take the children to see their father. She then flat out asks Phaedra why she married a convict when she knew his background. Phaedra does a song and dance about how she hoped for the best in Apollo but he changed, or rather returned to being the criminal that she knew he always was. 

All About the Tea__Phaedra_s_Getting_a_Divorce_RHOA

Bravo does a great job of showing clips of Apollo being a loving husband and father. I say, Apollo call your lawyers and tell them to subpoena that footage for your case.  Phaedra feels that Apollo is not only leaving her, but he is leaving her with a big mess to clean up and what’s a Southern Belle to do? Kaplan suggest she lay low, let the children see their dad, and take her time filing for divorce until they can work out a custody plan. This is code talk for no matter how much you protest, unless you come up with concrete proof that Apollo is harmful to his kids, there is no way in hell you are getting sole custody. 

Next week, the ladies, minus NeNe, go to Philippines on their quest for peace. Porsha is crowned the Princess of Thotville; Phaedra and Kandi discuss their friendship and wait of it…Kenya and Phaedra hug it out. Oh my!

    I had to rewind the DVR…when Nene was leaving, her wigcap was actually glowing in the dark.

    • Yolie

      NeNe needs to stop being rude and ignorant to the Dr. that SHE picked. Threatening his license was a nasty uncalled for threat. She would have a FIT if someone else got up & left. It’s a group thing for everyone, that includes moose.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        I think it’s funny how Kenya is being called all kinds of names when Porsha is tricking for bags and cars with married men.

          BOOM! Preach Gurl, preach! Yowza!
          Hypocrite party of three, Ne-Ne, Phaedra & Porsha

      • RonnieIsBack

        Amen! She is always biting the hand that feeds her…He was her shrink and she used him and his script cards, for her wedding special to The Butler – The Second Time Around…she needs to quit. I think Bravo has had enough whcih is why they are letting their producers have at it.

  • Marsbars09

    Hi Ronnie! You had me dying at “cancelling” session. Does Nene have a speech impairment or bad grammar?
    Nene is almost twice the size as Dr. Jeff. Good lawd!
    Do you notice the counseling session went on a list smoother without Nene?

    • RonnieIsBack

      She butchers the languange almost as badly as Tre Giudice…
      yes the session went a lot smoother once the Ego Maniac had left the building, along with her wigcap.

  • Marsbars09

    That meeting between Sarah & Fake was some scripted BS. Sarah was like, “Uh huh, Uh huh” while listening to Fake’s sob story.
    I loved it when the divorce attorney asked Fake why she chose to a felon as a huzzband. Now that is the question of the century!

    • RonnieIsBack

      It sure was!

    • CNN

      Pure fakery and the meeting with her lawyer did not go as she wanted it to. That was a funny scene.

    • Yolie

      Nene…the Big jolly green giant. She annoys mevery much with her ugly self…inside and out.

  • Shelly Jones

    Ronnie you always nail it. I think we are soul mates…lol..kidding but I really enjoy reading your recaps and I hope Kenya’s pilot is a success.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Thanks Shelly!!!

  • italiano bambino

    if nene gets canned she wont be missed. Kenya and Fake hugging well that’s new

  • Jennymckitty

    Thanks for the recap, Ronnie. I’ve only watched occasionally this season. I wish they would all scale back the drama and fighting. It is ruining Atlanta for me. This franchise has changed the most. I used to enjoy follow the lives of ladies but now it has turned into a Bad Girl’s club for women over 40. And why does Nene insist on wearing these wigs from Party City. For a few more dollars she could get something that at least resembles human hair.

    • honeybunny

      I really wish they scrap the entire cast. They need legitimately lavishly wealthy women, either by career or marriage. None of these women are. They are struggling which only worsens the infighting. That’s why I like Beverly hills and ny. none of them can brag about their money over the others because they all have it

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Awesome re-cap as usual Ronnie. Thanks for the laughs on a crummy Monday!

    Oh Nay-Nay! You are claim you are such a rich bish but yet you can’t spend/splurge on some decent hair?
    Oh gurl puh-leeze! That plastic chit on your head is so hot it’s eating what little brain cells you have left.

    Seems like Ne-Ne has a case of being a little bish. In that case. I’m prescribing a heavy dose of woman the fook up!

    • CNN

      You’re so right. The only person who had been attacked on this show is Kenya, haters called Kenya crazy, witch snake, whore etc. Haters don’t want to admit that Nene wasn’t attacked she was exposed!! She doesn’t want to hear the truth about herself and she doesn’t handle the truth well. In order to resolve conflicts the truth most be told and Nene cannot handle it. She’s ghetto, immature and a bully with loud mouth. She treated Cynthia as her door mat.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Ita CNN. Nay-Nay is a big mouthed bully whose only skill is to use her size & her loudness to intimidate everyone around her. Bish needs a serious dose of ‘reality’. Especially when most of the issues these Ladies have, (& I use the term Ladies loosely! LOL), center around Ne-Ne & her hypocritical BS & her ability to be such a two-faced bish!

        • CNN

          Say that. She’s big, ugly and a bully. She intimidates with her size.

    • Chloe

      Not only does the moose have a bad personality and ugly face, she looks like a linebacker.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        I love that Ne-Ne was so distracted & preoccupied by trying to be such a bishy cuntcake to Dr. Jeff that she totally failed to notice that the entire top of that cheesy lookin’ onesie of hers was unbuttoned & she was totally exposing herself. LOL!
        Bwha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
        Hilarious!

    • equinox2009

      You always make me laugh so hard and you present the funniest film captions! Thanks for that, yes on this cold, crummy Monday

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Thanks Equi. Appreciate such kinds words. Glad I could make your Monday just a skosh brighter with a few giggles.

        • equinox2009

    • RealitytvJunkie

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Hee-hee! Thanks Doc.

    • RonnieIsBack

      LOLOLOLOL love the GIFs

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Haha! I am to please Ronnie!

  • CNN

    Nice recap, Ronnie. Thanks for keeping it real. Nene thinks she is right & all the ladies are wrong, that’s the problem. She needs to accept that she needs to fix something’s in herself as well. She was not being attacked.

  • Yolie

    Great recap Ronnie! Who does Nene Leakes think she is? Some type of royal queen who everyone must bow down to?! Lol, What a damn joke. Let’s not forget she was the one who reached out to Dr.Jeff for help and not the other way around so for her to bad talk Dr. Jeff was uncalled for and upright rude of her. She had the same exact issues with 2 former costars, Kim and Sheree? The common denominator in all of the friendship drama and complaints is NENE.

  • Chloe

    Ronnie, you nailed it. Messy Moose left because she is a loser, cry baby, and all out needing to be the center of attention. Can someone please buy moose a dictionary…it’s not “canceling” it’s counseling, just like there is an “S” in bridesmaids.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I think she must have inner ear problems from all that yelling….

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Loved Nene’s “Canceling Session.”What a dumb ass grown woman smh.

    Phaedra…Phaedra…Phaedra.. Why the devout Church going lawyer got involved with a convicted felon is the million dollar question. Put aside the pregnancy, were there no other eligible professionals for romance? Smells fishy to me. Phaedra is far from stupid and everything with her has motive.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Because no upstanding professional man wanted to deal with her. Believe that. I am shocked she couldn’ t find anyone in the church…hmmmm PK…

    • fred

      did she say canceling?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Yes Fred. She sure did & I don’t think it was her accent or a mistake because she asid it more than once. Just like bridemaid.

  • Bravo Ronnie! Spot on. What I find very fascinating is Shady Phae Phae wasn’t acting as an unhappily married woman until AFTER Apollo got arrested. She enjoyed the spoils of his illegal activities and pretended to be the doting wife all the while making sure to protect herself legally from his crimes. An EDUCATED lawyer playing victim to an UNEDUCATED criminal !!! Apollo is an ex-con and bought a million dollar mansion in Buckhead and drove luxury cars and his wife, a trained officer of the court had no clue? Yeah suuuuure!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Mwwwwwwwah!

    • RonnieIsBack

      She enjoyed his pickles too and had not one but TWO kids by the convict while rubbing it in the face of any single woman should could because they didn’t have a huzzzzzband.
      I am sooo sure she wished she had gotten that X-Large Pizza instead….#evilbish

      • Tell it! LMAO @ his pickles. Ewww. Phae also thought she would have light skin babies with “pretty hair” and that backfired too. #EpicFail LMAOOOO!!!

        • RonnieIsBack

          It shoooooole did!

      • fred

        well you don’t have a husbaaand so you don’t know how it is

    • fred

      I guess that ex con found a job

  • honeybunny

    I really liked Kandi this episode. I agreed with everything she said. That video was the most stupid idea and then when they did it look even more stupid

    • Same here! Kandi was hilarious with the shade throwing last night. A bish made me put on my shades. LOL!

      • honeybunny

        hahahahahaaaaa! it was shade worthy shade lol!!

  • honeybunny

    Phake really need to get her life. She’s just like Hehe…. she latches onto people only when she needs them then let’s them go when she doesn’t. And I can see from the next episode she’s trying to secure her allies for the reunion because obviously hehe isn’t going to be a big help.

  • 3!13

    Lmaooooo @ the butler Greg

  • 3!13

    As much as I hate to label anyone, Nene deserves every moniker she’s earned from being mean. Her behaviour is so appalling. I’m always in shock whenever I watch her. How can one person be so arrogant and mean at the same time. She’s such a horrible person.

  • Nancy Krystofik

    This gig with HW’s is Nene’s longest job, she thinks by her actions that it’s her show, and she is in charge, and deserves to be fawned over and favored by all. When she didn’t let the ladies into her dinner party because they were late, I would of been done with her then. She will never change. Not a friend to anyone, greedy, nasty women!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Exactly and she is so ungrateful…I believe Bravo will retool and revamp just to make sure it is still a success after they fire her big azz just to prove a point..look at what they are doing to NJ and NY…
      Every HW Bish is REPLACEABLE….
