Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: “From Zen to Sin” [Episode 20]

I am a grown woman with a job and I am telling you, now, if Bravo paid me to carry the housewives bags on these fabulous getaways, I’m there. I don’t know if the “Thrilla in Manila” reference from last week was supposed to be Bravo’s way of signaling that “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” would be ripping each other’s hair out and throwing down New Jersey style (see Puanta Canta) OR if Bravo simply got the best deal from a travel agent who could put the women up in the nicest accommodations possible for the least about of money and they landed in Manila.  Whatever the case, the effect was magic. The adult women of RHOA made me proud, for once. Our happy wives are out the McDonald’s lobby and have arrived at their beautiful hotel.  The lobby is so gorgeous you can’t help but wonder what the rooms are like.  They are greeted by hotel staff who cover them with beautiful white leis… yes, and the requisite jokes about not having been “laid” in a while are made.  The scene is gorgeous and colorful, so I forgive the obvious pun.

They each have their own rooms, but are shown to a common space, the Presidential suite where they learn they will have a private staff member who will attend to their every need.  Cynthia jokingly (#notajoke) introduces poor Dante to Kenya.  She will be his biggest challenge, Cynthia warns.  She is high maintenance and requires a lot of attention. Kenya laughs acknowledging that she does have needs. I love the interplay between the friends and even appreciate how all of the women are able to laugh and joke, with little problem. While the women are enjoying being in the lap of luxury, the missing housewife, Nene, is back in NYC being fitted for her costume. I will say this, the color is lush and the costume is as beautiful as you would expect it to be.  Speaking of high need, Nene also needs a pep talk and lots of support.  I’m glad she’s getting it in NYC, because we’re headed back to Manila, where the real fun is.

The women are loading onto a bus to go sight-seeing. Either they are all on time or they are so patient with one another that no one cares is anyone is later. Some of you think the upcoming Kenya-Phaedra scenes are the “Easter miracle.” Nuh uh, this is it for me.  Every time these women have traveled together, the fight breaks out on the bus, first.  I feel for the poor bus driver since Porsha and Demetria decide to hold a twerk-off. Kenya is betting that no one can out-twerk Demetria. Porsha takes that challenge.  She begins her twerk by doing something that is a cross between her “stanky leg” and what looks like hopscotch – leading the other women to laugh hysterically (in fun, not at her).  Kandi decides that it’s a tie because Demetria is the better dancer, but Porsha has more junk in the trunk – ok, I think I’ve seen that judging category used on “So You Think You Can Dance”.  HA!  In a talking head interview (TH), Phaedra says that she doesn’t know a woman with as much junk in the trunk as she has that can’t twerk, but she would rather do something smart. Next the poncho-clad women ride donkeys up to a volcano top and the scenery is breath-taking. They are captivated by the view and how lucky they are there.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-06

Porsha, dubbed the “Princess of Thotlandia” by Phaedra, strikes her best pose in an outfit that some of you have deemed the “Destiny’s Child Survivor video reject look”.   The women are all invited to follow the tradition and hit golf balls into the crater’s lake.  I don’t know if Kenya plays golf, regularly, but she has a mean swing.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-10

Kandi is afraid of making a fool of herself but instead does a great job.  They must not realize that they are actually cheering each other on.  Luckily, no one points it out and the good times keep rolling.  I’m going to just come out and say it. If THIS Porsha had avoided Nene and Phaedra last season and at the reunion, I think she would still have her peach. Notice, the petty shade was when Kandi, Phaedra, and Porsha said that Kenya looked lopsided when she got on her “horse,” and then referred to her lopsided backside. Each “side” had temporary moments of shade and then dropped them and became adult women, again.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-07

In each HW franchise, my LEAST favorite moments are when the wives go shopping in the local markets, which is what they do next.  We see them ooh and ahh at the “exotic” market items.  They play around with the foods they’re not use to seeing, and then snap pictures holding the items before leaving, no difference in Manilla. Kenya does find a local resident who twirls with her in the streets. Back at the Presidential suite, the big moment is getting ready to happen. They order enough food for poor Dante to have to hire donkeys to help him bring it all back.  (Truthfully?  Thank you, ladies, I’m sick of seeing women on these shows treat food like it is the enemy. The RHOA eat well and enjoy life.)

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-13

All but Kenya and Phaedra are in the suite and the Claudia tells everyone that tonight is the night that the two women are coming together for their big talk. Kandi assures everyone that there will be no apology, something that bothers Cynthia and Claudia, even without them saying so. The women decide to act out the meeting as they think it is likely to happen and Porsha, as Kenya, and Kandi, as Phaedra, take on their roles with gusto! They actually do a good job mimicking the two women. The name-calling and responses come up and Kandi-as-Phaedra storms off before the conversation is over. The entire room erupts in laughter.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-14

Luckily, what actually happens is not even close to what took place during the Bravo Masterpiece Theater. Kenya starts by thanking Phaedra for meeting with her and by telling her that she will hold her peace and hear Phaedra out. Phaedra admits to Kenya that she knows that Kenya tried to resolve things with her long ago and kept asking for an individual meeting. Phaedra just wasn’t in a place to hear Kenya out. Kenya explains to Phaedra that while she was being refused a meeting, hearing those awful lies and knowing that they were repeated over and over again made her feel as if Phaedra was intentionally out to destroy her. She cries and tells Phaedra she would never hurt her like that. (There of clips of Phaedra’s lowest blows.)

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-18

Phaedra wants Kenya to understand that Apollo was her husband and that she felt like she had no choice but to roll with him.  She trusted and believed in him. She has also cried, telling Kenya she can’t help how she has been feeling. Here is where the breakdown in wanting to believe Phaedra happens for me. Kenya outlines what is the obvious lie Apollo told. She tells Phaedra she has NEVER seen Apollo in L.A.. She tells her that she has NEVER attempted to meet with him any other time. She has NEVER tried anything with him. She tells Phaedra if she still can’t say she believes her, she is still calling her “that word” without using it. Phaedra wants us to believe that she has been the victim of a cruel hurtful man who conned her and lied to her, but won’t admit that he lied about Kenya.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-19

Kenya is willing to take the apology Phaedra has given her, for the first time ever – the apology Kandi said would never happen. The two women pray together, and Phaedra invites Kenya to church with her. Kenya accepts. They hug it out while still crying and it feels cathartic. The two women have been “mortal enemies” for too long – over one man’s lie and it feels good to not only see them walk into the suite together, but to sit next to each other, leading the other women to cheer them on!

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-20

We find out, as the episode concludes and Demetria and Claudia, who is wearing sunglasses indoors, stop by Porsha’s room. They are all on the way to breakfast and then the airport. We see clips of them dancing and having a roaring good time the night before. At breakfast Claudia asks if anyone has spoken to NenePorsha tells them she has and says that she thinks that Nene would have gone with the program and made up with everyone if she was there. Kandi laughs, then Kenya and the rest of the group. Porsha is awarded the “Best Actress” Oscar by the wives. They end the trip taking several lovely last pictures together in Manila.

All About the Tea_real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-7-720-01

Earlier Cynthia noted that they were all getting along and mending old wounds… and WHO wasn’t there?  Point taken, Ms. Bailey, point taken!  Dr. Jeff deserves a lot of credit because these women took his advice seriously, and even commented on how proud of them he would have been (er, minus Claudia’s hangover, that is.)

Well done, ladies!

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    No Nene? NO problems! I hope Bravo learns that lesson.

    • mblack25

      Be Nene = no paycheck 4 Claudia, Cynthia, or Kenya. Dumb ass!

      • Brattus Rattus

        Be Nene doesn’t even make sense. So don’t try to check people about spelling and grammar if 4 is used instead of “for”.

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    I enjoyed this moose free trip, looks like they did too. I also refuse to believe that Nene knows what an active verb is? I had zero interest in seeing her in Cinderella, but did anyone else? Would love to hear a real review. Nene is a horrible actress, so I’m assuming she tanked?

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Ne-Ne joined the cast in the final month of production. The show opened in Mar. 2013 & was slated to close in Jan. 2015. My guess? They did that for a reason. She also replaced Sherri Shepard so ’nuff said. LMBO!

    • Bad Barbie

      Not sure if it was on this site or RT that one of the members saw it and gave it glowing reviews. She was also the typical Nene stan… She was on it for like 5 weeks. The best part was that she said that Kim K and North West were attending because he was friends with Kim. The KSkank never attended. I believe the Gorgas and Jill Zarin were the ones that attended and most likely because they got comp’ed by Bravo.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      The women are getting their respect back. Only when they speak one-on-one. Kandi is toxic. Kenya humbled herself and apologized. When they are trying to resolve in the group,the other friends are too opinionated to hearsay. The change starts with the person in the mirror. Wishing all the women the best.

    • mblack25

      By u can’t keep Nene off your mine. U may need to ask yourself why? She’s the star even when she’s not even there. Wow!

      • Brattus Rattus

        *Mind
        Not mine

        • mblack25

          Wow I owe you an apology rather you accept it or not. I apologize I really didn’t know about your cancer. I was just having fun and I deserve everything you dish out. I lost my mom to cancer in 96 and I just wish I can give you a hug. I’m so so sorry. Damn me I hate myself right now! I’m never making a comment again because you never know what someone is going through. I’m tearing up bad right now so if you want to tear into me I’ll take it.

          • twifan2

            You never know what burden(s) a person is carrying, mblack25.
            At least you apologized. 🙂

          • mblack25

            Thanks!

          • Brattus Rattus

            I replied to her above. I couldn’t find this earlier. It was awesome for her to post and share. We’re straight. 😉

      • fred

        2and2before?

        • twifan2

          π- Pi are round?
          No, Pi r square.
          🙂

      • Brattus Rattus

        I read your post on my email but now it’s gone. I’m really sorry about your mom. I wasn’t ignoring you – I was in a meeting. Don’t trip girl. We all say things that we wish we could take back when we don’t know the whole story. It’s all good. Come back and post but know that I’m no one’s mom or grandma… I’m too fierce. LOL j/k Don’t stay gone though…we even love Nene fans. It’s the Brandi one’s that…Ummmm well, not so much. Oh they don’t really care for the Teresa one’s either – Like at all. LOL Cancer is a bitch though.

        • mblack25

          Thanks so much! I will keep you in my prayers. Yes Cancer is a true bitch!

  • Bad Barbie

    True. The one time that Nene is not there… the only time they all get along. Did the viewers even miss her? Bravo should get rid of her already. All she brings is negativity and pure hate towards the others that are not her minions.

    Glad they gave her and Kim a show so people can see how nasty she is all alone… Her wedding special tanked in numbers…

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Best episode! No fights, no screaming over each other, no division!
      #NoNene!

    • mblack25

      U still can’t keep Nene out your mouth. She’s the star even when she’s not there. So girl bye!

      • Brattus Rattus

        And it’s “You” not U.

  • honeybunny

    I was glad to hear it was a drama free trip and that several differences were resolved. I heard even Phake and Cynthia managed to be cordial throughout the trip. Thats setting an exampple for adult women. Let’s hope its rea. I have my suspisions about Phake. I think she’s doing this to mend her image, with the Feds still looking over her shoulder and Angela Stanton at her doorstep. I guess she worked out something with Bravo (similar to the guidices) to helpe repair her image the best she could before she goes before the judge on April 20

  • Chloe

    Great recap, Norrth. Phaedra is such a phony. She claims the tour guide woman told her blah blah blah, but why did she ask the tour guide to tell her blah blah blah. If the woman didn’t speak English she didn’t tell Phaedra nothing. Lying Fakedra.

  • italiano bambino

    Was a good episode glad moose didn’t go. Wasn’t missed. Ps glad claudia doesn’t back down on nene next week looks good

    • mblack25

      Girl bye! Claudia is trying to hard it’s pathetic. If they all get alone what’s their storyline. Oh yeah that’s where Nene comes in. Nene wins again by showing she is the star. everyone always go after the one who place they want to take.

      • italiano bambino

        LOL last time i check nene didn’t want to hear it due to been call out on her shit. so nene is far from winning

        • mblack25

          It’s being called out not been call out. Check your grammar and spelling b4 trying to check someone. Getting another spinoff which is more than I can say about the other girls is definitely winning. So girl bye!!!!

          • Brattus Rattus

            Well, if you’re going there – it’s “before” not b4.

          • mblack25

            shut up grandma and get hipped. U should have kids 20 or older hell based on your photo 30 or older to know the short terms. So Girl bye! Oops my bad grandma bye!

          • Brattus Rattus

            I know all the shit so don’t get it twisted. You want to correct people, check your own busted comments. And I’ll take 30 or older on my photo. At least I’m woman enough to post my picture and grown enough to know when young uneducated thots are posting. You know, like you.

          • mblack25

            Go take your medicine grandma b4 u have a heart attack. I done got poor grandma all worked up. LMAO!!! I’m so bad!! HAHAHA!!!!

          • fred

            2AND2 BEFORE

      • fred

        YOU AND NENE ARE BOTH HUGE LOSERS!!!!!!!!

  • Jennymckitty

    I love it when everyone gets along. Wonder if this is Nene’s last year. You can tell she hates doing this show. You can feel how miserable she is in every scene. It isn’t enjoyable to watch someone that unhappy. There are people doing court ordered community service happier with their job.

    • Yolie

      Right, agreed. I understand that without all of the drama, the show wouldn’t have as much hype but I’d rather see less madness and more of a union between them all.

    • twifan2

      I was pleasantly surprised that whatever shade they threw at each other was ‘fun’ shade. Like teasing instead of demeaning someone. 🙂

    • undergroundrailroadtrain

      I think so since she has a new show with Kim Bierman now

  • Yolie

    I really enjoyed tonight’s episode. The trip was so much better without Nene. I’m here for the drama but I also think they are just as entertaining when they actually get along.

    • Norrth

      They really behaved like RealHWs in other franchises. No knock down drag outs.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Great re-cap Norrth. Totally spot-on! Thanks.

    What a great time had by all, when the Moose is GONE & no where to be seen!
    That was such a fun trip. So glad to see them actually enjoy all the spectacular things these awesome adventures have to offer. I mean heck if these women can’t appreciate that they are being offered such a amazing experience that few of us will ever get to indulge in, then they should keep their nasty butts home & let one of us go. & by us I mean ME! LMBO!

    I think that is the first trip in the history of HW’s where it actually DIDN’T almost come to blows. Where someone didn’t try to assault someone else.
    How refreshing. That was a beautiful location. That spa was heavenly.

    & when the costume designer told Ne-Ne to TWIRL?!
    BOOM! I nearly spit iced tea ll over the floor.
    Bwha-ha-ha-ha! That was hilarious.

    O/T for a sec.Sending love, hugs, healing vibes, thoughts & prayers to my girl Ronnie, her Mom & family. Thinking of you all.
    & sending some hugs, love & kisses to my girls, Nan, KJ, Alex, NAWS, Cait, Brattus & HarleyGirl. Hope all is well. Miss you Ladies!

    MWAH!
    XOXOXOX

    • Chloe

      Spot on. Personally, I am happy to see the women getting along. At the end of the day we as women need to support and encourage each other. It’s hard to be so much to so many, without a support system.

    • Jennymckitty

      You’re right. This is the only HW vacation where people enjoyed themselves. How sad.

      Prayers for everyone. Love the AATT family.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Hi Jenny. I so agree. I actually really enjoyed seeing everyone at least make the attempt at working out their issues & then just relaxing & having fun together.
        I hope Bravo takes the hint that we are all tired of seeing the cat fights, the nasty name-calling & drunken antics.
        Doubt it, but maybe once in a while they can consider it? LOL!

        • Jennymckitty

          I hate when people label these types of episodes as boring.

      • Norrth

        Even when they teased each other using comments that would otherwise have been insults, they laughed and smiled.

    • Norrth

      I realize the show needs drama but Nene brings things ALL the way down. She comes into almost every scene with a sour disposition. Even at parties. Shouldn’t she be enjoying life more?

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        You’d think so considering she supposed to be such a rich
        bish!! LOL!
        I agree Norrth. Ne-Ne shows up in a pissy mood, before anything is even said, she’s defensive & snappish. Seems to me that maybe life is not the perfect picture Ne-Ne wishes we’d all believe it is, if she’s so dang angry all the time.

            I originally had turned the TV on for the 12 o’clock news. I went back to working on the computer, wasn’t really watching. It was basically backgroung noise & I happened to glance up & saw Heather & Terry.

            I thought I was done early today, but of course he just called me & asked me to do something else. UGH! I hate that chit!

            Ohhhhhhh. Never seen it or heard of it. PBS has a series? Or better yet, PBS still exists?

    Does anyone think that MAYBE Bravo saw that viewers enjoyed watching this episode without the cat fights, drama? That MAYBE Bravo will do something now! As in ‘remove’ Nay Nay, then Brandi?! 🙂

  • CoolBreeze15

    Great recap! Phaedra is still trash but it was good to see her FINALLY apologize to Kenya! I enjoyed last night’s episode, I think it was one of the best of the whole season! Porsha is a true THOT and tacky, and Nene’s scenes were forgettable. Her son is getting HUGE too, he surely looks like Nene and Greg! #teampretty looked GORGEOUS, all four girls, Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia, and Demetria! Twerking is really ratchet but Demetria can TWERK! LOL!

    • Norrth

      Princess of Thotlandia? Porsha’s friends really know how to label her! She never gets mad at Nene or Phaedra for the slights, either.

      How much better would things have been if Phaedra had apologized much sooner? For two years she labeled Kenya that ugly word and I thought it would take at least 2 more for an apology.

      • CoolBreeze15

        I agree Porsha is BLIND to the shade her “friends” constantly throw at her! Dumb thot! Phaedra’s karma is coming, stay tuned!

  • CoolBreeze15

    But I think Nene is the ONLY problem with this show. Phaedra and Porsha are just as bad in my opinion! Phaedra is just trying to clean up her image and play the victim, it was probably producer driven! I guarantee you outside of RHOA, Phaedra would have NEVER apologized to any of them.

    • Norrth

      I think she’s trying to clean up her image, too. Being Apollo’s partner in tormenting Kenya might lead others to ask if she was his partner in other ways.

      • CoolBreeze15

        Hmmm, good thought!

      • You’re right – that’s a good way to distance herself. But it did seem somewhat genuine.

      • Exactly! But unfortunately for her, it’s not working. Her “good name” has been tarnished, since Jessica Voker.

    • Hey CB! 🙂

      I’m glad all the women are finally getting along now (minus NeNe). In the previews for next wee, NeNe is pissed because she wasn’t there to orchestrate drama or persuade anyone to keep the foolishness going to make her relevant. She actually threatens Claudia but Claudia doesn’t back down. Should be good!!

  • CoolBreeze15

    Kandi can go too but for some reason Bravo keeps her on. If her and Todd are planning to have a baby I don’t mind that storyline for next season though.

  • CoolBreeze15

    If you’re a team pretty fan, here’s a good review!

  • Brattus Rattus

    Great recap Norrth. Even though I don’t watch the show, I remember the characters. I could see this all playing out just life you wrote. Wonderful with your words.
    Damn I’ve been sick lately. I saw a few of you wish me a Happy Easter. Thank you all so much. I slept thru it. I looks like that skeeve that wished me dead on the site the other day might be getting their wish sooner than later. Gah I feel miserable. I did tell them that it’s too bad their mom didn’t swallow though. Then I went back to bed. Good times. LOL
    Have a great day and gossip later.

      Brattus, hope that you will be feeling better soon!

      • Brattus Rattus

        Thank you. Cancer is a bitch. I’m going to start letting certain people know that on my death bed I’m going to wish evil things on them and they can wait for the karma to come around. People want to put out their crap but don’t want to take it. It’s all good though. I can be all kinds of names and stuff but when it comes down to it, I can also be a vindictive woman or the sweetest person you ever met.

            My niece already claimed them. You can fight her for them though. She’s tiny. You might can take her… LOL

        • twifan2

          Take care of yourself!

        • Hang in there, Brattus. xoxo

    • Hope you woke up feeling better!!!

      • Brattus Rattus

        I slept 12 hours woke up for five (napping in those five hours) and slept for 11 more. All so I could go to work. Gah. But I did get my request for reasonable accommodations approved today! two days a week I can work from home until I get medically retired. Wooo hooo! Thank you for your thoughts.

        • That’s awesome news!! So happy for you, Brattus***BIG HUGS*** Hang in there. xoxo

            Howdy Doc! Happy Monday. Hope you & the Seuss Fambly had a lovely holiday & weekend.

          • Hey doll! Happy Monday. I need one more day of the holiday besides that it was nice. Hope you and the family had a blessed day.

        • twifan2

      Hi’ya B! Sending big hugs to you Girl!

  • Fun to read your recap! It was nice to see the ladies behaving amicably and sharing a few laughs.

    • Norrth

      I have missed that so much on this franchise. There used to be so many laughs.

      • I think Bravo feels viewers won’t watch without drama which is not true. Last night was the best episode of the season.

    • Ditto!!

  • pixntrix

    Thx for the great recap…it was the best episode I have seen of a RH show in a long time. I’m still lol’ing at the comments made to Porsha about the Princess of Thotland. And someone please tell her to wax I don’t want to hear anymore comments about pubic hair sticking out of someone’s shorts…gawd that’s disgusting

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Hi Pix. EWWWWW! That was definitely a cringe worthy moment for sure! UGH! *Shudders!* At least trim that bush! LOL!

      • pixntrix

        Roflmao…and I snorted!

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

          ROTFLMAO @ I snorted! My job here is done. (´ー`)/

          • twifan2

            It’s not done yet, T!
            She has to snort soda out her nose! THAT’S a job well done! 🙂

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

            (¬‿¬) Fingers crossed!

      • twifan2

        You sick T! 😀
        That clip never gets old! 🙂

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

          Hee-hee! ⊙.☉

    • Norrth

      yes it is!!!

      • pixntrix

        Norrth look at the post and flix from Tiger lily you’ll die laughing

    • Ewwwww!!!!

  • Awesome recap, Norrth! Nene telling that costume designer to “spin” instead of “twirl” was the most self-deluded thing I have ever heard. The poor man standing there looking at her, like, “What the hell are you talking about?” was hysterical. And you could totally tell she hated the costumes. Porsha looked like Pocahontas grown up to be a stripper. No, Porsha. Just, no.

    • Norrth

      She never knows when to stop, does she? LOL, she’s a legend in her own mind! I do think it’s funny that Nene acts as if she was the first choice in the role and was only hired to close out the last month. Next she’ll be screaming about her “Cinderella checks”.

  • Tami

    @Norrth I believe it was Porsha not Claudia role playing as Kenya. Great recap!

    • Norrth

      Thank you for the correction! I deleted the show from my DVR but believe you are 100 percent correct.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    I just can’t get through a full episode…..I can’t say there is one HW I like….I will tune into the reunion with my remote in hand

  • say_no_go

    Does Nene have hair under that toupee?
