‘RHOA’ Recap: Matt Jordan Threatens Kenya Moore & Punches Driver

Posted on Jan 9 2017 - 12:04am by Dani-K

We join The Real Housewives of Atlanta at the doggy-center with Kenya and Cynthia and a very nervous King. Kenya updates Cynthia that she and Matt are taking a break from their dating life to work on themselves. Then she informs Cynthia that Peter has asked her to host the opening of his new club in Charlotte. Kenya invites Cynthia to Peter’s party even though Peter didn’t invite her to his party.

Cut to Peter shopping for a Mercedes now that he’s single. In walks Todd who tells Peter to chill with the flashy stuff during the divorce. Peter doesn’t care that he can’t afford the $159,000 car, it makes for good TV to see Peter drive around in a convertible. Peter tells Todd he’s invited to the grand opening of Club One this weekend in Charlotte and will be hanging with Kenya and Matt, or will he?

Todd is now home with Kandi asking for her opinion on which of the three suits he should wear to Peter’s party. Kandi tells him the one with the bowtie looks like he’s going to sell bean pies with Phaedra’s fav group Nation of Islam. Kandi is just jealous that she can’t go to Peter’s party because somebody in that house has to earn a living. This weekend is all about the Bedroom Kandi convention since the OLG restaurant is draining them blind. But more trouble is on the horizon, y’all. An ex-employee named Johnnie is calling Kandi fake on social media. Sure, Kandi fired his ass, but he couldn’t handle the job – and Kandi is a job – but she’s tired of people (Porsha and Sheree) checking her inventory when they haven’t checked their own.

Up next is Porsha who is packing up her house and moving back home with mom. The story goes that Porsha wants a bigger house even though it’s just her right now. Tick, tock, tick, tock, go the sounds in Porsha’s head. She is ready to start popping out dem babies.

So, check this. Did you know Sheree wrote a book? Maybe that’s why Chateau Sheree is taking so long. For two years Sheree has been quietly penning a tell-all work of fiction called Wives, Fiancés, and Side-Chicks of Hotlanta. Just rolls off the tongue, right? Sheree is the main character in the book named Sasha with a side-kick named, Paris, who leads a “questionable nightlife” loosely based on NeNe Leakes. Order your copy now.

Over at the Bedroom Kandi convention, great news for same sex female partners. Kandi now has a gadget to pleasure both women at the same time even. Kandi acts like this is new to her and she didn’t order and design this thing herself. As Kandi does a final check with her team, in walks Johnnie. Kandi confronts him. Johnnie says he was feeling a certain kind of way because he was let go by Don Juan and wasn’t given a final conversation with Kandi. Kandi lets Johnnie have it, and though Don Juan tries to shut it down, Kandi just rolls over him and continues with the tongue lashing. Kandi says you can call her a bitch or an asshole, just don’t call her fake – or late to dinner.

It’s late at night and Porsha is sneaking her old/new boyfriend Todd into her mama’s house just like she did ten years ago. Shh. Don’t talk so loud. Whisper like you two are in a sexy library. Let’s face it, Porsha needs to work on her game. She breaks out the yoni egg and Todd is wondering if they’re having an omelet. Porsha then burns sage to remove the dust from her vajayjay. And if all else fails, why not pull out a can of whipped cream and fall off the bed. The born again virgin tells Todd she loves him.

Over at the gym, Sheree and Bob are working out together. Bob has to lose weight in order for Sheree to sleep with him, but he only wants to pop a few pills and drink a few health shakes to lose the weight. Since they are only getting hurt in the workout, Sheree takes a call from her editor asking if she’s made the final changes to the manuscript. No, of course she hasn’t. Sheree takes this opportunity to tell Bob about the book. Bob is only mildly concerned. Flashbacks of Sheree’s failed fashion career are shown.

Next we visit Phaedra who has a surprise visitor named Johnnie. Phae-Phae is salivating surprised to learn that Johnnie is there to discuss suing Kandi. Oh, please! Johnnie tells Phaedra before he was terminated, he wasn’t properly compensated for everything he did. And he just now remembered this? Phaedra tells Johnnie that slavery has been abolished, praise the Lord, but she doesn’t handle this area of law. Phaedra isn’t one to turn down coin, but obviously she doesn’t want that wrath of Mama Joyce coming down on her.

It’s one hour til Peter’s party and he has no idea Cynthia is coming. While Kenya and Cynthia are at the hotel getting ready, Kenya starts receiving angry text messages from Matt. According to her, Matt is having one of his “episodes” over being cut from the guest list and his free plane ticket cancelled. Kenya reads the threatening messages to Cynthia, freaking Cynthia out, and we learn Matt is driving to Charlotte. Cynthia asks Kenya if she’s afraid to go to Peter’s party and Kenya says her gut is telling her not to go to Peter’s party.

Peter’s party is hopping! Todd is there and in awe of the completed construction project. In walks Cynthia in her cream glory to break the news to Peter that Kenya is having issues. They go outside to talk alone, in front of the Club One sign. First Cynthia tells Peter he should have invited her to his party. Then she tells Peter about the “you’ll regret this” crazy text messages coming from Matt. Peter says he hasn’t seen Matt, and now doesn’t want to. Back inside, Peter and Cynthia argue over his appearance on the Wendy Williams show and how it was all Cynthia’s fault.

Kenya pulls up to the club just as Matt arrives. What are the odds? Matt walks up to Kenya’s car and Kenya tells the driver not to let him in the car. Next thing we hear, someone gets slapped. Turns out Matt “slapped” the driver’s “bitch face” for closing his neck in the window. Matt then jumps in his car and peels out of the parking lot. Everyone agrees, there is something wrong with that boy. Matt calls Peter and Peter explains they can’t chill now because Matt is cray. Matt claims he’s under the influence of Kenya’s manipulation. Meanwhile, Peter wants Cynthia to go back to his place which is conveniently three minutes away. Cynthia turns down Peter’s offer. Awkward!

Tune in next week when Matt gets more crazy, Cynthia and Kenya become homeless, Phaedra hosts a self-serving event “for the kids’ and Marlo makes an appearance.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Kenya needs to twirl her ass back into the gym (stress eating apparently goes to her legs). I didn’t even recognize her in those scenes at the doggie groomer.

  • Ronnie

    Kenya tries so hard to paint Matt as the only crazy in their realtionship. Of course he does seem crazy, but she has been crazy from day 1. Every arena she has been in, they always end up describing her has evil and crazy. She tries to make it seems that she is this innocent put upon person that Matt is obsessed with, when in reality, she is probably hell on earth to deal with…in every way. She is old enough to be Matt’s mother. Why not be the mature one and end the nonsense? No, she needs a storyline.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      As if she couldn’t text Matt & tell him that his ticket was cancelled. She purposely let him get all the way to the airport before he found out.
      Whenever they are apart, she continues to call him back so that she can film with him. Then when he shows up, she paints this narrative of him being unhinged.
      Matt is a damn fool to keep falling for it.

      • Ronnie

        Agreed! Agreed! Agreed!

        • classycns

          And this is why a grown ass man should be buying his OWN plane tickets. Matt enjoyed a lot of perks on Kenya’s dime but now he wants to act brand new, LOL.

          • Ronnie

            Lol. He is too broke.

      • Chickpea16

        Became apparent Kenya is playing games with Matt. He can’t handle it as well as Walter did.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          It is as obvious as her fake ass. Kenya is gaslighting Matt but he is too dumb to see it.
          She is a total fraud & anyone still believing this tomfoolery needs to have their heads examined.

      • Dani-K

        Right Bette – I’d be mad too if I got all the way to the airport to learn my flight was cancelled. But I’d pay for another plane ticket with my own damn money or I wouldn’t go. Certainly wouldn’t drive 3 1/2 hours to have a conversation.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          I know that’s right. I guess Matt doesn’t have a credit card or enough funds to purchase a ticket using his debt card.
          What moron drives 3 1/2 hours to a place they are not wanted?!? He just keeps playing right into her hands.

          • Dani-K

            When we first met Matt I had high hopes for him and Kenya – but it’s over for many reasons – and to prolong their relationship, especially for ratings or a storyline, sure does send the wrong message.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Precisely. It is actually disturbing to witness. Kenya should be ashamed of herself. She is the one that chose to take the DV route, to have a SL & so she can continue to play the victim.

  • Vegas Valley Girl

    Matt is to good for ratings for miss Moore to just let him Twirl out of her life..He feeds right into her hand.. Personally I dont even think shenanigans like this should even be filmed.. Its mental and physical abuse and Bravo should be ashamed at using these two for ratings… Bravo has reached a whole new low with this crap

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    That scene with Johnny (ex Kandi employee) and Fakedra was a set up. She was deliberately asking questions and he was deliberately saying shit to make Kandi look shady. What a fool – there goes all his income from event planning, a career Kandi built for him

    • Dani-K

      I know! About as set up as that bomb-threat phone call earlier this season.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      I am just glad that Phaedra turned down the job. We all know that had the roles been reversed, Kandi would have taken it with no problem.

      • WeCouldBeHeroes

        She turned down the job because she has no legal expertise in the area, but she was happy to be a shady heifer on TV

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Good for her. I hope she gets some dirt on MJ next.

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    Even though Kenya can be manipulative, Matt is a mental bitch. Why was he even there? He is crazy. She doesn’t have to speak to you, especially at a event. What was that,

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    All of these woman look like they have fake butts – Porsha’s looked bigger

    • Perturbed

      They should be getting them amputated instead of making them bigger imo! 😂

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Kandi being the exception, it looks to me like they’ve all packed on the pounds this season … but recent pics of Kenya indicate she’s lost a ton and not sure when they filmed Celeb Apprentice, but Po’Shit looks like she slimmed down too.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    That was so unprofessional of Kandi to rip that guy apart while her Krusty Coated Crew sat around cackling. Don Juan is just as irritating as MJ.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Really? I thought the ungrateful thirsty bitch had it coming. His sense of entitlement is staggering, but then again … he seems a little “off” to me.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        He did seem a little strange. LOL!!

  • Sunflower

    Again, great Recap Dani-K…
    I relived the episode all over again… and enjoyed your snarks two-fold.
    I did not anticipate this episode too much because of Matt’s enduring violence – it was a nail biter!
    Sheree – illiterate – was admiring the book her Ghostwriter actually wrote, and the clip of Nene pretend-pole dancing is going to cause some future drama. Nene must be on alert by now.
    Cynthia and Kenya’s dresses for Peter’s event were on point.
    Kandi seems to employ most of Atlanta including Bravo… she keeps writing those checks… and so far nobody has complained that her checks ever bounced!

    • Dani-K

      Thanks Sunflower! I’m wondering if this is the last of the “novel” or if we’ll hear more about it in later episodes?

      • Sunflower

        I have no idea… if it was a one-shot deal!
        Sheree came on board RHOA just on time to promote or at least throw out there that she has the juiciest gossip in her book.
        I thought it was funny that Bob pretended that he didn’t know anything about a Tell-All. Conveniently Sheree received a phone call from her publisher/ghost writer while she was in the company of Bob.

        • Bobbi

          Lmao! No lie. That Tell -All is just that because someone else wrote it Sheree TOLD ALL of the few snippets she contributed. Hahaha

          • Sunflower

            Snippets of some C-listers hanging on poles and stuff..!!
            The Ghostwriter must be brilliant to produce a book out of that ratchet mess.

          • Bobbi

            Right. …..and we had to grit through Nene assaulting a pole for that bs. LOL.

      • The Champ

        Your recaps are everything Dani-K. Thanks for the entertainment 😀

    • The Champ

      Kenya said Matt is supposed to be banned due to his violent behaviors. Hopefully this is the last we see of that knucklehead. He needs to seek treatment. Love your post ☺

  • Perturbed

    I thought the driver hit Matt?

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      All we heard was a (((slap))). I don’t believe anyone hit anyone.

  • Sugar in my tank

    Kudos for Kandi. This woman has worked diligently to maintain her multi-million dollar business and it’s nice to see it defended against an ungrateful person. Sheree, next…Peter’s club looked nice and snazzy and Cynthia looked gorgeous..Pork chop and the bed scene was contrived..Kenya’s situation has been allowed to be filmed which is unfortunate. It seems like because Kenya is not liked, the violent, aggressive and unstable behavior by Matt is warranted. Yes he is unstable, yes he is violent and yes he has been arrested numerous times for his violent behavior. Hopefully Kenya will keep her gun handy just in case she needs it..

    • The Champ

      Oooooh Sugar, you better tell it like it is, not like it was. I whole heartedly agree, your post was perfectly executed. Point, blank, period.

      • Bobbi

        I agree as well. The hate for Kenya is a commodity for Bravo and they are still using that factor to make money off of her. It really is unfortunate.

        • The Champ

          They also new the viewers/haters would eat it up. Anything Kenya does is heightened to the 10th power. Ppl are drawn to her, whether they love or hate her, but can’t stop talking about her. They are taking advantage of both her and Matt’s disastrous love affair. Not good for tv.

          • Bobbi

            Yep. That’s what I’m saying. Their representation of her is constructed so as to fuel the haters who want to see her hurt, taken down, damaged and embarrassed. It is a commodity that has paid dividends so far. I know they don’t want Kenya physically hurt but they are pushing the envelope right to the edge and it is disgusting.

          • The Champ

            At some point these ladies are gonna have to take their own heads out of their azzes and band together for the betterment of the show. It can’t continue this way. Bravo is all about the money. Rhoa is the highest rated show on the franchise. These ladies don’t understand how much power they really have, they need to use it to their advantage.

          • Bobbi

            ITA. Problem is, they know there are enough women to loop around the city who will take and do whatever they are unwilling to. I think the viewers will have to push that agenda quite honestly. As long as the viewers accept it Bravo will just find someone else to do it. I wish it were different. I protest to Carlos occasionally. it’s getting close to abuse now though imo.

          • The Champ

            True. Most viewers enjoy seeing Kenya hurting. All they really care about is the shade and thottin and boppin. There minds don’t go past that. I have seen a few on ig voice their disgust on the violence against women on the show. Carlos and Andy are exploiting women bcuz they hate what they can’t be. Maybe the women need to do their own creating and find another outlet. I enjoyed rhoa over the years, all the women could of brought something different to the show, instead they let their egos get involved.Now there just scratching and surviving to get that # 1 spot.

          • Bobbi

            It’s true. No one stopped them from being great except themselves. They’ve had the upper hand via the producers since they’ve come on. Look at the chit Kenya had to endure and she still rose to the top. It just tells you they had nothing to bring. Nothing + nothing still leaves nothing.

          • The Champ

            This post says it all. “Nothing + nothing still leaves nothing. They need to stop playing themselves and get their heads in the game. Please go read Kenya’s bravo blog, I hope she is really trying to get over Matt, bcuz he’s not a keeper. 😩😩

          • Bobbi

            Going now……

      • Sugar in my tank

        Thank you :^)

        • The Champ

          Always 😉 Keep spillin that pipin hot tea ♨ 😆

          • Sugar in my tank

            I just try to give my perspective..

          • The Champ

            And you do just that. Never biased or one sided. I respect your insight ☺

          • Sugar in my tank

            You are insightful as well..

          • The Champ

            Thank you Sugar 😊

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    I get Kandi’s angst and thoroughly enjoyed her putting Miss Johhnie in her place, but I’m really tired of the (over)use of the word “muthaFcker” ugh!~… sooo crude. But then again, between Po’Shit’s (weird voyeuristic) hook up scene, plugging (no pun intended) Kandi’s new double dildo for (for their lesbian couples) and the general ratchetness of all the story lines this season, crude and crass seems to be the underlying theme of this one. It’s becoming downright unwatchable for me. I still don’t know WTF ShitbySherrie is doing on the show – I’m at the point of just FF-ing through her (badly acted) scripted scenes.

    • Dani-K

      Yes, this season is like Bravo told the production company they need to make it more crude and crass this season or risk losing the gig. The tone they are establishing with Matt’s escalating violence bothers me.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        IKR? I was rooting for Matt, and while I don’t doubt his claims that Kenya basically used him and tossed him aside (like a used pair of Lubes), he’s definitely crossing the line. But the problem with this one is that it’s all yesterday’s news and the suspense of what happens is virtually non-existent. They should do these “reality” shows in real time.

  • The Champ

    First off, I’d like to start by having a moment of silence for the yoni egg………………….. Last night’s episode was the last anyone has heard or seen him or her, didn’t stand a chance. Kenya’s scene with Matt was disturbing to say the least. Matt has repeatedly proven to have violent tendacies on and off camera. Destroying property, having unprotected sex with an IG thot, alleged steroid use, which ig thot claims to have purchased for him, run ins with the law, physical assault, etc. Clearly a victim of his own demise. Kandi had every right to Boss up on that fool Johnny. He tried to come for her reputation without even addressing her first. What a crab azz friend. She gave it to him straight, no chaser. He fancied his azz over to Phaedra’s rent-a-room and she was happy to oblige. All the oooooohin and mmmhmmm’s was unnecessary, but so is she. I’m sure she enjoyed every bit of that scene. Telling the world Kandi and Todd are bad business. Kandi told y’all this heifer was coming for her , telling folks not to do business with her or Todd. Peter’s club is everything, the atmosphere was a on point. He and Cyn have a genuine love for one another. Hopefully they can be better as friends, then as a couple. Maybe they can turn it all around like Mene and Greg. Time will tell!

    • Bobbi

      The recap on the recap. Ha! Lmao on the rent a room. This is good stuff. It was a bit of reprieve on the nasty cat fights but Phaedra is still trying to poke holes in Kandi and Todd’s rep because she knows it ain’t ova.
      I’m glad Kandi put Johnnie Boy in his place trying to come up on her business without doing his job. When Phaedra asked did he have benefits the idiot said “no just Obamacare. ” Well what in the hail is that? Escort this fool and his clipboard out of here!

      • The Champ

        Phaedra is still throwing dirt and hiding her hands.Kandi already called it and we get to watch it unfold. She better tend to her own nonexistent businesses.

        • Bobbi

          Phaedra is still running her trap while Porsha is trying to pull all her chit back but it’s too late. She’s obviously going to imply some other lies about Shamea being in on the threesome accusations.
          She’d better tend to her own nasty sex life instead of Kandi’s.

          Off topic: I’m a little confused. Is this the second time Matt breaks Kenya’s windows? We’ve already seen one incident. And how can you punch someone if your head is rolled up in a truck window? Matt is lying about that. That is physically impossible to do.

          • The Champ

            Girl yes. Poorsha’s dumbazz is a backslider doing the Devils work. Too late, closed the gate. She already put it out there for the world to see, no take backs biiih. And guess what? There more too come. We haven’t even seen half of it. Now she wants to be delivered from this mess she created. Didn’t she used to be a preacher, reading scripture from “the bible for dummies” ? So fake. I think this next episode is one of Matt’s many violent outburst. Kenya tried to protect him and save him the embarrassment. There’s a lot we won’t get to see.

          • Bobbi

            This break was needed but I’m here for it. That’s why she’s afraid. She knows the half hasn’t been told and she’s realizing that she f’d pub all of her friendsips that were the most valuable. This is her attempt to salvage what is left. She might have made some inroads with Shamea once filming ended but it’s about to blow up again. She was definitely a preacher once -everything about this woman is a bald face lie.

            I’m wondering if Kenya is trying to keep Matt from physically retaliating by always trying to smooth his jagged edges. This man is damaged and has 0 potential for anyone/thing until he gets help. . He should be required to attend anger management, a psychological eval and counseling before being allowed to roam free. He’s dangerous.

          • The Champ

            Exactly, that hoe over there knows she done f’d up big time. The only acquaintance she has is Phaedra, who has already turned on her. Her dumbazz should have sat this one out and let them fight amongst themselves. Too late to backtrack now. Matt is scary to the max, I was scared for Kenya. He is definitely trying to scare and manipulate her into giving him another chance. Kenya needs to stay close to her dad and take heed to his words of advice. He always has her best interest in mind. Her aunt Lori gives her sound advice as well. If that simpleton comes for Kenya again, he will have hell to pay. I hope she stays far away from his toxic azz.

          • Bobbi

            Matt is a domestic terrorist. Point blank period the end. He scares me as well. He wants to cripple Kenya with fear and those messages he sent to her proves it. He doesn’t deserve to be free to roam the streets especially after destroying her property.

          • The Champ

            I’m sick of his teenage mutant lookin azz. He is not worth the trouble. I can’t stand a weak, controlling man, trying to tear her down. Did you read her bravo blog yet? I mentioned it in another post?

          • Bobbi

            Thanks for the heads up. The blogs are coming fast this season right? They came much later previous seasons.

          • The Champ

            You’re welcome ☺

          • Bobbi

            Just read her blog.

            My thing is, it doesn’t matter whether he is a monster or not. Even if he has only flash moments where he loses control that is too much Just as she stated it happened very fast. Apparently when the driver began to roll up the window he got a crack on. In that short span of time he could have seriously hurt one or both of them. He would be repentant of course but when the damage is done it’s too late.

            His mother is silly to send her son to Kenya’s house after all that has happened. I don’t even know if Matt is telling the truth about that. This is why Kenya needs a restraining order against him so he won’t even think about coming around. Don’t give him an inch. She still loves him you can tell. Sigh……

          • The Champ

            I agree 100%. Matt and his family need to sever all ties to Kenya. In order for her an Matt to get over the relationship. They don’t need his mother’s interference. Matt is a loose canon and has proven himself to be abusive. He needs to figure his life out and then find love. Kenya needs a man who matches her on every level, especially mentally. Matt is immature and weak.

          • Bobbi

            He needs to stay in his lane and date the Instagram thots. That truly is his speed. I was telling GetReal that Matt, Nene and Marlo fit the same profile and I see why Kenya is drawn to them. She sees hurt hearts and souls and she knows the feeling. She sees flickers of light in them but she is not equipped. Hurt people who do not put the work in on themselves repeat the cycle. Kenya had a nurturing grandmother, continued to work on herself and came out on the other side. She doesn’t want to give up on people but she needs to let Go and let God. This is not her battle.

          • The Champ

            So true. Matt is a scrub, he’s hanging around trying to latch onto Todd and Peter now. He wasn’t even on the radar until he hooked up with Kenya. It looks like Kenya has fell hard for this fool and his buckshot beard. He is a thirsty opportunist who won’t go away, shoo fly. Marlo and Nene aren’t friends to anyone, they are both too self absorbed. They act lIke high school girls, you can’t sit with us. All three have tried to used Kenya for all she had to offer. Kenya can’t be controlled so it will never work in their favor. I hope she gets over Matt quicker than she fell for him.

    • Sunflower

      You have arrived…
      Bobbi already said it….
      The Recap on the Recap – mini version.
      LOL…!

      • The Champ

        Thank you Sunflower, you know how we all live to have fun 🙌🙌. It’s not to be taken too seriously 😁

    • Dani-K

      Steroid use would explain a lot of Matt’s behavior – but not excuse it of course. Yes, may the yoni egg RIP. Too funny!

      • The Champ

        😁😁
