RECAP: #RHOA Kenya Moore Suffers Meltdown Over Divorcing Her New Husband As He Caves To Public Pressure!

Posted on Nov 13 2017 - 1:25am by Avigail

Sunday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicks off with Housewives soft porn via newly single Cynthia Bailey. She’s indulging in a seductive bath while the camera strokes every curve of her naked body. She’s a 50-year-old divorcee, in heat and desperate for a man to cool her off. 

Porsha’s at home with her mom and her mom’s best friend, when her sister, Lauren, and her daughter Baleigh drops in. Lauren and her baby daddy are having issues so she’s moving into Porsha’s palace. After Porsha lays down some ground rules for her new roommate, the group moves into the kitchen for a gossip sesh about NeNe and Porsha’s fight at Cynthia’s 50th birthday party. Porsha feels NeNe betrayed her when she said “Freak and Fraud” (Porsha and Phaedra) need to go (be fired) in an interview. Porsha says that in the past, they’ve uplifted each other and NeNe is only dragging her now for publicity. 

Next, Cynthia goes on a date with a young man she describes as “Norbit With Swag.” His name is Evan, he’s an artist/photographer, and has arranged a photoshoot along with a private dinner for their date. He’s pulled out all the stops to impress the much older Cynthia. Evan looks 40 years-old, but he’s actually 31 years younger than the former model and Cynthia’s inner cougar is not roaring for the cub. Bye Evan!

Sheree visits her life coach, Jack Daniels, (I kid you not). She’s still dealing with domestic/mental abuse baggage from her previous marriage to Bob Whitfield. Her coach asks how are her kids coping with the matter. Sheree shares that she hasn’t spoken to her children about the abuse. Through tears, Sheree explains that she’s struggled with opening up to her children about it. He advises her to face the obstacle head on and communicate her painful past to them. She agrees.

Across town, Kenya and Cynthia stroll through the park and the topic of discussion is Kenya’s nuptials. She’s glowing and in total wedded bliss — gushing over her new husband — Marc Daly. Kenya admits that she hasn’t changed her name yet but plans to use Kenya Moore-Daly.

She tells Cynthia that they were introduced by chef Roble and their introduction was kismet because they would have never crossed paths otherwise — he’s in the corporate world and she’s in entertainment. Kenya says Marc’s everything she prayed for. She explains that her husband is a private person and she needs to protect him — Cynthia agrees and advises her to put her husband first.

Moving on, Sheree, Shamea and Kandi are shopping for Shamea’s wedding in Africa — Nairobi, Kenya. As the ladies try own vibrant traditional garb, they discuss Porsha not attending the wedding. Porsha told Shamea that she’s not coming because first class tickets cost $10k and she can’t afford the trip unless some rich African man is paying. Kandi can’t contain her joy at the news — considering Porsha participated in slandering her name with disgraced attorney, Fraudra Phaedra Parks.

Over at Porsha’s, she’s clearing out her fridge packed full of meat. She’s a converted vegan because it’s the the latest trend she wants to be healthy and her mother showed her a documentary about being healthy. She asks her sister if she should still freeze her eggs and her sister says, “Be vegan for six months and then freeze your eggs.” Essentially, her current eggs are drunken “Hennessy eggs.” Good ole Lauren, always looking out for her sis.

Meanwhile, Kenya is not having a good day over at Moore Manor. She’s showing off her wedding gown to her dogs and struggling with balancing her marriage being in the spotlight, while desperately trying to keep it private. Her assistant Brandon aka her best friend calls and they’re talking about the public spectacle her secret wedding has devolved into. Kenya explains that people don’t want to see her happy.

After they hang up, Kenya suffers an emotional meltdown off-camera — while talking to a RHOA producer. Kenya is bawling like a baby about her marriage falling apart — after only three days. Yikes! She says that her husband’s ex-girlfriends are contacting him with old gossip about her and as a result, he’s not sleeping and eating. The pressure is getting to him and she “doesn’t want to get divorced.”

The scene is heavy, dramatic and obviously not meant to be aired. But clearly, the producers are getting revenge on Kenya for eloping without notifying RHOA production first. If Kenya’s new husband is caving to public pressure this quick — it’s safe to say their union may be doomed.

Later, Kandi opens up her home to Sheree and her friends to practice Sheree telling her kids about the abuse in her marriage. The exercise is proving difficult for the mom, so she can’t imagine executing the task in front of her kids.

It’s time for Shamea’s bridal shower, and while the theme is tea party — the festivities and decor are very much déclassé — equipped with half naked servers. The women partake in dirty games — such as lowering a hot dog on a string into a hole. After the ladies sit down, Shamea tells Porsha that she was shocked she came to her dowry ceremony, considering they hadn’t spent much time together since Phaedra accused Shamea of being in a three way relationship with Kandi and her husband, Todd.

Porsha reveals again that she won’t be attending the wedding in Africa, because of a medical condition involving sitting with her legs down for too long. Shamea is disappointed and grills her former bestie about the condition but Shamea’s not buying her excuses. At the same time, Kandi and Carmon are cutting up over Porsha’s “medical” excuse for attending the wedding. 

Porsha is confused by the whole drama going down in front of Kandi and Sheree, since she previously told Shamea that she would not be attending her wedding. Everyone starts to depart the party, but outside, Shamea and Porsha continue their fight.

In Porsha’s car, she goes off on Shamea for making her look like a bad friend and Shamea is still pissed over Porsha choosing Phaedra over her, “Well, ever since the fuckery with Phaedra,” Shamea yells. They argue back and forth, when Porsha says, “I’m not trying to understand it anymore.” Shamea finally caves and realizes that she’s talking in circles in this argument. And Porsha decides she’s going to continue doing what she’s been doing — love Shamea from afar. This concludes their bitching and Porsha pulls off.

Tune in next week when NeNe’s husband has a medical scare and Porsha and her sister clash over business.

  • GirlPlz

    Porsha is despicable

    • ScrappieONE

      She’s a complete moron. Porsha and her sister trying to pull off a radio show for advice to other women is embarrassing especially when she made the comment about a woman who was in a relationship with a man twice her age, Porsha didn’t even know if men could conceive children at the age of 49 and then referenced if the babies would come out looking old. Enough of this dumb bimbo.

  • we”r”family

    Porsha’s sister should’ve know better. I mean when her sister was pregnant Porsha wasn’t exactly nice. So, moving in together isn’t smart. Lauren seems to have more business sense than her sister. Porsha is now in the forefront spewing her fake excuses.

  • Deanna777

    If these women are sending Marc “things”, it’s up to him to tell them to stop. If he’s not doing this, then he’s probably keeping them on the back burner in case he and Kenya don’t work out.

    • Authentic

      Real shady for Marc to engage in nasty conversations about his “wife” then turn around and repeat said conversations to the wife and she in turn runs to production to cry about it? The groundwork is being laid out for something but I can’t figure out what.

  • GirlPlz

    I felt sorry for Kenya.

    • BeckyGrey

      Said “No One”.

      • GirlPlz

        Said me

        • BeckyGrey

          Ok, Said “No One but you”

          • GirlPlz

            “no one” meaning the carefully cherry-picked on this forum
            Kenya has so many fans outside this website
            There is another world out there

          • BeckyGrey

            Please listen to me, not as a person lecturing but as a person observing behavior. I am not a stan of any “celebrity , maybe Denizel or Trevor Noah. Nothing is so serious that you take offense of saying something about a “TV celebrity” or someone who doesn’t know you or is not related to you.
            I made the statement playfully. I don’t hate any of these people, they only hold a space in my life to entertain me. Kenya, well the role she has played is disrespectful , unpleasant and according to her is unbothered. People can root for her or root for her downfall “as a character” but to say there is another world out there yes there is and some people need to be out in it.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Best post, EVER!!👏👏👏

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    There was Kandi with another one of her minions doing her dirty work again.

    • christy flanders

      Exactly! I noticed that too.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        When Carmon said Porsha is used to having her legs in the air, I chuckled but was thinking & your boss likes dildos up her ass.
        None of these women have any room to be slut shaming the other.

        • Trippinhhard

          Bette you on a roll this day. I have never liked Kandi at all. I will channel surfing and saw Joyceless at the women rehearsal and I kept flipping channels. Kandi can’t do a show without Joyceless showing up.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            TY, Trippin!!
            I think Kandi is boring. Even when she is starting trouble, she is the throw the rock & hide your hands kind of person. IE get your paid minions or your awful mother to do your dirty work.
            She also can not stand for anyone to be friends with her enemies. Very childish & controlling.

        • wiseone

          Carmen and Don Juan are Kandi’s flunkies and Kandi is still about the drama. Every time Porsha opens her mouth I see Kandi turning up her nose and making faces. To be real Kandi started the drama between her, Phaedra and Porsha but dungeon gate made Kandi look like the victim – victim she’s not. Kandi used to be an undercover troublemaker but now it is plain to see because she is a carbon copy of her nasty spirited mama.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            She sure did, but everyone conveniently forgot all of that.
            Kandi is far from innocent in that debacle.

          • wiseone

            I know and I can tell by her mannerisms she is not done yet – she is ready to start some drama.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Remember when they all went to Miami?!? She said ‘I don’t care if Porsha goes. I don’t have to speak to her!!’
            She told Todd she was just going to ignore her. Then as soon as they sat down at that dinner Kandi ran to print out texts from Porsha & make a scene. Not about the drama, my ass.
            Kandi is all about the drama. She & her whole crew. All on her payroll & all just as messy as she is.

          • wiseone

            That’s right but Porsha brought up dungeon gate when her and Kandi met one on one and Kandi did not display the anger then like she did when she came for Porsha in front of her posse. Instead of Kandi focusing on Porsha’s anger management she should be checking her mama’s anger issues. Kandi is just low down and dirty and very conniving.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Preach!! Tell the truth & shame the devil.
            If other HW can get inflammatory things cut out, Tamara has a song & there is evidence of her doing things with a man that is not her husband. You mean to tell me that Kandi, a real certified star well before she joined the show couldn’t get them to edit out the scene with Porsha making that outrageous accusation?!?
            Kandi, Todd & Bravo all agreed to let it be aired. Kandi’s reward was a pay raise & another god awful spinoff. The way Kandi came with guns blazing & her horrid mother visiting the lawyer, they were out for blood & it is because they already knew about the rumor that Phaedra had told Porsha.
            How else do you explain why they were all on attack mode?!? It looked like they were defending Alpo but this is the real reason they were going for the jugular.

          • wiseone

            I agree and I think I will boycott this show. You are doing some preaching yourself but a lot of people still see Kandi as the victim – not us. Kandi is the victimizer if anything.

          • BeckyGrey

            She ready to start drama everywhere. In this show and with her group Xscape. That interview with Xscape on WWHL was brutal, the real Kandi comes out. When she doesn’t have her paid friends sticking up for her, she is quite the mean one…nothing but her mother.

          • wiseone

            Exactly – I have Kandi’s number. When Nene and Porsha had words at Cynthia’s party I saw her making faces and checking out their conversation. To an extent she is using Nene to do her dirty work because she despises Nene – always has but now that they have something in common (their dislike of Porsha) she will play the game and pretend that she and Nene are friends. Kandi has enlisted her attack dogs to go after Porsha and last season before dungeon gate Kandi and Kenya did their best to provoke Porsha. To me Kandi is a snake in the grass.

    • GirlPlz

      You mean like Porsha was one of Fraudra’s minions doing her dirty work

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Kandi is the one that does it every season.
        Even if what you claim is true, it doesn’t change the fact that Kandi always has her minions stirring shyt up. No amount of well so & so did it too, will change that fact.

        • GirlPlz

          Blah blah blah
          Porsha and Kandi made up defamatory lies but of course Kandi is the bad one

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Here you go again with your passsive aggressiveness crap that you claim doesn’t work on you.
            You just like trying to stir up mess & it’s boring.

          • GirlPlz

            Ok, Jan

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            LOL!!

        • BeckyGrey

          lol

  • penny 2

    I get the feeling Kenya said those things to get Bravo off her back about him appearing on the show. Wise decision on his part to stay far away from this mess. I’d give up social media too if I were him. People are brutal.

  • christy flanders

    Great recap as usual Avagail! Is this show a cluster-f*ck or what?! Same nasty skanks going after each other. I said 2 seasons ago that Shamea was trying to get a spot on the show & surprise…here she is. First of all, who the h*’ll wants to go to Africa for a friends wedding?! Not me! I hate when people plan these destination weddings & expect everyone to spend a fortune just to get to the venue. That doesn’t include lodging, meals, clothes & a wedding gift. Now if you have the money to pay your guests expenses, fine, otherwise forget it. The medical condition Porsha was referring to is real but I think she doesn’t want to go & I don’t blame her. Look how Shamea allowed Kandi & her minions to treat Porsha at whatever that event was. Where was Porsha’s good friend Sheree, sitting right by Kandi I believe. I’m glad Porsha has her sister, otherwise she would have no one. I think Cynthia is flattered by the attention of younger men but she worries an awful lot about where Peter is. So far the show is the same boring backstabbing bullish*t as last year. I’m so sick of Kandi hocking her products on the show. So sick of Kandi period!!! Kenya is a mess as usual. It sounds like to me that her new hubby married her before he knew much about her. Now that he’s finding out what he got, he wants to return it. Sorry Sir, all sales are final. Haha! Seriously, I think Kenya is one of those woman that at FIRST pretends to be exactly what a man wants until she has him hooked. Then when the real Kenya shows up, they don’t want her. I don’t feel sorry for Kenya because she refuses to see her faults & change plus I believe she has bashed every woman on the shows marriages. She is not a girls, girl. I’m glad AATT does these recaps because I can’t stomach watching the whole show.

    • shayvoe

      Amen!!!

    • Trippinhhard

      Well stated 👏👏👏
      The blog along with your post is excellent and I don’t waste time watching none of the Housewives show.
      It’s the same old formula and it’s not piping hot anymore to me.

    • wiseone

      You should be writing these recaps – you are on point.

      • Authentic

        I was just about to reply to Christy “Great recap Chisty”. She nailed it.

      • christy flanders

        Thank you!

    • Authentic

      This was a great recap too!

      It was so childish to watch Carmen imitate Porsha while Kandi giggled IN FRONT of Porsha. Kandi is a pathetic snake.

    • GirlPlz

      A lot of people don’t mind going to another destination for their friend’s wedding
      However, as much I don’t like Porsha, I think it is a bit too much to ask your friends to go on expensive trip. Porsha is broke and can’t afford that

      You have a lot of sympathy for Porsha and criticize everyone else. The Porsha that went around spreading defamatory lies about Kandi and accusing her of rape.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        “Went around spearing defamatory lies about Kandi & accusing her of rape!”
        When did this happen?!? What episode?!? No one EVER accused Kandi of rape. That is a bold face lie.

        • GirlPlz

          Gurl, go help Phaedra spread her lies about dating Shemar Moore.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            No thanks. I don’t care that much.
            How about you go help fat back Shannon lose some weight. Or how about you take a long walk on a short pier?!? Smoochies!!

          • GirlPlz

            So you’re also a body shamer?

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Sure!! Why not?!? If that fits your narrative.
            It’s all so funny to call Nene a moose or call Porsha out for her big ass & thighs. Call Phaedra out onher back rolls & have a good laugh at Vicki in her bday get up, but heaven forbid we call Shanloon’s wide ass out.
            I am not here for your double standards. You are the one with the blind allegiance & double standards. Yet you are the first one to call others out.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Don’t think I forgot… when was Kandi EVER accused of rape by anyone?!?
            I’ll wait…

      • christy flanders

        I believe Porsha was repeating what Phaedra told her that Kandi said. After she found out that it was a lie, she apologized to Kandi. I’m not a Porsha fan but I don’t like to see anyone bullied by a group of people. Especially when everyone in the group is guilty of one bad thing or another. I probably shouldn’t admit this but I found the accusations against Kandi quite funny. Sure did get Kandi’s azz all in an uproar. Truth be told, Kandi was so upset because she thought that the allegations were going to cause her to lose money & we all know how Kandi LOVES her money!

        • GirlPlz

          Porsha wanted to attack Kandi. She is not innocent

  • Original Jackie

    Porscha is a shitty friend. Shamea needs to just be done with her

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Porcha pulls down a nice salary for RH as well as Dish Nation. It’s hard to believe she couldn’t afford a plane ticket to Africa.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    Shamea acted as if Porsha had the nerve to show up & participate in her dowry ceremony but now she is insisting that Porsha fly all the way to Kenya for her.
    Shamea already knew that Porsha wasn’t going but was just trying to make a scene. Just sucking up to Kandi & trying to get some cameratime.

    • shayvoe

      Hi Bette….who in their right mind is going to pay 10 grand, not including hotel, food and miscellaneous, to fly to a wedding in Kenya??!! If you want guests at your Kenyan wedding, you need to pay your guests way. Only Kandi is dumb enough to throw that much much money away, or maybe she and Shamea, and their spouses had other things in mind, so it was worth the money to Kandi.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Hey, Shayvoe!! I hope all is well with you.
        I couldn’t agree with you more. Kandi is a sneaky, nasty heifer. Just like her momma.
        She is chirping in her sex slave’s ear about what a terrible friend Porsha is & how great of a friend she is.
        Shamea is down to snatch Porsha’s peach. It is quite obvious at this point.
        And No!! I would not spend $10k or risk my health for the likes of Shamea.

      • GirlPlz

        Kandi is not dumb. She is just rich

    • wiseone

      Right – she just wanted to show off in front of her bed mate (Kandi).

      • Authentic

        Welp!! Kandi did tell Shamea she could put her on top of a box of pancakes in that African store, right? Kandi was looking at Shamea with lust!! Lol!
        Kandi will correct this statement via blogs in 5 4 3 2 1……

        • wiseone

          I picked up on that too and for a long time I have suspected that there was something intimate going on between them.

    • Authentic

      I’m starting to dislike Shamea. Pushing old topics with Porsha in the car scene was too much. The thirst is real with this one

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I agree. If they hadn’t discussed it before filming began, it was Shamea’s plan to bring Phaedra up during taping.
        She claims Porsha put Phaedra before her but we can all see how far up Kandi’s rump Shamea is.

  • LuxLuxLux

    Why we gotta see Cynthia in the bath tho?

    • just me…

      I do not watch…but the picture above gave me a case of head in hands…🤦

      That was cringeworthy–boring Cynthia defines desperation.

      Thank you!

    • GirlPlz

      She’s 50 years old and stunning

  • wiseone

    I know Nene and Kandi are plotting to get rid of Porsha. Kandi may be trying to get Porsha fired so Shamea can get the job.

    • Authentic

      Shamea appeared very peach thirsty last night, like she’s been practicing.
