Real Housewives of Atlanta by Ramonacoaster
Porsha is in the studio recording a song called “Perfectly Worthless.” It is…surprise, surprise… about her imperfect relationship with Kordell. During midsong, the vocal coach stops her and says he doesn’t believe what she is singing, tells her to think of everything she has gone through in order for the emotion to come out in her singing. As she is singing, a ceiling light falls down and surprises Porsha. Everyone blames it on Kandi since she came in at the same time. They were just joking. Maybe there is a ghost in the studio that wants Porsha to stop singing. Just joking. Actually she sounds pretty good. Kandi talks to Porsha about missing rehearsal for her musical. Porsha says she never got the schedule and that Kandi’s team needs to communicate effectively with her. They clear it up with someone from Porsha’s team who didn’t realize their schedule was attached to another email so it was Porsha’s team who was at fault. If it is already November, why aren’t you asking for the schedule? Why are you assuming that you are not practicing for that month? Didn’t she miss some days rehearsing already? Porsha is such a flake. I don’t care how many times she says she is dedicated to a Kandi’s musical, I think she thinks this production is a joke.
Nene is meeting with her manager, Steven Grossman, to show off how many job offers she is getting and to discuss her deal to put her name on a fashion label and show it on HSN. They had passed on a job on John Stamos’s show on the US network and a job on a tv show Mr. Box Office with Jon Lovitz and Bill Bellamy. Nene in her TH says she is presented with all kind of offers, not all of it she felt was right for her and she has left million dollars on the table by not accepting these offers. She wants to accept things that will elevate her. Her manager advised her to work with an acting coach but Nene says she can’t promise him she would go every week and she prefers to be more raw with her emotion. Nene has never watched Scandal and her manager loves that show and wishes she were on it. Nene will get ready to go to auditions and read scripts.
Kandi wants to set up a counseling session with her mother and she invited Dr. Sutherland, a family counselor to explain her situation. There is a flashback to when Kandi was dating AJ and Mama Joyce expresses her fear of Kandi getting taken advantage of during a counseling session. It’s like a repeat of history. Kandi thinks when she gets serious in a relationship, her mother starts fearing she might lose her (or that Kandi might lose her money and mama won’t get taken care of in her older age). The counselor asks Kandi what she is doing to continue that behavior. Mama Joyce arrives and the counselor talks to Joyce by herself. Mama Joyce said her and Kandi lost communication and that Todd quit his $90,000 a year job to date her daughter, the millionaire. Joyce has complained that since Kandi has been with Todd she has gained 30 lbs and that Todd has not been taking care of Kandi. I found that funny because I have gained weight in a relationship due to feeling more relaxed and complacent. Mama Joyce brings up that Kandi never had a close relationship with her father and that she had a close relationship with her brother but he passed when he was 22. Mama Joyce doesn’t know how Todd treats Kandi because she says she is not around so the counselor points out she has not taken the time to know Todd. The counselor asks if Mama Joyce and Kandi wants to make changes to improve the relationship. The counselor wants to meet again. I think the first meeting is just to gather information about the situation. They need many more counseling sessions in order to move forward.
Nene and her manager are looking at patterns for her fashion label. Nene vetoes and approves what she likes and what she doesn’t. After the meeting the team knows what to work on and what to keep. Nene loves double cold shoulder blue tent blouse. I like it. It hides the tummy.
Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia meet and Kenya announces that Velvet died. She got attacked by a neighbor’s dog. They both hug Kenya. Kenya is doing a memorial for Velvet and Kandi & Cynthia have been very kind to her. Cynthia has a dog too so she can’t imagine her dog passing. Dogs are like part of the family and it is heartbreaking to lose one. My sister’s dog was a Yorkie too and he got attacked by a bigger dog when he was going for a walk. I felt so bad because he was so small even though he thought he was the biggest, baddest dog on the block. He didn’t have a chance. Anyway the ladies knew how much Velvet meant to Kenya and sincerely expressed their condolences.
The lawyer and Apollo decide to take a pottery class and try to reenact the scene from Ghost with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. This scene was not so romantic with the lawyer complaining constantly.
Peter announces that Bar None may be in limbo. Cynthia freaks out then tries to keep calm and confident. Peter worked out the details of the lease of the building. He doesn’t want to stop doing things in business even though Cynthia doesn’t understand what is happening. He should at least take the time to explain the details because she does own half and if something should happen to him she can take over seamlessly.
Kandi is having a rehearsal at the theatre where they are going to perform. Porsha shows up and Kandi says she missed a lot of choreography. Dee Woods tries showing Porsha the moves when she gets called over by some lady who I guess is the director. She wants a commitment from Porsha that she will show up to the performances and the rest of rehearsals. Porsha assures her she will. Thank goodness Porsha has an understudy that can takeover. Mama Joyce comes by to watch the practice and Kandi hopes her mother doesn’t get offended. Don Juan jokes that the actress saying her lines sounds like Mama Joyce. As Mama Joyce leaves, Todd says hello and gives her a tour of the red carpet. Mama Joyce is not feeling him. Todd starts speaking to Mama directly to ask why their relationship went downhill. Mama Joyce says she stopped respecting him because he gave up his job. Todd explains that he had a lot of money saved and Kandi wanted him to stay in Atlanta to work on their relationship since his work sends him to different cities. Todd says “I would love for you to love me one day.” Isn’t that cute? He says the only person who ends up getting hurt is Kandi. Mama says her whole existence is her children and she doesn’t want to see anyone taking advantage of her children. She has lost one child and she puts everything into Kandi. Mama hopes that Todd has the right intentions toward her and he says he does. They hug and it is so heartwarming especially since they are showing heartwarming scenes from the musical at the same time. Well, Mama has no choice but to get over her worries since Todd and Kandi got married recently. I wish them a long, happy, healthy marriage.
