Real Housewives of Atlanta
Team Meetings and Tears
Todd and Kandi discuss her team. Todd is frustrated because the team’s work stuff is not being completed. He wants to blame Don Juan because he is in charge. When Todd married Kandi, I think he married Don Juan too and that marriage is hitting a rough spot.
Claudia is doing her radio show. Radio is tough. You have to keep talking and make sense at the same time. I guess that’s why Porsha didn’t get the job. They can edit Porsha’s tv segment down to a few minutes and make her sound intelligent or at least get her to read off of cue cards. Claudia is trying to be friendly with Porsha but Porsha’s brain is occupied with getting her makeup done. The silent treatment speaks volume.
Todd doesn’t think Kandi’s team is able to multitask. Don Juan is trying to take the criticism. He had a lot to do with the wedding and A Mother’s Love and other stuff fell by the wayside.
Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia meet to try on some shoes. Claudia has issues about her toes. Then Cynthia says she doesn’t want to try on shoes because she didn’t have a pedicure so of course Kenya pulls off her boot to check them out. Seriously, you don’t tell anything to Kenya that you wouldn’t want anyone else to know that should be evident and if you are on a housewife show, you need to be on point from head to toe. Get a pedicure! I mean isn’t this why most of the housewives go broke because they spend so much money on maintenance and not enough money is coming in? They start talking about their Porsha problems. Claudia is getting the cold shoulder from Porsha because she knows she is friends with Kenya.
Nene, Phaedra, Porsha and Kandi get together to get massages. They talk about Porsha’s meeting with Cynthia. Porsha tells them about Cynthia’s “robot read” (which is the list of things Peter told Cynthia to say to her). Sounds like Porsha is projecting. Nene felt blindsided by Cynthia and she is tearing up the friendship contract. She thinks Cynthia is trying to stir up drama. Now Nene is jealous of Kenya’s friendship with her. Cynthia is Marlo 2.0. Everyone is surprised that the connection is gone. Kandi is getting some memory lapses because she didn’t remember Nene and Kenya’s falling out. It had to do with something about a charity and Kenya not telling Nene she was the honoree. Nene wants to continue hating on Kenya by saying Apollo wants to hurt Phaedra by saying he lied about Kenya. Kandi will apologize to Kenya about treating her like the woman with a scarlet letter. Kenya and Kandi never really had any problems anyway. I think all the women have done shady stuff to each other and your friends with whoever you hate least.
Apollo and Peter meet at a Bar One because Peter loves to gossip and he has to show his bar. Apollo has been staying at home to spend time with his boys. He is concerned that Phaedra will not bring the boys to visit him in prison. He told Peter that Phaedra, when he was under house arrest in the projects, sleeping on an air mattress, wearing an anklet, would exercise conjugal visits the first time he got locked away. Why would the situation be different? Well, she is concerned about her boys being negatively influenced by the visitation. I rather she brought them to a museum. At least you can learn something at a museum. Stupid Apollo wonders if Kenya would give him some conjugal visits.
Claudia and Porsha meet to discuss that they see each other in passing because they work at the same place and Claudia doesn’t want things to turn personal since they are on a housewives show together. Claudia wants to set the tone for their business relationship and she wants to keep up the good vibes. Porsha says she is being paid for her intellectual time frame. What idiot decided that was a good idea? Did they watch the show where she was looking for the underground railroad? Her poor brain must be so exhausted by the end of the day. In fact we were treated to an example of her poor brain shutting off when she changed the subject mid-conversation and started talking about Tom Ford lotion and how good it smells.
Kandi and Don Juan sit down to a meeting. Don Juan doesn’t like getting criticized by Kandi because he planned her wedding. He was so involved in Kandi’s stuff that he didn’t go to his mother’s wedding or birthday celebration. Kandi acknowledges that he is important part of her team but she wants to check his ego. I hope he doesn’t start preparing his resume because Kandi needs him and would probably miss him if he goes. I hope she at least offers him a good retirement plan with good health and dental insurance
Phaedra is with Aiden at the humane society to adopt a puppy. He is losing a father and gaining a dog.
Don Juan is sitting down with Todd to discuss their roles. Todd brings to Kandi’s attention Don Juan’s shortcomings. Don wants to point out what was accomplished before Todd came along. He makes a good point. Todd is coming in and criticizing the team. He thinks Don’s goal is should be to improve his delegation skills and Don is realizing he is right. I think there was a miscommunication to begin with.
Kandi and Kenya are taking a boxing class. Kandi is going to apologize to Kenya to get it off her chest that she didn’t believe in Kenya. Kenya is relieved and thankful. Kandi then reports that Nene and Phaedra thinks Apollo apologized in order to hurt Phaedra. Kenya gets upset and starts crying. Kandi is uncomfortable. Kenya pushes the camera away. I thought that was a no-no. Kandi must have been awkward standing in the bathroom stall with a crying Kenya. I hope her bladder isn’t full. Therapeutic communication, listening and touch therapy helps in these situations.
Slut-shaming sucks, Kenya. Kenya thinks Nene turned on her. You tried to take away Nene’s Queen of the Atlanta Housewives crown away and you gotta face the consequences.
Happy Birthday Blueskyforever
