Gia Giudice’s 3KT Releases “Season of Joy”
Real Housewives of Atlanta – New York and Hair Burglar
It is the start of the episode and Nene is still screaming at Cynthia at the restaurant. She is pointing her finger, asking why Cynthia accuses Nene of being a bad friend in front of people who could care less if they were friends or not, and then she gets up to leave. Nene is shocked and appalled that Cynthia tried to blindside her. Phaedra has never seen Nene this emotional so it must really hurt her. When Nene comes back, the ladies decide to leave Cynthia and Nene to talk by themselves. I guess the dinner was the stale crackers. Cynthia thinks the “Peter is a bitch” comment was where the friendship went downhill. Nene asks why Cynthia months later after hanging out decides to end the friendship. Cynthia wonders if they both have gone too far and if it is too late to continue to be friends. Nene wants to move on. They give each other a hug. It’s a very long tearful hug. Cynthia is optimistic that they can get their friendship on track meanwhile Nene has a difficult time letting people she had a falling out with get close again. I don’t think the dynamics change that much on the show if they are friends or not. It wouldn’t matter if they talk about how great their friendship is or how crappy their friendship is. They’re still talking about each other.
Todd and Kandi are face-timing because Todd is in New York and Kandi is still in Atlanta. The reflection off Kandi’s laptop makes Todd’s hair look like a golden afro. Sharon is still pissed about what Joyce called her. Todd wants Kandi to come to New York to show her da Bronx and try to fix some of the mama drama. Cynthia will be in New York for fashion week so it is a perfect trip to film as a housewife.
Derek J has an appointment with Phaedra for a legal matter. Derek J is being accused of stealing some woman’s hair by doing a fake hair and switch. Phaedra says Derek J is becoming a more recognized celebrity so people will try to take advantage of him. Phaedra is happy to represent him because she wouldn’t want him to take on the name “Hair Burglar.” She tells him they will talk about courtroom attire later. I wonder if she wants to talk about it later because he would show up looking like a Fabulous Fashion Queen Fashionista or if she wants him to look more serious, conservative Testosteronista. Appearances do matter in the courtroom.
Nene is telling Greg to take vitamin c for his immune system because he sounds sick. It’s hard for Nene to make boiled water for tea in his toilet shaped mug because she is unsure what button to push. Nene tells Gregg that she spoke to Cynthia to talk about their issues. Gregg thinks they both miss the other. Nene is not ready to sit down and talk to Cynthia about what happened. Nene says Peter has been attacking her on social media. Nene complains that if she calls Peter names, Cynthia has a problem but Nene thinks Peter shouldn’t act like what he’s been called. Just say he is acting like a bitch. It’s already out there.
Cynthia is hesitant to tell Peter that Nene and she made up. Peter thinks Cynthia is crazy and isn’t happy about Nene and Cynthia’s détente. Peter is being “like a bitch” when he doesn’t want to compete with Nene and Cynthia’s friendship. Peter has noticed how much sex they were having since Nene has been out of the picture. Now Cynthia has been happy and over the moon since Nene and her made up. I thought it was the fibroids that dampened their sex life. Was it really Nene all along? That’s weird. Peter doesn’t want Cynthia to look like a punk and he tells her to address things with Nene. I don’t think Cynthia should let her relationship with Nene affect her relationship with Peter and vice versa. Peter should really stop sticking his nose in housewives’ business. He’s looking like the “Simon” of the group. It’s fine for him to make comments and give his opinion to his wife but ultimately Cynthia is the one that deals with the women on the show.
Todd and Kandi are walking around New York City which is the best mode of transport there. They go down into the subway. Hold your noses and keep your valuables close. Kandi says she has been to da Bronx before. She knows how to act. Todd shows her literally his old school which looks like a jail because of the bars and metal nets on the window. They get some New York pizza. Yum! They get some Timberland boots and a Yankee hat to make them look like they are from da Bronx. I bought a pair of Tims once. I never had to worry about slipping on a patch of ice wearing Tims. They had great traction.
Cynthia loves New York fashion week. She goes to meet Kithe Brewster a stylist turned fashion designer. He wants Cynthia to close his fashion show. He measures her for a fitting and announces that Cynthia’s ass grew. Cynthia feels insecure about her butt, her weight and her walk. Cynthia feels she needs to practice her runway model walk after all the criticism she took from her so called friend. He looks like he could lose a few pounds too. I see her “grin and bear it” attitude comes from being a model.
Phaedra goes to visit Derek J’s salon to investigate what could have happened at the scene of the alleged “hair” crime. Derek sat Phaedra in the chair the lady sat in and he showed her that her hair was always in full view, no secret back room to hide the stolen weave.
Kandi, Todd, Cynthia and Peter go to Spice Market restaurant serving Southeast Asian cuisine in the Meatpacking District. They talk about Todd getting along with Mama Joyce and now it’s time for the mother-in-laws to get along. Sharon is still sore over getting called a prostitute and Todd’s father getting called a pimp. Peter’s mom is still sore over the marriage certificate drama and Peter & Cynthia have a minor row over that. Kandi wants to sweep everything under the rug without holding Joyce accountable for her unfounded accusations. Todd doesn’t think it is right.
Claudia and Kenya take a cooking course and kind of makes double entendres during the dessert making. Peaches and grand marnier over ice cream and biscuits sound yum!
Kenya traveled to New York to Cynthia in the fashion show. Kandi, Kenya, Peter & Todd watch Cynthia walk in the show. Cynthia looked fab in the red dress. She is happy with her walk and is ready to celebrate.
Kandi and Todd go to Sammy’s Fish Box for some seafood dinner. Todd asks his mom when she is going down to Atlanta. Sharon doesn’t want to live in Atlanta because of Joyce. Sharon said check her resume, she was never a prostitute. Well that proves she was never a prostitute because prostitutes wouldn’t need a resume anyway. Sharon is upset that Joyce lied about her before the start of Todd and Kandi’s marriage. Sharon accused Kandi of lying saying her mother never called Sharon a ho and a prostitute. Kandi tries to defend the situation saying Joyce calls everyone names. Todd wants to confront the situation. Kandi doesn’t care what anyone thinks about Joyce, she is still her mother and she is not going to diss her mother or let anyone diss her. Sharon gets up and grabs the salt to shake on her food. She threatens to punch Joyce in the mouth and looks really upset. I think they are getting angry over nothing because if everyone understands how Joyce is, they wouldn’t pay attention to anything she says anyway. Sharon is drinking a bunch of fruity drinks and getting more heated. In hindsight, I’m sure people watching would have liked her to put down the salt, put away the drinks and not get so spitting angry over the stuff that comes out of Joyce’s mouth.
