Real Housewives of Atlanta – Awkward Hug!
Kandi and Todd are going to a family barbecue where the family is talking about the torn up house that Joyce’s boyfriend still hasn’t fixed. Kandi thinks it is funny that Todd hasn’t done anything but Joyce’s boyfriend ripped out the bathrooms in the house without telling Kandi. Joyce doesn’t appreciate being talked about and threatens to live in the house that has no bathrooms. As long as she doesn’t mind getting up in the morning and pee in a hole in the floor, sure why not? Kandi just came back from NY defending her mother from Sharon. Joyce says Kandi hurts the people that help her. I guess she has to take the good with the bad. One of the aunts pulls Kandi to the side to talk to Joyce. When Kandi brings up the torn up bathrooms, Joyce tells her she is taking medicine to prevent an aneurysm so she doesn’t want to argue. Holy cow, she can say and do whatever she wants and when confronted will always play the aneurysm and age card.
Cynthia is at the Bailey Agency with Demetria McKinney, an actress and singer, that is shooting a video. McKinney wants a fly, chocolate, 6ft 5in dude for her video. Peter strolls in because he likes to be on camera and gossip. Demetria is dating her manager, Roger Bobb and wants people to know about it. Apparently there was a picture of Kenya and Roger Bobb at Peter’s birthday with Cynthia and the gossip blogs assumed Kenya and Roger had a thing. Claudia wants to put a stop on those mouths and hang a property of Demetria sign on Roger Bobb. Apparently people don’t just call him Roger, like Madonna or Cher, but everyone calls him Roger Bobb. Claudia has been seeing Roger Bobb for 8 years and Cynthia was surprised because Roger Bobb never said he had a steady girlfriend.
Kenya is modeling at a photo shoot. She wants to get publicity photos so she can get back into acting and producing. Cynthia is helping her out with her poses and looks. Claudia struts in and Kenya takes a break to chat. Can you get a ticket when you’re driving and on your cell phone in Atlanta? Apparently Claudia needs her GPS on her cell to get around Atlanta and she is holding it while she driving. Hope someone gets her a cell phone car mount for Christmas. Kenya wants to form a Sex and the City group. Too bad she didn’t get along with Phaedra because she’d make a good Miranda. They talk about Roger Bobb being a good catch and Cynthia puts the brakes on that. She was told Demetria has been dating Roger Bobb for 8 years. Kenya is puzzled because some of her girlfriends have dated Roger Bobb. Cynthia is giving Kenya the heads up about not addressing the rumors that Roger Bobb and her are dating. Kenya already has a lot of fake boyfriends. Ahem, Walter the tow truck guy. It is hard to keep track.
Nene is trying to sell her clothes on HSN. She sells a peek-a-boo shoulder tunic that you could get at H&M. Nene has to be high energy at midnight when she is used to going to sleep. Nene is wearing a wig in her TH that looks like straw. She could be the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. She wakes up when she hears her tunics have sold out.
Phaedra is at Kandi’s house. Kandi is eating healthy because she is trying to get pregnant. Kandi asks about Apollo and their relationship. Phaedra doesn’t talk to Apollo but no one knows if Phaedra is giving him the cold shoulder or Apollo is moody and not at home. Kandi asks her cousin Melvin whose father has been to prison for advice. He tells Phaedra to be honest because you don’t want your child to resent you for being lied to. Melvin has been to prison as well and he confirms Phaedra’s fears that her children will think that people going to jail is normal. Melvin thinks jail is something that happens. Melvin wants to be a child psychologist so let’s hope nothing comes between his dreams. It’s understandable that Phaedra is nervous about how their father’s actions could negatively affect her sons’ lives and shape their view of the world.
Kenya has a meeting with Roger Bobb to talk about an actor-producing gig she wants to corroborate with him. Roger Bobb wants to make things happen for her. Kenya asks him if he is dating Demetria. He confirms that Demetria is his lady. Kenya has a fake smile plastered on her face because it looks like an opportunity for drama was lost.
Claudia complains about her single life when she likes getting licks on her arm from her cat. Peter tells her as long as her arm is the only thing her cat licks.
The party to debut Demetria’s music video is on. Derek J is on the step and repeat wearing what looks like Nene’s peek-a-boo shoulder tunic. Kandi and Phaedra look like they are wearing the same purple lipstick that has blue undertones. You need very white teeth to pull that off and with the lights of the nightclub makes the lipstick even more blue. Claudia tells Demetria that she saw her boyfriend Roger Bobb. Demetria tells her that Roger Bobb wasn’t able to attend her party. Porsha shows up and she seems to know Demetria too. Kenya shows up and is disappointed to hear that Roger Bobb isn’t there to introduce her to business partners and potential boyfriends/ husbands. Demetria’s side boob is about to come out of her dress. Hope she got a lot of boob glue. Demetria talks to Kenya and announces she is dating Roger Bobb. She brings up the rumors of Kenya dating Roger Bobb. Kenya sets it straight and Demetria is chill. Kenya apparently knows about Roger Bobb’s way with the ladies and wishes Demetria a lot of luck.
It’s time for Apollo’s entrance. Brandon hugs Apollo and puts his animosity aside. He probably feels bad he is going to jail. Andy on WWHL said there is a scene that is very uncomfortable and hard to watch. For those that are just reading the blog and not watching the show, I will try to paint a picture for you. Apollo calls Phaedra’s name twice as he is sitting on the other side of a coffee table in the middle of a night club. He asks her to sit next to him. They haven’t been in a communicating mood so now he wants to talk.
He talks to her and Phaedra isn’t facing him or talking to him. He wants to work on the marriage even though a few episodes back he was talking to a divorce attorney. His behavior seems unpredictable. He has been physically aggressive on the show before. Phaedra finally faces him and tells him he doesn’t need to start a conversation at a nightclub. He tries to hug her. Kenya is enjoying watching Phaedra and Apollo. Phaedra looks uncomfortable, is about to cry, her body language looks like she is shut down while Apollo is talking to her with his arms around her in front of their friends in a crowded nightclub. Phaedra says love is a verb and not a noun. There are some technical difficulties with Demetria’s music video debut; there is no sound, so everyone decides to leave. Apollo seems to want to do anything and everything on camera to piss Phaedra off. He is being a petulant child.
