Real Housewives of Atlanta – And the Fight Continues Recap by RamonaCoaster
The argument still continues with Nene and Claudia. Claudia says Nene should worry about her own situation rather than googling her clitoris, bankruptcy and finances. Nene says Claudia wants what Nene has – a big check that bought her the designer dress she was wearing off the runway. Claudia points out they don’t make dresses in Nene’s size off the runway. That’s true. Nene brags about the cars in her garage and that Claudia wants that. My question is does Nene even own a garage? I’ve heard she has been leasing her houses. That is new money talking. Then its Claudia’s bob versus Nene’s hair hat. Kandi thinks Claudia has said everything anyone has ever thought about Nene. I’m beginning to see how Claudia got the Atlanta peach. Anyone who takes on Nene deserves it.
Kenya suggests to the ladies to take their drinks somewhere else. Somehow dinner was served in between all the verbal volleys. As Cynthia is leaving Nene pulls a mean girl act and tells her she likes her dress and as soon as Cynthia leaves, tells the other girl she looks like an old lady. Kenya says you can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a beast. Claudia apologizes to Demetria for messing up her event by getting on Nene’s level. Claudia just couldn’t take all the mocking from the other women.
While the other ladies leave, Nene, Porsha, Phaedra and Kandi stay at the table eating their food. Nene is making fun of Claudia’s dress, hair and being single and everyone is laughing at her shade. Nene says Claudia googled her but how did Nene know about the amount of Claudia’s bed partners, or bankruptcy or finances unless she has been researching her. Claudia pretty much gave her the same amount of respect that Nene gave her.
Kenya points out that Nene sees them in terms of teams meanwhile Nene thinks Kenya is telling the other women what to do. They all don’t like the double standard that Nene has set and the other ladies have followed.
When dealing with Nene and her mouth, no one ever wins. If you try to act like a lady and be above board, she will perceive you as weak. The only way is to hurl the shade back at her. Phaedra gives good reads and throws good shade, that’s why Nene is friends with her now because she cannot acquit herself well in a verbal fight. Also Phaedra gave Nene the ultimate compliment by calling her a megastar last season. Phaedra knew the right way to feed Nene’s ego. If Nene comes back for another season, she just might befriend Claudia and Kenya now because they both throw really good comebacks and will not back down from Nene or Naynay.
The next day Kandi is on the phone with Don Juan asking how the auditions are going for A Mother’s Love. The show has been revamped and they are taking it on the road and as usual, Don Juan is handling everything.
Nene does feel remorse for what happened the night before. Nene does tell Phaedra that she did give Demetria a lot of shade. Phaedra says she did not mean to throw shade or offend D. She thinks it is just her sense of humor. Now here is an interesting piece of information – Phaedra has been talking to someone until 4AM. I’m sure the mention of this someone will come into play in upcoming episodes.
Kandi, Porsha, Phaedra and Nene go shopping at Cartier to show what rich bitches they are and Porsha is eager to see what her new man could buy her.
Demetria talks to Phaedra and apologizes for bringing up Apollo. Phaedra gives her an excuse that it is just her sense of humor and she didn’t want to offend her. They hug and make up. Demetria needs to square it before her performance.
Kandi wants to redo her Bedroom Kandi Party so she invites the ladies on to the beach to start the party. Porsha talks a little bit about her boyfriend and she doesn’t like the distance. Nene is being coy talking about Porsha’s international boyfriend. They are really pointing out Nene’s double standards now.
Kandi wants to promote her dildos so she suggests a game of hot potato by passing a dildo to each other between their knees. Phaedra drops it first so she is out but she doesn’t mind not being proficient with dildos. It’s an opportunity for the women to throw shade at each other in the TH so Nene says dildos won’t work on someone who doesn’t have a clitoris and Kenya says she couldn’t get a good grip on her dildo because Porsha was holding on to it like a man gifting her a Rolls Royce. Nene wins the game because of strong knees and her skills with holding a dildo in between her legs.
The next day the two groups hang out separately so that they can make it to Demetria’s performance without fighting and with their weaves and wigs intact. Phaedra is back in her mesh dress. It’s not really an effective cover up. Nene says she wakes up every day wanting to get along with everyone but it doesn’t always work out that way. Nene says she would never take any accolades away from anyone. Isn’t that why she gets into most of her fights anyway? She called Claudia a whore but she won’t take any accolades away from her? There is some misplaced logic there.
Claudia, Kenya and Cynthia have the most smoking bodies out of all the Atlanta housewives. They flirt with the bartender and ask him to call his hot friends to come over.
They all meet on the bus to go to Demetria’s concert. Kenya jokes about going on stage with D. She points out that her single “Gone with the wind fabulous” was number 33 on itunes. Hopefully she’ll stay a one hit wonder.
Nene mentions how her accolades were taken away and she would never do that to another woman so to show her good side she is going to gift all her cast mates with two tickets to her Broadway show. Nice way to frame that announcement. She didn’t want her cast mates to not give her accolades over her new job on Broadway so that’s why mentioned it first. Cynthia says she supports all black women. Claudia then mentions her accolades were taken away from her and Nene says it was in defense of her saying the New Normal was canceled. Claudia puts out that Nene called her a whore. Nene starts being Nene and being defensive when she realizes Claudia is not going to back down so she does what Cynthia is surprised to hear from her – she apologizes. Cynthia thinks Claudia should just take the apology and run.
Claudia does think there is a double standard when Porsha found it entertaining when Nene called Claudia a whore meanwhile Porsha has been sleeping with a married African man in exchange for material things. Claudia says she would never put miles on her vagina. Nene thinks all the single women are sleeping with rich African men. Nene apologizes again and mentions her hair was not glued to her forehead. This was in retaliation for Claudia making fun of her wig.
Kenya of course brings Porsha’s sugar daddy up again. Porsha defends herself by telling her she does not know her personal business and she bought her own Rolls Royce with her hair company. Claudia points out that everyone there has a hair company. Porsha thinks her accolades are being taken away. Claudia thinks Porsha doesn’t know what accolade means. Claudia decides to leave all the animosity in the car.
They arrive at Demetria’s event late but do manage to catch one song. D introduces Da Brat who accompanies her in the song. Demetria sounds really good. It’s hard to tell if there are not a lot of people in the audience or if it is just the camera angle. Kandi thinks D would be a strong R&B singer, but not a pop star.
Happy Birthday Mrs. Peabody
