I hope all of your holiday shopping is done and you’re ready for Christmas!
This week continues the end of the argument. Kenya harps on the fact that Porsha calls her a tramp – calling her out of her name, but she quickly forgets that she called Porsha out of her name first – a bitch. Porsha says that she’s the more mature of the two. I’m not sure if that’s true because she also engaged in the argument. As always, Kenya bitches to Walter and he seems not to care in the slightest.
As much as Kenya is a part of history, no one remembers number 2, they always remember number 1. People remember Vanessa Williams, but will probably forget Kenya’s name as soon as she’s off this show.
Nene stops by Kandi’s room to dish on the previous night’s happening, and the ladies end up making up from all of their past drama. Since neither of the women have ever really been together, they realize that they are basing their impressions on hearsay. This looks like the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
The group (without Todd) get ready for a day at the beach, but first, Kenya must make a public apology to the girls. I would find the apology more heartfelt if it was just between her and Porsha since the other women were just witnesses to her nonsense. Kenya, aka the “Mean Raisin” dubbed by Porsha, says that the conversation escalated when Porsha called her a tramp – even though she called Porsha a bitch first. Well, I guess a couple of days can’t make someone change. Nene was straight forward – Kenya’s “apology” wasn’t an apology – one wasn’t given and one wasn’t accepted.
I do appreciate Peter going inside and trying to stop the women to go have fun – albeit being shot down quick.
The group’s outing started out on a beautiful lunch on a dock where the water runs over your toes. That looks refreshing. Attention seeking Kenya hands Cynthia a book about and by Vanessa Williams, the day after her wedding vows and the argument with Porsha. She’s trying to make a point about the age difference between Vanessa and herself and that Vanessa was the first national pageant winner, but unfortunately, NO ONE CARES!
Nene and Gregg are dating now that they are divorced. It’s cute and nice to see the couple be nice and loving to each other.
Cynthia decides to use the opportunity to confront Kenya about the Bailey Agency open call. Kenya reiterates that she attended her first pageant review and someone pulled her aside and told her how inappropriate she was dressed. Yet again, Kenya seems to miss that she did not once pull anyone aside, but instead yelled at them in front of a room full of people. When Cynthia tries to explain it to Kenya, she falls out in the sand. Kenya says she gets it, but follows it up with saying, she’s going to give Cynthia another chance – to do what? I don’t know. I didn’t know Cynthia offended her by asking her not to yell at her attendees. Anyway, both women made up – for now.
Nene shows the women “zen, aerobic and get[ting] hood” all at the same time – exercising sexily on the beach. The women are having a great time!
The evening arrives and the group has reached their destination, clean and dressed up. It’s the last night in Anguilla. Kenya lays on the want of a proposal thick – Walter asks for multiple drinks. Peter outs the fact that Walter is supposed to propose to Kenya by the end of the trip, after stating that he didn’t realize that they were a real couple. Kenya seems uncomfortable that this information was made public. Walter seems extremely surprised that Kenya was expecting something during this trip.
Then, Kenya brings up the subject of proposals – asking Todd how he’ll propose to Kandi. Kandi puts a stop to it because she loves surprises. Each of the women shares their proposal stories. Kenya starts feeling uncomfortable as the women get excited reminiscing about their proposals. Kenya asks Phaedra how she “got” Apollo to propose. Nene tells it right – you can’t force a man on an engagement. Kenya tries to convince the others that her way (pressuring him to propose) is the right way and seems disappointed that no one agrees.
Kenya leaves the table upset. Walter shows that he cared for the first time on the show. As he talks to her, he finally tells her that he didn’t have any intention of proposing to her on this vacation. She says she knows what she heard, felt and was expecting. The problem is that she didn’t know what was said. He never said that he was going to propose. He may not have been clear on his intentions, but he just responded to everything she asked. He never said he wanted to marry her! She storms away crying and Walter’s response is back to his old self – “make sure she gets on the bus alright”.
Kenya runs out into the woods and bawls trying to understand what just happened. This is the first time I feel bad for her. Either she’s a great actress or she really heard him for the first time. Based on recent reports, this was all a set up. So, she must be a great actress. Nene tells Walter honestly that his words can be misleading. Walter again doesn’t seem to care.
Phaedra finds Kenya in the woods and comforts her. Phaedra is a good friend, and Apollo is a good husband, following Phaedra outside to make sure that Phaedra wasn’t alone. They both give Kenya some words of encouragement and advice, and Kenya feels better.
Do you think Kenya and Walter’s relationship is real?
Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day!
