Last week we witnessed some RI-DIC-U-LOUS foolishness between Apollo, Brandon, Kenya, Natalie and Christopher. Considering that blows were actually landed, I’m surprised more damage wasn’t done. We come back seeing everything die down, but we’ve also seen the previews where Kandi pops off. So what the heck happened?
Apollo and Phaedra are on their way out, NeNe is chasing Kenya around trying to get her to apologize. For some reason, Apollo circles back to Brandon. That’s quickly resolved, as Peter restrains Apollo and Greg walks Brandon out. Meanwhile Chuck stands behind Mynique. Porsha and Lauren take off because Porsha starts seeing spirits in people’s faces.
In the midst of Chris apologizing to NeNe for partially starting the drama, he manages to bring up the situation between Kenya and Natalie and why Kenya would be so involved in their relationship. This strikes a chord with Kandi, and she jumps in about how Natalie was all up in her and Todd’s business the same way, saying he was an opportunist.
Here’s where it gets a little weird. Cynthia jumps up to defend Natalie, and since Cynthia is probably close to a foot taller than Kandi and starts waving her hands around, Kandi starts getting a little heated. Then Peter jumps in the picture asking some questions, the boys push each other, and Malorie pushes Kandi. That sets Kandi COMPLETELY off! I don’t need to explain it, because if you’ve seen any preview in the last week, it’s clear how Kandi acted. Kandi realizes she’s out of control and leaves willingly. Peter and Todd talk out their differences, and now are cool. Everyone seems to be calming down, and the evening comes to an abrupt end.
I’m a “don’t start none and won’t be none”-type of gal, but if you start some, I’m going to finish it. ~Kandi
Everyone wakes up to rehashing the previous night’s events. Todd diffuses the situation in his house by joking that he almost saw someone’s titty. Kandi is remorseful because of how out of control she got. She knew she had gone too far and probably made Cynthia think differently about her (which she is correct).
NeNe and Gregg stop over Peter and Cynthia’s place and NeNe talks about how she has to go see a therapist because it was so dramatic. At Kenya’s house, Brandon talked about how he could press charges because Apollo broke his rib and gave him a shiner but won’t do it because of the kids. I don’t know if you really wanted to press charges that would be an excuse, but kudos to him for trying to be nice. He certainly didn’t have to be.
We finally get to see and talk about something else ~ Kandi’s open call for A Mother’s Love ~ the stage play. Atlanta’s finest come out to sing and unfortunately ain’t nothing fine about it. A full day of auditions, packed house, 400+ people and only potentially two may be in the play.
After a few days, Kandi invited all women out for a day of rest and relaxation. Porsha admits that she’s there for a free massage. Kenya is not ready to be in the room with Phaedra (but likely also wants to take advantage of the free massage too (no hating, I would be there too)). NeNe feels slighted considering no one has called to apologize yet Brandon found a her number and (I’m assuming) texted an apology. The girls split in two and had for two different types of massages ~ one for the back, the other for the feet.
Then the girls come together to have some tea after this very relaxing day. Kandi feels the obvious tension between herself and Cynthia. Kandi reaches out and apologizes to everyone for her behavior. Of course, Kenya is the first person to ask “What happened? What did I miss?” All that drama that there was, do you really need to get more negativity in your life?
Cynthia begins to apologize, but it goes kinda sideways, blaming Kandi in her apology. They can’t agree on what actually happened during the evening. Nonetheless, Cynthia apologizes for her AND Malorie’s behavior and the girls quash it.
Phaedra of course changes the subject ~ talking about tea bag breaking in the water. You know she’s good at that. Kenya is very offended that Phaedra did not apologize to Kenya up for the drama. Although I don’t know why Kenya is offended, the fight was between Apollo and Brandon, which neither name starts or ends with Phaedra or Kenya. It was nice of Cynthia to apologize on behalf of Malorie, but not necessary, yet Cynthia was actually a PART of that fight.
Phaedra is disappointed of how black women are being portrayed by this whole situation. I feel you, but HUH? Where did that come from?
NeNe just can’t let it go. She blames the entire fight on Kenya, stating that Kenya getting up was what set everything off. Kenya is not willing to apologize because it seems that she feels if she apologizes for her role, she’s faulting herself for the entire evening. Such a childish thought process. No one blames her for Apollo’s craziness, but she has to admit that standing up when everyone is seated and walking over to someone is sitting down on the other side of the room is a hostile action. The person she should’ve been confronting was Christopher. Granted, I don’t know why she even cares what Christopher called Natalie 20 years ago. I’m not even sure why Natalie cares. And it wasn’t exactly a derogatory title ~ girlfriend and common-law wife are hardly terms that say he didn’t like her. Since there’s no time frame of reference, she may have been his girlfriend at the time, and given her a bump-up by saying that she was his common law wife (before they were actually married). But again? Who cares?
After all is said and done, another dramatic mess took place with Kenya as the epicenter, and her fierce denials that it had anything to do with her. I guess on top of Gone with the Wind Fabulous, and insulting Phaedra at every pass, she’s adding causing drama and then pretending like she’s innocent to the mix.
Next week is Kenya’s charity function where the drama clearly continues. See you then!
Do you think the fight would’ve broken out without Kenya getting up? Do you think that she caused the fight? Do you think the tension in the room from NeNe’s questions was enough to get this type of reaction?
