Melissa’s Thoughts: 

We're right there with your  skeptical glance for tonight's episode Kandi

We’re right there with your skeptical glance for tonight’s episode Kandi

OK, yes I’m still playing catch up before I jet (rather train) back to DC for the week.  Fortunately for me, my pre-travel treat awaits…  I get to relax with my last little slice of ATL happiness waiting on my DVR for love and affection… and maybe some snarky banter.  I mean come on, we get to see Kenya’s new digs which according to previews leaves NeNe a bit skeeved… and that woman was a stripper so you know she’s dealt with some sleeve in her day!!  Let’s top off our glasses and unwrap the crazy like a present we’ve been waiting all week for… Cheers!

Texting Truths

Kenya shows of how pole moves can early be translated to scarves.

Kenya shows of how pole moves can early be translated to scarves.

Let’s check back in with Keyna at Sky Gym to work out her stress of searching for a new home.  Of course she’s trying to go all GWTWF with her ropes and coyly informs us she’s no stranger to having her legs up in the air upside down.  Yeah, you’re so sexy and adventurous sweetie.  HA, Kandi is ready for the wind to blow away.  Oh I’m so excited I get a little Kandi action.  Oh no Kandi, you fell out of your heels?  Man, I thought I was the only one who walks out of a shoe.  Well at least I’m in good company.  Aw, look at you being supportive of Kenya, but that’s right you also make sure you get the texting answers for the rest of us.  Finally we get to see the text messages from Kenya’s phone, but what’s with trying to throw some shade that Kandi should be worried about Todd’s texts… say what now?  Well, there’s the text according to Kenya’s phone and it’s all straight up and nothing strange is going on… I mean of COURSE you can’t delete a line or two in a text chain.  NOT AT ALL!  I’m still going to call that there’s something hinky happening there {sideways skeptical glance}.

The Ring Don’t Mean a Thing

It's a bad session when your therapist can't hide her sideways skeptical glance.

It’s a bad session Porsha when your therapist can’t hide her sideways skeptical glance.

Porsha is back for some therapy and yes, we all know how I feel about televised therapy.  I just don’t understand why I must be subjected to therapy sessions.  Anyway, clearly my rants won’t make it stop.  Porsha lost her voice with Kordell and was playing a role.  Ya think sweetie??  She figured if she played the role that everything was good it would be.  Yes, we all see that for the unrealistic view it is, but remember this is also the girl who thought there were 265 days in a year, so there’s some wiggle room for outrageous ideas.  Here we go again with the fake it ‘til we make it approach to marriage… come on woman!  So it seems Porsha’s name wasn’t on anything… house, bank account, etc.  I can’t say I’m shocked, what I am socked about was why she didn’t ask for it to be.  She thought that’s what it meant to have a husband.  OK, I’m going to have to suggest girlfriend watch herself a little Eddie Murphy Raw:  “Give me half, Eddie. Give me half, Mr. Fuck-you Man”.  Porsha trusted her father to provide for her so the projected that onto Kordell.  She wanted a husband, security and a family so that’s why she married Kordell.  I guess on some level that’s an acceptable approach to live.  Personally I’m all for making your own way and being able to take care of yourself.  Porsha claims to want closure, but won’t take her ring off?  Looks like she’s not too focused on closure if you ask me.

Bedside Manner

NeNe pays a visit to a bedridden Cynthia to check in on her friend’s recovery and suggest they go shopping.  Cynthia though claiming to be sick managed to get herself into some make-up and curl her hair.  Methinks that means you can stop milking the situation.  You’re just going to have to deal with Peter and his apparent Viagra addiction.  Oh, and a quickie call from Kandi to check in as well.  Kandi dishes on Porsha’s emotional moment and thinks the ladies should get together to help cheer her up.

Diet Ditch

Phaedra's sideways skeptical glance about Kenya's "innocent" texts.

Phaedra’s sideways skeptical glance speaks volumes about Kenya’s “innocent” texts.

We meet up with Kandi at the yogurt bar to meet Phaedra to cheat on her diet and gossip.  Phaedra doesn’t have time lately do spend with anyone including Apollo which is maybe what’s causing a bit of the tensions in the house.  Kandi tells Phaedra she’s still trying to figure out a way to get Mamma Joyce and Todd together, unfortunately I think this is going to be a lost cause my dear.  Oh, it’s time to dish on the chat with Kenya.  Phaedra tells Kandi she thinks Kenya has whoreish tendencies and doesn’t want to give her any time.  Kandi tells Phaedra she read the text message and of course Phaedra tells Kandi she’s lying that she hasn’t seen Apollo because she saw him at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and he had to check out because Kenya kept coming to his room.  At the end of the day Phaedra wants nothing to do with her, and I’m inclined to agree it’s best to just let sleeping dogs lie.

Blow By Blow Awkwardness

Oh look who got herself out of bed!  She’s got the boys from the agency stopping by the house for a business meeting.  Oh no, Cynthia’s daughter has a friend… who is a boy.  Well, yep it’s a “boyfriend”, who she has kissed.  Oh I feel so uncomfortable for this girl having this conversation on national television.  You want her to be comfortable coming to you about anything?  Turn the cameras off and give the girl a smidge of privacy!  Cynthia wants the blow by blow… Yeah, let’s rephrase that so as to not put ideas in her head.

The Real Porsha

NeNe finally gets in on the action hearing Porsha's tale of the real state of her marriage.

NeNe finally gets in on the action hearing Porsha’s tale of the real state of her marriage.

Oh it’s the girlie day to get Porsha’s spirits back up.  Speaking of spirits, that bag of hers would get my spirits up.  Kandi knows Porsha can easily put on a happy face but hopes she’ll open up to the ladies and talk about it.  Porsha I guess finally feels comfortable with her ATL crew and dishes the dirt on her relationship with Kordell; she painted a happy couple picture but had to ask for money for groceries and anything else.  Porsha was Kordell’s princess and he told her when to shop and take the jet to get there.  Well, no wonder the girls is pissed she lost that.  My husband would give me a “have fun driving to the mall by yourself”.  She wasn’t allowed to have her sister to the house; she couldn’t make plans on her own and didn’t get her own money.  Now you know NeNe has her back hairs up over all that.  I don’t blame her, but let’s be honest for a second.  I’m all about sisters doing it for themselves, but let’s also recognize the fact the Porsha let herself be in that situation and I can guarantee if Kordell hadn’t filed for divorce she’d still be in her fake it ‘til we make it mode.  I know, you’re all going to get pissed off at me, but let’s be honest… she could have gotten out at any point.  You have to take accountability for your own actions in situations like this. Sweetie.  What you need to do now is move on.  Get yourself out of your Momma’s house and start fresh and make yourself happy first then figure out a relationship.  Seize the opportunity ahead of you.

Living Arrangements

Even the dog is desperate to get off the floor of Kenya's new "home".

Even the dog is desperate to get off the floor of Kenya’s new “home”.

NeNe is off to visit Kenya’s new hotel digs.  Oh my word… so since she lives in an apartment she just leaves dirty dishes in the sink?  Seriously woman, there’s a camera crew coming to your plea  pick it up a bit.  I think NeNe is afraid to sit on anything in that “2.3 star hotel”.  HA… genius NeNe!!  Thankfully NeNe has called her realtor to find a place for Kenya – this should be interesting.  Hang on, Kenya met a man in Nigeria?  When did she go to Nigeria?  Well at least Walter is off the hook now since her Nigerian man treats her like the queen she is.  So they take a left turn out of the ghetto to find Kenya something a little nicer than her former locale.  I’m thinking the Residence Inn is nicer than her previous digs.  Anywho, the place is all sparkly and clean and you wouldn’t feel like you’re risking the need for a tetanus shot walking barefoot from the bed to the bathroom.  This is much more up NeNe’s speed, so clearly you’re going to need to rent this 4000 square foot space if you ever want NeNe to do more than honk from the curb to pick your ass up.  Oh but Kenya can’t see herself living in less that 5000 square feet… um, that dorm space apartment fell shy of that mark honey and you looked like you settled in there.  NeNe isn’t sure if Kenya has sold enough videos to afford the penthouse condo but Kenya will still ask the cost of the unit while complaining it’s too small for her.  The ticket on this “small” space is 1.650M which Kenya thinks she can do better.  Of course she does.

Attention Seeking

It's like looking at one of those 3D posters… if you squint your skepticism you can see the truth.

It’s like looking at one of those 3D posters… if you squint your skepticism you can see the truth.

Aw look, it’s a date night for Apollo and Phaedra.  He suggests she’s “too distracted to be loving on him lately” and Phaedra counters asking if he’s jealous of his children.  She reminds him she’ll be finished with exams in 4 days and she can give him attention then.  A subpoena arrived at the old house for Phaedra but she decides to quickly change the subject to Kandi’s conversation with Kenya about the texts.  She’s sick of hearing about it but tells him Kenya claims nothing happened and she is innocent.  Apollo didn’t think he was crossing the line, but Phaedra reminds him he should be texting her friends.  He thinks she needs to lighten up and reminds her that SHE brought Kenya around.  The foot goes down as Phaedra tells him he’s not to do it again.  Apollo tells her he’s done nothing inappropriate, but she questions what happened in LA.  Oh boy!  Here we go Apollo, time to set the record straight with the judge and jury – aka Phaedra.  Did she just reference his “dangling”?  Really?  Apollo sets his side of the story straight… he saw her in LA.  From day 1 she was on him, and if he wanted to sleep with her he could have, but he didn’t, he never crossed those boundaries.  Kenya did follow him back to his hotel from a  party and  party and was “open”.  He chose not to hit that and left to go to another hotel.  The story still doesn’t sit well with Phaedra and she’s past the level of normal pistivity but unfortunately the chase car for the ride home lost the mic feed… DAMN!

Bottom Line:  Oh Phaedra is going to blow, and I just hope I’m stocked with pinot and popcorn to watch the fireworks.
