First things first… Kandi Burruss must have paid a mint for acting lessons for Mama Joyce because she is BRINGING it this season!
There’s lots of yelling, screaming and accusations hurled at Kandi’s fiance’, Todd Tucker and he’s not having it.
Phaedra Parks travels to Alabama to complete her mortuary studies while her husband Apollo Nida turns to Peter Thomas for a bit of marital advice.
Cynthia Bailey learns that her daughter Noelle has a boyfriend named Arthur, and after having a heart to heart with Nene Leakes, Cynthia promptly makes moves to keep an eye on her daughter’s young lovelife.
Meanwhile, Porsha Stewart is adjusting to the single life and has crowned herself ‘Emperor’ of Atlanta, while her mom is still treating her like a princess.
And Kenya Moore? Miss Ratchet USA has finally moved out of her low budget hotel after finding her another rental outside Atlanta city limits. Her “friend” Lawrence Washington makes a special appearance since it’s blatantly obvious none of the other ladies care to film with her.
Read the 5 Life Lessons revealed during RHOA Season 6, Episode 5 below + watch full episode:
Life Lesson #1 – Silence is golden…
After their date last week, Phaedra Parks gives her husband the silent treatment. She packs up Mr. President and (one of) the nannies and heads to Alabama to study for her upcoming mortuary exam.
When he spots Apollo’s gucci gear, Peter tells him that he’s gonna have to start “dressing down, and dress her up”… i.e. spend some dough to make her happy.
For once, we see that Peter may actually know what it takes to make a relationship last.
Life Lesson #2 – An ‘emperor’ is the MALE ruler of an empire…
[SIDEBAR: Hold up… wait. Is Porsha tryna pull a
JoJo Dancer Joseline Hernandez on us? Those gay rumors swirled around her ex-husband Kordell, but maybe we were missing the fact that Porsha could be the one who’s gender is “questionable”. But I digress…]
Meanwhile, Porsha’s half-sister Lauren pressures her to look for her own apartment but it seems Porsha is set on staying home with Mom for a the long haul.
Life Lesson #3 – Parental advisory suggested during teen dating…
Arthur and his mom have a lil pow wow with Cynthia and Peter. Peter plays hardball but Noelle simply laughs it off. The lovebirds get a little alone time while the parents discuss their strategy.
It seems that Arthur is a nice young man with good intentions but Cynthia wants to make sure Noelle isn’t moving too fast. The parents all agree that the kids can spend time together, but there will be a quite a bit of parental supervision involved.
Good luck with that….
Life Lesson #4 – You can’t force friendships…
It’s got to be a hard life lesson to find that you aren’t as ‘fabulous’ as you think you are.
The former beauty queen is having serious trouble adjusting to life in Atlanta. It seems her “job” of being the “wild card” on the show has tarnished her image beyond repair and no one wants to deal with her.
Fortunately for her, that embarrassing eviction is over and she’s moved past her low-budget hotel room and has found a homeowner willing to let her use their empty rental property for the show.
“Fashion Queen” Lawrence Washington makes an appearance to “help” Kenya get settled into her new rental. Rental furniture, rental home, rental friends… yeah… things are all bad for Miss Kenya, but the money must be all good to make her embarrass herself on a weekly basis.
Again… I digress.
Life Lesson #5 – Sometimes Mamas DON’T know best…
Kandi coordinates a dinner between she, Mama Joyce and Todd so that they can finally hash things out. Mama Joyce returns with the same ol’ drama, but this week, she’s got the cackle down pat!
Mama Joyce accuses Todd of being an opportunist and has more to say about Kandi’s engagement ring. Mama Joyce seems to feels that Kandi knew Todd couldn’t afford a larger ring so she ‘downgraded’ herself to be with him. She still says Kandi deserves a “provider” even though she’s a multi-millionaire.
Todd says he IS a provider. He provides love, happiness & stability but Mama Joyce feels that ‘stability’ can’t pay the bills.
Kandi is stuck in the middle between her mom and her man and she is NOT pleased.
Will Todd sign a pre-nup now that Mama Joyce is demanding it?
