Cynthia Bailey is still boarding her sister Mallory, Kenya Moore is still dating an imaginary African, Porsha Stewart is still adjusting to life without Kordell and Nene Leakes is still stirring the pot.
Just FYI, last week’s drama filled episode broke ‘housewives’ franchise records with 4.5 million viewers!
Executive producer Carlos King proudly tweeted about the record-breaking episode, stating:
I am blessed. I am humbled. I am at a loss of words for the record breaking success of Real Housewives of Atlanta for not only Bravo but for the housewives franchise. 4.5 million viewers is a great accomplishment and we are only halfway through the season! Thanks to the cast, crew and viewers. I promise you all this is only the beginning.
That being said, check out the 5 life lessons revealed on this week’s episode of the popular reality show below + watch the full episode:
LIFE LESSON #1 – Leave the past in the past (especially if you have a small wiener)…
When Phaedra brings up her trip to Athens with Nene and Chuck, she recounts the blow up where Smith referred to himself as ‘The Big Homie’. Kandi immediately insinuates that he’s actually a ‘Little Homie” while Parks refers to Smith’s member as a ‘bite sized brownie’ and a ‘cocktail sausage’.
The ladies both agree that Chuck’s outburst was totally immature and that he’s merely using both of their names to bring up his own stock.
LIFE LESSON #2 – Never discuss your relationship with your sister (especially when you know doesn’t like your husband)…
Even after last week’s blow up, it seems Bailey still hasn’t learned her lesson about confiding in Mallory about Peter and when he comes home, the THREE of them have a discussion about their sex life (or lack thereof).
Peter admits that there will be no sex when they can’t even have a conversation with each other and Cynthia says that she’s about to make some changes to make that happen.
The entire conversation occurs while Mallory looks on and I’m almost positive she’s going to bring it up again during her 2 month stay.
LIFE LESSON #3 – When you have no friends, invite your Dad to town…
As soon as he gets in the car at the airport, Moore’s father goes in on her feet. When they get to Kenya’s new rental home, Moore’s father immediately voices his dislike of her hardwood floors.
But it doesn’t stop there… when Kenya tries to have a heart to heart with her dad about reaching out to her estranged mother, he shuts that down completely! Telling her to forget about it and let it go.
I think Kenya would do better seeing a therapist than participating in a reality show. She’s scarred and dealing with some real deep rooted issues that have clearly affected her decision making skills over the years.
LIFE LESSON #4 – When it’s over, it’s over, but not until there’s a dollar amount for the settlement…
This divorce clearly isn’t going to be easy, but she’s pressing through and agrees to consider exactly how much money she wants to get her divorce over and done with.
How much is less than 2 years of marriage worth exactly? Do you calculate the hours you cooked and cleaned and multiply it by an hourly wage?
Whatever the case, these are things that Porsha has to consider before coming up with a figure. Stay tuned.
LIFE LESSON #5 – When all else fails fake a boyfriend….
The two friends come bearing gifts as well… a ton of shade!
When the ladies spot a Bentley in Kenya’s driveway, Nene asks about it and says she knows Kenya is broke.
Cynthia manages to throw even more shade in her confessional, stating:
LIFE LESSON #6 – If you have a ‘bad friend’ let em know it!
Nene has told Porsha on more than one occasion that she feels Porsha doesn’t really value her friendship and when she finds out that Porsha has moved around the corner and didn’t even tell her, she tells her again.
For some reason, Porsha didn’t want the ladies to tell Nene that she’d moved into her neighborhood (as if she wouldn’t find out eventually).
When the ladies get together at The Bailey Agency for Mallory’s jewelry party, the information is revealed and when Nene lets Porsha have it, Porsha can’t stand the heat and walks out in tears.
Nene and Porsha make amends, but not before scene stealing Kenya decides that’s her cue to make a scene and exit.
