The Real Housewives of Atlanta aired the 11th episode of it’s explosive 7th season last night (January 18, 2015).
During this week’s episode, appropriately titled ‘Divide & Ki-Ki,’ the ladies continue their visit to Puerto Rico and the episode picks up as the ladies all ‘divided’ during dinner last week. Miraculously enough, hey all end up apologizing to each other and Ki-Ki-ing during a ‘do-over’ of Kandi’s (aka the peace keeper) sex party.
[Sidebar: For those of you not privy to gay lingo, ‘Ki-Ki’ is loosely defined as an expression of laughter or onomatopoeia for laughing, which extended to mean a gathering of friends for the purpose of gossiping and chit-chat. (Wiki Definition)]
Bravo synopsis of episode 11:
NeNe and Claudia conclude their disagreement at the dinner table, and the group is left completely divided in its wake. While some of the women are amused by the whole exchange, others feel as if they are being unfairly victimized.
Kandi hosts a beach party in hopes of bringing the women back together, but the peace is short lived on a bus ride to Demetria’s big performance. Claudia is pushed to her limits and reveals a shocking secret about Porsha’s personal affairs.
Recap + watch full video below…
Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia and Demetria have all banded together to try to ‘fight the power’ of the ‘beasts’ which include Nene, Phaedra, Porsha and sometimes Kandi, who seems to have adopted the position of middleman.
As the insults flew, ALL of the ladies laughed and ki-ki’d (including Kandi) but apparently it was Porsha’s ‘wide mouthed’ laugh that bothered Claudia the most.
I’m not gonna pick sides… then again, yes I will, Nene won that battle! Claudia threw out everything she’d read on the blawgs then ran around the corner with Kenya to accuse Nene of googling HER. I’m honestly over them both, but Claudia lost me when all of her color issues were revealed these past few days…
I said last week, and I’ll say it again, Nene was wrong as hell for some of the things she said, but so was Claudia. One can’t get a pass and not the other. But since Nene chose to apologize this week, she’s winning and the polls show it.
But I digress.
For the record, Demetria was a done deal for a peach this season, but the dinner where Nene & Claudia battled basically sealed her fate.
Demetria started the chain reaction during dinner, as she lashed out as soon as the two opposing teams took their seats but it wasn’t really a good look for her.
After sleeping on it, it seems Demetria had a change of heard and decided to do what she should have done all along… have a one on one with Phaedra.
Demetria apologizes and the two seem to make amends, but as she’s leaving Phaedra manages to get yet another dig in on her fashions by pointing out that her underwear was noticeable (Demetria was wearing boy shorts with her sheer sundress… how dreadful!)
For the record, it doesn’t help matters that Demetria’s entire storyline is about Roger Bobb, who mysteriously distanced himself from the messy reality show after he realized that his TEA would be spilled all over cable television!
Demetria seems to think that her affiliation with Roger Bobb will help her career, but it seems to me that she managed to make his name more known than her own.
Kandi Gets a 2nd Chance Throw a Messy Bedroom Kandi Party…
Kandi is not only a great fence rider, she’s an awesome entrepreneur! This week, she uses her ‘peacemaker’ card to attempt to make amends for the drama she caused when her friend Gosha, spilled the tea about Claudia’s man.
Y’all know dayum well Kandi was in on all that! It was at her house, it was her friend and her husband and RHOA producer Carlos King are business partners.
Kandi’s position is solid and she’s playing for keeps… keeping her bank account supplied by playing the ‘double agent’ role this season.
But again… I digress.
Kandi hosts a Bedroom Kandi party in Puerto Rico on the beach and gives Claudia the match to ignite the bomb she’s been holding onto about Porsha’s married man by asking a few intimate questions like, ‘what do you say to your man while intimate to turn him on’.
Yet again, Kandi’s sex party serves a duel purpose. 1. To promote her dildos and 2. to create an environment for all the ladies to get together for drama.
While it appears everyone got along during their romp on the beach, Kenya and Claudia both managed to get what they needed to throw Porsha under the bus for her ‘THOT’ ful behavior.
“I couldn’t get a grip on Porsha’s dildo that she was holding between her legs cause I couldn’t get a good grip! She was holding on to that thing like it had bought her a Rolls Royce.” – Kenya
Nene Apologizes, Claudia Spills Porsha’s Tea…
During the bus ride to Demetria’s performance, Nene offers an olive branch to mend fences from the tumultuous dinner: She announces her new stint on Broadway and offers EVERYone tickets to the show.
Nen also apologizes to Claudia for ‘minimizing’ her accomplishments and other comments she made in anger. Claudia on the other hand, decides to go from zero to a hundred as she attempts to force the conversation (while both Kenya and Cynthia patted her on the leg and fed her the tea on their phones).
[Sidebar: I feel like Cynthia really wants to increase the peace, but she’s on a team full of thirst buckets who turn up when the camera turns on.]
Cynthia noted it, Kenya noted it, and Kandi noted it, stating:
Claudia doesn’t know how to let things go. Not to say that she should be grateful for that apology, but it’s a lot more than other people get.
When Porsha tries to diffuse the situation, Claudia takes to opportunity to ‘out’ her about her relationship status (Nene apologizes a 4th time as Claudia goes in on Porsha).
I’m all for the tea, but all seemed so misdirected to me! It’s like they (Kenya and Claudia) didn’t want to let the drama die and since Nene apologized, decided ‘let’s get Porsha!’
Claudia said she was mad about Porsha laughing at Nene’s statements, but Kandi laughed too. But since she’s the ‘middleman,’ I guess she’s off limits.
Whatever the case, Porsha’s married man tea was spilled and the rest is history.
If you watch that bus scene again, you might notice that they were ALL on their phones searching for ‘tea’ on each other… hilarious!
And last but not least… Demetria McKinney proves she can really sing but Roger Bobb shoulda been there….
