Now that Apollo has turned himself in to serve his 8 year bid, Phaedra has finally returned back to her home.
Phaedra admits that she’s fighting for her sanity after all the drama she’s been through and is trying to keep a stable and happy home for her two young sons.
After everything that’s gone on the past few months, she has decided to exorcise the home of all the demonic spirits and has a man of the cloth pray all of the negativity away.
Kandi and Todd are technically still newlyweds but it seems that their sex life has gone on a steep decline now that their married.
Blending their family wasn’t an issue, but now a failed tour, mother in-law drama and a death in the family seems to have created a division in the sheets.
Man… have you seen a lady at night with a bonnet on? The most thirstiest dude couldn’t get it up!
Todd and Kandi talk out their issues and they agree to go to counseling to see if that can solve their problems.
Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia aka ‘Team Petty’ get together for a wine tasting. Cynthia invites the ladies out so that she can share a bit of spicy information.
Their get-together starts with Kenya bringing up Apollo being ‘on the run’ (which he never was) and Cynthia takes that as an opportunity to drop the bomb out what she ‘heard’ about Phaedra.
[Sidebar: I’m so disappointed in Cynthia this season… *sigh*]
Cynthia then gives ‘Team Petty’ the ammunition they need for yet another ambush. If you recall, it was Cynthia who gave Claudia the info she needed to spill the tea about Porsha’s African man when her car documents came to Kordell’s address… who told Peter… who then told Cynthia… who told Claudia.
Now it’s the same thing yet again as Apollo told Peter about some ‘texts’ he saw from ‘Chocolate’ and Peter told Cynthia who tells Kenya and Claudia at this dinner.
It’s almost like that ‘telephone’ game we played in elementary school where one person would whisper something in your ear and by the time it got to the 20th person, the entire story was different.
Here’s a little background on the ‘Chocolate’ that was texting Pheadra. Whyte Chocolate is the name of Phaedra’s best friend, who happened to be the maid of honor in her wedding to Apollo. (Which is why I knowhe knew what he was doing.) Whyte Chocolate is also the stripper who was featured in Nelly’s infamous ‘Tip Drill’ video and is best known for that credit card swipe scene.
But I digress.
Kenya then took the opportunity to shed a few fake tears after becoming indignant about Pheadra’s rumored affair. No proof. No nothing. But they run with it…. (not a smart move).
Now that the dust has settled and Apollo is in custody, Kandi decides to pay a visit to her friend Phaedra.
During their one on one time, Kandi seems surprised when Phaedra reveals Nene (of all people) has been checking up on Phaedra daily and has been supportive during her time of need.
“If things ain’t going right with my money, I’m not really thinking about what anyone else is going through… “
Oddly enough, when Todd asked about finances, she said that all was well… with HER funds. But I digress.
Kandi has dropped the friend ball and feels somekindaway that Nene picked up where she should have. WhereDeyDoThatAt?
Whatever the case, Phaedra agrees to attend a group dinner but feels that her house has been exorcised, maybe she should do the same to her RHOA friends.
Everyone has a breaking point and it seems that Kenya Moore is the one person on the cast who knows how to take everyone over the edge.
Having pushed Porsha over the edge right after her divorce it seems Kenya has set her sights on yet another beat down.
When all of the ladies gather for dinner to reconnect, tempers flare as Cynthia tries to ‘lay it all on the table.’ As Bailey stutters through trying to spill news of Phaedra’s mystery man, Kenya picks up the pieces and goes in for the kill.
Moore confronts Phaedra about the illicit texts that Apollo shared with Peter (that she’s never seen) while Phaedra counters by reminding everyone that Apollo is the same person Kenya ‘claims’ lied about her texts.
Whatever the case, Kenya takes news of Phaedra’s ‘rumored’ affair and joyfully runs with it but she apparently caught Miss Parks on the WRONG DAY.
Porsha and Nene hold Phaedra back while Kandi sits in amazement. No one was expecting Phaedra to snap but hell…. it’s about time!
While I’m glad there wasn’t an actual ‘fight,’ it’s clear that with Phaedra being the 2nd to pounce on Kenya… it might just be Moore who’s the problem and not everyone else.
But again. I digress.
