The Real Housewives of Atlanta aired the 22nd episode of its dramatic 7th season last night (April 12, 2015).
Last week, the ladies were feeling all ‘peaceful’ after embarking on a zen getaway to the Philippines.
Well, this week episode is appropriately titled ‘Chasing Nay-Nay,’ as newbie Clawdia Jordan opts for a refund on her ‘peacemaker’ title. Order is restored as the ladies return to Atlanta and resume all the hateful antics they are known for.
The ladies return to Atlanta from the Philippines and immediately get back to work. Kenya is in the midst of shooting her pilot, Life Twirls On, as Cynthia strives to perfect her accent for the role as a Jamaican salon owner.
Meanwhile, Kandi and Todd attempt to go on a romantic date, but Todd drops a bomb that leaves Kandi torn. Phaedra continues to feel the rippling effect of Apollo?s absence and is inspired to throw a charity event. Things take a turn when NeNe makes a cameo from New York and exchanges words with Claudia.
Recap + watch full video below…
Cynthia and Kenya seem to be bonding quite nicely on Team Petta and the former supermodel invites the ex-beauty queen over to help choose dress options for Noelle.
On the flip side, it seems that Kenya is rubbing off on Cynthia in other ways and even Cynthia’s husband Peter notices the ‘growth’.
In addition to her new
butt shots butt, Cynthia is working alongside her ex on Kenya’s production and she’s nervous about her acting debut where she’s playing a Jamaican, so she’s gotten her hubby to coach her on her Caribbean dialect.
This should be interesting…
Kandi prepares for the return of her long lost hubby, Todd and invites friends Kwame & Karmen over to assist.
The successful entrepreneur wants to ensure that Todd’s return is eventful and it seems Kandi wants to sex things up a bit after that whole bonnet situation. She selects tight little leopard number with plenty of cleavage in hopes that she can get Todd’s attention back on track.
It’s been over 2 weeks since Kandi and Todd have seen each other and date night is the perfect start for their mini reunion, but the conversation turns strained as the couple talks about their fertility options.
[Sidebar… Kandi & Todd’s ‘date night’ is the perfect segway into the couples upcoming reality show (click HERE if you missed that)… but I digress]
I’m sure we’ll see their entire story unfold in more detail shortly after the reunion airs, so stay tuned.
Apparently being a ‘housewife’ without a husband requires a lot of effort, as evidenced by Kenya Moore’s antics throughout the years.
Now she’s embarking on another pretend moment as she dons a wedding gown to portray a bitter bride in yet another one of her straight to dvd productions.
[FLASHBACK: Janet Hubert Blasts Kenya’s ‘Hot Mess’ Production… ]
Only time will tell if Kenya will ever really ‘produce’ anything from that production company she’s been claiming for years, but at least she’s hung up her Moore-Whore hat for the time being so that Clawdia can get some shine.
After spending time in the Philippines and connecting with her tour guide, Phaedra decides to host a men’s rally to empower minority/inner city kids.
It’s her hope to inspire young men with strong Black male role models, so she reaches out to a few friends to help make it happen.
Phaedra gathered some of the most influential men in Atlanta to inspire young men for an event she called ‘S.O.S.’ (Saving Our Sons), and the ‘Housewives’ all attend the worthy cause.
Major props to Phaedra for coordinating such a worthy cause, which was marred by Claudia and her thirst.
Life Lesson #5 – Why be peaceful when you can be employed?
So lezzbehonest for a moment. It’s no secret that Clawdia earned her RHOA peach by antagonizing Nene in Puerto Rico and now the catty cat lady is on a quest to KEEP her newfound paycheck by continuing with the drama.
Last week, Bravo tried to trick impressionable minds into believing that the ladies’ trip to the Philippines was all about restoring unity and peace, when in ‘real life’ the relationships are just as strained as they’ve always been.
[NEVER FORGET: Phaedra Accuses Kenya of ‘Affair’ With Apollo… ]
The ‘peacekeeper’ on the trip was Claudia but apparently her title is only valid over seas because during Phaedra’s SOS event, Claudia took yet another opportunity to antagonize Nene but she was promptly shut down with a crafty monologue from Mrs. Leakes.
Nene attempts to walk away from the drama and Claudia chooses to chase her down in an attempt to get a reaction. What she gets is another prompt exit as Nene chooses to walk away from the thirst bucket.
I see the strategy now. Every time they come gunning, Nene goes running. And while her detractors may call it cowardly, I think it takes a strong woman to hold back when she really wants to smack a b*tch.
Been there… restraint is a gift hunny! For realz….
