Last week, we were left with an explosive cliffhanger featuring Sheree Whitfield & Kenya Moore (aka the ‘homeless’ housewives).
Kenya takes her “Life Twirls On” TV pilot to former actress-turned director Kim Fields seeking her advice. Cynthia struggles with the embarrassment following the viral video of Peter. Shere? throws shade when Kenya questions the state of Chateau Shere?. Porsha introduces her new boyfriend to friends and family. Missing her close friendship with Phaedra, Kandi decides it’s time to confront their issues, once and for all.
Recap + watch full video below…
VIDEO: RHOA 0802 ‘Duking It Out’
The fight between Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield has lingered into the 2nd episode and while the world was hoping that Moore got a face full of Whitfield’s white wine, the scene ends with Kenya withdrawing and apologizing for calling Sheree a ‘b*tchass’.
The tension quickly subsides and Phaedra Parks attempts to play peacemaker, asking Kenya, ‘I thought you changed,’ while Kenya manages to throw a ton of shade in her confessional, stating, ‘Shut up Phaedra, why don’t you change the locks on your door, that’s what you need to change. Now that Apollo’s not coming back.’
The legendary Kim Fields is finally introduced during the 2nd episode and oddly enough, she’s not brought in as a ‘friend’ of any of the ladies on the show. In fact, Kim’s induction into RHOA begins with Kenya Moore, who visits Fields to recruit her as a producer on her iphone taped series, ‘Life Twirls On.’
Kim is clearly not interested in working with Kenya, but she plays along even through the shade thrown by Ms. Easy Greasy Covergirl.
Whatever the case, Kim Fields has been formerly introduced and we’ll be seeing a lot more of her (yawn).
Cynthia and Peter’s Rocky Road…
Peter Thomas seems to be unbothered about being caught on tape with that women in the club, while it seems Cynthia Bailey is crying on everyone’s shoulder about it.
Bailey confides with her business partner about her marital issues and admits that she and Peter have some serious issues that need to be resolved.
Phaedra and Kandi finally open up to each other about the issues affecting their friendship.
I’ve revealed in previous posts how Phaedra was harboring some resentment about Kandi and Todd storing Apollo Nida’s personal belongings but now, she’s finally admitted it onscreen.
Kandi brings up her issues with Phaedra talking to Nene Leakes about their issues and says it really ‘irritated’ her how Phaedra would pretend they were all good face to face, but talk behind her back about their issues.
Phaedra then reveals that ‘a stranger’ came to her asking to buy some of Apollo’s belongings that he saw he Kandi’s garage and tells Burruss that the ‘government’ had been knocking on her door looking for Apollo’s assets, so it put her in a precarious position.
“Girl, the feds were coming to you about way more than this little motorbike & 4-wheeler, I assure you.” – Kandi
After a bit of back & forth, Kandi finally brings up Todd’s issue about the money Phaedra owes him but they can’t agree on the exact about (is if 5,000 or 8,000?).
The two friends each share a few tears and seem to make amends.? They both seem open to restoring their friendship, but who knows….
Porsha has only known her 24 year old boytoy, Duke Williams for less than a month, but she’s ready to introduce him to everybody in her life.
Williams plans a surprise party for her new boo, which includes all of her friends and family (‘friend of show’ Shamea Morton makes her first appearance during the event).
Porsha’s little sister just so happens to be expecting (click HERE if you missed that) and Porsha is clearly feeling ‘some kinda way’ as she puts her new relationship on fast forward.
Duke’s friend seems to feel that Porsha is ‘a whole lot’ as she gives her new boo the ‘MVP’ award in her life. Duke seems a bit on edge, but he plays along.
Too much too soon? ABSOLUTELY! But what would we have to talk about if Porsha hadn’t planned this lil dumb shindig?
