Last week, the reunion jumped off with look back in time for all the ladies and a special announcement from Kenya Moore.
Eva Marcille joins the ladies and wastes no time questioning the sincerity of Cynthia’s love interest. Keeping on the topic of love, the ladies get candid with their opinions surrounding Shere?’s prison bae and both she and Cynthia find themselves in the hot seat defending their relationship status. As the dust settles, tensions rise once again when Kim returns to the reunion couches for the first time since Season 6, bringing her face-to-face with frenemy turned enemy NeNe for the first time in months.
Recap + full video below…
Williams pulls a “Phaedra” and shrugs off a question about why she did it but son admits that she was wrong for waving the fan in Marlo’s face after experiencing a similar act from Kenya (when she waved the scepter in her face).
Speaking of Marlo, she says she’s changed and that her violent past is just that… in the past.
That’s when Kenya brings up the fact that Marlo “slashed” her victims face (yes… Kenya has definitely been reading Straight from the A!)
Mugshot Marlo doesn’t confirm nor deny the fact that she’s quick with a switchblade but states that her MANY mugshots stem mostly from non-violent offenses like probation violations.
Nevertheless, Marlo says that “everyone” has a past and hopes that she is judged about how she carries herself in the present.
Rape Jokes Are NEVER OK…
As you know, Nene’s joke got her booted from Kandi’s Xscape tour, but Burruss admits that she doesn’t have any hard feelings and knows that it was a mistake.
Kandi even offers a bit of support for Nene in stating that it was a COMEDY show and oftentimes comedy is offensive. On the other hand, Sheree jumps in to say that as a ‘victim of domestic violence’ she would NEVER wish something like ‘rape’ on someone.
Now… I’m not one to gossip but I’ve HEARD that Sheree had to pull back on those claims after Bob threatened a lawsuit against Bravo.
Hence why Sheree wasn’t in Kenya’s domestic violence PSA and why she didn’t speak too much about it during the season.
That being said, Sheree got the side-eye from Kandi, Nene AND Andy she she tried to bury Nene which is why Andy offered even more support to his cash cow by bringing up the fact that Nene had been supporting domestic violence causes since season one.
Another FAIL for Sheree. But I digress.
On a related note, Nene isn’t upset that Kandi took her off the tour, stating business is business and the less contentious vibe between the two prompts Andy to ask what has changed over the years.
Kandi & Nene both admit they have finally made amends and developed a friendship.
Sheree’s not feeling it, but she won’t be there long enough to care anyway.
PROSTITUTE Allegations ARE Banned From Now On…
In the midst of being read yet again by the former beauty queen, Marlo states that she is offended about Kenya constantly referring to her as a “prostitute”.
Marlo seeks to let the world know that she’s on the up and up despite the fact that she has presented herself as a well-paid escort in the past.
When asked how exactly she is able to live such a fabulous life without a job in sight, Marlo states that she once date a billionaire (Andy makes sure to note it’s NOT Ted Turner).
Andy takes the opportunity to shade Sheree yet again and asks Marlo if her company is affiliated with Sheree’s imaginary “Bone collector LLC” but Marlo assures him that HER company is legit.
Porsha then offers a bit of support to Marlo in saying that Kenya constantly referring to her as a prostitute or paid escort is inappropriate… especially without proof.
[Sidebar: But wait… didn’t Marlo just admit during PART 1 that she got $20,000 from Nene’s friend John after a “date”??? I digress….]
Kenya then brings up the fact that Porsha is being hypocritical since she once accused Kenya of being paid by a ‘one-eyed’ African and before she’s about to spill the tea about Porsha’s rich African, Andy makes a proclamation that prostitution claims are forever off limits.
The timing of Andy’s call to end the derogatory accusations is interesting, especially in light of Kenya’s “husband” Marc’s assessment that RHOA is a poor representation of African-America women.
But again… I digress.
Cynthia and Andy have a lot in Common…
Eva Marcille comes out for her segment and says she’s having contractions about 10 minutes apart.? For the record, the reunion was taped about 3 weeks ago and Eva had her baby this past Friday (click HERE if you missed that).
Nevertheless, Eva spent her time on the set wisely and made her mark as she called Cynthia out about her fake relationship with Will Jones.
Cynthia says that she still doesn’t believe Will had a girlfriend but Eva reiterates that she actually met the young lady.
Cynthia’s birthday party was in June… Eva met Will’s ‘girlfriend’ in June.
For the record, I told y’all way back in August that Cynthia and Will’s relationship was made for TV.
And it seems that I was right (yet again) as Andy notes how awkward the couple were during several of their scenes.
Bailey begrudgingly admits that she and Will never even slept together and Andy “mourns” the loss for her but in discussing her fake relationship, it’s revealed that Cynthia and Andy have similar tastes…. the both like DARK men.
Andy states that he knows for a fact that Cynthia prefers a “darker” man and Nene and Kenya co-sign.
Bailey claims she likes someone and I suspect that they are all talking about Peter Thomas.
The “ELEPHANT” Arrives…
She walks out without shoes with her red solo cup in hand and of course Kroy is waiting nearby.
[Sidebar: As KKKim walks in Kenya asks for cocktails under her breath and Nene has to remind her that she’s “pregnant”…. Hmmmm?!? Again, I digress. ]
Andy first acknowledges KKKim’s lips since they arrived before she did and asks what her “end game” is on the lip pumping.? Oh the shade!!!
KKKim seems on edge and she should be because it’s about to be a drag session!
Andy asks a few viewer questions and one inquires about Kim’s ‘shut up and look pretty’ comment to Cynthia Bailey.
KKKim states that she meant it as a compliment, while Cynthia states that she was offend.? Bailey further address how Sheree sat next to KKKim in a video online where KKKim stated that it was good Bailey was beautiful because without her looks, she wouldn’t have gotten far.
Sheree seems to have a memory loss but Bravo pulls the clip.? Another FAIL for Sheree.
Cynthia tells her she takes offense with the comments and KKKim again reiterates that calling her beautiful is a compliment. *sigh*
No KKKim… it’s clearly not a compliment to tell a woman to “just shut up and look pretty”.? It’s condescending and if the tables were turned KKKim would be trying to attach herself to the #MeToo movement!
In response to everyone’s comments KKKim states that she doesn’t think Cynthia has a backbone, to which Bailey responds that KKKim has no class.? Case closed.
It’s clear that KKKim was already on some bullsh*t when she first arrived with Sheree to Nene’s white party.? Nene was receptive to her then but as the season progressed, it was soon evident that KKKim was on a mission to do anything to secure a spot.
As for the photo of Nene’s car, Kim claims that someone “sent” her the pic, while a flashback proves otherwise as she’s heard telling Sheree that she took the photo.
The entire set amazed at KKKim’s blatant lie and Nene has had enough as she finally explodes when Kim is busted lying about the pic.
We are left with a helluva cliffhanger as Nene finally “reverts’ back to “Nay-Nay” to give KKKim the dragging she deserves.
You are a HATER, you are JEALOUS, your mouth is f*ckkin RECKLESS, you are f*ckkin’ trash!!!
Porsha finally apologizes to Kandi and it seems like Kandi accepted her apology.
