In case you missed it, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are still happily hatin’ (it’s like ‘hating’ but with shade and side-eyes) on each other, let’s catch up on all the happenings.

In case you missed it, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are still happily hatin’ (it’s like ‘hating’ but with shade and side-eyes) on each other, let’s catch up on all the happenings.

In vital RHOA news, Kenya is now gardening, but her aunt thinks a cactus is just her speed.  This is of course vital because after Apollo apollo-gized, see what I did there, and Phaedra explained she was just over it, Kenya has few battles left to fight.  Or at least said battles are on hold until later in the season.

During a group dinner, Nene and Cynthia’s crippled (read: nonexistent) friendship is front and center as they leave the all RHOA dinner for a one on one, are they still pals?  They hug and both want to move on.  There’s no “moving on” in Housewives!

In case you were wondering, at home, Nene has trouble with her fancy cappuccino machine while instructing Gregg to take medication to boost his immune system because she’s ‘not a good nurse, (she’ll) give you a pill and call you from the mall.  Gregg also learns his wife reconciled with Cynthia and he knows Nene missed her.

Later back at Cynthia’s house, Peter is not less thrilled Cynthia is giddy that she and Nene are back to buds.  Peter’s been walking around ‘doing the wop’ (you recall the 90’s dance move) while Nene’s been missing in action.  He thinks Nene’s been left off too easy.  There may be a follow up one-on-one between the two.  They may be back to being friends in theory, but practice may take some more time. Ya can’t just call someone’s husband a bitch, NeNe.

But do you remember that time Kandi’s mom said Todd was raised by a pimp?  He does, and his mom’s still feeling a type of way about it.  In other news, thoughts to Todd and his family in recent weeks as in real time (not RHOA time) Todd’s mom, Sharon, passed away in New York.  In Housewives time, Kandi calls Todd on the loss of his ‘hood card, but he’s ready to take her on a tour of the Bronx neighborhood he grew up in.  In other news, Todd used to work for BET as he runs into former coworker, he lost his virginity in the 5th floor stairwell of his mom’s building and you need Timbs (er Timberland brand work boots for the unfamiliar) to really be a ’round the way girl’ from NY.  (As a native New Yorker, I can’t say he’s wrong)

For Phaedra, it’s business as usual, she’s not letting Apollo’s nonsense impact her business.  RHOA  hair guru Derek J is being accused of stealing a client’s weaved hair.  She’s claiming she came in wearing certain hair, but her new weave was lesser quality hair.  Later, Phaedra visits the scene, or weave, of the crime.

Lately Cynthia has been flaunting her fabulous figure all over Atlanta and in the pages of magazines like Ebony, but honey, Miss Cynthia’s been away from high fashion for a while and this season for New York Fashion she’s been asked to close her designer-friend’s show but now she’s a insecure about both her figure and her power walk.
