Well, Real Housewives Of Atlanta started out nicely, didn’t it? Of course, after Jesus fixed things up nice, it went straight down to hell in a hand basket over dinner! Get your prayer cloths and holy water to the fires, y’all!
I, for one, loved seeing Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore get their glamour and their good intentions on to drive to Detroit in a vintage convertible, letting the shade fly out the window like one of Kenya’s alleged weaves. Phaedra and Kenya are about to spend a week roughing it with children affected by the Flint water crisis at summer camp.
We watched Cynthia say goodbye to her first Atlanta home as she prepared to move on to her lake home. Despite having a gorgeous new place lined up (eventually), she gets nostalgic over leaving it behind. “It was very difficult to pack up my old home. It is the only home that Noelle and I have ever known since our move to Atlanta from New York City almost nine years ago. There is so much history and memories in that house. I actually teared up watching the flashbacks. I didn’t think I would be so emotional. Noelle was excited about the move until it was actually time to move. Then she started to get all sentimental on me. She was eight years old when we moved to Atlanta, and now she is seventeen. Noelle grew up in that house.”
Kenya Moore returns home from Charlotte, to find her house vandalized. It seems MattJordan is made of magic carpets, because after driving ALL night to Charlotte where he harassed Kenya at Club One, he turned right around and drove all night back to ATL to smash in Kenya’s garage windows, sprinkle (was that juice? blood? droplets of rage?), break her car window and her back door, and spray paint over her security cameras. Dang – hell hath no fury like a man scorned.
On the other side of the spectrum, freed from the clutches of one felonious fool, Phaedra Parks is happily clutching her pearls while smirking the good fortune that has fallen into her lap. Or into her law office, rather, and it’s not a bomb threat this time. And Porsha Williams continues her travels backwards in maturity by sneaking her boyfriend into her mom’s house for a little late-night nookie (with Yoni balls).
On tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Cynthia gave her two cents on Matt and Kenya‘s relationship, “Well, everything that we saw on the show is real. I just feel like the relationship has just gotten unhealthy and I want them to go their separate ways.”
The drama between Kenya Moore and Matt Jordan continues on. Kenya sits down with Cynthia Bailey and shares some of the scary text messages she has recently received from Matt. They seem to escalate in intensity after he finds out that Peter Thomas canceled his plane ticket to Charlotte, where Matt was to attend Peter’s club opening with Kenya.
Call me naive, but I had no idea that Cynthia Bailey had breast implants until the last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode when she had that super weird breast exam party with the entire cast in the doctor’s office. Sure, exploiting cosmetic procedures for a social occasion is nothing new for reality TV, but this was odd. Yet, the most significant scene for Cynthia’s storyline didn’t even have her in it. Yes, I’m talking about that emotional heart to heart between Cynthia‘s daughter Noelle Robinson and soon-to-be-ex-husband Peter Thomas.
Peter has been petty and nasty in the press, so I’m truthfully kind of surprised that Noelle wants to hang with him still, but she has known him for many years, so I guess that makes sense. In her blog, Cynthia shares how she felt about these two meeting up for a hot yoga session and that serious discussion about how to continue their own relationship.
