Apollo is suspicious that Phaedra is concealing assets and that he was actually entitled to more than he was set to receive. It also feels weird to be talking about Apollo controlling properties and collateral from inside a jail cell, but I guess he’s looking to the future.
After conquering LA with her Cargo collection, Cynthia is ready to take on Atlanta – America’s fashion mecca. Let’s be honest though, the real person Cynthia needs to impress is Sheree Whitfield. THE elegant and sophisticated fashion pioneer behind the infamous and influential She By Sheree. Big leagues!
Kairo has modeling dreams so as a favor to build his portfolio Cynthia asked him to walk in her show. Kairo dead-eye shuffles like he’s auditioning for The Walking Dead and is carrying his former human life in that mock-croc backpack. Sheree is the only one impressed, and she’s the only one unimpressed that Kairo’s only compensation is a measly bag. Even though most of the models aren’t even getting that.
Sure, a divorce is an odd thing to celebrate, but I think I understood the point Kenya intended to make with the party — she just wanted to support Phaedra and Cynthia during this transitional period of their lives. I also get why Phaedra could find it to be insensitive. I just don’t get why Phaedra handled her disappointment the way that she did. Pretending to look for ginger ale and then name calling ginger ale was NOT the best move to make.
I (along with many other viewers) was confused by Cynthia Bailey bringing Peter Thomas on a couples vacation even though they were in the process of divorcing. The viewers got to experience a lot of vicarious awkwardness from the last couple Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes.
This could not be more true when Cynthia attempted to roast Peter for his birthday and Kenya Moore threw a “Divorce Party” for her and Phaedra Parks. Yes, I think the idea is a little weird, but it did seem like Kenya was acting from a place of kindness so it was so awkward when Phaedra pretended to look for ginger ale as an excuse to leave. Not only that, but she retreated into her old ways by name calling Kenya via text.
I gotta say Phaedra really disappointed me. Usually I’d see Kenya as the cartoon cheetah in this scenario, but last night it was sooo Phaedra! One thing about this trip to Maui was that that the ladies really shed their facades and let their guards down for a change.
The episode opens with Kenya and Phaedra playing tennis, bantering as they batted balls – badly – back and forth. Kenya seems hopeful that she and Phaedra are on their way to a real friendship, but Phaedra is still content to keep things at a distance. Although she’s glad she and Kenya aren’t having drama like everyone else. DUH – DUH -DUH… that’s some horror movie foreshadowing right there! Especially when Phaedra mentions, again, that she doesn’t quite trust Kenya (or any of these girls) with the status of her divorce.
Happy St Patrick’s Day! To kick off this all new gallery of reality star sightings is Tonya Banks celebrating the premiere of her “Lil Boss Body” clothing line with a few of her Little Women: LA co-stars.
