Time to recap the 3rd episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta titled ‘White Hot.’
This episode brought us fame monsters, threats to unborn babies and the magical appearance of Sheree’s eldest daughter. The episode starts out with Kim Gaga verbally abusing her assistant Sweetie, while also packing for her big live concert in front of the biggest gay dance party in the universe. Evidently, lip syncing to an auto-tuned backtrack takes a lot of preparation.
Nene takes her youngest son Brent out for a walk in the park. The two share a tender mother and son moment during which Nene brings up the topic of Bryson’s arrest. Nene states in her interview that she did not want to go into the arrest details with Brent due to his young age, but something tells me at age 11, Brent is well aware of all that is going on around him.

On the third episode of the season, titled ‘White Hot,’ Kim receives the opportunity of a lifetime when she is invited to perform at one of the biggest gay circuit parties – the White Party. But only having “Tardy for the Party” under her repertoire, is Kim ready for her first concert appearance?
Meanwhile NeNe continues to struggle with her son Brice’s brush with the law, and new housewife Phaedra continues to defend her husband Apollo and his shady, criminal past amidst rumors around town. But when it seems that Phaedra and Apollo don’t exactly see eye to eye when it comes to parenting, how will this affect their relationship? Find out tonight!
In other Atlanta news, RadarOnline is reporting that Nene Leakes’ marriage to hubby Gregg Leakes continues to be strained. The latest is that Nene is very furious at Gregg all over the money he reportedly borrowed from Dwight Eubanks.
Despite Gregg’s denials on the show that he only borrowed $500 from Dwight, a source tells Radar that Gregg did indeed borrow $10,000. “Gregg lied to NeNe because he did get a $10,000 loan from Dwight and now she is really pi**ed at him.”
The source adds, “Money is a sensitive issue between them and NeNe cannot believe that Gregg would lie to her. She feels it has put her in an awkward position with Dwight because they are really good friends who confide in one another both on and off camera.”

Episode 2 starts out with Kim Zolciak and her assistant Sweetie going for a beer run or walk or something. One hit wonder Pop star Kimmy feels she needs to look great, you know, considering she is a big pop star and all now. The two end their run by re-hydrating with a beer.
We see a very pregnant Phaedra at her workplace. The attorney is meeting up with a non-celebrity client of hers who was arrested for marijuana possession, and no, it is not Nene’s son Bryson, just in case you were wondering. “Unfortunately, 1 in 3 black men will be indicted for a felony and do some prison time. Instead of us punishing people who have obviously served their time, we really need to embrace them so that they don’t have to go back into crime,” states Phaedra, who is obviously doing her part by marrying an ex-con shortly after his release.

On tonight’s episode, titled ‘Model Behavior,’ the other housewives discover that Phaedra‘s husband Apolloserved over 5 years in prison. They quickly began to speculate and wonder how a lawyer ended up with an ex-con.
On Nene’s home front, things get even rockier as her son Bryson asks to come back following one of his arrests for drug possession. Meanwhile, following her fight with Dwight, Nene runs into him at a public event and attempts to talk to him using a much calmer approach. Will Dwight give Nene the time of the day? Will they be able to resolve their issues? Find out tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
Also on tonight’s episode, the other new housewife, Cynthia Bailey, will make her debut. In an interview with the HollywoodLife, Cynthia sings the praises of Nene Leakes but questions Kim Zolciak’s authenticity.
“I didn’t see it coming because she is so bigger than life, but NeNe was the most real person on the show,” she says. “I felt like she was consistent and proved herself to be a friend.” And when it comes to Kim bisexuality, Cynthia has some doubts. “She puts it out there and then doesn’t want to talk about it,” she says. “I will say for the most part I think Kim will do whatever she needs to do to stay relevant.”
A preview clip from tonight’s episode is below -

So typically, the plan is to wait a few weeks into a Housewives season before doing weekly recaps, but within 10 minutes of watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 3 premiere last night, I knew a recap was coming today.
The season premiere definitely did not disappoint. It brought the drama as well as some highlarious great one-liners. “I’ve been chasing dick since I came out of the womb” anyone? Priceless.
My only pet peeve with the Atlanta ladies is that last night’s episode just seemed o what’s that word I’m looking for — phony! From watching the show, it is rather obvious that the ladies are very aware of the cameras and are definitely playing things up while getting into their characters. Example – Sheree’s comment about winning an Oscar one day. It just seemed like she was playing into the whole narcissism aspect of her character. I wasn’t buying it nor do I believe she really feels that way, nor do I think she has a new found passion for acting. I believe the ladies are turning things up a notch this season as not to get the Lisa Wu Hartwell treatment.

So what can we expect tonight? One word – DRAMA! Unlike the New Jersey Housewives’ second season, which we had to wait almost 9 episodes before the infamous country club scene, the Atlanta ladies bring the drama on the season premiere! Nene Leakes and Dwight Eubanks will almost come to blows tonight as Nene decides to confront Dwight on rumors he has been spreading about her husband Gregg. Rumors which include Gregg trying to borrow money from him.
Meanwhile, the other housewives read about Kim Zolciak’sarticle in Life&Style magazine, during which she comes out as a bisexual, and they all try to get the scoop on the real deal with Kim. Sheree Whitfield decides she now wants to act following the failuredemise of her She By Sheree fashion line. Kandi Burruss tries to get back into the dating scene following the tragic death of her fiance last year. One of the new housewives, Phaedra Parks will also be introduced in tonight’s episode.
In other Atlanta news, new housewifePhaedra Parks has found herself in the media headlines since the February announcement of her addition to the show. The reason? The Atlanta Entertainment Attorney just happens to be married to an ex-con named Apollo Nida.
Apollo, 31, was convicted in 2004 for racketeering. He was paroled last year in May 2009 after serving five out of his 18-year prison sentence. Phaedra and Apollo married late last year and the two recently welcomed a baby boy in July.
Phaedra, 38, defended Apollo and her decision to marry him in a recent statement. Part of that statement is below -
My husband was convicted of a white-collar crime. It was racketeering. He comes up for an appeal and we just hope that works out positively. But he wasn’t guilty of harming any person or anybody and unfortunately that’s what happened. I married my husband because I loved him and he loved me and I think that’s the foundation of any good relationship. I didn’t marry him because of his past or because of his future. I married him because I respected him and I realized⎯everyone should realize that people make mistakes.
I know who I am and I have a very good sense of my husband and what our relationship is built on. So at the end of the day I have to go home to him and so whomever you marry has to be your personal choice. And that has to be a choice that you’re willing to live with. I married him because I love him, not because somebody else loves him and has to live with him and deal with him every day⎯it’s because I do so if you can live with your decision then that’s all that matters.
UPDATE – Apollo’s mugshots have been added below.
