In all honesty, the tea was lukewarm at best. Dennis got tattoos of his past love interests, cooked for them, and gave them Rolex watches. Alright, then. There have been way worse rumors on this show. Kandi told the ladies that she didn’t want to share her insights with Porsha since they just became cool(ish) again. All of the women agreed that no one should tell Porsha and they should just let her use her own judgment. Obviously, that’s not what happened. This is Real Housewives of Atlanta, after all. Of course, someone told Porsha about the gossip.
It’s Dennis McKinley‘s turn to be in the hot seat and meet Porsha’s mom. They get together at his hookah lounge CRU, which makes perfect sense since Diane doesn’t like the smell of hookah.”Between hookah, hair, and hot dogs, there’s not one other word that begins with ‘H’ that could describe my Dennis,” Porsha brags. Dennis, who doesn’t have hair, but does have the delightful distinction of looking hot dog-esque (sans the ‘hot’ part). Aren’t hookah lounges passe – just like visible panty lines, which Porsha, unfortunately, has in those way too tight jeggings.
Now we are subjected to Eva Marcilleand Shamari DeVoedesperately grasping for their peaches with thinly laid shade and events no one cares about. Porsha Williams’life is moving forward at lightning speed. Of course, Kandi Burruss “knows of” her new man Dennis McKinley. She knows everyone in Atlanta, haven’t you heard? Kandi has some not-so-piping tea to spill on Dennis and his (alleged) romantic past/present.
Since Kandi had fibroids and a high-risk pregnancy with Ace, she and Todd Tucker are considering a surrogate (or two!) to make babies out of their two remaining embryos. Until they learn surrogates – the good ones who aren’t hanging in the hood – cost $100k per uterine rental, and Todd might not even get to rub their bellies. At least Todd realizes he better get to work at the OLG instead of just sampling fried chicken and cocktails while talking about work.
The first three episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 have been very kumbayah. I’m all for sisterhood, but I would prefer to have my sisterhood with a side of drama. They can all be super of supportive of each other, but just do so in the middle of some dramatic storylines. Please.
Shamari pushed her husband Ronnie DeVoe to critique Kandi’s musical performance completely out of nowhere. Why push him to give Kandi’s group unsolicited advice? Did she just not want to make a good impression on the rest of the cast? Nevertheless, Shamari’s delusional aspirations to be the “next” Beyonce and Jay Z truly entertained me. Therefore, I welcome her presence. For now.
