On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode, Porsha Williams‘ relationship with Dennis McKinley was tested. Then, she turned to the professionals for help. In happier news, the women also learned they’re going to Japan to sightsee, enjoy amazing cuisine, and take in all the local culture… HA!
We pick up at Tanya Sam‘s house. Tanya is obviously in denial. She pretends she’s hosting a real dinner party, with her real friends. However, this is a Real Housewives Of Atlanta party with fake friends who are paid to hate each other. In this case, Kandi Burruss is threatening to leave before dinner is even served (and the trip to Japan announced) because Porsha called her fake.
Unfortunately for Brittany Cartwright, her trip to Miami started with a fight on an airplane. One of her fellow passengers pushed her and put gum in her (perfect) hair. If only she had that private jet access like her Vanderpump Rules costar Lala Kent. Ironically enough, Brittany and Jax Taylor were headed to Miami to hang with Lala and her man Randall Emmett.
Let’s just hope that the two of them did not fly commercial on their way back. Or if they did, let’s hope that it’s a much more pleasant travel experience. At the very least, it looks like the two couples had a fun (very extended) double date during their trip.
The drama began when Kandi threw Todd Tucker a Michael Jordan themed 45th birthday party. Being benevolent (Or something like that!) Kandi invited Porsha and Dennis McKinley. And because parties are gathering places to bring people together from all sides of the spectrum Kandi also invited her “worker” Jami. Jami happens to be friends with Dennis’ ex Sherri. Sherri happens to be tattooed on Dennis’s body, and Jami happened to bring Sherri as her plus one. And then Sheri happened to loiter around Porsha and Dennis until Porsha walked away, then Sherri walked over to Dennis and gave him a hug and a kiss, just as Porsha happened to walk back over. Obviously Porsha got a little miffed and confronted Sherri. Wouldn’t you?
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.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta we met new Housewife Shamari DeVoe, and she is um, extra excited about being Mrs. DeVoe and about her great wonderful amazing life. Also, Eva Marcille seems to have some postpartum infection of shadiness that may be crossing the line!
After two very rocky seasons, Kandi Burrussand Porsha Williams are trying to be cordial. They are far from being besties, but things are lot better between them these days. Porsha’s new man Dennis McKinley told Porsha that he goes to Kandi’s restaurant Old Lady Gang once a week. This shocked Porsha. I cannot wait to see Dennis and Kandi’s first interaction. That’s going to be… interesting, but most likely awkward.
At this point in the season, Kandi hasn’t told Porsha that she knows Dennis through other women he has dated. However, she did caution Porsha against moving too quickly in the relationship. Too little, too late for that one. Mere months into their relationship, Porsha and Dennis looked at engagement rings. Porsha even tried to share a toothbrush with the man, something that did not sit well with the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast. At all.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlantahas turned into The Porsha WilliamsShow. She is getting more screen time than ever before. She has a new man, a thirst for an engagement ring, and eventually a baby on the way. Porsha’s life has done a complete 180 this past season.
Aside from all of her personal strides, Porsha even made amends with Marlo Hamptonduring the cast trip in Miami. These two went from fighting over a doormat last season to turning up at the club this season. Oh how times have changed.
This season of Real Housewives of Atlantahas a different energy than ever before. NeNe Leakes’beloved husband Gregg Leakes is suffering with cancer. Of course no one wants to see anyone suffering with cancer, but it’s especially tough to watch Gregg go through it. He is easily the most-liked person on this show and true rock to pretty much everyone in the cast. With that said, his health struggles have truly united the cast. So far.
NeNe and Gregg went down to Miami to celebrate her store opening. It was their first big trip since Gregg was diagnosed and a big deal for the couple. Porsha Williamssecretly invited the Atlanta Housewives down to Miami to surprise NeNe. NeNe insisted that she does not like surprises, but this one made her very happy.
