Kenya and Matt may be over and Kandi says that Phaedra is a phony. That pretty much sums up what happened on last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”. If you missed it, don’t worry I have your full recap right here.
The show began with Porsha coming to Phaedra’s rescue. Porsha volunteered to babysit Phaedra’s dynamic duo so that she could get some work done. Well, shortly after Phaedra left, Porsha realized that she has gotten more than she bargained for with those little cuties. Aiden was trying to negotiate his pajama wardrobe while Dylan decided not to cooperate with anything. Porsha said that she was babysitting a mini Phaedra and Apollo. Babysitting Phaedra’s boys made Porsha rethink the whole single mother situation. She is no longer sure if she wants to pursue her baby dreams without a husband.
Kenya calls her dad and tells him that he needs to come and see the house now that it is finished. It takes about two seconds for Kenya to change the conversation to Matt. She begins to tell her dad how Matt has been treating her lately and how he damaged her house. Kenya’s dad seems concerned and tells her to put him on the next flight and he will be there. He also stated how he wanted to talk to Matt face to face.
Meanwhile, at Phaedra’s office, she gets another strange visitor. Phaedra gets a visit from her alleged attacker’s mother. In my opinion, the whole visit seemed staged. In last week’s episode, Phaedra received a bomb threat from a former client. Well, according to Phaedra, it wasn’t a bomb threat at all; instead, her former client was trying to give her some “bomb” CDs. Um, yeah you read that correctly.
Phaedra says the whole thing was just a big misunderstanding. I know Phaedra wears many hats and has several businesses but I wasn’t aware that music producer or music promoter was one of them. Well, fast forward back to this episode… Phaedra gets a visit from the mother of the alleged attacker and she reassures Phaedra that she has nothing to fear. If he was indeed trying to drop off CDs, why is there a need to be reassured by his mother that he is not a threat to her? I think Phaedra is trying hard to do damage control.
Kenya vs Matt & Kandi vs Phaedra
Kenya’s dad arrives at Moore Manor and is shocked at the transformation. He said something about how it didn’t look like a piece of sh*t anymore. Y’all know Kenya’s daddy tells it like it is! While Kenya’s dad was admiring the house, Kenya brings up Matt. Kenya insists that Matt loves her and that he will do better, but Kenya’s dad thinks differently. Daddy basically explains to Kenya that if Matt truly loved her, he wouldn’t treat her this way. Dad then tells Kenya to get Matt on the phone because he wants to meet him.
Matt agreed to meet Kenya and her dad at a cigar bar. Kenya and her dad are the first to arrive. After waiting for what seems to be hours, Kenya’s dad finally ask Kenya if Matt is going to show up. Kenya checks her phone and realizes that she has 17 missed text messages from Matt and that he is saying that he is not coming. Kenya appears to be annoyed by the news and decides to give Matt a call. The conversation quickly gets heated as Matt tries to explain his actions. Kenya’s dad steps in and tries to defuse the situation but has no luck.
Kenya hangs up with Matt and a few minutes later he appears at the cigar bar. Kenya’s dad tries to explain to Matt that the way he is treating Kenya is not right. Matt gets defensive and tries to explain how Kenya’s actions provoke him. Daddy tells Kenya that she needs to learn to compromise and meet in the middle, but as usual, Kenya doesn’t think the problem lies with her. The meeting doesn’t end well. Kenya’s dad tells Matt that if his love is real he needs to fight to save the relationship. He also tells Matt that if he didn’t think the relationship was worth saving, he should get in his truck and never look back. Matt decided to walk away.
Now on to the end of a friendship. Kandi agreed to meet up with Phaedra for dinner so they could discuss their issues. It was easy to see that Kandi had her guard up as soon as she arrived. The look on her face said that she was flying above all the drama. At first, things were a little awkward but Phaedra finally broke the ice by explaining why she wanted to talk with Kandi. Phaedra proceeds to tell Kandi that she was offended by Mama Joyce’s comments regarding the bomb threat at her office. Of course, Kandi quickly comes to the defense of her mother and tells Phaedra that her mom was only repeating what was already out. Kandi also brings up that she feels Phaedra was being phony and has been for awhile now.
Once Kandi got started there was no stopping her and she let out a lot of Phaedra’s secrets. Kandi said that Phaedra couldn’t wait for Apollo to go to prison and that she was counting down the days. She also stated that Phaedra was dating people before Apollo went into the big house and how she planned on being remarried by the new year. Of course, miss southern belle denied all the accusations, but I feel like Kandi was telling the truth. Needless to say, there is no recovering this friendship. Kandi tells Phaedra that they should just continue to be cordial when they are in a group setting but other than that their friendship was dead.
Well, we will have to wait until next episode to see how this unfolds.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think there is any chance Kandi and Phaedra will be friends again? Will Kenya and Matt find a way to work things out? Can Momma Joyce learn to mind her own business? Let me know in the comments.
