Before I start my recap, I’ll be honest about something. I’ve never really been a fan of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Especially for the past two seasons, but let me tell you something, I am back and a HUGE fan once again! Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered this Sunday and started off with a bang!
Sunday’s episode begins with NeNe Leakes opening her wedding gifts from stars like Teresa Giudice who she refers to as a “rich bitch” after opening her gift. She then opens other gifts from co-stars like Porsha Stewart.
Speaking of Porsha Stewart, she is going through a lot after her very public divorce came to headlines all over the media. It’s crazy to think that Porsha once had the “perfect life” and now she’s at a completely opposite place. Porsha’s having a hard time and reveals when speaking to her lawyer that she learned about her divorce through the media. It’s disgusting that Porsha found out about her divorce through TMZ rather than her own husband, Kordell. It’s fine that Kordell wanted a divorce but he could have at least had the decency to tell his wife, the women who was taking care of her stepson and the women he once loved. What I found nice is that Porsha told her lawyer regardless of what Kordell did that she is willing to fight for her marriage if Kordell still wants too. It is nice to see someone put their pride aside and try to save their marriage rather then quickly throwing it away. Porsha and Kordell are set to have a divorce deposition but asks her lawyer to see if Kordell wants to work on a list of things that Porsha requests in order to save this marriage.
Back over at Cynthia, she is currently moving her modeling school to another location and gets a visit from Kenya Moore who she says she hasn’t spoken to in months. It’s clear Bravo had something to do with this visit. While Kenya visits, Cynthia explains that she is going to throw a party for her new place and invites Kenya. Cynthia explains that Kenya probably needs to mend things with a lot of the ladies who she has problems with. Kenya then brings up that she and NeNe are actually in drama because NeNe invited Kenya’s ex, Walter to her wedding! Great! Were back at hearing this nonsense about Kenya’s ex, Walter. I don’t understand why Kenya is mad that NeNe invited Walter when Kenya was the one who brought Walter around the cast while they were dating. It’s obvious Walter was going to build a relationship with the RHOA men considering he was with them so much.
We are later introduced to Pheardra’s son Dylan! He is absolutely adorable. Phaedra has moved into a new home and it looks great. So does Apollo 😉
Back at Kandi’s home, she is getting ready to get married for the first time to her boyfriend of two years, Todd. Kandi opens up about her mother not being okay with Todd anymore and responds to all the hate that she gets regarding if she is a sugar mama. Kandi explains that she was the one who wrote TLC’s big hit scrubs insinuating that she is NO sugamama and knows better. Todd thinks he and Kandi’s mom should have a discussion with Kandi to patch things up. Kandi doesn’t seem like she wants to go through with it but knows she eventually has too.
Porsha and NeNe are having lunch and NeNe is shocked when she notices Porsha is still wearing her wedding ring. Porsha explains she still feels married. Later, we see Porsha stop by her mothers house after the divorce deposition. Porsha looks completely broken and it is sad to see. She explains to her mother and sister that things didn’t go well and when she asked Kordell to look over a list of things on how they could work it out, he flat out said no. Porsha was in tears and you could see her sister and mother in pain for her. Porsha explains that Kordell didn’t ever have a reasoning on why he wanted a divorce but insinuates that her ex-husband could be gay because at times he didn’t physically want her. That’s a big accusation to bring out and odd considering she wanted to stay with him even though there could be a chance that she believed he was gay. Regardless, Kordell is a selfish human being who needs to apologize to the person he once loved. I thought Porsha’s mother was making great points. She’s a smart lady. Porsha is just upset that the marriage is over considering she thought it was going to be forever making sure she notes that the tears aren’t for Kordell.
It’s time to for Cynthia’s party and all the ladies are present! Things are awkward considering Kenya has problems with Porsha, NeNe, and Phaedra! Kenya approaches Porsha and starts speaking about Kordell saying she heard about the situation. Porsha looks at her confused saying she knows considering she got a text from Kenya when it all went down. Couldn’t help but laugh when that was said. NeNe planned to ignore Kenya at the party but Kenya approaches NeNe explaining the reason she didn’t come to her wedding. Kenya says it was because NeNe had the audacity to invite her ex-boyfriend, Walter. The two go at it and NeNe is over Kenya. Kenya continues to act outrageous and NeNe is hilarious while she blows her off. I’m excited to announce that the Real Housewives of Atlanta is BACK and from watching the previews on what is to come-this is definitely going to be one of the best seasons, yet!
