The show opens at Kandi’s clothing store where the women are joining Kandi on her sex freak radio show. Apparently clothing stores aren’t just great places to throw parties, they also make excellent radio studios. Now I don’t consider myself old fashioned, but I do think there are somethings women just shouldn’t talk about in public – let alone national TV and the internet. If people wanna pee on each other in the privacy of their own home, that’s fine by me. But I certainly don’t want to hear about it or have a conversation about it. When you make Kim Z blush, there’s a problem. Kandi was disappointed that the women weren’t giving her any good material to work with, so she brought out a male stripper to sexually assault Sheree and liven things up a little.
Cynthia is planning her wedding. *yawn* Her stylist/wedding planner/dude who wears sunglasses indoors thinks they can plan the whole thing for under a million dollars. If Cynthia has a million dollars to spend she should get something a little nicer than Ikea furniture for her house. Just sayin.
Brielle is taking after her mother in the gold digging department. She wanted a diamond ring like her mamma’s and she scammed that ring onto her finger like a pro. Kim fell for the whole “promise ring” story hook line and sinker.
Kandi and her music crew discuss how they are going to dumb down the ring song so that Kim will be able to sing it. Kandi suggests she rap-rings it since real-singing is impossible for her. Then we have to listen to the obligatory 5 minutes of Kandi bitching about Kim not paying her for Tardy for the Party.
I’m really getting tired of listening to Kandi talk about Kim non stop. She basically agreed to let Kim keep all of the profits from Tardy for the Party, so why is she complaining now? Kim is selfish, we all know this, no surprise there. But Kandi is supposed to be a business woman. In my opinion, all this complaining is making Kandi look a lot worse than it’s making Kim look. Instead of complaining so much, Kandi should probably be thanking Kim because without her, she wouldn’t have a story line or even be relevant on the show.
Next we see Fakedra and Apollo returning to Atlanta. They brought the baby with them too, they didn’t have a choice because the safe haven laws in Atlanta are only good for 7 days after the birth and Fakedra was laid up during that time so now she’s chained to the gross little Chinese thing and can’t frolic around Atlanta the way she used to.
Fakedra is unable to walk due to her week old c-section so Apollo leaves the baby in the car to carry her up the stairs. Fakedra decided to name the baby Aiden and Apollo decided to name him Adonis. They can’t come to an agreement so they’re going to just call him by two different names.
NeNe arrives at Kim’s house. She hugs the girls hello and then honks Brielle’s new boobies. Brielle shows NeNe her promise ring. NeNe says in her interview that a mother needs to lead by example and that the jury is still out on those girls. The jury may be out, but I think we’re all pretty sure which way they’re leaning.
NeNe is going through a divorce and needs a friend to talk to. Kim – as always – finds a way to turn a conversation about NeNe’s divorce into a conversation about the divorce Big Poppa refuses to get from his wife. Kim is incapable of thinking about someone other than herself for more than 3 minutes at a time. I don’t know why NeNe keeps trying to talk to Kim about her problems, it’s never gonna happen.
Kim’s parents invited Kandi and her mom over to their house for dinner. Kim introduces Kandi and her father, and when they tell her they’ve already met she was surprised. That’s what you get for pouring wine in your coffee cup at 9am.
Kim and Kandi play a recording of Greg dishing about his marriage problems on the radio. There is some debate over whether or not he knew he was being recorded. According to Greg he spent $300,000 to make NeNe famous and now he wants that money back.
Over at the gym Sheree and Lawrence are also talking about the radio show. I agree with everyone that what Greg said was wrong, but I don’t think it was all that much worse than NeNe talking about Greg in her Bravo interviews or bringing cameras with her to the lawyers office.
Out in the car Kandi plays the re-worked ring song for Kim. Now that there isn’t any actual singing involved, Kim loves it. Personally, I didn’t like the song the first time and I still don’t like it. I think the problem is the hook, it just doesn’t flow right. But unfortunately, it’s been stuck in my head for the past day now and I’m about to start playing Money Can’t Buy You Class just to get rid of it!
Sheree meets the fake Doc for lunch to discuss his little white lie about having a PhD. I am really curious to know why he even showed up for this meeting. Did he really think there was any way in the world he could spin this situation to make himself not look like a total douche?
Sheree was very calm when explaining to Tiy-E that she feels like she doesn’t know who he is and that he isn’t being honest with her. If there was ever a situation for someone to yell “Who gon check me boo?!” it was now. But Sheree remained totally calm throughout the entire lunch which was incredibly disappointing.
Tiy-E explains that everything is really Sheree’s fault because she didn’t make an effort to get to know his son when he answered the phone that one time. He also didn’t like that she didn’t make more of an effort to come see him when he was in town and needed her to drive him around. Sheree points out that if he wanted to see her he could have invited her to dinner. But he thinks it’s wrong for a woman to expect a man to feed her in order to spend time with her. According to the Love Doctor, hanging out in a Holiday Inn hotel room is a perfectly acceptable 3rd date.
Finally Sheree asks him point blank if he’s a doctor or not. He pulls a folded white paper out of his pocket and claims that it’s his college transcripts. Sheree asks if she can see them and he says he will be more than happy to show them to her, just as soon as she drops her pants and proves to him that she is in fact a woman. Sheree isn’t interested in making this trade off. Obviously Tiy-E couldn’t possibly show her his papers without getting something in return so he tells her “peace and love” and walks off down the road, because he apparently still doesn’t have a car or a woman to drive him around.
NeNe shows up for her first day of work, and right away she finds Greg’s recording on the internet. Her boss comes over and tells NeNe that things like this can get her fired. Huh? Has she not seen The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Did she not know who she was hiring or what kind of show she was on?
After work NeNe attempts to have a conversation with Greg in the kitchen. But it wasn’t really much of a conversation. NeNe talked for a while and then Greg was sorta like “Thank you for your time, but I don’t know who you are. Sorry.” and walked back down to his basement hide out. I don’t know why, but I kinda expected NeNe to kick him in the back as he was walking down the stairs. I guess I’ve been watching a bit too much Teen Mom. Amber is affecting my thought process.
Next week Kim sings (sorta), Sheree get’s fired (she had a job?), Fakedra get’s peed on (but not in the fun sexy way Kandi was talking about), and Peter tries to explain to NeNe that he is never going to leave Cynthia for her.
The fake doc is on twitter. He hasn’t tweeted in a while, but this is his name if you want to follow him: @Drtiye He has a website too. With poetry. And prayers. :| Enter at your own discretion.
