If there a take away from Episode 19, It’s Kenya Moore, love her or HATE her, she is a force to be reckoned with. With the exception of Kandi and Cynthia she demolished Nene, Porsha, and her arch enemy Phaedra Parks. The dust up with Peter and Gregg left me a bit uneasy.
Kenya, Apollo, and Phaedra
On the surface Phaedra Parks is a very intelligent women, married to dim witted husband. Its difficult to feel sorry for her. After Apollo humiliates her. Ignores her and hugs friends. Insensitive to her pain, leaves her alone at their hotel room and refuses to get a room key for the mother of his tw0 sons ,so she can enter their guest room and she blames Kenya? This is such a pedestrian act she reducing herself to the ranks of Springer women. Her friends get it. The men tried to protect Apollo from Apollo and the women get it as they shook their head and said why, Apollo?
I think I’m Sorry Baby, how bout some condoms for your birthday
Next morning the seemingly apologetic Apollo brings her an tired exotic flower. Phaedra is not buying it. So he stepped it up a notch. A surprise birthday party. So far he hasn’t really apologized about Kenya or leaving her on her own waiting for a room key. No Happy Birthday I Love you’s. Phaedra, listen, I want to thank you for being the mother of my children and, you know, let’s just continue to move forward. Dude, Really? The lights are on, but no bodies home.
Kenya Are You Serious?
A lil deja vu in Meh-he-co. Pillow talk part du. Kenya Moore has replaced Nene Leakes as the host. “Check Please”
The format is still the same, personal question. Messy, messy,messy.
Kenya asks Miss Lawrence a question about cheating. Lawrence believes every man cheats and approves of one night stands. At this point if your married,silence is your best friend. How so nevah. Apollo, who should have super glued his lips together. Speaks!!! Apollo thinks, no matter what, all people cheat: While, Apollo doesn’t think Phaedra is cheating on him now, but he knows that she will and, as a personal favor to him, her husband, he just asks that she wear a condom. Phaedra says if you want to cheat, you should not get married. “
If Phaedra, had a Bazooka in her purse and blew Apollo’s head off, she would be acquitted by any jury in the nation.
Porsha is asked what is the difference between young and older men? Porsha said, older are better with the romance because they are slower. Well, hells bells, this pushed Nene over the edge and she calls, Porsha ignorant.
Then she asks Kandi if she was menopausal? Nene, really? Who’s Ignorant? This question pushes Todd’s button. Todd tells Nene about presentation(he’s trying to soften Ms Leakes choice of words ” Ignorant”) she’s not feeling it and Todd can go……
Kenya attempts to ask Nene a question about Marlo and their relationship. Nene shut her down. Nene’s hypocrisy isn’t lost on Kandi and others.
Gregg has unfinished business
A few minutes before war breaks out, Gregg ask’s to talk to Peter.
Kenya splashed gasoline on Phaedra by bringing up their on going fight. “That brings me to the elephant in the room.” Kenya asks Phaedra why her fireside chat with Apollo upset her Phaedra in classic style says “First of all, I have asked you not to speak to my husband outside my company. You should respect that if you think that we will ever have a friendship because you’re crossing the line and you’ve done so many times. Kenya! We are not interested in being friends with you! What she didn’t know that she Apollo had already squashed the beef with a hand shake.
Kenya….knowing Apollo hasn’t discussed their conversation with Phaedra went for it… or BOOM!
“YOU may not want to be friends but you can’t speak for Apollo”
Her statement effected the women as to say DAMM Bitch-No you didn’t!
Ugly it got, with Porsha leading the charge. “You can’t understand if you’ve ever been married” Kenya drops the belt and tells Porsha that she’s never really been married either because she “basically admitted [she] was Kordell’s beard.” This sends Porsha over the edge screaming at a glass breaking tones “YOU A MOTHER F—KING LIE”
In another room, Gregg is uncharacteristically annoyed. Gregg Leakes often the sane one, is a bit off hinged. He is annoyed at Peter, annoyed at something that happened weeks ago. HUH?
He is pissed at how Peter spoke to his wife at Kenya’s Charity Event. Gregg says Peter can bring whatever he wants to him, but never to get in his wife’s face again.
The ladies run to find out what’s happening and Nene immediately gets right in Peter’s face and tells him to stop getting involved in women’s business, aka, “trying to be a damn bitch.” Yes, Cynthia is there. Silent.
Gregg’s action doesn’t make sense, is some at Bravo pushing buttons?
