We learned on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that Apollo lied about Kenya offering him sexual favors, putting the other cast mates in an awkward position for believing him and treating Kenya like a homewrecker. Not saying she’s a saint now, but she’s not as bad, right? Kandi spilled the news to Phaedra that Apollo was lying all this time, and Phaedra was a little sympathetic. (A very little.) She agreed to take the high route and apologize to Kenya. I mean, it’s not Kenya's fault Apollo is a dirtbag.
Speaking of Apollo, he met with a divorce lawyer for advice. He told the lawyer he fears Phaedra will try and divorce him while he’s in jail, and if she does, she’ll have the upper hand in the divorce. Considering she’s the one with all of the money (and the kids) anyway, I’m not sure what exactly Apollo is attempting to beat Phaedra at. He’s obviously still very hurt Phaedra didn’t show up for his sentencing and has been less than supportive. He says he loves her—he despises everything about her, but he loves her. Yikes!
The highlight of last night’s RHOA had to be the explosive confrontation between Porsha and Cynthia. Porsha sets up a meeting with Cynthia to discuss the issues they’re having between them. You may recall Porsha made comments about Cynthia being a flip-flopper and playing both sides. Whether it was Hurricane Nene or Tropical Storm Kenya, Cynthia easily swayed whichever way the wind blew. Cynthia didn’t take kindly to the comments and had her own things to say about Porsha when Porsha found herself on the frontlines of negative media attention.
Porsha and Cynthia’s meeting didn’t start on the right foot. Porsha arrived an hour late (aggravating Cynthia), but what made matters worse was that she didn’t apologize for her tardiness. From then on, Cynthia’s attitude was at Level Orange and there was no talking her down.
Needless to say, the whole meeting was pointless. Cynthia wasn’t trying to hear anything Porsha had to say; Porsha wasn’t paying any mind to Cynthia’s attitude; and the only good thing that came out of the whole thing was the Cynthia’s tea about Porsha sleeping with a married man for handbags and cars. Gotta love those shady palm trees!
