The ladies are packing up and leaving Africa and I have to say HALLELUIAH! Marlo’s 15 minutes of fame needs to be up. She should have never been on that trip in the first place, and we all know she was only on it to get more face time in front of the cameras. She is not a cast member – girl needs to go.
I have to say Kim has come along way in the last year. She is so much more tolerable than she used to be. Kim was always my least favorite RHOA cast member, but I dare say she has toned down the attitude and classied it up. Okay, so she still has the most vulgar mouth out of them all, but at least she seems so much happier than when she was with “Big Poppa.” She no longer has this negative aura about her. She would probably have less stress in her life if she would get a real assistant though and fire that Sweetie woman. Sweetie does not have much ambition/motivation/doesn’t take initiative.
Cynthia comes home and gives her daughter, Noelle, goodies from Africa. Peter asks where is his? She admits she forgot. Peter now tells her that he’s planning a big one year anniversary party. To me, this is all for show. They are not a happily married couple. They try to hide it, but man, the camera shows everything – and it’s not just the editing. It is my opinion that Peter wants to show everyone how in loooove he is with Cynthia so they will think a) he’s a wonderful husband, and b) they are happy together. I don’t see this working out too well, but interested to find out!
Cynthia then tells Peter that Nene’s son, Bryson, has been arrested AGAIN for stealing something stupid like razors from Wal-Mart. This is the son of the woman who was yelling at Sheree “I’m RICH b*tch!” Then tells the cameras that she’s so proud of herself for being able to pay CASH for her son’s car which cost $13,500. Now, I’m happy to see that she didn’t go out and buy him an Aston Martin and stayed within her means, but paying cash for a Dodge Charger with a negotiated price of $13,500 is not that big of accomplishment for someone claiming to be as wealthy as she is. Now he’s stealing a razor from Wal-Mart? Hmmm. Not saying he stole it because he couldn’t afford it, but there’s still something fishy here. At least she will be able to pay his attorney fees now.
Kandi: Did she or did she not say that Kim would never have held a little black baby in Africa? What I heard, is what Kandi is also saying, that she said she couldn’t picture Kim in Africa at all – which didn’t have anything to do with black people. Looks like Sheree is just stirring the pot. Kim is not racist and I feel sometimes that it’s just an easy target to say she is since she’s the only white cast member. I love baby KJ too. How cute is he?!
Kandi and Phaedra visit Sheree’s lot where she’s in the process of “building” her house. The lot has yet to be cleared – nothing has been done on it at all. Kandi and Phaedra wonder if Sheree is having financial problems. Sheree is seen talking with Kim and further stirring the pot and creating a rift with Kandi in regards to the comment made at the African orphanage. I do like Sheree, but I feel like she’s just trying to cause trouble in this case. Kandi and Phaedra arrive at Kim’s. Phaedra gives her commentary on the flowers walking up to the door. Everything that girl does cracks me. “Mmmm… she got some impatiens. Mmm, girl. Nice nice.” haha! She acts as though she’s judging Kim on every step she takes towards her new home. As an outsider, it’s hilarious.
Peter questions Nene about why Bryson is in jail and how she’s going to handle it. She explains he’s been in jail 5 days and she does not plan to bail him out. She’s planning to let him wait it out 30 days in order for a lesson to be learned. If that were me, I would make my son spend 24 hours in the holding cell and then I would get him out. Bryson keeps getting in minor trouble here and there and this may be the thing that will straighten him out. However, I agree with Peter’s point of view that 24 hours is all it takes to scare him straight. He wasn’t in there for drugs, drunk driving, killing anybody… he stole some small thing from Wal-Mart. It is time for him to come home.
Back to the uncomfortable luncheon at Kim’s house. Kim, Sheree, Phaedra, and Kandi are discussing the African trip. Kim is just glaring at Kandi the entire time and you can feel the elephant in the room that no one is discussing. I sense things are going to blow up at any second. Kandi can’t even look at Kim in the face. And BAM! The claws are out and the screaming begins. Some great lines came out of the fight so far though “Black baby, white baby, purple baby, pink baby… I love babies, b*tch!” and “I didn’t say nothin’ about a black baby!” (and this is where my mom thinks, “why does she even watch these shows?” haha). So the argument turns into would Kim have gone to South Africa or not if she had not just had a baby. I am on Kandi’s side when she says that she does not see Kim going. Kim just likes the finer things in life, doesn’t want to get her nails or wigs dirty, etc. I don’t think that it means Kandi has a low opinion of Kim, as Kim thinks, I think it just means that it’s just not Kim’s thing. My friends like to go camping, I do not. I am not less of a person because I don’t like to go camping. That is all Kandi is trying to say about Kim and South Africa.
Next episode looks good… it’s Peter’s party he’s throwing for their anniversary and of course Peter says something offensive about Cynthia’s sister and that creates a whole family feud. Way to go, Peter. Looking forward to watching that drama though! 🙂
