No. 2 - Kenya Get Me a Ring?

Evidently not. After one of the more awkward dinners in Housewives history, where everyone except Kenya seems to be aware that Walter has no intention of proposing to Kenya, Kenya has a talk with Walter, which ends up being even more awkward than the dinner. Evidently Walter saying "anything can happen in three days" led Kenya to believe he was definitely proposing to her. And even if Walter was considering, Kenya's constant pressuring only helped to dissuade him.

So after this revelation, Kenya storms off into the Anguilla woods to go sulk alone in the dark. At which point, Phaedra realizes maybe someone should go get her so she's not sitting out alone in a strange country by herself, so off she trots to her rescue. As Kenya tearfully explains the situation, Phaedra opens up her patented "everybody knows" playbook to share some wisdom about marriage: "Everybody knows the only person looking for a husband is somebody that ain't never had one, honey, because it's more work than what you think it is." Amen!

Nene, still don't trust Kandi! She is always talking negative or behind someone's back. She ALWAYS have a sideways comment, If you do a song with Kandi, just remember Ms. Lawrence, He never got paid. I guess she was trying to collect from him what she didn't get paid from Kim. Just watch her!

If Kandi agrees to produce a song with NeNe then she better get out the contract papers so she don't mess it up like she did with Kim and then later get mad cause Kim made money off it. 

 

Now with that said is this to say why NeNe has been buttering up to Kandi? Just to use her to produce a song.

Kenya called her self reading Cynthia, I see she did not challenge Nene!  Cynthia being an international model probably knows Vanessa Williams better than Kenya does. Glad to see Kandi and Nene getting along. I always felt Kim was manipulating Kandi and Sheree!  Kandi should have put Nene on that song "Tardy For The Party" with Kim, she would have gotten paid!

Go NeNe.  I almost always agree with NeNe.   I love that she is with Greg again.  I left my husband, got divorced and remarried him two years later.   I flirted with other men when I was ready to leave the relationship.  As far as Kenya and Walter are concerned they are not ready for marriage.  I guess I should say, he is not ready to marry her.  When you are in love with the person you are with you don't behave the way Kenya did.  I feel bad for her but she had six proposals.  Kenya needs to play hard to get and stop begging for a ring.  Look at NeNe.

 

Great Season.... It was time for change.

I believe that NeNe does bring the drama if she doesn't like you or don't know you. I feel that she is loyal to Cynthia but the rest of the ladies aren't loyal to her either.Cynthia is starting to hold her own and show the world who she really is without NeNe and I think that Peter is her backbone. She seems to be happy in her marriage.  I like Phaedra but one minute she is so southern bell and the next showing the buns on national TV to get Apollo attention is ridiculous.Whatever happened to a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets. Phaedra should have checked Apollo being the husband and Kenya being the friend. Kenya should be flirting with the man that she took on the trip but for some reason like NeNe said they seem so disconnected. Her old title cannot win the key to a man heart. Kandi shouldn't be having sex in the hot tub and broadcasting it to the public just not a good look. Porsha needs to embrace the family legacy but while she is rich just find her own niche for success.

Nene has been bad mouthing Kandi since day one. She wants something from her. Nene is a user, just ask John.

Referring to "Finding Apollo". Yeah, he is right, he really needs to go and find himself. He's about a flimsy excuse of a man, how old is he "17". "Deer in headlights".  I always thought Phaera was much much more of a woman then Apollo could handle. Waiting to see next week!

I cannot help but wonder why Apollo came and talked with Kenya and Phaedra. Makes me wonder if he and Kenya had something going on. None of the other men moved and seem like the other ladies would of come down. Just a thought!!!

Next I think NENE needs to be more careful, I believe Gregg there for wrong reasons. Other than that I enjoyed the Ladies trip to Anguilla. The wedding was so romantic.

I think NeNe makes this show, love her or hate her tis this group would not be watchable with out her. Last seaon I didn't care for Kandi much because I felt that she was an instigator running back and telling everything, but got a taste of her own medicine when one of her besties, She'ree did the same thing to her with Kim, the black baby incident. I love Pheadra, the lie took me by surprise, why I don't know they all tend to stretch the truth. Cynthia is growing on me this year, she and Peter seem to be very happy together, but then I thought the samething about Pheadra and Apollo.  Kenya is a jack ass, and needs some attention from a therapist. Who cares what her title was back in the day,she's showing that even though you have that title you have no class. Porsha, cute and corkey, loved the way she stood up for herself against Ms USA / America, whatever. Kim, I'm glad she's gone. All I ever heard from her was a bunch of curse words and how much help she needed to do nothing. Her sidekick sweetie, really, I know she's probably making some real money but is it worth your self respect?

Kenya is the show but she is messy as hell.  She needs medication and if she already has them they need to be adjusted.  There is nothing more unattractive than desperation...this girl was almost threatening the man into proposing to her.

 

I love Nene and Greg's relationship...that is definitely grown folks love.   I hope they get back together.

 

Porsha needs to stop defining herself by her grandfather's legacy.  Her husband looks like he is not all there...like the elevator does not go all the way to the top.

 

I love Kandi and her new man and also like the way he is into her and try to avoid the drama.

NeNe wants something.  That's the only reason she extended the olive branch to Kandi.   She either wants a record made or some help from Todd in the land of TV.  It's called networking, not genuinely making up.

Kenya is a hot mess! Nene...well....she appears to be more mature, yet she instigates a lot of what happens, such as asking Porsha to tell her what happened between her and Kenya which led to the fight. Though in my opinion, Kenya was totally unreasonable. Porsha was just expressing "how she felt" as Nene asked her to. Kenya threw the "first punch" by calling the woman the "B" word and her favorite line is obviously: "who are you and why are you talking to me" (the same line she said to Cynthia's assistant at the Bailey agency fiasco). Yes, she is a part of history, yet be secure in that. You have the title honey....no matter what, no one can take that away from you. Get over it and move on!  

 

Nene also kept asking Kenya about her relationship with Walter which it doesn't take much for Kenya to go "off' because girlfriend has some serious issues! I love Porsha...yes...she is young but I believe she is genuine. Cynthia.....classy woman who seems to have found her voice this season. I love her "fashion" which is so off the cuff at times and at other times very classy. Phaedra cracks me up with her faces and comments, yet I was disappointed at the comment she made about Cynthia not coming to Aiden's party and more disappointed when she lied about it. Yes, she apologized, but the damage was done. I really thought she was above that.

I hate that I missed NeNe and Kandi's reconciliation... Was a lil late to the watch party. Anywho, glad NeNe was the bigger woman ((as always)) and extended the olive branch. I would love to see their friendship blossom. Phaedra may have her ways but I love that she has such a nurturing spirit. She really made me think when she told Kenya, "Everybody knows... the only people that want to be married are those that never have been..." Phae is growing on me this season. As for Miss Bridesmaid not quite Bride... She needs to focus on herself right now. Learn to truly love and honor herself before she self-distructs! Everybody knows security in knowing who you are, a genuine friendship and communication lead to healthy relationships... which in turn leads to a healthy marriage! Allow the man to be the man Kenya. Just kick back and enjoy love and companionship and trust that when the time is right, the man will propose ON HIS OWN with NO PRESSURE! Also, its about time for Kenya and Porsha to stop the darn madness. Grow the F up already!!! I'm glad Kenya was a womam for once and settled her differences with Cynthia. Cause you will NEVER try to sneak READ Mrs. Cynthia boo! Know your place hunty! Can't get enough of my FAVE Mrs. NeNe Leakes!!!!! Keep doing you babes... See you all next week?

I was happy to see NeNe approach Kandi to discuss the issues. I don't think Kandi was going to do it. Anyway, I hope they will really get to know one another and put the craziness aside and build on what they started in Anguilla.

 

Kenya set herself up for what happened to her. A classy woman will never have to pressure a man or bring up marriage to a man every two minutes! Just how long does she think the marriage will last when she pressures or talks a man to death about popping the question? That's not normal to keep bringing up marriage to a man every 2 minutes! She might as well have asked him to marry her and had a ring for him!!! You can't want "tradition" one way (him asking her) while at the same time asking him when is he going to ask her.

 

Porsha is cool. She doesn't back down to Kenya and that is a good thing!

Love Phaedra’s line about marriage.  It is a lot of work and one should wait on the right person.  Phaedra has a compassionate  and forgiving spirit; it shows her upbringing.

These women are terrible. Nothing like women being used to bully other women and be thugs. Guess one could say--what do you do for a living --oh I am a thug. They just go from one to the other calling each other horrible names. Guess Porsha fits right in after all.

Sorry yu've added two new characters [definitely characters] Porsha is very immature and phony, very boring to watch/listen to. And Kenya is a snot. Absolutely no personality but into herself. I miss Kim. I always enjoyed seeing what new "mess" she'd gotten herself into. Love Miss Lawrence so much and the rest of the ladies. Rethink those two who have been added last. Kenya and Porsha. I'm going to stop watching if both of them continue on the show. Thanks for reading.

Phaedra's best 'everybody knows' to date....  Everybody knows Housewives know! (well at least some of them, some don't seem to have a clue and others want to battle).

 Nobody has been talking about Kandi producing a song for Nene. All they did was make up and acknowledged each other's success so where you get that.

 @msjeff I agree, Kim seem to try to keep a lot of drama between anybody she was not getting along with.

 @msjeff I saw the whole NeNe, Sheree, Kim, and Kandi thing differently. I think that NeNe and Kim were alike in a lot of ways and this is why they bumped heads. The one thing that Kim had up on NeNe is that NeNe has hated on ALL the other women (except Cynthia) at some given point. I feel that NeNe did not want to be friends with Sheree, Kandi, and Phaedra because they were friends with Kim. NeNe has it out for Kim and to be honest I can't see a reason as to why. Kim has done no more than any of the other girls. Kim was just an easy target and she was the second highest paid housewife in Atlanta.

 @debharrington Nene and Kandi got along, until Kim got in the picture.  Kandi should have included Nene in that record deal!  If she had Kandi would have gotten paid.

 @cheekybab  At age 34 Apollo lost 6 years of his life in prison... He's feeling a gap, which is understandable... Now if you've not walked in the same shoes, then it would be hard to understand... Go back and listen to what he'd said in episode 9 while chatting up with Peter and Kordell at Bar One... IJS

 

Everyone deserves at second chance in life, so don't judge him as  flimsy excuse of a man... Phaedra loves her man of choice, you don't have to live with him as he's growing into manehood / fatherhood... I glad that Peter has taken him under his wing... IMO

 @RHOAlabama The Gregg and NeNe situation is kind of strange. I can't wait to see how it unfolds. Very good point on Apollo's reason for wanting to go and talk with Phaedra and Kenya. Apollo knows that this woman has a thing for him and he may very well be feeding into it.

 @marob Kenya is NOT the show.

 

And why are you worried about Porsha's "legacy"? She is proud of her family, so what's the problem?

mrs478

 @devfan13 I don't know what NeNe's reasoning is for the make up but time will tell. I will say that in the past both NeNe and Kandi have both thrown blows at each other. On the flip side NeNe has not thrown any blows at Kandi this season but Kandi has been throwing them left and right. I can't wait to see how everything plays out.

 Kandi - as for as Nene is concerned, remember: "fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me. Nene is NOT friend material, never will be. That's just who she is. She can never 'move over'!

Kenya needs medication, and if she's already on some, she needs more!

 @kimmie10

Kandi should not have listened to Kim in the first place. But I'm glad Nene fixed things with Kandi as she tried with Kim. I have to give it up to Nene; she gets to leave RHOA on good terms with Bravo and the ladies.

 @mrs478   I think Kim & NeNe are alike in a lot of ways too, but I must say Kim has also hated on most of the housewives at some point as well.  Actually, most of the time, Kim & NeNe were joking, talking smack, etc. about other housewives together.  I think the production of 'Tardy for the Party' is what ended this relationship & it's escalated over the years.  Kim & NeNe thought of the song together & I think that situation could have been handled differently.  From what I've read & what was said on the last reunion, NeNe was speaking to producers about the show 1st & extended the invitation to Sheree & Kim, so why is it so hard for Kim to understand that NeNe felt betrayed when Kim hooked up with the 'new girl' for the production of the song & cut her out.  I think this friendship could have been repaired w/o all the outside influences.

 Sorry, if my 'friend' was sitting w/a group of people making fun of MY singing, I sure as HELL wouldn't want her singing WITH me!!!

Nene never likes ANYBODY who outshines her!

 @mrs478  @RHOAlabama My take on that was Apollo didn't want his wife out in the dark parking lot. He came out to get them to come back. He's seen his share of bad people in the world.

Kenya holds no fascination for Apollo. If he's going to stray and put his marriage in jeoprody, and I don't think he is, he'd go for someone much younger and much hotter. Kenya's not worth the risk.

 Nene has shown to be friend material. She get to know people for herself and not develop her opinion based on what soemone else thinks and she has proven to be loyal.

 @airtonya  @mrs478  @imarelic100  @msjeff Airtonya I have also voiced my opinion concerning Kandi. You are correct, b/c Kandi still seems to be holding on the all of the past drama. In fact she is the only one doing so.  Kandi is one that throws the rocks and hides her hands............always has. NeNe doesn't do that, she is pretty bold with the way she does things and for that I can respect her for. If you a hater then your'e just a hater. Now NeNe is bold with what she does but she is always saying she's not a hater.......WHATEVER! My point in this particular conversation is that NeNe should not blame Kim or anybody else for the beef with she and Kandi since she is such a good judge of character. #ownit

@mrs478 @imarelic100 @msjeff Like I've said in previous posts....on "Hairstylist tell All RHOA" Derek J. Said it was Kandi that started the NeNe confrontation in the Second Season...Kandi was talking behind NeNe's back .....just like she is doing now in her last few blogs....Kandi doesn't fool me.

mrs478
mrs478

 @imarelic100  @msjeff You hit the nail on the head imarelic100. Kim had nothing to do with NeNe and Kandi getting along. NeNe points out that she is a good judge of character so why couldn't she have judged Kandi for herself and stop blaming Kim. NeNe condradicts herself all the time. I advise Kandi to feed her with a long handle spoon because like she said "NeNe has motives." These are all grown women and I think it's silly when some of them say that I didn't like you because of this person or that person. #ownit
