Recap: A Housewives History Lesson

Ep 8: Kandi and Phaedra meet Peg Leg Ron, and Porsha learns the Underground Railroad was not a real train.

Well the girls finally ended the fighting, got the A.C. and the bus going, and made it to Savannah. Although it wasn't exactly a smooth ride.

Porsha shed a few tears after a discussion of marriage left her feeling that the ladies ganged up on her. Maybe NeNe's bonding trip was a bit premature...

Upon arrival at their Savannah mansion, the Housewives were greeted by this:

And a warning that there were a lot of ghosts roaming around the halls of the place. Now frankly I started to get a bit spooked, because that seemed eerily like the start of every horror film in existence, right? That woman was way to friendly and disappeared real fast after dropping that little haunted tidbit.

Clearly Kenya was on the same wavelength, as she took that opportunity to jump out at everyone and try to scare them.

However no one really reacted, probably because they were all more frightened by the fact that there was so much drama before they even reached Savannah. Ghosts may not have disturbed Kenya, but she was disturbed by the fact that NeNe didn't stand up for herself and give the ladies a piece of her mind. And after a little coaxing, NeNe introduced the ladies a little light NayNay sass and told them they needed to get with the program and be on time. Everyone seemed to be cool with that, except for Kandi:

Who does not like to be talked to like a child, and Phaedra:

Who very quickly read down newcomer Mynique when she tried to speak up on NeNe's behalf. Poor Mynique didn't seem to know what hit her! She kind of seemed oblivious, while everyone else was like oh no she didn't! Exhibit A:

So after the awkward dress down, Kandi and Phaedra left the haunted mansion to clear their heads and in the process met Peg Leg Ron. Who's Peg Leg Ron you ask? He gives ghost tours of Savannah in a giant tourist-filled hearse.

I figured he must have brought the tour over there to show them the spirit of fun, which clearly died before this girls' trip could even get going.

Side Note: I think the wheels were turning in Phaedra's head after meeting Peg Leg Ron. Phaedra's Phinest Ghost Tours of Atlanta...

The next morning Cynthia went over to inform Mynique 1) that she needs to glam herself out more if she wants to hang with these ladies and 2) that she got read to filth last night and needs to learn how to throw some shade of her own. Evidently the secret is looking good, donning a wig, and having at least two gay men with you at all times.

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
