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

on Dec 21, 20130

Finally the girls seemed to loosen up and throw back a few cocktails...until the bomb was dropped that both Kandi and Phaedra dated Mynique's husband Chuck. And Mynique doesn't seem to know all the details, so yeah, it got awkward.



And then even more awkward when Mynique and Porsha somehow got into it when Porsha was joking the Mynique needs to ask her husband what the deal really is and Mynique found her voice and made a dig about Kordell. Just when we were all getting along...



Next week the not fun continues when Porsha cries. Again.

I think they should do an eppy a musical even of the Atlanta Housewives with Kermit the Frog, The Grouch in his trash can, Miss Piggy in all her glory, The Count, all the crew from Sesame Street who can show Ms. Porsha all about history, the real railroad vs. the underground railroad...I think then and only then she may just get it, as long as there are no sparkly shinning things around to distract her-- if so Miss Piggy will give her a HAAA YAAA karate chop and get her to focus again. The other ladies can do songs, dance a little, act and maybe just maybe the history lesson will finally get across, ohhh Porsha why bless your heart. Kermit can finish the eppy by singing-- it isn't easy being green....now that would be a great show.

Porsha girl please DO NOT embarrass us minority women anymore. Go back to school and refresh your education. WOW! I am shaking my head at you.

OMG I am not even american and I know what the underground railroad is, i am mortified that someone could be so ignorant to their own history that is so disrespectful to our ancestors she needs to bag her face for the rest of her life

NeNe was the most relatable Housewife when ROHA began in 2008 and won over alot of fans because of her one-of-a-kind blunt but relatable personality however it seems the more popular she became the more she lost herself and became a carbon copy of women most of don't relate to, prefer to avoid and can do without - the over-confident, arrogant, bragging, label-obsessed fakes that mistakenly believe having a little money makes them better than everyone else and who forget class cannot be bought or exchanged for anything else. It's too bad NeNe became the more successful Housewife because it seems to not have brought out the best in her and it's actually disappointing to watch her engage in more scenes of judgmental, vulgar putdowns causing her to lose once loyal fans - and perhaps changing the opinions of those with connections that once considered her a breath of fresh air - and it's also too bad because we meet the same people going up as we do going down.

 

I also don't get why NeNe felt the need to attack the always loyal Cynthia because it's just not cool to judge and discard your friends like that in public - and it was even more uncool and unsettling that NeNe's comments about her "strict upbringing" that were directed at Cynthia for allowing Noelle to have a "boy friend" because it's normal for 13-year-olds to notice the opposite sex and for parents to allow chaperoned outtings - and for NeNe to judge anyone's parenting is ridiculous when she stripped for dollar billls until she met and married Greg. Anyway - I don't know or like the "new" dyed-blonde weave wearing smug, attention hungry and condescending NeNe Leakes and wish she'd either get real or just go away already - seriously.

Bravo, I'd like to see Phaedra removed from the show, she is too busy with the babies, and other stuff.  I was tired of waiting for her so that the trip could start.  Why make me suffer?  I also would like to not suffer another season with Porsha.  Thank you

Where are these ladies blogs?  We hardly ever hear from Kandi...not cool.

I just don't like Kandi...I've tried, but she is such an instigator, passive-aggressive and is a bit on the ignorant side.  She has enough street smarts and common sense to make money, but a lot of that money came from writing dumb-a** lyrics to pop songs.

Were it not for the fact that we know this is filmed far in advance of when it's aired or the cast gets to see it all, one might wonder if Kandi behaved the way she did, putting herself out for criticism to take the burning embers off her mama.  Kandi's apparent surprise at the negative reaction to her entitled behavior must warm the cockles of where MJ's heart should be.   Increasingly it appears viewers may have given Kandi credit for having more brains & heart than she actually does.  Her appearance on WWHL with Fantasia was truly an eye opener....and not in a good way.  Her behavior in this episode undermines any thoughts that the WWHL behavior was the exception rather than the rule.  Porsha dug a hole & jumped in it, hands down.  But considering award winning musical wonderkid Kandi was incapable of coming up with the words to simple Christmas carols, she might re-think passing judgement on anyone elses intellect.  NOT equating carols with black history, just equating things commonly taught in grade school.  I also have serious doubts about most of these women having any legitimate religious scruples.  My impression is that if some of them attend church, it's more as a fashion show than anything remotely associated with a spiritual experience.  Most of their behavior is devoid of charity or unselfishness, much less godliness.

Porsha-  there's no excuse fo your stupidity. It's not like you have to work - and you have an assistant - god knows why and for what - so how about taking a few hours a week to read up on some history?

I'm sorry Phaedra, I love you but a newborn is no reason to be 4 hours late. I had a baby and the responsibility altered my schedule as well, but come on, would you be 4 hours late to work?... Get up earlier and prioritize your time.

Oh Porsha... I don't know what think. You are born and raised in Georgia, your grandfather has a civic rights legacy, and you really thought the Underground Railroad was a real railroad with a train? Wow! I was hoping you would use this season to show us viewers you are not a ditz. But it seems you really are.  As much as I like you, I think you should be off the show to stop embarrassing your grandfather's legacy. Oh and read the book about Harriet Tubman, you may learn something if you can even learn.

This was the one time I wanted to see Nene go off on someone, as Kandi needed to be put in her place.  How rude and uncouth.

That whole conversation Cynthia had w/Mynoque was ridiculous.  Bottom line Mynoque was out of line on more than ONE occasion and deserved to be read!

uuuuggghhh.... Y'all really need to get rid of Kandi.  Last week she was 3 hours late and saw nothing wrong with it, and last night she took the master suite which should have gone to Nene.  Kandi brings nothing to the show.  And she always sounds like she is talking with a mouthful of marbles.  Just. Get. Rid. of. Her.

This was the most worst thing for Porscha. What gave you the impression that the railroad was real? Did you miss your history class. Please take her off the show along with Kenya and find real women of Atlanta. Everytime they plan a girls vacation something goes wrong. Porscha needs to take time off and get over her controlling husband. I really feel sorry for her, she acts like without Kordell she can not live. well sweetie life goes on, stop disrespecting your former husband on national television. Trust and believe people are laughing at you. I know your grandfather turned in his grave after your crazy comment about the railroad. I am still in shock on your comment.

Full of laughter, shade and a few tears - this was the best episode and HWs trips ever!

Kandi and Phaedra had the right idea - walking around Savannah is the best way to see what a lovely, historically significant and well preserved city it truly is and the Wedding Cake Mansion is gorgeous too.

I watched the clip for next week...Seeing Porsha cry, I felt a LITTLE sorry for her, but I keep going back to how much of a princess she is and how she needs to grow up.  

 

NeNe was a good friend to reach out to her...I understand her disappointment that her and Porsha's friendship is one-sided...maybe it will change in the future, but NeNe should give her a break, considering the circumstances.

 

I felt embarrassed for Mynique.  She got completely read...I don't think that she was oblivious to it either--I just think that she was caught off guard, didn't have a response and could pretend as though she didn't notice the "read".  She seems like she is trying too hard on this trip...I guess I'll just have to wait and see.  Also, a great lesson that this trip demonstrated: if you are going to bring up your husband's romantic past to his exes, make sure that you don't try to insult the latter or act dismissive.  Mynique didn't have all of the facts (no thanks to Chuck!) and, once AGAIN, she had egg on her face.

Porsha, Porsha, Porsha, what were you thinking, I sure hope you were just "acting"  dumb, because that was embarrassing for not only you, but I'm sure your family and millions of viewers.  Please stop the airhead routine it is so not becoming of you.  On another note I personally think Kandi was WRONG to take the Master Suite, knowing NeNe had put the trip together and that's the room she wanted, Kandi acts ike a child as well.

I'm sick of Porshe crying.  On th ebus when it was made clear to her that her marriage was not a woman and a man it was a child and her daddy she bagn boo-hooing.  Listen chile handle the truth.  Don't hate them for spelling out what you should now know to be self evident.  On top of all of that Kordell obviously had no respect for you.  Look at how he threw you out.  OMG I would say his feelings bordered on despising you.  I want to hear his side of things.

Porsha, girl I have laughed so hard since last nights episode. That statement about the train and how they're not electric trains like we have now has kept me in stitches. I'm sorry to laugh at you but that's probably the funniest, most memorable few lines of a housewives show ever.

This was my favorite episode of RHOA in a long time!  Mr. Hermann failed to mention Kandi grabbing the Master Suite. NoNo, NeNe, you let that slide?  Although it was poor ettiquette, it was also entertaining. 

Cynthia's lessons in throwing shade, and receiving shade gracefully were fabulous, and Mynique was a quick study. (BTW-does "Y" ever really sound like an "O"?  What language would that be?) 

Sweet, sweet  Porsha...did you fall asleep in History class,from 3rd grade through college?  Please go back and listen, participate, read...the stories of American History and Black American History are facinating.

As for Mynique, and her husband dating other housewives, since NeNe said she and Phaedra and Kandi  grew up in Athens then 20 and 30 years ago, it was a very small town where everyone would know everyone. But it certainly is strange that Mynique husbands denies any dating of these women.  Why would you do that when you know your wife is going to be hanging out and on this show and deny this silly fact. And I call it silly because we all dated others before marrying. Some relationships more intimate than others.  

 

Kenya made the dumbest remark of all cause she needs to know at her age there are no virgin men running around for her to date.

 @Nastybaby

 How is she the instigator?  Have you watched how Nene gets people to start sh**.  Regardless of what you think of her lyrics she is smart enough to have gotten paid... millions... and is still getting paid.  What is her ignorant side?  She doesn't take the crap that the women dish out.

 @lady-Belle You're absolutely right! But when you have two assistant's, two nannies, and a husband like she does, there's no reasonable excuse for being THAT late.

Not by Cynthia. She can not managed her own life.  But hey the issue here is that Mynquine dated Peter in the past.  When she realized what kind of user he was she dropped him.  Just like Nia Long. I can not wait until that all comes out.

 @elizabeth.fisher.589 Did you not see the clip of they were 3 hours late at Kandi's get together?   This lateness is like beating a dead horse. Everytime there is a get together they are late. Just NeNe gets mad if its her shindig and they are late but Nene is always 3 hours late to theirs. Why should NeNe get the Master Suite when Bravo is paying for this.  She was the first to walk in and the first to claim it. So be that.

 And for Kandi to be so Savvy with her money, she sure needs to take lessons

on how to dress more Savvy, for gods sake that girl always look like she's wearing

her daughters clothes, spend some of that money on a stylist instead of Chick-fil-A

outings.

 @rita.karson No, you don't wish that she was acting dumb because that would be even worse.  To feign that level of stupidity at the expense of hers--my--black ancestors, to reduce what they endured to a joke would be even more offensive that being truly ignorant.

 @msmith76 I don't like Porsha, so I'm not defending HER, but I am defending the experience people feel when they go through a divorce.  When my sister went through her divorce, she got severely depressed and cried at the drop of a hat.  My cousin experienced the same thing.  No matter how badly the marriages went, they suffered a loss and had to go through their stages of grief.

Until you walk a mile in someone else shoes... What works for the other ladies in their relationships/marriages may not work for Porsha.  It's easy for people to sit back and judge another person cirmcumstances. Also, at least Porsha asked the question whether it was dumb or not.. she asked.  The only dumb question is a question not asked.   IJS

 @Judybrown I think very few people found Porsha's lack of knowledge of black history entertaining or funny - inclduding myself I believe most of us were either shocked she hadn't learned about the Underground Railroad's significance to slavery or were embarassed for her - and the episode also provided some insight into what may have led Kordell to file for divorce. Anyway it was sad to see Porsha embarass herself like that in front of viewers because it was a portrayal of her that won't go away any time soon -if ever - and will require extraordinary measures on her part to change other's opinion of her intelligence and maturity level.

I made a comment about Nia Long being smart enough to dump Peter a few weeks ago, but I guess my comment was a bit harsh because it was never approved/posted.

Kenya and Porsha should go. Im tired and Phaedra and Kandi's funky tude.  I think they are both bulies and have personal issues which transcends th eshow.  Perhaps they should be booted as well.  After all they both have other shows with Bravo.

 @whenbored    "so wha"?  Well, maybe you can excuse lateness, but most people who follow etiquette find it to be completely unacceptable.   Being lates basically says to a person that you have no regard for their time.

 

As far as the Master Suite is concerned: unless Kandi really IS ignorant, she had to have known that was the master bedroom, just by the layout and by the location in the house.  Also, the opulent bathroom was a dead giveaway.  Once again, another demonstration of her passive-aggressiveness.
