The BAM! Squad

Ep 12: Everyone learned not to come for Kandi's mom, food, or man this week.

on Jan 210

Who's ready to pour some wine and spill some tea? You are? Great! Let's jump right in.

Peter and Cynthia may have their ups and downs, but here they are celebrating their third wedding anniversary. Mazel! It seems as if they've at least put aside the whole Malorie-fueled debacle behind them for the night and enjoy an intimate dinner for...four? They seemingly decided to celebrate with another couple, Christopher and Natalie, who (like approximately 20% of the people featured on the show) had some potentially shady things to say about Todd. More on this to come.

In any event, Peter revealed that he had actually planned an intimate dinner for Cynthia (just the two of them) over at their new studio, complete with a serenading from Christopher, who also happens to be a singer. Seriously if there's one thing that Peter is really good at, it's big, romantic surprises.

Over at Porsha's new pad, NeNe stopped by in an attempt to work on their relationship post-trunk show tear fest. NeNe brought over some wine, but her true housewarming gift to Porsha was clearly their little gossip session about Kenya's "African Prince" and her new car. Nothing says "welcome to your new home" quite like getting the tea on your frenemy.

Kandi, you need to get some balls and stand up to your mother.  She is nothing but a mouthy bully.  As long as you let her get away with this behavior she will continue to do this kind of ghetto behavior.  You are much classier than she is and you need to set her straight if you expect to ever be happy.

I hope they get the fight part over tonight.  I'd like to see how things settle next week.  I'm not with Todd, I don't think he took up for Kandi like he should have.

Did  Phaedra introduce Todd to Khandi?  Apollo is Phaedra's husband right?  Be carfeul Khnadi, That crew likes money and they know that you have plenty. 


May God be with you. Pray for the truth to come out. Pray real hard girl and don't make a move until he answers you.

 Khandi to say that you don't care about the girl that Todd hurt is foolish. I would  talk to her to find out how bad my fiance really was or ask him to apologize to her. What a person can do to one they can do to another. That girl that he hurt is someone's child, just like you are. It does not make you a better woman, because you have him. You might be next.

Kandi - Way to turn he negative comments from Natalie into a laughable situation, good job Kandi! Way to show the haters, it was too funny....You tell them Kandi

SHE.
SHE.

Kandi bothers no one so I can't wait to see who she drags lol. She look so healthy now with her new weight. Todd and Kandi are so funny together. He ads a little humor to them and she's most happy when around him. Her daughter has really grown and looks soooo much like her. Nice little family. I'm waiting on the new kids, I hope she has twins or at least 2 more.

Kandi,  the way you made your statement at the winery after the other ladies talked about Todd was clever.  What an impressive way to shut them all down.

NENE is Shady , Shady, Shady, what kind of party was that .....seems to me she set up this whole nonsense and it backfired so badly she will be cringing for a looooong time to come...'

Kenya did not start anything !

she was probably late deliberately because her instinct would have told her this was a classic set up.

I saw the look Peter gave Kandi, when she ratted him out.  She was smooth with it.  Kandi is not worried, she knows Momma Joyce and the Dangerous crew will back her up. LOL

Why is Kenya allways stirring up drama?Everytime someone new joins the group for a fun outing,Kenya allways has to ruin it for everyone.noone likes to here someone trashing there man especially in a group of women.These new ladies there seem to be so excited to be invited and enjoying ther selves,smiling and being pleasant,just wanting to enjoy a outing with other ladies company.Then Kenya has to say something nasty just to ruin it for everyon.I dont believe Kenya really has a African lover whos so great and so in love with her.Why does she have to get artificaly inseniated cant spell the word,but Im talking about sperm from a stranger.Wouldnt the child be better off to at least know his father and grow up with a father in his life?If her African lover is all she makes him out to be ,and she has mentioned,they maybe getting serious in there relationship that a proposal for marriage may be in the near future.If he is such a good and loving man why wouldnt he allso make a good father for her child.She said because they live so far apart,Id rather have a father in Africa who loves me than no father at all or just be a product of astranger donating sperm just so my mother could have me.really makes no sense to me.

Natalie and Christopher W. are making to much of an effort to dispel Kenya's rumor about their so-called marriage.  It makes me believe that the rumors are true.  It has also been reported, by Stacey Dash, that he was a deadbeat dad.  He appears to be no "winner."

what is Kenya's problem with Natalie ......why would she tell Natalie her husband said they were common law married and say it in front of everyone......then Kenya throws Cynthia under the bus and tells Natalie that she told Cynthia and Peter that Todd  likes high powered women in so many words he is a opportunist........Kandi fred back at Cynthia about Peters behavior and then puts the whole Todd to bed........Kenya started this whole mess but why...I think it was scripted  Kenya attacks  when attacked and Natalie and Chris only said positive things about Kenya.......we know Kenya has her crazies but this didn't make sense.......it was meant to create drama  to be continued and keep the viewers watching

These ladies are not friends with each other they all must be jealous of each other. Friends do not repeat information

That they know will cause confusion. Cynthia  needs to learn not to repeat everything she hears. She caused all the confusion in tonight's episode 1-25-2014 repeating information from her friend. Cynthia you can not blame Kenya you have to take responsible for your actions, wake up are you in high school or your daughter this is behavior you would expect from high school girls.

All the men on this show are opportunists.  The women are the working, successful ones in the relationships. the show should really be called the real house husbands of Atlanta and feature the men as the stars while the women go out and make the money. Peter lives off of Cynthia and needs her to support his lifestyle. How many failed business ventures has he had. Apollo would be in a rented room or studio apartment if it weren't for Phaedra. Greg seem to no longer work. Is he retired?  Todd will fit perfectly into this group.  Birds of a feather flock together.

Really, not one woman on the show has married well or dating well. 

Let's be real...there is not one man on the show with a lucrative career.

I don't like Mamma Joyce even if Todd is an opportunist. She's too involved in Kandi's personal life and has no room to talk about who uses Kandi since it's very obvious she's living off her and is only trying to control her inner circle so she can keep begging for hand outs. Women of the 21st century tell who's with them for what reason and make a choice to stay or leave. Kandi don't need her momma's help, it's really the other way around. Mamma joyce wants to run everyone away so she can keep her paws in Kandi's pocket!

Cynthia is really shocking me right now with this gossip, she threw shade on Kandi and Todd with Shyt starting Kenya. It came out at the table.. She goes back and tell peter half the truth.. Tell the whole truth Cynthia, Kandi took a digg at you because YOU, CYNTHIA took a Digg at Kandi and Todd First, . Kandi shut it down!!! lmbo

@tooshort  but you have to remember it was said that this was not a long serious relationship and it was over 20 years ago. most people were a little crazy in younger days. i think ALL the trash talking Cynthia did was REAllY shady!!!

cyndyt

@tooshort I believe that was Todd's GF in high school. I am sure he has changed since then, and if any of Todd's ex's wanted to talk to Kandi, I am sure they would have already reached out.

@sinsin Cynthia is just as shady as NeNe. Cynthia tries to act like she is above everyone else, but in reality, she will put a knife in anyone's back. Can not stand either of them. 

I love the way NeNe talked about Kandi's show and how she was above being in it. I hope Bravo shows her reaction when she hears about the real stars that will be in it.  NeNe is such a looser.

@sharley14 If she did get pregnant I bet she would tell the other women it is his child. She is a liar and a fool. Can't stand the woman, trouble and hate is all she is about.

@sharley14 I agree with you 200 percent.  I think Kenya is in a world of her own.  And she had no right getting in Natalie's face while she was setting down.  What she should have done was get in Nene's face.  How about that cup of tea SIP on THAT Kenya.

@ceeacee 

Agreed.  While I'm not one to knock folks for trying to dust themselves off and get back to life, I do see an age-old problem Chris is experiencing as a man, that is seeing his dirty laundry hung on the flagpole flapping in the breeze for everybody else to see.  He clearly was mad about the fact that Kenya hoisted his drawers up the pole.  What made the rumor appear quite true were two things that came from C.W. (1) when he made the old classic "I don't know what medication you're on..." statement, (2) when he followed with an out-and-out grabbing of Kenya's arm, definitely the worst of the two, although both CAUGHT ON TAPE could actually result in legal problems for him.  

It is apparent he still has some work to do in getting himself together in dealing with women.  I believe Kenya was being quite nice in what she told C.W.'s wife(?) Natalie because I'm quite sure that Stacey Dash and some others could elaborate on a much deeper level than what Kenya did.


As far as WHO STARTED IT, after NeNe mentioned the Chris/Natalie/Kenya situation and opened the floor for discussion, Natalie did not hesitate to lunge for the wheel of the bandwagon so she could use the opportunity to throw Kenya under the wagon and then run over her with it when she accused her of lying about what she said before Kenya could even get a word in.  The desperation was was too obvious.  Had Natalie got all stupid with me like that it's hard to say if I'd take it SITTING DOWN either.  And it wouldn't be me getting in her face over Christopher but rather just about her thinking she could treat me like I've got some kind of tail on my a&&.

@Curiously ..... and someone FINALLY said it!  NEVER, and I do mean EVER:

(1) Give a "man" money

(2) Dress a "man"

(3) Fight over a "man"

(4) Let a "man" borrow your car when he doesn't have one

(5) Love a "man" more than you love yourself

@socialbutterfly516I have a hard time with people laying this at Cynthia's door. Yes she does tend to repeat gossip but as I recall Natalie made her disclosure about Todd  on camera while the couples were socializing. Hello. The comment might not have stirred the pot immediately but it would have once it was aired. Why should Natalie get a pass for saying something publicly that should not have been said with the camera rolling. What she confides in Cynthia off camera is one thing but she was looking to start something when she said it. Cynthia repeating it just hastened the repercussions.  

At the end of the day, just about everyone on this show is after the same thing - a reason to be relevant, to stay on the show and get paid.

@lalastar I disagree with Apollo living in a rented room or studio apartment because he doesn't have a job.  Oooops, wait a minute.  He did have a "job" which led to his recent arrest.  None of these dudes on the show are worth the time of day, and their wives know it.  Walter and Kordell were the only men on the show who had established, successful CAREERS.

@SunShyne_in_Florida While I agree with most of what you have said.  I think Gregg Leakes has a net worth of about 3.5 million.  So, he has worked, or is working.

@HRDMNY  

Just whose pockets did Kandi depend on from birth on up through the time she became financially independent?  And who was there for her when Riley's daddy wasn't?  Concern for Kandi's overall welfare is STILL rightfully a concern for Mama Joyce. Kandi's age does not change the fact that Mama is STILL Mama.

Yes, she was out of line in her behavior at the bridal gown store.  But I would not have invited any of them to join me for the fitting.  Yes, she was out of line in going to Phaedra's office to talk to her about Kandi and Todd's matters, aside from Phaedra being the "matchmaker."  But Phaedra should have shown the true friend (to Kandi) in her and respectfully stopped Mama Joyce from going on about them and told her that she will speak with Kandi about it.


The Good Book does NOT read "Honor thy mother...  until you get to where you can pay your own bills and marry who you want to."


CHECK YOURSELVES, SISTERS, on this issue involving our Mama Joyces.

@ms.mavin7 Thank you so much for your smart insight about Kandi's mother.  Half of the females who made comments wouldn't be in their downtrodden circumstances if they had a mother like Miss Joyce who cared about them enough and talked some sense into them before they made their BUTT CRAZY mistakes.  The same females who were happy when Peter and Cynthia got married and referred to their wedding as "black love" are the same females on the bandwagon telling Kandi not to "let a good man get away".  And we now see how things are going between Cynthia and Peter.  The females egging Kandi on to marry Todd are the same females who'll jump at any chance to settle for a piece of a man.  I see right through Todd.  Miss Joyce has every right to be over the top to protect her daughter and granddaughter.  Black women always call themselves being in love, but don't realize until after they're made a fool out of that they were bamboozled the entire time.  Khandi has been warned by her mother and Natalie told her how Todd used her girlfriend and cheated on her.  Kandi is no better than the next woman.  Kandi said she's not worried about how Todd cheated and used Natalie's girlfriend.  She should be concerned about Todd's history because a predicator of a person's future behavior can be how they acted in the past.
