Kenya can't seem to keep herself out of trouble this week. Even when she transforms herself into Phaedra, it doesn't help! Drama finds its way to this girl like a Housewife to a glass of iced wine. Let's review the evidence, shall we?
No. 3 - Reh-Ash-ing
As soon as you see Kenya and Porsha alone, you can count on trouble. These two cannot spend more than two minutes in conversation without it turning ugly real fast.
It wasn't exactly clear what Kenya's purpose was. Did she want to defend herself regarding what Phaedra was saying? Was she trying to warn Porsha against befriending Phaedra? Some combination of both? Whatever the reason, it devolved in a matter of seconds into Kenya calling Porsha a little girl and Porsha telling Kenya she has ashy feet. Way harsh, ladies.
I think I felt the most for the two gentlemen at the bar, presumably there to enjoy their lunch and what looked like a "work is a real bitch today and I deserve this" cocktail. They looked genuinely perturbed by all the shouting.
Phaedra and Kenya's semi-polite fighting (at least relatively) from the past two episodes was a little awkward, yet fairly civil. That all went out the window at NeNe's ShoeDazzle event however. After Kenya's grand entrance (more on that later), there was finally a face-to-face airing of grievances between her and Phaedra at NeNe's behest. Maybe NeNe needed a little drama to wake her up, because she must have known that wasn't going to be cleared up quickly and quietly.
In a rare turn of events, we actually saw Phaedra fired up -- she was holding her own against Kenya and making it known that she does think she's a bipolar bootlegger. All I can say is Kenya better watch out, because I think Phaedra may be close to unleashing ReDICKulous on her, and we've seen how dangerous his weapon can be.
I'm not sure how Kenya came to the conclusion that the best way to prove Phaedra is absurd was to come to an event dressed up as her and do an over-the-top impersonation, but I'm forever grateful for whatever means led to its conception. It was truly a beautiful disaster.
I got the big hat and the whole ensemble, but the (what I'm presuming were) butt pads left me a bit bewildered. Was she trying to say Phaedra uses butt pads/that she needs butt pads? Either way it kind of looked like Kenya was wearing paper plates on her behind.
Perhaps this is how all Housewives should let it be known that they have an issue with someone -- just dress up as the person who's bothering you so they get the message. That way you don't have to tell them, they'll just know.
Most importantly, where do you go once you've impersonated someone in public? Can you still have any sort of friendship? Does Phaedra need to show up to something in the Gone With the Wind Fabulous nightgown? I'm pretty excited to find out.
