Recap: So Many Tears!

Ep 21: Everyone is crying in the ATL this week.

It's hard to believe, but we've arrived at the penultimate episode of this season. And there were a LOT of tears. Seriously, almost everyone cried this week, so let's go tear by tear.

First off, Kandi and her mom finally had their much-discussed therapy session. They each had a private mini session with the counselor in which Kandi yet again explained her frustrations and why she can't be tough out of respect.

More surprisingly, Momma Joyce finally got weepy over the situation. Joyce started by bringing up her concerns that Kandi's gained weight since dating Todd and that Todd hasn't been working. But when the therapist pushed her on the fact that she hasn't given Todd a chance and gotten to know him, she seemed to concede the point and got upset. Progress!

Over at Kenya's house, things were pretty bleak -- her cute little dog, Velvet, passed away! Evidently he was mauled by a larger dog, which is just terrible. Understandably she was very broken up about it, and Aunt Lori came to the rescue to try and lift Kenya's spirits.

Later she met with Cynthia and Kandi to let them know the bad news, and Cynthia nearly fell out of her chair:


I couldn't blame her thought, because no one saw that coming.

Finally Todd managed to bring me to tears during his one-on-one talk with Joyce at the end. I mean how could she not immediately know he's a good guy when he said, "I would love for you to love me one day." I mean honestly, this guy is trying so hard here! Throw him a bone!

So we don't end on a downer, let's address the the non-sad moments from this episode:

-Kandi not letting Porsha get away with missing rehearsals.


-NeNe announced the exciting news about her fashion line and was all:


-And Phaedra and Apollo had a 'Ghost' moment (although their cup/pot didn't fare so well).


-Cynthia and Peter dealt with a shocking setback in their businesses when a landlord issue came up. Hey, at least they're talking about these issues now, right?

Next week is the big finale and the premiere of Kandi's musical. Will Porsha deliver (or just fall asleep)? And why is NeNe going to the hospital?

Who Wore It Best: Olivia Pope or the Atlanta 'Wives?

The Atlanta ladies took some style cues from Scandal's notorious wearer of white, Olivia Pope, for the Season 7 reunion.

Sure, Olivia Pope has seen her fair share of scandal, but this may be the biggest one yet -- the Atlanta Housewives sported her signature all-white style at the Season 7 reunion!

So the real question now is not whether Olivia and Fitz will ever be together, but who wore it best?

1Olivia Pope or NeNe Leakes?

NeNe's making this power suit look so fierce and so successful. 

2Olivia Pope or Kenya Moore?

People get exhausted trying to figure out whether Kenya out twirled Olivia in this look, but we'll just let them.

3Olivia Pope or Porsha Williams?

Porsha may have been confused about the Underground Railroad, but she certainly knows how to rock the train of this white number.

4Olivia Pope or Cynthia Bailey?

Life's full of choices, but do you choose Cynthia?
