Last time we saw the ladies of Atlanta on the couch with Bravo's Andy Cohen, Phaedra Parks revealed she hasn't taken her boys to see their father, Apollo Nida, in prison. And NeNe Leakes was ganged up on by the other women in the room.
Tonight, on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 24, Dr. Jeff returns and Phaedra and Kandi get down to the business of figuring out of there's a friendship worth saving left between them.
Plus, the men sit around the couches to have their say. Well, except Apollo. They're not Skyping him in from jail.
During The Real Housewives of Season 6 reunion special, NeNe challenged Kenya to donate $20,000 to Detroit Public Schools. They were both going to write a check.
Kenya sent hers. NeNe says she'll send one "when she gets ready." Minus 50.
Remember how NeNe just bought a multi-million dollar house? Ugh. Minus 20 more.
It's Cynthia's turn in the hot seat. The fans were very split on how she changed this season. Some loved how outspoken she was and others thought she was just being bitchy. NeNe chimed in that Cynthia's never really been any different than how she appeared this year, but when they were friends, NeNe got all the attention, positive and negative, which allowed Cynthia to fly under the radar.
Andy wants to know why Phaedra's been so vicious toward Cynthia. LOLOLOL, Andy. Cynthia maintains she wasn't being personal or vicious toward Phaedra by bringing up all the stuff Apollo said. Oh, okay, Cynthia. Okay.
Cynthia just keeps telling Phaedra to win a case while Phaedra keeps telling Cynthia allllll sorts of things.
Kandi and Phaedra get to have it out now. It seems the general viewing public thinks Kandi was being ridiculous by comparing her tour being canceled to Phaedra's husband going to prison. Kandi says she had way more going on at the time than just the tour. She was "thrown" by the playback of their interactions over the season.
Phaedra says she reached out and texted Kandi and Kandi didn't text back. Their friendship was strained. Kandi felt like Phaedra wasn't checking in on her and then ends up crying. Kandi never cries or gets into the drama. This is bad.
Phaedra maintains all that she ever really wanted from Kandi was to feel like Kandi was present.
The friend swaps were epic this season. NeNe and Phaedra and Porsha are besties. Cynthia and Kenya are besties. Kandi's flying solo. Kandi chooses Team Kandi. Plus 15.
Now the guys are on the couch. Peter, Todd, and Gregg have joined their women. Peter gets the first question: why does he insert himself into the women's drama? "I don't give a f***" is his answer. That's...not an answer. Minus 5.
Kenya is the only one who owns up to dating an African man. Porsha says she definitely didn't date an African prince. Phaedra vehemently denies she cheated on Apollo and says she still loves her husband.
Cynthia maintains she didn't care one way or the other if Phaedra was cheating on Apollo. But she sure cared enough to bring it up. Minus 8.
Phaedra says the reason she nearly came across the table at Kenya when Kenya accused her of cheating on her marriage was that she was at her breaking point.
Kandi knew about the texts and brought the information to Phaedra after she learned about them but says that if Phaedra had wanted to cheat on Apollo, he would've deserved it after everything he put her through.
Kenya accuses Phaedra of having a boob job in the middle of Apollo getting ready to go to prison. Who cares? She says she didn't, but who cares?
Phaedra throws back that Kenya flirted relentlessly with Apollo and Kenya tries to say NeNe flirted with Peter to dodge the heat. When Kenya and NeNe start shouting at each other, Gregg asks Peter to weigh in and Peter says he can't project that loud. Plus 10.
Peter doesn't get a chance to answer. At least not tonight. That's coming up on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 25.
