It’s a good thing Cynthia Bailey has made a living off of her looks — because what comes out of her mouth is rarely interesting! Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was no different, with the businesswoman visiting the newly-furnished home of Claudia Jordan with Kenya Moore. In fact, the most compelling thing she found to talk about was (yet again) NeNe Leakes…who didn’t even appear in this week’s episode.
We did, however, get to see Apollo Nida and Peter Thomas show off their bromance when Peter picks up a “stressed-out” Apollo to gossip. During the outing, Apollo casually tells Peter that his wife, Phaedra Parks, is having an affair and claims she and her lover are counting down the days until he goes to prison. Upon returning home, Peter wastes no time sharing Atlanta’s latest “news” with a stunned Cynthia, who proceeds to call her friend “cold-blooded.”
Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss prepares for a Los Angeles getaway with husband Todd Tucker, who get her a part in the movie Second Chance Christmas. The newlywed bristles at her husband’s decision to stay in Los Angeles for nearly a week without her, not understanding his “needing a day” when she routinely rushes home to be with family. Later on, Kandi confesses to her assistant that she and Todd are only intimate once a week, and it’s usually at her urging. She concludes that counseling is the only thing that may save her floundering marriage.
And while Phaedra had the locks on her home changed, believing Apollo had turned himself in to begin his stint in prison, she gets an unsettling surprise when he angrily storms through their home like a madman. Apollo accuses his wife of always leaving him and not being there for him, and rushes through the house with a drill in his hand. Still, Phaedra refuses to call the police since Apollo is the father of her children, and at the urging of his friend, Apollo leaves. He eventually returns to try and get a kiss from his unwilling wife who tells him, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”
Up next week? Cynthia spreads some gossip and Phaedra loses it when Kenya confronts her about that alleged affair!
