Did you see last week’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you.

On last week’s show after Kenya’s deal producing Phaedra’s Donkey Booty video turned sour, she decided to produce her own fitness video –- “The Stallion Workout” –- to rival Phaedra’s donkey. The feud intensified as Phaedra went on the attack, exposing hurtful things about Kenya. NeNe returned to Atlanta to spend some time with her glam baby, and Cynthia casted a charity runway event where a showdown between Phaedra and Kenya took center stage.

On tonight’s show Kenya and Phaedra work on their dueling workout videos, but Kenya gets fired up when she hears Phaedra has been stirring up things about her. Cynthia continues to build her agency, adding a kid pageant to her roster while NeNe is learning that it is harder to stay at the top then it is to get there. Porsha gets caught in the crossfire when Kenya goes on a rampage with Phaedra as enemy number one.

It looks like the workout video battle is really going to get ugly. If you’ve been watching then you already know that Phaedra and Apollo decided to put out a fitness video called Donkey Booty and Kenya was going to produce the thing and take a cut. Supposedly when the deal went south Kenya had a company ready to finance so she decided that she’d do a video herself. Phaedra is furious and Kenya sees absolutely nothing unprofessional about her behavior. Phaedra and Apollo are posing for marketing photos while Kenya trains extra hard to have a better butt.

Cynthia thinks it’s a good idea to expand the Bailey Agency into the pageant realm. She realizes only one in ten girls that walk through her door have a shot at modeling so pageants would be a good avenue.

Kenya invites Porsha to lunch and it ends up just as ugly as you’d expect. Kenya tries to say that she thinks her fight with Phaedra is what is causing problems between them and Porsha craps on that notion immediately. She hates Kenya and pretty much tells her so. Nene just bought a house in LA and is trying to figure out who she can get to decorate. It’s proving to be a bigger task than she first expected.

Cynthia decides to go one step further and host her own pageant, with Porsha’s help. She’s decided to call it the Cynthia Bailey Presents: Miss Renaissance. The ladies meet up as a group at a restaurant that features belly dancers and decide to catch up as a group, minus Kenya. Phaedra starts talking about Kenya trying to one up her and Cynthia of all people thinks it’s not right. She’s the only one who has made peace with her I guess. Kandi can’t figure out why on earth Porsha even agreed to a lunch with Kenya.

Speaking of Kenya, the day after dinner Cynthia meets Kenya on the golf course. They vilify Miss Phaedra and her cheapness then contemplate whether or not Kenya’s drinking indicates a problem- because Phaedra thinks she’s a drunk. It’s funny because Phaedra has had little airtime in this episode but she’s the center of attention.

Hey guess what? Now Kenya is meeting with her dude with red lipstick friends and they are discussing Phaedra! This dude in heels believes that Phaedra looks like a dude in heels. Speaking of heels, Nene is launching a shoe for Shoe Dazzle. She says she’s exhausted from traveling between LA and Atlanta and I have to say, she looks it. Her shoe’s proceeds will go to benefit a domestic violence charity. Kenya is cruisin’ to the event with her guy pal and Kenya is intending to start a fight.  When she gets out of the car she is wearing thong bathing suit instead of a dress and starts imitating Phaedra’s manner of speaking. Everyone is appalled because it’s a charity event and completely inappropriate.

Phaedra and Kenya go at it completely and I’m still amazed how Kenya can be so ugly with such a huge smile on her face. She ends tonight’s show by telling Phaedra she’s too fat to do a workout video. It’s all downhill from here so tune in next week.
