Tonight’s episode begins now – Refresh Page for Updates

Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta kicks off with Kenya visiting Claudia at her new house and trying to help her put together her new furniture.  After pounding some drinks and gossiping they decide to go find a single man in her building to put the furniture together for them.

Kandi and Todd go to their old house, and are shocked when they walk in and see that it is half-renovated and is missing walls and a bath-tub.  Kandi’s mom was moving in to the house and had her boyfriend doing renovations – but then she decided she wanted a new house that was in her name and left Kandi’s house totally destroyed.  Todd tells Kandi that enough is enough – and how much crap are they going to take from her mother.

Cynthia’s mom and sister come over, and she fills them in on her feud with Nene Leakes.  She is tired of Nene tweeting things about her and talking crap about her in interviews, and to top it off she called Cynthia’s husband Peter a “damn bitch.”  Cynthia rants that she doesn’t want to even try to make amends with Nene and she is done with her.

Kandi pays Phaedra a visit and they catch up, Kandi explains that there is a lot of tension in their house between her teen daughter and Todd’s.  Phaedra rants about Apollo and how he is living in denial and partying like he isn’t about to go to prison for 8 years.  Kandi fills Phaedra in on her chat with Kenya about Apollo lying about her – and explains that she got emotional and started crying.  Phaedra doesn’t want to hear it though, she says that if Kenya hadn’t acted so trashy then everyone wouldn’t have believed Apollo’s lies.  Kandi wants all the girls to mend fences and thinks that they should have a dinner with all of the girls.

Nene and Gregg take 15 year old Brentt on a driving lesson in a parking lot, and they set up orange cones.  Gregg gets decked out in a helmet and chest protector before he gets in the car with Brentt.  Nene watches from across the parking lot and yells as he runs over half of the orange cones that they set up.  After the driving class Nene reveals to Gregg that Kandi wants her to go to dinner with the girls and apologize to Kenya.

Claudia and Kenya head to the gym together because Claudia wants a big booty like Kenya’s.  She explains that because she is bi-racial and half Italian, she feels like black girls are always judging her because she has a white girl butt.  Claudia fills Kenya in on the struggle of growing up bi-racial, and all of the light-skinned vs. dark-skinned drama she went through in school.

Kandi heads to lunch with her aunts, they demand to know when she and Todd are going to have a baby.  They gush about how beautiful Mama Joyce’s new house is that Kandi bought her, and Kandi fills them in on her mom’s boyfriend tearing up their old house.  The talk turns to Todd’s mom Sharon and her feud with Joyce, Kandi’s Aunts just want them all to “forgive and forget.”

It’s time for the girl’s big dinner, Kandi and Pheadra arrive first – and Phaedra decides to say a prayer that the devil doesn’t wind up taking over their dinner.  Cynthia arrives next and greets them before she takes a seat.  Kenya is the next to arrive, she hugs and kisses Cynthia and barely says “hi” to Phaedra.  The dinner gets even more awkward as Nene and Porscha arrive.

After everyone is seated, Kandi explains to them all that she wants all the girls to smooth things over so that they can move forward without anyone being uncomfortable.  Kenya can’t wait to announce that Apollo came clean and told everyone that he lied about her coming on to him and she wants everyone to have the benefit of the doubt when it comes to stories about her.  Nene interrupts and says that she never called Kenya a “whore” because she doesn’t care about what she is.  Phaedra speaks up and says that she did call Kenya a “whore” and she’s not taking it back.  But, she agrees to give her a “clean slate” – but Phaedra still won’t apologize.

Once the Phaedra and Kenya beef is squashed, Kandi turns her attention to Nene and Cynthia.  Nene explains that she “doesn’t know where their friendship went wrong” and she never knew they had a falling out.  Cynthia explains that their issue has absolutely nothing to do with all of the other girls at the table – and Nene demands to know why they are discussing it in front of all of the other girls.  Nene snaps that she always had Cynthia’s back and she “loved her like a fu—ing sister” and tells her to “stop acting like an innocent ass sister.”  The RHOA women watch Nene and Cynthia hurl insults at each other in shock.

THE END!
