The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: No Bones About It

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta continued their African adventure Sunday night, but can the crew hold on to their newfound peace? Don't bet on it.

We recap it all as the insults fly with our THG +/- review!

Back from the orphanage, everyone's talking about how much they have and how it felt to witness people so appreciative for towels and soap. For the first time the women seem to find something worthwhile to bond over. Plus 15

Well, all but Marlo. She's bitching about the shrimp in her salad. Minus 10. Apparently the trip to the orphanage affected some of the ladies more than others.

Has anyone else noticed that Cynthia's hair is gorgeous this entire trip? Plus 8. I think it's really stunning.

Phaedra invites the ladies to a museum to experience the local Xhosa culture. She says when you know better you do better. We'll agree with the sentiment. Plus 7.

Unfortunately, the sentiment and the reality are two different things. The Xhosa culture couldn't be more sexist. All a man has to do is find a lady he likes on the street, tell a family member to fetch her for his wife.

The woman involved has no choice in the matter. Minus 10. That's just scary.

Of course not everyone need worry. For instance, Sheree is too old. Yes, according to the herbalist/medicine man/witch doctor or whatever the hell he is, his reading of the "bones" tells him Sheree will never marry again because she is too old.

Plus 12 because we can't stop laughing.

OK, so his ancestor's bones are actually a strange combination of sea shells and dice that you blow on like you're about to shoot craps and then he can read your fate.

So how accurate are these bones? Well, they say that Kandi's living with the guy she'll marry. A bit of a problem since she's single and the last man she lived with died. The bones man simply says that his spirit is following her and is always there.

Too bad Kandi can't marry a spirit then. Minus 10.

Marlo's fortune tells her she's never found a man who really loves her. No kidding. And NeNe's says she isn't happy and that her husband is a good man and he's right but she shouldn't stay if she's not happy. 

NeNe argues she's not happily married but she is happy. The bones disagree. Plus 8 because it's fun to watch NeNe argue with a stack of sea shells.

Oh, and the bones tell us that Cynthia is happily married. Ha! Minus 9. Maybe for public appearances, if that but not for real.

Back at the reserve Marlo decides to give the ladies a treat and show off her shoes and bags. She's packed 29 pairs of heels for an African safari. Minus 8. What would she have packed if she went to Paris for 10 days?

The night gets wild as the alcohol flows and Marlo and Kandi swap favorite sexual positions, demonstrations included. How do we even issue points for that? But at least every one is laughing instead of screaming at one another. If only it would last.

The next day Marlo's too sick to head out on safari, not that it matters. The women are so loud and into their gossiping that they miss most of the wildlife they pass by. Minus 7.

It seems like everyone is looking to cause trouble. First Kandi tells NeNe they've all been trashing Marlo. Why would she do that? Minus 10.

And what's with all of the bitching about Kim? The girl's not even here and personally we think having a two month old infant at home is a pretty good reason to skip a trip to another continent.

First Kandi and Cynthia gossip that they're not surprised Kim didn't come and they can't picture her at an orphanage with a bunch of African kids. Minus 10, especially for Kandi who always comes off like Kim's friend.

Then Sheree calls Kim and throws the girls under the bus by telling her that they said they can't picture her in Africa holding some black babies. Minus 15. This just keeps getting worse.

And it just won't stop. Kim's name pops up again during dinner as NeNe calls her the boss of the smalls. Now everybody's bitching and it looks like this fight is going to continue into next week if not beyond.

We'll see if anyone is still talking to one another by the time they get home.



I will simply say:
Sheree is a snake in the grass" buttering up with Kim against the ladies she went away with. Watch the tape, Kandi did not mention "holding black babies"....


The entire season sofar the smalls have said, even when they where guest on wendy Williams that nene controled cynthia,that was also the same topics of convo, while in Africa,these women spent most of there trip laughing at r talking about marlo and cyn.fighting over nene,so y if it so appaulling to kandi when nene turns it back around, it boggles my brain how kandi Is still friends with kim after the tardyparty situation and the tour bus,pre nene, the fact that all these women consider kim a friend Is odd, especially since she gas snagged her a golden goose and u can really c that she doesn't want to b botherdwith these sistas


The entire season,even on wend wills,d smls commentd o cynthia under benefit control,the same thing on the African trip, so why get mad about benefit stay kim Is there boss,kim has fought with sheree, talkd about apollo and the alien baby phaedra was carryn, used kandi and these women still call her friend, wow now that Is a BOSS,kandi-has really changed and Is very messy,sheree- really Is unattractive and broke,cynthia-just b a housewife,phaedra-have u forgotten how sheree handled u during her court process, nene-is blowing up,love u on glee, kim-has never liked these women she tolerated them because of the show,marlo-i would rather have her as a friend than enemy,(sheree,kandi,cynthia, phaedra area your weakest links but without them who would The other ladies fight with,lastly no one wants to c a show with just kim and kroy, r kandi,BORNING bravo don't waste your $


OMG! people need to pay attention to the show! CYNTHIA made the comment about KIM... BUT THEY ALL WERE LAUGHING ABOUT IT! but Kandi just said "yeah I couldn;t visualize kim at the orphanage" and "I don;t think she (Kim) wanted to come anyway because of the whole mess with NeNE!" Sheree was totally wrong for "throwing Kandi under the bus" and Cynthia even admitted that Kandi didn't say that! PEOPLE NEED TO GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT!


Helloooo !! Yolanda Taylor but Kandi's fat ass can't even fit into lingerie will she be making it for plus size fat asses !! And will be sold in Mandee's !! Also seems like Sheree is taking a little disliking for Kandi her own sister and siding with that white trash Kim , just because kim has her act together now , she will always still be white trash !!


these chicks are straight crazy i mean they act like kids faydra is the only the only one who acts her age.....


I think the comment about Kim not being there holding black babies is racist. Not that anyone cares, just my opinion.


Thanks for the update, I can only take this show in small doses.
Cynthia may have Nice hairstyles, but underneath that hair, started
a lot of hostility between Sheree and Marlo by not being able to wait to tell that NeNe and Marlo that Marlo was Not invited to Sheree's friend party. I still say that Cynthia was as sneaky as a cat in racing over to inform NeNe and Marlo that they were Not invited. Now it appears that Sheree is stirring up trouble by calling all the way to North America to inform Kim about what is said over in South Africa. With frienemies like these who Need Enemies. Signing off!!


I would love to work with kandi on her own lingerie line make me rich and l will make her richer please email me. P.s let's talke about it.
